i was watching the hatton fight again the other day

hes gonna retire undefeated

I think Cotto has a better shot than any of Floyd's "recent" competition but Cotto's recent bouts haven't really pitted him against anybody to test him - Margarito's washed up, Mayorga had already lost to almost every major fighter he's faced, Pacquiao beat him. I really want Cotto to pull it off but he would have to bring in some new style that Floyd hadn't trained against.

shane really showed up tonight. first time seeing canelo, not overwhelmed, a money fight with pac or floyd or whoever definitely not a good move for him yet

Floyd knocked them all out of his words. Not enough $$ left to buy a vowel

EZ Snappin, Sunday, 6 May 2012 04:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

that was a sweet fight until cotto gassed. rounds 4-6 belonged to him imo

take away all the bullshit and just look at his style and you just can't deny Mayweather. That was a tremendous performance, gauged Cotto almost perfectly. Cotto came to fight & did pretty well although I think Mayweather's accuracy in early rounds has a Tyson-like effect on his opponents: he scares them out of throwing their best punches because their instincts quickly tell them "that will leave you open, if you're open Floyd will land at least one." I gave 4-6 to Cotto too, but not super-decisively except for 4.

Alvarez looked really good, I love Shane a lot & always love fighters who just want to keep going but he needs to hear the message the scorecards are sending him & step down. Get into training imo, he could become a great trainer

The traditional home of boxing, um, Luxembourg, have sanctioned a Haye vs Chisora fight to be held in Britain despite neither boxer having a British licence.

This completely sucks. I really like Lamont Peterson but he's toast now - stylistically he's a much more interesting fighter than Khan imo. Oh well. Dumb athletes can't seem to stay off the juice so to hell with them

something about that fight stunk, but i didn't expect to find out he was on performance enhancing drugs for it too. Boxing doesnt need that kinda shit right now. Its stock has never been lower. Very sad and hope its not widespread.

goddamit, I don't want to root for Pretty Boy Floyd if they ever fight

Convicted repeat woman-beater vs homophobe. It's a tough choice.

hmm yeah think the convicted repeat woman-beater is probably just a bit worse than the fundie moron

I realized the other day that 99.9999% of the reason I hate floyd is because he's ducking Manny, so in some universe in which he wasn't ducking him I really wouldn't have a problem rooting for him.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 19 May 2012 00:12 (2 years ago) Permalink

Manny's pretty bullshit these days anyway but if you read Ryan Songalia in re: the paper that "broke" that Pacquiao story, it's pretty shady

I'm not gonna get up in arms about him opposing gay marriage considering how many of the greatest boxers and how many of my favorite boxers were basically sociopaths.

David Price looked terrific vs. Sexton, hard to argue he's not the top heavyweight prospect.

fantastic atmosphere in Nottingham.

Bute's legs look dodgy.

All over. What a performance by Froch!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's given Bute a real doing here.

I missed this, wasn't being shown where I'm at but BadLeftHook's account of it suggests it was a master class by Froch

cosi fan whitford (underrated aerosmith bootlegs I have owned), Sunday, 27 May 2012 01:52 (2 years ago) Permalink

it was. He was devastating.

After his impressive battering of Bute, he said: 'Fighting like that, I'd beat anybody in my weight division. There's nobody that can touch me. If I catch Ward on the chin with some of the shots like I landed on Bute, it's game over. It's a simple as that.

'Andre Ward had a good night and Carl Froch had a bad night and that's the reason he won that fight.

apart from the weird third person, i didn't see that at all, ward just looked a lot better

Éden Éden Éden / H.A.Z.A.R.D (nakhchivan), Sunday, 27 May 2012 22:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

he did but anyone can have an offnight. Plus Froch says he didn't stick to his plan.
