    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    Here’s a re-run of a piece I just added to another article:

    OK, here’s a weird conversation piece. Floyd had a few lovely KOs full of slick combination punching early in his career. But this last...

    Re: The Greatness of Floyd Mayweather

    OK, here’s a weird conversation piece. Floyd had a few lovely KOs full of slick combination punching early in his career. But this last ten years or so, when his legacy was really formed....Floyd...
  3. Re: RED HOT ACTION: Canelo Steamrolls Kirkland in PPV Worthy Scrap

    I just envisioned this playing this way, this early. Kirkland would give it his all, would have no evasiveness (he slipped a little better than I expected), and I saw Canelo starting to sharpshoot as...

    Re: AND STIIIIIL...Floyd Bests Manny Via UD12

    Skibbz - you write and and think it eloquently. But there is another take. May weather didn’t surprise me at all because he has always been genius at neutralizing what his opponent does best. But...

    Re: AND STIIIIIL...Floyd Bests Manny Via UD12

    Hey Skibbz, all my TSSbros, respek, and I’m glad to be here reviewing things with you now that history has ended...I stick with a few perceptions of this fight.

    FLoyd didn’t do anything I didn’t...

    Re: AND STIIIIIL...Floyd Bests Manny Via UD12

    Pac had one chance to win this fight without argument. That was to be Hagler against Hearns. Forget that Floyd is a hard target. It is bravely forcing in with rocks in his fists and landing...

    OK. I’m trusting my TSS boys that I’m underestimated Fury. Can’t wait to see.
  8. Re: The Hauser Report: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Bryant Jennings

    Know what I love, as a Klitschko fan but a realistic one? The opinions have almost all become more positive than negative. It has sunk in. I will add that Wlad BECAME an underachiever in order to...
  9. Re: Klitschko Wins UD12 in NYC; Too Smart, Strong For Jennings

    Well, WK hasn’t wobbled in a decade or more. And, as for the jab-right-clinch, don’t forget that the guy can hook off the jab quickly, throw series of hooks with KO power, and will pull out the...
  10. Re: Klitschko Wins UD12 in NYC; Too Smart, Strong For Jennings

    Fury is very big. But he’s a clumsy doofus (rocked himself with his own uppercut once, 2-1 he has a glass chin), and he’s never looked good against anyone who wan’t MUCH shorter than him. Size be...
  11. Re: Klitschko Wins UD12 in NYC; Too Smart, Strong For Jennings

    I’ve always been a WK supported, as this forum knows. But he has annoying and limiting habits. First, there is no shame in a champ having an off night or having stylistic fits with a particular...

    Re: Klitschko – Jennings : A Lot to Lose

    Well, Jennings is a gutsy, talented guy, and it is true that Wlad doesn’t like to fight when he can’t control the opponent like a snake controls his prey, whether its by paralyzing or constricting...

    Re: Klitschko – Jennings : A Lot to Lose

    I have liked Jennings since I first saw him - a good, well conditioned athlete who did his best to make up for a lack of experience with a real dedicated study of the sport. But, as I read the...

    Re: Maybe IT IS Time For Floyd To Lose!?

    For me, the answer is styles make fights. But not just the generalities - the actual nuances of the styles. First, Pac and Marquez were eye to eye. There were no opportunities for anyone to exploit...

    Well, sure, there’s some fawning going on here. But at the same time, there is respect and acknowledgment for the mythic aura the Heavyweight Champ can carry - and whatever you may not like about...

  19. Re: Amir Khan to face former World Champion Chirs Algieri on PBC Spike TV card

    One thing I will repeat about Chris Algieri, as opposed to the majority of fighters who hit a ceiling and can’t get any better: He is very, very bright, and a very, very quick study. If JDJ can...

  21. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Only problem I see is Frank's characterization of Pac as fighting more in episodes. Pac HAS fought fights in which he has maneuvered and picked his shots; he was also a non-stop buzzsaw in many of...
  22. Re: Algieri Wants BIG Bounceback Fight, Broner or Khan

    Homeboy opinion: Khan is a tall order for anyone. But C-Al really suffered from inadequate training in the Pac fight. And, as I am trained by a guy who spars regularly with C-Al, and has done a...

  24. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    There's a funny styles make fights logic to why Pac might do better against Mayweather than against Marquez. Marquez could never really reach Mayweather. Mayweather never won by engaging, but only...
  25. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    Hi Storm -

    Of course, my sentence was overstatement. Pac has his repertoire, and those of us who know boxing can describe it. It is exactly the speed, unorthodoxy, volume, and stun power - the...
