 I took a quick glance at the sight on the AFL-CIO organizing boxing at
http://www.uhu.org/boxing/union.htm

As you can see at the site, they are attempting to bring some sanity and
dignity to a
sport which exploits the participants (boxers) to the point of them having
so little protection for the present and the future.  I am sure that many
of the people in rec.sport.boxing are aware of the other sports which
benefit significantlly from having a union.  A pension fund would be good,
then so many boxers wouldn't have to do desperate things.  

I'm a big fan of boxing, I admire the courage of boxers that master the
sweet science.  If anyone has further information on this effort I'd be
interested in hearing from you.

If you really admired them, you would not look down on them as victems.
That's your ego, and the socialists that would protect them from
themselves.
Because they care about THEM and nobody else does.....
It is a wonderful world ain't it...
As long as they take vredit for others courage, they are all right with
you...
You are a true american....
*** YOU...
