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

bradley-pac 24/7 was pretty good. It makes me think Bradley can win.

Really? I've watched every 24/7 there is and this one is BY FAR the most boring one I've ever watched.

The whole Bradley side of the show is a train wreck imo. His dad is pretty much the only reason I continued watching because he is such a hard ass....

I think Timmy misses the point that 24/7 is to drum up interest and to get people to like you. Telling a story about beating a kid's ass for bumping into you with his wheelchair probably won't increase his fan base too much. That plus saying "NOBODY WORKS HARDER THAN ME, NOBODY" 15 times during the show makes me think PBF is going to sue him for trademark infringement.

Unless Bradley headbutts Manny to death this won't be a close fight.

Havn't watched 24/7 yet but watched Profile of a Fighter: Tim Bradley and it was alright. I really hope Manny demolishes him, though I didn't hate Bradley as much as ^^^

If Pac wins, Ortiz vs. Bradley in an all headbutt extravaganza?

Followed by Amir vs Floyd who can push off with their elbows more contest.

LOL, I doubt I'll bother watching 24/7. Could you please give a little bit more info on this.

He was just trying to talk about what a bad ass he was when growing up in the hood. And this was the story he told. He said he felt bad after and would say sorry if he ever saw the guy again. But still, what a gay example. It went something like "I was a problem child. A kid bumped into me with his wheelchair once when I was younger and I beat his ass. Thug life."

At least make something up and say you stabbed 8 black guys for looking at you wrong....

Manny isn't going to show up in a wheelchair so Bradley has no chance.

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

i would not be surprised to see Bradley be very competitive. Maybe even "beat" Manny on a majority of scorecards.

It would shock me completely if the official judges agreed with that though.

"just business"

Amir Khan vs. Danny Garcia now.....

Should be a good fight. Garcia has looked pretty good so far.

I'm just happy that Khan isn't fighting Morales, that would be a sad, sad sight.

I'd be surprised if we ever see Morales fight again. One hell of a career but I think he knows it's his time.

On a related retirement note, Roy Jones, Jr. is stepping back in the ring!

I've watched that video about 1,000 times on youtube and every time it makes my ears bleed. I need to just mute it but I hate watching videos in silence.

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

However Garcia tweeted on 19 May: "If he [Khan] doesn't get his belts back, we can't fight. A unification bout is the only fight that can not let me fight my mandatory."

Garcia is due for a mandatory defence against Ajose Olusegun but, should Khan be given one or both belts back, the WBC would sanction Garcia-Khan because unification bouts take precedence over mandatory fights.

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

So what does everyone think of Canelo fighting Paul Williams?

Not sure what I think of this to be honest.

Meh, whats not to like?

Williams may not be the best at 154 but hes by faaaaar the best kid-ginger fought.
And i do think its about time he fight a "contender"

Canelo favorite but not by a huge margin.. Doubtfull theyll let him lose a dec tho

Williams has an 8 inch reach advantage. He throws a lot of punches, and is very active fighter. Alvarez generally doesn't fight for most of the round, and then explodes with accurate punches.

If Alvarez doesn't catch Williams cold early (a la sergio martinez), it smells like a fight that will be a close decision...Williams will take rounds vs alvarez on activity alone.

This is by far Alvarez's toughest fight to date. Props to him for taking the fight. Williams might be better than Miguel Cotto and Timothy Bradley. It is what it is, but I think Williams has to dominate the fight to get the decision....Alvarez's undefeated record is worth A LOT of $.

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

I think Bute wins tonight. Pretty excited about this one. Looks like it's on UK time, so it will actually be late afternoon for me.

Best part of the 24/7 was Timmy's dad, lol. Everything else sucked.
