Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

Okay, whatever you say Ivan Drago… LOL.

BTW… When a reporter asked Arguello if he intended to fight Duran he said, “NO… Are you trying to get me killed???”

Fighters say stuff like this to get publicity… Froch was thinking of the gate and TV viewers when he said, “If I have to KILL Kessler I’ll DO it.”

I remember Duran shouting at Alexis Arguello in a crowded airport.. “I’M GOING TO KILL YOU.” Duran shouted in both in English and Spanish, just in case any media present didn’t understand what he was saying.. I think he might have fought AA in a fist fight right there — just because it would have hyped up a big fight.

So I take Carson’s comments as trying to hype the fight… Promoters are always telling telling fighters… “You’ve got to talk the fight up and do some interviews.. Tell the media you’re going to knock him dead–knock his brains out.. I’m the only one selling a fight between 2 guys who can’t get arrested.”

Jones – if you lose by wide UD or TKO you lose by wide UD or TKO. Don’t write cheques ur ass can’t cash.

As a fighter you might make some “off color comments” but, to say something like that is pretty low life, I don’t know if he thought that would make him sound tougher, it didn’t, to true boxing fans he just sounded like someone without much or any class.

Carson is a good guy. I’ve known him since he was in the amateurs and he is dedicated to the sport. He’s no street thug. But, no boxer should make these statements to sell a fight.

BTW, Exiled Yank, it was Ali/Frazier I.

“After Ali Frazier 3 (I think it was 3, possibly 2), it was rumored Joe died and Ali was ready to retire then and there in the dressing room.” That’s pretty much correct, Exiled Yank. Joe was rushed to the hospital with high blood pressure. Ali was told that Joe might die but Ali didn’t know why Joe was taken to the hospital. He thought it was because of injuries from the fight but it wasn’t. Anyways, Ali said he’d never fight again if Joe died.

It was a joke. Not meant to be taken literally.

I dont take it seriously …. how can quoting Ivan Drago be taken as anything other than a joke.

That’s gutter talk from Jones, and Ithe media, including ESB should treat it as such.

It’s one thing for a fighter to say they are willing to die, something else if they say they could care less about killing their opponent. After Ali Frazier 3 (I think it was 3, possibly 2), it was rumored Joe died and Ali was ready to retire then and there in the dressing room.

Whereas Jones has fought twice – drawing with “little known” Dean Byrne and stopping Travis Hartman. Hartman has won 12 and lost 17 to date. So, Michael – your point is…..?
