Phil Anselmo Talks Boxing
Since he was young, former PANTERA and current DOWN frontman Phil Anselmo has been obsessed with boxing. A microcosm of the battles between mankind over the ages, a reflection of the principles of social Darwinism and a display of agility, stamina and strength, boxing is considered by some — including Anselmo — to be the ultimate sport.
As a warrior, a motivator and a victor, Anselmo can relate to many of the boxing greats. With PANTERA, SUPERJOINT RITUAL and DOWN, he has dealt with an abundance of adversity, surprises and ultimately, triumphs. These, he compares to the challenges a boxer faces in the ring. In the clip below, Anselmo discusses the similarities he sees between rocking with DOWN and swinging like current WBA Heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev (clip courtesy of Headbanger's Blog; note: the video stream is NOT available to non-U.S. residents).
