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

Great night of boxing today!

I got Martinez winning by wide UD and Canelo stopping Lopez in the mid/late rounds.

Chavez looked like he had struggled to make the weight at the weigh-in.

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

jesus I just woke up today and was in and out of sleep all night and really thought it was Sunday and I had sportscenter on all night and could have sworn I heard Chavez Jr. dominated the fight and won a decision lol I was real surprised and wondering what the hell happened the last 12 hours. Just assumed I got drunk and passed out before the fight. Glad to see its freakin Saturday and I am just an idiot. Could have sworn him and Canelo won and Man City was up on Stoke City 4-1. I don't think this has ever happened to me. Kind of excited to see if I have psychic abilities or not.

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

yea lol at City scoring 4 goals at Stoke though


should have known it was a dream when the last goal I remember was Lescott passing it to Kompany way out ahead of the Stoke defenders and tapping it in. Always something in dreams that doesn't make any sense

most of us love Canelo more than Chavez Jr, but i can't imagine anyone picking that fight over Chavez Jr vs Martinez. hopefully they dont overlap much because i really want to watch both.

My prediction:

Chavez wins in a close fight
Canelo TKO

Canelo lopez is a mismatch.

Martinez chavez may also be, but it could be great. Chavez is much better than most give him credit.

The Alvarez-Lopez card is on Boxnation and Martinez-Chavez is on primetime for 15 quid.

I got Martinez by TKO and Alvarez by UD. Chavez JR looked even more weight drained than usual and Martinez will make him gas out with movement and counters.

Alvarez is just too big and strong for Lopez who looks soft at 154. Lopez has guts but I think he knows he's just a jr welter and is going to get manhandled.

Great night of boxing in Vegas. Upwards of 30k fans attending cards at UNLV and MGM. Boxing ain't dead.

Depends on what country you're in. If in the US Matinez-Jr is HBO PPV, Canelo-Lopez is Showtime. Was debating whether to do both but my fight buddy is sick of dishing $50 everytime a decent card happens. So we'll do Showtime and catch the HBO rebroadcast later.

If you're in the UK BoxNation has 4 bouts from both cards if I'm not mistaken.

No idea for other countries.

It's not the money .It is wrong and has been slowly killing the game for a long time now

When I was younger all the top boxers here in the U.K where household names.Even guys they where not world champions where still very known.Now most of our world champions are not even known,all the guys fighting tonight in the U.S are not known at all!

Never use to be like that .Sky T.V came in ,then pay per view etc etc

Sad ,very sad
