What Really Grinds My Gears #6 -- Boxing Graphics

You know what really grinds my gears? Boxing graphics.

"Thrown/landed" -- just let me watch the frickin' fight. It only counts if the judges say it does, and 34.7% of fights are fixed, so why keep track on screen. And when Lennox Lewis fights Andrew Golata, do we really need a graphic saying:


Lewis -- Red
Golata -- White/Red

? Is one guy not black with dreadlocks and the other guy not white with a crew cut? Is that going to change during the match? Is Golata gonna turn black or is Lewis going to fashion his hair after Golata's?

So that is what really grinds my gears.

Enough for today.

What about the lack of quality heavyweights?
