"Not true! Five fighters -- two trained by Top Notch Trainer "Ready" Freddie "No Joke Coach" Roach and two trained by Rob "Grandpa" Garcia -- have come up dirty in the last two years. Of the pugs training at the Mayweather Gym, 12 -- 5 trained by Pop Joys May, 4 by Uncle Roger and 3 by Eddie Mustafa Muhammad -- have come up dirty in the last two years. The dirtiest pug in history is Mickey Bey with a ratio of 30 to 1.



And people on that syet are not all over the place. They are in the gyms where it is a culture of believing in dat syet. And they mainly believe in it for eye candy bodies. The jive does not help one's fight game.



In Cali -- SoCal and NoCal -- there are umpteen gyms where not a single fighter has been caught on that syet. The pugs at the Plex Gym in Texas aren't being caugh with that jive. In Arizona, fighters being catch with that syet is nearly non existence.



Talking heads and pug haters are exaggerating the usage of dat syet in boksing circles. Once a newbie, immature fighter get whipped, he shytcans dat syet, because he realizes that peddlers of it just took his hard-earned money.



Just as U.S. mainland society is making marijuana legal, boksing should let usage of roids and PEDs became legal. That would stop the lies of dat syet making incredible fighting machines that can severely cripple and/or kill pugs.



In the words of Money May and Uncle Roger, it is "hard work, dedication" and "skills dat pays da bills," not dat syet.



Da syet is dandy for giving you a body that is eye candy. But for helping you with talent and skills, dat syet is far from handy. Holla!"




There are dozens of fighters RG in the last decade who have tested positive in Roaches gym alone, Some dating back before Pacquioa even joined Freddy ... It doesn't necessarily mean Roach provided any PEDs He says he was never involved.. ...but its obvious that many guys have tried to use PEDs to get an edge.... Its part of the culture.

LOL that was freakin' hilarious! Speaking of dandy eye candy, you think Dandy Landy is on it?! Have you seen his body lately?!? RIPPED! No body fat. Muscles protruding finely. Vascularity even.

I don't suspect him but since you mention going for the eye candy look.

"What is the TSS reader's pseudonym of Felix of Brooklin? Holla!"

LOL that's an inside joke. Last Friday on the show, Bernie hollered in and started speaking esoterically about Marco Huck and guys he should fight.

Once Randy booted him off, he called back into the show and altered his voice ever so slightly, talking about how he was "Felix."

The screen with the callers even said "Felix, Brooklin," yet the phone number was the same as earlier!

Once he got let on the line, he was back in trademark Bernie style just trolling away. It was hilarious.

"I caught the Storm announcement.

It's a half a month at a time. Starts on the first of the month and concludes at 12:01 am EST on the 16th. The next one runs from 12:01 am the 16th until the first of the next month (and concludes at 12:01 am on the 1st).

And while we knew it would be fairly time consuming, we felt we had enough professionalism in the forum to make the model work. Our bigger concern was the quality of the scoring. So we'll ask the question here: Does anyone feel there has been a miscarriage of justice on determining who was ultimately recognized at periods end, you know, with the exception of El Dude?"

"I completely agree.

Suge, unless you get knocked unconscious, a stoppage loss in and of itself isn't as damaging mentally.

Especially against someone like Big George or GGG. You get caught or overwhelmed, it happens. Easy to rationalize without ruining the necessary self delusions.

(Roy Jones was an exception; it was bad because it ruined Roy's entire self-image, a self image built around 35+ years of constant reinforcement as well as a steadfast belief that he was the GOAT/demigod (seriously).)

The guys whose psyches are ruined are the ones who get outclassed, humiliated and disarmed -- basically conquered mentally, physically and spiritually.

And as SRD points out, the most susceptible ones are the undefeated ones because they have not yet had their bubbles burst.

They have yet to discover that they've been lied to their whole lives.

The most dangerous ones are the borderline evil scientists who will rape your minds with no regard for your future or mental health: Floyd Mayweather. Andre Ward. Bernard Hopkins. Guillermo Rigondeaux.

These guys are evil. There's no other word for it, really. Just evil. (Especially Ward's in-ring persona is that of a homicidal psychopath; just look at his eyes in this face-off thing he did with Chad Dawson. He kinda looks like mob hitman Richard Kuklinski.)

They want to rob their opponents of their will, their manhood and all self belief.

And they often succeed.

Which is especially crucial to a guy like the ultra fit Santa Cruz, a undefeated guy with awesome firepower in the form of volume punching.

He looks at Rigo and his opponents, thinks to himself, "these putos aren't punching. I'll overwhelm him with my 100+ punches per round."

But what will happen once he realizes he won't even be able to get 50 shots off, let alone 40 or 30? What will happen to him mentally once he realizes he will get nailed with a 2x4 every time he opens up, once he realizes he's been disarmed?

"To disarm somebody, it's so deep that people don't even get it. People don't even understand it," Paulie Malignaggi said in an interview earlier this year. "I mean, to disarm somebody is more difficult to do though, especially when they have all that offensive firepower. You disarm them; you take the bullets out of all their guns, they got nothing left, bro. They're shooting blanks."

That feeling sucks.

Top Rank single-handedly ruined Nonito Donaire - who was essentially undefeated - by letting him in with Willie Rigo Ortiz.

They should have known better.

Rigo kept telling anyone who would listen that he would take his soul. That power wasn't going to be enough to defeat someone with damn near 500 fights.

Yet, in the buildup, everyone tried to focus on a) Rigo's alleged bad chin and b) Donaire's explosive power.

Look into the dude's eyes for Christ's sake! No expression. He's like a mercenary. He just wants your soul, your will.

It's the metaphorical equivalent of those African warriors who would eat someone's heart and gain their foe's strength.

(I'm shocked promoters haven't learned this by now. Win or lose, Main Events is leading their golden lamb Sergey Kovalev to slaughter. You don't escape Hopkins unscathed, without paying some sort of price.)

Another example. Like Jim Lampley said during one PPV telecast, fighting Floyd Mayweather is a cold dose of reality. Once Ricky Hatton discovered this, Hatton caught a full blown depression, turning to the bottle and the coke in the process.

Malignaggi explains, "Disarming somebody takes talent, it takes technique, and is such a big weapon to have to know how to disarm and disengage a guy's offense. It's like one of those guys that sniffs the bombs; the bomb-sniffing dogs and they have the people who cut the wires and they detonate the bombs. They take the explosiveness out of them.

"That's why Mayweather is so good. On top of all the great things he does, he disarms you. While you're trying to take the guy's head off, you're going to be disarmed. And what happens when you're disarmed? You're up **** creek without a paddle, bro."

Hatton said he was frustrated that no matter what he was trying, nothing worked. Even what he thought was his advantages turned out to favor Floyd.

“I was disappointed because I wasn’t there just to be involved," he said. "They were fights I thought I could win. When I didn’t it was very hard for me to come to terms with."

Executioner Hopkins has a long list of bodies on his conscience. During the fight, it doesn't look like the whooping is that severe. But the physical beating is nothing compared to the long-lasting effects of the defeat.

After he schools a guy, you can see it in their eyes how hard it is for them to cope with what just happened. They never again recover.

Kelly Pavlik turned to the bottle. Jermaine Taylor got it so bad he had to shoot his cousin so he wasn't the only one shot in the family. Antonio Tarver. The list goes on.

It's the same with the aforementioned guys. Look at their opponents' expressions after the fights. They stand dejected, reduced to mere vestiges of what they were only an hour prior.

All that considered, even if Santa Cruz is sturdy and sound mentally, you don't want to risk ruining the guy forever.

He may not knock you out. He may not hit you as much as the other guys. But best believe, Guillermo Rigondeaux is one of the few guys in boxing you do not want to play with."


Great stuff and so true. This is going to be one of our topics tonight on the show. I will lead you right into it and you'll take it from there.

I still don't get the upcoming marriage to Frank Warren, and I sure as heck don't get why the negotiations with Roc Nation

fell apart, unless Gary Hyde was asking figures which just couldn't be reached.

It is indeed interesting that Chris Avalos is scheduled to be next for Rigo, and that Top Rank has promotional rights to Avalos. It will not surprise me to see this go to a purse bid with Top Rank's Carl Moretti delivering the winning bid for Marsa Bob--a bid which will bring Toby, er, Rigo, back into the Top Rank fold.

Ah, the business of boxing.

It can make ya' looney even without getting hit!

"I understand where you are coming from, but getting taken to school via unanimous decision can damage the psyche of undefeated young fighter. It doesn't have to be a George Foreman type physical beat down. Rigo took Donaire's fighting spirit in my opinion and he will never be the same. I think he would stop Santa Cruz via TKO because his style is made to order for him. Santa Cruz is a fighter and is supposed to want the fight, but his promotional outfit and management team know better. Santa Cruz is a community college student and Rigo is a Ivy League professor. The youngster would ruin his permanent transcript by failing professor Rigo's course entitled Cuban Boxing 101."

"Santa Cruz wants the fight. He's ready and eager to willing to glove up with one of the greatest boxers ever to join the pro ranks.

I think Rigo out points him and could possibly win by too.

However I don't believe Cruz would be traumatized by the loss.

Getting out boxed isn't the same as being brutalized by a George Foreman style beatdowm.

I think it would be a very entertaining fight."

You're right He hasn't beat anybody up violently recently but he's a tricky one! Mayweather is one of craftiest out there who doesn't need to beat you up to get the W. He will anticipate Maidanas punches this time around IMO, and it might be a bit more of a dull fight. I hope Maidana makes it a more competitive fight but I don't know how much I buy that he only trained 5 weeks for the last bout. If that is somehow true then I can see him having big confidence boost and comfort but regardless Maidana is as game as they get he will fight tooth and nail(literally) to land that bomb that will burst the Money bank. J'Leons cookie crumble was just the reminder of something that Floyd (I assume) knows more than most...

Yes that's right - but diuretics also mask other PEDs and PES, and are commonly used in conjunction with them these days.

I was not impressed with Taylor in his latest bout with Karim Mayfield. Like deep mentioned, this guy stays within distance but that's as aggressive as he gets. It's easy for him to say he picked out what Maidana did to be successful in his bout with AB (almost as easy as it is for me to type about it) and can do something similar but that aint nothin' but a bluff. Maidana is an erratic,big cojones out-law type willing to cross paths with lions and no disrespect to Taylor but I just don't see him being cut from the same cloth. IMO, the guys that will trouble AB will be the ones that put him in that "flight or fight" mode. He seemed to fight stunned and in shock when he fought Maidana and MM was able to capitalize on that with the already naturally low out-put, selective puncher AB. I see Broner taking this fight 9-3 and hopefully we see him in with some better competition.
