Maybe the Pope will tell him to do the right thing and fight Gennady Golovkin

Sergio is an outstanding fighter and human being! This is really cool.

Perhaps he’s gone to the Vatican to get help from the Pope for when he eventually has to face you know who? Only god can help him once he gets in that ring!!
I hear Mayweather has agreed to fight Golovkin, he wants $50 million and a seventy five foot ring.

Wisdom 9, 17-18

Solomon realizes that wisdom is a gift from God

“Thinking thus within myself, and reflecting in my heart that there is immortality in kinship with Wisdom … and good pleasure in her friendship … and unfailing riches in the works of her hand … and that in frequenting her society there is prudence … and fair renown in sharing her discourses. I went about seeking her for my own.”

Revelation 21:8 ESV / 62 helpful votes

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, the wicked and foul sodomites who ingest @nus blood and bath in Negro’s urine, the ginger sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Hamster you’re an idiot.., Because YOU don’t believe in God you count anybody who puts faith in what you call a “hoobly goobly supercreature” a fool. You’re attitude is badly self deluded.

The majority of adult humans believe in God, and that includes most of the greatest scientists and Nobel Prize winners in physics, medicine, literature, and chemistry. Many of them were polled on this question and most are believers. Having the majority opinion doesn’t make anyone right—but it does mean that viewpoint can’t be dismissed without objective study.

A few great thinkers don’t believe in God, but most all of them are tolerant of other people’s beliefs and arguments. You don’t come to truth by believing you know it all, or by having a closed mind.

Anonymous – agree Caneo vs Rosado would be a great fight..

Posted October 9, 2013 12:23 pm

Most 160lbs fighters weigh in close to 180. Canelo isnt some freakishly big LMW.

Pretty much everyone boils down to make weight. Victor Ortiz weighed the same against Floyd as Canelo did, and that was at WW

Canelo vs Rosado would be awesome.

Posted October 9, 2013 10:10 am 


Public Enemy

So if Canelo could fight a 165lb fighter why won’t he fight the other 154lb’ers like Cuban Lara, Rosado or the 160 Quillin, GGG?? Shouldn’t be a problem for Cinnabuns..

Look up youtube if you dont believe me. The HBO broadcast had Lopez weigh in at 165,and Canelo at 164

Revelation 2:21–23

I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works, and I will strike her children dead and cut off their hooves and drown them in @nus blood. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works

Josesito Lopez actually outweighed Canelo the night they fought.

Hamster I’m in perfect mental and physical health.. You’re not.. You’re messed up.. What would God have against boxing you moron? It’s a contact sport. There’s a small risk to it. But the Church and every Pope has always deemed it morally acceptable. Some Popes have been boxing fans. I know priests who are boxing fans.

Boxing has taken thousands of kids off the street and given them purpose and opportunity. Not every kid has a family who can put him through business school or law school. I know a dozen ex-boxers who live within 50 miles of me who own nice houses in nice neighborhoods that they could afford because of Boxing. It doesn’t pay everybody as good as pro football or baseball can pay, but a boxer can have a day job. Juan Manuel Marquez has had a day job as an accountant for 20 years.

I agree. Martinez is an Argentinian, and they are all cheats like Maradona. Well except for Matthysse – but that name is clearly of Dutch origin, and the Dutch are good hardworking hard-drinking protestants unlike the sneaky incense snuffing papist hispanics.

They are still crying over the Falklands like a load of little babies.
Their whole nation is a colony and they are crying about one hundred of miles away from them.

No. NO SIR I say. Now give Martin MUrray his world title.

I think it’s GREAT! Maybe some of Pope Francis’s character will rub off on Martinez, who’s presently a JERK! And yes, I AM serious.

I hate SREDMOND too.

He is always praying to me how he wants to be more like Will Smith.

I can`t help you man I am not a miracle worker.

Well I am but that is TOO MUCH MIRACLE even for me. Try praying to Buddha instead.

I hate boxing and boxing fans are all a bunch of cnuts.

Especially TARK.

I will smite him when I have finished listening to people praying for a cure to their cancer, and ignoring them.

God was an advanced Alien who came down to speak with the ignorant natives couple thousand years ago and based on the last conversation I had with him he states Cotto will kick Martinez ass.

“God is in favour of boxing”……WHOAH WHOAH lets all listen up and gather around Father TARK while he preaches the gospel Yessir.

He found Gods will on a couple of golden tablets yes he did, and he read those tablets, yes he did praise the Lord.

TARK you are a crazy old man with your pants on inside out.

Go shout at a lawnmower.

I`d rather see Martinez meet Golovkin.

Just because Pope Francis rides around on a bus doesn`t change the fact that all Catholic clergy are paedoscum enablers.

Tark we’ve read your OPINION concerning boxing, now show us in the Bible where boxing is approved by God. We ALL know cheating is wrong – thats a NO BRAINER! Show us where boxing is good and approved by God in Scripture! You like boxing so you’ll come up with every conceavable reason for it to stand…..again, show us where…..NOT in Tark 16:32 – which does not nor will ever exist.

Posted October 8, 2013 9:32 pm

What God does NOT approve of are the MargaCheato’s… the Eric Morales’s… the Andre Berto’s… and the Lamont Peterson’s of the world.

Khan lost against Pederson, but it is always referred as a loss, Khan lost two in a row, he did not, Peterson was a ped cheat ffs.

Nino Benvenuti was special …

Posted October 8, 2013 8:06 pm

Nino Benvenuti had a private audience with the Pope… I think you have to ask for it and each case is considered.

TARK

Boxer says.., “Boxing involves a lot of gambling and two men risking their lives for money, I doubt that our lord and savior is a fan of that.”

God is in favor of Boxing because it’s honest work and making use of God given talents which we all have … and we are guided to our vocation. For some it’s being an engineer or politician, for some it’s a boxer.

What God does NOT approve of are the MargaCheato’s… the Eric Morales’s… the Andre Berto’s… and the Lamont Peterson’s of the world… Those who cheat and corrupt the process, whether it’s a boxer or a Wall Street investment banker … Where gambling is legal, it could be God’s calling for a person to make his living that way.

God doesn’t call people to lie and cheat others — but that won’t stop them. We all have free wills to choose where we’re going.

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

To those who might think otherwise the pope isn’t sent by god, god sent us his own son, I’m a huge fan of the sport but the reality is that it involves a lot of gambling and two men risking their lives for money, I doubt that our lord and savior is a fan of that!

I am a Catholic and a huge fan of the Pope and of Martinez. I am glad that they will meet.

Ward should get mobile as well, visit other countries, which he didn’t do in the super six.

Francis “The Pope” by KO in round 1. After that he will face the Son of God. I hope Ward is ready for this fight, it’ll be like he will be facing his father!

Posted October 8, 2013 4:58 pm

Sergio should also speak about cowardice seeing as he’s ducking GGG like a chicken!

Would be pretty cool if he KO’s the pope though… nice right hook to the jaw
