Daniel Geale is a better boxer than he,s given credit four. I think he will be to fast for sturm and be to busy for 12 rounds. Decision for Geale. Go the aussie.

America’s even worse philly. The worst decisions Ive been seeing in recent yrs have been coming out of the US.

philly shell

If Sturm wins, he should fight the winner of the other middleweight fight (probably Martinez). The timing is right, and a unified middleweight champ would be good for the sport. But, Sturm needs to fight outside of Germany. Yes, he draws a lot of fans there, but the judges are too biased. I guess America’s not much better, but if he wants to be the champion he needs to prove himself without the hometown advantage and gift decisions.

Agree with you Chavez but only when you used the only words that make sense ( Chavez will win) your forgot to mention other ways that Chavez has to win over this trash talker. KO. Descicion. so you only right on thaht.

How you figure Kessler is much better than this version of Hopkins-why because he defeated freaking Allan Green-PLEASE. Froch defeated an older, more worn out and lighter version of Johnson. Come on playa Johnson was hot when he fought Dawson and Hopkins IMO even though he lost to Dawson he fought a good fight. Froch is the man & I liked him since the 1st time I watched him but Dawsons comp @ the time he fought them were better than Wards when he fought them. Green was beggn to get knocked out & Kessler helped him achieve his goals. Anyway, I have Dawson beating Ward, but we shall see.

I agree with you my man. I just hope these fights are scored fairly.

Posted August 30, 2012 1:03 pm 


Agreed, Borefest of a fight yyaawwnn.

Martinez is good but not great, Margarito Kayod him so he is not that great, best of a bad bunch and Chavez will pound him.

You should write profesionally, your comment make sanse because you don’t talk out of hate you are looking the whole scenary. Trash talkers should read your comment. It will take Martinez and probably 2 more for trash talker to believe that ” The Legend is going on”

Chavez will win, but like always he will not get any credit.

Froch already defeated Pascal – Kessler is much better than this version of Hopkins. Froch also defeated Johnson.

I agree that Ward has the best resume, but the fight will still be very boring.

The writer also claims Wards comp is better than Dawson-I say how because of the tournament? Dawson has Pascal, Hopkins 2X’s, Johnson @ his natural weight 2X’s, Tarver 2X’s and Ademak. I don’t think Kessler, Abraham, Bika, Green, Miranda and Froch is better than Dawson’s Comp. Both have fought really good fighters but tic for tac I’d sway Dawson’s direction. I think Dawson’s lack of fire may have people thinking a lil unclearly but I think Dawson might beat Ward up if he’s not weaken by the weight lost. Fans and cridicts are putting to much stock into Martinez and Ward-I see two upsets happening-could be two upsets by stoppages @ that.

I think Chavez comp is equal to Martinez. Martinez landed a good shot on Williams-it happens but his comp after that was just alright imo-HBO did a good job of hyping up his comp and down playn Chavez but the fact of the matter is Martinez has Pav and Williams-they are good names but Pav was in rehab when he fought Martinez and he struggled very badly to make weight and he was over 180 on fight night. I give him props but nowhere near what y’all try to give him. Williams was just a really good shot cause thats it-he wasn’t winning that fight-that fight was all about 1 punch that was dead on but after that those other guys wasn’t better than Lee or Rubio and even though I thought he beat Cintron-Cintron gave him a good fight-but a win is a win. Martinez been ready to lose and I think he’s going to get stopped on the 15th.

Undoubtedly, we will be havin a thrillin match-ups among the middleweights in September. To start with Golovkin vs Proksa , Sturm vs Geale, then Martinez vs Chavez Jr and of course Ward vs Dawson. It’s always good when top-tier fighters dont duck each other and fight like the old champs did. I wish guys from the other divisions did the same.

What about Martinz calling out Sturm?…….

Posted August 30, 2012 8:42 am 


Noone in todays MW are able to outbox with boxing skills Sturm but someone might be able to bully him to defeat.

Posted August 30, 2012 8:35 am 


I hate that writers always mention Germany as a place where it is impossible to win on points. FFS Gale won his belt in Germany and the last draw Sturm got was a robbery against Sturm! The worst place is by far US – just ask Sturm, Zbik, Martinez, Campillo, Chris John, Lara or many others :???:

Why did JS not mention Chavez’s fight with Zbik with one single word? At very very best Chavez should have had a draw in this fight – I had Zbik winning that fight with a couple of rounds.

Posted August 30, 2012 8:32 am 


good point drx. i hope golovkin turns out to be the genuine article. of all the middleweights out there,i dislike him the least. i hope he k.o.’s everyone at 160.lbs.there clowns.i want sergio to retire chavez jr.i dont know geale,sturm,………i saw him beat de la hoya and get robbed in ’03.i would like to see golovlin vs. martinez for undisputed,after they take care of buisness.sergio has proven he is a great fighter.i just don’t like hands down low.he should try that with golovkin.

Has the WBC pre 30 day weigh in taken place for Chavez/Martinez I read on here last week or so that it did for canelos fight

Posted August 30, 2012 6:39 am 

Dan D

What is skinnysteve on about? Hype? Martinez battered Williams and Pavlik, two guys at the time that were the top 160lb fighters out there. Chavex Junior needs to fight some LHW’s because, as things stand, he is fighting guys two divisions below his weight. I’m hoping Martinez floors him.

Posted August 30, 2012 6:33 am 


I agree with Dan, Geale outboxes Sturm & wins a close UD or SD.

Posted August 30, 2012 1:35 am 


Yeah, you’re right about that.
If he’s able to stay on Martinez constantly then the judges can argue that his aggression wins. But what makes me skeptical is that in the Andy Lee fight, it looked like Chavez could only throw punches when Andy Lee stopped moving… so it could be hard for them to justify a bad decision if Chavez simply hasn’t let his hands go.

Posted August 30, 2012 1:03 am 


Chavez could very well win a dirty, super-controversial, fixed decision. I would be so pissed off.

Posted August 29, 2012 11:49 pm 


Sturm is a joke. The fact that he hasn’t challenged Sergio Martinez to prove to himself that he is THE very best middleweight tells me everything I need to know about Sturm. No thank you……next!

Posted August 29, 2012 11:47 pm 


I’d go an a limb and say we’re gonna have Martinez winning by TKO (I don’t think he’ll actually knock Chavez down but will do enough damage for the ref to step in, maybe between rounds), Sturm by SD/MD but I think it’ll be very controversial (i.e. it’ll be the old “punch volume vs punch quality” argument… but I think most people other than the judges will score it for Geale), Ward by easy UD against a tentative Dawson, and Golovkin beating Proksa by mid round KO.

“His own hype?” He’s in everyone’s Top-10 PfP, and in most everyone’s Top-5 PfP. He’s dominated every challenger in the last few years, and it’s hype? What’s the guy need to do to get some respect — beat a Klitschko?

Posted August 29, 2012 10:05 pm 


The writer obviously has overlooked the fact that Daniel Geale actually won his IBF strap in Germany over a German fighter! Look for an upset in this fight, Geale will outbox Sturm……….

Posted August 29, 2012 9:17 pm 


the problem with “maravilla” is he believes his own hype pity the poor deluded fool

Posted August 29, 2012 8:03 pm 


Writer forgot to mention Golovkin vs Proksa
