YOU GUYS ROCK

YOU GUYS ROCK

By: The Sweet Science Dec 31 2013

Another stellar year from our Forum crew, the best in this known universe. Results for Reader of the Year are still being tabulated. In a moment of weakness, I hired CJ Ross to help with the computation and, well, it didn't go well. Happy New Year to the best and brightest amateur scribes! --Editor Mike WATCH RELATED VIDEOS ON BOXINGCHANNEL.TV...

(MGM) Grand Illusions

(MGM) Grand Illusions

By: The Sweet Science Dec 31 2013

"Boxing is full of optical illusions. And I give Money May MAD props for doing a mix of Houdini and Marlin The Magician. Wow! Money May fought a club-fighting-like humbug in "The Cali Ghost." And a hyped-up B fighter in Canelo. The promotions were grand to get eyeballs and easy impressionable minds behind those PPV screens. Because the live gates didn't sell out." --Radam isn't sold on this being ...

War Torn But Still Dangerous

"It must be said that even a wounded, war torn Martinez is still a more dangerous threat than Canelo for Cotto. The powers that be must be expecting a phenomenal turnout." ---Brown Sugar says that Martinez is a tougher out for Cotto than Canelo WATCH RELATED VIDEOS ON BOXINGCHANNEL.TV ...

Be Wary of the Premature Writeoff

Be Wary of the Premature Writeoff

By: The Sweet Science Dec 31 2013

"To paraphrase Mark Twain, the rumors of Sergio's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Boxing media and fans tend to base a person's ability -- and sometimes full body of work -- on just one performance. Now Martinez is shot. But Cotto is on fire!! 12 months ago, people said just the opposite. Go through history and you will some of the greatest were written off prior to reaching their pe...

Heart Problem

Heart Problem

By: The Sweet Science Dec 31 2013

"I love Sergio "Duct Tape" Martinez. That said, some guys don't age well in the fight game and that someone is Sergio. Healthy, I love him against a slew of opponents. But therein lies the rub. Yes, he came to the sport late which is too bad for both him and us, but his oversized heart is going to end up keeping him around to get those attractive pay days and he'll be going life and death with guy...

Pacman Will Bounce Back, Like Duran After Hearns

Pacman Will Bounce Back, Like Duran After Hearns

By: The Sweet Science Dec 29 2013

The chin had nothing to do with the KO by Marquez on Pacman. Not a man alive that would have taken that shot, it was placed right and unexpected. Look at Duran after Hearns (TKO2 loss), no problem. --Kid Canvas says Pacman's chin will still remain resilient WATCH RELATED VIDEOS ON BOXINGCHANNEL.TV...

Can Pacman Take It On the Chin and Win?

Can Pacman Take It On the Chin and Win?

By: The Sweet Science Aug 07 2013

Rios does hit hard - no doubt, and especially in close. If he can get into that range where he's at his most deadly, he'll be able to do harm. He's no one-punch-killer, but really - neither is JMM. Pac-Man may very well take Rios out. I believe he does. And his ability to take punishment may still be good - but not as good as before. The neurological ability to withstand violence to t...

No Chin Issues For Pacman

No Chin Issues For Pacman

By: The Sweet Science Aug 07 2013

In one word, NO! The chin will not betray Manny! As many greats have -- such as Brown Bomber Joe Louis, Lennox Lewis, Roberto Duran and Terry Norris -- been kayoed by punches that they didn't see, Da Manny will spring back and BANG out of his opponent. Holla! ---Radam says Manny's chin will bounce back...

Pacman Is Ripe For The Taking

Pacman Is Ripe For The Taking

By: The Sweet Science Aug 07 2013

Regarding Pacquiao's chin...A heart may be repairable but a chin has a fixed resistance, heightened only by adrenalin. And that goes for Floyd as well because he was rocked hard too (although he survived ) neither one of them could withstand similar punishment consistently. If they stick around very much longer, they will both suffer the fate reserved for those who tarry too long in the game o...
