Hmm, to take a shot with newly earned Pacquiao dollars on Shumy?

Back in the plus (over the starting 500) after going broke on Zab Judah of all boxers.

A lot of people thought Judah would still beat Malignaggi.

I don't pretend to be some gambling wizard or anything but I think the draw might be a good play. Might be safer than the under.

500 on B-Hop.He's ready to go any time now but it will take somebody else with better skills than his opponent to do it.

You didn't think Murat showed kinks in his armor?

Shumenov is better than Murat.


Don't get me wrong, Bernard is a rightful fave, but Shumenov is no scrub. He is a dangerous guy for Hopkins to be taking on at the doorstep of fifty.

Going for the upset here.
I expect B-Hop to win but there's always a (bei)but.

It was one of those situations where I was confident in my pick until the fight started, watching how things were unfolding thinkin' "I should have seen this coming". Don't like to use hindsight but this time it was very clear. I agree with the post you made in the other thread how Paulie's really come on lately, I sure didn't see it coming years ago.

Yeah. I mean, had been looking mostly like unwashed ass for a long time (gift over Matthysse, forced to run scared; getting thoroughly outfought by Mabuza and well on his way to a loss before scoring a lucky punch to bail himself out; and never really getting into the contest with Khan, even discounting the fouls, his own speed neutralized and shut down). Of course things brightened a little in 2012 and 2013 with his exposure of Vernon Paris and giving a hassle to Garcia - but in all honesty Paris is domestic level talent and Garcia still clearly beat him and nearly got him chicken-dancing. Besides, even with those being prouder nights' work for him, the overall trend had been that he was vastly diminished from his prime - or hell, even from his Clottey self.

Meanwhile, the preceding few years had been a steady uptick for Malignaggi, ever since the Khan loss. From the move up to welter, his only really bad night was against Cano. He dominated all the B-level guys he was supposed to (faded and blown-up Jose Cotto, Lozada and Lora), exposed Senchenko for a weak paper titlist and turned his face into dog meat, and put up a very strong argument versus the still undefeated Broner at the apex of his swaggering confidence. Even with PCC, he didn't look horrible, just troubled more by a strong young kid that anybody expected given his massive edge in hand speed. I don't know that you can really complain of Malignaggi vs. Cano being a robbery without in fairness saying the same of Broner vs. Malignaggi - and for the record, neither fits the bill IMO. Both just close tough battles that could go either way.

So from 2010 on that makes five solid efforts (Lozada, Cotto, Lora, Senchenko, Broner) and one so-so one (Cano) from Malignaggi, compared with three shitty efforts (Matthysse, Mabuza, Khan) and two so-so ones (Paris and Garcia) from Judah.

At the end of the day, though, boxing is about 'most recent' impressions. Both had really gained a lot of respect in the losses they were each coming off (Malignaggi to Broner and Judah to Garcia, although in the latter case nobody was saying they scored it to Judah...although in counterpoint, Garcia is better than Broner...) so it was reasonable to call it a pick 'em heading in.

Fixed. No, it's not a big payoff, but I'm about to go to sleep, so I simply don't care. This is your problem now. I wash my hands of it.
