Canelo vs Plant is going to look like Romero vs Rockhold. Plant will look good early and then be overwhelmed.

Looking forward to Usman vs Colby. I think Usman stops him earlier this time.

And Strickland should be adding another highlight KO to the popular Rockhold getting KTFO reel.

Hoping Usman physically breaks Colby again. Usman is the better fighter and the better Champion.

How can you be a fight fan, and dislike boxing?

I thought Chandler wasn’t fighting in NYC because of the vaccine mandate?

He said if it got FDA approved he would get it.

Right?

Not sure. He is listed on the card.

I think boxing is corrupt. And as a sport itself it’s boring. They dance, throw a punch, then clinch, then the ref breaks them up. They dance, throw another punch or two, they panic and clinch, ref breaks them up again. It’s just too much of that

As for corruption there’s no way in God’s green earth Manny Pacquio lost to Jeff Horn. Ask anyone who saw that fight. Also something that has always bothered me about boxing is too many titles. Too many weight divisions. There’s no “UFC” of boxing. And I’ve always hated how boxing is an even number of rounds. Who thinks that’s a good idea? You’re just asking for draws which no one, including the fans, wins

Boxing is definitely corrupt. And the organization of the sport is a mess, because everyone is competing separately for $$$.

And I also agree that MMA is more consistent than boxing, at providing good competitive fights.

However, when boxing is good, it is really good. Very, highly skilled, and exciting. Been a fan since I was a young kid.

There are a number of great match ups in next 8 weeks:

(1) Joshua-Usyk. 65k fans in stadium. London. HW Joshua vs Undisputed (undefeated) CW Champion, and Olympic gold medalist Usyk.

(2) Lopez vs Kombosas for undisputed LW title.

(3) Fury vs Wilder IIII - Everything is on line.

(4) Shakur Stevenson vs Herring - Herring is Champion, and Shakur might be the new Mayweather.

(5) Canelo vs Plant - Las Vegas. Fox PPV

(6) Crawford vs Porter - very big fight for hardcore fans. WW title on ESPN PPV
