I watched about half around and was so disgusted with how crappy Firtha was (I think I could beat thim back in the day ) I had to find something else to do. Some dope on Eastside wrote that Wilder "put on a punching display." For his thirtieth fight? Very telling what they think of him. And must know about him.
I watched the international feed and Dave Bontempo all but implied Wilder will get a rude awakening when he fights a legit top 10 fighter. Shoot this guy who is really a cannon fodder ESPN opponent bum rushed him and mildly stunned him in the first. Bontempo stated that he commits too much on his shots and leaves himself wide open for counters. Plus usually fighters with his frame can't take a punch. If you look at his upper body it's strong and developed but his legs are built like a giraffe. See Tommy Hearns when he got nailed by big punchers.
Deonday"Blackstar" Wilder claims he will fight a Klitschko in 2014. Once he fights someone that can punch he's a done deal. Blackstar won't know what hit him. He has a terrible chin as can be seen by how bum Harold Sconiers put him on his ass. That's why he hand picks these guys he fights, he knows he can't beat a puncher.
Watched the Wilder-Firtha fight and these are my observations: wilder is 29-0 with 29 KOs, so why is he fighting a guy who is 21-10? The announcers stated Wilder couldn't get a better opponent because of money issues. This stinks to high hell! He's obviously avoiding better fighters. Wilder is all offense...he got tagged multiple times by Firtha, who quite honestly looked like a very slightly above average pro. Any upper echelon fighter will be able to hurt Wilder. He's been floored in the amateurs and it will happen in the pros. Wilder stands flat footed and throws bombs...this won't work against upper echelon fighters. I won't say he's a horrible fighter because he isn't. That said, I think his handlers know he will taste the canvas eventually and probably want to make as much money on him as possible. If they thought he was capable of winning a title they would have got him an opportunity long ago.
Both Vlad and Vitali has really good boxing skills, that's why the are the best heavyweight in the world today................Vitali or Vlad should fight Wilder ASAP, then they would have beaten the world's greatest heavyweight of all time, thus according to the American boxing media..............
A former HBO black hope and Max Kellerman favorite who became a Showtime black hope and an Al Bernstein favorite - Adrian Broner - was beaten tonight.
Broner, who once beat up an old lady to steal her purse, was exposed as an overrated boxer and lost his paper title to Marcos Maidana.
The WBA regular belt(when there is a "Super Champion) is probably worth as much as a prize out of a Cracker Jack box. But even by these standards this belt is further devalued, supposedly Wilder is trying to bribe the WBA into squaring off against 40+ Fres Oquendo.....:tape: I can see the duffel bags full of hundos being packed as we speak......http://www.fightnews.com/Boxing/fres-oquendo-szpilka-can-stop-jennings-234843#more-234843Good update brother. I thought that Malignaggi really exposed Broner in that last fight. Sure he won but as hyped as he was Paulie should not have been able to do that well against him. Meanwhile I just checked boxrec and found Malignaggi recently beat Zab Judah. How did I miss that one?
Floyd Gayfeather fights tonight. He and his little me Broner are on the card with Amir Khan. Since I don't care for the first two and Khan has a chin that wobbles with a gust of wind maybe we will have a trifecta in tribute to Derby Day and all three will lose....Oops - I just saw WisR's link. That punch didn't even land. There is no backwards movement on Scott's head as there would have been if the punch landed. Yep, he took a dive all right.
Khan looked sensational tonight. He protected his chin and dropped and beat up tough Callazo.Floyd Gayfeather fights tonight. He and his little me Broner are on the card with Amir Khan. Since I don't care for the first two and Khan has a chin that wobbles with a gust of wind maybe we will have a trifecta in tribute to Derby Day and all three will lose....
My impression of the fight that Gayfeather eked out the decision or it was a draw. I felt El Chino tired in the second half of the fight and Floyd took command less the last round. But I also knew that at least one blind mouse would be judging this fight if not three blind mice. The boxing business needs Gayfeather to march on and create more PPV's. Sheesh the pirate feed I saw had the US satellite price and it was 88 US dollars? WTF........:icon_mrgreen::frusty:Vegas hosed Miadana. I had him winning by 2 points. One judge was not blind he called it even. The other 2 had Floyd up 4 and 6 rds. BS!!! Chino refined his jab and kept Floyd off balance most of the fight. He also busted up Floyd. Chino did not have a scratch. Chino, although he nailed Floyd throughout the fight, he could not nail him with a shot that would put Floyd down.
Chino when interviewed said that he would give Floyd a rematch and also insisted on his approved gloves, unlike tonight, they gave into Floyd's demands of wearing bitch ass Grant gloves. Next time I hope he wears Reyes or Everlast gloves. Oh well, most who saw the fight knows that Chino won.
