“Marquez and Nacho whined like little girls when the fight was over.”

This is true, moonshineman. I was embarrassed for Nacho. I think he really made a spectacle of himself in the post-fight presser.

Joeseph, I’m just now listening to the show. It’s a good one as always. What a great job by T. Johnson he fought a great fight for the most part. He told you he wasn’t going down no matter what, and he was right. However, like you mentioned he should have taken a knee in the final round. In any case, thanks for mentioning my post, lol….

Gary in the Bronx, knocking Marquez back 13 feet means little. Marquez doesn’t even wilt after being knocked down three times in one round.

Truth is, Bradley beat Marquez by the hair of his teeth. It was a very close fight. Juan was more accurate and effective, Tim threw more and landed more.

I think Bradley beat Marquez by a wide Margin. Bradley almost knocked Marquez down in the last round. Marquez and Nacho whined like little girls when the fight was over.

Boxtradamus with all due respect, there is no way JMM even came close to winning vs Bradley. From the end back to the start Bradley answered every wide shot the 40 year old offered. Had Tim stepped forward in the closing seconds of round 12 instead of prematurely raising his gloves in the air he would have knocked Juan out of the ring. The fireworks throughout the rounds were all Bradley’s doing. He went in and raided JMM time and time again whenever he wanted. Tim showed much more foot activity, head movement defense and athletic courage than Floyd, when he dominated vs JMM. Granted, a 33 year old Marquez with youthful springs may have been able to actually land tighter shots but then again, Tim has a stellar IQ to figure out that type of forward fighting too. I personally believe the punch stats (power shot count) was nowhere near being accurate. The crowd was very much a pro-JMM group and the people doing punch stat keys missed Bradley landing at least 35 combination shots but gifted JMM 35 phantoms. If you have time to watch the fight again please let us know how you score it per round. I watched it again last night – There’s not even a knick on Tim at the end – the 12th round is cherry for Tim….the look on Juan’s face is priceless after being knocked back 13 feet and nearly falling off his skateboard. It’s a classic “no clench” match. Feldman as a judge is blind. Another 2009 case is when Isaac Hlatshwayo vs. Delvin Rodriguez (their 2nd meeting) match: Feldman scored the fight for Delvin. Isaac turned in the winning performance and it’s completely puzzling how Feldman saw D-Rod winning more than 5 rounds of 12. Delvin had a loose shell from the start while Isaac penetrated and possibly damaged D-Rod. And c’mon man, there is no way Paulie even came remotely close to losing the Cano fight. Cano even getting a draw in that match would have been outside of reality.

“Power shots are overall more effective than Jabs.”

Truly a statement made by an ignoramus.

Boxtradamus: “Feldman was CORRECT in scoring Marquez over Bradley. Power shots are overall more effective than Jabs. YOU and the other 2 Judges had it wrong.”

Boxtra, not that crap again!! You can’t make an absolute statement when referring to a subjective process like scoring prizefight.

It just doesn’t cover so many different scenarios in boxing. A fight is scored on a round by round basis. So many influential and different factors to consider.

The primary emphasis when scoring a fight is placed on clean, effective, and consequential punching.

A power shot means nothing if it doesn’t find its mark.

no way marquez outscored bradley. he could have if he had thrown more punches and been a little bit more aggressive.

Bradley has got right into Pacs head, I believe Bradley will win and win convincingly with a knockdown along the way.
Posted April 7, 2014 5:31 am

Bradley has gotten into Pacquiao’s head. Bradley has motivated Pacquiao to destroy Bradley. Bradley doesn’t have the power or the skills to win this fight.

Anonymous, you’re just joking right? God doesn’t help fighters win or lose fights anymore than he helps it to rain–or not–in California.

Ronnie really didn’t understand or answer the question regarding the judging conundrum. James really didn’t understand or answer the question regarding
Freddie Roach’s ability to built a fighter from the ground up. Other than that, it was a great show as usual Joseph.

James Gogue’s segment begins at the 78 minute mark. He gives a brilliant in-depth analysis of the upcoming Pacquiao/Bradley rematch!!

Great job, Gogue!!

Tim wants Pac to come right after him, just like Marquez had him doing when he put his lights out and Pac has fell for the trap by the looks of things.

Thanks for your comments and insight, Gary. It’s always appreciated, my friend!!

Judges for the fight are Glenn Trowbridge of Nevada, Michael Pernick of Florida and John Keane of England.

I will be publishing an article this week on The Saga of boxing that previews possible trends for each judge by examining how they each scored each fight.

I will text you when that’s published brother.

Thanks again for listening, brother!!

Joseph I really liked the depth of discussion concerning the mystery of how Judges are planning to perform their tasks. Glenn Feldman has baffled me time and time again by scoring the exact opposite way the fans, announcers and experts (writers) witness 12 round events. He is the male version of CJ Ross and I pray he is nowhere near this next weekend’s boxing action. Feldman scored JMM beating Bradley and practically had Cano shutting out Paulie (118-109??? What?). These are just two bouts of the nearly 20 that he has scored totally wrong and just one of many judges creating incomprehensible score cards. Fight teams and fans should be informed as to how the judges have decided to view the action right after the weigh-in so the trainers can select the between-round tactics correctly and the fans know how much beer to buy. There is a huge difference between scoring a round on the body of work and sucess verses scoring a round in three one minute segments.

It’s really a lie because he added that the mat was softer so his foot was slipping. The fight was at MGM. But 4 month earlier Bradley won at MGM can remember his name by tko. It’s the same mat.
Plus anybody if Tim complain to his corner would have let him borrow there stock, also timmwas show boating and doing the shuffle a lot all night, that wasted hurtful wasteful movements .you don’t do this hurt.
Pluss he said both foot were hurt. What the odds of both foot. Pluss he never complain or touch his ankle all night. the truth is PAC was fast so he felt slower as he blame the slow mat.

Tark, he trained with no socks leading into the bout…made no difference.

If Bradley don’t wear sock in training his shoes must smell like dung after weeksand weeks of sweating, holly molly What died in the locker. or what heck is that smell bradley?

Posted April 7, 2014 12:21 am 


TARK

Not wearing socks definitely played a part in how poorly Bradley fought.. His shoes didn’t fit right without his socks.. That’s a crime of major proportions.. You don’t change things up for the most important fight of your life.

A fight of this magnatude you go over everything in detail over and over…

Socks? check… 3 mouthpieces? check… Our best fighting cup??? check… The right shoes? check… The right trunks? check… Many more hand wraps and more tape than we’ll ever need? check… Super glue? check… 2 cutman kits fully stocked? check… 8 bottles of purified water? check… 2 pairs of regulation gloves, just in case? check… Vaseline? check… Ice packs? check… Freshly calibrated accurate scale? check… Pre fight energy snacks? check… Scorecard spy and telecast watcher? check… Hand wrapping observer? check.

….well, he’s gonna get some more cash, but at what cost??

Posted April 6, 2014 10:23 pm 


Luke

Obviously, Cunningham has a lotta great skill left to go with that heart…but man, realistically, where does he go from here?? He doesn’t want careful matchmaking, he wants cash and notoriety and it’s HIGHLY doubtful he’s gonna get it. Gogue…going forward, how do you handle a guy like Steve?

That’s all I got for you brother.

Posted April 6, 2014 10:22 pm 


Luke

Maybe you can ask James about the earlier discourse in regard to USS Steve. When is a fighter’s balls and heart to big for his well being? As a trainer, when does James Gogue have to tell a guy, “that’s a wrap, too much risk and too low the chances of any real reward.”

Posted April 6, 2014 10:17 pm 


Luke

I always enjoy James…let me think on it for a second…always enjoy Gogue’s 80’s references and fighters from that era!

Posted April 6, 2014 10:13 pm 


Hidalg0

Hey Joseph, it would be nice to hear Gogue’s opinion on the socks issue.

Posted April 6, 2014 10:13 pm 


Hidalg0

Personally, I think Bradley forgot to bring his socks for his first fight with Pacquiao and that’s why he ended up fighting without them–not because he chose to.

Posted April 6, 2014 10:11 pm

Ronnie is sooo right…Steve is too tough for his own good, and, too small for the heavyweight division. Yes, they do have to match him carefully as Ronnie says, but Steve don’t want careful match making-he wants it all!! And, that is why this fan thinks it’s time for him to bow out! Maybe I’m too much of a pacifist??
