Cant find an actual boxing thread just lots of ones about individual fights and topics.

Manny Pacquiao vs Shane Mosley tonight from 2am.

Its going to be so much fun.

Also David Haye finally(again) has a date(July 2) with a Klitschko. I'm so excited.

Used to be a bit of a fan of Sugar Shane back in my 20s. One of the trainers used to bring videos of his fights into the gym for us to watch. Very stylish.

Isn't DeGale fighting this weekend?

And Nathan Cleverley?

When's it on? PPV? If Bastard was a fan in his 20's Mosely will be way past it now.

The Haye Klitschko fight can't be far off now, really looking forward to that one.

Mosley's 39. Paq's 32 which surprised me - always thought he was quite a bit older than that. Seems to have been around for ever.

Just checked - he had his first pro fight at 16 years 1 month old. What a fucking scrapper.

Even my old idol, Julio Cesar Chavez didn't turn pro until he was 17.

Best left hooker of all time.

hector camacho..pfffft, not a chance..


lol i tired to post his record, it was to many characters..:D

very underwhelmed by pacman , i was actually rooting for mosley, ive always liked sugar..
it was very one sided even if he was not at his best..

i really don't care now unless money sorts his act out, theres no one to touch him...

He looked decent in his state side debut..

gutted for froch, byt ward was always a tough prospect, and i think he is a shit fighter, uninspiring and dull, great worker quick and slick, but just dull as fuck..
rather watch froch vs taylor any day of the week..

Whether I can beat a boxer or not in a fight is irrelevant because that isn't the basis onwhich I found my claims.

Boxing is shit because it's too political, corrupt and not that good to watch, compared to virtually all other combat/martial arts sports.

Not true, Joe Calzaghe taking apart Jeff Lacy was 12 rounds of unbridled pleasure for example.

What a load of bollocks. How many other combat/martial arts sports do you watch? Watch a lot of judo? Points karate? Aikido? Sambo? Greco Roman wrestling? Cornish wrestling?

There are hundreds of awesome fights. Or hundreds of exceptions to the rule, to put it in your terms, which means your "rule" is bullshit.

It points to the fact that Tres just doesn't like boxing, which is fair enough. I like it enough to watch some of the big fights but I'm not glued to it. Guy I work with comes in every morning after a football match has been on telly the night before and describes the game as 'boring', no matter what happened in it. Hasn't occured to him that perhaps he just doesn't enjoy watching football.
