    we back :smile:

    Good job making the boxing thread again.

    That p4p ring ranking imo is horrible... American boxers need to get their stuff together.


  • Power Users

    Thinking about checking the Theatre for Crawford. Lundy's so lame tho


  • Mod

    ^ Do it.

    I'm going to Andre Ward's fight on March 26th :blush:


  • Power Users

    Yeah, it'll be a last minute call if anything depending on how tickets are looking.

    I've gotta see Ward one of these days, enjoy that!



  • canelo vs khan is intriguing for me, i favoring khan in this fight but for some reason something is telling me Canelo wins this one. Pac man vs bradley is little boring for me considering pac mans age, i feel like bradley will take this one.


  • Power Users

    Thurman had to pull out vs Porter due to injuries suffered in a car accident.


  • Mod

    Damn, that sucks, heard it's only postponed though, and he will get to train again in a few weeks.


  • Power Users

    @HIGHNESS Right. Hopefully it isn't postponed for long. Algieri/Spence is official for 4/16. Who you guys got?


  • Mod

    @nyflyboi718 tough call because Spence is untested, but Algieri isn't an easy fight. I may choose Spence but probably a close to scoring fight decision win.


  • Power Users

    Porter going through with an unpaid exhibition for his fans on the original date for the Thurman fight is a classy move


  • Mod

    @nyflyboi718 heard he was also doing Q&A, it's all going to be on Facebook. I'm happy about this, better than nothing I suppose and it would be a good sparring session before Thurman can announce his resumed training.

    Also, David Lemieux returns with a fight against James Dela Rosa, free on RingTVLive.com 7pm Pacific. He could potentially be Canelo's next opponent if he wins, as opposed to a rumored Maidana clash against Canelo.


  • Power Users

    @HIGHNESS definitely, Porter's been out of the ring for like 9 months, so at least he'll work off some ring rust.

    Fight with Thurman is supposedly rescheduled for a 6/25 date

    @nyflyboi718 so glad the fight is back on, and Porter is taking a fight before so its no excuses.

    Been meaning to talk about Errol's next fight with Chris Algieri. I don't think Errol is in for that tough of a fight. Chris Algieri is perfectly suited for Errol. Errol first real step up, but Chris Algieri imo isn't going to be able to handle Errol.


  • Power Users

    @bilbo07 Definitely man. Along with Spence/Algieri its the fight I'm most excited for this year. I'm hoping the venue either stays in CT, or somewhere on the East Coast, would love to go. But, I have a feeling it'll be moved to Vegas :cry:

    Algieri is scrappy. Don't see it as an easy fight for either. I think it'll be a close fight ending in a split decision

  • Wasn't intending on going but I'm getting tickets for Ward's fight. I'm more excited for the undercard.

    @Radiohead369 Enjoy!
