You’re quite welcome, Joe! I look forward to watching your videos from the Alamodome. As you know, there were some highly entertaining fights last night.

“Chavez will not be effective at using the entire ring and setting traps for Vera because that’s not his forte” (lol). you’ve got a Lot to learn, Joe. walking Vera into lead rights and thunderous hooks is precisely what won the fight for Jr. last night. although, i could’ve done without Jr’s final-round antics.

this fight-card was a perfect example of why fight-fans need to disregard the white noise created by assorted “experts” and “journalists” (i.e. shills). Lomachenko is exceedingly lucky that he was in v. the featherweight second-string. he would’ve been trampled by the likes of Garcia, Mares, Gonzalez, Gamboa, or even Donaire, Ponce, Lopez, or Martinez. he looked and fought like an amateur completely out of his depth with his pitty-pat flurries and zero body-attack, i.e., “Don’t Believe the Hype”.

BEARS my friend,

castillo vs corales.

My brother rang me the day after that fight, he loves boxing as well, and he was very excited, going into detail about each round, begging me to watch it, telling me the 10th was best 10th he’d ever seen. When I got to watch the fight he was right and more so … that 10th was incredible! I’ll never forget Joe Goossen say, “You better get it done now.” And Diego did it. Incredible, just incredible. It makes me smile to remember that round, what a turn around. Corales was a great fighter, a terrible loss to boxing so young. But that fight, and that 10th round will be remember forever.

Agreed my friend, I’m going for Chavez because if he loses tonight, I think he’s done as a fighter at the top. I’ve got Chavez by TKO because I watched that last fight and when Chavez actually hit Vera, he hurt him badly on more than one occasion, also I think Ward v Chavez is on the cards, (Ward would win of course) but it’s a big money fight for both. Chavez knows that, and I can’t see him blowing it by losing to Vera. But I’d love to see the underdog win! :) My head says Chavez, my heart wants Vera to win. Can’t wait!

“In the theater of the unexpected, anything can and often does happen!!”

I agree my friend, I’m not sure if you ever saw this fight …

Carl Thompson v Sebastian Rothman – 2004.

Rothman was beating Carl ‘The Cat’ Thompson all over the ring, round after round, Thompson was done, falling about like a drunk man at times if I recall, the ref was on the verge of stopping the fight, the commentators were calling for Thompson to retire, and then in the 9th round, BANG! Rothman was flattened by a huge right hand punch and my jaw hit the floor in total shock. That’s why I love boxing, Joe. Moments like that are fairly rare to be honest, but boy when they happen they are spectacular.

“Dude, you know your stuff, and love the fight game so all respect to you, but Lomachenko is much better than Lopez. Salido is tough, and deserve a lot of respect, I like the guy as a fighter, but Lomachenko’s boxing class will show in this fight. ”

Thanks, Anonymous, and I appreciate your knowledge as well. I admit that my my knowledge of Loma’s skills, abilities, and fights is limited. I have watched about seven of his amateur fights but there is no professional record of his to follow. Salido on the other hand has proven that regardless of how big the number is in his loss column, he’s always a force to be reckoned with, and he’s a cagey ring veteran.

I expect a great fight. I think Salido will have problems with Loma’s handspeed and footwork. But I also think Salido is tougher and hits harder. And I have watched Lomachencko wilt a bit under hard punches and pressure, even though he say she welcomes pressure fighters–fighters that come at him instead of running away. Either way, it should be a great fight.

But my main focus is on Chavez/Vera. What a tough call this fight is. I also said I favored Chavez this time, but boy, is Vera ready to go. So is his trainer Ronnie Shields. Ronnie’s a no-BS kind of guy, so when he says he likes what he sees in Brian, you know Brian is ready to rumble.
I think Brian is going to put on a helluva show tonight. Thing is, will it be enough?

Posted March 1, 2014 5:26 pm

“The obvious pick is Chavez by stoppage because it’s a total mismatch.”

Welcome back, but don’t bet on it. Vera is very confident going into this fight and his trainer Ronnie Shields is very confident as well. Brian will let it all hang out this fight. It’s going to be a great, exciting match.

te tumbo: “this was a pretty good interview. also very accurate translation by what’s-his-name(?). anyway, “closing the distance” will be Vera’s fight-plan going in. keeping his distance will be the challenge for Jr. to replicate his win over Manfredo Jr. with long hooks and rights. otherwise, Jr. himself said he can be at a disadvantage v. smaller and quicker fighters on the inside. what his legendary father did along the ropes is the primary tactic Jr. needs to emulate v. a hard-charging Vera. avoid and deflect Vera’s punches to place thunderous hooks of his own. Jr. by UD.”

One of the reasons why Vera had so much success in the first fight, is because he would throw combinations and quickly step to the side and out of harm’s way. Most are merely attributing his success to Junior’s lack of conditioning. But if you watch the first match-up closely, he’s not squaring up with Chavez like he used to in most of his fights before training with Ronnie Shields.

Chavez will not be effective at using the entire ring and setting traps for Vera because that’s not his forte.

He must close the distance and cut off Vera’s reaction time in order to be effective in this fight. He has to push Vera into a gun fight tonight, or he good be outboxed and outworked once again.

“Size Matters Gentlemen, to say it doesn’t is silly.. ”

Of course size matters, Public Enemy. If it didn’t we wouldn’t see so many fighters coming into the ring much heavier than they weighed at the weigh-in. But generally speaking skills is more important than size. What are the chances of Mayweather fighting a Klitschko? Not a good comparison. But Floyd himself knows how much size matters, that’s why he waited to make the fight with Canelo until he could get it at a catchweight. It’s why he busted his weight when he fought Marquez. Yet, Floyd has consistently beaten opponents who are significantly bigger than him.

Yes, it’s idiotic to say size doesn’t matter because it truly does–in a number of ways.

@ Boxtra and I quote “SKILLS is more important than SIZE.”

Arguably Floyd Jnr is the most skillful fighter going around, so he should beat everyone. I’d back W. Klitschko to pummel Floyd into oblivion. This is why there are weight divisions because skills cannot always overcome size. So much for your “facts” and “truth”.

Bryan is very underrated coming into this fight with much to prove to the crowd who believes that the first fight was exclusively a product of Junior’s poor conditioning.

Vera truly feels that it was his footwork and faster hands that froze Chavez in the pocket!!

We’ll see who is right tomorrow night!!

I tell you this bro, Vera is on a high based on the first fight and that alone can make a boxer real dangerous or real sloppy. I think we will see Vera and JR both skip a “feeling out each other ” round and Texas explodes in round 1 bro.

This is going to be the first mega fight of the year and you are right with some over looking Vera. The real fans know this kid has heart and brings a warrior passion to each fight.

I am excited…..I will be standing up for this one for however long it might last.

Jr KO’s Vera, easy work man. Skills pays the bills. I remain the greatest fight prophet EVER born. NOT the imposter below.

“Orlando Salido failed to make the Featherweight limit of 126 pounds by scaling in at a very heavy 128.25 pounds. While his opponent, former two time Olympic Gold Medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko, comfortably weighed in at 125.25.” – So the veteran shows up heavy and the guy in his second pro fight is ready to go. This means if Lomachenko wins as everyone presumes he’s the new title holder but Salido can’t win the belt. Guess he figures he’s a dead man walking so no reason to make weight.

Good job Jr. We’ve vilified him when he fails but should give him props when he’s prepared. Of course any pro should be prepared for each and every fight. Thumbs down to Salido. That’s a shocker.

You can take it from here Herron. The software on MY tablet has passed me OFF. I’m going to go get another device.

BUSTAJAY-I’m happy that the TRUTH and FACTS give you a GOOD laugh. Laughing makes you live longer. SO you can thank ME for that.

DUMB software strikes again. CORRECTION….Salido not making weight…

Also, you’re right on the money, Bustajay!!

This is a great match-up…should be ten times more explosive than the first meeting!!

Bryan is very underrated coming into this fight with much to prove to the crowd who believes that the first fight was exclusively a product of Junior’s poor conditioning.

Vera truly feels that it was his footwork and faster hands that froze Chavez in the pocket!!

We’ll see who is right tomorrow night!!

Sailor not making weight didn’t take any pop out of the Fight. Just made it more satisfying for ME. Because once again SKILLS will defeat SIZE which throws many FANS EXCUSE that Floyd WON over Marquez because he was 2lbs overweight. Well Salido is 2lbs overweight TOO. SO according to guys like Hissydalgo’s POOR logic Salido should WIN by a landslide….and that’s why Hissydalgo’s logic is POOR.

BUSTAJAY: “JR is looking to set Texas on FIRE this weekend. I think Vera is in for a long 12 rounds with JR being on his toes and cutting off the ring. The power of JR is amazing but the heart of Vera is undeniable.

WAR”

Thanks for the kind words, Bustajay! I really enjoy big fight week…it’s so much fun getting to know the fighters, seeing old friends and making new ones!!

i will have post fight interviews from the Alamodome tomorrow night!! Live updates throughout the entire card as well!!

DUMB software THINKS that it can CORRECT ME but actually messes UP MY already GREAT posts. MY point IS that I have run guys OFF the site with the FACTS and I will continue to keep them OFF by repeating the FACTS constantly. IF you don’t like reading the FACTS that I’m stating then go read a comic book.

I still can’t believe Salido didn’t make weight. What a way to take the pop out of a fight.

Posted February 28, 2014 5:37 pm

He might be thinking the extra weight will give him the advantage but I foresee this working against him…..Big disappointment

LMFAO!!! I have reached the PINNACLE!! When I first sat MY throne on this site many posters opposed ME when I started the FACT that SKILLS is more important than SIZE. Now fast forward to 2014 and guys are telling ME that of COURSE they are!!! AHHHHHHHH such a GREAT feeling!! And I will continue to repeat it to keep those SUCKERS that use to lambasting ME for stating that FACT from coming BACK…..ie. terror tim and E in Denver and Iron Beach etc…the list goes ON.

These types of postings are the best. I wait with baited breath for the new ones and skip others when you have these posted.

JR is looking to set Texas on FIRE this weekend. I think Vera is in for a long 12 rounds with JR being on his toes and cutting off the ring. The power of JR is amazing but the heart of Vera is undeniable.

WAR

The broken record scratches again. Snickers outsells Mars bars too. So what!

Chavez by way of the big ticket….salido???? He did state Lomachenko had fast hands so hes obviously trying 2 b the heavier bigger puncher? I’m sticking with Lomachenko…

“He a 28yr old & ELEVEN year professional fighter, turned pro in 2003, BEFORE Vera, Angulo, Ward, Abraham, Andre Dirrell, Stevenson… The TRUTH is that he’s “re-building” his image 168Lb image fighting middleweights. ”

First of all EZ E, you’re being too critical of Brian Vera, and you’re not giving Jr. enough credit for his skills and abilities. Brian fought a very good fight against Jr. in their first matchup and like you I thought he deserved the win. Let’s remember that Julio almost earned a shocking upset over Sergio Martinez, so it’s not like Jr. didn’t belong in the ring with Martinez or that Vera really ain’t that good. Vera has improved immensely since he’s been with Ronnie Shields and he’s more dedicated to his profession than ever. So to label Brian as a B-minus level middleweight is just totally unfair.

As for Julio’s age, well, everyone matures at different rates. Of course Jr. is in the process of rebuilding his image but I believe that we are going to see a much better fighter over the next couple of years and he has the potential to be one of the top boxers in the world in his weight class. It’s just a matter of time.

But this rematch isn’t to prove that Vera can’t do it again, it’s to prove that Julio can beat Vera convincingly, that he does have discipline and that he does take his profession seriously, and that he can win without cheating or controversy.

It’s a really important fight for both men. It’s going to be a helluva fight too as Brian is extremely confident and so is his trainer Ronnie Shields. This will be the best non-PPV event boxing fans have seen in a long time.

“salido knows he is getting put to sleep. he just said f it”

Maybe. Or maybe he’d rather forfeit his title than lose it in a fight. But what will you say if Salido wins?

Right on, outstanding interview Joseph! Julio said exactly what you and I discussed recently: Of course he is going to fight like his father. He watched him fight for years, he learned, and he now does the things his father did. Jr. is a very good inside fighter. But I also think he’s underrated in how well he sets his opponents up to be hit with power punches.
