Probably because most posters are grim northern Englishmen. Same reason why MMA threads are written in an internet sperglord style.

apparently canelo and jccjr just made a gentleman's agreement to give the whole 45million purse to the victor (canelo giving up 36 mil if he loses, jcc 9mil). it's probably a publicity stunt to drum up interest in a fight noone wants.

I did have a lot of fun watching that, but I hope tonight's fights are a bit better in the actual boxing.

that might be the lowest bar ever set.

though i will say that late round 4 and 5 showed haye getting in a good rhythm and doing some decent boxing on some old, broken wheels.

The SituAsian posted:

I just wish me and MMM Watcha Say could agree on something for a change 

Also it seems like Chocolatito just might not be built for anything above flyweight strange as that sounds. He really hasn't had the same explosiveness since moving up when he couldn't put away Arroyo. He was really fading against Cuadras and was bullied by Rungvisai. Might favor him in a rematch but I would definitely be worried if he got in with Inoue who would absolutely dwarf him. I favored Inoue for a while but would worry that the Monster would really hurt Gonzalez.

Gonzalez was cool to watch just bodying dudes but at this weight he seems incapable of not having foty's.

personally i really buy into 'prime mike'. his ferocity, the way he moved, how hard he hit.... i've never seen a heavyweight like him. lennox was incredible though. and crucify me if you want, but ali is top 5 as a fighter. as a man, as a person, that's something different, but as a fighter, there's a few i'd rank above him.

Was browsing YouTube earlier and an official HQ upload of Canelo vs Khan popped up. (Unable to say if this is geolocked anywhere, isn't in England)

roughly 25:50 for the kill shot.
Still a beauty.


e:
I'm pretty sure that if you asked Sky Sports or the BBC for a all time top 10 heavyweight list, it'd take all their strength to not put Anthony Joshua on it at the moment.

lol i forgot how terrified khan was looking at the end there. he knew he was slowing.

i hope anthony joshua is the real deal. i wouldn't say no to an uninsane british champ who just destroys people.

is conlan the irish guy at the olympics who went ape poo poo at the officiating? i'm sour on that guy. olympic boxing is corrupt as gently caress but the scores in that fight were absolutely fine and he lost it on my cards too. all that outburst was was disrespectful towards his worthy opponent who was the better man on the day.

He didn't really have a choice, as there was a rematch clause. His options were vacating his belts and looking like a huge bitch, or retiring.

Anyway apparently Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Moises Flores will be on the undercard. That's already a really good card then.

Who's Moises and why is he making you excited for a Rigondeaux fight?

The fight actually had a narrative, and it was between two of the best guys on the planet. I was incredibly entertained and am keen for the rematch (though I think ward will win unambiguously)

i just can't see how kovalev can win other than being as dominant as he was in the first four rounds, but for eight this time, oh and also switch up your tricks enough that negates ward already having seen 12 rounds of how you box him. it seems like a very tall order.
