wrestling aspect is a really vague way to put it. You don't like takedowns? or clinching? or lay and pray? what part of the wrestling do you not like?
tbh MrMister only mentioned the wrestling aspect, not the ground game.
Boxing was at its best a long fucking time ago. There is no question. Notice I did mention fights that took place in the 70s/80s. It's a damn shame too and you're right promoters/greed ruined the sport. Mayweather and Pac should've fought three times by now at least.
I use vague terms because I'm not properly informed. I don't like it when they do nothing, much like clinching in boxing. When there is action, it's great, but it seems rare, or maybe I've been unlucky in the fights I've seen. The action is really tense when that hold is being locked in and the poor bastard is doing everything he can do avoid it. It's great that fights can end in the blink of eye when it's on the ground.
