Do you find yourself watching boxing again?

Postby DeceptaCon » Sat May 12, 2018 1:58 am

Now that all of the UFC fighters have turned into Diva big money thirsty hoes? Goddamn I just want to see some fucking fights, just STFU and fight like Fedor.

Never stopped.

Just like with MMA I'll watch any good boxing match that I can get the chance to see.

I’m watching a lot more boxing since I stopped watching twink porn.

Having guys and girls being fucked hard by the man reminded me way too much of the UFC.

At least I’m not watching that Eastern European crap paindogs always yammering about.

I think I'm going to settle into a nice routine of ACB and RIZIN here pretty soon along with boxing. It was nice to see Edmond T. get head-movement'd again. :D

Yeah since I cut the cord I watch Boxing on the Bounce network that I pickup on my HD antenna for free. It was nice seeing some slick boxing and KO's, I especially enjoy the technique and speed difference in the punches, it takes me back to Tuesday night fights when fighters were hungry.

I tune in here and there. I still follow a lot of the top level boxers like Lomanchenko, GGG, and some top HWs. But I used to watch it as much as MMA and Kickboxing.

I just recently got television back in my life after 6 years without anything to go off of.
I find myself pvring most stuff and I gotta say I've been way more captivated by the boxing fights I've seen recently opposed to the MMA fights I've recorded.
Saturation, not bird, is the word.
I mean compare Gaethje/Porier to Broner/Vargas and it's not even close, the Broner fight was pure technical entertainment, a true show of how great fighting as a sport albeit a violent one can be.
Add in the recent performances we saw from Charlo and Gervonta Davis on tge same care as Vargas/Broner and you've got one of the most exciting and best boxing cards in a while.
Shit they even had a fantastic woman's fight on a recent card I think the GGG one, first ever on HBO I think, and it was a mismatch on paper that proved to be closer than anyone thought.
Boxing is killing it in my opinion and it's because the UFC has now out saturated boxing for me.
Boxing still has a lot of convolution and misgivings, i have immensely enjoyed boxing my whole life but can honestly say I don't think there has been a more exciting time in boxing in almost 25 years.
From FW to LHW there is a log jam of amazing fights just waiting to get made.

I'm assuming you're posting this as if Lomachenko is the /thread answer but I just don't see him that way.
I know GGG fought a gimme in his last fight but something about Lomachenko just doesn't sir right with me.
I'm basing this off pure personal feeling, he obviously is a vastly superior boxer to Kovalev but it's something about Vasyl that makes me doubt he can keep it going the same way Kovalev failed to do so.
He's like an immovable object and I just don't think we've seen him against an unstoppable force of equal talent and when we do I don't think he comes out on top.
Fully aware that's the unpopular opinion and despite my knowledge of boxing I'm not basing that off anything but a gut feeling.
Vasyl is great but I really miss the days where there was no doubt who was the best at the time.

Lots of good fights to make, 147 has potential for some solid match-ups. Hopefully Crawford vs Spence Jr. happens at some point.

I thought the fight to make was Spence Jr. vs Thurman. I want to see Jermall Charlo vs. Canelo or GGG, or both.

Spence could be the next P4P guy but he keeps fighting these bums. Hoping for the Joshua Wilder fight.

I'm not super avid with the boxing but I like it. I like how lomachenko moves. It's different but he reminds me of guys like Roy Jones & Prince Naseem especially liked his fight against rigondeux. That was impressive.
After his last fight against linares I think you're right. His time will come.
If mikey Garcia beats his next challenger. (Big if) I'd like to see them square off.
