The Sad Decline of Olympic Boxing

This article from Slate is the best I've seen at describing what a mess Olympic boxing has become.


  1. They were talking about this on PTI the other day and I guess it's been bad for a while. Wilbon actually left the Seoul Olympics he was so angry about the Roy Jones Jr. mess.

  2. My goodness, what happened at the 1984 Los Angeles games that they cut off in that History Channel clip?

    That's awful about Roy Jones Jr. I had never heard that story, and I was rocking it way too hard in the summer of 1988 to be paying any attention to the Olympics.

    Cheating is so stupid.
