  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    Yes, Leonard was a control freak (though not nearly as much as our current pound-for-pound king) and usually wanted things his way. I'm not denying it. And yes, what he did to Hagler at his...
  8. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    I say that Duran had trouble with Buchanan because Duran himself said that Buchanan was the toughest opponent he ever faced. If you don't believe me, look it up. Yes, Duran was comfortably ahead...
  9. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    Duran took the immediate rematch because he was offered 8 million. Carlos Eleta wasn't going to turn down that type of money, and Leonard was the only opponent who could guarantee that type of...
  10. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    Whether you liked or disliked Leonard's showboating and clowning, let's not forget that while all this was happening, Leonard was also outpunching Duran at nearly every turn. When Duran thought he...
  11. Re: Thomas Hearns Would Be A Star Of Incredible Magnitude Today

    Well said. Hearns would be the best fighter in the world if he were fighting today. There isn't a single fighter between 147 and 175 that I would pick to beat him (a prime Hopkins maybe, but not...
  12. Re: Duran Should Never Again Answer Why He Quit During Rematch With Leonard

    I believe that Duran had a moment of temporary insanity. He couldn't handle the fact that Leonard was humiliating him, so he threw up his hands and walked away. Nobody laughs at Roberto Duran. My...

    Re: The Shadow of Pacquiao Looms Over Marquez

    If Ortiz is a star, then the requirements for stardom have seriously become diluted. Yeah, he's a good looking kid and he has a nice smile, although he comes across to me as somewhat phony. He has...

    Re: The Shadow of Pacquiao Looms Over Marquez

    It looks like a good card, but what in the hell has Victor Ortiz done to merit a title shot? He got his jaw busted and lost to Josesito Lopez over a year ago, and that gets him a title shot? Absurd.

    Re: The Shadow of Pacquiao Looms Over Marquez

    You are correct in what Lederman said, however, that doesn't mean the judge didn't botch it. Professional boxing judges mess up all the time, as you can see by the questionable scorecards that are...

    Re: The Shadow of Pacquiao Looms Over Marquez

    It's not a myth. You should be docked a point for each knockdown. Since Marquez was knocked down three times, the round should have been scored 10-6. That is how the Ten Point Must System works. ...

    Re: The Shadow of Pacquiao Looms Over Marquez

    Marquez is a sure-fire hall of famer, and I respect him immensely. However, he should have stopped complaining about getting "robbed" against Pacquiao a long time ago. If one judge scores the first...
  18. Re: Documentarian Drath Looks At "No Mas" Fight, Leonard-Duran Rivalry

    Hearns ALWAYS went out on his shield. There was no quit in that guy. I'm very much looking forward to this documentary, even if it doesn't cover any new ground.
  19. Re: Golovkin Is "99%" Sure He Could Beat Mayweather

    This fight will never take place, but if it did, Golovkin would bludgeon Mayweather. I doubt Mayweather would move up to face Martinez, let alone a killer who is still relatively unknown to the...
  20. Re: RINGSIDE Chavez Jr. Gets Gift Decision Over Vera

    While it was not the worst decision I have ever seen, I thought Vera did enough to win (or get a draw at the very least). I did not see Chavez as the winner, and I certainly did not see him winning...
  21. Re: Teddy Atlas "Guarantees" We Will See C.J. Ross Judge Again

    I like Atlas, and I enjoyed his book. Generally speaking, I enjoy his commentary and agree with much of what he says. He's probably right that C.J. Ross will be back judging fights. And while C.J....

    Re: Mayweather's Brilliance Is Blinding

    Good points, Dave. If Mayweather wouldn't fight Paul Williams, I can't see him wanting any part of Thomas Hearns. The worst part about it is that when you look at all those guys that Mayweather...

    Re: Mayweather's Brilliance Is Blinding

    A fight in England against Khan would bring a big payday and probably do good PPV numbers, but us hardcore fans know that fight would be a mismatch. On one hand, Mayweather might actually score a...

    Re: Mayweather's Brilliance Is Blinding

    It was an impressive performance by Mayweather, given the fact that he was taking on a bigger, stronger, and younger opponent. However, just like most Mayweather performances (probably since the...
  25. Re: Oscar De La Hoya Admits Self Into Treatment

    I can't believe anyone is actually talking about De La Hoya fighting again. Are you guys for real? That guy was a hollowed-out skeleton when he got pummeled by Pacquiao nearly five years ago. He...
