This is a fight definitely worth watching again.

Yes, I believe that's a tooth which is heading in a bloody blurr out of the ring. Betcha' it hit some guy on his crisp, new white shirt, making it look like he was hit with a shotgun blast!

Very entertaining fight. I'm glad I gave up an afternoon of NFL watching and instead watched a few boxing videos, including this one and the war involving Orlando Salido v Thailand's Terdsak Kokietgym.

Both fights gave me more action and competitiveness than I got from the NFL Giants v Houston.

Salido-Kokietgym was so thrilling that I saved it to my favorites videos on youtube.com...gonna' watch it again on Monday before I head in for my show.

Gotta' tell The Shadow and Gerry Cooney to watch it!

WOW!



If I had been ringside, I would have thrown things into the ring--$10 bills!



I have no idea how much these guys were paid, but I do know this.



It wasn't enough!

"Pac does everything better...... This is a fight,... not a PX90 Exhibition. Pac will work his punches in between all the aerobic bouncing. The lad Algieri is going back to school for another semester. PAC via UD all day long."

I will make myself accessible most of the day on November 23 to take your applause and congratulations on the victory of the Long Islander over future Hall-of-Famer Manny Pacquiao.

I will then tell you what I saw all this time which led me to pick Chris Algieri over Da' Manny.

I have a vintage bottle of champagne I intend to pop open that night after Michael Buffer reads the cards and says, ""...all to the winner, and STILL undefeated..."

"I much rather watch these types of fighters who will make good fights any day over any of the big high profile fights we have been fed the last few years.

By the way, for those of us in the states bein sports has provided some very high quality fights for us. Much much better than anything Showtime has offered up so far this year. They are actually providing the type of cards HBO Boxing After Dark use to provide on a regular basis. I wish the premium networks would get it and start showcasing more of these type of competitive fights between two fighters whose styles mesh well. Its not rocket science and often times these matchups can be easily made in the lower weight classes for a fraction of say what they are shelling out for Garcia-Salka.

I say either HBO or Showtime pony up a few bucks and make a card featuring Gonzalez-Estrada. I would even pay good money to see that on PPV and can guarantee a lot of other fight fans would do the same. It certainly would be much more worth it than say Mayweather-Maidana II."


The major US networks seem to extort fans, knowing that the majority will watch whatever fights they put on. At least that's the way it looks from across the pond.

Meanwhile the great British fights keep coming; Eubank Jr vs Billy Joe Saunders next!

"Well there was absolutely no damage to the grille( no missing teeth )other than a fat lip..... and Floyd did a little hop-skip at the end of the punch (in the 3rd)to get his legs back underneath.
To his credit ...
And while Sitting in a room full a people watching the replay.
Floyd admitted he was hurt with that shot.
Chino almost got him.... If only for one fleeting moment.
And for that he should be proud.
Chino should avoid letting tsAH putting him in with a killer like Thurman.
Just match him with similar brawlers like they did with Salido so we can keep him around to make entertaining fights.
Chino vs Rios next???"


I know that it is hard to accept, but his top lip and his gum were swollen from the knocking out of a tooth. Get a big screen TV, or your iPad or iTablet, triple slow it down, stop it, put a circle around the white object blasted outta his grill, and ask your tablet or your pad what is it. She will tell you a tooth. Or even better, call Money May or some forensic dentists and/or doctor who were on the scene at ringside. Even better holla at the person who pick it up off the canvas.

OMG! Hulkquez has even had hair pugs knocked out in dat squared jungle. Tons of pugs have lost their bowels. And God Rest the souls of those who lost their lives. And we are haggling over optical illusion-jiving Money May losing a tooth.

Maybe he wanted to rain one of his mug-hole choppers on the canvas like his rains $5 and $10 on big-booty, shakin'-dat-thang hos. Hehe! Some hos have even reported that Money May often rains fake moolah.

PLEASE! And it ain't jack for boxers to occasionally lose a tooth or two. It has happened to GOAT Ali, all the Sugarmen, all the joltin' Jacks and Joes, all the "Two Ton" and "Lights out" Tonies and all the fighting Floyds.

In my Money May's rap, "it comes with the territory."

Not only did Money May lose a tooth, he got put in stitches to close cuts inside his mug hole. He has gotten bad inside-the-mouth cuts in four of five of his last fights. And it should not be surprising, the older you get, the looser and easier your skin get, especially around the eyes, inside the grill and inside the beak.

You guys can squash if the judges also thought Money May won that round in question by hollering at the score sheets. The judge who socred it 115 to 112 thought that Money lost five rounds.

If it were not for a point taken off, the fight would been scored 115-112 twice and 114 to 113, another close fight. Holla!

Absolutely right Oubob- these are the guys that deserve multi-millions for fighting.

Salido has hit the deck more times than I can count but he has great resilience--like JMM--WOW

Chino in a championship tournament with Rios, Provodnikov, Salido, Alvarado, Thurman and Bradley.

Hmm here's a thought, Floyd probably earned more in one second during his last fight than Terdsak earned after 11 rounds. Just some food for thought.

"I respect your take brother but there's no way in hell Chino won round 1. Zero.

Though he clearly hurt Floyd, you can't award him Round 3 based on that because it clearly came after the bell so it doesn't count.

The effect from the punch carried over, though, as Maidana had his best round in the 4th, as you point out.

Bayless looked like he thought he was still ref'ing BKB, breaking the guys up at once.

But no, Maidana definitely didn't win 1 and 3.

The first round may have been Floyd's best.

If there are 5 seconds more in the 3rd, Chino earns the round for sure!"



When I first watched the fight I gave Chino 2 total rounds


Today, I give him round 1, Floyd did nothing, stabbed a few shots, this is professional boxing, effective punching out weighs pitty pat shots. ask Radam

secondly , That right hand landed right at the bell , not after, and it was a hurting shot, giving him the round. Professional scoring.

And third Bayless jumped in after Chino landed that clean left hook they were not even tied up , it was crazy..

I still have Floyd winning the fight clearly though.

Wow ... A two man battle royal... Koki landing left crosses and Salido relentless on the inside.
Not a stylistic statement... But a mano o' mano two fisted brawl reaching its inevitable conclusion.
Put Salido down once.... You'd better be able to do it all night cause Salido never takes a coffee break. Way to bring home the bacon to those 8 kids.
Where's compu-box when it matters?

la pelea beautiful. I agree with Deep I would pay both, especially the Thai fighter fat bags for this one. Smashing job by both i'll be watching this again very soon. 10/10!

@Deep, Lomachenko got schooled by Salido hahahaha I love to be reminded by that fact.

Some interesting opinions posted here- very well reasoned for the most part.

I'm still on the side of it being a very dominant Pac performance though. Not sold at all on Algieri's skills in the ring. He lucked his way into this fight via a home town decision, and he'll need a lot of luck to get back out of it in one piece.

If only the judges had been fair to Provodnikov, we could have had an incredible Siberian Rocky vs Pacman match-up. One day soon I hope.

Well since he kept accusing PAC of using a side meth when Ariza was the trainer maybe hypocritical Floyd can use some special nutrition. I see Floyd is getting old and vulnerable . It's best for him to retire and enjoy his habits.

"Just rewatched the first four rounds and gave Chino round 1, 3 for landing that hard right hand staggering and hurting Floyd and round 4 for beating him up to the body and the head, taking the entire round.

The most interesting thing halfway through round 4 Chino lands a left hook on Floyd, cleanly and Bayless jumps in and immediately grabs and separates them. How is this possible?

I kid you not.

Watch for yourself. Floyd was still hurt from the right ending round 3 and Bayless was there protecting him.


Unreal"


I don't find this too shocking. That it the way of Sin City. Don't just protect the home fighter, save his arse. The instructions of the referee is to fight fair, not for him to be fair.

At least, "I'm firm, but fair" but has faded to black. How many controversal fights were he in that were so obviously suspicious? Holla!

"Floyd got away with clinching, holding and running. Bayless was hypnotized to break on cue when the fight was signed.

Floyd crying about getting bit was sad to watch. Even Holyfield didn't cry when his ear was bitten off, he just jumped up and down and tried to fight back.

Floyd hiring Ariza after firing Garcia and Ellerbee is odd to say the least. Oh well I hope Floyd retires soon and let's the new blood shine."


The fact he said his left hand was numb the last 4 rounds and couldn't use it is ridiculous in itself.

He has no humility whatsoever.

Yes he is just hiring Ariza to start drama, nothing more.

Wow. What a fight!!



What great boxing and fighting. This type of fight deserves 32 million dollar purses.



Salido is a crafty SOB, fighting in Mexico he knew he could get away with it.



How impressive is Lomenchenko for fighting this guy in his second fight, taking the dirty tricks without retaliating and almost stopping him in the 12 the round.



I can't wait until Lomenchenko vs Salido 2 in the next year or two.

Well this fight is now the leader in the clubhouse for fight of the year. What a fight, what a war with plenty of ebbs and flows.

The first six rounds were really a knock down drag em out affair. There were some wild exchanges where each was hurt at times and each also tasted the canvas.

Salido really poured it on from about round seven or so and layed a massive beating on the Thai fighter who was getting exhausted. And then Salido eventually scored the highlight reel knockout early in the 11th.

If you havn't seen this fight yet, I would highly recommend at some point setting aside about 45 minutes to do so. You won't be sorry.

I will say this about Salido. He may be the smartest dirtiest fighter in the sport. He was racking the Thai fighter with low blows in this fight including scoring a knockdown with one. Salido though would only throw the low shots when the referee was out of view of what he was doing. No doubt he knew exactly what he was doing.

Radam G:

Sorry! But C -Al is not a true, blue mover. He is full of histrionics, jittery stepping, bouncing around and fluttering his arms and gloves up and down almost like he is having a seizure. You know in boksing there is moving and styling and profiling and picture taking too much. He puts that to shame.

C-Al is easy to find and hit. He half-@$$ punches. When he does move, it is straight back on a buckwild stance and then leaning to the side that he is moving to. Talking about telegraphing moves? OH MY GOODNESS!

And his punching accuracy and power are twins "Shame" and "Lame." And for the arse thrashing that he is going to get, they will be to blame.

I'm not the only one that can see all this. I think a lot of you guys just have "High Hopes" for C-Al. And couldn't tell the truth if it bit you in the arse. That is very dumb, but I guess patriotic, to make a mountain outta a molehill of you Kano guys' homeboy. Da Manny/3m is going to play with him like a toy. C-Al has a lot of toy soldiers in his convoy.

In Macau, that mountain will be nothing but a mirage. C-Al is going to have a very sad, disappointed entourage. Holla!

I think this is a better fight than most feel it will be and Algieri puts up a better than expected effort but Pacquiao still comes away with a unanimous decision win.

Algieri is very skilled and still very underrated. That dominant win against Emmanuel Taylor sure looks a lot better now after Taylor's efforts against Mayfield and Broner this year.

I think Pacquiao is going to stand in front of Algieiri more in this fight and not use his legs as much. He will go in not fearing Algieiri's power and want to get a KO himself. Essentially, I see Pacquiao the stalker to Algieiri the mover. Algieiri has his spots moving and landed some combinations but Pacquiao counters very effectively with hard shots. Pacquiao's power and speed are the difference and as the fight progresses slowly Algieri's output decreases as he starts to fear more and more what's going to come back from Pacquiao. I see the first half of the fight being fairly close (maybe 58-56 to Pac) and then Pac taking 5 of the last 6 rounds to win a clear cut decision in what turns out to be a surprisingly more entertaining fight than expected.

The Dargan fight was surprisingly very entertaining. His opponent, Perez, had lost every time he stepped up and been KO'd a few times. Perez appeared to be there to just showcase Dargan's talents on national tv but really came to win and almost pulled the upset. Dargan was in big trouble in the 3rd and showed a lot of heart and fortitude to come back from that adversity.

Dargan has some really good skills as well as some natural talent. His hands are very quick and he has very good fluid movement in the ring. From this fight, he needs a little more seasoning but later in 2015 can see him emerging as the next fighter to really rise from this series. A good fight for him next would be Estrada who just gave Figueora a tough fight or the winner of Cherry-Belmontes.

Right now, I'd pick Mchunu against any cruiserweight out there. He is very slick defensively and an excellent counter puncher. To me, he's a poor man's Rigondeaux. A little more offensive minded than Rigondeaux but you get the point. Mchunu makes you miss, makes you pay and then gets out of range. He has very quick hands and quick feet. I can see him having a hard time getting opponents because of his style and ability.

KNOCKDOWNS GALORE Salido Beats Kokietgym in Mexico Rumble

The people, they love the knockdowns. Lots to love in the Saturday clash between ultra vet Orlando Salido and Terdsak Kokietgym, which unfolded in furious fashion in Tijuana, Mexico. The scrap was lousy with knockdowns; if you want to skim the thing on YouTube, pay attention to the winner Salido hitting the deck in the first, second and fifth rounds. But the Mexican sent down the Thai loser in round one, four, seven and in the 11th round. That’s when the ref waved off the bout. Salido, still remarkably fresh and busy, hammered the loser...

An immediate consequence of Top Rank and Team Pacquiao picking a relative nobody to fill one of the Congressman’s precious two annual ring appointments in November is rampant speculation of who he will fight after dispatching with Long Island’s Chris Algieri. After some collective head-scratching followed by irrepressible yawning, the response from the boxing world that expects nothing from the Islander falls along the lines of “Well, who will he fight after Algieri?” As Pacquiao showed last April against Tim Bradley, he’s still...
