  1. Re: Boxing Brother Combinations: Do You Have a Favorite?

    The Ruelas brothers were on of my favorite combinations. They fought on tv a lot in in the 90's and often made for action fights.

    Gabriel Ruelas' fight with Arturo Gatti is one of my all time...

    Re: Perez and Jennings in NY State of Mind

    I like Jennings in this one.

    One factor to look at are the recent fights of Jennings and Perez. Jennings has been in with solid pros and come away with pretty impressive wins. He also did not take...
  3. Re: Alexander Ustinov: What are his chances of winning on Saturday?

    I don't doubt that Fury will have some target practice. But I also think Ustinov is just going to go for it early. He took the fight on short notice and I would not be surprised if he comes out guns...
  4. Re: Alexander Ustinov: What are his chances of winning on Saturday?

    I will say this, credit to Fury for taking on a dangerous opponent. I am really surprised that Ustinov.

    My guess would be Ustinov will be dangerous early. He is a big heavyweight and can punch...
  5. Re: COMMISSIONER'S CORNER: On Judging Missteps, Algieri's Deep Cut, More

    Its a quaint older little place. The best way to describe it as a small Italian diner. I was with my wife and she wanted to go stop by Presque (not the Casino but the state park a few exits from the...
  6. Re: The Similarities Between Golovkin-Geale and Tszyu-Phillips

    When I first saw Golovkin, I was instantly reminded of Tszyu. They hype surrounding Tszyu too in 1997 was very similar to the hype Golovkin is receiving today.

    Much like Tszyu lived up to the a...
  7. Re: COMMISSIONER'S CORNER: On Judging Missteps, Algieri's Deep Cut, More

    Another great piece Commish.

    I did not realize Al Gavin was not in the Hall of Fame. That certainly needs to be corrected. He was not only a great cut man but great corner man as well. Hopefully,...
  8. Re: COMMISSIONER'S CORNER: On Judging Missteps, Algieri's Deep Cut, More

    Skibbz, I can't believe you dropped the name Lou Bizzaro. A few weeks ago I was driving through Erie, PA and came across Lou Bizzaro's Ringside Restaurant. Of course, I had to stop. Not a bad place...

    Re: Danny Garcia fighting # 77 at +142lbs

    This is getting absurd. Salka is a Lightweight who fought his last fight at 132 1/2. It makes the choice of him as an opponent all the more head scratching.

    Look, I understand that fighters need...

    Re: Provodnikov-Rios In the Works?

    Gentleman bet it is...I will say this too. I have been looking forward to this fight since it was made. I don't see anyway that these two are not exchanging leather from round one. It will be a fun...

    Re: Provodnikov-Rios In the Works?

    I think it does in this case though. Rios fought most his career at 135 and even lower at times. He has just recently come up to 140 and now 147. Chaves is not a guy who started his career at say Jr....
  12. Re: My Favorite ShoBox Moment - The Double Knock Down

    Speaking of double knockdowns, I am not sure who remembers or who has even seen this one. It was from a bout in the UK between Cello Renda and Paul Samuels in 2009. Though it wasn't televised here in...
  13. Re: Ray Mancini: "Golovkin is action packed; Canelo is an ordinary fighter; Mayweather is special..."

    I agree, I would actually love to see Boom Boom as a television analyst. He knows the sport and is very well spoken. He called one of the Top Rank shows from Macau last year and did a tremendous job....

    Re: Provodnikov-Rios In the Works?

    I love the fight but before we can seriously think about it Rios has a tough challenge in front of him next week. How about Provodnikov faces the winner of Rios-Chaves?

    One thing not being...
  15. My Favorite ShoBox Moment - The Double Knock Down

    ShoBox is doing its 200th show on Friday. There have been many memorable moments but the one that stands out to me is the double knock down in the Powell-Bundrage fight. At the opening bell, they met...
  16. The Similarities Between Golovkin-Geale and Tszyu-Phillips

    Gennady Golovkin faces Daniel Geale on Saturday night. Though many experts believe Geale is the toughest foe to date for Golovkin, very few are giving him any chance to pull the upset.

    This bout...
  17. Re: Shawn Porter talks about his second title defense against Kell Brook

    Porter's soft spoken manner is kind of similar to the way Golovkin talks outside the ring. I think the way Golovkin speaks has helped him gain much respect from the fans and Porter is on the road to...
  18. Re: Ray Mancini: "Golovkin is action packed; Canelo is an ordinary fighter; Mayweather is special..."

    Boom Boom was certainly a fighter who gave fans their money's worth all the time and I can see why he likes such fighters as Golovkin, Santa Cruz, Mares, Doniare, etc. These are aggressive action...

    Re: You all need to see this...

    Here is my long standing take on the matter...

    Is there an issue with PED's in boxing? There is no question, there is a problem. There are many fighters out there cheating the system using illegal...
  20. Re: Dereck Chisora Breaks Hand...Tyson Fury Fight is OFF!

    I am not a fan of Tyson Fury's but actually do kind of feel for him on this. This is now the third time in less than a year a big fight has been postponed on him and the 2nd time it happened with...
  21. Re: Is Guillermo Rigondeaux The Next Finito Lopez?

    I don't see the comparison's to Ricardo Lopez. Lopez was a different breed to me, a once in a generation special fighter.

    To me, Lopez possessed all the attributes of an all time great but never...
  22. A Few Fights Falling Under the Radar This Week

    This is a huge boxing week. On US television alone, there are five separate televised cards on Friday and Saturday. Its a kind of dream weekend for hardcore fans like myself.

    With so many fights,...
  23. Re: Barclay's Center is Pushing Hard to Land a Floyd Mayweather Fight

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if Mayweather fights in New York in 2015.

    Yes he would take a hit on the taxes. But he also wants to market his brand. And what better way to do that then stage one...
  24. Re: Rigo Gets W In the "Protect Yourself At All Times" Fight in Macau

    I am very interested to see where Rigo goes from here now that this fight is over. His contract with Top Rank has now expired and he is a promotional free agent. Top Rank and Rigo have shown zero...
  25. Re: Glen Tapia will face Salim Larbi in the undercard of #GolovkingGeale

    I am glad to see Tapia remain on this card and remain busy following a layoff after that brutal fight with Kirkland. I am not sure what kind of threat Larbi will pose but he's not a bad opponent on...
