I cant believe this is PPV. I will probably get it becuase there are no other fights on. I order almost all PPV's but even the undercard is weak.
The santa Cruz vs Diaz fight is probably the best fight on the card.


I think Rahman will be motivated for this fight & KO Maskaev within 4 or 5 rounds.

The Rock needs to stay with his jab and box . If he trades blows and thinks he can slug it out after the fith or sixth round then he will be in trouble
If he shows more heart and sheer determination than his last few fights than he should win. If anything, revenge, should motivate this win to avenge getting blasted through the ropes on HBO.This will probably go the distance.I hope , I am wrong because he could use a major league knockout.......

Maskaev has a weak chin & below average stamina so I cant see this fight goin the distance. Only way is if Rahman is affraid of running into something & fights really conservative.

Although in the current heavyweight division anyone can beat anyone on any night.

I think outa the 4 heavyweights champs Rahman may be the worst.

I have not had a chance to see this bout because our bouts ended to late for us .I am not surprised that it went the distance,Oh well the Rock got his chance,Who would give him another shot? may be thats it for him, I hate to say so but at age 33 he'll hang around and get a shot in a couple of years.

The fights where pretty good lasy night. 2 come from behind dramatic Ko's. And Soto vs Valle was as slugfest.

Rahman is just about done. Maskaev should not have been there in the 12th to comeback & KO him. A good heavyweight should stop Maskaev within 8 rounds or so.

I would like to see Brock fight Maskaev but sounds like its gonna be the winner of Peter vs Toney.

European-born Maskaev scores second KO over Hasim Rahman for WBC heavyweight title

For about a year now, promoter Dennis Rappaport would tell anyone who would listen that his heavyweight fighter, Oleg Maskaev, was the modern day "Cinderella" story - a humble fighter who overcame a rough background and bigger odds to reach the pinnacle of sports, the world heavyweight championship.

rankings and divisions

So now we have another heavyweight champion, Oleg Maskaev. That is, he has the WBC title, right? Wladimir Klitschko has the IBF, IBO, and NABF crowns, correct? Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Boxing Record Archives(boxrec) ranks Calvin Brock as the number one heavyweight. But his
boxrec record also lists him as the winner of a vacant WBC title fight. Also, he holds the IBA championship.

As a fifty-eight year old, I can recall those simpler times when there was only one champion in each weight class. That is why I can still feel the excitement I felt the night in 1964 when my father listened on the radio to the first fight between the single heavyweight champion in the world, Sonny Liston, and the challenger, then called Cassius Clay, later Muhammed Ali. There was that feeling of surprise, almost disbelief, when Clay triumphed. It was like David slaying Goliath. Never have I been one to always be preaching about the good old days. But boxing titles then had more meaning for me. There was one man on the entire planet who could not be beaten in boxing.

Later in the sixties, the different organizations began, NABF being the first, that had their own championship belts. Was television to blame for this turn of events, greedy promoters?

So now, Maskaev and Klitschko should be fighting within the next year to unify the title. But somehow the excitement is lacking.

Sorry to tell you this but NABF and IBO belts are not considered "major" anymore. The four major titles are:

WBC: Oleg Maskaev
WBA: Nicolay Valuev
IBF: Wladimir Klitschko
WBO: Sergei Liakhovich

There hasn't been a unified title since one of the men in my avatar retired.
