  1. Re: The Similarities Between Golovkin-Geale and Tszyu-Phillips

    @B-sug: I really don't wanna compare the two - they are/were both great fighters in their own right. However, no matter how tough Stevens may be, he cannot - qualitywise - be considered to be even...
  2. Re: The Similarities Between Golovkin-Geale and Tszyu-Phillips

    It could depend on which cubans you're meeting. Make no mistake; Tszyu was an awesome amateur in a time were amateur boxing was still a popular TV-sport with high ratings (at least in Europe), a...

    Re: Favourite division

    Totally agree on Duran. If I ever was cornered in a bad street anywhere in the world by a bunch of hoodlums, and had to pick one boxer thru history to stand by my side - or rather, in front of me,...
  4. Re: When Should a Boxer be Forced to Retire - If Ever ??

    As always, interesting and educated points.

    Short comment on judo: it was my first combat sport, and the one that until this day has given me the worst blow to the head ever. I was thrown to the...
  5. Re: When Should a Boxer be Forced to Retire - If Ever ??

    At some point, some fighters get a brain with black holes like a swiss cheeze. Granting them a license is condemning them to some more and bigger black holes and, essentially, a future - not to...

    Re: Do Violent Sports Attract Violent People?

    Being a serial poster and all, this is one of your best in my opinion - bingo.
  7. Re: The da Vinci 2014 World Cup Challenge 'Select the Winner & Enjoy a Dinner'

    Hehe - they was, and were a mere Mascherano toenail with 30 seconds left from losing to Holland in the semis.

    Germany has always been a huge force in world football, but in the good old days - say...
  8. Re: The da Vinci 2014 World Cup Challenge 'Select the Winner & Enjoy a Dinner'

    Congratulations, Skibbz.

    A finale is a finale. I have seldom seen a good one, objectively speaking. I do think Germany showed courage, though, in that they went out there and really tried to win.
  9. Re: What Is The Past History And Future of Women's Boxing?

    As the general level of skill among female boxers increase, so will the general interest - although it will take time, long time.

    In my opinion, young girls are often tougher than boys these days...

    Re: Our Very Own PxP Ratings...a TSS Exclusive

    This almost begs for a thread on its own, but anyway, here's my all-time 10 - spiced with some relatively modern names.

    1. Sugar Ray Robinson
    2. Muhammad Ali
    3. Harry Greb
    4. Henry Armstrong...

    Re: Our Very Own PxP Ratings...a TSS Exclusive

    The times they-are-a-weak, as witnessed by P4P; most of the names are due to lack of special fighters, rather than being special themselves. And the special ones don't make it easy; Mayweather and...

    Re: World Cup 2014

    Neymar out is likely as much a psychological blow for Brazil as if Maradona would have missed out on Argentinas last games in '86, nevermind the actual consequences for their game. Overall, all the...
  13. Re: Long overlooked Have Been The Bo Jackson-like Boxers

    Robert Nordman of Gothenburg, Sweden, had 7 pro-fights (3-3-1) and, if my memory serves me, played some low-level football (soccer) at about the same time. 5 of those fights took place at the...

    Re: World Cup 2014

    Indeed a great goal by Luiz. Immediately made me think of Eder.

    Well, I didn't exactly go out on a limb with the predictions. Between Germany and France I thought it would mostly differ at a...
  15. Re: Boxing Odds : Earl vs. Katsidis for WBU Light Welterweight Title July 4 from Australia!

    @Skibbz: Hyvä Suomi? You impress. Guess you've come across a mean finn or two in the amateur rings?

    @brownsugar: Yeah, but more than the winters, Finland has a history of several hundred years...
  16. Re: Boxing Odds : Earl vs. Katsidis for WBU Light Welterweight Title July 4 from Australia!

    My pleasure. This has nothing to do with neither boxing nor Katsidis-Earl, but since you're a man of words: an interesting oddity about finnish is that its closest linguistic cousin is hungarian....
  17. Re: Boxing Odds : Earl vs. Katsidis for WBU Light Welterweight Title July 4 from Australia!

    Absolutely. Katsidis limitations and his huge sisu has virtually guaranteed him some cognitive problems waiting down the line. He's the epitome of a fighter you never wants to hang them up at the...

    Re: World Cup 2014

    So, with 8 teams to go in a so far entertaining World Cup, it's prediction time.

    On one half.

    Germany-France: Germany
    Brazil-Colombia: Brazil

    Brazil-Germany: Germany

    On the other half:
  19. Re: Boxing Odds – Earl vs. Katsidis for WBU Light Welterweight Title July 4 from Australia!

    They're both torn, but the memory of their war with big letters 2007 still remains. Here is the link to round 4 from their first fight. Savage!

    Re: Danny Garcia at 147

    Right on, O'Cat. Looking at 147, there are a bunch of names that likely won't be around - or in the top - for so many more years. The Top 5 at boxrec have all passed 30, and in some cases have a...

    Still, this version of England has potential enough to be exciting for Euro 2016. Keep Hodgson at the helm, and let the core of the team grow together. But it aint over yet - Italy will beat Uruguay,...
