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

I hate Degale but I thought he dominated the fight. The other guy was applying a lot of pressure but he was getting out-punched in nearly every round. This fight really shows that Degale will never be a truly world class fighter though, he doesn't have enough skills to compensate for his lack of punching power, or should I say slapping power? It's amazing that no one has ever taught him to punch properly.

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

Kell Brook fighting tonight as well. He has said he will retire if he loses. Why even say stuff like that when it's 100% lies.

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

Brook looked pretty good at the weigh in ... looks like hes learned his lessons from his previous fight against Carson.

At this stage of his career he now knows he cannot cut corners in his training, hopefully see a pretty good performance tonight.

Personally ... im looking forward to the Reid v Anderson fight.

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

man I was rooting for Morales but knew it was probably futile. He needs to retire from the sport, not just retire from the United States lol. I just don't respect Garcia much. I would like to see him fight Khan again but I am one of the few people who really likes Khan. Garcia just has average punching speed and pretty good power with a seemingly good chin. He just doesn't seem all that skilled to me. Nothing screams "star". The Cano fight was a good close fight and decent entertainment. I didn't see the first fight and only saw last four rounds of the kid chocolate fight but they were entertaining...The judges had it a lot more lopsided than the commentators but like I said I didn't see 2/3 of the rounds and am gonna rewatch it if I can find it on youtube


looking at the results the Alexander match looked like everyone knew it would. Dumb fight, I can't stand watching Bailey.

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

Definitely one of my favorite people in the sport. Grew up seeing him on tv as trainer and then commentator and always liked him more than i did most in boxing.

It's sad to see him go at a relatively young age.

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

I will particularly miss his work as a commentator, even if he did always say "this fight is going exactly how I thought it would" despite not actually predicting it that way.

Also, the highlight of any Wladimir Klitschko fight was Emanuel screaming at Wlad in the corner.
