Title: Violence at Boxing
Post by: jaff_no1 on October 16, 2017, 10:16:16 AM
Following the posts on the Groves thread what is everyone's thoughts on what can be done?

I've never seen as many fights break out as I did Saturday night and considering there was 7k there at the most was quite shocking.

I can't see an alcohol ban happening as too much revenue would be lost. Coke also seems to be a big problem now judging by the ques for the cubicles. When someone is seen at ringside like on Sky taking coke it is clear it is a major issue

I'm not saying everyone has to behave like angels but it seems trouble is on the rise at boxing

I went to Calzaghe v RJJ a few years ago and nothing kicked off there. When I have been to fights at MSG & MGM Grand it amazes me how Americans manage to que in an orderly fashion for the toilets and don't find the need to piss in plastic glasses on the concourse

I think generally overseas the atmosphere in general seems less tense.  Only time I've seen trouble abroad was instigated by Warrington's fans when he was on the undercard of Abraham v Smith in Berlin. 

Much more of an effort needs to be made to clamp down on the drug use as that certainly seems to be a catalyst for a lot of the problems with guys having a few lines and then thinking they are Muhammad I'm Hard Bruce Lee.  Then again, you see the state of Kalle Sauerland at the fight on Saturday and find it hard to believe that cracking down on coke use will be high up on some promoters agenda's.

I saw some try hard ask Hearn what time it was acceptable to start drinking for the AJ fight on Twitter.  He suggested 11am.  Very responsible given the current climate.

Casuals.  Simple as that.  So long as boxing continues to chase the Buck rather than perform as a serious sport, expect more and more trouble.  One of the reasons I don't go any more

The other being the ability to make it past round 2 :D

Fair point, Iím certain this topic will be going for a long time....Saturday will likely boost it a couple more pages.
