PEEJ – I’ve been a boxing fan for over 15 years, it’s the sport I truly love the most. BUT, I more often then not find myself saying “whaattttt?” when I see who’s fighting who in MMA vs Boxing. To me (as of late) their match-ups are usually more intriguing, but it’s a combat sport so of course you’re gonna get the “has been vs the new comer”, that’s unavoidable and it’s almost necessary in order to gain new MMA fans. Recognizable names vs New names.
Not to mention their cards are STACKED, the top 3 fights can probably carry their own PPV card if promoted properly. They also give a handful of free (Fox) fights throughout the year that are premium channel worthy…they give the fans “fill in” fights if the main event fights end early (KO) and it’s not always controversial like boxing.
Again, I love boxing far more, but MMA is gaining steam in my eyes.Posted June 20, 2014 1:47 pm
I have also had to fight to protect myself in lockdown after the conviction for beating up my girlfriend and penetrating my hamster. Although I won my fights during chow time I sometimes lost the ones in the shower. Luckily I ENJOYED it so there were no real problems.Posted June 20, 2014 10:35 am
How did Broner get in the conversation? Broner is all hype and no substance, he’ll stick around until they put him in with a puncher again and then he’ll take another beating and hopefully fade into oblivion.
One thing we didn’t see much from Algieri in the fight was his left hook. The first time i saw him fight he was flashing the left hook to the head and body in rapid sucession. I guess exchanging hooks with Ruslan in the first round, discouraged that, but he does have a nice left hand, reminded me of another good hooker, Doug DeWitt.Posted June 20, 2014 7:16 am
Sorry but the best do not fight the best in MMA. And if in fact that is the best fighting the best, hahahahahaha. MMA is garbage.Posted June 19, 2014 9:35 pm
I remember ME and a friend of MINE sparred in a Boxing gym around the corner from where I grew UP. The Fight lasted LESS than 10 seconds. I punched him SO hard in the mouth (and I really wasn’t trying to. My power is just uncontrollable) His ENTIRE mouth was bloodied and he QUIT immediately. He ran home. And when I went to knock on his door the next day his Mom told ME that he didn’t want to see me. We use to hang out together all of the time and we haven’t hung out ever since. I guess he didn’t want to be MY friend anymore. MUCH power can DO that to you.Posted June 19, 2014 8:18 pm
I’ve never been defeated and never tested because it takes an all time GREAT to test ME. IF your last name isn’t Klitschko or Haye then you can’t test ME.Posted June 19, 2014 8:12 pm
Peej, I did not intend to start a debate about MMA vs. boxing. I love boxing more than MMA/UFC by light years. My kids love MMA/UFC because it’s like a free for all a la cartoons. Algieri was mentioned by HBO was a former kickboxing champion so technically he is not MMA. Nevertheless, even kickboxers are developing their punching skills closer to the marquis de queensbury. Provo may have had 300 amateur boxing fights but he has never developed great boxing skills in spite of them. Algieri is a better boxer than the supposed boxing-only fighter Provo. I do believe Algieri is a short timer and Provo will return to ESPN FNF now that everyone has figured him out from watching Algieri boxing his ears off. No more debates from me.Posted June 19, 2014 6:45 pm
my problem with MMA is that the BEST of that day fight the BEST of yesterday without clarifying who will be BEST tomorrow(?). no continuity. no consistency. no greatness. just one fight at a time for the sake of watching a fight NOT sustained mastery or greatness.Posted June 19, 2014 6:12 pm
If anything MMA players have to defend strikes better than boxers do… Their gloves are very tiny and they can’t hide behind them. They can be hit with elbows, knees, feet, shins, and forearms. Hammer blows with the edge of the fist, (like you pound on a table) are also legal.
MMA players are extremely wary, because they have to be… Where as boxer wades right in and throws. He’s got big gloves to protect him and he has to throw harder to do damage. Boxing is an art. MMA is closer to actual fighting – although not true fighting.

PEEJ – “MMA fighters have no boxing technique at all”
I couldn’t disagree more.
Over the past few years I’ve grown into a HUGE MMA fan, mainly because, unlike in boxing (mostly), the BEST fight the BEST, and I love that there is only ONE belt / champ per division.
I notice that more and more MMA fighters are becoming better strikers, some even get trained by boxing coaches (GSP) in order to improve their ‘boxing’. One good example of an elite level striker (boxer) is TJ Dillashaw, you’d think he was a boxer turned MMA fighter…his hands are a BEAUTY to watch.Posted June 19, 2014 11:34 am
Yes you need your knees or legs in boxing but that has nothing to do with your chin. Take a look at Rios. Stands basically in one place and blocks and perrys punches with his gloves. Hardly any leg movement at allPosted June 19, 2014 3:51 am
Boxing is much betterPosted June 19, 2014 3:49 am
A boxer who tries MMA is a bum boxer. He’s never been successful, or no longer is. He’s trying something new.
An MMA player who tries boxing is a failure at MMA. He’s never going to be any better at Boxing – because he’s starting from scratch with much bigger gloves, a different stance, and he has to change his whole game.
Seth Mitchell tried Boxing because his knees were shot from playing Football. The problem with that is, you need knees just as much for Boxing as playing football.
You can’t sustain rigorous clinching or hard punching without good strong knees. As soon as you fight anybody good you’re going to get knocked out cold.
We may have seen the last of Seth Mitchell – just like many other ex-football players with bum knees who try Boxing and get clobbered.Posted June 19, 2014 1:41 am

Algieri beat him fair and square. Out boxed him to a well deserved win and belt.Posted June 19, 2014 12:32 am
Sorry but there will be no MMA fighter stepping in the ring with a boxer. No it is not easier for an MMA guy to go boxing than it is for a boxer to go to MMA. They are both difficult. MMA fighters have no boxing technique at all. If an MMA fighter steps in the ring with a B level boxer he is gonna get spanked. Same goes for a boxer stepping in with an MMA fighter. Only difference is a boxer has gone to MMA and has actually won a couple fights. That can’t be said about an MMA fighter going to boxing. Not to mention the boxers that have done it were no longer able to compete in the boxing ring. What does that tell you? lolPosted June 19, 2014 12:06 am
I feared this day would come. With boxers who no longer know the fundamentals and MMA fighters who are getting better with their hands, we were bound to have an MMA guy come to boxing and beating the boxers who were suppose to be masters of their own game. It is easier for a MMA figher to go into boxing than a boxer to learn how to do a proper kick going into MMA. To make matters worse, Provo looked more like an MMA fighter who came to boxing and Algieri loo0ked like he was the guy who had 300 amateur fights and who had the lighter punches. Unbelievable.Posted June 18, 2014 11:32 pm
Tark stop bringing my name up you BTICH. Read your port and read mine. Porter is clearly bigger than Broner, heck he is way bigger than Broner. He also punches way harder than Broner. Dumb broad.Posted June 18, 2014 10:57 pm

CORRECTION…unless both of MY hands ARE broken….Posted June 18, 2014 8:00 pm
I’d NEVER quit unless both of MY hands or broken. As long as I can punch I can retaliate. For every headbutt I’d punch you in the BALLS. YOU would quit before I DO. I know how to fight FIRE with FIRE. I don’t behave like a SISSY. I’m not Alexander or Kessler.Posted June 18, 2014 7:59 pm
Fight Afficionade says.. “Someone at Twitter posted a pic of GGG and Canelo together. Neither had a shirt on as it was apparently after sparring. Was surprised to see Canelo’s slightly taller and looks way bigger.”
But he’s not… GGG is taller than Canelo… Canelo could have been standing on something, so the photo would have to include their feet — and I’m sure it didn’t.Posted June 18, 2014 7:39 pm
Good news and bad new for boxing fans with Algieri.
Good news is that he seems to be really smart, really skilled — this is especially true given that he has only had 20 or so fights and no amateur background.
Bad news is that he has no power and he is kind of boring.
I hope Algieri improves his body attack and maybe can generate some knockouts. He is tall and he would present a problem for Pacquiao because of his reach and height and movement.
Pacquiao would have a hard time doing damage to a guy so tall. I would think Margarito was the tallest Pacquiao opponent too date — but Margarito just stands right there whereas Algieri will be on the move.
I think this is a bad match-up for Pacquiao and probably a boring fight for boxing fans. Another reason why Mayweather is so much better than Pacquiao is that Mayweather would have no problem with Algieri.Posted June 18, 2014 7:06 pm
I root for the underdog so I am glad Algeiri won the fight.
But I did not score it an Algieri win. My score was 6-6 in rounds which means Provodnikov wins because of the 2 knockdowns.
Having said all of that — Provodnikov needs to improve.
It is great that Freddie Roach has elevated Provodnikov and his fighting style and his combinations.
Provodnikov now needs to learn how to box smarter and he needs to learn how to finish.
Most guys who fight Provodnikov will want to stick and move and YES maybe run. Provodnikov needs more variety in his body attack to stop these guys. I have only seen left hooks to the body. He needs more … left jabs to the body, right hands to the body, combinations to the body.
And Provodnikov needs to finish. He has the fight won if he goes to the body hard after the 1st knockdown and then goes to the head.
He seems to be a great student. I hope he continues to improve.Posted June 18, 2014 7:01 pm
“Most people differentiate bigger as larger, rather than taller. A man could be taller than his opponent, who would be considered to be bigger than him.” – True.

Porter is #0 P4P he isn’t beating Manny. And IF he can’t beat Manny he’s NO match for Floyd. Cotto, De la Hoya, Mosley, and Hatton ALL agree with ME on that. Beating Alexander is what Bradley DID before Manny SPANKED him.Posted June 18, 2014 5:32 pm
That’s to answer DappyPosted June 18, 2014 5:19 pm

Btw, Maidana is rapidly improving and peaking since he teamed-up with Garcia. his chopping hooks and expert jab combined to outfight Mayweather, which places him closest to another shot at “Money”. although, i’m certain Maidana would seriously consider any challenges from Pacquiao* or Porter. what’s the hold-up? other than an unearned sense of entitlement to PPV-paydays and prominence?Posted June 18, 2014 4:57 pm
TARK, Malignaggi, Judah, and 1 degree of separation from Maidana gets you a signed “TMT” baseball cap NOT a PPV-shot at erasing Mayweather’s “0”. not even close. ACTUALLY defeating Maidana would get Porter close. has he issued the challenge?Posted June 18, 2014 4:53 pm
You azzholes are lying… I never said Porter wasn’t bigger than Broner… I said he wasn’t “MUCH” bigger… He’s the same height and a few pounds heavier into the ring… big freakin’ deal… PEEJ lied his ass off and claimed he was “much bigger.”
You choose to fight in whatever weight division you fight in… Maidana got a title shot for out-pointing 147-pound champion Adrien Broner. Nobody said, “Broner is too small… That win doesn’t count.”
Porter smashed Paulie Malignaggi who beat Zab Judah … and out-pointed Devon Alexander who beat Marcos Madiana..
WHERE’S PORTER’S SHOT AT FLOYD???? … I guess he’s too tough.Posted June 18, 2014 3:37 pm
Okay my apology to Peej. You are right and I am wrong. They have the same heights but Porter has fought in a higher weight division than Broner did.Posted June 18, 2014 1:46 pm
Gentlemen, one win against a strong, no defense, one dimensional fighter like Ruslan Provodnikov doesn’t all of a sudden make you a star that can take on any of the top contenders or champions. Algieri is a nice kid and deserves all the attention he’s getting. Good for him, hope he makes a lot of money, but if he takes on those top guys or champions, his 15 minutes of fame will be gone. He has nothing special other than guts. His speed is average, power below average, defense below average, boxing skills average and variety of punches good. Guys like Manny Pacquiao, Mikey Garcia, Danny Garcia, Timothy Bradley, Porter, Thurman, Mayweather and many other fighters destroy this Algieri. And I hope he proves me wrong because he’s a likeable young man, but he won’t last with any of these guys i mentioned.Posted June 18, 2014 1:05 pm
Most people differentiate bigger as larger, rather than taller.
Algieri is young and tall, has a chance to beat Pac which is why the fight won’t happen. High risk / low reward for Pac.Posted June 18, 2014 12:32 pm
Porter, is indeed a BIGGER boxer than Broner Tark as usual has begun LYING… Porter boxed as high at MW at least in the amateurs whereas Broner began at 130 boxing smaller guys like DeMarco and Ponce De Leon.. He dropped back to 140 which I think is smart because he looked small in the ring with Paulie and his snap has not carried up to 147 to date.. Tarks blowing Porter something fierce because he stopped Paulie, good win but nothing that says Porter is a future HOF the way Tark would have us believe… Certainly NOT a guy making Floyds radar… Tark is increasingly pathetic..Posted June 18, 2014 9:29 am
Tons of useless posts !!Posted June 18, 2014 8:56 am
PEEJ is correct. Porter used to fight amateur as a super welter and the guys he faced at amateur all fight pro above Welter.
PORTER compiled an astounding amateur record of 276-14. In 2007 he won the World Golden Gloves Championship but at the PanAm Games Shawn was knocked out in the second round by Cuban Emilio Correa. Though he boasts amateur victories over current pro prospects Daniel Jacobs, Demetrius Andrade, Edwin Rodriguez, Shawn Estrada, and Jonathan Nelson, he came up just short in qualifying for the 2008 U.S. Olympics team. Porter is a graduate of Stow-Munroe Falls High School. There he earned all conference his junior and senior year.
Jacobs is MW, Andrade SW and Rodriguez SMWPosted June 18, 2014 6:40 am

Nope Havoc I am the real one. Tark is just getting on my nerves. Gets annoying. He is actually trying to argue the fact that Porter is not bigger than Broner.

Porter started his career at 165 and has fought most of his fights above 147. Broner started his career at 143 and has only fought twice at welter. Once weighing 146 and the other time weighing 144. And now he is back at 140. Dumb idiot.Posted June 18, 2014 12:30 am

Hell NO he’s not “MUCH” bigger you blathering idiot… He simply boxes much better and punches much harder. Porter had the same weight target as Broner when he fought Paulie — he just boxed and punched at a much higher level relative to his height and size.

Manny Pacquiao has all options open. He is without a doubt the most attractive fight for anyone because the world watches every single Manny Pacquiao fight that’s ever taken place. Ped Man Marquez is simply a coward. His excuse for not fighting Manny again is ridiculous. This guy has the most tarnished boxing image in history. Hiring Angel Hereida, Avoiding VADA, gaining bulk and punching like a mule, acne all over the place, roid rages with Hereida while training and not wanting anything to do with a 5th fight because, get this “I like this feeling.” This so laughable for any professional fighter to say. Imagine Ali saying I won’t fight Fraizer again because”I like this feeling.” Imagine Sugar Ray Robinson saying “I won’t fight Lamotta because I like this feeling.” Imagine any fighter saying that dumb excuse knowing he would make more money than he ever has before. Marquez should be ashamed of himself. He now wants, get this $20 million dollars to fight Manny Pacquiao. He doesn’t deserve a thing. He was never a PPV star. He was never Mexico’s favorite fighter. He avoided Rios, Provodnikov, Garcia and others. This guy doesn’t get it. He does not have any power to make any decisions on who he fights because he draws flies. He will be thoroughly tested, which freddie alluded to in a press conference if he fought Manny Pacquiao. Ped Man sure wanted no part of that. Sure was nice to see that Ped Man Marquez was up to his usual questionable self as he made sure there was no testing for the Alvarado fight. Hmm..just how many signs does one need to see that this guy isn’t the real deal? As far as Algieri is concerned, he goes nowhere if he fights any top fighter. He is a decent fighter, but he got some home town cooking, and Provodnikov was a tough nosed fighter, but he always lacked boxing skills and defense so that was no big surprise to me. Algieri will get dismantled in 5 rounds if he fights Manny Pacquiao or any Junior Welterweight or welterweight that is ranked at the top or a champion. He’s one of those Buster Douglass type fighters that was a the right place at the right time, but won’t last but 1 or maybe 2 fights. He’ll be forgotten soon, but good for him for winning a title. Manny Pacquiao is boxing’s lone Super Star that creates excitement and is the Peoples Champion. He is the most important fighter of our life time. He has more variety than any fighter before him or current. He is also the most successful fighter outside the ring. Celebrities go to him to get noticed. Kobe was inspired by Manny and so invented a shoe out of that inspiration. President Obama invited Manny to the White House before inviting some of his own family. TIME Magazine placed Manny on the cover and their stock rose immediately. Manny singing career blossomed like fresh roses in the garden. Congress in the Philippines has earned more respect world wide by the minute once Manny was voted in. Manny’s acting skills have earned him stark reviews from the directors of the silver screen. Manny’s Modeling career keeps growing as he is the most sought after person in the world. Manny’s basketball skills have NBA owners looking to sign him as a coach/player. Manny’s wardrobe keeps people relevant as they buy his clothing constantly. And Manny the Movie is setting all kinds of records due to his popularity. I don’t know what else i cna add to Manny Pacquiao other than he is the only 8 division boxing champion in boxing history. Now tell me who puts people on the map and people in the seats. Manny Pacquiao is boxing, trust me, no one will ever draw like him. Manny doesn’t need boxing, boxing needs Manny. Manny is the best!Posted June 17, 2014 8:42 pm

Broner was trying to kill Paulie too.. AB just doesn’t have that type of ability. He’s got a cross-armed defense that sucks.
Maidana is the first guy he fought who had the ability to to take advantage of his defensive setup.. He got him with arching, chopping rights and left hooks … That’s how you beat that defense.
Marcos gave Floyd problems too… Floyd is just a lot more versatile, and more masterful.Posted June 17, 2014 8:02 pm
PEEJ.., You’re a brainless tincan rattling around STFU IDIOT!!!
Tumbo says… “Styles make fights.”
Boxing ability and punching power also make fights… Porter boxed and punched the piss out of Malignaggi and stopped him very easily.. Paulie was duck soup for him.
Broner couldn’t keep those light punches off his face and settled for a SD. AB is wide open — and that’s why Maidana outpointed him.. I actually think Maidana stops Paulie, but in the late rounds with Paulie’s corner stopping it.Posted June 17, 2014 7:52 pm
You guys are stupids !! Broner did not go after Paulie in the same manner that Porter did !!!!!
Porter went in there to KILL Paulie while Broner was just concerned about making Paulie look less than him which are two different things

“That should give even you a sense that Porter is the better fighter” NO. common opponents are only an indication of how future matchups might unfold, e.g., Maidana could have a very difficult time v.

TARK said, “. . . the last man to give Marquez a boxing lesson”. Puh-Leeze(?!). the Bradley v. Marquez bout could’ve gone either way and should’ve been scored a Draw. in fact, Bradley demonstrated more respect for Marquez’s “lucky” punches than he did for the Arizaless Pacquiao’s* who he bullied for the first 5 rounds of their bout. with virtual impunity. Manny* was hanging-on for dear life before his second-wind kicked in, which was the first time i ever witnessed Pacquiao’s* second-wind(?!). Btw, your scoring criteria doesn’t explain how you scored the DLH v. Trinidud bout for Cheato when DLH scored 150+ more punches than that impotent glove-loading cheat. you obviously scored the rounds that Trinidud was plodding with desperate and flailing futility for the fighter you wanted to win. otherwisel, it’s not as if Trinidud scored any punches in those rounds while utterly failing to walk down a backpedaling opponent. i don’t recall Margarito having that problem v. a desperately backpedaling Cotto.Posted June 17, 2014 4:10 pm

If Broner hits Paulie a flood of punches but can’t even hurt him — and even leaves the decision by the judges in serious doubt???
In that fight Tark , it was Broners inactivity that let Paulie finish the fight on his feet .Posted June 17, 2014 3:48 pm
Havoc.., If Broner hits Paulie a flood of punches but can’t even hurt him — and even leaves the decision by the judges in serious doubt???
And Porter outboxes Paulie much more comprehensively — and knocks him stiff in 4 rounds, running him over like a express train???
That should give even you a sense that Porter is the better fighter.Posted June 17, 2014 3:37 pm

Perry – Marquez knows damn well like most of the worlds boxing fans that he landed a lucky shot against a Paquiao that was once again kickin his Culito.. MarqPeds also knows that if he agrees to fight Paquiao again there will be very strict random Blood testing and he knows no matter how much smelly Urine he drinks he’s not going to pass the test unless he stops taking that Tijuana PEDshake… and without that Juice flowin through his system he stands ZERO chance of beating Paquiao..Posted June 17, 2014 3:24 pm

FACT #1: Juan Manuel Marquez does not want Pacquio’s belt, but wants to be a champion of the welterweight division.
Now how bizzare can that get.Posted June 17, 2014 3:17 pm
Look at that picture of Algeri landing on a slow plodding Prov.. it’ll be the same thing when Cuban Lara finally gets Canelo in the Ring. no more running from Cinnabum.Posted June 17, 2014 2:57 pm
The Tijuana Urine Drinker knows damn well that he landed a lucky shot on Paquiao. Paquiao was once again boxing his ears off and hurting MarPeds. He won’t fight Paquiao because he knows he can’t beat Paquiao and the chances of him landing a second lucky shot are more remote then Marquez testing clean in a Random Drug test format.Posted June 17, 2014 2:54 pm
Sredmond has a quota of posts every day where he has to talk about Pacquiao’s lone loss in 4 fights to Marquez.
Meanwhile Pacquiao is the world welterweight champion — having beaten the last man to give Marquez a boxing lesson.
Marquez has a longtime goal of winning the welterweight title, and hasn’t been able to achieve it… Pacquiao started fighting pro as a flyweight — and yet has he’s won the 147-pound title twice — among the 10 world championships across 8 weight divisions that he picked up.
I would point out more … but I don’t want to get all Hecdoggie.Posted June 17, 2014 2:47 pm
Guys cannot erase that KO Manny ate by trying to sell OLD azz Marquez as suddenly scared of him… Preserving a win or opting to move on to new opponents is prudent… How many boxers has Manny or any other guy fought 5x in modern boxing?Posted June 17, 2014 12:47 pm
Perry, you are offering a WEAK and mindless comeback Marquez chased Manny thru weight classes, advancing age and FLATTENED him… By your definition if a guy does not fight his opponent 5x then he is terrified that’s just a stupid concept and some Pac Fans would love to see Marquez fight Pac till 60 with the hopes that he can somehow leave JMM flatlined on the canvas..Posted June 17, 2014 12:45 pm
I thought Algieri won, he clearly out boxed Ruslan. I’ve seen fighters win fights by just throwing a lot of punches that are blocked or taken on the gloves, Devon Alexander comes to mind, but Algieri was landing clean if not powerful punches. it’s the age old problem landing more or harder? It’s all left in the hands of the judges and who knows how they are assigned to which fights? A dirty business that boxing.Posted June 17, 2014 11:48 am
What kind of fool would state that if you fought somebody 4 times that means that you are not scared of him NOW.
Well if you did not steal in the past, it doesnt mean that you are not going to steal NOW.Posted June 17, 2014 11:39 am
Juan Manuel Marquez is not after money at this point. What drives him is to make history by gaining a welterweight belt, except of course the belt of Pacquiao.Posted June 17, 2014 11:28 am
Juan Manuel Marquez will not fight Pacquioa for any amount of money. Marquez said so himself and will get his welterweight belt from anybody other than Pacquiao.Posted June 17, 2014 11:16 am

Pacquiao is running out of options for a BIG fight, JMM is looking for some LONG $$$$ for a bout he has to retire soon the man is 41 years old and with Mannys sales lagging he is aware that now is the time to press for a bigger slice..20 mill is out of the park, but 15 mill might be possible given current landscape..Posted June 17, 2014 10:32 am
Algeri will top the fading Pacquiao if they are matched up. Pac will overlook Algeri just like Ruslan did. This will be a good matchup with one judge scoring widely for Pac with the other two giving a two point edge to Algeri.Posted June 17, 2014 7:50 am
Dont end your career so early. dont fight Pacman yet.

Difference is Broner was landing more harder punches and Paulie was throwing punches with no power on them. I don’t think that can be the same for Algieri. He was snapping Ruslans head back. Regardless of how the home town judges scored it I doubt this was home cooking. There are to many people who think Algieri won, to many people think it could of been a draw. I thought it was close but I didn’t score the fight. I do now that when they showed the score card on HBO I would say to myself I didn’t score that for Ruslan.Posted June 17, 2014 2:32 am
Pac would knock Algieri out and so will Provodnikov in a rematch, yes, it’s in the contract. In any other fight the fight would have been stopped because of Algieri’s eye, he could not see out of it. Funny, the two local judges gave the fight to Algieri, the one who was not local gave the fight to Provodnikov. Provodnikov should have won the figh. Paulie fought Broner, landed more punches, out boxed him, but Broner landed the harder punches so the decision to Broner. Notice the discrimination against Provodnikov? He is an exciting fighter, love to watch him fight, but he should never have fought in Algieri’s home turf. When will fighters ever learn?Posted June 17, 2014 1:57 am

In boxing you are only as good as Ur last fight ..Algieri did what most thought was impossible not just out box but keep Prov off of him give gredit where gredit is due. As far as a future fight with PAC I say he’s not there yet ,Do the same with Keith and then you can claim Ur prize that goes for any one in the welterweight division.Posted June 16, 2014 10:39 pm
Algieri gave Provo a boxing lesson. Provo would set his feet, then try to throw his big left hook and before he could Algieri would pop him with combinations. It was a classic case of a good boxer beating a slugger. Yep, even Roach knew Provo needed a knockout to win.Posted June 16, 2014 10:12 pm
Looks like Pac is running out of opponents. Lets see who Arum tries to pull out his ass next. Another bum ass dude like Rios or Marquez 5 in which Manny gets KTFO again…Posted June 16, 2014 10:04 pm
yeah yeah NYC gave it to this dude because this guy is so popular and brings in lots of money. Just dumb to say NYC is the most corrupt. Means you know nothing about boxing.

Most everyone believed Provo would be too much for Algieri and doubted he would make it passed the sixth round. Many also believed that after beating Algieri, Provo would had a chance to not just defeat Pac, but to KO him as well. However, Algieri proved his critiques wrong and won the fight…so why shouldn’t he be taking a shot at Pac and make some money in return?Posted June 16, 2014 8:22 pm
Manny Paciouch that’s a very FUNNY post there. Gave ME a few GOOD laughs. HAHAHAAHA!!Posted June 16, 2014 7:58 pm
IF Pacquiao can’t get Maidana then he should face Algieri in New York. You’ll take a financial hit with the taxes but, you’ll get the bottom line stock BOOST from fighting in one of the Biggest media markets in the World. They will give you a lot of FREE promotion for your PPV. Its CHAMP vs. CHAMP. Its the next BEST option after Maidana….. Other than of course v.s Floyd or Broner in Vegas.Posted June 16, 2014 7:56 pm
I dont wont o fight these type of fighter always moving and throwing combination punching . I wont to fight Rios type no defensive no footwork no punch output . A lazy fighter who shows not interest in hurting me or winning the fight .
Algieri is in the conversation for a Pacquiao Fight. Although I was against it, Provodnikov was in the conversation for a Pacquiao Fight. Algieri defeated him which means the he NOW is in the conversation. Its simple pure logic. Learn how to use it.Posted June 16, 2014 7:46 pm
Not true prince, you all liked the prov v PAC fight cause you thought prov would stop manny. Now another guy beats prov he isn’t good enough? Hopefully bob and Oscar can kiss and make up so we can have another good fight other than thisPosted June 16, 2014 7:26 pm

Also, you don’t “need” power to look good boxing and winning, people tend to forget that boxing is the ART of “hit and NOT be hit”, it’s not “hit your opponent hard and knock him out or you lose” type of sport. Like anyone else, I LOVE watching a good rumble and vicious KO’s, but I can appreciate craftiness and boxing skills at it’s purest just as much.
Sure, Algieri doesn’t have Provo power, or Pacquiao power…but he DOES kind power, the mental power and the power (heart) to keep fighting under bad circumstances. The man was dropped NASTY in round 1 and rose from the canvas with impaired vision, he took a knee moments later to gather himself (very wise, something only experienced fighters do) and STILL managed to box BEAUTIFULLY, regardless of his lack of power, his legs were firmly under him, his change of direction was clever and his jab was working like a charm…he was clearly overpowered, but he has something Rulsan does NOT, that is “boxing skills”.

Pacquiao* v. Rios was NOT an entertaining fight. neither was Pacquiao* v. Bradley II. nothing less entertaining than watching a natural puncher “box”(?) his way to a scorecard nod and avoid giving fight-fans the fight they’re paying to watch. Marquez v. Manny* IV, now THAT was entertainment. two KDs and one BRUTAL KO in six short rounds. unfortunately, i don’t think “Napman*” will risk being that entertaining ever again.Posted June 16, 2014 4:17 pm

Roach is doing a lot of talking. Here’s the thing, if Pacquiao fights Algieri next, then it’s clear that he’s a cherrypicker, right? After all, Algieri is a nobody that got an unjust decision. So if the fight happens next, Pacquiao is a cherrypicker, according to the very people dismissing Algieri. Of course we know Pacquiao cherrypicks as much as anyone, but still…Posted June 16, 2014 4:11 pm
“Algieri doesn’t deserve a Floyd fight off this showing. He needs to build his resume for at least 2 more fights” . . . “Who is Algieri gonna beat in 2 fights to make him eligible for an FMJ fight 7 pounds north of where he beat Ruslan?” Tark is apparently referring to “Ws” over the likes Senchenko(?) or Matthew Hatton(?). these are the two most prominent names on Kell Brook’s ring-resume whoTark has been insisting Mayweather been avoiding in favor of soft-touches(?) like Cotto, Guerrero, Canelo, and Maidana. however, Algieri isn’t challenging “Money”. he’s making himself available to Pacquiao* who diligently avoids fighters with Algieri’s style lest he be “upset” like Provodnikov. based on styles, it’s a toss-up bout between Algieri and Manny*, which means too much potential risk for Punkuiao* to Step-Up.Posted June 16, 2014 4:10 pm

Chris Algieri has the audacity to challenge the greatest pure fighter in the history of boxing, Manny ” Pac Man” Pacquiao? Algieri needs to be slapped until he passes out so that he can feel and understand what he would end up like should he face the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Manny may be the nicest person in the world outside the ring, but don’t for a moment think he’s not the most devastating fighter on the planet today and has been for the last 10 years. Allergy has no chance whatsoever, and if he thinks just because he won a questionable win against Provodnikov he has any chance against the monster that is Manny Pacquiao, he’s going to get a very rude awakening in a hospital nearby. Look, I admire Allergy for having the fighting spirit and toughness to deal with that first round and boxing well for the remainder of the fight, hats off to him. He seems like a nice kid and he deserves a good pay day, but asking to fight Manny Pacquiao is like asking to fight a Great White Shark blind folded with arms and legs tied up. There is no hope, and I do not want to see a massacre like Jake Lamotta had years ago. People must understand that Manny Pacquiao is not your ordinary fighter. How many people lose to a Ped Punching, Ped hiring fighter like Ped Man Marquez and come back and beat a former unbeaten champion in Brandon Rios and then follow that by beating the top welterweight in the division with ease. I know, no one! Manny Pacquiao is a dynamite ready to explode. Why do you think Ped Man Marquez and Mayweather want no part of Manny Pacquiao. One fears for his life and gives a million excuses even runs to prison just to avoid fighting Manny Pacquiao, and the other comes out with some outrageous $20 million pay day he will never get because he doesn’t draw flies to his fights. No one wants to step in the ring with this ferocious, fearless lion. Manny is carrying boxing today and has been for years. Timothy Bradley said it best. “Manny is the best because he fights the best out there.” Allergy, please do yourself a favor and go fight someone more on your level. You have no idea what your asking by wanting to fight Manny Pacquiao. And I for one will protest this fight out of fear that Chris may come out on a stretcher. I don’t want to see him or anyone else hurt. There is only one man that can overcome those types of incidenst that happen inside a ring. Manny Pacquiao already proved that by coming back and beating Rios and Bradley, both top notch fighters and former champions. Someone please show this young man tapes of Manny’s fights against Cotto, Hatton, Barrera, Morales, Marquez. Diaz, De La Hoya and maybe he will think it over because he’s a smart young man and decide to apologize to Many Pacquiao and fight someone else. If you dare challenge Manny Pacquiao, you best have your life in order. Manny Pacquiao has recently been scouting Islands for retirement, so whoever gets an opportunity to fight him is going to take a beating. Trust me when I say this, Manny Pacquiao is a dangerous fighter that fears no one and will win a 9th division title soon. Manny is the best!!Posted June 16, 2014 3:08 pm

I respect Algieri a TON for what he did the other night with a Grapfruit for an eye but Pac Man is an ATG, imagine Floyd Mayweather discussing facing this guy? There would be a riot…Manny has to fight Marquez because his other immediate option got BADLY tainted (Provo) facing him off a loss to a nobody would look terrible for Pac…Posted June 16, 2014 12:49 pm
I believed I read somewhere where Algeri said he doesn’t plan to stick around boxing for much longer due to his college studies. He also said just wants to make the most out of boxing ASAP before he leaves.
So him calling out Pac is just an attention grabber. But who wants a risky no name with a boring style. Algeri is better off just taking the rematch.Posted June 16, 2014 12:33 pm

Of course, Algieri wants to cash in. Boxing gives you a narrow time frame to earn your fortune. Today, the elite fighters only fight once or twice a year, and for top dollar. It is unlikely that Algieri is on the Pacquiao radar, but you can’t blame a guy for trying.Posted June 16, 2014 11:06 am

Don’t worry BEARS. Your PMS must be real bad this month. Don’t let Provodnikov losing affect your period pains. We know it’s hard to accept your mangina bleeds like those of other normal girls. But, your mangina seems to bleed excessively and to no known cycle. It damn near bleeds every single day and you drop the mother load most weekends. There, there Bears. You do have Canelo vs Lara to look forward to. Just remember to take some aspirins before the fight and to insert some heavy duty tampons inside, cause something tells me you gonna be doing some heavy bleeding and even this week end. Actually, you gonna be butt-sore as well as the man you love to hate Guerrero is fighting. Why not donate all that blood and do something worthwhile for a change? If you can get the jumbo-sized tamps then I reckon you get some heavy duty diapers, cause you gonna be doing a lot of bleeding over the next few weeks.

Algieri may be “ready,” but he doesn’t rate fighting one of the most elite fighters ever, he’s only a 140lb’er and is not even established. He should try his luck with Rios, Alvarado and dare I say, Broner.Posted June 16, 2014 9:43 am
This is not a marketable fight, Provo would have been LIGHT sales for Pac Man but this would not be PPV worthy.. I cannot blame Algeri for looking for a payday but this ain’t happening unless Manny is throwing in the towel..Posted June 16, 2014 9:37 am
Chris ” tooth Fairy ” Algieri your right Lou boxing would be in a sad state if this happenedPosted June 16, 2014 9:03 am
Are you kidding me ??? Algieri wants now Pacquiao. Boxing is in a sad state if they let this ballarina pixie ferry fight pacquiao.Posted June 16, 2014 9:00 am
Ummm … yeah. That would draw about, what? 45,000 PPV buys? LOL
He’d be better off resting, then taking an easier defence where he can try out some new skills worked on in training and testing his eye. Pacman is a southpaw who is so much quicker than Prov The Plod and more explosive, a better defender and a quicker thinker. Pac beats Provo every day all day and he sure as heck would outwork Algieri.
Love his guts, but not his sense.Posted June 16, 2014 8:32 am
