Watched most of Saensak-Perico Fernandez II; very interesting defensive technique from Saensak there (no kidding) although I'm probably kore surprised that he bothered to duck at all.

Kim was not bad at all. I have him Vs...hmm....cannot remember the chaps name (criminal, sorry) but it's his title defence. Obviously I have a bit of Mamby blasting him. But he wasn't always the horrifically bad fighter that Pryor steamrolled.

Vic, check out my twitter, bumped into Sam-A today
I see, I was reading boranīs thread right now !! Great picture!

Just watched Arthur Abraham vs Mehdi Bouadla on EurosportHD. King Arthur impressed me with them solid , rapid combinations. He was like a caveman. Id like to see him fight Groves.

Boomsong never ceases to amaze me

Imagine The Thai Slickster embarrasing Antonio "C-3PO" Cervantes for 15 rounds.

Sumbu Kalambay vs Mike McCallum I

This guy would have been a superstar today at 160lbs. He was so good. Mike is a great fighter himself, and coming off his devastating knockout victory over Donald Curry, but here he was conclusively outboxed over 12. Out-jabbed, couldn't get out of the way of Kalambay's right hand, and his signature body work was nowhere to be seen. Considering what McCallum went on to achieve as a Middleweight, and the performances he'd put on against the likes of Watson and Toney, you'd have to say this result was more down to Kalambay's brilliance then McCallum not being effective at 160lbs. A beautiful display. The cards were close, but I thought Sumbu won it by at least 4-5 rounds.

Probably the best pure boxing performance we have on film.

Watch their 2nd fight; a post-Nunn Sumbu, and Mike starts quicker, but an uber close and exciting technical affair an one of my favourite fights.

Glad you're digging Sumbu, one of my favourites. Who the **** needs Floyd Mayweather?

Sumbu is ****in' awesome. It's incredible to me that he didn't get more recognition at the time. Can you imagine if he was around today? Nobody could **** with him.

Might be a bit undersized at middle...but nah, he'd run rings round Sergio and Canelo fo'sure

As for recognition I think he had a chance for that when he fought Nunn. Post-Leonard-Hagler that was the fight to finally crown a 'true' number 1 I guess.

And we know what happened there (bloody southpaws)

Is that the biggest fluke in boxing history? If they fought 100 more times I don't think Kalambay would've even been floored let alone stopped.

One of surely. Whereas McLarnin was probably a horrific matchup for YCIII.

Watched pacquiao v Marquez 2 again just now.

This for me is the best fight of the quadrilogy. So much back and forth, so many adjustments, such a great fight.

The first I found easy to score it was like a man showing the ****y young kid who was boss. Yeah Pac scored the 3 kd's but he got schooled for the remainder. The 3rd was close but clear. A lot of close rounds but at the end it felt like jmm was surely gonna get the nod, Pac had slowed a step which made jmm and his timing advantage more prevalent.

This 2nd though was them two at their peak I believe. I've watched it about 7 times now and at first I was scoring it 7-5 jmm but more recently I get a 6-6 card. It is very hard to separate them that night and the kd really was the difference when I watched it just now.

It kinda seems more fair as well with two greats like this meeting in their peaks that it is the closest of margins keeping them apart.

With hindsight I think Pac could have achieved more with his career. He was never gonna beat Floyd and whilst he made his money at ww who's around to beat him from sfw - lww? Marquez is the only one I'd consider but across 3 divisions Pac has plenty of opportunity to really clean up. Campbell at lw and a rematch with jmm. Bradley at lww, Judah, Khan, Peterson all these guys are a level below Pac.

Don't get me wrong, dominating cotto and clottey was great as he was out of his depth in that division, but would it have been as great as unfifying from sfw to lww? I dont know.

I feel the trips to ww took it out of him ultimately and caused a premature end to his peak.

He obviously has had a great career and his run as p4p#1 was deserved but I think it came at a price. Guess it tells because he started taking easy fights, Margo, Mosley and Jmm were all seen as cherry picks.

Bradley and Jmm was him trying to prove he still had it. I think he proved he doesn't. In his prime he was a sight to behold, dancing around, rapid combinations, take a shot to land a shot, standing his ground and cutting through his opponent. No wonder he was so loved. It's a shame when eras come to the end like this and that's why I wanted to remind myself what he was like at the top.
