Boxing, harder than it looks from the softness of the sofa.

I heard the Judgey McJudgesteins on Saturday, ripping in at heavyweight Amir Mansour and then Aron Martinez ending their nights on their stools in between rounds in Los Angeles on the Danny Garcia-Robert Guerrero undercard.

J Russell Peltz reps Mansour, who tried to take down ex-footballer Dominic Breazeale on a Fox-televised PBC card. Russell, thoughts on the fingers pointed at Mansour?

“They should get in there and try it themselves,” Peltz told me.

Our expectations of these guys are sometimes too high, and yes, the game has changed, with concussion and CTE info available to the masses. But here’s what Mansour was and is dealing with …

“Fractured jaw,” Peltz told me. “Ripped tongue required stitches inside and outside ÔǪ last night at hospital until 1 a.m., L.A. time. Going to UCLA hospital today for evaluation.”

Something for all of us to chew on the next time we are in sofa warrior mode, wondering why boxers aren’t built like they used to be.
