i'll kick myself if it turns out to be a good fight....but i'm thinking it will be as boring as a pac fight is possible of being.

it'd be in a sad financial state for sure, but there are plenty of good fighters out there.

you dont think manny is fun to watch??

sure, hes been fighting garbage fighters as of late but you cant ignore how fun he is to watch.

and of course there are good fighters but none with star power.

which is why ill always have some respect for floyd.

oh he's fun to watch, which is why i said the mosely fight will be as boring as a pac fight is possible of being, instead of as always.

fuck floyd.

he's consistently ducked manny with bullshit testing demands, denying that negotiations took place, and (if the latest reports are to believed) purposely pricing himself out of a possible fight......and the his last few fights while against big names, were either against fighters on the decline or guys he considerably outsized. that said, i can't deny that he's got skills.

he's a dumb, shallow, ducking, shit talking, douche bag......but he's a talented dumb, shallow, ducking, shit talking, douche bag.

jones is alright (but he really ought to retire), but i'd like to see another muhammad ali....a guy who can say/do something controversial and say/do it intelligently, fight all comers, talk mad shit, then actually back it.

before he got put in his place by antonio tarver he was untouchable.

dude had great showmanship.

and obviously we all wish we could have another muhammad ali...

edit:wow. gamboa is really coming into his own now....he may be the next pacquiao (who took several more rounds get rid of solis). totally dominating performance.

jones at the top of his game was just ridiculous.....but he was also kinda taking boxing for granted a lot of the time (wasting time trying to get into the nba and what have you) which kinda pissed me off a little.

it was a complete and utter destruction of a very good fighter. 5 knockdowns in 4 rounds.

i think rafael marquez might have beaten juanma if he wasn't for that hairline fracture in his shoulder that made it impossible to continue and the ref giving juanma almost a full minute to recover from a knockdown in the 4th round. if i had to make a bet right now i'd go with gamboa knocking out lopez in less then 8.

he definitely took it for granted. which is why he got his ass kicked by tarver.

damn. im reading about the fight right now. and my fault, i definitely know who gamboa is. i immediately recognized his first name. memory lapse i guess. ha.

yeah i read about that marquez/juanma fight. marquez is clearly an animal fighting with that injury.

what about donaire moving up to face gamboa?
