This is a great read! You don't even need to follow boxing to know all the names In it. Won't disappoint.
Big fight this weekend! I want Pacman to pull it out just to see him fight Rios next.
I don't follow boxing closely, why isn't Pacquiao fighting Bradley?

What a great fight. I was sure Pacquiao was on his way to a victory. Seemed like he was getting the upper hand. I guess it caused him to get a bit too cocky/careless though. Nothing really surprises me with these guys though. I think they could fight again and Pacquiao do the same thing to Marquez.
If they fight like the did tonight, I'd gladly watch a 5th fight.

Shame on you Mitt, spreading that loser funk onto Pacman.Former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney was at ringside with his wife Ann and shook Pacquiao's hand before the match to wish him success. Pacquiao is an elected congressman in his native Philippines.
Also congrats to Mayweather and his extreme greed. How much is that fight gonna bring now? You dumbass.
I wasn't expecting that last night. It doesn't surprise me(which is why I love the sport.) That last few fights I felt like Manny just wasn't totally committed. He just relies more on talent now than training. He still looked good up until he walked into those 2 right hands. It's just he would never get hit with shit like that. I don't rule a fight with Floyd out yet. His loss doesn't mean he would lose to Floyd but it's not looking good:-( Assuming Manny takes the rematch, he could win if he just boxed and was less reckless. He's so effective with his angles. But damn, that knockout might of sealed his career. Some fighters never recover from something that devastating this late in. cough Roy Jones Jr..
I guess I'm not surprised either. This week will be filled with a bit of "Marquez is 39 years old, got huge in the last 2 fights and his S&C trainer is dirty as you can be" and rightfully so. But whatever. Manny gets KO'd, Floyd looked vulnerable for a minute in his last fight. If they ever do fight now, who gives a fuck.
Manny is no where near done as a fighter but he should still retire, he has too much other shit going on. I was hoping he'd fight Rios if he won so he could Margarito him.
Someone needs to make the ringside guy's hands glow green and add a Revive cast bar into that gif.
lol I'm waiting to hear what's reported on the drug test. I bet for the first time it's reported regardless of how it tested by the major sports sites.
I don't follow boxing regularly. I should have known the first great fight I'd seen in years would be marred by a steroid controversy.
Haha it's not that bad though. Boxing has been great and it's getting better. Some serious talent out there and promising young heavyweights. This is a great time to start following it again.
Anyways, great fight. They were throwing their fists and it was fun. Boxing has had some good fights lately and there is some good young talent out there.
Yep! Some quality fights this weekend. Hoping Donaire and Rigondeaux both win so they can fight next!
Anyone who has showtime has to check out Deontay Wilder this weekend. He's fighting on the undercard of the Khan fight. He's my big hope for heavyweight.
So Alvarez is saying he's close to a deal with Floyd for May 4. Seems like Floyd is going back and forth with Guerrero and Alvarez. I'd enjoy either at this point. Saul being a bigger draw I guess.
Should be some good fights tonight! I love Arce, but he's getting up there in age and Donaire is a beast.
kinda what i expected. Arce's time has come and gone. Also moving up to fight a bigger fighter is difficult especially at his age.
Yea he's done.. I really want to see the Rigondeaux fight.. Looking forward to watching Wilder in showtime in a few.
im watching the euro feed of this Khan fight and they keep saying, kHANS speed is still there. well fuck he's only 25, where was that ever going to go. his issue is his fucking Glass Joe Chin
Yea.. Just watching this you get the sense if Molina had a strong punch he would of knocked Khan down. He landed a few clean punches and that's all it takes. Could still happen...
Good fight for Khan, he has crazy fast speed. Good win, he just needs a better chin to be a top dog for a while.
Wilder has a viscous ko on Showtime tonight. He looks very stiff when he boxes though and doesn't have much head movement.
He still has some work to do and his chin is untested. I know his corner has been asking for him to get some rounds so they know it too. I got the feeling he could be picked apart by a good boxer but it could of just been Price's size like they said on Showtime. His movement has been much better in the past but trying to fight a Klitschco like that...If he keeps working on his jab and using more head movement like you said, he will be an elite fighter. Right now he's just a dangerous fighter... He also needs to keep his hand higher. I got punched square in the face because his hand were too low. Tuck those elbows and put your hands up Philly style! I don't think there is a fighter out there that can handle his power. I'm feeling good about him bringing the title home. Hope to see him fight David Price on Jennings next.
For anyone who didn't know.. CBS held fights earlier in the day for that card. The Showtime crew did the call. They chose to use Bantamweights for the main event, Santa Cruz is a good fighter and all but if you want to get the average person interested in Boxing.. Wilder should of been fighting on CBS yesterday. That would of been a better option imo..

anyone know a good site to download older fights?
looking specifically for fights with Julio César Chávez
YouTube typically has a lot of the full fights
Looks like Mayweather and Canelo are going to fight on May 4th on the same card. That's a killer event. Been rumors Broner would be on it too. I don't know how they could pay all these guys but if they pull it off I'm all for it. I just hope Canelo mans up and fights Trout.
It seems like Golden Boy just doesnt want to put him in with Trout. This is the stuff that kills boxing. Those 2 guys need to fight.
I love the Guererro fight. I think he earned it after his last fight. There are other guys I'd rather see Floyd fight but this one will be interesting b/c Ghost seems to be getting stronger at 147
Ali is the greatest of all time!
boxing is for old men
Looks like the May 4th card is Mayweather vrs Guerrero and Canelo vrs Trout.
That's a fucking awesome card right there. I liked Canelo already but even more now as Golden Boy was trying to get him to take easier opponents and he insisted on Trout. He's risking a lot as there supposedly is an agreement that Canelo would only fight on the card if Floyd agreed to fight him next in September.
Muhamed ali was the best!
Lol the trolling is so random in this thread but still funny
Canelo off the mayweather card. Looks like he's fighting Trout on Showtime April 20th.
Gaining muscle mass is quite hard too do after a certain point you plateau steriods push you past that. Now an athlete physical prime is 20 to 30 where your body is full of testorone not 39. When long past your physical prime unless you think him and Bonds just happened to reach it long after and esp boxing when you age in dog years.
Now that being said JMM is a great fight and the timing on that counter was all skill its the one punch ko power that he never had before is suspect. As if you Watched there previous fight JMM has been able to time that little hop Manny does periodcally but Manny been down Zero times.
Boxing is dirty has been for long time judges, riods, paid dives etc but all that I still love the sport that I grew up watching. If you want to root for one root for Nonito Donaire as that guy takes the 2 grand drug test volantarly not the 100 dollar test vegas gives you.
If you have time google joe rogan victor conte pod cast some good info.
FMM may 4th fight is another snooze fest the ghost doesnt got chance good payday for him. As for Pac Vs Money fight thats gone might happen like jones v hopkins when both need cash.
Fights to look forward to rios v s Alvarez and nonito v rig
Don't forget Trout vrs Canelo.
I've been a huge Floyd fan forever but I'm not feeling great about this fight. I don't expect it to be easy at all. Ghost is the real deal and seems to have carried some power with him.

Good fights this weekend Vargas and Lucky boy and watching Bradley get Knocked around the ring by Provodnikov he almost didn't hang but Provo just had enough to hurt him but not enough to put him out Bradley got a chin thou. He should take the Bob Arum gift and find softer touches I know they thought this one was but I stay away from JMM and his new muscle suit and at all cost stay away from FMM. He could fight PAC again as I don't think PAC makes back from that KO on top of that I don't think he has the stomach for combat anymore to much to lose lost that eye of tiger.
I am pretty hyped about Canelo vs Trout hoping in next year Canelo get shot a FMM. The Ghost is good but he is not on FMM level so good but not great I liked him better at 140 but 47 is where the doughs at. I just don't see 8 fights out there for FMM. The PAC fight is gone, JMM he beat but that was before the muscle suit so maybe that rematch but FMM well require VADA testing so that's up in the AIR. He could move up to 54 and fight Canelo if get past trout but that's alot of Risk as I see Canelo as a better younger verison of Cotto. I guess he can get Bradley but the whole Top Rank v Golden Boy Freeze out. I guess well see.
I think Bradley would be better off moving back to 140. He's winning but at what cost? There is a ton of talent at 140 anyway. He's a great fighter and I loved that he stood in there and took those shots but punches seem to really hurt him at that weight. Like you said.. There isn't a lot there for him. Maybe a rematch with Pac and a possible fight with Broner. I'd rather see him add to the mix at 140 if GB and Top Rank can play nice.
The deal for FMM was 6 fights and the contract really isn't written up for him to fight 6 people in that time. If I had to guess he may fight 4 and I'm doubting he will take on Canelo if he gets past Trout or fight Trout for that matter. FMM is a businessman and that just isn't smart business. The Top rank/ GB feud is really hurting the possible prospects. I could see Floyd fighting 1 or 2 of those guys at 140 if they move up.
Everyone who likes to watch fighting should catch the replay of Rios - Alvarado II this afternoon on HBO. Insane.
Really looking forward to the fights this weekend. I think mayweather pulls out a tough win. The Mares- De Leon fight is going to be epic too. Really good card overall.
Really hoping mayweather loses tonight.
lol @ anyone who even THOUGHT Mayweather might lose this fight. Guerrero landed NINETEEN PERCENT of ALL hs punches. Mayweather landed SIXTY ONE PERCENT of his POWER punches. luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuul. Guerrero is a scrub and so is his beaner father.
Easy work for Floyd. Anyone who follows boxing and knows Guerrero, knows he had a very slim chance. He's a good fight, but Floyd is a great fighter.
Mayweather is so fucking good it's silly.
This was the first boxing match I have watched in a while, and I was quite bored. Mayweather was so much faster it was ridiculous. He completely outclassed that guy, but never really tried to put him away.
Go check out Rio-Alverado 1 and 2 if you're looking for exciting fights.
That shit is straight out of the Matrix.
FMM is a great predictor of punches you can not beat him fighting in straight line he well eat your shit up. You need to overload that great boxing computer with multi angles feints and punches from odd angles plus be blessed with great hand speed and even better foot speed. So basically no one on the planet earth closest would be Manny but I have hard believing he is going to make it back from the career ender KO JMM put on him as it was far different then the one Rustico put on him. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKJscbGM638) I knew the Ghost had no chance easy money straight line slow of foot very predictable fighter very Hatton like good but not at the elite level and no where near the best of the best.

Pac v Rios set gor nov. I thought he would take a softer touch in mike alvarado. Got hand it to him he got some big balls.. fighting a young lion who has a great chin fearless and has good enough power to get you out there. He well defenity test pacs chin and heart. If pacs got anything left in the tank rios well get it out of him.
I think rios is actually the safer fighter for manny. He doesn't do a whole lot and comes forward which makes him very easy to hit. I think rios gets KOed. Alverado would of been a tougher fight for manny IMO.
Floyd vrs Canelo sept 15!! Doesn't get much better than that.
My question is..what is a more dangerous fight or floyd this one it if he would of fought manny in his prime?
Honestly feel like this fight is more dangerous. This guy is pretty big and I feel like Manny would have really struggled with the defense and counterpunching.
The fight will be huge and I can't wait but Floyd still wins handily IMO.
Canelo is too flat footed. The power is the only risk, but he has to hit him.
Another straight line powrer puncher well get more buys then the gonzo fight. risk is bout the same for fmm. it well be competive early and boring late. Highest risk for fmm its someone thats got good food and hand speed able to give multi angles and punch from uncovential spots. fmm defense is not reaction time its based on predicting correct what punch can hit him a master of distance and timing. Manny or prime manny would have been the greatest threat it just so happens manny weakness is counter punchers as seen over the jmm fights. it would have made for excting fight a toss up really. but both are scheduled to fight a persons who style takes advantage of there strengths. as you dont want to get in a fire fight with manny which rios well. and you cant beat fmm as straight line volume punchers which canelo is.
manny wins ko 6 round
flyod wins majority decision 116 112
I think this is a much riskier fight for FMM than Ghost. I really believe Austin Trout is a great boxer and Canelo in my eyes did win that fight. His power is probably going to be the strongest Floyd has ever faced and Canelo does manage to land that straight right on people. His speed and timing is pretty underrated imo.. I'm not saying FLoyd will lose but to say the risk is equal to his last fight just isn't accurate. Canelo is a faster, more powerful fighter.
I really hope the Matthseye-Garcia fight gets made for Sept too. That month is looking to be pretty incredible for boxing.

So Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse are going to be on the under card of Mayweather-Canelo..
Just WOW! What an insane fucking card!!! man I can't wait
Rumor is Trout v Lara too.
aaaaaand I have a wedding that night. Feels bad.
So I've been watching Canelo's fights.. I'm going to go on the record and say he beats floyd. I think he will be the most powerful and aggressive fighter Floyd has fought. The one thing that always made me think Manny had a real good shot at beating Floyd, Canelo has too. He throws some really unorthodox punches from crazy angles and they land hard.
Garcia vrs the Machine is really interesting.. Nobody is giving Danny a shot and I'm not sure why.. Even Ark said it in this thread. I think Danny is going to be the much bigger fighter. He's smart and once he gets his timing down he down right lethal. It's a tough fight to call b/c he also eats a ton of right hands but I'm going to stick with my Philly boy!
Tommy Morrison dead at 44. Probably from complications of his HIV/AIDS...I mean assuming the virus isn't made and actually exists since he denied HIV was even a real thing.
They stole his career, he says, at least a $38 million contract and who knows how much after that? They stole his good name, too. Made him admit to the world he has HIV. But that was before he found out that HIV doesn't exist. It was invented to control people, he tells you, and he can go on and on about this all day.
He takes another bite and looks at his girlfriend, a woman from England named Trisha.
"We have unprotected sex," she says.
Tommy is still chewing, but laughs.
"Every day," he says. "We're wild."
After being in a terrible of a movie as Rocky 5, I guess I'd be in denial about a few things too.

That 2009 Mayweather v. Marquez bout was on Fight Channel the other day. Just watching again now from dvr.
Can't believe that was FOUR years ago already (Sept 19, 09).
none of you guys tossing out any predictions huh? Tonight is going to be epic!
Somebody will win and somebody will lose.
Hope I'm not wrong!
Going to be fun tonight - as much as I've grown to like MMA, there's nothin' like a big fight. Money probably rolls, but if Canelo can catch him once early it could open it up.
you guys got any streams?
As much as Mayweather losing would be awesome, I doubt it'll happen.
I dunno. I think Canelo is going to take it. Just something about his style. He's going to catch floyd
Wow what a piece of shit. Could you be any more douchey?
I almost want him to lose now...
Are you shitting me? Money Mayweather escorted by Justin Bieber? I didn't think he could actually get more unlikable but he pulled it off.
I wish Bieber was fighting. I'd even buy the PPV for that shit.
hd and solid so far: sop://broker.sopcast.com:3912/146691
Man Floyd is on another level. His reflexes are inhuman.
I'm on it now, Tarrant. The other streams work ok too.
