I think Cotto wants to fight 160 pounds Martinez next instead of Canelo, it doesn’t make sense and Money.

Cotto retired MargaCheato, like Trinidad ended Vargas’s Hyped Career.. Tumbo is a very bitter little fat Mexican..

Tumbo.., “Why won’t Cotto accept Canelo’s challengeS? Oh yeah, he’s a ringworn, shell-shocked, and permanently Margarito-damaged.”

That’s a unique perspective Tumbo… Here’s the general consensus.

Cotto wasn’t so damaged he couldn’t go a hard 12 with Floyd and Trout. It seems Floyd had kind of a bloody nose there. Funny thing — and Cotto beat the living crap out of Cheato before stopping him… More likey Cheato was permanently damaged when his eye was slammed shut during his beating and stoppage loss to ATG Cotto. Cheato hasn’t been heard from since. Cotto retired the cheat.

Now… Cotto looked better than ever in his last fight. He’s being discussed as an opponent for Martinez and Canelo. He has a big fan following and a lot of options.

PR Reporter.., “Miguel, why did you stand and stare at Margarito as he was being tended to right after you beat him?”

Cotto.., “He cheated me and I got revenge. I just looked at him like a conqueror staring down his defeated victim. I was drinking in my victory … and I feel very good about it… It was a long time coming.”

Anyone hear from Quillin or Martinez since Saturday? Last I heard they pulled up their big boy Depends Diapers after crapping their pants. GGG needs to unify 160. HBO needs to demand it from these other belt holders. Fact.

I think GGG Canelo would be a great fight. Probably would not happen. Quillen has good power, but i think he gets hit too easily and don’t think he can handle GGG’s power.

I think ES needs to get HIS facts straight the fight was in the THEATRE, the garden ARENA had the Rangers playing at the same time.
The Theatre holds for fights, right around 4,500 max, and according to box office only 2 tickets went unsold.

You can think that all you want. If that was the case GGG would already be on PPV. He is not. He would be making millions of dollars. He is not in that range yet. I am not saying he will never be because I think he will but he is not at the moment. And a Floyd fight is out of the question. GGG is too big. Oh and has never made 154.

Posted November 4, 2013 3:37 pm

Get your fact straight. You do realize they can cut the venue in half or what not right? They said GGG was a sell out. Did a bit over 4000 people. They said only 150 did not sell.

If 2.2 PPV were sold to see an OVERWEIGHT 172 POUNDS FLATFOOTED STAMINA PLAGUE YOUNGSTER who FORGOT he was Mexican on a Mexican Holiday than 3.5 Million will see the 159 GGG who doesn’t have STAMINA PROBLEM and NOT FLATFOOTED and has MEGA PUNCHING POWER even with the GIRLY grant gloves.

Posted November 4, 2013 3:23 pm 


123=VI

I believe that 3.5 Million will buy PPV to see Floyd lose against GGG who only weights 159 pounds and losing only 5 pounds would not affect him what so ever especially when he doesn’t have STAMINA problem and its not Flatfooted and has MEGA PUNHING POWER even with the girly Grant gloves.

Posted November 4, 2013 3:07 pm

No make no Mistake 2.2 PPV bought PPV to see Floyd lose and I have no doubt that GGG will sell that and more believe me GGG has s better chances than a OVERWEIGHT STAMINA PLAGUE YONGSTER who forgot that he was even Mexican on a Mexican Holiday…..and GGG is not like that especially in the STAMINA department.

But Canelo did grew some balls and fought the #1 p4p undefeated champion Floyd he lost but he will learned from that and its only fair to challenge somebody like Khan, Ortiz or Cotto to build back his confidence.

Posted November 4, 2013 2:57 pm 


PEEJ

Nope Floyd vs GGG does not make a lot of PPV money. GGG is now starting to get known. But he is not PPV known. That is why he is fighting in 4000 seat venues and not 15000 seat venues. Canelo sold out the Alamo Dome. He showed he was PPV worthy. GGG is building a fan base but let it be built. Plus GGG is too big for Floyd and not to mention he has never made 154 before. There are plenty of lucrative fights at 154. He should drop down and try to get one of those fights to show he can make 154.

Posted November 4, 2013 2:55 pm 


123=VI

But Canelo lost to Floyd so its only fair to say Floyd vs GGG for Floyds 154 WBC belt besides they are both undefeated and it make more sense and a lot of PPV MONEY. and GGG is more than willing to come down from 159 to 154 with ease, Canelo is the one that should be fighting Khan and not Floyd.

Posted November 4, 2013 2:49 pm

Can’t strip him of his championship belt. He needs to lose it in the ring, move up or down and give the belt up or retire. That is what caused all this garbage with sanctioning bodies. Them being able to strip the belts from people. Not fighting mandatories that had no business being a mandatory

Sergio M hasn’t too many more fights left in him and he doesn’t want GGG. Sturm and Geale swerved Golovkin and Quillin is doing the same. Gennady Golovkin looks THE man at 160 these days.

Fun fight to watch. GGG seemed to be holding back most of the fight. I thought Stevens may have buzzed Golovkin once or twice during the fight, but GGG took his shots easily. Stevens had the hand speed to make it interesting for a round or two. I would gladly watch another Golovkin fight.

GGG had nerves in the first 2 rounds, against someone like Ward he’ll be nervous for the entire fight. Gennady will get humiliated against Ward. Like I’ve always said please bring Mayweather vs GGG at 154lbs. Floyd will beat him easy.

GGG is very formidable however, after Saturday, it cannot be said he’s unbeatable. I don’t think there’s anyone in the 154lb division who can beat…none at all…including Floyd ” I will take them to the cleaners cherrypicker.” Ward for one has the best chance of beating him quite easily. GGG as good as he seems to be has quite a few vulnerabilities. I was surprised at the ease Stevens was able to land quite a number of punches. A jabber like Ward can keep him off his game. Now, if Martinez could just improve his stamina, enough to move around for 12 rounds continuous rounds, GGG would lose by Dec.

Fair Fights

Cyber-H@mster, I agree with ya. Murray is good and a hard son of gun. And still improving. He might give GGG more of a fight than people expect. The guy simply has to throw more leather and believe in himself more. He’s the best of all the others out there, so give the guy a crack at GGG.

Posted November 4, 2013 1:01 am

Old School Rules

You could be right my friend. Murray, as number 1 contender, is certainly a worthy challenger. I couldn’t believe Martinez got the decision against him. Murray had him down and as PEEJ and others here pointed out, many people felt Murray won the fight and was robbed. I still think GGG will beat him if they fight, but Murray is hard as nails and it won’t be easy to beat him. I have to agree with the 12 round UD for GGG but Murray will test him far more than GGG’s recent fights. The other names are more glamorous because they hold the belts, but I don’t think Martinez (in a rematch) or Quillin beats, Murray. Of all the 160′s out there, I think Murray is the hardest. As Cheez rightly pointed out, Murray simply needs to throw more punches and perhaps believe in himself a bit more. He’s clearly good, and hard as nails, but he has to be more assertive. His hesitancy cost him against Sturm, when he had the win and ended up with a draw, although I still feel he did enough to beat Sturm that night, but it was in Germany. And again against Martinez, he had him down, but Murray hesitated when he should gone after the champ and it cost him again. Murray admitted as much in the post fight interviews. He knows what he did wrong, it remains to be seen if Martin has learnt his lessons and finally takes command when he gets another shot at the title. I like Murray’s sense of humor when asked “How do you beat Golovkin?” Murray replied. “With a baseball bat!” LOL

Golovkin has been doing his best to get Martinez and Quillin into the ring with him………………Void is still running from Pac, so we all know that Void will never come anywhere near Golovkin………..I want to see Golovkin clean out the middle weight division before he goes up in weight. Brinkley predicted that Golovkin would beat Stevens, he also predicted that Golovkin would also beat Ward. The problem with Ward is that he will not fight anywhere except his home town with his personal referee, judges, boxing commission and now Ward refuses to take a drug test for his next fight. Ward does not appear to be an honest person………..

Qullins nickname should be “Phantom t.u.r.d”.

He`s a massive t.u.r.d that needs flushing, but every time you go for the handle, you look down and the bowl is clean.

Where did that phantom t.u.r.d go? You know it was there a second ago because you heard a great big splash as you crimped it off.

Come on phantom t.u.r.d, GGG needs to flush you.

@Fair Fights

I think Murray can extended GGG 12 rounds if (and only if) he stays behind his high guard and uses his jab to keep Golovkin off of him. If he exchanges with GGG I think he’ll get KO’d pretty quickly, although if he has taken that lesson from the Martinez fight like you say and wants to go for the win, more power to him. I’d love to see the fight either way.

Posted November 3, 2013 11:46 pm 


Cyber-H@mster

Murray is GGG’s mandatory.

Noone wants to fight GGG WITH the belt.

Who will fight him WITHOUT a belt?

Murray beat Martinez, he should be the linear champion.

If neither Martinez nor Quillin will take their beating then I have no problem with Murray getting the shot.

Posted November 3, 2013 11:36 pm 


Fair Fights

You could be right, Cheez, but Murray said after the Martinez fight, he should really have nailed Martinez to make sure he got the win, and he admitted to that mistake, I think he’s learnt that lesson and would attack more, but that leaves him open to be attacked in return. I take GGG to win, by sheer punch volume as well, but Martin won’t just cover up and take a beating, he’ll fight back, I see it as a tough fight for GGG with Martin will give him serious problems along the way. I think it’s an exciting fight. I hope Martin gets the chance to fight in the USA some day, but cos he’s done time in prison, it ain’t happening just yet. I think Murray beats Martinez in the rematch by KO, and he beats Sturm in a rematch on neutral ground, and he beats Barker and Quillin.

Cheezb

Agree with all that Murray is a good opponent for Golovkin.

My only problem with Murray is that he just doesn’t do enough to win fights (or at least not stamp enough authority to make a definitive win).
I’d wager that against Golovkin, he’d definitely go the distance but he’d spend far too much time behind the guard, and far too little time firing back and lose a fairly straight forward UD (i.e. far more definitive than against Martinez, coz I just don’t see Murray being able to even wobble Golovkin, let alone drop him).
If I were to say how the fight would go overall, I’d say Golovkin storms through the first half of the fight, 7-9 would be competitive with a slight GGG edge, then Murray would finish 10 and 11 stronger (i.e. after GGG expends a lot of energy firing through Murray’s guard in the early part of the fight)… but the final round would likely be mostly GGG as I don’t see Murray gambling with a “last stand” brawl, so will retreat back behind his guard.

Would be an awesome fight though and a good chance to see how Golovkin goes over 12 rounds.

Posted November 3, 2013 10:31 pm 


Fair Fights

Murray is good and hard as nails, he’d be a much tougher test than anyone else at 160. He’s better than Martinez, Sturm, Barker, Quillin, he’s no walk over, GGG would have a tough time against him, and Martin is still improving. He’s the number 1 contender and beat Martinez in Argentina and got robbed. He’ll be strong at 168 as well. Just because Murray doesn’t shout his mouth off and stays quiet, doesn’t mean he’s not the real deal. Martin is good.

Posted November 3, 2013 10:15 pm 


Old School Rules

@hookoffthejab

Your absolutely right, a win over Murray proves nothing. But the bottom line is that Golovkin is fighting in Monte Carlo on Feb. 1st, and not on HBO. That eliminates Martinez and Quillin as possibilities. GGG will hopefully get one or both of them later this year, but in the meantime Murray is the best option. He’s big and durable, and has a decent chance of taking GGG the distance. It will also serve as a good yardstick to compare how Glovkin handles him vs how Martiniez did.

So yeah, it proves nothing, and GGG has already done enough to deserve Sergio and KC, but thats simply not going to happen on Feb. 1st, and Murray is the best alternative. So I say bring him on.

Posted November 3, 2013 10:13 pm

Murray has been to Germany and Argentina, away fights and had a disputable draw and a disputable loss, so I don’t think it’s an easy fight for Golovkin.

Look, we all know what is going on here. Sampson Lekowicz and Lou Dibella along with Main Events are working hand in hand to block Golovkin from ever getting his shot at the Middleweight Title against the most overrated in 40 years, Sergio Martinez. This is a fact. The reason they say “Who has he fought” is because this frauds keep putting roadblocks in his way that he has no problem destroying. They want to keep throwing this roadblocks like this clown Stevens, which does absolutely NOTHING but WASTE GGG’s time and training when he should be the one putting Martinez in his own casket. They don’t fool me one bit.

I think GGG vs Murray would be a good fight for February. Murray is a big MW at 6’0 & close to 175 lbs, and he’s very durable with solid skills. Murray’s doesn’t have much of a chance to win, but his high guard, size, and toughness give him a good chance of going the distance with Golovkin, which would be interesting to see.

A win over Murray on Feb. 1st would then be a perfect set up for a unification with Martinez later in the year.
