I hate when they don't translate everything the boxer says.

I am an unapologetic Mayweather fan.  His command in the boxing ring is great.  Having said that, there are some fights I would have wanted to see.  Mayweather is a lot like Kobe, and I think that is why he appeals to me.  He is relentless in his training and he is a polarizing figure.  Anyway, as an athlete, Mayweather is amazing.

Dude, I'm so with you on this. They do this all the damn time on both HBO and Showtime. That's always been one of my biggest criticisms. Me knowing Spanish damn well I can confirm this to anyone. It's a disgrace. They leave out some of the more important details sometimes. I don't understand how or why none of these companies have seemingly realized this yet & made changes for the better. There has to be better options out there and I'm just certain they had to have received several complaints throughout the years. Sad thing is they probably can get away with it because they have enough or possibly the majority of their viewing public being Americans, who don't know Spanish at all & wouldn't know any better simply assuming the translations are fully accurate and they're getting everything they can.

does boxing have knockouts anymore or is everything decided?

Tons of knockouts. You just have to watch more boxing events on Showtime & HBO that is if you have those channels. It's sad just how many people miss out on truly great fights there, especially from golden boy. They tend to make the better fights more often than top rank these days over with Showtime. I'm not kidding you. Knockouts, bloody messes, just true battles back & forth. What most boxing fans & even casual fans obviously prefer. Crowd pleasers. I referred to it a bit in the previous page in my long post as well, but it's true.

 

You might not recognize all the names obviously if you're barely watching & what not & kinda new to it, but don't let that discourage you. I guarantee you there's a lot of good stuff out there. The main problem is simply that it's hard for most people to access it & know about it not having those channels as well as unfortunately most of those guys not getting as much mainstream pub. as some may deserve.

Freakin' school session!! Canelo looked like an unmotivated sparring partner out there. I thought he had more speed but he looked very, very slow compared to Floyd. I really was expected more out of him. 

 

I am an unapologetic Mayweather fan.  His command in the boxing ring is great.  Having said that, there are some fights I would have wanted to see.  Mayweather is a lot like Kobe, and I think that is why he appeals to me.  He is relentless in his training and he is a polarizing figure.  Anyway, as an athlete, Mayweather is amazing.

 

His hard work is what has won me over. People get rubbed wrong by how he flaunts his fortune. Perhaps they're really just jealous. 

 

Danny Garcia versus Floyd now?

 

I hope not...... But there really is no one left. Danny's most likely the best candidate,  ready or not.

Really? Please tell me why you think Bradley has the best chance of giving Floyd any trouble, if at all.

Pretty much. Sad state.

ready or not.

You're not. Here I come.

^   :laughing: estas loco!

 

But like Floyd said in All Access, they put fighters on his under card, build them up, & then take him out. Danny very well could be next.

^ Yeah, payday and from the promoters' perspective Khan because they think although he's not nearly as good a fighter as Garcia, at the end of the day, it's more about business and Khan draws a lot more than Garcia from his huge support in the UK & Europe. That's the thinking from what I hear, but if it were to happen, honestly, as rarely as Floyd knocks people out, he could very well easily knock out Khan with that famous glass jaw of his most people know about.

^ Canelo easily, but I knew realistically coming in his chances weren't very high & even more especially with the ill-advised style & technique his corner had prepared for him during the fight.
