This being pay-per-view in the United States is a pretty tall ask for most fans, but of all the pay-per-view main events we’ve seen in 2016, counting those that are coming up, this is by far the most evenly-matched of the fights on paper

It's funny because Postol is a +500 underdog, so if that's the most evenly matched fight.

But I actually agree that this is competitive and worth watching. It says a lot though when two potentially cream of the crop undefeated boxers are fighting on PPV and nobody really knows who they are.

I remember when people thought he had a legit shot against Mayweather. It's sad that the title describes him as a 'former DWTS contestant' and mentions nothing about his boxing career, damn that's cold blooded

GGG/Jacobs is going to purse bid. There was a chance they'd change the percentages from 75/25 to something closer but it's gonna remain that way. We will see if Jacobs still wants the fight

Great fight. I think Kovalev pulled it out, but Ward weathered the storm and turned it around as it went on.  I wouldn't be entirely surprised if the judges went his way.

Ward showed a lot of heart in turning the fight around, but I think Kovalev did enough to put himself up by a few more rounds than Ward was able to make up.

Yeah. Hopkins kept going on about getting pushed through the ropes. Nothing close to that happened. Also claiming to have hurt his ankle in the fall... somehow?

One of Floyd's fighters, Gervonta Davis is 16-0 with 15 KO's and fighting for a world title soon. He's good friends with Cody Garbrandt, which is cool. He also was trained by Cutty, which is cooler:

Quote
Davis has been training at Upton Boxing Center since he was five years old.[4] Davis is trained by Calvin Ford who was the inspiration for the character Dennis "Cutty" Wise on the hit HBO television series, The Wire.[5][6] Davis had a very successful amateur career, winning many National Championships.

Being a 'Baltimore' fighter is gonna be a thing, now.

The Chocolatito fight was a garbage decision, especially considering the fact that the headbutts didn't even really play a role in the scoring even though they clearly affected the fight. They took a point away after like 6 of them. But they also rewarded the headbutt, that early knockdown was not off of a punch, so it cancelled out and he got a bunch of free fuckin' headbutts.



Go to 7:01 for a slow motion replay of the first round 'knockdown'. It's clear that he thrusts his head into him and that's what knocks him off balance, not the body shot. You can even see Chocolatito motion to the ref as he went down that it wasn't a punch, it was an illegal blow (but hard to get all that across with the language barrier). Immediately after that replay, they show it from another angle that makes the headbutt even clearer.

This was like the Holm/De Randamie of boxing reffing for me.
