So how did Edmond's boxing guy go against Triple G?

Thank you Edmond.

I havent seen defense that good since Rhonda fought Nunes.

After hearing about that I thought to myself "yeah but how much can you blame Edmund on this one, the dude's in there with GGG, anyone is going to look bad against that guy".

Turns out you can blame Edmund a whole bunch. GGG big brothered him in 2 and made him look like an absolute amateur.

nah. the guy wasn't ranked at any weight and ggg is one of the best boxers on the planet with impossible power. ranked middleweights have looked at least that bad against him. there isn't a trainer on the planet who could have made that guy any more effective against ggg.

edmond is absolutely terrible though.

To be fair, with GGG pinballing this poor dude's skull around with a 10 hit combo you can't say there wasn't a ton of head movement

We're all doomed

Edmond's guy hadn't fought in two years, came up a weight class, and was only in there as a stand in after Canelo dropped out of the fight. It wasn't supposed to be competitive so much as to keep GGG on the bill.

OK that answers my question as to how an unranked nobody got sanctioned in a fight against GGG.

Edmund is a goofy dumbass but his guy could've spent a year preparing at the Ivan Drago School for the Hormonally Challenged and there still wouldn't be enough dedicated coaches and unfortunate Mexican meat to stop him getting his brains blasted out early. Can't really pin this one on him, Canelo is the guy who really authored that KO

No need to apologise when I am right, like usual.





The good thing about Golovkin is that after he's hung up the gloves and had his money nicked by greedy vulture managers, he can get a job on a building site as a wrecking ball

Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.


We've known Bisping is racist for years.

Anyone know if this guy is reputable? If it's true, that's going to be a loving zoo. They're going to throw vodka bottles into the cage afterduring every fight.

Is the guy JDS is fighting the same guy who got stabbed in the heart and somehow survived? I think I saw him in Bellator a few years back.

yup, Ivanov is the dude who was first famous for beating Fedor at combat sambo back when Fedor losing wasn't a meme and was secondly famous for getting stabbed in the heart, not dying, and returning to competition because he's a crazy person

I don't see exclusivity anywhere here, but this is the first big domino of the next TV deals and I've got to think it bodes well for WWE. I personally have zero interest in ESPN+ even with this.
