I'm tempted to put in a bet now. But I think people's Mayweather hate can drop that number lower between now and fight night (which means more money for me).


kik, If I were a betting man I'd bet PacMan. I have a feeling he's going to hand MoneyMay his first loss. It won't count on his won loss professional record it will on his legacy. Pac ain't gonna be halfstepping. I believe this fight is happening when I hear the bell.


I have a friend who never fails to tell me, how much $ he's made in his life. Just by betting on Mayweather to win his fights. And he said he made the most $ on the first Pacman fight. Cause people were making the same argument you are now.

If something happened 50 times in a row. And I can get anywhere close to 50% profit. On betting on it happening a 51st time. I'm gonna take that bet.

Exibition boxing is just that, EXIBITION. It's entertainment. Do any really expect to see a KO using 16oz gloves? Mike and Jake are going to make millions with little risk.

I'm in a quandary. I think the fight is at 5:00 and the Lakers start at 5:30. I hope the fight is at 4:30 Eastern.

Ryan Garcia did a Muhammada Ali he SHOCKED DA WORLD! He almost knocked Haney out. Haney had never been down in his career. SCORECARD How DeLuca came up with a draw after 3 knockdowns shows why judges/judging is controversial. VIDEO

Ryan looked like he's in a different league. If Tank hits Haney with some of the shots Ryan did, Haney is going to get slept.

I think Ryan was something like a +600 underdog. Man some people made some nice coin last night.

First fight I was shocked by the result in years.

Everyone, including myself, thought Ryan Garcia had lost his GD marbles but it turns out that was a masterclass in selling the fight. My interest went up ten fold in the build up to the fight.

Ref saved Haney from being stopped several times. Dude 100% had money on Haney.

One major problem with boxing, which is why I gave up on the sport entirely, is the results rarely match what you see. If you watched a fight on mute and didn't know anything about the fighters or judges, your eyes would tell you one thing. Once you turn the sound on and then learn about the scorecards, you're wondering if it's all just a joke.

A few years ago, I was up late one night and a replay of the Mayweather / De La Hoya fight was on. Everyone was asleep so I had the sound on really low and I just watched the action. DLH won the match. You can't convince me otherwise. However, when you heard the results and where the judges came in on the scoring, it felt more like WWE than an honest-to-God boxing match. The sport is a clownshow.

People disregard Garcia because he says some wild stuff. He probably has some level of CTE already. He's got a screw loose. But he can fight/box with the best of them.

Star boxer Ryan Garcia tested positive for the performance-enhancing substance Ostarine the day before and the day of his upset win over Devin Haney last month, per a Voluntary Anti-Doping Association letter sent to all parties Wednesday and obtained by ESPN.

The urine samples were collected prior to the fight, but the results weren't known until later.

Garcia has 10 days to request that his B-sample be tested. Garcia's A-sample also screened positive for 19-Norandrosterone, but its presence is unconfirmed until further lab analysis.

Quote:
"Everybody knows that I don't cheat," Garcia said in a video posted on X. "Never taken a steroid. ... I don't even know where to get steroids. ... I barely take supplements. Big lies, I beat his ass."


Quote:
Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions said in a statement that they are working with Garcia's team to "determine how this finding came to be."

"Ryan has put out multiple statements denying knowingly using any banned substances -- and we believe him," Golden Boy said in its statement.

WOW!! The way Garcia fought using PEDS may be true. Can't wait for the results. If it's proven he was on PEDS will they revoke his win with a DQ? Will there be a rematch?

Ostarine is a selective androgen receptor modulator that attaches to proteins in the body and effectively tells muscles to grow. It is used to aid performance by helping athletes build muscle mass and enhance their rate of fat loss and also to increase stamina and recovery ability


Canelo Álvarez 60 2 2 39 KOs 0 KOs vs. Jaime Munguia 43 0 0 34 KOs 0 KOs Saturday in Vegas.

Canelo was on FirstTake this morning. SAS asked him about a fight with David Benavidez. I may have misunderstood his answer. I thought I heard him say "He don't want ta fight." I think Canelo is the one who doesn't want to fight.

I fell asleep around the 5th round. Canelo was winning but Jamie was holding his own. My IPTV will have the full fight sometime soon.

EDIT; I watch the fight this morning. Canelo was in charge almost the entirety. Jamie held his own and fought back for 12. He can hold his head up. Good fight.

Loma's back. His hand speed and combinations were Loma like. He scored an 11th round TKO with body shots. Kambosos was in a lot of pain. You don't see the kind of body shots like those delivered by Vasiliy often. They were vicious.

I missed the fight. Viewers seem to agree pretty unanimously that Fury lost the fight. Fury is claiming political motivations, that the judges gave the fight away due to the war in Ukraine. Fury did break Usyks’ jaw though, sending him straight to the hospital after the fight.

What I saw:

Quote:
Rds 1-2: Usyk came out strong and won the first 2 rds

Rds 3-6: Fury took control of the fight winning 4 straight rds. He hurt Usyk. Usyk looked tired and beaten.

Rd 7: I couldn’t decide who won this round but Usyk did turn it around.

Rd 8: Usyk won this rd and started getting in good shots

Rd 9: this is when the fight was over. Usyk rocked Fury and Fury was literally saved by the ref n the bell.

Rds 10-12: it was pretty much over to me by now but some say Fury still had a chance. Not really sure who won these rounds.
