    Yeah, its a pretty sad state now, we need an exciting, young heavyweight because they are all people seem to care about.
    When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

      No ***********, but if you haven't realized yet, nobody is into boxing like we are. Hell, just look at this forum, me, you, and like 3 other posters are the only people at all interested in boxing.


      I was gonna have some friends over for the Castillo vs Corrales fight but than Castillo's *********** muhfuckin ass didn't make weight. My one friend had "F--- Castillo!" in his away message the entire week lol.


      I'm definitely converting people but it's not an easy task.
      i love boxing, and i know the boxers and love watching the fights. But I cant retain knowledge from fights. When i watch them i see whats going on and catch on to the strategies, but that all gets overshadowed by the excitement or boredom of the fight that i cant retain what i was just yelling during the fight. Im a fan, just very unknowledgeable

        An article on the Hopkins vs Tarver fight. Pretty much repeats everything I've alread told you guys. Unless you're a HUGE boxing fan, like as big as me and Rob or bigger, you really shouldn't waste your money on this fight. There's like a 1 in 30 chance that it will be exciting. Keep in mind... 30 fights in boxing is like a 10 year career...

          This was the same thing I was about 5 years ago. I'd watch the fights if I was home or if it was convenient to me, I'd enjoy them but retain nothing from them including the names of the fighters that I had watched.


          Times have changed though and I've grown to absolutely love the sport.


          I think if you actually try to be a boxer it makes you appreciate it that much more. I'd bet that 80% of the users on this site couldn't box someone for 3 (3 minute) rounds... It's much harder than it seems.

          Fighters who still have power in the 12th round are in as good as, or better shape than the most premier players in the NFL.

          Baseball players, Basketball players, they really have no idea what it's like to be in the physical condition boxers are in (below heavyweight division of course, those guys are fat slobs who should be fighitng at light heavy or super middle).

            i definitely didnt expect it to be exciting. Only time i was excited during a Hopkins fight recently was when he was finally losing to Taylor. I remember he fought Eastman before his duo of fights with Taylor. One of the most boring fights ive ever witnessed

              Total sidenote...

              A guy on another forum was in AC today, at the Borgata, and saw Osi, Arrington, Plaxico Burress, and Richard Seymour. He said his bro met Vernon Davis as well. A couple more sports names, but those are the 4 football players he mentioned.

                        I pretty much called that Hopkins fight to a T. I know my boxing people :P , don't listen to the odds makers in Vegas, listen to Primetime.

                        Cotto screwed him up (might have broke his jaw they say) but couldn't get the KO. Oh well, good performance from him and it looks like he's moving up to 147.

                            Didnt see the Hopkins fight yet, but heard he looked amazing. I am glad for that, I wanted to see him go out on top. Cotto messed up Paulie, broke his jaw, nose, and cheekbone, and cut him over the eye and on his mouth. He didnt look great, but he got the win, now he can move up to 147 where he will be more comfortable.

                              Wow. I would like to see a pic of that! I was reading what happened before that fight on fightnews.com and I saw how many exciting fights there were before that fight and I figured you were having a great time.
