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.

Yep.

Won't be missing this. No way, no how. Don;t give a **** what MMA card it runs into conflict with.

I think Canelo takes the rematch by decision, assuming he fought clean the first time. If he was dirty and isn't on whatever he was on for the rematch, then GGG will take it. Golovkin should have gotten the nod the first time around IMO, another Byrd robbery.

Also, I'll be pulling for GG because Canelo is an egomaniacal PED ape and Golovkin is a cool, humble dude.

Apparently Manny Pacquiao vs Adrien Broner is in the works for January 12th or 19th, 2019.

Your thoughts on this potential fight?

Past Prime Pac (39) coming off a decent win over Matthysse facing a faded stock of Broner, should be interesting an a definite test to see if the loser still continues to fight. Cause at this point with Crawford and Spence Jr ruling the roost, it will show if Broner (29) can ever "comeback" to being at the elite hype level he was at before Maidana (Name wise, a win over the legendary Pacquiao could read good for casuals). Where as Pacquiao is just looking for those good sized purses. 

At this point, even after the Draw that AB had with Jessie Vargas (imo Vargas won) Broner can basically can try to talk his way in whatever fight he can get and majority of people would still watch to see him lose. (In regards to the narrative that AB tries to push as the heel)

Broner is a very good  boxer who loses to to the elites and probably always will. Prime Pacquiao would have dismantled him effortlessly, but this won't be a prime pac fight. Manny struggled with Horn (I think he was ripped off, should have gotten the nod, especially considering all the fouls he was on the end of) and his legs are close to being shot. Broner will win by decision, and I won't care. It was good to see him get a finish against matthysse, but lucas has been around the block a few times and has was KO'ed fairly recently before the pac fight if memory serves. Broner isn't anywhere near as shopworn.

The pacman is just cashing cheques these days.That's fine, he's earned it. Pretty sure if Broner wins they will try and set up Bud vs Broner in the not too distant future. Pretty easy meal for Crawford. Broner will avoid ESJ like the plague, and I won't blame him. He'd get his head punched over the moon. That's not say Crawford can't don the same, but ESJ would be a violent career-ending murder.

Good points. And Matthysse has only been knocked out twice. Pacquiao and Postol in 2015 and in that fight he was outboxed immensely. To me Lucas has only lost to Garcia, Postol, and Pacquiao truly. With Alexander and Judah being the response of home-cooking (in my opinion). I'd still think he would give AB problems truly. He still has one of the highest KO percentages for a reason.

I see it turing out like the Maidana fight for AB honestly. Maidana's output was high and he is not as close to being as fast as Pac was and currently is (barely, but still a good amount quicker than Marcos). I could see this as an overwhelming assault in the middle rounds I'd say 4-5, and might get the finish in round 7-8. If AB does escape those rounds, I agree, he has a better chance of picking up a decision.

But then again, I am optimistic for a great Pacquiao resurgence, but much like a lot of boxing greats, father time is always undefeated, and if the fight goes ahead with the time, Pacquiao would be under 2 weeks until 40 years old and this would be his 70th fight. Got to be realistic with myself and know this fight will be closer than expect.

And true about Crawford and Spence Jr. Although, for both of them I would put my money on AB losing against them both.

@Mexi Crawford and ESJ wwould both absolutely smoke Broner. But ESJ might kill him in the ring.

Also spence Jr vs Brooks was a beautiful fight, possibly the best of 2018 IMO.
