Titopa, “haymaker” is slang for a powerful punch that knocks the crap out of someone. It doesn’t have to be any specific kind of punch. Haymaker just means it was delivered with great force, and the recipient of one often ends up being KOd.

Posted August 28, 2013 12:08 am 


Titopa

Hidalgo – A haymaker that was perfectly timed? The definition of a haymaker is a wildly thrown punch with the intention of knocking someone out…Gonzalez threw that punch with pin point accuracy and timing, there was NOTHING “haymaker” about it, it was one of the best left hooks I’ve EVER seen, I was astonished that Mares even got up from it, it sounded as though someone hit a heavy bag with a bat.

The Problem I see for Mares is that he looked very Muscular compared to Gonzalez but he was shorter then Gonzalez. Which means he can’t go up too much further because as we saw he was just not strong enough to deal with Gonzalez.. against much bigger stronger guys with skills he’d be in serious trouble. He may have to drop to 122lbs. 126lbs or higher are going to be very difficult for him.

I’m backing Mares to come back stronger for this experience. Anyone can be caught cold early doors, its happened to many a great fighter and in my mind Mares is exactly that.

Hidalgo

“I think everybody fighting Mares from now on is going to check that chin quick n hard to see if they can repeat.”

I don’t think so Big Al. That first left hook was a haymaker punch that was perfectly timed and perfectly executed. Mares f’d up and that’s all there is to it. Gonzalez suckered him then knocked him out. Mares won’t let that happen again.

Posted August 27, 2013 1:40 am 


Big Al

I think everybody fighting Mares from now on is going to check that chin quick n hard to see if they can repeat. sometimes boxers get better after a loss because they learn from it, but others who get KOd suddenly become easier to KO from that point on. Let’s see where the kid goes from here, but I think his opponents are going to be sharpshooting for that chin. Darchinyan wobbled him, Morel gave him a harder time than anyone expected, and even De Leon was slugging him pretty good before the end. And now this.

“Of COURSE I DID. I usually DO.”

No, I was referring to your comment “not much to brag about.” Actually, there’s nothing to brag about. You are the only one on these boards that brags and you always brag about you. You’re nothing.

TITOPA, you may be overreacting to Gonzalez’s win. remember, he was recently defeated by Ponce, lost to Vasquez, and even managed to lose to Penalosa. don’t get me wrong. i’ve always been a big fan of Gonzalez and he’s put together respectable winning streaks but i would not assume an automatic win v. Mares in a rematch. in fact, if you’re a fight-fan like myself, i’m looking forward to a trilogy. fortunately, with Manny* NOT being one of the primary players, we won’t have to wait Eight (8) F’n Years for them to complete it.

Titopa

The Mad Scientist – What? What does race even have to do with it? I don’t understand. I’m talking about ANY and EVERY fighter who’s been BLITZED!!! That HAS to be hard to come back from, especially when you’re the favorite and yet you get stopped in one round, Chad Dawson is another guy, how will he bounce back? If at all. That’s what I’m referring to, Donaire wasn’t stopped so this has NOTHING to do with him, I also question Manny’s come back, but then again, look who they matched him with, someone who won’t hide…that will only HELP his mindset.

The Mad Scientist – Hatton was stopped in 5 minutes against Pacquiao, what ever happened to him? Oh yeah, it ruined his career. Not saying it will do the same to Mares, but you never know, I just feel his mindset will be MUCH different if he were to step back into the ring with Gonzalez, when you’re BLOWN away like that, it HAS TO mess with you mentally, the fear of getting hit again may just make him a different fighter.

Posted August 26, 2013 12:51 pm 


Titopa

The Mad Scientist – I was referring to a rematch (for Mares) against Gonzalez, I never mentioned Pacquiao OR Donaire, so, why are you bringing them up? Plus, Pacquiao was doing GREAT until he was stopped and Donaire was simply outboxed. Mares was BLOWN AWAY in less than 3 minutes…there’s a HUGE difference in their mind set.

Posted August 26, 2013 12:49 pm 


The Mad Scientist

Titopa why don’t you share with us what Pacquiao and Donaire’s mind set is at this point now the one got schooled and other ktfo cold..will Pac relive the KO he suffered from Marquez and fight scared once Brandon clocks him with a good one, or does that rule only apply to mexican fighters for ya..Lol!

Posted August 26, 2013 11:56 am 


Titopa

Hecdog – Sometimes, styles make fights, I think Mares loses to Gonzalez in a rematch as well…too much power for someone like Mares, Mares doesn’t mind getting hit and Gonzalez PROVED to possess one punch KO power, Mares will relive the KO once he steps back in the ring with Gonzalez, he’ll be fighting with fear and he’ll try not to get hit, which means he’ll probably lose a boxing match….cause if he tries to assert himself, Gonzalez will remind him “who’s boss”.

(lol) Nope. that wasn’t me. i usually leave my “bomb-ass haina” at home for the fights but I know who you’re talking about IF it wasn’t DLH who was also wearing a white or cream sports coat. we were actually sitting in the final row before the floor. can you believe they still make you walk to the top instead of just letting you purchase from the bar counter just 10 feet away(?!). felt like medieval England down there. anyway, they were freebies from a camarada who happens to be a ticket-broker. I actually prefer sitting higher up, at a about ring level, where i can see All of the action. otherwise, between the ropes, ring-posts, and people standing and jumping up, it’s easy to miss a big punch or the final flurry, which we almost did. we stopped by the Showtime booth as well. had to restrain myself from shouting something at that Foolio Kenney. would’ve liked to talk shop with Paulie who i think does an excellent job behind the mic. anyway, solid but all-too brief action, but still worth the trip to see Gonzalez finally win the big bout.

Mares got caught cold. He’s the better alll around fighter, and in a rematch, he should win by KO. This is boxing, and everything that can happen always does. Someone should have taught him how to tie up or hold until he gets his brains back together. Mares blew the opportunity for a great match up between himself and Santa Cruz. Jhonny won’t get past Mares in a rematch, Rigondeaux or Donaire. Good for Jhonny though, he is a class act person and hopefully he makes some good money while he has the title, which should loseif he fights the guys I mentioned.

Peej, I think you were right the first time. The fight was stopped at 2:55 of the first round, not 2:05. And like I said before I agree with you that Ref Reiss should have continued the count because there was so little time left in the round. Had Mares made it through the count, he would have had a full minute to recuperate and recompose himself. Still, I about flew out of my chair when Gonzalez landed that first left hook. Neighbors probably thought I was beating my wife what with all my shouts of surprise! LMAO!

He still deserved the count. He’ll he has earned that count. What would if been the problem counting to 8?

Peej, I don’t know about your assessment of Mares’ condition. His eyes looked crossed after the first knockdown and he struggled to get up; he didn’t just bounce right back to his feet like it never happened. The dude was spaced out.

Gonzalez is an excellent boxer-puncher who was overdue for a big win as sudden and unexpected as his big losses. the better fighter did win and it’s a glorious one for Gonzalez whose paid his dues. Mares will definitely be back. as he said “I didn’t enter boxing to remain undefeated. I entered boxing to fight the best”. that’s been the theme to his ascent and temporary fall. can’t wait to watch him get back on track and in the ring with another top-notch opponent. that’s how Abner does it.

the sound of Santa Cruz’s bodyshots were making everyone ringside cringe with empathy for Terrazas who simply couldn’t gain Leo’s respect. this was a mugging of a pretty tough fighter in his own right “El Terremoto” simply shook him to his foundations and never really had a chance. brutally sweet win for Santa Cruz.

And let me correct myself from my earlier post, I stated that there was only 5 seconds left in the round, I thought Lennon Jr said at 2:55 seconds, I just read that it was 2:05 seconds. So if that is correct I was wrong about the time and the minute he would of had to recover. Still doesn’t change the fact that he should of got the count. Look at Bradley against Ruslan he was out so many times. But they let him keep fighting.

Posted August 25, 2013 4:31 pm 


PEEJ

It got waved off at the count of 3 when Mares was actually attempting to stand until the ref waived it off. So he would of still been able to get the standing 8. And lets not forget they always tell fighters to stay down till 7 or so and then stand up to get all your wits back. Not that that was what Mares was doing but still that goes to our theory of only getting the standing 8 when your standing. He should of still gotten a count and he definitely deserved a count. All this he saved Mares is ridiculous. This is the fight game and in no way do fighters want to lose in that fashion. What did he really save Mares from stopping at 3 when he could of counted to 8 or if he stood up as he was doing or just counted him out at 10?

Posted August 25, 2013 4:29 pm 


1-2

The 1st knock down the ref gave Mares all kinds of time after the count. The ref made the right call after the 2nd knock down in stopping it. Gonzalez landed 3-4 brutal shots on a seriously hurt fighter.

Posted August 25, 2013 4:27 pm

PEEJ you have to be standing to get a standing 8 count-the kid was done, he will be back-this is what great fighters do, they challenge the best, if they lose they learn from it and come back-Mares will be back-peace

Posted August 25, 2013 4:26 pm

Ref should of gave a standing 8 count. If he was still hurt or unfit to continue that would be different. The look he had when he was sitting on the stool was one of I can’t believe the stopped it, I was still able to go on, I can’t believe I lost, this sucks. He didn’t look hurt sitting on the stool. There is a reason that they give a standing 8 count or count to 10 when a fighter has been knocked down.

Posted August 25, 2013 4:23 pm

No way RIGO takes Gonzalez out in 3, I am more then sure he would beat Jhonny but not in three, as for the stoppage, it was right and fair, does not matter how much time was left, ref’s job to protect the fighter, time keepers job to keep time-I see a rematch maybe in December- still in shock over this one-peace

Who has actually ever just walked over Gonzalez? Ponce couldn’t do it. And I don’t know if he could get through 3 rounds with Rigo. Not to mention they are in 2 different weight classes. And who knows how Rigo would act if he got caught with that same punch Mares got hit with. Not like Rigo can’t be knocked down or be hurt.

Mares has already stated before losing this fight that he does not care if he loses. So in no way do I think he went into this fight thinking that he thought he was never going to lose. He says he just wants to give the fans a good fight. I give props to Mares because he has fought some pretty damn good fights and he has not had any give me for a long while. Something Donaire doesn’t do.

Posted August 25, 2013 3:41 pm

Good point about the refs but things will never change. Mares was no.doubt hurt but was quickly getting up an would have survived the round. So many times guys have come off the floor to comeback an win the ref took that chance away by not doing a 10 count.

Posted August 25, 2013 3:34 pm

Mares was out cold. First mistake not holding and taking the dumb route of fighting back. Second, mistake thinking he is supposed to win every fight just because he is Abner Mares. Boxers get careless when they become big names. This is why Mayweather have not lost in many years. He picks the right fights and right fighters for his style. Mares tough he can beat any boxer and goes and picks someone he used to help prepared for fights. Homie had already lost the first round, before the fight Plus NACHO just to trained Mares BIG MISTAKE.Be like the P4P KING take easy fights and fighters who fit your style.Long live the King.

So what. What is complaining going to do? We have seen people complain over and over again with no results. He is friendly with Gonzalez. Pac wasn’t complaining when he lost to Bradley. He just said the people saw what they saw and the judges saw what they saw. But yet there are a lot of people who feel that was a bad decision. Like I said there is a reason there is a 10 count. He was on his way to standing up and he could of gotten an 8 count. Then if he was in no postition to continue then he could of stopped the fight. If that is the case then they just need to do away with the count and just let the ref decide if they are able to continue or not. We have a fighter being gracious in defeat like Trout was and letting the winner have his moment and yet people just go along with that. That is like complaining about a foul. Once the ref calls it they are not going to go back and change it.

Posted August 25, 2013 2:06 pm

PEEJ – The ref was staring in Mares’ eyes and he didn’t like what he saw, it’s that simple, he has the best view in the house at that moment and he thought Mares had enough! The stoppage was justifiable, no one’s complaining, not even Mares!

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

Wow, what an upset! I have no problem with that stoppage whatsoever — and neither did any of the Showtime commentators, including Paulie M. Mares himself didn’t even really complain about the stoppage. In fact, he said that he respected the ref’s decision and was fine with it.

IMO… Mares was totally out of it and would’ve definitely been knocked down again or KTFO if he beat a 10-count after the second knock down.

Mares looked SMALL next to Gonzales, and IMO he should go back down to 122lbs — if he can still make weight. Mikey Garcia would destroy both Mares and Gonzalez at FW. Real talk.

Posted August 25, 2013 1:15 pm

Your perspective is fine, Peej. I just feel the ref saw a defeated fighter. The ref probably didn’t like what he saw when he looked in Mares eyes. I know I didn’t like what I saw through the television screen.

Posted August 25, 2013 12:55 pm 


PEEJ

Like I said there is a count for a reason. Let him get up, see if he can walk and not stumble. See if he can respond. Which right away he told the ref, I am ok. There is a reason for the 10 count. Not too stop at 4. It is to count to 10 or at least the standing 8 count.

I think the ref seen it in his eyes that he was hurt. Remember the ref is right there staring at him and an experienced ref knows when the fighter is done. Plus, if you were in the ref’s position I think you’d rather be safe than sorry. You’d hate to see a final, and preventable, blow doing permanent damage — that would be hard to live with knowing you were the one who decided the fight could continue. Think about that.

Posted August 25, 2013 12:44 pm 


PEEJ

Ok I understand that, but at least the ref could of done was count to 8 for the standing 8 count to determine if he was ok. If he wasn’t then he could of stopped it and Mares wouldn’t of taken another blow. He was getting up, the ref had only counted to 3 or 4. There was still plenty of time to clear his head not to mention the round was about to be over. In my mind that is a terrible stoppage. That is why we have a count in boxing.

Posted August 25, 2013 12:23 pm 


Patrick2

Mares did a Chad Dawson. Like he wasn’t fully focused (he didn’t seem to be fully warmed up — not much sweat on him at the opening bell) and got caught. As for the stoppage, Mares was seriously buzzed. Perhaps he could have survived the round, though even with only 8 seconds left I think Gonzalez would have been able to put him down again. So I think it was good call by the ref. I’d much rather see a fighter not get seriously hurt and be able to fight another day. Mares will be back.

Posted August 25, 2013 12:20 pm 


Titopa

PEEJ – Marquez wasn’t nearly that bad, he was merely sat on his ass a few times, Mares went down like they chopped him in half, his eyes rolled back in his head and he didn’t know where he was until the ref waved it off, then he said “I’m good”, as Gonzalez embraced him Mares was staring into space, he had no clue what was happening. He was done! He needed help getting up and even on his stool he looked OUT OF IT!!! I didn’t want to see him take another blow

Posted August 25, 2013 12:09 pm 


PEEJ

I wasn’t going for Mares, I picked Mares because I really didn’t think Gonzalez had a lot left in the tank. But in no way does me picking Mares have any effect on how I feel. The fight was definitely stopped too soon. There is a reason there is a 10 count. Mares was getting up or at least attempting to and told the ref he was alright as soon as he waived it off. He could of at least let him stand up, seen if he could walk, see if he was wobbly, oh and count to 10.

Posted August 25, 2013 12:00 pm 


PEEJ

knockdowns are about of boxing. If that is the case then there should be a rule stating if you get knocked down twice in a round then the fight will be stopped. Look what happened in the first Pac vs Marquez fight. If that fight was stopped we would of never had th3 other fights.

PEEJ – If you were going for Gonzalez you wouldn’t be complaining, you clearly wanted Mares to win, I did too, but c’mon man, there’s NO weight to an argument that “the fight was stopped too soon”, I want to see someone use this as an example of that, you’ll be laughed at! Mares was getting up, but his eyes said it all, my mom (who knows nothing about boxing) was yelling “it’s over, it’s over, look at his eyes”….why did Mares say the ref asked him what round it was? Did I miss that convo cause the ref only asked if he was okay and if he wanted to continue, that tells you that Mares had ZERO recollection of that happened, that alone shows you how bad he was!

Posted August 25, 2013 11:53 am 


Love-the-Sport

Fight was stopped too quickly.

But the ref has the power to make a decision and protect the fighters.

If you don’t want that to happen, don’t get knocked down.

Mares got knocked down twice on big punches including the huge left hook (knockdown 1) and a series of big punches including a left hook followed by an overhand right knocking his head back as he was going down (knockdown 2).

It looked life the ref only counted to four on the 2nd knockdown — so I thought the fight was stopped too quickly — but no one should complain. Mares was hurt.

Titopia, still he was getting up and he had only reched the count of 3. That stuff needs to stop, there is a 10 coun’t for a reason. Its not like he got up and stumbled a round. He was getting up. And not to mention the round was about to be over. I understand that the ref has the final say but really they need to train all the refs to be the same. It is terrible you have one ref that will let a fight continue and then another ref stopping it to soon and that is what happened in this case. Stopped to soon

Posted August 25, 2013 11:06 am 


PEEJ

Exactly. Mares was not looking ahead to Donaire, Cruz or Rigo. Donaire and Rigo fights will never get made until the leave Top Rank. I think Rigo might leave but not Donaire. And I think Cruz is a little too small for Mares. Mares is looking pretty filled out.

Posted August 25, 2013 11:04 am 


Titopa

PEEJ – there’s a ten count, sure, but the ref is ultimately the man who makes the call at his discretion, if he feels the man can’t continue, then the man can’t continue! I’m a huge fan of Mares, but he was out man, did you see his face after the ref stopped it? His pupils were dilated and he looked to be on BAD shape, 1 minute isn’t enough time to recover from shots like that, this was a better decision by the ref in terms of Mares’ career, had he let Mares’ continue who know what could’ve happened in round two if Gonzalez were to land another big shot.

Don’t think he was too small he just got caught. It was a good punch that caught him. Ref stopped the fight to soon. I am tired of the refs not counting to 10. That is why there is a 10 count. Gonzalez seemed like he was on his way to a KO victory anyways but still, there was 5 seconds left which ment the round would of been over after the count. Terrible action by the ref. There should be a rematch.
