Title: Boxing World continued..
Post by: MURP on November 04, 2004, 05:30:08 PM
trying to keep the amount of massive threads down a bit.


anyone else hear that Max Kellermans brother was murdered a couple weeks ago?   Supposedly he was good friends with that boxer who punched his opponent out in the ring barehanded... and that boxer was staying with Kellerman.  Police are looking for him.

I missed the last Klit fight... hopefully on demand.  anyone see it?

did anyone catch the Tszyu/ Mitchell fight Saturday night? It was a rematch of their first one 3 yrs ago. Mitchell was stopped by TKO mainly due to a bum knee. He was wanting and talking about this rematch since then. Well he got his shot, right on his chin 3 times down with a 3rd round TKO victory for Tszyu. Tszyu had not foguht in over 22 months. It was an exciting 3 rds.

Reports out of England have undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins putting his four titles on the line against "The Battersea Bomber" Howard Eastman on February 19. Expect Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions to promote the fight.


 :boo I do not like this fight at all. I wish a jr. middle would step up, a super middle come down and give Hop a good fight. He can only fight guys in his division, but no one really wants to fight this guy, which is good thing in a way.

from fightnews on Holyfield:

Former four-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield was easily outpointed by Larry Donald Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. Donald was simply too young (at age 37!!), too fast and too good for the faded ring legend as he landed hard combinations almost at will. Holyfield was only able to muster one shot at a time, but gave fight fans one short glimmer of his former brilliance when he rocked Donald in the tenth. Unforunately for Evander, he didn't have the energy to follow up. Donald took the last two rounds and won 119-109, 119-109, 118-109. Donald improves to 42-3-2 with 24 KOs. Holyfield falls to 38-8-2 with 25 KOs. He has now just won two of his last nine. When asked if he would continue his career, Holyfield responded "Why not?" He said he still believes he can win the heavyweight title, but conceded that he may reconsider plans to continue after having time to think about it.

couldnt get the link to work right... but Holyfield is suspended in NY

Quote
NEW YORK - Evander Holyfield was suspended indefinitely by New York boxing officials in the wake of his loss Saturday night to journeyman Larry Donald.

The suspension means the 42-year-old former four-time heavyweight champion will have to seek medical clearance if he wants to fight again.

After losing a lopsided decision to Donald, Holyfield said he still plans to fight. Holyfield won only one round on one scorecard and two on the other two in the 12-round fight.

Holyfield has won only two of his last nine fights, and took a beating a year ago from James Toney. Donald didn't hurt him, but Holyfield landed only 78 punches of his own over 12 rounds, according to ringside statistics compiled by Compubox.

Holyfield told the New York Daily News on Monday that the New York State Athletic Commission was involved in a "conspiracy" to get him out of boxing and that he would contest the ban.

Evander has to pay for all 300 of his kids around the country.  That is a lot of child support payments, and considering he is a "rich and famous" boxer, they are probably seeking rediculous money from him.
He needs to realize that his health is more important than his riches going bye bye to greedy groupies.

Eastman vows to KO Hopkins!
Middleweight title challenger Howard Eastman says he's going to knock out Bernard Hopkins and deny him his record 20th world title defense when they meet February 19 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "I'm very serious about what I do and say and I am telling you I will knock him out in five rounds," Eastman told Sporting Life. "I don't share the view that Hopkins is the best fighter in the world today for one second."

 :-D at "Audrey". It's about time Harrison shut his mouth, stopped hanging out at z-list celeb parties and fought someone good. Even I could beat up half the bums he boxed since turning pro. Yet you read all the time about how he feels "disrespected". In terms of British heavyweights I have rooted more for Lewis, Bruno even Herbie Frickin' Hyde than that gobshtein.

I kind of admire Lewis's motives for wanting to fight Klitschko. He's pissed 'cos Klitschko has been telling everyone he deserved to win that fight. Either he knew full well Lewis had retired, or if he came back he'd have to fight him, thus guaranteeing a big payday. Either way, Klitsch wins. I hope Lennox kicks his arse. :evil

Instead he showed up like Buster douglas facing Holyfield a over weight disgrace, and he still "won" the fight. Dude Take the 39 mil. Get your lazy butt in shape and put this fool to bed before toney, Peter, tua, or some one else does....

I love Gatti's heart, but a fight against Mayweather (he has to beat spinks too) maybe a repeat of the Delahoya beat down. Extremely quick fighters are not a good matchup for Gatti. This weekend should be a good one though...

Trinidad-Winky is official!
Promoter Don King has officially announced Felix Trindad vs. Winky Wright. The bout will take place May 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will be available on HBO Pay-Per-View. The match will be fought at 160 pounds. "It wasn’t easy to get this deal done—in fact it was quite difficult, but I persevered and my never-say-die attitude prevailed," King said. "Whenever two great champions are asked to step into the ring against one another, a great deal of consideration takes place on both sides. I knew it was simply a matter of time before I would get this deal done because in the end both Tito and Winky like to fight, and these are boxers who just don’t walk away from a challenge. This is going to be a must-see fan’s fight and a great event."

The one and only Executioner Sucka ;D

Trinidad is as real as Sammy Sosa, his dad is a world class prick, and Tito was the chosen until B hop got a hold of him and rocked his world. The guy only survives when people stand in front of him and try and slug it out. Hop worked his a$$ and stuck and moved, and just broke him down round by round. Winky can do the same. I would love to see a Winky Hopkins card, what a great fight that would be...

Klitschko-Rahman at MSG?
It looks like WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will face Hasim Rahman on May 7 at Madison Square Garden. According to the Baltimore Sun, both Klitschko advisor Shelly Finkel and Rahman promoter Don King have named the Garden as the likely site.....Other DKP cards in the works are WBO heavy champ Lamon Brewster vs Andrew Golota with Ricardo Mayorga vs Javier Castillejo on the undercard. That card is planned for April 16 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis.....also on the drawing board is an April 30 card featuring WBA heavyweight champ John Ruiz vs James Toney. A rematch between IBF champ Chris Byrd and Wladimir Klitschko is also almost done.

Yes!! Toney finally gets a shot at a real title... He will beatthe Quiet man worse then RJJ did!! Klit will be Ko'd by THe Rock (as long as he doesn't come in at 255 again) Golota will beat Brewster, and THe other klit will beat Byrd.. Finally some decent bouts in the heavy's

Out of town all weekend, didn't get a chance to see the fight. good to see the X get his 20th defense. He will probably fight Johnson/Trinidad/Taylor next. I think it will be in that order only for payday. I think Taylor is the most dangerous fight for him, as far as a lose lose situation. Beat him and he was supposed to beat the young gun, lose and it is an upset.

 It was funny when he stated that he was going to KO Hopkins in 5 rds. I really did not worry at all about this fight. Eastman is ok, but his toughest fight befroe fridayn ight was against Joppy, a loss, even though he knocked Joppy down late in the fight.

Anymore British guys you got over there. i am looking for mike to fight Williams again, for pride of the country ;) here is a letter from Williams to Tyson.

from boxingcentral.com:

Quote
Dear Mike,

I've read on the internet that you are now back in training and ready to resume your boxing career. I also read that your new trainer, Buddy McGirt, seems to believe you can still be a major player in the heavyweight division and I know some fans out there believe you can once again become heavyweight champion of the world. I don't know about that, but what I do know is that for any comeback of yours to be taken seriously by boxing fans you must first come through me, the man who knocked you out in four rounds in July 2004.



 
Williams and Tyson
Your fight with me last summer was called 'Return for Revenge' but it appears Mike Tyson doesn't actually go for revenge at all. Of the four men to knock you out - Buster Douglas, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis and myself - you've only tried to even the score with one of them in Holyfield.

I wonder why. Perhaps 'Iron Mike' is only interested in facing opponents he knows he can intimidate and dominate? I guess we'll soon see. Since I beat you, you've never once given me any credit for besting you inside four rounds. Instead, you've come out with excuse after excuse for what happened in that Louisville ring and now I see you've described me as 'a journeyman' and dismissed my victory as a fluke.

Mike, I know you are a boxing historian so how come you are so unfamiliar with boxing's tradition of showing an opponent respect after the fight has happened? Are you so deep in denial? You also said over the weekend that you want to start with 'an easier fight in May or June'. Well, why not fight this 'journeyman' in an easy fight and prove to the world that my win over you was actually just a stroke of rotten luck for you? I dare you to fight me again, anywhere, anytime. You can even have another biased referee who takes two points per round off me for non-existent fouls, if that will make you feel more secure.

The rematch between the two of us is a natural fight which would be appealing to boxing fans around the world. Our first fight was one of the most exciting fights of the year and was certainly the most entertaining heavyweight battle of 2004. Mike, you need to beat me to prove that you should still be taken seriously as a legitimate heavyweight rather than a touring sideshow, knocking over part-time fighters, which I hear is one of the plans on the table for you. And, to be honest, after my fight with Vitali Klitschko two months ago I need another big win to prove that I am worthy of another run towards the world heavyweight champion.

This fight makes sense for me just as much as it makes sense for you; assuming, of course, you believe you can win. A rematch between us wouldn't need any hyping and I'm coming off a bad knockout loss myself, too, and so you'll never have a better chance to beat me and 'prove' that my victory was the' fluke' you claim it to be. If you really think what I did to you - pound you into the ropes and down in to the canvas with 26 unanswered punches - was an accident or the result of some mysterious knee injury then you'll have no problem instructing your people to call my promoter. Let's do this.

The only reason this fight won't happen is because you or those in charge of your career don't want it to. Mike, I'm returning to training now, too, and am also targeting a May or June comeback date. Pick up the phone and let's see if I can catch you with 26 more 'lucky punches'.

Yours in boxing

Danny Williams Heavyweight contender

The Department of Corrections will decide whether Spadafora will be allowed to go to a motivational boot camp, which could have him back on the streets as soon as August. The unbeaten Spadafora shot his girlfriend in the abdomen after an argument.

Gatti vs Mayweather is set!
After feverish discussions and intense negotiations WBC super lightweight champion Arturo Gatti and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. have agreed to fight on June 25, 2005, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ, it was announced today by Main Events CEO Kathy Duva. There is a deal in place with HBO Pay-Per-View for the bout. Caesars Atlantic City and Bally’s Atlantic City will play host to the jr. welterweight championship showdown. The breakthrough in negotiations came when all parties involved agreed to switch around dates to accommodate Arturo Gatti’s training schedule. “All the parties were very flexible re-arranging dates and sites,” said Kathy Duva, CEO of Main Events, Gatti’s promotional firm. “This is boxing at its best with all sides working together—especially Bally’s Atlantic City President Ken Condon—to effect compromise and reach a solution where everyone wins, particularly the fans.” “I am so happy this is resolved,” said Gatti. “I can’t wait to get back into the gym so I can punish Mayweather come June 25” “The fight is on because this is the fight the public demands,” said Bob Arum, President of Top Rank, Floyd Mayweather, Jr’s promotional firm. “It will be the biggest jr. welterweight fight ever.” “This will be a great fight for the public,” said Mayweather. “And I want the fans to know that I will be victorious.”

Najeh fought last night on the contender and got his butt kicked.   After knowing that he took his own life, watching some of the things he said and the way he talked was a very strange preview as to his actions.  He was in some internal mental pain no doubt now looking back in hind sight.    Sugar Ray came on at the very end of the program and said they had set up a donation for Najehs young daughter if anybody wants to contribute funds.

you can watch some of his video here http://contender.tv.yahoo.com/01/index.html




in other events  Morales beat Pacquiao.  didnt see it on PPV, but it sounded like a good one to check out on HBO.  Fernando Vargas fights on HBO March 26th.  Wladimir Klitschko fights April 23rd.  Ruiz/Toney on April 30.

The clips (especially the ones that took place immediately after the fight) were really tough to watch. Seeing that little girl who will never really get to know her father and seeing her mother, who did her best to comfort her man at a trying time, was really upsetting. Stuff like that gets to me because I never got to know my own father very well.

I've never gotten hooked on a reality-based show before, but this one's pretty good. They got fighters instead of Toughman contestants, the fights are pretty good, Sugar Ray Leonard gives the show credibility (along with bringing in Foreman) , most of the fighters are enjoyable people, and I felt for almost every guy who lost. The only thing I don't like are the challenges. Challenges? Challenges!?! These guys are supposed to train for fights and they're carrying logs up a hill and towing trucks? C'mon, Sly. How hokey can you get? Other than that, though, I can't really complain.

Stallone's got a winner on his hands. This show is light-years better than the abomination Fox broadcasted a while ago.

Hopkins vs Taylor is on!
By Ryan Mickendrow
Undisputed middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins has confirmed to Fightnews.com that terms have been reached for a pay-per-view showdown with Jermain Taylor, likely on July 16. Hopkins had set a 24-hour deadline for a $1.5 million offer last week, but Taylor's promoter Lou DiBella rejected that offer. A deal was reached after Taylor's proposed purse was increased approximately 20%. (More to come)

THis is going to be a very interesting fight. Taylor is big like Hopkins with Power and speed. This will be Hopkins biggest Challange so far, as the young buck tries to dethrone the King. I can not wait for this one.

Here are the numbers on the fight:

   Taylor                                         Hopkins
26 yrs. old                                   40 yrs. old
height 6'1                                    heght 6'1

23-0-0 (17 ko's)                          46-2-1  (32 ko's)
Biggest fights:                             Biggest fights:
William Joppy UD 12                    Tito Trinidad TKO 12
Raul Marquez TKO 9                    Oscar Delahoya KO 9
                                                    Glen Johnson TKO 11
                                                    Roy Jones Jr. (Loss UD 12)

Man, this is the one fighter that worried me, I am glad that Hopkins is taking his biggest challange head on. The kid is powerfull, fast and tall. Could give Hopkins some trouble. I think Hopkins will keep him frustrated for the most part, but he has to watch out for a bomb from this kid.

not surprising, the Ruiz/Toney Presser got out of hand today.

http://www.fightnews.com/richardson129.htm

 As much as Toney can talk, Ruiz's trainer Norman Stone is a complete lunatic. This should be a half way decent bout, as long as Ruiz does not try and slow dance his way through the fight.

Quote
"I'm the best," declared Ruiz. "Yeah, the best of the worst," responded Toney. "Watch him start hugging when I hit him - 'Please don't knock me out'." Toney also boasted that he had more money than Ruiz. Ruiz said Toney talked too much. "I talk in my sleep," said Toney.

 :-D  :-D Toney has some classic lines from time to time.

Tyson-McBride presser!
By Julian Burgower
Iron Mike Tyson and Kevin McBride officially announced their June 11 fight at MCI Center today at a press conference in Washington D.C. Tyson (50-5, 44 KOs), accompanied by his three children, called Kevin McBride "cute" and promised that "it's going to be a trainwreck." McBride ((32-4-1, 27 KOs) commented "Everyone is cute in their own way." McBride, who hails from Clones, Ireland, added that he grew up idolizing Tyson, "but we haven't seen the best of Kevin McBride yet." He also stated it would not go the distance. McBride's promoter Richie Cappiello proclaimed that McBride would knock out Tyson within five rounds. When the fighters stood face to face, the 6'6 McBride towered over the 5'10 Tyson. The card will be a Showtime pay-per-view event. Scheduled for the undercard is Laila Ali.

Alright :-D I know he is washed up, but can't I hope for acouple tune up wins, and a shot at Vitali? I mean come on anyone with a punch has a  chance agaisnt Vitali!!

Is this guy as good as his record?  How old is he?  Im not sure Tyson is going to win this.  Unless this guy is a piece of meat.  But being 6'6" and with a record like that, Tyson has little chance IMO.  He's still my favorite all time boxer, but his time has been up.  :'(

Post by: phillymic2000 on April 13, 2005, 01:12:39 PM
here is his breakdown:

Quote
Sex  Male
Nationality  Irish
Alias  The Clones Colossus
Birth Name  Kevin Martin McBride
Global Id  IE-00-007386
License No.  MA036831
Hometown  Brockton, MA, USA
Birthplace  Clones, Ireland
Division  Heavyweight
World Rank  157
Date of Birth  1973-05-10
Age  31
Reach  82”
Stance  Orthodox
Height  6' 6
Trainer  Goody Petronelli
Manager  Self


His two toughest opponets have been Axel Schulz and DaVarrel Williamson

Axel Shulz is best known for taking Foreman the distance and he knocked McBride out in 9rds.

Williamson is best known for getting knocked the farg out by Wlad klit in the first round!! He ko'd McBride in 5rds.

I am only worried if Tyson is not taking this seriously, if he is training well, McBride cannot withstand his power shots. McBride is a slow plodder, that fits Tyson pretty good.

Don King is Hilarious, he is part Polish, Australian, Mexican & has roots in Indy. Of course these are all from where the fighters were. He even found a way to honor the pope for crying out loud!! Fireworks, smoke filled ring entrance, great show!!! Fighters were way to nice to each other.

Alright tomorrow night Toney and ruiz will hug, slug and probably throw some bombs here and there.

Tonight on ESPN2 at 11:30pmEST Samuel Peter fights Gilbert Martinez. Peter is a young heavy that has called out all the other guys in the division, he is 22-0 (19ko's) He is tough, but really has not been challenged yet. One of their common opponets is Jeremey Williams, Martinez was KO'd by Williams in the 9th (2002) Peter KO'd Williams in the 2nd (2004). Samuel has a lot of Power and is 6'2 and 250lbs. He is a big boy, could be an explosive knock out tonight.

Back to Toney and Ruiz:

Ruiz & Toney weigh-in at MSG!

April 27, 2005

By John G. Rodwan, Jr.

John Ruiz (41-5-1, 28 KOs) was the largest of the eight heavyweights who weighed-in in the lobby of Madison Square Garden Thursday afternoon. The WBA belt-holder weighed-in at 241 pounds. The first boxer on the scale was the man slated to challenge Ruiz for his title on Saturday night, James Toney (68-4-2, 43 KOs). Wearing a couple of T-shirts and blue jeans (but no shoes), Toney weighed 233 pounds.

The acrimony that characterized the previous day's press conference was again in evidence, though it was contained. Before Ruiz or Toney stepped on the scale, promoter Don King noted that "they don't like each other." The same could be said of their trainers. During the weigh-in and subsequent stare-down, the fighters' trainers, Freddy Roach and Norman Stone, surrounded by their respective teams, argued with each other in front of the table bearing the glove to be used Saturday, occassionally blocking photographers' view of the boxers. As Ruiz departed the stage, Toney repeatedly taunted, "You're soft." The "Quiteman" remained true to his nickname, silent and inexpressive.

Larry Donald (42-3-2, 24 KOs), who is returning to the Garden after success against Evander Holyfield in the same venue a few months ago, weighed 229 1/2. He's scheduled to fight Ray Austin (22-3-2, 15 KOs), who came in at 240.

DaVarryl Williamson (21-3, 17 KOs) weighed 221; Derrick Jefferson (28-3-1-, 21 KOs) was 235 1/2.

Israel Garcia (14-1, 8 KOs) is to meet Andre Oliynk (10-2, 9 KOs) in a six rounder. Garcia weighed 238 1/4, Oliynk 228.

Among those in attendance at the weigh-in were IBF champion Chris Byrd, Iran Barkley and HBO's Harold Lederman. Asked when the various title-holders were going to start fighting each other, Byrd said he's been wanting that to happen "for a long time." Who would Byrd like to fight next? "Vitali Klitschko, baby. Or the winner of this," he said, referring to this weekend's Ruiz-Toney bout, which King promised would be "provocatively beautiful."

Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: phillymic2000 on May 01, 2005, 09:15:25 PM
James Toney Baby!! I am so happy that he beat Ruiz. I give Ruiz credit for trying to change his style, but he looked like a deer in headlights for half the fight, Toney had him confused and worried the whole fight. Ruiz showed his usual tactics leaning extra hard on Toney's head during a clinch numerous times, and the 2nd round warning he got for hugging Toney and hitting behind the head. Toney was not in the best of shape and still owned Ruiz when he wanted to. Roy Jones Jr. was strangely complimenting Toney all night. A James Toney, in shape can defeat any of the Heavy's out there, The only ones that worry me are the Heavy Hitters, Rahman & Peter. Toney picks apart Vitaly or Brewster.  Oh and By the way Ruiz retires after the fight, maybe we won't see his punk TRainer Norman Stone anymore. Classless move after the fight leaving and not doing any interviews in the locker room. I cannot believe Ruiz thought he won that fight :-D

Ruiz retires! Toney challenges!
By David Greene at the post-fight conference
Although the James Toney-John Ruiz showdown was tame compared to the pre-fight hype, Ruiz dropped a bomb afterwards announcing his retirement. Ruiz choose not to attend the post-fight conference and instead declared his retirement from the locker room.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The fight may not have contained much in the way of fireworks but the post-fight comments of Toney somewhat compensated. “I did just what I said I would do……Get rid of him from the heavyweight division! Don King will throw him in the trashcan where he belongs!” Toney gave Ruiz credit for giving him the opportunity but he did not give the former two-time champ any credit for his performance: “I didn’t expect much from John because he is an average fighter. John Ruiz is stupid. He can’t change his style. He only knows how to fight one way.” Toney concluded in issuing a challenge to “anyone, anywhere, at anytime” although he specifically targeted Klitschko. With the Ruiz victory, Toney becomes the third middleweight champion – along with Roy Jones, Jr., and Bob Fitzsimmons - to capture a version of the heavyweight title.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While Ruiz did not attend the post-fight conference, he did say during his post-fight comments in the ring: “He’s a tough guy to fight. He moves around a lot. I connected a lot. I finished stronger and I won this fight.” Norman “Stoney” Stone, the longtime trainer, manager and friend of Ruiz did address the media at the post-fight conference simply stating: “He’s done.”
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Of note, both IBF champion Chris Byrd and contender Hasim Rahman attended the post-fight presser and spoke of challenging Toney.

Awesome brawl!  I wanted to see Jesse the dickhead go down.  Sugar Ray had a good point during the credits regarding Jesse just waiting for the right moment as Bosante? is more like a street brawler and leaves himself wide open.  He was tagging Jesse good though.  If he could have lasted one more minute.  I dread having to listen to Jesse for another week.

I think Jesse's cornerman gave him the knockout idea before round 5.  He was yelling "you need a knockout!!!!"   Jesse was getting his ass kicked the whole time and should have just used the uppercut like that before the final round if he knew Tony was open for it the entire time.

I think Jesse's cornerman gave him the knockout idea before round 5. He was yelling "you need a knockout!!!!" Jesse was getting his ass kicked the whole time and should have just used the uppercut like that before the final round if he knew Tony was open for it the entire time.

I just watched the fight again, and I'm not so sure Jesse just got lucky by throwing that uppercut. He tried using it in the first round, but Anthony caught Jesse with solid jabs before the uppercut could connect. Jesse got lucky by landing that first one in the fifth, but I think it may have been part of his corner's strategy.

As for Anthony, his style reminds me of Joe Frazier or Marvin Hagler; he cuts off the ring, he likes to crowd his opponents, he throws a lot of power punches and dishes out a lot of punishment. His defense, however, is porous. He takes a lot of shots and leaves himself open for uppercuts. A good counterpuncher would dismantle him.

The Corrales / Castillo fight was out of this world, I cannot beliver Corrales came back in the tenth like that, what an awesome fight.

Trinidad retires!
By Miguel Morales
Upon his arrival Sunday in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Felix "Papa" Trinidad announced that he is retiring from working in boxing. His son, middleweight contender Tito Trinidad, said that he will retire, too, if his dad won't be in his corner. Tito said that he and his father are responsible people and this will be a "definite decision."

 :-D yeah just like the first time toolbag!

Tito is like the kid at the playground who takes his ball and goes home when things do not go his way, sucker...

I guess Bernard Hopkins will now have to end his career with a fight against Winky Wright instead of Trinidad like he planned. He'll probably be disappointed because it will mean less money but it will make for a better fight.


And how about Peter Manfredo beating Alfonso Gomez last night on The Contender to reach the finals? It was an awesome fight and Peter finally got his revenge. I would love to see those two fight a rubber match on HBO in the near future.

Jesse vs The Snake this Sunday  for the right to face Peter in the finals, which will be aired live next Tuesday night.

Alright, some good fights coming up.

This weekend:

Kostya Tzyu (IBF champ) vs. Ricky Hatton for the IBF title at 140lbs.

Young and untested Hatton in his hometown, going after the hard hitting Kostya for his title. fight is actually being fought at 2am England time to fit Showtimes time frame. Kostya with a late round stopage (10th)

June 11th: Mike Tyson  ;D vs. Kevin McBride Heavy's

Which Tyson will show up? If it is the in shape one, after he demolishes the Irish Pud he should sign on to fight Ruiz for free, just to get a belt... Tyson Ko in Rd. 2

June 18th: Glenn Johnson vs. Antonio Tarver (for Johnsons World titles at 175lbs.

Tarver looks for Revenge, and if he gets it look for a third fight. If Johnson is the winner he will probably have his pick of RJJ or Hopkins (if hopkins beats Taylor). Johnson would probably pick Hopkins, who gave him his first loss. Johnson by split decision.

June 25th: Arturo Gatti vs. Floyd Mayweather (for Gatti's WBC title)

Thunder vs. Flash, This one has turned into a big time fued!!Gatti has had major problems with fights faster then him, DLH, Manfreddy and to make it worse Mayweather is much quicker then both of those opponets. Mayweather does have a suspect chin. My heart tells me Gatti, cause Mayweather is a punk IMO, my mind tells me Mayweather, but what the heck Gatti wins by Ko in the 6th after catching Mayweather on a counter.

July 2nd: Sam Peter vs. Tyrus Sykes:

Peter is the up and coming Ko artist in the Heavy's very dangerous and powerfull, he needs to work on his boxing skills a bit, but expect an exciting KO in this one!! Peter by way of a 3rd round TKO

July 16th: Benard Hopkins vs. Jermain Taylor (for Hopkins IBF/WBC/WBO/WBA belts)

Hopkins taking on the young lion of the Middleweight division. This one will be awesome. hopkins wants this one sooooo bad Taylor is young and strong but does not have the experience that Hopkins has. Hopkins by a UD.


An exciting June and July for boxing fans!!

I've been seeing a lot of commericial on tv over the last week or 2 pimping the Tyson/McBride fight.  But rather than pimping the actual fight itself, their "selling point" for getting the ppv is simply "With Mike Tyson, you never know what's going to happen."  IMO, it's pretty sad that that is the major selling point for a Tyson fight now.  They're trying to sell you on the "potential" shock value of what Tyson might do.  Will he bite another ear off?  Will he have his entire face tattooed?  Will he come out in women's underwear?  I think it shows just how far he's fallen over the last few years.  His name alone is no longer a major draw and they have to focus on his antics to sell the fight.

Hey Tyson is a changed man:

From DHB:

Quote
Welcome to neighborhood

WALLACE MATTHEWS

May 31, 2005

These days, Mike Tyson says his explosive temper surfaces only in time of need, such as a couple of weeks ago, when he spotted a shady-looking character lurking around the suburban Phoenix neighborhood where he has been living while training for his June 11 fight against Kevin McBride.

According to Tyson, he watched the man walk up and down the street several times before confronting him and angrily demanding to know what he was doing in the neighborhood.

"The guy was scared to death," Tyson said, laughing. "He was saying, 'Oh my God, Mr. Tyson, I'm sorry, I dropped my wallet somewhere on this block and I was looking for it.'"

Tyson said he felt "a little guilty" after he ran the man off - until he was thanked for his actions by several of his neighbors, who said they had noticed the man hanging around for a while and were frightened of him.

"You believe that?" Tyson said. "Now I'm the neighborhood watch! I'm Spiderman!"

That guy had to of crapped his pants!


Tyson's name is still a huge selling point. the MCI center in DC was sold out in 3 days :o thats nuts for a non title fight.  I just really hope that Tyson can make one last run at the title. IF is the big word, he is in shape and has some stanima and can continue to build on that then Ruiz will be cake walk, Brewster looks like he has to go through Krasnic after last weekend. Maybe we see a Klitschko vs. Tyson match >:D I know I am dreaming the Tyson of the past died that night in Japan against Douglas, but the Dude needs some Cash, and a big payday waits against Klitschko!

I can understand a 55 - 45 split since RJJ did beat him, but any undisputed champ taking a 30-70 split is just insane. RJJ got his twice, and the second one was against a man who Hopkins humiliated back in 1997. I would love for him to end it with a butt whuppin of RJJ, but first he has to get past Taylor :yay

I agree especially if he goes down closer to Hopkins weight.  I think Jones' problem has been that he has tried to switch weight classes so many damn times it finally has taken a toll on his body.  He has never been a fighter that took a lot of punishment in the ring until Tarver and Johnson.

Tyson looked like the Tyson of old the first couple rounds, but once his stamina ran out he was done. I couldn't figure out why a guy with a 40 lbs. weight advantage and 9 inch reach advantage wasn't utilizing his jab and was seemingly try to fight inside whenever he could. But after the 5th round it was obvious McBride's strategy was to wear Tyson down and frustrate him...which worked perfectly. Time for Tyson to hang 'em up.

With Tyson losing, Tyszu losing last week, it is a time of change for me in my boxers who i have followed. the guys I grew up watching are being beat, their getting old and retiring. I know it is natural, but It's tough. Hopefully Hopkins keeps going, and Toney can make a run at a Heavy title. There is plenty of Great young talent out there, I just am not connected as I was with the old timers. Sad week.

There is plenty of Great young talent out there, I just am not connected as I was with the old timers. Sad week. Thanks Mike, The good times you had in the ring were awesome, the bad times I could live without, but thanks! :'(

Dude I know your a Tyson fan but you didn't really expect him to make any sort of real comeback did you?  The guy hasn't been a fighter since before he went to prison.  I think you should be OK with Hopkins though he may have his hands full in July. 

As far as James Toney goes it really amazes me that he is a heavyweight contender it just goes to show that the heavyweight division is full of bums.  In fact I think every heavyweight contender out there right now would be a candidate for the Joe Louis bum of the the month club.

With tyson, ah I was hoping he could at least get Ruiz and claim that belt, but oh well. With Toney you shouldn't be that surprised. Toney is the best skilled fighter in the heavys by a loooooong shot. He has all the tools of a middleweight and the body of a heavy now. He is smaller in height. The division on a whole is down, with King owning three out of the four belts (Klitschko is the only non-King fighter) it will be hard to have them unify. King wants future options on Klit if he fights any of the other three belt holders, and that ain't sitting well with Klit. There are some young guns coming up in the division, but after Toney whooped Ruiz's Butt, the other champs may stay away from him.

Tarver put on a good show tonight in what turned out to be a pretty good fight. Johnson really didn't come alive till late in the fight. A little disappointing round 12 especially after such a great 11th, but Tarver did what he had to do to win. I'm looking forward to their 3rd bout.

The Quartey/Phillips fight was a snoozefest until the last 2 round.  :-o

I wasn't going to pay for the Gatti/Mayweather fight next week, but after the trash talking by Mayweather tonight I'm sold.  :deion

That fight was fairly boring for so many damn punches being thrown IMO, although I agree the 11th was great and then the 12th was terrible.  The 12th Reminded me of hockey when they trap and make it suck for the fans.    Im surprised Tarver kept that pace up for most of the rounds, although a lot of those punchers were pitter patter crap.   Anyway, Id watch a 3rd one.

I thought the fight absolutely sucked.  I don't think Tarver landed any real fierce combinations, like Murp said it was just a bunch of pitter patter crap.  I loved how Lampley was comparing the fights to Gatti/Ward what a joke. 

I cannot wait for this weekends fight, as much as I love Gatti he really is a long shot to beat Mayweather.  I was watching the Mayweather/Corley fight and Gatti/Ward II yesterday On Demand, it is quite clear who the superior fighter is.  Though Gatti has become a much better boxer the longer he has worked under McGirt.

Lastnight Manfredo was on the CN8 fights in the the crowd he was saying he will be looking for another fight with Mora or Gomez sometime in the near future.

I am with you doubleJ, I am torn cause I really want Gatti to kick the crap out of PBF. but PBF is so dangerous and Gatti has had trouble with quicker fighters (DLH/Manfreddy) this one will get ugly, these two guys hate, and I mean hate each other.  :evil

As dominating as Mayweather was the other night, Hatton is the man in the division UNTIL he is defeated. He beat the Man (Kostya Tyszu) So he is the man. No other fight is right at this time then Hatton / Mayweather.

Tyson ready to fight on

By Grantlee Kieza
June 30, 2005

FORMER world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is set to fight again in a multi-million-dollar tournament that could see a third bout with arch foe Evander Holyfield.

Despite a humiliating loss to mediocre Irish giant Kevin McBride in Washington on June 11, Tyson, 39, still believes he has the punching power to remain a major attraction in heavyweight boxing in a series of four-round fights.

His trainer Jeff Fenech will fly to Phoenix, Arizona, today to continue negotiations for a tournament featuring Tyson in a series of abbreviated bouts against the likes of Holyfield and another former heavyweight champ Riddick Bowe.

It would be boxing's equivalent of cricket's limited overs format or the new Twenty20 game.

Fenech says there has already been interest in the tournament from promoters in Las Vegas and Dubai.

"Mike does not want to go out of boxing as a loser against Kevin McBride," Fenech said.

"He is one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time and is still explosive for four rounds.

"He doesn't want to compete in 10- round fights because after 20 years as a big-name fighter it is hard to keep backing up in the gym.

"But physically he remains rock solid and very strong and believes he can still thrill fans with the style that made him the youngest ever heavyweight champ in 1986."

Advertisement:
Against McBride, Tyson lost two points for a head-butt, tried to break the Irishman's arm in a clinch and locked his teeth around McBride's nipple. But he was still ahead on points when Fenech retired him in his corner after round six.

"I cannot do this any more," Tyson said immediately after the loss.

"I am not going to lie to myself and I am not going to embarrass this sport. This is a great sport. This is a sport that has taken men with pretty humble lives and humble beginnings and put them in the position to rub shoulders with royalty."

The fight, Tyson's first since a knockout loss to Englishman Danny Williams a year earlier, drew a crowd of 15,472 to Washington's MCI Centre - proof that Tyson remains one of the biggest names in the sport.

The Daily Telegraph

Ready for side show Mike, maybe he can fight the "king of 4 rounders" Butterbean :-D

Saturday night a young Heavy named Samuel Peter fought Terrell Sykes. Peter is 24-0 (21ko's) He sent Sykes out with a well timed right, and them used a combo of head and body shots to end it. Sykes is not a top tier fighter, but many are saying that Peter is. He haas not been tested with a top 20 fighter yet, but the WBC has him ranked 4th. His skills are a question, but his power is not. This guy is fun to watch and hopefully will get a title shot soon, or step up with another top contender. His camp is tryingto get Vitali in the ring. He is only 24 years old, the youngest Heavy in Boxingrec.com's to 50 heavy's. The average age of the top 20 heavy's is a little over 30 years old.

they are trying to sell this fight because when they were amatures Makaev KO'd Vitali in 1 round. this fight is brutual, Maskaev is not even in the top 20.

I just watched a great fight on ESPN2.  Johnny Nolasco vs. Jason Litzau.  Ended in a 2-3 decision for Litzau, the now 13-0 undefeated youngster.  He was dropped in the fight, but came back to make a very very close decision.  I thought it was a draw.  I really did. 

Damned great fight, though.   Hats off to both fighters.

Hopkins was farging robbed. I could give a flying farg what the biased score card said. He landed more punches, threw less, had more power punches, and had a way higher % land! Taylor missed with EVERYTHING! He threw a flurry of punches but basically made a lot of noise and missed badly. This decision was a farging disgrace. The announcers can suck a fleshpop. I was hoping Hopkins would sucker punch that smug little prick Merchant.

I thought Hopkins should have won but his style finally caught up to him.  He basically just walked around the first 8 rounds.  That said when it mattered most he whooped Taylor pretty good.

THe thing with Hopkins is he has a style and does not go off course, he di not land enough counters early in the fight. Taylor was aggresive, but was not as dominant as Hopkins was inactive early. I thought Hopkins did enough late to win the fight. I am upset now for the next 6 months we have to hear everyone question him. I am looking forward to the rematch, hopefully Hopkins relizes that a little more earlier action and he either Ko's or wins easy. Merchant can kiss it, he is a scumbag imo, he always looks to get a fighter pissed off. Enjoy Hopkins titles while you have them Taylor, it is going to be short.

IBF Orders Peter-Klitschko Box-off
Gotzev Declares “Moment of Truth” for Top Heavyweights.
Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter’s manager, Ivalyo Gotzev, is declaring that the “moment of truth has arrived,” for a top contender to step up and face his man, now that the IBF has ordered a box-off between Peter, 24-0 (21), and Wladimir Klitschko, 44-3 (40), to determine its new number-one contender (on the heels of last week’s announcement that the WBC has also ordered a box-off between Peter and its top contender Sinan Samil Sam). “We want to thank both organizations for recognizing Samuel Peter and giving him the opportunity to become their top contender. We’re looking at all options to see who will step up to the plate first. Samuel is ready to fight either guy, so it’s time to put up or shut up.” Gotzev says that Team Peter is overjoyed with the developments of the past couple weeks. “This is a great moment in Samuel’s career and the outcome of this is going to determine the future of the heavyweight division. All the hard work is finally paying off. He’s ready for anybody. Now is the moment of truth.”

Tarver / Jones again, They should really bring in Chris Tucker this time so he can stand over Jones and yell " You got knocked the farg out Mannnnnnnn"

From Fightnews.com:

Quote
Tarver-Jones III on Oct 1st!
By Flattop
“It’s done,” announced promoter Joe DeGuardia of Star Boxing to FightNews. “I am pleased to say that all parties have signed off and Antonio Tarver will meet Roy Jones Jr. on October 1st.” DeGuardia, the promoter of Tarver, received the signed contracts from Jones on Wednesday morning. “It is going to be parity, fifty-fifty. Tarver certainly feels he should get more, but this fight goes beyond money. Both Tarver and Jones are true warriors and they want to see who is the best. This fight will happen because both fighters have an overwhelmingly desire to fight each again, to settle it in the ring once-and-for-all!”


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DeGuardia pointed out: “Their rivalry has existed since they were kids. Tarver chased Jones for years to get his chance. Nobody can light a fire under Tarver the way Roy does. You saw the fire in Tarver in the first and second fight and you will see it again on October 1st. But now Roy has that same fire. You can say what you want to about who won the first fight, but Tarver knew he won that fight and it only made the fire bigger. He was still on fire after he knocked out Roy in the second fight and that was why he fought (Glen) Johnson with same fire. Now Tarver has lit a fire underneath Jones. Roy never had a fighter talk to him like Tarver. Roy will never forget when Tarver asked him, ‘Do you have any excuses tonight Roy?’ And Tarver will never forget all those years he begged Jones for an opportunity.”
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“This is truly a trilogy that will go down in history. Today’s generation will remember the Tarver vs. Jones trilogy in the same way that the previous generation looks at Ali vs. Frazier. You can talk about Gatti vs. Ward being a great trilogy, but Tarver vs. Jones is the two best light heavyweights in the world. That is why this fight is so compelling. It is a fight that the fans want to see and it’s a fight that the fighters want to fight. This is truly a fight for history.”
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The site hasn’t been determined but DeGuardia indicated that there is no shortage of venues seeking to land the highly anticipated rubber match between the current King of the Light Heavyweights and the living legend. DeGuardia indicated that the FedExForum in Memphis and Mandalay Bay in Vegas have expressed interest in hosting the fight. Both venues have a bittersweet history with the fighters. Tarver lost a narrow decision to Jones in November 2003 and he knocked Jones out in two rounds in May 2004 at the Mandalay Bay. Jones lost his comeback fight to Glen Johnson in September 2004 and Tarver won his rematch against Johnson in June 2005 at the FedExForum. Tarver vs. Jones III will be promoted by Star Boxing in association with Square Ring.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Of course, the name of Glen Johnson figures prominently when you talk about future fights for Tarver or Johnson but DeGuardia did not want to look ahead when asked about a rubber match with Johnson. “Right now Tarver has to take this one. There are big fights out there for Tarver, such as (Bernard) Hopkins, (Joe) Calzghe or a third fight with Johnson, but right now Jones is our only focus.” DeGuardia summarized the intensity of Tarver-Jones III with this observation: “Tarver has a score to settle and he will not be happy until he knocks Roy out again!”

The greatest heavy weight fight I've ever seen. I knew the outcome, I had heard every detail of it before I watched it, and still, when I saw it replayed, was completely amazed. We don't have fights like that anymore.

And frankly we don't have fighters like that anymore. Boxing has become boring. Which sucks.

Agreed, but heavyweight bouts are what put the sport on the map. They're still the biggest draws and the biggest money-makers and we haven't seen a decent title bout in years.

What? the John Ruiz / Andrew Golota fight was everything a fan could want  :puke On a good note though, Brewster beat Luan last night via a 9th round TKO, that was a very good test for Brewster. Wlad got by the Nigerian Nightmare by holding like a dance partner. So that lines up a rematch with Brewster for the younger Klit bro. Larry "the legend" :-D Donald fights Nicoli Valeuv (sp ???) the "beast from the east" 7 ft 1 inch 320 pounds undefeated (protected fighter) prospect this weekend in an eliminator bout to face John Suckuiz for his belt. Big Bro klit is fighting I think in November against Rahman. James Toney fights an interesting fight against the "southern Disaster" Dominick Guinn, and on that undercard the last and sometimes forgotten chump, I mean champ Chris Byrd fights Darvyll Williams, if both Byrd and Toney win, look for that fight to come off in the new year. So exciting ehhh maybe not, but at least there is some fights going off in the near future in the Heavy's.

Tarver beats Jones on a unanimous decision. Fight in a nutshell: Tarver swings, Jones dances and shakes his head - doesn't throw a punch. Jones throws a couple of combos looks decent. Dances, shakes his head. (Rinse, repeat) Maybe the worst fight ever fought with the exception of the 11th when Tarver landed a solid right followed by an uppercut that had Jones looking like he was going down (still can't believe he didn't fall) Tarver was clearly winded and couldn't follow up. Jones needs to hang em up.

On the other netwrok, showtime, the undercard Williamson / Byrd  :puke Horrible, the crowd booed after every round, I fell asleep from rounds 4-5, and that never happens. THe crowd booed the decision, and Byrd later when shown on the big screen during the Toney fight. Byrd got the W, but oh brother did he look horrible. THe Toney Guinn fight was excellent. Toney at 235 (heaviest he's been) looked sharp and never winded. Guin tried to lean on him against the ropes and Toney took him to school, just picked him apart. Guinn landed big shots here and there and was active the whole fight, but toney just dismantled and picked him apart.

Also Larry the Legend lost to Valveu over seas to set up a Ruiz / Valveu title fight.

Vitali Klitschko retires!
By Enrico "Erik" Crociati
All of the rumors and expectations regarding the future of WBC heavyweight champ Vitali Klitschko took a sudden turnaround today, when Vitali officially announced his retirement from boxing. After undergoing knee surgery in Inglewood, California, from Dr. Neal Elattrache, Klitschko stated to a German wire agency that he was done with pro boxing. The surgical procedure was successful but Klitschko would need a six-month rest without training before considering an eventual return, thus forcing the decision to call it a career. Klitschko said he prefers to leave at his peak and let his successors challenge for his crown. Dr. Vitali Klitschko, who earned a Ph.D. from Kiev University, hinted at the possibility to start a political career now. His boxing career ends with a pro record of 35 wins and 2 losses over an eight-year span, where he won the European, WBO and WBC titles. (special thanks to Alessandro Ferrarini for the info)

My feeling is that Rahman called him up and said, "you know who I am? I'm Rick James Beotch".

Toney-Calloway off!
By Aaron B. Dye
Heavyweight contender James Toney, 69-4-2, 43 KOs, 1 NC, has scrapped his upcoming bout with Rob Calloway, which was set to air live on The Best Damn Sports Show Period on December 15. According to his promoter Dan Goosen, the fight was canceled in favor of the prospect of facing newly crowned WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman, 41-5-1, 33 KOs, sometime in early 2006. Rahman's future will be decided by the WBC as they decide who he shall face next. Oleg Maskaev, who recently won the number one position in the WBC, Toney, and Wladimir Klitschko are candidates for Rahman's first defense. The BDSSP telecast will now feature the rematch between WBA lightweight champ Juan Diaz and former champ Lavka Sim, and possibly Olympic Gold Medalist Andre Ward

Anyone else watching this? To quote Kellerman: "Duane Ford said from his angle Taylor was winning in the 12th round, but after he rewatched the tape is was obvious that Hopkins had won". Great, his farg up cost a 10 year champion his gold. I also find it comical that Kellerman would call him an 'honest' judge. A blind man could of seen that Taylor was absolutely destroyed in the 12th round.  :boom

Valuev dethrones Ruiz!
By Uwe Betker at ringside
Nicolay Valuev has became the tallest and heaviest world champion in boxing history by winning the WBA heavyweight title by majority decision over John Ruiz before 10,000+ at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany on Saturday. The seven-foot tall, 324.1 lb. Valuev (44-0, 31 KOs) was able to negate Ruiz' punch and grab tactics by using his huge reach advantage to keep "The Quietman" at bay. Ruiz (41-6, 28 KOs) picked up the pace and tried to go for the knockout over the last two rounds, but it was too little, too late. Scores were 116-113, 116-114 for Valuev and 114-114. After the bout, Valuev was holding up the belt and Ruiz' trainer/manager Norman "Stoney" Stone grabbed it out of his hands, sparking a fistfight between Stone and one Valuev's cornermen. Nobody was hurt in the scuffle, but blood was noticable on both afterward.

Stone is a complete ASS!! Ruiz will probably retire again, fargin baby :-D

Two good fights last weekend, first Oneil Bell KO'd the frenchman. The fight was a mix of stick and move by Bell, throw in some great power exchanges, and a good inside attack by Mormeck. Mormeck seemed to be punding away whenever the two were in close, but Bell never stopped his pressure, and then just tagged Mormeck whenever he went to the outside. Bell hurt Mormeck in the 8th, and then just pounded him in the 10th till mormeck was laid out.

And then there was Zab Judah, who had a signed contract to fight with Floyd, all he had to do was to beat Baldomir the big big underdog. Oops!!! Baldomir was getting hit by Judah at will early on, I thought the fight was an easy victory, but Baldimor never stopped his stalking of Judah and it started paying off, He hurt Judah at the end of the 7th (if i remember correctly) and just pressed the fight the entire second half. Way to go Judah, another letdown for your fans! (I am not one, just enjoy seeing his smack talk bite him in the a$$).

Briggs vs. Tua: April 1
Comebacking former linear heavyweight champion Shannon "Brooklyn" Briggs, 45-4-1 (39 KOs), was asking for it for a long time…and now he’s got it: a nationally televised fight with a big-name contender. On Saturday, April 1, at the Mohegan Sun Hotel Casino in Uncasville, CT, CKrush Entertainment and Cedric Kushner will present Briggs squaring off with anvil-fisted former world title challenger David “Tuaman” Tua, 44-3-1 (38 KOs) as part of a free preview weekend on the SHOWTIME network. “I'm so hungry for a big fight; I've never wanted it as bad as I do now. I know Tua is tough, but I'm looking for a tough fight. Tua comes straight at you and that's what I like. I'm ready to go to war,” said a happy Briggs. “I'm the most exciting and active heavyweight in the sport today and on April 1; I'll prove I'm the best. Tua is going down!” Currently rated WBC #8, WBO #10 and IBF #13, Briggs is riding the momentum of a nine-fight knockout streak. Tua has been on the comeback trail as well, this fight will be just his third in almost three years. Briggs’ postponed and rescheduled fight against Chris “Special K” Koval for the NABA and USBA Heavyweight Championships is now postponed again. “Koval isn't off the hook, he's just getting a stay of execution. I want to go back and knock him out after I knock out Tua. I'm thankful to Showtime for this opportunity. I'm going to put on a great show and give the fans a fight worth watching.”

OT:
I'm late in writing to Joneszilla.  Today is a rainy day, perfect for writing a letter.  Last I heard, things weren't looking good on the appeal.  He got pretty serious time, so if the appeals process fails, he won't be out for several years (pending good behaviour, etc.)

Well Klitschko busted Byrd up good.  8th round TKO.  American boxers pretty much suck right now. 

7th round.  ;) 

You're right though... Klitschko beat the shtein out of Byrd.  If the ref hadn't stopped it at that point, it would've only gotten worse once all that blood had gotten into his eyes.



OT:
I'm late in writing to Joneszilla. Today is a rainy day, perfect for writing a letter. Last I heard, things weren't looking good on the appeal. He got pretty serious time, so if the appeals process fails, he won't be out for several years (pending good behaviour, etc.)

Dio...

I tailgated with him in Atlanta in 2003, but I wasn't posting here regularly when he ended up going to jail.  What'd he get convicted of?  To have been hit with "pretty serious time", it had to be more than snatching a purse.

Yep Byrd tried to go toe to toe after the first round. He was moving and easily hitting Klitschko's body, but for some reason he stood there and tried to bang. I'd like to see Rahman (show up as he did against Toney) fight Klitschko, or in fact Toney fight him.

If he fought the way he did against Mayorga tonight the potential fight between him and Mayweather Jr. would be spectacular.  That was the best DLH has looked in years.  He straight up dominated that fight.

Yeah, I am not a DLH fan but I was rooting for him lastnight Mayorga is an A-hole.  He was talking so much crap before the fight that he didn't back up.  He motivated DLH to give him an ass beating.

I saw a good fight lastnight on ESPN2 Wed. Night Fights, Jesse Brinkley (Contender) vs. Joey Spina.  Spina knocked him out in the 10th round.  Brinkley moved up in weight (middleweight) and really looked good for most of the fight.  In the end the bigger and better fighter won. 

Spina was considered for the Contender last year but he didn't get on.  I think he was probably too good, I have seen him fight before and he is an up and comer; he is from the Providence, RI area.  I think he would have won had he gotten on the show rather easily.

Castillo fails to make weight; The fight is off!
By Mike Sloan at the scales
5:25PM: Corrales promoter Gary Shaw announces that the fight is off. "He (Diego Corrales) is not going to put his life at risk," said Shaw. "You saw what happened last time. We are not money hungry!" Castillo's promoter Bob Arum says he is "mortified and completely embarrassed." The SHOWTIME telecast will go on with IBF flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan vs Luis Maldonado as the main event.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5:00PM: Jose Luis Castillo has failed to make weight again. For the second time today, Castillo weighed in at 140, then 139.5 after trying to sweat off the pounds for two hours. The ball is now in Diego Corrales' court whether he wants to fight or not. The bout would be a non-title affair like their second fight, in which Castillo also failed to make weight.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3:15PM: Castillo has two hours to lose two pounds. Period. The Nevada commission will not allow him to lose more, saying it is medically unsafe. If he can't lose two pounds, apparently there is no fight.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Promoter Bob Arum is furious at Castillo. "This is a complete disgrace," said Arum. "As far as I'm concerned, I do not represent him. If I was Corrales, I wouldn't fight him. This is a disgrace to the sport of boxing."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After weighing in, Castillo stood briefly on the stage looking disgusted, before storming away to try to lose the weight. Corrales said he'll wait to see what happens before deciding whether to fight or not.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3:00PM: Jose Luis Castillo has just weighed in at 140 or FIVE POUNDS above the lightweight limit. Corrales weighed in right at the 135 limit. After Corrales made weight, Castillo got on the scale again and weighed 139.5. Castillo now has two hours to lose two pounds. Promoter Bob Arum has stated previously that Castillo was facing big penalties if he could not make weight. He could forfeit up to 25% of his $900,000 purse to Corrales, who is slated to make $1.2 million.

Hopkins vs. Tarver this saturday.I have follwed Hopkins forever and I did not want to see him move up in weight. I think it is a gutsy move on hopkins part to go right after the big dog on the block in the light heavy's. He has got to go to the body early and often against Tarver, that is the one area you can hurt Tarver. And he cannot give away the early rounds like he did against Taylor.

i dont like the fact he lost a couple, but Im predicting a win here on his last fight--everything on the line. Hopkins has the experience of winning/knocking out some great fighters--particularly Oscar 2 years ago and Trinidad, and I think that will be the difference here against Tarver--even though he did beat Roy Jones.

Evenly matched IMO--but Bernard takes it

Hey Tarver is no young gun either, he is 37, beat up an over the hill RJJ and lost (IMO) the last time he fought Johnson. My biggest concern with Hopkins is the jump in weight and fighting Tarver in that first fight. Remeber how slow and plodding Oscar looked against sturm (sp?) before he fought Hopkins.

Notebook: Charitable stakes raised for Tarver-Hopkins
Rafael
By Dan Rafael
ESPN.com

AROUND THE RING
$250,000 on the line
Antonio Tarver
Tarver put up $250,000 that he'll stop Bernard Hopkins within six rounds. (AP/Mary Godleski)

Besides the desire to retain the light heavyweight title, Antonio Tarver has another incentive to win, and to win quickly.

The contract for the fight between Tarver and Bernard Hopkins contains a clause saying that if Tarver does not stop Hopkins before the sixth round, he must give Hopkins $250,000, which is to go to his charitable Make a Way Foundation.

Before the fight was made, Tarver promised he would stop Hopkins inside six rounds if they fought. When they negotiated the contract, Hopkins insisted that he keep his word and that it go in the deal.

"Tarver is so confident that he's going to win this fight that part of the deal put together for this fight is that he put up $250,000 in the contract that I won't get past five rounds," said Hopkins, who has never been stopped in an 18-year career. Hopkins has never even been cut and only been knocked down twice, during his first fight with Segundo Mercado.

"So that means that Tarver, who's not known to knock anybody about but Roy Jones, put up a quarter million dollars. A guy that's come out of bankruptcy a year-and-a-half ago puts up a quarter million dollars? You've got to take him seriously, or he's maybe a fool. But I'll take it and I will use it well. There's a lot of kids in my Make a Way Foundation in Philadelphia that can use that money, and I will thank him after the press conference for that money and I will go about my business."

Tarver said he didn't remember making the remarks about stopping Hopkins in the first half of the fight, but so is confident that he will win that he allowed the clause to be put in the contract.

"I'm a man of my word," Tarver said. "If he sees the sixth round, he gets a check. It goes to charity and I will present it to him. I can use the tax break."

Hopkins said the bet shows just how serious the fight is.

"When a man puts up that kind of money, believe me, he's serious," Hopkins said. "He's not only going to lose, he's going to lose $250,000 and get his ass kicked. That's a hell of a way to lose -- short a quarter of a million dollars and with a lot of lumps."

Gotta love that.   :-D

I went to the fight last night and let me tell you the AC Convention Center is a dump. I felt like I was at an amateur Pro Wrestling event waiting for Steve Lombardi-The Brooklyn Brawler to come out

I dont know how it looked on TV, but the fight in general was very boring. Tarver seriously looked like a lost puppy out there, clueless on how to counterpunch and land anything significant. Hopkins stayed aggressive the whole fight throwing, ducking and dodging. One good punch by B-Hop the whole fight and there you have it. Clear cut decision--made some money on a 3-1 underdog.

Winky pussed out the last 2 rounds-Talyor didnt come aggressive enough to take it. way too close to give it to anyone based on the shots that landed from both corners.

Fight was boring man.  Taylor's a total headhunter with bad form.  Wright was a better technician, but had a huge reach disadvantage.  When he did get inside, drive him to a corner, he really wasn't able to capitalize.  Draws are weak, but so was the fight.

Gatti / Baldomir should be another exciting fight, face any fight except the mayweather fight with Gatti is exciting.

Shelly Finkel was interviewed on Fightnews.com and had some interesting things to

say:http://www.fightnews.com/scott212.htm


Quote
Is the fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Shannon Briggs official?
No. But it will be. We're working on it, but it's not done yet... so I can't comment any further. Right now, it's a work in process and there are no stumbling blocks. So we'll probably know in the next two weeks if it's a definite.

Briggs is ranked #7 by the IBF. What were the determining factors in choosing him to fight for Wlad's IBF title?
One - Briggs is a very tough opponent. He's on an eleven fight winning streak, all by knockout. Two - It being at Madison Square Garden is a perfect venue for it. Three - We couldn't wait til after August to see that no one got injured in the Oleg Maskaev/Hasim Rahman fight. And four - We tried James Toney first, be he decided to fight Samuel Peter instead.

Briggs is a nasty fighter, not great butthe guy is big and nasty, if he isn't too slow against Wlad he could knock him out. I cannot believe that Toney turned down a fight with Wlad, unless they offered him a insane low number.

Quote
Jeff Lacy. What's going on with him?
Jeff will be fighting in October on a double header, with Diego Corrales in the main event (opponent to be named). We were trying to make a fight with Tarver, but obviously that didn't happen. So as of right now, we don't have any names yet.

hopefully Lacy can get it together and come back strong. He got abused in his last fight against Calzageeeeeeee f'n bastige.

Gatti got smoked by Baldomir, tko in the 9th. It was strange to see Gatti just unload on someone and see them smile and walk through it. Baldomir is said to walk around at 185 - 190lbs. until 12 weeks before camp, then drop to his fight weight of 147 :o He was clearly the "bigger" guy in the ring. Gatti needs to hang'em up or drop back down to jr. welter. Congrats to Baldomir tough SOB

I would say yes, Gatti did not listen to McGirt the entire fight ??? I don't understand he was getting drilled by right hands at will by Baldomir, McGirt kept telling him to box and move to your right, but Gatti kept circling left right into Baldomir's right hand, it reminded me of Moorer and Foreman ;D Gatti as usual shows a lot of heart, but in this fight he did not show any "boxing" brains always wanting to brawl. When he did start to (and I mean it was very inconsistant) stick and move between rounds 6 and 9 he was fairly effective. I think if he would of kept that distance and not got into it all the time with Baldomir, hey who knows he might of out pointed him. The bottom line is Larry Merchant is an idiot, I hate him as an announcer, oh wait sorry that really has nothing to do with this fight ;)

Morrison calls out Tyson!
By David Finger
Former heavyweight contender Tommy "The Duke" Morrison, fresh off his announced comeback, has already made it clear which fighter he wants to step into the ring with, calling out former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Although Morrison has yet be licensed in any state, and Tyson has announced his retirement, Morrison feels confident that the fight could take place. "I called Mike Tyson and spoken to him on several occasions," commented Morrison through his executive personal assistant, Susan Schaffer Martin. However, Martin did confirm that "they have yet to sit down and discuss a fight." Morrison added that he was "afraid that Mike has gotten too slow and lazy in his retirement playing with his pigeons. After all a retired boxer has to have a hobby, pigeons give un-conditional love." Morrison also added fuel to the fire by claiming that he was thinking of buying "a homing pigeon and sending over a message that we are serving squab for dinner." Morrison appeared close to a fight against Tyson in the late 1990s, shortly after signing a three fight deal with Don King. However his career was derailed by a failed HIV test, a test team Morrison now claims was erroneous.

Jones dominates Ajamu!
By Rick Scharmberg at ringside
Roy Jones Jr found the perfect opponent to end his three fight losing streak. Jones (50-4, 38 KOs) easily broke down Prince Badi Ajamu (25-3-1, 14 KOs) over twelve rounds at the Qwest Arena on Boise, Idaho. The 37-year-old Jones survived an early bum's rush from Ajamu and then had it go all his way from that point on. Ajamu tried to be aggressive, but Jones was too quick and too slick winning each round easily. Ajamu was deducted three points from low blows and was totally dominated by Jones, who pot-shotted him at will. Scores were 119-106 on all cards. Afterward Jones said he gave his performance "a C" proclaiming "the champ is back!"

Oh please please please call out Hopkins, I know his punk A$$ won't but I wish he would.

Jones: I can still do it!
By Rick Scharmberg
"I wanted to see if my reflexes were still there," said Roy Jones Jr. at last night's post-fight press conference. "I wanted to see if I could do the things I used to do like catch him off balance. After tonight, I realized that I can still do the things that I'm not supposed to be able to do any more!" So what's next? Bernard Hopkins? "He said he didn't want to fight me. [He] said I was too fast!" Jones said he plans to stay at light heavyweight, stating "No way will I fight Virgil Hill again. Look how big Virgil Hill is!" Roy did not rule out a return to heavyweight, however. "I see something in Rahman. If he wins [against Oleg Maskaev] I might want Rahman – only Rahman....If something crazy comes up, I may try [Nikolai Valuev]. If it's a good opportunity, why not?"

Saturday night in Boise Idaho, Roy Jones Jr returns to take on Prince Badi Ajamu in a light heavyweight championship fight at the Qwest Arena. A recent article by the Idahostatesmen quotes Roy Jones Jr on what Roy considers his mistake in the past and why he is not to blame for slow ticket sales for this weekend's bout.

On what mistake Jones Jr did in the past that lead him to defeats, Jones is quoted by the Idaho Statesmen saying: "The mistake I made in the past was I stopped worrying about me and started worrying about everyone else."

Speaking in third person, Jones Jr. tells why he is not to blame for the promotion of the fight. Jones Jr said: "Roy's got to 
do what Roy's got to do to win the fight. Roy's got to get back on track. Roy can't go out there and spend all this time promoting the fight and then not win the fight. Roy's got to win the fight and then he'll promote later."[/

I really hate this guy, your back Roy?

Why don't you drop oh lets say about seven pounds and fight Calzage, or left hook Lacy? I'll answer it for you, cause your a BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEatch thats why.  :boom I really hate this guy.

More Toney/Peter Fireworks!
August 24, 2006

By Andre Courtemanche

 

The following is an excerpt from the predictably volatile press conference, held today, between heavyweight contender Samuel Peter and his next opponent, former world champion James Toney to hype their September 2 showdown at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and televised live on Showtime Championship Boxing. Also present were Peter’s vocal manger Ivaylo Gotzev, and his promoter, Dino Duva, as well as Toney’s promoter, Dan Goossen.

 

Today is also James Toney’s 38th birthday.

 

Peter: Happy Birthday to James Toney. I’m ready to go September 2. I’m telling the media we’re ready to do what it takes to win.

 

Gotzev: Happy Birthday to James Toney. James, don’t worry about it. Someone’s going to jump out of your birthday cake and knock you out.

 

Toney: F*** you very much Bitch. You telephone tough, bitch.

 

Duva: I was going to say happy birthday to James, but now I have two other words for him.

 

Toney: Nobody ever put me down and you aint gonna do it because you’re a f***ing amateur. Everybody is talking. His promoter is talking; his manager is talking. You gonna see me this week, I aint no fake motherf***er. I will take your ass out.

 

Duva: Dan, will you translate that?

 

Gotzev: It’s all talk from this guy.

 

Toney: You’re a scared flag, bitch. I’ll come to your house, you immigrant motherf***er.

 

Peter: Nobody hears what he says because it’s like he’s got water in his mouth.

THis weekend is a good heavyweight fight, Peter/Toney that will be a very good legit fight. Valuev/Barrett should be interesting as Valuev is stepping up his competition and coming to the US, Klit is a joke, I can't believe he backed out of the Briggs fight, he is the weakest of the four. Liakhovich/Briggs ehhh whatever, I actually like Liakhovich, he is quick and can take a punch. All in all in a couple of years if Peter can put together some skills with his power he will be the top dog of all the guys out there. I kinda hope Toney pulls out a tough win, I would like to see him against the champs right now.

Hopkins to take on Wright at catchweight?

By Staff Writer

According to the St.Petersburg Times, light-heavyweight champion, Bernard Hopkins is set to to take on Winky Wright on July 21st.

Wright's adviser and attorney, Jim Wilkes, said the St. Petersburg boxer and Hopkins, have agreed to meet at 170 pounds.

Although an official announcement has not been scheduled, Wilkes said the deal was completed, for the most part, Thursday. Contracts haven't been signed, and the site - most likely Madison Square Garden New York or Las Vegas - hasn't been chosen, but Wilkes said those are formalities.



Also RJJ is talking rematch with Hopkins :drool

Floyd-Oscar: 2.15 million buys!
PPV telecast sets all time record

HBO Sports reported today that 2.15 million pay-per-view buys and $120 million in pay-per-view revenue was generated from last Saturday’s mega fight showdown featuring Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The fight was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. In a fight that set the all-time pay-per-view record by eclipsing the previous mark by a sizable margin of 160,000 buys as well as establishing a new mark for revenue from a pay-per-view telecast, Mayweather scored a split decision victory and captured De La Hoya’s junior middleweight title.

The showdown produced 1,225,000 buys from cable systems and 925,000 buys from satellite homes throughout the 50 states.

Tarver claims he was drugged but can't prove it
Rafael

By Dan Rafael
ESPN.com
(Archive)

Updated: June 1, 2007, 1:05 PM ET


When Antonio Tarver faced Bernard Hopkins last June, it was obvious from the outset that it wouldn't be his night. Hopkins bullied a lethargic Tarver all over the ring, knocked him down in the fifth round and took the light heavyweight championship on a virtual shutout decision.

Now, as Tarver (24-4, 18 KOs) prepares for his return to the ring a year later to face Elvir Muriqi (34-3, 21 KOs) on June 9 in Hartford, Conn., he says he believes he was drugged before the fight with Hopkins.

Although Tarver didn't accuse anyone specifically of drugging him, he made the accusation Thursday during a teleconference with reporters to discuss his fight with Muriqi (Showtime, 10 p.m. ET/PT).

"It is a great possibility. The stakes were high," Tarver said, when asked about the likelihood of being drugged before the fight in Atlantic City, N.J. "When you look at that fight ... I have not seen the fight in its entirety ... everybody that knows me knew that something was terribly wrong from when I walked from the dressing room to the ring. Something was wrong all day. It is a possibility, but I cannot say that my preparation was any different than it has been.

"I have always been committed, dedicated and a hard worker. So when you look at those assets, then you have to say something else happened for me to fight so flat, so lifeless, so emotionless, so unspirited in one of the biggest fights of my career. Something definitely happened and something was terribly wrong."

Tarver said he has no proof that he was drugged, nor did anything out of the ordinary come from his post-fight urinalysis.

"I wish I would have had a blood test right after the fight," Tarver said. "Normally, they do drug-test you after the fight. I do not know if there is any possibility of going back and getting that urinalysis and examining it to see what happened. Mentally, I was beat out of the game -- could not get focused, could not get up for the fight -- and that is just not like me."

Tarver said he felt fine at the press conference the week of the bout and also at the weigh-in. The night of the fight, however, he said he didn't feel like himself.

"Fortunately, I did not receive any serious injuries that night, but I was a dead man walking," he said. "I do not know what happened and there are a lot of things that have come up lately that I am questioning. I just know at the press conference, the electricity was there. At the weigh-in, the electricity was there. The night of the fight, I was a dead man walking, just a shell of myself. I do not know what happened before the fight.

"Something happened. I do not want to point the finger. I believe that there was a possibility that they got to me, or someone got to me with ordering room service, a drink of water or whatever. But I was not myself. As big as that fight was, I could not get into it mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or nothing. I was zapped for whatever reason. I cannot blame it on my trainer because we trained properly. We were ready. But when I went to bed and woke up that day, I was a zombie and I do not know what happened. My sister thought that maybe I could have been poisoned. Maybe somebody tampered with some food. My reflexes were not there, my counter punching ability was not there. Something went terribly wrong."

Tarver, who months before the fight weighed in the neighborhood of 220 pounds as he bulked up for his role as the heavyweight champion opposite Sylvester Stallone in the film "Rocky Balboa," had to get down to 175 to fight Hopkins.

That substantial weight loss is what many have attributed to Tarver's poor performance.

Tarver is not the first fighter to allege that he was drugged or poisoned before a fight. After Lamon Brewster knocked out Wladimir Klitschko in the fifth round of a 2004 heavyweight title bout in Las Vegas, a big upset in which Klitschko faded badly after a big start, Klitschko's team made accusations that he had been poisoned.

The allegation was never proven.

RESULT
Hopkins outpoints Wright!
Katsidis, Linares win world title clashes
By Albert Jimenez Howell and Matt Richardson at ringside
In a battle of former world champions, Bernard Hopkins (48-4-1, 32 KOs) won a unanimous decision over Winky Wright (51-4-1, 25 KOs) in a light heavyweight clash on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Wright was cut over the left eye in round two by an unintentional headbutt. Wright was the aggressor with Hopkins trying to give angles. There was lots of holding and wrestling at close quarters. Hopkins' best weapon was a short right hand. Wright was busier, but rounds were close and tedious. Hopkins seemed stronger at the end to pull away. Scores were 116-112, 117-111, 117-111.

Quote
Mayweather-Hatton is ON!

By Marc Abrams

There is an old adage that when "if you ask, you shall receive." and according to espn.com, Ricky Hatton's wish is Floyd Mayweather's command as the two stars have agreed to meet in what will amount to a big fight in December 8th in Las Vegas.

The bout will be for Mayweather's WBC Welterweight title which he chose to keep following his win over Oscar De La Hoya for the WBC Super Welterweight crown this past May 5th.

Hatton, 43-0 with 31 knockouts and Mayweather, 38-0 with 24 knockouts each are the recognized champions in their weight divisions. Hatton briefly was the WBA Welterweight champion after beating Luis Collazo in 2006 only to move back down to Jr. Welterweight where he scored wins over Juan Urango and an impressive stoppage over Jose Luis Castillo this past June 23rd.

The bout seemed to pick up steam after Hatton made disparaging remarks about Mayweather following the Castillo bout.

The bout will be televised on HBO Pay-Per-View and promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, who according to the same espn.com report could be on the verge of signing Hatton to a promotional contract.

More on Mayweather-Hatton!
The card will be billed as "Undefeated" and is definitely on December 8. The event will be promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and Mayweather Promotions televised on HBO Pay-Per-View. Several sites are interested in hosting the event and a location will be announced shortly. A global press tour is being planned to promote this event and ticket information will be announced in the near future.
Quotes:
Floyd Mayweather (38-0, 24 KOs) : I am the best fighter in boxing today and I’m prepared for any challenge my team puts in front of me. And with Ricky Hatton it’s already personal. He has talked and disrespected me so much in the past months that I can’t wait to get him in the ring and show him he is not even on my level. He’s definitely getting knocked out.”
Ricky Hatton (43-0, 31 KOs): I respect Floyd Mayweather immensely for his boxing ability and it will be an honor to share the same ring with him. He is rightly regarded as the best pound for pound boxer in the world. However, I am confident and determined that I will be the first boxer to beat him in the ring and I am looking forward to this fight.

Taylor ended up in the hospital for a month afterwards, and from what they said it ended his career.

OK a couple of things:

#1 How in the hell was Pavlik down by 3 rounds on one and 4 rounds on two other judges cards? both Pavlik and JT seemed stunned when they were told the scores at the time of k.o. by Larry.

#2 Usually can't stand Larry, but he actually asked a question, and then let both Pavlik and JT answer the question.

#3 Lennox Lewis had some really good insight on surving a beating like Pavlik did in the Second and about how a bloody nose effects your breathing and rythm.

#4 JT punked out by running out of the ring.

#5 JT looked shocked in the post fight interview, good God the size of the lump on his right cheek :o

#6 Maybe Emanuel shouldn't of hyped up JT by over and over saying Pavlik was an easy fight, made for JT.

#7 Congrats to Pavlik and New Middleweight Champ of the world.

i thought the same thing when Lampley gave the scores...the only thing i could come up with is that all the rounds were close and judges were of the mindset that Pavlik had to really win the rounds for them to give him the belt by decision.  i don't agree with that, but they could've been thinking that.  also, JT was landing a high percentage of power punches and jabs, so they could've been giving him the advantage over Pavlik because it took him less punches to land the same amount that Pavlik landed.

You nailed it Sun. I hate the scorecards and wish they had a better system of scoring fights. As far as the judges go one judge was from Italy and his name was Guido and another was a dumb blonde chick so I wasn't expecting much accuracy.


#2 Usually can't stand Larry, but he actually asked a question, and then let both Pavlik and JT answer the question.

I hear you Sun, but Pavlik was the hunter all night, he pursued JT the whole fight, constantly working him into the corner, never stopped coming on even after he got himself rocked in the second. I hope there is a rematch, I think Pavlik woill have an easier time the next go around. I want him to fight the winner of Kessler / Calzqaghe, maybe he will have the balls to fight them unlike JT.

I hope there is a rematch, I think Pavlik woill have an easier time the next go around. I want him to fight the winner of Kessler / Calzqaghe, maybe he will have the balls to fight them unlike JT.

i totally agree, but what i said earlier was the only rationale explanation to why JT was so far ahead...other than the fix being in, which was possible

I hear ya, I just was stunned to see that.

The Phillies won the division.  The Eagles are playing in prime time tonight.


LET'S TALK BOXING!

Hey what a great example, JT (the mets) knocked Pavlik down early in the fight. Pavlik (the phils) kept figthin and knocked out JT late. How can you not see the comparison.

Hatton vs. Mayweather 1 day away :crazy :crazy

In other news Hopkins opens his mouth again. I have loved following his career, but If JoE said this about a "black boy" not being able to beat him Jesse and the Rev. AL would be all over it.

Quote
Hopkins-Calzaghe heats up!
B-Hop: I would never lose to a white person
Super Joe: He will lose to me
A fight nearly broke out between Bernard Hopkins and Joe Calzaghe today during their first face-to-face meeting at the MGM Grand Media Center in Las Vegas. "I would never let a white boy beat me," Hopkins told reporters. "You can print that. I would never lose to a white person."  :slyHopkins also dissed Calzaghe's win over Mikkel Kessler. "Kessler is not in my league, man. Who is Kessler? You think Kessler was a true warrior?" Calzaghe stated, "He ducked me four years ago. He thinks he's a legend but he lost to Jermain Taylor twice and, believe me, he will lose to me.....He'll get his arse kicked, full stop. He's all mouth. He doesn't fight, he holds." Both fighters said they would make their showdown happen in 2008, possibly at Yankee Stadium in New York City.

Well a couple of fights today:
The Russian Giant Valuev from what it sounds dismantled Liakhovich, to give him his rematch with champ and victor  Ruslan Chagaev

Kimbo Slice vs. Tank Abbott: Tank time seems like it's passed him by, and Kimbo is the Youtube guy who beat up slow offensive lineman and is finally stepping in the ring. I hope Tank kicks the crap out of him but whatever.


Talyor vs. Pavlick rematch of one of the best fights in a while Pavlick down early holds on to stop Taylor in the first fight. Pavlick has a  slight edge going into the 6th imo, the busier of the two.

Evander Holyfield has told the Guardian that a third fight with Mike Tyson is being considered. According to Holyfield, Tyson representative Jeff Fenech, called him to gauge his interest in a third fight. Evander said he would "catch a lot of flak" if he fought Tyson again, but "if the price is right," he would probably do it.
Thursday, February 28 2008

For the love of God this better not happen, then again, Tyson maybe the only one Holyfield could beat at this point.

He's pro-Philly no doubt. But his comments about McNabb made me sour on him. He sounded like a dumbass when he did it.

Anyways,

The fight was pretty good. Calzaghe won by split decision. I thought that Hopkins fought a fight that he's not used to. Or at least one that I haven't seen him fight. Usually its a slow paced fight where he doesn't really do much but dance and jab. He was really going after Calzaghe tonight. Fun to watch and I thought that it was scored right.

Was glad to see Calzhaghe, normally I wouldn't root against B-Hop, actually this is the only time.  I didn't like his little pre-fight rant.  There was no need for him to bring race into it.  Anyway it was a good fight, wouldn't mind seeing it happen again.

Post by: DH on April 20, 2008, 12:02:37 PM
I watched this morning after tivoing it last night. Originally, I was rooting for Hop because of the Philly connection, but then I realized why Im not too crazy about him - his fighting style is boring as hell. He holds waaay too much, and outside of the first round knockdown; which  IMO shocked Calzaghe more than it knocked him down, the fight was unquestionably all Calzaghe.

What the hell did that female judge see by giving Hop the decision? His ass shoulda retired after beating Winky last year..

Chris Byrd fought last friday night former two time heavyweight champ. He dropped from 217 to 175 to fight in light heavy for the first time in 15 yrs. He got his butt rocked by Shaun George, getting stopped in the 9th by a nasty combo.

Margarita/Cotto was one hell of a fight. I especially like how Cotto was showboating in the beginning of the fight but ended up bloody and beaten at the end.
Zudah/Clottey sucked, turned it off after the decision and didn't get the full explanation of why they stopped it. I'm guessing Zudah's eye was too farged up.

I dont  think Judah/Clottey sucked at all actually...only thing that sucked about it was the early stoppage. Zab showed a lot of fight against one of the better up and coming welterweights in the world...Of course though, because Zab is a bigger name than Clottey, hes probably gonna get Margarito next year..

Big surprise here ::)

Quote
Unbeaten light heavyweight star Joe Calzaghe (46-0, 32 KOs) dealt a twelve round beating to Roy Jones, Jr. (52-5, 38 KOs) on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Jones dropped Calzaghe in round one with a glancing right hand and landed some clean shots in the second. But Calzaghe began to outwork Jones in the third and showed disdain for Jones' power by keeping his hands down between quick flurries. Calzaghe continued to beat Jones to the punch and cut Roy over the left eye in round seven. Jones' corner was unable to stop the blood as Calzaghe continued to dominate until the final bell. Scores were 118-109 on all cards.

How anyone billed this as an even matchup is beyond me. I would love to see Joe fight Hop again, but that was his closest fight ever so nah it won't happen. Really the only ones left to fight at L. heavy would be Hop again, dawson (undefeated still) Glen Johnson, Tarver or woods. He could drop back to Super middle against, Froch, Bute, JT or Kessler again, or be really dramatic and jump to the heavy's and take abelt before he retires.

Hoipkins lost by split decision, Holt did everything right to win. Aggressive, up in Dhop's grill, never really let him get distance to get off. Also looked like Dhop was a little overwhelmed with his first title shot.

Also Vlad tapped  that ass against Rahman, damn his jab looks as sick, if not more then the old holmes intense!

Toney also went at it with Fres Oquendo, and won by split dec. Toney did not look his best, but his defense and slick movements are still fun to watch.

#10 knockout looks like he was fighting Sno nuff

#2 should be #1, Trevor Berbick bumblin and stumblin was one of the top knockouts in the history of boxing fargin classic.

 :( IMO Mike in his prime, would beat any Heavy in the history of the sport. Power speed and his movement were  :o

I have heard a lot of people say that about "Iron Mike", but to me much of his game was based on intimidation once he lost that he never beat anybody.  If you watch his early fights guys were terrified in the ring against him, do you think guys like Ali and Frazier would be scared of him? Personally I don't.  I am not saying he wasn't a great fighter, I just have my doubts as to how he would have stacked up against some of the all-time greats.

agree 100%

Tyson vs Ali is not even worth talking about because Ali's jab would of forced Tyson to forfeit by the 4th rd

Frazier or Foreman would of ate him up with their own crazy power shots

Tyson relied heavily on bobbing and weaving, side to side uppercuts with mean ass crosses from the inside

if Tyson is not close to an opponent forget about it..loss

Tyson went downhill after he came out of prison, IMO he never really wanted to fight after that, it was all for the cash at that point. Other then the Buster douglas fight, which he was robbed, Buster went down at the end of the 8th. and the ref blew the count.

Anyway, Tyson was deadly inside and moving against the jab, up until the buster fight he was never in trouble. Fraizer I don't think would be able to handle Tysons shots, Foreman took him out in two rounds and then in the rematch five rounds. Ali was able to handle Foreman's shots but George was much slower and winded easier then Tyson would. Ali would not have been able to handle Tysons quicker flurries, like he had trouble handling joe being closer to him. Foreman would get frustrated with Tyson's movement just like he did with Ali, and Tyson hits a hell of a lot harder then Ali ever did.

This is all my opinion so it means, well nothing, but its mine damnit

Tysons problems started after Cus D'Amato died and he started consorting with Don King. Cus, I believe, kept him locked in a cage between fights when he owned him.

one hugely important thing that Ali, Frazier and Foreman all had in spades that Tyson never had is heart

I don't think you can talk seriously about who would have won in a fantasy fight across eras, but I do think you can see that some fighters are Great while others are just the best of their otherwise unremarkable time.  I put Tyson squarely in the latter group. 
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: ice grillin you on January 26, 2009, 10:22:19 AM
^^^
thats basically it

tyson won on intimidation and once he got knocked out and not just knocked out but recall how pathetic he looked after that buster ko his whole steeze and aura just disintegrated before everyones eyes...and he didnt have the boxing skills and especially like dio said the heart to overcome people not being scared of him anymore...

he had a mans body and as long as that body could keep others scared of him he could be a bully but inside he was always an abandoned abused and scared little 8 year kid from brooklyn and it took one loss to expose that part of him to the world
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: Diomedes on January 26, 2009, 10:38:49 AM
So long as we're entertaining fantasy matchups vs. Tyson...this is the fighter I'd run him up against:

(http://www.ciode.ca/intervju/IN-GEORGE%20CHUVALO%20530.jpg)

Chuvalo had a whale's heart and could take a punch from anyone. 
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: phillymic2000 on January 26, 2009, 11:10:04 AM
Come on, George?  his two TKO losses were against Foreman and Frazier. His biggest win was probably against Quarry, which is who I would compare him with. He had a big heart and one of the best chins, but did not have the firepower/skill to beat a top contender or champ. It would be an interesting fight, but I don't think he would have the firepower to stop Mike.

I'm not saying anyone from the past couldn't beat tyson. I'm sayin Chuvalo is cheaper version of Jerry Quarry, and I think Quarry would not be able to handle a prime Tyson. And yes Buster "beat" Tyson in his prime, not his best fight but in his prime. And Technically Buster lost that fight, watch the 8th round knockdown and you will see the ref blew the count, and blah blah blah tyson lost and deserved too with his performance, but he Ko'd buster in the 8th and in my imaginary little world ;D

I still loved to watch Iron Mike's crazy ass fight people. It was sad towards the end when he was getting knocked around, but in his early days, intimidation being the factor or not, his fights were fn to watch.

I would love to see boxing make a comeback like it was in the old days. Nothing was better than a good heavyweight fight.

Former world champion Félix ‘Tito’ Trinidad and promoter Don King had a meeting in the Hotel Ritz Carlton of Isla Verde, Puerto Rico to try to set up a rematch between Trinidad and Bernard Hopkins. Trinidad, now 36, suffered his first defeat against Hopkins, now 44, in 2001. Sources assure that Don King and Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer are near an agreement for a fight in November. Trinidad needs to train for five or six months.

Have you followed his career, the dude has always talked like that, he gets hit less then the majority of fighters and the Ghost barely touched him. He is a old school defensive, crafty and some times dirty fighter. He gets in guys heads and owns them. Maybe you should send him a card and let him know how much you care. His mom wanted him to stop and thats worked well.

Boxing doesnt need him either...the torch has been passed to the next generation with Hatton, Pavlik, Manny, Arreola, etc. As much as I loved watching it, every time a guy like Hop beats a guy like Pavlik, boxing takes a step back. If the sport is gonna succeed long team, it needs to move on.

Im thinking Hatton might have a serious shot here in a decision.

The fact that Pac beat up on Oscar meant jack to me. Oscar coming down in weight was not smart at his age. He was slow and lazy defensively. The fight Hatton had with Mayweather is another one for me that cant be compared to this match-up. Floyd is just ridiculously accurate and his defensive style fargs everyones game up

Im not the biggest fan of Hatton for he gets too bull-headed at times, but hes a quick son of a bitch that has a similar fighting style to Pac. Pac has the edge with his quick hook and roll, but I still think it goes the distance here

ESPN had the best of Tyson on tonight after the Phils dispatched the Gags.

Beautiful shtein.

Hell, I was at half the fights in A.C. back in the day.  Dook was the most ferocious son of a bitch I've ever seen in the ring, bar none.  I was 50 feet away when he took the belt against Michael Spinks.  Absolutely terrorizing.

What a shame he became a joke afterwards.  Could have been the b.o.a.t.

Mike Tyson just got married for the third time and the name of his new bride, Lakiha Spicer, may sound familiar.

Spicer, 32, served six months last year in a federal penitentiary after being convicted of fraud and conspiracy over receiving $71,000 for a no-show teaching job from the Sister Clara Muhammad School (47th & Wyalusing). Spicer’s mother Faridah Ali served more than a year in prison for being one of two masterminds behind a scam that misdirected $274,000 in public funds from a program to educate adults in reading and math at the Islamic school in West Philly.

The former heavyweight boxing champ and Spicer have been dating on and off for years. Tyson's name was bandied about as a possible character witness for Spicer during a 2004 trial in which she was sentenced to house arrest and four years probation, but the legendary boxer, who can be seen in theaters now in "The Hangover," was not called to testify.

Tyson, 42, and Spicer wed Saturday in a private ceremony at the La Bella Wedding Chapel inside the Las Vegas Hilton.

A source close to the Spicer family says that Spicer and Tyson welcomed a baby around Christmas.

Tragically, Tyson's 4-year-old daughter Exodus, whom he had with former girlfriend Sol Xochitl died last month after she accidentally suffocated by getting her neck stuck in a cord from a piece of exercise equipment.

SAO PAULO -- Officials say former world boxing champion Arturo Gatti has been found dead in a hotel room in northeastern Brazil.

A spokeswoman for the public safety department of Pernambuco state says the body of the former junior welterweight champ was discovered on Saturday morning in the posh seaside resort of Porto de Galinhas, where he arrived on Friday with his wife and 1-year-old son.

The spokeswoman said it was unclear how the 37-year-old Canadian died.

"There were no bullet or stab wounds on his body, but police did find blood stains on the floor," she said, adding that his wife and son were unhurt.

The spokeswoman, who did not provide further details, declined to be identified because she was not authorized to comment on the case.

Gatti retired in 2007.

It doesn't delve into the fight on a round by round basis, but really looks at the two fighters and their families, and how their lives were completely destroyed. It was excellently done.

Paulie out boxed and frustrated the baby bull Diaz all fargin night. One judge called it 118-110. As much as his rant will probably hurt Paulie in future fights, it needed to be said.

That was the best shtein I ever heard a boxer say.  I am not a fan of his by any stretch of the imagination, but he should have won that fight.  If Diaz would have won by a small margin you could understand, but the closest score was 3 points. 

As far as Assault in the Ring if you haven't seen it check it out, unreal.   Its a little off topic but they have another documentary right now call "Breaking the Huddle" it is about desegregation of southern college football, also amazing.

We had our first "big" fight in Hawaii in over 25 years on Saturday night.  Brian Viloria vs. Jesus Iribe.  IBF Light Flyweight Championship.  Granted not the greatest card but only 3100 tickets distributed for an 8500 seat venue.  We used to always sell out the arena for fights when I was a kid.  Seemed like there was descent card every month. On the flip side as it is across the country, MMA consistently sells out.  My 87 year old father could fight my 2 year old nephew in an MAA event and it would sell out.

Floyd needs to face Pac Man, i know there is still a 6 to 10 lb. difference, but if Floyd is legit and shows up at the weigh in at a catch weight of around 142. it could be a hell of a fight. Pac is insane, and floyd showed his sugar ray robinson side with his defensive skills in this past fight.

In other fight news, Vitali is stepping up to fight an up and coming young heavy Chris Arreola (on HBO 9/26), this fight should be entertaining if Chris can get on the inside and bang. If Vitali can keep him outside and pick him apart it will be an easy night. BUT Arreola has shown he can bang, and the Klit bros. have shown weaker chins in their career. Arreola has been pounding his opponets lately with McCline going out in 4 rds last (Wlad ko'd him in 10 in 2002).

In the undercard Cedric Boswell (30-1) will face a unknown  6′7 Russian Alexander Ustinov (17-0), Boswell has been impressive against unknowns since his 10th rd. ko to McCline in 2003, with his biggest win  ::) being against Clif Couser. Anywho it should be a good night for some possible exciting ko's!

The heavyweight division is an absolute travesty.

it has been for quite a few years now.  i don't follow boxing as close as other sports, but i can't really think of the last time there's been a deep pool of heavyweights.  pre-douglas tyson is probably the last truly great heavyweight to step in the ring.  and even then, there wasn't really any serious competition for him.  most of the other heavyweights since then like lewis or holyfield have been pretty damn good fighters but none of them will go down as an all time great. 

the heavyweights had appeal because of their power and knockout ability.  but years and years of mostly mediocre heavyweight fights, especially title fights, has turned a lot of people away from it.  i'd much rather watch a middleweight-type fight between 2 guys who are not only quick, agile and technically sound fighters, but there are a few guys out there who will knock people the farg out. 

i could watch guys like pacquiao, mayweather, roy jones jr or a younger de la hoya all day long.

Klit vs. Arreola:

Klit, picked Chris apart all night. Chris kept the pressure on him all night. The ref was a bum, everytime Chris came in, Vitali grabbed and the ref couldn't get in there fast enough to break. What happened to, when one fighter is punching the ref gives him a chance to punch out if it, That was frustrating as hell. Bottom line, Chris needs to learn how to move his fargin head. Props to Vitali, he did what he came to do.

that is one of the main points to this tourney - to make the belts insignificant and have one true champ.  they already said If this goes well they will look to have a super 6 in other weight classes.

Post by: phillymic2000 on December 03, 2009, 10:35:11 AM
He shouldn't be fighting anymore, hell he should have hung it up 5-8 years ago.  I don't understand your hate for him, in his prime he was pretty much as good as they get.  He definitely shouldn't have fluctuated weight classes so much, if you are going to move up stay up.  That takes a major toll on the body. 

well first, it's the fact I am a huge Bhop fan so Im a little  :paranoid bias. But really other then his Hopkins fight 16 yrs. ago, the fight vs. Toney a year later and i must say an impressive domination of Jeff Lacy this year, all his big fights have been losses. Sure he's beaten Montell Griffin and McCallum, but the Glen Kelly and Clinton Woods of the world may have had impressive records but they sucked. He was handled by Tarver twice, Johnson hunted him down and tapped that ass, Calzaghe even after getting knocked down in the 1st, demolished him.

The thing is I don't think he should have fought any of those fights except for maybe the Tarver fights and even then he was a shell of his former self.  Watch the film on him when he is young and it is hard to imagine anybody beating him.

Hard to imagine? He probably never had a chin, it wasn't tested until he fought the fighters with power. Tarver or Johnson fighting him earlier imo would have beat him still, even a younger tito might have finished him off.
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: Drunkmasterflex on December 03, 2009, 07:42:04 PM
Well when he was younger he wouldn't have fought any of those bigger guys.  And if Tito was younger, so what?  Tito is one of the most overrated fighters ever imo.  Roy never should have been anything above super middleweight.  He is also four years younger.   

If you watch Roy after he went up to heavyweight and back down he was noticeably weaker.  It would have been nice to see Roy 10-15 years ago in the tournament they are having today. 

I think your hate for him skews your vision.  He was a great fighter, he is a complete shell of that now.

Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: DH on December 23, 2009, 10:59:35 AM
I didn't think the Diaz fight was so great at all. I was hoping he would sneak Paulie a shot or two when he kept letting his hands down, but the Baby Bull just didn't have it. I hate Paulie, too - the guy belongs on that Jersey Shore show. IMO, it was a worthless rematch - Paulie won fight #1, without question - If the Houston judges didnt farg him in September, his attention would have been spent trying to lure Hatton out of retirement for the rematch people would have liked to seen.

Bradley did look real good though. I'm kind of excited to see whats next in line for him.

youre not kidding.

here is what mayweather said:

"Before the mediation, my team proposed a 14-day, no blood testing window leading up to the fight. But it was rejected," Mayweather said. "I am still proposing the 14-day window but he is still unwilling to agree to it, even though this is obviously a fair compromise on my part as I wanted the testing to be up until the fight and he wanted a 30 day cutoff. The truth is he just doesn't want to take the tests.

"In my opinion it is Manny Pacquiao and his team who are denying the people a chance to see the biggest fight ever. I know the people will see through their smoke screens and lies. I am ready to fight and sign the contract. Manny needs to stop making his excuses, step up and fight."

cant believe these dumbasses are turning down an opportunity for the biggest purse in history. I do have no doubt though that mayweather would of kick the living shtein out pacquiao

Not the case. Thats what Pacmans camp wants now, so he can become the only guy to win titles in 8 weight classes.

Even still, who the farg cares? Matty said it right - Foreman was on the Cotto UC and unless youre a legit boxing fan, you didnt watch anything that night till he and Pac walked into the ring.

It's a shame - Boxing finally had a chance to grab some market share back from UFC and Floyd done farged it up. He's a Hoyda and I will go to the grave knowing he was scared to fight Manny - because he would have farged that pretty face up.

granted, they won't be drawing nearly as much as they do for blood donors, but still.......doing it after the fight changes absolutely nothing.  if something's there before the bell, it'll still be there afterwards too.

fight was ok but mayweather really showed why he's considered the best.  mosley put a hurt on him in those first few minutes but floyd just broke him down for the rest of the fight. 

the fight before that was better.  that red headed mexican alvarez got the piss beat out of him early and then dropped a whoopin.  fun to watch.

Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: DH on June 04, 2010, 01:17:06 PM
What Margarito did to Cotto's career was a travesty. He was on the fast track to stardom - probably would have had a fight with Money - and all that was washed away with stone hands.

Granted, regardless of whether or not he would have beat Margarito had no bearing on his fight with Pacman, but to only have that one loss on his record would have looked much stronger than how it looks now. Think about it - if he had only lost to Manny, I'm sure Floyd would be trying to fight him instead of the posturing he is doing with Manny now.

Instead Cotto has to fight a guy who few people who arent legit boxing fans know about in a match that honestly, would not receive half the press if it were not taking place in Yankee Stadium.

I think Cotto wins a UD but I'm pulling for Yuri..

Post by: DH on June 07, 2010, 12:08:19 AM
Mecantes handling of the whole fight was abominable..there was no good reason why he didnt call it after the second buckling, and then the towel incident was just bizaro..Who the farg cares who threw it - the guys knee was jello. At that point youre risking seriously hurting his career by continuing it even further..and telling him to walk it off was just ridiculous. And for the record, that knockdown was not caused by the shot to the body..it staggered Yuri, but his knee buckled again and boom went the dynamite.  

But Cotto looked good, even though I thought he should have. He's in an different class than my Hebrew brother.

i was at a loud ass bar.  and stupid drunk.  but it was looking cartoony to me.  if that was real than yeah there's no way he should have been out there that long.  and since when can a boxer overrule his corner if he wants to keep fighting? looked to me like the mercante asked him something, foreman didn't answer anything at all, then he said he could keep going.  but yeah cotto is back in form.

nope was definitely a dude, not sure if it was his trainer or what though.  two guys were kinda whispering to each other (i assumed his trainer and doctor) and then one guy threw it.

and yeah i think mercante was trying to make himself a little too much of the story during that fight by getting everyone out of the ring and restarting.  like i said, foreman's knees looked like a cartoon to me, which is why i kinda didn't really believe it. 

i've always liked cotto but how cool was he throughout the whole shenanigans? never bitched...just went out and started beating him some more.

Decent fight on ESPN friday night fights tonight. Chris Arreola fights Manuel QERDFDsomething and yes Manuel probably sucks, but I think its cool a top 15 heavy is back on ESPN after two crushing defefats from Klit and Adamek. It could be an exciting KO.

HBO has "Bad" Chad Dawson against Jean Pascal (ranked 7th) so this one could be entertaining, his only loss is to Froch. Dawson is sweet sometimes.

Bhop should've won the belt. He had Pascal on the run from rounds 4-9 and more then made up for those points. This looks bad for Pascal, his only quality win was a decision vs. Dawson in Canada.

I’m still young and I’ve never gotten too far away from the sport. I still have what it takes and I believe it is still one of my goals. I believe I’ve what boxing’s been missing, they need somebody to watch. I’m licensed in both New Zealand and Canada, so we look forward to getting busy.” Morrison is scheduled to be meeting Eric Barrack, a 3-0 heavyweight who last saw action in 2008.

Great fight Saturday night, Cotto went at it with Mayorga, it will play on Showtime this saturday. It was an exciting fight, Mayorga showed up in shape and really wanted it, but Cotto was just too much, and finished him in the 12th. I really hope he gets a rematch with that cheating scumbag Margarito and serves him with some justice. That will be a must see!

Also Demitrius Hopkins fights Friday night on ESPN this is his 3rd fight since losing to Holt. He took on two middle of the road guys and now steps it back up against Solomon who is undefeated at 16-0 should be a good one, Hopkins is 30-1-1 with 11 ko's.

Also It looks like Haye vs. Klit (Wlad) will actually happen!! thi could be the best heavy fight in a long time.

i always hear crafty...great defensive fighter...tough...cagey...even great career....but as far as an all around great fighter i rarely hear it

anyway wherever you think he stands in philly boxing history its a joke to even intimate that he might be the greatest philly athlete ever

Joey Giardello was not born in Philly, but moved to south Philly and fought there. Not one of the Top 15 "all time" fighters are currently boxing. Other then wins on that list. His body of work dwarfs anyone else on that list, the only one that comes close is Bass.

My impression of Hopkins was always that he was a guy who slowed the matches down and did a lot of hugging and defensive stuff. The Pascal bout was out of character for him, I thought
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: phillymic2000 on May 23, 2011, 11:12:12 AM
He definately tried to make every fighter he fought, fight his game, not theirs. He is amazing at it, He's had a few fights were he's been very aggressive, Trinidad, DLH, Mercado. But even in this fight, he kind of gave the first couple of rounds away and then came on strong.

What a bitch. That fight was the biggest bitch fight I've ever seen. The flopping and looking at the ref was the most pathetic thing I've ever seen. He would have gotten more respect if he was knocked out in the first round rather then prolonging the fight with his horrendus tactics. Merchant ripped him a new icehole and rightfully so.

The few big names are not fighting each other, except Hopkins fighting basically whoever wants some ("bad" Chad Dawson steps up next). The Ortiz/Mayweather fight has a shot to be good, if Ortiz can catch up to Mayweather.

The concept of the super six was not poor. It brought the top talent in the super middles and had them fight each other instead of meaningless title defenses. I will agree once they started dropping out it lost a lot of steam, but the concept and making it happen were good.

the concept would have been good had the fighters been guys which casual fans would recognize by name. the only guy with some sex appeal was jermaine taylor and he never should have been included in the first place. unless something dramatic happens and a pacman-type superstar emerges, once hop retires, im more or less doing the same as a boxing fan - its just not fun anymore.

Casual boxing fans know Froch, Kessler, Ward and Abraham. Besides Bute, they had the best fighters in the division in the tournament. Ward is easily the best of that bunch, the only problem is, he's a quiet, no trash talking non flashy good fighter.

Boxing is dead to me and should be for most of the world now. The fix was in, and they sent a big middle finger to everyone watching saying, 'We're taking your money, and we don't give a shtein'.

The bar I was at last night was freaking packed with people watching the fight.  There were a lot of people there watching football too but at least 50% of the place was boxing fans.

Shocked me too because I haven't seriously sat down to watch a fight since B-Hop was in his prime.

just watched that fight last night, such a shame. it's ortiz's own fault for that ridiculously obvious headbutt. was turning out to be a good fight too. what a debacle.

really does suck because there is nothing greater in sports than a good boxing match. especially heavyweight but that class has been a disater for a decade or more.

i can't remember a match worth spending a sat. night on since maybe pac-cotto or pac-margarito. basically manny is the only one who puts on a good show. i'm also in love with yoriorkis gamboa, dude is really fun to watch.

hate to say it but as much as i love boxing, they are doing everything wrong while UFC is doing everything right. took me a while to really pay attention to MMA but it really is great. rampage-jon jones this weekend should be awesome.

thats my point, i was stubborn for years and refused to watch...and if boxing could get their shtein together i still probably wouldn't be into it. but once you see a few good UFC fights and the skills that some of these dudes have, you really start to appreciate it. it has the occasional snoozefest also but minimal compared to boxing right now.

and UFC actually promotes their fighters, they all know any of them getting big name recognition helps the sport.  also helps that its run by one organization and not split up into 97 different title belts.

Rounds 3, 4, 11, and 12 should have been Marquez's.

That was Marquez's win...if not for the *upcoming Mayweather v. Pacquiao fight.

Manny was fighting defensively. His left was virtually taken away the whole bout.

(http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sites/default/files/a_images/people/athletes/20111113_compubox_fr.jpg)

Compubox stats show Pacman threw and landed more punches for a higher connection percentage. Also, he seemed to be the aggressor for most of the fight. In the later rounds, Marquez's corner were telling him that he was leading the fight on points. Imo, the last three rounds when Juan thought he was ahead on the judges cards, he lost the fight. He should have taken it to Pacman in those last rounds.

I'll say this, if Pacman fights like he did last night against Merriweather, he gets his ass kicked.

last night ufc got 5.7 million viewers on fox

its tough to say what that means given audience changing over the past few years but id imagine a mayweather/pacman fight on regular tv would destroy what ufc got

Post by: ice grillin you on November 15, 2011, 03:29:46 PM
but id imagine a mayweather/pacman fight on regular tv would destroy what ufc got

about as much as floyd would destroy pacqioww....theres way more boxing fans than ufc its just that theres nothing to bring boxing fans to the table in terms of big fights

ufc fans would watch pretty much anyone fight...its popular because its violence is on a animal instinct type level and the matches are short....you dont have to pay attention to the idosynchrocies of the sport for 45 minutes...theres a reason boxing is called the sweet science and ufc fans for the most part dont want to deal with that

ufc is like reading usa today and boxing is like the ny times...ufc can be put on in the background or at a sports bar without the sound and people still watch it even if they dont know who is fighting...that doesnt happen with boxing...

but if floyd manny was put on free tv is would be ratings murder of whatever the biggest ufc fight of all time is

Post by: phattymatty on November 15, 2011, 04:44:04 PM
not even worth arguing with people who have watched none or only a few fights but i felt the same way about it up until like a year or two ago. once you start to really watch and see the guys train and stuff there is a lot of technical skill to it. and although yeah there are probably more knockouts in UFC (since when is that a bad thing) there are still more that go to a judges decision than not.

it took years of awful boxing for me to get into it but it's really good once you start to know the fighters, terminology, etc.

although i'm psyched for the cotto-margarito fight coming up. i think cotto is the most fun to watch right now other than my man gamboa.

i don't see how this is a good thing. i'm still probably a bigger boxing fan than ufc (although it's getting close) but this is the exact reason no one cares about it any more. there are 70 different title belts, no one ever knows who is who, and they pretty much market only a small handful of guys.

yeah strange enough--I wrestled all through college, still watch a bunch of college wrestling on tv and have no real serious desire to watch the UFC.

it somewhat intrigues me because of the wrestling tactics involved, but its so much of the same shtein on the ground that it bores me to a degree. Nothing compares to the skill set of watching two guys going toe-toe for that many rounds, bobbing and weaving, throwing quick ass jabs and cuts seeing who falls first--unlike the UFC that where majority you bang out a double leg takedown in 2 seconds, hop on top of the guy and punch his covered face. I can see why some people like it, but its not my first choice.

me matty and my girl are goin to see amir khan in dc next saturday

Quote
Unified junior welterweight titleholder Amir Khan is taking the bold step of making his next defense in Washington, D.C. -- the hometown of Lamont Peterson, his opponent on Dec. 10.

"Khan-Peterson definitely will be in Washington, D.C.," Golden Boy promoter Richard Schaefer told ESPN.com on Thursday. "We are still looking to see which venue, but it will be in Washington."
 
Schaefer said that Seth Mitchell (23-0-1, 17 KOs), the top American heavyweight prospect, who is from the Washington suburb of Brandywine, Md., will fight on the HBO-televised undercard against an opponent to be determined.

Schaefer said he's looking at various venues in the nation's capital but hopes to have the card take place at the Verizon Center, the city's major arena, which is home to the NHL's Capitals, NBA's Wizards and Georgetown's men's basketball team. The Hoyas have a home game scheduled for Dec. 10, but it is possible a deal could be struck to change it.

"With a big fight like Khan-Peterson, and with Peterson being from Washington, and Seth Mitchell being on the card along with some other local talent, Washington is the place for this fight," Schaefer said.

England's Khan (26-1, 18 KOs) recently visited the city and enjoyed himself as a guest at a dinner honoring Muslim athletes hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Khan will be making his sixth title defense, including a fifth-round knockout of Zab Judah to unify belts on July 23 in Las Vegas.

Peterson (29-1-1, 15 KOs), the mandatory challenger, will be getting his second shot at a world title. He lost a decision to Timothy Bradley in 2009. There will be a media tour next week to promote the fight, beginning with a stop in London on Tuesday followed a visit to Washington later in the week.

Depends on who's fighting and the arena. We're talking $50-$10,000. I was at De La Hoya/Hopkins (LA vs. Philly...and Philly kicked ass) at the MGM. The girl I was dating at the time got us tickets through her old man. They were decent seats but would have cost us $600 a piece if we had paid for them.

Wtf with Bieber as part of his entourage?!

Floyd needs to go do his time and then make the Pacquiao bout happen. Mayweather made $47M tonight. Repeat that a few times...forty seven million dollars.

He'd pull $60 or more if he quits being funholey and fights Manny.

10 bucks at the bar down the street from my place. Puerto Ricans are annoying as all hell to watch a fight with, every time Cotto threw a punch they'd cheer like Mayweather went down. After the fight when it was clear who the winner was they were dancing around shouting Cotto's name.

Late money on this boxing match, Pac was -432 at 2pm it closed -397 at pinny. Lots of late money on Bradley.

bradley told arum after the fight that he couldnt beat pac. bradleys people DURING the fight knew it was over. this is such a farging joke its not even possible.

on the bright side hopefully a fix on this big of a scale can maybe get this sport cleaned up.

Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: PhillyPhreak54 on June 10, 2012, 03:02:39 PM
Yep, he tried to act offended and appalled but he had this shtein locked up. One theory being floated is that he's fronted Pacquiao a bunch of money because dude's having money problems. So as repayment for the front money he agreed to not protest the decision too vehemently. Arum comes out and says hes gonna make a boatload of cash on the rematch.

This is one time where I'd encourage some governmental involvement. At least start with the Nevada State Athletic Commission and let them dig into this. If they gloss over then the state government should dig in. Why? Because when its an event when people are betting money it cannot be fixed. You've essentially stolen from the people who bet on Manny.

barry retired way to early cause i think his dad got sick

Interesting - I am not too familiar with McGuigan.

I would go back to see Ali/Foreman Rumble in the Jungle.

I've always been an Iron Mike guy though...its a shame that he went off the reservation when he did. If he'd harnessed all that anger and kept it in the ring he would have surpassed Ali/Louis/Robinson as The Guy, I think. He was devastating.

Arturo Gatti/Mickey Ward clashes were memorable too

gatti wards were insane...but they happened after i got out of boxing so they dont mean as much to me....i bet dh would pick one of them for his go back to and be at fight

That moment when Pacquiao starts to fall and Marquez backs off, that's civilized sport right there.  In the same moment of a UFC fight, Marquez drops on him and starts trying to kill him, and would kill him if a ref doesn't drag him off.

Boxing is still and will always be > UFC

Aside from the occasional technicalities involved, that's exactly what it is....let me throw a hammer hope it catches, choke a guy out on the ground or beat his face in until he taps. Then I'll get an extra shot in for good measure because I'm tough and have better tattoos.

I wrestled for 20 years and for me the UFC is watched out of pure boredom flicking through channels..... but its like watching an hour of YouTube clips of the guy getting suckered-kind of have to watch just because.

If that were true, ufc guys and their superior skills would be ruling the boxing world, but they're not.  That's because a ufc fighter isn't a good enough boxer, or wrestler, or jujistu artist, to get it done against the best in that particlar sport, so he becomes a jack-of-all-trades and satisfies himself with extreme fighting against other coulda-beens.  I could care less about the intricacies of the brazilian grappling technique specialized by some roided out kickboxing reject.  MMA is a mongrel spectacle for the masses of bloodthirsty idiots who can't get enough unmitigated violence from more mainstream sports and media.  The only thing that could make the fans happier would be actual fights to the death.

bunch of people who have never watched ufc talking shtein, as usual.

i'm as big of a boxing fan as anyone on here, if not more, but ufc is way more than ground and pound. in fact there are more straight knock out punches than there are submissions. they just have to be more rounded.

i was stuck in my old ways for years too and said the same things as the haters are saying, but once you get into it, it's clear as day. the world is changing old heads, get with it.

the manny marquez fight was fantastic. but they are few and far between...which is why that was pacquio-marquez 4.

boxing is dead. although there are a bunch of youngins who give me hope for the future. especially gamboa...dude is awesome.

my point is if you like boxing, there is not possible reason to hate ufc except to be stubborn. that sweet science shtein is bullshtein, the technical aspect of ufc can be just as good. but yes it's more barbaric. and more exciting at the moment.

i'm done talking this up but if anyone wants to see a really great spectrum of ufc, watch tonights fights. 5 bouts, 4 KOs...i'll admit it two of the three were streetbrawl haymakers but god damn is it fun to watch. maybe bad defense or maybe pure power who cares. the one 3 round wrestling match is what turns people off. i don't like it either. but take it for what it is.

I used to be a UFC hater. But the matches, at least the main matches tend to be exciting and disappoint less often than not.

Boxing, you're right, pacquiao v marquez is few and faaaaaaaaaaaar between. It's why boxing has lost its fans.

Boxing is like the GOP. It's stuck in the past holding on.

UFC is the new demographic. It's fast, its, furious, and championship fights happen very often and guys you can at least follow for a year. It keeps it fresh.

Boxing, well, you have to hope that the framers of what boxing is today see the writing on the wall and adapt. Otherwise, its dead.

Just reread a series of articles leading up to the Tex Cobb/Larry Holmes fight in '82. The fight was so brutal that Cosell swore afterwards that he would never announce another boxing match. Cobb took a massive beating for 12 rounds but never went down and was screaming about getting drunk and partying after the bell rung to end the fight.

Did you try QB's suggestion?  Not the best quality but I've watched the last two Pac Man fights and the last JSP MMA on First Row.  You can go 4 or 5 rounds with no problem then all of a sudden it'll freeze up.  Frustrating at times but its better than shelling out $50+.

im not even sure he top 10 of all time and im a huge floyd fan....its mostly not his fault because his generation just didnt have the depth of quality fighters that the past had but the fact is he fought very few great fighters in their prime

to me hes the welterweight version of b hop... technical wizard....defensive fighter...lack of top notch opponents...never had a truly marquee fight

Personally, I would have been giddy to leave the time machine in the garage and watch Manny fight Floyd, but that bitch made every excuse under the sun to avoid fighting him. The bullshtein he pulled w the blood test was so over the top bad that I will never respect him again. Unfortunately, Pacmans loss to JMM somewhat hurt the possibility that he would have even beat Floyd, but we all deserved to see that fight, and Floyd signlehandedly made sure that would never happen. But, oooooh, he beat a Guerrero.

I like Garcia and will root for him but he has no chance. Mayweather is unbelievable. Sure his fights are boring but his defense, technique and speed are unreal. Probably one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Quote
Don called Jackie and told her that he would fly us down to Florida and put us up so we could work out a settlement. Jackie, her son, my girlfriend Luz, and I got on Don’s private jet and flew down. I packed a big block of coke and a duffel bag with a half-pound of reefer. I was doing my coke and smoking my blunts and listening to my Walkman and I was higher than the plane was when an epiphany hit me.

“This is my motherfarging plane. I paid for this plane. And this motherfarger is acting like he’s doing me a favor sending me down on my own farging plane. This stillupfront's mom is playing me.”

The drugs were playing with my head and I was freaking out and getting jealous.

Don picked us up at the private airport in his Rolls and he had Isadore Bolton, who used to be my chauffeur before he stole him from me, driving some of Don’s associates in the lead car. We were driving down to Miami from Fort Lauderdale on the I-95. Don said some innocuous thing, and all that jealousy and rage spilled out of me and I kicked him in his farging head. Boom! You don’t turn your back on a jealous cokehead.

Post by: AO1 on May 04, 2014, 09:37:00 AM
Maidana will get a rematch...that was too good of a fight not to have a second go around. Floyd was flustered through thd first 5. I don't know if he just took him lightly but even when he turned it on he wasn't dominating the way he usually does. His defense was cracked, he still got his trademark counter punches in but they weren't as effective as normal. Some fighters who aren't that good just match up well against others. Maidana was landing some nice shots over the top...hd kept his composure even when Floyd would get some good shots in. I agree with the decision but the scorecards should have been closer.

Will pirate feeds be available? Of course.

Their location and how reliable they will be remains to be seen. Watch this space: http://www.reddit.com/r/BoxingStreams

Around here, sports bars and strip clubs are showing the fight but having a cover charge for the massive PPV bill. I haven't decided what to do yet.
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..

I've seen almost every big time fight for the last 10 years at bars for free. But this is the first time that every single one has a cover. Only 10 to 15 bucks though.

Yeah I heard on radio that to show the fight a small sports bar would be charged $4800 and the price goes up from there

my neighbor is in vegas but without tickets...he says the only places in vegas allowed to show the fight are mgm affiliated spots and the prices to get in those parties are out of control...he cant even get it in his hotel room...his boss who he is there with has a sling box and they are going to sling it to their hotel room to watch

also i read that bars are charged the at home ppv cost per seat
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: phattymatty on May 01, 2015, 07:12:55 PM
the price for bars goes by fire capacity laws. i think for 200 people its minimum $6500. then goes up depending on how big the place is.

i almost went to vegas this weekend but am going next weekend instead. been there for fight weekends before and it gets to the point where it's so busy it's not even fun.
Title: Re: Boxing World continued..
Post by: MDS on May 01, 2015, 07:13:38 PM
i watched the last mayweather fight at parx and it was free

a lot of casinos will have it, but id imagine it might only be in a certain area thats part of some package. also the douchebag factor will be off the charts.

im either going to be out doing something or will hope for a good stream. boxing actively doesnt want fans, so why go out of your way to be one.

Mike has a drinking problem...you could tell he was lit. One of my favorite athletes ever. When I was a senior in high school I had to do a persuasive speech...so I chose why Tyson didn't rape Desiree Washington. 20 years later and I think that argument speaks for itself. He was wrongly convicted and it derailed his career.

What's the point of this? I mean what's his endgame on denying credentials to people who speak out on his domestic violence issues? It's not going to make his past go away.

It's a petty childish thing to do.

And if I'm the media outlets of this people I'm calling foul to MGM because it's their property and also to the boxing commissions and leadership folks who sanction the fight. The fighter shouldn't dictate who covers a match. Wanna be a bitch and ban them from your gym or sparring sessions? Ok fine. But you shouldn't be able to do this

There will be two ring announcers when Floyd Mayweather takes on Manny Pacquiao in the richest fight in boxing history - Michael Buffer will introduce Manny Pacquiao, and Jimmy Lennon Jr will introduce Floyd Mayweather Jr.

It is because of the different broadcasters the boxers are on - Pacquiao is on HBO with Buffer, and Mayweather on Showtime with Lennon Jr.

HBO ring announcer Buffer and Showtime's Lennon Jr also did this 13 years ago.

Buffer and Lennon previously shared announcing duties back in 2002 - the Lennox Lewis-Mike Tyson heavyweight championship fight. Buffer introduced Lewis, while Lennon introduced Tyson.

i dont wanna hear anyone complain about how boring this fight was simply because of the hype....this is every mayweather fight...if you paid a 100 bucks ppv or 10000 bucks to get in you knew what was gonna happen and shut up

Yep Floyd is all about defense. He's gonna slow it down and jab and move. He's not gonna sit still and take too much.

My problem is Pacquiao when he was going in on him didn't finish. He'd lay into him and then back up.

I had it 116-112

Lost every goddamn bet I put down. Sheesh. Oh well.

Outside of a couple shortlived bursts, it was Mayweather domination. No way in on him, no way to overcome the reach difference. Was an actual fight for maybe just the 4th and 6th rounds.

Manny could've had him if he would've stay inside when he had him on the ropes those couple times. I think it was the fourth he stunned him pretty good and he should've went to pound town and he didn't. Frustrating.

true...but theres less money than the first. i dont think theyd come back and do it again unless they know they could make more. and they wont. nobody wants to see that again.

but then again the reason this thing took place to begin with was because of the recent mediocrity of floyds ppv sales. and also hes a violent serial woman beating coward psychopath. so i cant really predict what hes going to do.

boxing has been around for 150 years and has dozens of weight classes...just because you are not in the top ten of all time doesnt mean you arent one of the best ever....hes the best of his era...that automatically makes him one of the best ever

no one would but b hop near the top ten either but hes obviously one of the best ever

He effectively broke the sport, figuring out ways to win while barely generating any entertainment whatsoever.

And he's a piece of shtein as a human being, but so was Tyson, who we all enjoyed because he's entertaining as hell.

I like mma a lot but i'd be surprised if mcgregor lands more than 25 punches total. he's never seen anyone dodge like floyd. that being said, mcgregor takes bare fist punches to the grill and I could easily see it going the distance.

holy crap im so glad ive never come across an mma fan....that is incredible

i think mcgregor probably lands zero punches but no more than 3....as long as floyd takes this serious he will knock mcgregor out....in no more than three rounds....again assuming hes not there just for the money and dances around or doesnt play any offense at all...i also think there virtually no chance this fight goes really deep much less the distance...theres no chance mcgregor get in 12 round boxing shape in the next two months....assuming he even tries to...its akin to usain bolt having to get ready to run the 1500 meter.....mcgregor is not going to be in the kind of aerobic shape it takes to fight for 12 rounds

a farging punchers chance refers to a fight with two boxers....it would be like saying the best triathlete in the world would have a punches chance swimming against michael phelps winning the tour de france or winning the boston marathon

for sure the hype is going to be 100x bigger than the actual fight. although most floyd fights are garbage to watch anyway.

landing no more than 3 punches is laughable though. this guy is actually a boxer not some scrub. he farging trained under freddie roach at one point in his life and with some of ireland's best. he obviously has no right to be in the ring with floyd but he could hold his own against lesser pro boxers.

hes not a boxer period...unless he has had professional fights of any stature that i dont know about....im not a conor mcgregor expert....but hes literally me or you if we got into his shape and then messed around in a gym when we were 12

and i would say if he got three punches in in say three rounds it wouldnt be as bad a showing as your prediction of 25 punches in 12 rounds

I can't root for McGregor even though Mayweather is an all time icehole.  His "sport" is lowest common denominator shtein, I can't stand it.  Boxing is hardly the most civilized sport but the distinctions that separate the two do matter. 

Hitting a down man is for bitches and punks and street fights.  No class to it at all.  Their only claim to legitimacy stems from pointing out that there are rules e.g. even though you can pound on an knocked-out prone opponent, so long as you stop when the ref intercedes, it's all good.  farg that. 

Neanderthal fans for a barbaric sport, hope he is humiliated by the boxer.

Jesus. I enjoy watching the fights but it's really difficult to get into a sport with such opaque and subjective scoring. Non-KO outcomes might as well be predetermined by Vince McMahon.

i just finished watching this. actually one of the better fights in a while but i would have def given it to pacman.

not really as disgusted as some seem to be though, have seen much more lopsided upsets. certainly doesn't make it better but meh. prob just some way to get manny one more title fight and go out on top. and makes the rematch 10x more money.

laughed my ass off when horn's high pitch voice started digging floyd after the fight.

Any word on the ratings for this fight?  I can't recall the last fight with a card featuring someone of Manny's stature, albeit he is washed up, being available via non pay per view.

We actually enjoyed watching it and like J said, totally forgot it was on ESPN.  Manny got hosed.

I had a long day and didn't bother staying up for the fight. It's all over YouTube this morning. I credit Mcgregor, I didn't think he'd make it past the 2nd. First 5 rounds were fairly even, from the 6th on school was in session.


Igs if you're up the fights all over YouTube but you gotta watch it fast because they're going down as soon as they go up. Here's the copy I watched

Gervonta Davis missed weight, lost his belt, wore a Muppets costume to the ring, looked unimpressive against a lesser opponent, but still managed to win.

what a great fight.

no head butts. don't even think ref had to break them up until the 9th or 10th round. GGG was on the offensive from the beginning til the end.

and yeah that 118-110 is an absolute joke.
