Best performance and best win of Danny Garcia's career in my opinion.

I agree, I was thinking the exact same thing in this fight. I would also say it's my favorite Garcia fight.

Champion97's picture

I remember at the time thinking Matthysse was going to blast him out of there early, and he was dangerous in the first couple of rounds, but Garcia, although under threat, inevitably cautious, kept the fight in the balance for 6 rounds, and after that, he took over, Matthysse did rally late, landed one stand out shot, maybe won a round, but Garcia had to not get knocked out at that point, he finished strongly, and on my card, he won quite wide.

Looking back, I don't think Garcia got the credit he deserved for the Khan victory.

A lot of people were picking Matthysse from what I heard. He was able to keep the fight close and took over in the later rounds. I remember that shot from Matthyse in the late round, he knocked out Danny's mouth piece, then ended up getting knocked down. I would say the best round of the fight. Also the set up for the knock down by Garcia was impressive.

I agree on that.

Champion97's picture

Well that's interesting, because I didn't see it that way, Garcia did a lot of impressive things in the fight, but by my reckoning, the knockdown was not one of them, in fact, I thought the referee called it wrong, and it wasn't a knockdown, fascinating how things look different from different angles. You could be right, the referee is the one who is right there, can see what I can't see.

Tomorrow, Groves vs Eubank, come on Groves! Put this mot***f***** away!
Haha sorry, no difficulty seeing who I want to win.
I have a feeling Garcia vs Rios might be a classic, Garcia, a couple of years younger, slightly closer to being a genuine welterweight, maybe slightly higher in talent, but Rios, wrong for Garcia, does he want this win more? Garcia, coming off the longer break, not unbeaten, and fighting a former world champion who has still win 3 of his last 4. I think Garcia will win, but I'm rooting for Rios, and it will not be easy, I wouldn't be shocked of Garcia stopped him, but I also wouldn't be shocked if Rios pulled out an upset, I say Garcia wins a decision, but you never know, Rios has a chance.

That could be the case, still a good performance from Garcia though. I thought it was a knockdown.

You got your wish, Groves won, I'm proud of him for winning. I haven't watched the fight yet, but from what I heard was Eubank is overatted and isn't worth the hype. I even heard Nasseem Hamed let Jr have it. I have the same feeling about the Garcia fight, I feel like it could exceed expectations. I think Garcia wins a wide UD as my final prediction. Rios does have a chance though, the only times he's struggled was against movers like Bradley and Pacquiao.

Champion97's picture

Yeah man, he got the whooping he deserved. I hold no grudge against Eubank now, but after the way he behaved, it was good that he lost. Eubank talks like he is fine, but he will have a cry tonight, and that is normal for any fighter, he must be absolutely devastated, if he changes his persona, I would be happy for him if he came back and was successful, but in this fight, he took on a guy who was bigger, better than him. I'm so happy for George Groves, he has achieved in boxing now, people were saying he was done after the Badou Jack fight, well he is now a world champion who has defended twice, he has just caused what was a slight upset, and he has a spot in the final of a world boxing tournament.

Garcia vs Rios coming up.

Even though I don't hate Eubank I would agree that he got humbeled. It's good to see Groves accomplish so much after the Jack fight. Do you agree with everyone's assessment that Eubank Jr is overrated. Also how do you see Groves against the winner of Smith vs Braehmer?

They entered the ring now.

Champion97's picture

I do think he was overrated, it is what I said before, he can be as fast, powerful as he wants, it won't help him in terms of his other flaws, and in terms of calibre, boxing at a high level, using his twenties, learning, he hasn't done that, he has been fighting guys who are there to make him look good.

Great question, man, that is a tough one, I'd lean towards Smith, you?

Yeah, people were saying he can't box well at all, maybe he should work on that. He does look like the product of a fighter being made to look good against a certain level.

As of now I'm leaning towards Groves. That can also change.

Thoughts on Garcia vs Rios?

Champion97's picture

It will be some fight!!

Gutted for Bam Bam, but he should be proud of himself. Props to Garcia, he was under pressure, he was being attacked by a tough opponent, but he found a finish which it takes a dangerous fighter to inflict on an opponent, Garcia is adaptable, and he is always able to bring his skills up through the levels. People will say what they want to say, but I still think Garcia is dead even with Porter, just a notch below the top dogs. I'm not sure I like this being an eliminator to be honest, I can see why the Porters think they have been treated unfairly.

I can't wait, were going to get 2 good finals matches.

He gave him a tough fight. I thought that Rios possibly hurt himself on the knockdown. He landed awkwardly. I like Garcia vs Porter for a title eliminator, or even a regular fight. I think their styles make for an interesting fight.

What do you think the idea of Degale vs Eubank Jr? I thought of that since they both are coming off of losses and it's a genuine rivalry. I like the fight.

Champion97's picture

Absolutely, awesome!

Well he is safe, that is what matters. Tell you what, Danny Garcia gets some respect from me, telling the nasty people who I am always going off on, fuck them, talking BS about Brandon, when they could never box. Rios showed a lot of heart, a lot of guts getting up like that. Is Rios better than you thought? And do you think he is as good as I said he was? You can say that again! Maybe now that Porter has gone a bit badman on Thurman and Garcia, no more Mr nice guy, it might help him get the fights he targets. Maybe Garcia will want to fight Porter if he wants to punish him, and more importantly, if there is something to be gained from the fight. That's a downright 50/50 fight, who would you favour?

Not bad, but I think Eubank should go back down to 160, and Degale should focus on the Truqx rematch, assuming it goes ahead. Eubank wants to fight Truax, I think the Degale fight would take some negotiating, because if he can win a title against Truax, but not against Degale, why fight Degale? If either he has to to get the title shot, or it is financially worth his while, either is a possibility, and it is an interesting one.

Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs Juan Francisco Estrada next week! Why aren't more people talking about it?! Lower weights should be appreciated more, they give us entertainment value, they can punch against each other, and they have the work rate, the volume. Who wins this weekend out of the two 115 fights? The main event, and Cuadras vs Arroyo.

Do you know when the Super middleweight tournament finals will be on? Also do you think this super series will continue?

Yeah, I liked when he said that. Rios I think is better then what people give him credit for. He is a pressure fighter, not the best boxer, but he can give top fighters a tough fight. The only time I seen him struggle was against great fighters like Pacquiao and Bradley. I saw Porter get in confrontations with both, hopefully he can get one of those fights. My guess is that he fights one of them in his next fight. For Garcia vs Porter, I would maybe edge Porter because I think he's a stronger and more skillful version of Rios and Rios gave Garcia some problems, I think Porter could have more success. For Danny he's good at picking his shots and fighting off the ropes which makes it interesting.

I agree, but I think if he decides to stay at 168 the Degale fight is a good one. The Truax rematch should be Degales first priority, then if he gets past him go for a Eubank fight.

It's an underrated fight in my opinion, I even forgot about it to see it on HBO's boxing page. I'm going to try to watch it. As much as I like the heavyweight division, I like the lighter weights the best, 115 is an underrated weight class in my opinion. I think Sor Rungvisi and Cuadras win, what about you?

Champion97's picture

Well I know that Groves's shoulder injury makes it slightly more complicated.

It would be such an interesting fight, I'd be 51/49 on Garcia, but what a fight that would be. I think Garcia is the better counter puncher, the more adaptable, and he can box on the back foot, Porter is not a good boxer on the back foot, and he is not a counter puncher. Porter is far faster in hand and foot than Garcia, he is much, much more nimble, he has the better jab, he has the much higher output, and although he is short, he has been at 168, he is a tank, and it does not lessen his stamina, Garcia is I think better at 147 now than a couple of years ago, but he is not as physically strong as Porter. Both Porter and Garcia lost close Keith Thurman, both have great chins, both a great inside fighters, and speaking in that, I think Garcia might be the better inside fighter, because although he doesn't do it as much now, Porter, for all his inside fighting ability, can tend to smother his own work, but Porter is better on the outside. I really hope we see Porter vs Garcia this year, I wouldn't know whether to call it that or Garcia vs Porter, there is no B-side.

I'm not a big fan of that fight to be honest, it is not a bad fight, if it makes sense, there is no particular reason it shouldn't go ahead, I just don't think it is a particularly exciting fight.

I agree, how about Nietes vs Reveco, and Viloria vs Delakian?

They might delay it a bit. That's my guess.

It is an interesting fight. Garcia is the better boxer then Porter, but Porter has the advantage in strength, so he could bully Garcia on the ropes. The only problem with Porters inside game is that he smothers his work like you said, Garcias inside game is pretty solid as well. I hope we see Porter Garcia as well, I'm pretty confident it gets made next. Also do you think fighters are avoiding Errol Spence?

If he decides to stay at 168 I'm for it, otherwise there's no point.

I'm not sure about those two, what do you think of Pacquiao vs Alvarado?

Champion97's picture

It almost certainly will, it's a bad one. Better late than never, and I don't think it will have to be postponed too late, maybe just a month.

It depends on whether or not Garcia really wants to fight Porter, and it isn't about being scared or not being scared, people only play that card because this is a fighting game, if it was a non-combat sport, nobody would say that crap, but anyway, if Garcia decides it is financially worth the work, the risk, and the opportunities it could are likely are likely to follow it, also, he becomes more eager to hit Porter because he doesn't like him (but that is less of a reason and shouldn't be relevant at all), then Garcia should agree to it, and if he does, we have a fight to watch!

Yes and no, I think Keith Thurman is thinking of a Spence fight like a fat cop thinks of a fitness test for their job, avoiding all until the absolute mandatory, he will fight Spence, in his mind, but he doesn't want that fight for a while. I think Porter knows he wouldn't neat Spence to be honest, they are close friends. Garcia, Horn, I think would gladly fight Spence. Porter is my favourite fighter of the bunch, and if there one thing he doesn't lack, it is toughness and bravery, but I do think he is the one who doesn't want to fight Spence at any point. What do you think?

Yep, I mean it is not a bad idea like Benevidez vs Gavril III next, but it is not a good idea like Porter vs Garcia, it wouldn't be a fight I'd be particularly for, or against.

I think Viloria and Reveco.

Pacquiao should be retired, but if he must continue, it's OK, Alvarado is just getting the best fights he believes he can win, being active, boxing is a job, not just for the screens, not really a fight I'm against, but not particularly for it either to be honest. You?

I will say Groves is a tough guy, fought through that, then with a broken jaw. I have a lot of respect for Groves.

I think he does, he's shown to want to fight the best. Do you think it's ducking to avoid a fighter at a certain period of time? I think the timing is right for this fight.

I could see that. He does want to fight Spence but probably next year. I don't know if Porter wants the fight or not. Thurman and Garcia would probably fight him. I hope that Porter would fight spence, that would be a great fight.

I see what you mean.

I would pick Vilora I'm not sure about the other fight.

I think he should retire after this fight.

Champion97's picture

People don't give him credit for the guts he showed against Froch, in the first fight, staying up, and in the second fight, getting up, the second he fully woke up.

Yeah I think so, but I think it is also a case maybe of not vacating, fighting Spence if he has to, but ideally, never fighting him, I could be wrong, it is a tough question, we can't know, only time will tell us. If Thurman doesn't ever want to fight Spence, you can't blame him, some fighters know when they are going to win, and when they are not going to win, it is a smart move, not a cowardly move.

Well you can't have everything I suppose, and it isn't that I don't like that fight, I just prefer Porter vs Garcia, Thurman vs Porter II.

It won't happen, not unless Alvarado pulls out the upset, in which case, even then he might not walk away.

I can't watch Rungvisai vs Estrada, it won't be showed in the UK, disappointed.

He's one of the tougher fighters in boxing.

I think so in a sense but also no, I say yes because you're avoiding someone in their prime but on the other hand you're still fighting them. Some people think that's what a bully does is pick their battles but it's also smart to, what do you think?

True.

I hope this is his last fight but I doubt it is win or lose.

I think they'll announce it later in the week some fights announce what channel it is on late.

Champion97's picture

He has never gotten the credit he deserves, he has bounced back very well from the losses, boxing well, with spite and sharpness in every performnce, beating Martin Murray, winning a world title, and pulling out the upset against Eubank Jr. I think Groves should definitely retire after the tournament, but what a career he has had.

Boxing is about being smart outside the ring as well as inside the ring, taking advice from people who really, really know what they are talking about, probably what Thurman is doing. A fighter cannot please everybody, it would take Thurman 2 years to fight Spence, and Porter, and Garcia, and Crawford, people need to watch less TV, play less video games, get out into the real world, and wake the heck up, you can't have everything. I think you can't be smart, without giving someone else a raw deal, is a company, a car company, electronic company, whatever, are they bullies for 'stealing business from a rival company?, no, it isn't personal, it is business. If the fans want Thurman to fight Spence, and Spence wants to fight him, that isn't his problem, he doesn't care about Spence not getting opportunities, he isn't doing what Bright House do, taking money from the fans on a years long contact or something, if the fans really upset with him, no they stop paying to see him fight, he won't criticise them. I believe Thurman believes he can beat Spence, and if he is ordered, he will fight him, and for all we know, I could be very wrong about this, and he every intention of fighting Spence at some stage, but is simply taking time to regain consistency, before taking a fight that hard. I guarantee, most people who trash Thurman, have never boxed, because they are impatient, deluded, and have an unrealistic attitude, most of them probably illegally stream fights, or pay for them with money they shouldn't have or should be spending on their kids, I'm not talking about people who say 'FfF Thurman just fight Spence, OT don't want no part of Spence he knows he would lose smh, should vacate or have belts taken away', I have no problem with them, I understand their frustration, but 'Furman a pussy he not fight Spence too chicken, of he a man he fight him now Porter no skill, Garcia a pussy, Thurman only fight bums, he fight Budapest and Crawford before end of 2018 or never gets respect', well they are the dropped litter of the boxing world.

I hope so!!

Prograis vs Indongoo who you got?

I agree, he has came along way after his losses, I noticed that after the Jack fight, he has done a great job since. I agree on the retirement as well, win or lose he should retire. I saw Brahmer had to withdraw and was replaced with someone I never heard of.

A fighter has to do what's best for them, not the fans. That sounds selfish but boxing is a brutal sport and you have to do it your way. I don't think that Thurman is ducking Spence at all either. I think that he wants to be more active and be the best version of himself as possible against Spence. He knows Spence is very good, and he probably feels one fight a year isn't good enough preparation to fight a tough fighter like Spence. My guess is they fight early next year.

Same, it's always a shame when a fighter goes on too long and makes people forget about their greatness. Like Roy Jones and Hopkins, I am glad they are retired.

Progaris, what about you?

I wouldn't mind seeing Thurman vs Ugas next, what about you? Or maybe against Spence.

Champion97's picture

Yep, could have been worse, Holzken is good, unbeaten, 13-0, a puncher, active, confident, but he's 34, and he hasn't competed at a high level at all. I think Smith should win with no trouble, and it will be an easier fight than Braehmer.

Nobody makes fans pay to watch fights, the sport is what it is, that's the bottom line, people can't change the sport, boxing is boxing, if they get disappointed, they can spend their ticket, subscription money, and viewing time on something else, of they decide it doesn't damage the sport, if anything, makes it more fascinating, keep paying, enjoying watching boxing, supporting professional athletes in a sport/business/fight game.

I hope that is the case, we, as fans, obviously hope Thurman wants to fight Spence, and it is possible, one thing I will say, is that mentality is important, and champions do not want to be bullied into fights by the public, and that is very understandable, because when they are training, if it their goal, it much much better for their mindset. I think Thurman vs Spence will happen one say, next year like you said, I think Spence would win, but what a fight that would be, I'd give Thurman a good shot. It is a shame for Thurman that some of his prime time has been wasted, not his fault, I feel sorry for him, but first the car accident, did his neck in, then the terrible arm injury.

It was long overdue, it was sad for Hopkins to be knocked out like that, but that is what happens when you let 51 year olds into the ring, I think the age limit should be 45, 40-45 should be assessed medically. I think the time limit should be 18 years, that's my opinion, some disagree, but that's what I think, because this is a dangerous sport.

I think so, I think Indongo is a tougher opponent that Postal, he is far, far better than he was made to look against Crawford, but I think Prograis, good, tough test though.

I don't like Ugas. No Spence vs Ugas, he has nothing to do with the WBA or C at the moment, that was IBF eliminator he just won, if Spence has to fight Ugas, then he should fight another twice this year.

I never heard of him but I expect it to be a short nights work for Smith.

I think we as fans should push for fights like those, it's what keeps it going. But yeah that's how a fan can protest these fights.

He says he does want the Spence fight but just not this year. I think Thurman wants to be active as possible so he can be on form to fight Spence. I think Thurman is in a situation like Dela Hoya where he doesn't want to fight him immediately, but eventually. I think Spence wins the fight.

Very overdue. I think Jones was more overdue, because I thought he lost his killer instinct after the Tarver fight he got knocked out in. For Hopkins I think he should've retired a little earlier. He still got a few impressive wins late in his career, but Jones should've retired a while ago.

So you think Postol is a little overrated? Indongo will be a tough test for Progarias though.

Why don't you like him. I don't hate him or like him I just think he's a good fight for Spence next.

Champion97's picture

Holzken might give Smith a tougher fight than we expect, late opponent switches are tricky, and Braehmer and Holzken are not similar.

That's understandable, I think the injuries have destroyed him mentally, it isn't good for anyone, Thurman, Spence, all of us who watch the fights, but it is not Thurman's fault. People are impatient, they are negative, they focus on what they don't have rather than what they do have, I think there are too many spoiled people around now, I mean, in the old days, after the war, all of our grandparents will tell us that back in their day, getting to watch any of these fights would have been exciting, and as a pose to nowadays, people just eat chocolate and think nothing of it, back in the day, everyone appreciated it. I think people who aren't privileged, who can appreciate what they have in life, are talking about how great Thurman vs Spence would be in the future, and reflecting upon Joshua vs Klitschko, Golovkin vs Canelo II, looking forward to the rematch, rather than sitting on their backsides forgetting about past fights, and demanding Thurman vs Spence, picking on the more frequently injured, less active, less dominant fighter, demanding the fight, now!!

What changed your mind?, I can see both guys winning, but I think Spence's ability to use his power, his skill, and fighting ability, it just stands out in my opinion.

Now?, definitely, just as Kovalev is. I think Indongo is better than Postal, he's younger, and I think he is more skilled, but mostly it's the age advantage, he might upset Prograis, but I think Prograis is a very good fighter, and he will knock him out, shame we won't see Crawford vs Prograis, but I suppose the time was right for Crawford to move up, but I'm very interested to see how the next couple of years unfold for the Nebraskan, was it a mistake to move up? The weight will affect his speed, power, he's fighting bigger guys, it's interesting, I think Jeff Horn might give him some problems, he has weight on his side, Horn is big for the weight, and Crawford and Horn are both undefeated, both the same age, based on these three facts, it can't be the mismach everyone seems to think it is.

Ah nevermind, just my dad has annoyed me for months by going on about Ugas, it was a running joke, Ugas has a funny name, but no I don't like him, I think Spence vs Ugas is an absolute mismatch, like Golovkin vs Wade, Garcia vs Salka, Brook vs Bizier, he gets sparked. I was really mad at Vic Drakulich for docking 2 points from Dulorme against Ugas, he would have won otherwise, Ugas was moaning about nothing, and Drakulich was guessing, idiot!

Magdelano vs Dogboe who you got?

That's true. Like Joshua vs Takam, the reason he had struggles because he was a late switch, if he knew he was fighting him for a longer time he would've had an easier time.

I don't think the injuries have taken a toll mentally on Thurman. I feel he just wants to be more active before the big fight. Fans will realize it's worth the wait once the fight comes.

I think you summed it up good on why Spence will beat Thurman. I agree on all those reasons.

I think Progarrias is more fresh, Indongo is coming off a loss and might not be at his best. I'm fine with not seeing Crawford fight Progarias but it would've been fun to watch. I also think it will be interesting to see how Crawford does in the biggest division in boxing. I think he could be the best, but I could be wrong on that. I can see Horn giveing him some problems, in the end I see Crawford stopping Horn.

I see what you mean.

Good fight I got Magdelano, what about you?

That's true. Like Joshua vs Takam, the reason he had struggles because he was a late switch, if he knew he was fighting him for a longer time he would've had an easier time.

I see what you mean.

Good fight I got Magdelano, what about you?

Champion97's picture

That was one of the reasons. I think the situation is easier for Smith because despite the 5 years less of age, I think Holzken is a level below Braehmer, whereas Takam and Pulev, who's better?, it's 50/50 for me, but they are so different, in so many ways, and Joshua did a great job, he fought a tough opponent, and he was dominant let's be honest, it wasn't the mismatch most of Joshua's previous fights had been, but he still won most if not all of the rounds, and got the stoppage.

Well that's optimism, not a bad thing, it's not unrealistic, he might be able to make a bad situation good, only increase his eagerness to get in the ring, but we can't know, we won't find out until he fights, one thing I can say, is that it is extremely infuriating when you get injured, and for Thurman, he has had one unfortunate injury to the arm, in a year which followed a nasty cafe accident he was in, which did his neck in, that's rough, it is not his fault, but the main thing is, although he only fought once in each of the years 2016 and 2017, both were meaningful fights, both were great wins, one was even a unification win. What is important is that Thurman fights again soon, and I think it is also important that he fights twice this year, I don't think he should have a meaningful fight until 2019, but he should fight tough opponents, have fights like his bouts against Bundu, Guerrero, Collazo, fight in July and December, worry about 2019 when he gets to that bridge, but for now, fight twice this year. That's a positive attitude, I like that way of thinking, I'm sure most will think so and enjoy the fight. Interestingly, more and more people seem to be deciding they think Thurman beats Spence, given that Spence is the guy with the momentum, the real stand out wins against Brook, the dominance fight by fight, and the reputation, Thurman having more people favour him in the fight is good for the fight.

It is such an interesting one, because Thurman is so heavy handed, has so much snap behind every shot, he has great variety, they both have great variety, but Thurman's movement is great, he moves his head, he works on the ropes very well, Spence is naturally bigger, younger, I'm not sure if he hits harder, but he has that accuracy, he might be the best body puncher on the planet, he's definitely up there, and it is such a natural part of his arsenal. I think Thurman is the more nimble of the two, maybe the more complete boxer at the moment, but Spence is I think more durable, and is the better all round offensive fighter. I think because Spence is a year or two younger, he has more improvement ahead of him.

He's not going to be as good as he was at 140, I mean how could he be?, this is his second move up in weight, and 7 lbs is a lot, and keep in mind that Thurman, Spence, Porter, they are not small guys, they make 147, but it isn't their natural weight class, they've been at 154, Porter has been at 168. The question is, how good will Crawford still be at 147?, he's 30, not young, but not old either, he's 5'8, not tall for a welterweight, not small for a welterweight either, I think Crawford is a fresh 30 year old, and has maybe 3 good years left, and he has the brain, the experience, I think Horn is beatable, so Crawford can afford to test himself, adapt to the weight, without overlooking him, and hopefully for Crawford, because he was a giant lightweight, and had years at 140, his speed, power etc, won't be compromised too much by the move up, but he is the oldest, and much the smallest out of himself, Thurman, and Spence, they are all undefeated, and they are all punchers, and to be honest, Crawford may have been smart to stay at 140, fight Prograis, dominate the division, then again, maybe the motivation he would get from 147 would be enough for him to take the risks, and he would rather take the chances. I think people are going to give Crawford a lot of criticism if he struggles against Horn, but if he beats another unbeaten guy his age, who is a world champion, who has weight on his side, I'll give Crawford credit, I expect him to, and I don't think he will be pushed close to the limit, but it won't be a walk in the park, it could be the toughest fight of his career so far, but I guess that doesn't say so much, at 32-0, the only struggle I've seen for Crawford lasted 4 rounds before he showed a testament to his adaptability and turned it around in the extra round with a knockdown.

I think Dogboe might pull it out. Interesting fight.

Which are you looking forward to more out of the events next week? Kovalev and Bivol's fights? Or Wilder's punishment for fat boy Luis?

You recommend any lighter weight fights?

Champion97's picture

Yes.
Menayothin vs Juarez
Menayothin vs Jerusalem

Also where is the Groves vs Eubank fight card so I can submit one? I'm scoring it soon.

Champion97's picture

No idea what is going on with that, I'll try to sort it.

Champion97's picture

Would you like to add Thurman, Spence, and Jacobs' next fights? Or should I add one or two of them?

Yeah I could add them. Add the Jacobs one actually and I'll get the other 2.
