Yep, plowed through all episodes in a week recently. Very good. You should go back to season 1 and do it proper.

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

Mitchell vs Burns on the Haye vs. Chisora undercard could be exciting. Probably not quite as exciting as the punch-ups that will take place outside the ring - I can't imagine how the police have decided that having Millwall fan David Haye fight at The Boleyn is a good idea.

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

It's a farce of a fight and it will prove to be that in the ring, just like most of David Hayes fights. But the public will buy into it and it will get hyped up beyond belief and they will make some money from it so I guess they are smarter than they look.

Really looking forward to this upcoming Froch fight, atmosphere in Nottingham should be electric but I don't see it ending well for Froch tbh. Bute on points for me.

I can't imagine why anyone would part with any money after the last one, but then people seem to have very short memories.

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

Haye is exciting ... your not sure what your going to get with him ..

And lets face it ... we need Haye to do something spectacular after the shambles of his last fight ...

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

Chisora is really limited but probably the second best heavyweight Haye has fought.
3 of Hayes wins are against guys that hasn't fought since. Guys getting a payday basically.
The other is against Monte freaking Barrett.
And pinkytoegate.

Haye is not exciting to me. He fights at snailpace at heavyweight. For how "fit" he seems to be he has the workrate of a 500lbs tub of goo.

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

If Mayweather had any sense he would come out with a statement endorsing gay marriage and where some rainbow trunks for his next fight.

Christians shouldn't be upset about what Pacquiao said though, don't get mad because he is a more dedicated Christian than you are.

For all of Hayes cop out fights in the past, id still say he has to be a 90% fav over a chubby chisora. This fight has the makings of the Haye-Harrison fight tbh, see it lasting 3-4 rounds at the most

He probably eats meat on a Friday and works on the sabbath too. It's always funny when religious people pick and choose the things they get upset about.

lol, it didn't take long:

@FloydMayweather

I stand behind President Obama & support gay marriage. I'm an American citizen & I believe people should live their life the way they want.

Maybe not the best comment to make before heading off to prison in a few weeks.

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

I think Pacman is just completely out of touch with American culture and what he can/can't say in contrast to his country where's he's inches short of an actual God

I dunno, Chisora has a very hard head and I doubt he'll be stopped unless it's late on. I actually think he has a chance, though if Tyson Fury can beat Chisora handily then you'd think Haye would win just about every round.

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

Chisora's weights in his last few fights:

241 v Vitali
243 v Helnius
241 v random
261 v Fury
244 v Sexton
244 v Williams

If Chisora is in shape then he beats the **** out of Fury imo.

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

I'm no Khan fan, and I watched the first Peterson fight and agreed with the decision, but if he has admitted taking PED's before the fight, how is he still holding the belts?
Surely he cant keep them, I'm confused as in this article it says "Peterson says he took the testosterone for medical reasons and has rejected calls from Khan to surrender his WBA and IBF belts", surely it isnt his choice whether or not to keep the belts once he has admitted he was on drugs when he won them? Wouldnt the governing bodies immediately strip him of his belts like they would take a sprinters medals if he failed a drugs test when he won them?

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

The sanctioning bodies move in mysterious ways. You can't compare boxing to a well run sport like athletics.

"Khan, 25, told BBC Radio 5 live that taking on Peterson had been "like fighting two people"."

I thought he said he beat Peterson easily and the only reason he lost was because the referee and judges were against him?? Man, I always thought that if Khan fought Mayweather that I would support Khan (even though I hate him), now I'm not so sure, every time he open his mouth I he gets more unlikeable. .

LOL @ You.

You think just because you fail some silly drug test you can't still be one of the 27 boxing world champions in your weightclass???

Andre Berto has tested positive for nandrolone. Looks like another good fight is gonna get cancelled then.

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

Ortiz vs. Khan would be cool.

I'm not surprised ahtletes cheat. I'm surprised they get caught, so i can't feel too upset. It sucks to miss out on a good fight though.
