    Re: Povetkin Steamrolls Perez in Moscow

    I think you're right, and that's an astute observation about Kovalev. Some guys -Gabriel Ruelas, Jesus Chavez, Nigel Benn, and now Mike Perez- aren't ever quite the same after prevailing in a fight...
  2. Re: Eric Hunter and Taishan Score First Round KOs in SoCal

    What's the story with this guy Taishan guy? I'm always a sucker for these 7 foot giants that step in the ring. I was even intrigued by Valuev for a time. Taishan put this guy to sleep, but it looked...
  3. Re: Potential Mayweather vs. Golovkin Is Only Legit If Contested At 160

    If you get the chance, please do post the links, as I haven't been able to find any through a cursory search. Thanks. I did see where FM Sr. refers to Golovkin as a 'giant,' but still thinks it's a...

    Re: Povetkin Steamrolls Perez in Moscow

    You're right. That was one of the best heavyweight fights in recent years and sadly it wrecked both guys. Very tragic.
  5. Re: Potential Mayweather vs. Golovkin Is Only Legit If Contested At 160

    If Pacquiao were to call out Golovkin, that would definitely be returning with a bang. I don't quite see it though. After all, Manny lost to Floyd, thus there's no mandate, and he doesn't depict...

    Wow, TKO1. I think Perez' career ended with Mago's that November night in MSG.

    Re: Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Best Ever? Hardly

    Floyd is off the charts great. When he beat the rock solid, supreme pro Genaro Hernadez as an unseasoned guy, it was incredible (and not for nothing years later, Floyd paid for his funeral, behind...
  8. Re: Potential Mayweather vs. Golovkin Is Only Legit If Contested At 160

    You are a very smart dude, and that's an excellent point. I'd say this, if Floyd challenged Golovkin at 160, there wouldn't be any clamor for him to go 168 for Ward, etc. There really wouldn't....
  9. Re: Potential Mayweather vs. Golovkin Is Only Legit If Contested At 160

    Thank you for this article. Leonard didn't ask Hagler to fight at 154 (Marvin probably would have; when Hearns postponed their first fight due to a pinky finger injury, Hagler said he'd chop that...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    So many good points here. I recall reading that in the Maxim-Robinson fight, the temperature was 100+ degrees, and the referee had to be replaced midway through the fight. Inside the ring the...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    I'm not even a critic of Floyd, honestly. In terms of pure boxing ability, he's beyond phenomenal. And I think he easily beat Pacquiao. My point is simply that there's definitely a precedent to...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    This is an interesting debate, with good, solid points being made on both sides of the aisle. I don't have a horse in the race, so to speak. I pretty much root for great fights, ideally the best...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    There was never any real clamor in 2007 for Floyd to challenge Pavlik, and I never understood why. Yes, major height and reach disadvantage but so what. He was so technically superior that it...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    There's no comparison to Duran. He was a risk taker to the MAXIMUM. Different era of course. All those cats had to embrace risk. Anyone that claims those guys ducked everyone overlooks the big...

    Re: Time for GGG to call out Lil Floyd

    Floyd will never fight Golovkin. Although if he did, with one fell swoop, he would quell the naysayers who consider him a fraud. He'd garner respect from all corners with such a move. I'm sure he...

  17. Re: Sweet Home Alabama: Wilder Defending on Home Turf

    I agree wholeheartedly man. I'm not a big Briggs guy at this juncture, but easily a case could be made for him over Molina. Tarver too. Neither would beat DW, in my opinion, but it'd be a better...

    Drawing the 1 MIGHT be a blessing, at least as far as the odds are concerned. The morning line was 4/5, and this post position should move the needle on that. American Pharoah looks ridiculously...
  19. Re: TONY AYALA JR.: THE GLORY OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN, THE HORROR OF WHAT WAS

    Great comments all around. I remember following Ayala's comeback after his release from prison. I never knew much about him prior to that, other than the standard fare in the press. I don't even...
  20. Re: RED HOT ACTION: Canelo Steamrolls Kirkland in PPV Worthy Scrap

    Agreed with you and Storm. Kirkland looks finished to me as a legitimate contender. His punch resistance is nil, and once it's gone, it's gone forever. Can't unscramble the eggs. This knockout might...

    Re: Shoulder Statement From Pacquiao and Top Rank

    Good call Kid Blast. Danny Williams KO'd Potter with a left uppercut with a dislocated right shoulder. Serious, serious heart that dude had.
  25. Re: Sugar Ray Robinson is Still #1: Ranking the Middleweight Greats

    I'm a HUGE Golovkin guy, easily my favorite fighter to watch right now (Kovalev's right there too, but I prefer Golovkin) and he's #1 on the planet P4P on my list, but can't rank him in this company...
