This is Saul's way out of the rematch. He knows he can't beat Dmitry. His camp knows that too. I hope Bivol doesn't give in. I've lost a lot of respect for Canelo.

If 40 years of GGG beats Canelo his reputation will swirl counterclockwise in the proverbial bowl.

Alvarez wants Bivol to rematch at 168. That's not happening. Bivol might make that weight but ee would be weight drained. What is the point of challenging for the 175 belts if you aren't fighting at 175. Just a way of getting out of the rematch IMO.

Was a pretty left right to the temple/forehead. Had Donaire shook. Dude is definitely overlooked because he’s in the lower classes and definitely well deserved of that top ten p4p. Maybe top five.

Pretty much. They have to stop with the catch weights altogether. If that is true, that’s the dumbest (bleep) I ever heard. We’re gonna fight for your 175 lb titles at 168. Bivol would be drained as hell. Dude probably walks around at 190. Now he gotta come down to 68? That would be suicide.

Romero got KDFO . That was a vicious one punch left hook KO. He ran right into it. Rolando's legs looked like classic rubber legs. He got to his feet but he didn't know where he was. He was wobbly as hell. David Fields did the right thing by stopping the fight. Romero was defenseless. Rolando didn't protest at all. He knew he was cooked.

Romero talked a lot of smack before the fight. Things like I'm gonna make him quit on his stool, I'm gonna kick his ass. I'm gonna beat da ish outa him. At the end of the fight he didn't do an interview. He left the ring immediately.

Jim Gray went to his dressing room and he still wouldn't do an interview. Honestly, I think he was still on queer street. I don't think he'd recovered. He also had to be embarrassed after talking all that smack.



Fight was supposed to be at Staples (yeah I still call it Staples) but Rollie went through that BS and we were heated. Still a great atmosphere and Cruz fought well. In this fight, it took Tank some time just to figure out that awkward ass style and he clipped him. It’s now time for him to run 135 or 140. He holds a secondary belt and he needs to go and get with Haney. Ryan Garcia would probably present the biggest check. I think that’s why he called out Ryan. These belts don’t mean as much as they used to. All about that check.

Resume fight for Canelo. Looks good seeing a W next to GGG’s name even if he’s 40. Would be better if the W was by Benavidez. That’s who he needs to conquer.

That's the fight I want to see or Jermall Charlo. Beat one of these guys and he'll regain my respect.

David's record 26 0 0 23 KOs is impressive. I don't know the quality of his opponents.

Jermall rec 32 0 22 KO. He's 32. He got cut in last fight for the first time in his career and showed his warrior spirit.

A win against GGG at this stage of his career wouldn't impress me one bit. Gennady's past his prime. His name has slipped from prominence. He's a fighter that was too good so he was ducked until he was up in age.

Can't wait for Spence Crawford. I like Bud because of his heart but Errol ain't no joke.

Where da hell you been doughboy? LINK

Tragic news ... South African boxer Simiso Buthelezi -- who became disoriented during a fight over the weekend and began punching thin air -- has died.

Boxing South Africa confirmed the awful news Wednesday morning -- saying Buthelezi passed away on Tuesday night at a hospital in Durban.

He was just 24 years old.

Buthelezi had been initially hospitalized on Sunday following a terrifying scene in a boxing tournament in Greyville, Durban.

Man. I missed y’all as well. Had to get some stuff squared away and working all the time. I’ll definitely shoot through more. Buy everything is good. Just need to get these Lakers right.

As far as 168, Canelo is undisputed but that run through 68 really wasn’t impressive. If any of the three guys he fought didn’t have belts, would he had fought them?? I give him credit for unifying 68 but getting those belts against Plant, Benavidez and Andrade maybe had looked better. 168 is also really thin. Hell, Benavidez’s resume isn’t that good because 168 is just so empty. He smashed Lemieux who was damaged year ago.

Charlo would have to move up to fight Benavidez and he would be a lot smaller because Benavidez is damn near a 75er. Dude is a huge 68er. And I think that’s why Canelo went the DAZN road and not go against Charlo and Benavidez. That would be two tough ass fights.

And everyone want Bud and Errol. Can’t wait for that one. Hopefully not on October 8 because I’m supposed to be checking out Elton John in Frisco.

Nuts. This is why guys don’t care about belts as much. It’s about that check because you never know when something like this will happen.

Usyk vs Joshua 2 - Aug 20

Quote:
Joshua vs Usyk 2 was originally planned to be held in May but the ongoing situation in Ukraine put that on hold.

Usyk travelled back to his home country and joined the military in the defence of Ukraine after the Russian invasion which began in February.

The 35-year-old has now received permission from his country’s sports minister to return to his training camp and gear up for the epic rematch with AJ.

Joshua vs Usyk 2: Date and start time

The fight was originally expected to take place in late July but the exact date is now set to be Saturday, August 20.

Saudi Arabia is the frontrunner to host the rematch, with an public announcement set to be made soon.


Re: Tyson Fury

Quote:
However, Fury has since admitted he would face the winner of Joshua vs Usyk 2 in a huge unification bout later this year if the money was right.

The money will be right for that heavyweight unification bout. Joshua needs to step up.

Danny Garcia spanked Jose Benavidez. I didn't give Jose a round, maybe round 9. I wonder if Canelo will fight either of the Benavidez brothers?

You may want to turn the volume down LINK
