peter manfredo, as much as i respect reality show peeps as fighters, its clear to see they are s___e.
as much as i think joe calzaghe is a clown, now im sure he is.

yet another over hyped, uncompetitive waste of a decent mans money. joe c wont fight anyone who can fight, we wil l NEVER se him fight b hop, kessler or clinton woods. For the simple reason hes **** and he KNOWS he is. he considers manfredo a credible challenger, id fight harder against a stranger in the street over nothing than manfredo supposdly fought joe for his wbo strap. manfredo = terrible fighter, give it up, joe c = my 107 year old granny come back from the dead, she calls u out. back out u injured.
boxing is dying cos of these cowards, i mourn it.

only better thing about mma is the refs know how to make a good stoppage.

most of you will not remember but in the late 70's to early 80s PKA "Full Contact Karate(kickboxing) was enjoying quite a bit of popularity,it was given weekly network TV coverage and could also be seen on all the weekend sports showsabc's wide world of sports,nbc sports world,etc. it had magazines totally devoted to the sport.it was more popular with kid's and women and the talk of the time was watch and see how Kickboxing is going to eclipse boxing!it was called the "sport of the future" well I guess they had it wrong because it never took off in the states,I think mma is having a similar popularity stride right now and I don't think it will last.sure the sport will always be around I'm sure but,it will never "kill" boxing its to time tested mma has been around since 1993 if anything mma was the final nail in the coffin to kickboxing

he's **** and he knows he is? :nonono:

the whole point of the manfredo fight was that it was supposed to be a PR exercise to gain exposure in the states. as manfredo said, if he and joe were to walk down a street in america he'd get recognised more than joe. its backfired a little because of the crappy referee but that can't be blamed on joe.

if this pr exercise helps set up a big fight next against kessler, taylor, hopkins, winky or tarver then it is completely vindicated. if not, i'll be as pissed off as the next guy.

You are clown. Joe Calzaghe has just successfully defended his title for the 20th time and you say he is ****? What the **** are you smoking? Calzaghe is a legend and he will secure his legacy this summer when he destroys whoever has the temerity to step into the ring with him.

Idiotic. You've posted this to get a rise out of people.
A while back i posted something regarding MMA and the threat it held to boxing. The post was taken out of context by some, as IMO boxing will always be the best sport in the world as far as i'm concerned. However, some of the youth of today may very well prefer MMA to boxing. That's just the way it is, but boxing will always be around.

MMA is a ****in street fighting bull****. There are way too many types with the IFL, UFC and half a dozen other leagues all with their own rules and interpretation of how MMA should be. Boxing has survivied since the ancient Egyptians. Don't even tell me that people dont buy the PPV's either. Go to any city and you'll find a huge boxing fan population but you wouldn't no much about that.

They say 30% of street fights end up on the ground withing a matter of minutes or seconds..


So MMA dudes always say Sooner or later they will be able to take it too the floor like they want...


Thats True... maybe if an MMA dude fights some regular hand skill ***** from the street it'll go to the floor within a small amouth of time BUT how many of these weak theories were Tested with actually boxers? That are good and know how to HIT? Who would make it through a few uppercuts and straights(with no head gear) from Tyson/Marciano/Frazier/Norton/Foreman on the way in to grab?

I won't even mention footwork.

Too bad the average 15-25 year old yank doesnt agree with us. All those n00bs wanna see is people getting brutally ko'd, hence the use small gloves, long rounds and no holds barred fighting moves.

People that watch MMA with the exception of a few only watch it because its more violent, they dont understand how we can watch boxing and be enthralled by defensive masters like Winky and Mayweather, they dont understand how we want to see an evenly matched fight last 12 rounds, they dont understand why a ref will stop the fight if a boxer is in danger...

All they understand is violence, MMA is an "In" sport, a fad. It may not die all together, but it will die down. Just like Kickboxing had its reign in the 90s for the very same reason

is it just me or do alot of the mma guys on shows like ultimate fighter reality show seem a bit....festive...

They seem to cry alot over nothing and ***** at each other like a group of women...

I liked the Pride FC but UFC to me was just to watered down.

I dont know why they turned it into this over regulated crap....it used to bemore exciting when you would see kicks to the head on the floor etc and no holds barred..

now its just sanitised boredom with two guys rolling around the floor for what seems like an eternity.

Its not realistic fighting. People will kick you in the head, rabbit punch ect...its hardly as real as it gets.

Our USA elite are the BEST ever. You see I said Elite... and not just some bum or taxi cab driver.

There will never be an overseas... Ali - Tyson- Frazier- Norton- Foreman- Holyfield- Mayweather- Jones- Hagler- Hearns- Robison- Surgar Ray- hopkins. these guys are solidified GREATS that all boxers Regardless of where they are from look up to.

No other place will ever have that worldwide Respect. and USA just has More to come with the Newbreed. Because there is a gap and soon (3-4 years) that gap will be filled by Many USA fighters with talents more incredible than the past.

Boxing needs it... and boxing will soon be ready for it. New breath of life in the sport.

Sorry to hit ya wit da **** but its the truth hate it or love it.. 1

I agree, from speaking to some of my mates here in the uk they enjoy the violent aspect of MMA. They just want to see a savage ko.

Another thing, before I started my boxing, me and my mate didn't know what combat sport to choose. I've always enjoyed and loved boxing and grew up with a couple amateurs so I popped down the gym for my first session. When I reported back to my mate and explained to him we worked on stance first and just pure jabbing he just didn't want to know. He's an avid UFC fan, and he was more interested in just jumping into a MMA gym and learning to ko someone on the street, rather than learn the intricate science and technique of boxing. I don't have a problem with UFC as a sport, but I do have a problem with some of the attitudes from it's fans who knock and look down at boxing. I also often get the impression from some MMA fans that they think boxing is "easy" compared to MMA!?! They talk about our "big gloves" and no "take down defence" or no "kicking defence". Its boxing for gods sake, we don't kick, we don't grapple it's as simple as that, so those points are irrelevant. Any many of these fans who make these points haven't trained in either MMA or boxing.

But there you go, my rant of the day!!!!
