The Boxing Thread

His toe did look very bad though. Still he knew that it was broken three weeks ago and should have adjusted his gameplan to compenstate. The plan seemed to be to throw an overhand right, forcing Wlad to move back like he always does and quickly follow up with another right to catch him. A lack of mobility seemed to put that plan out of action.

just re-read the thread title and didn't realise it was a specialist boxing thread so i'm prepared for the negs.

Mind you, given that i'm already on -191 and scourge of humanity it probably can't get any worse.

so what's some good fights from this year I should watch to restore my faith in boxing?

Along with the mentioned Berto- Ortiz.

Morales vs Maidana

Rios vs Acosta

Arce vs Vasquez

Not close to any of them in terms of action is Hopkins vs Pascal II. It was historic and entertaining in its own weird way though. Best Hopkins fight in years too.

Check Donaire vs Montiel as well. Donaire after pissing around for years returns to the big time with one hell of a statement.

OH MY TOE HURT MUMMY OH MY TOE.

I'm glad he got beat.

His pre-match posturing was all utterly pathetic; and it seemed clear that it was more through fear than anything. He was afraid of Klitty, and it showed.

Maybe Haye should have concentrated on boxing more than his TV programmes and being a celeb.

A shame that when we get a guy with a sniff of talent he gave it up to be a celeb and than acted like a dick before this fight.

Even in winning Vlad is still being a gentleman. Haye would've rubbed it in his face no doubt.

See there's the difference. He was even rather classy in the warm up, despite Haye being a total dickwad.

Really glad Haye lost with his twattishness; he didn't deserve to win on so many levels.

After watching that dull fest of a fight, I can now see why everyone says the heavyweight division is awful these days.

Both boxers were as bad as each other really, neither of them showed any offence and basically Klitchsko won due to being taller.

I just went and rewatched some of Pacquiao's recent fights and KOs to cheer myself up. The KO of Hatton is brutal.

Go and watch pacquiao's last fight, and while your at it go and watch some of Wlads other KO fights

You and Charliemouse clearly no nothing about boxing with them posts <_<

I never claimed to know anything about boxing...

Also I watched Pacquiao's last fight live and yes, it wasn't vintage Pacquiao. I wasn't actually referring to that one, I was more referring to the Margarito fight.

I'm not quite sure what your point is. To me, entertainment in boxing is when two guys properly go at it, a la Ward vs Gatti or people get KO'd hard. Neither of those things occurred in that fight. I'm not particularly interested in Klitschko's career, but I thought I might as well watch the fight because Haye is British and it'd be interesting to see if he could actually back up his words with actions.
