hella international
I think Tarver was a spot on


"[Bivol] fought too controlled"

Funny, because that's exactly why Bivol was so underrated going into the Canelo fight... Bivol going 12 rounds instead of stopping his recent opposition made a lot of people think he was going to get ran over.

This is a new show I’ve been watching out of Japan. “Boxer’s Road”. They upload the episodes on the official PXB Youtube. It’s basically like Japan’s version of the contender, trying to maximize the potential for average boxers that are 3-0 etc, and not highly touted prospects. What’s cool is that they are picked by trainers at other gyms which is traditionally a taboo for boxing there.

I don’t understand a word, but so far it’s a great show (especially when weeded up). Some of the coaches are Akira Yaegashi and Andy Hiraoka’a dad (who is a mean mean G on the show lol).









the next episode should be out in a few days

Thanks. Can't dap atm but really appreciate the link.

So the smilies don't work yet or is it just my lap top? As for th site coughing a bit still but stable now, the new skin looks nice

Buatsi vs Richards was good action, Buatsi deserved a W though I didn't score, but he didn't make a big statement either

The other two main events were even bigger mismatches than they looked to be on paper smh

Wilder has been cheated all 3 fights. I get it
How he get cheated in the third?

I mean, i've heard the discussions for the previous two. But the third?

If Jay Elec rephrased that to 'Deontay Wilder the true fundamentally bereft, one punch heavyweight champion of the world' then perhaps we got a discussion.

Fast eddie has aired 2 legit FOTY candidates and the biggest high profile upset in boxing in 2022. Its been a pretty good year for him so far

Think AJ vs Usyk 2 is announced next week. Canelo will also be deciding whether it’s GGG or Bivol next. Also a Chisora fight for 9th June, possibly against Kownacki and an apparent big step up for Conor Benn around September ish.
