    Because those are two different incoherent statements by you. I had nothing to comment on about the Jusyk part.

    Not making it about Floyd or the Eastern european boxer that beat him, that's nonsense.

    You didn't really comment on the part you quoted either.

    So why'd you bring it up?

    You know for a fact he's not of Spanish or other European descent? He looks a hell of a lot more Spanish/European than American Indian.

    Oh really, must be hard to look at yourself in a mirror then. After I got reported by someone and my ability to post got stopped you suddenly appeared like magic to flame me. Just perfect timing, almost as if you knew I got banned from that thread. But how would you have known that? Just coincidence surely....

    And if my quoting you bothers you so much why don't you just stick me on ignore?

    Has no bearing in boxing and really pisses me off, anybody that actually came up around boxing gyms has no time for that crap. I dare anybody to walk into a boxing gym and start being racist.

    I'm going to ask you nicely to stop quoting me before I bring admin on this like you did to me. Please stop harrassing me and posting off topic. I have nothing to say to you.

    Fine. That's all you had to do, be civil. From now on I will ignore your posts.... except if they are about a certain Ukrainian pugilist ;)

    I didn't read it. I'm not going to bother conversing with someone who is going to have a nervous breakdown if I disagree with them and report me to the moderators.

    This isn't going to last long if you keep taking sly shots at me. Seems like your remit. Report me to the mods so I can't post back and then attack me like a coward from safety. Now we can keep the peace as you requested or we can just carry this on. Choice is yours.

    Boxing is still a viable career option there.

    USSR had top quality juice, creating generations of medalists, making boxing rather popular.

    Boxing has always been big in Cuba but it was the Russians that helped Cuba establish amateur boxing and eventually becoming #1

    The old UDSSR amateur system and a decent sized population. Just look how well non-european former members of the Union like Usbekistan and the Kazakhs are doing (ok, the later could be considered half-european and is a multi-ethincal state, like Russia). Ethnicity or race aren't the main factors, it's the great amateur system.
    I also have to defend Seano, he always seemed to like Andy Lee and Froch and in MMA he was a huge Tim Sylvia fan. He's a bit of a natural contrarian, but I don't see any malice behind it.
