    And the fact is that these are all made up categories that resemble styles of famous boxers over the years. Does it really matter if someone is a slugger vs a brawler? What are the subtle differences between the 2? Also, ... Couldn't a volume puncher be a swarmer if he is winning on work rate? Maybe a pressure fighter has shitty technique but the slugger throws punches with good technique. It depends on the fighter. I love when I read online articles that make these definitions 'absolutes' lmao. Have you guys ever these old school adages: Swarmer beats Boxer Slugger beats Swarmer Boxer beats Slugger Just as simple as ... " With a southpaw ALWAYS keep your lead foot outside his." .... Maybe, ..Maybe not.

    Hmmm, Canelo by split. I don't think size is an issue only because if I heard correctly Canelo's last fight he weighed in a few lbs lighter. He looks bigger than GGG but I think it's more appearance than anything else. They are both good fighters. I am rooting for Canelo more because I can't stand Golovkins mouth lol

    LOL...please don't speak on things you know nothing of. And I am speaking to the two 70 year old boxing prudes in the room. I stopped listening to them when they claimed Caenelo was an overrated bum. I accepted that shitty opinion but leave MMA out of your 70 year old mouths.

    Weak... The attitude anyway. I saw him (Davis) on Instagram talking about the people he thought were with him turning their backs ... To lose a belt and potentially be fined over 2lbs is big shit. Making weight is HARD sometimes..esp if it's not a weight you can easily maintain but at this level.. I expect guys to make weight by the time they step on the scale. smh Hmm.... lol

    Andre Ward retires from boxing. Will he stay retired? So many come back. Props to any fighter retiring from boxing before boxing retires them. He did it....

    By you, maybe. I remember him for not bitching out against Azumah Nelson when 99.99% of the fighters would. He said he wanted to win the belt the right way so he took his chance against the Professor.

    BY FRANCISCO SALAZAR Sergey Kovalev is moving on with his career. And he will do so without the services of trainer John David Jackson. Will Kovalev have a trainer before his next fight, which is scheduled to take place in a little over two months time? According to Kovalev, do not hold your breath. Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 knockouts) will face light heavyweight contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy on November 25 inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The 12-round bout will air live on HBO. The Shabranskyy bout will mark Kovalev’s return, since his eighth round stoppage loss to Andre Ward on June 17. After spending the summer visiting family and defending a master’s thesis in his native Russia, Kovalev has already begun training for the Shabranskyy fight. The notable omission from this training camp is Jackson, who had been in the corner of Kovalev since 2012. During that time, Kovalev won three world title belts and was considered the best light heavyweight in boxing. Then came the two fights with Ward, the second of which was punctuated by the stunning knockout loss. For Kovalev, the events on that day are spotty, at best. “I don’t remember anything from the middle of the second round on,” Kovalev told a group of boxing scribes Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas while waiting to watch the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin fight that evening. “I woke up from the right hand by Andre Ward in the eighth round. I don’t know what was wrong with my body during the fight.”

    looked stupid how? if I could predict every single fight correctly, I'd be in a mansion in Tahiti. why do you feel like you have to be the savior for everything mma here? you get so offended by what I say. so offended that you jacked off when I said ggg would destroy freckles but he didn't. imagine if canelo had won? you'd have worn out your dildo.

    LOL...face it you looked stupid and you are trying to desperately save face. He has been a force in boxing and there is no other way of looking at it. And no I was a giddy teenager for UFC 1 and have never stopped following. If you think those were good fights compared to now you must have been jerking off over pictures of Roberto Duran instead of watching the fights. That was a no skill spectacle back then. And to criticize UFC match making when you follow a sport that cant put 2 fighters together that everyone wants to see is fucking ridiculous lol Yeah! That former boxer learned how to actually be a well rounded fighter dumb ass! Not a one dimensional "pugilist" like all the rest of your so called heroes. McGregor was beaten by a boxer....doing boxing! LOL...Floyd wouldn't dare step into McGregors world. You, Lederman and Lampley should get together and live in your land of delusion.

    Hollywood actor Jamie Foxx is preparing to play former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson in a biopic of the controversial boxer. The 49-year-old actor - who previously won an Academy Award for his portrayal of music star Ray Charles - has agreed a deal to star as the New York-born icon, whose career was blighted by numerous controversies. A source said: ''Jamie went to a couple of sessions with his trainer in the gym for this movie. 'He looked quite good throwing a few jabs and crosses against the pads. But when he tried a bit of sparring, he didn't fare so well. 'He took a couple of hooks and walked out. He knows if he wants to play Iron Mike then he needs to improve that side of his game.'' Legendary director Martin Scorsese is reportedly keen to helm the project, while Mike has also given Jamie a helping hand with his preparations. The insider told The Sun newspaper: ''Mike knows it is Jamie's dream to play him and they have talked about gym work and how he could put him through his paces. ''The only thing is that if they go sparring and Mike connects, Jamie may never make any movie again.'' MIke, 51, is still the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history. Some of his career controversies included failed marriage to actress Robin Givens, a 1992 rape conviction, and being temporarily banned from the sport in 1997 after the infamous rematch with Evander Holyfield - where Tyson was disqualified in the third round after biting off a piece of Holyfield's ear. Looking forward to the new movie, Mike recently admitted: ''A lot of people aren't going to like the things I've done in my life.'' http://www.boxingscene.com/jamie-foxx-preparing-play-mike-tyson-new-motion-picture--120435

    Choco struggled with his size, southpaw stance & akward physical style. Definetly a bad matchup. Rungvisai has a loss on his record to Cuadras who is a boxer mover type so I'd like to check that fight out next to see exactly what went down. The Naoya vs Rungvisai sounds good.

    I dont think anyone could argue that Connors punching technique was poor, but that is irrelevant tbh and doesnt come into the equation when you consider as a mixed martial artist he will only touch upon each of the disciplines without completely mastering all of the forms of combat he is employing during a fight - there are simply too many techniques and too many variables of styles required when you are facing opponents that utilise all forms of strikes, so technique will always be conceded for speed an power when you have such little time to learn a discipline. Floyd on the other hand is regarded as the finest fighter of his generation and an ATG in a singularly disciplined form of combat that only allows punching! In relation to the fitness aspect of the fight; Connor conditions his body for a completely different skill set and again a time constraint of learning when to attack, defend and use the space inbetween your opponent to get a breather isnt something you can gauge over one training camp in your first ever boxing bout against one of the finest boxers ever and most definitely not something Floyd could do in an MMA fight!! Connor should have been taken out with ease in theory, but regardless of the time Floyd has had away from the ring, he couldnt do it because Connor was so unorthodox!! Elbows come from Muay Thai btw and not KB

    How many of you believe FLOYD WOULD LAST THAN 90 SECONDS in an MMA bout?????????? he would be extremely lucky to go that long; it would be truly embarassing and believe me Connor could go eat fucking doughnuts for a 6 week camp, with no sparring or conditioning and still be able to beat him without having to use kicks or elbows!!

    That he didnt have a moral victory: regardless of how long Floyd was out or how seriously he took the training, he should have humiliated Connor but he never!!

    I am NOT a McGregor fan, ... and all of the hype has been a total circus. But .. How is it going to go? KO, DQ, Or is McGregor going to shock the world? Predictions? Instead of taking the easy guess of Mcgregor getting dq'd or landing the luckiest shot in boxing and getting a KO, I am going to look at history. ... I will say UD for Mayweather and that it goes the distance. Only because of the track record, and although Mcgregor is a bit of a clown and in over his head.. it's safe to assume the man has been in the gym knowing what he's facing. (Like way more than what the stupid videos show.) **Cool Vid by Beats. This kind of nostalgia and shit talking is what boxing is about anyway :-) Even if you hate him haha.

    Even if he conditioned enough to go the distance I agree he looked a bit dry at the weigh in. And then we have Floyd breezing in under the weight limit. They will be far apart in weight from each other by fight time. I can't say I think added lbs will do anything to help McGregor against Floyd's defense.

    I guess he has to try and cram years worth of experience into one training camp, so I dont hold it against him going for it in every sparring session as though it was the real thing; he has little choice tbh
