Miguel Cotto Retires?

I think his fight on Saturday night proved that it’s time for Miguel Cotto to step away. You had a hell of a career, Champ, but I think you are right in saying that was your last fight.

Thanks for the years, the fights and the memories!

Johnathan’s Canelo v GGG Takes

Now that Canelo/Triple GGG is in the books, I feel like I don’t even have to write a blog on it, just refer to my pre-fight prediction and you pretty much have the fight in a nutshell.

First off, in regards to the fight I want to say, that I’m totally fine with the decision, and furthermore, all the judges scoring. Here’s what I scored the fight: 116-112. 8 rounds to 4, in favor of GGG. I could say i feel wholeheartedly that Canelo won the 2nd round and that’s it, everything else could have gone either way even the 12th. Canelo had a cute flurry in the beginning of the 11th and 12th but that was nullified both times by a (according to RJJ) “NINE” punch combo by GGG later in the 11th, and again in the 12th later in the round.

Chocolatito Tonight!!

Even if the first fight was a robbery in the majority’s eyes, it was a helluva matchup and I can’t wait to see the sequel tonight! Chocolatito will get his belt back tonight on HBO!!

…Sorry, I should be more objective. It should be a great match up tonight. May the best man win!

There are so many boxers that i really admire, but let’s try this anyways.

Here we go! Continue reading

The Tale Of The Tape – Mayweather vs. McGregor

This will be my first blog, so please bear with me. I’m just a boxing fan; I have been since about 93 when De La Hoya TKO’d Mayweather (obviously not that Mayweather) when I was about 8 years old. I love boxing, I cant say it was bonding time for my dad and I because we enjoyed a lot of things together, boxing was definitely one of them, a big one of them. My first blog maybe my last because I’m about to offend a lot of people but I don’t care. I want to; I want to offend the degenerate boxing fans the trolls of the sport before I even get started because tbh that’s part of the reason why I’m doing this blog in the first place! I call this the tale of the tape… Continue reading
