Nice little card. Good fights. Teddy is still screaming and saying whatever he wants which is very entertaining, telling the co host Stallone is just a movie boxer and only the first few Rocky movies were worthwhile.



N'dam stuck to his game-plan and Curtis was stuck in mud the whole night. It looked like Stevens had a broken right foot or something, what was up with his right foot?



N'dam is a nifty boxer who I had beating Quillin despite the knockdowns he suffered. He gets another shot so I hope he works on his mistakes and gets a pair of boots with a better grip.

"and here I am. I will MOD this fine establishment for the next two weeks, and I feel privileged. All the knowledge that gets kicked around this website ,in the dynamic that it does, is special. As far as my judging, I am kinda' stealthy but this has my complete attention. Good luck to all! Bite down and let em' loose! "

Wow! So it is like my Tip Mamoy loves to spit: "El que quiera pescado que se moje el culo" -- "He who wants some fish should get his butt wet." Hehehe! Just lookout for Jaws or Moby Dick. You might just get your arse chewed up or swallowed.

I thought that I'd throw that in there because I'm sitting on Leyte Bay, Philippines, watching the time roll away. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsTnHJ3g328. Holla!

N'Dam N'Jikam seems to be a pretty determined and fluent boxer with a good set of whiskas and also decent power.



Stevens is determined with a good set of whiskas and also decent power.



I was surprised by how hesitant Quillin fought Rosado; after seeing how he fought N'Dam N'Jikam.



I, too, am not sure about Steven's championship round stamina - or his championship level confidence after 3G disrespectfully bludgeoned and stopped him.



Beatings like that always psychologically affect guys like Stevens and I would venture to say that has something to do with his personality within the abovementioned interviews.



The guy (justifiably) displays hallmarks of traits that suggest he is embarrassed and concerned, and those traits often sit as uncomfortably with a fighter's public persona - as both they and the Stevens V 3G fight is now in the public domain.



The determination for a prizefighter is often closely linked to his self worth and persona(s).



As is - albeit conversely - beatings/losses and both the manner in which they are introduced and how much they contradict or conflict with that which was said prior to the fight by those wearing them.



The former constantly advises you to push on regardless of the obstacles and the latter sends an alarm - sometimes in the form of a private fear - that you may have chosen the wrong pursuit and over focused on your ego or dominant fighting-persona.



Neither make for good bedfellows and a relaxed disposition or lifestyle, and sometimes they all conspire so that the fighter is simply persisting in the sport because it is his perceived identity.



At that point fear of quitting and publicly losing becomes the driving reason to train and fight; rather than the belief you are a champion, this is your sport, and someone out there that is temporarily minding your strap is in line for a hiding.



I'll leave it for the readers to work out who of N'Dam N'Jikam and Curtis Stevens this might best apply to.

I am just hoping for an entertaining fight.

Though you are correct, Stevens can get ahead of himself. He put a grave on the street for GGG then proceeded to get beat to a pulp

"This is a fight I am very much looking forward to watching. It really could go either way and that's what makes it so interesting. And as we saw with Stevens last fight, he possesses that eraser so even if the fight is not going his way could quickly change things in an instant.

Stevens can be out boxed and out hustled. Taureno Johnson did that to him his last time out and came within seconds of beating him. Jesse Brinkley did that to Stevens with ease some years ago. If Stevens doesn't knock his opponent out, its tough for him to win fighting the way he does. And that is always looking for the knockout and unable to avoid being hit if his opponent lets their hands go.

N'Dam was dropped six times by Quillin yet still went the distance. In the rounds he wasn't dropped had some success. We know he has heart but how about that chin. Stevens hits much harder than Quillin so if N'Dam gets hit clean who knows how well he'll be able to take Stevens punch.

If N'Dam can handle Stevens punch or avoid getting tagged flush, he can win and win going away on the cards. However, that's much easier said than done. Stevens will be dangerous from the moment the opening bell rings until the final bell to end the fight. He could be dominated and then end things in an instant. Its a very interesting fight and the winner is in line to face the IBF Champion sometime next year."

Things are about to get very interesting. Will Canelo actually go for the May and September dates taken in the past by Mayweather? Or if push comes to shove, will they back away from that demand?

I really don't know how to read this right now from Oscar and Canelo.

I think it depends on the opponent to be honest. If Cotto, then they push that fight back to June to hold it at Madison Square Garden. No way they go head to head with Mayweather.

But say its not Cotto, things could get interesting. I for one think HBO is still very upset about how Showtime decided to put Canelo on the same September date in the same city as the scheduled HBO PPV for Martinez-Chavez. Remember this initially was to be competing PPV's but then Showtime moved Canelo to regular Showtime after Victor Ortiz was upset by Josesito Lopez. If the Canelo-Cotto fight does not happen, I see HBO signing off on another Joshua Clottey like opponent and put the fight on regular HBO to compete directly with Mayweather (Oscar and Canelo have major pull on this as well).

Things are about to get very interesting in this sport outside the ring.

This is an excellent fight for Dirrell at this stage of his career. Brinson is no push over, has good skills and is very athletic. And has tremendous heart and determination. He will come to win. He has exposed prospects in the past but lost when he has stepped up to the "B" level fighters.

Unlike Dirrell's last opponent, Brinson will fight back. Dirrell's skills, at least the old Dirrell, should be too much for Brinson. But if Dirrell has lost it a little, well Brinson could give him a good test. I don't think Brinson wins either way (well you never know in this sport) but its a good barometer fight for Dirrell. If he dominates and gets Brinson out of there in impressive fashion, I would say he is back and ready for bigger things immediately. If he struggles in this fight though, he may not be the same and may be a sign that he can't compete at a high level anymore.

I think Oscar was fine with this going to purse bid but Haymon is really pushing him to make a deal. Haymon does not want to risk another outside bid from Roc Nation and getting backed into a corner again. My guess would be that Oscar (after massive pressure form Haymon) and King went to the WBC asking for an extension because they are close. Just a guess...

Wow! OMFG! Whadup wif da Yanky Panky -- I mean Hanky Panky -- with purse bid.

I personally see a power struggle going between tsAH, and the old guard of tricking & dkng, Da Don King. He ain't trying to let some shadow spook him outta pug crooking and robbing.

And yes indeed! They both ain't feeling how J-Zay's Roc Nation is dropping legit moolah on bids. With the actuality of the reality, tsAH and Da Don King ain't trying to holla at who they consider "snotty-nosed kids."

"Reports say the purse bid has been cancelled/postponed again. Haymon's fault? Don King's fault? We're digging around, trying to get the reason.

Hmmmm



tsAH's other fighter ,Danny Garcia's purse bidded got postponed again also.10 day extension. Does Danny have a newborn to blame before tsAH makes him dump his belt and vacate?



Last two boxers with tsAH that went to purse bid didn't work out too well. Sean Porter and Gary Russell Jr.



Roc Nation might be bidding on the bout and taking it of King's and GBP grip. Can one of tsAH's fighters actually give him orders or do they only take directions?



When Hopkins threw down the PR flag in PR, Don King gave him the best advice. King said,RUN!!!!!!!!

Nice pieces on Dan Goosen by Thomas Hauser and David Avila.

I didn't know the man, but I never heard anyone say a bad word about him -- very unusual in an industry overrun with hard-boiled characters.

Bob Arum promoted some of Goosen's fighters and for a time Dan was a Top Rank executive. That relationship didn't last long. Arum can be abrasive and Dan Goosen wasn't the sort to take any guff, no matter how handsomely Arum was paying him.

The Goosen clan was an interesting bunch and Dan was clearly the patriarch, although he was only one of the siblings. For a time Joe Goosen was the most prominent trainer/cornerman in California. That was before Freddie Roach became so big. Another brother, Greg Goosen, was a catcher who had a cup of coffee with the NY Mets.

Anyone who goes into managing boxers can expect to someday have his heart ripped out. Dan Goosen promoted Michael Nunn beginning with Nunn's first pro fight. He brought Nunn's amateur trainer into the fold and treated the two of them like members of his family. The last I heard of Michael Nunn, he was serving 20-plus years for drug trafficking at a federal penitentiary in Texas. Nunn's sad saga had to hurt Dan immensely.

If memory serves, the actor Gene Hackman purchased a piece of Nunn. Hackman appeared with the Goosens at several of Nunn's pre-fight press conferences. There were other Hollywood players who took an interest in the Goosens' boxing stable. In a sense, it was like the old (Depression era) days when the Hollywood crowd turned up for the weekly fights at the cozy indoor venue called Hollywood Legion Stadium. It didn't take a mega-fight to rope in a famous Hollywood personality.

My condolences to all the Goosens.

Hehehehehehe! Watch that mixing water with water. There are some mixes that will give you mad energy. A little alkaline water mixed with some coconut water and water from a Mountain spring mixed with a few drops of lemon juice will have you leaping over bridges in small bound. Hahaha!

But start off with tiny, tiny bridges.

N'Dam Beats Stevens in IBF Middleweight Eliminator

Curtis Stevens was a step behind, sometimes two and three, against Hassan N'Dam in the main event of an ESPN2 card which unfolded in Santa Monica, CA on Wednesday night. It looked like the ring was a 22 footer at times, as Stevens plodded after N'Dam, and was unable to cut off the ring against the mover. Stevens, used to doing the knocking down, himself hit the deck in round eight, and the conclusion was foregone after 12 rounds. By scores of 116-111, 116-111, 119-108, N'Dam had his hand raised, and he earned a shot at the IBF middleweight...
