8/31/2017- Lancaster, Ca…. Well, now that the stench has dissipated somewhat, it’s time to get back to some REAL shit. I only have a few things to say about this thing, unless it keeps coming up in the media. Course, then I’ll be obligated to contribute my two cents, house rules. As silly as it sounds, to ME, Floyd Mayweather is 49-0, I REFUSE to count that farce, CAN’T do it. Not that anybody cares but it’s a source of satisfaction for ME. For all those that are cool with it, I assume the next time Floyd pulls this shit they’ll be right there. Maybe his next opponent will be Pee Wee Herman. Floyd can say it’ll be to shame all the masturbators of the world. I see NO reason why he can’t get to 60-0 at THIS rate. I HAVE to respond when I read about Floyd repeating that bullshit about “walking McGregor down”. He made it sound like he was gonna’ do it from jump, when he didn’t do it until McGregor was too tired to get an erection and STILL didn’t go down. Now, Floyd can try to mend his fences with the Beebs. So, if Floyd is REALLY finally retired, do his house ho’s get marked down?
Floyd said he was gonna’ “wear him down with body shots”. You always see him throwing heavy ‘body’ shots on the heavy bag, then during the fight he throws about ten over ten rounds. Saw where Britain’s middleweight Chris Eubank Jr. has been training with Floyd Mayweather Sr. in Vegas. He calls him a “great trainer”. This guy’s the only guy I know that’s considered ‘great’ but only has ONE guy that’s worth a shit. What other fighter has he taken from ‘cradle to crown’? As proud and aloof as Papa Eubank is, I’m surprised he allows Sr. to mess with his son. I can just picture him standing around posing, pissed, with his nostrils looking like a double barreled 12 gauge.
When is Paulie Malifaggi gonna’ stop acting like a ho and begging to fight McGregor? Nobody wants to witness that shit, plus I thought his whiny ass retired? As a commentator, I think it’s CLASSLESS for him to slam Connor publicly the way he does. Somebody needs to rein his ass in.
Danny Jacobs has milked his imaginary ‘win’ over GGG LONG enough. Surviving is NOT winning, Daniel. He’s claiming he’s the “most feared middleweight in the game”. Guess what, Sergio Mora fought you TWICE and dropped your ass once, he didn’t show much “fear” and nobody has put ‘killer’ status on Mora. I’ve seen plenty of mw’s out there asking for your cell number. Call ME nuts but I say Lemieux would knock Jacobs’ ass out. Now, let’s get to the REAL fights on tap. I’m not sure who I’m rolling with in the blockbuster GGG-Canelo Alvarez hookup. If you hold my tootsies to the flames, I’d go with GGG. It’s gonna’ be a hard fight, but GGG (37-0-33K) is NOT Khan, Chavez Jr. Liam Smith OR James Kirkland. Those guys were ‘easy pickings’ for the Redhead. The only one that had a shot was Kirkland (sorta’) because of his power, then again, I remember how he struggled with the original punching bag, Alfredo Angulo. Come to think of it, Canelo (49-1-1-34K) could be in some REAL trouble. They do it on the 16th of Sept. in ‘Vegas.
There will be dueling cards of interest on October 14th. Why does boxing DO this? At Stub Hub, there’s a double header showcasing two locals leading to their long awaited rematch. Abner Mares (30-2-1-15K) faces Andres Gutierrez (35-1-25K) and Leo Santa Cruz (33-1-1-18K) faces Chris Avalos (27-5-20K). I don’t know too much about Gutierrez, so I’m picking Mares to handle his business. Avalos says ” I put some hurt on Leo in the amateurs and I’m sure he’ll have that on his mind”. Really? I remember Henry Tillman beat Mike Tyson twice in the ams and didn’t last three rounds in the pros. The boxing landscape is congested with guys that flipped the script on guys they lost to in the ams. I agree, with Chris, Leo WILL remember it and stop Chris late.
There’s also a triple header that night featuring: Erslandy Lara (24-2-2-14K v. Terrell Gausha (20-0-9K), Jermell Charlo (29-0-14K) v. Erickson Lubin (18-0-13K) and Jarrett Hurd (20-0-14K) v. Austin Trout (30-3-17K). So, my boxing fam we’ve got some good stuff on tap, not like… well, never mind. Has Willie Monroe forgotten that GGG damn near decapitated his ass at the Forum? Now, he’s threatening to stop GGG in a rematch. Manny won’t be fighting Horn in a rematch. Smart move, leave that brute alone, Manny.
