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

Welp, at best you could maybe give Froch 2 rds. But that is questionable. All the rest were like a sparring match between 2 fighters, one several classes above the other.

Better not hear no whining from Froch. Hate I'm going to hear Ward talk about his God and all that, but o well. So it is.

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

lol 115-113 wtf? it never surprises me how bad some judging can be.

Anyway, shame it wasn't a better tilt. Froch is a tough customer but just no answer for that level of speed and skill. Wish him well with the rest of his career.

Bute and Ward..lets go!

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

its pretty hard to be a bad loser when you get crushed.

You just look worse if you dont say the other guy is great -.-

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

It's like the 2 judges gave the first 7 rounds to Ward, then said "we'll make it look close" and didn't bother to even watch the fight.

I take back my "Ward eats Bute" comment. I just want to see it. They're both on Showtime, so hope it's not too difficult to make it happen.

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

I am really not a fan of Ward's mauling, grappling style. When he's boxing on the outside he looks great though.

Kell Brook is one of those guys who looks absolutely amazing against mediocre opposition, he reminded me of Mayweather at some points last night. Time to step it up though.

Yea it was. It had to be. It was so one-sided any whining or complaining ran the risk of turning even his own hard core base against him. So he did the right thing, plus I believe the actual fight was a humbling experience for him.

lil weird that it took a poor performance to gain a bit of respect for him from me, but it is what it is. I'll continue to watch him fight and who knows, maybe even root for him.

I agree, is much more fun to watch fighting from the outside. But he fought an incredible smart fight with this approach and completely removed any weapons Froch brought to the tbl.

I can see Brook ending up fighting Khan sooner rather later.I think it's much more realistic than any plans Khan has to fight Mayweather any time soon.I know Brook has been looking for that fight for a while now.

Yeah, I felt the exact same way after the fight. I find it very interesting to see how fighters come back after humbling experiences.

I think Bute has the skills and power to KO Froch.
