    When Jack Johnson fought, definetly. Now with Don King in charge of one of the most important promotion companies I can't see anyone able to call this sport racist. Crooked yes, racist no.

    you have have been given a valid think approximately regards to the race stuff however the UFC is fading quickly. they have one guy on the actual who fights a pair of times a year and that's relatively it. Brock and Cain took are long gone so now its basically Silva and Bones.

  • Everyone bleeds red, i think boxers understand that. They hate all colors equally.

    Yes, but the "slavic brotherhood" will change that in the coming years.

    Yes it is very racist. Look how people treat the russian champions. Those guys will cripple any fighter from the innercity projects.

    I don't see how you can call it a racist sport. Black men beat up on white men. White men beat up on black men.Black men beat up on black men etc. There is no discrimination among idiots.

    since racism is everywhere in this country,i would say it is in boxing and other sports as well.
