Default Vic part of showtime tournament

Showtime are putting together a tournament at bantam. They wanted a super six style format but toprank passed with donaire and montiel.

So far its:

Vic v mares

Agbeko v perez rematch

Winners fight each other.

Other fighters are being spoken to apparently. Donaire wanted to be part of it.


Good news but early stages by all reports

Nice little tourny by the sounds of it but if Vic doesn't win it then i see retirement beckoning .

I like it too mate. Having the toprank fighters especially donaire would have been great. Even hasegawa.

Hopefully they get more entrants.

I think vic will struggle. He is old and looks a bit down on his best. Bantam seems to negate his speed and power imo.

True Jet it's a bit like Showtimes Super six without the inclusion of HBO fighter Lucian Bute , Good tourny though and something to look forward to none the less .

Sounds awesome, too bad it seems Montiel & Donaire wont be apart of it.
Seems there fight might be aligned with a Cotto or Chavez Jr. card or Cotto vs Chavez Jr.

If its a straight 4 man elimination would still be nice, tho Vic has an uphill battle with Mares.

Vic has balls like watermelons! You would think he would start to slow down now his getting older but he jumps at every oportunity he gets!

I think this format is great for boxing , will be exiting . I think evrything below 140 needs shaking up right now.

i love vic, heart is amazing, and id back him all the way, even if he has started to show signs of exiting his prime.. if this doesnt happen just one more match with donaire is all we need and his legacy is sealed!
