Which stats say that? 🙂

No one. I don't following boxing. If not for the fact that this fight was at Yankee Stadium, or the fact that I have HBO, I wouldn't have even known the was a fight on Saturday.

But, for the record, I really admire the way boxers train. It's a great routine and they are in great shape - most of them, that is - much more so that most baseball players...at least baseball players before, say, 1988ish.
