BOXER LOSES HIS MIND, BITES HIS OPPONENT IN THE 5TH ROUND
Boxing! I really want to love boxing. But it is totally brutal as a sport. I have friends who do MMA and I think they’re nuts. But MMA doesn’t seem to have these problems, even though it’s way more dangerous. But a couple weeks ago, the British undefeated heavyweight Kash Ali went way too far in his fight with David Price. It caused the judges to immediately disqualify him and declare Price the winner of the bout. So what happened? Ali, for some reason, tackled Price to the floor in the 5th round. Unlike the MMA, that’ a big no-no in boxing. But then he bit Price on his stomach! Biting is a big no-no everywhere, unless you’re Hannibal the Cannibal.
So in boxing a disqualification is called getting DQ-ed. For Ali, this is his first loss, ever. But clearly it was deserved. He left a clear and disturbing bite mark in Price’s stomach. The bout was in Liverpool, and the crowd there was beyond incensed with Ali’s stupidity.
So as he exited the arena, he needed protection from several security guards. But the crowd pelted him with food from the arena as he scuttled by. It’s not the kind of scene you ever think to see in a boxing arena. But if you’re a fan of boxing, you’d have every right to be pissed. First, they didn’t get to see the full fight or the true winner. Second, who the fuck bites his opponent in boxing?
BITTEN VICTOR REFUSES REMATCH WITH PREVIOUSLY UNDEFEATED “ANIMAL”
Ali, at least, knew to be contrite afterwards. He said, “It was a stupid thing what I did, ridiculous. There’s no excuses for it. I think just the build-up to the fight- It’s my first time boxing on a big stage, I was so pumped up I just wanted to fight. The street mentality just kicked in, it was stupid. – I’ve got nothing else to say, just it was out of order and I apologise to him.” Price wasn’t too forgiving, however. Price said, “He said ‘let’s do a rematch. But I don’t want to share the ring with an animal like that.”
