Man I am a huge fan of al combat sports, but as of late the profesional boxing circut sucks! I wait for like 2 decent fights all year and usually on if not both ore a disapointment. the best fight i have seen was Gatti Ward 1. and Tyson getting Owned (although bummed me out) was worth it to see someone get their ass handed to them.

We need to clean up boxing, unify the belts and ****ing get some new tallent out there. they are loseing fans left and right and "The Sweet Science" is worth preserving.

Not to mention the owner of the mandelay Bay Casino is the head of the boxing association and gets to pick judges for the fights. Corruption......

We need a new Rocky movie.

Maybe with some techno remix of "Eye of the Tiger".

Or something.

never use the word TECHNO in one of my threads again, or you will be banned to my backyard

I used to be a huge boxing fan and that is what I trained before BJJ and MMA. I do not watch boxing anymore and refuse to do so, unless is Ward vs. Gatti 17.

Even dealing with a small boxing commision here in Fl is just frustrating. They are a legilized mafia and corrupted mother'fers. Unfortunately to run a legal MMA show now a days you have to deal with them in just about every state that MMA is allowed.

I still like to box myself every now and then.

Actually BZOB I also hate techno. I was being sarcastic but I forgot to put a little smiley thing.

As for your backyard I heard Satan is preparing a lawsuit against you because your yard is an instance of disloyal competition with Hell. Your banning priviledges will therefore be suspended till the case is decided.

Though watching the 100 pound guys is like watching a decent dog fight.

Ricardo Mayorga Vs Vernon Forrest 1 and 2
Ward Ghatti saga
Spadafora Vs Dorin
Roy Jones Vs John Ruiz
Lewis and Vitali
Grant Vs Guinn
Corrie Sanders Vs Vladimir K
Rocky Juarez Vs Diaz
Tua Vs Rahman 2 times

All respectable bouts, there are more out there with some non big name fighters on espn and fox sports. The fights are there, you just gotta find them.

I guess what I am saying is , The heavy weight divison is a little weak and has been for some time. The big names are all getting to the end of their careers and there does not seem to be anyone picking up the torch

As for the lighter weight classes....I would ecpect better matchups and bouts.

Dominick Guinn is gonna be a multi time heavyweight champion within 2 years. Mark my words. Your right the heavyweight ranks are running thin.

140 lb divison is the best divison in boxing right now.

Too bad its one of the few weights thats really full of talent

Agreed

I wanna see ghatti vs kostya for the title but it wont happen because lame ass spadafora jumped weight classes while ducking dorin and wants a piece of ghatti. He's gonna get KTFO

Watch the amateurs. They show some matches on fox sports

All sports suck compared to MMA.
I can't even watch boxing anymore--only the BIG fights, and even then, I'm dissappointed.
I'm actually alittle pissed off at MMA- I used to like watching football, hockey, baseball, basketball, etc. Now they all pale in comparison to MMA-so much, in fact, I won't even watch Wrestling anymore. And Haru is/was, a die hard WWE fan.

MMA better stick around forever or Haru is screwed for entertainment.

Gatti would kill Spadafora. Gatti has power, staminia, a chin made of stone and a heart made of iron.

I am looking foreward to see If TUA is going to go any where. His last fight sucked but I think he may go all the way
