"Socky -- I mean Rocky -- made the weight. And is suspicious wrongly about the haps with the scales. He ought to quit. He is just working his optical illusions for his BIG excuse after he get Pac-KTFO. Holla!"

You’re talking way too much smack. What are you nervous about?

"Maybe he's been training with Robert Garcia..."

In the past, he has trained at "Grandpa" Rob's boxing academy gym as a sparringmates for Chino and Bam Bam. Holla!

Early, early in the morning. And C-Al is off in up in day cranium and buggin.'



I told you guys that. He is a rich-kid con man and excuse searcher/maker.



He missed weight deliberately searching for an excuse that the Chinese are cheating for Da Manny from this to that and even the weight in.



C-Al, the nutrition nurse is a mess and full of stress. He is as paranoid as a chicken walking away from a butcher. you ought check out his chicken and dead-man walk.



To try to get rid of his intense and immense stress, dude over stuffed himself on walnuts, dark chocolate Hershey candy Bars , spinach and salmon.



All that is good but you cannot be going willy nilly. My boy Jermaine Jacksun of the great crooning Jackson Family are really shaking up C-Al. He will have a heckuva for his homie when he get back to the Empire State. Holla!

He was thrown off by the size of the stage. It's one thing to talk the talk before you put the weight on your shoulders but it's not so easy when it's on your back. He's cracking and it a pacquiao stoppage to me is looking likely.

"Oh yeah, I forgot to say something funny that he has a degree in nutrition and still missed the weight. Come on man! Be professional!"



You are right, but it's a little bit too late to be professional now !

Oh boy. Not a good sign for CA. He was bragging that he was eating Salmon or something earlier and was on weight. Coach Lane should of been paying attention to the scale and his fighter rather than making outrages statements like they will stop and retire Manny P.

I have no moral dilemma about watching the sport I love to watch ! If I was making money off the boxers blood and sweat and I was not doing something to help them when they could not continue to make me money, then I would not be able to sleep at night ! Two of my favorite boxers are in bad shape, Benitez is in terrible shape, Ali is in physically bad shape but at least his brain is fine and he said sometime ago he has no regrets about being a boxer ! It's about time they are doing smething about a pension and the people in California should go to jail !

Very good read.

I drifted away from Boxing in the 90s after a series of tragic endings to fights that I felt "close to":

Benn-McClellan (I was there that night),

Bradley Stone (prospect from my side of London who died two days after his first British title fight)

Spencer Oliver (blood clot on brain after European title fight. I trained at his gym for a while, we even sparred together a few times.)



But I came back because, in spite of the moral dilemma, Boxing still makes a lot of sense (especially in the inner cities), and also because "I love to watch them fight too".

"Well Coach Lane says Chris is gonna knock out Manny and retire him because the universe is on CA's side.

8 ko's , and he is gonna knock out Pac? That is BOLD.

And on the other hand I keep hearing master boxer-master boxer from the camp.

A master boxer is in the 41 and older division in amatuer boxing. 3- 90 second rounds.

Any way I hope a fight breaks out and we are all entertained."


I think everybody except Team Algerie would like to see a fight break out !

One thing for sure, Chris pushes through his point of impact he does not snap through it. No power."

I honestly don't view Wlad as some sort of defensive genius. His scariness is what works for him and it wins fights but it ain't nothing overly impressive IMO. Maybe I'm being unfair but a man that size should be walking thru his opponents at a more confident pace. Every time he gets hit solid he's shook up and terrified looking. Its the current landscape of the heavyweight scene that makes him so successful. He's also in a very, very comfortable setting every time he fights (home field, promotional advantage). That certainly matters for the scary. And! He needs to quit shoving his opponents. His shove has become his bread and butter follow up. His signature punch...if you will."




Some legit points. I don't like his bad habits. But certain things work for him. I don't think his home field advantage affects his opponents accuracy. He is very much like a heavyweight Hearns, though without the love of warfare. and, he just hasn't been shaken up by getting hit in a long time. He has always been effective after being nailed since the Steward reformation.

""WK's head movement, foot movement, ability to throw off his opponent's movement, are nearly unparalleled among any heavy of any era."







Um, Ali, Tyson, Joe Frazier to name a few."




1. "Nearly"

2. Ali got hit more by Chuck Wepner than WK has gotten hit in the last decade. Ali had a great chin, and his mastery of making 'em miss was briefly during the 60's.

3. They are all great

4. His subtle defense has, statistically and visibly, made him a master of staying in range (when not clinching), avoiding shots (incredibly low much stats landed on him), while keeping the other guy in his power sweet spot



Whatever legit criticisms there are, I stand by my assessment and can back it up easily with both numbers and examples. And kudos to the other greats who I grew up on and learned from.

"Sir Frank you are right, he must shock and amaze the boxing world to enhance his waning popularity and bag the Mayweather fight. A so so win would certainly not generate the attention and PPV numbers needed to force the two networks to sponsor the supposed to be big fight."



I agree with you but also the better Pacquiao looks the less interested Mayweather will be !

The Commish:

The only reason 99% of the boxing world is going to be shocked and amazed is because Chris Algieri is coming home from Macau as a 21-0 fighter.

Jessie Vargas is no long with May weather. Vargas is now trained by Roy Jones Jr. Holla!

"Paulie also has no doubt, according to him, that "Showtime" Shawn Porter was cheating too when he knocked Paulie da double fudge out "because (Porter) had been a Pacquiao sparring partner, and thinks that Pacquiao is an all-time great."



To be fair to Paulie, he's a consistent a$$hole until you grease his palms. In that respect, he's typically good for how da game rolls -- seedy, shady, sneaky and sleasy. At least about 75 percent of it. Holla!"




Well, about Shawn Porter...

Woods your heart is in the right place as are most liberal people's hearts. I get it , you care more than most because you're more fortunate than most. Or so you appear to think. And by golly if only the government would force people to donate more of their wealth to these poor people the world would be in perfect balance. Love TSS and your writing, but this strategy, like Chris Byrd's vs. Wladimir Klitschko in 2006, is foolish.

"The K bros, would have been in the mix, but I can't agree with them dominating. I personally would favor Vitali's chances over Wlad's due to VK's toughness. The skill level of the 70'-90's HWs is superior to what they are facing now; and that jab and clinch would not be as effective. They would definitely be in the mix though due to size alone."

Wow! All the HUGH sizes of the 70-90 got their arses tore up. The K-bros/docs would have been at the front of the line. Holla!

I just dont get why fight CA and then possibly Vargas next.

This is the near finale to Pac's stellar career, why waste two fights on these guys?

What a waste.

Pac should move up and fight Cotto at 160 for the legit mw title.

For one he can come in at 145 and still beat Cotto, and secondly he will make Floyd look terrible for not taking the risk.

Pac by UD or doc stoppage. Algieri just doesn't have enough pop to get Pac's respect, and keep him off.

The Tragedy of "The Harlem Hammer" Needn't Be Repeated So Often

His nickname, ironically, was “The Harlem Hammer.” James Butler was a super middleweight boxer, and a pretty good one at that. A fan favorite in his native New York City because of his relentless, attacking style, Butler was accomplished enough to have earned a title shot at IBF super middleweight champion Sven Ottke on Sept. 1, 2000, in Magdeburg, Germany, and despite the fact that he dropped a one-sided decision to the slick-boxing German, he was still rated at No. 8 in the 168-pound weight class by the IBF when he took on Richard...

Atlas Picks Pacquiao Over Algieri

Teddy Atlas, the passionate and opinionated fight analyst and trainer, on Thursday night held his 18th annual Teddy Dinner, the fundraiser for his charity, which honors his late father, and helps out people who fall in between the cracks in the Staten Island area and beyond. The ESPN talent drew a sold out room on Staten Island, at the Hilton Garden Inn, and raised another load of cash which will help out those needing a hand up. He was kind enough to share his thoughts on the Pacquiao-Algieri scrap with me the day before the dinner, as he...

The Moral Dilemma of Loving Boxing

Let me first say that I love boxing. I grew up at a time when Muhammad Ali was perhaps the most well-known person in the world and coincidentally, my personal hero. Jim Lampley has called boxing “the most emotionally accessible sport”, and he’s right. What could be more immediate than two fighters putting everything at risk in a small ring that offers no escape other than a 60 second reprieve every three minutes? When two boxers face off against one another, there is no one to help them. Oh sure, they do get some advice between rounds,...

Pacquiao Needs To Shock and Amaze Versus Algieri

What do the names Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, Shane Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez, Brandon Rios, and Timothy Bradley have in common? If you need more than a fleeting moment to answer that, you are not even a quasi-boxing fan. Those names represent Manny Pacquiao's opponents in his last eight fights. He fought Marquez and Bradley twice each, and went 2-2 in those four bouts. Not only have the six fighters listed above shared the ring with Pacquiao, every one of them went the distance with Manny and Marquez stopped him. Pacquiao hasn't...
