well what do you know!! WBC will score with a 10-9 system... and i am not kidding
They are using former boxers to judge from a remote location: Christy Martin, Chad Dawson and Vinny Pazienza.

I wonder who's going to referee this monstrosity?

Re: MIKE TYSON vs ROY JONES Jr Saturday

No knockouts allowed. How do you even enforce a rule like that LOL. Any type of cut will end the fight. No official winner will be declared. Only the WBC is scoring this stupidity, and it's kind of fitting. I believe the Tyson-Jones debacle will be hurt most by the fact that there are fights on the ...

Re: Crawford: Fights With Top Welterweights Will Happen When Media, Public Demand It

Crawford has nobody but himself to blame for his predicament. He chose to sign with Top Rank because they gave him a high guarantee. He makes something like $2.5 - $3 million no matter who he fights. Problem is he chose to sign with a promotion (Top Rank) that had a grand total of ZERO known, ranked...

Re: TEO LOPEZ defeated LOMA by UD

I had it a draw. My scorecard was identical to Andre Wards. I have thought for years now that the judges should be watching on TV monitors and not sitting ringside where their view can be blocked making it impossible to see critical events occurring during a round. For example, the ref being in the ...

Re: Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match postponed | Why and to when?

It's been pushed back to November 28th and from what I've read the reason is that they see a lot of interest in this shit show of a PPV so they want to produce a 24/7 style lead up reality series that will have 10 episodes.

But it was Phillipines, Mexican and then US anthems. One after another. It was ridiculous. Only time a national anthem should be...

Re: Of course Mike Tyson should never fight as a pro again. But he might get offers to do so.

If Mike Tyson is motivated by money to get back in the ring I don't think he should be fighting other boxers that are in their 50's. I just don't see that selling all that well and I don't think Tyson can stay motivated long enough to string some wins together in order to get a really big payday, wh...

Pac-Barrera II. I think Barrera was saying his loss in the first fight was a fluke or something to that effect. Then in the rematch we saw something we rarely ever saw from Barrera...he didn't want to trade with Manny at all. He was just in there for the payday and seemed like all he wanted to do wa...

Re: Top3 Fav Boxer Matchups you wish you could've seen live

I was at the first Pac-Morales fight. I'm a huge Morales fan. He was rarely in a boring or bad fight. That's why I liked him so much. The other guys at his weight class were always capable of turning in a stinker like Marquez, even Barrera sometimes. IMO Pac and Morales were 100% worth the price of ...
