  1. Re: Admit it, You Liked Fury's Center Ring Ali Imitation Toward Wilder

    Interesting - friends with Eddie FB - gonna get more from him about this. Maybe Fury is learning some legit tricks.
  2. Re: Admit it, You Liked Fury's Center Ring Ali Imitation Toward Wilder

    I like marinating analogies. And maybe I’m just in a bad mood lately. No training for over a month. But I feel cynical about the current state. I’m happy to be won over, because I love loving...
  3. Re: It's More Dangerous For Roy Jones To Fail Compared To Manning And Bryant

    Sorry Radam - I shoot my rant and I hit send. I don’t call my editor for TSS posts (he works hard to keep me sounding sane on paper). But I know its annoying.

    Re: geeks - I DID reference the...
  4. Re: Admit it, You Liked Fury's Center Ring Ali Imitation Toward Wilder

    I believe that Fury at heart is a born, fearless fighter. He’s just terrible in terms of boxing skills, and wins by audacity and energy. Which are entertaining. But anyone of heart, busy-ness and...
  5. Re: Guerrero's Guns Aren't Big Enough To Hold Off Garcia

    Despite Garcia’s run of wins, I have always thought he is overrated. While he has improved since the Khan fight, in which he landed a hail-Mary hook with his eyes closed, there is still something...
  6. Re: Wilder Erases Amateur Mistakes Making Him the Ultimate Wildcard

    Good points, Radam. The question I can’t get past, is, if it weren’t for that huge right hand, which seems to get the job done most of the time after otherwise shaky performances, would he be...
  7. Re: Wilder Still Heavyweight Kingpin - Complete Results From The Barclays Center

    Shoulder Roll - Even though I don’t always agree with where you land, you usually arrive there from a superior knowledge of boxing. But I’m confused by your enthusiasm for the advent of enthusiastic...
  8. Re: Wilder Still Heavyweight Kingpin - Complete Results From The Barclays Center

    I’m glad DaveB and Radam see the light. Maybe it will bring me out of my boxing funk.
  9. Re: Wilder Still Heavyweight Kingpin - Complete Results From The Barclays Center

    No hate. Honest opinions. I think Martin and Wilder are amateurish, and Martin doesn’t have the physical gifts or much in the way of boxing ability. It was an evening of mediocrity, with the treat...
  10. Re: Wilder Still Heavyweight Kingpin - Complete Results From The Barclays Center

    Wilder has power. Hhis movement and technique are bright green even if he is learning some new fundamentals from Breland. He would be nothing but an interesting prospect in another age. He nailed...
  11. Re: It's More Dangerous For Roy Jones To Fail Compared To Manning And Bryant

    Except, re "just getting shook up", that he is literally brain damaged from multiple severe concussions - the clinical signs don’t often show up until later. By definition, he is now brain damaged,...

    Re: Roy Jones Jr knocked the F out in Russia

    Except: Multiple concussions are close to a guarantee of depression, deteriorating intellect, and early development of tau protein deposits on the brain, a form of scarring associated with...

    Re: Roy Jones Jr knocked the F out in Russia

    Roy is bright and a good commentator. The audience has come to like seeing him at ringside. But as long as he keeps taking little breaks to fight, he is going to have a traumatic brain injury with...

    Re: Would Prime Klitschko Have Beaten Fury

    When Klitschko was in his prime, he had his humiliating losses. Just before then, he was an athletic attacker who threw combinations, body punches, and moved. A busy Klitschko, who can get past his...
  15. Re: One Can't Fight (Fury) And One Didn't (Klitschko)

    Chris L, You’re on the money. I keep saying it, but Wlad’s early fights showed great fluidity and a full arsenal of punches. He’s been motivated to maintain the safety-first wait and stalk and pounce...
  16. Re: One Can't Fight (Fury) And One Didn't (Klitschko)

    Good insights, mostly, even if I don’t completely agree. The Primo Carnera comment is just silly. Wlad was an absolute master of several aspects of the sport. Primo was nothing. I actually think...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    Damn - I tried to make it clear I wasn’t defending him anymore. All that stuff was about what MENTAL stuff can shut down a gifted champion from even trying to do what he has to do to salvage his...
  18. Re: One Can't Fight (Fury) And One Didn't (Klitschko)

    Deft head movement? His movements were twitches, they were imitations of boxing. His feints were ordinary, all the more so because he BARELY THREW MORE THAN KLITSCHKO. You guys are so happy to see...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    C’mon, Rad - we’re saying the same thing, except I’m asking a question - how much of a fighter’s identity in the ring, and his accomplishments, are psychological? I’d say lots of the top contenders...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    OK. I’m not making excuses for Klitschko here. I am appealing to the insight of guys who’ve been in the ring and know what it feels like to adjust your technique and your ATTITUDE to the fighter in...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    Rad - this is one of your coolest posts. Great rhymes. And, yes, Fury is now, I admit it, fun. But, as for skills - the guy STILL only landed, what, 80 shots in the whole fight? We can’t get...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    Domenic - I think you’re right - though Wlad was a better technician - again, watch him when he was young to see the athleticism and precision in a more active, though more naive style - Vitali was...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    Actually, no - Wlad has had seven opponents who were at least 6’5”, which Wlad himself claims he is, and two who were taller. He KO’d all but one. And, Domenic, you were right about putridity - Fury...

    Re: Tyson Fury Upsets Wladimir Klitschko

    I have such mixed feelings because I value so much of what Wladimir mastered. But in the end - and though he might fight a few more times, this is either the end or almost - Domenic is right. To...
