I agree that MAB takes some solid shots...

It is an awkward fight that was never going to be pretty...

But that ref was wank, he just let the fighters crack on with the shoddy stuff and did not get involved. I also agree that he gave MAB far more time than he should have and really shoud have stopped it at the first opportunity.

MAB is my favourite fighter of all time but that night Jnr Jones had his number...

'Boxing's Greatest Counter-Punchers' & 'Al Grito De Guerra: Mexico's Greatest Warriors'.
Who would you have in them.

'All action 70s-80s'

Bobby Chacon vs Bazooka Limon IV
Bobby Chacon vs Cornelius Boza Edwards I
Bobby Chacon vs Cornelius Boza Edwards II

Ray Mancini vs Duek Koo Kim
Ray Mancini vs Alexis Arguello
Ray Mancini vs Livingstone Bramble I

Danny Lopez vs Mike Ayala
Danny Lopez vs Ruben Olivares
Danny Lopez vs Salvador Sanchez

Back in those days if a boxer was diagnosed with a detached retina then he retired. Simple as that, the ones that didn't retire fought because they had to for financial reasons. It wasn't seen by the press/ public as an injury that a boxer could fight on with.

Leonards "second" career was very manipulative but his "first" is one of the best short careers in boxing history. To say he retired at 26 to avoid anything is ridiculous. At the time of retirement Leonard was in his prime and making 147 easily, who was going to KO him? Curry? MCCrory? Jones? If he was scared of Hagler (after fighting Hearns and Duran?) then all he had to do was stay at welterweight/ jr middle

Mayweather also didn't fight Hearns, Benitez and Duran smack bang in the middle of their primes. Hell, Floyd has just fought a load of Andy Prices.

Greg, who gives a flying **** what you think. You've seen four fights of Barrera, three of them taking place after his supposed prime. "He was a good fighter". No, he was a great fighter, twice the fighter you're ever likely to develop into to so show some ****in' respect you elitist wannabe, nappy-wearing, toddler cunt! ...Sorted. Marco was making a name for himself in the professional ranks when he was 15 years of age, what are you going to be doing? ...Do your research, watch some fights in colour, and then you have a right to make statements about Marco...until then, stick to your premature ejaculations over Arguello and Chang.

Oi, those are my boys topo; leave 'em alone. Even as much as I loev Kahokor, the 2nd Moon fight is hard to watch. Moon shows big guts.

What did you think of the 2nd fight mate? You see why I rave about it now?

But does he? He seems to lack technical ability and merely relies on his freakish power and brute strength.

Khaokor?!?!? Nah, he doesn't rely on his power. Good set of attributes, angles, combinations tyo head and body, and toughness. His win over Wilfredo Vasquez is also very dominant, despite an odd SD (in Galaxys hometown no less)

Moon is all heart and chin. I find them very good attributes. He can just wing in shots and hurt people, fair play to him IMO

Well he knocked out most of his opponents and I saw little to nothing from him in terms of punching technique and strategy in the first fight.

Who we talking bout, Moon? If so, watch the first Konadu fight.

Khaokor? If so, watch Moon II and Vasquez.

You will enjoy all three fights I have mentioned. Nana Konadu is a fighter I think you will really appreciate.

Moon is crude, but I didn't see much more from Galaxy either is what I'm saying. Perhaps he found Moon to be an awkward customer first time around, and made the necessary adjustments for the return bout...if that's the case, that's too his credit. What are Galaxy's strengths as far as you're concerned, Flea?
