    Canelo is the face of boxing. He has accomplished so much and is still on the move.
    Not a fan of his tactics to always have the advantage but he learned from the best (PBF) and he is just at the height of his career.
    Next stop might as well be Wilder:D:boxing1@ a catch weight of course:yaay

    The "Top 25 MUST WATCH Boxing Matches" survey in the Classic Section has less than a week left until the deadline, should anyone here be interested in participating.

    Officially just under 6 weeks to go. So those who are interested, please get them in sooner than later!

    :thumbsup:

    Hearns would have destroyed Floyd.

    I'd forgotten how close and technical a fight Hearns and Benitez was. I don't know what that one judge was thinking, 146-139?

    Thanks for the great vid again Rums...

    Are you saying "relatively new streaming app" on purpose now? Obama was still president when it saw the light! :lol:
    And by the way, there's no i in Povetkin... well... err, there is one of course, but not in front of the e. Where does your Povietkin come from?

    This rematch really is difficult to predict. How did Whyte recover from the KO, mentally and physically? How did Povetkin recover from Covid? Was Povetkin somewhat lucky to be able to land that punch or not? Aas it was clearly measured and set up, but he was clearly losing the fight before that. Does he have the range and angle stored now? Has Whyte trained on avoiding that uppercut, which he had trouble with his entire career? Did either use the Covid break to roid up again?
    Questions, questions and more questions... We have to wait for March 6 for some answers.

    You know, having recently watched it the whole way through, I was surprised one judge had it even. To me it felt like one of those fights that was super competitive in every round, but I definitely thought Tommy won the majority of the rounds myself. The one card was actually wider than that, however. It was 146-137.

    The one in the middle felt the most "accurate" to me (which I believe was 144-139).

    But it was an absolutely fascinating match-up, and Benitez sure was a master of being elusive and providing a slippery target.
