You think boxing is bad?
You may know that the world of professional boxing has several different sanctioning bodies, several different "champions" for each weight class, questionable decisions by judges and officials, and is littered with criminals -- not to mention constant controversy.
So the question is, what sport's shenanigans should be considered to be the next rung down the ladder from boxing? Is it pro wrestling, or is it world championship chess?
Chess fans have waited a long time for a unifying championship after years of nonsense, hoping for good matches and a deserving champion. Instead we are treated to the equivalent of being hit in the back of the head outside of the ring with a folding chair.
