Thanks guys. Off the top of my head I believe I am the sixth leading poster of all time in TSS recorded history. RG, B-Sug, Ameyseng, Deepwater, the Shadow are 1-5. Number 6 all time in a group like this is pretty cool. I couldn't do it without you guys and all the great TSS writers and the fighters past and present who inspire us to come out writing. Love to all who bring it here everyday, week, or month. You don't have to be the most active to be great. Come one, come all!

"Nice article! Bang the drums.

I do believe what he says, especially regarding Kovalev's willingness to fight whenever, wherever, but I have a hard time taking promoters at face value when they have an agenda to push.

I don't know, it's almost like an outlet publishing Serena Williams quotes from her Proactiv commercial.

"I had pimples," Williams said in a commercial appearance. "Now they're gone!"

Haha!

Now the pie is too small for award and Golovkin. I'd like to know if they are just guessing or if they've actually sent any inquiries Goossen's way.

I'd take it with a grain of salt.

All in all, since 3K's guy is so adamant about Kovalev not giving a damn what weight, where and how he fights, why not offer a catch weight bout to Ward?

170? 171? He just fought Rodriguez at 170.

Make a public offer, make Ward duck you or step up to the plate. I don't think Kovalev loses any value after losing that fight either."


Don't be hating on my Girl Serena, I've never even seen her on a Proactive commercial. I always see the one with Adam Levine and I always want to choke slam him while watching it. If Serena trained as a fighter she would beat 3G. I don't know if she could make 160 but if she could he would get TKOed in 5.

Hahaha I like the comparison. Don't you see how the movie always ends though? The human soul has that touch of something that the robot can't counter. But yes GGG is a p4p beast and is loose in the jungle now and ready to cross paths with lions.

I look forward to all of Mr. Hauser's articles, even if he is a lawyer. Granted triple G is the real deal. But he's also being processed by HBO who provide undistinguishable opposition that are the building blocks for a corporate myth. g-Granted the guy is gifted, knows where to plant his feet, trains in big bear, has lived through trajedy (no small fete), and cuts off the ring like a virtuoso...but ray robinson fought jake la motta, gene fulllmer randy turpin and carmen basilio.....Now triple g's had alot of fights, and there's no one like of that caliber on his resume. he seems gifted but robotic, ----robots will be running the future. so i guess he's right for the times....

I'd like to take you up on that bet my brother.

I say Ward beats him, 11-1, someone thing like that. I haven't seen Ward really lose a round since Bika -- and the judge called that a shut out!

"I'd love to see Kovalev-Ward. Its a great matchup of styles and between two of the top pound for pound fighters in the sport.

My gut feeling says that Kovalev and his people are absolutely willing to test themselves against anyone anywhere. Kovalev believes in his abilities and his team also believes in those abilities. They want that signature fight badly to happen whether its against Stevenson, Hopkins, Ward, etc.

I think the ball on this one is entirely in Ward's court. And personally, I don't think Ward has any immediate interest in Kovalev. Assuming he does fight again, he will come out saying that he needs somewhat of a tune up fight before stepping his game up. So at least for the rest of this year and probably first half of next year, A Kovalev fight is not happening unfortunately.

I strongly feel that if they do ever face each other regardless of the weight that Kovalev will knock Ward out. Ward has speed but Kovalev has ferocious power and underrated skills. Ward may have success early but mark my words that Kovalev would eventually get to him."

The tissue that builds up on the brain (from repeated smacks) doesn't repair itself, but as we get older (I believe) that the neurological pathways only rejuvenate when stimulated.

Not like a few hours studying Kirchoff's law or something like that anyway."


I personally have been knowing GC near my whole life. And you are right. He plays chess. Does crossword puzzles. Play cards. He is sharp with electronics. He's well read. He's quick witted. He eats a lot cold-watered fish, nut, seeds. He's musical. As you have hinted, he's brainy. And all the pugs who I know, and who are not punchy are brainy. Holla!

This fight and result fell almost completely under the radar last week. But what a shocking result it was and this should spell the end of Estrada. The 2004 US Olympic boxing class has had some ups, namely Andre Ward though who knows when/if he is fighting again, and a lot of downs. This is just the latest in the line of tough times for that class.

Personally, I don't think Gennady Golovkin has improved that much. In fact I think, if the comparison was to his amateur days I would say that he was more skilled there, but in the pros he's had a real chance to (further) develop and (practically) use his power.



He's clearly not a light middleweight (regardless of what he weighs in as) - you could see that against Geale."




Thanks for your input, Storm! Can you elaborate on this, please? :)



Interesting if you're into satire, maybe. Ha!

stormcentre:

Hmmm interesting reads.

My take.

Dirrell; I think he fought a reasonably good fight against Froch and deserved to get a decision. He is a very competent boxer, particularly when he is bedazzling and controlling his opponent.

However, all the moving. complex and intricate parts of his arsenary though sometimes makes for an unnecessarily complicated bout; as he tries to do too much and with it all efficiency and effectiveness can go out the window.

3G; I think should catch and hurt him sometime - particularly if Abraham can and did. I think Dirrell would start to freeze and look for ways out if he was in against Gennady, felt the power and noticed Golovkin couldn't care if Dirrell landed.

"You might want to remember the name Cam F. Awesome.



Awesome copped the gold medal on July 21 in the 201-plus lb. division at the Pan-American festival in Mexico City, the prelude to the Pan-American Games. His victory wasn't unexpected. Last year, sportswriter Kevin Iole identified Awesome as the frontrunner to represent the U.S. in the super-heavyweight division at the 2016 Olympics. Awesome may not care to wait that long. By 2016, he will be 28 years old.



If you're thinking that Awesome isn't his birth name, you are correct. When he won the 2009 National Golden Gloves tournament, defeating the less-experienced Bryant Jennings, he was known as Lenroy Thompson. Back then he fought out of Uniondale, Long Island. Nowadays, he lives and trains in a suburb of Kansas City.



Before he changed his name, he was known for blowing off pre-fight drug tests. His failure to appear caused him to be suspended from several tournaments, bumping up the alternate.



A vegan, Awesome reportedly has a great personality. The heavyweight division needs more than a good American boxer; it needs a good American boxer who gives good sound bites.



About that middle initial: Awesome says use your imagination."




I see you have a good sense of humor Arnek.

It will take a great deal of imagination to ever visualize this guy making an impact in professional boxing.

I'd box him for free if I could locate a couple of knee braces.(and I won't look anything like Sergio)



From what I can see from RG's vid, I've seen better fights on the bootleg version of "Bum Fights" and "Streetfights 614, part 2".

Thanks for the comic relief.

Top Rank has stacked up almost all the Featherweight belt holders. They have Donaire, Gradovich, Walters along with Lomachenko who all hold some kind if belt. There are a lot of good potential matchups here.

The question is when will Top Rank start matching some of these guys against each other. They just did a show in Macau where Donaire, Gradovich and Walters all fought in separate fights. Eventually, they need to fight one another one would think.

If I had to guess, Lomachenko is going to get matched with Gradovich at some point. Its a marketable fight and Gradovich is someone whose style should suit Lomachenko very well. Gradovich is an aggressive volume punchers who comes straight forward and brings the fight to his opponents. He can best be described as gritty and workmanlike. He is not a big puncher and a great counterpuncher like Lomachenko could use Gradovich's aggressiveness against him.

It might not be this year but maybe sometime early next year in a title unification fight. I would venture to say they each may end up fighting on a card in separate bouts, maybe a PPV undercard or HBO boxing after dark card, to set up a fight early next year.

In the meantime, Lomachenko will probably get a nice showcase fight after two tough bouts. I wouldn't expect anything special but will be facing someone in his fourth pro bout that many fighters in a similar position wouldn't be facing until way down the line. Fernando Montiel, Wilfredo Vazquez Jr., Jonathan Barros...that level of opponent. A fighter Lomachenko should handle and should look good doing so.

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...

Egis Klimas isn't one of those guys known beyond the hardcore fight followers, but every month, he's getting his profile upped. 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). Three champions, that's not to be sniffed at. He also advises and steers other fighters, not as well known, but Klimas is busier these days hashing out bigger and bigger bouts with his name clients. He told TSS, during a Saturday press session to hype Kovalev's...

Celina “The Sweetheart” Salazar Wins in Costa Rica

San Antonio’s Celina “The Sweetheart” Salazar defeated Mexico City’s Maria Elena Villalobos by majority decision after six rounds of a bantamweight fight on Saturday night. Salazar (6-1-2) tried to outmuscle the staunch Villalobos (13-11-1) and changed tactics to pull out the victory at Gimnasio Fite Nite in Costa Rica. The match was not televised. “She was very strong with her stance,” said Salazar, 25, who was fighting her third consecutive credible veteran opponent in Villalobos, after Ana Julaton and Melinda Cooper. “I...

There is a lot more separating the heavyweight division from the middleweight division than some 40 pounds. It's called talent.
