Postol is all wrong for Mattysse.... Decent boxers can get by Mattysse with a contraversial win. (Judah, Alexander) Good boxers beat Mattysse (Garcia). Postol may be an unknown commodity, but he's a far better boxer than Mattysse has been in the ring with in quite a while.
And let's not forget that Selcuk was a strong welterweight so don't look for Postol to be overwhelmed.

Ha.... Made me chuckle I think you've got a serious point SouthPaw.

@Oubobcat I've watched Postol since his first 12 rounder. At that time I asked a friend of mine who knows the Russian scene inside out and he told me Vik P was a strong amateur with 220 W's but not amongst the best of the best. His performance was impressive although the opponent admittedly was not up to par however game. Since then he's beaten a string of good boxers, tricky fighters and fighters with some real toughness. Fighting Americans in the States hasn't fazed him and at 29 (I believe) he is ready to embark on the biggest fight of his career.

He's tough, as with all taller fighters they can be clipped by looping shots but this isn't something new to him and he has for as long as I have watched him been able to keep shorter and stockier adversaries at arms length where he prefers them to be. The power isn't phenomenal but hard enough to keep you at bay - you can't eat them all night without getting marked up pretty bad. He's also game which is great and will help him against Matthysse.

Matthysse will have to fight past the long reach of Postol. Postol is extremely adept at keeping a shorter opponent at bay and if he's focused and doesn't get dragged into a slugfest with the banger he should have a good chance, better than Matthysse for my money. Now i'm not saying Postol is the new king of the division, not by a long shot, but if he sticks to the right plan he has the beating of Matthysse. If he succumbs to the pressure, freezes and loses focus at any point it will be Mattyhsse who will be crowned the new world champ.

Either way now with the cotton wrapped champ is looking to vacate the division let's hope we get some good fights for the strap...

Also would anyone be surprised if Broner Matthysse fight it out? Is that a possibility? Someone please inform me.

Actually with Rock Stars and Rappers lighting up on stage. An elected official admitting to smoking pot (Clinton) without inhaling. And 85% of Hollywood advocating the legalization. of pot..and Two of cable TV's Highest rated Shows ; "WEEDS" and "Breaking Bad" having been embraced by mainstream America its not even safe for an elected official to oppose the use of pot.
Ask Arnold!!!
Personally I can't smoke it but those who do and those who display smoking it have little to fear.

My typical list is as follows.



1. Ray Robinson

2. Joe Louis

3. Henry Armstrong

4. Harry Greb

5. Roberto Duran



That's P4P Top Five. I include only modern age to guys like Bob Fitzsimmons are not included but are tops in their own era and probably any other.



As for Mayweather, I think he has trouble with any of the following at welterweight: Robinson, Leonard, Hearns and Duran. I can't decide who is the biggest nightmare for him, Hearns or Duran. Both have cases. I think prime Henry Armstong would wreck him, too. That isn't to say Mayweather isn't great. He is. But he's not up there with those guys. If you want to overrate someone of this era, it should be Pacquiao. His wins over Barrera, Morales and Marquez are better than any Mayweather has, and his welterweight prime in 2008-10 was unbelievable for someone who started out so small. Moreover, his thrashing of Bradley this year is better than any win Mayweather has since he moved over to Showtime.

He has a hypnotist who persuades fighters left and right. His name is Ben. He's the true power wielder behind Team Haymon.

Hehehehehe! Now you getting tRoast crazy with the comedy wisecracks.

"...all those babes have glaucoma and can't see well...." OMG! Haha!

That is classic. And Imma have to steal it.

There is no regulated "policy" in Sin City. These crooks just want some copy and space time.

Money May can easily make all those powers that be biters go away by saying, "We are practicing our religion. And this is not just a gym, but a church."

All of those "want-to-discuss-'policy' crooks will scatter." Holla!

Lets remember too that Mayweather Promotions was just granted a promotional license in Nevada. I think the bigger issue for Floyd might not be his own standing with the NSAC but potentially his company's standing. Promoters are held to a higher level than fighters. As a promoter too, the safety and well being of the participants should be of the highest priority. What does it say of the company he founded when you let two guys go at it non-stop in your gym in an untimed boxing match where the loser is the first one to give in. That's not safe by any means and rightfully raises questions about what else is going on at the gym and at Mayweather Promotions in regards to fighters safety.

Ok now I have two questions:







What was the last Non Mayweather fight to Top 900,000???





What were the numbers for Canelo's two PPV fights this year????









Don't worry I'll wait...

"Seems the powers that be are not happy with Floyd's gym . The footage we all saw on the all access has the lawmakers scratching their heads .
Unsafe environment , fighting to the death, illegal gambling , no air conditioning , no rest , no rounds, people being knocked unconscious with no medical people around.

The face of boxing and head of a sad promotional outfit sure shows outstanding integrity , concern for the fighters health and general class and dignity."


Ask The Shadow. Right after that episode of All Access, we discussed it on my show. Everything they do makes a mockery of the very existence of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. I heard from my friends up there that they had no idea these things were going on, and now they are going to do something about it.

Remember, their new Executive Director, Bob Bennett, is a retired Special Prosecutor for the FBI. Floyd Mayweather and his crew of miscreants have effed with the wrong guy. If you do that stuff, you do it in private, not in front of the Showtime cameras.

I have a feeling Bob Bennett is going to come after Floyd, his promotional license and the license of everybody else who was seen in that All Access.

You think Marcos Maidana gave $$$May a tough fight? Just wait!

"Can somebody with some knowledge about PPV buys tell me the last Non Mayweather bout to Top 900,000 buys...."

It depends if you want bullsyet and created counting or the truth. Canelo can match Money May any day of the week and eight times on Sunday. He is the one on the mainland.

Canelo's BIG-money supporter superbillionaire Carlos Slim has more bread than W. Buffet. There are opticials illusions everywhere. Money May is not the only pug that shoots them out.

You are apparently asking about PPV payouts on the U.S mainland. Because Da Manny kicks Money May's arse all the time in Canada and the Caribbeans. And Canelo does it to him back in Latin America, including Arizona, Texas, California, Colorado and Nevada.

"FIGHT DA POWER DAT BE! Don't believe the hype." Money May's PPV is joke in your town. And if it were not for create counting he would be a rich joke in every town. Holla!

"Whatever the authorities think of the situation and from what they saw in the video, it's not something that can really be policed and it happens all over the world in every single boxing gym that teaches people how to fight. If the gym is serious, then everyone will be tested. I remember after the first week I had attended my first ever boxing gym, with only having been taught the stance, the 1-2 and nothing more I was thrust into a 3x4 spar with a boy older and bigger than me who didn't care that I had no idea how to defend myself in the ring. They wanted to see heart, that I wouldn't give up and that I would fight back.

D2 I am sure you know this and you will agree with me on what I have said. Sure the illegal gambling, ridiculousness of the entire sparring affair and the lack of medical attention to those being knocked unconscious is wrong and should be looked into, but this is a brutal sport at the end of the day, it's survival of the fittest where only the strong survive."


Actually you'd only need a person skilled in First Aid procedures at the Mayweather Gym.

The idiots that be who would meddle with Mayweather Gym would lose big time. I've seem it before. There is no problem about gambling and prostituting in the Fam May's gym. Legal gambling and legal prostitution are orders of the day in Sin City.

You guys need to holla at the place. You have hard hos and hard gamblers parading around with signs and shirts saying: "Hoes For Jesus," "Hos For The Lord," and "Gamblers For God."

Maybe a lot of people miss stuff become of looking, but not seeing, or because of just plain, old inattentional blindness.

I could tell you about some inattentional blindness in Sin City that will knock off your sock. Holla!

I see that they couldn't jive play you with inattentional blindness by making you exclusively focal on the fights and the celebrities at ringside.

The crooks that be excuses for all those empty mid-level and nosebleed seats will/would be: "In case of a fire, a roid, a medical situation or terrorist attack, we left seats unoccupied for emergency access."

Oh, YUP! RIGHT! Just when Money Mays fights. You lead of the arena empty.

But no need for "emergency access" when Day Manny/3m scraps.
