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

Canelo vs. Moseley would be cool only because I'm a Shane fanboy from 5 years ago and I always hope he'll come back and have a great fight. Nothing was sweeter than seeing him rape margaritas face.

Sorry thrasher, mosley is done. I would like to see him do a goodbye fight though, to go out on a positive note. Quite sure canelo would be too much. No idea who he can fight though. Should be a veteran with a good name imo.


As the resident pac-critic i want to be the first to give him props for fighting bradley. Two thumbs up. In my eyes you outdid floyd for the first time since cotto. It will definitely not outsell floyd-cotto but its a much better fight.

I find it very difficult to get excited for any fight involving Tim Bradley. I'm a lot more excited for Floyd-Cotto even though it may be less competitive.

The thing that I'm not looking forward to about that fight is the amount of crap that we are going to hear from fans of Floyd or Pac depending on whether Floyd beats him more convincingly than Pac did. In reality it is impossible to tell whether the Cotto that fought Pac in 2009 at 145 is better or worse than the one that will fight at 154 in 2012

Its mostly the combo of pac+bradley that entices me. Tim has a horrible style but when matched up with pac its gonna be great. I also expect tim to actually fight to win, which is most appreciated.

**** the ******s who compare "who beat cotto worse" theyre droolers who couldnt debate boxing if their life depended on it. You dont have to be a genious to realize the stark contrasts in how pac and floyd fights and how that factor in.

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

I like the Pac versus Bradley fight. I just hope that it doesn't end on a headbutt. Pac and Bradley are both going to go after each other and I expect them to bump heads multiple times.

Serious lulz

By chance I was watching Paul Williams greatest hits earlier today and both Sergio fights were amazing. Serg is one of my favorites right now and probably would be my number one pick if he actually fought people.

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

That knockout was awesome in so many ways, given what happened in the first fight I was pretty sure it was going to go the distance so it was really unexpected. It is very rare that you see a clean knockout like that at the top level. The way he just crumpled to the ground was sickening. Also it was pretty cool that Martinez guaranteed KO of the year and fighter of the year with one swing of the arm.

I remember watching it and jumping out of my seat and just saying "wow". I'm guessing any one else watching it for the first time also had a similar reaction.

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

I showed my brother and he loved it, it's probably the best knockout in recent memory for me and since I'm a big Sergio fan and luke warm on Paul Williams I'm especially partial to it

I'm glad Quigg won, it's building nicely to a showdown with Frampton.
it was just weird because Arthur looked fine and he won't be the first fighter to have spun around as a reaction to a good body shot. makes little difference as Quigg was doing him.

hopefully they keep Frampton/Quigg apart for a good while longer and let both develop before they meet.

Frampton lives 5 mins away from me /csb.

Mitchell winning easily on the back foot, but the fight is boring as **** with him only throwing max 20 punches per round.

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

Boxing logic:

Kevin Mitchell knocks out John Murray...

John Murray then fights the best in the division (Brandon Rios) while Kevin Mitchell fights a guy nobody has ever heard of with a record of 14-8-5.

What a joke.

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

I have only seen him twice. Once was against Cordoba and I kept falling asleep, I think it was probably 3am or something on the undercard of a big fight. And the other time he destroyed Willie Casey in about a minute. So I guess I can't really say. I do know that only 350 people watched Rigo's last fight, so the Risk/Reward ratio is probably the wrong way round.
