Re: Boxing thread

Amir Khan just beat the living shit out of Paulie Malignaggi tonight. Total destruction. Totally different class of fighters. Amir has really stepped up a level in my eyes, I always thought he was good, but man, that was shocking.

I'd say he was good, but not spectacular. Did what he had to do, good jab. Actually thought the southpaw in the previous bout - Cortiz? - put on the best display against Nate Campbell. Was quite outstanding.

That's what was shocking to me though. He wasn't overwhelming or going above himself and still dominated easily. I'd like to see Amir fight the winner of Bradley vs. Alexander, but especially Maidana, because he will make a fight and that will be exciting with the speed/skills/pop of Khan and pure power of Maidana. And Victor Ortiz, yeah, he's really good, high level foot and hand speed and really good accuracy and pop with his punches. Campbell looked washed up, though. Ortiz quit vs. Maidana and I have a hard time forgetting that match, but he's matured and gotten better since then.

Re: Boxing thread

Khan all the way!!

He fought well! Malignaggi couldn't touch him.

I say next for Khan should either be Ortiz, Maidana or Katsidis....

I don't think he will either fight Bradley or Alexander in his next fight.

That's true. Malinaggi was slippery to begin with, but after a few rounds Khan started to pick him off pretty comfortably. Maidana against Khan would be good. Ortiz really impressed me, particularly his footwork - never seemed to slow at all. Okay, so he lost that time to Maidana, but Khan's loss to Prescott was far worse and it's clear he's learned from it. Looks as though Ortiz has done the same.

Re: Boxing thread

Khan was always too powerful even if he didn't go mad against a counterpuncher like Malignaggi.

Hatton was fat when he spanked Paulie. There aren't many big fights at LW though, only welter.

Re: Boxing thread

I can't believe they haven't banned this barbaric sport yet. Brain damage much? :retard:

It is somewhat entertaining though...

It goes without saying that when Ingemar Johansson retired the sport lost all its relevance and was taken over by dope fiends.

I can't believe that video that popped up a few days before of the Margarito team making fun of Roach's parkinsons. SMH

pac of ’04 - ’05 (jmm I, el terrible I) would easily lose to fraudweather on points. however, he’s no longer the same one-dimensional fighter (double jab followed by straight left) and has improved his power and maintained his footspeed as he’s climbed up in weight.

floyd, on the other hand, looked vulnerable against mosely and has definitely lost some footspeed (due to low activity and age). he’ll have major problems trying to fend off manny for 12 rounds and will eventually get caught and hurt. he’s never faced a fighter with such a high workrate or dynamic punching power, and with his pillow fists, i just don’t see how he can hurt manny. he’ll also turn 34 yo next year so i don’t expect his speed to suddenly return.

prediction:

floyd dominates the early rounds with his slick counter-punching skills and jab, but he eventually gets caught in the middle rounds and manny takes over.

115-113....pac by unanimous decision.
