TARK, I am not S.Redmond. Don’t even know who that dude is. Your powers of deduction and judgement are even poorer than your so-called knowledge of the beautiful sport of boxing. Cool. Call me all the names under the sun if you so wish, but its good for you to hoist yourself on by your own petard. FYI I don’t hero worship anyone, but your analogies are so poor it’s not even worth reading your b.s. You set your calibrations of fighters like a corrupt World body official to suit whatever mood you are in that day and lie and back track over what you say.
TARK, THE QUACK!Posted April 5, 2014 5:23 am
Anon/Sredmond…, YOu are simply an ATI i.e. all-time-idiot.
I have never built Trout up. I pointed out that he dominated Cotto as thoroughly as Floyd did.. That’s simply the truth, I pointed out often that he was a light hitter.
I don’t hero worship Wilder. I said DW needed rounds badly and was poorly matched…. Danny Garcia wasn’t one of my favorites either. I always pointed out that Danny doesn’t have a jab. I compared him unfavorably to Mikey Garcia… Canelo I said wouldn’t reach his peak for 7 years and said that he dosen’t have the jab Cotto has.
I always said Holmes was the number 2 heavyweight ever.
If I say anything nice about a contemporary boxer, it doesn’t mean I’m hero worshiping them. You’re a stupid asshat like I said.
I criticize boxers from every generation… Unlike you, who’s got his snout up the rear ends of Hearns, Duran, Leonard, Hagler, Robinson, and Ali.Posted April 5, 2014 2:41 am
TARK, the only myth is that you are or were something special in boxing. Your evil agenda to strip the glory from ATG fighters Hagler, Hearns, Benitez, Ali, SRR and so many more is well documented.
You, TARK are the biggest DUCKER out there!Posted April 2, 2014 8:06 pm
I don’t bend facts… I believe there’s a lot of myths out there… and I try to shed a little light on them.
Some of the old timers compiled impressive records — because they were fighting quite a few cans who they wouldn’t hire as sparring partners.
Sometimes it backfired.. Such as Robinson fighting Ralph Jones after the man compiled 5 straight losses… Jones looked a lot less dangerous than he actually was, but his fighting style was murder on Robinson.
BTW.., Check the won/loss record of Floyd’s opponents vs Robinson’s… Maybe 25 of Robinson’s 1st 100 opponents were ligitimate matchups. The rest were record padding.Posted April 2, 2014 6:07 pm
TARK.. I agree that Kovalev IS the real deal. I just think you bend the facts whenever it fits…

One judge giving Ali 4 rounds is sad, but Ali still lost the fight..Posted April 1, 2014 5:44 pm
Frazier never really beat Ali… He would have beat him today with the 10-point system and the 2-point round. With the knockdown round… and the 11th round where he had Ali hurt and going.
But Ali did more damage. He landed many more punches, and won 8 rounds of that fight, which was scored on straight rounds system with no 2-point rounds… To me, it was a political statement — because Ali was an anti-war hero and disliked by the establishment at the time. One judge gave Ali only 4 rounds … That was sad.Posted April 1, 2014 4:53 pm
None of those things were inconsistent Goose…
You can be a dangerous puncher and not be able to defend yourself well… i.e. Seth Mitchell and Darnell Boone
Foreman could crush a little short guy who couldn’t box because he’s bigger, stronger, faster, and tougher.
Nathan Clevery could be an undefeated World Champion and still be a punching bag for somebody as great as Sergei Kovalev … in fact Cleverly stopped Hopkins last opponent—and B-Hop said he would stop him but couldn’t because he’s an old man and too damned feeble.
Ali could win 8 rounds against Frazier in 1971… even though he’s getting the sh!t knocked out of him because his defense vs left hooks was terrible…
Foreman could actually defend left hooks better than Ali could… George just couldn’t handle a jab or straight right because his head was immobile.Posted April 1, 2014 4:37 pm
TARK. “Frazier never beat Ali in the first place.”
Yes he did…
TARK.. “Frazier was a wide open walk in hooker … and Foreman couldn’t miss him.. It was the most ridiculous mismatch in Heavyweight History.. George was 5 inches taller… 4 times as strong… had 10 inches in reach on Frazier… It was a horrendous joke.”
What does that have to do with the score of Ali v Frazier 1 TARK?
TARK.. All over the place as usual..Posted April 1, 2014 4:06 pm
Stevenson won’t fight Kovalev. HBO execs reportedly told Main Events Stevenson would find a way to get out of the Kovalev fight over a month ago. They were correct. Run and duck, then try to save face by claiming oh yeah, you’re down to fight.Posted April 1, 2014 3:40 pm
Eventually, Stevenson and Kovalev will fight. Al Haymon is going to avoid the match as long as possible so that his fighter can soak up as much dinero as he can before taking such a high risk fight. Almost everybody seems to pick the Russian to beat A.D. – it should be noted that Kovalev has not met a fighter with the punch-power and hand speed that Stevenson brings to the table. The fact of the matter is that either man is capable of knocking out the other. This really is a toss up fight. Nothing like the one sided Kovalev beatdown so many are making it out to be.Posted April 1, 2014 3:32 pm

TARK, you imbecile most if not all people polled will agree that Joe Frazier beat Ali in their first encounter. You are seriously a sourpuss faced curmudgeon. GTFOH you imbecile.Posted April 1, 2014 8:15 am
TARK is an imbecile. Barkely stopped Hearns in their first fight after taking a hammering for almost all of the fight until he corked out a right hand that decked Hearns as he was going in for the kill and he stopped him moments later!
The Facts says.., “To TARK, Just because fighter (A ) doesn’t knock out fighter (B ) but fighter (C ) knocks out fighter (B ) does not mean that fighter (C ) can beat fighter ( A ) ,,It’s been proven threw out history .Big example ” Ali ” …” Fraizer ” … ” Foreman ”
That’s completely irrelevant because Frazier never beat Ali in the first place.. They scored rounds back then — so you tell me what 8 rounds Frazier won in that 1971 fight.. and he lost their other 2 fights… But it should have been 0-3 for Frazier vs Ali.. He didn’t win ANY of those fights.
Frazier was a wide open walk in hooker … and Foreman couldn’t miss him.. It was the most ridiculous mismatch in Heavyweight History.. George was 5 inches taller… 4 times as strong… had 10 inches in reach on Frazier… It was a horrendous joke.
Frazier was knocked down 6 times in 5 minutes.. He wouldn’t have made a sparring partner for Foreman.
If you match 2 guys who can’t box, the bigger, stronger, faster, and tougher man wins every time… Jimmy Young couldn’t punch—but he had skills.
You’re premise is good… Just because A beats B… B beats C… doesn’t mean C won’t beat A.
A much better example is Roberto Duran beating Iran Barkley… Barkley easily beating Tommy Hearns twice… And Hearns bombing Duran out like he didn’t belong in the same ring … So you can’t necessarily go by wins.
But Kovalev matches up very well with Stevenson. He murders him easily with the jab and straight right. Stevenson gets lost against deft boxer-punchers.. Dawson could box but he couldn’t throw hard.Posted April 1, 2014 1:21 am

Adonis would drop him at least once what would happen after that is anyone’s guess. At least in observing the Agnew fight who presented the same stance and caught him with much less power than AdonisPosted March 31, 2014 10:20 pm
He also got dropped in sparring.Posted March 31, 2014 8:24 pm
Lol! All u dudes are funny. Kovalev got knocked out as an amateur in Russia. He never went to the Olympics for Russia because he won 1 national title in 9 years of trying.

Superman knows it won’t happen. Why do you think he is saying it?.Posted March 31, 2014 4:00 pm
Fighting Hopkins would be a HUGE cherry-pick for AS.
Dawson had no trouble with old timer B-Hop… Adonis put Chad out with the first punch he threw … naturally.
When Stevenson watched Hopkins’ last fight he was looking at lunch. Hopkins couldn’t hurt a guy who punching bag Nathan Cleverly stopped.Posted March 31, 2014 3:31 pm
Funny you say that but yet you don’t say anything about the HBO fighters fighting cherry picked fights that are handed to them by HBO. Stevenson wants to fight Hopkins. How is that cherry picking? This is why you don’t sign long term contracts with HBO or Showtime. That way you are not obligated to fighting on 1 network. But if they offer you crazy money it is very hard to say know. HBO ponied up money and gave additional dates to fighters that didn’t deserve it but they refuse to pay other fighters what they think they are worth. TerriblePosted March 31, 2014 3:07 pm

HBO told Main Events over a month ago that Stevenson would do whatever it took to get out of the Kovalev fight. Clown doesn’t want to fight, he wants to face soft comp at Showtime. Haymen makes money for his fighters but he also emphasizes minimal risk for maximum reward. That means cherry picking and no dangerous fights.Posted March 31, 2014 2:05 pm

I though the low blow warnings after the initial low blow were a joke, agnew kept the shots up and was still warmed, nothing like a good home town cooking ha. The ref is like some kinda clown. Everyone was crying low blows by agnew but we didn’t get one replay of one. Guess agnew was brought in to be the loser so who cares if he had a fair go of it. Another black eye for boxing.Posted March 31, 2014 1:20 pm
Nobody wins when a big fight, a natural matchup, fails to come off. I expect Showtime lured Stevenson first, but will eventually woo Kovalev, as well. Without a big fight, how long will Kovalev stay with HBO? He might well jump ship if Stevenson and/or Hopkins are at Showtime.Posted March 31, 2014 1:05 pm
Again I say Hopkins wins against Stevenson and Kovalev by a borefest non fight UD points spread hugfest. Boring ! Who cares Steveson vs Kovalev is what people want to see 2 KO artist in there.Posted March 31, 2014 10:54 am
Roman lets never forget Hopkins last fight he had the ” kissing ref ” Steve ” pathitic ” Smogger in his pocket. They even both Hopkins and Smogger congratulated each other after the fight. Fixed ref and a fixed fighterPosted March 31, 2014 10:53 am

A nice fight if it ever happensPosted March 31, 2014 8:39 am
If you’re a boxing fan you’ve got to love and respect Kovalev. In the krusher you have a formidable fighter you can decapitate an opponent in a second and crush them in the midsection with a single shot. I was on the fence but now I’m a fan. Adonis has pulled off one the smartest maneuvers in recent memory as he clearly wants no part of the Russian Krusher I wouldn’t either if I were him. It’s going to take a special fighter, a really special fighter to beat him. Ward maybe, but it’s really a long shot. Kovalev is here to stay and maybe a move to the 190 pounds division is where he can find someone to neutralize is advantage in terms of sheer brute force.Posted March 31, 2014 8:26 am

“Bernard Hopkins, now 49, stands no chance against Stevenson, and that fight will likely be a one-sided affair that will have fans shaking their heads wondering why they even bothered thinking Hopkins had a chance”. This writer really has no idea about boxing! Can someone please tell me the last time Bernard Hopkins was stopped? Thats right, never! Stevenson is a half decent fighter but no where near the level of some of the guys Hopkins has come up against. I remember writers like this fearing for Hopkins safety pre the Pavlik fight and having egg on their faces after he schooled him. I’m not saying this would happen against Stevenson but I would say theres no way Stevenosn knockes Hopkins out. He may win an ungly points victory but Hopkins will always be too elusive to be knocked out.Posted March 31, 2014 7:26 am
It’s funny that Adonis does the trash talking after the fight plan falls apart. Although at the moment perhaps he only has a one fight deal with Showtime. But HBO and Al Haymon generally do not do business together. I think some of it is because the top execs at HBO hold a grudge against Al for taking Floyd over to Showtime. If Adonis doesn’t sign a multi fight deal with Showtime and HBO is willing to deal with Haymon at least for one fight then maybe it could still happen. But this is boxing so I doubt it.:)Posted March 31, 2014 3:51 am

Regarding Adonis wanting to fight Mr. Kovolov, They were BOTH promoted by HBO, then Adonis leaves the network and then states he now wants a fight that he himself made impossible by signing with Showtime. Everybody saw it over these last three weeks. He took bigger money on Showtime for less danger. What’s changed my mind about who is more confident is that Adonis asked for a fight after he knew he wouldn’t get it, and didn’t push for it when he had the fight guaranteed within the next 6 months with HBO. That tells me that everybody (Stevenson included now) knows that Kovelov is the best in the light heavyweight division until someone can beat him. Been a while when a fighter caused other fighters to leave an entire network rather than fighting him. Good fight btw, Agnew was good, but not busy enough and should have taken more chances sooner.Posted March 30, 2014 6:55 pm

Glad Kovalev does not speak English very well or else, he would not have said the obvious. Hopefully this does pull Stevenson to fight him. I still don’t see Stevenson being able to beat Kovalev. Stevenson does have the power to KO Kovalev, but he does not have the defense or toughness to withstand Kovalev’s firepower. I see the toughest fight for Kovalev coming from old man Hopkins, mainly because BHop will make it ugly and will land some clean shots but cannot match the work rate of Kovalev.Posted March 30, 2014 6:43 pm
What do you mean now wants Kovalev as if Stevenson hasn’t been wanting him? You necks make me sick always trying to make these bums you have seem like something special.

For some reason, people who post here get much more vociferous about who is “ducking” or “afraid” to fight whom than the actual fights. Until Kovalev fights Stevenson, it is merely a hypothetical matchup. Who cares?Posted March 30, 2014 6:14 pm
Stevenson was NOT signed to HBO, hence him being able to walk away having being offered a BIGGER financial one-fight deal with Showtime.
Stevenson basically has both Networks eating out of his hand and it’s due to basic and competent management skills.

Dawson (a guy who got knocked down 3 times and knocked out by a non-puncher in his previous fight).
Cloud (a guy who everyone saw get beat in his previous two fights, including to Campillo who Kova destroyed in 3).
Bellew (chinny, nearly got kayoed early by domestic fighter Ovil McKenzie).

The fight between Kovalev and Stevenson could take place if Showtime and HBO use rational thought rather than be motivated by childish emotions or greed. A contract and an agreement could be reached where both sides make $. I do not agree with Hopkins not having a chance against Stevenson.
