Default Boxing sucks right now......all these canceled fights and s***

There nothing to talk about we got Broner fighting a bum

Hopkins vs. Cloud might be the most significant fight out It would be crazy if he git KO'd

that would make an empty boxing quarter 1 2013 somewhat meaningful

we all talking about who Floyd gonna fight and Danny Garcia's girls tweets really?

Top 20

Not a ****ing chance. The guy who wouldn't even have a black sparring partner?

Agreed. Not many salivating match-ups in the first quarter of this year, unlike the back-end of 2012. Hopefully it picks up after what will be a slow spring and we get some good fights in the summer / fall.

Broner's not fighting a bum, just a guy who is thoroughly out classed.

That said, the fight most on my radar is Arreolla. I've met him and we have friends in common. A slim, focused Cris can make a run in this division and he's fighting here in OC.

Without all of those personal connections, though, I probably would care about as much as the rest of ESB, little to none.

I think Cloud will probably win by UD, but Hopkins even now is probably too cagey/dirty to get himself stopped. Wishing Cloud the best of luck though, Hopkins needs to retire.

Of guys at 175, only Kovalev probably has a chance at putting the old man away.
