    Re: Monday Mashings: Kovalev, Gonzalez and Diaz

    Good call. Pascal v Gonzalez is the fight of my year so far. But I hadn't thought about it that way.
  2. Re: Why Amir Khan Is No Match for Floyd Mayweather

    Mayweather isn't looking for the most competitive fight, he's looking for the most compelling. Had Algieri won, he would have made an ideal opponent for demographic reasons. From the chatter around...

    Re: Fortuna Beats Vasquez, via UD, in Brooklyn

    Fortuna looked classy from my seat around the Algieri camp. It's difficult to look powerful against Vazquez, who has one of those giant heads that seem impervious to blows. I heard he's never been...
  4. Re: Avila Manifesto: No More Coverage of Al Haymon or Mayweather Fights

    I agree that the media keeps the sport flowing. And, I find your stand laudable.

    Now, personally, I'm waiting for some flow on Alvarez-Kirkland! I'm infinitely more excited about this Saturday's...
  5. Re: Sadam Ali's Ring Generalship Beats Chia Santana in NYC

    I've seen Ali's last three fights live with the old man, and although (obs) he's gone 3-0, he's failed to impress father or son.

    The fireworks in his fists are the kind you buy at a drug store in...

    Re: THERE WAS BLOOD! Matthysse Defeats Provodnikov

    In a 15-round fight, Provodnikov would have won.

    If fights lasted 100 rounds, Provodnikov would be king of boxing.

    But in a 12-round world, Provodnikov will never get there. I love him, but I...
  7. Re: NASTY NEBRASKAN Crawford Stops Dulorme in The Sixth

    Against Beltran, Bud went southpaw in round one (?) two at the latest, and stayed there.

    Against Dulorme, he didn't switch once, right?

    In consecutive fights, he's two different fighters.

    Re: Experts Predict #ProvodnikovMatthysse

    Matthysse all the way.

    Matthysse has fought and beat the best whereas Ruslan has only fought the best. And, Ruslan has looked slower in each of his last couple fights; I'm afraid he's not aging...

    Re: TSS Q n A With JEAN PASCAL

    I was in the arena as Kovalev obliterated my favorite fighter, Bernard Hopkins. Now, I'm preaching Kovalev with the enthusiasm of the newly converted. This guy is the real Ivan Drago. "I will break...
  12. Re: Thurman Cleared The Bar Of Expectation, Barely, Against Guerrero

    I agree. This fight reminded me of David Lemieux vs. Rosado. Like Rosado, I don't think Guerrero is anything but a tough gatekeeper fighter at this stage. And like the young, heralded, hard-hitting...

    Re: Broner Beats Molina On First PBC on NBC Show

    Wrong fight for Molina. Broner doesn't like to brawl and has the reflexes and speed to ensure he doesn't have to. A one-sided exhibition for a guy I don't particularly love to extol, but let's be...

    Re: Lemieux Batters Game Rosado, Scores TKO10 Win

    Hell of a 4th round. Had us all standing at the Barclays after an hour plus of boos and cat calls.

    I arrived at the arena at the start of the main undercard and man oh man the crowd was sour....
  15. Re: Lemieux on Rosado Scrap: "I'm Going There To Destroy!"

    I'll go, why not? And I have to get the taste of Garcia-Salka out of my eyes.

    Where are the 2-for-1 offers?

    Good looks.
  16. Re: BUD SMOKES BELTRAN Crawford Too Slick For Challenger, Gets UD12 Win

    Radam piques my interest. I don't know one way or another, and I've heard Radam (I don't know whether 2nd or 3rd person is more app) cast similar light on other fighters, not necessarily falsely.

    Re: Undercard Info For Hopkins-Kovalev

    Re: Bernard Hopkins is the future of boxing

    Kovalev does show patience. And a hard jab, and a jab is bound to land.

    He throws straight short punches, which like jabs are bound to land, from time to time.

    And his technique is good, so...

    I'm going to savor Nov 8 because I believe this is Hopkins' last fight. And whether he goes out in glorious victory or in noble defeat, I'm going to stand up and applaud when the final bell sounds. ...

    Re: Predictions for Algieri-Pacquiao?

    Provodnikov has entertained the crowds, but it's led to an overestimation of his abilities. I'm tempted to go so far as to say: he's done --taken too many blows. His style's not built to last.

    So...

    Algieri is an interesting fighter. It's great to see him interviewed here.

    He has always impressed with his poise and intelligence. His comments in the ring following the Provodnikov fight were...

    I don't disagree that Rigo looks unbeatable for now, and it makes perfect sense that Roc would identify him as the next best fighter in the game. I can't see him losing to anyone besides Donaire, and...
