"I agree its a good fight .... And Brandon has to think about his life after boxing considering that his days as an upper tier attraction are probably more finite than they were a year ago.

In my humble opinion the only thing lacking is credibility.

Would Cotto throw his name and into the hat with a fomer junior welter that hasnt proven he can compete with the best at 140, 147, or heaven forbid.....154 ?

This fight doesnt do a thing for Cotto. And the ensuing massacre wont reflect well on the boxing community.

Cotto ... The middleweight champ can probably get away with ducking GGG a while longer.... BUT to duck GGG and fight Rios??? I don't think so."


I think your last sentence may be the one thing - if any - that the fight does for Cotto.

Keep him away from 3G and Madison Square Garden.

Michael Spinks fought Dewight Quawi Muhammed just 2 months after his 24 year old wife was tragically killed in an automobile accident in 1984.
Spinks daughter asked him 2 weeks before the fight if her mommy was going to show up at the fight.
Its said that Spinks broke down into a sobbing heaving mess as the realization of what he had lost hit him like a ton a bricks.

Still ....Michael pulled it together and kept his win streak alive to win a 15 round decision over a very tough and competitive challenger.

Quillen would do well to make note of Spinks example ... There will be plenty of time to vaction after the fight and 1.4 million reasons to enjoy it.

Word is that Quilin's camp asked for an extension because he just became a father in late August and he did not want to leave his wife to go to the signing.

Grandpa Rob used to beat the syet outta on-dat-syet muscles who thought that they wanted to box and could beat boksingeros with dat hyped-up more-than-martial-arts-movies syet. Dat syet gives no one kiss-arse abilities.

I've knocked so many giant roid monster da double fudge out that I've lost count. Those giants are for prevention, not protection. This is why you don't see the secret services maddog killas of the politicians looking like them. Those giants are just a Money May sideshow thing. Dude is an artmaster at steal publicity and intrigue. Holla!

They are like James "Lights Out" Toney. They don't have Mandingo muscular genetics, but "Kakwa" big belly ones. This ethnic tribe of black Africans -- the late Idi Amin Dada was one -- are belly thick, not belly flat and muscular like Mandingo tribemen and some of the other ethnic tribes with that built.



How well you look after taking roids have a lot to do with your diet and genetics. I know a whole lot of steroid-taking AmerKano footballers built just like Money Money's monster squad of beefy security guards. Primarily, a lot of the Asiatic Samoans are like that way. And somo wrestlers are that way. Holla!

Another angle could be Roc Nation trying to muscle tsAH out of they way. Pretty sure Jay Z hates tsAH -since he ripped off his wife Beyonc . Will thAH try and boycott any fight with Roc Nation? Could be a power struggle behind the scenes.

I agree. He already got some favorable matchmaking ,it's time for a real challenge, and a career high pay day makes it a no brainer. Does thAH want to keep the belt out of TopRank's hands so badly that he will block the fight?

This fight boils down to one simple thing. If Kovalev lets his hands go he wins, if he doesn't he loses.

"Yep, fair call RG.

But (in my defence, and this is not directed at you) when I initially took on the job as "The Mod" I openly said and/or indicated here on the forum that I had concerns about my schedule.

I was not in a position to dedicate every single day of the 1/2 month I was at the helm; but for the most part I could catch/read up the following day.

As far as the last day was concerned, I could not do that for obvious reasons and as it was the Monday (AU time) that closed out the 1/2 month I had back to back meetings.

Still, rather than say no - or spit the dummy - or throw the bike in the bush; I soldiered on and instead made an announcement that the final day would be Sunday; to give everyone advance notice.

This was - I hope - an example of the professionalism that DDV mentions above.

If I was advised at the start that the timeframes were as I know know them to be; I probably wouldn't have had a run with the task.

As it is I am glad I did as I got to develop a better appreciation for all the posters and the website.

In any regard, I am sure that BrownSugar is proven and good enough at being the Mod and participating/reading the forums such that any posts I may have overlooked in the final 1/2 day I may have missed (which is balanced out by the day early I started) can be considered in his tenure."



I'm not changing a thing Storm.... Your choices were solid. The winners you picked were consistent and powered through the second week with the same dynamic zest they had displayed in the previous week. You may have made an honest mistake about the time frame but you have nothing to apologize for. As far as I'm concerned those winners are official.

Yup! I'm eyeing old boxing flicks. That old classic -- with (Rev.) "Big" George in it is on TV in the P-Islands along with a ton of other boksing movies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6dWOAWqRo. Holla!

stormcentre:

It's still a good fight.

Good also, for Rios to cash out; as I am sure (he is thinking) his days are now numbered.

Cotto would also love it as he knows he wouldn't have to worry about losing and/or trying to find Brandon.

Thanks Shadow,

It’s all good.

I am not pi$$ed off.

Just stating my case, and also that sometimes the answers to the dilemas – both real and imagined ☺ – can be already there and accessible.

I am sure that Dino and EM will make sure that every worthwhile poster here gets a chance to be paid some prize money and recognized.

"I think it's important to just roll with the punches sometimes.

I mean, I have dropped some pretty large (and hopefully quite informative) posts here; such (for example) as my previous (1) Performance Enhancing Drugs, (2) Andre Ward and his Legal Issues, and (3) Kostya Tszyu Vs 3G Accomplishments posts

None of them even registered in the competition - as last prizes.

Happy to have anyone tell me why and whose posts were better.

I am still smiling and not complaining.

You have. You're The Man Storm.

I especially loved your thread on the secret to GGG's power. I think I went on record to say when I last charted that I didn't expect to, mainly because of your contributions.

Mayweather's Reading Ability Belies How Smart He Is

Fighting, whether it's boxing, wrestling or mixed martial arts, is the toughest sport known to man. Yes, all the other major sports require some form of skill, strength, toughness, stamina, speed, mental concentration and athleticism, but not to the degree that fighting or one-on- one combat does. You show me a great fighter in any combat sport and I'll show you someone who is very smart and who is also quick to analyze and process things pertaining to situations that change in milliseconds. No two fighters in the world fight or move alike....

One of the World’s Best Boxing Bars is in Munich

A few blocks down from Munich’s Hauptbahnhof, the central train station, wedged between two strip clubs in the city’s Turkish district, sits one of the world’s best boxing bars. The Sport-Café Schiller is a must-stop for any fan of the sweet science traveling through Bavaria. Most bars that set out to have a boxing theme rarely get it right. Some try too hard in the beginning and end up being a trendy gastro-pub with a few boxing photos and posters on the wall. Others try to create neighborhood bar atmosphere, which results in a set-up...
