"Yep - I hear you.
Money May is by no means clean.
But Maidana was blatantly fouling in a way where he must have known he would be caught (by reply) and possibly DQd."
They are both dirty, Maidana is wild and ferocious he will be blatant when fouling.
Floyd is sneaky, slick, and quick; he's always going to be clandestine when being dirty. However the ref, Bayless in particular let him get away with it.
Geez imagine if Laurence Cole was the referee. Lol.
If I'm not mistaken, Pacquiao does not have an exclusive contract with HBO. It's TR, and the two parties need to work that out because both fighters are bringing in less money.Reply
Congratulations Radam! Keep up the great work!Reply
Great fight, I've grown to respect Rosado over the last year or so. He's a throwback fighter and he's willing to take the dangerous fights.Reply
"End of round three, right at the bell, Maidana lands a flush right. Floyd’s legs go stiff and jiggly, and he stumbles to his stool. A preview of a KO loss soon to come."
Maybe if Maidana was able to wear the gloves he wanted we would be talking about one of the biggest upsets in modern time.
"I agree that Floyd didn't look as sharp as usual on Offense, but his legs are still there and his Defense is still sharp...
He still landed 51% of his punches and his Right Hand Counters were Lazer-Like, so even on a "bad night" he's still pretty good..."
Actually, in the first half of the fight his legs did not look good. And then Maidana nails him with that right hand at the bell. However his legs looked sharp the second half of the fight. He was using them really well.
"The fact that he clinched so much and so often is telling in itself.
Pac would beat Mayweather up badly.
Floyd does such a good job of rolling landed punches he makes you think they barely missed when in fact they landed.
Look at Floyds face after this fight, it looks like he got jumped and I only recall Chino landing just a few punches on his mug....."
I know and Chino's looked a lot better, did Floyd mix up the gloves and wear the extra padded ones that he alotted to Chino originally? Or maybe he's growing a tolerance to the xylocaine lol.

Did you knowledge how large Money May's top lip was swollen in that afterfight interview?
It is three or four times that size now. He is going to have to hang loose until the swelling goes down before his grill is repaired from Chino knocking out his tooth. Holla!
I love this scrap too.
I like Kirkland and B-Hop to win.
Good stuff, congratulations to all, and thanks.Reply

Here goes the whole bout: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGSQigc3BYU. Holla!Reply
Sounds like KB went home with a woman who had a man who walked in on something and KB took a machete for it.
Never mess with another mans woman, married or not never cross that line fellas.
If all these lighter guys were klitscho's size they would whoop him. I will put Ward right back at the top once he comes back and wins. V Lomenchenko is about to take over the sport.Reply
Floyd is starting to look like he is declining athletically.
He got caught with a lot of shots from Chino that he should not of.
Having said that, Chino fought all wrong, did not pressure Floyd enough in the beginning.
He better be picky with who he fights next.
"Feeling so delinquent. I see a few fights here and there. Drove down to Temecula to watch Austin Trout at Pechanga not long ago. I will try to get my reluctant butt back on here. But at 75 bucks a PPV, I don't think I can keep current and remain an honest, boxing-watching citizen. I've also got a new girlfriend who might be the one. So glad that you all time greats are keeping this website alive."
Youtube to watch the fights, save some money like my cheap butt does..
good luck with the girl, sincerely.
Ward is out, it will be a year in October I think and he has nothing scheduled, what a shame.
Floyd has not looked good for his last two fights so he drops.
Bhop has dominated his recent opponents with ease.
Rigo is a phenom but Donaire put him on his butt.
GGG continues to grind everybody to a pulp without even a hint of being vulnerable.

"Think he got banned, bro! Think Suge put the hammer on him!"
I have had enough El Dude for one lifetime
Had to make a minor adjustment

It is getting very hard for me to envision Floyd knocking out anyone at 147 or higher. I used to think it was because of his low risk style. Now I don't think he has that kind of pop. He may be physically strong but not in punching power. He and Maidana are about four or five levels different in expertise. Mayweather matched up better with Canelo. I think Canelo would match up very well against Maidana. I would like to see that fight. I still think Mayweather and Pacquaio is out of the question and that is a shame.Reply
"Was a woman involved? Who knows? It's best to keep a low profile once your champ.
If your gonna do something on the down low at least be near home where you have more control. You never know who will set you up."
That's the thing. Who the hell knows? It seems like a pretty drastic thing to do but I guess the attacker figured he needed an equalizer.
But does sure look like something happened on the DL.
"Everyone is stepping up big time. Thank you for the kind words. Good job everyone. Did el dude get banned or quit?"
Think he got banned, bro! Think Suge put the hammer on him!
Thanks for the love, guys. I'm celebrating by drinking a large glass of raspberry coconut tea with a pinch of maca power, cardamon power and red pepper in it. Hehe! That is some good stuff. Holla!Reply
I think he has healthier habits than the Babe had !Reply

Good job Radam G. Keeping it real 100% of the time.Reply
Having some beers after the game or spraying a champagne is all good.
Binge drinking is on a whole different level. Your talking whole bottle of liqueurs or cases of beers. I would think the team consultant might get involved if the players were taking days off due to a hangover. All athletes know when they can tie one on or not or else they end up in a substance abuse program.
