    In hindsight, its not like Chavez opened up too much anyways. Or maybe Canelo decided he was just going to showcase his boxing game that day. IDK.

    Is Salido ducking Lomachenko to possibly fight on the undercard of the Mayweather fight? True, Salido fighting Davis is still a hard Fight and a path to a belt.

    Well looks like UFC will be suspending Nick Diaz for an anti-doping violation. Apparently he did not check in and got three whereabouts violations that turns into an anti-doping violation. Pretty strange to have to suspend someone not actively working for you though...

    Jeff Horn, an unheralded boxer from Australia, defeated Manny Pacquiao tonight.

    Now I know Pacman is no longer in his prime, but this is still a shocker.

    Thanks, surrender.

    Well I havnt seen it, but it sounds like yet another in a long list of recent terrible boxing decisions by the judges

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    Just watched it. The only way Manny was walking out with a win that night was if he KO'ed Horn. Some of the most corrupt judging ever. The ref was shit as well as he let Horn get away with headbutts and elbows the whole fight without even one warning.


    I will say this though, the fact that this bum even went the distance with Manny is proof enough to me that Manny needs to retire.

    Pushdown, knockdown or a little bit of both?

    I think Dana originally posted it.

    I think it's all kind of silly. I've been out of the loop with boxing for the past decade so I have no idea who this Paulie guy is. I don't really see anything special about the video one way or the other. I clicked on the Mayweather vs Conor subforum over on Sherdog and the entire first page was threads about this Paulie guy, it was like wow, I've never even heard of this guy before. Seems like this is all orchestrated stuff to get the fight trending on the internet or something.

    We're still a few weeks out from the fight but I can't help but feel underwhelmed by how they've promoted this fight so far. You had the four press conference event which was fun but aside from that it's like they are just depending on the fight to promote itself, all feels a bit rushed too. I am super hyped for the fight but as we get closer to showtime I can't help but feel like $100 is charging a bit too much for it, $50-$60 would have been fine, hell I'd be ok with $75 but $100 is really a bit much for any fight PPV unless it's a Pride-style super stacked 4 hour Shockwave card or something.

    I'm actually starting to think this fight doesn't sell as many PPV's as being predicted(even by me earlier on), I think it does well to break 3 million buys. Timing and pricing and everything is off for 5+ million buys I think, my final prediction is somewhere around 3.4-3.5 million buys, which is still pretty fucking great.

    Holding and hitting is illegal in boxing. Off balance would be ruled a knock down in a fight most likely. Obviously he isn't too concerned about knockdowns as the fight wasn't being scored a million dollars
