The thing I like about sakio is that he throws real punches they may not knock people out but there brutal they have something on the end of them which is lacking in 1 and 2 p4p who have a tendency to throw wwf but have amazing techniques

GOOD guess but it looks like another SUCKER was born. I’m SO GREAT that the only way to get MY percentage down is to have someone else make MY picks!!!!! And the SUCKERS think its ME. Nevertheless no matter what any PEA brained posters THINK, I’m taking Porter with the SLAUGHTERHOUSE WIN and I WILL be celebrating yet again!!! I can’t wait!!!

I think malignaggi was the last guy to call porter a ‘basic’ fighter. It turned into a basic beatdown.

Any fight Saiko Bika is involved in will never be fight of the year

I like the guy
He’s very tough, deserves his break but Christ he is hard to watch with grabbing, mauling , head butting and wailing forearms

Great to have a really good card brooks vs porter is going to be really interesting one of these guys is going to be a star in boxing. Dirrel can really punch expect fireworks and sakio has been in with the best of the best and always is competitive and will be sure to dish out pain. Can’t wait these could be fights of the year.

3 months training camp for Brook seems a long time. I think Porter had closer to 2 months. What does this mean? I’m not sure, but if it’s all true and not some smoke and mirrors game, Porter may be fresher with the edge off Brook. The weigh in will be interesting: They both are guys who have come down in weight the last couple of years and I’ll be looking to see who is carrying it best.

Now this is why we pay for showtime n one of the main reason s I did nt cancel my subscription in protest of last weeks garbage . Btw brook was able to force this fight because he had worked his way into the mandatory position n he had the powerful matchroom backin him . F U al haymon

Fight Aficionado being fooled by the SAME trick 20 times in the SAME year is pitiful. ESB should ban PEA brained guys like him and we could all have a Boxing discussion without having to worry about having to explain that two people can use the same name here. Us smart guys already KNOW that. Get guys like FA TFOOH. Porter with the SLAUGHTERHOUSE WIN.

Posted August 12, 2014 6:21 pm

Thats true but that is why he got a draw in his last fight. He ran a bit to much later in the fight or took rounds off. He was clearly the better boxer but running a bit and taking rounds off cost him a win.

BoxAnus predicting Brooks by KO and Porter easy win in the same thread, same crap he pulls every match. ESB needs a new screening device that filters out all the retards, then we’d be able to have normal discussions without the sideshow train wrecks.

Brook hasn’t been down that’s true but he has been wobbled times without number versus Jones and even the Ukrainian( I don’t remember his name ) rang his bell. If Brook lets Porter swarm him, he won’t see the final bell. Porter, may not knock Brook down but he’ll most definitely beat him up to force a stoppage when Brook runs out of steam which is highly probably if the fight is ferocious.

Brook in training since May.

Mike Tyson

Porter has the chin of a 164 fighter it’s where he came down from, but if anybody can test it brook can. Brook is also a underweight 147 lb fighter and uses rehydrate on fight night to his advantage, so that even the score a bit. But brook has been in training over 8 weeks hope he not stale.

Figueroa matchup should be a good one.Bika vs Dirrell expecting dirrell to be on his bike while Bika swings for the fences…. And Brook will kick Porters ass.The jab and straight right will be to much for the suspect chin of Porters.

Posted August 12, 2014 2:57 pm 


Mike Tyson

To explained it better, your chest size deside what style you fight. Slugger or boxer .Small chest size are slugger , bigger chest chest throw wilder so are more boxers.
Boxer can’t get a ko (not jab) inside. Slugger can get a ko inside just slugging . As big shoulder has to come forward to get the momentum in there punch. And in exchanges there are too wide and telegraft punch. ( fighting a huge guy the safe spot is inside and scrub his arm side to side and use your elbows in a street fight)

The power comes from the ground flat foot is best . And boxer need to have power or have train to fight on there upper half of there feet to be flexable.
But this is wasting or subtracting from ko power.
So PAC who has turned into more of a smarter boxer will lose ko power. Normal. A slugger/ boxer in more in tune with dropping down for power as needed and boxing ( half foot) when needed. Slugger/ boxer Cotto display this well.

Posted August 12, 2014 2:22 pm 


Mike Tyson

Brook, has a bad habit of dropping his left hand after jabbing to tit level like clock work. He get away because he has a long reach, but in exchange this will be another Martinez/ cotto, hand low is dead open.
Brook is expecting to jab and box the early rounds, the same thing paulie tried to do. But beside pressure and speed, footwork aka PAC . Porter has a long reach for a short guy, paulie found this out and so will brook. Nice match fight in a while.

Posted August 12, 2014 1:54 pm 


Mike Tyson

If porter runs brooks over he just killed his chance with a fight with floyd. I’ve seen porter training and he super crisp and fast, he now in the Bradley,PAC ,Marquez speed range.
He on a almost veg diet, and has 160 lb power a s he was a fat 164 lb kid that still has a undeafeated amature record. He still 210 undeafeated from the amatures. That even better than Floyd record. One draw that he avenge to a counter puncher Dias. As that the only fighter that can stop slugger/ boxer, remember PAC.
Brook is similar to khan or canelo in the sense, of all are boxers with a single punch ko power. Harder Lunch for slugger/ boxer , but avoided from boxers or Counter punchers. Circle

Punch ; I agree with something’s you say but suspect chin? Brook has never been down.

im taking brook by tko. catches porter coming in. I reckon the brook jab and the brook upper cut will be the weapons of choice. good fight though and could go either way

Posted August 12, 2014 1:26 pm 


Boxtradamus

Porter wins this one easily. Brook is out of his LEAGUE in this one. Reminds me of people that match their picks against mine. I am in a league all by myself which is why I am the greatest fight PROPHET ever born!!!!

Posted August 12, 2014 1:23 pm 


punch

Porter by TKO in the later rounds. However, an early KO for Brook won’t surprise me either. Brook isn’t going to discourage porter with his jab alone. Porter is a very awkward fighter who makes a lot of mistakes, if Brook stays calm and throws a lot of sharp punches he could actually catch Porter coming in and end the fight before it gets started. On the other hand, if Porter gets into his rhythm, it will spell doom for Brook who’s got a limited gas tank and a suspect chin. I expect the latter that’s why I’m going with Porter by late TKO.

I like Brook a lot and hope he wims this but I just dont fancy his chances. Ive watched most of his fights and watched him evolve as a fighter over the past years. He does a lot well but I just dont think he’s quite got it to be elite. Dont get me wrong he’s a top ten fighter and a worthy opponent for any of the guys in the division. He reminds me of a good solid walk forward European fighter. He’s fast, put good combinations together and punches hard. He’s got a decent defence but its more a cover up style than through good footwork and reflexes. I think he lacks in punch output though and has had stamina issues in the past. Taking this into consideration I think Porter will walk him down and start blasting at Brooks cover up defence. Due to Brooks lack of movement and footwork i think his only chance is that he’s got the power to keep Porter off. Brooks god a solid jab and he’s gonna need to ram it down Porters throat evertime he comes forward in the hope that it slows Porter down. In the end though I think Porter will end up forcing Brook to go to war where it will all be down to who has the most power, best chin and maybe who has the better conditioning. Therefore I fancy Porter to win. i hope I’m underestimating Brooks power and when they start trading shots Brook has edge. Only time will tell. Either way this is gonna be a good fight.

Brook only struggled with Jones because he hit him with everything and ran out of gas. Similar to when Haye fought Thompson. Amazing how Jones stayed on his feet. But it was stupid really as he was trying to impress the cameras. 2nd time around he just mowed Jones down and showed he was on a much higher level. I think Brook has watched how Porter likes to jump in with his right hooks and will have a game plan for that. I’m guessing Porter has underestimated Brook. Brooks jab is hard and accurate and if not the best in his division. He is also very accurate moving from head to body. I’m looking forward to this fight and I think its gonna be a blast !!!!

My money’s on Porter, I have a hard time seeing how Brooks will win this. I’ve watched a couple of his fights and find it hard to see how he struggled with Jones who seems to be one of the best he has fought and Jones is not very good himself. We will see on the 16th when they fight, I think Porter runs away with this fight.

Sometimes I think I don’t spend enough time on boxing politics and the ins and outs of who’s got what belt. Then I read some forums and I realise I’m doing fine not spending much time on that stuff. I just check ring magazine every month to see who’s ranked where.

Prediction: without full confidence I’m picking Porter by some type of decision. Purely based on him having had better competition. But if I could choose a result it’d be for one of these guys to announce themselves with an impressive ko, and then move on to shake up the division. I have neither uk or American allegiance. My only allegiance is to good fights. And poossy! I like poossy.

” Floyd is the Champ. Porter is a titlest”

Floyd will be the true “champion” when and only when he wins every belt in each division that he fights in and holds them concurrently. Otherwise, he’s just a multi-belt titlest.

Presently Floyd does not hold either the WBO or the IBF welterweight belts. He also does not hold the WBO or the IBF jr. middleweight belts. That means there are two champions in each division (not including the interim champs) that Floyd has not fought and defeated.

No matter what anyone says or believes the only way for any “champion” to become the true one and only champion is to win all the titles in a division and hold the belts concurrently. So far, Floyd hasn’t done that.

Nobody’s talking about Anthony Dirrell vs Bika. Banging rematch here, I think Dirrell will find a way to get the distance he needs to drop that killer straight right this time. Showtime working Jacobs’ storyline overtime but Dirrell beat cancer too.

I guess I am merely stating that How can Brook hide behind management. If he wants to be anything in the sport then he would need to win a title. If he decided not to enforce his mandatory then talk of him not being that good would be even greater since he has had some title fights fall through

no need to commend brook for fight for a title. Its EVERY boxers dream to fight for a world title. They only start making demands once they r in a position of power i.e. have a title. When myweather was on the come up he was calling out everyone and he was constantly being ducked. Obviously things changed when he became the star of boxing. Bottom line is boxing is business.

OK PEEJ – since you wanna split every C#nt hair, let me re-state.

In todays generation, where most fighters look for the lowest risk, highest reward, and use every excuse in the book so that they don’t have to fight the best of the best… I would like to take this moment to COMMEND Brook for having the testicular fortitude to take the fight and not hide behind his manager.

How often have fighters skirted mandatories????
And regardless of skill, ranking, I do think all fighters should be commended.

Posted August 11, 2014 5:43 pm 


PEEJ

I also don’t think he went to his manager and said give me Porter. They enforced their mandatory.

Posted August 11, 2014 5:26 pm 


PEEJ

Brook is the mandatory for Porters belt. I am sure if Brook wins then Khan would take the fight to grab a belt. In actuality it is Porter who is taking the challenge of Brook. This is also a big step up for Brook. But no I don’t think he should be commended. If that is the case you just have to commend all fighters.

Posted August 11, 2014 5:25 pm 


kato3388

He should be commended because isn’t Khan refusing to fight Brook? No one is really rushing to the front of the line to take on Porter either… so, yes in today’s, “Let my manager tell me who I am supposed to fight” generation… I think Brook should be commended for taking on such a risky opponent.

Posted August 11, 2014 5:23 pm 


PEEJ

Why would he need to be commended for taking on such a big fight? Porter is a titlest and if you want a title then you have to fight for it. This is a good fight but not sure why he would need to be commended. Taking Porter by decision.

Posted August 11, 2014 5:19 pm
