good post guys, I agree Chad, he's been in too many wars...I wouldn't be surprised if he gets put on his ass a few times tonight.

hey Gay, sorry for the late reply, I'll do two weeks with you..

I'm at work, what time is the Froch-Groves fight, around 2-3?

thanks for the updated article Subb, I hope he pulls through. Like you said, people expect you to go out on your shield, and you're a coward if you don't do so. 

All those Russians, Eastern Euros etc are all tough as nails, and will die in the ring if need be.


i remember acelino freitas, pretty good fighter, took a beating from corrales and after 3rd knockdown said he was through and people were calling him coward. he got dropped hard 3 rounds in a row and fought back hard after the first 2, in the end he was seriously outgunned. i was shaking my head at people booing, you paid to see a fight and he gave one and after being dropped 3 rounds and no hope of winning he quit. fans sometimes act if they paid to see an execution.


yea it's a shame, it's mainly from the fickle N. American fan base. They can never be satisfied. We love this sport for various reasons, not just the violence but also the sweet science. Being around fighters, I definitely respect these guys a lot more, and I do feel more concerned now for their well being. At the end of the day, they aren't fighting for our pleasure, but to feed their families etc.

Fuck it I pressed the order button. Atleast it'll be exciting for aslong as it lasts, and I wanna see Pac win before he retires.

tbi0904 - Pretty sad about Mago. His corner was in a bit of a tough spot, he was landing enough hard shots to think he may come back but was taking a beating in the process. The culture of boxing is "go out on your shield" you know? No Mas is still a punchline. Oscar is still derided as a coward and pussy for not getting off his stool against Pacquiao even though he knew he had enough. I love boxing but that's one of the shittier aspects of the sport. I hope Mago isn't permanently injured from the fight. The stroke part has me worried.

If a blue could help me out, here's an article from SB Nation. While I don't agree with a fair amount of the article (FRAT warning: it's long) the overall theme is dead on. It's an interesting read. Curious what you guys think.

I like watching Groves fight.. but he seems to have a penchant for flat billed caps, therefore I hope he gets bingoed!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news....

 

But Rios is going to get stopped... possibly quicker than Alvarado did recently.

 

 

 

The Marketing for this fight was great.  But there is no fight here.  I'll be watching it just the same though.

Pac hasn't had a knockout in 4 years. Seeing him get a stoppage will bring back awesome memories.

I dont think it will be a KO.

 

I think it will just get stopped.

 

Rios is headed for actual Retardation with the shots he is willing to eat.

Too many wars for Froch, he can't box with a quicker guy.

Froch keeps that jab hand down, Groves is too quick with the counter over the top.
