"If Mayweathers bodyguards are on PEDs what are they using them for? To promote Stomach growth?

Those guys are fat and borderline obese except one or two.



Floyd just feels more secure amidst that bullets stopping wall of flesh"

This fight boils down to one simple thing. If Kovalev lets his hands go he wins, if he doesn't he loses.

Krusher Kovalev has never seen anything like Bhop.

Bhop has never faced anyone like Kovalev.

I wonder what is going through their minds right at this moment?

"Yep, fair call RG.

But (in my defence, and this is not directed at you) when I initially took on the job as "The Mod" I openly said and/or indicated here on the forum that I had concerns about my schedule.

I was not in a position to dedicate every single day of the 1/2 month I was at the helm; but for the most part I could catch/read up the following day.

As far as the last day was concerned, I could not do that for obvious reasons and as it was the Monday (AU time) that closed out the 1/2 month I had back to back meetings.

Still, rather than say no - or spit the dummy - or throw the bike in the bush; I soldiered on and instead made an announcement that the final day would be Sunday; to give everyone advance notice.

This was - I hope - an example of the professionalism that DDV mentions above.

If I was advised at the start that the timeframes were as I know know them to be; I probably wouldn't have had a run with the task.

As it is I am glad I did as I got to develop a better appreciation for all the posters and the website.

In any regard, I am sure that BrownSugar is proven and good enough at being the Mod and participating/reading the forums such that any posts I may have overlooked in the final 1/2 day I may have missed (which is balanced out by the day early I started) can be considered in his tenure."



I'm not changing a thing Storm.... Your choices were solid. The winners you picked were consistent and powered through the second week with the same dynamic zest they had displayed in the previous week. You may have made an honest mistake about the time frame but you have nothing to apologize for. As far as I'm concerned those winners are official.

I agree its a good fight .... And Brandon has to think about his life after boxing considering that his days as an upper tier attraction are probably more finite than they were a year ago.

In my humble opinion the only thing lacking is credibility.

Would Cotto throw his name and into the hat with a fomer junior welter that hasnt proven he can compete with the best at 140, 147, or heaven forbid.....154 ?

This fight doesnt do a thing for Cotto. And the ensuing massacre wont reflect well on the boxing community.

Cotto ... The middleweight champ can probably get away with ducking GGG a while longer.... BUT to duck GGG and fight Rios??? I don't think so.

Yup! I'm eyeing old boxing flicks. That old classic -- with (Rev.) "Big" George in it is on TV in the P-Islands along with a ton of other boksing movies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz6dWOAWqRo. Holla!

It's still a good fight.

Good also, for Rios to cash out; as I am sure (he is thinking) his days are now numbered.

Cotto would also love it as he knows he wouldn't have to worry about losing and/or trying to find Brandon.

Thanks Shadow,

It’s all good.

I am not pi$$ed off.

Just stating my case, and also that sometimes the answers to the dilemas – both real and imagined ☺ – can be already there and accessible.

I am sure that Dino and EM will make sure that every worthwhile poster here gets a chance to be paid some prize money and recognized.

"I think it's important to just roll with the punches sometimes.

I mean, I have dropped some pretty large (and hopefully quite informative) posts here; such (for example) as my previous (1) Performance Enhancing Drugs, (2) Andre Ward and his Legal Issues, and (3) Kostya Tszyu Vs 3G Accomplishments posts

None of them even registered in the competition - as last prizes.

Happy to have anyone tell me why and whose posts were better.

I am still smiling and not complaining.

Different people have different values.

Forums can be all things to all people.

Peace boxing lovers."


You have. You're The Man Storm.

I especially loved your thread on the secret to GGG's power. I think I went on record to say when I last charted that I didn't expect to, mainly because of your contributions.

Bsug is an excellent choice. If open for 2nd half of the month, I'd be more than willing to be mod for that time frame.

"Thank you for the mention in another post Bsuge. I do not know what being MOD entails so I chose to stay in the background when I saw my name. I know that most that post on here are laid back but I did not want to step on any toes by jumping into something with no regard. Thank you for coming in short notice one I always enjoy picturing what you usually say in such a vivid way."

You cant possibly step on any toes... Just have some topics ready to move things along ....monitor the posts and interject when needed. I may have oversimplified things but being here is the most important aspect. The guys who haven't modded usually get picked first but there seemed to be some hesitation this week. Maybe next time.

"I caught the Storm announcement.



It's a half a month at a time. Starts on the first of the month and concludes at 12:01 am EST on the 16th. The next one runs from 12:01 am the 16th until the first of the next month (and concludes at 12:01 am on the 1st).



And while we knew it would be fairly time consuming, we felt we had enough professionalism in the forum to make the model work. Our bigger concern was the quality of the scoring. So we'll ask the question here: Does anyone feel there has been a miscarriage of justice on determining who was ultimately recognized at periods end, you know, with the exception of El Dude?"




There are some very knowledgeable and well written boxing scribes who post on this site. To me, its a pleasure to be able to post and communicate with such people who share my same passion for the sport.



The competition is very close each time out to say the least. It cannot be easy being a mod to judge these posts. Its almost like the scoring of a very close fight (Provodnikov-Algieri and Canelo-Lara are a couple recent ones) in which the decisions could have gone in a variety of different directions.



I am relatively new to the site and must say my personal observation is that the contest has been scored by all mods very fairly. It cannot be easy and I think each and every one of them has done a great job in being fair and objective.

coming in at svelt 202 lbs and ready to score an upset is the late replacement for ( place your name here ) ...brownsugar.



It is my pleasure to take the helm and decide once again who the p4p poster will be over the next two weeks.



Coming off the heels of the meticulously detailed reign of storm.... I'm jumping right in without as much as a cool glass of gaterade.





Here are the expectations ...



Quality counts ... Several posts with substance beats 50 posts consisting of gibberish... (although the good news is ...i haven't seen any gibberish in quite a while)



regularity..... Although you won't earn points for your word count it is important to check in at least once every couple days... One monster post won't get you far if that's all you have to show for the week.



The length of the post doesn't matter as long as you have something to say.



The quality of the communication continues to improve on this site as the gap between talent continues to close.



As of today everyone is a potential winner.



EPIC! I like it

Unless you have evidence that someone has been using PEDs to gain an unfair advantage.

The caveat was if *I was selected to do the next 1/2 month (also) then I would take into account any posts that their author's believed deserved more attention - I am not sure that *that has happened - has it?

Also, please remember; where I sit . . . we're almost a day ahead of you.

So, it was the correct day for me.

"LOL that's an inside joke. Last Friday on the show, Bernie hollered in and started speaking esoterically about Marco Huck and guys he should fight.

Once Randy booted him off, he called back into the show and altered his voice ever so slightly, talking about how he was "Felix."

The screen with the callers even said "Felix, Brooklin," yet the phone number was the same as earlier!

Once he got let on the line, he was back in trademark Bernie style just trolling away. It was hilarious."


I shoulda' known it was crazy ol' B-Camp acting like a telephone-calling tramp. It seems like he'd know that technology has a tail on him. And if he is not in da know, he quite electronic communication slow. Holla!

The Good Doctor:

If this were the Cotto that fought Pac, without Freddie, or Pedro, or a real trainer for that matter I might say that Rios would not get throttled. However, this would just be a poor mans version of Pac V Rios. Cotto would box his ears off, cut him up and win a UD.



To Radam's point, Rios is a fatty outside of the ring. I saw him in California once during his down time and he looked like he was wearing a sumo costume. I did not even recognize him at first.

Mayweather's Reading Ability Belies How Smart He Is

Fighting, whether it's boxing, wrestling or mixed martial arts, is the toughest sport known to man. Yes, all the other major sports require some form of skill, strength, toughness, stamina, speed, mental concentration and athleticism, but not to the degree that fighting or one-on- one combat does. You show me a great fighter in any combat sport and I'll show you someone who is very smart and who is also quick to analyze and process things pertaining to situations that change in milliseconds. No two fighters in the world fight or move alike....

One of the World’s Best Boxing Bars is in Munich

A few blocks down from Munich’s Hauptbahnhof, the central train station, wedged between two strip clubs in the city’s Turkish district, sits one of the world’s best boxing bars. The Sport-Café Schiller is a must-stop for any fan of the sweet science traveling through Bavaria. Most bars that set out to have a boxing theme rarely get it right. Some try too hard in the beginning and end up being a trendy gastro-pub with a few boxing photos and posters on the wall. Others try to create neighborhood bar atmosphere, which results in a set-up...
