This is the picture on msn website today that has become, for me, the biggest advert against boxing and I have been a big fan of boxing most of my life. But by word, seeing this picture of Nigerian Samuel Peter's face crushed by the mean gloves of Ukraine's Vitali Klitschko during the World Boxing Council (WBC) title fight in Berlin Saturday, 11th of October 2008, I felt the pain in my head. I pray to God that Samuel has heard the last of that killer punch - that is, no brain damage or serious side effect. What is the entertainment value of subjecting oneself to this type of punishment?
