What is the purpose of?.....

Boxers wearing Gigantic Shorts?

Watching the Klits/Haye fight, Haye looks like a 10 year old wearing Shaq's shorts or something.

What is the purpose of wearing shorts that are gigantic on you?

This is a phenomenon that i have always been curious about in boxing, i would think shorts that big would hinder your movement.

School me on the purpose of wearing the equivalent of hammer pants in the boxing ring.

 It lets them pull them up high enough that a liver shot looks like a groin shot and they can complain to the refs about low blows.

 Lennox Lewis wore his shorts up to his arm pits.


I think its ridiculous.
