  1. Re: The Comeback Went Off the Rails; Now, For Mike Jones, "We'll See What Happens"

    Radam is right on - right is right. Jones has been a fan’s disappointment, but I feel for the guy. As TSS house shrink, barring any neurological problems, I see a fighter who has lost belief in...
  2. Re: Of Boxing, Fathers, And Sons, And An 'Adults Only' Trip To Barclays

    “Captain” of the boxing club at a small, formerly girls only liberal arts college; visits to and from Floyd Patterson’s gym, our trainer’s friend, for sparring and some real three rounders; “townies”...
  3. Re: Danny Garcia Destroys Rod Salka in Mismatch of the Year

    Garcia is riding a wave. He is a B fighter at best, with an A killer instinct and heart. But he got beaten cleanly by Herrera, and every big left hook he has thrown, including the one that...

    Re: Algieri Reacts To Oddsmakers

    Now, putting aside Radam for the moment, here’s my carefully considered analysis. C-Al has no empirical basis to think he can beat Pac, who is one of my all-time favorite fighters. True, C-Al has...

    Re: Algieri Reacts To Oddsmakers

    Ya know, Rad, not only are your criticisms of C-Al just fantasy falsehoods, I have looked back over your history. You always write funny poetry. But you have one of the lowest fight-picking batting...

    Re: 30 and 27 KO'sq

    Hindsight, but I honestly thought Cotto’s fundamentals would expose Martinez. Just not as dramatically. Even Martinez doesn’t blame the knee, by the way. I love Cotto. I just don’t think he is...

    They’re not ready to say “Hagler”. Soon, maybe.
  9. Re: The Similarities Between Golovkin-Geale and Tszyu-Phillips

    Skibbz - It is an savvy comparison - but GGG is a considerably more fluid two-handed combination puncher than Tzsu, though his tactics were similar. Tzsyu was stiffer in the upper body and didn’t...
  10. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    One thing I noticed is that Atlas didn't say anything about what was going on in the ring that fight - he simply satiated over and over that Anthony's record must be netter than he is, and then...
  11. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Well Commish, you know I love you. I just have to correct something. I know from personal, up-close experience that the trainer for Wendy is pulling his hair out trying to get him to do it properly...
  12. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Well, I see these days as Anthony’s amateur career since he didn’t have one. He’s getting his maturation together about how to hang in, handle danger, let his best qualities flow even under attack. ...
  13. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Facts are facts, commish. The mind is the biggest variable of all.
  14. Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    My homey, my trainer and friend, is the opening fight on tonights ESPN card. When his head is together, Showtime has real gifts of speed, combination punching power, slippery head movement, and a...

    Re: Do Violent Sports Attract Violent People?

    Too simple-minded. What is a “violent” person? One who aims to find victims, preferably those who pose no challenge but are just mushy enough, inflict pain non-consensually? Someone who buries all...

    Re: Canelo Has No True Style Identity

    I just read what Skibbz said. It is too soon to close the book on Canelo’s potential. And not being JCC is no crime - very few have ever been in that league. But then again, no one ever did what Lara...

    Re: Canelo Has No True Style Identity

    Interesting - I think lot of people were hoping even unconsciously that Canelo would take up the empty spot where JC Chavez Sr used to be. He, too, was not really fast, stayed in the midrange of his...

    Re: Canelo Beats Lara, Via Split Decision

    117-11 might have been really bad, or it might have been a clear value judgment about what is valued in boxing. Lara was MASTERFUL in his anticipation, equal slickness in moving right or left,...
  20. Re: Algieri Would LOVE To Fight Pacquiao...IF The Price Is Right

    You all know that I am an Algieri fan. Worked out with him, lots of analyzing him in the gym ring and the arena. He is kind of a prodigy, having improved 200% (approximately) in the last year,...
  21. Re: Chagaev Beats Oquendo for WBA Paper Title

    Has Oquendo ever been in a fight you'd go out of your way to watch? As for Chagaev, he looked like the real deal when he first came on the scene....and my face has begun to hurt from yawning. I...
  22. Re: Joe DeGuardia Has Started Initial Talks To Make Algieri-Pacquiao

    "With the majority concensus of the boxing press seeing Ruslan as being robbed, and much of the public divided I think the Pacquiao Provodnikov bout it still an option. Algieri will be biting off...
  23. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Good work, GreyMan - a point someone should have made and then you did - If Provodnikov could do that much damage with one punch, and failed to do any more such damage, then isn’t that evidence that...
  24. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Actually, he’s pretty relaxed and pumped about his accomplishment and being both champion and admired by the majority of the boxing world for either winning and having major cojones, or both, and...
  25. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    C’mon, Skibbz, you know more boxing than that. The winner is not decided by swelling or slices of meat torn off, unless the injury incapacitates a fighter or the ref decides enough i s enough. ...
