Professional boxers should NOT be fighting in the Olympics against amateur fighters. Someone could get seriously hurt. You dont PLAY boxing like other many other Olympic sports. This is a very bad idea. #MyTwoCents

Nonsense! As a matter of fact – All the pro’s lost in the Rio Olympics. A professional fighter is in a clear disadvantage if he fights in an amateur ring and under amateur rules. I’ve practically spent hundreds of rounds sparring with the amateurs, I know what I’m talking about!

Bro, there are levels to this. Are u trying to tell me that at your physical peak as a pro, you would be disadvantaged stepping into a ring for 3 rounds against an amateur fighter from third world country who doesn’t have the same training resources as u? 🤦🏾‍♂️ I know I wouldn’t be!
