The most amazing interview with a boxer I have ever read: The Ring interviews Pungluang Sor Singyu

13

I don't know how many people caught this on The Ring website the other day, but this interview is just amazing! I mean, I realize cultures are different and people from different parts of the world have different values and different mentalities, but Jesus Christ this interview sounds like it was taken in 1910 and the subject was a 5-year old. I am at the same time charmed and shocked at the utter innocence and naivety of Pungluang. For me, some of the highlights are: "We love African people, they are very nice (...). They are black color and so nice in smiling with bright white teeth." "The promoter treated us well. The promoter gave us breakfast, lunch and dinner." ... Because you know you were well compensated for a world title fight when you got not one, not two, but THREE warm meals for it! Right, you guys? Am I right?! Plus the chicken fighting, plus the full Buddhist lecture, plus the "chicken noodle in a soup selling a bowl to people for a dollar", plus the movie "King Naresuan", there is A LOT of stuff happening in that interview, you guys have to read that !!!
