Default 2008

The discussion about the Fighter of the year and the fight of the year has started. But maybe a much more important discussion is who will make his rise to the top in 2008 or who will be the great champion in 2008. any predictions??

Boxing's already regaining dominance. Th UFC has had a lot of their potential megafights fall through because it is so easy for anyone to lose in that sport. I was even begining to lean atleast halfway towards the MMA world, but boxing has a certain charm that the UFC doesn't. Boxing matches almost always answer the question of 'which fighter is better' while MMA gives fighters with lesser talents way more opportunities to get lucky(that might also be why people like it).

I just hope 2008 is half as good as 2007 . Theres some fantastic fights to come if the promoters do there job winner of rh & fm vs winner cotto mosley talor pavlick 2 hell pavlick full stop winner of jc vs kessler vs b hop . Hopfully we will see the new gard of fighters do there share like de leon / dawson / guzman / god dam it the welter weights alone could keep us busy . I am a big fan of the ufc watched it from the start but they can not compete with what boxing has to offer if the promoters do there job
