Would love to see him mix it up with the likes of Fury, Chisora etc. LOL at him winning prizefighter and then calling out David Haye and the Klits. He needs to work on his Irish accent too.

I love watching big boxing fights but know very little about the sport really.
I don't think today's top guys would defeat any of the classic hw champs (Tyson, Ali, Louis, Holmes etc.), but I think the hw scene is greatly improved over what it was just a few years ago. Additionally, the fights that need to be made are getting made, making the division exciting for the first time in a while.

I think the America heavyweights aren't what they used to be because decades ago a top heavyweight boxer would earn far more than athletes in other sports would make. Now, other sports pay far more than they used to, and only the top echelon of heavyweight boxers are making huge money. Many of the upcoming American heavyweights have crossed over from other sports after flaming out for various reasons. Seth Mitchell, who fights tonight on Showtime is an example of this.

I hope not. I'm fed up of him being shoved down our throats by Ring Magazine etc. He's kind of an ugly fighter too. Showtime will be praying Ward wins.

I really like Canelo, I just hope he'll find himself some worthy competition over the next few years.

Dirrel will give him his toughest fight of the tournament but I still see Ward winning. That will be a great fight. I think behind Pac and Mayweather, this guy is the best P4P fighter in the world. If he gets through this tourney undefeated he will have fought more tough fights in a couple of years than Mayweather has had his whole career.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Abraham totally outclassed.

I hope Ward-Froch turns out to be a decent fight.

Johnson is an extremely live underdog. If he's really at 3-1, I think there's a lot of value with him.

I actually agree with this, and I really like Johnson, but I just feel like Froch will be a bit too smart to get caught.
