    Boxing

    Is anyone going to watch the Kelly Pavlik / Jermain Taylor rematch this (2-16-08) Saturday night?

    Re: Boxing

    That should be a great fight. I think Taylor might pull the upset and get revenge.

    Re: Boxing

    Since UFC came around, I have not watched a boxing match in years.

    Who??


    Ok, that is too short. How about WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

    :) (Not a boxing fan - although sometimes I will stop and watch if some butt kicking is going on)


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Yes, I will be watching. HBO has a great lineup coming up. You can watch HBO's ppv events a week later if you want to save the $50.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I like Taylors chances, he had Pavlik on the ropes in their first fight just couldnt finish him off.

    Re: Boxing

    If it were 20 years ago, Pavlik would be an international superstar. Now, he can't get any love. People don't even know who he is.

    I also like Taylor in this one - he was thumping Pavlik before he landed that big punch.

    I like UFC better than boxing, but I enjoy watching a good boxing match.

    Re: Boxing

    Anyone watch the Paul Williams/Quintano fight this weekend? Pretty big upset - a lot of people though Williams had a shot at Mayweather.

    Re: Boxing

    I am a fairly big boxing fan but I think it is a sport that is in trouble. With all of the sanctioning bodies there are like 15 world champions. It really doesn't mean anything anymore to be a WOLRD champion. Also, there aren't really that many true fighters today, but rather a lot of conservative boxers. For true fans of the sport, this may not be a problem, but for wide spread appeal it is killing the sport. People would much rather watch a couple of guys wail on each other than see a solid technical fight. This is why the UFC type stuff is so popular.
