Boxing is a brutal and bloody sport, so it should be no surprise if boxers are cut from rougher cloth than the general citizenry. At the same time, to master the sport well enough to have any sort of professional career takes extreme self discipline and hours of technical training. So for a lot of reasons, a fighter is not your average cat.
At the same time, an individual sport like boxing attracts a wide array of personalities. True enough that a boxer is not your average type of person. But that doesn’t mean there is any such thing as an average type of boxer.

RSR readers and the boxing world enjoyed yesterday’s Groupie Confession from that world renowned boxing writer “Babar”, which you can see at the percentage the article has received thus far, (10%). Well, as all Groupie Confessions articles do, they have brought another writer out of the closet who wants to bare his soul to start on the path to righteousness.
“Tubby” (the name this boxing writer wished to go by) has come to the Vinman to have his story told to the boxing world which he feels by coming clean now, has allowed Manny Pacquiao to avoid life threatening surgery. Now would you say that Tubby showed true compassion towards Manny? I would!
In this latest Groupie Confession, we hear from “Tubby” who comes clean about his worshipping Manny Pacquiao in many suck off articles he has written.

He lost to both of then – though his encounter with Mayweather on May 5, 2007 was at least competitive. So competitive in fact, that one judge scored the fight in De La Hoya’s favor.
Why De La Hoya stopped working off his jab that night, will always be a mystery.
There was no mystery in what happened to De La Hoya when he tangled with Pacquiao on December 6, 2008. Pacquiao did whatever he wanted. He outworked, outpunched, and outdid De La Hoya in every possible way. The result was eight rounds of pummeling before his corner stopped the fight
Recently, De La Hoya discussed a potential mega-fight between his vanquishers, Messrs. Mayweather and Pacquiao.
“We’ve worked with Mayweather now for the last six of his fights,” said De La Hoya during a recent interview with NBC Sports Network. “Great fighter, great athlete, great reflexes. I think stylistically, Mayweather has the upper hand because of the fact that he’s faster and that he’s more precise. Pacquiao, he’s a machine. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a tremendous fighter. It would be a tremendous fight. But I would give the edge to Mayweather.”
Mayweather, 35, looked good in defeating Miguel Cotto two months ago in Las Vegas. Though some feel he may be slowing down, this boxing scribe (who was there) doesn’t agree. Mayweather fights the way Mayweather feels like. He felt like rumbling with Cotto that night.

Amir Khan got blasted out of there by Danny Garcia on Saturday, putting the sport of boxing on blast. Khan had big things in mind for his future, including a potential showdown with Floyd Mayweather, JR.
Well while Mr. Pound for Pound is busy trying not to drop the soap in jail, Manny Pacquiao is looking ahead to a potential showdown with Timothy Bradley in a rematch or Juan Manuel Marquez. Pacquiao has lost much of his luster after the loss to Bradley, but the leaches known as “groupie writers” have not lost their love. They are lost in love as Air Supply would say, and they continue to demand that Pacquiao be proclaimed God. I would suggest he keep it in my pants before he gets that distinction.
Now the response to my “Groupie Confessions” Series has been amazing. The amount of people out there sick and tired of suck up Pacquiao articles is huge and they all want this fluff, suck up, knob job sort of journalism to cease. This demand has forced some so-called writers to step forward and try to make right in the business by confessing their boxing sins. Here is another self proclaimed “widely respected” boxing writer, and his confession:
