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

Is anyone kinda afraid for Erik Morales this Saturday? Amazing career but something tells me he needs to hang up the gloves. There's only so many 23 year olds you can fight at the end of your career, and Danny Garcia has a ton of experience already for his age (over 100 amateur fights).

I'm more excited for the undercard (James Kirkland vs. Carlos Molina). Kirkland's fight against Alfredo Angulo was one of the best fights I've ever seen. If Kirkland doesn't go down 3 times in the first (lol) it could be a good fight.

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

Molina is not exactly a big puncher .... so Kirkland should have a comfortable evening i reckon.

I used to find it kind of funny how Scott Harrison always ended up in trouble. Now it's just sad.

The Castillo-Cotto undercard fight was called off for Castillo missing weight too. Dudes missing weight all over the place. MMA and Boxing.

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

Did anyone see the Enzo Mac fight last night? Enzo was knocked down with about a minute left of the first, the referee reaches the count of eight, Enzo gets up and then the bell rings for the end of the round. It finished 47 seconds early apparently. I've seen this kind of thing in Italy and Spain but haven't seen it before in the UK. Enzo went on to win but it should be a no-contest really.

Ive yet to see the fight but i was reading about it in a boxing forum as it was happening ...apparently the whole fight was farcical ..

Apparently ..one of the posters has good money and big odds on Enzo losing in the first round and was quite frankly going ape

I expect nothing less from a FW promotion ... the guy is slowly losing all his good fighters ..

I think it was on that BoxNation channel and if what you say is correct then how can the people in charge not see it and get something done? Just makes a mockery of the event and sport.

Kirkland is getting **** on so far. He looks slow and lethargic. His punches just look so awkward.

It's also pretty lol that Kirkland is getting pushed/held all over the ring.

WOW. HOLY ****. What a way to get DQ'ed. Kirkland just luck boxed something crazy. Molina's coach 100000% getting fired. Ref should never be allowed to ref again. AMAZING.

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

So Molina gets knockdown as the bell rings. He gets up before the 10 count, but is disqualified because one of his cornerman entered the ring while the count was still going on? Terrible.

Reminds me of the Juan Diaz v. Paulie Malignaggi fight. Paulie won easily in Houston but all judges had Diaz winning big. Such BS.
