This is just a personal opinion but I think it's about time Ala change its motif. Ala's black trunks are jinxed from the very start. Fung shui experts say wearing black especially during sports activities kind of sucks the energy off the person. That is probably the reason why it's uncommon to see athletes wearing uniform of such color. Take the Pac for instance. Has anyone seen him use black trunks in any of his fights? 8)

Dunno, but girls like to tease you in their black underwear, and they seldom run out of energy...

Well, maybe because they are already impervious to it. You see, all in your list except for Tito Trinidad are black fighters.

You have a point there bro, but that one you're alluding to is'nt boxing; besides, girls generally have more stamina than us when it comes to....you know, things like that.

ALA boys doesnt lack stamina. Its their style. Their style relies heavily on their legs to work from the way they hold their stance to their defense. If it was about stamina, they wouldnt be able to keep throwing punches up until the late rounds. ALA boys still throw a lot of punches on the late rounds but they are flat. They lose their legs.

Its because they fight like amateurs. They base it on the amateur system. But they should realize that in the amateurs, you dont fight 12 3 minute rounds.

Is there a peer-reviewed article on "The Effect of Trunk Color on Probablility of Winning Among Boxers" in which the study really considered sufficient sample size?

IMO the lack stamina is cause by lack of nutrition, their body may look great but they are weak and brittle, in truth they are malnourished. They are not having the right proteins, vitamins and minerals to build a healthy strong body. How can you last long if you are eating only caned sardines and noodles throughout your training?

It's purely because of their conditioning method. They don't work hard enough for their cardio like Pacman does. Pacman trains harder than the fight itself so that the fight will be easier. That's the main difference.

Only one reason: Conditioning/Training. No such things as the color of shorts...

LACK OF STAMINA IS AN ISSUE OF SCIENTIFIC CONDITIONING AND NUTRITION CHECKING! IT IS HIGH TIME FOR ALA STABLE TO REVIEW THEIR CONDITIONING PROGRAMS. THEY HAVE THE SKILLS BUT NOT SO MUCH WITH THE STAMINA LEVEL!
