Favorite Boxing Site?

What's your favorite boxing site? I'm partial to Boxingtalk.com. They seem better connected than the other big sites and consistently offer quality material, especially with their interviews. With similar sites, like Ringside Report, you often get the feeling they're struggling for content, and while I've enjoyed some of their articles, their writing is pretty uneven.

Boxingtalk has at least one disadvantage: their best content is usually "for members only," but at six bucks a month, I can't complain too much. And their video library makes it worth it.

There's something to be said for the blog format, though. It seems more real. In the end, guys like Scott aren't trying to make a living at what they do (the money is basically nonexistent). He does this, I'm pretty sure, because he loves talking about boxing, and you can tell from the writing. I like his posts because they're free of that "let me try to demonstrate what an expert I am" feeling. He simply says what he believes and lets his audience decide for themselves.

I sometimes enjoy the give and take of message board conversations, but I hate wading through the flames and idiocy to find worthwhile posts. Ideally, I would love this site to have more of that kind of writer/reader exchange. We've seen a little more action in the threads for these posts lately, and it would be great to see more. We can tell from the site's hit meter that more and more of you are reading. I think I can speak for all of the staff at BLH when I say we really love hearing your responses, even the smackdowns. Good conversation is the only real reward around here, and that's fine with me.
