    Don King is crazy lol. But what is Trinidad thinking?? He's going to walk in at 170 inand beat Greatness?? I don't think so...RJJ is too quick, too strong, and too smart for Trinidad. Plus Roy actually like a human being instead of a slow loser. B-Hop KO'ed him...now it's time for RJ to do the same. RJ KO by 9. It's time for RJ to be back on top of the game again at the age of 38...

    Mayweather v Hatton has the potential to be the best fight of that division for the past 5 years. Hatton is going into it with a far better attitude but I think Mayweather is the better boxer technically. Whether he can take Hatton's body punching is a different matter and we all know Hatton cuts easy. It will be an incredible fight either way.

    Good to talk boxing with you. Mos def, Mayweather is the more technically sound boxer but like what you said Pretty Boy doesn't like to get hit...especially body punches so we'll see how he handles them. He said that it's going to be a toe-to-toe fight...I'll believe it when I see it. I want to see the RJJ vs. Trinidad fight but I don't think Trinidad will put up much opposition...

    These are two of my favorite fighters of all time, and its going to be sad to see one of them go out like this. Years ago Jones would have absolutely murdered and embarrassed him, but unfortunately, this year Jones is the one thats going to be badly beaten. Tito is still young, and I think he was just made to look farther past it then he is by Wrights game plan and brilliant defense. Wright was the worst possible match up for Tito.

    Roy lays on the ropes way too much nowadays and has a very suspect chin at this stage of his career. When he's in the center of the ring he will get off first because he still has his speed, but Tito will push him back and force him to fight off the ropes, a fight that will be welcomed by the suddenly lazy and lethargic version of Roy Jones. Watch the Glenn Johnson fight and then bet your ass that this will be a repeat. Tito is still a step up from the competition Jones has been facing. He has power, he has heart and he has a relentless fighting style. Unlike Roy, Tito gets up when he's knocked down. Jones to lose another by KO.....to a former Welterweight.

    yea just finished watching it...great TKO by Pavlick. But did anyone catch Pavlick trying to say "punch me" before he got hit with 5 consecutive hooks before getting dropped? lol Dawson was awesome in his title fight. Wasn't much of a fight though. Berto won by KO prolly the 2nd best fight of the night.
    If Roy was going to fight Taylor which was planned if he won that fight and if RJ beats Trinidad (which he probably will), then roy's hand speed would have been too much for Taylor's porous defense. Kinda like what will happen against trinidad. Regardless RJ will never return to the old RJ P4P untouchable form but like what so many people say, 50% of roy is better than 95% of talent that is currently in boxing.

    Taylor got owned...Pavlik is a monster. Dude is predictable like Cotto, but still unstoppable.

    Big misconception of the art of boxing...just because you get starched doesn't mean you got owned. Taylor was up on the cards so he didn't get owned but he did get his bell rung. Pavlick isn't experienced to go against the likes of a B-Hop or a Winky Wright. Taylor is still inexperienced, if anyone saw the first round then you would know what i was talking about. Plus he stands in the danger zone which is when you're half way on the inside and halfway on the outside of the fighter and he doesn't move his head and doesn't keep his hands up so this KO didn't surprise me. He knows what kind of adjustments that needs to be made for the rematch. But it's good that he tastes this L by KO, now we can see the real champion in him when he comes back from this...

    Anyone watched the Samuel Peter vs. Mccline fight? Good fight for both guys, but I really believed despite the three knock downs to Peter. That Peter would win anyway. Hey why wasn't the Golota fight on?

    Cotto won rounds 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 11

    7-5.

    Mosley showed he's one of the best body punches in the division today; he got to Miguel's core and did damage.

    Miguel is the best all around welterweight; he won the match with his jab. No one would of thought of Cotto would utiilized his jab, being known as a slugger. Cotto is fast, and also has great defense; even being an agressive boxer who always looks to get inside. Cotto has cat-like reflexes and always comes back with combinations.

    Mosley got his ass kicked in rounds 3-6. He couldn't even throw combinations anymore with the shots he was taking.

    Cotto was the more accurate boxer who won more rounds.

    Mosley got the most power punches.

    Cotto is great at adapted to the environment and changing his style. He doesn't need to use his strengths to win the fight.

    The road to greatness continues for Cotto.

    Plus, Cotto has the best kicks in boxing.

    Anyone watch the Mosley-Cotto fight? Great fight. Very close fight and hard to score but not as hard as the Winky-Hopkins fight. At the end, Cotto won the fight but I think if Mosley didn't give so much respect toward Cotto's punching then the fight would have been much more of a landslide. Everytime Mosley let off with a good punch he would back up Cotto....which means you have to ask yourself...how many times has cotto been pushed back? This is a sign of being hurt. He definitely had him hurt in the 9th even though Cotto is to proud to admit it. Cotto was running around like the smaller fighter in the 9th. I thought Mosley took rounds 9,10, and 12 but I don't know...they were very hard to score. I have no clue why they gave Cotto the last round. My decision goes to Cotto even though he couldn't press his style on the quicker Mosley who is still a great in my book.

    Next big fight, Mayweather vs. Hatton. The superfight! I'm definitely watching this one. Mayweather might be too slick for hatton with his James Toney patented Philly Shell defense but Hatton is a big puncher with heart...a mean body puncher at that. I'm saying a close UD by Mayweather with Hatton going at Pretty Boy early.

    After this fight will be the RJ-Trinidad fight. This will not be a fight. Roy is the quicker, faster, stronger, wiser, and P4P better fighter than Trinidad. Anyone who says that Roy doesn't have a chin, doesn't know boxing. Anyone knows that if you lose 25 pounds over a short period of time...your legs are going to be gone when you enter the ring. So when you get hit by the big punch or that punch you aren't expecting...what's going to happen? If anyone doesn't know the anatomy of a punch...when you get hit by a good punch, it goes straight to your legs which is why you see people with bad footwork or tired boxer's legs almost evaporate when they get hit by a haymaker. Look at the Vargas-Trinidad fight or when RJ knockdown James Toney. RJ has eaten punches from middleweight to heavyweight and wasn't hurt once......Trinidad will not I repeat...will not hurt RJ. He's not nearly as strong. His punches will annoy RJ which will eventually put Tito to rest AGAIN and he'll go back to Puerto Rico in shame. Besides I have no respect for Tito...dude tried to cheat against B-Hop by unproperly wrapping his hands...true champions never cheat...never do true champions cheat...RJ TKO 9

    What is going to happen to the smaller, less-abled Trinidad against Roy....



    2:08: Hanshaw hits RJ with a good right hand which makes roy angry

    2:03 Roy hits him with a good left hook and gets off the ropes

    1:01 After a series of superb body shots, RJ let's off a hard triple uppercut in 1 second on his way to drop hanshaw to the canvas....

    LOL Trinidad peed his pants when he saw that.

    Tito needs to do a few things to win.

    1. CUT OFF the RING. This will mean that RJJ cannot run all night like a welterweight DLH.

    2. KEEP it on the ROPES!! RJJ is the most horrible off the ropes fighter I have ever seen, in following this sport for 4 decades. He reminds me of a fighting rooster trapped against a chain link fence by a Rotweiller.

    3. Go to the Body. RJJ cowers on the ropes, covering up like a prostitute that Ike Ibeabuchhi is trying to rip the clothes off of in a Hotel Room. He covers his head, but leaves his both sides exposed.

    4. Keep it a war, lots of toe to toe exchanges, and work on firing that ugly left hook with some speed. The shot that ruined the career of Vargas in the First Round will end RJJ's career as well.

    5. Watch the 1st and 2nd Tarver fight, and the Johnson fight. These are blueprints of how to destroy Roy.

    RJ has NO jab ... keeps his hands low all night man Tito is going to destroy him

    Couldn't have said it better...the most crucial aspect of RJ's fight style is his footspeed. If the footspeed is there then RJ is going to create havoc because he'll no longer stay on the ropes. And yes he needs to stay off the ropes even though he was more effective in his last fight in which he knocked Hanshaw from the ropes. It'll be a good fight but I don't see Trinidad causing RJ any problems. Seems like he's recovered from his "weight mistake" and is now at decent form. Trinidad is not knocking out Roy in 2 like he says. And RJ could knock out Trinidad in 4 but I don't see it. But if this goes the distance RJ by UD but if a KO did occur I'm saying it happens around R 7-9.
