    When paying to go out to the fights I'd rather see a fight like this (assuming they are evenly matched) than a prospect walking over a journeyman there to lay down. In filling out a card I wish more match makers would consider this. Much rather see two nobodies evenly matched than a one round walk over and Cardi B playing for a half hour to fill the space between fights.

    Glass jaws DO exist in boxing, denier. And both of these guys CLEARLY have them. Stensky has been KOd in 44 of his 45 losses; while Hrebik in 12 of his 14 losses.

    A matchup like this interests me. A KO is almost guaranteed.

    I love it when those shards fly all over the ring. I wish a KO would occur in every fight - the more brutal and conclusive, the better!!

    Blimey, the legendary ATG poster Zakman himself. Not replying to your point, which I'm undecided on--just saying nice to see you again. Been on a major hiatus and first time I've seen one of your posts since returning (I haven't even sorted an avatar yet) --so delightful to see an old pal maestro poster.

    It's a ludicrous fight. The laws of physics and logistics say there can't be a winner in this. Could tear a hole in the very fabric of Boxing reality, warping everything we thought we knew about the sport. Was this fight NASA, JPL and American Institute of Biological sciences passed?.

    Fights like this are more common than you might think.

    Winner nudges that much closer to .500! :deal:

    Everytime I bring up the general forum page, my brain starts playing that Star Wars song in my head, when Luke and Obi 1 enter the bar and first meet Han Solo and Chewy, and all of those weird looking critters are bee bopping around. Very fitting.

    Mendoza is actually far more active in Classic.

    Ya but most of the other critters dont post a lot in there, do they? Hasnt it always been a way more mature crowd? I actually like Mendoza a little anyways.

    I was interested that you swooped in to a post replying to the Professor. It's not the first time you've done that...
