RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - RoC of 606 - 11-28-2012 07:37 AM

On a side note I hope Flintoff gets battered on Friday. Boxers put years of hard work in to become what they are and this clown does a few months of training and gets a professional fight to feed his massive ego. He should make do with being an above average cricketer.

If he's good enough roc then why cant he make a go of it? I say fair play for having a go.

He has been thrown straight in at the deep end but lets see if he swims. Either way it'll be good to see how he does.

On the fence about Flintoff tbh.

I've watched from lords to the ring (not porn) & freddie is really giving it a good go, looks to be getting in shape & looks to have a real dig so kudos to him for giving it a decent go.

On the other hand it does have a feel of him playing at it with him getting a top of the bill one off fight so i can see why the purists are calling it a joke.

Just hope nobody gets hurt.

I'm most looking forward to the 4th installment of the Marquez vs Pacquiao rivalry.

Marquez by decision at 9/2 is ridiculously tempting.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - whotobeA - 11-28-2012 01:58 PM

Really hope Marquez can do it this time Dina. He's been unfortunate not to get a nod in any of their fights. Trouble is Manny coming off that dubious loss will be victimising in this fight & i really do think he's juiced up so Marquez will be in for a torrid night. Also look forward to the Magee v Kessler fight which will be a battle while it lasts.

Andre Ward has signed up to fight Pavlik which should be a belter as well.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - Cheese - 11-28-2012 02:01 PM

pacman will do him again, then retire i reckon. hes a congressman in the fils now and he has less and less time for fighting.

agree about magee kessler, kessler takes that for me.

ward should whup pavlik. him and malignaggi fall into the same basket for me, i just cant see what the hype is.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - Dinamita - 11-28-2012 02:07 PM

Marquez is juiced up as well, he looks like a fucking beast.

I had him winning all three fights, you could argue the first and at a push, the second for Manny, but the third was very one-sided.

Felt sorry for Manny really, he looked clueless in there.

Ward and Pavlik is a mismatch. Pavlik's jab is his best weapon along with his right hand, but Ward is really good at controlling the range and will sit on his chest, handcuffing him almost on the inside.

I'd expect a very wide decision or potentially a late stoppage in Ward's favour.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - whotobeA - 11-28-2012 02:55 PM

Agree on paper that ward should be way too much for Pavlik but this is last chance saloon now for Pavlik imo after his issues etc & may really come out swinging, if ever the term 'punchers chance' applied i would say this fight would be it. Pavlik has dined out for long enough on his Miranda & Taylor wins & his crazyiness may just put Ward off his slick game.

Not seen JMM, bet he looks comedy juiced up, he has much more skill than Manny so if he's going in just to brawl he may come unstuck, though i reckon he's too savvy for that. If Marquez does win i think it would be difficult for Manny to retire on 2 losses.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - Cheese - 11-28-2012 03:23 PM

when pacman beats him , they can both retire.


RE: Fantastic - Peterson beats Amir Khan - drsrhino - 11-28-2012 07:58 PM

Not over bothered by any of those.

Pacman will beat marquez again. Pavlik lost whatever he had and kessler is a different class to magee. All three will be one sided imo.
