  1. Re: Pascal Wants Random Testing For PEDs, Buck Stops With Kovalev Promoter Duva, Though

    Jean Pascal is the Andre Berto of the light heavyweight division. Good physicality, a game that doesn’t hang together - plus, not quite the relative power for the weight class compared to Berto. He...
  2. Re: Jab-Happy Wilder BOXES His Way To WBC Belt, Win Over Stiverne

    I too am happy for Commish, with whom I’ve spent lots of time watching and talking fights, though not about Wilder. I see this as a qualified success and proof for Wilder. Tyson was a much more...

    Re: Happy 2,000 Post To The Commish

    Waiting for that book, Commish. Your writing and bookish’ storytelling’ is unique, insider, class...
  5. Re: Why Deonaty Wilder Will Beat Bermane Stiverne

    Nope - Mostly that the commish is making predictions as though Wilder has some once in a lifetime ability. He might be one of the greatest punchers in history, a Foreman, Liston, Marciano, Shavers...
  6. Re: Why Deonaty Wilder Will Beat Bermane Stiverne

    The Stiverne loss might be significant, might be a freak thing. But I have legitimate doubts about whether Wilder has an inkling of a plan B, what to do if his seek and destroy bombs - which have...
  7. Re: Why Deonaty Wilder Will Beat Bermane Stiverne

    Commish - Maybe the King loss was a fluke. And as for Arreola, Cris rocked everyone he ever fought, and beat most of them, up until Klitschko. Stiverne is only one who took it and came back to...
  8. Re: Why Deonaty Wilder Will Beat Bermane Stiverne

    Watching an amateur Deontay, I see things that might be meaningful one day. We all know what the amateurs are for - growing up and getting experience. But the times I see Deontay clipped on the...

    Re: Donald Curry and the Infinite Sadness

    My biggest WTF-was-I-thinking recently was David Price. 6'8", agile, pinpoint punching and apparently great power against his early-career showcases. Then we find out that a light tap from Tony...

    Re: Donald Curry and the Infinite Sadness

    Mine was Donald Curry as well. Briefly, my hero, the most perfect technical boxer, with power, I had seen to that point. He is a perfect example of what falls apart when you lose your mental edge. ...
  11. Re: WOODS: I'm Liking Sergey Kovalev For Fighter of the Year

    Kovalev for the above reasons. Lomachenko wd be premature, but is gonna be there if he learned what he needed to from Salido and shows that he is truly ready for a pro arsenal coming at him; GGG is...
  12. Re: ALGIERI: "I'm Fine, Just Disappointed"; Plus, Insights From Lara, Berto, Rooney, Katz

    Yup! To be a sweet SCIENTIST means understanding physics, geometry, psychology, and existential philosophy - you create your nature by the choices you make - and a jazz master. Thinking quick under...
  13. Re: ALGIERI: "I'm Fine, Just Disappointed"; Plus, Insights From Lara, Berto, Rooney, Katz

    Doc Mortcola is pissed. For the record, I picked Pac in this fight, and only wanted C-Al, my home boy, to make a good showing. First, one of you geniuses called Chris a clown with an education. Even...
  14. Re: COMMISSIONER’S CORNER: The Big “E”—It Just Can’t Be Taught

    Brilliant article, Commish.

    Gotta hand it to C-Al for taking the opportunity, and lord knows he worked hard in training. But the stuff he needed to not just win, but to put on a good show, be...
  15. Re: MANNY THE MAULER IS BACK: Pacquiao Dominates Algieri in Macau

    Well, my favorite fighter won. And except for the knockdowns, Chris fought with smarts, class, great anticipation, and big balls..Few people have ever made manny miss that much, or landed as clearly...

    Re: Algieri weigh in

    You’re talking way too much smack. What are you nervous about?
  17. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    Some legit points. I don’t like his bad habits. But certain things work for him. I don’t think his home field advantage affects his opponents accuracy. He is very much like a heavyweight Hearns,...
  18. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    1. “Nearly”
    2. Ali got hit more by Chuck Wepner than WK has gotten hit in the last decade. Ali had a great chin, and his mastery of making ‘em miss was briefly during the 60’s.
    3. They are all...
  19. Re: Chris Algieri Is Charismatic And Tough... But Is He A PPV Fighter?

    I used to give inkblot tests and related “projective” tests for a living. Basically, show the subject/patient something that has no specific meaning or identity, or one that is hidden from them, and...
  20. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    Then again, given that WK was a much more defensively effective fighter than Lennox Lewis, there is a better chance that he too, like several others as well, would just neutralize Tua, who wilted...
  21. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    Thats OK. Peace out for sure. Anyway, I make a lot out of the conquering of anxiety, especially when it results in high effectiveness. As for the punch angles and head movement, and finding...
  22. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    Beautiful work, F-Lo. The underrating of WK is ridiculous. Frank Bruno? Are you kidding? Bruno couldn’t avoid being hit, and had perhaps four or five punches he was capable of throwing. WK...
  23. Re: HE'S A WLAAAD MAN: Wladimir Klitschko KOs Pulev in Round 5

    I believe you. But I don’t think it was because Toney would have won the fight. I think Steward saw it as a low-value fight in which his guy wouldn’t have looked good - worse even, for those who...
  24. Re: HE'S A WLAAAD MAN: Wladimir Klitschko KOs Pulev in Round 5

    Perhaps. Perhaps that’s just a fable, an apocryphal tale. But Toney was never a force in the division during their reign. Toney - like Mayweather, Hector Camacho, prime RJJ - could have made any big,...
  25. Re: HE'S A WLAAAD MAN: Wladimir Klitschko KOs Pulev in Round 5

    As for Vitali taking on the tougher fighters......? Check boxrec. Wlad hasn’t avoided anyone, and the brothers’ toughest opponents were among those they BOTH fought - Sanders, Peter. It is true...
