  1. Re: Alvarez's Style And Physicality Will Topple Cotto

    Easy wisdom says Canelo will stop him. But there is a key in what Mayweather and Lara exposed: Canelo, is ROOTED to his feet. He cannot throw anything unless he can...

    Hey Storm - Thanks for the good words. Good analysis too. If Lemieux can stand up, he will make it very interesting.

    I’m good but frustrated. Got in decent shape after a month’s...
  3. Re: Boxing Clearly Not Dead, as The #GolovkinLemieux Presser Mood Is Lively

    Hey Storm - Thanks for the good words. Good analysis too. If Lemieux can stand up, he will make it very interesting.

    I’m good but frustrated. Got in decent shape after a month’s layoff from a...
  4. Re: Boxing Clearly Not Dead, as The #GolovkinLemieux Presser Mood Is Lively

    Great fight - may be a decisive difference in class, as Lemieux may just be that leaky-defense bomber that gets outclassed just when you start hearing about Rocky stories and puncher’s chance and all...
  5. Re: Klitschko – Fury: Mind Games, Round One

    Tyson Fury is 6’9” and has audacity. Tyson Fury is not a very good fighter. Tyson Fury has nothing but a generic puncher’s chance. He will probably be beaten up badly.

    Re: Sergio Mora’s Ankle

    Good one, Hauser. The injury that ended the fight had nothing to do with a Jacobs punch. I watched it again and again. There may have been a grazing-punch, flash-knockdown prior to the event that...
  7. Re: Danny Garcia Stops Malinaggi in a One-Sided PBC Affair

    Gutsy final performance, Paulie. That dragonfly-darting defense was all you ever really had, since no one is even annoyed when you punch them, and now that the speed is even 25% down, guys who miss...
  8. Re: Malignaggi Maybe Looking for Moral Victory

    Not quite fair. Had Paulie been a harder hitter, his career would have looked very different. He actually has a pretty full toolbox of boxing technique and smarts, but sooner or later any fighter...
  9. Re: Bryant Jennings Adds New Trainer To the Mix

    JDJ is becoming a gifted trainer. We’ll be saying greater things about him soon.

    C-Al spars weekly or more with my trainer, 10-2 Anthony Karperis. Extremely talented and fast fighter, d and o. ...

    Re: Why Shane Mosley is Coming Back

    Old story. All the ability and knowledge stays in the head. Even if 10% disappears from age, denial can make that 10% disappear until enough bad performances make reality sink in. Sometimes way...

    Re: Better UK 168er, Froch or Calzaghe?

    Froch turned out to be better than most people expected. But he barely would have landed a punch on Joe. Calzaghe would have made him look really bad. No contest, except that Joe would have had to be...

    Re: Trainer Peter Fury Talks Klitschko-Fury

    The skill differential will be as wide in this fight as in any WK fight in recent memory. One could arguably but honestly say that every one of Fury's wins against b/b+ fighters he's fought most...
  13. Re: Thurman Auditions For Shot At Mayweather Against Collazo Tonight

    I am grateful to F-Lo for years of superb boxing analysis. He has shown great knowledge and balance, not to mention an engaging writing style. But something seems....off.....in this article. I Like...
  14. Re: Wladimir Klitschko To Fight Tyson Fury in October

    WK did his least clinching against his biggest opponents. He neatly outboxed and outhunted Wach, who as almost as tall as Furry and much stronger and more solid, really broke him apart, and even...
  15. Re: Wladimir Klitschko To Fight Tyson Fury in October

    Exciting to get excited about someone who might actually have a powerball’s chance of beating WK. Fury is easy to hit, has an average chin at best, is a huge target, moves OK but does not avoid...
  16. Re: Tyson Comeback Rumor In Full Bloom; Tyson to Meet Toney?

    Of course, it is a terrible idea. But also brilliant, in the way an ill-conceived exploitation sideshow can also be brilliant. Funny thing is, I have a feeling that today’s Tyson would train for...
  17. Re: Roy Jones Has A Better Case For "TBE" Than Floyd Mayweather

    There is a repeating and necessary question that comes up as a result of both the topics and the smarts of this forum: Are the representatives of a division during an era automatically judged as...
  18. Re: Cotto Drops Hammers In Round Four, Blasts Out Geale in Brooklyn

    Just one factoid, if no one mentioned it yet: When Kellerman listed the weights Cotto has fought at and asked where he stands as a middleweight, Cotto cleverly listed a bunch of low-mid 150 numbers,...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    All respect - but just because people want to see Floyd lose doesn't mean that, with the claims of being TBE he shouldn't HUNGER to match his skills against a bigger man. TBE, who clearly sees flaws...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    All the greats except Hagler went up a few pounds to fight a bigger challenger or champion. It was because they couldn't live with their claim of greatness and still control all the variables. GGG is...

    Re: Hagler Appreciation

    Beautifully put. Without having lightning fast movements, per se, his attacks, sometimes lethal, had the visceral quality of being sudden and stunning, and timed for maximal effective impact

    Re: Hagler Appreciation

    With about ten seconds left in round six against Mugabi, watch them go toe to toe; Mugabi briefly gains an advantage and lands some bombs - Hagler, almost by his nature, comes inside in order to...

    Re: Hagler Appreciation

    You’re right about Hagler’s chin, and that’s only part of it. What made Hagler great is the same kind of approach and even tactical similarities to GGG, with the distinction that Hagler proved...

    Hagler Appreciation

    Give yourself a treat and watch some old Hagler footage - Hearns, Mugabi, Obelmejias, Caveman Lee, Sibson, Minter - I remember watching those in the moment, the ones that made it to TV, and rarely...
