  1. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Ok guys. I am convinced! After watching countless tape of both guys GGG just seems to be superior in all but the following: Level of opposition. However, he appears to rise to the occasion every time...
  2. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    You make a very convincing argument Mort and for the most part you are correct. GGG 'appears' to be the more technically gifted fighter of the two. I am seeing something deeper here though and who...
  3. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Canelo is good. Very good in fact. No, he certainly has not gotten any better since the Mayweather fight but he has grown in confidence and that is apparent when you dissect his last fights since...
  4. Re: Canelo Alvarez a One-Punch Smash in Las Vegas

    Looking at Mayweathers body of work against Canelo and Cotto and seeing these fights now I am slowly but surely reveiwing my opinion and placing TBE even higher on the all time Pound for pound list....
  5. Re: Canelo Alvarez a One-Punch Smash in Las Vegas

    Great observations mort. I did not buy this fight because I think the pure fans are being short changed. Yes, Khan has the Cojones for moving up in weight but he had a great incentive of $$$ and...
  6. Re: Canelo's Physicality Will Overwhelm Khan's Speed

    Canelo wins by late KO in the 10th. Khan takes a horrible beating between the 7th - 10th rounds but his heart wont let him succumb or surrender. Khan got bullied by Algieri and Lamont Petersen. I do...
  7. Re: Lewis Teaches Fury A Lesson Without Making A Fist

    I met Lennox at a photo shoot in London in 1993 just before he fought Oliver MCall the first time. He was leaving with his entourage and I called out "Hey Champ" ! I was in College and wanted an...
  8. Re: DeGale successfully defends his title with a Unanimous Decision victory over Bute

    This fight made up for the absolutely dreadful Klitchko/Fury fight. Scores should have been a lot closer however. I saw great skill from both fighters and the body punching was superb. Bute throws a...
  9. Re: Canelos' Physicality Overwhelms Cotto's Boxing

    Watching this fight makes me put Floyd at a whole new level despite his critics. Floyds fights against Cotto and Alvarez were competitive but he clearly was the superior fighter in both instances. He...

    Re: Canelo vs Cotto - Guts Before Glory?

    Cotto wins via UD. Canelo is good but lacks imagination and creativity. Good power and great combinations. Cotto is now a much better and more confident fighter. Only question is does he still have...
  11. Re: Good Boy Gets Stopped; Game Lemieux TKO'd By Golovkin in NYC

    Well, I expected this. It really was a fight between an excellent boxer/puncher with thudding power and a capable banger with confidence. I look at triple GGGs resume and it speaks for itself. All B...
  12. Re: Bradley An Ace, Till Late in 12th; Weird Ending Mars HBO Main Event

    Bradley did OK with a back pedaling Vargas who really should have imposed or at least attempted to impose himself on Bradley. P. Russell though a great referee should consider retirement. Mistakes...
  13. Re: Slight Return: Andre Ward Crushes Paul Smith In the Ninth

    Well, who has Golovkin fought really ??? Certainly no world beaters. Now Kovalev - different story. His resume sparkles compared to Golovkins. I looked for the subtle nuances of Wards considerable...
  14. Re: MY B.E.T: Even If Rust Is Present, Ward Too Talented For Smith

    A good performance by Ward. He was caught flush on at least two occasions but took the punches well. His opposition tonight was no less than Golovkins prior opponents and in my opinion Ward is still...
  15. Re: Slight Return: Andre Ward Crushes Paul Smith In the Ninth

    A good performance by Ward. He was caught flush on at least two occasions but took the punches well. His opposition tonight was no less than Golovkins prior opponents and in my opinion Ward is still...
  16. Re: Khan Edges Out Algieri in Solid Scrap, in Brooklyn

    Very good fight with not much between these two in my opinion. Could have easily been scored a draw IMHO. Khan certainly has defensive flaws with his head straight up when he backs out. I still find...

    Re: The Greatness of Floyd Mayweather

    Interesting article and much kudos to the writer for the in depth research on past and current fighters. I hate to criticize any fighters style just because it takes a lot of cojones to get into that...
  18. Re: Golovkin Is Too Strong For Any Current Middleweight To Outbox

    Great feature as usual from Frank L. I am not a triple G believer. Well, I do believe he is a very good fighter with good power and very good punch placement but I need to see him fight without being...
  19. Re: Alvarez Impressed Against Kirkland... But Don't Discount Style Factor

    I thought Kirkland was made to order for Alvarez. Canelo did execute well though and finished Kirkland just like I expected him to. Any comparisons with Floyd are misplaced. Two different fighters....

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

    Mort - great analysis as usual but I have to respectfully disagree. Mayweathers magic is his innate ability to slow a fight down. He also switches up the power on those right hands and so the...

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

    Not a fight that will stand out in the annals of boxing history as a great 'action' fight but nonetheless this was a superb performance by a boxing master. Its funny how people criticize Floyds...
  22. Re: Quillin Power Touches Lee, But Judges See A Draw

    Quillan looked okay for the time he took off. Good, absorbing fight with two way action Slow at times but definitely a good fight. Meanwhile Lamont Petersen just got robbed.
  23. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    @Brad - I guess my memories telegraph my age:). Hearns looked really wound up and tight while Leonard was loose and relaxed. For a guy that lean Hearns wingspan was awesome. He had a freakish build...
  24. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Great comments all around. Shows the wealth of boxing knowledge in this forum is unrivaled ! I thought this might be an interesting footnote/question for you guys. Whats the most memorable super...
  25. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Franks on target again. I thought Leonard/Hearns 1 was comparable but in reality Leonard/Hearns 1 was indeed an authentic super fight between two athletes in their absolute prime. A fighters super...
