Should there be professional Boxing at the Olympics? (Now the only Olympic sport that's not open to professionals)

Undecided / Not sure
I don't care

With the same scoring system and number of rounds as the current amateur competion.
It could be the only way to get Mayweather and Pacquiao in the ring together.

    No. Two reasons:
    1: Why on Earth would top professional boxers fight against the best men for no money, when they normally fight against second-rate opponents for lots of money?
    2. Amateur boxing has dignity. Modern pro boxing has none. Why tarnish amateurs, who actually behave like men?

    And, as my own personal thought, I think that, the less professionalism in the Games, the better.

    Everything else allows pros, so why not

    I like seeing the amateurs fight in this

    Yeah but wouldn't something like a Mayweather/Pacquiao final be unmissable?
  • Raphy Wayne T... 2012/08/10 17:54:28
    That's the reason that it will never happen. They will be worried about the money lol.

    Yeah true, if they did meat up afterwards the fight wouldn't be worth as much money!
  • Raphy Wayne T... 2012/08/10 18:06:57
    Yeah. It would be good. But some of the guy/gals in the Olympic might move on to become big stars. Any how, what do you think about MMA in the Olympics. I seen something about that on yahoo or here. Can't remember to good

    Yeah, that could be ok, they need to reduce some other events though. I would take out some of the huge swimming program.

    How about ribbon and race walking. They can go away

    Yeah, I've never understood the reason for a walking race.
  • Raphy Wayne T... 2012/08/12 00:12:06
    I guess it's just for laughs lol
