  1. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Huh? The underdog wins more often than loses? This is getting interesting, from a bizarro-world point of view.
  2. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    We have written the same post, in slightly different words. I'm encouraged that it is that clear, two o f us and more seeing through the hype to the obvious - Canelo has no advantages in this fight,...
  3. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Yes. The inferior fighter wins. Uh-Huh. I mean, no, occasionally, due to some intangibles. But not usually.
  4. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Key question. I've watched him slip and counter effectively, very conscious of what is coming at him. I've complained about his tendency to "grandstand" for Drama Show - or, letting the other guy...
  5. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    About Canelo's self-belief and handling of adversity: Yes, he is very confident and composed. But if he has shown more evidence of handling adversity than GGG, i is because he deals with adversity in...
  6. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    You make a good point about Duran.

    The GGG legacy will be understood when it is done. No need to make greater. Duran cannot be minimized, and I was not and would not do so. His story is unique, as...
  7. Re: If W. Klit pulls out of the fight against Fury

    I'll chill. But casual enjoyment of stereotypes is what leads to the dangerous type, and as someone who thinks we should just learn from the holocaust and stop using it for defensiveness, chuckling...
  8. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    You make the best argument I have read. Either GGG hasn't faced adversity because he neutralizes it, or because he's been fortunate. And Canelo IS very composed, more so now. but I can't see him...
  9. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Good comparison, to Duran. Savvy, brutality, accuracy, variety of defensive options, instinct to leap on any weakness. GGG hits even harder, pound for pound, and has more offensive versatility, as...
  10. Re: If W. Klit pulls out of the fight against Fury

    Not aimed at Radam alone, but turn on your brain. I'm a non-observant Jew. But the casual racist **** is getting to me. Own? Do Irishmen own pubs that serve to alcoholics? Do Greeks own diners? Jews...
  11. Re: If W. Klit pulls out of the fight against Fury

    Sucks, but this s--t is real. However, if she is in a treatment facility, he would have limited access to her and wouldn't be her support system much. It would be understandable if it affected his...
  12. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Rubbish indeed. When pressed, no substance. just say-so.
  13. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Bingo

    Radam's heart is kind. But this is boksing
  14. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    You're not saying how he could possibly do it - no answer to my technical points. What could Canelo, one punch at a time, poor range, possibly do? GGG has been consistently the same dominant fighter...
  15. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Just watched a GGG highlight reel. I know it mixes poor and legit competition. But, as risk of being provocative, what I see in a fight between GGG and Canelo is a one-sided mismatch, with Canelo...

    Re: Boxing is like Jazz…

    Beautiful, as a long time jazz lover, long-time boxer and fan, musician, and author of a well-regarded academic book on jazz and the mind, 'Freud's Lost Chord". Not much to add. Jazz, the sound of...
  17. Re: Canelo Hasn't Improved Since Fighting Mayweather

    Hi F-Lo - I left a similar critique on the first article post-fight. You are right on the money. Some people see it differently, but I am stunned how one-dimensional he is. I blame it, apart from...
  18. Re: Canelo Alvarez a One-Punch Smash in Las Vegas

    Respeck....its a let's wait and see thing. We both have eyes.
  19. Re: Canelo Alvarez a One-Punch Smash in Las Vegas

    Alvarez is wildly overrated. Yes, he ends fights with bombs. But he is flummoxed or equaled in early firefights against every live but slow body and embarrassed until landing debilitating power shots...

    Re: Errol spence very impressive

    Hi Radam - Sometimes you're right. But when you're wrong, you're so wrong I have to re-read it to see if I'm missing some irony.

    You're describing the inside of your head. Errol Spence isn't in...
  21. Re: Straight, No Chaser -- Thoughts on Fighters With Paralyzing Punches

    Yeah. Corrie was a freak. Limited boxing skills, but a natural ability to punch with alarming speed and power. Vitali Klitschko had one of the best chins in the history of the division, almost never...

    Re: W. Klitschko Before the Chance

    I knew you'd be first! Nice to see ya, anyway. But, Vitali WAS an action fighter, period. And A lot of Wlad's guys were top tenders before he decimated them. Anyway, its style that I'm pointing too....

    Re: Charles Martin, We Barely Knew Ye…

    Martin seems like a nice guy. But he's a klutz with beginner skills. He is three levels below Calvin Brock...four beneath Marvis, with a few handicap strokes for size. He will never beat a top-tenner...
