LMAO at 10yr old above.

 

I had a few quid on McBride at 7/1. I knew he was going to win, I mean Tyson's been past it for a couple of years now, but he's still a great money stinner I mean he made 500%+ more than McBride in last night's fight.

I actually thought McBride would win, because I just looked back at the Danny Williams fight. After that, you could tell that he was by no means to fighter he used to be. I think McBride had a good strategy of using his weight advantage and leaning on Tyson, so Tyson got tired out. I definitely think Tyson should go into broadcasting though. Some of those interviews with him before the fight were hilarious.

Tyson is done, he's been done for a long time.

I liked Tyson Back when he was Iron Mike, I think that’s why I like Manny Pacquaio so much now. (EXACT SAME STYLE) I would like to see "Pac Man" Vs. Morales 2.

 

After Hopkins Dominates Taylor, who would you guys like to see him fight?

I want to see him fight Winky Right. Not to many ppl can make Tito look like an incompetent weenie.

So what does everythink is next for McBride? I think he will take the Danny Williams route and get a title shot but lose badly. I would like to see him win a title, but it is very unlikely. I heard he might fight Ruiz...

Tyson didnt get knocked out, he quit on his stool. I wouldnt give Mcbride that much credit, that guy is a flaming nobody. tounge.gif

 

What makes you think Johnson will beat Tarver?? No way he beat him the first time around. I couldnt belive they gave him the decision just because he was more the aggressor, he was landing very much. It was semi close but I had it for Tarver no questions asked.

 

I dont like Tarver at all, but his record speaks for itself on return matches, hopefully he wont go all half ass on Johnson like he did the first time around.

 

Mayweather for sure, Im with you on that one. Gatti will get schooled for the 7th time.

If he fights Ruiz..I hope he wins and then gets his ass kicked against a deserving fighter. Personally if you ask me, Ruiz always finds a way to get out of a jam and keep his title. As for Tarvar-Johnson 2.. For some reason I am expecting a Tarver KO and I will stick by that. I like Gatti but I think Mayweather is going to win this fight.

 

When's the Hopkins-Taylor fight? I seem of forgotten about it tounge.gif

a TKO is still a knockout....

 

point is that McBride IS a flaming nobody...and Tyson still had to fight dirty...and then quit like a lil bitch... One thing an American boxer never does is quit.... where'd his balls go?... now he's biting nipples and trying to break his opponents' arms... and on top of that quitting?...hmm...

 

i see where ur coming from wit Johnson v. Tarver II....u kno im not betting on the Johnson Tarver fight... because Tarver is obviously the better fighter...but for some reason he just looks uncomfortable when he figths Johnson... Johnson isn't fast.....doesnt have all that much power.... but he's aggressive...thats why i think he is gunna win...but i wouldnt put money on it...

 

Mayweather i might put money on...because Mayweather isn't stupid... he knows Gatti is gunna come out wanting to trade...and he knows he has to Box him... The fight is in Atlantic City....so he knows he has to knock him out..a Decision will probably go to Gatti almost no matter what...kinda like a De La Hoya @ Vegas thing...Gatti comes out trying to box...one good punch is landed..the crowd gets up and he flips out....Mayweather probably isnt gunna let it go his way...he might back off in those situations...sit back and counter... Mayweather probably isnt gunna trade with Gatti like everyone else always gets suckered into doing...

I hear rumors from a boxing forum that Kevin McBride vs John Ruiz fight for the WBA Title has been passed and will happen in late September. I'm sorry but I don't care if McBride beat a shot Tyson..he DEFINATLEY does not derseve a title.. It's just how unbelievable how things work in Boxing now. It seems if you beat Tyson you will get an automatic title shot (Danny Williams and now Kevin McBride) Ah oh well, I will edit in the site that said that McBride-Ruiz will 'happen'.

Tarver looked A LOT more confortable in this fight than he did in the last fight...which tells me that he's the better fighter (which i knew)...but also that last time he would have won but he just thought he could walk away with it...either that or he wasn't in good enough shape...but i really thought that was gunna happen again...i thought he was gunna b as uncomfortable in this fight as he was in the first one but not even close....he fought a good fight...

I just watched the Tarver-Williams fight and the Phillips-Courtey fight on TiVo. They were both pretty good. Tarver definitely won, but I thought Glen Johnson gave a good effort. After Mike Tyson last week, you also appreciate that he actually had some class, which is good for the sport of boxing. I hope Glen gets a rematch with Tarver, even though Tarver proved he was a better fighter.

 

Oh yeah, that 11th round was awesome. Too bad the 12th round set a world record for tie-ups. I understand what Tarver was trying to do, but that was boring as hell to watch.

 

Did any of you see the interview with Mayweather and Gatti in between fights? The way Mayweather ran his mouth, I would love to see him get knocked out just because it would be so damn hilarious after all of his talking.

I didn't get the chance to actually see Tarver/Johnson 2 but OB basiclly summarized what I've been hearing. I wouldn't mind seeing Gatti knock Mayweathers teeth to the back of his throat so he can't talk anymore. Hopefully Gatti can pull it off.

Yeah but he wont be remembered as actually knocking Mike Tyson out, not like Lennox actualyl knocked him out. But you know what I mean.

 

Tarver did exactly what he should have done and a could have done the first time around. Im personally not that impressed with Johnson getting FOTY last year, considering he lost to Tarver on most peoples cards, and he beat a completely unmotivated, already exposed Roy Jones. There were far more boxers to give it too that were more deserving. Anyway, what im getting at is that if they fight again I dont see Tarver losing.

 

I know alot of people hate Mayweather, but all of his personal life and his mouth aside, he is basically the most talented boxer on the entire planet. His skills are ridiculous and he is only 26-27..

 

I watched that HBO special, and I can totally see why people would hate him, he is BEYOND cocky, but he can back it up. He always has.. His mouth was just as yappy during the Corrales fight and look what he did to one of the best boxers on the planet..

 

 

As a Canadian, I will always be a Gatti fan, but he just has so little im comparison to Mayweather. The only advantage he has is the BULLsh*t 15-20 pounds he gains after the weign-in to have a huge size/power advantage over his opponents to make up for his face getting punched so much. He definatly has the chance of KOing Floyd, but I wouldnt put my money on it.

Gatti has flaws,He cuts too easily and has trouble with fast fighters.But he has good power,But Floyd Mayweather has faced bigger punchers then Gatti in Diego Corrales.

 

I dont think even his weight adavantage is a problem for Floyd as Floyd spars with Middleweights and handles them with ease.

 

Floyd will outbox Gatti in a onesided UD.

Yeah beating a weight drained weak Corrales who had his mind on other things like getting arrested and facing trial for domestic violence is a good result for any fighter.

 

Floyd's win was superb against Chico dont get me wrong.

 

But Chico has to shift 10 pounds in 2 days to make weight and also had other things on his mind,He wasnt 100%.

 

He had to go in the steam room to shift 2 pounds on the day of the weigh in.

 

Im not saying he would of beat Floyd if he was.

What im saying is that Chico wasnt himself for the fight and would of done better if he was 100%

I find this very interesting..Now usually the two fighters who are actually fighting each other are arguing during a press conference but Vivian Harris who defends his WBA title had a verbal argument with Mayweather Jr. after Gatti had left the conference. Quite interesting if you ask me, anyway, I think the 140 lb. weight division is the most talented division in boxing today.

Thats his own fault. That type of beating is un-arguable.

 

I do think Deigo would do better another time around. But he had next to no answer for Mayweathers left hook. He was on the ground before he even realized what hit him. Like 3 out of 5 times tounge.gif

 

About Vivian Harris..

 

That f*cking jobber turned down the biggest payday of his loser ass life in 750,000 to go to England to fight Hatton, and after all his trash talk he turns that down and takes a meaningless rematch in Germany with Oktay Urkal for chump change..

 

He can talk all the crap he wants. Mayweather would school him and Hatton would probably TKO him late. He is unproven.

In all honesty, I didn't even know who the f*ck he was until I read that he argued with Mayweather. Mayweather talks trash but he sure as hell can back it up, apparently not so much with Harris since you're telling me he turned down a fight with Hatton.

Harris talked SOOOOOOOOOOO much sh*t during the time that he and Hatton were negotiating.

 

The is, Vivian was/is the champ, sure. But he couldnt fill a bingohall in his hometown..

 

Hatton was guarenteeing 22,000 people and the biggest payday of Harris' life. He had no right to argue the way he did.

 

 

Alot of people say he is 'the truth' and this and that. YES hes a great boxer. But he is just as unproven as people said Hatton was before the Tszyu fight. Infact he lost to Ray Oliveira a few years back, a few years later Hatton was the first to stop Oliveira, albeit slightly older.

 

 

Im so psyched for Gatti/Mayweather. Im just as ready to watch the weigh-in.

I would really like to see the fight but I never pay for anything that is PPV. I just think it's gay... I mean if all the good boxing fights weren't on PPV, boxing would be SO much more popular then it is at the moment.

what Boxing needs...are more TOP White-American fighters... there are some white guys up there... but the Klitchko Brothers aren't exactly all-american white boys sad.gif .... Thats what boxing needs to take off... I didn't look at the numbers, but the Tyson fight should have done HUGE numbers... A White guy vs. Mike Tyson... if that didnt do good numbers, i dont kno if boxing CAN be saved at this point.

From what I've heared, the Tyson/McBride fight got somewhere between 250,000-500,000 PPV buys... I'm glad that Tyson retired because he is washed up but he sure as hell made boxing more popular.

I'm sticking with Gatti even though Mayweather may be very talented. The weigh-in was today, man they had to weigh-in at different times because they dislike each other that much. I think Gatti weighed in at 140 and Mayweather at 139.

thats cause Gatti....even tho he's only been in Jersey City a couple years.... he still talks a lot of sh*t...

 

maybe im going against Gatti all the time cause i saw him get his ass beat on the street...so maybe i dont give him the kinda credit he desearves....but Mayweather is a really talented Boxer....definatly a better Boxer...we'll see if he wants to trade wit Gatti...

Well, as you guys, I thought it would of been an a lot closer fight. I don't know why Gatti was trying to box Mayweather from the outside, that doesn't sound very smart since Mayweather is by far the superior boxer. I've only seen pictures but I heard that Mayweather knocked down Gatti after a confusion with the referee or something, could anyone who watched the fight explain this to me?

 

Haha, one thing that made my night last night was when I heard Vivian Harris LOST to Maussa...That is just plain out great. After all the trash talk he was saying to PBF...man lol. Didn't Maussa get his ass owned against Cotto??

 

@Lennox Lewis making a 'comeback'- I hope you're wrong, that is just plain out stupid.

 

Here's a pic I found from Thunder vs Lightning.
