I used to watch boxing all the time then switched to MMA. I got sick and tired of the referees constantly interfeering with the fight. What I really dont get is why cant you clinch in boxing. It seems like second the two boxers clinch the referee steps in and separates them. Why cant the guys just fight out of it? Why do boxing commentators freak out and call it dirty. Its the same thing when I go to boxing gyms and spar with them. The moment they get close I clinch and strike. The boxing trainers then yell at me and tell me its dirty and that "this is boxing". Wouldnt boxing be much better if you had to fight your way out of the clinch every time?
