Maybe Naazim can take some of that concrete he found in Margarito's gloves and glue it to Kirkland's chin.


or give him some of BHop's and Mosley's PEDs. that's really just some Ensure, Centrum Silver, and Viagra though. it very well might work though. if he doesn't just throw his chin out RJJ style he could have more success. i'm not sure how well the towel flying at his face will workout though, a large object flopping around by his face might remind him of the prison days.

More importantly Gravy, Naazim would have to be careful with those towels. Kirkland gets hit with one of them they may knock him out (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Finally watched the fight, and yes inexperience showed, but I think some are being pretty hard on Lemieux.

I was expecting Lemieux to have been exposed big time. I'm not saying he wasn't, because that is how the loss occurred, but he was controlling and dominating the fight. His problem I think is that he was too offensive minded, and didn't pace himself. He has clearly fallen in love with his power that so many punchers do, and went out of his way to look for the KO rather than just letting it come.
He needs to pick his shots better, and learn to counter a little bit. He didn't look like some defensive wizard or anything, but his defence wasn't terrible, he just got hit because he was too offensive minded and you do tend to get hit when you are in that frame of mind.
I don't think he can yet be classified as a total dud, I think he punches well but needs to polish up on some new things and start making some new habits in the ring. He is only 22, so on the bright side, he can learn from some of these things.
I understand he was hyped and being groomed as the next big thing, but I still don't think all is lost for him. I personally thought some were a bit hard on him, but time will tell.

Does Amir know your making eyes at Lemieux? I'd keep that on the low down Mexi, things could get messy otherwise. You sure do have a thing for young studs with china chins (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

LOL...if I'm not mistaken, Mexi's trained in the same gym as Khan before...there's no telling how bad he was eyeing the chinless wonder....Khan must have felt very uncomfortable...
