Little petal can’t finish one fight how in the worlds can you sign him up for anotherPosted May 13, 2013 8:15 am
Unfortunately chelo is a soft little girl.Posted May 13, 2013 8:14 am
So lets get this straight, Gonzalez the underdog goes to Rickys home town, kicks Rickys ass for 8 rounds, hurts and Rocks Ricky but because he hurts his Wrist which we now know was hurt prior to the fight and cannot finish the fight.. Ricky is now a Super Star and Gonzalez is a coward??? Lets see Ricky go to Puerto Rico and Avenge that embarrassing performance.. all Judges had Gonzalez winning until he hurt his hand.. If I were Ricky I’d rematch Gonzalez to prove I’m better instead of making excuses and running away from Gonzalez as fast as he can….Posted May 13, 2013 6:55 am
as for Gonzalez, if your not prepared to go the full 12 rounds then your never going to be champion of the world its not just about skill, Ricky is so tough the other guy injured himself hitting him and got weakened beyond repair, Ricky came out in the 8th after his toughest round and while Gonzalez faded like a flower petal Ricky STEPPED IT UP A GEAR, that’s what separates the Champions from the contenders folks.Posted May 13, 2013 4:18 am
Ricky said it himself, he was expecting a come forward fighter and got the complete opposite of that, would be hard to adjust but I guess thats what wold class fighters do,they can be not at their best but still grind out the result, a lesser man would have been KO’d in the 7th.Posted May 13, 2013 4:11 am
It`s not really complaining about the result, he is just explaining he ended up fighting a different style to what he was expecting.
He was shocked the guy was so slick.
He was also shocked the guy was such a Victor Ortiz.Posted May 13, 2013 3:08 am
I found out that Gonzalez wrist was damage in training and he decided to fight. Come on RICKY a rematch.Posted May 13, 2013 1:54 am
I am from Puerto Rico and I know for a fact that English people are the biggest fan of boxing and educated. I saw the fight and the announcers where right on, Ricky was losing the fight. Please! Ricky I saw a lot of videos of Gonzalez. Both Ricky and Jose were not prepared they took this fight this fight as a joke.Posted May 12, 2013 10:41 pm
seriously, you consider yourself a journalist seriously? write an unbiased and interesting article and perhaps you may be taken seriously you foolish man. not getting tape of a fighter, not unheard of many times before and not used as an excuse from what i can tell. burns showed his class as the guy threw all he had at him, burns soaked it up and beat him into submission mentally and physically. please feel free to write another article when you’re prejudice anti british fighter attitude wears off.Posted May 12, 2013 10:34 pm
Burns should shut the hell up , give credit to his opponent , learn from the experience & do better next time.Posted May 12, 2013 8:07 pm
Rickys biggest problem in this fight IMO was the big lay off – he was too eagerand frustrated and played into Gonzalez gameplan for the eraly rounds, but when he realised he was behind, he showed that thing that champs have, of putting it all on the line – from the 6th onwards, he started coming right in to Gonzalez, risk be damned, and as we seen in that titanic 7th, Gonazelz couldn’t stay with it.
Sure, Ricky didn’t put on a great performamncetchnically and was very rusty, but I think he showed stuff that anyone at 135 would be wary of; tremendous chin, iron stamina, and a will to win that puts him right up there.
In defence of Ricky, I think the freakish long reach of Gonazlez really upset his timing, range and rythym, but he will have learned tons from this fight.
Rickster will clean out 135 IMO, even if Broner comes back down (which I very mcuh doubt). Watch Burns next fight in September, I bet he is far mor accurate and dominant.Posted May 12, 2013 7:23 pm
I watched the fight twice, look at Burns after the fight, he looked as fresh as a Daisy, alert, not marked up and was never hurt in this fight. The AfroRican had a huge reach advantage and was slick, but he clearly lacked power against IronChinned Burns.
He blew out his load in the 7th and after that he was gone, mentally and physically.
Burns biggest issue was closing the distance and not jabbing to get closer to unload, its amazing how many boxers get so far without a strong jab.Posted May 12, 2013 6:58 pm
