I agree here Professor. The year typically starts off slow, but this year has been a clusterfuck.

There's been a lot of fights that looked good on paper and the headlines, but fuck-all has actually happened thus far. To make it worse, we have this Mayweather nonsense pulling "fans" out of the ground like the fuckin' Thriller video.

Seems like these ballsack fighters are talking big as if they're built like transformers, but they seem to be built up like Mr. Potato Head or Humpty Dumpty or some shit this year. I wanna ask these guys if they're training to fight a human being or an actual fuckin' transformer. Is there something in the air???

If they cough or sneeze, they're injured, and the fight is off. Hell, just when I leaned on FNFs and ShoBox for my boxing fix, Joel Diaz just conveniently gets injured before this bout on FNFs tomorrow.

This shit looks bad man, real bad. Floyd has a pubic's hair of time left to pick an opponent and build a fight, one of which anybody hardly knows, and the other is unknown with one fuckin' arm. Who'da thunk boxing would start out in such a fecal-like manner. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dntknw.gif)

PS: Excuse my rant, I tend to get a kick out it from time to time. Label me an over-emotional boxing fan with purpose, lol. What's that purpose? Who knows. As Bnoles4life would say, "we're all getting pumpfaked here". (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Had a similar lament earlier today. What a muddy start to the boxing year, indeed! I've yet to get really excited about any matchup and some of the recent fights have been either uninspiring, a complete mismatch or fluke-ish. And the few upcoming fights I was looking forward to: Garcia/Judah, Alexander/Brooks, Banks/Mitchell have been postponed or whatever (who knows) with some truly suspect injuries. I mean its almost surreal the frequency of these postponements of late. Smh.

Please let nothing happen to Broner or Reese in the next 2 weeks. May they both be sequestered in log cabins in the deep woods until the weigh-in! AND please let Reese present a challenge to Broner for at least six rounds or at the very least bring out a virtuoso performance from him that inspires my belief that he might just be the second coming of Floyd Mayweather after all. Thank you lord. Amen.

As for Floyd's bait and switch antics; my mischievous/rebellious side is rather enjoying it. It annoys me that Floyd can't sneeze without these penny-click wannabes writing an article about it...or that for months, they've reported with aplomb that Guerrero was his next opponent, as if contracts had been signed and Floyd had made an announcement. I like how they're all scrambling now to not look like bigger idiots...Dan Raphael has given me much laughter in the past couple days on his twitter: "I call BS on @floydmayweather...I do not believe he's fighting Alexander...it will be @Ghostbing." As he secretly sweats and prays FMJ doesn't make him eat those words by actually fighting Alexander...or someone else (still got fingers crossed for that May/JMM Dos). =)

Anyway....I'd like to segue into a mini-rant of my own: Nonito Donaire is now officially on my hated boxers list right along side Robert Guerrero, Karl Frotch, and honorary member Joshua Clottey. Someone please tell Donaire to shut up and fight someone of relevance. This guy has the biggest ego for someone who hasn't even done anything yet. We can thank the HBO cheerleaders and boxing "media" for helping to elevate his already high opinion of himself. I am ever convinced that Donaire nor Arum (for slightly differing reason) wanted any parts of Mares. And Donaire definitely wants no parts of Rigo.

If he doesn't fight Rigo in April...he stays on my hate list for life! Because that's a fight I want to see (one I think Donaire on size/reach alone should win) and I'm convinced he will weasel out of. But we'll see.

I agree. This year has been absolutely horrendous. The fights were so-so to begin with and now it seems like everyone is pulling out of them. Maybe it'll be a blessing in disguise. I remember last year there were TONS of potential big time fights that were supposed to happen and injuries derailed those, only for some underdog to spoil the party. Maybe the opposite will happen. Maybe these injuries will lead to the big time fight. I don't know. I'm grasping at straws trying to find some positive in this. I'm dying over here. Every Saturday night I look at my guide for HBO and Showtime like "WTF another Sat night with no Boxing?". I miss you boxing. "I'm mess without you...I miss your scent. I miss your musk. "

Wth, why would anyone hate the cobra? He's a bad ass. Plus he a part of one of the most anticipated rematches of the year the guy hardly ever takes a easy fight and its hardly ever boring.
