  1. Re: Literary Notes: Battling Nelson vs. Ad Wolgast

    Very interesting read, I have always had an interest in the history of the sport in the early 1900's. There are certainly some great fighters as well as stories from that time.
  2. Re: There were 157 boxing shows worldwide in January. What do we make of this?

    I have noticed myself in the last 15 to 20 years seemingly fewer and fewer promoters willing to do local shows.

    Growing up in Cleveland in the 90's, there were club shows that went on not at a...
  3. Re: Bell Centre Report – Kovalev Spells Out Why They Call Him “The Krusher”

    It was not remotely competitive. Pascal showed signs of being shot against Gonzalez and clearly was not the same fighter he once was. Kovalev could have finished him much earlier but carried him,...

    Re: Danny Garcia Moves Up The TBB Rankings

    Miami of Ohio was our big rival. My brother went there, made for a nice sibling rivalry. And once attended an OU football game against Miami of Ohio when Ben Roethlisberger torched our defense. But...

  6. Re: Garcia Esapes Close Call With Guerrero. Is Amir Khan Next?

    The WBC has put Khan in a good position unknowingly. He now has leverage to use in the Kell Brook negotiations.

    There is probably too much money as well as lack of options for Khan-Brook not to...

    Re: Danny Garcia Moves Up The TBB Rankings

    The way I rank is based on performance/competition faced/wins/losses. One mistake in my opinion some make is ranked based on potential and not merit.

    Danny Garcia should be ranked higher, in my...

    Re: Suggestions for HBO in 2016

    Also regarding the Haymon ban remember that HBO has also once banned another promoter...Don King.

    To say HBO disliked King would be an understatement. Many felt the two would never do business...

    Re: Suggestions for HBO in 2016

    Indications at the moment at least are that Wade's team wants the fight. And from what I have heard about Haymon and how he handles his fighters with some exceptions of course (Quillin-Korobov being...
  10. Re: Kovalev vs. Ward: The Fight I'm Most Looking Forward To In 2016

    Barrera is definitely a live dog. He is extremely athletic and showed in his last fight that he has made tremendous improvement under Abel Sanchez. This is not a gimme fight for Ward at all.

    Re: Suggestions for HBO in 2016

    HBO has a new person in charge and maybe just maybe the Haymon embargo can be lifted.

    I don't think HBO will be showing the PBC anytime soon but on a case by case basis should look to get Haymon...

    Re: Suggestions for HBO in 2016

    Good doc, I do fear you are correct. There is still a lot of money on the table for a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch.

    My main point regarding the rematch is the fight will play out exactly like the...
  13. Re: Garcia vs Guerrero - Looking At The Scorecards

    I had it 116-112 myself for Garcia. It was even on my card after six at 57-57 and then Garcia took control during the second half of the fight.
  14. Re: PBC at the Staples Center - Quick Results

    I thought in that fight that Garcia landed the harder cleaner more effective shots in the majority of the rounds. Fans do seem split 50/50 on this fight and scoring is very subjective in this sport...

    Suggestions for HBO in 2016

    HBO finds itself at a bit of a crossroads in 2016 with the sport of boxing. With the advent of PBC and boxing showing up free tv in the US, HBO must find a way to counter. They have a new man in...
  16. Re: The Heavyweight Division Just Got Murkier

    Charles Martin is of course advised by Al Haymon. Haymon is not going to let that belt leave his stable. The reason is a fight that can be billed down the line as a unification fight against Deontay...
  17. Re: SHOBOX – The New Generation Fri - Complete Weigh-in Results

    A couple observations from this card...

    Bakhityar Eyubov can punch. He is raw but has legit one punch kayo power. I'd like to see him develop a jab and learn that not every punch has to be thrown...
  18. Re: Joe Parker. Another Rising Heavyweight Contender.

    Your guess is absolutely correct. I graduated from Ohio University in 2002 with an economics degree. When I was there, I remember heading out to some of the many bars on campus to watch the 2001...

    Re: Bam Bam Rios and the curse of Unretirement

    Top Rank is a master of getting the most out of their fighters and cashing out just the right time.

    Rios is done as a top level fighter. The punishment inside the ring and the battles with weight...
  20. Re: A Loser on the Gridiron, Dominic Breazeale is a Winner in the Ring

    I just posted about one reason why I like Joseph Parker is how fluid he looks inside the ring.

    And one reason I have never been sold on Breazeale is well he does not look so fluid inside the ring...
  21. Re: PBC at the Staples Center - Quick Results

    Garcia seems to be in a lot of fights were the scoring is hotly debated among-st fans. For example, fans were all over the place on the Peterson fight (I for one did have Garcia winning and doing so...
  22. Re: Joe Parker. Another Rising Heavyweight Contender.

    I have seen Parker fight a few times and think he could be a force down the line in the heavyweight division. The first time I saw him I remember thinking to myself the guy just looks so fluid in the...
  23. Re: Heavyweight prospect Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller on ShoBox

    Miller is very talented but I wonder about his dedication to the sport. He has that Chris Arreola look about him and frequently enters his fights not appearing in good condition. Thus far natural...
  24. Re: Pacquiao Is Whistling Past The Grave If He Thinks Mayweather Fights Him Again

    It already happened once as a money grab and guess what. It will happen again.

    Mayweather-Pacquiao 2 is inevitable. From all sides, the money will be too good to pass up. Plus this time it is...
  25. Re: Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather, Jr.......a stroll in the park for "Money May"?

    First of all, I don't really follow MMA too closely. I am familiar with the names and understand the sport as a casual. I don't buy the PPV's, only read about what happened later on. The only name I...
