I remember Larry saying years later that in the middle of the fight, Tex smiled at him and told him, "I'm not going anywhere."
Holmes put an absolutely merciless beating on Cobb. It was tough to watch as a kid, Tex wouldn't go down and just kept eating punch after punch...
@IntentionalButt I know I'm not in on this, but any spare alone time I have at home is spent watching fights. Here's one for you I just watched...
It's Coppinger so take it with a grain of salt. I hope it's not happening. Truax is a really good dude and at 36 he doesn't need to get punished...
116-111 is ****in repulsive.
114-113 Vargas. Very close fight. Could go either way. Judges will give it to Mikey though.
I have it even thru 11.
Mikey just lighting Vargas up with the straight right hand.
A beautiful pair of 1-2's to drop Vargas. The power was there on those shots. Huge turn of events.
Mikey throws that picture perfect 1-2, but the hand speed and power is not there at 147.
Going with Vargas because Mikey just looks fleshy at 147. Mikey is a much better boxer with a great skillset....but he should still be campaigning...
This is true. He just has not looked good the last few times out. I was probably a little harsh.
Ahhh **** Chuck, let him revel in the moment. Could be the last one at this stage of his career, now that he's got a belt again. He's all blood...
Yafai is done. Got beaten soundly vs Isreal Gonzalez 2 fights ago and was absolutely decimated by an older, slower, albeit game and relentless,...
Boooooom!!!!! Over...so awesome!!!!!
Yesss!!!! Choco turning back the hands of time tonight. It makes me so happy.
Brilliant, dude. Just brilliant.
Solid work on the RBR, boss.
Choco consistently landing hooks to the body. Yafai is playing Choc's game.
Agreed. Kenney and Mannix are the worst.
Hard fight for me to score as I am unabashedly pulling for Choco and don't like Yafai, but I have it 4-1 Choco.
Yeah, he is noticeably slower these days, the reflexes are fading.
Choco looking better than I expected so far. Finding a home for the uppercut and starting to mix his shots up well. Solid round.
