Good point there with Proska. He was one of the better guys 3G beat up. No doubt, he was a solid & tough opponent.

"Geale got dropped like a cornered rat trying to desperately claw his way out of a tight spot."



One of your best ever, and great analogy.



Thinking of Golovkin, I'm thinking of a pretty near perfect mixture of balance, technique and mental attributes. He has a way of executing technically exemplary punches with a boost by almost budo-like tension at the moment he hits. A man able to beat him must be a man of great ring generalship - a Hopkins, for instance - that still possesses the reflexes, strength and overall skill to give him fits and, last but not least, power to earn his respect. The only man out there that fits the description is Ward. It could be the first real superfight since Hagler-Leonard, minus the media hype.



On another note, I was more impressed with how Golovkin handled Proksa than Geale. Proksa wasn't/isn't the biggest of names, but very talented, very tough, had toyed with solid veteran Sebastian Sylvester and basically made him quit, and most of all: awkward. I predicted Golovkin would be too much for Proksa, but couldn't believe the way he dominated him from the start. Having followed Proksa for a while, that fight was all I needed in order to know Golovkin was so much more than just the real thing. He's the real beast.

My last post was mainly directed at Shadow.



3G is very good and extremely strong. Going into the Geale fight he had a big psychological & physical advantage, but hey none of it was illegal.



I can't see Ward enjoying all the talk about 3G for too long once he comes back. But he will have to make sure he has a warm up first.



Also I won't be surprised to hear Floyd announce a Pacquiao fight next or the one after that.

Can't elaborate in detail as our ISP mistakenly cancelled our account despite us actually over paying them. Seriously. And they say Oz is the land of opportunity. So, I only have a phone.



3Gs application of both offence & defense was more seamless as an amateur IMO. Same with Tszyu.



What happens sometimes when good amateurs turn pro & realize that both their power has been perhaps stunted or undervalued with amateur points system style, and that their style has developed in a manner that is more reliant upon crafty techniques than under appreciated power in the amateur 4 ranks.



The result can often be a fighter that substitutes the above complexities for the love of punching.



When that happens usually you get a guy that's a hitter that also takes someone q quite good & a mix of other issues for him to be beat. For these guys the majority of the pro boxing world is technically behind them anyway so none notices if they drop a few moves & recall them later.



When a fighter opts not to substitute as above described, you get guys like Floyd & Rio.



As far as 3G clearly not being a light middleweight is concerned. ..... Some things you can just tell.

He probably spent days on it and with it's failure he has been troubled or absent ever since.

"After the Lara- Canelo stinkfest, or should I say sleepfest, (I have yet to finish it, what does that say in itself?) I am looking forward to this weekend of boxing. Rios is always exciting and Kovalev is a destroyer.

Good weekend to make up on prior disappointments, NOT including GGG but including Perez vs Cunningham"


Perez vs Jennings?

Maybe historians, but with social media running just about everyone's conversations and thoughts these days, the Floyd and Pac fight never happening will never go away.

Exactly, and the hype would have been MAD following that Cotto destruction as Pac was at the height of his powers and Floyd still prime and at his.



how disappointing.

Remember cotto wore the everlast mx gloves and did some damage to little Floyd . Therefore those gloves must not have padding. Most all time greats would fight with no gloves at a taxi stand. Floyd might get paid the most but history will look back and say whatever. Next.

Matthews and I bumped into each other a few months ago while shopping in Syosset. We talked for a few minutes about our careers and families then had to run to get to appointments. We both found it funny when, the next evening, my wife and I ran into Matthews and his wife, Leslie, and their kids, at a restaurant.

Wally and I were once very close friends, before my days as commissioner began. From the start, Wally told me, "Being Commissioner is a thankless job. Some people will love things you do, some will hate it. Over the seven years I held office, Wally helped make it thankless.

We battled bigtime through the last half of my term. After my term ended, Wally and I patched things up. If anything, his penchant for sensationalism--more than the truth--his gotten him in trouble.

Deep, let's do that coffee...lunch...dinner. I'd like to hear about your participation in the Long Island Fight for Charity. Did you work with Tony F.?

There is a sign on the wall at Gleason's gym, posting an invitation from the poet Virgil: "Now, whoever has courage, and a strong and collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves and put up his hands."

Thanks again for the congrats from the TSS vets and a couple of newcomers too. The Commish goes way back and has more great stories than anybody but he is still a newbie around here. Can't help but notice the Commish is closing in on 1,000. He will probably blow by me by the end of 2014!

Yep, he declined a rematch an career high payday with DLH

Cotto rematch would have been intriguing following that competitive and exciting fight.

And the fact he wont fight Pac yet remains with these paydays is a testament to the stupidity that fans have.

"Reminds me of sugar ray vs Donny Lelonde. Not. Floyd will retire and no one will blink an eye just like last time he retired. If Floyd fought Ggg at 154 then he deserves all accolades . He won't even fight PAC . In the next decade or two Floyd will be remembered as the guy who avoided a super fight . It's a blight on boxing but the new guys will overlap Floyd's avoidance of a super fight."

Golovkin Leaves No Question To Who The Alpha Fighter At 160 Is

Let’s be honest, he looked terrific…though his opponent was very limited but did, however, really try and do everything in his power to compete and make it hard for him to score his 27th career stoppage in 30 professional fights. Yes, I'm talking about WBA middleweight title holder Gennady Golovkin's third round stoppage over challenger Daniel Geale 30-3 (16) this past weekend at Madison Square Garden. If Geale really is one of the top three middleweights in the world, the gulf between Golovkin and the other two is wider than the length...

Klimas Dubious That Ward-Kovalev Could Be Made

I’m getting the sense that maybe Andre Ward is bored. His crew has been making noise recently, indicating that he’s in shape, ready to rock. Most of his fighting of late has been of the court-room/arbitration variety, as he attempts to wriggle free from his promotional deal with Dan Goossen. That wriggling inclination has made it so the 30-year-old Ward has been appearing in the ring quite infrequently, when paired with the shoulder injury which sidetracked him from a Kelly Pavlik fight early last year. He last gloved up on November...

The manager, who came to the US from Lithuania in 1989, helms Sergey Kovalev, and also Vasyl Lomachenko, and Evgeny Gradovich (19-0; from Russia; age 27).
