Exactly. Miranda is an exciting fighter with a lot of power and he's young enough to improve. He got schooled by Pavlik, but I am not one to give up on a fighter after a loss. Brooklyn's right in saying the SMW is a deep division, so Miranda will not have an easy time, but I'm glad to see him back.

Agreed. Manfredo was getting tagged cleanly by Banks, who is not a world class fighter. Miranda would throw some serious bombs and I don't think Pete has the power to keep him off. That's not a slam on Manfredo, who is a fighter that I like and usually pull for.

Hmmmm . . . I want to see how he fares on his comeback fight.

Interesting.

He is apparently going to fight Porras. What a dissapointment. I knew he would take an "easy" comeback fight, but he could at least have chosen an opponent who still had a pulse. Let me be the first to predict a KO-win to Miranda, after which he probably calls out a champion.

Gibbs had a loss on his record. Also, he didn't look particularly convincing against Green, who looked like shit that fight. Eastman had already lost 2 in a row before he fought Miranda, granted it was the first time he'd been KOed.

at least it is'nt on ppv, unlike oscar 'tune-up' against faded campas. I hope miranda improves though. even though he got the shit beat out of him i'm still a fan of the guy, and hopes he at least wins a paper title at smw. people hold the trash talking against him, but how can you hate a right handed power puncher who always comes to fight, puts on an exciting show, never says die and goes out on his shield. he's also willing to fight almost anybody without complaining about money. what MW fights eastman, abraham, green, gibbs and pavlik one after the other regardless of outcome?

I don't hate Miranda the least. I actually think he is a pretty exciting and good (not elite) boxer, and because I think he is a good boxer, I would like to see him fight someone who is not completely shot. Believe me a fight against Porras won't answer any questions about how Miranda will cope at SMW.

i agree, even as a miranda fan i knew he was going after an easy guy for his comeback. but i'm sure this is just a confidence builder to get him feeling 'invincible' again. after he knocks porra out, he should get offered a fight against, at least, a SMW like brahmer. porra should be a sacrificial lamb, but i'm hoping miranda at least shows what he's been working on against him.

Miranda's blatant fouling should have earned him a DQ in that fight.

The boy had a rough childhood and got some sympathy from me on that account but he doesn't belong in top level boxing, at any weight. He doesn't have the skill set, neither offensive nor defensive.

With training, that could change, but I always believed he was overhyped, just as Pavlik is now.

With that post, it's time to put away your booze and go sleep it off.

Exactly - you took the words out of my mouth. I would rather watch him than a handful of "A" level fighters simply because you know there will be tons of action until the end.

c: knocked out willie gibbs in one round.

d: miranda beat allan green (would have knocked him out if it went the full 12) who is a contender at super middle and very good.

what do 'b' 'c' and ''d' have in common, they were all undefeated.
what you talking about?!?
