Mendez is a good boxer, but he is not an elite contender…His defense was poor,…a couple times he was almost KO by Usmanee…

Anybody post on the forum? If so, an interesting conversation with Tyson from on the ropes. He talks about steroids in modern sports.

You can google it since it doesn’t allow me to put up the link.

Mike Tyson: “In all sports we all want to compete and to be the best and to be the best we will do anything”

Jenna J:Mike the question I hear most from boxing fans lately is “How would Tyson do against today’s champions.” I have you here now, so how do you think you would do against the Klitschko’s?

Mike Tyson:I would always beat them, listen, I would think the same way that I would think today, I’d probably be using some more steroids or something but I was beating them the same way when I wasn’t using the stuff. It’s very difficult to compete now without using that stuff. I know people say “I don’t use it” but it’s almost impossible to compete without that stuff, almost impossible. It’s part of our culture now.

Jenna J:You say it’s hard for fighters today to compete with without using something. A lot of fighters are taking it now Mike, a lot of fighters are on performance enhancing drugs. What do you think of where boxing is?

Mike Tyson:No, no. All the fighters are on it, the ones that can afford it are on it. That’s my opinion only, I haven’t seen nobody do it but it’s common knowledge

That’s the funny thing about judging.

A lot of people don’t factor in that a fighter’s style often greatly influences a judge’s scorecard…it’s sad but true.

Judges are supposed to place most of the emphasis on clean, effective, and consequential punching. Everything else should be viewed as a tie-breaker so to speak.

Usmanee was the aggressor throughout the entire fight but it wasn’t always effective aggression. Unlike Marrero, Mendez wasn’t falling into the trap of fighting his opponent’s fight.

Argenis was calm throughout and showed a very good defense for the majority of the contest. Usmanee had a great game plan and tried to smother Mendez’s offense through all 12 rounds.

That was the only distance in which he could win the fight. From mid to long range, mendez would have picked him apart.

As it was, mendez did a very good job of trying to create distance by leaning away from shots and countering effectively. But, I did think the referee was allowing him to use his lead hand and forearm a little too much to creat distance. i felt the ref should have done more to control that on the inside. You could see that it was really bothering Usmanee on the inside.

I thought both fighters fought a great fight, but I had Argenis winning the bout with clean, effective, counter punching to the body and head in eight of the twelve rounds. 116-112 for mendez.

But there were several rounds that could have gone either way and were very difficult to score…I have no problem with the draw

TARK, Mendez had a great defense. He was as smooth as butter. I’ll agree on the Atlas thing, however. And the Tyson/Atlas hugfest was a tad too much.

Mendez was corn holed by the NY judges.

My bad I mixed up their names in my prior posts. Obv it was Mendez who faded and Usmanee who brought the heat late. For the record I gave Mendez every round from rounds 1-7 except the 3rd, then gave 8-12 to Usmanee, so it was Mendez by 7-5 IMO. Mendez slowed a bit and his timing which was excellent early unraveled late. He was cracking Usmanee everytime he tried to rush in during the early rounds but couldn’t time him right once he got tired. Mendez also could’ve been penalized a point for hitting Usmanee after the bell 3 times, but was never warned.

“Atlas’s score was ridiculous, and he’s a portentous ass. A lot of mediocre judges would have scored for Usmanee because of his grit and work rate. You don’t need to slam the judging every week when your card is the most ridiculous in the house.” – Cosign TARK. When ESPN showed Atlas’ card after 9 rounds he had it 9-0 for Usmanee. Atlas cannot complain about judging when his card is patently absurd and even the ignorant Facebook fans had it 6-3 at that point.

That was a fun ending to the FNF season. I had Usmanee winning 7-5 on rounds, controlling the early rounds and letting Mendez back into the fight by inexplicably taking his foot off the gas after the 7th round. Why? Either because he wasn’t in shape to go 12 hard rounds or he started feeling Mendez’s pressure. Atlas’ rant was totally inappropriate. In a close fight a 2 point swing in favor of either fighter is not a robbery, and calling that draw a robbery will only cause people to ignore his rants when they’re actually warranted, during a true robbery.

It was a decent fight for two guys who have little punching power. Mendez is cute but he basically pitter patties and then throws one hard shot. Usmanee reminds me of Leon Spinks who throws a thousand punches and thinks he’s a power puncher. Good fight for a pure boxing fan who likes boxing however. Teddy atlas is a broken record. I always said you can record him once and play the recording over and over for any fight and that’s how he sounds. Having said that, I think he is good for the sport. He’s one of the few guys left who is trying to keep the sport alive from that other alternative fighting sport that is gettting all the fans from the trailer trucks. It is a lost cause but with appreciation from this fan. Dam espn and comcast home page covers MMA but rarely if ever covers boxing anymore. I guess they are run by executives under 20 years old.

What was with Tyson’s response when being asked about if he could beat the Klitschkos?

Fighting CLEAN with food and water, no medicine, no steroids, no nothing, clean fight, healthy guy…if I can’t beat everybody, I would bet my life I could.

I had it a very close win for Mendez, 115-114. I hope they have a rematch.

Hopefully things work out for Mike, certainly did a fine job with that card last night. Add for teddy atlas they seriously need to get rid of him. Scoring the fight 11-1 as a poster before said was just ridiculous. What was even worse was the way he put down the fan scoring if 7-5 practically calling them retarted without openly saying it. Turns out that the viewers were a little closer than you Ted, maybe you should climb of your high horse and learn some modesty

It was always going to be a curiosity to see how a meeting with Tyson and Atlas would pan out. Atlas has always been very vocal in his criticism of Tyson, it turned out to be quite a respectful reunion.

TARK

Mendez won by landing the sharper and more damaging punches, but he was almost as poor a defender as Usmanee…

Atlas’s score was ridiculous, and he’s a portentous ass. A lot of mediocre judges would have scored for Usmanee because of his grit and work rate. You don’t need to slam the judging every week when your card is the most ridiculous in the house.

It’s “Mendez,” Gus. Anyways, I wasn’t impressed with Ushmanee or Mendez. Ushmanee practically sends a letter before he throws every punch and Mendez tries to look and be slick but he isn’t.

Mike Tyson was something else though. He’s really turning his life around. Too bad we didn’t get to talk the night I said hello to him in Las Vegas.

Anyways, tonight will be a fight: Mares/Gonzalez! And I’m likin’ Abner!

Teddy’s a dope.

Glad to see that Mike seems to be finding peace in his life. That inner rage might have been an asset in the ring, but makes the rest of your life a living hell for you and everyone around you. I hope that he stays on this path and is able to enjoy the rest of his life. Good luck Champ!
