People sell you on what can happen in boxing. Just because it can happen doesn't mean that it is likely to happen. Pacquaio was two tiers above this guy. The last two weeks what should have happen did happen what could of didn't.

Some mighty strange quotes.



Kellerman: "Chris fights in a multidimensional way within one dimension?"



Lane: "We got him where we want him" just before he was decked hard to the canvas.



The kid is too nice for the cesspool that boxing is. He needs a few more paydays and a PhD.

"So Vasyl Lomachenko picked up a load more fans, more fans than maybe any 3-1 professional has ever had, on Saturday night in Macau.
(OK, apart from Zou Shiming, he has numbers on his side, and probably had more rooters following his arc when he had four pro fights under his belt.)
But the interest in Ukrainian Lomachenko is real, and so is the buzz surrounding who he’ll fight next. He got a UD12 over Thailander Chonlatarn Piriyipino underneath the Pacquiao-Algieri clash.
I myself like the idea of Guillermo Rigondeaux and Loma getting it on, a clash of Olympians, two technical wizards.
Rigo manager Gary Hyde talked about that pairing. “Rigo did his thing against the pound for pound number three, the fighter of the year, Nonito Donaire, and Rigo’s performance in April 2013 made Lomachenko’s performance look like an average spar,” Hyde told me. “If Lomachenko was as effective as Rigo, he would have had that oppnent tonight out of there in one round, just as Rigo did with Sod Kokietgym in July!”
“And if the Rigo-Loma fight gets made, Rigo hurts Lomachenko badly on the way to a KO win,” Hyde continued. “Lomachenko weighed 125 in one of his previous fights, and we can do a 124 pound ctachweight, and we will show who has made the transition from amateur to pro!”"


Unfortunately, V-Lo's left hand may be busted up pretty badly. We'll all know the results later this week. Will he wear a cast for two weeks, then get back into the gym and back into action in earlyn2015? Or will that left mitt need surgery, putting him on the shelf for the first half of 2015.

If it's the latter, there will be no V-Lo-Rigo fight until at least 2016.

Bummer!

But to answer an earlier question, not on PPV."



I think two knockdowns were very solid hurtful shots, the other ones come from Chris back peddling and running so much that decent shots put him off balance and down. He ran A LOT.



And yes I refused to pay that amount as well.

CA showed heart despite a terrible game plan.

Try to take Pac into deep waters and get him out of there? Are you kidding me? JMM is an ATG and it took him ROIDS and 40 rounds to land that perfect punch.

CA should have fought with his strengths, long, active jab, movement and quick combinations here and there to stay active and try to out hustle Manny while keeping him away... he still would have lost but at least fought to his abilities doing so.

Instead team Algeri out thunk themselves.

What is next for Team Algeri-to head down to Nasa and reinvent the space shuttle?

Perhaps they can sit down and knock the United States Deficit out in 15 minutes.

Funny stuff ! C-Al sure has heart !

Domenic:

Haha. Hey, your boy could've quit after one of the umpteen knockdowns and spared himself further assault, but soldiered on. He deserves credit. He showed tremendous heart and courage, and likely picked up some more fans due to his tremendous temerity. I bet he'll get another fight on HBO too. Losing to Pacquiao? No shame there, the list is long.

So Lane was allowing his fighter to get beat up and knocked down before he let him out of the cage, to give Manny a false sense of confidence ? Ha,ha, ha not the best strategy, I don't think he's gonna be trainer of the year !

Algieri is a tough guy, that’s for sure.

But, with all those knockdowns, Pacman basically owned and handed Chris’ azz to him.

I guess the big question is now after all this, is Floyd’s psychological state currently polarized correctly to accept Manny’s challenge so that both, (a) Cotto V Canelo doesn’t steal the day, and (b) so Mayweather remains relevant at the top echelon of the sport?

I’m not so sure – and that’s even aside from Errol Spence tagging Floyd in the gym, Floyd crying over it and the marks it left, and asking Errol to leave.

The only thing that impressed me about Algeri was his heart and his ability not to call "Bullshit" when listening to his Corner......

Well, my favorite fighter won. And except for the knockdowns, Chris fought with smarts, class, great anticipation, and big balls..Few people have ever made manny miss that much, or landed as clearly since Marquez. But truth and experience win out. Pac is one of the ATGs, and the home town boy can go home proud, That's all I wanted.

"Pacquiao looked scared to death in his dressing room. When his mother was doing Santeria to her son, I thought he was going to smack her.

He is nervous. Radam, I am hoping he makes it into the ring. He needs more than Santeria. He needs a hypnotist.

Algieri & Tim Lane have him & Freddy Roach totally bugged out!

Wow! PacMommy D is Catholic, not Santeria. She was blessing Da Manny with ritual of Catholicism -- no hate of Santeria-ism. That is in the Caribbean Islands, West Africa and Central America.

The relatives of B-Ware will be working those ritual of Santeria when he dances with your boy D-Wild. Holla!

The Commish:

It's midnight here on the East Coast, and the undercard is done. The Vargas-DeMarco was a terrific action fight, and the Lomachenko-Pirayapinyo was interesting if only to see if V-Lo could stop his tough opponent, using only his right.

Now, we await the main event.

Me, The Shadow and a few other guys on my show all think both guys look good in the moments before the fight. Gerry Cooney thinks Algieri looks stiff and that "Pacquiao looks like Pacquiao always looks."

I think Pac is nervous. I know Radam is. They have reason to be.

Sunday morning is here.

12:09a.m.--Algieri is on his way out to the ring. That yell he just let out shook up the sports office here at SiriusXM. If that was anywhere near Radam, we fear our Filipino friend has fainted.

12:13--here comes Manny. He's smiling and looks relaxed, but I think he has accepted his fate. He knows he cannot win and is putting on a facade.

The fighters are in the ring.

12:15--Michael Buffer now has it.

"Let's get ready..."

"Yup. Floyd can make 140. Loma can move up. Styles make fights, Nuf said."

Stop talking Floyd (although it is fun to think about, but certainly not realistic).

Let's talk Lomachenko v Nicholas Walters.

I have a guy who is so pro Walters that he is ready to lay 10-1 that Walters beats V-Lo. I am in. I am in.

V-Lo v Walters. Not only is it a dream.

It's real.

"In less than six hours, the Rocky myth of Long Island C-Al comes to an abrupt END! I'm just amazed of how so many haters like to pretend.



Da Manny is going to bust the boy up! But few of the haters are going to shut up. They are going to have more alibis than a million buzzing, nasty-arse flies.



Shame, shame, SHAME! C-Al is going to be so lame. And the sucka is in the wrong game. And have had his 15-minutes of fame. After Da Manny knocks his arse out, C-Al is never going to be the same. He is going to be humiliated so badly that no one will forget his name. Holla!"

"But I also remember this young, Welsh I think, boy getting killed years ago in the ring. "

He was the "Merthyr Matchstick", Johnny Owen. And he died after a bout with Lupe Pintor at the Olympic in LA. I was horrified when fans started pelting the unconscious Owen with beers and trash. I'd seen this behavior before after a Bazooka Limon fight. Everyone at ringside had large plastic tarps draped around their shoulders. I couldn't figure out why until beers started flying into the ring from every direction and the savvy ringsiders held the plastic sheeting over their heads like umbrellas... and that was after a Limon win! When Hagler won the mw title by KO against Alan Minter, British fans retaliated by throwing beers and trash at him and his handlers. His team surrounded Hagler to protect him from the flying debris. Two ugly nights to forget.

"Cooney and I have talked extensively about that night. Cooney was a ruthless, relentless finisher. If he hurt an opponent, he'd always step on the gas. He had a sadistic side to him that would make him want to put more and more hurt on his opponent. His trainer, Victor Valle, used to go wild on Cooney in the gym if he ever let up on a sparring partner, even a little.

"Finish him!" Valle would yell when Cooney staggered a hapless sparring partner. "What are you waiting for?"

I saw more than one gym session where Cooney left his sparring partner draped on the ropes.

The sustained beating and pummelling of Ken Norton was not Cooney's fault. Professional boxing matches have trained referees. They are the ones who are supposed to stop a match at the right time. Not too early, not too late. The right time. Referee Tony Perez was in there a few punches too late. He did that in other fights he officiated at, not just in Cooney Norton. Michael Spinks v Mustafa Wassaja was one of them. Ray Mercer v Tommy Morrison was another.

Yes, Cooney v Norton was a scary sight. All of us thought Norton was going to get killed as Cooney hammered him with blow after blow.

I enjoyed watching it.

But I hope I never see another one like it.

-Randy G."


Now that shed's a lot of light! Cooney-Norton, and Mercer-Morrison had the same ref! I never knew this, but it makes all the sense in the world. He was late for Cooney-Norton, but for Mercer-Morrison he was... absurd. That was a terrifying moment. What happened to Perez after Mercer-Morrison?

@DaveB: was the welsh kid Johnny Owen (v Lupe Pintor)?

"I actually think Lomachenko has an easier time in this fight than he did against Russell. Yes the Thai fighter has a glossy record but who has he fought? His last fight in August for example he won a six round decision against a 2-2 fighter and his record is littered with fighters with such records (a few fights back beat someone who was 1-10). The one time he stepped up he lost a wide decision to Chris John.



The bigger question to me is how dominant will Lomachenko be in this fight and can he get a stoppage.



On the undercard, I am actually looking forward to the first fight between Vargas and Demarco. I think this could be a high contact kind of fight and very entertaining. And probably will be the best fight of the night."




Absolutely... I'm working overtime and won't get off till midnight... But I'm recording the fights

I wish your guy luck. What he lacks in experience he almost makes up for with determination.

Chris has a good image that resonates with fans.



Can't wait to see Lomo defend his title.

Props To Tim Lane And His Guy Algieri

Bless that Tim Lane, he was still optimistic, still trying to project the image of the captain in charge of the ship even while water was being baled from iceburg tears. The trainer for Chris Algieri was still, in round nine, after four knockdowns, believing in his kid, thinking he’d be able to turn the tide, and give Pacquaio some bad medicine. He told HBO analyst Max Kellerman as much during the ninth. Max: “Was there an idea that after four rounds something changes?” “Yep.” “What was gonna change?” “I’ll tell you...

Zou Shiming took on Kwanpichit Onesongchaingym in the second to last PPV bout from Macau on Saturday night, and who would have known, Zou is now a bomber type. OK, maybe not a "bomber," but Zou craved KO and sent his foe to the mat four times enroute to a UD12 victory. He likely tortured trainer Freddie Roach, squaring up, leaving himself open to counter rights, but a win is a win is a win. The scores read: 119-106, 199-0106, 120-103, for Zou, who earned extra points for fighting with a severely swollen left eye. Zou went 340-816 to 119-534...

Lots To Like in Lomachenko; Loma Gets UD12 Win

Vasyl Lomachenko took on underdog Chonlatarn Piriyapino in the second bout of the HBO PPV slate, on Saturday night (US time), and he won round after round, using both hands, and from round seven on, mostly just his right. Loma hurt his left after landing a sharp tag, and needed to adapt if he wanted to win. The best mover in the whole darn sport did so, flawlessly, against a resolute but more limited athlete. After 12 rounds, the scores for Loma read: 120-107 times 3. Loma went 368-1006 to 86-471 for the loser. Loma (now 3-1; age 26; 126...
