Enzo says a lot of things. Could you say for sure that isn't a motivational tactic?

Means **** all.

Boxing is already dwindling, and its demise will be fairly quick if people start getting credit for doing nothing

Besides, it wasn't quite to that extreme anyway, because Joe did land, even if they weren't powerful
OK so the TFFP Icelandic State Atheltic Commision may not score for Ring Generalship but I do and the judges are meant to as well, I KNOW that Hopkins won this fight regardless of the bizarre scoring. Nothing will convince me i'm wrong.

Wow, you really are a smarmy little smart arse prick with those personal jibes aren't you? There was me thinking you were one of the better posters in here...

Personal jibes? How was that personal! It was a tongue in cheek comment based on you creating your own method for scoring. Grow up.

Can you explain to me the ring generalship on display from Hopkins?

I honestly must have missed something. I saw a guy running back onto the ropes, looking for a chance to fire single shot counters before holding. Repeat ad nauseum

From my point of view, the only general in there was Joe Calzaghe. He held the middle of the ring, made all the play and even adjusted after a ropey start, whereas Hopkins' gameplan never changed

Don't worry, TFFP just doesn't like anyone who has the audacity to disagree with him.

You've just called me a smart arse liitle prick so aside from making me want to punch your face in I really have little desire to have a adult conversation with you. Go and find someone else to insult.

lol!!! How long did we agree on? When the scores were read out I thought I would be happy irrespective of the winner due to my win-win situation but the first thing that went through my mind was my new avatar followed by my Vcash on Box Picks now reading zero after a small time as world #1. I hate the internet.... Just want to go back to my own little bubble

I was actually making an honest attempt to understand how you scored it, and get this thing back on track. After you were the first one to get personal, making a snide comment about my location, as if its somehow relevant

Overall, I guess you really are a prick, and one that can dish it out but not take any

You're the one who always starts swearing & sounding genuinely angry. Reality check, it's only the internet.
