Oh My God!!! James Kirkland is Officially Back!!! Make it Canelo vs. Kirkland. That's going to be another exciting fight.

Damn. That sort of fight needs to be seen by more people than just the HBO BAD audience.

I'd been waiting for this fight for a couple of years and it finally happened. I don't know how Kirkland survived that first round, let alone knock Angulo down. Wow.

These two were really made for one another. I'm not sure that Kirkland is necessarily "back" in the context that he is an elite fighter that can beat technically sound boxers with his pressure and intensity, but he is "back" in terms of being a guy who can make brawlers wilt... Even tough SOBs like Angulo.

I credit Ann Wolfe.

Amazing fight. I wish Angulo wouldn't have shot his wad in the first round, though. I would have liked to have seen more than two minutes of him at his best. Unfortunately, he felt that he could get James out of there and went for broke. He ended up totally drained and, although he stayed upright, he never posed much of a threat to Kirkland after the first 120 seconds.

I'd like to see these guys go at it again, except with BOTH guys at maximum potential for at least a couple of rounds.

Loved that Angulo-Kirkland fight! That is something I would rather watch and PAY for. Nobody wants to watch guys like Chad Dawson or Andre Ward stink it up for 12 rounds. I want to see Kirkland vs Ishida II. All great fighters should avenge their losses.

i always thought money is a baaaaddd matchup for pac. he just picks people apart in the ring with his movement and counter punching constantly keeping the other fighter off balance and people seem to think that manny with his straight forward volume punch style would beat floyd.

People's hatred of Money completely clouds their logic and common sense. It would not be a close fight

how man times in floyds last few fights the opponent was billed as "the One" to beat floyd becuase of whatever reason....ding....ding....ding... the CLINIC begins and floyd completely picks apart the other fighter, oscar,jmm,hatton and mosley.
