… “Leapai lost by tko to Kevin johnson”

Fun fact… That was 2 years ago… Leapai just beat Boytsov 33-0.

Fun fact. After Leapai lost by tko to Kevin johnson, Johnson went on to lost 5 of his next 8 matches. I really forgot Johnson could in fact win a fight let alone by TKO.

I’ve always liked Paulie, he’s tough as old boots, he always come to fight, no matter who it is, he’s one brave dude, and he makes sense when he talks the fight game. I have a lot of respect for him and I see a glowing TV career ahead and not just in boxing, he has a good personality. He’s a likeable guy. what impressed me was Shawn Porter’s good reaction after the fight, he was honest and pretty humble, good on ya Shawn. It’s great to see two top class fighters showing respect for each other and acting like good guys. Shawn and Paulie are the very opposite of Fraud Duckweather and Broner the Loser who stink out the fight game with their me me me vile personalities. I’d love to see Shawn Porter beat the hell out of Broner and then finish Duckweather off for good.

Porter destroys Duckweather as well, that’s why Fraud will avoid him. Because Duckweather is a chicken.

Then the employer will just pass that cost down. Then Lunch will be 10-15 buck .LOL….

Floyd didn’t easily beat Oscar. It could’ve gone either way through 8 rounds. After then Oscar abandoned his jab, which turned the tide. The mystifying thing about Oscar that night is WTF did he stop jabbing? I believe it was a silent agreement between fighters. Oscar stopped jabbing and Floyd stopped countering with the right. They decided to let what happens happen with neither bothered by their opponents’ most hurtful punch.

“Mayweather beat De La Hoya super convincingly…” LoL. i won’t dignify that brain-fart with a response. suffice it to say that it was a Draw or a DLH “win”. besides, DLH outpunched Cheato by 150 punches and that didn’t sway your scorecard in favor of DLH?

your Pacquiao* citation was another sour brain-fart. or are you the only fight-fan oblivious to the weight-related challenges that DLH (NOT Napman*) had to deal with? in fact, Pacquiao* actually outweighed DLH on fight-night, i.e., “giving up tons of weight [definitely] wasn’t an issue” for the carefully-matched and protected hype-job Napuiao*.

I wouldn’t put Porter in with Floyd just yet. Let him marinate with some world class comp. Paulie’s a slickster but he just can’t hit hard enough to keep guys off him. Let Porter notch a couple wins against tougher comp then he’s ready. Porter didn’t get hype during his rise like Broner but he could end up the better titleist.

Mayweather beat De La Hoya super convincingly… On my card Floyd won every round but the 2nd… Floyd out-scored De La Hoya by nearly a 100 punches — and punched Oscar’s forward leaning face without mercy. If Floyd had 154 power he would have knocked Oscar out… Floyd must have been outweighed by 25 pounds.

Pacquiao contracted a fight with De La Hoya that was a much more favorable weight… You saw what happened to Oscar against an ATG caliber of fighter — when giving up tons of weight wasn’t an issue for the ATG (Pacman).

B-Hop and Pacman both put the kabosh on Fishnets.

Btw, i did pick DLH to defeat Floyd at 154lbs. although, i still don’t believe that Mayweather convincingly defeated the reigning-champion, neither fighter deserved the “winning” score for that fight but nobody’s surprised that the “American” fighter ultimately got the nod over the “Mexican” champion.

Posted April 21, 2014 4:24 pm

i hammered Mayweather for not accepting Tony’s challenge while favoring Mayweather to outclass Margarito.

who didn’t pick Margarito to hammer the presumably faded and ringworn but suspiciously resurgent Shane “PED” Mosley? You? Btw, Tony was on track to once again make Cotto bend the knee when Arum’s ringside doctor pulled the plug to prevent it.

i look forward to ANYbody KOing that promotional fraud Pacquiao* and correctly predicted Marquez would do so.

bottomline, it wasn’t necessary for Margarito or Rios to be “Mexican” to be considered favorites or live dogs v. notorious drug-cheat Mosley and a bigger stronger Rios. once again, it’s called “context” . . . look it up. it has nothing to do with being or favoring “Mexicans”.

te tumbo says.., “It’s not as if i picked Margarito, Marquez, Ortiz, Guerrero, or Canelo to defeat Mayweather”

Margacheato wasn’t matched with Mayweather, was he???

But you picked Margacheato to KO Mosley and KO Cotto in their rematch.. and you were looking forward to Cheato KOing Pacquiao as well

We know you’re a great Mayweather fan.

But you hate Pacquiao. You were licking your lips about a possible Rios KO of Pacquiao and picked Bradley to beat Pacquiao in their rematch.

I’m a Mayweather fan too… I never picked against Floyd in my life, just like you… I gave Canelo the closest shot at beating Floyd as an “8/5 underdog” — but I widened the odds when it became obvious Canelo’s team lined up very poor sparring for him … and even more when Canelo looked drained, burnt, and parched at the weigh-in.

Canelo made 152 for Floyd when he could have paid a massive fine and kept some weight on… He paid the fine rather than make 154 for Angulo … He learned a valuable lesson: winning isn’t everything—it’s the ONLY thing. Paying a massive fine is pppppffffft compared to winning.

Most fight as paulie say goes in one ear and put the other ear, and can’t relearn moves , or retain bad habits, the lower you fight the less you get hit,

porter has very fast legs too another good. As from outside to deliver leading punches as he does well. that leaping left hook was a case of fast thinking as paulie taught he was out of range. Even boxer paulie seen that punch coming. Porter was faster, porter the slugger and boxer boxing ability neutralize paulie boxing and then after his slugger ability won the fight

What change porter to Looking for the ko now, he has a unbeaten record 300 + fight Remember I said Kirkland and porter have sparred. Before? You can google this.

Guess Kirkland has a play on this . On day after Kirkland lost in his first fight to nishida, he wanted a ko for his pride. he visited LA where porter was preparing for a fight, and watched and ask porter father that he wanted to spar. So pop say yes come back tomorrow.
So he come in and Kirkland start calling porter punk etc trying to get porter mad as the more reckless you get, the easier it is for a ko.

Right of the bat Kirkland looking for a ko. And he start shoving porter around and called him some s/hit something bad both fighter starting fighting for real. Dad let it go on for training for 8 rounds.
Both were landing and porter was giving it right back. Back and forth, then both noses of Kirkland were bleeding and swelling up porter was taking the fight over, In the 8 porter combonation knock Kirkland on his butt for good. james got hurt, and his pride was more hurt as he out weigh him 20 something pounds.

Seen porter last interview and when ask is he ready? he he says now is bring on the fighter and I will knock they out. Interesting, as he also can box and reach from the outside, speed and power is his bread and butter. Go porter.

Thank you Largo.

@Coucou.., Porter is no Kirkland. His defense and chin are both much stronger. They’re both very good attackers and punchers, but when Kirkland takes a break to catch his wind he starts getting hit himself. Porter can slip punches well, jabs, and boxes well during those intervals.

He was able to outjab Malignaggi by a strong margin and stuff or slip his jabs well. Paulie has a great chin—and Shawn he knew he wasn’t going to get him out of there with one assault.

Porter fighting Floyd is a big difference than fighting Diaz who he drew with and maybe even lost to and beating Paulie. Floyd has more strength and won’t be pushed around and he will also see that lead left hook coming if Porter tries to throw it. Honestly that is really the first time I have seen that lead left land constantly.

Paulie got hit with EVERYTHING from Porter. Shawn is fast. He can punch. He can defend. You don’t need to see him develop any more because he’s a finished professional RIGHT NOW!!! … Porter is ready for Floyd. Bullsh!t on anybody else but Shawn Porter or Manny Pacquiao for Floyd’s next opponent at 147.

Shawn beat up Devon Alexander and massacred Malignaggi… He’s making huge strides fight to fight… Shawn is ready for Floyd right now … He’ll go after Floyd and show no fear. Floyd doesn’t take anybody out who’s not nearly as good a boxer or puncher as Porter.

Floyd certainly couldn’t take out easily KO’d Zab Judah… Couldn’t take out Cotto… Couldn’t take out Oscar… Couldn’t take out Mosley… Couldn’t take out Bladomir… Couldn’t take out Corley… Couldn’t take out Castillo… All guys who were stopped easily by others… So Floyd doesn’t mix that well and Porter can punch it up and brutalize him… Floyd hates attackers who have tons of skill inside and outside.

Porter should be matched with Floyd — if Floyd won’t fight Lara or Pacquiao next… 95% Floyd won’t fight one of them, so bring on Porter the Sorter… He’s what Floyd said Broner was, the future of the welterweight class.

Porter has speed, power, smarts, skills, and the killer instinct.. He doesn’t just box, he fights.. He was trying to bust Paulie’s head like a coconut. He has complete arsenal of punches and doesn’t take breaks.. Like Lara did in his last fight against Trout, Porter is taking unusually large strides fight to fight … and that’s not good news for Floyd.

Floyd was watching and said “Oh Oh. This isn’t good.”

As always on ESB, as soon as a guy wins a fight convincingly, he’s going to clean out the division and KO Floyd. It was Malignaggi, ffs. He’s 33, his legs are gone, and he had no business at 147 to begin with- no punch to keep people off him. This was an inevitability. Surprised it didn’t happen sooner. Malginaggi: no power. Alexander: no power. What happens when Porter gets hit back by a real WW with power is when you’ll know how good he is.

I don’t really consider Lara that good of a boxer. He is a counter puncher but he is not good at taking the lead. Canelo could maybe force him to lead. Canelo can actually lead and counter pretty good. And like you said Lara is so inconsistent. I will take Canelo by decision or late stoppage. After what I saw what Angulo did to Lara, I think Canelo can do much better.

Peej- I’m not so sure Canelo beating Lara is a given. He should be the favorite only because Lara is not consistent, but in his best day Canelo will have a ton of problems getting to him, Lara hits hard enough to keep him honest, and we saw what a good boxer can do against Alvarez.

GGG is 160 about to fight at 168. Bradley doesn’t have the power to bother Floyd. And if Bradley fought Floyd the same way he fought Pac, Floyd would run a clinic on him. Martinez is overrated and fights at 160. Plus he may be losing to soon to Cotto.

Now you know what I meant when I said Shawn porter is going to be on the finals as top dog? He has the requirements a slugger/ boxer, that super fast, has ko power, can box, has a terrific jab. Has a 1-5 punch attack, and last night he show he can lead hook and right hand lead hook for 4 feet away fast , boxer paulie seen the punch coming and could not get put of its way. Porter was faster than paulie. 1/2 boxer porter nullified paulie boxing and 1/2 slugger porter finished paulie when needed.

Trust me Floyd will not touch a fast slugger/ boxer, porter, Bradley, PAC, Lara,GGG, Martinez? And porter with that long ko reach, Because it nullified his boxing skill somewhat, and add speed to he will get hit. Your talking about a split decision fight. No he wants to fighter slugger that don’t build points, of he survive the ko ( he faster) he win by easy U.D. And look untouchable.

Gentlemen, I must apologize to Paulie Malignaggi. I was way to harsh and him and should not have degraded him so much. Yes his personality is annoying, but he’s a fighter, and fought some of the best and did the best that he could do. I must respect him and will no longer criticize him again. I hope he makes a good decision for himself about retiring, and I know he will continue to do a great job commentating. He reached a high level in boxing and he never ducked anyone. Maybe fame changes some people, and maybe it did him a little. His talking was very irritating to me, but he always gave it his all. I wish him the best, and will keep him and his family in my prayers.

Paulie and Porter should have been the main event. I struggled to stay awake for the first fight and main event.
