I am not a fan of Tyson Fury's but actually do kind of feel for him on this. This is now the third time in less than a year a big fight has been postponed on him and the 2nd time it happened with about a week prior to the fight.

If I were Fury, I would move on from Chisora and try to get something else scheduled here soon. Anyway, he already beat Chisora once a few years ago. Tony Thompson called Fury out and a Shannon Briggs fight would garner a lot of attention. There is also Antonio Tarver who is still seeking a big heavyweight fight as well (though Tarver may be holding out hopes for Haye).

The bad news for us fight fans in the US is that AWE pulled their broadcast of the card with the Fury-Chisora fight off. I love the sport and would have loved to have been able to see the other fights on the card.

"I have a problem with this whole Pac/Mayw/Cotto era. They're great fighters but the traditions of boxing are being forgotten, swept away. I know this is a rant but here goes...if it's not at the correct weight it's a non-title catchweight match in my mind. Sadly, it seems everything is negotiable these days. Was Cotto-Martinez made at 159? If it was it, wasn't a middleweight title fight and shouldn't be viewed as such. In the same way Ray Leonard didn't really win the lightheavyweight title from Don Lalonde as the Golden Boy was forced to weigh in at 168. If Cotto and Mayweather fight with an upper limit of 156 it's not a middleweight title fight. I read PBF wanted to defend both his 147/154 belts against Maidana? That's impossible - either Maidana has to weight under 147 or under 154. If he's under 147 he's a welter, if he's over he's a lightmiddle. Part of me thinks the whole idea of being a 'champion' of anything is meaningless nowadays. You can set your own weights and still get sanctioned, what exactly is a welterweight anymore? I don't mind the catchweight stuff giving us good matches, but they should not be sanctioned as title fights if they aren't at the proper weight limit. This bull makes me think why don't we just scrap a century of history and classifications and say fighter A is fighting fighter B at whatever weight (fill in the 140-154lb figure) and forget things being for titles or mentioning weight classes? It's virtually where we're at. Rant over!!"

I like to hear you rant Gibola... You bring up some interesting concerns

I don't see the comparison's to Ricardo Lopez. Lopez was a different breed to me, a once in a generation special fighter.

To me, Lopez possessed all the attributes of an all time great but never really got the proper recognition due to the weight class he fought in most of his career. He was almost perfect in his ring technique during his prime and rarely got hit. As a matter of fact, some would argue during his prime he was perfect. I can't remember him being hit clean very often during his prime.

I remember a fight back in March of 1997 against Mongkol Chareon. Lopez was dominating as usual but Chareon was tough as nails and would not go away. Anyway, I can't remember which round but it was later in the fight when Chareon caught Lopez with a flush hard punch. I almost fell out of my chair as I could not recall anyone ever landing clean on Lopez until that moment. And the real funny part was Lopez came back to his corner after the round and apologized for getting hit.

Lopez was not only a great defensive fighter but what made him so special was that he was aggressive in so many of his fights. He knew the exact right times to throw, at the correct range and right angles to hand and be unable to be countered by his opponents. He was not bring to watch at all and fought in a style that most others would take a lot of punches. But Lopez almost never got hit clean during his prime.

Not to mention, as pointed out in the article, Lopez also possessed one punch power. He was as close to a "perfect" fighter as they come.

Rigo is very good but he is no Lopez. Then again, I don't think we will ever see another fighter like Lopez again.

"A lonely division. I like it.



John Henry Lewis was often dismissed as a powder-puff puncher. I'm guessing that he would have thrown more punches with bad intentions if not for a terrible incident that happened when he was just 16 years old.



In his seventh pro fight, in Prescott, Arizona, Lewis scored a third round knockout over a 21-year-old opponent named Sam Terrin. Knocked to the canvas after absorbing a punch to the jaw -- and with his wife looking on -- Terrin never got up and was declared dead a few minutes later. Lewis was taken into custody awaiting the coroner's report, standard procedure back in those days.



The coroner determined that Terrin had a defective heart, but this had to be an emotionally traumatic incident for Lewis, one that weighed heavily on his mind each time that he entered the squared circle."

This theme is an even bigger topic over in MMA, where they have been dishing out suspensions like McDonalds applications. One of the hot topics is the TRT or Testosterone Replacement Therapy, but what I see there I think applies across the board.

One well known, now suspended MMA athlete (Chael Sonnen) said about TRT that he could 'die' without the therapy. Now the athlete is probably complicit, but if a doctor told him that and then gave him the therapy, then you are entering into a question of medical ethics.

How in the world can a doctor look at a trained, professional athlete who may be low in natural test or tired for a few days and diagnose that he could die? Most doctors would prescribe rest, a few days of from training, and you bounce back. This guys doctor shot him up to 14 times the normal human level. That is therapy?

And the entire medical community is complicit, because doctors don't usually call each other out on this sort of stuff.

So the solution would be to allow it all. If you want to drink mule **** because it makes you stronger, go ahead. Have the doctors watch over the health of the users and educate them on the repercussions, but let them shoot ape blood directly into the back of their eye if they want to. I dont know, as someone pointed out, there are a lot of enhancements and things that are still legal

Hi there.



Point taken.



If the upper weight for a Cotto-Mayweather is 160 and they both weight in 152, hell, if they weigh in 142, no problem, they could have weighted 160 if they chose and it's a middleweight fight if one is the legitimate middleweight champ. But saying a middleweight in a title fight can't weigh over 155 or 156 is the problem. It's no longer at the middleweight limit and can't be for the title. We need to be careful or we'll have welterweight champions redefining their weight class as 'up to 144' if you want a title shot. If they weren't sanctioned as legit title fights you'd have some defence against it. As the bodies sanction everything - Pacman/PBF/Cotto can do what they want and that's wrong. If Cotto fights Andy Lee with a 155lb limit is that a middleweight title fight? Not to me. Call me old-fashioned but if both guys aren't free to weight 160 it sure as hell isn't a middleweight title fight. Hagler v Leonard/Hearns/Duran all at 160. None of this rubbish.

For the record, anything below a weight division is in the division. New Jack attitude is the problem, not the weights and so-called catchweights.



Bob FitzSimmon was heavyweight at between 155lbs and 172lbs. Never was he a real heavyweight if somebody insists that he has to be over 175lbs for the division. Henry Armstrong won the welterweight title at 138lbs. So was he really a welterweight? Tommy Burns fought as the heavyweight champion of the world at between 162lbs to 180lbs. So was he really a heavyweight? When Da Manny beat Margarito for the light middleweight title, Da Manny was 144lbs. So was he really a light middle?



Fans and fanfaronades are bytching a lot about nothing. Boxing is always the way it has always been -- negotiable and corrupted and crooked as a banana. In other words, it is fine as usual. And making a lot of peeps do as usual: bytch, complain and go apesyet. Hehe! Holla!

I'm getting that book this week.

I still believe its a possibility. ....The world awaits. Mayweather only has another year left at the most.
If he still has the ability to fight at the championship level ....he should make it count for something. If he doesn't win the paycheck will make for an adequate retirement. Allowing him to maintain his lavish lifestyle.
Hollywood is not going to give the stiff acting boxer too many more opportunities after he retires.
Did any body see Mayweather's cameo in Think Like a Man 2 ?.... Needs lots of work.

The Commish:

Nice job, Billy. Long post, lot of words. Few truths.

You spent quite a lot of time talking about welter/jr.middle Wendy Toussaint and how I took him away from the gym. The fact is, soon after he first walked into the gym, he felt the owners coming onto him very strong, wanting him to sign something. He was confused and scared. He tried talking to me, but I don't speak Creole, so I had no idea what he was talking about.

To keep things short, I called a friend of mine who does speak Creole. He spoke to Wendy. I told Wendy if you want to turn pro, you should train there and have at least a few amateur fights. It is not what he wanted. I gave Wendy my number, and told him he could call me any time, and if he ever hasd questions, I would make sure to pick him up and take him to my friend, who could translate, and I'd answer them. When I returned to the gym, it was discovered I had taken Wendy somewhere. Frankie and I had words.

At that point, I elected to leave the gym. Wendy called me, then talked to my friend again. He told me he wanted me to work with him. I told him I would get him in shape first, then we would work on the boxing. For close to three months I worked with him. I worked with him six days a week.

Then, he was paid a visit at his home by Frankie. He returned to the gym and started boxing. He is a gifted young man and quite an athlete. I wish him well, but can clearly see he needs a new trainer. Clearly. A few weeks agop, he came running back to me to manage him...said he would sign with me. I turned him down and told him to go back to Frankie. He did.

As for Anthony, he is also a very gifted athlete. It is no secret that he didn't take some segments of his boxing career as seriosuly as he should have and as seriously as he takes his career now. I think you are doing a great job with him and are a much better trainer than you mentioned in the post above.

Dom? No, I don't particularly like him. Frankie & I? We mended fences and shook hands months ago.

I do not disparage or make up stories. Nor do I post pictures of me with celebs and then make up stories about them. When they are on my show I take photos with them. I've also been in this game close to 50 years. I think I have made a few acquaintances in that time. I am out there on the social media network.

Before I ramble as long as you did, I wish you and Mr. Karperis my best.

He has a nice career in front of him.

My best.

With sincerity,

"Good point, he's very small for the weight.



He may very well have a Gamboa beard but I just haven't seen the evidence of his "weak" chin yet.



Same with Ward. I've seen him eat flush shots from Al Green and Carl Froch. But you can read much into the Darnell Boone debacle.



Wlad on the other hand is vulnerable whereas his brother has a jaw of titanium.



Random aside: I don't get the argument for Wlad on the P4P list. If you take away his dimensions - height, reach etc - is he skill-for-skill among the 10 best fighters in the world?



I doubt it.



Now imagine Rigo, B-Hop, Ward or Floyd as 6-7 heavyweights with the exact same attributes they have now.



The mere thought should be illegal."




If Ward ever accepts a fight with GGG or Kovalev you will witness exactly what I'm talking about.

I would include Stevenson but I think Ward could neutralize Stevenson. And he has been dazed on few occasions. ( Edison Miradanda hurt him but Ward kept his composure)



Its not a crime to have an average chin.

Few men are put together like Marvin Hagler or Julio Caesar Chavez.



If you hit most guys on the point of their chins ... They will drop. Sometimes a fighter is in such tremendous shape the can recuperate extremely fast. If a fighter is clipped ....but not hard enough to induce a state of instant unconsciousness.... The subsequent Adrenalin surge can make him temporarily invincible.



I'm just going by my personal experience. And what Ive seen. I had an average chin during my boxing days. But if the adrenaline was flowing I could take a sledge hammer to the face and keep on going. Sometimes getting dropped can be a good thing ... But sometimes the fighter can't get back up...... The adrenalin rush can't always be relied upon.



Regarding Klitschko's pound for pound status. I once heard a locally renound Karate instructer say when he was being praised for his ability....." If only l was born a big dude ".



And while I've always said that Wlad's success was due to his size he has also incorporated some new wrinkles to his game. He's learned how to pace himself so that he can stay mobile for twelve rounds while keeping his punch rate up...and he's learned how to relax when he gets hit , hold on, and just ride out the storm.

And he's no longer the one dimensional one-two fighter he used to be. Its almost scary that he's still head and shoulders above the rest of the heavyweights He's 37 years old and hasn't been tested since his early years.



Well I got off topic a bit...I'll catch up tomorrow.

F it. I'm just going to say it. I wasn't there but people were.



Marquez is most likely on a designer steroid. It's not as amplified as people think. Doing weights when you've never done any will yield results.



However he's exceeded his natural frame, which is a dead give-away. Homeboy is most 75% on some EPO, he's on HGH and he's probably on the cream. Memo loves the cream.



And Storm just broke it down perfectly. Certain combos give you extra effects.



We're in a forum so we can express whatever we want. We're not held to NY Times ethical standards as posters and that's good bc the truth can come out.



There's some new ish too that may even be more potent that they're doing now. Either way, fact is it's undetectable.



VADA, USADA, it doesn't MADA!



His nemesis is/was on that high-octane sh*t Lance used.



Kryptonite? Come on. It's clear as day. EPO! Everyone knows. (Holla at me Sept 14.)



Khan? All kinds of high-octane crap.



Chavez. But he's gotten popped. Only idiots get popped.



Berto? TEST!



Gamboa? You already know. Dude was likely cycling for his last fight, though this is just what I see not what I've heard.



SP? I'd trust him with my niece but I wouldn't trust that focker with a syringe.



There's so much.



I was reading about Florence Griffith-Joyner, an Olympic-level sprinter struggling to silver medals in '84 and '87.



She starts getting advice from Ben Johnson, gets comic-hero buff, jaw elongates, voice gets deep and she's SMASHING world records while increasing 100m and 200m performance by like 0.30 seconds.



At close to 30 years of age.



Then Johnson gets popped, tests get stringent and *POOF* she retires at the height of her powers.



Then she dies at 38 from classic steroid side effects.



"Things that make you go 'Hmm!'"



And we see a lot of that crap nowadays.



Because we want to believe.



And these jackals deceive.



Some time ago, Dino pointed out something very significant: at the elite level, no matter what new regimen you join, you're only going to improve by 5% at most.

Marquez, if he was on PEDs, and if he was on a AOPES as claimed, was (most likely) not solely on the AOPES.

Frequently AOPES and other - more steroid like - performance enhancing substances are mixed together, and even if they're not some of the new $hit out there breaks down into compounds and molecules that provide other performance benefits; similarly to how cocaine users that drink report a better high - because the two mixed in the body create a Cocaethylene "mix".

Marquez, to me, looked as if he had far too much fluid retention for a guy that was not on the juice and/or only on EPO or another AOPES.

If AOPES's were not beneficial to boxer's performances, then neither is altitude training or any kind of stamina training for that matter.

This is a crazy game, y'all. And like TGD says, these guys are way ahead of the testing. Conte says he's apprehensive to speak of it because it gives other dopers/peddlers knowledge to continue coming up with ways to circumvent the testing.

I will say this: Oscar De La Hoya is damn good guy for forgiving Mosley for basically drugging himself to victory in their rematch.

He won the last four rounds in his 7-5 victory, edging it by having the extra conditioning his EPO shots and steroids gave him.

I'm not sure I would've just forgiven him for that."

"I hear you about Conte. But he doesn't know "syet 'bout boksing," biting off Uncle Roger. Boxing is largely mental. Guys on roids have been going off in gyms for years. We call it "Roid Rage." And tell them to pipe down or we throwdown on their arses. And literally made them CRY.

Every top-dawg pug knows every punk-bytch phony on dat syet. And just wait for him to go off, so that you can invite him into dat squared jungle for a skill-pays-the-bill arse thrashing. There is no shortcuts to boxing glory other being given gift verdicts.

You cannot have agitated rage and be successful against cool, calm and collected adroited boxers and/or boxers-killa-thrilla-blood-spilla from Manila and anywhere else.

The problem with EPO, is that it makes an adroited whup-@$$er into an edgy neurosis. That is what Marquez has become in his metamorphosis of Hulkquez. If Da Manny would not have got eager and oky, Hulkquez would not have come out the next round.

One needs pure mental endurance and stamina. EPO does not relax you or smarten you. That is what you need as the top of the food chain of kick arse. I read you clearly. But find me one guy with mad boxing skills to tell you that he was helped by EPO. He will tellnyou that it takes away, not improve. And it creeks him the double fudge out. Holla!"

"Even if you locked GGG up in an airtight reinforced lead vault, .... it still wouldn't prevent the luminesce of his near limitless potential from shining through.

From his impeccable footwork, which permits him to glide effortlessly towards his opponent while cutting of the ring like a geometry major.... Golovkin simultaneously exudes the technical menace of a cyborg super soldier... Calmly seaching his database for the right combination as he backs his prey into a corner.

His balance is fluid enough to allow him to change direction instantaneously to adjust his offence or defense as needed.

And his polyphasic self adjusting offence is delivered in non repeating combinations that usually solicits a panic attack from his victims.

Its a formless pattern that doesn't allow his opponent the opportunity of predicting when or where the next salvo will land.

A lot of empty praise is being heaped on Geale in publicizing this fight.

Not that the man doesn't deserve respect.
Geale is tenacious, throws in volume and even though he's known to have a sturdy set of wheels...
Geale isn't so mobile that he tries to circumnavigate the entire ring like Lara hoping to pile up pot-shot points from the outside. That's not his style.

However the man has already lost to two fighters who could never win a title fighting in the United States. (Mundine and Barker) those guys are decent but they're not even considered as dangerous threats to our domestic talent.

Geales' title winning effort against Sturms is noteworthy but Sturms is a long way away from being the guy who lost a highly controversial decision against Oscar D L Hoya.
Sturm became an isolated fighter and grew soft taking on middling challengers like Sam Soliman and Ronald Hearns. The same Yearns who was beat up by journyman Harry Joe Yorgey.

however it must be said that Geale is a hands-on blue collar warrior... By the middle rounds Geale will have his earmuffs-on, his chin tucked, standing in the pocket forehead to forehead trying to outbang a banger who is so far advanced in the skills department its like comparing a blue-collar worker to the CEO of the company.

By the 9th round or sooner Golovkin will provide authorizion for the valiant Aussee to take some medical leave ....Either by way of cuts, a stunning knock out or by debilitating body shot.

You never know ....GGG has so many tools he may just want to get creative this time.

Enjoy the show."

The Historic Fifth Crown: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, 2015

In 1988, Sugar Ray Leonard defeated Donny Lalonde and was handed two world championships for the price of none. HBO’s Larry Merchant sniffed at this. After a post-fight studio discussion with Leonard, he turned to us. “You may have noticed I made no reference to Sugar Ray Leonard winning his fourth and fifth world championships. This may be the sincerest form of flattery because the promoters have invented three titles for every two pounds. The fallout is that the word ‘champion’ means less than the fighter, who is or isn’t...

Is Guillermo Rigondeaux The Next Finito Lopez?

Cuban southpaw Guillermo Rigondeaux took the starch out Thailand’s veteran Sod Kokietgym and taught him a valuable lesson in defending himself at all times. Kokietgym must have blinked because a half second after attempting to touch gloves with Rigondeaux he was met with a crisp right and left that floored him for the count on Saturday at Macau, China. Rigondeaux (14-0, 9 Kos) retains the WBO and WBA junior featherweight world titles and proved to his Cuban brethren, fans and others that you don’t need to run around to be exciting....

GOLOVKIN MUST LIVE IN PRESENT AND LOOK TO FUTURE, NOT BE COMPARED TO PAST LEGENDS JUST YET

For someone with so relatively limited a professional resume, WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin finds himself in a curious position. The 32-year-old Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs), who defends his alphabet titles against former IBF/WBA 160-pound champ Daniel Geale (30-2, 16 KOs) in the HBO-televised main event Saturday night in Madison Square Garden’s big arena, just might be, as a growing number of his devotees are claiming, the most pulverizing knockout artist in boxing today. His KO rate (a tick below 90 percent) is the...
