  1. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    Yes, he is a threat to anybody in history. I go against the conventional wisdom of head movement, pressure beating him. Head movement against that extended left arm just means you end up in a clinch...
  2. Re: Golovkin's Style, Power Means He's Capable of Klitschko-ish Domination

    "Maybe he is there to be hit because he has not had one guy with power or skills enough to challenge him and make him adjust.

    Even someone as great as Floyd adjusts to each fighter....Against...
  3. Re: Golovkin's Style, Power Means He's Capable of Klitschko-ish Domination

    I think prior to his injuries and decline, Sergio Martinez may well beat him. Love GGG, but don't see him as unbeatable at all. A good puncher with decent speed and defence should fancy their chances...

    Re: Can We Get the S.O.G. in the R.I.N.G.?

    No offence Shadow, Ward has had everything on his terms for years and no rumours that he's said this or that change my opinion at all. I'll change my opinion when I see Ward in the Wembley ring....

    Re: Can We Get the S.O.G. in the R.I.N.G.?

    Hi Amayseng - Ward certainly won the first fight clearly so perhaps you are right - and if so - it's easy money and a no-brainer for SuperAndre to cross the Atlantic and collect a huge cheque for...

    Re: Can We Get the S.O.G. in the R.I.N.G.?

    Is Froch avoiding Ward? How badly does Ward want to fight Froch? - depends on your perspective. Froch has fought all round the world and lost two fights in his opponent's countries. Andre Ward is a...
  7. Re: If The Klitschkos Are Era's Numbers One And Two, Who Is Number Three?

    You're right Roast, Haye fought fewer times than he should have for various reasons. To my eyes though he is (was?) a huge talent. The speed, the power, the movement. He KO'd Chisora when monsters...
  8. Re: If The Klitschkos Are Era's Numbers One And Two, Who Is Number Three?

    Re: If The Klitschkos Are Era's Numbers One And Two, Who Is Number Three?
    If Haye ever fights Povetkin, we may find out. If Haye is anywhere near fit after his op and layoff he KOs Povetkin. If they...

    Re: My, How Things Have Changed!

    ...when fighters clearly, blatantly slip onto the floor even if a nothing punch lands on a shoulder and neither the ref nor the commentary team demand it be called a knockdown and replay it 15 times...
  10. Re: THE COMMISSIONER'S CORNER: Ed Derian Was One of the Best

    In my youth in the late-1980s I used to VCR a through-the-night UK sports show that showed a Felt Forum fight every week and gave me my introduction to Ed Derian. I don't think it's nostalgia, I...
  11. Re: Sorry Mr. Mayweather, Sugar Ray Robinson Was The Best Ever

    Time goes on and as SRR become more of a legend in history books, as fewer people are around who saw him in his prime, as the only footage is of the beatable middleweight, it's inevitable SRR's n1o...

    Re: How Will Floyd Mayweather Be Remembered

    As an ATG defensive fighter. One thing he has in common with Ali is that he is more probably more vulnerable to boxers than pressure fighters or punchers so he endlessly fights boxer-punchers who...
  13. Re: Why Wladimir Klitschko is Probably Much Better Than You Think

    Great guy (as is his brother) and he has perfected a winning formula. His record on retirement will demand respect. He's always in shape. He ducks nobody (except Valuev possibly). His conduct and...
  14. Re: Why Wladimir Klitschko is Probably Much Better Than You Think

    Put Wlad in a ring in San Diego in 1973 with Norton or Frazier and he'll be DQ'd for excessive holding and not wanting to fight. It may only take 3/4 rounds. If he can't hold and wrestle he gets Ko'd...
  15. Re: Bam, Neno and Argentine Clinches TSS Aug. 5, 2014

    I thought the ref was out of order and Chaves only held as much as any opponent dealing with an aggressive opponent. The controversy came because Rios is a physically strong guy who refused to be...

    Re: Klimas Dubious That Ward-Kovalev Could Be Made

    Hi there - surely HBO has the power to say if you don't want tough fights (or we simply can't make attractive fights for you) then we won't be renewing your contract and you won't be on HBO beyond...

    Re: Klimas Dubious That Ward-Kovalev Could Be Made

    Gotta love the double-standards in boxing. 'Come on up to 168, Gennedy, it's only 8lbs.' Followed by 'There's no way I'm going up 7lbs to fight Kovalev.' Not knocking Ward, but he's not giving up any...
  18. Re: Gennady Golovkin Really Good, Getting Better

    Once a guy drags himself to the top of the division, we seem to be quick to say he wouldn't have survived in a different era or that the current crop suffer too great a disparity in skill to be a...
  19. Re: Gennady Golovkin Really Good, Getting Better

    One thing is for sure, a lot of big name guys will avoid GGG for one reason or another but if HBO put up decent money, Froch will take the fight in a heartbeat. As I posted earlier, I think it's a...
  20. Re: Gennady Golovkin Really Good, Getting Better

    GGG is very good but I'm not getting carried away. It's a very good dimension I admit, but there is a robotic, one-dimensional feel to it all. His head movement isn't great, he's hittable. He can...

    Er...sorry about this, I had a spell when I was too busy to get on TSS. I had no idea I'd won something, but that's my fault. Thank you for putting me in the mix with guys whose opinions I respect...
  22. Re: Report From Golovkin-Geale Presser at Madison Square Garden

    GGG WRtd8 Geale.
    Perez Dec Jennings.

    Geale's pace, consistency and variety may offset GGG for a while, but I don't see many problems unless GGG has a real 'off-night'. If that happened Geale is...
  23. Re: The Historic Fifth Crown: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, 2015

    Hi there.

    Point taken.

    If the upper weight for a Cotto-Mayweather is 160 and they both weight in 152, hell, if they weigh in 142, no problem, they could have weighted 160 if they chose and it's...
  24. Re: The Historic Fifth Crown: Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, 2015

    I have a problem with this whole Pac/Mayw/Cotto era. They're great fighters but the traditions of boxing are being forgotten, swept away. I know this is a rant but here goes...if it's not at the...
  25. Re: Rigo Gets W In the "Protect Yourself At All Times" Fight in Macau

    I agree the bottom line is protect yourself at all times - but, really...is it what we want?

    Rigondeaux will never admit it, but he already wishes he hadn't done it and the people around him do...
