Bias, one sided journalism

Implying that JMM would be an underdog against Porter is pure idiocy. Porter was Pacquiao’s sparring partner a few years ago, and I am sure that helped his development, but Porter’s development and his win over Alexander don’t say anything about his chances against the supreme Mexican technician with power and timing, JMM. Bradley beat Alexander more convincingly than Porter. Bradley is a better fighter than Porter. Bradley has always had the style to trouble JMM…and used it to beat JMM.

If Bradley got into a fight with JMM, consensus was JMM victory. Fighters that bring the fight to JMM typically end up facedownnnnnn…

Porter is a talented, aggressive, physical fighter. The way he brought the fight to Alexander and Paulie–phenomenal. It was what I expected to see when Maidana fought Alexander, but Maidana did not force the issue like he normally does. I hate Alexander, but I think he has a better shot at beating JMM than Porter. Porter comes in and does so at various angles. This gives JMM opportunities to put the hurt on Porter. Alexander and Paulie may be fine boxers, but they do not have the power JMM brings. Porter will pressure Marquez early and find out JMM brings FAR MORE HEAT than expected. Porter is durable. He would likely last 12 rounds, but I see him getting hurt early and fighting tentatively for the middle and mid-late rounds.

Fighting Aff – fighting Rios and rematching crap decisions like Bradley is also cherrypicking, nevermind fighting 3 fighters a combined 9 times while never fighting TBE over a drug test.

“After knocking him out, the Mexican gave his stance that he never wished to fight Pacquiao again, and refused Pacquiao the rematch the latter was seeking” WRONG. Marquez challenged Pacquiao* to face him in Mexico and Punkuiao* refused. he then attempted to dictate purse-split to Marquez as if it was Marquez who had been brutally DEMOLISHED by a fistful of “Dinamita”. it’s so obvious when a shill or fanboy submits an ESB blog.

My, my, my, he never gives up. Face him in mexico? hahaha tetumbo is breaking his very own stupidity record at an alarming rate. mexico? sheesh! for peanuts and devalued pesos and rotten jalapenos? haha Do you honestly believe that mexico will bring in the numbers that Las vegas brings? LMFAO! This aint about cartels and drug money. Pacman can rake in a ppv no matter what, Marquez can’t. Even purde split? hahaha Even with the KO he scored, Pacman is still without a doubt the a-side. Only a hater like tetumbo believes otherwise. fking troll.

“Paulie Walnuts, it’s “Haymon” not “Heymon.” – No Hildago, it’s Hymen not Haymon. When boxers sign with him they inevitably lose their balls and go into cherry picking mode.

Why the hell should Schaefer’s departure affect Pac and Marquez? Only way it impacts them is if Schaefer sets up shop as a new promoter and has a fighter (Floyd) who is a bigger fight and who also happens to want to fight. No impact.

No word on a suing free for all yet? Show contemplating all Avenues are being discuss. 100 million at risk. LOL

I’m just glad Floyd drop GBP and Top Rank…Floyd is disappearing in the boxing world slowly but surely. His world in boxing is getting smaller and smaller…bad arrogant boxer with no moral!

Not sure about al hamon leaving gbp, as if Richard don’t work with hamonor or show time wil not work with hamon( far shot)

The they have to stay with GBP as GBP has the money to support the even fight and cards.
hamon and Oscar need each other. One got the money and contract with show time part of the 3 party contract, and don’t have the fighters to make it work, and hamon has the fight but show time or HBO will not let him deal directly, beause he has a history of taking over and he has huge networks tv and concerts experince.

“If we assume that all the fighters we think to be Golden Boy signed are indeed Golden Boy signed (something Schaefer said was not necessarily true)” – Pretty sure all the Haymen linked fighters in GBP’s stable will leave as soon as they can. Oscar even admitted he didn’t know how many GBP fighters also had deals with Haymen. It’s pretty substantial.

No! Martinez has never beaten anyone with HOF credentials. He has had the luck of having an era that didn’t have many good fighters. If he beats Miguel Cotto, he beats a guy that was a natural 135 pounder in his prime. He’s an old man in boxing terms, and he’s so much smaller physically. A win for Martinez proves nothing. Yes, he’s a good fighter, but far from being great or a Hall of Famer.

Actually I think Top Rank Fighter vs. GBP Fighters, will happen. ODH has said since the beginning that he was going to put on the best fights. You can’t put on the best fights when you have 2 companies unwilling to work together… sorta like the old WWF vs WCW days. Boxing can’t work like that.

Hopefully when this gets sorted out the fans will actually win. The only ones unwilling to work with Arum are, Maytwitter, Schaefer, Haymon… everyone else is willing to work it out.

i think that Kathy Duva’s lawsuit against Al Heymon will change the face of boxing. We are gonna find that most of GBP’s fighters are actually signed to Al Heymon. I believe while it has been alleged Al Heymon is the Muhammed Ali Act, which dictates a manager can not promote and promoters can not manage. The timing of Richard Schaefer quiting GBP and Ms. Duva lawsuit should make some positive changes to the sport. We need Boxing Business reform.

The only thing that is going to effect this fight is the money. If Marquez thinks the money is right he takes the fight.
