Don't talk overreaction when in fact you made $h!t up. That is all.

It was a close, competitive and exciting fight, not FOTY though. What made it exciting was Jones eating up all of Brook's attack, walking through them and throwing back. The excitement came from the uncertainty in whether Brook would survive (reminded me a bit of Khan/Maidana).

Wasn't impressed with Brook's excuses in the post match interview though, was even less impressed by the lack of professionalism in his corner between rounds.

Very fair opinion. That fight had me on the edge of my seat.

This is an overreaction though. Saying that Jones would beat all these fighters after losing a fight that was a test for a young fighter is going overboard. You are jumping both guys over a lot of fighters.

Yeah I was thinking Salido vs Lopez 2 was a little one sided but the other mention of Huck vs Afolabi is definitely a solid contender.

Absolute slugfest.

Loved that fight and the first one, hope they go for a trilogy.

No, it's my opinion. If you don't agree, then don't agree. What is in fact an overreaction is you coming into my tread & claiming I said something that I didn't. That, or we can settle for it being a big, fat lie.

You're really going to act like a prick when you try to say people said stuff they did not say every single day? I use a little hyperbole, and you act like a prick. Fine.

The second half was dam good but the first half was quiet. People tend to overrate fights that were not supposed to be exciting.

Agree with TS on all his points. But I thought Afolabi-Huck II was a bit better.

To me, you're the 1 pricking. If you don't agree I have no problem with that. But don't act like your opinion is gospel over mine.
