  1. Re: Potential Mayweather vs. Golovkin Is Only Legit If Contested At 160

    A few words about Mayweather-Golovkin: it will never happen. Mayweather isn't bold enough to come up to middleweight, and Golovkin should never agree to fight at 154. That would cheapen it.

    A...
  2. Re: Roman Gonzalez - Fan Friendly Despite Network Indifference

    I am pleased to say that Gonzalez earned a new fan (me) with his performance in his HBO debut. The similarities in Gonzalez's and Arguello's games are eerie. The way Gonzalez hooks off the jab and...

    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    Well said, Radam. At 130 lbs, Mayweather was fun and exciting to watch. In terms of accomplishments, I would put him on par with Arguello in that weight class (I think he beats El Flaco Explosivo...

    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    I actually scored the fight 115-113 for Mayweather. I was a little surprised by my scorecard, because I thought Mayweather was the clear winner, but there were stretches when Mayweather did...

    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    I think this article puts things in proper perspective. I can see Mayweather beating a few of the guys on this list, but not very many. His defensive ability would keep him competitive, but these...
  7. Re: TONY AYALA JR.: THE GLORY OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN, THE HORROR OF WHAT WAS

    A sad story of wasted talent. I've watched a number of Ayala's early fights, and he was a real fighter. He had all the tools. I think he could have competed against all of the Four Kings. It's a...
  8. Re: Alvarez Impressed Against Kirkland... But Don't Discount Style Factor

    I was impressed by Alvarez's performance. He seemed to keep a cool head in the face of Kirkland's pressure. The fight-ending combination that he threw shows that he was thinking. While I don't...

    Re: The Superfight Without a Heart

    Good point about Mayweather Sr. While I strongly dislike his personality, I give him credit for showing a sense of urgency and trying to inject some passion into his son's performance. He urged his...

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

    I don't see any way that a fight comes along and eclipses the magnitude of the event that was the first Ali-Frazier fight. It was a different era, and boxing was in a much higher place in the...

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

    And the disclosure of Pacquiao's supposed right shoulder injury is disappointing. I didn't see anything in the fight to indicate that the shoulder was compromised; he missed wildly with both hands. ...

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

    This was clearly no "Fight of the Century" (that occurred on March 8, 1971). It wasn't even as entertaining as De La Hoya-Trinidad. I had hope that because both men have obviously slowed down a...
  13. Re: Hopkins looking ahead, not at 20-year reunion of first world championship

    I didn't grow to fully appreciate Hopkins until a few years ago. Sure, he was a more entertaining fighter in his early and mid 30s, but you have to really admire the subtleties that he implemented...
  14. Re: The Hauser Report: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Bryant Jennings

    It just goes to show you where heavyweight boxing falls in line on the American landscape. Klitschko is from Ukraine, is a former Olympic gold medalist, and fights mostly in Europe against largely...
  15. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: What A Win Means For Pacquiao

    Also, Hagler was 62-2-2 going into the Leonard fight. The loss to Watts was considered a hometown decision, but the loss to Monroe was the correct decision (I've watched both fights).
  16. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: What A Win Means For Pacquiao

    There's no question that it would be a career-defining win for Pacquaio if he is able to pull off the upset. I view Jones' career as similar to Mayweather's, in that there are a lot of opponents...
  17. Re: McCarson Ringside: Crawford Assesses, Destroys Dulorme

    I grow more impressed with Crawford each time I see him. He has a calm and clinical demeanor in the ring, but once he knew he had Dulorme in trouble, he became a finisher. The same thing happened...
  18. Re: 30 Years Later We Appreciate How Hagler And Hearns Elevated Each Other

    Thanks Radam. It's good to be back.
  19. Re: 30 Years Later We Appreciate How Hagler And Hearns Elevated Each Other

    A couple things...

    First, Hagler's record going into the Hearns fight was 60-2-2, not 62-2-2 as was stated. I like my minutiae to be accurate.

    Second, it was not only due to Hearns' ego and...
  20. Re: Don't Blame The Referee For Lomachenko Being Bullied By Salido

    Frank is absolutely correct. Anyone who follows the sport closely enough knows that Laurence Cole is a terrible referee, and that the only reason he continues to get high-profile assignments...
  21. Re: Floyd Mayweather Picks May 3 Foe; Marcos Maidana Gets The Gig

    Congratulations to Maidana. He deserves a big payday. That being said, he doesn't have a chance in hell of winning this fight. He had to fight the fight of his life to beat "Floyd-light" in his...
  22. Re: Maybe Pacquiao Should Fight Bradley Again If He Beats Rios

    At this point in his career, who else is there for Pacquiao to fight? With the Cold War still going on, Pacquiao's list of potential opponents shrinks. Forget Marquez. Bradley is probably the only...
  23. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    While I certainly don't agree with all of Leonard's actions, can we not also say that many of Duran's actions could also be classified as "classless"? Giving Leonard the finger, using vulgar...
  24. Re: Thomas Hearns Would Be A Star Of Incredible Magnitude Today

    I too watched the Hearns-Kinchen fight for the first time a couple years ago, and I thought Kinchen did enough to win. Not a great performance by Hearns; he seemed disinterested, but showed a lot of...
  25. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    I cannot recall exactly where I read that Duran said it, however if you do a Google search for "Roberto Duran Ken Buchanan" the second listing that comes up does contain a quote that says that Duran...
