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

wtf lol first real punch Wlad threw all fight (at least what I saw). Like he intentionally dragged the fight to the end to give a show

I wonder what the scorecards were though.

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

First couple rounds were actually somewhat intriguing. However, after Chambers took a couple flush jabs he went into a shell for the rest of the fight. If Chambers gameplan was to be active for 3 minutes every round, he would've had a chance. Klitschko isn't a counter puncher. He's a front runner. Chambers going into a shell made it real easy for him.

I'm very excited to see Wlad vs David Haye. Both have vulnerable chins and both are dangerous punchers. That fight will live up to the hype imo.

Klitschko was pitching a shutout. He won the first 11 rounds. He almost KOd Chambers in the 2nd, but reverted back to his jab-athon in the 3rd and didn't break out of that mode until the last round.

Chambers got a huge break when his glove split and had to be changed between the 9th and 10th. He may have been KOd earlier if he had not had the extra rest from getting the new glove on.

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

Does Pacquiao look bad now since Mosley agreed to Olympic style testing and he actually admitted to using PEDs in the past? I always thought he looked bad, and a lot of people out there thought Mayweather wouldn't demand the testing out of Mosley and he did, and Mosley quickly accepted.

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

No. Only idiots think that Olympic style testing is only slightly more worthwhile than the current testing. Go look at Olympic WLing and see how many positives occur each Olympics. You'd be hard pressed to find a single person who is legit "clean". All you're doing in making some pointless douche baggery and funneling money to a doctor who'll provide masking agents and test you at home to make sure you'll pass. Or they'll just dope you up more.

People are just dumb as **** wrt these things.

This.

Unreasonable demands based on poor/ill-intentioned information are unreasonable regardless of anyone else that accepts them.

So Marion Jones was caught, but it was years after she was an Olympic darling.

IMO, Mosley's desperate to make any fight. He won't walk away from anything that produces a good pay day.

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

Pretty interesting boxing weekend. Looking forward to Maidana/Cayo. I can't believe that Guzman is so overweight.

I hope Dirrell makes some style adjustments and is effective against Abraham.

old people fight. Would have been a great fight 10 years ago.

I read that there is a lot of money on the line to whoever knocks the other person out. So there is added incentive for a knock out. Even though RJJ is one of my favorite boxers of all time, I fully expect him to be beaten... badly.

I don't know what stylistic changes will give him an opportunity to beat Abraham, who I think is simply too good for Dirrell.

Abraham is a decent pick to win it all, actually.

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

IMO, I think B-Hop wins by UD.

Seriously, B-Hop is such a boring fighter. When was the last time he KOed somebody?

Fair assessment. I'm really just hoping Abraham and Froch loses. I think Ward wins it all.

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

I didn't catch Dirrell's interview, but damn AA saying he's "a good actor..."

Sore ****in loser. Maybe it's a language issue, but damn, I can't believe AA's reaction.

He turns into his punch and Dirrell was down. Proper call. Cole should have given him the KD credit in the earlier (10th?) round, but it was a good DQ. Funny how Cole kept calling Andre, Anthony. LOL.

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

ok, it's the 11th round of andre dirrell v. arthur abraham, a super six fight.

dirrell is leading on the scorecards (97-92, 98-91, 97-92), he gets backed into the corner, slips on the logo, goes to a knee. abraham hits him square over the eye while dirrell's on a knee. dirrell goes down in a trembling heap... and abraham gets disqualified.

dirrell right now is disoriented, he at first thought he lost. he's slowly regaining his faculties, and will be taken to the hospital for testing and observation.

there really was no interview. all he said was 'i got dropped', while his whole camp is trying to explain he won the fight. grey moved on to the AA interview you saw.

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

if you got showtime west, a replay of the whole fight is about to start.

if you have directv, there's a free trial of showtime all this week.

tbh, that's the only reason i could watch right now.

anyway, 547 on directv.

it was a good fight to watch. Not too much holding from AD, compared to the Froch fight.
