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

2.15am is the estimated walk in time, east coast fight so bit earlier than a vegas fight. Gonna have to find a house party after the pub!

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

I think the points against Khan should be cancelled and the decision overturned to give Khan the win via a judgement that the rule against pushing should only be enforced when the boxer isn't doing it to avoid getting crushed by an opponent with superior inside boxing skills. I also think the rule against biting should only be enforced when the boxer isn't doing it as a legitimate tactic against holding or head butting and the Tyson-Hollyfield decision retroactively reversed in favor of Mike Tyson.

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

Looking forward to this fight. Have a love/hate admiration for both of them and no particular care who wins it. Should be a classic skill vs heart match up. Could see Ward ending it inside of 8, or Froch grinding out a gritty win. Hope it lives up to it's expectations.

This is what the Super 6 was all about, and it garnered some fantastic exposure for these fighters. And an audience for fights to come in the division.

Woot. Ima breaking out the beers for this one.

I don't give Ward a prayer of stopping Froch. The only way he wins is via points. Froch has an amazing chin, one of the best around atm.

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

Khan lost. Arguably should have got the decision but he lost fair and square and didn't do enough to make the judges give it to him. He is better than that fight so the loss is his doing.

I'd love to see Froch win but it's a big call.

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

kell brook is a good fighter, but i think it's about time he fights someone good. This is his 26th fight, and his 10th 12 rounder; how much time does a guy need to develop?

Good stoppage IMO.Brook was a few classes above.

Hopefully he'll start getting some big fights now.

It's like he's in pain when he has to give someone a compliment.

The lads are clearly trolling him hard in the studio.

Ward is too quick, hopefully he slows down soon.

Froch's defence of just turning his head to the right is wtf?????????

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

30-27 Ward so far. pretty easy ride for him. Froch needs to at some point and real soon decide to put it on the line and open this up
