Hi buddy, i meant to get back to you about Billy Cobham. I've been listening to some of his latest stuff, and it sounds really good. He's drifting more into "real jazz" territory, and i really like it. You're in for a treat!
what did you think of the fights bro? right when i got home from work, my uncle told me what happened. i ended up watching the first three fights later that night though. disappointed in matthysse coming up short. i really thought he was going to knock garcia off the throne. molina again in a stinker. i really hope he gets angulo or canelo next. he needs an aggressive opponent imo to redeem himself. kirkland fought so nonchalant in their fight as well molina clinching and what not. smith just didn't want to fight. and we obviously saw the spinks fight live so there's no need to get into that. frustrating stuff, haha.
Yeah, i think Canelo would have done better as a brawler, like Cotto fought him. Pressure and non-stop power punching, but don't know if even that would have worked, he would have gassed earlier, and Floyd would just avoid getting hit.
He didn't need to add the catchweight, the outcome would have been the same.
awesome man. yeah, i'm going to go straight home after work and watched them online. man, i really hope molina and matthysse win saturday. those are the two guys i'm really pulling for. overall though, i hope it's a great night of boxing.
where are you going to watch the fights next saturday? Mayweather41-0 and i were playing to hit up a casino to watch it there, but unfortunately for me i have to work that night. i'm going to turn off my phone the entire night and just download/stream the fights when i get home. you rooting for any of the fighters on the card? i'm going with cano, molina, and matthysse. i'm expecting mayweather to win (like everyone), but it would be nice to see alvarez upset him. it makes history as well as creates a new star in the sport. in the end, i just hope it's a good fight.
pettis said in the post fight presser that henderson verbally quit so that's why he released before the ref actually broke it up and waved it off like it usually is done. but yeah, it definitely didn't live up to what i expected. pettis is the man, i'm so glad he won, i was rooting for him, but i did not expect him to catch henderson in an armbar, especially in the first round. hopefully pettis is champ for a while, he's such an entertaining fighter. have you seen his last two fights? both impressive stoppages/knockouts.
i was able to catch it earlier today. i'm so glad pettis won. i've been following his career since he became wec champ (first fight against henderson.) what did you make of the fight? i honestly thought it was going to be a competitive fight. henderson seemed to improve since the loss to pettis years back, i guess he just got caught.
