i just finished watching bradley-provodnikov. wow, what a fight. the best action title fight i've seen in years. and i agree with score cards, especially with harold lederman's. bradley really impressed me with the way he was still throwing punches back while he was barely conscious. had he fought pacquiao the way he did with provodnikov, nobody would have questioned if he still managed to win.

-----

i wasn't really interested with mayweather - guerero at first, but i guess its the next best winnable fight left for floyd. i'd rather watch him fight guerero than alexander/malignaggi. i also want to see him fight the winner of canelo-trout..but i guess he wont fight them or at least demand them to fight at welterweight.

----

i'm excited for donaire - rigo, but i have a feeling it may end up like the bradley-alexander stinker.

---

rios & alvarado are both overrated, but they are fun to watch. winner vs provodnikov please.

Doesn't get any better than this.

Also, this is like WCW vs WWF. WWF is at Showtime and WCW on HBO. Mayweather is like the nWo. He defected from HBO.
You got it wrong Showtime is WCW. Aging stars Hall and Nash defected to WCW for a brief 2 year run while WWF. In the meantime, WWF was making adjustments and breeding new future talent, while their counterparts got old. In the end, they (WWF) took control of both organizations.

HBO will be fine.

Damn...nobody I know wants to go to this Donaire fight. I'm gonna have to force people! Would it be weird to go to a fight alone?

I would bring my girl but there is a 25% chance she could ruin it.

Go alone man. There is nothing wrong with that.

I usually go to sporting events with friends but if I can't find anyone who knows/enjoys the sport than I would rather go alone. Anyone else will talk rubbish the whole time and ruin it.

Same here. i would often go see pay per view boxing fights at some sport bar by myself because most of my friends dont care about it and are more into MMA. I had no problem with it

yea, I think that is the right move. I'm gonna pitch it again this Saturday and then I'm just gonna buy a ticket. I've never been to a boxing match before and tickets are 35/75/150/300. That is definitely a steal. Good thing about going alone is we don't have to compromise on what ticket to get. I wanna be as close as possible to watch Donaire get knocked out!

There's a better chance than that.

Anytime you get 2 counterpunchers against one another, it usually doesn't produce fireworks. It should be an interesting fight moreso than exciting. I'm really curious how Rigo deals with Donaire's speed and power.

Refresh my memory, that was basically Cordoba chasing Rigondeaux around the ring right?

If so, I agree. Once Rigo tastes Donaire's power, I expect him to box very carefully.
