Boxing 2016-2017 Thread

For those of you familiar with BestFightOdds, they have a sister site called:

https://www.proboxingodds.com/

It's less about odds for me and more about what are the important fights coming up. It's a good roundup.

A few observations:

There are barely any worthwhile fights coming up. The fact that so many odds are lopsided, boxing has a matchmaking problem. Even the big names, when you're that established you shouldn't be fighting guys that you are a 15-1 favorite over. The few close fights between elite boxers are like Bradley/PacMan III, fuck that.

The big fights to me are really big though. Povetkin vs. Wilder is gonna be hot fire, and Thurman vs. Porter is a great fight (though that's three months away). Errol Spence and Anthony Joshua are both in good prospect fights as well, but those should be showcase fights. Fury/Wlad ehhh I'm not letting myself get up for that one.

To me though the biggest fight is Abraham vs. Gilberto Ramirez. Ramirez gets hit a lot, but he's got the chin to take it. Super exciting fighter who would probably get KO'd by GGG but it would be a fight that everyone would love to see. Plus the reach/height, chin, output and powerful body shots make him a live dog. He wouldn't back down, which has been a problem with a lot of past GGG opponents. The fact that he has no hype and a lot of people don't even know his name, the boxing marketing machine can use some work. But a big win against AA and people will know who he is.

Pac/Bradley 3 was the best of the trilogy, IMO.  Much more entertaining than I expected. It was too loud at the bar to really understand the post fight interviews, but did Kellerman drop Mayweather's name in there? I could have sworn I heard it.

Golovkin buzz sawed through Wade tonight on HBO almost no time at all. He was a -10,000 going into the fight. Don't see 100 to 1 odds so much anymore.

Will be interesting to see if Canelo takes the GGG fighter after he takes out Khan.  The money will be hard to turn down, even if it is essentially just to take an ass whooping.

The investment firm that gave PBC money to operate is being sued for nearly a billion dollars by investors because they gave them that money. So, the PBC experiment is over.

Canelo/Khan is tonight. Worth watching. Probably starts around 11:15-11:30 at the earliest, but some fights on the undercard are worth checking out so you won't be disappointed if you head to the local boxing bar before the main event.

Khan has been chinny against guys who couldn't really punch so I think he's gonna get KTFO against someone who can.

That's what most people think too, but I do think he'll use speed, footwork and smarts to make it a live fight for as long as it lasts. He is capable of winning a decision, but I agree that his chin will probably get wrecked at some point, I'm not sure he can survive for 12 rounds.

Canelo hit him so hard he didn't even celebrate.  It was clearly the strategy the whole time.  He didn't even consider trying to box with him.  Just looked for that shot the entire time.

Well that fight went about as predictable as it could.  There were actually a couple shots earlier where I thought Khan might have been wobbled but he held up.  That KO shot though....wow.

I believe GGG is mandatory opponent for Canelo now or his title is stripped so talk is now cheap.

Also, this fight proved that weight classes matter yet old Floyd still didn't lose a round to this crafty power puncher. Can't deny his GOAT status.

His haters were just ridiculous. Every opponent he took on later in his career was the guy that was finally going to "teach him a lesson" until Floyd schooled them in the ring, then suddenly it turned into "oh, well that guy was no good anyway"

Povetkin tested positive for meldonium and the Wilder fight is probably off. If you've seen his muscle mass increase over the last year, you'd have to assume he was on something.

Dude is the biggest phony with his tough guy act after taking down smaller dudes.

GGG doesn't need him. Chickanelo I is one of the biggest sellers in boxing but it was Cotto who sold that fight more than Amarillo. The Khan fight did between 450-580k which is good but not gawd status. GGG should face Danny Jacobs next, then unify the belts vs Saunders.

all these promoters are too afraid of having their top draw lose. But Canelo fighting a guy like that and getting that many buys will only add to his drawing power win or lose, imo.

That's why it's all about the MMA these days. Dana White is good for the sport in a competitive sense, getting the best out of the product.

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Report-Camps-for-Canelo-GGG-Targeting-Fall-2017-Showdown-106857

Quote
ESPN.com boxing scribe Dan Rafael reported Wednesday afternoon that the two sides have agreed to finally settle their differences at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds, but they won’t get in the ring to oppose one another until the fall of 2017.

Both combatants are expected to fight “multiple” times between now and then, with Canelo aiming to fight up to two times to acclimate to 160 pounds, though he is currently a world titleholder at that weight.

This seems weird.

Kell Brook is the best 147 pounder in the world, by far the best fighter GGG has faced, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he won. That's a great fight.
