Marquez... thanks
[ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY] 8:35 pm: I dont figure RJ to be a favorite at this time, no... but in his prime i say he
beats ANYONE at that weight
[bojado71] 8:35 pm: John, Do you feel Wlad Klitchko really has a weak chin or was it more due to nerves and his
somewhat stiff style?

flush shot on Klits I am assuming he will be in some trouble....
[ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY] 8:36 pm: it might be a combination of those things u mentioned
[PLOWBOY] 8:36 pm: U beat a guy by the name of Billy Bridges, gave him his first and only loss via split dec. do u

[ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY] 8:42 pm: well.....
[ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY] 8:42 pm: there are some very good amateur trainers etc...
[ICEMAN JOHN SCULLY] 8:43 pm: but i have noticed that many coaches in the amateurs dont have a great
grasp on the fact that the pro game is so different
[bojado71] 8:43 pm: John, last question, do you ever see boxing returning to network TV again?
[Dave Murphy] 8:43 pm: Body Punching for one thing?

This is exactly why we need a chat option here. We had Steve Forbes in the chat a few months ago. A lot of guys like to do this, but not many boxing sites have the option.

He is one of the nicest guy's I've ever talked to. Me and John have had a few conversatiosn about Roy Jones and Mike Tyson in my time. He even sent me an autograph photo of himself from his home address.

This is a big reason why we need chat here. Steve Forbes said he would chat here if we had the option available. John said the same thing. A lot of boxers/trainers of the past and present love doing that sort of thing.

Absolutely. I just wish there was a way I could do what I saw fit to improve this place. I would take member suggestions like crazy and try to accomodate everyone. A shoutbox would be huge! A chat room would be huge! MORE SMILIES would be huge! All of those things are relatively easy to do. I know this. But nooooooooooooooooooo

It is all about management though. We could have it get really big as long as everyone is made to adhere to the rules that distinguish us from other places. This place will never be like the others as long as I'm here!

hahaha, another blast from the archives. sugar turned on em though. can you all get a chat room up in here. is it possible? how does that work??
For a boxing forum we sure got alot of Fantasy based necromancers up in here.

whats a necromancer? and is a chat room a bad idea? not sure. you tell me
Someone who raises things from the dead.

And a chatroom, or ventrilo even, wouldn't be a bad idea.
