I guess you Malignaggi fans believe that cracker jack belt they gave him means something right? This is such a bad state of boxing as two pathetic fighters were pitted against each other, and they were the main event. Smart boxing fans understand that this fight mean nothing. Malignaggi had the audacity in his post fight interview to say that this fight was between two world class fighters? What was he talking about? Wher were these world class fighters? I watched two world class bums. One wore a white dress and threw flickering feather punches at a guy that offered nothing, but fear, a big mouth and actually said in his post fight interview that malignaggi didn’t want to fight and moved well as he boxed? Brain damage for sure as I saw Malignaggi force the action. Judah has always been a heartless joke. Al Haymon told Malignaggi that if he won this fight, which meant nothing, that he would get big things. Hmm….Why would that be Mr Haymon. Both of these bums aren’t ranked and haven’t beaten anyone in years so I guess you and your corrupt ways will find a way to fix things as usual. I noticed that the fans were booing, and seconds after the fight, the arena was empty. Malignaggi and Judah embarrassed themselves, New York, the arena and all true boxing fans. Rigondeaux vs Agbeko and every other fight on TV was so much better and meant more than this pathetic fight. I guess cities can now make up their own belts and give them to fighters o they can feel like they’re real champions. Pathetic and disrespectful to this great sport. Malignaggi will go on as usual, run his mouth like he just won a world title, and his commentating crew will continue to lie about to him about how good he is knowing he’s horrible. There really should be a law tht doesn’t allow these type of circus acts to happen on tv. These fights hurt boxing and it’s reputation. This fight meant nothing. These two guys should have fought in their backyard and leave boxing for good. All the under card fights were decent. People appreciated them. Big Mouth Malignaggi vs Heartless Judah was simply pathetic.

Hidalgo…, The guy who I tab the underdog wins frequently.. You can’t say for sure who’s going to win.. only what you think the odds are.
I thought the Lara-Trout fight was a 50/50 matchup.. It wasn’t.. Lara fought like a 10:1 favorite.Posted December 8, 2013 4:57 am
My last post got chopped off… Paulie didn’t look good… Zab looked horrible. That has to be the worst he’s ever fought in his life.. He didn’t have enough power to piss.. He said he had cramps.. He looked like he had aging disease.Posted December 8, 2013 4:36 am
landed a lot more punches than Canelo, but got hit harder and suffered more damage over 12. lara landed much harder, and landed a lot more as Hidalgo you’re fight…
But Paulie didn’t look good… Zab looked weak, slow, light, skinny, small, frail, flaccid, lethargic, indolent, powerless, eggshell soft, and puppy tame … He was a cold fart that escapes a frozen cadaver.Posted December 8, 2013 4:31 am

“Malignaggi vs Juda, Judah wins unless it’s rigged up for big mouth Malignaggi since he works for Show Time.”
Dumbest thing I’ve ever seen you write, Hec Dog.
BTW, as I just notified Tark, Paulie beat Zab by a wider margin that Garcia did. On all cards.
Bummer, huh? Paulie didn’t just win, he dominated.Posted December 8, 2013 2:13 am
Tark said: “The Judah-Malignaggi fight would be 75/25 Judah if everything were equal—but if the fight is close it’s going to Paulie. So it’s more like 60/40. Nobody wants to hear Paulie cry, “What do I have to do to win?” and run his mouth for 5 minutes as to why he won the fight—while in his own mind taking the high road by praising Judah as a great fighter while slamming the officials. The close rounds are going to Paulie.”
Paulie dominated Judah, Tark. Every judge scored it as such. There goes your theory right out the window.Posted December 8, 2013 2:09 am
“Hidalgo… Right… Nobody likes a crybaby. Stop your sobbing Paulie.”
Oh Tarkeypoo? Paulie just beat Judah by a wider margin than Garcia did. On all cards.
You can stop crying about Paulie now. He’s much better than you think he is or give him credit for.Posted December 8, 2013 2:07 am
BTW Boxtra$$wipe, let me remind you of what you said about Paulie: “Judah’s punches are MUCH more effective than Paulie’s. You have to be PISS POOR to LOSE to Malignaggi.”
Paulie just beat Judah by a wider margin than Garcia did. But you weren’t calling Judah piss poor after he fought Garcia, were you?Posted December 8, 2013 2:05 am
“I think we have a better opponent for Floyd at 154… Lara looked great. Trout looked uncomfortable and his legs looked weak. ”
No kidding. Trout also looked like he wasn’t mentally there. I think Lara just aced him so badly he got depressed about mid-fight and just wilted from there.
Meanwhile, Lara put on a magnificent exhibition of back-pedaling. Truly world class.Posted December 8, 2013 2:02 am

I think we have a better opponent for Floyd at 154… Lara looked great. Trout looked uncomfortable and his legs looked weak.
Trout is a lousy attacker because he stays so low… his stance is too wide… and when he steps in he doesn’t bring his left foor, that is his rear foot, up so he keeps his stance… That was a main reason Lara found him with so many great lefts — he was so low, and reaching in so badly with his stance spread out so wide.
Trout landed more punches than Canelo — but couldn’t land nearly as many punches as Lara… That’s an eye opener.Posted December 7, 2013 11:21 pm

You accidentally posted under one of your alt Farrakhan.
John fought Rocky Juarez twice. That’s twice more than Broner and Floyd have ever dared step foot outside their country. And John has fought outside his country ten times, for 1/5th of his fights. That’s about double the amount of times Broner, Floyd, Ward and Hopkins have ever done so combined. Say what you will about him but at least he was prepared to travel, which is more than can be said for all your American PED cheats.
Yes it is easy to remain undefeated and build your record when you get home decisions ask Floyd, Broner, Alexander, Tim Bradley, Judah, Paul Williams, Brandon Rios, Tavoris Cloud, Evander Holyfield. Can you imagine how many losses they would’ve incurred had they not been so scared of leaving mommy and daddy?
John fought where made sense for him to fight. Oh wait that only applies to American fighters doesn’t it? hahaha. Mexico and Asia own the lower divisions.
Remind me how many American champions there are between 160 and heavyweight again? Them’s the divisions were the real men compete. I think you’re getting sharks confused with sturgeon. hahaha
How many Olympic medals did the USA win recently? Enjoying that cold wind blowing from the East. Don’t worry there’s plenty more on their way. hahaha.
Crazy to think how few champions above 160 and Olympic medalists you have considering the percentage of PED cheats there are over there and how rarely they’re prepared to leave mommy and daddy, ain’t it? hahahaPosted December 7, 2013 12:04 pm
Judah has the power but if Pauli doubles or triples the jab he will throw off judas timing. Judah does not have high punch output Pauli could pull this off. He took the best of Broner and Cotto who are hard punchers if the punch output is high Pauli could win Judah will tire after 6.Posted December 7, 2013 12:54 am
Trout – Lara could be a snoozefest with each guy waiting for the other guy to throw. But then Lara would lose I think on slightly higher Trout output, picking his shots. So it is up to Lara to go after him, be the pressure fighter, then this one could be the fight of the night! All bets are off!Posted December 6, 2013 9:39 pm
Alexander gets a bad rap I think as far as heart. He rose from humble and deadly beginnings to the top of the sporting world. He faced without hesitation Randal Bailey after that brutal one-punch KO of big Mike Jones, and faced spoiler Witter. He complained a bit after running into huge head of Bradley,which even established warrior Nate Campbell couldn’t handle. He is a good boxer, with good game plans,but maybe doesn’t adjust as well as the true master boxers, when plan A is not working. Porter will get in his face like Bradley did and try to outwork him. If Alexander can’t hurt him, this might go a bit like Brooks -Jones 1.Posted December 6, 2013 9:30 pm
“And the bookies would be WISE to make MY picks the Favorites.”
LMAO! Like Brandon Rios to KO Pacquiao? Not only were you WRONG you were so WRONG its hilarious. If you knew as much about boxing and present day fighters as you claim you do you wouldnt make such STUPID “predictions.”

The other “boxers” of the matchups are Rigo, who is not only the ultimate boxer we have today, but delivers piston-like power behind the accuracy. Brave warrior Agbeko may be stopped for the first time.Posted December 6, 2013 9:20 pm
you’re never wrong are you Tark? No wonder so many people on these boards don’t like you and give you grief and steal your handle and use it to say vulgar things about you.
You’re one opinion and it ain’t that great. Get over yourself.Posted December 6, 2013 9:17 pm
Yes to Dirrell, who hopefully shows the world his ability to box – we already know he can punch – because we haven’t seen anyone beating Bika up by trading with him. KO would indeed be impressive but maybe too much to hope for.Posted December 6, 2013 9:14 pm
Like Joe Frazier’s book says, boxer beats slugger, pressure fighter beats boxer, slugger beats pressure fighter, all things being equal. Judah’s gonna step up the pressure like Broner did when he couldn’t outbox the pure boxer Paulie. Paulie has the toughest task of the “boxers” tonight, because he lacks clear superiority in boxing ability over Judah, who seems to lose to guys that can hurt him. While Paulie lost to pressure fighter Hatton.Posted December 6, 2013 9:10 pm
Zab, Lara and Dirrell win by UD, UD and TKO. Now if Anthony Dirrell is able to stop Bika guys better take note. He’s a gifted puncher and skilled boxer but Bika is rock solid. KOing him is a big deal because nobody else could.Posted December 6, 2013 9:07 pm
“FA You don’t like Chris John either? LOL…” – TC, I was never a fan but had no gripes with him. It’s certainly news that his title reign came to an end at 19 defenses. Why ESB posts 3 stories on Barker-Sturrm but nothing on that is beyond me.Posted December 6, 2013 9:05 pm
The main reason why I lean towards Judah, is because of PM’s lack of punching power. Judah’s not going to worry about getting koed and open up more. Still one judge might give it to PM. Judah SD, win with a slight chance of a draw…Posted December 6, 2013 8:47 pm
Chris John fought who in the US again? He fought a short midget Rocky Juarez who closes his eyes everytime he punches and not a champion as I recall. Fought him twice and even though Rocky wasnt a beast compared to other fighters, it was enough to discourage Chris and made him run for the hills back to Indonesia after his first paychecks. Its easy when you get home decisions to stay undefeated. Hatton was undefeated also….UNTIL….thats right. So Chris John should come out and play more often with the sharks. Dont be scared of leaving mommy and daddy….Posted December 6, 2013 8:46 pm
neither Trout or Lara have impressed me with their ferocity but i think that the fighter who dares greatness will win that bout. i’m leaning towards Trout not being the aggressor but successfully landing the stronger punches with clean counters. Malignaggi over Judah. expecting two consecutive impressive performances from Judah these days is unlikely and i think Malignaggi is the hungrier of the two. besides and IMO, “Super Erratic” Judah has yet to shed his reputation for meltdowns and implosions.Posted December 6, 2013 7:55 pm
I like these matchesPosted December 6, 2013 7:13 pm
You’re not funny. Racist and ignorant, yes. But never ever funny. But by all means keep plugging away at it. I’m sure the crickets are amused.
John fought in America twice. Asia and Mexico rule the lower weights.
Eastern Europe’s and Germany got the heavyweight and cruiserweight division on lockdown.
Kovalev should have three belts at light heavyweight what with him beating the rightful WBA and IBF champion Campillo who was robbed against Cloud and Shumenov.
Froch and Steglitz own 75% of super middleweight.
Golovkin, Martinez and Barker own 75% of middleweight.
America has the best drugs in the world but they only have two champions from 160 to heavyweight. hahahahahPosted December 6, 2013 7:08 pm
Thanks Deepwater, actually I think Porter could pull off an upset, but the safe bet would have to be Alexander by UD, IMO… I really like Bika, but I think Dirrell is going surprise a lot of fans, in this step up in class fight, for himself…Posted December 6, 2013 6:56 pm
The FACT is that the majority of the World’s BEST Fighters Fight in the USA at some point. NOT Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, and Australia. That’s called hiding OUT from the competition. Those WHO are looking for the BEST competition come the US of A. Not go to Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia….Chris John saw the competition was going to get TOO STIFF and the Judges weren’t going to DO him favors like they DO in Indonesia SO he RAN back to Timbucktoo. Come back and play with the Big BOYS of Boxing in the USA. Where the SHARKS swim in the Waters hungry to eat you UP. Even RAN the Great Pacquiao out of the country with a knockout LOSS on his record. They don’t DO Great Fighters like that in Japan, Singapore and Indonesia. GREAT Fighters usually come out of those countries UNSCATHED….OH I forgot that Tyson got SPANKED in Japan but an AMERICAN DID that TO him. Not the local competition.Posted December 6, 2013 6:46 pm

Pacquiao took on a #0 P4P NON CHAMP TOO. That’s probably why Floyd’s taking a gimme Fight. He’s not going to let you guys catch UP to him by taking on light competition and waiting for him to falter.Posted December 6, 2013 6:08 pm
Rigo needs to start TREASURE hunting. You’re Top 2 in the World based on SKILLS. YOU need Championship Fight after Championship Fight collecting title after title IF you’re not facing Top 10 P4Pers. Learn how to KEEP challenging yourself. That’s what the GREAT ones DO. Agbeko is even LESSER than Mares. That is NOT a challenge for YOU. Ward gets a pass because he’s coming OFF surgery and needed to test his recovery before taking on a CHAMP. But you and Ward need to push Floyd. He’s been in a league of his OWN SO long that now he’s falling back to rest of the pack by taking on #0 P4P NON CHAMPS even though he could easily DO otherwise….That’s not how its supposed to work. He’s suppose to want to take on a Top Flight opponent and perform at his BEST like after YOU and Ward beat Dawson and Donaire. Set the bar HIGH not LOW.Posted December 6, 2013 6:05 pm
Lara is more SKILLED than Trout and Judah’s punches are MUCH more effective than Paulie’s. You have to be PISS POOR to LOSE to Malignaggi. He has to outland you about 4 or 5 to 1 to be more effective. His punches are even LESSER than slaps. Calzaghe agrees with ME on that…..Trout needs to take a RELAXATION class. When he puts TOO MUCH pressure on himself he can’t perform. That’s the difference between himself and Floyd. The more pressure Floyd puts on himself the more SPECTACULARLY he performs. That’s why HE’S the GOAT and Trout’s not…..Lara is simply BETTER at hitting and not getting hit. And when he needs to turn it UP he can turn it UP. Judah and Lara for the WINS. And the bookies would be WISE to make MY picks the Favorites.Posted December 6, 2013 5:56 pm

Trout was robbed blind against Alvarez. Really irks me how they did him that way. Alvarez isn’t nothing. He’d been on the OAP and bum carousel for his entire career and then the second the stuck him in there against a live opponent who still had a pulse he needed a gift to pull through.Posted December 6, 2013 4:53 pm

“Nobody wants to hear Paulie cry,”
Paulie Malignaggi that never quits?
Paulie Malignaggi that accepts any challenge?
Two-time world champion Paulie Malilgnaggi?
Keeps swinging even when he’s out on his feet Paulie Malignaggi?
Endless courage and heart Paulie Malignaggi?
I dunno, I suppose his “crying” is much less worse than Miguel Cotto waiting for nearly two years before claiming that fighting at a catchweight against Manny Pacquiao weakened him and was unfair.
I suppose his “crying” is much less worse than Juan Manuel Marquez’s and Nacho Beristein’s crying insults against everyone else every time they lose a fight–seven times–count them.
I suppose “I don’t do catchweights” Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a bigger liar than Paulie is. Twice.
I suppose David Haye’s bad toe excuse for his gutless performance against Wlad Klitschko is much worse than Paulie’s “crying.” Not to mention Haye’s habit of backing out of fights.
I suppose Mike Tyson biting of parts of both of Evander Holyfield’s ears is much worse than any “crying” Paulie ever did.
Paulie has never done any of that crap but all you can do is criticize him for his “crying.”Posted December 6, 2013 3:59 pm

Paulie never fought a fixed fight in his life. He isn’t going to start now.
Trout over Lara
Don’t know the odds but IMO Judah vs Paulie is not a 50-50 fight. Zab should be a 2/1 favorite so if he’s not that’s an easy value bet to play. Lara also should be the fave over Trout, though that one is closer on paper.Posted December 6, 2013 3:32 pm
paulie is gonna retire after this. he is getting a few 100 grand and judah is gonna let him finish the fight on his feet. its fixed.Posted December 6, 2013 3:07 pm
Malignaggi vs Juda, Judah wins unless it’s rigged up for big mouth Malignaggi since he works for Show Time. The only reason for this fight to be the main event is because they’re both from NY otherwise they would be the warm up fight for the rest. Hope Judah reires him for good.
Porter will pull off the upset over the most boring fighter ever in Alexander. He must push the pace and watch Alexander lose heart and break down. No heart.
Bika should win a UD or stop over Dirrel. He’s the more experienced and stronger guy that has been tested. Dirrel is going to do some running, and his length will cause Bika some problems, but in the end, Bika’s pressure will wear him down.
Trout vs Lara should be a good match. Both southpaws that have good speed and light power. I’m taking Lara to win this one even though he had a tough go with Angulo. trout isn’t very strong. UD for LaraPosted December 6, 2013 2:25 pm
Only one fight is 50/50… The Judah-Malignaggi fight would be 75/25 Judah if everything were equal—but if the fight is close it’s going to Paulie. So it’s more like 60/40. Nobody wants to hear Paulie cry, “What do I have to do to win?” and run his mouth for 5 minutes as to why he won the fight—while in his own mind taking the high road by praising Judah as a great fighter while slamming the officials. The close rounds are going to Paulie.
On the other hand, if Judah gets robbed he’ll try to be a gentleman and sportsman about it. He bought himself some goodwill in the Garcia fight, and he doesn’t want to blow that in one night. Zab thinks of himself as kind of an elder statesman now—which is amusing but it is what it is. He needs to give Paulie a boxing lesson if he wants to win. He needs 9 rounds.
Trout-Lara is close, with a slight edge to Trout. Cubans don’t get a lot of favors here. Trout needs to stay busy and not get knocked down. Getting knocked down tends to cost you close rounds that follow the knockdown round. Trout’s pins looked a little shaky versus Canelo—so Lara has to be confident he can hurt him.. Or maybe overconfident.. Trout is still a good boxer.Posted December 6, 2013 2:22 pm
