Q-you are absolutely right about PAC -to me too Marquez for the first time in his carrier looked old and very slow and he was on a verge of being stopped by PAC finally but got lucke with a perfect punch and off course his big heart saved him too because anyone else in his shoe would have just quit being in a corner like was was at the 6′th round…
And yes now most think PAC is done and those who are against imiddiate 5th fight with marquez are claiming PAC “needs first an easier fight before he takes on Marquez” but they are all ok for PAC fighting a boxer who can punch and take punches more then anyone in a sport like rios..lol they all hope this way if PAC losses will take him out of the picture for a possible Marquez 5th fight BUT they are wrong PAC has a lion heart and he will be back .

Cotto was happy to grant Cheato a rematch… He was anxious to batter Cheato’s eyes shut and blast him TFO.. Cotto was peeved for a while that the referee stopped it with Cheato’s right eye slammend tightly shut, making him an even easier target… MC wanted to finish the job Mosley and Pacquiao started on Cheato — and that was to crush The Cheat utterly and completely — and once and for all time wipe him from the face of the Earth.

Anyway, don’t go crazy with this feeding Manny to people thing, jaja. After Manny stops a guy in Rios who seems like an unstoppable maniac…. he can then fight Lucas… I like to see monsters battle. Manny has better foot movement than Lucas, and a quick trigger…. Lucas seems to hit harder, but Manny is more explosive, and can bust him up and f him up nicely barring being stopped.

Texhook, Tark, among others and myself, are substituting the words “KO” or “Knockout” for TKO. At least I have been. On occasion. But I certainly know the difference between a KO and a TKO. Still, they are both knockouts.

Q-here you are being honest at last..lol”I don’t think Manny should be discarding so thoroughly… he’s always struggled with JMM… he was actually stiffening JMM’s legs like never before in this bout before showing that he could be stopped and hard. Barring that, JMM was looking like he wouldn’t last much longer, and I like the comeback stories. The hype and trash talk I hate, but now.. I can say, I’m rooting for Manny to come back and show people that, he may be older now, but JMM is a tremendous fighter, and he still can break the face of a guy who’s coming at him. I want to see Manny rip Rios to shreds and hurt him like you never thought he could be hurt.. out on his feet hurt. I actually can’t wait, jaja… we will see who’s being fed to whom.”

And Te tumbas is a bias noob for claiming ODH deserved a draw in that bout with FMJ…. that fight wasn’t even close, at all. I had it 9-3… now tell me which rounds you gave to Oscar and for what? It was an official SD.. attempted robbery, but they got it right… and the favorite, the most popular at the moment, the champion in the higher division, still lost. One of FMJ’s dullest bouts ever along with the Baldomir fight.

You praise in order to put down other fighters and races… “face-to-face NObody has ever got over on Me. i’m not saying that i’m undefeated. i’m only saying that NObody has ever requested a rematch.” WTF? Is this dude Le Dumbo smoking some good mota? Ofcourse nobody “requested a rematch” Why would they if they beat your ass? This guy is so delusional now hes a “boxer”… Guzzling Antonia Margarita’s jizz has really got you acting like a junkie… And speaking of “por que yo soy de los hombres. que cuando pierdo no llorohhh” I can remember plenty of your boy quiting like Victor “Im getting hit to much” Ortiz, Eric Morales waiving “no mas punyos” to the ref on the seat of his ass looking up at Pacman, or Rafael Marquez “My pride doesnt hurt its my shoulder” Marquez at the hands of a no skilled Juanma. Btw you always talked that sht that “Cotto needed to rematch Margarito for his legacy” check… Now did Margarito step back in the ring Vs. Mosley after Mosley “pushed his sh-t in”? Ohh my bad Margarita doesnt have a legacy… Did Angulo revenge Kirkland after he got mopped in Mexico in front of his people? Atleast Juanma put up and fight and got back in thier with Salido…

I am surprised that so many do not know the difference between a KO and a TKO A knockout is when a fighter can’t get up at the count at 10,or simply out cold.

Posted May 22, 2013 3:33 pm

Adrian, here’s an excerpt from the May 19 Showtime article that was published on ESB: “Moments later, after the third knockdown courtesy of a left hook, referee Steve Smoger waved off the fight at 2:14 of round three.” A Doc did not stop the fight and a left hook did not put Peterson down. Watch the replays my friend.

Posted May 22, 2013 2:56 pm 


Hidalgo

“Hildago> Peterson was saved by a doctor not to be ko’d permanently if you know what I mean …si that’s a tko but not because of the injury but because of the beating he was getting!” Adrian, I saw Ref Smoger stop the fight. Not a doctor. Did I miss something?

Posted May 22, 2013 2:50 pm 


Hidalgo

Q, yes it was an “official” TKO, but like I keep saying, when you get a chance to watch the HBO replays, watch the slo-mo’s, if they show them, very carefully. There was no second knockdown in the third round. Therefore, it shouldn’t have been a TKO. Momentum and off-balance are what put Peterson down–not a Matthysse punch.

Q

JoeKidd: Ask Cotto and Guerrero if they were being tapped.. last I checked they both find themselves out on their feet at points of the bout looking like they were ready to be stopped. And you can’t run and land 60+ % of your punches… it’s only ever running if you’re not landing. I prefer FMJ fights to 99% of any other.. because… he’s so accurate… I’m spoiled, and can’t stand seeing people miss punches while *GASP* TAKING PUNCHES, they seem sloppy to me now, jajaja…. Floyd’s spoiled me with his legendary greatness.

Posted May 22, 2013 2:03 pm 


Q

MJames: Barring a KD, why couldn’t Khan outbox Lucas who has been outboxed? The thing is his power, and Khan only needs to get tapped apparently. Diaz against Khan looked to be about the power puncher that Lucas looked against Peterson. Lucas did do some SERIOUS rabbit punching.. and blatant.

Posted May 22, 2013 2:00 pm 


Q

Peterson wasn’t KO’d, it’s an official TKO. Lucas probably has more power than Manny, but much less speed. Prime for prime, I would favor Manny, but he’s slowed down a bit, and Lucas can really really punch. And If Judah Vs. Lucas was a robbery, then any close fight ever was a robbery, because that bout was CLOSE. I think I thought Lucas won by a round. he got out boxed the first half of the fight, but then he got the KD swing, and I think won the rest of the rounds. It was very close.

“I guess Peterson wasn’t KO’d either” He wasn’t, Tark. Like I said earlier, watch replays of the fight. Peterson wasn’t KOd. Matthysse didn’t connect with any punches causing the second knockdown and resulting stoppage of the fight. Watch the replays.

Posted May 22, 2013 10:53 am 


Adrian

Yep the difference between tko and ko is that when the fight ends by a doctor from cuts or lets say a boxer himself cant continue because of thr injury like Brocken hand or something it count as a tko not ko ,that’s the only difference !

Posted May 22, 2013 10:48 am 


TARK

I guess Peterson wasn’t KO’d either… Maybe the referee should have let him get up and take a few more because he was in better shape than Tommy.

Posted May 22, 2013 10:43 am 


TARK

…… “TARK you need to learn the difference between TKO and KO Tommy Hearns lost by TKO 3 times in his 20′s.”

Leonard was murdering Tommy with about 50 straight punches without a reply. Tommy’s head was twitching after the fight like he had Tourettte’s Syndrome. The referee saved his life. Tommy was flattened out like a pancake vs Hagler and Barkley. That ends a fight by KO, just in case you didn’t know this. The referee doesn’t generally finish the count if he can see you’re a helpless doggie.

A TKO is a KO. They all count as KO losses against him — whether he got hit with a perfect shot or somebody beat his skinny butt into the floorboards. The term “knocked out” means knocked out of the fight, NOT knocked unconscious.

It is a great disappointment that m and p never fought. Who knows who would have won. I could imagine both scenarios. But what I am sure abt is that m has been pampered with his opponents. He was definitely unwilling to fight p when he was at his peak. P is the best and most exciting fighter of his generation. Most objective fans know this. He still has much to offer and hopefully shows the world again in China what the pacman is capable of. He is also a sporting loser and is never too big to give props to those who beat him. He is a boxing role model. I am lucky to have seen all his fights.

El Caviteno

May I comment on Pacquiao Mayweather instead? Had the fight materialized, Pacquiao would have been KO by Mayweather – no doubt about that. But the fight didn’t happen – and will never happen – BECAUSE MAYWEATHER IS SO AFRAID OF PACQUIAO – so much so that his dad and uncle concocted the idea that Pacquiao is on drugs. Mayweather is never a risk taker – wants to protect his “0″ record thinking that that will make him the greatest boxer ever – which will NEVER be of course because he AVOIDED all the better ones.

Tom

Yes, DLH and Cotto both came in at 154 and Floyd at 151 for Cotto and 150 for DLH. Catchweight applies to both combatants. The fact Floyd did not come in at the divisions limit of 154, which is stipulated in the rules of the organizations of those straps when boxers fight for champtionships, generally makes it a catchweight fight. One can only surmise and speculate what the outcome would have been were weights the same across the board. ( level playing field)Hatton fought once at 147 without much success but then fought Floyd at 145 to Floyd’s 147. In essence, this was also a catchweight fight.

Ed where is this defense that Manny possess that you talk about. Pacquaio fights fire with fire, no D just outslug his foe. The in and out and feints that’s not defense that’s to set up the attack. JMM brought more fire-power and Manny ended on his face. Marques knew how to time him in the last fight. Top Rank doesn’t want anything to do with GBP& Al Haymon. Top Rank has no one at 140, 147, 154, 160lbs. You wonder why the old geezer Arum is pissed at Showtime. GBP stable is stacked up to the rafters in talent.

Not entirely in defense of Pacquiao but the hate here is ridiculous. I admit from dela hoya or maybe the diaz fight up the next fights were questionable wins (save fights with hatton, who was defeated at his optimal weight, “maybe” cotto, and clottey) but looking at his resume before that it will certainly get a nod. how many wins a championship fighting after a few weeks notice? after fighting barrera he fought marquez. how many fighters fight two legends in a row? not disrespecting my other fave fighter marquez, but we all know he fought john when he was offered for a rematch. so after a fight he fought a third legend morales, though he lost, but the rest is history. not the perfect boxer with the perfect resume but what he brought to the boxing world, the excitement, drama, intrigue, is unquestionable.

ED, you’re totally mistake re Floyd fighting any catchweights vs the men you stated. He was told he’d have to pay a hefty chunk for every pound he came in above the contracted weight vs DINAMITA and opted to come in at Welterweight limit and pay the fine.

Vs ODLH & COTTO, both men came in at 154lbs, which was advantageous to them and floyd came in a lot south of the 154lb limit… Floyd can barely get to 151/2 lbs… he is a Welterweight and not a Jnr middleweight….

Oh,yes…. anyone know hwat has happened to JOSHUA CLOTTEY???? He seems to have vanished after the PACQUIAO bout, where he said he could no longer make Welterweight.

Is Clottey still active in boxing????

Ed

Oh, I recall Floyd too fighting DLH at catchweight and JMM and Cotto. Cotto didn’t go down but Floyd never fought at 154, same deal. Had he, the outcome cannot be assumed. Worse in Floyds favor is he fought tiny tim Marquez. While they both fought catchweights, Pacs fights have been more compelling and challenging. His opponents have had better standing than Floyd’s recent opponents. Or is Guerrero better than Clottey (fought at his prime), Mosely, Cotto, JMM??? To Pac credit, least he fought JMM closer to his weight than Floyd did, who couldnt and wouldn’t go down no matter what. So much for an all time great.

This is the most intriguing bout that can be made. If Matthysse smashes Pacman to bits, then he can quite conceivably claim to be one of the elite.

This is a bout I would like to see: Pacquiao va Matthysse! Failing this Oscar De La Hoya should be making Matthysse vs Khan as Khan said he would school Matthysse, I think it’s only right for Matthysse to be given the chance to let him eat his words!

Matthysse has the audacity to even think he can do battle with arguably the best fighter of all time. Manny Pacquiao would severely punish and hurt this guy. Let’s not get carried away with this win over Peterson. Lucas better realize that he would be fighting a monster with lethal power in both hands. Manny is too fast and much too powerful for Matthysse. Someone needs to slap Matthysse for even thinking he could step into a ring with the legend that is Manny Pacquiao. Peterson has no power whatsoever. Manny would stretch out this guy in the same fashion as Hatton, Cotto, Diaz, Morales, Barrera and would hurt Matthysse in the way Pacquiao hurt Mrgarito. Manny brutalizes people. They don’t ever come back. Someone please make this fight so Manny can dispose of this guy. Just watch what Manny does to Rios, and then ask Matthyse if he wants to fight Manny. Guarantee you he’ll say no way. Manny Pacquiao is getting ready to start another reign of terror.

Can you name a single time he faced a fellow belt holder in any of the so-called 8 divisions?
Are you not aware they waited until Marquez was 38 y for a rematch?
Are you not aware that he has been the king of catch-weight?
are you not aware that all the fighters he fought were coming from losses, and guess the only exceptions to that pathetic rule: Marquez and Bradley!
What does that tell you?
Are you not aware that he avoide all along young undefeated fighters, and when he faced a known one, he lost?

Matthyse can definitely punch, take a punch, can fight all noght and he should be considered the top dog in the division, not counting Marquez, who now is really at 147, but saying he’s the next Pacquiao by Schaefer was probably more in the sense of being an exciting fighter. His style is very different and he doesn’t really have the foot and hand speed of Manny. But he has definitely put himself in the mix and this is professional boxing, so why not try to land the big one? It worked for Robert Guerrero, and he had a lot less to bring to the table.

Hmmmm, I thought the only supposed dangerous guy Manny faced that Mayweather didn’t fight was Margarito. Margarito was done one or two fights later. Clottey couldn’t be considered dangerous, he didn’t even fight back when he fought Pacquiao… But really what fans refuse to acknowledge is the fact that Arum was always a major stumbling block for a lot of fighters ever getting the chance to fight Mayweather…

Supreme: I don’t usually come on here to debate just comment, I’m not a fan of any boxer I’m a fan of boxing, manny took on alot of dangerous guys in ww that’s all im saying, plenty of dangerous guys matthyse could face, besides I think manny should retire soon, and Floyd needs to start fighting dangerous guys

Mayweather-Pacquiao would have been a modern day epic event, with II and III a given. Only politics and ego’s got in the way. Mayweather is a coward. Amazing boxer no doubt, but….?

F!cking Filipino liar!
Which division did Manny Chemical Pacquio, the biggest Fraud in boxing history, cleaned?
Manny Chemical Pacquiao never fought a fellow belt holder in any of the division he fraudulently went through.

But he paid a heavy price when his big head was planted face first into the canvas by the legendary Marquez!

Interesting how many have been vocal calling out fighters they want to fight and should be commended. Only one who does not call out anyone is Floyd. At least Pac says “anyone.” He’s even mentioned Floyds name. Interesting also that JMM or every other Fat Head doesn’t call out lucas if he was so easy to fight.

Bradley KOing Pac? Please, Bradley couldn’t KO my aunt May.

JMM wants none of Lucas at this point in his career. Last thing he needs is a beating and left in a bloody mess.

Posted May 20, 2013 8:55 pm 


Ed

Matthysse looked very impressive doing what he does but keep it in perspective, while manny is a banger,he also has boxing skills. Pac is the type of fighter that is constantly moving on his feet, has lateral movements and can under rated defense. Besides, styles makes fights. What worked for lucas on saturday does not mean would work for him any other time. Granted, it would be a hell of a fight but since lucas has never fought at WW it is not known how well he would do 7lbs heavier. Even JMM fought Pac in Dec. at 143! If the contract calls for division limit of 147 it will be very different for Lucas, not a given that he will win much less KO a banger that has been in the WW division for years. So, that said, some one been drinking too much kool aid to say Matthysse would KO Pac in 2?? In what year? Remember, we all thought Trinidad would KO Hopkins, but manny does not just stay in front of you like Trinidad, Trinidad did not dart in and out like Pac. Nonetheless, I would love to see it. Certainly it would be a better fight than watching Floyd who picks fighters He KNOWS he can beat. Unlike Floyds fights, Saturdays fight was not predictable.

Fellas, enough with PAC & Mayweather. Mathysse needs to battle Garcia first. A rematch with Alexander is definitely an option too.

Pacquiao

Fightters know, and Mayweather knew that Pacquiao was very, very risky, so started accusing Pacquiao of taking PEDS, that will do it, he knew that would annoy Pacquiao, Mayweather put the spanner in the works, he was scared of Pacquiao.

Interesting that he didn’t say he’d like to fight Mayweather…

Posted May 20, 2013 8:24 pm 


Pacquiao

Mayweather just retires, or dodges fights, he dodged, retired Pacquiao after he knocked out Hatton, hoping the Pacquiao problem would go away.

Posted May 20, 2013 8:24 pm 


Mayweather

I will fight Devon Alexander next, dodge, if you buy that PPV, he avoids fighters, simple as that.

Posted May 20, 2013 8:21 pm

Valero was in the mold of Aaron Pryor. Had he lived boxing would be different right now….mathysse is getting ahead of himself. Very bad sign

Posted May 20, 2013 8:18 pm

Mathysse looked good but remember every fighter you fight, you discover a new level to accomplish. Peterson, Judah, Alexander are not Pacquiao.

But they are all lucky that Edwin Valero was so stupid, because that killer would destroy all of them, Pacquiao, Marquez, Khan, Matthysse, Broner, Rios, etc
no joke

OK, Lucas, make up your mind. Garcia, Mayweather, Canelo, or Pacquiao? Khan?

Posted May 20, 2013 8:10 pm 


te tumbo

bottomline, Punkuiao* priced himself out of a 5th matchup v. Marquez and will price himself out of any other matchup that carries too much risk. that’s been Punkuiao’s* M.O. all along. Matthysse better lose to Garcia BADly if he ever wants a shot at cornering Punkuiao* in a showdown. Or he can wait for Eight (8) F’n Years, which is the mission that Marquez dedicated himself to in order to finally corner and KTFO of Punkuiao* who thought he was safe at 147lbs from Marquez’s challenges. he was WRONG.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:58 pm 


te tumbo

“he was doing very well . . .” Pacquiao* was only ahead by a single round going into the 6th and if Marquez had ONLY dropped Pacquiao* in that round the fight would’ve been even going into the 7th. “he got caught . . .” by Marquez’s right-hand several times before the 6th, including the 3rd and 4th round during which Marquez was continuing to target Pacquiao* for the KO right. that was Marquez’s (and Pacquiao’s*) publicly declared fight-plan all along. he executed. Pacquiao* never could. the rivalry is OVER. Marquez is Greater. Viva Marquez and F’k Punkuiao*.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:53 pm 


Happyboy

Pacquiao – every boxer that has taken the test got the fight with Mayweather but Pac was scared of needles unti Marquez punched him senseless now his demanding the same tests from Rios. Pac and his promoter played a big part in the fight not happening.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:53 pm 


te tumbo

Btw, Matthysse’s profile of young, prime, and dangerous effectively eliminates him from consideration by Team Punkuiao*. Matthysse is preCisely the type of fighter Punkuiao* has been avoiding all along. even his convincing loss to Morales and DEVASTATING loss to Marquez was the result of underestimating these opponents NOT a willingness to risk defeat. that’s never been a part of Pacquiao’s* MISmatchmaking profile, which by definition seeks faded, ringworn opponents he can compromise further with a slew of conditions that tilt the playing-field even further in Punkuiao’s* direction. Face It, boys: i’ve been right all along and it’s high-time that many of you transition from clueless fanboys to wiser fight-fans who won’t be fooled again and Again, and AGAIN.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:49 pm 


Pacquiao

Don’t underestimate Manny Pacquiao, he fought everyone, didn’t dodge, he went for it against Marquez, he was doing very well, he got caught, that’s Boxing, true Boxer, one for the ages.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:44 pm 


te tumbo

“If anyone is going to knock Pacquiao out cold again it’s going to be one of Arum’s Top Rank fighters like Brandon Rios, Tim Bradley, Mike Alvarado or Juan Manuel Marquez”. you can scratch Marquez from that line-up. Punkuiao* priced himself out of a 5th matchup by insisting on purse parity and being able to choose the location as IF it was Marquez who was the one planted face-first and butts-up into the canvas last December 8. Bradley won’t ever face Punkuiao* again either for the same reason as IF it was Bradley that was robbed of a victory. face it, Pacquiao* doesn’t Reeeeally want to fight anyone based on risk or credibility. only based on how much he can rob them of their fair share of the purse, win Or lose. Good Riddance to Punkuiao*. the single most corrupting influence on Boxing in the past 10 years.

The right to fight Khan

Matthysse should fight Prescott, see if he can knock him out, then he deserves to fight Khan.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:33 pm

Hope one day he does get a big fight hes been cheated twice but first he has beat atlease 2 more top 140 fighters. And please stop mentioning Khan that guy is just a hyped job

Matthysse will not be fighting any Top Rank fighters unless it is because he is a mandatory.

Ray – Matthysseee wants Mexican Culito to kick like Rios, Abner Mares and Alvarado but because those guys are ChickenChihuahuas and there aren’t really any Mexicans making any noise he’ll have to fight Paquiao, Rios or Cinnabum who likes to fight tiny guys…

Posted May 20, 2013 7:14 pm 


Prof Konje

I disagree with the writer regarding Arum not putting Pacquaio in with Matthysse. Arum will feed Pacquaio to the wolves if the price is right. Arum is carefully watching Pacquaio to see how much more he could milk out of his cash cow before he dumps him. If Pacquaio should beat Rios, and if enough money is on the table, then look for Arum to sacrifice Pacquaio.

Matthysse has been under the radar for a long time. Now that the world has seen what he can do, he’s using this opportunity to make the best, most lucrative fights possible. I would stick my neck out to say that if Matthysse could find dance partners he would be willing to fight every several months and clean out the 140 pound division.

Posted May 20, 2013 7:10 pm 


PEEJ

They can scream Mayweather all they want. Floyd would toy with Pac. Any version. But he has not looked good since the Margacheato fight. He should of gotten the nod against Baradley by a couple of rounds but him only fighting 30 seconds of the rounds costed him. Once again Pac has looked lousy. Matthysse would knock him out

Posted May 20, 2013 7:00 pm 


third world

i love how fickle boxing fans are.manny was robbed against bighead bradley.he was k.o. by a great fighter in jmm. after he annihilates rios,everyone will be screaming for mayweather again.give me a break.manny just needs to kick everyone of his hangers on and that wife to the curb,and listen to his mama.forget being a politician and get back to doing what he does best.pac-matthysse would be a pick ‘em fight.lamont peterson wasn’t sugar ray leonard.everyone has their kryptonite.

Matthysse is dangerous ….. but seems quite basic in boxing ability. Pacqaiuo could outbox him.

Also can’t happen because Top Rank does not do business with Golden Boy

With the way Pac looked and the way Matthysse looks, I’ll take Matthysse by KO

Fight Aficionado

Matthysse is calling out all the big names. I’ve seen a lot of guys comparing him to Pac after Schaeffer’s statements over the weekend. He’s more like Tszyu: big power, great timing, underrated boxing skills. That said, IMO he’s rushing a bit. Fight Garcia, Khan and anyone else at 140 who has the balls to step up.

Posted May 20, 2013 6:14 pm

not going to happen. Manny had a great run and hopefully will wrap things up soon. great that he is boxing next in China. The USA take too much of the boxers purse through taxes.

Matthysse DID NOT specificly say he wanted Pacquioa. He did however state and has repeatedly called out Danny Garcia.
