Crawford did an unbelievable job of going through the dehydration and rehydration cycle… 17 pounds at only 135, and fighting so well with such energy.

As a percentage of your weight, that’s like a 250lb man getting down below 220 for a weigh-in, and rehydrating to 250 … and not losing any effectiveness.

I could never do that in a million years… Heavyweights never have to do that, but I could never understand how smaller weight class fighters lose so much weight … and still be effective when the bell rings after drinking it back on.

Gamboa only had to lose 10 pounds for the weigh-in.. To me, for a 135 pound guy, that’s still a lot of weight to lose.

Gamboa also landed plenty of flush-rights during the first four rounds that had no effect on the bigger Crawford. in fact, Gamboa never really settled down to box. he was powerpunching and landing from the opening bell but once Crawford adjusted and started landing his own and bigger power-shots, Gamboa seemed to feel each and every one. that’s what happens when a smaller fighter is hit by a naturally-bigger opponent.

Gamboa only hurt Crawford once and that was a solid and flush-shot right on the chin but instead of effectively following-up he lunged into punches from a naturally bigger opponent, which can’t be ignored. taller, longer reach, and seven pounds heavier on fight-night. Crawford IS the bigger guy. since when has that been a disadvantage?

Nailing the super slick Crawford with a punch that’s flush enough to put him down would be an extremely unlikely event… Especially for a guy fighting in his third (3rd) weight division.

GTFOOH… Those punches had real power. Terence was hurt probably the most of his entire amateur and pro career.

Wrong. Gamboa hit Crawford flush and never dropped him. If he was on the Biogenesis drugs he was juicing up on until last year those same punches might have put Crawford on the deck.

Fight Aficionado says.., “Gamboa got busted as a Biogenesis client but served no suspension like MLB players. He probably got off the juice since more eyes were watching though. Off the juice his punches didn’t have as much power.”

You obviously didn’t see rounds 1-4 and the 9th.. That boy can crack.. His power and speed are NOT issues.. Anytime he stops throwing he’s vulnerable.

Gamboa needs to work on basic defense. I couldn’t believe Crawford let him get away with it so long. He drops his hands EVERY time he throws his punches. He’s survived on aggressiveness, punching power and durability up until now, but it was bound to catch up with him. I mean really, this is something he should have learned as an early amateur. He reminds me of Naseem Hammed with that defense, but Hammed had better head movement and an awkward style out of a southpaw stance to counter this huge mistake.

“Korobov didn’t look quite as amazing as everything I’ve read about him.. I don’t remember seeing him before but he seemed a little stiff.” – I saw Korobov a bunch of times years ago when Top Rank was trying to hype him as the next big thing. He’s got decent technical skills but is stiff as plywood and has little power. They realized that and put him on a slow burn. Now years later he’s finally poised to fight for a title. I don’t give him much chance unless he gets Quillin who is a fraud. Against GGG he’s dead meat.

Mr TARK, I do not know of this Archie Bunker person, but if they are a highly experienced boxing coach then I am playing them.

As for boxing both ways, this is like the intercourse, it is no good. You do it one way, not with man and woman. This is against nature, like letting monkey drive a truck.

Mr Klitschko’s do not waste time with frivolities, and have no need of tire people with body punch, because they like to technical take apart the head.

If Wladimir face with opponent like Gamboa, he will control distance much better, like chessmaster. He will also not allow opponent into range unoppose, he would make them eat jab, and they think careful about if they want to fling right hand around like monkey paw because very good Ukranian left hook is in place to break jaw when they do.

Klitschko’s are better than your Americans. An experienced coach can see this, I have much knowledge to share but American mind must be open to it.

Oh babushka Annonymous. You are make crazy words like a very bad and angry man. I am not racist. Negroid is proper scientific term for the children of the jungle.

As a boxing coach, this was the type of fight which makes one wince.

It is very good for making uneducated boxing fans site with mouth agape like young child watching Barney Dinosaur, but to the technical eye of a successful coach it was very poor indeed.

This was a low skill encounter between two negroid individuals, flinging their monkey paws around with abandon in the random hope of landing a punch. There was no skill, no balance, no jab, no head movement, poor countering and a lack of intelligence.

The tall dark one could learn a lot from watching video of Klitschko brothers, to see how to use reach to control. A Klitschko would never be behind on points against a shortling such as this.

If you wanna institute a height requirement then kiss a huge portion of Pacquaio’s legacy goodbye, he’s shorter than Marquez and gave up 4-6 inches against Oscar and Margarito… Gamboa and his people were NOT forced to face Crawford, they chose to and the reality is that Gamboa proved to be a front runner, Crawford changed tactics technically and began to exploit Gamboas hands down all offense style which is what a fighter is supposed to do, Gamboa is free to box in whatever division he chooses and even after a layoff he came ready to fight and was willing to go out on his shield, a noble gesture that Crawford obliged by beating his AZZ…

Posted June 29, 2014 2:36 pm

Gamboa was just too small for Crawford and the inactivity obviously really hurt him as well. Crawford’s a big lightweight. So big he’s even weighed in above the junior welterweight limit on a number of occasions. Gamboa is a pumped up featherweight and he should seriously contemplate a move back down in weight if he wants to rekindle his form of old.

The size and reach disadvantage were always going to make it a difficult task for Gamboa to overcome, but I feel the inactivity played an equally big part in his downfall. The frustration of sitting on the sidelines and not fighting regularly can be a real killer. Gamboa was far too gung-ho and reckless and it left him wide open and susceptible to getting caught with silly shots time and time again.

Posted June 29, 2014 2:29 pm

Credit to both fighters for giving the fans an exciting fight, and congratulations to Crawford for a good solid win. BUT, after watching last night’s fight, and countless other tall guy vs short guy fights (Klitschko vs Sam Peter, Lewis vs Tyson, Big daddy vs Holyfield, Cotto vs Trout to name a few), does it make sense to ask if Boxing should probably include a height limitation for fights? For example, a 5’4″ featherweight can’t be matched up with anyone taller than 5′ 6″. I know that one of the repercussions should that rule be in place would be that certain fights would never happen (last night’s for example). But with the ambiguous advantage/disadvantage, would an almost one sided fight as such even be worth watching??? Just food for thought

Posted June 29, 2014 12:40 pm

I never made excuses for Lewis his 2 losses are what they are he was stopped as for ancient versions of Holyfield and Ali getting done in, intelligent boxing fans understand when an OLD, FADED fighter has hung around too long… Gamboa was 32 and Undefeated and looked good early in the bout, call me when he’s 39 or 40 and has begun to absorb serial beatings my opinion will have changed.. Pathetic boxing fans looking to peddle a 38 year old, inactive and washed up Ali or a medically suspended 40 year old Holyfield as “battle ready” only shame and embarrass themselves..You are the SAME TWATS that will call Cotto “Old and damaged” because Mayweather beat him… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I see no excuses for Gamboa, starting at the end of round 4 he began being outboxed… Crawford visibly changed tactics, Gamboa has been lunging like Manny for years and finally someone exploited his lapse to the fullest.. Crawfords composure as he adjusted to Gamboas initial explosiveness cannot be taught, not sure what Crawfords upside is but stopping Gamboa in that manner has rightfully gotten him the attention of the boxing world..

te tumbo

once again, a lot of laborious over-analysis when it’s glaringly apparent that Gamboa was a feather fighting a lightweight verging on welter. the size discrepancy was glaringly apparent from the start and what was most remarkable was Gamboa’s ability to overcome the size disadvantage to outclass Crawford in the early rounds. afterwards, his reckless lunges to finish in impressive fashion only magnified the size advantage in Crawford’s favor who was able to expertly exploit it to his advantage with sharp counters that shook, rattled, and Dropped Gamboa despite Crawford not being the most explosive lightweight out there. still a good and solid win for Crawford in front of the hometown fans. another management blunder for Team Gamboa who have got to be the worst management team in recent boxing history. whatever superstar potential Gamboa once had has been officially squandered with piss-poor management that has only stifled any momentum to Gamboa’s professional progress. this AINT’t the amateurs. check in your gold medals at the gate.

It wasn’t Crawford’s fault that Gamboa was smaller and fighting above his weight class. The match makers and Gamboa’s team are responsible for making a bad match. Fighter’s should not blindly listen to anyone but think for themselves.

If Gamboa was “waaaay” over rated, then that also does not say anything positive about Crawford. What it then says is Crawford looked good only because he fought as you say, an over rated fighter. Guess Crawford is not as good as some think he is.

Love-the-Sport

Good fight for boxing fans and a good night for boxing overall as a sport and a business.

– Promoters got a very good crowd in small city (Omaha, Nebraska)

– Promoters have the makings of a fighter (Crawford) who has PPV potential

– Crawford overcame adversity, Crawford overcame a fighter (Gamboa) who was faster, Crawford learned a lot in the fight, he patient and mature, Crawford showed tremendous toughness in winning

This is all great for boxing.

Gamboa on the other hand was a mixed bag. Gamboa showed great speed and skill early in the fight — but it is not clear whether his power has carried with him to 135 pounds. He hit Crawford clean but until the 9th round I am not sure he hurt Crawford at all. Gamboa has problems. He might just be a good 3-4 round fighter and then after that he both tires and loses mental focus. Gamboa gets knocked down a lot. He throws wide punches. He has bad defense. I don’t know if these things can be fixed. Gamboa continues to show great potential — but lots of weaknesses.

Size and reach advantage didn’t make a difference until Crawford switched to the south paw stance. That skill was the key to victory because Gamboa owned him conventionally. Gamboa would beat him in a rematch. It shows he had no answer to that. His corner is weak too.

Same token all i see is impostors quickly make the total opposite predictions so the members of this site can sickenly bash him like he was the one making inaccurate and these ludicrous protections.

Then we have people saying certain members of this board or cheerleaders of him but are actually Boxtra himself. I don’t know them all personally but CORRECTAMUNDO ACCUBOX are NOT Boxtradamus. He is not some chump who has low self-esteem that would resort to something as ridiculous as this. He is very well off thanks to the fruits of his consistent accurate predictions and bedding and putting his money where his mouth is. Anyone who thinks otherwise really need to evaluate their own life and start embracing this man for the greatness that has bestowed upon us. Jealousy is a bad thing but instead of being jealous listen to some of his predictions and you could very well enjoy the fruits of your betting and prediction making yourself.

Thank you for your time.

I thought Crawford would KO Gamboa a lot earlier.. He had a rough time.. Gamboa has a lot of speed and range, and it took Crawford a while to adjust — like Floyd Mayweather in the Zab Judah fight … Zab’s speed made Floyd nuts for the first 2 rounds.

Roy Jones’s comments about Crawford being the best stance switcher since Marvin Hagler were weird.. I’ve never seen Hagler box effectively as a righty.. In fact he fought the first few rounds as a righty against Leonard and lost all those rounds.

Crawford was getting beat using an orthodox stance, which really amazed me.. I didn’t think Gamboa would be that sharp and strong — and Crawford would get rid of him fast.. When he switched to southpaw he started hitting Gamboa with his right jab and right hook.. Gamboa was wide open for both with his hands down.

I was amazed Gamboa was still undefeated.. It seemed like he been floored about 10 times in various fights.. He’s very fast and powerful but needs a boxing coach.. He’s so wide open and easy to punch, it’s hard to believe he has all that amateur experience.

Crawford looked real good tonight, better than vs Prescott or Burns because he went for the KO and got it. Keep doing that and he’ll get a boatload of fans. In fact with this fight I’ve gone from an observer to a fan. There’s enough skillful boxers out there, nobody cares about them. But if a skillful boxer brings heat and finishes opponents off they’ll build a passionate fanbase.

The Prince

I think Teddy Atlas summed Gamboa up nicely on EPSN Friday. Gameboa has an identity problem. He doesn’t know if he wants to be an action slugger, or a boxing tactician. He has the tools to be a brilliant boxer, but he doesn’t have the patience or the discipline. All those knockdowns Gamboa suffered, was mostly because he lacked discipline to set Crawford up with a good shot and follow it up with something.

Crawford might have been greatly assisted in this right by Goamboa’s poor chin. Until Crawford landed that right hook he was getting outboxed. Gamboa has very low recovery ability. He was on unsteady legs as soon as he got caught clean, and never seemed to bounce back.

Good win by Crawful. He’s certainly a tough and determined guy.

I think he’s gonna change his trainers now.

Whoever took Gamboa should’ve taken MY advice. Gamboa needed Floyd Sr. to fix his POROUS Defense. Without him it was curtains. Just like it was when Dawson dropped Floyd Sr.

That’s your opinion but you picked Gamboa plain and simple and everybody on here knows it. Claiming decouples is crazy.

It may sound crazy, but I sure got you guys thinking. Crawford still have a lot of fights ahead of him to be considered a HOF or a ATG, but he does look like and have the same mannerisms of Tommy Hearns. Time will tell if he has the same heart and punching power. But tonight was a good indicator.

The comparison to Hearns it’s just foolishness & stubbornness because the prince & big ham already said so…but other than the aforementioned skin color & corrugated as$holes, they have nothing in common.

I’d take Mikey. IF Gamboa can catch Crawford SO can Garcia and Garcia is a MUCH better Boxer than Gamboa. Gamboa had Crawford wobbly Garcia stops him.

Posted June 29, 2014 12:40 am

Thomas “Hit Man” Hearns is head and shoulders above Crawford right now. The comparison isn’t fair to Crawford. He has to beat elite guys before being mentioned with Hearns that beat Duran, Benitez Cuevas, and gave SRL all he could handle. Crawford still has a lot of guys in front of him that he has to beat. Let’s see Mikey Garcia vs Crawford. I still would take Crawford to beat him, but there plenty more guys for Crawford to beat. He looks good so far.

My question though. Why is there someone with no shirt in the ring. Only people with. I shirt should be the fighters

One thing that I would say about boxing is that it is becoming a lot like baseball. Back in the day pitchers would pitch 9+ innings easy with no problem. Today, 6 innings is considered a really good quality start. What would the landscape in boxing be if fights were still 15 rounds?

No need to compare the career or hearns to crawford. He does look like Tommy though, he straight up does. He scores a few more of those long armed ko’s and the resemblance i will increase…. As far as a contemporary Tommy Hearns, at his best i would say Vernon Forrest was comparable.

Good fight. Lot’s of heart from both guys. I’m a bit surprised that Gamboa didn’t have any technique to fall back on, coming from the vaunted Cuban amateur system, but Crawford showed some kind of poise to stay in the pocket and throw while Gamboa was really getting the better of him in the beginning.

Another “victory” in this fight. Is a boxing promotor was forced to get off their a$$ and actually promote a fight rather than letting a casino promote the fight for them and taking the easy money. Fights like this in venues like this is what Builds the sport. I was very impressed from my TV at the atmosphere that was in the audience. That is a hunger from people that were starving for it. The “boxing is dead” axiom is easily destroyed when promotors make a grass roots effort to build a regional attraction and bring boxing across american instead of bringing it to Las Vegas and AC, and the little indian lands only.

Tomato Can

Actually all is said and done with crawford yet. He’s not like Tommy Hearns, but he doesn’t have to be. Really Tommy would have been jabbing more and throwing hard straight rights all night. This kid Crawford, showed the ability to fight from the south paw stance as well as throw great body punches, which Tommy didn’t do a lot of that remember anyway. He also ate a lot of hard punches and didn’t cave to the canvas, like Tommy did on quite a few occasions… Don’t get me wrong Hearns is a ATG, and crawford is just now becoming known, but he has a lot of strengths.

And called another fight right. Haters sit down on my fight calling ability. That’s for Mike Tyson. Called another one correct. Beside that good win by Crawford. This clearly showed that Gamboa was just to small and was a weight class to high. Tark should take note of they.

Tough break for Gamboa but he made stupid career moves. Turned pro to late. Bulked up to a ridiculous weight. Burned bridges that kept him out of significant fights for four years. And the thing that really is a nail in his coffin for me is he looked dead tired in the last rounds and that is why he got KO’d. That was exhaustion. I have not seen a guy that gassed out in a shootout since i watched Ron Lyle vs George Foreman on classic sports. Elite fighters need to have their speed and reflexes sharp for 12 rounds. Mayweather seems to still have it. Even Bernard has it. Gamboa lost it. He was not that sluggish 3-4 years ago. That is why i think it is the end for him as an elite fighter. His best shot is to lose 3 pounds of fat and 6 pounds of muscle and see if he can fight at 126.

Crawford is already well above that china chinned Hearns. Hearns got blown away everytime he faced anybody willing to trade and was not intimidated. Hearns was a ghetto bully who couldn’t handle pressure.

Crawford just showed he can be disciplined, patient and take a good shot, come back with his own power. No way should Crawford be named alongside that fraudulent coward Hearns.

Man ive been saying Crawford was damn good for a while now. He had me worried early but showed all the traits hes been showing leading up to this point that impressed me. It seemed like composure made the difference tonight. Crawford maintained his while Gamboa seemed to lose his after the fight turned around in Crawfords favor. Hats off to both these guys for giving us a rare elite vs elite fight. Gamboa might have to go down in weight size looks like its gonna be a problem for him at lw.

I picked Crawford to win and thought Gamboa would give him a tough fight, and he did for 6 rounds, but he fought reckless after 4 rounds. Crawford himself got caught, but he kept his composure.

Gamboa will go for it right away, like he ALWAYS does, he will either drop Crawford, or get dropped by Crawford, and then the stoppage will follow in quick order.

Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Officially: Korobov wins UD. 97-91 x2 and 96-92.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:51 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 8-2 Uz – Last round, Uzcat needs a KO. Big right hook for Korobov. Everytime Uz misses his right, Kor lands a body shot. Uz pushed down again. Sloppy round. Good body combo by Korobov.

A flat fight even with the 2 knockdowns. Something was missing.

I have it a points win for Korobov. 98-90.

Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 7-2 Uz – Kor wins the first 2 exchanges. Kor has a bit more power. Uzcat pushed down, however it was a body shot. Korobov lands on Uz while against the ropes. Uz still up for the fight but is a skill class below. Kor tape comes loose on gloves. Trading rights.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:44 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 6-2 Uz – Uz drops his guard when he breaks and continually gets tagged. Fair or not? Both trade shots. Left to Uz body hurt again. Nice 4 punch combo by Uzcat. Uzcat on the offence. Another body shot hurt Uzcat. I think Uz did enough over the 3 min.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:40 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 6-1 Uz – Korobov comes out attacking again. Korobov drop Uz with a right to the head. Uz down again with another right. Kor hit on the break. Kor lands a big left to the body that doubles up Uz. Big rights hitting Uzcat. Nice courage by Uz fighting back. 10-7 to Korobov.

I think Gamboa will smoke Terrance Crawford. People talk about Crawford’s technique but Gamboa has the Gold medal and technique is what an amateur career is all about. I think Gamboa’s technique is miles ahead of Crawford’s. People like to say Gamboa has a glass jaw. I disagree. Gamboa fights 2 ways. If a guy can hurt him he fights technical with caution, then people say where is the exiting Gamboa but he wins.
When he fights a guy that can’t really hurt him he fights aggressive and risks a flash knockdown and then gets up and wins. Gamboa has seen every style of fighter. People talk about the layoff, but Gamboa grew up in the Cuban system I don’t think it will effect him.

Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 5-1 Uz – Korobov come out fast gets Uz on the back foot. Kor is very calculating or has stamina issues. Uz throwing single punches. Ko more aggressive in this round. Uz lands his right a few times. Good evasion by Korobov. Straight left lands for Korobov.

KOI sports or FirstRow sports.

Hey I don’t like Mexicans. Try KOI Sports. Look up in yahoo. Or try this other one. I’ll send in a sec.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:29 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 4-1 Uz – Kor needs to work harder. Uzcat has a sniff of victory here. Korobov lets a combo go. Uz fires one shot back. Crowd booing. Korobov responds with some hard shots that land. Kor cut with an accidental headbutt. Uzcat winging wild punches and some land at the end of the round. Close one due to that.

I was SO happy when Lomachenko schooled Russell due to SUPERIOR SKILLS that I hired a Lomachenko lookalike and BLEW HIM IN THE SHOWER.

I KNEW it was a impostor though, unlike folks on here who cannot tell the difference between ME any my wannabes.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:24 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 3-1 Uz- Uzcat starting to stalk and pressure a bit more. Of course this plays into Korobov countering skills. Uz landing but nothing dangerous. Uzcat work rate went up and he landed some. Korobov generally defended and evaded. Uzcat earned that one.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:24 pm 


I don’t like Mexican people

Could someone send me a stream?

Posted June 28, 2014 10:23 pm 


I don’t like Mexican people

I’m really excited about this bout

Posted June 28, 2014 10:20 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 3-0 Uz – Kor foot movement is good. Uz lands an uppercut. Neither guys are very quick. Both guys landed lefts. Korobov is waiting to counter instead of outright winning these rounds. Uzcat jab starting to work well. Bit of a nothing round Kor did a bit more.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:20 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 2-0 Uz – Korobov left hand lands hard a few times and it bothers Uzcat. Korobov is a touch better and seems to be doing just enough.

What a great fight.

Hard pick. What happens depends on what type of Gamboa we’ll see in the ring. I’ll go with Crawford. Gamboa has a weak chin, if nothing else.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:13 pm 


Boxtradamus

And MY drink is ready to TOAST with after the bout!!!

Posted June 28, 2014 10:13 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Kor 1-0 Uz – A real range finder round. Both pawing with jabs and neither loading up. Korobov landed a very clean hard punch near the end which gives him the round. Korobov seems to be setting up his pan. Uz seems to be reactive.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:12 pm 


Boxtradamus

I took Gamboa IF Floyd Sr. is the trainer and Crawford IF he isn’t.

Posted June 28, 2014 10:09 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

I’ll go with Korobov only because I haven’t heard or seen of the other guy. Solid reasoning there, hey. LOL

Posted June 28, 2014 10:06 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Just wondering who the “GREATEST” is picking tonight?

Posted June 28, 2014 10:02 pm 


1903

Gamboa on points tonight

Posted June 28, 2014 9:59 pm 


Boxtradamus

I switched and took Loma which enabled ME to remain as the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born! !!!!

Posted June 28, 2014 9:51 pm 


Boxtradamus

You DOOFUS. Most of those picks were made by MY disciples. Go take you a RECOGNITION class.

Posted June 28, 2014 9:49 pm 


Hey, That’s My Bike!!!

Going with Crawford tonight. Don’t think we have seen the best of Crawford yet. Gamboa will always be in it and will create some nervous moments for Crawford fans. Crawford by UD over the stretch.

Posted June 28, 2014 9:49 pm 


WHAT!?!

Yes this is the gift you give the world. All the wrong predictions as follows:

WRONG
Boxtradamus
I took Stieglitz and I STAND by MY pick.
Posted February 28, 2014 10:37 pm

Yeah Stieglitz Lost!!!

Boxtradamus
Porter by ROUGH housing decision.
Posted March 17, 2014 11:17 am

Porter TKOéd Malignaggi!!!

Boxtradamus
Canelo will be KO’ed in shocking upset, upset to the rest of you but not to the greatest fight prophet EVER born. Carrot top goes down, EASY EASY work for Alfredo.
Posted March 3, 2014 6:36 pm

Canelo was the winner!!!

Boxtradamus
“Guess you learned your LESSON to pick the outstanding amateur-turned-pro when you didn’t PICK Rigondeaux over Donaire!”-Nope. I learned that outstanding Boxers take MY advice very WELL…. Lomachenko by ANY way, shape, or form
Posted February 27, 2014 12:18 am

Lomanchenko lost to Salido!!!

Boxtradamus
Agnew in a shocking upset. You heard it hear first from the greatest fight prophet EVER born!!!
Posted March 28, 2014 1:18 pm

Agnew is the loser!!!

Boxtradamus
You don’t need to be “hung” well if you know how to use your tounge. But sadly, all the bruthas have no clue as to how that works. B Hops gets a KO, hasn’t had one in a long time. I remain the greatest fight prophet EVER born!
Posted April 18, 2014 11:30 pm

Bhop by boring points decision again!!!

Boxtradamus
OFFICIAL prediction is BRADLEY by 11th round TKO! Tonight I will yet AGAIN demonstrate to the MASSES as well as to the HATERS why I am the GREATEST fight prophet EVER born!!! I now go prepare VICTORY cigar!
Posted April 12, 2014 10:48 pm

Pacquiao beats Bradley again, this time officially!!!

Boxtradamus
Both fighters looked to be in fantastic shape, perhaps the best of their respective careers. However, that being said, not gonna help Bradley much as its he that gets KOed, maybe even early.
What you all want to know, my prediction. Pac by stunning stoppage. I to this day, still remain the greatest fight prophet EVER born and the man of most of your dreams!!!
Posted April 11, 2014 8:26 pm

Even with 2 bites of the cherry, still wrong Pac by decision!!!

Boxtradamus
Yup. Russell Jr. by SHOWCASE decision or stoppage. MY loyal disciple picks Lomachenko SO he will remain LESSER than ME at picking WINNERS. I am STILL the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!
Posted June 17, 2014 9:52 pm

Looks like the loyal disciple remains much more than Boxtra, Lomo wins!!!

Posted June 28, 2014 9:46 pm 


Boxtradamus

YES they DO. But I continue to DO it because I like sharing MY gift with the World!!

Posted June 28, 2014 9:42 pm 


ACCUBOX

The TOASTS must get boring after being ACCURATE week IN and week OUT!!!

Posted June 28, 2014 9:39 pm 


CORRECTAMUMDO

Great early pick on Zewski over Doku Boxtra!!

Posted June 28, 2014 9:27 pm 


Boxtradamus

TARK, Hissydalgo, and Herron ALL skipped out on making picks like SISSIES. Thats called sitting down to take a PISS.

Posted June 28, 2014 9:26 pm 


Boxtradamus

I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born! !!!!! And I will be taking a TOAST to it tonight! !!!!!
