Two judges had the first fight even going into the round Donaire scored the brutal KO… But Donaire won every round… Those judges were blind.

I must agree here. There is something very odd with this picture. “Big” George Foreman was in his boxing days 193cm tall and in his 90’s days aboyt 125KG (250lbs). Foreman is about now n65 so I guess the age have made his body to shrink a few cm. Oh well he will always be “Big” George Foreman (76-5-0 KO’s 68), 1968 Olympic gold medalist and 2-time undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and the oldest heavyweight world champion in history of boxing at age 45.

AFICIONADO, Vic was on his way to the UD i anticipated but wasn’t able to maintain a tight defense for 10 rounds. otherwise, he was simply outfighting Donaire before the final dramatic TKO. my prediction was unfolding as anticipated until your prediction ultimately proved correct. they don’t call it the “theater of the unexpected” for nothing.

Vic is just too shop-worn to beat a younger, hard hitting, energetic fighter…he’s gonna do OK for a few rounds but the inevitable will happen in the second half of the fight. Nonito by stoppage.

Donaire is a wait and see style of fighting. He loves to wait, hopefully darchinian box instead of brawl.

Only Teddy Atlas is worse than those guys.

Fight Aficionado, te tumbo predicted a similar thing when Ponce was fighting Mares. He and SREDMOND only get it right when they predict Floyd to win and you know nobody gets that wrong.

Sure we expect Donaire to win, maybe by UD and maybe by another KO. But say what you want about Darchinyan, one thing he’s proven over the years is that you should never count him out and as long as he is in the fight, he’s in the fight. I remember years back, after the Donaire loss, everyone figured Mijares would school him and we all know what happened there. I’ll be rooting for Vic to pull the upset, but I expect a re-dedicated Donaire to outbox him and maybe catch him again in spectacular fashion.

Tumbo are you predicting a Vic win because you want him to win or because you legit think that’s how it goes down. I don’t see that at all. I figure Donaire by TKO somewhat easily. Vic’s a tough dude I’ve always enjoyed but he’s too old and has blown up way out of his natural weight division. In short an empty shell. I don’t gloat saying this.

Chick on the right is obv implants and a plastic reconstructed face. How many times did she suck off Arum to get this gig? Chick on the left is banging though. Her titays might even be natural. I’d need to motorboat them to test it though.

What are the girls wearing on their feet? Looks like socks wrapped in duct tape.

Te tumbo, you like Old Yank and SREDMOND, are a good poster who makes a lot of sense but you suck, big time predicting fights. Stop embarrassing yourself.

George looks lean & young & healthy while the other big opponents of his era are either dead-Norton, Frazier-or almost dead-Ali, who looks a 100 years old. In life you never know……long live George!!

Darchinyan is an unorthodox but skilled boxer-Puncher. he may actually be able to employ some elements of what Rigo did to bedevil the KO-puncher persona that Donaire frequently defaults too. i can’t help but think he’s determined to equal his previous win over Darchinyan, which will only create opportunities for Vic in the only remaining fight that matters to him. there will be KDs; there will be blood; resulting in a dramatic “W” for Darchinyan by UD.

Donaire is a bit overrated. Take him off the p4p top 10 list please.

I love Vic, man. He is the classic example of win, lose or draw, the people will come to see you fight because you’re exciting. Ward and Rigondaeux haven’t learned that lesson.

Contrary to opinion a KO loss does not destroy a career.

rooting for evil vic

You could potentially argue that being KO’d by Donaire was only a setback but Darchinyan’s career still reached it’s full p4p potential. Had he won that fight (or won a rematch) then he would have been the favorite, not the underdog against p4p top 5er Mijares a few years later; regarless though, he easily won that fight. Vic’s poor record is only evidence of the fact that as he got older he continued to fight the very best and that he’s probably still continuing a career that should be over by now. Overall however, look at what he’s won and you can’t say that Donaire really derailed anything.

Nonito is down as 5ft 5in on Box Recs and Foreman 6ft 31/2in

LOL…It’s the angle in which the photo was shot…funny stuff

Christ, Foreman looks very short compared to these tiny guys
I thought Forman was about 6ft 3 inches tall
He is always portrayed as a big Heavyweight

Posted November 9, 2013 8:53 am 


Has George Foreman shrunk…… or is he very far away…?
