  1. Re: Usual Behaviors Of A Pug Just After Getting Humiliated Or Kayoed

    I remember on HBO in the 80's, Marlon Starling got knocked out by Tomas Molinares by a shot that was just after the bell, and in the interview didn't remember being knocked down, let alone knocked...

    Re: What are you watching tonight

    Good corner stoppage. Ramirez was brave but completely outgunned, and was on his way to absorbing another boatload of clean shots and getting knocked out. Mares looked good tonight.
  3. Re: Source: Mayweather, Haymon and Espinoza Given Ultimatums by Moonves

    Damn, prescient. Sadly.

    I don't know squat about this guy, so the characterization that he had it 'all' was a stretch, but figuring he's young and signed to a deal is a hell of a start....

    Re: What Are Your Favorite Boxing Tied-in Songs

    Very True. He was faded at that juncture, having lost a series of fights and on a skid (as an aside, the movie 'The Hurricane' went even further and implied he was robbed against Giardello; think JG...
  5. Re: Source: Mayweather, Haymon and Espinoza Given Ultimatums by Moonves

    Great posts all around. I think Floyd shakes this off pretty easily, and think his stint in the joint was far more traumatic than this (pure non-insider speculation here obviously). Radam's post -...

    Re: What Are Your Favorite Boxing Tied-in Songs

    Liston was phenomenal. Revisiting boxing history, I wish we'd have seen him and Frazier in that 1967/68 range. Leotis Martin beat him, but I suspect he was a pretty underrated dude. He never fought...

    Re: What Are Your Favorite Boxing Tied-in Songs

    The best ring entrance I've ever seen is Tyson against Spinks. The music was something from A Clockwork Orange after Spinks came in to Kenny Loggins.

    Re: Favorite Boxing Movies

    The fight sequences are always corny. One guy hands at his side getting pummeled then he miraculasouly comes back and pummels the other guy, hands at his side. In one of the Rocky movies, he was...
  10. Re: Breaking: Prince Naseem Hamed elected to Boxing Hall of Fame

    I never dug Hamed's style (personal, not boxing), and he always looked like a prick to me, but I definitely tuned in when he was fighting. Karma might have got him. As I recall, he went to the clink...

    Re: Favorite Boxing Movies

    Haha, Will Smith as Ali was awful. I saw that in the theater with my ex fiancé, and the movie was about 3 hours long, and she never forgave me. That film was odd also as it ended with Zaire. Never...
  13. Re: Check Out New Boxing Short Doc From Eric Drath

    The visual of the Commissioner explaining double jeopardy to Resto, and his wearing the expression of Ed Norton in Primal Fear is priceless. I need to re-watch AITR. Hopefully it's on YouTube. One...
  14. Re: Check Out New Boxing Short Doc From Eric Drath

    I only saw the documentary, and thought Resto was a feeble, pathetic, and broken man. My recollection of it's that neither Resto nor Lewis came off as sympathetic figures (perhaps this is...
  15. Re: Check Out New Boxing Short Doc From Eric Drath

    That was a brutally violent card. Collins-Resto happened on the undercard of Duran-Moore, a fight in which Moore endured a savage beating (a completely incompetent referee too, who seemed to have...
  16. Re: Hopkins Hints Heavily At Fighting Again, Talks Golovkin

    The non-hardcore boxing public has a very short memory, borderline amnesia, so it's a fight that could be packaged and sold easily. Hopkins would have no chance; it would boil down to an over/under...

    Re: Props To Tim Lane And His Guy Algieri

    I didn't watch. My provider, Verizon FiOS, wanted $70+ for this. Out of principle, I simply won't pay that. No can do. Thus I followed the espn twitter feed. My biggest surprise was seeing those...
  21. Re: Chris Algieri Is Charismatic And Tough... But Is He A PPV Fighter?

    Mortcola's the EF Hutton of this place. The man talks, you listen.

    I think Algieri will acquit himself well Saturday. I don't think he'll win, but I don't think he's just gonna get bombed out...
  22. Re: Wladimir Klitschko Would've Been A Title Threat In Any Era

    I'm with Mortcola on this. Wladimir's definitely not crowd pleasing, and he'll not be mistaken for Ali versus Cleveland Williams ever, but the guy's 21-0 since the Brewster debacle. All prime time,...
  23. Re: HE'S A WLAAAD MAN: Wladimir Klitschko KOs Pulev in Round 5

    Agreed Brownsuger. It was artless as you aptly described but was a reasonably exciting fight. It often had the look of a toughman fight. Those were definitely the most rabbit punches I can remember...

    Kovalev's looking to get paid next. Think he made $500k for this (believe I heard/read that, could be off). Hopefully he remains active, continues to dominate ala Golovkin, build his brand, then a...

    Floyd - Pacquiao will never happen. A guy will walk on Pluto before that happens.

    The upshot from last night is you have arguably the top 3 P4P guys in the sport all within the same approximate...
