    What are some of the most interesting and/or strange excuses you've heard as to why a fighter lost a fight?

    Of course we are all well aware of the shoulder injury of Manny pacquiao

    Wladimir Klitchko thought he was possibly drugged after completely gassing the fu*k out against Lamont Brewster.

    Alexis Arguello posited the notion of some sort of special drink that Aaron Pryor had in their first fight.

    what are some of the other ones you've heard?

    Pacquiao- I was wearing the wrong gloves, I was wearing the wrong socks, I had marrage problems

    Bradley did not wear socks in his first fight with Pacquiao, thinking that he was emulating Mike Tyson (who always wore socks, just no-show socks). That was bizarre, because he intentionally did something he had never done in the biggest fight of his life to emulate somebody who does not even do that.

    George Foreman said he was drugged before his Ali fight. He said the water he drank had a medicinal taste and he almost spit it out.

    Paulie blamed Al Haymon in front of a live TV audience and arena full of fans for his decision loss to Broner.

    haha almost spit it out.

    *thinking to himself* "This tastes like geritol; maybe old pond water. What do I do? I shouldn't swallow it, I know that. Hmmm it's already in my mouth though. Oh shit, down it went."

    Bradley never claimed he had 2 broken legs, I'm not sure why you keep saying that. He injured both ANKLES in the first fight, one that a blind man could see when it happened and he claimed he hurt his leg during the fight in the rematch, which was probably an excuse.

    Duran claiming he quit vs Leonard because he had to poop.

    Pac having a teaspoon of blood taken before the Morales fight.

    Shane Mosley wearing new shoes vs Pac.

    Zab having a "fucked up promoter" vs Tszyu.

    Juan Manuel Lopez claiming the ref had a gambling problem and thats why he stopped the first Salido fight.

    In addition to partying and slacking off during training, Mike Tyson said he had a venereal disease going into the ring for the Buster Douglas fight.

    Not making excuses for these guys, but the preparation it takes to be in a prize fight is pretty crazy. Yes they make excuses and whine, but some of them put 110% effort for days/weeks for something that lasts no longer than 36 minutes (12 rounds).
