Hey guys what are some underrated fights from the past 10 years in your view?

I'll say Cotto-Ali was a surprisingly good bout from a bit back.

I sometimes do. As a rule, boxing writers could stand to done down the flowerly language.

Also one time that guy said that Golovkin doesn't jab very much so now I distrust him a lot.

The vids I can find are unfortunately potato quality at best but Nonito Donaire-Nicholas Walters was good fight from a few years back that everyone forgot because Donaire fell off and Walters fell off the face of the Earth

Got a request I saw someone post in one of these threads a few years back.

There's a fight that I think (?) was Marco Antonio Barrera early in his career where the guy he's facing just completely gives up on guarding his head. Like he's happy to keep getting tagged in the face just so Barrera wouldn't do that left hook to the body anymore.

Not a great fight or anything, just an interesting thing where the guy was like "ok, just please hit my face now."

As I remember it this went on for a couple/three rounds before they finally stopped it.

Watched some fights.

pacquiao-hatton, de la hoya-chavez, mayweather-ortiz, golovkin-canelo, joshua-klitschko, joshua-ruiz

All fun in their own way. I'll probably be watching a lot more in the next few weeks.

thanks for the suggestion situasian

Kickboxing:



I'm a pretty casual boxing fan, but looks like Hollyfield/Rahman was pretty notable.



The Joanna one was definitely pretty weird, though....the gnarly hematoma's are usually a distinct lump, she's the only one I can recall where it literally just kinda took over her whole head.

Good news: boxing is back! Top Rank will be running cards from the empty MGM Grand Arena on Tuesday and Thursday. main eventers are Shakur Stevenson and Jessie Magdaleno in pretty lopsided matches the whole card (about 4 hours) will be shown on ESPN.

Soiled Meat

It was great, but I'm a little disappointed he didn't try/mention the "real" smash, which is a kind of counterpunching uppercut hook combo that Razor Ruddock invented. It has a lot less body lean and I think it lands straighter, and it's a highly situational punch, but it's way more real than "what if I jumped like mario and hit your face like you were a coin block".

I mean given the lack of any live sports this card might as well be Mana from the heavens but in a vacuum it is pretty low quality even before Mikaela Mayer tested positive for COVID-19. Shakur Stevenson In a non-title fight and a bunch of prospects in six rounders. Robisey Ramirez still trying to pick up the pieces of his first loss, another heavyweight nicknamed Big Baby who, unlike Jarell Miller, is hopefully not a walking chemistry experiment and Quatavius Cash who I only know as the "Errol Spence by murder" guy in that Mayweather Boxing Club video about Errol Spence vs Mikey Garcia.

Cash - Metcalf? Not really, 60-54, 60-55, 59-55. Aside from a having a terrible/amazing haircut Metcalf honestly is on the level of a club fighter and was game as hell but Cash was just better.

In football they have been using pre recorded crowd sounds. If you just used the close up cameras from certain angles (above) it would probably work quite well in boxing.
