KOM, Not disagreeing with you but I’m sure he was promoting him when it “finally” ended v Andre Ward. Like I said he just picked up the “schedule”.Posted August 21, 2014 8:03 am
He’s always wrong mate, don’t let him get to ya, he goes by stats and doesn’t actually know what he’s watching, he’s a stat guy.Posted August 21, 2014 7:29 am
Only one wrong prediction Boxtra?? Then what happened to these?
I actually quite like TARKs comments
That’s what these boards are about

Ingleberry, Eddie Hearn didnt promote Froch when he entered the SuperSix, it was Mick Hennesy and Hennesy Sports.Posted August 21, 2014 7:22 am

Tumbo.., “That is a no-holds-barred street-brawl not a fair-fight and it isn’t a sport. if You don’t see the fight element that is critical to the fight-game of boxing…”
MMA is FAR from a street fight… For instance… If somebody dives for your legs, you can’t grab him around his waist and spike him on his head…
…and you can’t gouge his eyes out… bite his nose off… or rip his throat out…
There’re 168 specific things you CAN’T do in MMA that a hand-to-hand street fighter is free to do.. They’re putting in more rules all the time to make the sport safer than ever …
I love Boxing for the artistry. It’s not fighting to me. Butting heads… throwing elbows… grappling… rabbit punching… hitting on the break… pushing and throwing… all fouling is BULLSHlT to me.
I love to see the masterful jab and precision footwork… finessing shorter guys inside without grabbing, pushing, or fouling… expert counterpunching and imaginative combination punching… Golovkin is one of the best because he’s one of the purest boxers and punchers, and he doesn’t wait… If the action is not happening he makes it happen.Posted August 21, 2014 3:11 am
“MMA is the ‘fight game’. MMA uses TINY gloves.. striking with feet, knees, elbows, and hands.. wrestling throws.. choke outs.. submission holds.. and ground and pound” that is a no-holds-barred street-brawl not a fair-fight and it isn’t a sport. if You don’t see the fight element that is critical to the fight-game of boxing, you know way too much that nobody cares about or pays to watch.Posted August 20, 2014 8:24 pm
“Guerrero would overwhelm Brook with constant pressure and intelligent aggressiveness like he did against Berto.” – No way. Brook is way slicker than Berto who has two left feet and a good supply of steroids but not much else.Posted August 20, 2014 8:11 pm
Brook tied your man up everytime he charged in like a cock in a hen fight.
If Porter was up to the job he would have realised Brook is neither Malignaggi nor Alexander and his bullying rough house tactics won’t be enough. He was wild and made to look crude by skill.
It was a close fight but entertainment wise you overlook all the fouling and billy goat head first eyes closed swinging from Porter and talk only about Brook tying him up when he attempted such tactics.
Please do watch the fight again, or stick to Rios Alvarado affairs and enjoy your ‘boxing ‘Posted August 20, 2014 7:57 pm
@ TARK – very well put!!!Posted August 20, 2014 6:29 pm
Te, “it’s not called the “FIGHT-game” (not talent or skills-game) for nothing.”
MMA is the “fight game.” MMA uses TINY gloves.. striking with feet, knees, elbows, and hands.. wrestling throws.. choke outs.. submission holds.. and ground and pound.
Sounds like your sport.
Boxing doesn’t allow any of the above except hand strikes… It also doesn’t allow pushing.. grabbing.. holding.. low blows.. headbutts.. holding and hitting.. hitting behind the ear, hitting on the back, hitting with the palm, back, or sides of the glove, or thumb strikes.
That’s why it’s called BOXING.. It’s the very specific art of punching an opponent on legal scoring areas, while blocking, parrying, slipping, ducking, rolling, and otherwise evading incoming punches – and using clever footwork to help you achieve these results.
The rules on grabbing, holding, and pushing aren’t aggressively enforced… unless the leeway a boxer is given on these 3 infractions is badly abused… But a referee CAN penalize ANY rule infraction at his discretion.Posted August 20, 2014 6:10 pm
Kell Brook and Carl Froch’s next fights are all about Eddie Hearn’s ability to deal with US promoters. He’s never really needed to previously. The Super 6 was a format that was (sort of) followed, that Froch just went along with. Exactly the same this weekend. Brook just wanted his shot. Eddie Hearn’s experience is mainly around European/ Commonwealth level with occasional World Title thrown in. Brook’s next fight will ultimately be decided on whether Froch fights Chavez Jr.Posted August 20, 2014 4:37 pm
When did I put Brook down? I didn’t really care who won the fight. I was just hoping for a good fight. The fight to me, was unwatchable a second time. If Porter had won, it’d still be the same issue. Brook won, yes. He held, and clinched and pushed down, and headlocked… I aint hating because it was up to the ref to intervene and put a stop to it. He didn’t, so Brook won. He used what he had to in order to win. No sour grapes here. I didn’t have a dog in the fight, so to speak. I was just hoping for an exciting fight. And that fight was anything but exciting. Just sayin’ it how it is.Posted August 20, 2014 4:36 pm
“[Brook v. Porter] was almost like the Paulie vs Broner fight” but NOT like Canelo v. Lara. Brook delivered. Lara did not. it’s the difference that distinguishes Brook’s win from Lara’s loss. it’s not called the “FIGHT-game” (not talent- or skills-game) for nothing.Posted August 20, 2014 4:26 pm
Jesus, enough with the sour grapes!Posted August 20, 2014 4:22 pm
And The New!!!!!!
kato3388, the reason you can’t watch the fight a second time is because Porter lost, you would watch it again if Porter had won. Brook fans can watch it again, that was an excellent win for Brook who won fighting away against a very good champ, stop putting Brook down just because he won the fight and Porter did not.Posted August 20, 2014 4:18 pm
Tark has given out a NUMBER of RIM JOBS recently that have netted him losses, ie Porter, and Lara, yet the twang of another mans crack has NOT dimmed his desire or willingness to dig in again sign off on Brooks future after an M/D against Shawn Porter…
Posted August 20, 2014 3:55 pm
LOLPosted August 20, 2014 3:57 pm
I honestly couldn’t sit through the Porter/Brook fight a second time. But Brook won the fight fair and square… I guess. Fighters used to get disqualified for too much holding and clinching. Since when is that a standard boxing defense?
I don’t have a problem with any of these names who they want to fight Brook in December. Brandon Rios is a tough challenger, who’s style is similar to Porter’s. Except we know Rios won’t be clinching or allow Brook to clinch. Josesito Lopez is also a tough challenger who is game for playing the upset starter. He could very well pull off a win against Brook. It’s a stretch but so was the Victor Ortiz fight. Andre Berto might be the softest touch here in that he’s not as imposing as we once thought. Keith Thurman, IMO, seems like a beast who can bang and box, so he would be the toughest fight. I doubt Brook will be fighting him anytime soon.

Kell is another one of them ‘sure thing’ guys TARK is trying to ram down our throats, but as soon as Kell loses TARK will bail on him and piggy backed on The guy that beats him. You can’t make it up!Posted August 20, 2014 3:44 pm

Guerrero would overwhelm Brook with constant pressure and intelligent aggressiveness like he did against Berto.Porter bullrushed all night and didn’t fight smart at all.Posted August 20, 2014 3:21 pm
I feel sorry for Porter,dumped in the trash by his own people. That’s why Floyd’s so scared to fight MannyPosted August 20, 2014 3:19 pm

Bobcat, the UK judge was from Yorkshire, just down the road from Brooks gym in Sheffield and he called it even. UK judges are no different from US judges. Both can be fair, both can be dodgy. It’s individuals, not nationalities my friend.Posted August 20, 2014 2:28 pm
most definitley agree with truthspeakerPosted August 20, 2014 2:15 pm
Brook is a Legend he just beat a B level fighter. LOL.Posted August 20, 2014 2:09 pm
I don’t really believe in that stuff that says you have to really beat the titlest or champ to take his belt. If you win more rounds then you win more rounds. Plain and simple. I thought Brook won more rounds. Now I didn’t score it, just going by what I felt after the fight. Porter smothered a lot of his punches when he rushed it and Brook tagged him a lot when he rushed in. Brook in my opinion clearly won the fight and deserved the win. This fight was almost like the Paulie vs Broner fight. Paulie threw a lot more punches, though they were arm punches but he threw a lot more and Broner was landing the harder punches and I feel that Brook in this fight was landing the harder punches and more fan friendly punches also.Posted August 20, 2014 12:54 pm

The British judge scored it a draw so you can’t say brook would have definitely got the decision if it was in the uk, he won because he outclassed porter all night regardless of the scoresPosted August 20, 2014 12:40 pm
I love how people act like Guerrero is some sort of walk in the park??? This guy has what 2 losses? one of them to Floyd Mayweather Jr? He is a TOUGH Mexican that is willing to walk thru fire for a win and he can box when he actually departs from slugging… It would be a damn good opponent for Brook to get on his resume…Posted August 20, 2014 12:36 pm
I do not believe he beat Porter, but credit to the U.S official and judges if it was in Britain or Germany no way hometown fighter loses, no way. To beat a champion you have to be the fighter that takes it to him unless people body punches. Porter was not beat just dont know if he beat Brook either.Posted August 20, 2014 12:21 pm

Kell deserved the victory against porter, did the cleaner work and cleaner punches. Porter was not able to adjust and kept coming in wide all night ,the clinching as much his fault as kellsPosted August 20, 2014 12:17 pm
i concur with Ingle. quite frankly, Porter was made to look like a high-caliber tune-up opponent but a tune-up opponent nonetheless. the last before Brook faces a serious title-threat now that he owns the titles. fortunately, welter is so loaded with talent that even “fairly easy marks” like Rios, Berto, Guerrero, and Lopez are welcome matchups that would serve to clarify the rankings. the purpose of ALL matchups in boxing.

Kelslappy should fight Len Goodman. They could start out with a foxtrot and end up with a salsa. C’mon Len.Posted August 20, 2014 11:08 am
