    Re: Maybe IT IS Time For Floyd To Lose!?

    For me, the answer is styles make fights. But not just the generalities - the actual nuances of the styles. First, Pac and Marquez were eye to eye. There were no opportunities for anyone to exploit...

    Re: The Champ

    Well, sure, there’s some fawning going on here. But at the same time, there is respect and acknowledgment for the mythic aura the Heavyweight Champ can carry - and whatever you may not like about...
  4. Anthony Showtime Karperis Talks About His Sparring with C-Al, Khan fight, Pac and Money

    http://leftjaballnight.com/teamleftjab/anthonykarperis-2/

    My trainer and friend, Anthony, gives a good interview, with footage from one of his tougher fights, and lots of observations on working...
  5. Re: Amir Khan to face former World Champion Chirs Algieri on PBC Spike TV card

    One thing I will repeat about Chris Algieri, as opposed to the majority of fighters who hit a ceiling and can’t get any better: He is very, very bright, and a very, very quick study. If JDJ can...

  7. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: MayPac Compares To Leonard-Duran I

    Only problem I see is Frank's characterization of Pac as fighting more in episodes. Pac HAS fought fights in which he has maneuvered and picked his shots; he was also a non-stop buzzsaw in many of...
  8. Re: Algieri Wants BIG Bounceback Fight, Broner or Khan

    Homeboy opinion: Khan is a tall order for anyone. But C-Al really suffered from inadequate training in the Pac fight. And, as I am trained by a guy who spars regularly with C-Al, and has done a...
  9. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    I enjoyed writing it! Same to you. Fights like this and intelligent commentary like we have makes me enjoy thinking about this glorious sport
  10. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    There's a funny styles make fights logic to why Pac might do better against Mayweather than against Marquez. Marquez could never really reach Mayweather. Mayweather never won by engaging, but only...
  11. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    Hi Storm -

    Of course, my sentence was overstatement. Pac has his repertoire, and those of us who know boxing can describe it. It is exactly the speed, unorthodoxy, volume, and stun power - the...
  12. Re: Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Mayweather's Most Virtuoso Performance

    Cotto can be predicted. Pac can’t.
  13. Re: An Algorithm For A Real Time Boxing Prediction Machine, Or Perhaps Just Something Meaningless To Just Address The Elusiveness Of Performances Within Boxing; Too Hard – Tell Me Why?

    Thanks Deep. My goal is to have the time to cut weight - which my job really cuts into because it limits my time and , well, challenges my nutritional options. It is my last excuse. But I made a...
  14. Re: An Algorithm For A Real Time Boxing Prediction Machine, Or Perhaps Just Something Meaningless To Just Address The Elusiveness Of Performances Within Boxing; Too Hard – Tell Me Why?

    Thank you. Gotta say, after years of having no friends who liked boxing, my gym and TSS have become my places to hang out with people I enjoy.
  15. Re: An Algorithm For A Real Time Boxing Prediction Machine, Or Perhaps Just Something Meaningless To Just Address The Elusiveness Of Performances Within Boxing; Too Hard – Tell Me Why?

    Hey Storm - thanks back atcha.

    The name Mortcola - mystery about to be revealed - is a play on the name of a grad school professor I couldn't stand, and I created a cartoon character of him by...
  16. Re: An Algorithm For A Real Time Boxing Prediction Machine, Or Perhaps Just Something Meaningless To Just Address The Elusiveness Of Performances Within Boxing; Too Hard – Tell Me Why?

    Absolutely beautiful, challenging, and accurate post, Storm.

    One thing I’m not sure got elucidated here is what range of vectors the power can be generated and transferred in - why so many...
  17. Re: TWO SECONDS FROM GLORY, TWO SECONDS TO HEARTBREAK

    I have a headache, because I agree with both points of view. But I keep getting stuck on the idea that a fight is judged on what happens between the bells, not on what we think would happen if the...
  18. Re: TWO SECONDS FROM GLORY, TWO SECONDS TO HEARTBREAK

    Heartbreaking and epic.

    To NYTony, a question - one I’m not sure of the answer to:

    Is the fight to be decided on the basis of what happens before the final bell, or on sentiment, or on...
  19. Re: Kovalev Shows Extreme Versatility Against Pascal

    Big Kovalev fan here. But....as I stated elsewhere, he is too easy to hit. Pascal did it with single unorthodox, surprise shots, the kind you’re not ready to defend against because they come from...
  20. Re: Give Us A Rematch, Says Team Pascal To Kovalev

    Pascal showed guts, some chin, and was able to wing enough unpredictable counters to land enough to make it interesting. But his only success was those quick single shots thrown in desperation - he...
  21. Re: GOOD BOY WITH BAD INTENTIONS; Golovkin Beats Murray, TKO11

    I was thinking the same thing - with as huge an amateur career as he has, he must know his own chin, and just decided to ignore a lot of Murray's efforts. However, though he was never rocked, he was...
  22. Re: GOOD BOY WITH BAD INTENTIONS; Golovkin Beats Murray, TKO11

    Golovkin’s chin and offensive IQ are remarkable. However, as exposed in this fight, he is very easy to hit with combinations, which was no big deal against an ordinary puncher like Murray. However,...
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
