Boxings Random Ramblings
by Robert Jackson - Arthur Abraham says he wants to be an "American Boxing Star", it'll take a while longer and maybe NEVER happen, since he paused before decking the downed Andre Dirrell in Detroit's Joe Louis Arena this past Saturday. Any fan could see the frustration building in the Armenian who fights out of Germany as the rounds wore on. To his credit he was coming on in the late rounds of that fight but was way behind on the score cards I'm sure. The State Athletic Commissions should see to it that those painted on advertisements in the ring, which are smooth should be on the outside of ring ropes because those slippery things are a catastrophe waiting to happen..

Next up Hopkins/Jones, don't see Roy doing much to 'right his ship' he hasn't added any NEW wrinkles to his game since Jawny Ruiz. Hopkins has added Nazim Richardson in the place of Bouie Fisher and has also gone to some hi-tech training routines to keep his game fresh. Roy will probably end the night on his back. Roy believing that he can beat Hopkins again just because he beat him the first time is ludicrous.
2 weekends ago Wladdy Klitschko ended Fast Eddie Chambers hope for a heavyweight title with a 12th round KO. The Klitschko's, Shannon Briggs, Tony Thompson, Valuev and any heavyweight 6'5" 240lbs and up are SUPER HEAVYWEIGHTS!! The same people who would say that Floyd Mayweather only beat Juan Manuel Marquez because of his size should REALLY apply this same logic to the Klitschko's!!
What's up with Joan Guzman?? At the end of his rematch Saturday night against Ali Funeka, he celebrated in the RING like he had won the lottery. He should have been MORE humble considering he was overweight again (9 lbs) and STILL Funeka decided to fight him. I think Guzman is a very talented guy but his lack of discipline stinks!!
While waiting for the for the Abraham/Dirrell fight to come on at 9:00pm central time my son and I tuned into the UFC 111 preliminary fights and got a chance to see IMO one of the best MMAers out there Nick Diaz, what a fight this kid put on and up until the point that he locked the choke onto his opponents neck he BOXED primarily!!
