Nice try Hamster.., but give it a rest.
Or bring your best lightweights from the Commonwealth of Independent States against Crawford… He’ll beat them all.Posted July 2, 2014 2:46 am
I am noone try to be funny like your USA comedian Marty Allen, I much enjoy his performance.
I simply point out tactical deficiency of USA fighter from my many years of experience.
Mr Terence Crawford is low skill. Will lose to first good boxer his own size who has jab.
I not understand your anger. You like to do same about many fighter.Posted July 1, 2014 4:14 pm
Right.., Defense, defense, defence… Fat lips indeed
I think everyone realizes you’re trying to be funny Hamster.Posted July 1, 2014 8:15 am
I teach defence, defence defence. Before fighter go crazy on heavy bag, he must learn defence.Posted July 1, 2014 4:52 am
Mr TARK, Lomachenko is come up and destroy substandard Americans with poor defence.
If you are America boxing coach, you ae part of problem and reason why the American boxers, especially the children of the jungle end up punch so much and get big fat lips and flat nose.Posted July 1, 2014 4:51 am
My azz is wet watching that hot chocolate crawfordPosted June 30, 2014 7:17 pm
Gamboa is very fast and sharp… He’s a very speedy and dangerous hitter … and he’s not done as a good fighter.
He needs massive concentration on his defense.. His stance, defense, and temperament start breaking down as soon as he gets hit with a hard shot…
Wladimir Klitschko had exactly the same problems… Wladimir sought help like a SOB because he owned up to what was happening to him.. He wasn’t blinded to where his skills were at.. This takes some clear thinking … It’s up to Gamboa to determine his own future.
At some point you have to reflect and say, “All right… I’ve been boxing for 23 years, and for some reason my defense sucks doorknob… Do I have the intelligence and character to seek help and change all that … or not???”Posted June 30, 2014 7:14 pm
It was a great fight because there was suspense. Even as late as the ninth round either fighter could score the KO.Both were in deep trouble in th 9th. Gamboa was one punch away from winning the fight.Posted June 30, 2014 6:37 pm
Crawford should unify 135 if the others will step up. After the way he dismantled Gamboa I don’t expect his phone to be ringing much. As for Gamboa, he should move to 130 and stay off the Biogenesis drugs. Note this is his first fight since he got outed, so it’s less likely he was juicing up. Better to lose fairly than win by cheating.Posted June 30, 2014 5:50 pm
I think almost everyone new that Crawford was going to win this fight Gamboa was just too small and too chinny for stepping in against a world class lightweight that can bang abit.Posted June 30, 2014 5:40 pm
V.Khmil.., The jab is the punch that the greatest boxers work the hardest at defending… If you shut down the jab of a top boxer you pretty much have him beat… They were both working very hard to accomplish this, but obviously Crawford did the better job stopping the incoming from the 4th round on.
Gamboa won the first 3 rounds with his exceptional speed and power.. He put Crawford in a deep hole.. Terence had to shut all that down … and he figured it out.
Where are our Ukranian, Kazakhstanian, and Russian lightweights you airbag???
Why aren’t they making any headway through the division??? Let’s see all your magnificent charges come up and give Crawford some competition… you stupid, fraudulent MFer.Posted June 30, 2014 5:31 pm
Crawford vs broner is the fight that needs to happenPosted June 30, 2014 4:35 pm
Okay maybe I make too big remark on compare to 11 year old, this is exaggerate to make hyperbowl.
Let me make statistic with the computerbox.
In no round of fight Gamboa land more than 2 jab.
In every round both fighter land more powerpunch than jab.
This equal entertainment but not high skill boxing. How many time superchamp fighter like Klitschko, Mayweather, Ward or Rigondeaux land more powerpunch than jab every round?
Too much aggressive in the hear not enough Siberia in the brain.Posted June 30, 2014 4:07 pm
And they said gamboa would give pacquiao problems..lmaooo do aire would beat gamboa IMO anydayPosted June 30, 2014 1:54 pm

Mr. Tark. Anonymous is no friend of mine. He is fellow American. Fat, bald and stupid like you. I look into your resume and you say you boxing coach. I nearly spill my vodka. I only say 1 thing to you. Wilder. Here in Ukraine we are still laughing at you Mr. Tark. майте хороший деньPosted June 30, 2014 9:48 am
Mr. Tark speaks with forked tongue. I trainer 35 years and you ass hole more than 50 years. That is the difference.Posted June 30, 2014 9:42 am
I think the guy saying this is just an “amateur looking contest is going to far” that said Gamboas responses and attacks began looking “amateur” as the fight wore on, he was coming in WIDE open, no jab and flailing at times… He seemed to fight desperate and looked winded, it was reminiscent (absent the fatigue) of the way Tim Bradley can get when he is being overaggressive… Obviously Gamboa has ALOT of talent that got him this far in boxing but his defense lapses and frequent trips to the canvas finally caught up with him this time.Posted June 30, 2014 9:22 am
Maybe Camel Nose Mikey PEDs Garcia will want to Challenge Gamboa now?? because we all know he’s not going to fight Crawford…Posted June 30, 2014 7:57 am
Gamboa was just too small and after the PED’s accusations he seemed to go into hiding and now doesn’t seem to have much power?? hmmmm.. whatcha gonna do? possibly another exposed cheat without his PED’s, Cement WRaps, Weight Advantage, Steriods, all the same cheaters.. Hopefully GlassJawah gets the fk away from wannabee Promoter Filthy Scents and get his life in order…Posted June 30, 2014 7:54 am
We’ll see if Mikey PEDs Garcia starts avoiding Crawford.. We all know Crawford beat Mikey Garcia twice in the Amateurs, lets see if the Mexican has the Ballzzz to take on Crawford or if he continues to try and find weight drained 126lb’ers..Posted June 30, 2014 7:51 am
Gamboa loses by CRUNCHING punishment exactly as I predicted. I am the GREATEST fight prophet ever born!!!!Posted June 30, 2014 7:27 am
Anonymous.., You’re an idiot and so is V. Khmil.
This was a very high level boxing match.. Even an exceptional world title fight.. Sharp jabs and footwork, sharp leads and counters.. And nobody flailing around with their arms in a manner that would embarrass an 11 year old amateur.
You guys are two pompous, racist idiots, pretending to be knowledgeable about Boxing fundamentals… You, and your idiot friend V. Khmil.Posted June 30, 2014 7:05 am
I am no racist. Maybe my language sound bad to American ear because I talk very simple direct about color and what the best it’s for the tinted and the clean.Posted June 30, 2014 7:01 am
V.Khmil. Even scumbag racists like you can be right once in a while. Heck, a stopped clock is right twice a day. Both fighters showed loads of flaws in Nebraska Saturday night and are lucky the division is weaker than your flawed IQ. Have a nice day.Posted June 30, 2014 6:31 am
I did not say he has amateur style. I say he has low ability, and participate in low skill fight.
An amateur style can be very skill. Two boxers just flaying around with their arms and no defence as in this contest though was poor.
saying that Crawford has an amateur style tells me you have no boxing knowledge.Posted June 30, 2014 1:01 am
There is only one tainted fighter that I advise my student is good technical in the USA to watch the video for, and that is the individual Andre Ward, and he is only slightly tainted.Posted June 30, 2014 1:00 am

It is incredible that such low skill contest was for world champion title. I have train 11 year old in both USA and Ukraine with more ability than these dusky fighters.
They have been coach by some kind of low IQ moron.
They need to be re-educate right back from start, starting with stance and chessmaster jab.Posted June 30, 2014 12:40 am

I don’t see Gamboa beating 4 out of the top fight ranked fighters at light weight. He needs to move down.Posted June 29, 2014 10:00 pm
impressions of u
Go the reds!!Posted June 29, 2014 10:00 pm
135 is definitely NOT TOO Big for Gamboa. Crawford is TOO GOOD for him. Gamboa would have beaten PLENTY of Lightweights last night. He just couldn’t beat Crawford.. Similar to Marquez and how he could defeat PLENTY of WW’s. He just couldn’t beat Mayweather.Posted June 29, 2014 8:34 pm
I agree I think Gamboa should move back down, however it was a good win for Crawford. This guy is the goodsPosted June 29, 2014 8:07 pm

135 is definitely to big for Gamboa. He definitely needs to step back down. He may have trouble though with all that muscle he put on. Unfortunately he is tied to 50 and that is going to mess up his career anyways.Posted June 29, 2014 7:33 pm
This pundit says.., “Looking for all the world like a Thomas Hearns clone, Crawford displayed power, accuracy, speed.”
Not quite a Thomas Hearns clone… Lucky for Terence.
He DID show the power, speed, and accuracy — but he displayed a pretty good chin, a clever defense, and ring smarts to complete the package.
This kid is a good thinker, which couldn’t be said of Hearns… Terence saw that a tall southpaw could take advantage of the speedy Gamboa’s low left hand with deft right jabs and hooks.
Roy Jones wasn’t too sure about the tactic.. Crawford went with it all the way
The stance switch didn’t work well right away… most things don’t… but Crawford stuck with it. He started getting great leather on the speedy and powerful Gamboa, and presented YG with his 1st defeat … Great job!!!Posted June 29, 2014 7:30 pm
Oracle talks even more crapola than his creator Boxtradamus.Posted June 29, 2014 7:10 pm
Agreed,good stoppage but Gamboa is a featherweight he should get his lazy inactive aZZ back down there.Posted June 29, 2014 7:03 pm
This was a case of a amateur that could only go 4 good rounds and a pro that could go 12 rounds Gamboa need to back down to 130 and get himself a real trainer his dad is only a amateur trainerPosted June 29, 2014 6:51 pm
Top postings posters, some valid points made here, for both guys, good win for Crawford, good comments .Posted June 29, 2014 5:58 pm
Gamboa should step down in weight and get with Freddie Roach… And refuse and PEDs that are tossed his way.Posted June 29, 2014 4:53 pm

Boxtradamus. As I have always have in this world I want to guide you to correct way. Do not engage in fighting back with the certain clowns on this board because it’s simply not worth it. The real fans as well as the real people here know exactly which posts are yours versus the impostors. It’s very easy to do once you actually looking to the context of the post. I as well as several other people on the site know you know your prediction accuracy rate is in the very high 90 percentile.
And finally I recommend refraining from the GREATEST fight prophet EVER born!!!” In your messages. WE KNOW you are and that much cannot be questioned.
One day you MAY make the final step of becoming an Oracle in your journey to boxing IMMORALITY.
Continue to bet based on your predictions and live well off as that should be satisfaction in itself.

One of the best fights I have seen in recent years….and not on PPV!! Thanks HBO. First time I got to see Crawford. Nice job. Showed some grit, but took a lot of punches from Gamboa. He did mad adjustments like all the greats. Wait and see though because Gamboa was very inactive the last couple of years and may have finished Crawford if he was sharper. Does Gamboa have no punch at that weight? It was a bit alarming how cleanly Crawford was getting hit by the shorter man and it only looked like it really hurt him towards the end of the fight and even then he tied up well. I’d like to see him against someone of similar stature. The heart and warrior spirit displayed by Gamboa surprised me. If he can find a top level trainer he can still make waves. He kept coming forward and was willing to go through hell to win. Great fight!!Posted June 29, 2014 4:01 pm
Crawford is a special fighter. He reminds me more of Whitaker than Hearns. He is more controlled than Hearns and analitical like sweet pea. This guy has a bright future. Gamboa is talented and athletic, he has a lot left but TC is a unique fighter.Posted June 29, 2014 3:45 pm
SRedmond and 100 z Oball: Right on! If Gamboa read your comments and took them to heart, he would be so much better off. He needs a trainer who can work on his flaws like Roach working on Cotto’s. Mayweather Sr. is a defense wizard, so not too smart of Gamboa to have someone like him.Posted June 29, 2014 3:20 pm
Gamboa has never had much defense to speak of and lacks balance when leaning in; has no good trainer. Should have stayed with Mayweather Sr. Bad for Gamboa because he’s so talented — just needs to have the right people around him. He could take a page out of Cotto’s book on that and needs to go back to lower weight. Last night he looked a bit awkward as if too much weight on frame — kind of reminded of Marquez’s looks and dull movements when he gained weight to fight Mayweather Jr.Posted June 29, 2014 3:13 pm
As I predicted. I am the greatest twatever bornPosted June 29, 2014 1:53 pm
I saw a natural jw /ww knocked out a natural fw. Even then Gamboa outmaneuvered for four rounds and even hurt the champ once or twice. Wondering whats going to happen when he moves up. Gamboa should go to jlw.Posted June 29, 2014 1:15 pm
Gamboa is in a tough spot. He gained 9 pounds after the weigh-in, I think he’s stuck in this division. Undersized for the division, he’ll be relevant as long as his reflexes last, and at his age, they won’t last much longer.Posted June 29, 2014 1:09 pm
I didn’t make. Prediction for this fight. But I sure wouldn’t have picked Gamboa with that huge size disadvantage. Still he went out on his shield, so he deserves props.Posted June 29, 2014 12:45 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 thoughtPosted June 29, 2014 12:35 pm
Gamboa needs to temper that reckless aggression it has gotten him flash knocked down on more than one occasion, he’s 32 now and sooner or later you get put in some trouble you cannot get out of, most 135 pounders won’t be as tall as Crawford so going back down is his choice but that leaky defense has to be addressed of more nights like last will occur..Posted June 29, 2014 12:22 pm
You predicted Gamboa would win, you bell end. Well done TC.Posted June 29, 2014 12:17 pm
Just as I predicted!!!! I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born! !!!!Posted June 29, 2014 11:57 am
Gamboa ain’t no LW and hasn’t fought in a year wtf was 50 thinking.good win for Crawford but doesn’t really show where he’s at in the division. Was gutted for gamboa to be honest heart of a lion. hope he moves back down to superfeather and stays active. Still believe he can be a long reigning champion at that weight.Posted June 29, 2014 11:49 am
Gamboas lunging finally caught up to him, he’s so fast that he escapes serious hurt against other boxers but last night was the comeuppance for the talented Gamboa..Posted June 29, 2014 11:45 am
Crawford did what he had to do as I expected and Gamboa flawed defence was his undoing. I see a lot of fighters looking the other way now having seen what Crawford did to Gamboa.Posted June 29, 2014 10:57 am
Crawford has the total package n seems to b a class act as wellPosted June 29, 2014 10:55 am
I’ll admit I figured Crawford would really slice and dice Gamboa up, but Gambao showed a heart of a champion, threw caution to the wind, and used his physicality to go for the upset. Hats off to both fighters! Saying that I think Crawford proved, without a doubt, that he’s an elite fighter.Posted June 29, 2014 10:54 am
Crawford’s composure and focus were impressive – he didn’t get rattled or demoralized in the first 4 rounds – just calmly made adjustments. Gamboa put it all on the line.Posted June 29, 2014 10:41 am
Crawford has a quality win last night and fought back even harder after being buzzed. Gamboa fought well in the begining and then the wheels fell off after the 5th round, too much time off and not enough fights. Gamboa’s defense was always suspect and last night proved to be his undoing. I will always wonder what Gamboa could have become if he had the right people around him. None the less great win for Crawford.Posted June 29, 2014 10:29 am
Great fight!Posted June 29, 2014 10:27 am
Good win for Crawford and a chance to land a good payday. He did what he was supposed to do against a dangerous challenger. Now he must prove himself against fighters his “own size” and whom take their craft more seriously. May not sound fair to show some reservation on whether or not he’ll do great against the bigger guys, but a win against a smaller/inactive opponent doesn’t automatically makes Crawford the guy to beat. He has what it takes; now he must prove he can deliver.
For Gamboa is time to reflect on whether or not he wants to take his craft more seriously. He has the tools, but perhaps lacks the desire. He can start by fighting more often; inactivity doesn’t do the body good. He has power, which makes for exciting fights, but he needs to fight. It’s up to him where he go from here.Posted June 29, 2014 10:23 am

Terence Crawford! Great victory!Posted June 29, 2014 10:12 am
As far as Crawford, he has the skills and intelligence to fight against anyone in his division, which is not the best talented division in boxing, nonetheless, he’s no walkover.Posted June 29, 2014 10:05 am
Gamboa’s corner should have stopped it before the ref did. Yes, Gamboa wanted to go on as many fighters do, but he was hurt from the knockdowns. His corner could have saved him from the prolonged beating. Corners not stepping in is why many fighters get badly hurt. Someone needs to know when enough is enough.Posted June 29, 2014 10:04 am
Gamboa needs better defense for sure and with his current trainer, that’s not possible. Aside from the fact he has not fought in year didn’t help him either. He’s good, just needs a few tools, more activity and he can be a formidable force. I respect him even more for moving up in weight at this stage in his career which shows tenacity and guts, unlike some pretenders who fight only those they KNOW they can beat and then want to be recognized as ATG, P4P or whatever they think of themselves.Posted June 29, 2014 10:03 am
wtf was gamboa doing fighting at LW – and after being so inactive. Idiot movePosted June 29, 2014 9:14 am
I guess its not the same without PEDPosted June 29, 2014 9:04 am
Good win, but let’s not forget he had a huge size and reach advantage against a chinny fighter who’s not exactly a defensive wizard.
Wait and see. Lomachenko v Russel is a good reminder not to be blindsighted by bum-padded perfect records.Posted June 29, 2014 8:26 am
Great win for Crawford last night!Posted June 29, 2014 8:11 am
