WHITE KNUCKLES: Mike Alvarado-Brandon Rios Preview

Both men put drama into what is, after all, a blood sport (ritualized violence staged for the atavist in all of us), and without that sense of stylized action, you have a Chad Dawson bout. Boxing can be compared to what director Sam Fuller once said about his own profession: "Film is like a battleground. Love. Hate. Action. Violence. Death. In one word . . . emotion." Remove "death" (except for its symbolic counterpart, the 10-count) and you have a working definition of prizefighting. From The Cruelest Sport
