Price v Skelton: easy Price win, he looks very good.

Flintoff v Dawson: looooool, Flintoff looked like a 13 yr old on speed. He also won.

Holy **** Freddie looks strange!

Ok I must d/l then because been following Price all the way.

You boys pay for BoxNation or watch it online? Just interested in hearing if anyone has BoxNation to give it a review, seems very expensive for what it is.

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

Price is looking great. I think he could beat any hw not named Klitschko. And that's not to say i would bet him as a favorite currently against guys like Haye, but that i think he has the potential to beat them.

Yes I use Boxnation, it's awesome for someone who dislikes money and likes stupid subscription channels.

He needs to step it up somewhat, his next 2 fights should be against decent and durable opponents.

At this moment .. Haye has far too much for him.

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

I would agree, I think Haye would beat him right now. The problem is that theres no decent talent around outside of the Klitschkos. Think Price has to go down the Chisora/Fury route. Then go for Haye after he has progressed more.

Ive just read that if Fury wins tomorrow night he will be next in line for Klitschko. Well I cant wait for that one Ive got to admit. That lad needs bringing down a peg or 2, he will get schooled, then destroyed.

Fury gets a lot of stick for all kinds of stuff, but the guy could become pretty decent.

Hes been working on his fitness and hes in the best shape of his life and seems more dedicated nowadays.

The guy actually has some skills too and his level of opponents have been better than Price's.

Im looking forward to see how Fury performs tonight against Johnson.

As for Flintoff ... he did not look that great last night tbh ... but ive always liked him and he has my respect for getting into the ring..

I think he just got totally carried away by the whole event last night and seemed to totally forget everything he last learned over the last few months because his punches had no shape at all.

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

The only opponent Fury has had that has been any better than Price's so far is Chisora, and for some reason Chisora showed up a stone heavier than he ever had before. Kevin Johnson is a decent opponent on paper but he looked absolutely woeful in the recent Prizefighter.

Yeah fair enough ... but its pretty obvious he would have beaten any of those opponents over 12 rounds.

Johnson is durable with a few skills and its a good test for Fury at this stage.

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

Totally agree Price V Fury is a great match-up potentially. Price looks a million times better against journeymen than Fury, but I'd give Fury a decent chance there. He is young, tough and has good stamina. Who knows how Price would be feeling after 10 rounds with someone as big as Fury still in front of him, plus there are the doubts over Price's chin. I'd go 65%:35% to Price.

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

"At this stage"? The guy is next in line for a world title shot. Its pretty woeful.

What are the doubts about Price's chin? If anything I would doubt Fury's chin, hes been floored/rocked by average/poor fighters.

Watched both fights from last night as well as Guerrero/Berto late last night. Price was easy game, not much to see here though, really needs to fight someone semi good. LolFreddie, I mean I still love Freddie, but please god do not fight ever again. Guerrero was very impressive, lol @ Berto's shoulder roll, read about a potential Guerrero/Mayweather match-up, that would be one I would want to see, be interesting to see if Guerrero could put in that kind of work/volume vs PBF and whether Floyd could deal with it. Be a good fight IMO.

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

Yea Berto's shoulder roll was ridiculous. He doesn't have the length to pull that off or the reactions apparently


I love cotto probably my favorite fighter can't wait for tonight. Honestly I have never seen Trout box so that will be good as well

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

I'd love to see Adrien Broner have the chance to fight Mayweather. Barring Mayweather staying around to 40, it probably won't happen since Broner is at such a low weight class now. That and Floyd would do everything he could to dodge him.

Forgot about this fight. Trout has fought few people of consequence and this is his true breakout fight. He's a huge dog against Cotto and probably won't win, but I like watching Cotto fight. If I'm up early enough, I'll watch it. I hate being in China.

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

re Price's chin - the doubts come from his Olympic loss when he got stopped, and from rumours about his being a bit vulnerable in sparring (though it may be mainly Fury saying that). Not saying he is chinny at all, I hope he isn't, but we really don't know how tough he is yet at the top level.
