Aren't these the same folks...

...who didn't have a problem turning Mike Tyson (with his dozens of pre-pro career arrests) into a modern day folk hero?pretty in pinkC'mon... does anybody really doubt that fighters are simply small interchangeable parts in a huge money-making machine?

"Women’s boxing will be an Olympic sport for the first time in 2012. Being asked to wear miniskirts is a little like saying, 'Come to the party, but use the back entrance – and dress like it’s Slutoween'."
Miniskirts, huh?

Let's face it people... these folks are basically modern day gladiators.

Frankly I'm a little surprised they haven't handed them swords & shields... or baseball bats... or put lions back into the mix.

How they dress them up is probably the least objectionable part of the industry.

Neo - think beach volleyball. Look at the required 'uniforms' for men and women.

ah, yes... beach volleyball... the sport of kings.

the only thing missing are the stripper poles. or fire ants on the losers side of the court.

i'm looking forward to such future olympic events as the naked dwarf toss... and co-ed roping.

i'm guessing caligula would be pleased.
