I know nothing about boxing, either, but I do know that psyching the other guy out is an objective. A guy who shows off a big dong is saying that he's more of a man than his opponent.
I just watched a weigh-in video, and at least a couple of the guys must have "growers", because they sure didn't show much. By displaying it they're saying that it takes REAL guts to reveal a small penis. And I guess it does.
In any case, boxing is the only sport that routinely puts the athlete on naked display, and I suggest that it is for the macho factor.
