“You’re an angry piece of sht punk, and that’s all you are.”

And you, TARD, are nothing but a sociopath, pathological liar and bitter old man. The only boxing knowledge you have is from reading magazines, websites and watching fights on TV.

The sad truth is you’ve never boxed in your life and you’ve trained anybody. Yet you claim that you’ve trained hundreds of fighters and several successful champions…lmao.

Simply list the top 10 most successful fighters you trained in your life and out of what gyms. If you do that some people might actually start believing you. But I already KNOW you can’t do it because you’re nothing but a blowhard FRAUD. A mere con man and charlatan. You didn’t fool Herron and you’ve NEVER fooled me. I was just being nice to out of pity.

Floyd is wary of Golovkin at 154… If Floyd beat Cotto again for the 160lb title he wouldn’t fight GGG… He’d go straight back down to Welterweight — because Gennady has extremely fast hands and he’s a smashing puncher. Floyd doesn’t need that.

Sugar Ray Leonard beat Marvin Hagler for the Middleweight Title but refused to fight top contenders Mike McCallum, Michael Nunn, and Julian Jackson… Leonard couldn’t make welterweight if he killed himself — so Ray let them strip his middleweight title — and he scrounged around found another “world title” he could defend at 160 against the guys he wanted…

I don’t think Floyd would pull those shananigans… And he may not fight Cotto again — because he doesn’t want to open himself up to those accusations that he’s ducking GGG by going straight back to welterweight.

I just want to see him fight a couple of dangerous challengers at 147, which is his 4th weight division.. I hate the Maidana rematch because I think MM doesn’t have a chance to beat Floyd.. I just want to see Floyd fight Porter, Thurman, Brook, or Pacquaio before he retires.

How can he avoid fighting one of them??? I just don’t believe he’s ever fought a young guy who’s really a great boxer-puncher yet.

I don’t know if you can fault Floyd for not fighting certain middleweights.. He’s a natural welterweight now..

I fault Floyd for not fighting Porter, Thurman, Brook, or Pacquiao at 147. Wasn’t Maidana beaten by Alexander and Khan? … Didn’t Porter beat Alexander … and smash Malignaggi?

Funny how Ward fans refuse to even mention Stevenson calling Ward out live on HBO and how Ward refused to even answer him. Stevenson said he will fight Ward at 168, again Ward refused to answer him. Ward said that Kovalev was too big for him……………funny, 175 is only 7 lbs. heavier, Golovkin is 8 lbs. lighter than Ward. Golovkin wants the big fights and Ward is not a big fight, Ward is retired, or as Borat said it, “retarded”…………..after Geale, possible Soliman, Cotto, Quillin, Murray, etc., Void refused to fight Golovkin at 154, so that says something…………………of course Void refused to fight Martinez at 150…………..

Ray Ray.., “Ward will do what he wants v GGG including throwing him around the ring ( Man handle) him.”

That is not going to happen… Ward has about 10 pounds on GGG at the most. He’s a couple inches taller, but GGG is going to be in his face and won’t allow a lot of grabbing and rough housing. He’s too damned strong, smart, and skilled for those tactics.

Curtis Stevens was amazed at how strong Golovkin is on the inside. He drove the thick set, burley Stevens all over the ring without letup and he never thought anyone could do that. Stevens’ corner pulled him out. Ward’s opponents’ corners rarely pull them out of his fights. They go the distance.

Golovkin has sparred with light heavyweights like Kovalev, so he’s tested his strength against some pretty big and powerful dudes.

Golovkin harder than Kessler, Froch or an x light heavy champ in Dawson? Debatable, very. Id say Golovkins timing is better than Froch or Kessler but strength? Not sure about that, the 2 mentioned leaning on u, pushing u would b way harder 2 deal with than the lighter Golovkin. I watched Kessler 4 a few hrs back when he was razor sharp preparing 4 mundine. 4 a moment i thought i was watching a white Foreman ha ha bit of a stretch but u no what im saying.

Posted July 18, 2014 8:01 pm 


TARK

Ward doesn’t batter people… He’s a boxer not a bomber.

He battered Kessler because Mikkel’s a punching bag. But his fights with Froch, Abraham, Miranda, Bika, Green, and Rodriguez weren’t that eventful — except that Ward-Rodriquez was a foul fest were 4 points were taken, two from Ward.

Golovkin is a better boxer than any of those guys — and obviously a much harder puncher… It’s going to be a very tough fight when it happens — because, much like Rigondeaux and Lomachenko, Golovkin has seen everything.

U serous. Ward will batter GGG. Golovkin wont fight ward hes a smallish 160 guy. Ward would man handle GGG. Other middleweight champs, Alvarez, Lara, Floyd there the fights out there 4 GGG not Ward. Hats off once again 2 the aussie who was suppose 2 running scared from GGG, bring on nxt wknd.

I don’t think it was Lara failing to make an impression. I think it was 2 judges who were in the pocket of the promoters and gave the fight to Canelo — since the fight was close enough so no scandal would arise if they did.

From knowing the history of judging professional boxing contests, Canelo, first of all, did not want to be the challenger so it was a non-title fight.. Secondly his team negotiated a catch-weight.. Thirdly they got the referee and judges they wanted.

It was up to Lara to either knock Canelo out… or brutally punch his face in.

Ward NEVER “forced” Dawson to do a DAMN thing!! Dawson called out SOG at 168 AFTER the Hops fight and he got his AZZ taken apart for the same reasons talented but lackadaisical fighters like him, Clottey and Lara LOSE…Its because they often LACK consistent intensity and want to work at THIER pace with the expectation that the judges are gonna appreciate it… Well that’s not always gonna work at times, Ward attacked Dawson from the GATE and he put him down quick…Just like Cotto got to Martinez QUICK they were the hungrier fighters that night and made it happen… No excuses for the LOSERS…

“Ward forced Dawson to boil down to 168lbs, so 3G should force Ward to boil down to 160lbs if he wants the fight so bad. Even a catch weight of 164lbs would do the trick”-That’s the most SISSYFIED thing that I’ve ever heard of. Beating Golovkin is NOT the PRIZE. Defeating Ward is the PRIZE. Being #2 P4P is GREATER than being a MW CHAMP. Bernard Hopkins agrees with ME on that. Kelly Pavlik agrees with ME TOO. IF Golovkin wants to catapult himself into SuperStardom then the Fight awaits him at 168 to beat a PRIME Ward and put a CLASSIC perfomance into the vaults right NOW. Obviously he isn’t READY…..Don’t put words into GGG’s mouth. He has never requested a catchweight in order to make the Fight. He just SAID NO. Not at this time…….in other words I’m not TOO confident in MY SKILLS at THIS time. Give ME a LESSER SKILLED Fighter like Chavez Jr. and I’ll move UP to the FULL 168 NO problemo.

@Hamster… You’re an idiot. Geale did beat Barker by the numbers.. Putting Barker down brutally for a 9-count with a liver shot is an automatic 2-point round.. Those are numbers.

By my count Geale connected cleanly and effectively with more shots in the majority of rounds. Those are also numbers.

Geale lost 2 fights, both by SD — both by bullsht decisions. This is Boxing — what else is new?

Obviously, by almost anybody’s count, Lara out-scored Canelo with clean, effective punches. That was a manufactured outcome for the more popular and bigger draw. If Lara won 10 or 11 rounds without question, like Mayweather, he might have gotten a MD like Floyd.

Hopkins “No, I ain’t losin’ to no white boy … again.”

Canelo “I was born ready … but I’m never gonna be ready for Golovkin so I don’t want to fight him.”

te tumbo

at this point, i see Canelo KOing Golovkin. the guy is wide open and is destroying weak opposition. he hasn’t been remotely tested, which means unproven. Canelo is already a seasoned pro and still peaking. his inside game is already too intense. if a relatively-green Golovkin tried to exchange v. Canelo (which he won’t/can’t avoid like everyone else has) he’ll be KTFO. neither is directly challenging the other(?). perhaps they’re both allowing the matchup to percolate a little longer knowing that as long as they continue to win, it’s inevitable.

“The fight is probably there for Canelo if he wants it” Canelo WANTS It(?!). how much clearer does he have to be following two direct challenges including one $10 million guarantee? He WANTS It. when will Cotto finally step-up and accept his Direct challengeS?

It will be very funny if floyd fights cotto. GGG challenged floyd at 154 and floyd said he is finishing his career at 147, so if he goes up to fight cotto but not GGG it shows he is a quack quack again.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:27 pm

TARK

I think it’s funny… Mayweather wanted to fight Jermain Taylor for the middleweight title after he beat De La Hoya for the 154lb title… His dad and uncle talked Floyd out of it — telling him Taylor was “too big.”

It seems like Floyd lost his chance to push over a completely washed up Sergio Martinez for the 160lb title.

But now, obvioulsy seeing Miguel Cotto there, Floyd might go for a rematch at 160 — if he can get a catchweight at 155.

The fight is there for Floyd if he wants it.

The fight is probably there for Canelo if he wants it.

The guy Cotto WON’T fight is Gennady Golovkin, who’s been waiting for years.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

Boxtardamus: 3G will definitely fight Ward in the future, so just have some patience, boy. But right now, 3G is focused on trying to unify all the major titles at MW. Ward forced Dawson to boil down to 168lbs, so 3G should force Ward to boil down to 160lbs if he wants the fight so bad. Even a catch weight of 164lbs would do the trick.

Why don’t you start calling on 154lbs Champion FMJ to step-up and fight 3G at MW since you think he’s the GOAT — or even best of his generation??? H3ll, FMJ won’t even accept a challenge from 3G at 154lbs and team GGG has been calling out FMJ for about three years now. Those are certainly NOT the actions of “TBE.”

Posted July 17, 2014 9:49 pm

Boxtradamus

Beat Ward right now and you’re instantly a Ring CHAMP. Just think how long its going to take you to become Ring CHAMP at 160. Cotto isn’t going to Fight you and whoever beats HIM won’t Fight you right away either. That puts you at least 18 months away from WINNING the LINEAR Middleweight Championship. When you could have been just 6 months or LESS away from WINNING the LINEAR Super Middleweight Championship. DARE to be GREAT. Canelo’s career has continued after being SCHOOLED by Floyd as yours can after Ward SCHOOLS YOU. SO there’s not as much risk as it seems.

I’ve got to take my hat off to Geale for accepting this fight with 3G. He’s got BIG brass balls — just like Macklin. However, he’s going to take a brutal beating and will get steamrolled in humiliating fashion.

Golovkin makes no sense. He thinks he’s the BEST yet he chases LESSER men who WON’T Fight him rather than FACE the BETTER man that WILL Fight him. I understand chasing CHAMPS but Andre Ward is #2 P4P one division above YOURS. SKILLS is more important than Division. IF you TRULY think you’re the BEST you could go UP and beat Ward and THEN come back to 160 just like you were going to DO for Chavez Jr. Get you some more BALLS.

Geale won in Germany twice. He is b+ or even a level. If gennedy beats him well that’s a great win. Quillan is a bum that fights bums. Soliman just flogged strum with ease in his own backyard so he is irrelivent. Cotto doesn’t stand a chance against canelo who is flat footed let alone GGG. Cotto doesn’t beat the a side fighters.

He has chosen the weakest puncher out of all the challenges due to his suspect chin, as shown vs midget Stevens. Geale will outwork him and has enough power shots to dissuade ‘The illusion’ from just rushing in. Everyone needs to tune in to this fight and watch the myth get exposed. Highest KO ratio for current active champions. I don’t think so, he isn’t a champion until he beats the belt holder. His trinket was given to him, but now he faces the real champion and the result will be a ‘L’. It will be back to the little Welters after this defeat, to restart the hype train for all those suckers currently on board. Chooooooooooo!!! Choooooooooo!!!

Triple G has been and will continue to be sidestepped by the so called marque fighters. This guy was slapping around high caliber prospects as an amateur. He has continued the same pattern as a pro. If he stays at 160 he has the potential to clean out the 160 division, of course promoters will not succumb to his efforts. The money people will protect their cash cow and avoid GGG. Cotto vs GGG is laughable. Cotto may need smelling salts to revive him. GGG has hammer fists that no 160 pounder can absorb, forget the 154 pounders. We will see how his power carries into 168.

Fact is GGG now needs a star name on his resume. The stars in this sport are the likes on Mayweather, Pacman, Cotto, Alvarez, Ward, Froch, Vlad K, Marquez etc. All of these guys have big names on their resume. Tons of defence, if they needed to they moved weight classes to seek out the biggest fights. But all of these guys made that elite level club by beating another elite level fighter. There aint no reason he couldnt fight Floyd at a catch weight. No reason Alvarez couldnt move up to fight him at middle. no reason he couldnt move up to fight Froch, Ward and co up at supermiddle or even Stevenson, Kovalev or even Hopkins at light heavy! But to join the club he’s gotta beat someone in that club.

GGG is unbeatable at 160. At 168 he still has a lot to prove. No need to mention Froch in there. He fights at 168 and GGG says he wants to stay at 160. He was only moving up to fight Chavez which never happened. And the reason for that is because they had sparred with each other and GGG took it to Chavez from what was said so he had full confidence that he would beat Chavez.

There’s no way his resume can be compared to that of Pacquiao, let alone him being the best pound-for-pound based on his record. He may as well be as great as many boxing fans believe, but until he fights someone that can hit him back he’s got ways to go.

Is great for promoters to discover a fighter they can make lots of money off with the least amount of risk to the fighter. It’s also good for fighters’ longevity in the sport, however, I don’t buy into calling someone great just because they have a perfect record or appear dominant in almost every fight.

One must consider the level of opposition, and that’s where guys like GGG and Canelo fail to impress. Sure, everyone must start somewhere, but sooner or later they need to step up and fight someone who can be competitive. Canelo has done that on his last three fights, but GGG, whether through his own fault or not, still has lots to prove.

AGAIN we see guys getting knocked for facing Cotto, Marquez and other LONG term HOF and World Champion fighters yet Golovkin is supposed to be signed off on because he beat Adama, Ouma, Macklin, Stevenson, Rosado, and Ishida??? This guy is being billed as a P4P fighter based on what? At least Rigondeaux burst on the scene by taking an Elite fighter to SCHOOL (Donaire) GGG’s best win is Macklin and in fairness he got rid of him quick but Macklin is simply not World Champion caliber, he had been stopped 2x prior and Martinez had done it recently when GGG got ahold of him… Let the man prove h is ALL that by building a real resume, its TIME… He was gonna go to 168 and face Chavez, why not Froch or other guys with a name at the weight if he cannot secure a bout of note at 160???

I agree wasting his career is a bit strong. And I accept he is avioded and finding it tough to get the big fights. Its something his promotional company need to sort out. After a potential Mayweather V Pacman fight a fight between GGG and Ward for me is the biggest in boxing. It could be worth huge money, but the promotors need a long term view. Froch want to fight in Vegas. I know in interviews he’s stated he wants to aviod GGG as ‘he punches as hard as a mule kicks’! But money talks and if they offered him a massive purse he’d take the fight. The promotors just need to make the investment. If GGG knocked out Froch that what set up a huge fight with Ward. Thing is, would he beat Froch?!

That’s a fair opinion Boxing Barlow. I would not say he is wasting his career though, he’s fairly active. Andre Ward is wasting his career right now that’s for sure. As for 175 for GGG, i do think that would be his ceiling. He’s not a huge middleweight, i would pick Kovalev to Ko him. Ward vs GGG imo is a superfight, but because of the lack of proper build up and the right matches to make that fight appetizing and truly build to a PPV, i do not see it being realistic till about 2016. See now had Sergio Martinez fought GGG, and then GGG whooped him and then was able to get Chavez Junior in the ring and beat him while Ward fought a popular rematch against Froch in the UK with 50,000 people at the live gate. That would make a legit PPV P4P clash between Ward and GGG. Right now that fight would not mean as much as it could and really should.

Hey, I rate GGG. I rate him so much I think he will smash through Geale in 6 rounds. In fact I wouldnt be suprised if its over in 2 or 3! But the reality is you are rated on who you beat. What were your career defining fights. The guy is 32. He’s been a pro for 8 years. He’s had 29 fights. People say he’s pound of pound up there with the best. But his best win is against Mathew Macklin! Not only that but his two fights after that were against Adama and Curtis Stevens. Listen, I thing GGG is the real deal. I think he’s an elite level fighter. Therefore I wanna see him in with the best. There’es not much to pick between Macklin and Geale and neither are career defining fights for a superstar fighter. Make as many excuses as you want but ultimately we’re gonna judge GGG at the end of his career on what he has achiveve and who against. No one will care that he wanted to stay at middleweight and that there were no decent fighters there. I’m a boxing fan. I rate him and thats why I want to see him fight the likes of Ward, Kessler, Froch, Maybe even Mayweather, who knows how far he up he can go, maybe Kovalev or Stevenson! Thing is now is the time he needs to be carving out his legacy. Geale on paper is not the worst fight he could be taking but the reality is this goes deeper than Geale as Geale is probably the toughest fight he has taken! Adama and Stevens were awful fights to take and a real step back after Macklin. Geale is somewhat of a step forward back onto the level Macklin is at. But either way GGG needs to stop wasting his career and chase those career defining fight now!

Posted July 17, 2014 11:25 am

Geale is the a ranked contender and has been involved in a fight of the year candidate against Barker, that was a close fight he could have won. It’s a good fight but i think GGG will break him down with body shots and stop him to the head within 10 rounds. I’m no fight prophet but that’s how i see that one going. I also predict more whining from the “GGG needs to fight somebody” crowd. You people need to learn who the ducker is and who the duckie is in these divisions.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:53 am

Rapid exactly. Is he ducking Cotto as well?. Maybe since Chavez junior won’t fight him, he should fight Kovalev at 175.. o i see now GGG is ducking Stevenson and Kovalev. That’s the logic people have. It’s stupid.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:48 am

Big Ham

By the way Boxing Barlow, Jeff Lacey and Lucien Bute had very clear holes in their games that were seen before they lost. Lucien in particular would have moments where he would just mentally fall to pieces, and there is the Andrade fight as well. People did get involved in Lacey fever, i remember when he won his first title i thought his opponent outboxed him for a stretch. I picked Calzaghe to beat him based on Joe’s performance against Charles Brewer, and Byron Mitchell. Mitchell was a bigger puncher than Jeff, and Joe took his best shot and got up. Brewer was a more experienced relentless pressure fighter than Lacey. But the way you anaylze things Calzaghe was probably unproven and questionable as an elite at that time to. You got to look at how fighters beats fighters. Nobody in boxing has a 16KO streak at the level GGG has. Not even Wlad Klitschko. Tyson did not have a steak like that either once he won a title.

Now he could fight Cotto, but, who else at should he “step up to” Quillen wont fight him…. Martinez wouldn’t fight him?? who’s the other big dogs at 60 he isn’t stepping up too??

Posted July 17, 2014 10:46 am

Big Ham

GGG is fighting the best competition available. Who would you rather he fight in his weight class? Quillen? Good luck getting him in the ring, Sturm? Sturm turned down good money for years to fight GGG. Ward? Ward won’t even fight bums at 168 he is more concerned with his co promotor Antonio Leonard not being paid 100k so has decided to sit on the shelf for the next two years and sulk. GGG is a p4p top ten fighter for sure, he is not ranked as such because golden boy has to make room for undeserving fighters in Ring magazine like Canelo, Robert Guerrero or whoever Floyd is fighting next. Madaina will be in the P4p by september. Saying GGG needs to step up his competition is a very poor comment. The competition needs to step up to GGG. The best fights of GGG have taken place in the gyms for free. He kicks the $hit out of anyone from 160-200lbs that steps in the ring with him.

I have to agree Boxing Barlow, I don’t understand how Golovkin would be considered anymore “Elite” than Deontay Wilder based on his resume which is paper thin at best..His fans wanna peddle the notion that he is “super avoided” and thus should be conferred “Elite Status” absent dispatching World Class fighters… That really does NOT fly… He was quoted as saying he is FOCUSED on 160 and not looking to box guys like Ward at 168, you can see this interview with his trainer … I have no issue with him working in one weight class but that said he needs to STOP discussing how he will face anyone from 168 on down its becoming a marketing ploy… This guy REALLY needs to step up his competition if he wants to really be able to substantiate the hype…

Posted July 17, 2014 10:14 am

Boxing Barlow

GGG looks impressive but he still need to step up a level to get to elite. As I have said in my previous post though, I dont think fighting the likes of Geale will prove anything. Did we think Barker had suddenly broke through to the elite when he beat Geale? GGG is hot property at the minute but this is based on speculative talk rather than proven track record. I can think of more than a few fighters in the past who have been in this position and were then found out to be not as good as people thought they were going to be. Anyone remember the ‘next Mike Tyson’ Jeff Lacey? He had a record of a similar standard to GGG at that stage in his career. Lucian Bute? Its amazing now to think that some didnt think that beating everyone in the super six was enough for Andre Ward to be considered the number one super middle, he had to beat Bute as well. Most didnt give Froch a chance against Bute when Bute came over to England. But based on what? Wins against Edision Miranda and Brian McGee? I could list more but I think you get my point. And the point here is that GGG is living off his hype at the minute. His promotors should be striking whilst the iron is hot and he should be looking at fighting Ward asap. At the very least Carl Froch or even Kessler. For this he needs to step up, but if he’s as good as people think he is this shouldnt be an issue. But in my book until he gets in the ring with at least a Froch or Kessler and does a number on them then there is a big question mark over this ‘elite level’ status people are already giving him.

GGG may possibly be the future of the middleweight division, but so far his competition has been somewhat weak. Here’s the list of his last 10 opponents: Osumanu Adama, Curtis Stevens, Matthew Macklin, Nobuhiro Ishida, Gabriel Rosado, Gregorz Proksa, Makoto Fuchigami, Lajuan Simon, Kassim Ouma, Nilson Julio Tapia.

I don’t see much difference between Canelo Alvarez’ record and that of GGG’s…other than Canelo fighting Floyd and Trout. Some boxing fans want to cling on a fighter’s bandwagon so badly that they can care less how that fighter got where he is. I’m not saying they are just average fighters or that they are not as great as their record show, but they are not pressed to prove themselves against tougher competition.

Geale’s gonna get knocked out quick time IMO, a bit similar to the way GGG dispatched with Macklin. GGG is a good fighter on a different level to the other middleweights. The likes of Geale, Barker, Macklin, Sturm (in the past few year at least), Murray, Martinez (past few years), Soliman, who have been fighting it out for titles in recent times are not at the level fighter are in other divisions. If you were to compare them to Ward, Froch, Kessler, Andrea Dirrell, and even Bika, Groves and DeGale, they are not in the same class skills wise. GGG is the only fighter in the division who could move up and win something against those supermiddles just mentioned.

as for the fight, geale is criminally underrated and will win quite a few rounds. GGG should slow him down with body shots and win comfortably on points.

I’ll be cheering on my countryman geale, if GGG is off key it could be a very close fight GGG W12 117-111

@Squared Circle..”Canelo has great chin, a lot of power and is a PPV superstar. He could very well be the biggest boxing star out of Mexico right now. However, he’s NOT one of the greatest amateur fighters in history; 3G is. Although Canelo would give it his everything and would probably nail GGG many times, he would ultimately get outboxed, beat-up and maybe even stopped by 3G. That’s my honest assessment of that match-up.”

Once GGG does??? That will be a great fight. Smashing PPV. But don’t make it sound like Ward is ducking GGG. He’s said many times he’s anxious to fight him.

There’s really nobody for Ward to fight at 168. He’s cleaned the division out long ago. But I’m sure he wants to fight GGG before he moves on to LHW.

Tumbo.., “I see Canelo KOing GGG.”

Yeah right… Canelo couldn’t KO inept Matthew Hatton… couldn’t KO old Mosley… couldn’t KO rickety Trout… and it took him 10 rounds to stop Angulo.

Meanwhile a much fresher Angulo gets stopped in only 6 rounds by James Kirkland… Kirkland gets KO’d in one (1) round by Nobuhiro Isida.. Isida gets utterly smashed by Gennady Golovkin in 3 rounds — with one sizzling right he’s sent to the hospital for an overnighter.

So naturally GGG smashes Canelo like he doesn’t even exist. Canelo is easy to hit and GGG is very difficult to hit.

But BRING IT ON if you think you can do it … I guarantee you Gennady is the last opponent Canelo wants.

at this point, i see Canelo KOing Golovkin. the guy is wide open and is destroying weak opposition. he hasn’t been remotely tested, which means unproven. Canelo is already a seasoned pro and still peaking. his inside game is already too intense. if a relatively-green Golovkin tried to exchange v. Canelo (which he won’t/can’t avoid like everyone else has) he’ll be KTFO. neither is directly challenging the other(?). perhaps they’re both allowing the matchup to percolate a little longer knowing that as long as they continue to win, it’s inevitable.

I think it’s funny… Mayweather wanted to fight Jermain Taylor for the middleweight title after he beat De La Hoya for the 154lb title… His dad and uncle talked Floyd out of it — telling him Taylor was “too big.”

It seems like Floyd lost his chance to push over a completely washed up Sergio Martinez for the 160lb title.

But now, obvioulsy seeing Miguel Cotto there, Floyd might go for a rematch at 160 — if he can get a catchweight at 155.

The fight is there for Floyd if he wants it.

The fight is probably there for Canelo if he wants it.

The guy Cotto WON’T fight is Gennady Golovkin, who’s been waiting for years.

Beat Ward right now and you’re instantly a Ring CHAMP. Just think how long its going to take you to become Ring CHAMP at 160. Cotto isn’t going to Fight you and whoever beats HIM won’t Fight you right away either. That puts you at least 18 months away from WINNING the LINEAR Middleweight Championship. When you could have been just 6 months or LESS away from WINNING the LINEAR Super Middleweight Championship. DARE to be GREAT. Canelo’s career has continued after being SCHOOLED by Floyd as yours can after Ward SCHOOLS YOU. SO there’s not as much risk as it seems.

Golovkin makes no sense. He thinks he’s the BEST yet he chases LESSER men who WON’T Fight him rather than FACE the BETTER man that WILL Fight him. I understand chasing CHAMPS but Andre Ward is #2 P4P one division above YOURS. SKILLS is more important than Division. IF you TRULY think you’re the BEST you could go UP and beat Ward and THEN come back to 160 just like you were going to DO for Chavez Jr. Get you some more BALLS.

There’s no way you can qualify that statement Peej. Not until GGG cleans out the middleweight division.

Triple G has been and will continue to be sidestepped by the so called marque fighters. This guy was slapping around high caliber prospects as an amateur. He has continued the same pattern as a pro. If he stays at 160 he has the potential to clean out the 160 division, of course promoters will not succumb to his efforts. The money people will protect their cash cow and avoid GGG. Cotto vs GGG is laughable. Cotto may need smelling salts to revive him. GGG has hammer fists that no 160 pounder can absorb, forget the 154 pounders. We will see how his power carries into 168.

AGAIN GGG is the Deontay Wilder of the MW division he is beating up C Class comp as posters below have stated.. He is gonna have to do a lot to warrant this sort of hype… Time will tell.

He really hasn’t fought anyone all that special. Beating up on C- Level competition is ok but sooner or later you’ll be matched with someone who won’t wilt and can KO you ! Then we’ll see . I actually like Froch in that one !

Re: GGG KO’ing 16 successive Middleweights…

Wilfredo Bazooka Gomez KO’D 17 successive Super Bantams in defence of his crown back in the 1980s, which I think is still a record to this day, although I stand to be corrected.

I think GGG is moving along at a nice and steady pace. Not too careful and not too deliberate. Geale is a decent challenge for him, and after GGG beats Geale, “Who Got Next”???

Fact is GGG now needs a star name on his resume. The stars in this sport are the likes on Mayweather, Pacman, Cotto, Alvarez, Ward, Froch, Vlad K, Marquez etc. All of these guys have big names on their resume. Tons of defence, if they needed to they moved weight classes to seek out the biggest fights. But all of these guys made that elite level club by beating another elite level fighter. There aint no reason he couldnt fight Floyd at a catch weight. No reason Alvarez couldnt move up to fight him at middle. no reason he couldnt move up to fight Froch, Ward and co up at supermiddle or even Stevenson, Kovalev or even Hopkins at light heavy! But to join the club he’s gotta beat someone in that club.

Posted July 17, 2014 2:15 pm

GGG is unbeatable at 160. At 168 he still has a lot to prove. No need to mention Froch in there. He fights at 168 and GGG says he wants to stay at 160. He was only moving up to fight Chavez which never happened. And the reason for that is because they had sparred with each other and GGG took it to Chavez from what was said so he had full confidence that he would beat Chavez.

Froch don t want anythingng to do wit gennady . Seen a bunch of interviews on the net and the guy starts trippin up at the mention of gennady s name . Macklin is a very respected tough guy fighter in europe ( he was robbed by strum in germany ) and ggg s demolition of him made a real statement over there . Dre s only big name up there who I can be sure will fight him but hes got promo issues at the mo

There’s no way his resume can be compared to that of Pacquiao, let alone him being the best pound-for-pound based on his record. He may as well be as great as many boxing fans believe, but until he fights someone that can hit him back he’s got ways to go.

Is great for promoters to discover a fighter they can make lots of money off with the least amount of risk to the fighter. It’s also good for fighters’ longevity in the sport, however, I don’t buy into calling someone great just because they have a perfect record or appear dominant in almost every fight.

One must consider the level of opposition, and that’s where guys like GGG and Canelo fail to impress. Sure, everyone must start somewhere, but sooner or later they need to step up and fight someone who can be competitive. Canelo has done that on his last three fights, but GGG, whether through his own fault or not, still has lots to prove.

Can’t really say he is P4P the best and if you rank him next to Pac then he definitely isn’t P4P the best. But he definitely is the best at 160 and nobody is beating him there.

Posted July 17, 2014 12:26 pm

GGG is the P4P best fighter in boxing today along side Manny PAcquiao. Geale will be stopped and every other fighter from 154-175 will have a tough time beating this legend in the making. He has all the tools and skills to beat all of them. Some can continue to question GGG, but he keeps winning impressively and will continue to do so. GGG is the real deal and a true dedicated professional.

Posted July 17, 2014 12:24 pm 


SREDMOND

Big Ham, you are OVERLY defensive and you seem nervous about GGG ACTUALLY earning his position and accolades.. FACT is that his defeated opponents have LARGELY been WEAK fighters.. AGAIN we see guys getting knocked for facing Cotto, Marquez and other LONG term HOF and World Champion fighters yet Golovkin is supposed to be signed off on because he beat Adama, Ouma, Macklin, Stevenson, Rosado, and Ishida??? This guy is being billed as a P4P fighter based on what? At least Rigondeaux burst on the scene by taking an Elite fighter to SCHOOL (Donaire) GGG’s best win is Macklin and in fairness he got rid of him quick but Macklin is simply not World Champion caliber, he had been stopped 2x prior and Martinez had done it recently when GGG got ahold of him… Let the man prove h is ALL that by building a real resume, its TIME… He was gonna go to 168 and face Chavez, why not Froch or other guys with a name at the weight if he cannot secure a bout of note at 160???

I agree wasting his career is a bit strong. And I accept he is avioded and finding it tough to get the big fights. Its something his promotional company need to sort out. After a potential Mayweather V Pacman fight a fight between GGG and Ward for me is the biggest in boxing. It could be worth huge money, but the promotors need a long term view. Froch want to fight in Vegas. I know in interviews he’s stated he wants to aviod GGG as ‘he punches as hard as a mule kicks’! But money talks and if they offered him a massive purse he’d take the fight. The promotors just need to make the investment. If GGG knocked out Froch that what set up a huge fight with Ward. Thing is, would he beat Froch?!

Posted July 17, 2014 11:45 am 


Big Ham

That’s a fair opinion Boxing Barlow. I would not say he is wasting his career though, he’s fairly active. Andre Ward is wasting his career right now that’s for sure. As for 175 for GGG, i do think that would be his ceiling. He’s not a huge middleweight, i would pick Kovalev to Ko him. Ward vs GGG imo is a superfight, but because of the lack of proper build up and the right matches to make that fight appetizing and truly build to a PPV, i do not see it being realistic till about 2016. See now had Sergio Martinez fought GGG, and then GGG whooped him and then was able to get Chavez Junior in the ring and beat him while Ward fought a popular rematch against Froch in the UK with 50,000 people at the live gate. That would make a legit PPV P4P clash between Ward and GGG. Right now that fight would not mean as much as it could and really should.

Hey, I rate GGG. I rate him so much I think he will smash through Geale in 6 rounds. In fact I wouldnt be suprised if its over in 2 or 3! But the reality is you are rated on who you beat. What were your career defining fights. The guy is 32. He’s been a pro for 8 years. He’s had 29 fights. People say he’s pound of pound up there with the best. But his best win is against Mathew Macklin! Not only that but his two fights after that were against Adama and Curtis Stevens. Listen, I thing GGG is the real deal. I think he’s an elite level fighter. Therefore I wanna see him in with the best. There’es not much to pick between Macklin and Geale and neither are career defining fights for a superstar fighter. Make as many excuses as you want but ultimately we’re gonna judge GGG at the end of his career on what he has achiveve and who against. No one will care that he wanted to stay at middleweight and that there were no decent fighters there. I’m a boxing fan. I rate him and thats why I want to see him fight the likes of Ward, Kessler, Froch, Maybe even Mayweather, who knows how far he up he can go, maybe Kovalev or Stevenson! Thing is now is the time he needs to be carving out his legacy. Geale on paper is not the worst fight he could be taking but the reality is this goes deeper than Geale as Geale is probably the toughest fight he has taken! Adama and Stevens were awful fights to take and a real step back after Macklin. Geale is somewhat of a step forward back onto the level Macklin is at. But either way GGG needs to stop wasting his career and chase those career defining fight now!

Posted July 17, 2014 11:25 am

Geale is the a ranked contender and has been involved in a fight of the year candidate against Barker, that was a close fight he could have won. It’s a good fight but i think GGG will break him down with body shots and stop him to the head within 10 rounds. I’m no fight prophet but that’s how i see that one going. I also predict more whining from the “GGG needs to fight somebody” crowd. You people need to learn who the ducker is and who the duckie is in these divisions.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:53 am 


Big Ham

Rapid exactly. Is he ducking Cotto as well?. Maybe since Chavez junior won’t fight him, he should fight Kovalev at 175.. o i see now GGG is ducking Stevenson and Kovalev. That’s the logic people have. It’s stupid.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:48 am 


Big Ham

By the way Boxing Barlow, Jeff Lacey and Lucien Bute had very clear holes in their games that were seen before they lost. Lucien in particular would have moments where he would just mentally fall to pieces, and there is the Andrade fight as well. People did get involved in Lacey fever, i remember when he won his first title i thought his opponent outboxed him for a stretch. I picked Calzaghe to beat him based on Joe’s performance against Charles Brewer, and Byron Mitchell. Mitchell was a bigger puncher than Jeff, and Joe took his best shot and got up. Brewer was a more experienced relentless pressure fighter than Lacey. But the way you anaylze things Calzaghe was probably unproven and questionable as an elite at that time to. You got to look at how fighters beats fighters. Nobody in boxing has a 16KO streak at the level GGG has. Not even Wlad Klitschko. Tyson did not have a steak like that either once he won a title.

Now he could fight Cotto, but, who else at should he “step up to” Quillen wont fight him…. Martinez wouldn’t fight him?? who’s the other big dogs at 60 he isn’t stepping up too??

Posted July 17, 2014 10:46 am 


Big Ham

GGG is fighting the best competition available. Who would you rather he fight in his weight class? Quillen? Good luck getting him in the ring, Sturm? Sturm turned down good money for years to fight GGG. Ward? Ward won’t even fight bums at 168 he is more concerned with his co promotor Antonio Leonard not being paid 100k so has decided to sit on the shelf for the next two years and sulk. GGG is a p4p top ten fighter for sure, he is not ranked as such because golden boy has to make room for undeserving fighters in Ring magazine like Canelo, Robert Guerrero or whoever Floyd is fighting next. Madaina will be in the P4p by september. Saying GGG needs to step up his competition is a very poor comment. The competition needs to step up to GGG. The best fights of GGG have taken place in the gyms for free. He kicks the $hit out of anyone from 160-200lbs that steps in the ring with him.

Posted July 17, 2014 10:38 am 


SREDMOND

I have to agree Boxing Barlow, I don’t understand how Golovkin would be considered anymore “Elite” than Deontay Wilder based on his resume which is paper thin at best..His fans wanna peddle the notion that he is “super avoided” and thus should be conferred “Elite Status” absent dispatching World Class fighters… That really does NOT fly… He was quoted as saying he is FOCUSED on 160 and not looking to box guys like Ward at 168, you can see this interview with his trainer … I have no issue with him working in one weight class but that said he needs to STOP discussing how he will face anyone from 168 on down its becoming a marketing ploy… This guy REALLY needs to step up his competition if he wants to really be able to substantiate the hype…

Posted July 17, 2014 10:14 am 


Boxing Barlow

GGG looks impressive but he still need to step up a level to get to elite. As I have said in my previous post though, I dont think fighting the likes of Geale will prove anything. Did we think Barker had suddenly broke through to the elite when he beat Geale? GGG is hot property at the minute but this is based on speculative talk rather than proven track record. I can think of more than a few fighters in the past who have been in this position and were then found out to be not as good as people thought they were going to be. Anyone remember the ‘next Mike Tyson’ Jeff Lacey? He had a record of a similar standard to GGG at that stage in his career. Lucian Bute? Its amazing now to think that some didnt think that beating everyone in the super six was enough for Andre Ward to be considered the number one super middle, he had to beat Bute as well. Most didnt give Froch a chance against Bute when Bute came over to England. But based on what? Wins against Edision Miranda and Brian McGee? I could list more but I think you get my point. And the point here is that GGG is living off his hype at the minute. His promotors should be striking whilst the iron is hot and he should be looking at fighting Ward asap. At the very least Carl Froch or even Kessler. For this he needs to step up, but if he’s as good as people think he is this shouldnt be an issue. But in my book until he gets in the ring with at least a Froch or Kessler and does a number on them then there is a big question mark over this ‘elite level’ status people are already giving him.

GGG may possibly be the future of the middleweight division, but so far his competition has been somewhat weak. Here’s the list of his last 10 opponents: Osumanu Adama, Curtis Stevens, Matthew Macklin, Nobuhiro Ishida, Gabriel Rosado, Gregorz Proksa, Makoto Fuchigami, Lajuan Simon, Kassim Ouma, Nilson Julio Tapia.

I don’t see much difference between Canelo Alvarez’ record and that of GGG’s…other than Canelo fighting Floyd and Trout. Some boxing fans want to cling on a fighter’s bandwagon so badly that they can care less how that fighter got where he is. I’m not saying they are just average fighters or that they are not as great as their record show, but they are not pressed to prove themselves against tougher competition.

Geale’s gonna get knocked out quick time IMO, a bit similar to the way GGG dispatched with Macklin. GGG is a good fighter on a different level to the other middleweights. The likes of Geale, Barker, Macklin, Sturm (in the past few year at least), Murray, Martinez (past few years), Soliman, who have been fighting it out for titles in recent times are not at the level fighter are in other divisions. If you were to compare them to Ward, Froch, Kessler, Andrea Dirrell, and even Bika, Groves and DeGale, they are not in the same class skills wise. GGG is the only fighter in the division who could move up and win something against those supermiddles just mentioned.

Good fight for Genna. Geale fought better opposition than GGG and his win over Sturm in Germany almost overshadows all GGG’s wins.

I’m rooting for GGG in this fight and I think he’ll win by stoppage in the lately rounds but I won’t be surprised if Geale comes with a good game plan and succeeds to outbox GGG.

Anything can happen.
