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

    Skibbz - It is an savvy comparison - but GGG is a considerably more fluid two-handed combination puncher than Tzsu, though his tactics were similar. Tzsyu was stiffer in the upper body and didn’t...
  2. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    One thing I noticed is that Atlas didn't say anything about what was going on in the ring that fight - he simply satiated over and over that Anthony's record must be netter than he is, and then...
  3. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Well Commish, you know I love you. I just have to correct something. I know from personal, up-close experience that the trainer for Wendy is pulling his hair out trying to get him to do it properly...
  4. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Well, I see these days as Anthony’s amateur career since he didn’t have one. He’s getting his maturation together about how to hang in, handle danger, let his best qualities flow even under attack. ...
  5. Re: Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    Facts are facts, commish. The mind is the biggest variable of all.
  6. Anthony "Showtime" Karperis on ESPN tonight at 8

    My homey, my trainer and friend, is the opening fight on tonights ESPN card. When his head is together, Showtime has real gifts of speed, combination punching power, slippery head movement, and a...

    Re: Do Violent Sports Attract Violent People?

    Too simple-minded. What is a “violent” person? One who aims to find victims, preferably those who pose no challenge but are just mushy enough, inflict pain non-consensually? Someone who buries all...

    Re: Canelo Has No True Style Identity

    I just read what Skibbz said. It is too soon to close the book on Canelo’s potential. And not being JCC is no crime - very few have ever been in that league. But then again, no one ever did what Lara...

    Re: Canelo Has No True Style Identity

    Interesting - I think lot of people were hoping even unconsciously that Canelo would take up the empty spot where JC Chavez Sr used to be. He, too, was not really fast, stayed in the midrange of his...

    Re: Canelo Beats Lara, Via Split Decision

    Thank you, Shadow. For a demonstration of how boxing scoring reprises one of the great parables in the history of philosophy, read the nice Wikipedia entry here:...

    Re: Canelo Beats Lara, Via Split Decision

    117-11 might have been really bad, or it might have been a clear value judgment about what is valued in boxing. Lara was MASTERFUL in his anticipation, equal slickness in moving right or left,...
  12. Re: Algieri Would LOVE To Fight Pacquiao...IF The Price Is Right

    You all know that I am an Algieri fan. Worked out with him, lots of analyzing him in the gym ring and the arena. He is kind of a prodigy, having improved 200% (approximately) in the last year,...
  13. Re: Chagaev Beats Oquendo for WBA Paper Title

    Has Oquendo ever been in a fight you'd go out of your way to watch? As for Chagaev, he looked like the real deal when he first came on the scene....and my face has begun to hurt from yawning. I...
  14. Re: Joe DeGuardia Has Started Initial Talks To Make Algieri-Pacquiao

    "With the majority concensus of the boxing press seeing Ruslan as being robbed, and much of the public divided I think the Pacquiao Provodnikov bout it still an option. Algieri will be biting off...
  15. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Good work, GreyMan - a point someone should have made and then you did - If Provodnikov could do that much damage with one punch, and failed to do any more such damage, then isn’t that evidence that...
  16. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Actually, he’s pretty relaxed and pumped about his accomplishment and being both champion and admired by the majority of the boxing world for either winning and having major cojones, or both, and...
  17. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    C’mon, Skibbz, you know more boxing than that. The winner is not decided by swelling or slices of meat torn off, unless the injury incapacitates a fighter or the ref decides enough i s enough. ...
  18. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Now, I’m highlighting another point for the the thinking TSS reader. In Pacquiao-Bradley1, about 3% of boxing journalists and insiders had the fight for Bradley. In this one, not only did two...
  19. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Again - Radam, thank you for sheer entertainment value....at least.....but air punches to NOT make a guys head snap back, and my large, meaty flat screen showed, again and again, Chris rolling under...

    Re: Provodnikov - Algieri Live Fight Discussion

    "Provodnikov often seemed like a lumbering outclassed slowpoke while his opponent seemed like a savvy master technician who really put on a clinic and brilliant performance (the first round...
  21. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Here's a good meta-comment: the knowledgeable scribes on this website are more divided over what they think they saw, than over any fight in my memory. Now by anymeasure i ain't no boxing dummy …...
  22. Re: Algieri Stuns Ruslan in Brooklyn, Gets Split Decision

    Video, plus good justification for how I saw it. It turned into a boxing lesson with lots of clean knuckle punches (not slaps, for the victor). Chris did what Herrera did .only with lots more...

    Re: Provodnikov - Algieri Live Fight Discussion

    How ca you win? By making the bull-rushing freak miss and tag him with clean punches. TChris is not a knockout puncher, but he is a clean puncher, and their wasn’t a smack to be heard - there was,...

    Re: Provodnikov - Algieri Live Fight Discussion

    Watched it again. Provodnikov swung wild and didn’t land more than two - specifically two - clean head shots after the first round except a smattering af good body shots. Everything else was...

    Re: Provodnikov - Algieri Live Fight Discussion

    Chris had both. Outlanded power shots, jabs, neutralized provo’s movement. So, you’re right: by your criteria, Algieri wins.
