Mitchell seems to be a great guy, but he is pretty green to be fighting at his present level. I wish him well, but I think he is being brought up way too fast. I hope I’m wrong.

Thank you brother Ernie. It has been as pleasurable for me to relay this Vulture information to the good people of ESB as I’m sure it has for each and everyone of you to feast your eyes upon all these splendiferous vulture facts.

A most interesting plethora of exciting facts that are well organized in a single package for entertainment and expanding one’s knowledge in the wonderful world of vultures.
Truly amazing to say the least…

All 20 of Gonzo’s Super Splendiferous Vulture Facts of the Day.

Sink your talons and your beaks into each one of these juicy morsels folks

Vulture Fact Overload!!!!

There are 23 vulture species in the world, and at least one type of vulture is found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica. These are relatively adaptable birds found in a range of habitats, including suburban regions, but even so, 14 species are considered either threatened or endangered.

Vulture species are divided into New World and Old World groups depending on their ranges. There are more vulture species in the Old World, and they are not closely related to New World vultures but are often considered together because they fill a similar ecological niche. New World vultures may be more closely related to storks than to other raptors.

Unlike many raptors, vultures are relatively social and often feed, fly or roost in large flocks. A group of vultures is called a committee, venue or volt. In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle, and when the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake.

Vultures are carnivorous and eat carrion almost exclusively. They prefer fresh meat but are able to consume carcasses that may have rotted so much as to be dangerous for other animals. This gives vultures a unique and important ecological niche because they help prevent the spread of diseases from old, rotting corpses.

Vultures have excellent senses of sight and smell to help them locate food, and they can find a dead animal from a mile or more away. Because of this, vultures often have large territories and will spend a lot of time soaring to locate their next meal.

It is a myth that vultures will circle dying animals waiting to feed. These birds are powerful fliers and will soar on thermals while they look for food, but when they locate a carcass, they will approach it quickly to begin feeding before other predators find it.

Vultures have bare heads and often bare necks so that when they feed on rotting carcasses, bacteria and other parasites cannot burrow into their feathers to cause infections. This allows the birds to stay healthier while feeding on material that would easily infect other animals.

Vultures have relatively weak legs and feet with blunt talons, though they do have powerful bills. If a carcass is too stiff for them to rip open, they will wait for another predator to open the flesh before they feed, which is why vultures are often seen in the company of other carrion-eating animals.

A vulture’s stomach acid is significantly stronger and more corrosive than that of other animals or birds. This allows these scavengers to feed on rotting carcasses that may be infected with dangerous bacteria, because their stomach acid will kill that bacteria so it does not threaten the vulture.

While vultures eat mostly dead animals, they are capable of attacking and will often prey on extremely sick, wounded or infirm prey, especially if food has been scarce and there are no carcasses nearby.

It is a myth that vultures will prey on healthy livestock, but they are still regularly persecuted by farmers and ranchers who believe the birds to be a threat to their animals.

Because vultures have weak feet and legs, they do not carry prey back to their chicks. Instead, they will gorge at a carcass and regurgitate food from their crop to feed their young.

Vultures urinate on their legs and feet to help cool off on hot days, and their urine also helps kill any bacteria or parasites they’ve picked up from walking through carcasses to help keep the birds healthier.

The Andean condor, found in South America, has the largest wingspan of any vulture in the world, with a spread of 10-11 feet when the bird extends its wings.

The crow-sized hooded vulture is the smallest of these birds with a wingspan of only five feet. It is found sub-Saharan Africa.

When threatened, vultures vomit to lighten their body weight so they can escape more easily into flight. Vomiting also serves as a defense mechanism to deter predators that may be threatening the birds.

New World vultures lack a syrinx and are nearly silent. They do not have songs, and their typical vocalizations are limited to grunts, hisses and similar sounds.

Vultures face many threats that are endangering their populations. Poisoning is the biggest threat to vultures, primarily from toxins or lead in the carcasses they eat. Other hazards include car collisions as they feed on road kill and electrocution from collisions with power lines.

Scientists have begun to study vultures’ unique senses and abilities and are considering using the birds to help find bodies from crimes. Studying how a vulture finds a body and how quickly it can consume the body can be useful for forensic analysis.

Vultures enjoy their own unique holiday, International Vulture Awareness Day, which is celebrated on the first Saturday of each September. The holiday is a way to raise awareness about these unique birds, and hundreds of zoos, aviaries, nature preserves and bird refuges worldwide participate each year with fun and informational activities about vultures.

Do not fear brother Ernie and brother Mongrel, Gonzo takes his role as an ambassador for spreading vulture awareness very seriously indeed and he will continue to endeavor to do so with great vigour and gusto. To be perfectly frank with you both though Gonzo is still more than a little concerned and perturbed with the spate of beaver attacks in Belarus at the moment, and more to the point, the apathy and inaction of the Belarusian government in doing something nip it in the bud.

TJ, Adrian and Mongrel:

Thank you for your understanding, support and/or apologies. You guys seem like Brits, except for Adrian, but still seem to be pretty cool. I really don’t like talking about politics or religion with strangers either — especially on a boxing forum like ESB. In fact, I way always taught that it’s rude to talk about religion or politics with almost everybody — except for a few close family or friends who you already know share similar beliefs.

This is why I got into it with that scumbag “Duran” the other right. And I suspect this cyber tough-guy calling himself “Gold King” is the same POS known as Duran.

(Believe it or not, not ALL former U.S. military people and gun owners are registered Tea-Party Republicans and NRA members.)

I’m NOT scared of you b*tch. You’re the one who’s terrified and that’s why you’re using a FAKE handle/name. What’s your REAL handle, punk??? Duran, SREDMOND or Q???

I don’t need weapons to destroy you, boy. (But I never home without them — call it life insurance). I’m bigger and stronger than Mike Tyson was in his prime and I’m a much better wrestler than he was. Throw in some boxing and MMA experience and you’ll be in for the dog fight of your life. I got KO power in both hands and have boxed enough to train myself to be left handed. My best shots are my jab and left hook. Although I can still easily KO you with my straight R or R hook.

What’s your REAL handle/name, you little b*tch???

Broner didn’t do enough to win. it’s a Boxing match and Broner got outboxed all night…………He did however look stronger thme Paulie and threw the stronger punches when he threw them but that was far and in-between getting hit by jabs. I’m tired of judges giving a round to someone because he looks strong! this is a boxing match and Broner got out boxed all night long. these types of calls are ruinning boxing. The judge that gave the score 117-11 should be run out of town and never judge again.
Banks could have easily won his bout agaist Mitchel but he stopped boxing after he almost had Mitchel out. where did Banks go on vacation!! he gave the fight away and he did this to go train Klitchko to fight Mitchel. Everyone knows he couldn’t fight Klitchko, he’s training him. so take an easy loss and have Mitchel fight Klitchko and get a big pay day for training Klitchko when he destroys Mitchel. Easy Ko for Klitchko, Mtchel has no chin………

If Broner is smart, he’ll go back down to 135lbs. However there are two significant problems with doing that:

1) Dropping the weight and keeping his weight down.
2) Gamboa – Who is NO JOKE and is a better all-around fighter, technically speaking.

Tj ” His Philly shell defence is no where near as good as Floyd’s as he uses it wrong…. There is no upper body movement or dipping at the kness, which leaves him a sucker for a right/ right hook all night long….” I agree 100% and I believe Matthyse & Marquez would smash Broner to pieces. I think his best bet is go back to 135lbs and fight Burns while he polishes his skills otherwise his gonna be another hype job who doesn’t live up to expectations and has a big mouth.

Posted June 24, 2013 2:38 am 


TJ

BRONER should have been deducted points for a punt to the groin and another for an elbow smash just before the bell….

BRONER won the contest chiefly because Paulie cannot punch a lick!

I’ve always throught he is susceptible to a man with good boxing skills armed with lateral movvement who carries a decent dig….

His Philly shell defence is no where near as good as Floyd’s as he uses it wrong…. There is no upper body movement or dipping at the kness, which leaves him a sucker for a right/ right hook all night long….

The bout I would like to see is Broner vs someone like Marquez at Welterweight or if he drops down vs Lucas Matthysse…. both these guys can exercise patience when they need to and carry enough power to test out Broner’s whiskers…..

The perfect bout would be Broner vs Saul Canelo Alvarez, but Canelo can’t make Welterweight anymore!

I think Brobner is a Grade B boxer overall…. I haven’t seen anything that really, truly impresses me about him yet, although his counters are cool, the baggage he brings with it and the blatant cheating and fouling and nonsense is a real turn off…..

In years to come he may well prove he is an A, or A+ fighter, but for now he showed me only he is a B grade fighter with plenty of potential. who will be found out by a taller boxer who knows how to use the jab aligned with movement and who doeadn’t just engage like Paulie did all night!

Mongrel

Well that strictly depends on the pet.

Your general rodenty type pets like hamsters and rabbits are to my mind a waste of space other than as something to feed to a real pet like a snake, called Clive the Snake.

I had a dog called Chuck Norris who was pretty awesome until I tried to teach him how to do a roundhouse kick. Canines lack the requisite rotational flexibility in the hips, and thus this was a failure and Chuck spent the last years of his life in a wheelchair, smoking a lot of week to help with the pain.

Posted June 23, 2013 7:33 pm 


Mongrel

A few points that stood out for me in this fight…

1. Broner can look world class in short bursts, but he is lazy as hell. Ron Jeremy clearly has better stamina than Broner. Weight drain wasn`t an issue, so why so lacksadaisical?

2. Malignaggi’s claim beforehand was that Broner only fought plodders who came straight at him, and he`d be given a sterner tactical examination by someone who could think. He was 100% right. Broner couldn`t counter the jab, and often let Paulie flurry with impunity before moving. Broners was ineffective at cutting the ring off like Hatton did to the magic man, or simply outboxing him like Khan did.

3. Broner is dirty. There was a low blow early, the pen1s kick, kidney shots, the elbows, and the spinning punch as well we holding reverse punch. Given the verbals in the lead up, this fight needed a strong ref, and a warning the first time it got dirty, instead it got a patsy. Broner should have been deducted for the kick and one for one of the later offences.

4. Shaking your head at someone punching you. You wanna do this to demoralise your opponent then fine. You want to do it to say the punch didn`t land – no that doesn`t work for me. When a guy shakes his head to say something didn`t hurt, I instantly credit the other guys with having landed something worthwhile.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

It’s Me, Ernie: Nobody asked for your opinion here. This guy threatened me first by saying he would throw me on my head, then choke me unconscious and stomp me out. A man can EASILY die form that sort of seriously brutal beating, so I consider it to be a threat of deadly force. So that was cowardly and childish on his part to say that to me out of nowhere.

I said I would do that if he “got the jump on me.” That means that I was talking about acting in self-defense. BTW… I have tons of firearms training and have had a concealed weapons permit for years. I go to the shooting range all the time. Sometimes we use “clip” as a slang term for magazine in my neighborhood. Of course I know the difference.

Speaking of childish, you’re the biggest Child and Troll on ESB, so STFU! Tell that guy “Gold King” to apologize for threatening my life first, and then I’ll take back what I said and apologize.

Broner clearly won. Malignaggi can’t seem to grasp that, but the truth is he lost in his home town even with one blind and biased judge that actually gave Malignaggi the fight. Fire that judge forever. Let’s see Malignaggi lost to Cotto, Khan, Hatton, Broner and one other guy I can’t recall. Either way, Malignaggi is and never was a top boxer ever. Take your loss like a man Malignaggi and move on to retirement. And by the way, lay off of Al Haymon. Stop blaming everyone for your losses. You have done that all your career. Man up and retire now.

That’s ridiculous and utterly amateur “you’re only Great if you stop Malignaggi” first of all who but the crazy bandwagoneers on ESB already dubbed Broner “Great”???? Like Canelo I consider him a very good YOUNG fighter time will tell what both guys are unlike some I have seen guys off to fast starts fail to carry forward..Khan stopped Paulie and how “Great” is he looking? Chin checked by SEVERAL guys…Malignaggi has NEVER been a chump despite his losses, he went 12 with a PEAK Coto who is naturally a BIGGER fighter than Broner with a cracked orbital bone…Broner did NOT have a scratch on him and even Paulie discussed how hard it was to hit him clean, those bodyshots were like tic tac’s on his Torso… What I do question is whether Broner is ready to fight at WW he looked small in there to me… I’m betting he drops to 140 and does his business… Trying to scrap him as “a fraud” after this fight is corny and simply does not fly… To intelligent fans the jury is still
Out on this 23 year old boxer…

Broner has been exposed as not great but just another top 10 boxer at WW nothing special. When you choose the route of being brash your bite has to be louder than your bark like Ali, it’s not showing off if you can back it up, like Cristiano Ronaldo in soccer or John McEnroe in tennis.

Broner is exposed. He gets hit way too much. Has a limited footwork. Doesn’t carry any punch at 147. He’s a top 10 fighter at 147.

Broners NOT exposed he is a work in progress, he’s 23 and if the worst that happens in the near term is jumping 2 divisions and getting a tougher than expected win against a World Class vet in the scheme of things that’s pretty DAMN GOOD… His past several wins were so dominant and over the top we have become spoiled, such is the nature of Great talent… We have seen guys like Khan “exposed” via serial KO losses… Broner needs to dial it back a bit and stay focused on moving thru the ranks… But “exposed” that’s simply childish expecting a guy to lay waste to every single fighter he faces Malignaggi is no ones punk and he was the bigger fighter last night, but that did NOT stop Broner from walking him down and looking to put more hurt on him….I’m more concerned with Broners maturity than his actual abilities because the kid can fight and he has mean intentions in the ring..

SREDMOND

As usual Tarks crack pipe is NOT far from his nightstand 117-111 was too wide and really cheapens a truly dominant Mayweather style fight, which Broner did not produce.. Broner getting 116-112 based on power was about as far as it should go…Paulie made a good point about him being the Champion etc, and I was going for Broner because he has more future upside than Paulie who basically called himself an old man at the post fight presser… The same sort of wide scoring was seen with the Canelo, in both cases I was rooting for the winning fighter and had no issue with their hand being raised but a DOMINANT score should be mirrored by a dominant performance…Broner’s win was clear enough for me but not on par with a Mayweather vs Guerreo affair where one fighter could not create a second of confusion as to who was in control… If Broners people are smart they will trot him outta 147 at least till he fills out more and let him bang up guys at 140….

I know Broner seems to be universally despised but in my estimation he is thinking about one singular issue: money. He looks at boxing and sees that the biggest earner OF ALL TIME has cultivated a ghetto fabulous narcissistic egotistical image and it has somehow added to his aura and his earning potential. Broner thinks this image will catapult him further into the limelight and subsequently earn him more money. Problem is he, like most, is not Mayweather and letting his ego run wild like this potentially causes him problems of expectation he could do without. He won last night though and is obviously talented. On a minor note I hope Paulie’s latter career will help people see that although crude, Hatton is an underrated fighter. He absolutely brutalised Paulie for 11 rounds not losing one of them along the way. That’s a good indicator of just how tough and quick Hatton was. Bika scored a career defining win, and Banks was very dissapointing. As for Mitchell anyone looking for a superficially impressive looking win should jump on him right now for low challenger money and try to score a highlight reel KO. People should have known he couldn’t cut it after he cried upon beating Witherspoon. That spoke volumes of his mental strength and self belief. He scored two wins above his level with Ibragimov and Witherspoon and got waaay overhyped as a result. He can punch hard and looks incredible but he’s not even necessarily good value for money.

@ The Prince: Broner already had a “Castillo” moment, against Ponce de Leon.
In his defence, he is still young, so may improve.
I see it more likely he turns out like Amir Khan, talented but without the ring intelligence to merit the hype, making a career out of cherry picking belts against old or mediocre opposition.
I’d actually quite like to see a fight between them.

Bronner clearly won the fight, Paulie acted like sour grapes incesting that he deserves at least a draw. Clearly Paulie was the bussier fighter, but most of his bunches where blocked on the gloves, or was mad to miss. Bronner landed the harder punches. However, I do believe Paulie is intitled to a rematch, and yes he is a very good fight anouncer with showtime.

Broner’s SKILLS went to 147 and got him the WIN. He left his power at 135 because SKILLS is more important than Power. Paulie says that I am CORRECT on that.

The Prince

A lot of you guys are jumping the gun on Broner. Yes, the man didn’t make any new fans with his actions during and after the fight. But he moved up two weight classes to be the first 3 time divisional champion at a young age. He took a risk and it showed during the fight. Instead of claiming Broner is exposed (which he isn’t) give credit to Paulie for making it an entertaining and close fight. Broner did enough to win it, despite the drop in punching power and Paulie being more active as a result.

Posted June 23, 2013 11:42 am

Broner’s level isn’t set. He’s 23 yrs old. He has more levels to get to. As for now he is a CHAMP at 147. Not bad.

No other boxer in fistic history ever won 3-Divisional World Championships at the age of 23. Danny Garcia had a below expectations showing in his last fight so these things happen—but Adrien clearly won the fight and the event.

Paulie takes a tremendous shot—but being an effective punching bag doesn’t win you fights. I would advise Broner to do a rematch with Paulie and take care of business with a smashing KO. Few fighters go up 2 weight classes and look great the first time out. It’s an adjustment. Duran fought several fights at higher weights before he took on Leonard—and his 2nd go with Leonard he looked terrible. The proper score for this fight was 117-111. Even those huge dark glasses couldn’t hide the punishment Malignaggi took.

Pac should have stayed at JW seeing how he did so well against Hatton. Moving up to WW to catch up with Floyd was a mistake which I think Broner is emulating. Manny did surprisingly well there but he would have been better off at where he more natural size wise. We also might have avoided much of the long and stupid arguments comparing fmj and Packy as well as the accusations.

Posted June 23, 2013 9:52 am

Broners gonna have issues if he stays at 147 at 5″6 1/2 and a KO mindset he’s better suited to 140… Pacquiao lost a lot of his effectiveness power wise at 147, but Manny used to swamp with activity… Broners a better defender than PAC to the head and he’s more economical unless he’s gonna go pure boxer like FMJ he would have issues at 147 in my estimation..

“Gentlemen, if you think this fight was close at all, you may need to take some professional boxing scoring classes” Hecdog, you were also absolutely positive that Guerrero was going to beat Mayweather–not a shred of doubt in your mind. So how can you qualify the way you scored this fight? You can’t really. Not one judge scored Broner winning all but one round. Not one. Not one of the boxing analysts scored Broner winning all but one round. Not one. Body shots count, Hecdog. So do jabs. Paulie threw a ton of both. If Broner was so damned effective how come he didn’t unleash a maelstrom on Malignaggi? Because he couldn’t. Paulie effectively negated Broner’s offense for most of the night. That’s why the fight was so close. It was very clear that Paulie had a strategy to go to the body and he stayed with it all night. He even started out the fight in the 1st round by jabbing to Broner’s solar plexis. And, if Paulie was so harmless as Broner has tried to make him out to be, how come Broner didn’t just walk in and take him out? Because he couldn’t. Paulie’s puch output and excellent movement prevented him from doing that. It was a very close fight.

Good but not great effort by Broner and Malignaggi.

Malignaggi looked good early but he also seemed gassed by round 7, his punches had no snap, he looked very weak.

Broner looked sharp in spots but he also seemed mentally weak and frustrated, throwing punches on the break, throwing weird punches in frustration, and his constant shaking of the head and talking reflected some overall weakness mentally.

I had the fight 116-112 for Broner.

Good — but not great — win for Broner.

Broner was giving him the torso and rolling almost all headshots… That 117-111 was a SILLY score it was a close bout largely due to Broners inactivity at times and Paulie looking to fight somewhat like an Olympian… Broner looked small in there he’s not a WW fighter…

Two out of three exciting fights last night. In my opinion, Broner won a close fight against Malinaggi by way of more-powerful shots, though Paulie definitely outworked Adrien. The Mitchell-Banks rematch was horrible; Mitchell couldn’t do anything and Banks wouldn’t. Mitchell deserved the win for one reason and one reason only: Banks deserved to lose because he simply stopped punching after the third round. Was Johnathan gassed, at that point, or did the few punches Mitchell landed frighten Banks enough to go into a shell? Strange fight, if you can even call what happened there a “fight.” Best fight of the night was Bika-Peridan; I want to see Peridan in another high-profile fight soon…

AUTHORITY

I’ll certainly watch this one again. However, with a good fight night buzz, I saw Paulie squeak one through. Very close, but still a champion’s decision. Paulie certainly could have widened the gap, by stepping up the pace in the latter rounds and making Broner pay a heavier price for carrying that left so low on the inside. Still, I could clearly see the difference in big fight experience in the way Malignaggi was able to smother and tie up Broner, whenever Adrienne was looking for immediate payback for a crisp Paulie combo. Part of this decision can be blamed on Paulie, for not stepping up the pace during those critical lulls in Broner’s inactivity. Only because of Malignaggi’s in and out of the ring boxing IQ, in knowing how Broner is being groomed to be the apex of Mayweather’s career, and how the powers that be, will not allow anything to derail their plans, short of Broner being rendered unconscious. I still give Broner alot of credit, for creating enough doubt in the minds of the judges, to get the overall win. Though Paulie created the blueprint to victory over Broner. This doesn’t at all mean that any fighter can just waltz in and execute said print. Having said that, I still firmly believe, that Broner will be conclusively dethroned well before any serious talks of a Mayweather bout will actually materialize. Broner’s innate slickness, speed and power, will not be enough to compensate for his inexperience as he faces the level of competition that warrants any talks of a Mayweather bout. Hardcore fans will quickly sniff out and expose any attempt to pad Adrienne’s path with inferior opposition.

In a close fight they don’t ever give it to the under dog. I think Broner’s reason for jumping to WW was to get a title from a beatable fighter like PM and then…..PRESTO! a big bucks fight with Floyd would follow. Well he won but will his showing be enough? Still could be. I thought Broner would win it by KO but he got the sd win and the title. PM takes a bit of a moral victory with him.

p.s. broner needs to learn that floyd throws single punches because he is old – when he was younger he threw a lot more combinations which a 23year old should be doing. i think shane mosley could beat broner on that performance.

Paulie clearly won the fight i gave broner 3 rounds at most. Paulie was quicker and had a better work rate – if paulie could punch he would have knocked out broner. Anyone who thinks broner won watch the first 5 roundsand tell me if broner taking punches and shaking his head is enough to win a round. the showtime commentary was disgracefully biased and the pure fact that showtime never showed any punch stats tells u everything u need to know. and the judge that scored it 117-110 needs to be investigated.

What the hell did Banks stop punching for?? He had Mitchell a few punches away from a third round TKO. His career could have had momentum then. I can’t for the life of me understand why they chose to hype Mitchell. I mean most of the genuine contenders, many of them underrated, always get put down by pundits and the up and comers, most of them overrated, get hyped. Arreola would cremate Mitchell even an old shopworn Peter would have him out cold. Maybe its because he has an incredible Mike Tyson style physique??? Banks let himself down big time last night. Where was his self belief or killer instinct? I still want to see Mitchell fight Wladimir because there would be a picture book right hand knockout along the lines of Lewis Rahman. HBO need to seriously re-evaluate their approach to heavyweight boxing.

Tomato Can: All right, that cool bro. But this is the real question: how many body/head shots does it take from PM to equal one power punch to the face from AB in your scoring system? 3 or 4 shots = 1 power punch to the face? Or it more like 5-6 shots = one power shot to the the face? It’s extremely difficult to accurately score a fight like this. So, how are you breaking down your scoring based on volume shots vs. power shots? Just curious.

Broners is an amazing talented fighter moving up two weight divisions and beating a feather punching fighter like Malignaggi. He moved up knowing he couldn’t break an egg and he was right. Malignaggi’s punching was hilarious. He knew that he lost the fight. Speed, power, defense, effective aggressiveness, ring generalship all went to Broner. Broner isn’t losing to anyone right now. He will be one of the ATG’s if he stays clean. Malignaggi gave a good effort even though he may have only won one round. He needs to retire because no one will ever run away from him or repect his pillow punching power. He talks too much and sound dumb. He probably ran his mouth too much after the fight as Broner bated him to get upset. He did, and most likely will get fired for his Al Haymon comment and the supposed dirtiness going on behind the scene. How dumb is this guy. He may have shot himself in the foot nd cost himself a good job. Don’t think Broner had that planned as he did Jessica. Broner is going to be a great one if he stays clean.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing), you’re right about that. Does Mayweather get hit with the punches that Paulies does, and as often? Does Mayweather “with his shot hands” even throw punches as soft as Paulie? I don’t think so. I try and gage things like power, ring generalship, elusivness, on a threshold type graph. Sometime’s there’s a fine line between boxing, back peddling, aggresssion (affective/or not) quantity of punches and quality of punches…. I don’t think I can ever get the the threshold between all that 100 percent right, but through all my years of following boxing I’m usualy very close to being correct….. In my honest opinion the only rounds PM won were the rounds that AB didn’t open up at all, except for one or two at best…. But there were many close rounds that could have gone Paulie’s way. But IMO, Paulie suffered more damage in every close round…. And by the way, I respect your opinion as well. The fight was close enough that many will not agreee on the out come…

Fighting powederpuff punchers like Malignaggi and Rees and shaking your head to say they aren`t hurting you impresses noone. Those guys have never hurt anyone ever – and he only needs to shake his head like that because he is getting hit.

If you are a world class JWW/WW you should be DOMINATING Paulie.

Hatton and Khan both stopped him and they were short of elite, and neither considered an especially damaging puncher.

you can out work you’re opponent every round, but if you’re hitting nothing but gloves and arm’s, with no power at all, and in return your opponent is hitting you with affective punches everytime he opens up. You’re going to end up an un happy and disgrunteled loser.

Broner should give Paulie a rematch. In fights like this, rematches are the only way to remove any doubt. And Paulie deserves it even though I believe Broner did enough to win during the second half of the fight. It likely won’t happen though.

Since when did it change to who hits harder? It’s called boxing…the sweet science for a reason. I don’t care if broner punches harder than paulie. Paulie was the better fighter and even at the age he’s at against a young kid!! Sorry I don’t care what anyone says broner is a fake a fraud and paulie exposed that tonight exactly the way he said he would, but because he’s at the end of his career and broner is at the beginning they were gonna give it to him no matter what happened!!! But guess what they def didn’t foresee this happening, they thought boner was gonna come in and blow paulie out but paulie had a totally different idea in mind. The ref should be ashamed and shrek the so called judge should be totally suspended

Largo, okay fair enough. I can see why some would say PM won 7 of the 12 rounds. But really what was PM doing? He was back peddling whole fight and landing very few meaningful punches. Sure Broner lost every round where he stood there and did nothing. But everytime he threw punches he was landing meaningful shots. I’m no Broner fan, but he beat PM, despite not throwing the majority of the punches in most rounds.

Let’s see who Broner fights next, there’s a lot of fighters out there that he won’t get away with sitting back and picking off punches, as well as leaving his mouth hanging wide open and not getting levrage on punches on the inside. Broner’s done well, but it’s looking like hard times are coming.

Posted June 23, 2013 2:14 am 


Hecdog

Gentlemen, if you think this fight was close at all, you may need to take some professional boxing scoring classes. Those taps that Malignaggi are no effective in any way shape or form. Leave the volume of punches to the amateurs. This is professional boxing. Having watched the fight twice, I tried giving Malignaggi as many rounds as I could, but IMO, he wins 1 round. Broner had ring generalship, effective punching, stronger punches that were precise and clear. He controlled the ring, his defense was much. much better than Malignaggi’s. Boxing is a great sport, but some fans need to see a fight rationally and not emotionally. That way you can give a reasonable and honest score regardless of who you are pulling for. Please see the professional boxing scoring rules. This will help many of you.

I think paulie totally would sign for a rematch tomorrow and beat this low life even better than he did tonight. U don’t take a guys title like that.

It could make him faster but boxing is usually a sport for those where defense comes second nature via fighting from a very young age. One the most durable fighters can start late and be great. unfortunately, Seth’s cranium seems a bit fragile but yes he did a great job considering these trade offs and such a late start.

hookoffthejab, PM’ is actually a heck of a fighter. I’m sure he punches as hard has most hard punching women, but lets be real, if he had power, he would have won tonight. If he had power, Broner wouldn’t have been able to land the only affective punches in the match. PM did all he could do, and Broner still won the majority of the rounds, cause nothing Paulie did really mattered. Still Paulie desreved at least 4-5 rounds, just cause he was the busier fighter.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

I think anyone who scored that fight 117-111 for Broner needs to have their eyes examined or take classes on how to score a pro-boxing match. It was a MUCH closer contest than that.

Anybody who scored it 117-111 is NOT giving PM nearly enough credit for the hundreds of body shots he landed throughout the fight. They may not look as impressive as head shots, but they all scored points and are worth more than some are giving credit. Broner has more power, but he never once hurt, wobbled or knocked down PM.

It could have gone either way at 115-113, but I seriously think PM deserved the nod.
This is my completely objective opinion because I’ve never liked Yo Paulie and never will.

TARK

Mitchell fought as well as he could… I knew they would give him the fight on his activity, but he was hurt more than Banks. He improved a lot in a few months of hard work. His balance and stance are improved but he has a long way to go.. He still reaches… still leans in and exposes himself… still gets ripped with hooks to the temple… He’s moving his feet better, but he needs to work a ton more on in and out movement, keeping his feet under for leverage at all times, not sticking his head where he can get hit so easily with hooks, because he’ll catch one behind the ear and he’ll be gone.

This was an extremely risky fight, but I wouldn’t fight Bryant Jennings or Deontay Wilder off of this result.. Seth also needs a more svelte body.. He needs to get some solidarity of frame going, and that means getting the weight down a little.. David Haye is a small guy, but he takes his weight down to where he’s nothing but hair, muscle, and bones. It does make you faster, sharper, and stronger.

Let’s get Real: Broner did enough to win the fight, but everyone was expecting him to put on a boxing clinic against Paulie. That didn’t happen. Paulie in fact proved his point. That Broner wouldn’t look as good against a veteran opponent with a name and he built his career beating nobodies. So in the war of words, Paulie won; because now people are questioning the hype of Broner being the next Floyd Mayweather. I will say this much: styles makes fights; and there’s not too many fighters as active and as tough as Paulie in the ring. In the end, Broner was still able to pick his shots and eventually out-land Paulie. He’s only 23 and growing. Sorry haters, but this fight didn’t give of foreshadowing to Broner being exposed against other fighters.

Posted June 23, 2013 1:53 am 


Hecdog

After watching this fight over again, I am convinced 100% that Broner won all rounds if you score the way professional boxing is scored. The feather punching mosquito punches Malignaggi was throwing don’t count at all. He looks like he’s lightly tapping a punching bag. Malignaggi was embarrassing. The biased fans and commentating basically had tv viewers believing the fight was close. Malignaggi can throw 100 ineffective punches and Broner throws 5 clean and effective punches, and by boxing rules, guess who wins the round? Broner didn’t look as good as he does only because Malignaggi wanted no part of a fight. Broner walked him down all night. It’s hard to look good when you fight a guy in his home town, have biased commentators because they work for the same company, and fans are cheering for every punch Malignaggi throws. The casual fight fans receives an illusion of the fight if they’re watching on tv and hear what the biased commentators have to say, and then they show they’re biased scores on the screen. Watch the fight over with no volume, and it will be clear to you. A clear UD 12 rounds to 0 or at best 11-1. Broner will remain unbeaten for years to come. No one will beat him because he’s only getting better. Marquez, Bradley, Mathysse, Maidana, Garcia, and Mayweather will not beat this kid. He’s not one of my favorites, but he has more talent than all of these guys. Easy victory for Broner tonight.

Tark, I agree for the most part. Out of the two fighters PM did everything right, it just really didn’t matter, because it came down to what we all know about Paulie. He can box but compaired to most fighters he punches like a girl. All Paulies combinations didn’t amount to squat, really. Sure it got him a few rounds, but Broner didn’t have to work half as hard to acually outwork what PM was doing. I think antying from a 115-113 to a 117-111 score for Broner was a good scoring.

I don’t care if you had the fight 115-113, 116-112, or 117-111, it depends on how you score fights — but the guy who had Paulie winning is an idiot.

Broner landed more clean punches and many more power punches… plus his punches were a lot harder… I scored it 117-111, giving Broner most of the rounds he did the most damage… I gave Paulie 3 rounds, not because he landed anything effective, but he was working his ass off and some punches made contact.

Broner did a poor job. If you can’t stop Paulie there’s something wrong with you. I knew Paulie was going to start yelling and screaming after the fight and complaining about the 117-111 score… But everybody in the arena knew when that score was announced Broner won it.. Nobody on Planet Earth would give the fight to Paulie by that score.

Dont play with matches

You would of thought Broner could of took a slight risk, and try and knock Malignaggi out, walk through him, Boxing is not as simple as that, Broner is not good enough, he is a good fighter, but not as good as all the hype, he’s average.

@Killing Moon- I like both Paulie and Broner and to be honest I loved the trash talking going into the fight. PM won the trash talk and IMO Broner won the fight. I would be interested to see who they put in front of Broner next and I fully expect PM to fight again.

Posted June 23, 2013 1:18 am

I wouldn’t say Broner went life and death with PM. Come one PM doesn’t have the power for that type of thing with anyone. Broner was just comfortable picking off PM’s shots… But for all of Broner’s athletic ability, he doesn’t seem to be an overly smart fighter. He’s only 23, but he’s probably going to see a brutal loss coming up at 140-147.

Squared-Circle (a.k.a. LionKing)

Not only did Broner get exposed again for having poor-to-average defensive skills, but his power didn’t look very impressive at 147lbs. I don’t think he really hurt or wobbled PM once — and he doesn’t have anything close to an iron chin.

Haymon and the media machine are trying their best to hype AB into the next Mayweather, but he’s going to get beat badly by one of the elite 5-8 at 140/147lbs.
It’s going to happen in the near future — unless AB ducks the top dogs. Real talk.

Paulie was somthing like a +1000 underdog. The fact that it was close completely exposed Broner.

Broner got outworked and outboxed tonight. You have to beat the Champ convincingly to take his strap—especially in his home town. And AB failed to do that. Period.

If Paulie only had a good straight R, R hook and overhand R, he would’ve tattoo’d Broner’s face and head all night long.

Broner’s defense is average at best, and the first time he gets in the ring with an elite fighter with REAL power at 140/147lbs…. he’s gonna get smashed. Real talk.

Broner is talented but doesn’t have what it takes to beat the best at 140 and 147…..nuff said. He will lose soon if he fight a Top 5 fighter at 140 or 147lbs. Honestly, I even see Judah or heck, even Amir Khan beating him.

Broner destroyed Malignaggi for 12 rounds. Hometown boy gets help from all the judges. I saw Broner winning 11 rounds clearly. Malignaggi’s feather pitty pat punching was laughable. Keep that stuff in the amateur ranks. The clean effective punching was all by Broner. The harder cleaner shots were Broner’s. These judges need to get some glasses and learn how to score a fight. Malignaggi looked like a little girl with those punches. The home town was really trying to rob Broner and Malignaggi sounded like a cry baby and a whiner in his interview. Malignaggi, you were beaten by a guy that came to your own home town. He can say anything he wants to. Jessica comment was cruel, but funny. He gave it to Malignaggi one more time. Malignaggi, time to retire for good. Your feather punching is hilarious, now go away.

Broner has been exposed for the hype that he is. This performance is nothing to be proud of. Feasting on hapless opponents his last few fights only underscored what Paulie said before. Broner IS a media creation. He needs to go back and learn the FUNDAMENTALS OF BOXING AND while he is at it DROP the foolish and ignorant Mayweather impersonation outside the ring . Its bad enough to have to deal with the original disrespectful thuggish one himself. Matthysese would destroy this fella and Thurman, I wouldn’t want to even think of what he would do to this badly overrated and now exposed hype job. Way to go Paulie.

I had Broner winning 116-112 (8 rounds to 4). I gave Malinaggi perhaps 3 of the first 4 rounds, but after that Broner took over, by landing the harder, cleaner and more accurate punches. The punch stats showed exactly what was happening in the fight…. Malignaggi throwing a lot of punches but not connecting, and Broner (who out-landed PM by the way) being a lot more accurate and powerful. I would have liked to see Broner go to the body with the left hook a bit more though. All credit to PM for hanging in there (as I knew he would), but Broner was the clear winner in my books.

Paulie’s going to get beat up again. I hope I’m wrong though. Maybe he’ll land something on Broner’s wide open jaw. The we’ll find out if Broner’s chin is weaker than a paper bag, cause Paulie can’t punch his way out of a paper bag.

Dan Adams

Bika – Periban was an fantastic fight; but Mitchell – Banks was about as boring as a fight can get. I’m not sure if I am glad that fight is over, or if it never started. Mitchell wins because he threw more punches than did Banks. Mitchell threw one punch and Banks threw zero; at least it seemed that way, at times. Johnathan Banks proved that he needs to quit fighting and train Wlad Klitschko and others full-time. Seth Mitchell proved that he can’t take a punch; he did absolutely nothing to get any fight fan excited by him. Now, rematch Periban and Bika so they can show Banks and Mitchell how it is done.

Q: I do not think Broner can cut the ring off on Paulie. I think he will chase him all night and get pot shot while not being able to get his power shots off because Paulies movement will not allow him to set his feet. Well. That is my theory, anyway and I am sticking with it. On the other hand if Broner can cut off the ring and stop the jab it will be a bad quick night for Paulie. I do not think Broner has the skills, we will see.

Wow what a stinker. My prediction of a Banks KO is for crap. I see Mitchell getting the decision here but won’t go far against elite fighters. Chin is dodgy.

Posted June 22, 2013 11:07 pm 


Q

ADL: I agree with that assessment, but I think what will actually happen is that we will get to see MORE facets of Broner… this is when we see if he HAS those other facets if he needs them, but yes… Broner is quite stationary… with a wide stance and rather flat footed, although quick on his feet. We will see what happens in round one. After that, the storyline will really open up.

Posted June 22, 2013 11:04 pm 


Q

ADL: I won’t say I’m sold on Broner, but I think he’s good enough to stop Paulie sooner than anybody else has. Paulie has a great jab, but not great head movement, this will be interesting, Broner tends to come straight at guys, so Paulies jab could hypothetically be quite effective, but Paulie doesn’t have great head movement and Broner can come up the middle well… Paulie also fights with his hands down… hmmmm… this probably will not go too well for Paulie. let’s see how Broner functions at 147…. I think Broner is too strong for Paulie’s jab… we will see after the first round.

What happened to Banks? He had a knockout in the second round, then he just stopped being active. This is Banks fight to win or lose.

The Mitchell/Banks fight is awful. It typifies the current state of HW boxing…. it stinks!!! Terrible footwork/balance, no body punching, no combinations. What are their conrners/trainers telling them between rounds!!?? I think that Wlad would KO Mitchell with the first jab that he would throw…. talk about a glass jaw!

Q

ADL: ¡¡¡jua!!! Rigo beating Donaire was nobodies upset, jajajaja. Well not in my mind, but I agree many people were doubting Rigo in that bout, but it was clear that the skill difference was great and that Donaire’s power was his only chance… i don’t know how anyone could not see that… but you’re correct I guess about the mindless doubters. This is different however… well, the difference is that I would have agreed with you about Rigo/Donaire …but this time …not so sure sir.

Q

This is your average heavyweight bout. A 6 year pro who doesn’t take a great punch and a guy that looks like a cruiserweight having a weirdly competitive bout. Mitchell is too scared…. he’s being patient as he should, but he needs to push the pace in spots and get shots off.

ADL: nooooooooooooo, that’s not close to a proper comparison. Rigo’s skill set is far beyond 99.9999% of most fighters ever…. and he’s super talented. Broner is much more talented in this one, and the skill differential isn’t at that level. We’ll all see later though.

if he hooks it over like that, he needs to drop it low… or he needs to straighten it out. The Mexican needs to keep jabbing and hooking off his jab

Q

Sakio needs to swing that right counter he keeps throwing lower and to the body. Bika is open for the left hook, he drops his right coming forward, but he tries to throw a sledge hammer over, but the trajectory isn’t always working, he needs to drop it to the body
