Arne knew where I was going with this.

Randy, the K Brother lost to Ross Purity. Quit against Chris Byrd. Can you picture Marciano quitting against Chris Byrd? Can you picture Ross Purity stopping Marciano? Of course the men you mentioned could still win Heavyweight Titles today.
To begin with, you have six to choose from. Those men had to beat the one man holding the strap. It's these present day guys that may never have gotten to sample being called champ.

I never warmed to Holmes either.

Yes, I think it's safe to say Larry caught a bit of a bad break having to be the one attempting to fill Ali's shoes, in what amounts to an impossible task. He caught some good breaks as well. Not having to fight a prime Foreman, a gift decision to retain the title. A major drop off in depth of talent in the heavyweight division from what had been arguably it's deepest of all time.

And I maintain Marciano would have punched holes in him, so the quote attributed to Holmes pertaining to Marciano soured a lot of us on him.

""Dog eat dog world." Danggit, you are all up in my boy's syet.

Chamillionaire rolled up on the great one the wrong way. You don't interrupt sombody's flow, cut off other people and expect for somebody to drop everything that he is doing and give you the stage. You be respectful and wait, or maybe send a servant or flunkie over to tell the great who you are and what you want and expect.

Fans will cut through other people and knock them over rushing for you. This is why the greats need a detail of big uglies ready to halt the eager fan. And bust their arses if need to be.

Chamillionaire is a star rapper. He is probably exaggerating, so that he can eventually put that syet in a rap song. If he hasn't already done so.

It ain't so about Mike! And it is a Santa Claus! And Easter bunnies. And a land of OZ.

"Of course Maidana will touch up Lil' Floyd with a couple of shift punches. And we will see if Lil' Floyd will be able to adjust.

I see Lil' Floyd winning easily in a stinker. After Maidana buzz him, Lil' Floyd is going to stink da joint out by slow punching, clinching and moving. Maidana doesn't have the foot speed to catch Lil' Floyd. And when Maidana cut him off, Lil' Floyd will just bytch tie him up. Holla!"


Sounds like you are describing the Hopkinzzzzzzzzzzzzzz-Shumenov waltz. Stink da joint out, clinching and moving, and bytch tie him up. When Hop does it he's a phenom. Wow he's 49, he's in great shape, he walks on water, the great Hopkinzzzz can do no wrong. I'm not talking about you radam, I'm talking about the Patrick Swayze from Ghost ditto man, the Money biased Ameyseng.

Not only does Hopkins slow his man down and beat them in a mud fight he starts by getting into their minds. Dude is master at mind games. I know he will never fight Mayweather but he would make Mayweather have a nervous breakdown. Shumenov was still crying after the fight when he said "And you said (the camera didn't stay long enough to hear what Shumenov said) and Hopkins said I had to say that to get into your head. He does make these guys fight like they hadn't planned. They are bewildered.

"Yeah I read about the Chamillionare incident, one of my friends is a gymnastics instructor, he told me one of his student's father ran into Mike in an elevator.



He asked for an autograph, "Blow me" was the response he got lol. This guy was white too, I know it's he say she say, but it does not look good for Mike.



The icing on the cake is that his shoes cost an arm and a leg when a lot of customers are from lower income families in the inner city.



I don't know him personally but I'm not his biggest fan"




LMAO "blow me?!"



Nike better have sent that student's pops some kicks! Lol that's hilarious, he's such an a$$.



I totally don't doubt he said that at all. After he drafted high schooler Kwame Brown with the 1st pick just before un-retiring, he tried to mold the teenager into a superstar.



When it became obvious he wasn't going to produce immediately, Jordan tortured the kid psychologically, bringing him to tears and then calling him a "flaming faggot" -- which would become Jordan's nickname for him.



Needless to say, the kid never made it. But hey, it's a dog eat dog world.

It wouldn't help him against Money May. I believe that Money May would take it away just as he did against the late Diego Corrales.



Height only works if the other fighter is standing to the outside, not punching, not moving to side to side and not moving his head. Money May would shoulder roll, two step stroll and on B-Hop put a terrible punching toll.



He'd beat B-Hop similar to the way that the young Roy Jones Jr beat the young B-Hop IMHO. Holla!

"Skibbz, he really wants to fight Maidana. From what I heard, he had to be paid off to let Mayweather-Maidana happen (though I'm not too sure about the existence of that rematch clause so it could be bogus).

He's a fighter and very competitive. I think he wants right that wrong. At least try. Don't you think after that embarrassment?

As far as box office, 300K is an outstanding figure for a first-time PPV headliner.

By comparison, Canelo had a successful PPV with Alfredo Angulo, which did 350-375. Pacquiao-Rios did 375-475, depending on the source.

Marquez-Bradley did around 350,000. Mayweather-Gatti did a similar figure.

So compared to Mayweather and Pacquiao, it's not that much, but then again, those two guys have rack up Top 10 all time box office numbers in recent years.

Also, I think Mike Tyson's last PPV did around 250,000, which was considered a success (all things considered)."


Wanting to get back into the ring with Maidana and enduring those body shots is all the respect I'll give Broner. Yes he got balls, but he tries WAY TOO HARD to be the bad guy and emulate big bro. Unless that's his real personality, which I would not be surprised if it is.

Apparently on Mayweather's 36th birthday dinner in Vegas Floyd yelled at AB in front of everyone telling he's got to stop swaggering jackin and be his own man.

AB is an impoverished version of Floyd, but his obnoxious demeanor surpasses boxing as well.

"I think Mayweather wins easy. I really admire what Hopkins has accomplished in this sport at his age but I think this is a little much for even him.

Mayweather has a significant speed advantage. That is obvious. Hopkins wins a lot of his fights on his ring intelligence. He gets opponents to fight his fight without them realizing it and exposes any weaknesses to their fullest that they have. The problem for Hopkins though is Mayweather is just as ring savvy as he is. Mayweather is not going to full into the same trap that other Hopkins opponents end up falling.

Mayweather's speed, accuracy, activity and ring smarts would make this matchup an easy nights work for him. I think Hopkins has some spots and does better at 49 than Canelo did against Mayweather but ultimately this would become another relatively easy decision victory for Floyd."


I think Mayweather's lower punch output would play into Hopkins' game plan, he could set traps for Floyd if he has the timing to counter him. But I think the fight would be a chess match.

"Yeah, MJ was and still is a global icon. There is almost nobody on Jordan's level. On the court Jordan was a killer, ruthless, win it all or go home. Living in Chicago at just the right age I saw the whole thing. From his rookie year I was going to games and just watching every move he made, with or without the ball. Floyd doesn't compare on any level.

Lets never speak of this again."

"C'mon man, that's cold. Be fair. http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=3854403



Different games, different rules.



Definitely Michael Jordan in terms of impact and talent. Thomas in terms of likability.



Also, his public persona aside, Jordan was a grade-A prick with no peer. And I'm a HUGE Jordan fan.



One time in Washington when he was playing for the Wizard, he was hanging out in a local club like those NBA guys like to do.



A fan comes up to Jordan's table with his girlfriend, hoping to meet him and maybe get an autograph. The married Jordan dismisses him, asks his girl in instead, throws the guy out, SCREWS the girl and ruins the relationship.



Yeh, she was a b*tch and dude probably deserved better but that's not exactly a good way to endear yourself to fans.



Another time, rapper Chamillionaire, a massive Mike mark, was at an auction for MJ, bidding on Jordan items. The rapper ended up overpaying for a NC jersey, I believe.



Seven stacks lighter, Chamillionaire saw Jordan hanging out, taking pictures with various women, getting his mack on.



As His Airness was taking a break from his tail chasing and just chillin' with some mutual friends, Chamillionaire humbly approached his hero Jordan about taking a picture with him, seeing as he had just bought one of his jerseys.



"Hell no," Jordan said, loudly. "I don't take pictures with no niggas!"



Jordan was surrounded by Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Spike Lee who all looked embarrassed by the ordeal. "Mike, chill, chill, chill, that's Chamillionaire, he's a big fan and he just supported your action!"



"I don't give a f***! Nigga!"



Jordan then, in a bullying manner, leaned over the rapper in a threatening manner and said, "I'll tell you what. You buy a jersey from me now for $15,000 and I'll take a picture with you!"



Chamillionaire walked off humiliated and heartbroken to see his childhood idol totally tear apart that image he had of him.



As word got back to corporate, Jordan Brand later reached out to Chamillionaire to apologize and offered him free shoes to make things right.



An interesting aside: Jordan freely poses with Macklemore, Justin Bieber and random white dudes. So I guess he's a man of his word. Lol.



He's also been known to be mean to kids asking for autographs, abusing staff, and being a notorious cheap skate who never tips. Whenever Charles Barkley tries to give a homeless person money, Jordan slaps his hand.



"If they can beg, they can just as easily say 'welcome to McDonald's, how can I be of service.'"



Ttally the opposite of his image. By comparison -- and I've experienced this firsthand -- Floyd tips generously.



Also, after the Cotto fight, after I had filed my story, I was standing outside the hotel of his after party with my homeboy, which was hosted by 50 Cent and Kevin Hart which = lots of hot mamas.



As we're plotting how to get in, because the line is ridiculous, Floyd's crew, which was the biggest sausage fest caravan I had ever seen in my life -- 50 dudes deep, easy -- said, "roll with us."



Next thing you know we're walking through the hotel like we're kings. An hour or so earlier I had actually "interviewed" 50 Cent (interviewed = asking two questions at the post-fight press conference and then being politely ignored).



It was freakin' surreal. If you've ever hung out in the "urban" nightlife scene, you'll know that dudes NEVER EVER show any kind of kindness to other guys -- as evidenced by Jordan's stories.



Floyd just said, "roll with us" and then he goes and gives money to the people in the club.



Frivolous? Perhaps. But he's not as bad as he's being made to be.



And Jordan is about as far from his image in real life as you can get."




Yeah I read about the Chamillionare incident, one of my friends is a gymnastics instructor, he told me one of his student's father ran into Mike in an elevator.



He asked for an autograph, "Blow me" was the response he got lol. This guy was white too, I know it's he say she say, but it does not look good for Mike.

The Commish:

I so agree, ArneK about Jim Murray. When I was Editor-in-Chief of The Ring, I sat at dinner one night with Murray in the early 1980's and talked boxing, boxing and more boxing. We talked about Sugar Ray Leonard, about MarvelousMarvin Hagler, about Michael Spinks, Dwight Muhammad Qawi, Matthew Saad Muhammad, Alexis Arguello, Aaron Pryor and a slew of others. Murray loved 'em all. When the talk came to the heavyweights, there was no question Murray had a journalistic affection for guys like Ken Norton, Earnie Shavers, Mike Weaver and even Randall "Tex" Cobb. But when talk came of the best heavyweight in the world--Larry Holmes--Jim became agitated and uncomfortable. When I asked why he felt like that, his answer ranged from "Holmes is devoid of skill" to "his opponents were, well, exactly that. None of them ever had a chance."

I never got an answer from Jim why he felt like that. But for sure, he did not like or enjoy "The Easton Assassin."

I really wonder why he harbored such a dislike for Holmes?

I do know that Murray enjoyed and respected Muhammad Ali. I wonder if Murray's intense dislike with Holmes came from the beating Holmes gave to Ali in October, 1980?

Hmm. I wonder if that was it?

I'll be tuning in on Saturday, but this looks like another stroll in the park for Wladimir who hasn't lost a fight in 10 years. I'm reminded that a lot of people expected a humdinger the last time a Samoan fought for the title, but the Lennox Lewis -David Tua fight was a one-sided affair devoid of the anticipated fireworks.

Polynesians excel on the gridiron, but in the squared circle seemingly can't get over the hump, witness guys like Jimmy Thunder, Samson Pou'ha, and Paea Wolfgramm.

"One of my inside guys at Robert Garcia's gym tells me Maidana is looking absolutely terrific in training...says he thinks he is in better shape now than he was when he fought and beat Adrien Broner.

The fight plan will be to try and make $$$May uncomfortable & and take him out of his fight plan (which, of course, nobody has successfully done). Miguel Cotto was the last guy who truly attempted to do that. While he didn't win, he certainly showed the vulnerability in $$$May.

As Maidana is sparring in preparation for this bout, shouts of "rough him up" come from his corner. You know that's exactly what they want Maidana to do to $$$May. When boxing's top PxP fighter goes back to the ropes, they want Maidana to blast away at his biceps, his forearms, his shoulders, his hips, his body. Lean on him. Make him push Maidana away again and again. Don't box him. Brawl with him. Maul him. Make him rumble. Round after round.

Make him feel the way Joe Frazier made Muhammad Ali feel in the "Thrilla' in Manila." Frazier was prepared to die that night. So was Ali. Maidana has to go in with the same mindset. Will $$$May have the same mindset? Has he ever? Does victory mean THAT much to him?

If Maidana brings the gameplan he has been training for, and couples that with the warrior's attitude we think is inside him, we'll find out just what kind of warrior $$$May is.

Eventually, every fighter has to show us how deep he can dig to pull out vbictory. Will May 3 finally be the day when $$$May shows us if he truly owns a warrior's heart?

We're getting close to the opening bell!

-Randy G."


Maidana's game plan will be left in the gym. I just got exhausted from hearing all that. Over training won't help him. He will be just as the overtained Bradley was and pull a calf muscle in his leg. Holla!

Hopkins' Strength Is That He Knows His Weakness

This past weekend Bernard Hopkins 55-6-2 (32) unified the IBF and WBA light heavyweight titles with a 12-round split decision over Beibut Shumenov 14-2 (9).
