I really wish , that morons like ; ” deepwaterz ” , would just stick to offering us their opinions on boxing ( lame as they are ), and not venturing out into complete unknown to them territories , like history , or geography .Posted March 1, 2014 9:36 am
eric@ no I don’t hate America, I’ve been there too, nice people. You’re just making all Americans look like idiots here while strengthening the bad stereotypes.Posted February 28, 2014 4:29 pm
anonymous. you sound like one of them new labour mp”s.Posted February 28, 2014 4:04 pm
eric- I guess I pooped on the floor and you inadvertently stepped on it. Thank you for drawing attention away from me! Cheers mate.Posted February 28, 2014 10:57 am
Are the Ukrainians Russians or are they just Ukrainians… even Russians and Ukrainians are debating that still. I think a minority of Ukrainians would say they are not Russians.Posted February 28, 2014 8:07 am
@eric lol you do know that Ukrainian and Russian are different languages right? That should be enough proof right there..Posted February 28, 2014 12:44 am
Ummm yes I’m sure you will. You can’t even spell insult. Instead, apparently when you are offended, someone is giving you a great big cuddle and insulating you. Also you being a so-called college graduate cannot spell different, yep see that, there is an ‘e’ in the middle. Do you have an issue with the letter ‘e’ as it is missing from your spelling of ‘completely’. Oops and there it is again, try ‘douche’. Don’t boast about your intellectual qualifications and go on to make a 6 year olds grammatical error. I guess Geography, History and English weren’t your best subjects. Enlighten us in some Mathematics please so we can have another laugh.Posted February 28, 2014 12:36 am
Anonymous with all do respect to you aswell sir, if Ireland changes it’s name the people are still Irish.
If all Americans moved and Nigerian s moved here it would still be America with African inhabitants.
My descendant s are from Europe but I was born in America, I’m America.
Those dildo said Americans can’t name 3 country’s, I can name 50 country’s off the top of my head right now and all I need is south America and Africa, don’t even need eastern/western Europe/Asia all the way toaAustralia or the Caribbean to do it.
I may be a crazy mother but I aint stupid.
You and all the other people posting have stupid people in your country’s aswell.Posted February 27, 2014 9:17 pm
Ambassador I drive the short bus, I’ll pick you up at 7am don’t be late again.Posted February 27, 2014 9:07 pm
There’s a big diffrence asto what Imy question is, and your comparative analogy.
I’m asking how changing the name of land changes who someone is.
Your saying a diffrent nationality of people moving to a diffrent land , changes the country.
Two completly diffrent thing’s.
I’m certain I could ask you multiply geography/goverment questions about America you can’t answer off the top of your head then call you stupid, but i’m not a douch.
Your ego exceed s your knowledge.
You had two choices, educating me or insulating me, you chosen the latter.Posted February 27, 2014 9:05 pm
@eric… With all do respect Eric with your logic since the original white Americans came from England and other parts of Europe are they just Englishman and other European countries under a different flag? … There’s a reason all post soviet union countries hate Russia more then you will understand… So dont disrespect someone like that… Its like calling all Asians Chinese its bad taste my friend and an argument you won’t win…Posted February 27, 2014 8:45 pm
Meant to say “writes for a living”

I’m getting Mexican takeout tonight, hopefully I will be able to speak fluently in Spanish after my meal. Tomorrow I’ll get Chinese food and brush up on that language aswell.Posted February 27, 2014 6:42 pm
Some of you folks from other country’s need to chill a bit lol, wow.
It is true however that American media doesn’t cover world news like other country’s leaving Americans less likely to be up on issues on the world stage.
Im a college graduate, and did well, and I enjoy geography but not to the level you do apparently.
I see you hate for Americans shines very bright.Posted February 27, 2014 6:20 pm
I knew it was the soviet union at one time d.I.c.k,. I didn’t want to get into a history lesson just had a simple question, you want to completly complicate thing’s and be a douch bag.Posted February 27, 2014 6:09 pm
Ambassador, who’s trying to educate anyone on world geography ??
jeez, they’re stupid. It wasn’t hard to guess eric is american. No one else would write garbage like that.
By the way eric, it was called Soviet Union, and more news to you numbskull, Russia is planning to build strategic military bases all over the world and right into your neighborhood too!Posted February 27, 2014 6:06 pm
Detroit is a french word but everybody that lives in Detroit isn’t french.
To bad I didn’t get an answer, a ligit answer to what I thought was a ligit question.Posted February 27, 2014 6:02 pm
This is a hilarious discussion. Americans trying to educate the world on Geography. I am impressed they have actually named 3 other countries in the world so far. Passport is a fictional word for Americans especially Andre Ward.Posted February 27, 2014 5:59 pm
Ze, no America has never broken into separate country’s.
eric@ Didn’t USA break into smaller parts somewhere in the recent history? I mean more than half of the people in the southern and western states of the USA are originally from Mexico aren’t they? and you have places like Los Angeles, San Diego etc..Mexican names. So basically that makes you a Mexican am I right? at least if you are from San Antonio for example, you are technically a Mexican.Posted February 27, 2014 5:47 pm
Hidalg0- It has nothing to DO with what you DO for a living. Being a SISSY has to DO with your mentality. Anyone who passes on an opportunity to move UP in their chosen profession has a SISSYFIED mentality….and I didn’t call Russell Jr. that. I SAID that IF he passes on his title shot then he IS that. SO go take a READING class.Posted February 27, 2014 4:41 pm
Farm boxer, didn’t Russia break up into a few smaller county’s at one time in recent history ?
Ukrain… people are are technically russian are they not.
I’m mean if Mexico split into two country’s the people would still be originally Mexicans under a diffrent flag, right ? Or wrongPosted February 27, 2014 3:58 pm
Red- Perhaps I was unable to make my original point clear, I really don’t know, it’s pretty clear in my head, but I assure you racism has nothing to do with it, or me. What I meant to say is that an American audience (where the money is) might embrace an Eastern European to the point of making him a superstar, but not three. That’s not racist, that’s a fact.
Ukrainian VL will win by ko. He should KO the traitor Vitlai Klitco who lied in germany for 14 years and is trying to bring the Ukraine to chaos.Posted February 27, 2014 2:34 pm
after reading his comments here srminimo is clearly a racist.Posted February 27, 2014 2:13 pm
“or will he pass on his title shot like a SISSY.”
Wow! the non-boxer continues to call men who fight for a living “sissy.” This is their daily job, and for the ones who don’t do it full time the would if they could and if it was financially feasible. Give them a break Boxtradamus, they have a hard day at work every day.Posted February 27, 2014 12:59 pm
Varnish, thank you for bringing me down to earth (it was not my intention to insult Lomachenko’s nationality, by the way). Juanma didn’t have the speed, the defense, the conditioning or the smarts to be an elite fighter, and Salido exposed that. This kid seems to have all those things and speed especially gives Salido problems. But the little I’ve seen from him, he still makes some amateurish mistakes, like falling in with his head when he comes in and he doesn’t seem to be a one punch KO type puncher. So if Salido can hang around for 6-8 rounds (and he’s done so against the likes of García, Juanma, Gamboa…), we could definitely find out if Lomachenko has any flaws of his own.Posted February 27, 2014 11:55 am
Racial insults and national pride aside, does anyone give Salido a chance in this fight? He destroyed Juanma when he looked like the next big thingPosted February 27, 2014 11:44 am

your ridiculous immature insult says everything about you. I’d tell you to grow up but I don’t think you’re capable of it you loser.Posted February 27, 2014 10:05 am
Anonymous- Big words from behind a keyboard. And what a demonstration of true intellect. Your inability to understand what I meant speaks for itself. As well as your blind denial. BTW, I’m not American, you are, gringo huele bicho. Me cago en la chocha de la madre que te parió. Cabrón.Posted February 27, 2014 8:53 am
“@ Anonymous… You need to realize that for Americans, they’re all Russians, my man.”
I’m American and I know Lomachenko is from the Ukraine not Russia. Just because you’re thick and ignorant that doesn’t mean everyone from the US is the same as you. But by all means, take pride in your stupidity, it clearly suits down to the ground.Posted February 27, 2014 7:52 am
OH. MY apologies to Russell Jr. He turned Pro at 20 yrs old and Lomachenko turned Pro at 25. Also Russell Jr is the mandatory for the WINNER of Lomachenko and Salido. SO time to see if Russell Jr is ready to step UP to the Big leagues or will he pass on his title shot like a SISSY.Posted February 27, 2014 2:09 am
Lomachenko has MUCH more heart than Gary Russell Jr. I APPLAUD him on that!!Posted February 27, 2014 1:46 am
Lomachenko is Ukrainian, not Russian……………
It so appears that Laurence Cole will be the referee, I would never allow him to be a ref in any fight I was in. Cole is awful, one of the worst referees living today, if not the worst. Judges? The appear to be a bunch of idiots…………
Lomachenko can win this fight, but what about all the pressure? He might need a lot of stamina, could go 12 rounds, then it might not, but with Cole as ref you never know.Posted February 27, 2014 1:07 am
@ Anonymous… You need to realize that for Americans, they’re all Russians, my man.Posted February 27, 2014 12:26 am
@ sirminimo …. You should go back to hischool and learn your countries buddy..Posted February 27, 2014 12:11 am
If this kid were American, I would seriously doubt they would be matching him with a guy as rugged and heavy handed as Salido so fast (no matter how good he is). Especially since he hasn’t had his chin checked. But the kid is Russian and the reality is that America is not going to have three Russian boxing superstars, and there are PLENTY of candidates for the spot. So sweet uncle Bob has decided to speed up the process and the kid is happy to oblige. What’s next, Donaire? Welcome to USA Lomachenko, watch out for the speed bumps.Posted February 27, 2014 12:04 am
Lomachenko has only 4 rounds of professional experience.
Why not fight every two weeks for 6 months — to get a lot of rounds in? Get the feel of the pro game.
Go on a barnstroming tour rather than go straight for a title shot. But maybe he really doesn’t need it. Certainly he doesn’t for this fight — but maybe the next one.Posted February 26, 2014 11:11 pm
“I have being an underdog all my professional career …”
Being??? oops! LOLPosted February 26, 2014 8:57 pm
Solid respect by both fighters for each other is a breath of fresh air. You don’t need to over sell a good match-up, I guess.Posted February 26, 2014 8:51 pm
