I am surprised that no one has started this thread yet.

I know this is an MMA website but I bet that there are some Boxing Fans out there.

I just love the sport of fighting in general and I have been raised by boxing.

So in this Thread we can discuss the "Sweet Science"

such as
Past Fights
Upcoming Events
Favorite Fighters
and Historical Figures in the Sport


Because like MMA in the US, Boxing started out illegal. But where it took MMA less than 25 years to gain the General populations approval, It took boxing over 100 years.

Discuss and have fun.

My TV says the show ends at 1:30 am eastern time.  So they probably won't start until at least 11-11:30 or so.

Thanks AnAlias. I'll probably look at 10 or so to see if Martinez or Canelo are on yet. Probably gonna watch Martinez fight over the Canelo fight.

I must say, while I don't usually like Mauro, he is bringing a certain energy to the broadcast that is often lacking when I watch boxing.

Meh. I'm not gonna crap on the stoppage. Maidana was lighting him up and Karass was just covering up, he wasn't fighting back. He may have been able to take more punishment, but I won't ***** about Bayless' reffing on that one. Could've let it go to see if he was gonna recover, but letting it go on too much longer wouldn't have been good either.

I'd say it's better to be safe instead of sorry on the stoppage.

Did anyone else notice.....

When Soto-Karas got dropped, De La Hoya, who is sitting cage side, face-palmed on camera.  After that they sat some really tall guy in front of him so you can't see him cageside anymore. lol

I wonder if Showtime is going to start giving KO of the night bonuses on their MMA cards as well.

Damn Martinez/Beltran are going at it. Very close fight...both guys swinging with reckless intent.
