Is this for real? I need to pinch myself and read it again.



For anyone asking if Kovalev is a worthy challenge ....just follow the exodus of Superman from Showtime when Duva and HBO tried to set up the fight.



Stevenson defected from HBO like a Cuban expatriate and hasn't looked back since.



Bhop has my utmost respect if this fight is made. I hope the younger prospects follow his example.

I'm picking Kovalev to win... This aint gonna be no repeat of a green behind the ears Pavlik getting awestruck and humiliated.



This is what they call....the changing of the guard.

I'd love to see Korobov vs Quillin. He'd be fighting a real middleweight for the first time since he beat N'Dam N'Jikam for the title. In a competitive fight where there is no guarantee he would win.

Dirrell demolished a human meatball who had been KO'd in 3 of his last five losses.
He was a football player with virtually no amateur background who thought learning how to box would be fun. He's the type of opponent that novices fight in their first couple of fights.

I don't blame Dirrell for taking a tuneup due to the rust. But the way he celebrated after the fight you would have thought he just defeated Karl Froch at Wembly....

Well he has to start somewhere ....and at least he's back in the ring.
Honestly I thought his highly enthusiastic post fight interview was more entertaining than the fight.
Welcome back Dirrell. Please pick a live body next time.

Desperate attempt at getting attention. Not even remotely funny. I have zero interest in seeing Briggs unless he wants to announce fights or apply for a referee position.

I have seen that documentary Sug. It is called "Venus and Serena" I think. I may start a tennis topic in the random section to talk more about this for any tennis fans we may have out there.

"Hehehehe! You have said that more times than I've said that "Da Manny is going to knock dat muthasucka out." Hehehe!



If John David Jackson is crazy enough to let his charge dance with the "Alien," so be evaporated. Holla!"




You may be right RG. In fact if you went all the way back to the beginning of recorded TSS history (12'10) you will see the Roast predicting Pascal would end Bernard's career. B-Hop has fooled me most of the time since then but Kovalev is the man for the job. He has the strength. He has the power. All he has to do is let his hands go. Bernard will fall, the end of a Hall of Fame career. Unless....

I don't know anything about the guy Kovalev is fighting tomorrow, Blake Caparello. Never heard of him, never seen him before. No reason to announce the next fight before tomorrow's fight is finished. Sometimes the applecart can be upset. Remember the look on Evander's face as he stood ringside that night in Toyko and watched his big fight go down the drain?

"I was able to get my hands on Briggs script from rehearsals. Here it is.

Line 1. "Everywhere you go I go Champ" repeat 3 Xs

Line 2. "Everything you do I do" repeat 5 Xs

Line 3. "Everything you eat I eat" repeat 3 Xs

*Action* Flail, knock food off table, flail, fall down.

Line 4. "You threw water on my head?" repeat 4 Xs

Briggs needs to hire a better writer. Call me Shannon. We can do better than this."

No set up! People walk up on the champs -- even Money May -- all the time. I believe Briggs's walk up was legit. And then the playing along came about.

No doubt that Shannon could CRUSHED those play-acting security stiffs of Doc Wlad. Holla!

Maybe not outright staged but obviously pre-arranged. Eating food off his plate??



Symbolic and hilarious at the same time.



There are obvious, dead give-aways here...



For one, any random schmuck doesn't just get to the heavyweight champ of the world -- on multiple occasions, no less! -- unless it has been allowed.



Secondly, the security guy grabbing Briggs couldn't beat up Briggs on his worst day.



I bet Briggs reimbursed the restaurant. "Marketing expense," it will say in his accounting files.



I wouldn't be surprised if they're cool and just messing about.



It has that "South Beach Tow" reality show feel to it.



Which is long overdue anyway. Boxing, arguably, has the craziest characters in sports so reality TV should be a no-brainer.



Put it this way, Pacquiao-Marquez V would shock me more than Banks-Briggs.

Dang! Did you guys see Teddy Atlas on ESPN FNF. He and I are on the train about 3g. Three g is aight! But he ain't an ATG yet. And haven't fought the pugs to become one. Holla!

Briggs is in great shape and will sell the fight. If they dragged old corrie Sanders off the golf course and he knocked out WK then Briggs has a chance too.

Years ago I visited my trainer Milton L who trained Briggs at the time and still does.I met up with him at Briggs house and was invited in. Briggs was on the second level loft and wanted to fight me because I didn't introduce myself. After the hostilities and yelling at me he was very nice. He is a genuine nice funny guy. He has power and if he connects he can win.

"What makes you so certain RG?"

For the same reason that 3g's trainer Abel Sanchez refused to let his charge spar with SOG a couple years ago.The 3g dude was on a tear sparring with every Cali fighter from welterweight to light heavyweight, except for SOG. My crazy srse almost got some of 3g. But he didn't want to work with a sneaky, stealth-punching southpaw on the day in question. I'll spar with anybody and his attorney at the drop of a hat.

OOPS! I musta' fo'got! I'll spar with ev'ybodee and dey momma except trainer Anne "The Mermaid" Wolfe. I ain't trying to take that arse whuppin,' or what she says she will do to me after the whuppin.' If it weren't for The Mermaid I'd be Charlie Z-like in reverse. Showing up to gyms for the test and conquest. Hehehe!

Man, many in the pug circuit know what time it is with 3g. He's good as heck. But certain types will cause him a major wreck. Team 3g and HBO are like Bo. Bo knows perfect promotions and optical illusions. OPs are everywhere. Holla!

Murat hit Hopkins a lot more than expected. Steve smoger did a terrible job that night . If kovalev lands anywhere like Murat did the Hopkins loses . If Hopkins wins Philly should have a parade . John David got knocked out by Hopkins , he might have a plan. I see an even fight . I also see Hopkins using every psychological trick before the fight. He is going to say some nasty things .

LOL no way. The only one who's going to be "flatton" is you from the Zzz of seeing Hopkins lull yet another boogeyman into his low-punch output trance.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for history. And I don't think it's an upgrade. And LOL. Cute.

Jessie Vargas Makes First World Title Defense

It was a horrible year for the economy in 2008 with hedge funds and other get rich quick schemes nearly taking down America's financial apparatus. At nearly the same time a kid from Las Vegas named Jessie Vargas emerged from the financial rubble and was making his Southern California professional debut against a 30-year-old from Nebraska. From the moment the first bell rang you could see something special. It was obvious that Vargas (24-0, 9 Kos) would win a world title and now he's making his first defense of the WBA junior welterweight...

Can Golovkin Be a Superstar?

Gennady Golovkin is the best pound-for-pound puncher in boxing and he's officially too strong for his own good. From a power and precision standpoint, he layers body blows underneath head shots and disguises both with feints and shifty footwork like a well-engineered cyborg. When he finishes guys off, he grins to his corner and shrugs, as if to say, “I guess that’s all.” Is this guy for real? Distilled from a Mike Tyson or Wilfredo Gomez vintage, he's now 30-0 with 17 straight stoppage victories, but we're still waiting for the...

Is Sergey Kovalev the next GGG?

The boxing world was all aglow this week in the aftermath of WBA middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin’s three-round demolition of Daniel Geale. The undefeated crowd-pleaser received some of his biggest props from some of boxing’s biggest names. Calling the action from ringside, HBO’s Max Kellerman compared Golovkin to Joe Louis on Saturday night. Sportscaster and president of the Las Vegas Boxing Hall of Fame Rich Marotta said via Twitter he thought Golovkin was the “hardest punching” middleweight ever. Thomas Hauser opined...

Sergey Kovalev Will Have More Than Blake Caparello On His Mind August 2nd

When WBO light heavyweight title hold Sergey Kovalev 24-0-1 (22) defends his title this Saturday night in Atlantic City against Blake Caparello 19-0-1 (6), he'll be fighting two opponents at the same time. In the ring he'll be looking to take Caparello out as quickly as possible, and in the eyes of boxing fans, his performance will be compared to middleweight Gennady Golovkin's signature win last weekend, when he stopped challenger Daniel Geale in the third round. Kovalev, like Golovkin, has an impressive knockout record and can really...
