    I know there a few Boxing fans on the board. @evil1 @BasinBictory

    Chime in on here whenever. We can shoot the shit.

    a few thoughts..

    Tony Harrison took a upset last weekend v Willie Nelson. He was winning the fight before getting KO'd in the 9th. I personally dig Harrison, but can admit he needed to be battle tested a bit more to go up against a seasoned pro like Nelson.

    Cotto-Canelo likely for Nov 21st.

    Carl Frampton is making his US debut on Saturday afternoon on CBS.

    Punk ass Cesar Chavez Jr. is trying his comeback Saturday night on Showtime.

    P4P best fighter in the world is probably a Flyweight from Nicaragua.

    Can Deontay Wilder save the Heavyweight Division in the states?

    GGG v Andre Ward is a wet dream. Though, Ward should just stay at 168.

    Saw the Frampton-Gonzales fight today. Had seen the heavyweight undercard that preceded it and remembered why I hated watching heavyweights compared to the lighter weight classes.

    The lightweight fights were like watching wildcats tear into each other. Heavyweights look like walruses fighting.

    Frampton I think came in too cocky, underestimated his opponent, but ultimately, as they say in soccer, his quality shone through and proved decisive.

    Floyd Mayweather - Gennady Golovkin: engage.

    I don't see how they could find a weight that would work. Mayweather's fight weight is about 150 lbs. Golovkin might meet the 160 lb weigh in limit for middleweight but his fight night weight is closer to 170.

    I know, and finding a catch weight of somewhere in the 157-162 range could be doable, but I don't see either party willing to make that concession.

    Still, that would be about the only huge money fight currently available.

    Cotto-Canelo will be monster money/fight. Even at a catch weight of 155. Messicans v Ricans.

    Golden Boy Productions is trying to put together GGG v Lemieux. Get that in before Lemieux's mandatory challenger fight. That'd be very good. Probably not PPV tho.

    Roman Gonzalez v Brian Viloria on the GGG-Lemieux undercard. Should be entertaining as hell.

    Mares/Santa Cruz should be v good tomorrow night on ESPN.

    I'd be all over Mosley-Mayorga if it was on cable. They're charging a $60 on PPV for these guys.

    shit, I might actually still buy it. :laughing:

    Just watched a replay of Mosely-Mayorga via youtube.

    Geez - did Mayorga train at all for this fight? He looked as flabby and out of shape as some of Kimbo Slice's youtube opponents. At least it was entertaining, Mayorga doing his usual taunting, Mosely trying to be serious, but both of them taking lots of wild swings that mostly failed to connect. It was like watching a couple of guys in a schoolyard fighting - which is really what I honestly prefer to see in a prizefight. Technical masters like Mayweather are undoubtedly effective, but they're as much fun to watch as a 7-6 football game.

    How long until Floyd Mayweather unretires? He's 49-0 and I'm absolutely certain he'll come out of retirement to get that 50-0 mark to sit atop the ranks of legends, but at the moment, I can't see anyone really wanting to fight him unless they also had a $100 million payday.
