  1. 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...
  2. 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 todayís Tyson would train for...
  3. 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...
  4. 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

    Youíre right about Haglerís chin, and thatís 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...
  11. Re: Golovkin Will Know Next Better After Cotto-Geale

    Like.

  12. Re: Khan Edges Out Algieri in Solid Scrap, in Brooklyn

    Guys - now, I'm not JDJ, but DIDN"T I SAY that C-Al had the quickest learning curve I ever saw? The guy I saw ONE FIGHT before Provodinikov wouldn't have lasted three rounds against Khan. Watching...
  13. Re: Khan Edges Out Algieri in Solid Scrap, in Brooklyn

    BS. Even here at home, we didn’t think Chris to out-do Khan in any area where Khan was already strong, and that it would probably be a mismatch. But as I watch it , and again, I see C-Al leading on...

    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    Hereís a re-run of a piece I just added to another article:

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

    OK, hereís 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...
  16. 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

    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.
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. Re: Klitschko Wins UD12 in NYC; Too Smart, Strong For Jennings

    Fury is very big. But heís a clumsy doofus (rocked himself with his own uppercut once, 2-1 he has a glass chin), and heís never looked good against anyone who wanít MUCH shorter than him. Size be...
  24. Re: Klitschko Wins UD12 in NYC; Too Smart, Strong For Jennings

    Iíve 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 Ė 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...
