In Which We Write Some Boxing Haiku

I was going to start by guessing that this is the first ever boxing haiku post on the web, but then I googled it. Turns out there are quite a few boxing haiku out there, and there's even some person tweeting some. But this guy seems to be kind of an asshole.

Somewhat better are these boxing haiku from another boxing site, but I'm certain the talent at Bad Left Hook can do better. Will you join me in the comments below with your own boxing haiku? If we get enough good ones, I'll collect them and post them in a later thread. What you got? Here are some to start us off.

10 Drunk Boxing Haiku


Oscar vs. Tito

I had been ahead too long

under the bright lights,

so I rode my bicycle.

*

Teddy Atlas

Sometimes smart observations,

sound advice. Sometimes

the lime in the coconut.

*

Bernard Hopkins

It's impressive, sure, but he

mostly makes me feel

like an old, out-of-shape bum.

*

Don King

If your check bounces after

your first loss, you need

to find a new promoter.

*

A Silver Lining

Given the talk at most sites

it seems OK that

more people don't like boxing.

*

­Hope

A heavyweight mess, this sport

still crooked. Fuck it,

there's always Terrance Crawford.

*

James Toney

Like the Buddha I outgrew,

some fans understand

why they don't understand me.

*

Victor Ortiz

Oscar blessed me, billy-goat

idiot. Oh well,

you can't repair a light bulb.

*

MMA

"Striking" is when you attack,

not punch. I digress

and you enjoy "grappling."

*

Haunted

Then there are the tragedies.

Paul Williams talking

of comeback from his wheelchair.
