Carrot Top aka Cinnabum is about to get juiced by Cuban Lara.. Canelo will continue his slide into Journeyman status… Mayweather outted him in front of Milllions as just another south of the Border Head First Plodding Hype Job… another low skilled Bobble Head..

Satan is Mexican – Get your ethnicities and Cultures correct my friend.. Canelo aka Mexicans aren’t Latinos they’re Hispanics.. Latinos are from the Caribean Islands like Puerto Ricans, Cubans and Dominicans.. Latinos have a mix of European, Native Island Indians and Africans… While Hispanics are a mix of European and Central American Indians… Hispanics traditionally would get offended if referred to as Latinos because they didn’t want anyone thinking they had any African mix in their blood line.. aka Racist Bastardos…

TARK Yes, that’s basically what I mean. If they are elite in many other sports, then why not boxing? Okay, many years ago, let’s say up until 1950, they were allowed to fight professionally but were considered not too good in general, more known for their awkward styles and toughness. Schmeling, Cerdan, Turpin, Mills, Marcel Thil, Wilde.. kept Euro on the boxing map. During the cold war their amateur programs were priorities, the EXTENSIVE amateur experiences was basically equal to that of professionals. Then again, years ago (my Ring Mag collection of 1930-50s as reference) Mexican, Puerto Ricans, Filipinos fighters were generally used as “cannon fodder” for local favorites or the more popular fighters, on the East & West coast, Texas, Florida… areas. My, my, have things changed.

World Champs from Eastern Europe: Heavyweight… Cruiserweight… Light Heavyweight… Middleweight… and until yesterday, Super Welterweight.

Not bad for a slice of the planet where pro boxing didn’t exist 25 years ago.

That’s a short time… W. Klitschko has been a pro boxer for 18 years — and there are few venues in their own countries, so they have to travel constantly.

SATAN (aint) MEXICAN Try to control your IGNORANCE. It’s not that the Euro fighters are taking over. It’s that many weren’t allowed to enter the pro ranks due to Communism for decades. It took a while for them to adjust to pro style and proper trainers and open more gyms to fill the need. Haven’t you noticed how many of them cross the Atlantic to LEARN in WESTERN gyms and SEEK WESTERN trainers? They AREN’T taking over, it’s LEVELING out, which is good for boxing. In the 8-10 weight class era, most ALL world champs were North Americans, with few from Cuba, Mexico and Puerto Rico & an occasional Oriental. Europe is now turning out pro fighters at an alarming rate and it’s only natural that their share of championships will be won. Later!

Lara vs Canelo is more hype than true grit. There’s too much emphasis on latino fighters. Of course mexicans hold titles but it’s only because there’s sht loads of em, mostly losers. Caliber Ricans are extinct except for Cotto who anit gonna be around too long, believe me. With the loss of Martinez South America is no where. Cubans fall off the radar in a heartbeat. Rigo is a bore. the abc latino based orgs favor their own while Eastern fighters are forced to mow down the most feared fighters to be considered. European fighters are the force. They’ve taken over the higher weights and will take over the lower weights if the latino stop conspiring and give them their due breaks. Word!

TARK IS A HYPOCRITE says.., “last year you wrote: Pacquiao could have had a Floyd fight by agreeing to reasonable terms, and he didn’t have a chance anyway”

That’s BS… I never wrote that… Some FAKE TARK might have written that.. I always said Pacquiao wanted to fight Floyd and Floyd didn’t want the fight.
That’s the actual truth… Floyd is Chickenshlt… He’ll duck anyone with a decent chance to beat him to protect his “O”

SOME FAKE TARK??? LMAO!!! WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO KID???

TARK WROTE :

TARK

Boxer…, Floyd fought everyone who was available.. Tszyu was on the self with injuries for 2 years, and then lost to Hatton … Williams lost to Carlos Quintana at a point that fight could have been made … Cheato never beat anyone, couldn’t even beat Williams when he was probably cheating. Plus he only beat Cotto by cheating—the rematch and Mosley fight proved it … Floyd challenged Mosley and De La Hoya when they were both 154-pound champions and Floyd was a Lightweight. They wouldn’t fight Floyd … Pacquiao could have had a Floyd fight by agreeing to reasonable terms, and he didn’t have a chance anyway…
This is a FAR cry from Oscar De La Hoya fighting Yory Boy Campas instead of unifying the title with fellow 154lb Champion Winky Wright..
A FAR cry from Ray Leonard refusing to fight Michael Nunn, Mike McCallum, or Julian Jackson—when they were the 3 Middleweight Champions of the World who each won pieces of the title stripped from Leonard… Leonard WAS fighting as a middleweight—but Leonard went down to 154 to avoid these guys.. He fought Terry Norris—who had been crushed by Jackson.
A FAR cry from Tommy Hearns, who was beaten by Iran Barkley twice, the 1st time when Tommy was 29 years old… Hearns wouldn’t DREAM of fighting Nigel Benn… James Toney… Sumbu Kalambay… Michael Nunn… or Reggie Johnson. They whipped Barkley with ease, but Hearns or Steward wouldn’t consider a discussion about fighting them.
Ducking is in the eye of the beholder. You have to understand who was worthy … who was trying to make worthy fights … and who wasn’t.

Right!!! Floyd is really scared of Pacquiao… In his last 3 fights Pac has looked massively beatable — especially by a guy Floyd beat every minute of every round after a 2-year layoff.
Pacman had a Floyd fight in the palm of his hand twice — and down he goes to ignominious defeat… Now if Pac can only manage to beat Rios, a raw swinger coming off a loss, Floyd might reconsider and fight him.
How many chances does Floyd need to give these losers?

Angel Heredia was there when the midget won the controversial 3rd fight. He is the same guy who supplied manny’s strength n conditioning coach with peds from the fight vs Diaz and onwards. It was also Manny who refused more stringent drug tests vs JMM in the 4th fight. Manny remains the only fighter to refuse better drug tests in boxing even for a $40M payday.

@LIONKING Hola bro, Que pasando! When Lara was coming up I thought he’d eventually take over the 154Lb class, not no more. Before last week I was already believing that Cotto could beat him, now I’m convinced. I’m taking Canelo over him too. I’m not a Canelo fan but I think he’s been over criticized in the Angulo fight. Canelo was beating him with come hellacious shots from the opening bell. took his time and looked super calm, professionally bidding his time. It had to be stopped. He shook off the rust and will be even better prepared. Peace to you.

I don’t consider Lara to be a slick boxer. And yes you are right about Angulo. But if he struggled to make weight that is on them. As for the vanes fight yeah he started turning the ride but it was late in the fight and there was still a couple rounds left. And Vanes isn’t all that to me. He wasted his career away sitting on the number 1 spot for a title. I just think Canelo is gonna handle Lara and stop him. He had a great amateur career but his pro career is so so. Canelo has had a much better pro career Thant Lara

Posted June 14, 2014 2:36 pm 


Da Truth Hurts

Canelo aka Cinnabum is the most Recent Chihuahua PPV flop.. he can’t make a successfull PPV event unless he has an Elite fighter on the Card like Floyd, Cotto or Paquiao.. His last PPV event was so bad he was being pelted with Bottles by the Mexican Fans at the Arena.. He had to have the ref step in and stop the fight just when Angulo was coming on.. Canelo couldn’t stop a broken, old shot Angulo while Cuban Lara Stopped Angulo dead in his tracks and made him cry uncle quitting like Delahoya vs tiny Paquiao… He’s been avoiding Cuban Lara for almost 2 years but with his most recent fights being so crappy like his 12 round humiliation at the hands of smaller Mayweather he was forced to stop running from Lara and make the fight.. His Fans had enough.. He only made a little over 1.3 Mill in his last fight.. that’s less then Sergio made vs Cotto who made over $10Million… Once Cuban Lara beats him silly he’ll join the Tijuana Trash Heap of failed Hype Jobs like Angulo, Abner Mares, Arreola the Mexican Walrus, Ortiz the Mexican Crybaby, Dumb Dumb Rios the Mexican Punching Bag, Chavez Cheato Jr and MargaCheato the Master of Plaster.. etc etc

DaTruth Hurts,
I’m glad you mentioned that as I had read about head flattening, practice of intentionally changing the shape of the human skull, once common in some cultures. And it was to change the shape of the forehead and not the back of the head (as Canelo has) and it left me wondering how Canelo arrived at that interesting shape. Thanks.

Posted June 13, 2014 8:09 pm 


CurlyQ.Howard

In the Canelo vs Mayweather fight, I used the shape of the fighters skull to choose the winner. Floyd’s head looked as if it had a more perfect shape and likely a bigger brain, so I chose Floyd to win. For Canelo vs Lara, I’ll choose Lara as his head has the more perfect shape and likely a bigger brain. No. I’m not to the point where I’ll actually wager money based on this method of choosing a fight’s winner, but if it continues to work, who knows. Although on second thought, I doubt that I’ll ever find a fighter whose head isn’t more perfectly shaped than Canelo’s.

“Manny* destroys him in fight number 1 except for the judge admiting he didn’t know how to score the 3, yes 3 knockdown round” or the ref failing to deduct a point from Manny* for hitting Marquez after he was down. No matter. NObody has dared identify the 5 rounds Manny* needed to win to eke out a legitimate scorecard “W”. “Manny* spanked Marquez in the second fight” that Filipino analysts Ronnie Nathanielz, Ricah Trinidad, Ed Picson, and fighter Nonito Donaire scored for Marquez? after aNOTHER 4-years of avoidance by Manny*, Marquez invited Pacquiao* into his office, closed the door, and took him to school with sharp-jabs, lead-rights, mid- and long-range uppercuts and counter-versions of the same punches in every round of their fight. i had predicted a 10th-round KO, which seemed possible if Marquez had only placed his foot on the pedal but his plan was to convincingly win on the scorecards, which he did despite the “official” result. “Marquez then got desperate” and publicly-declared his intention to take the verdict out of the judge’s hands and go for the KO, which he executed in all-time-legendary and rivalry-ending fashion. nobody will ever be able to think of Pacquiao* without recalling the legacy-defining image of him planted face-down and snoring into the ring canvas. IF Pacquiao* really wanted a 5th matchup, he wouldn’t be sabotaging negotiations by 1) refusing to face Marquez in Mexico and 2) insisting on dictating the purse-split. obviously, the Arizaless Manny* knows he can’t possibly score the KO or earn the scorecard “W” v. a 40-something Marquez without complete control of all the conditions that favor him. including a panel of Arum-approved judges, which might be more difficult to control on Marquez’s home-turf.

Canelo’s lack of foot speed is going to hurt him here. Lara will be clicking on ALL cylinders and Canelo will be hitting a bunch of AIR. The crowd will still HOORAY to it though and that will give the Judges an excuse to give Canelo rounds that he will LOSE. Lara MAY have to drop Canelo a couple of times. Either way Lara WINS this by SCHOOL HOUSE decision.

Posted June 13, 2014 5:19 pm

Lara is very determined to be the BEST at 154 other than Mayweather. He seeked out this Fight and he will not turn in a lackluster performance. Just like the San Antonio Spurs wanted the heat and just like Tarver wanted Roy Jones Jr…..He’s CHOMPING at the BIT to take Canelo to SCHOOL. Lara is the more SKILLED Boxer that leaves LUCK and ROBBERY as the only options for Canelo. Lara has been ROBBED before SO Canelo has a shot. They tried to ROB Mayweather for Canelo but Canelo couldn’t hold UP his end of the bargain and at least WIN 3 rds.

Live, Angulo did NOT look or perform physically better v. Lara. in fact, he looked HORRIBLE and depleted with the fluidity of a statue but still had little difficulty with walking Lara down to Drop him twice. only the sudden hematoma compelled Angulo to concede. othewise, Lara had one maybe two more rounds left in him before taking a knee or simply staying down. ultimately, Lara can’t compel the likes of Molina, Williams, Vanes, Angulo, or Canelo respect his space. he’s a sharp and perhaps even stinging puncher but he can’t even stop B-level fighters from crowding him. he’s gonna be sh*t out of luck v. a young and strong fighter like Canelo who won’t be satisifed with a decision. in fact, a scorecard verdict is Lara’s best chance to claim the “W” and Canelo should NOT trust the scorecards to give him the nod. he’s still Mexican. he needs to score the KO or risk being robbed by the scorecards.

LIONKING Hola Mano!! I don’t believe Cotto won the title to give it up. From what I’ve heard from two friends close to the Cotto camp, one of which is directly involved with Cotto Promotions, Miguel will stay at 160Lbs. This is boxing and things can change but this is where Cotto stands at the present. Both say at the top of the list are Floyd and then Canelo with an optional defense before if need be.

I don’t know how many Canelo vs Angulo ppv buys totaled but this fight is not really ppv worthy, like other have already commented. That being said, I’m going with Canelo in this one. Although Canelo has no big wins aside from Trout, Lara can’t boast any better. Lara has had too many close calls against lesser opposition. Canelo will remain focused, perform in a workman-like manner and win by UD. The prospects of a Cotto vs Canelo fight are at stake here. If it happens, hopefully it takes place later this year or early the next. Time is on Canelo’s side. Cotto market value skyrocketed with his linear Middle title win and will probably be the A-side if they should meet according to most fans and experts like Dan Rafeal, Casey, Bill Fitch… although some Canelo fans will/might find that hard to swallow. Surely Canelo vs Lara ppv is not generating as much interest, although it’s under card is far better that last Saturday’s. Either way, when it’s over, I believe Canelo’s hand will be raised victory. Peace to all!

Lara struggled against Angulo, Vanes he got a draw with, Molina he got a draw with, looked good against Trout but Trout has no clue how to lead and that is what he had to do in that fight. And against Williams, yeah he should of won but its not like he didn’t take his lumps in that fight. It wasn’t a white wash by any means though he should of still gotten the nod. Lara is nothing special in my opinion.

Posted June 13, 2014 2:03 am

Pac did not spank Marquez in the 3rd fight. Marquez clearly won that fight and he should of beat him by more of a margin than the first 2 fights. And saying he spanked him in the first fight and you are blaming a judge that didn’t take 1 point away for the 3rd knockdown. So you are complaining about a point. That is not a spanking. I do think Pac won the first 2 and clearly lost the last 2 fights. The only spanking was the KO. The 3rd fight was no spanking but it was a clearer win than the first 2 fights. But the judges gave it to Pac in hopes of Arum trying to make the Floyd vs Pac fight which he never wanted to make in the first place.

Mansworld, must you use such filthy language my friend. Rios was a world champion that beat a lot of guys. Manny was just too good. Marquez, well we all know his story. Manny destroys him in fight number 1 except for the judge admiting he didn’t know how to score the 3, yes 3 knockdown round. Manny spanked Marquez in the second fight and spanked him in the 3rd. Ped Man Marquez then got desperate and the Hereida entrance and history is there for all to see. He sure had lots of acne in his last fight, and you need to get your facts straight, it’s Marquez that wants no part of a 5th fight. Hmm…wonder why? VADA testing he wants no part of. And of course Mayweather has been fearing for his life. By the way, did you read Thomas Hauser (Respected author) article the Ped Mess? Looks like Mayweather failed 3 tests and covered them up. Regardless, mayweather has been running and running and running away from Manny Pacquiao, and the world knows it. The truth is the truth. Manny is the only 8 division boxing champion and voted the fighter of the decade in Mayweather’s decade. Manny is the best!

Better of boxing if Alvarez wins this fight and wins big with a KO and then fights Cotto.

Cotto vs. Alvarez would set up to be a huge event for the sport.

Problem is that Lara is a live threat to beat Alvarez. Lara is better, stronger, faster, and smarter than Austin Trout and Austin Trout gave Alvarez a very tough fight.

I think Alvarez needs to focus more on roadwork and conditioning and nutrition and come in to these fights less drained.

If Alvarez gets drained and winded in this fight — we could see a historic upset. Lara can hit hard.

As exciting as that would be — it would be terrible for boxing overall.

mansworld my friend, after having watched the Trout Canelo fight, I’m even more convinced that Lara will have Canelo reaching and missing a lot. Trout IMO actually beat Canelo, and Lara is a much more sophisticated fighter than Trout. This man is hungry for a victory, and his extensive amateur pedigree and his ability to get into Canelo’s head already will make for a technical beating at the hands of Lara. Canelo is not the same fighter when fighting a southpaw. This will make a huge difference. Watch the fight, and you’ll see Canelo get overwhelmed if he can’t make adjustments like he did against Mayweather. And as far as Manny Pacquiao goes, he is today’s top pound for pound fighter in the world. He’s also a basketball coach, congressman, model, actor, singer and a million other things. Canelo is fortunate not to have fought the legendary Manny Pacquiao because his night would have been short. Manny has all the tools to beat everyone from 140-168. Speed, power, athleticism and intelligence. Bradley found that out as well as Rios. Marquez obviously doesn’t want any part of Manny and neither does Mayweather. Manny Pacquiao puts fear in fighters. Marquez knows he can’t pas those VADA tests with his good friend Hereida so it’s no surprise he does not want a fight with Manny Pacquiao. Manny Pacquiao is the greatest pure fighter of all time. He’s done it all. He’s beaten them all and he’s never avoided anyone. He is the most beloved fighter in boxing history. He’s enjoying life conquering a variety of endeavors. This is a special man that is always smiling. I just watched Manny Pacquiao’s Show me Da Manny and WAPAKMAN. This man can act. Manny is the best

Lara has a certain Chad Dawson quality at times he does not seem engaged for the full 3 mins at times.. Canelo fights like a hungrier more violent fighter and I think that he will be able to take what Lara throws..

I was looking for the words and you nailed it with your comment about Lara being to laid back. I honestly believe that Lara is more skilled but there was something lacking… If Canelo’s smart, he’ll be agressive from round 1 and try to finish Lara by the 6th…9th at the very latest.

Hecdog Lara is going to get his ass kicked, Canelo is a beast he just got schooled by Floyd like everyone else. Still he is a wrecking ball. By the way FCK Manny

Lara should be able to pick Canelo apart. He is a master boxer with beautiful movement and angles plus his southpaw stance should befuddle Canelo all night. Canelo is the heavier puncher so Lara has to always be alert. Canelo has never fought a fighter like Lara, and if he decides to try and outbox Lara, he’ll be in trouble for all 12 rounds. Canelos strategy should be to pressure Lara, go to the body and physically man handle him. If Canelo tries to do what he did against Floyd, he’ll be in trouble. Lara has been dropped by Angulo, but that was a learning experience for him, and he did get up and pummel Angulo. The question for both is their stamina. If Lara can handle Canelo’s power, he wins easily. I do hope it’s a fair decision if it goes to one and Canelo’s marketability and cash cow status doesn’t earn him one of those famous questionable decisions. Don’t be surprised if Canelo gets dropped. If all is fair and no funny business goes on, I’ll go with Lara to win a majority decision.

Canelo has been a PPV dud, he barely made 1.4 Mill in his last PPV event..

Drained Canelo that got schooled by Mayweather loses this by wide UD

The full strength Canelo who beat Angulo stands a good chance of pulling out the victory

He had so much more energy in that fight

It’s a 60/40 fight in Lara’s favor IMO. 70/30 is also reasonable

Canelo can do it but he’s going to have to fight the fight of his life to pull it off

BoxtAnus you once again predicted both fighters will win so you can brag afterwards. Nobody steals your handle dork.

Unhappy this is PPV. It’s a solid HBO card but not PPV except among the Mexican fans. Had they put Matthysse on the undercard we’d have bought though.

Posted June 12, 2014 3:29 pm 


stuck in a moment

Did they really have to go ppv with this. And do you euros have any idea how popular soccer is in America. Its way more popular then boxing. It has become a normal popular sport here. All the kids play it and its on Tv all the time. Espn!

what i meant to say is lara shoud take a good around him and realise that a lot of non americans people have failed to realise the same american he has thrived for,,lack of shoes? C,mon man there are alot cubans who had a pair shoes when lara was glowing up,,, even in state there is alot people who cant afford a decent meal,,

Posted June 12, 2014 11:30 am 


mikke

nice words from lara about american dream,but he has to take look him and realise there is alot americans and non americans people who realise the same dream because of prejudice,,castro is worshiped in other continents esp africa for fighting against poverty,heathy care and injustice ie in southern africa,,the same dictator is an angel other people,,should concetrate in his boxing not politics,

LOL, Cinnabum looks like a Red headed Orangutang.. He’s about to be turned into another Head first plodding Angulo by the Cuban Lara.

Geale on points, then all Aussie show down v Solomon , geale once again 2 time champ, up there with fenech I have a soft spot for Aussies , small population tough lads

with a lot of fans clamoring for a Cotto vs. Alvarez bout it will be hard for Lara to win a decision. Cotto vs. Alvarez will make a lot of money. I hear nobody clamoring for Lara vs. anybody. I like Canelo by TKO anyway.

That was obviously supposed to be “couldn’t ”

Because Lucas Neil runs like old people fcuk

Chile may win the group
Very Agressive all out attacking football
Lucas Neil would have had a cardiac or sent off as he pulled down a player because he could keep up

Canelo at 155 means no more at 154 or 152 which is a stupid weight. But maybe if he wins well and gets the cotto fight it will be great for him and his future. His name next to mannys is rediculous as manny can’t even do 154 but anyway. Canelo beats quillan easy so the GGG fight looks good but geale is a very very good fighter

I hope Alvarez has learned how to cut the ring and pressure a slick boxer… If he tries to box from the outside like he did against Trout or get lost like he did vs Mayweather he will get schooled by Lara… He has shown his not the typical Mexican fighter that his willing to take punishment in order to land his shots and vs a superior boxer he won’t look good… His only chance is to use his size and strength and bully the Cuban if not Lara will win by UD….

In your dreams Havoc
Lara will school this ginger topped novice

Canello will be swinging at air, huffing puffing and blowing,
little beady eyes squinting
And swearing in Spanish

De La Hoya will be sweating ringside
Sat down on a an@l plug and Fishnet body stocking under his suit

Canelo by devastating KO that could never be found when he fought Mayboring.

Alvarez should change his fcuking shirt
He has worn it now in all 10 x face to face meetings with Lara

When he does eventually take it off, De La Hoya will make a pillowcase out of it
Sleeping with his scent . . .

canelo v Lara love this match up, canelo learns a lot about boxing from Floyd, he’s still young , still improving he should wear Lara down tko/ko late

Posted June 12, 2014 2:55 am 


te tumbo

I agree. HBO After Dark or Shobox but PPV? it’s a better matchup than Cotto v. Martinez was on paper but even Lara winning wouldn’t be as major an upset as Cotto’s win but Lara ain’t winning. i see Canelo making an example of him. unless Lara picks up a nutritionist and strength and conditioning coach. that is precisely the gap that exists between him and Canelo at this point. this guy’s gone life-and-death v. the likes of Angulo, Williams, and Molina. Canelo is a solid-notch above those guys. Lara’s getting KTFO.
