White Collar BrawlersPosted: December 10, 2013
a few days ago the subject of fighting came up in the ‘Sphere. Doc mentioned it as well on his twitter and in a post.
well, i’ve been hooked on this new show on the esquire channel. it’s an interesting premise: 2 men who’ve never been in a physical fight train for 6 weeks with a professional boxing trainer and settle their differences in the ring.
i was watching it with my boy Diaz, who’s a pretty big dude and i know he’ll swing. well, at work Diaz usually has his head phones on and watches movies on vodly. well, i watching the show and out of nowhere i heard, “damn he ain’t even trying.” while one guy was training.
so there we were, 2 guys watching a show about fighting. during this particular episode, one guy was a type A individual. he talked the talk, was the office bad-ass: a stereo-typical paper tiger. the other guy guy was a total beta, and it was obvious.
but i give it to the guy, he put his whole self into the training. the other dude didn’t really take the training that seriously. and the trainer commented on it a few times. when they finally got into the ring the beta guy was WAAAAAAAY out of his element. but he did manage to get in a few shots.
he lost the fight, but he gained something MUCH more profound.
he had gained a level of self respect he never thought he’d have in his life. both guys did. i’ve always been VERY wary of men who’ve never been in a physical altercation. it’s a part of manhood.i’m not saying it’s the solution to all your issues, but a man needs to have his lip/nose busted at least once.
if you get a chance, you should check it out. now get out there and learn to fight. fucking pussy. lol.
below is the fight i mentioned above.
