CANTASO- My friend, I was thinking the same thing. I dont think “public enemy” is puerto rican. He trys too hard. Ive met and also have puerto rican friends and believe me, they dont talk like this guy. They are about latinos sticking together and helping one another, whether it be mexicanos, dominicanos, or cubanos, it makes no difference. I have a really good friend from work who is puerto rican and we hang out all the time and another that I go watch EVERY SINGLE boxing match for the last 5 years since we started hanging out. Never any animosity between us. Puerto ricans love to joke and share stories. This guy just talks mess.

Gracias mano! I believe this guy is not even Boricua. He’s to full of hate! He should visit the island and learn to relax and get along. Real Puerto ricans are generous and hospitable people.

We are all not ghetto newyorkricans like this Cheatin Chihuahuas De Messyhoe lowlife. You need to visit the island or meet people that actually came from the island. There’s a big difference between these ghetto newyorkricans and real Puerto Ricans.

“im tired ofthis “beat the champion convincingly” garbage. we need some integrity, consistency, and professionalism in boxing.” – Agree with BEARS. The convincing win argument implies the challenger is handicapping 2-3 points to the title holder. Each fight should be scored on its own merits. And fact is there are many fights that were not subjective opinions, they were fix jobs from corrupt judges.

Mexicans are so jealous of Puerto Rican fighters. Mexicans are always bragging that the Mexican fighters are better ,just because Salvador Sanchez almost killed Wifredo Gomez and beat the heck out of Juan Laporte and just because Antonio Margarito made Kermit Cintron quit and cry and made Miguel Cotto quit and just because Giovanni Segura and Orlando Salido came to the island and Humiliated Calderon and Juamma Lopez twice ..and that punching bag El Perro Angulo knock out Gabriel Rosado in two rounds ..Mexican’s are jealous of the Puerto Ricans .

i feel provod won more rounds against herrera. both guys on the espn crew agreed. thats my view as well. teddy has said some assenine things for sure in his life and gets it wrong a lot. but we all do sometimes. to me provodnikov beat both herrera and bradley. herrera went to get beat by alvarado who quit against prov

TARK’S EXECUTOR

Public Enemy
TARK is just butt sore that his so called pieces were rejected by ESB and his so called coaching techniques were laughed out of the gyms he frequented back in the 60s and 70s and is why he is down, on any major fighter that the genuine historians have lauded.
He does come out with some crazy drivel, but it’s because he hasn’t taken his medicine and MORK hasn’t filled him in lately, although he has scheduled a trip to Vegas shortly.

PLEASE do not judge Puertoricans for what a “newyorican” does or acts like. Meet a real one before making your decision.

Americans have a huge misconception about Puerto Ricans. They think we are like Fat Joe, or Rose Perez and those Newyorkricans. Puertoricans are a nice breed of people that are way more different than those ppl you see on the streets saying stuff like YO! WhAD UP DAWG? In order to understand what a Puertorican is you must visit the island or meet people that actually came from the island. There’s a difference between newyorkricans and Puerto Ricans (newyorkricans is how people from the island call those puerto ricans that were born and raised on the U.S. regardless of where they are) There even an increasing number of Headbangers and skaters on the island. (It’s rare to find that kind of puertoricans in the U.S.)

Not all of us listen to reggaeton and talk with that urban accent. We can speak both spanish and English properly. I just want to say that we are a people that has a little bit of white, indian and black blood in our veins and that’s what makes us so diverse.

I know for a fact that Garcia won his last fight against Herrera ,, but for a while there i was really nerves ,i was scare that Garcia would quit or take a knee like Miguel Cotto did and Calderon did against them Mexican fighters .

…”SRR was retired for 31 months”

No he wasn’t… In fact SRR fought fairly recently before his Jones loss.

Sugar Ray Leonard was off for THREE YEARS before he beat Marvin Hagler … and Floyd Mayweaather was off for almost 2 years before beating JMM, the guy who KO’d Pacquiao… and Vitali Klitschko was off for FOUR YEARS before beating the crap out of 30-1 Sam Peter, and took Peter’s Heavyweight Championship in his FIRST fight back, at the age of 37.

Ralph Jones’s record was 32-12-3 and he was coming off a 5-fight LOSING STREAK when he beat Robinson.

If Floyd fought somebody with a record like that he’d never hear the end of it.

TARK

Anonymous says.., “Tiger Jones was not just some bum and SRR was retired for 31 months after his debilitating struggle for the LH title and coming back aged 34 YEARS OLD in 1955!!!.”

All that doesn’t matter. Ralph Jones would have beaten Robinson at ANY time during his career. Ralph was too good and too slick on the inside for Robinson to ever handle. Robinson was a damned poor infighter and that’s why he only managed to beat Gene Fullmer one (1) of four (4) fights.

But Ralph Jones was much quicker and slicker than Fullmer.

And that’s why Robinson refused a rematch to Ralph Jones — who LOST FIVE (5) FIGHTS IN A ROW, just before beating the holy crap out of Robinson.

Bears all the judges had Herrera winning the fight. Teddy Atlas’ scorecard wasnt even close to reflecting what really happened in the ring. Teddy favors power punchers over boxers and thats why he had Prov ahead by such a wide margin, but he was still wrong.

your implying below that a challenger should expect to not get a fair shake with your “you have to really beat the champ talk” i just think thats air headed. i know the quote like we all do im just farfrom supporting it.

the second ref ringside mic’ed up to the ref in the ring is desperately needed. there should be an article on how poor reffing and judging is every week. hbo and showtime and espn and skysports should all be doing pieces on this. i think it HUGELY impacts the fight game and has already many times recently. mathyse vs garcia, lomachenko vs salido. personally i dont think its hard to officiate properly.

Just a matter of time for Garcia. He peaked for the Matthysse bout and even then had to excessively foul and hold to get the upset. Herrera’s win is a sign of the inevitable erosion. Do the Matthysse rematch with an idiot referee who doesn’t smoke crack and Matthysse KOs him.

“My reason for taking issue with TARK is he berated SRR without letting people know that Tiger Jones was not just some bum and SRR was retired for 31 months after his debilitating struggle for the LH title and coming back aged 34 YEARS OLD in 1955!!!” that is the typical Tark shell-game. clustering fighters from overlapping eras and accusing the likes of Hagler of ducking fighters who were either unknown or non-existent at the time of Hagler’s retirement. it’s not enough that Marvelous ended his ATG career v. Duran, Roldan, Hamsho, Hearns, Mugabi, and Leonard in consecutive fashion. according to Tark, Hagler should’ve deprived himself of these marquee matchup$ in favor of unknown, unproven, or non-existent McCallum, Nunn, Toney, and Roy Jr. Btw, Hagler went pro in 1973.

Finally, TARK reassess his view on Swift Garcia as he writes below

The Herrera fight was a big letdown—but it was still a win, and a tremendously exciting fight… Danny needed this fight to reassess his skills… He now knows he’s far from a complete fighter. Herrera gave him a lot of things to work on … Just like Cotto was a great fight for Floyd…

One week ago TARK was actually saying Mayweather was ducking Garcia, Lara and Pacquiao. I had to take issue with him regards Garcia and latterly SRR.

My reason for taking issue with TARK is he berated SRR without letting people know that Tiger Jones was not just some bum and SRR was retired for 31 months after his debilitating struggle for the LH title and coming back aged 34 YEARS OLD in 1955!!!

Garcia is young, vibrant, on the upswing with all the backing of GBP behind him, but he has already struggled on several occasions, with Judah – down the stretch, with Herrera by a boxer with a good jab and tricky tool box, and many people think resorting to playing tennis with Matthysse’s gonads etc.. Floyd has a masterful jab, a trickier tool box and is great down the stretch.

So, why would Floyd be ducking Garcia? Garcia is very much in Mayweather’s future plans!

TARK, do you still think Floyd is ducking Garcia?

This is the big reason that i sign up to be a Al Haymon fighter ,Mr. Haymon knows how to deal with the judges ,, Golden Boy Promotions knows better then to make me fight Herrera again, because they fear Al Haymon .

Posted March 19, 2014 12:23 pm 


TARK

This was a great fight.. a lot of drama all the way through.. Danny is becoming a bigger drawing card because of his great wins over Khan and Matthysse, and that’s why the fight pulled so many viewers.

It got about 3 times as many viewers as Glazkov-Adamek, which was a great heavyweight fight competing on the same night.

The Herrera fight was a big letdown—but it was still a win, and a tremendously exciting fight… Danny needed this fight to reassess his skills… He now knows he’s far from a complete fighter. Herrera gave him a lot of things to work on … Just like Cotto was a great fight for Floyd…

Slick jabbers wake you up… If you’re smart you smell the coffee.

I hope Danny goes to 147 now — I believe he’s starting to hurt himself boiling down to 140… The Judah fight was another fight that should have taught Danny a lot… When a slick southpaw takes your jab away it tells you, “Hey dumbo… your jab is crap!!! WORK on it.”

It’s actually Danny’s stance. He has a chief trainer who never boxed.

Posted March 19, 2014 8:22 am 


RONNIE

I’m a Boricua. I knew Herrera was going to be a tough test and Garcia’s defense isn’t all that good, especially against slick and elusive opponents. I had it 115-113 for Herrera but respect Garcia’s win but not the 116-112 scores. Garcia didn’t win TWICE as many rounds than Herrera. Watched it again with my uncle and the least Herrera deserved was a draw.

Posted March 19, 2014 8:01 am 


Love-the-Sport

I actually agree with Ray Ray … Herrera won rounds 1, 6, 9, and 12 and he won rounds 6, 9, and 12 huge by bloodying up Garcia and pounding him with big left hooks and right hands.

BUT HE DIDN’T DO ENOUGH TO WIN THE OTHER ROUNDS.

It is hard to see which other rounds you could definitively give to Herrera. The other rounds were very, very close. And 1-2 of those rounds were big rounds for Garcia.

So, I think a draw is the right score — however, a close win for Garcia is not crazy.

If Herrera didn’t do enough to definitively win a majority of the rounds, then he didn’t do enough to win the fight, and he didn’t do enough to take the championship from the champion.

Herrera was great in 4 rounds, competitive but not decisive in the other 8 rounds. He simply didn’t do enough.

Posted March 19, 2014 7:26 am 


Divo

RAY RAY, we have to stop this nonsense about he didn’t do enough to take the title from the champ.
If a man wins 7 rounds and loses 5, then he wins, regardless of who the champion is.
In American Football is there any consideration given to the reigning Super Bowl champions in a match? No. If the other team scores 1 point or more than them, then, they’re done. If Andy Murray wins more games than Rafael Nadal in the French Open Final, then he wins the set and if he does this more times than Nadal, eventually he will win the match and the title, regardless that Nadal has won something like 7 French Opens in a row.
Your logic is skewed. Why do you think we have the term he/she won by a hairs breadth? A winner is a winner and a loser is a loser. I couldn’t give tuppence if the champion is making his 20th defence. If he is out scored in more rounds than he wins, then he loses, period. Remember, a fight is scored round by round. Yes, sometimes we sometimes get the impression that the wrong man wins, when viewed overall, but if we break it down round by round we may be surprised that perhaps the right man indeed has won. This is why it is best to keep a running tally during the fight. The champion may win his 5 rounds more clearly, but if the challenger wins 7 rounds, even by a whisker, then he wins the rounds. No question.

I’ve watched this fight 3 times. At first I was a little influenced by the Showtime commentators, without scoring the fight myself. Then watched it again twice, with and without sound. There were a few very close rounds, one that I found it very hard to pick a winner so I called it even, something I try to avoid. I came up with 115-114 score for Garcia. I’m not Puerto Rican, I’m Black and an adamant admire of Mexican fighters dating back many years to Miguel Canto. I met him while in the Military. A great fighter and person. The judge that scored it a draw was closer to the truth than the other judges and the Showtime team, for real.

BOXING ART

If the fight would have been in Las Vegas, then you really needed NOT to have the Mexican and other Judge NOT be there since they scored the fight 116-112; the PR judge scored it 114-114. So what was more accurate? I had it 114-113 for Garcia but 114-114 is also okay since it was not a clear-cut points win. Herrera is a choppy, spasm-like, jittery, slippery fighter but he’s not a power puncher by no means — very light puncher like Paulie. That’s not anybody’s problem but his own. That’s why he fights like he does because he’s trying to compensate for his lack of power. Different strokes, but he didn’t do enough to convincingly take the belt from the champion who always gets the benefit of any rounds that are close or look like they did more — even if a little bit more.

If the Puerto Rican champion would have been robbed, all of you who are so outdone now cause of Herrera would have posted ALL KINDS OF RATIONALES, REASONS as to why it could have gone either way; the other didn’t do enough, etc. It would have been just dandy. It’s always selective when it comes to the Puerto Rican boxers. Damn if they lose and Damn if they win — albeit a close decision and using rounds that were hard to score either way. For your sakes, you will have the pleasure of having one of your homeboys be the beneficiary of a close decision soon. Just not this time.

Herrera was crouching the lowest seen nowadays, charging headward and did manage to headbutt Garcia by pushing up his head just at the nick of time. His jerky, spasmadic rhythm combined with him staying excessively low gave Herrera protection from Garcia’s left hook. However, Garcia did not take any round laying down; fought tooth and nail and deserves a teeth-clenching victory — however small.

I’m glad that so many viewer’s got to see Herrera beat the heck out of Garcia .

I just saw the Showtime rebroadcast.

I think Garcia is way over-rated. I think Herrera is way under-rated.

But I just didn’t see enough to give the fight to Herrera.

Herrera wins round 1, 6, 9, and 12 definitively. He bloodied up Garcia badly in round 6 and round 9. He pounded Garcia with big lefts and rights in round 12.

However, Herrera had a lot less activity in the other rounds and in some rounds he was simply inactive.

I think the fight was a draw — 114-114 — but I could see how the judges could go 8-4 (116-112) or 7-5 (115-113) for Garcia.

I think Herrera won big in 4 rounds — and should have won 1-2 of the other rounds for a draw or a very close decision win.

If you take a step back it is not a surprising decision given that the fight was in Puerto Rico. Probably should have been ruled a draw.

If only the home town fans had the self respect to pelt Garcia with garbage as he exited the arena..LMAO!..I guess the rican fans are just desperate to have somebody to root for even if its a fighter who wasn’t even born in the Island..Garcia didn’t impressed and most likely didn’t gain to many new fans in Puelto Lico..on the bright side Juanma lives to die (on the down side) another day..Lol!

I loved Herrera’s jab in this fight. I’m a total fan of brawlers but sometimes I really appreciate guys who can throw a great jab and knock favorites off of their high horse. I hated the decision but I had a feeling it was going to go that way from the crowds reaction to every punch Danny threw. I think judges should wear noise canceling head phones so they don’t get a false impression of what is really going on.

This goes to show you how much Garcia vs mathyse contributed in ppv sales to mayweather vs Canelo fight …

(lol) check out Messyhoe creaming all over himself over Garcia not losing . . . on the hometown scorecards. otherwise, it’s apparent that nobody who watched this bout believes Garcia won. similar to the attempted robbery of Salido v. Lopez except with Herrera they didn’t have to worry about a KO ruining “El Niñito Boricua’s”(?) homecoming. just popular sentiment. if only the hometown fans had the self-respect to pelt Garcia with garbage as he exited the arena(?!). if only Danny had the integrity of Chavez Jr. and granted Herrera an immediate rematch(?!). doesn’t anybody believe in the “rivalry” any more? . . . (lol).

Hey Public Enemy, is this your future “golden boy”?…hahahahaha…. he got lucky that one judge was blind and the other 2 were paid off by the Puerto rican officials. Herrera WON!

IF THIS is your thinking then you know nothing about boxing. Herrera beat Provodnikov at a lower weight. He is no cab driver, hes proven that, just rewind the tape and see Danny struggling against someone who he was suppose to walk over. 1.1 millions people saw how Herrera made Danny look like a fool…

Herrera was brought to PR to lose….sorry but if you in a fight with a Mexican you can’t count him out…even a Mexican carney from the local fair…..lmao..truth.

mex- He knows whats up. Of course the judge got it wrong. Herrera should have won.

When during the card did it peak at 1.1M? Was it during Wilder’s bout or Garcia’s?

So what if the Mexican judge had Danny up…he got it wrong just like you and Public enemy… and Danny walks in the 165+ he should be fighting Lara …every boxer weight drains..

Garcia need to give Herrera a rematch.

So if you are a champ all you have to do is show up and take punishment and still win????? .

WTF! Provodikov has a title but Herrera won the fight, so titles don’t matter in this case. I hate it when people disrespect hardworking guys like Herrera, I saw Danny winning 115-113 but by no means I consider Herrera a taxi cab driver, Herrera has my respects

You suckas should tell cotto to stop ducking Canelo so he can be on his resume….

Posted March 18, 2014 10:07 pm

The whole world know the Gift lost but you and Public enemy… Sore loser..being that Danny was the champ he should’ve defended his belts but instead he was raped by a Mexican taxi cab driver…bahahahah

Same thing I should say Garcia lost and Mauricio Swift Herrera won. Garcia should give something to Herrera because he don’t deserved all his pay off.

mex cab driver couldn’t do enough to take “gifts” title…that’s why the pedestrian cab driver lost. He spent the night crouching down hoping to get whacked behind the head and have points taken from danny. If not that, then he also spent time hugging…..he did through alot but….most of them were jabs…which in comparison with the “gift,” were nothing. Danny threw more power shots than the typical mexican did thereby generating more points. Besides, the wetback didn’t fight like a champion, didn’t look like a champion and did do anything to take the title like a real champion would. The cab driver is now relegated to being just the fat head he was born to be. Question: could it be true wetback envy boricuas because boricuas don’t need visas to get into the us and are not associated with illegal immigrants. Damn, I guess misery loves company, huh?

Why disrespect Herrera? If Herrera is a taxi cab driver then Provodnikov and Tim Bradley are 2 janitors,

Danny Gift Garcia is garbage..Mexican taxi cab driver beat him without a doubt.

Don’t kit yourself Enema..1.1mil tuned in and watched what really happened..you are in the very low minority here kid..Herrera won the championship/rounds without a doubt..

Herrera took Garcia to school, Garcia did not look like the same fighter as the one who beat the crap out Lucas, I think Garcia has reached his peak and is a fight or two from being just a contender.

Posted March 18, 2014 7:57 pm 


The Mad Scientist

So 1.1mil tuned in to watch Herrera outbox and outhustle Garcia on showtime this past Saturday night..that’s not bad at all..Gift, I mean Swift (Lol) is still a work in progress so Im sure he can learn from his last fight and come back a better fighter if guided right..we’ll see whats next next for Herrera, Im sure he’ll get another opportunity for his gamed effort..

Sweet Science II

@Eegar, Yeah, it was a robbery. Danny Garcia, his father, family, camp and boxing fans/analysts knew that it was a robbery.

Garcia underestimated Herrera, but Herrera came up with a perfect game plan into the ring. Garcia certainly learned from that fight more than his last 10 fights combined.

Posted March 18, 2014 7:14 pm 


Sweet Science II

Garcia did a very poor performance against Herrera. If he was not gifted, he would have lost his title. Herrera deserved to win, but he didn’t. Too bad for boxing because Purto Rico was doing a sweet, home cooking.

Anyway, I like to see Garcia vs. Broner or Maidana.

When will Mayweather be ready for the PACMAN?

Sweet Science 2 another robbery in boxing for the collection.

Strong ratings, but robbed decision. I don’t hate Garcia, but he truly lost that fight; Garcia was frustrated by the accurate, straight, constant-landing jabs of Herrera. Herrera was robbed.

Herrera beat Ruslan, fought Alvarado, Dallas, Mayfield. Herrera for his record and short career. Badass.
