Will Khan retain his title from the American champ Lamont Peterson?

Is Ali really the greatest ever? Will they ever find someone to give the Klitshco's a fight?

Why does Tyson like the taste of ears? (and people's hearts and children if his press conferences are to be believed :D)

Have your say on the world of pro boxing...

Wlad got his 50th KO against Mormeck last night, there really is nothing left for the Klitschko brothers now, they may as well just retire and let someone else have some fun in the division. Fury will give neither man a match before anyone says it, and the rest, well they've either already been beaten or aren't good enough.

Still we have hope in other divisions in Ricky Burns, Nathan Cleverley, Kell Brook and a guy called Chris Eubank Jnr!

this fight was an absolute farce. he could have knocked him out in the first round if he wanted to. i have absolutely no idea what mormeck tried to achieve and why they have picked him.

vitali - haye fight still not off the table yet though.

Mormeck was a mandatory challenger though weren't he? So he had to face him no matter how out his depth Mormeck was.

Former heavyweight champion of the world Corrie Sanders has been shot dead in a robbery in South Africa.

Sanders, 46, is said to have been shot in the stomach when three men stormed the Thatch Haven Country Lodge near Brits outside Pretoria.

He was rushed to Kalafong Hospital where doctors were unable to save his life.

Sanders became the WBO heavyweight champion in 2003 by defeating Wladimir Klitschko with a second-round knock out, a victory that is considered one of the biggest upsets in recent boxing history.

Steve Collins to get back into the ring to fight Roy Jones Jnr at age 48

In much less welcome news than Froch/Kessler II, former world champ Steve Collins has today announced he is getting back in the ring, and he will fight Roy Jones Jnr.

Sometimes news breaks that baffles you and the breaking story that Steve Collins (48) is getting back in the ring after 14 years is just one of those. After some very vague rumours last month it now seems a very unlikely comback is on.

The former WBO middleweight and super middleweight champion, who last fought in 1997 and who retired two years later, told Richard Keys and Andy Gray on talkSPORT today that he has a fight lined up with one of the all-time greats, American Roy Jones Jnr.

“It’s not a comeback as such, at my age I’m too old for that, but it will be the end of a 15-year grudge.

“It’s a fight Roy Jones needs. He claims to be one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters around but he refused to fight me.

“I was very happy with my career, but the one fight I wanted was Roy Jones, and when that didn’t happen I retired. To me he was afraid of me. I don’t think he’s a coward, but at the time he was!

“But now it’s happening. I spoke to Roy and we’re going to get it on. He wants one more fight before he retires and this is the one he wants. If we get a good offer we’ll split it down the middle and get it on.”

At one time Jones, now 43, was considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Now, after drifting up from middleweight to heavyweight he has lost three of his last five bouts, including one to a man that turns 48 today, Bernard Hopkins.

As for when this bout would take place, it sounds like sooner rather than later.

“I would like 10-12 weeks to get ready,” said Collins. “In my mind I already see how that fight goes and I can see the outcome. I feel like I’ve never been away. I’m looking forward to it.

“This is still a match. We’re the same generation. I wouldn’t even consider fighting as guy 15 or 20 years younger than me, because that’s not a match. But we’re the same age and this is affair match. It won’t be any different to how it would have been 15 years ago.”

And as for a venue?

“I’d love the fight to be in the UK but there is interest from Dubai, Russia, China," said Collins. "Dubai looks the favourite, but we’ll have to see where the offers come from.

“Hopefully we’ll get an offer that’s suitable for us both and we get it on. It will give all old-timers some hopes!

There has been no response from Jones as yet.

Both should call it quits, apparently Sugar Shane Mosely is coming out of retirement to take on Malinaggi too.

Baz
15-01-13, 07:45 PM
Hope they got the zimmers ready! Also surely the boxing authorities wouldn't sanction a fight between these two considering how long Collins has been out of the game?

As for Froch/Kessler it'll be a cracker. Surely the winner would go on to face Andre.

Goofy
15-01-13, 09:18 PM

Probably a good reason why he says Dubai is a likely venue, be a lot harder for him to get a licence here or in the US. Stupid move though, Collins has nothing to prove plus he's been out of the ring faaaaaar too long! Jones has gone on far too long too........ should have quit 5 or 6 years ago at the top!

Yep, Mayweather is gonna fight the potshot fight, he will just counter his ass all night, prob spending less time on the ropes this time.

I think the only reason Mayweather wanted the rematch is so he can embarrass him, as he failed in the first match to.

I got up at 6am with my young kid. and put a stream on, but the fight had finished.
So downloaded it from Pirate bay and watched it.

Mayweather was too good, but he didn't look his usual best. Having watched Maidana lose to Kotelnik, Khan and Alexander I thought Mayweather would easily out box him in both fights, but Mayweather looked scrappy again.
But it was defo Mayweathers fight. Maidana didn't get close this time.

Won he who should have won. Glad I didn't watch that farce (according to many), how can a guy who run away win, without even hitting ONCE? Pac was attacking throughout whole spectacle, Mayweather was even booed out by crowd :lol:. How is it fair result? It's all about MONEY and bets.

120mln $ goes to Floyd 80 mln $ to Pacman. Everyone is happy, I guess. ;)

Wondering when the talks about revenge will begin...

Dermotron
03-05-15, 01:11 PM
Mayweather had by far the more cleaner punches, even though the actually number of clean punches was about 9 to 4. The punches landed count is a bit misleading but all the stats were heavily in favour of Mayweather



Stats
Punches thrown
Punches Landed
Jabs thrown
Jabs landed
Mayweather
435
148
267
67
Pacquiao
429
81
193
18




It was fairly boring for the spectators but Mayweather got the job done by making use of his reach and height advantage and rarely let Pacquiao near him. Even when he did it was to get a breather and let Pacquiao use up some more energy. Mayweather has always been a counter puncher and he was never going to fighter Pacquiao any other way. He was never going to stand there and go toe to toe like Hearns Vs Hagler.

The biggest problem was the hype of the fight that was in truth 4 or 5 years past it's sell by date. Was never going to be able to live up to it unless Pacquiao knocked Mayweather out, it was the only result that could have matched the hype, everything else was going to be a disappointment imo.

Craig Forrest
03-05-15, 02:18 PM
One fighter showed up to win, one fighter showed up not to lose

Floyd won't want a rematch. He wants to retire undefeated and he'll feel he won so why bother fighting again.

ebfatz
03-05-15, 02:55 PM
So I've heard Mayweather will fight again in September then retire.
That will take him to 49-0-0.
Surely he'll fight once more after to overtake Rocky Marcianos record?

Cam F
03-05-15, 04:13 PM
Boring fight, reminded me of Haye v klitchko where Haye ran away the whole fight.

Mayweather did the same except it was a master class of defensive counter attack boxing. Not good to watch but can admire his skill and he was exceptional at it.

Love Pacman but he isn't the same fighter of 5 years ago and couldn't get near him.

Wasted £20 and wish I hadn't bother to get up for it.

I enjoyed every minute of the fight.

I'm a boxing purist. It was an exceptional performance by Mayweather. Not sure how Manny thought he won it.

Mayweather is saying one more fight as he has 1 more on his Showtime contract.

And it will generate more publicity and money if it is said to be his "last fight"...

But then he will fight next May as well to make it 50-0 and sell the rights for the one fight to the highest bidder...

Craig Forrest
05-05-15, 03:03 PM
It was a masterclass in defensive boxing and counter-punching by Mayweather :ok:

However, he has no interest in entertaining the fans and only wanted to do the absolute bare minimum to win and collect his money and keep his undefeated streak intact. A match like that does absolutely nothing to help rescue boxing from the depths it is slipping to. People want entertainment so they would rather watch MMA. An entertaining fight would have helped bring the profile of boxing back up but unfortunately this does exactly the opposite.

But Floyd doesn't care. He made a shit load of cash and he stayed undefeated. He'll be retiring soon so why would it bother him if boxing is slipping away... he won't be around.

and while 48-0 might be a good record, I await the day he breaks Julio Cesar Chavez's 87-0 streak. Plus Chavez had an iron jaw and would actually fight, rather than dodge and weave and score with some jabs.... I'd watch him any day of the week over someone like Mayweather

Yep. Like how Eubank rolls his shoulder. Good uppercut too. Suspect he'd lose to Billy Joe 9 in 10 times though.

Looking forward to the Kell Brook fight V GGG this weekend.

Does he stand any chance though?
Moving up two weight divisions.
Khan did that V Canelo and looked good for 6 rounds, using his speed and movement but then got caught and it was goodnight.

I think Brook is naturally heavier than Khan and so the step up won't be as big a change, but he is facing the Best pound for pound fighter.
If he can make it to the end of the fight, he has done immense.
Come on Brook. But I can't see it!

Thoughts?

Redknapp69
06-09-16, 10:26 AM
Heavier than GGG as well isn't he

Is a helluva ask though by the sounds of it - as it's a different division he keeps his other "belt" doesn't he if her were to lose?

AMC
06-09-16, 10:32 AM
Yeah his Welterweight belt isn't on the line.

He looks good for the weight but like Kahn against Alvarez, I can only see it one way.

Should finally lead to Kahn v Brook though, probably at 154, as I think after this fight it'll be hard for Brook to get back to 147.

faz44
06-09-16, 01:04 PM
If Brook can go up nearly a stone and beat Triple G, he's the best boxer in the world. I know the Ring like Roman Gonzalez and Sergey Kovalev, Boxrec favour Canelo, I think the AP favour GGG but how could Brook not be number 1 if he wins?

AMC
06-09-16, 01:54 PM
Good point, hard to say he's not if he can go up two divisions and beat someone like GGG.

Even for his inactivity the last few years, I still reckon Ward is P4P best, but he needs the Kovalev fight soon.

faz44
06-09-16, 08:42 PM
Isn't it coming in November? I can't think of anybody with a claim to clear out a division like Andre Ward had at super middleweight. I haven't seen his LHW fights. Is he genuine at the weight?

Topofthekop
07-09-16, 09:52 PM
GGG to win between rounds 7 and final bell 6/4.. And over 7.5 rounds is EVS.

Only one winner in my eyes. GGG should win this via knockout in one of the latter rounds which is why money is going on those bets above.

AMC
07-09-16, 09:55 PM
Not a bad bet, I fancy it to end around then too.

Not seen much of Ward at LH, saw his fight against Paul Smith, but as expected that weren't much of a contest even with his inactivity. Can't see the weight being an issue for him though.

BREAKING NEWS: Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who pulled out of an Oct. 29 rematch with Wladimir Klitschko last week due to what his promoter termed as Fury being "medically unfit," was notified that he failed a VADA-conducted test for cocaine in a random urine sample collected on Sept. 22, multiple sources with knowledge of the test results told ESPN.com. The results of VADA's testing for performance enhancing drugs are not yet complete, but the positive cocaine test likely will result in Fury being stripped of his world title belts.

Very entertaining fight. Wlad will be kicking himself that he didn't kill off AJ in the 6th when he should have. I reckon we'll see a rematch as there's no way Fury will be ready in 4/5 months for a fight with AJ.

I would love to see AJ vs Wilder though. I think Wilder would have too much power for AJ, but it would be class to see someone with awesome power too taking it to Wilder.

Mark
01-05-17, 01:43 PM
I was there :) A group of us have pretty much followed AJ's fights over the last few years and pledged to get tickets once the announcement was made after the Molina fight.

Had a cracker of a day out. There's always a worry that a fight will end early but not this one, two warriors in the ring that went toe to toe. Atmosphere was amazing and it was brilliant to tick off a live boxing fight like that off the bucket list.

Seems like it could be Fury next imo - Then Wlad may go for the rematch.

Dermotron
01-05-17, 02:12 PM
I think Wilder will be probably a couple of fights time. Bum fight, Klitschko II/Parker, Fury then Wilder as a Super/Century fight. Then a rematch of that fight of course. Dillian Whyte probably more deserving of a fight than Fury. Under rated fighter

Going to watch it tonight, but the compubox numbers are a joke, it's just one guy judging what's a hit and what's not, apparently they had Manny throwing 20 more punches in the first round but that was nowhere near the case.

117-111 was a ridiculous score, but it was a close fight apparently and quite a few boxers had Horn winning it, the US commentary was very one sided in favour of Pacquiao, the UK one apparently more even.

I wathed the UK Fight night with Conor Been looking impressive and then a good tear up for the "headline" fight

Joshua Buatsi (AJ's his manager!) also looked pretty compact as well for first pro fight

Anyone watching the Mayweather V McGregor fight this weekend?

Predictions?

I know it is a freak show.
But I will be watching.

I cant decide if Mayweather will stop him early.
Or be boring and do him on points.

I'll go for a 6th round Stoppage win for Mayweather.

For what it's worth...

Mayweather to box rings around him - that's a given.

He hasn't stopped anyone for ages (Hatton?) so wouldn't be surprised to see it go to 12. More likely the referee intervenes circa round 8/9.

Will be listening to Mike Costello calling it. The man's a master.

Nope. Floyd could have knocked Connor out in 1st round if he tried, but ya know, no sponsorship money then. If the fight ended too quick money would have been lower (no ads revenue - and Ads in USA are quite a holy grail in sports).
So Floyd played around. He dragged the fight till 10th round. Normally it would have ended in max 3 rounds if Floyd was serious... :P

It was a good fight.... Conor's only hope was to knock out Mayweather in the first 2 rounds and he came out hard.... landed some good shots.... won the first 2 rounds.... but then he started to get tired and Mayweather started to pick his spots, hammer away at the body shots to tire him even more, and by the 10th, Conor was out of gas and his punches had no power

Mayweather deserved to win.... McGregor showed a lots of guts and skill for getting into the ring with that kind of boxer having never boxed professionally before... hats off to him :ok:

Dermotron
28-08-17, 09:14 AM
He done pretty well and I think Mayweather was genuinely perplexed at his style early on. Had Conor been the same height that uppercut in round 1 (or was it 2) was a knockout punch.

He suffered the same issue he had with the first Diaz bout, too much of weight change to make the fight. His arms were gone from round 6 and Mayweather was definitely dragging the fight out a bit from then on.

Craig Forrest
28-08-17, 01:51 PM
Plus having the stamina to stay on your feet for 12 - 3 minute rounds while moving and throwing (and taking) punches is a lot different than the type of cardio needed for MMA..... Mayweather knew how to do it, Conor didn't.... but he could learn and he'd be way more dangerous

Mark
29-08-17, 12:13 PM
Conor sure did come out fighting to begin with. Perhaps too much too soon as he tired as it went on. Anyone notice the amount of times he grabbed Floyd from behind for some jabs to the back of his head? UFC coming out in him there!

Was worth staying up for but annoyed it didn't end sooner, I had Floyd to win in rounds 4-6 :D

AMC
29-08-17, 12:19 PM
I had the same bet Mark, Mayweather was never in any danger, he may have been a bit perplexed with McGregor's unorthodox/awkward style to begin with, but as usual he took a few rounds to suss his opponent out, and from the half way point he started to really take over.

McGregor's biggest chance was to take him out early, but I don't think that excuses how gassed he was after about 5 rounds, his shots had no sting after that which allowed Mayweather to come forward more than he usually does and eventually finish him off.

Apparently Mayweather hadn't sparred in training since mid July either due to his brittle hands.

Anyway, just over two weeks till GGG v Canelo in a proper fight, can't wait for that one!

Agreed - though not sure it was as wide as 118-112. Thought Canelo had the first couple of rounds and the last two as well. I worry for GGG though. Eight months waiting for a rematch of a fight you know you won (assuming 5 May) - who knows what that that'll do for his motivation. And he's 35 already. And Canelo has more time to grow into middleweight...

wato20
20-09-17, 10:34 AM
I thought Canelo took 2 of the first 3. and then one drawn round, maybe 5th or 6th.
GGG had him. I think it is irrelevant if Alvarez grows more into middleweight, GGG is the better man.
If there is a rematch, I think GGG will stop him next time.

Still too early for Fury in his comeback to take the Wilder fight for me, he's the superior boxer no doubt about it but he should have been looking at another 2-3 fights before taking on someone like Wilder, as said above it'll either be Wilder KO or Fury points and even though I'd take Fury over any heavyweight (including AJ) I think this has come too early and Wilder will win by KO, his power and finishing skills are outstanding.

I'll take Frampton over Warrington as well, should be a good fight in the early exchanges but Frampton is the classier operator and fought at a higher level.

Not long till GGG - Canelo 2 now either.

Can't see how AJ is ducking Fury? The guys a clown and hadn't even fought again properly until a few months ago. He needs to work his way back up to the top if he wants to be serious about fighting AJ for the title.

That's why taking Wilder on will be interesting but I feel it'll be a bit of a joke fight.

AJ has a slot free to fight at Wembley again in March. It should have been Wilder really but given he's now preparing for the Fury fight, I do think it'll be Whyte again.

I wouldn't be surprised if you don't see the rematch for quite a bit, Wilder probably doesn't want to see Fury for a bit and will want the AJ fight, otherwise I think the WBC are pushing for him to face his mandatory.

No reason why AJ v Fury can't happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if the winner of Whyte-Chisora takes on AJ, either way I can't see AJ - Fury being in Vegas, AJ isn't as big as he should be over there and it's two British fighters who can sell out Wembley for 90,000 rather than a 20,000 gate in Vegas, throw in the British fans would have to watch at 5 in the morning again and they won't get as many buys as the usual 10-11 time here.

I agree a 90k sellout in Wembley is nice straight forward arrangement but from a pure global draw and future revenue stream, Vegas or New York are the places they go from big to huge. Imagine the AJ hype if he put Fury down in the US after Fury's rise from the dead at the end of the 12th the other night. The Americans would be all over that.

I actually enjoyed the fight. There was the tension of whether AJ would let his ego get the better of his plan (remember this is what he'd planned in fight #1). Then Ruiz would step in and clobber him.

Putting Ruiz down in round 1 of the first fight probably ruined AJ's game plan, but a lad getting up from that basically unhurt must fuck with your head a fair bit.

Definitely let it go once he won the belt. Should have been training properly to defend the belt at all costs. Couldn't believe the flab he still had on him.

I think it'll be Pulev, fair play if he takes on Usyk next and maybe a good time facing Usyk with him being new to the division but he's a very good boxer and after coming back with the win over Ruiz I think he won't face him next.

With all the slimming down AJ did for the Ruiz fight, I'd hate to see him go up against Fury atm... He seems to be lacking the sheer power to take him down.

He'll probably go up against Ruiz a final time in spring/ early summer.
