#619317 Fight Party Pet Peeves

Posted by Franchize on 23 April 2015 - 12:18 PM

So my pops called me the other day like "hey I was thinking about ordering the fight at the house, you should come up." I live in Maryland. He lives in my hometown of NYC. Part of me wants to go but the other part doesn't feel like driving and paying all those tolls. So I call my boys here. I only have like 2 close friends I chill with here. I asked a simple question. "What yall doing for the fight." One of them takes mad long to respond...as usual The other says "nothing really." Then he says "I was thinking about having some people over." Then he says "but my boy who's a bartender said he's having a hot tub fight party and is inviting some chicks over who are straight eye candy." 

 

All I cold think of was "nigga didn't you start off with "nothing really." Looks like I might be buying this one at the crib like the last 2 and watching it alone. He fronts like he's a sports fan, but he really just likes to attend shit for the experience. We get free tickets to Wizards games, this MFer barely be watching the game. We get fights, this MFer focused on getting chicken wings and watching other shit until the main event come on. Nah pimpin. Yall know my rule. When I order the fight, I want to see the entire card. Iont give a fuck if Jim Gray is fighting Jim Lampley for the BJC (Best Jim Championship) belt. When I get a birthday card from CVS I don't get just the message on a piece of paper. I get the whole fucking card. So if I'm paying for PPV, same rules apply. I want the WHOLE FUCKING CARD! At $100, that shit is gonna stay on my TV until them MFers say "aight man...shit is over."

Posted by Franchize on 19 April 2015 - 11:43 AM

This fight was as advertised. Only thing that surprised me a little was that Lucas' hand speed was a little better than I thought. That jab was snapping in the early rounds at a fast rate. Some of the punches these dudes were throwing had me cringing. I had a headache after this fight. It fulfilled my bar room brawl fix for the season lol. Definitely a FOTY candidate. That being said, both fighters need to take some fights against some light punchers. They should not rematch each other any time soon. I know that'll disappoint fans but for the sake of their careers and honestly their lives, they need to take it easy...maybe even take some time off.

#618941 NBC@5:30PM(PT)/8:30PM(ET)-Garcia-Peterson/Quillin Lee SPOILERS

Posted by Franchize on 13 April 2015 - 03:58 PM

Lamont had a sound strategy and made it into a 2 part fight. Early on, he used his movement to wear down a fighter known for fading in the later rounds. 2nd half of the fight, he turned it up and was the one being the aggressor. However, I can see how people could score the fight for Danny. Peterson may have waited a round or 2 too long to implement the second part of his strategy. He CLEARLY won the 2nd half of the fight, and if you asked me who I'd rather be afterwards, I'd rather be Lamont for sure. That said, he gave a round or 2 away clowning around and while he showed ring generalship in the early rounds, he lost rounds with lack of offense. I have no issues with someone saying Lamont won, but to say he "clearly" won is ridiculous. Also, I haven't seen one person who gave Lamont the nod give credit to Danny for his solid work to the body from the onset of the fight. It's ok to prove your point but still give the other guy credit you know. This isn't an election.

#618296 Khan vs Algieri

Posted by The Original MrFactor on 29 March 2015 - 10:50 PM

Wasn't Porter world class. Khan ran out of reasons to fight Brook. Handwrighting is on the wall here. Brook is a serious threat to Khan stepping in against Mayweather. If not Khan, then I'd love to see Brook against Thurman who i think is getting vulnerable  by some of the damage he's taken lately.

Ronda Rousey vs Victor Ortiz -- WHO would win?

 

Serious question. Now Ronda is not allowed to use kicks and grapples. She is only allowed to use her boxing discipline.

 

Now WHO is you pick and why?

Just for clarification purposes, this isn't a serious question right?

#617990 Mayweather-Pacquiao: May 2, 2015-Preview and Poll! (Bar/Casino PPV Ticket...

Posted by ks1 on 21 March 2015 - 01:23 PM

 

But its not evidence, its not even circumstantial evidence. But lets sift through it quickly

 

1. Well there did spend the last how long saying they dont wanna do random blood and urine testing did they not? Wouldn't it be hypocritical to say we'll test for Marquez but not Floyd?

2. Am pretty certain Arum said that and he all agree he talks a lotta shit

3. Theres an interview just after the Morales fight confirming this, not that it was the reason, but he was psychologically affected. People on this board conveniently ignore it when I post it.

4. Theres two ways to look at this one, probably Roach just really wanted to get at Ariza, I mean the dude kicked him in the chest and it was pay back, albeit also throwing there own camp under the bus. On the other hand whats this dude then doing with Floyd "Am clean" Mayweather.

 

Finally this isn't about saying Pacs clean, the stuff I've been reading about the rampant use in BodyBuilding, NFL, Powerlifting, Olympic Weightlifting makes me think actually, Boxing is more corrupt than all those sports, so why wouldn't it happen there too.

 

Its harder to judge in boxing because they've been fairly old school with the training so you don't know whether its new stuff that makes the impact. But all we know is that athletes in the 1890s were the only ones clean

Re #3, I suspect people are ignoring it because it's not confirmation.  It's an excuse or rationalization for a loss.  Just because he used the same bs excuse/"reason" years later doesn't make it confirmation.  Funny how he says nothing about being psychologically affected by it when he wins.    Cmon, now, if Floyd said something like that people would laugh at him.  Rightfully so.

#617014 Soooo.... Canelo will have to move his date to 5/9...

Posted by Dolimite on 24 February 2015 - 01:02 PM

...as if those ugly PPV numbers last year haven't already done so....

No they didn't it only gave him motivation to think he is at the top. He should have 3 Ls but Trout and Lara shot themselves in the foot. No way anyone will get a decision over Canelo not named Mayweather who won by majority. That should tell you the BS that comes with this kid. Fuck him! If he were smart he would of tried to get on May 2nd undercard.

oscar has always had a bad habit of playing his cards way too soon. they tried to announce the cotto fight as if they were the A side....then they tried to hijack cinco de mayo weekend...fail. canelo is NOT the star they are trying to promote him as. if kirkland can force a pace on canelo...he may stop him/beat him. kirkland is a dog when he needs to be. he has plenty of time to get in shape...and he's working with the dude that helped marquez. should be interesting while it lasts. i'm rooting for kirkland.

The fact that he emerged from the Super Six Tournament victorious should eliminate all the (negative) talk about his level of competition.

#616442 Manny and Arum DUCKING Floyd

Posted by BrutUalBK on 04 February 2015 - 10:27 AM

I'm kinda with Sauce on this one, I suspect that the so called "Fight Of The Century" will end up being a one-sided asswhuppin/sparring session, I believe Mayweather will start to sharpshoot his right hand on Manny and he will make it look easy after 5 rounds.

 

I think it'll look easier than the SSM fight and most people will walk away disappointed, it won't be like the DLH fight or as obvious as the JMM fight but I think it will be a drubbing after 5 rounds.

#616300 HBO@9:45PM(ET)/6:45PM(PT) - Rios vs Alvarado 3 - SPOILERS

Posted by Franchize on 28 January 2015 - 04:43 PM

Rios did look good. Hopefully,Alvarado's team isn't a bunch of leeches and just out for the paycheck. That stuff in the corner at the end was telling. Someone on his team needs to look out for his best interest. Not sure if Mike is in the best shape mentally to do that. He needs a break and some professional help. Boxing will be there if/when he gets his life together. Don't want to see another Johnny Tapia situation.

The fact that they still wanted him to fight was disgusting. You could tell from the first round he wanted no parts of that ring. At least with Tapia, he looked like he wanted to be there even if he wasn't in the state to be there. Alvarado looked like he just wanted to get it over with. 

 

Only fight I care to see Rios in is against Ortiz. The buildup and animosity oughta be worth suffering through the suffering of watching such piss poor fundamentals lol

Mayweather-Cotto 2 for Middleweight lineage is the only fight I would be content with outside the Big one. First fight was good and entertaining. Cotto is the real deal folks.

#613540 PPV@9PM(ET/6PM(PT)) Pacquiao vs. Algieri-SPOILERS

Posted by mrchitown on 24 November 2014 - 04:46 PM

Caught the fight on YouTube before it got taken down luckily, I'm glad I didn't purchase the PPV. No one I knew who actually bought it enjoyed it.

I heard Lomanchenko was looking good and when I asked about Zou all I got was crickets lol

The knockdowns weren't even legit knockdowns,many were slips because it was puddles in that damn corner. A few of them were legit though, I forget which round it was but I think it was the 6th and Pacquiao hit Algieri with a left clean and the lights flickered real quick...the worse part of the fight had to be when Algieri's trainer was talking about cutting Algieri loose and he gets knocked down right when he said that crap lol

It was a mediocre fight though imo Pacquiao did look better then he has in recent fights. Part of me wants to attribute it to him being the catch weight King and the other part of me wants to think it was because he actually took thenfight serious and trained hard. Also think he looked marginally better defensively, but Algieri didn't do himself any favors by not throwing frequently..the post fight was corny, the commercial wasn't that funny Manny give it a rest lol. Algieri's exuded confidence in the lead up to the fight, seems like when he got hit all that confidence left

HBO was pathetic as usual, it was blocked punches beimg oohed and ahh'ed by Lampley and Kelerman and once again Roy had to snap them back to reality

Posted by Cshel86 on 23 April 2015 - 02:17 PM

My sons will be with their mom and my ex (the stripper) will be watching the fight with me. It just so happens she called me out the blueand asked if she could stay with me while she was visiting L.A. I told her sure. Now hopefully she doesn't wear anything that causes me to miss the main event. Plus she is cooking! Floyd won't be the only one going 12 rounds.

Sounds like you're prepping to get your ass kicked....but I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't wanna see how your pending shitstorm plays out! 

 

:lol:

 

So do me a favor....just live through next weekend so I can hear all about this!

#619293 Will Manny Retire??

Posted by Dolimite on 22 April 2015 - 11:22 AM

Manny will need to keep fighting or change his spending habits. He has a lot of debts (IRS & others). He's still spending so much money on his own, his wife's spending, plus his so called inner/outer circle that he supports. Not to mention, the money he has to give to Arum, Koncz and Roach. He got too many hands in his pockets. He's a generous guy, but not the most fiscally smart. Folks are taking advantage of his generosity and gullibility.

You forgot Golden Boy, I think he is still paying them. His wife has gone ballistic in L.A. He just bought a new mansion for 12 million, he has to furnish it. He has a 20 person entourage as of now, he plans on flying more people in from the PI. He has to pay all the people you mentioned. I am worried this guy is going reckless with his money. He hasn't even gotten his purse yet. The IRS are taking their money off top, maybe he can side step the BIR who knows. I hope he has a secret account, because this dude is spending like crazy. He is making it rain so much in Kali that the drought maybe over.

Assuming the judges and the ref are with the "home" fighter, but still Pacman claims he has "God" on his side. So its still an even hand.

 

Alright, bad joke.

lol but funny as fuck.

 

I don't know. I would have rather see Weeks or Byrd for this particular fight but I feel the opposite about Kenny Bayless. If anyone is going to be grappling and physically imposing, it'll be Floyd. I've never seen Manny try to fight on the inside so Bayless' occasional tendency to break fighters up too quick to me doesn't hurt Manny at all. I'm more worried about the judges.
