That makes alot is sense: Something that aids in increasing hand eye coordination is of no benefit to a fighter in the ring, none….

I kinda have to agree with ” The Facts ! ” about the speed bag Myth ,,i also really feel that the speed bag has no benefit at all to a fighter ,,I don’t bother at all enforcing any fighter at my gym to do the speed bag . It’s fun to watch some one that is very good at it ,but other wise ,for me it has no rewards at all when a fighter is in the ring .

Agreed, hitting the speed bag helps develop and maintain good hand eye coordination. It also aids in shoulder muscle development. As far as what it does for hand eye coordination, it can be a benifit in several sports.

Joseph Herron: “This fight is going to be made for July 12th in LA…I’m certain of it.”

Thanks for the confirmation and the heads-up on the date and location, brother! I’m going to mark it on my Outlook and Google calenders right now. Nice analysis of what Jr. has to do to win this fight. I agree with that for the most part because he’s bigger, slower, and infighting is definitely his strong suit. However, I’m not sure that strategy won’t ultimately play right into 3G’s ability to land power combinations (hooks, uppercuts, body shots) with tremendous force from close range. So far, anybody that’s had the brass to stand right in front of 3G and exchange has paid a terrible price. But if anyone can take his shots and keep coming, it’s Chavez. I have a feeling we’re going to see one guys face, if not both, get badly busted-up and really swollen. I just hope it doesn’t get stopped as a result of a cut from clashing heads. Pure fireworks!!!

BTW…your pronunciation of the Latino fighters’ names is outstanding. Me imagino que tambien hablas espanol.

i can’t imagine the scenario in which Jr. wouldn’t take a mini-showdown v. Golovkin 100% seriously. a win(?) would put him directly in line for serious humiliation (and payday) v. Ward in the near future. the serious payday might also not matter on Jr’s. opponent. that’s how serious a boost a legit “W” over Golovkin would be to Jr’s. career. in fact, he could make some serious money and publicity by just avoiding Ward until somebody else figures him out first. time (if not ring-style) is still on Jr’s. side.

Neither has the greatest defense. Curtis Stevens hit Golovkin. Junior will as well. Will be interesting to see who’s chin is stronger. I would not be surprised at all if Jr. takes this if he actually trains and takes it seriously.

I’m excited about this fight . Golovkin vs Chavez Jr. ,,i really hope that Golovkin has the balls to sign to fight Chavez . every one knows that Chavez really want’s this fight ..The only thing i am worry about is if Chavez face can hold up to all the punishment Golovkin is going to administrate on him ..Chavez has a tendency to swell up during his fights .

The Problem with fighter’s with big power , like Kostya Tszyu and Lucas Matthysse and so on ,, is that when their fights go a little longer then usual and their opponent seems to be weathering the storm ,,these big puncher’s start to panic . I have seen enough fights to know when a fighter starts to feel uncomfortable after his opponent has taken his best shots . And Kostya Tszyu always gave me that impression .

i can’t help but chuckle at how Chavez Jr’s. career-choices continue to make chimps of his detractors and sheer Haters. first he wouldn’t rematch Vanda, which he did. next he would be tested v. Fredo, which he wasn’t. next he would be defeated by Andy Lee, which wasn’t even close. next he would never dare face Martinez, which he did and almost outlasted for a final-round surge that had rivets and bolts flying off of Martinez’s joints and all over the ring before the final bell. next, Jr. wouldn’t rematch Vera, until he did. next Jr. wouldn’t dare challenge and face Golovkin, which he did even before stepping out of the ring following his “W” against Vera. there are a couple of posters who hated wrong for each and every pivotal matchup of Jr’s. career (they know who they are). conversely, “Cheers” to those select ESB few who anticipated correctly each and every time.

Posted March 24, 2014 6:42 pm 


WHAT!?!

DAZANI – All those guys you mentioned skipped through Jnr Welter while Tzsyu was King. So you could say that they were the ones who didn’t want to test themselves against a guy who would fought for the win, instead they took the easy sparring sessions against each other for the big $$$.

And also sometimes sparing is much tougher then the fight itself because there are no refery there , I had 48 fights as an amater but the toughest fights I had in the gym sparing , we use to kill eachother there

Lol ok you really forgot that you said here you never boxed before …
Lol of course you spare after the fight but you don’t hire the best and spared hard , you do it with your buddy to losen up and that a ” friendly sparing”

Posted March 24, 2014 4:55 pm 


PEEJ

You are completely wrong. I have sparred before and as a matter of fact I have sparred with a couple of current fighters. Like it or not I have sparred 2 rounds with Kirkland. Did he whoop me yes but I did. I have also sparred with Randy Gatica who just fought on ESPN. Is he a world beater no but still I sparred with him. He was much lighter at the time. More like 140 to 147. Sorry but you are wrong. Lets see Floyd sparred Spadafora his first day back and went 6 rounds. You could tell it was his first day back. This happens often. So you really have no clue what you are talking about.

Posted March 24, 2014 4:29 pm

Peej -you know absolutely nothing about boxing , you never spared in your life … Sparing especially as a pro with a good paid calibre boxer is done usually at the end of training preparation for a fight and they don’t go soft because it’s suppose to get use to the pace of the fight and that depends on the type of the fight it is .
In this case with Chavez vs ggg soaring you can clearly the tempo of the sparing and difference in the skill level and you don’t need to guess if it was a “friendly sparing” because friendly sparing usually don’t happen between a two highly ranked boxer especially if one of them has a fight coming

Can’t go by what someone did to someone in sparring. Yeah I think GGG beats on Chavez myself. But what happened in sparring is just that, sparring. Where were each at in their training? Was this Chavez first day back, first week back, was he close to a fight? Was GGG close to a fight, this all has an outcome to how the session went. Also were they just working on something. If I am specifically working on a certain punch or slipping shots and I am not throwing my full arsenal then you can’t say well he whooped me in sparring so that is how it is gonna go in a real fight.

Gennady the Great

My friends, GENNADY ‘3G’ GOLOVKIN is a rare refined talent, the likes of which come along maybe a handful of times in a generation…from GOLD Medals and WORLD Championship DOMINATION in the ELITE amateur ranks, the breeding ground for many past greats, to SUSTAINED DOMINANCE and WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP DOMINATION IN THE PROFESSIONAL game…Gennady has acheived it all. With a GLEAMING, UNBEATEN RECORD of 29-0, the WBA & IBO MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPION of the WORLD is a FEARSOME WARRIOR and is certainly not a man to take lightly…He is considered by many esteemed figures in the sport to be the NUMBER 1 MIDDLEWEIGHT IN THE WORLD WITHOUT EXCEPTION, and one of the leading boxers in the sport, P4P, today, AT ANY WEIGHT. Gennady Golovkin, my friends, fears NO ONE, NO MAN, NO OTHER BOXER. Why should he? Gennady is reminiscent of a SUPERHERO, a YOUNG GOD FROM MOUNT OLYMPUS, A COLOSSUS, STRONGER THAN KING KONG and GODZILLA COMBINED, another modern-day GENGHIS KHAN FROM THE STEPPES OF CENTRAL ASIA, Another CONQUEROR who RELENTLESSLY crushes his hapless foes…You see, my people, GENNADY is reminiscent of another Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Captain America, Captain Marvel AND the IRON MAN, no less! GGG IS A LARGER THAN LIFE FIGURE but still humble, still a ‘Man of the People’, A RISING UNIVERSAL SUPERSTAR to those who recognize GREATNESS AND A GLOBAL ICON who travels and boxes ALL OVER THE WORLD and who, accordingly, is admired and respected everywhere. He is a revered AMBASSADOR of the sport therefore. He is also, in fact, a WORLD-ACCLAIMED DAZZLING dominating dancing destroyer, a PEERLESS punishing pugilistic puncher, a FEARLESS ferocious fighting PHENOMENON, a HURRICANE of hurt, a TORNADO of terror, a TSUNAMI of SCINTILLATING SKILLS, a WHIRLING DERVISH of a WHIRLWIND between the four ropes, a CYCLONE of CONCUSSION for his OVERWHELMED OPPONENTS. GGG is a KAZAKH KRUSHER in other words…My knowledgable friends, Gennady ‘3G’ Golovkin, THE FIGHTING LION OF KAZAKHSTAN, IS the REAL DEAL to astute fight observers, and which he will continue to prove as he marches on to CONQUER EVEN MORE WEIGHT CLASSES and EVEN MORE WORTHY men than he has faced already. WHO CAN STOP HIM? CAN ANY MAN from 154lbs to even possibly 175lbs stand up to him?!? IS THERE ANYONE at all? It is very doubtful for GENNADY GOLOVKIN is, of course, THE BEST.

If there is one criticism I would apply to Tszyu it would be that he didn’t test his limits when there was opportunity to do so. Shane Mosley, Oscar De La Hoya, Vernon Forrest, Tito, etc. were all there in the WW division when Tszyu was still healthy and active and yet he didn’t move up. Big Names, Big Fight$, Big Legacy points and he stayed at 140.

I don’t believe that Kostya Tszyu lost his fight against Ricky Hatton because of his age ,, according to ( Dazani ) ,,Kostya Tszyu was indeed a great puncher and Pressure fighter ,but when the table’s were turn on him he would literally quit !!! when Vince Phillips started to turn up the heat on Tszyu ,,Tszyu started to fall apart ..same thing against Hatton ,Tszyu was being backed up and Tszyu started to feel the pressure and quit on his stool ,,Kostya Tszyu a great talent ,BUT !! he really didn’t have a heart .
Posted March 24, 2014 1:03 pm

Hatton himself before the fight came out and discussed why he felt he had the advantage over Tszyu, that being…Age, inactivity, and injury. He fought 9 rounds in 3 years leading up to Hatton. And going into the Hatton fight, it was said that he had already been re-injured.

How many times did he quit? Once. And again, in his last fight when he was 36 years old, inactive, injury prone and to much wear and tear, and didn’t seem to make weight nearly as well.

It’s hard to say he didn’t have heart. Even in the Phillips fight, he did end up getting knocked out on his feet when he had already been taking flush shots all throughout the fight.

Hatton took a slightly different approach with Tszyu: Instead of applying pressure with striking attacks, he went for grappling to wear Tszyu down physically…which was smart because it smothered Tszyu’s own attack and grappling can wear a fighter down quicker.

Is that why GGG did not even want to consider a fight with Lara?? Cause he is so great that even Ward would lose to GGG? Yea ok.

Posted March 24, 2014 1:54 pm 


Hec Dog

GGG is the real deal. Just watch what GGG does to Chavez when they sparred each other. Chavez Jr. is tough, I’ll give him that, but he takes a serious beating at the hands of GGG. I don’t see anyone beating GGG for a long time. Put Ward in there against him, and you’ll see just how great of a fighter GGG is. He trains, acts and does the necessary things a great fighter does. He’s never out of shape, and he stays busy. His great amateur pedigree has prepared him to be a solid all around fighter that can adjust to all styles of fighting, and he has a granite punch and chin. You will never see him tire in a fight. Sergey Kovalev was given a lesson by GGG while the two sparred. And he’s a big big man. Chavez will be tough because he takes a punch well and is a naturally bigger man, but GGG dominates him until the stoppage happens late in the fight if Chavez Jr. steps up to fight him.

Is this fight a done deal ????

This fight is going to be made for July 12th in LA…I’m certain of it.

To win this fight, Chavez has to back up Triple G and fight him on the inside. He can’t out box him and he can’t allow the much faster Golovkin to dictate the pace of the fight.

He has to be first and force the action of the fight. Chavez absolutely must impose his will on Gennady and fight to his strengths. No more of this boxing imposter…he has to do what he does best. Ground and pound on the inside.

It’s the only chance he has to win this fight.

Great show, Joe! Some really good Q & A with Shields and Gogue. Agree with the general assessment that everyone in the world knows Bradley lost to PacMan — and will more than likely lose again.

I also think that Chavez vs. 3G is the type of match that die-hard fans get truly excited about. It’s the only one being discussed that I’d buy on PPV. Both guys want to come forward and pressure, have granite chins, and hit real hard. That’s the recipe for pure fireworks!

IF there is one thing that is different from Tszyu and Martinez at similar stages of their careers it would be….FIRE. I think Martinez still has more of it left than what Tszyu had going into the Hatton fight. And maybe even the division weight since Tszyu didn’t look quite healthy at weigh-ins upon his return while Martinez should still be comfortable at making 160 if he is able to train properly.

YES, it would be incredible if he fought Martinez or GGG at 160, for the MW title, no catch-weights, in September, if all should continue to win.

However, people would still knock him for not having the fight with Manny even though GGG and Martinez are the much harder fights and should propel his legacy way up if he were to win. It just seems its more unlikely for Floyd to fight Manny given all that is in the way (which is on both sides) than a fight with GGG and Martinez.

Hidalgo: “I’m not understanding this post, Joseph. Are you being sarcastically humorous?”

No…I’m being very sincere about the mistake I made on last night’s program and Tark caught it.

I only saw “The Surgeon” fight one time, and it was for Maurmek’s WBO Junior Middleweight title. I remembered the Czech fighter being aggressive and effective when he was able to work his way inside, but I didn’t recall the performance accurately.

I watched it again after TARK pointed out how limited he was and discovered that TARK was right on the money.

So I was merely giving him credit for pointing that out and apologizing to everyone for inaccurately sizing up the little Czech fighter in my prefight scouting report.

Peter is going to kill him in the ring and this is one of the worst cases of cherry picking I’ve seen in quite some time.

Expect that fight to be made later this year if both fighters are successful in their respective summer bouts.

Yes, it says Floyd is sane after all and is smart enough to know his limits based on history than listening to the fans that don’t have to take the same health risks inside the ring.
The reason is that GGG is the MW Champion of the World and is to big for Floyd. At 37, its tough enough to get your body trained to do what you want, and asking him to make more adjustments to fight someone so much bigger (plus the skills and youth) is asking for a lot.

But Floyd has already won championships in five different divisions…he doesn’t have to prove anything at Middleweight. His legacy has was cemented long ago.

But…like Cotto and JMM, wouldn’t it be nice if Floyd actually dared to be great by doing more than what was expected of him?

Like I stated earlier, no one is going to blame or even expect Floyd to compete against a Middleweight title holder. But wouldn’t it be amazing if Floyd surprised everyone by facing Sergio Martinez or Gennady Golovkin?
Posted March 24, 2014 6:01 am

It would be great if he faced a healthy Martinez or GGG but when you take a step back and be realistic about things, sheer size + Talent of those two is enough to shake a sane persons head.

Floyd started his career and won a title at 130 pounds though and only weighs about 149 on fight-night in his WW fights which is what a lot of jrWW have weighed and even LW have weighed (or close to) come fight-night. So how far do you wish to push a 37 year old fighter who isn’t that big?

Did we make the same demands of other past greats?
Not really. Although it may have been that some of them fought in more competitive eras or at least they were all more on par with their competition.
I think it has to do with wanting to see him pushed to his limits and see if that “O” can be taken.

I guess no one is giving Chavez Jr. a chance? Look, GGG is good but seriously he is a pressure fighter, thats it. . Chavez loves going toe to toe and can fight really well on the inside. Chavez is a power puncher also. Should be a good fight, nevertheless. If GGG was more technical and boxed more then I’d give him the nod but he is not. So don’t be so quick to count out JR.

Sergio is not in the business of ducking anyone…I have no idea why people keep stating that Sergio is ducking Triple G. He’s been out due to injury, and within that time frame, Gennady has become a much bigger commodity in the sport.

Expect that fight to be made later this year if both fighters are successful in their respective summer bouts.

What!?! my friend, another comment that had me laughing. GGG will be just fine. This kid is a monster and will not lose for a long long time.

The Facts !

If this fight between Chavez Jr. and Triple GGG gets done ..we could see a war .. two things can happen in this fight ,,, First Chavez is strong enough to stop Golovkin like he did Andy Lee or Golovkin will stop Chavez Jr. by cuts . Because Chavez although can take a hell of a punch ,his face does swell up . i might have to go with Triple GGG by cuts or by stoppage due to Chavez face being to swollen to continue .

TARK: “Herron…, You’re saying Peter Quillin could be flattened by Lukas Konecny??? And BTW that’s pronounced “connects knee.” Nobody has ever heard it pronounced, much less seen this guy fght—he’s unknown by anyone—so you didn’t even try to pronounce it.”

Thank you for the pronunciation, LOL…wasn’t sure how to pronounce it, brother…I shouldn’t have said flattened…that was very, very inaccurate.

When I initially saw him fight for the WBO Junior Middleweight title about a year ago, I remember him being much more competitive.

After watching this again I have to agree with you. Although he was pushed around and outboxed by Maurmek, he did have some success by cutting off the ring and working underneath.

But I don’t think the Czech has enough power or the size to get the respect of Peter Quillin. Although “Kid Chocolate” has a lot of deficiencies when pressured and backed up, there’s no way Peter has any trouble with this guy.

I called this a trap fight, but you’re right…he’s no where near the class of a Mauricio Herrera or most of the fighters Peter has fought over the last few years.

I actually think Dejan Zavek more skill than “The Surgeon” after watching the fight one more time.

Thanks for bringing that up to my attention, and thank you correcting me on this one!!

Apparently Chavez Jr. doesn’t fear Golovkin ,,even after their mismatch sparring session ..Chavez Jr. is the one pushing for this fight . I guess he wasn’t to bother by Golovkin’s power punches in their sparring . I really don’t know how this fight will end ,that’s if Golovkin doesn’t shy away from this fight .

WHAT!?!

Well that’s the end of Golovkin. HecDog has put his stamp of approval (or kiss of death) on him, just like Broner before him getting a beating from Maidana and of course just like Manny before him getting KO’ed by JMM. ;-)

But NO!!!! Quillin will NOT get flattened. Konency is no better than Jan Zavek who you picked to beat Andre Berto. It’s frustrating because this is flagrant cherry picking at it’s worst.. There’s looking under rocks.

Let’s face it Joseph… They picked Konecny for Quillin to keep him away from Gennady Golovkin.. In a way you’re lending credence cherry picking by not denouncing this fight, and by saying Konecny might flatten Quillin … Please don’t do that… and I really don’t think you really intend to do that.

Good show BTW.

I was hoping that GGG stayed at 160, but on the other hand the money is at 168 and people will avoid him at 160 because he is that good.

GGG is the real deal. Just watch what GGG does to Chavez when they sparred each other. Chavez Jr. is tough, I’ll give him that, but he takes a serious beating at the hands of GGG. I don’t see anyone beating GGG for a long time. Put Ward in there against him, and you’ll see just how great of a fighter GGG is. He trains, acts and does the necessary things a great fighter does. He’s never out of shape, and he stays busy. His great amateur pedigree has prepared him to be a solid all around fighter that can adjust to all styles of fighting, and he has a granite punch and chin. You will never see him tire in a fight. Sergey Kovalev was given a lesson by GGG while the two sparred. And he’s a big big man. Chavez will be tough because he takes a punch well and is a naturally bigger man, but GGG dominates him until the stoppage happens late in the fight if Chavez Jr. steps up to fight him.

GGG vs. Chavez jr should make for a great fight. The Winner will have a huge boost in popularity.

I’ll be surprised to see Chavez Jr./GGG. If it happens it’ll should be interesting. Chavez will have a size advantage, but the huge amateur experience GGG will bring will be hard to overcome.

Curtis Stevens would murder Chavez Jr so just what do u think Golovin will do to him?

There are always “potential” super fights when it comes to GGG. Yet he always seems to end up fighting blown up Welters and Jnr Middles or injured ring rusty losers or other champions ruined left overs. Many call-outs have gone unanswered. The hype train is slowing again, better KO another no name to get it rolling again. Choooooo!!!! Choooooooo!!!!
