Yes, I'm not sure.

It could have been excessive vaseline off of Evander's gloves.

But I don't think that would cause really bad stinging.

I do know that Cooper took some hellacious shots to the head though.

Far out man. It can't be good for your cognitive abilities to be hit like that.

Glad I was never a heavyweight getting slugged like that.

Do you really think Chris Algieri will KO the Congressman?

The Smoke was no joke. Evander's conditioning and accuracy were both very impressive in this fight.

Great watch, thanks for posting storm.

What do you think about Cooper's burning eyes after the 6th? Underhand moves by Holyfield?

The $10M lawsuit GTP filed appears to be the result of Ward (allegedly) falsely claiming that GTP and/or Dan Goosen’s service/promotional contract (and therefore conduct) with him, is in conflict with the “Ali Act”.

Given that an arbitration commission and the LA Superior Court now disagree with Ward and support GTP; I would say that (despite how I love Ward’s craft and philosophy) he needs a good lawyer, or to go an square up with Dan and apologise.

Given my perhaps limited and removed understanding of the matter; (I think) I know what I would do.

Not in the least as I met no man that doesn’t feel anguish and pain at even the possible loss of $10M.

I'm putting my money on C-Al going to sleep EARLY! He does not have boksing moves. He's stuck in Kickboxing. And moves like he is doing the old dance known as the robot. His jab is a pushing peck, not a shot or a blast. Every time he push pecks it, he is going to get check.



As he moves he will be off balance, and easy to reach and challenge. It is nothing sophisticated about him. He is so very simple. Da Manny is going to pop him like a big, long pimple.



Wow! On C-Al, there is some "High Hopes." But around him, there are a few dopes. I heard those he bytches calling us a bunch of slopes.



I forgive them because they know not what what they say. In dat squared jungle is where they will pay.



With C-Al, we have no time to play. Out EARLY, C-Al is going to lay . Holla!

"10 oz gloves, I called that a month ago.



No surprise there.





Is the ring 40 feet as well?"




You did call it.



When you called it I thought it was a funny joke.



The joke is on us.



I get trying to get an advantage but it just makes me sick to be honest. I want the supposed best p4p to take names and kick *** not pull some crap like this.

It's always something with Floyd. He owns the Vegas commission . Chino has the deck stacked against him. I can't wait until the fresh faces take over boxing when lil Floyd retires again.

PAC has to eat some jabs for a round or two and fade back. When CA gets some bravado and steps forward that's the time MP must duck under and step to the side while firing a straight and a hook. If he tries chasing CA down he might get out pointed with no opportunity to land a combo. The old plan of taking some to give some will win the day.

YUP! And Money May has agreed to Maidana wearing the model of gloves that Maidana wants now in this bout. But instead of that brand being eight ounces, it is 10.

So I guess that now Money May's flunkies, floozies, fanboys and groupies can spin and bit off the famous words of O.J. Simpson's famous late lawyer Johnny Cochran: "If the gloves fit, I don't wanna hear anymore bulls***!

Ever smart is Money May. He defends both of his belts at welter and light middle, thus get more padding in Maidana's gloves, as he wanted. Welter and below dance in eight ounces. About welter, pugs dance in 10oz. Holla!

"I want to see your poetry slam so bad. I probably told you this before but when I was living in Hawaii, I would go to this weekly poetry slam that's supposedly the biggest in the nation. Or so they said. But it was phenomenal. I loved it.



And yes, read the overhand right he must. But it is so hard to decipher, so hard to comprehend. The delivery is tough to fathom, a nightmare to anticipate, its data tough to retain.



While he will certainly read the openings for the lead right and turn the page for an uppercut, when you consider the sick reflexes of Mayweather (and Broner), why is it that that overhand right is such a tough text to decode?



You know your stuff, B-Suge, and no one can explain it with more vivid imagery than you.



Why does that punch work?!?



PS I gotta see a picture of you looking like Michael Jackson. I got to."




Maidana's right.......its spastic... twitchy....and its not located in the play book. Chino possesses the type of right hand that could only be acquired genetically ...like a nervous tick. You don't know if he's waving hello or trying to take your head off.



We will see if May can dust off his "A" game in Sept.... I've seen video of him doing some strenuous stuff that I've never seen him do before.......with two belts on the line we should see a few glimpses of the incomparable 2006 version.

"Klitschko came back very well from a rocky start to his career with a lot of help from the same guy Lennox Lewis went after suffering two knock outs, Emmanuel Stewart !"

Emanuel Steward was a genius at spotting a fighter's strengths and weaknesses. Shortly before Wladimir Klitschko was stopped by Lamon Brewster, Steward said to me, "Wladimir makes a terrible mistake of dropping his hands after he throws punches. A guy with fast hands and power is going to capitalize on this."

Then it happened.

Then Klitschko hired Steward. He hasn't lost since, keeping the principles Steward taught him. He was able to do that because he is a structured, disciplined warrior. I don't believe Mike Jones, with his distrusting, scowling, "I-don't-need-your-help" attitude, will be able to do the same thing.

I am sure he'll return, but another Thomas Hearns he'll never be.

Not even close.

During elementary school I could barely read aloud myself due to being slightly dyslexic and having a profound stuttering problem.

Later in life I overcame the stuttering and slow-reading by reading tongue twisters every day and reading ye old king James bible out loud... Later I overcame my fear of public speaking by joining the spoken word poetry slam for therapeutic reasons.



Mayweathers problem is fairly common and is even easier to correct ....



But personally all Mayweather needs to read for me is read Maidana's overhand right...his hook to the liver and when to use the elbow to block the headbutts.



And most importantly when to read the opening for the uppercut and lead right..



Just roughly three weeks away now...can't wait."

Radam is right on - right is right. Jones has been a fan's disappointment, but I feel for the guy. As TSS house shrink, barring any neurological problems, I see a fighter who has lost belief in himself, the grandiosity - self-hype - that adds layers of fire and sheer will to combat-readiness, the belief that the tools in your box will WORK, that you can TAKE IT and push through....how many superior athletes in the ring have had their day in the sun cut short because they never reconciled being mortal with being a bad-*** SOB with will power and a sharpened razor. But here's a Doc Mortcola exception that proves the rule: Wladimir Klitschko. Hot shot giant with monster power and athleticism falls prey to anxiety the first few times someone bum-rushes his gate, and instead of becoming a car salesman or lost cause drunk, he re-tools his technique and learns to control his anxiety - no one has even shaken that "questionable" chin since the first Peter fight, and he's lost less than a handful of rounds in years. Forget whether you think he's boring - he fixed what failed to function, and became what he was truly capable of being. Mike Jones might learn a lesson there - a man must be have the courage to re-define himself when the first script fails. Maybe, just maybe, we see a Major Makeover and a second coming. I always liked the kid, but like Radam, i thought he was riding a wave that couldn't last. But the raw materials an fundamentals are there.

"When I arrived at the Sirius studios Monday afternoon, one of the first things I heard about was this ALS Ice Bucket Challenge where people challenge one another to pour ice water on their heads (or make a donation) to raise awareness for the disease.

Apparently, our one and only Commish had been dared to pour the water on his bionic noggin'!

Not one to shy away from a challenge, Mr. Gordon with his charming self goes on the air and starts talking smack.

"I am doing the Ice Bucket challenge tomorrow (Tuesday)! I challenge Gerry Cooney, Deontay Wilder, Mike Tyson, Prince Charming, Mahatma Gandhi and Charlie Z!"

Off the air, he even threatened to challenge yours truly!

He announced he would post it on his Facebook. So I go on there.

Nothing.

Hmm.

So I text the man.

"What up with dat ice, my dude?!"

"Plenty of ice!" Commish responds. "Antarctica ain't got **** on me!"

(Or something to that effect.)

So I come home late, LATE from late-night roadwork, shadow boxing and a pickup game with some wise-*** New Yorkers that couldn't handle that Shadow heat to check the Facebook once more.

Again ... Nothing.

Here we are, Wednesday night, inching close to Thursday morning.... and still nothing!

Which begs the question...



Did The Commish chicken out?!

Did he not want that work?!?

Fill us in, Randy! I wanna see that ice!"

Short of an unexpected KO at the hands of Kovalev as a result of Hopkins gassing and/or not being able to play the system, rules and referee for a break and/or more time (I think it’s a fair caveat considering Bernard’s reputation and age); I’m not going to be surprised to see Hopkins baffle and frustrate Sergey in order to win on points.

Kovalev’s never faced a guy that’s as hard to time and hit cleanly like Hopkins – let alone one that’s not only a (influential) part of the promotion – but one that will also (and perhaps with impunity) easily and happily both foul and disrupt Kovalev’s rhythm.

Whereas for Hopkins, Kovalev represents nothing he hasn’t seen before. I am not even sure if Kovalev has fought a guy that will deliberately send him mixed messages and screw around with his ability to (try and) understand his opponent’s timing; like Hopkins will do to Sergey.

All B-Hop has to do is control the tempo of the fight and the rest will fall in place; including the dismantling of Sergery’s biggest singular asset – his power.

And to do that Hopkins has his above-mentioned skills, plus his elusiveness, defence and, of course, that “Old Skool” Philly style.

"Hi Everyone.

There is still a few days to go, but this is just a little note to let everyone know;

1) I will post the results for the above here in this thread on Sunday.

2) I have been reading all your posts.

3) There are so many good writers/posters here that it is (genuinely) a pleasure to be a part of the TSS "in crowd". I usually read (almost) all the posts on this site anyway, but over the last few weeks (due to this obligation) I have read a little deeper into your posts and I must say there has been some very well thought out and insightful posts about this great sport; from BrownSugar, Amayseng, Shadow, RG, Skibbz, The Commish, Dino through to the Good Doctor, The Greyman, Grimm and Oubobcat (sorry if I missed anyone notable out).

Good stuff.

One of the many reasons I like this fight so much is that there are so many varying opinions amongst those who know the sport as to who will win and how it will play it out in the ring. There are many different possibilities as to which direction this fight will take when that opening bell rings. We are going to have a lot of discussion on this in the next couple months and I for one can't wait until November 8th.

"I'm picking Hopkins to dominate Kovalev. The only way I see Hopkins losing this is if Kovalev forces him to look his age and Kovalev lacks the tools to be able to do that. Sure he has power but how many fighters with proven power has Hopkins already dominated?. Kovalev is nothing new to Hopkins while Hopkins is something completely new to Kovalev and his biggest step-up to date. Of course, a one punch KO shouldn't be ruled out because anything is possible in our sport but I simply can't see it happening, especially not from Kovalev who's vastly overrated."

August 30 is almost upon us, and that date was supposed to be one to circle for the Bronx-based boxer Steven Martinez. The 15-1 (12 KOs) hitter was supposed to be showing off his stuff, that pop in both hands, that finishing instinct, against arguably the best opponent he's stepped in with as a pro, one Chris Pearson. Camp was good, weight was on target, his body and mind were firming up, and the kid was ready to rock.

Earlier this month, trainer and de facto spokesperson for eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao, Freddie Roach, dismissed Chris Algieri as a “boxer who has a good jab, but is nothing special. Pacquiao is going to have to press him a bit and will probably knock him out.” If the pre-fight hype follows form, you can expect Roach to beat the kayo drum louder and louder in the coming weeks as the fight draws near. Equal parts coach and boxing holy man, Roach preaches knockouts to Pacquiao’s flock of fists. But the sheep have gone...
