I have no pick in this fight. I've seen both fight live in NY. I was really impressed each time. Perez vs Magomed was a brutal tough fight where Perez came out on top. Jennings surprised me big time with his win over Szpilka. This card should be exciting from top to bottom.

My good doctor, you can go on to Boxrec and pull up the reality of the actuality. Sugar Ray Leonard was being facetious. Boxers are some facetious jivers. I bet the interviewer knew that Ray was bulljiving.

He fought in 10oz gloves in 20-foot ring. I've been to all of the Sugarman's homes. And I've saw the original gloves that he fought the Marvelous One with.

The truths in boxing are already surrounded by a bodyguard of myths and facetious double jive. Unless the boxer is saying "This is on da real," he is probably being cute and facetious. Holla!

I like Jennings in this one.

One factor to look at are the recent fights of Jennings and Perez. Jennings has been in with solid pros and come away with pretty impressive wins. He also did not take a lot of punishment in those fights. Perez took a lot of punches in his most recent fights. I am not saying Perez is shopworn but those fights had to take something out of him. We don't know how much exactly and won't know until he steps in the ring Saturday.

I also think Jennings is improving as a fighter each time out. He was a late starter to the sport but is athletic and honing his skills with each outing. He last fight in January was against his toughest opponent to date and also his best performance to date. I expect to see continued strides from Jennings in this fight.

Its going to be a solid heavyweight fight. I think Jennings is going to ultimately prevail and set himself up for bigger things in the heavyweight division.

I thought Hagler handed the first four rounds to Leonard before he finally started to fight like Hagler ! I still think Hagler won the fight after giving away the first four rounds ! Also, does anyone remember how many warnings Leonard got for low blows without losing a point ?

Thanks for the Info guys.


Damn that fight still irks me Commish I can only imagine Hagler.

Hagler and Duran were my dads favorite fighters, I grew up watching those guys at a very young age....




Question. Who do you think really won the fight Hagler or SRL?


The controversy lies in effective punching for Hagler vs SRL flashy ineffective spurts...


Thoughts?

Tyrone Everett. How sad. Shot dead by his girlfriend 10 days after his last fight. Took a 36-1 record to the grave when he should have been undefeated. Everyone on press row scored the fight for Everett. The Associated Press guy had it 11-4. It wasn't surprising that the Puerto Rican judge favored his countryman, but how could the Philadelphia judge see it that way too?

The one horrible decision that sticks out in my mind was Ossie Ocasio's majority decision over Dwight Muhammad Qawi. I had the fight scored 9-1 for Qawi. My friend Herb "Herbie Hoops" Lambeck -- maybe the most knowledgeable boxing guy in Vegas back then -- scored it the same way. What makes it more incomprehensible was that the two judges that scored the fight for Ocasio were two of the best judges in the city.

I'll say this in their defense. How you see a fight depends in large part on where you are seated and the judges had a better view of the action.

That's the worst moment for a ring announcer: When he knows that the crowd will go ballistic after he finishes reading off the scores. Some in the audience act as if the ring announcer was part of the conspiracy. Been there.

Hahahaha that made me chuckle good. I don't blame him either commissioner, it was the right tactic and it took him so close to the finish. I think he, as well as almost everyone else who fought Duran before 60 fights, believed that after 9 or 10 Duran would fade and you would have opportunities to shoot at him. Unfortunately they all found out that Roberto could punch all the way to the finish without lightening up on the power. What a fighter.

"In an interview Marvelous Marvin Hagler did with me for the MSG Network right before he went into serious negotiations for the fight against Leonard, Hagler disclosed to me just how positive he was he would beat Leonard.

"Like bigger gloves. Like a bigger ring. Like 12 rounds instead of 15." Then he looked at me and said, "Ray thinks all of that will matter. It won't. I will knock him out the first time I land hard."

That was Haqgler's mistake, thinking he could take Leonard right out. So, he gave into bigger gloves, a bigger ring and a cut from 15 to 12 rounds. His complacent attitude, along with a complacent fight style which allowed Leonard to dominate and win the first six rounds, cost Hagler the fight.

I spent time with Hagler in 2013 at the IBHOF Induction Weekend. The loss to Leonard still irks him.

Those biggers gloves were 10oz Reyes. One of Ray's cousins in the P-Islands just confirmed it to. And I also looked at the negotiations. They are in Boxrec. Holla!

-Randy G."


I don't doubt that Fury will have some target practice. But I also think Ustinov is just going to go for it early. He took the fight on short notice and I would not be surprised if he comes out guns a blazing trying for the KO early thinking he has no intention for this fight to long anyway.

Back in October, I made the drive to Atlantic City for the Hopkins-Murat card. I got their in time for the weigh in Friday which was open to the public. On the undercard, Deontay Wilder was fighting Nicolai Firtha. I am from northeast Ohio and so is Firtha. I had actually seen him fight locally some. So I went over and introduced myself to him after the proceedings. First thing, he was surprised I had seen him fight live before and been to some of the small shows he fought on here in Ohio. Firtha then started opening up more about the fight and his strategy. He told me that he knew not many were giving him a chance but that he was going for it and going for it early. He specifically told me he would jump on Wilder when the opening bell rang. Before I finished the conversation, the last thing he said to me was there is no way this fight gets passed the 4th round. Well he did go for it, did jump on Wilder when the opening bell rang and made things exciting for the length of the fight. And was stopped in the 4th round by Wilder.

I would guess that Ustinov has a very similar approach to this fight with Fury as Firtha did that night in Atlantic City.

"I would say that the only advantage Leonard has over me is hand speed," Hagler admitted. "But he's not a better boxer, he won't be able to hurt me, he won't be able to take my shots and he certainly isn't going to outpunch me or outfight me on the inside. There is nothing Ray can do to win this fight."

When we had gone off the air, Hagler told me, "Ray is asking for all kinds of concessions to make the fight."

"Like what?" I asked.

"Like bigger gloves. Like a bigger ring. Like 12 rounds instead of 15." Then he looked at me and said, "Ray thinks all of that will matter. It won't. I will knock him out the first time I land hard."

While he refused to admit it, I have a feeling he would have started a lot faster in round one--and stayed at that pace--had he known what the final outcome would be by fighting at a slower, more complacent and relaxed pace.

Leonard won the negotiations and with them, won the fight.

A little know fact is that prior to the fight even being arranged, Ray Leonard had sparred with 14oz gloves. When he watched the Hagler v. Mugabi fight, Ray Leonard thought that Hagler would have trouble with speed so he decided that if he should get 12oz gloves he could be even faster. In his opinion, Hagler was being outboxed by a slugger and looked very sluggish."

Ustinov might cause a problem as a last minute replacement. He is slow but has huge right hand. I think Tyson Fury can be undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and even though he is rusty should KO Ustinov. This is not an easy last minute replacement so Fury has to be commended for this selection. Fury could of picked out a bum and no one would have complained. Ustinov might present some big problems before he gets beaten to a pulp. I wonder if Fury will sing after the fight? Haye and Chisora should be ashamed for pulling out against Fury.

"I was reading some Hagler history and I came across an article stating that SRL would only fight in 12 oz gloves and that is what they did.

That article is FOS! They fought in 10oz that was negotiated from 8oz. Matter of fact, I've personally laid eyes on the gloves.



What the authors of fibbing articles don't give a rat's @$$ about is that the boxers are given the gloves after the fights for keepsakes. Matter of fact -- now that I think of it -- the darn fighters pay for the gloves. So they are yours.



You have to holla at the Commish on this one. Every commission is different. But so it won't be any obvious cheating going on, the corrupted commissions charge you for everything that they provide. Only the prelim fighters -- without pull -- get free syet. And the gloves are taken back.

With the Fury-Chisora fight off because of Chisora breakng a hand in sparring, the Bryant Jennings-Mike Perez fight becomes the heavyweight matchup of the month.

If Mike Perez returns to his pre-Mago Abdusalamov form, this fight can go either way. If he fights the way he did against Carlos Takam earlier this year, Jennings will win.

The question on Saturday night will be "Which Mike Perez will show up?"

I will say this, credit to Fury for taking on a dangerous opponent. I am really surprised that Ustinov.

My guess would be Ustinov will be dangerous early. He is a big heavyweight and can punch some. Who knows what kind of shape he is in as well? He may just throw caution to the wind early, especially knowing Fury has been hurt several times and dropped before. This could be wildly exciting early. I wonder is there is any hope that AWE may reconsider and air this card now that Ustinov has been chosen as the opponent.

If I were a betting man (and generally I am not), I would consider laying a few bucks on Ustinov to win at 6-1 or so and if offered may lay a few bucks on him to KO Fury in rounds 1-3. This is not saying I'd pick him but it'd be a small risk for a potential nice payout.

The Commish:

Ustinov is a Bealrus version of Primo Carnera, the lumbering heavyweight champion from the pre-Joe Louis era. He is close to 6'8" and weighs in right around 300 pounds (he has fought at over that weight). His punches are painfully slow and on his feet he moves like a sloth.

Fury will be way too quick for him in both the foot speed and hand speed departments. Unless Fury comes into the fight suffering both physical and mental breakdowns, he cannot and will not lose to Ustinov.

I'm not sure what it says about Kubrat Pulev (Wlad Klitschko's next opponent and the man who handed Ustinov his only career loss in September 2012), but it took him 11 rounds to stop "The Sloth." Until the end came in the 11th, Pulev had won all previous 10 rounds on one card, nine on another and eight on another, hitting Ustinov with solid shots along the way.

Its a quaint older little place. The best way to describe it as a small Italian diner. I was with my wife and she wanted to go stop by Presque (not the Casino but the state park a few exits from the casino). Anyway, driving down to the park you pass the restaurant. I actually went passed it and turned around insisting that we stop in for lunch. We were there on a Friday afternoon and were one of two sets of customers in the place. I was able to walk around and take in all that was on display.

What I loved about it was the walls are covered with boxing pictures, posters, etc and they were all primarily from the 70's and early 80's. It was kind of like stepping back in time and taking a tour of the sport from the 70's and early 80's. Actually when you first walk in, there is a huge 80's poster of Ray Mancini that really catches the eye. As a boxing fan, I absolutely loved it and the food was not too bad either.

"Skibbz - It is an savvy comparison - but GGG is a considerably more fluid two-handed combination puncher than Tzsu, though his tactics were similar. Tzsyu was stiffer in the upper body and didn’t mix it up as easily. Can you imagine a Ricky Hatton at any point taking apart a guy with the two-sided arsenal of a GGG? Tzsu was very good. GGG is in the running for great."

You're right Mort GGG uses a greater variety of punches. I think he looked stiff but that was mainly because he wanted to always be poised to attack. I don't think Hatton could have put up with a prime Tszyu, and I certainly can't imagine him taking apart someone of GGG's calibre. Although Hatton was a good banger he had a lot of holes in his game.. and a bottomless pit of a stomach.


@Oubobcat I don't think the hype surrounding the two fighters is the same unless you're taking the American context. In Europe, Tszyu was widely recognised as being the top amateur boxer in any division from around the age of 16/17. He destroyed Vernon Forrest in the '91 World Am Champs and went on to becoming a pro soon after. (I will post the fight at the end of this post for you to enjoy.)

Whilst he was fighting in and out of Australia, he was still fairly raw but his potential was there. I believe in his first showing in the states he was against a tough mexican/american banger who's name has slipped my mind. The mexican had good skills and was a seasoned vet who had never heard of Kostya, and it was much the same for Tszyu of him. When they got going the mexican quickly realised this wasn't a hype job and that Tszyu could fight, and that he had serious dynamite in his hands. I believe it went the distance, and turned into a real war of attrition, but after that display I believe people started to take note in America of the Thunder from Down Under.

GGG on the other hand, although having spectacular amateur credentials and a host of medals, I never heard of him being spoken about in the same way. In Europe we knew he could stop anyone if he got his leather on them but it was said in the pro's there will be slicksters and cute fighters who will dance rings around him. Not to say that opinion holds true now, just at the time in a lot of boxing circles in Europe that was the talk that surrounded a young Gennady.

Here's the video of Kostya and Forrest as promised, worth a watch it's very entertaining.

When I first saw Golovkin, I was instantly reminded of Tszyu. They hype surrounding Tszyu too in 1997 was very similar to the hype Golovkin is receiving today.

Much like Tszyu lived up to the a lot of the hype eventually, I think Golovkin can as well. But Golovkin is also far from perfect and there are holes that need to be patched up.

Similar to Vince Phillips in 1997, people are overlooking Geale in my opinion. Geale is a very skilled fighter. He is very technically sound, knows how to create angles and throw at the right distance and is solid of the defensive end. Geale also has very quick hands and quicker feet than Golovkin. Mark my words, he is going to give Golovkin a fight on Saturday.

Whenever one good fighter faces another good fighter, anything can happen. Much like Tszyu against Phillips, this is a pretty big step up in competition for Golovkin. I would go as far to say that Geale is the 2nd best Middleweight in the world at the moment behind Golovkin. Geale is a very live underdog and 6-1 odds at the moment are ridiculous in my opinion.

One other thing, Golovkin could lose here but he could end up becoming a better fighter in the end. We also saw that with Tszyu after he lost to Phillips and go on to a Hall of Fame career.
