Default Re: Guzman vs Arthur is such a mismatch

i cant say mismatch, but for me, AAA is going to get the granny beat outta him. i just cant see anyway he can live with guzmans speed, i think the comination punching will confuse him and i honestly see aurther stopped inside four.

Guys guys guys.

Im not new to the board. Read my avatar comment, other account has 1000posts.

And no im not going to argue back either. Obviously i've hit a nerve.

I'll just bump this back up after Arthur gets dominated, 12rounds to nil. Hatton had more chance against Money Mayweather - Slim to non existant.

Arthurs looked terrible in his last fights. He's a C-class fighter at best. Guzman is on a different planet.

Ill be sure to bump this up on fight night.

Thats wha I have been saying for a while but some people on this board believe he has earned the right to fight Guzman. He has looked **** in all his fights. He is just above a club fighter and nothing more. Holding the Euro belt means sweet FA. Even fat danny williams and even fatter Sam have held such titles.

Default Re: Guzman vs Arthur is such a mismatch

I have just finished watching Arthurs fight against Foster and i cant for the life of me see how Arthur can win?

I initially gave him a 60-40 chance but to be honest i think Arthur is preety much made for Guzman, hope i am wrong but i dont think i will be.

What you so-called 'newbs' are failing to realise is, and the point being made that ****es us off, is when a new member(or old member, but its normally a newb) joins and opens up threads purely to gain attention. Threads like this one, the viewpoint could easily have been put accross in the CURRENT guzman vs Arthur thread, but you felt the need for another thread slandering Alex.

Dunky was not at all trying to say any new member has any less knowledge, but this board is like real ****ing life, you have to gain respect, like it or not. When someone comes up to you in the street and approaches yourself and a big group of your friends, and simply says the team shirt you are wearing are ****, and have no chance, how the **** do you react? EXACTLY. But if its someone you know and like, you take it with a pinch of salt. One way not to get in the good books on here, is by having two posts, opening a thread entitled 'fighter X is ****', posting only a few words inside and so on.

THIS IS OUR SPOT, youre more than welcome, but you act like a ***** straight away in my street, you get no respect and beat the **** up.






____________________________________________________________









Finally, never once have we said Arthur is favouritem but it is not impossible for Alex to win, despite what some of you are saying, he is a technically sound boxer, more so than any other British fighter 135 and below besides Khan. Fact. Watch one of his fights and tell me he has no skills. Is it such a ****ign bad thing that we want our fellow scot to win, without some jumped up little ***** of a fanboy coming in and saying he is ****. **** off with that ****.

In light of people over-reacting, I'm going to add an AAA avatar for the week of the fight.
Thankyou Fluxstuff my good man

This is a messageboard for opinions you know and because you have 10,000,000 posts it doesn't make your opinion 10,000,000 more times relevant than his. I have read many of your posts and you appear to know your onions mate I enjoy reading most that gets put on here but when you are policing the place like you appear to be what hope do any newbs have ?? I have barely posted anything since I joined and when I did I got the old " when hatton gets schooled you won't be here " well guess what I am, and furthermore I love this site but you jumping down someones throat for posting his thoughts are out of order imo and hardly likely to encourage new posters etc to get involved...........
I cannot ****in believe your post newb...

ME undermine HIM???

Read it again, & this time read it properly. The guy came in & attacked me & my country, & I come back & defend myself with a reasoned argument & its ME in the wrong? The mind boggles, it really does...

Read my earlier posts. I dont hate newbs, just the stupid ones. & you fall into the latter category with nonsense posts like that. However Im not judging you too early, as we all make mistakes from time to time. You got a second chance my man, as Im in a good mood this fine morning.

Exactly Smithy.
Some of these newbs seem to forget its more than just a mere post count, its the effort that goes into that post count. Its qualityAND quantity that counts, & Im never going to give newbies respect who come in & act like they know it all when we dont even know who thay are, or what they stand for.
They whinge "but Dunk, we are newbs & should be respected" ****in earn it then. I havent posted here for years just to have some newb come in & think they can start threads off dissing the regulars as if they dont even exist, when we put a lot of blood sweat & tears into the forum.
It might not be right us regulars getting ****ed off at some of the newbs, but just like the newbs have the freedom to come in & disrespect the regulars here, us regulars should hve the right to tell them we arent happy with them if they are arrogant ****s without earning the right to be.
& newbs coming in & being cheeky as **** without the posts to back it up? **** 'em. & I would like to think many of the other regulars here feel that way too, like us.
& all the bull**** that I hate newbs? There are certain 'newbs' here who got my respect right away. Cos if you are a good poster, I can spot it right away. As I have always said, its not newbs I hate, just stupid/ disrespectful newbs.

Im not asking for newbs to come in & ****lick the regulars, Im just asking for newbs to try & argue sensibly until they establish themselves instead of talking to the vets here like we dont matter. I mean, if it wasnt for the vets/regulars here, would the forum be so appealing?

Quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever read , this is a forum mate you are taking this way too serious talking about respect your street etc , I have my own opinions and whether or not it gets me your respect or not mi owd is nether here nor there in my eyes.

I understand that you don't want the board clogging up with endless posts on the same topic like we had before the pbf v hatton fight but give the guy a break maybe he didn't see the other thread.........

Bomber, I think Smithy was using his street as an example to help explain his point better.

I also agree with Dunky on the offensive post that was aimed towards him and his country. Surely people cannot expect to come onto a forum and slag off a nation of people and expect zero retaliation, as a Scotsman I found it offensive and childish too.
