    I don't care I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks. Starting with the Rios Alvarado fight.Their first fight upstaged Donaire Nishioka main event.

    Here's a link to their first fight

    Yup. Really looking forward to Mayweather v Guerrero. I think Guerrero may have what it takes to trouble him. Also do people actually believe Mayweather can stay undefeated for the next 30 months as per the Showtime deal he signed to?

    Haroon Khan's pro debut should be interesting. Hopefully Amir will beat Diaz to rematch with Garcia.

    Now when it comes to Garcia v Judah, I honestly want Garcia to win but at the same time would like to see Zab claim victory just to hear some of Angel Garcia's "truth".

    Yeah, that was great. Brutal war. Rios was in big trouble. If he keeps fighting the way he does his career won't last long.

    Garcia should beat Judah who has been finished for years and was never really top level. That said, Garcia is limited and will be beaten soon.

    Garcia 'should' but you never know, especially in a sport like boxing. Judah does pack a heavy left hand. Plus, Garcia is slow, flat- footed and tends to swing wildly at times.

    Having said that, I'll still be going for Garcia just so Khan can get back in to the ring with him.

    True. Though 5 years ago I would have given Judah a better shot. Judah has lost hand speed, footspeed, reflexes are diminished and as always he will probably fade down the stretch. Looking forward to it though.

    Some really good fights there.

    One week after all this is the one I'm probably most looking forward to - Matthysse v Peterson.

    Thanks GT. I love it when a list comes together.

    Looking forward to seeing Andre Ward back in action. Tough fight to come back from a long break


  • #2


    Just hope he's fully healed. 14 months is a ridiculously long time to be out of action in his position. He needs to be in the public eye.

    It's just over 10 months since the surgery so should be ok, but I guess we will find out.

    Ward makes weight for tomorrow night. Rodriguez two pounds over.


  • #2


    Anyone watching the Ward fight? Round 3 atm. Ward starting to figure out Rodriguez. Very scrappy though.


  • #2


    Ward is instigating a lot of this with his constant clinching


  • #2


    Rodriguez could easily get DQ'd here.


  • #2


    Easy UD win for Ward. Never even close to being tested. Rodriguez didn't throw a great punch all night. Ward still looks as good as ever.


  • #2


    Ward is hard to watch sometimes, he's a dirty but clever fighter. I think he's a bit untouchable at the moment and that includes Golovkin.


  • #2


    SOG is comfortably the 2nd best fighter in the world today.

    I think he's very effective, but yes, difficult to watch at times. Bit too scrappy!

    I'm a big fan of Ward but that was one seriously ugly fight last night.


  • #2


    The fight was ugly, but Rodriguez came to make it nothing other than a mess. Ward is very impressive. The speed, pop & timing of his combinations is top notch. Super jab as well.


  • #2


    Did anybody notice that Ward almost single handedly won the fight with his left?

    Ward is very comfortably the 2nd best boxer in the world today. There are only 3 boxers right now who have pre-eminent technical skills and ring IQ and Ward is one of them. But unlike the other two Ward is comfortable fighting in a phone booth, headbutting, elbowing, roughing it up, bullying opponents in the pocket. Ward will hurt you from outside, from mind-range and in close. Particularly at mid-range he is devastating. He is the most complete fighter in the world today.

    His jab is behind only WK in boxing right now. The difference is Wlad usually has a reach advantage, whereas Ward has a reach disadvantage. That's why it's amazing that he outjabs opponents. He bends to his right and whips it in, very unorthodox and with power, using his back, not from the shoulder. He puts it on your nose, sternum and stomach. Excellent punch, so much pop and so much timing. His left hand is a very well developed weapon all round, with a leaping hook from outside and a lovely hook to the liver inside. Beautiful to watch. He can beat you leading, countering or in a brawl. Excellent fighter, has it all except one shot KO power really.

    He's a real nice guy and doesn't go around making statements and calling people out so never really will be a cash cow. If he was from Mexico or something it would be different, but if you're from the US and not P4P #1 and not a brash trash talker, you won't make waves or have a huge fan base. The purists will love him though. He fights so ugly and yet it's so technical. Love watching him.

    Ward for me is an ATG. As gene mentions, he is complete. He doesn't look all that pretty, but you don't win gold in the Olympics unless you can box. He can box with the best of them and slug and stink with the best of them. And he's damn slippy too.


  • #2


    Anyone think there is a case for him as P4P #1?

    Of course. He should be number 1.
