He's a dirty fighter who get's gifted home town decisions time in time out, the one time he went to the states he got his ass kicked and than they had to match him up with another average fighter on ESPN Friday Night Fights and he struggled with him.

Anthony Mundine is a elite athlete no doubt but he wasted his prime fighting bums and his biggest win ever was over Danny Green who had to drop alot of weight. By Australian standards Mundine is a great boxer by overall he's a solid fighter who never beat any big names until his last fight against Mosley. The guy struggled with Garth Wood getting KOed cold and squeeking out a win, and Wood is as pathetic as they come he literally has the boxing skills of a average MMA fighter.

Mayweather said he's choosing his opponent "next week."

Yesterday, Amir Khan said he's fighting in May but said he hopes it's Mayweather. I think it's a trick, Khan will probably be on his undercard to build up for a Mayweather-Khan showdown is September in the UK.

Mayweather will probably fight either Danny Garcia or the winner of the Devon Alexander-Shawn Porter or Austin Trout-Erislandy Lara match-up that take place this weekend.

Speaking of this weekend, Showtime has probably put together the two best cards of the year back to back.



This Saturday's card.

Judah-Malignaggi
Alexander-Porter
Trout-Lara
Bika-Dirrell


next Saturday

Broner-Maidana
Thurman-Soto Karass
Santa Cruz-Seda
Shumenov vs. Kovacs
Return or Jermaine Taylor

Trout-Lara would be a main event any other time, but on Saturday it's not even the co-main event,

Wow that would be horrible for Floyd. i guess you can only go down from here after a huge fight with Canelo. HBO has a good card too on Sat, Rigo-Agebeko and Tapia-Kirkland.

Judah-Paulie is only main even by name. Those two are past their best. That card doesn't even look very entertaining. Gonna be a lot of slow paced, tag your it type of fights.

The Showtime card is better, because you don't know who's gonna win. Over at HBO, Rigo will win, Kirkland will win and Macklin will most def win. Kirkland-Tapia will be just like Ward-Rodriguez.

Lara/Trout is a toss up and it will be no tagging. Both have been talking hit shit to each other for some months now. Same with Porter/Alexander.

Paulie and Judah they're fighting at home, it's gonna be a war, trust.

Reports are that Pacquiao-Rios did between 450,000 and 500,000 PPV buys? Not very good.

This isn't true. Green has tried playing this card many times as an excuse for the loss. They met at SMW, Green had fought at SMW in most, if not all of the fights prior to the Mundine fight.

Danny was simply outclassed.

Apparently Stevenson wants Hopkins

You look at Stevenson's arsenal and dude has a simple jab and a straight left hand.. Besides that, he got some speed and mobility..

Is that really enough to beat Hopkins? I dont think so.. Hopkins could easily take away that left hand and implement his usual tactics..

How many of you think Hopkins beats him?

After two decades of embarrassing huge punchers, I have no idea why people still talk about Hopkins like some guy is just going to go in there and blast him out with one shot. Hopkins is such a vet, I don't think Stevenson has the know-how to deal with Hopkins' greasy tactics in spite of his age.

Ya Stevenson is pretty basic. He was also once a terrible human being. But has a fearsome reputation because of his power - perfect opportunity for Bhop to take him out and add to his legend.

Personally, I would like to see him fight Pascal.

Felix turned the clock back. When big money is involved, this guy shows up haha. He dislocated Barkers hip and man handled him. K.O in the 2nd round, 20th title fight. 4 time champ.
