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."

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? :)

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.

The video Radam posted is a great companion piece to the article by Bernard Fernandez.

I too have a Wilt Chamberlain "brush with fame" anecdote.

There was a brief time in my life when I drove a taxi in Las Vegas. One night it was slow and I decided to play the airport and see if I could cop one more fare before my shift was over. The late plane from LA -- the last plane of the day, coming or going -- disgorged its passengers shortly after midnight.

It looked like I was going to get shut out when, lo and behold, Wilt Chamberlain ambled out of the airport. No luggage; just him.

The company I worked for, Checker Cab, had two sizes of cabs. That night I was stuck with a small one. I forget the model, but the taxicab authority should have never approved a car this small.

I rushed to the passenger side to push the front seat back. "Don't bother," said Wilt, "I'll be fine." I swear that his head and his knees touched the roof, but yet he didn't seem uncomfortable at all. Over the years, like a magician's helper, he had mastered the art of squeezing his body into tight places.

We made small talk on the way to his destination, the Tropicana. He was very personable. As we pulled into the hotel he said, "aw shucks, I forgot to bring my wallet. Wait here. I'll be right back."

I'd heard that routine before. The previous week some prick had run out on me and I had a flashback that it was going to happen again. Then I realized the absurdity of that thought. Where's this guy gonna hide? Unlike Elvis, there were no Wilt Chamberlain impersonators.

He went inside the hotel, returned in a few minutes and, with a sheepish grin, gave me my money. And yes, I got a decent tip.

If all of your experience with air travel is post-9/11, you don't know how easy it used to be to fly somewhere on the spur of the moment. There were no security checks en route to the gate and no need to provide identification, not that Wilt would need any to prove who he was.

And a man who was famous could easily walk into a Las Vegas hotel with empty pockets and withdraw some money from the cashiers cage with only his signature.

Years later, I learned that Wilt was an insomniac. This came from Doug Krikorian, the longtime southern California sportswriter who was tight with Wilt when he was the Lakers beat writer for the LA Herald-Examiner. Krikorian said he spent many nights shooting the breeze with Chamberlain into the wee hours of the morning in quiet corners of empty hotel coffee shops. Many nights Wilt couldn't fall asleep until it was almost dawn.

So what apparently happened was that Wilt was bored, went for a drive, and then, on the spur-of-the-moment, decided he would catch that one-hour flight to Vegas and hang out there until the next morning. Forgetting his wallet was no deal.

I will let somebody else in da know holla. Many of us posters/readers discussed brain regeneration on "Random Topics" awhile back. In additional, the "Father of modern medicine" is quite clear on saying "let (proper) foods be your medicine." There is a lot of things going on that the typical everyday man would have no clues until years down the road.

FYI, and I hope that some of these people holla to this Universe, the U.S. Veteran Administration has studies going on with ex-boxers and other athlete with mild-to-severe brain damage. I know that you have hook ups everywhere, so you should have no problem in verifying or slam dumping what I've posted above. Holla!

This info begs the question of whether Hanna Gabriel will return to the ring anytime soon. She's been inactive for 17 months since suffering her first loss at the hands of an 18-year old boxer from the Dominican Republic. She's still rated highly --#3 in her weight class according to the leading organization for female boxers.

I'm been told that Ms. Gabriel has a strong following in Costa Rica.

Commish, I'm sure the answer is no since there aren't enough guinea pigs to constitute a useful sample, but I'm wondering if any studies have been done on female boxers?

I've heard it said that women are more likely to suffer long-term damage as a result of punches received in the stomach, but for all I know this is an old wives tale.

"Radam, you're doing great work as the resident TSS archeologist.



Back around 1979, Joe Frazier and the Knockouts played the lounge at Caesars Palace. This would have been in conjunction with one of Larry Holmes' fights.



I don't remember his singing being that bad. It was actually a good show that had people dancing in the aisles. Of course, Smokin' Joe was backed by a tight little band with some good horn players. Looking back, the band stole the spotlight from Joe's vocals. That was a good thing."




I saw and heard him in the latter part of his live. I can't remember him, GOAT Ali, Larry Holmes, Ernie Terrell, the late Kenny Norton or Evander Holyfield, Roy Jones, Money May, Winky Wright or Antonio Tarver ever being able to carry a note. There song could acoustic a thousand wolves howl.



Now Big Money Oscar Dela Hoya and Da Manny can cut some tunes. Money May is so terrible with singing and rapping that I won't put his song in this Universe no way, no how! Hehehe! Holla!

Even if Dirrell is the same as when he was at his best a few years back before sitting out with neurological problems,brain injures, or just an excuse to duck Ward; he is still a very hard fighter to watch. Dirrell ruined the Froch fight by moving and never trading. Dirrell stunk out the Abraham fight. Dirrell made the Stevens fight boring. Those 3 fighters all said the same thing, that Dirrell didn't come to fight.



I like when boxers use movement and boxing but there is a time in a fight where a fighter needs to trade and fight. Dirrell is very reluctant to do that.



Compare that with GGG. GGG punished Stevens badly before he quit and had enough. GGG has knocked out his foes in highlight fashion. GGG cuts the ring off better then Froch,Stevens and Abraham so no way Dirrell has a chance against GGG. Dirrell needs to knock out a bum or two provided by Al Haymon before he can be served up as an opponent for GGG.



I wonder if OUBOBCAT thought his thread would turn out like this?

Radam G:

"During my seven years at the New York State Athletic Commission, we did several studies on the long-term effects of head punches and body shots taken by fighters.

Not surprisingly, long-term head shots--head trauma--leave residual scarring on the brain, which quite often shows up in later years in rthe form of dementia pugilistica, more commonly know as being "punch drunk." The condition never gets better. If anything, it worsens. Sometimes it takes decades, sometimes it happens fast. It also doesn't happen to every fighter.

Former heavyweight contender Jerry Quarry, who was known to have a solid chin, passed away in 1999 of Dementia Pugilistica at the age of 53. As much as 22 years earlier--in 1977, when he was just 31--you could already hear Quarry's speech pattern changing for the worse.

After beating Lorenzo Zanon that year, Quarry knew it was over and hung up his gloves. Unfortunately, they didn't stay nailed to the wall. He came back in 1983. He needed the money. Despite winning both bouts, Quarry couldn't secure the big-money bout he craved--against Larry Holmes--and he retired again.

After working at different jobs over the next nine years, Quarry launched yet another comeback, this one in 1992. He was 46 and was only a shell of his former self. At the time, I was commissioner in New York and tried to talk Jerry out of the fight. He sounded terrible, slurring words to the point I didn't understand him.

When he told me he intended to go ahead with a fight in Aurora, Colorado, that he had planned to win this and a few more comeback fights, then go after the likes of Mike Tyson, Riddick Bowe and Evander Holyfield, I knew he was desperate and not thinking straight.

I called officials in Colorado and tried to get them to deny a boxer's license to Quarry. They refused. They said he had passed his physical and was in remarkable shape for a man his age. The physical he passed was a stethoscope on his chest!

Quarry lost that fight by decision to a man with a 3-4-1 record named Ron Crammer. Quarry got hit with seemingly every punch Crammer threw, and took it like Jerry Quarry. After the fight. He retired again.

Deep dementia quickly began to set in. During the last several years of his life, his family took care of him. They fed him. They dressed him. They assisted him in every way. He could see, but saw nothing. He could hear, but heard nothing. On

January 3, 1999, Jerry Quarry passed away. Seven years later, his kid brother, Mike, a light heavyweight contender who had faced Bob Foster for the light heavyweight title and was knocked cold by the explosive-hitting Foster, also died of dementia pugilistica. He was 55.

On the other side of the coin is George Chuvalo. The former heavyweight contender who amassed a career record of 73-18-2 with 62 KO's and faced such talent as Muhammad Ali,George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Floyd Patterson, Jerry Quarry and Cleveland Williams, will turn 77 in a few weeks. Despite the longevity of his career and the monstrous punchers he faced, Chuvalo sounds--even today--more like a college professor than he does an ex-fighter who absorbed some hellacious beatings.

I point these men out, as it is head trauma which is known to do extreme damage over the course of time, but not to all fighters, as seen by the condition of Chuvalo, who had so many fights against such tough opposition but remains unfazed by the punches well into his 70's.

Our study looked at hundreds of amateur and pro fighters who had at least 20 fights. I threw myself into the study, as I had 39 amateur fights and one professional outing. Head scans and body scans, along with blood work and circulatory testing was done. As for myself, I received a clean bill of health.

After all the results were in, any damage that was found was found through EEG's and MRI's of the head. Very little damage was shown to ex-fighter's bodies. The liver and kidney damage which did show up was determined to be to those exs-fighters who abused drugs and alcohol throughout their lives.

Body shots basically hurt and only do their damage at the moment. Any cell damage done to the liver, kidney and spleen--and other internaal organs--is reparable. Those injured cells regenerate. Brain cells do not.

If only they did.

And all this was in answer to a two-sentence question about body punches by Spitbucket. Look how I rambled on.

Hmm. Maybe there is brain damage there, after all!

What were we talking about?

-Randy G.

{Hey, Commish! How many pugs had collapsed lungs on your watch? How many had damaged voice boxes? BTW umpteen studies show that brain cells do regenerate and injuried brains repair themselves and/or make new path ways. You are apparently focusing on the many focused, damaged brains that don't. There is no one brain that fixes all. And, as always, it all begins and ends with diet. Plus blown-up myths are everywhere.

Several fighters have quit the game on the flash after suffering internal body damages. Any of you pugs out there reading this -- and haven't recovered from boxing kidney, liver, heart-chambers and busted blood vessels -- STEP FORWARD! Don't be shy. Everything is cool here. Holla!}

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...
