    Re: I'm Pissed .... Pavlik/Hopkins

    Hopkins will stink his way to a Pavlik decision. If Taylor found a way to stay out of harms way of the right hand in their rematch, landing it on BHop will be even tougher. Besides, Hopkins does not throw enough punches to knock Pavlik down & let alone keep him there.

    I see Pavlik winning a similar fight to that of Calzaghe. Maybe a flash KD happens but no real danger of losing.

    Dan Jacobs got an easy and quick KO over an overmatched opponent.

    MA Rubio defeated Ornelas on a split. Fight was so-so. Not bad, but not great. Both had some nice punches, but they didn't keep up enough of a consistent work rate. When they did get going, it was fun. Ornelas was actually the sharper puncher, especially early, but he backed off. MA Rubio finished better, puffing Ornelas' eye and hurting him in the 11th.

    I do not know how anyone can stand that kind of body space abuse.

    I dont' think Tony Zale did that to Marcel Cerdan did he?

    Selling the gate is one thing, taking too much shit to be able to sleep is another.

    Zale never did it to Cerdan. Not to get off topic, but base on the film and pre fight build up leading to it.(I only missing 1 or 2 rounds of there fight) I belive both were pretty much gents leading up to it. No smack talk, no bragging ete.
    Cerdan even said if he wins, He hope to lived up to Zale as a champion. And it would be a honor to fight him.
    After there pre fight speech, they even shake hands.

    Haven't seen a face-pressing staredown like that since Pazienza-Haugen, which they're showing tonight on ESPN Classic

    Luevano WUD12 Dib. Boring fight. I never want to see Dib again. Fought like an amateur. No passion. Preferred to move and pose and b.s. more than fight.

    Re: Pavlik-Hopkins Results & Discussion 10/18/'08

    Good evening, everyone.


    Early results from AC...


    WBO featherweight champion Steven Luevano (36-1-1, 15 KOs) retained his title with a relatively uneventful unanimous decision over previously unbeaten challenger Billy Dib (21-1, 11 KOs). Scores were 116-112, 115-113, 117-111.

    In a WBC middleweight eliminator, Marco Antonio Rubio (43-4-1, 37 KOs) won a twelve round split decision over Enrique Ornelas (28-5, 18 KOs). A late rally put Rubio over the top on two cards 115-113 116-112, while Ornelas prevailed 115-113 on the third card.

    Unbeaten super middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs (11-0, 10 KOs) needed just 2:29 to annihilate Tyrone Watson (7-6, 3 KOs).

    Unbeaten junior middleweight contender Yuri Foreman (26-0, 8 KOs) boxed his way to a workmanlike ten round shutout over Vinroy Barrett (22-7, 11 KOs). Scores were 100-90.

    Danny Garcia (8-0, 7 KOs) dropped Deon Nash (5-6, 1 KO) twice in round three and got the stoppage at 2:14 of the same stanza.

    Qa'id Muhammad (3-0, 3 KOs) scored a fourth round TKO over Samuel Gutierrez (3-4). Time was 2:29.

    Re: Hopkins and Over-40 Greats

    Much as I like Pavlik and dislike Hopkins, I think that Hopkins will win this fight. He's hard to dent, and Pavlik depends on being able to dent his opponents to keep them honest.

    But I hope that I'm wrong.

    I pretty shock myself. Perhaps the jump in weight was too much for Pavlik.

    *sigh* there's just nobody left to believe in in boxing. 'Cept maybe Margarito.

    What the hell happened? Should Kelly have done a bit more charging ala Calzaghe instead of fighting so conservatively?

    Wow..... I must eat major crow on this one!

    Hats of to B-Hop, he outslicked, and outclassed Pavlik who looked slower,
    and totally befuddled in there!
    I really felt Kelly would outwork B-hop as he had faded so badly in his last fight, but Bernard controlled distance, moved away from Kelly's right hand, and countered very well.
    The added weight probably slowed him a bit but at 26 it is no excuse!
    Who would have thought Bernard would have outspeeded and outworked Pavlik?
