  •  The truly ironic thing... (0+ / 0-)

    ... is that most of the gay men I know are stunningly buffed out.  Great boxer though he is, Manny is only about five-foot-six and less than 150.  I highly recommend that he not try to put any gay men 'to death' personally, he'd likely wind up eating curbstones.

      •  Why? (0+ / 0-)

        Boxing certainly makes you tough, but it doesn't do you much good when being grappled, wrestled, or joint-locked.  Watch any MMA match for confirmation of that.  It's also not much use in a bar or street fight (and please don't ask how I know that... oh, the embarassment...)

        •  ok, guys who know jujitsu or something, (0+ / 0-)

          if they're bigger than Manny despite not being pros, might do ok.  But the dude can take a punch and if he gets any jabs in, forget it.  I don't really follow any kind of fighting, and Mayweather is also a spousal abusing asshole, but it seems the only person who doesn't want him to fight Pacquaio is Pacquaio.   That said, not willing to fight Floyd Mayweather is not the same thing as not being able to fight random gay muscleheads.  Mayweather'd kick their asses, too.

          •  You're absolutely correct... (0+ / 0-)

            ...most trained fighters can take an untrained opponent unless there's a truly massive physical disparity.  And the secuirty of fighting in a ring means that you have the ability to concentrate on one opponent.  I was rather thinking of the "one lone asshole vs. several indignant no-way-am-I-your victims" scenario (hence the bar brawl reference).  All the championship belts in the world won't help you when you're blind from alcohol in your eyes and you're being pummeled from four directions simultaneously while a heavy wooden stool is being smashed into your back.

            Unless you're that guy from "Oldboy", of course.  ;-)
