I don't really care for that show The Contender. I'm a mild boxing fan, and from time to time I'll watch certain fights depending on what mood I'm in or if I know one of the fighters. But that show really bores the crap out of me, and I wish it was on a channel other than ESPN. I don't watch a lot of TV, and 90% of the time I'm watching ESPN regardless of what is on it. It upsets me that they show The Contender like three times a day. Who the f*ck wants to see it that much?

Bahaha Rahman lost to Maskaev AGAIN. I love it.

 

Hasim Rahman is the biggest underacheiver and joke of a world champion ever. Well, not really to that extent but seriously, if James Toney would just lose 20 pounds instead of gaining it between fights, he would beat all these chumps in the division, he'd probably beat Wlad too. But hes a fatty and keeps getting fatter so he isnt getting any better.

 

Funny enough as a huge fatass and being 38 years old, hes still totally competative in the division. Ouch. I love him though, he owns my boxing heart with his nearly unparralelled knowledge in the ring and his ridiculous speeches.

It's good to have you back menace..yes yes Rahman lost to Maskaev again, completeting the whole USSR sweep over American heavyweights. Don't care much about that whole thing though, just as long as there are more entertaining fights going on..what the hell happened to your boy James Toney against Rahman? Was he training at McDonalds? James Toney should counter the hell out of Sam Peter with ease; I just hope he comes in at atleast 225..

 

Rahman isn't really an underachiever, I think he is more of a 1 hit wonder..He lost to John Ruiz and an extremely past his prime Evander Holyfield after losing to Lewis in the 2nd fight.

Clinton Woods vs Glen Johnson Rounds 1-3

 

Clinton Woods vs Glen Johnson Rounds 4-6

 

Clinton Woods vs Glen Johnson Rounds 7-9

 

Clinton Woods vs Glen Johnson Rounds 10-12

 

Amir Khan vs Ryan Barrett

 

The fight was even from the off until the ninth, when Johnson turned on 'turbo' and went completely mad. He made two great punches that round and a few brilliant combinations as well, but that round helped Clinton rather hinder him, because it tired Johnson badly and it allowed Clinton to work on him more and ultimately led to Johnson's downfall. The fight was very close, hell Glen Johnson's trainer told the fighter 'you win this round, you win this fight' and in the end Woods had just a little bit more energy and determination to take him over the winner's line and finally beat Glen Johnson. While Amir Khan finished another one of his 'professional bouts' within two minutes...

Ah well this thread got pretty damn inactive tounge.gif

 

Anywho, some pretty interesting fights this weekend, on HBO we have Winky Wright vs Ike Quartey, Winky Wright is probably the toughest fighter you can face and I think he is going to outclass Quartey here. On the undercard we have the return of Jeff Lacy (coming off his brutal loss to Joe Calzaghe) vs Vitali Typsko..I don't really know much of Typsko but I expect Lacy to do well in his comeback fight, he still has a lot of potential.

 

On Showtime, we have, another of my favourite fights, Miguel Cotto fighting fellow Puertro Rican and hot undefeated prospect Carlos Quintana. This Quintana guy has all the tools to beat Cotto, great footwork, solid workrate, good power and awareness. However, I feel Cotto's brutal body work will wear him down and KO him. We will see how that goes.

Jermain Taylor beat Kassim Ouma pretty handily last night to retain his title. Pretty entertaining fight to watch, even if it was a bit one-sided. I liked Ouma's heart, in that even though he was getting hit with big shots all night, he kept pressing Taylor. However, Taylor was just too good for him and didn't allow him to throw any big barrages. Quality stuff from Jermain overall

I've been wrong about Boxing recently... i thought Kasim Ouma was gunna b taylor's biggest upcoming challange a few months back... i guess i was wrong cause he had no shot...

 

By the way... next Taylor Wright fight... No way that sh*t ends in a Draw... Unanimous - Taylor.. guaranteed... not majority... unanimous.. Taylor is like Lennox Lewis... u get a draw or better against him... no f*ckin way ur winning the next time around...

I like Jermain Taylor, I thought he would of KOed Ouma but Ouma proved to have a very solid chin. I don't know why Taylor receives so much criticism from boxing skeptics, the guy fights the best, his "warmup" fight was with a very good Kassim Ouma for heaven's sake, a guy who throws 100+ punches a round (not against Taylor though wink.gif)

Castillo vs Ngoudjo and Ricky 'The Hitman' Hatton vs Urango this weekend, anybody going to be watching? Can't wait for the Hatton v Urango fight, I reckon it'll be a good test for Ricky, but he can beat him, but hopefully if he does it well, then a nice fight like Mayweather, Marquez or Barrera could on the books which would be great!

I hope Castillio destorys Hatton. It will be happen, as long as both of these damn idiots get their weight in first. Should be a good fight, if done, but I really hope Hatton gets beat.

Horrible ending to the Hatton-Urango fight, the last few rounds were just dull. Now that Ngoudjo-Castillo fight was a very good fight.

 

Tomorrow there is a pretty interesting fight, undefeated lightheavy champion Tomasz Adamek (known for his 2 wars vs Aussie Paul Briggs) faces young undefeated contender, Chad Dawson. I have seen both fighters and here are some clips of Adamek's war with Briggs (first fight);

 

 

 

 

 

Adamek is in the red trunks, Briggs in the black; so if you have a subscription to Showtime, definately think it is worth watching.
