Good job making the boxing thread again.
That p4p ring ranking imo is horrible... American boxers need to get their stuff together.
Thinking about checking the Theatre for Crawford. Lundy's so lame tho
^ Do it.
I'm going to Andre Ward's fight on March 26th :blush:
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.
Thurman had to pull out vs Porter due to injuries suffered in a car accident.
Damn, that sucks, heard it's only postponed though, and he will get to train again in a few weeks.
@HIGHNESS Right. Hopefully it isn't postponed for long. Algieri/Spence is official for 4/16. Who you guys got?
@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.
Porter going through with an unpaid exhibition for his fans on the original date for the Thurman fight is a classy move
@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.
@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.
@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
"He must not know I'm AB, I don't need no change!"
Wasn't intending on going but I'm getting tickets for Ward's fight. I'm more excited for the undercard.
