ill tell you one thing, when i was watchign taylor back when he was an early prospect, he had one of the most devasstating jabs i had ever seen. Its a really stiff, quick jab. he actually knocked a guy down before with it.
I like this taylor becoming that badass i think he really is, he's all nice and calm on the outside and is a fresh looking face in boxing, but that mans got that killer instinct. I like it. The man will eventually fight alot of huge names and i think he could go out with a very big resume and legacy. I actually see him challenging all the way to heavyweight. I have no doubt he will someday be a lightheavyweight.
yea, th epavlik miranda fight should be fight of the year. the taylor fight sucks, he lost some of my respect. Although im glad taylor won, i really dotn know if he did enough to win because this fight was more like delahoya mayweather, but in this case, taylor got the victory. first fight ive been to death in in awhile.
i had spinks ahead overral through most the rounds, because of my biased i gave taylor the close rounds, but my god. Im just going to say taylor got a gift from god because i will never watch that fight again and will never score it. reminded me of a lesser version of delahoya/mayweather, in fact, delahoya/mayweather was a damn good fight compared to that.
think about all the people that made a killing bettign on that it would go the distance. after that SPEECH taylor gave at the PC, i would of bet my life that he would of knocked anyone out in his next fight. man, he sure fooled us. I still think he's due for a coming out party but if he fights like that ever again, i expect him not to get the biased. I dont think cory did enough to take the title. But this taking the title **** is getting out of hand. I dont care who the champion is or the contender. The best man should win no matter what. I feel mayweather won the delahoya fight, i dont care if he did enough to win the title. I cant tell you who won the fight last night, part of me thinks spinks did enough to win but didnt deserve the middleweight champion. I dotn know why i feel this way, im having mixed feelings. I never thought boxing would get to me this much haha. Its a good thing im in love with this sport and there are other fights out there that can get those boring boring fights out of your head. Im putting gatti ward in the dvd player as we speak.
you cant rate one fight on the p4p thing, its an overal evaluation, not fight to fight, if it were, there woudl be so many different p4p champions. Hell, when bhop and rj lost, they were still in the top 5 p4p. Taylor is still in the top 8 p4p, he just had a bad night. he beats calzaghe and pavlik. I dont think pavlik could beat cory spinks to be honest, calzaghe would though.
then i would call you one thing, a taylor hater. Because i thought taylor won all three. and i dont hate hopkins or winky, just think they are boring. But taylor was boring last night, il give you that.
alright knuckle, keep hating. But boxing needs less haters and more appreciators. It doesnt bother me that you think hop and stinky beat him but the fact is, taylor got the w, no matter how you look at it. But the fact that you cant even give him any respect, just bothers me as a boxer and a fan.
shoulda woulda coulda. hagler should of ko'ed leonard, ( camacho did ) ruiz should of ko'ed roy jones ( tarver did ) lewis should of knocked out holyfield ( bowe did ) barrera should of knocked morales out ( pac did ) morales should of knocked out barrera ( pac did ) barrera could of beat pac ( morales did ) blah blah blah.. boxing isnt a should of would of could of kind of sport. we should all know that you dont get what you expect. Oscar should of ko'ed floyd with his overwelming about of power but no floyd was to fast, same instance in spinks case. You cant hit what you cant catch. Taylor should of killed winky? i dont think anyone will ever dominate winky. Everyone here consideres him in the top five p4p even though his only exciting performacne was against taylor? I wonder why, taylor made him fight.
you could definenetly see a differnet in athletic ability between floyd and spinks thats for sure. Floyd boxed beautifully while occasionally throwning a hard shot. Cory, well he pawed with his jab and never really threw a telling blow. I honestly just want to forget about jt/spinks though. IM putting it in the back of my head and will only remember that fight again if taylor ever fights that boring again , and i dare asy that would be almost impossible to top that one.
