caneman

OMG, now that is robbery!
D-MARV
WTF?


Fuck Sturm and Fuck Germany!



This little bitch has the nerve to say he's chasing B-Hop's record. Fuck him!

He lost today... he can go fuck himself!

Caneman, cheers for putting this up. Massive respect. There are a shed load of posters on here but they are blinkered in their support of the sport.

I thought the fight was extremely close and I never figured Macklin would get a decision in Germany. The 116-112 was atrocious and personally I thought Macklin nicked it by a round or two.
Maxy
Looking for all the new posters to give their opinion on the fight.

Oh, it happened in Europe...Macklin? No idea...Sturm...um...didn't he fight De La Hoya once?

I had it 116-112 Macklin but 115-113 is ok but no closer IMO! Cheers Maxy drinks.gif

Makes me laugh mate...you know...shed loads of new posters and you'd expect some insight, some comments on what was a pretty damn good fight...but nah, if it ain't Mayweather or Pac it ain't shit.

Kids today need to go out more....

Damn! I knew Sturm was ripe. Thought Macklin would stop him late. That sucks!

Damnit, I was going to watch this today, but got caught up in other shit. A lot of people said Macklin would give Sturm one hell of a fight and he did. I guess he could get to B-Hop's record if they keep feeding him opponents in Germany, but it's starting to look like somebody will knock him off. I remember towards the end of Ottke's career he started getting lucky decisions too. Maybe Abraham can get down at 160, get a couple wins, and set up a huge fight in Germany.

I thought it was robbery..Macklin was really mixing up his shots good and did good body work and he was breaking through Sturms shield...what a shame
SENTRAL
I couldn't split em. Knew Sturm would get the verdict - it was a close, close fight and very entertaining in its own right.

In Europe the hometown fighter will never lose a tight bout.

Not watched the fight yet, on nightshift so got it recording, but thats a real shame for Macklin. He's been so close to his defining world level fight many times only for fights to fall apart, guys pulling out etc. His career always seems to have stalled just as its been building momentum. Not sure if its been promoter issues or what.

Anyway, shame if he was robbed, this would have been his ticket to the big leagues.

Great fight, I think I had Macklin up by only one round so I can't really say it was a robbery. However, Sturm did look the better fighter...by FAR, but goddamit, that's some true guts and spirit by Macklin. Makes me proud to be a Brummie...sniff.....

Black,

Did they show it on Sky Sports in the UK? Or did you watch it online?

Jack, it was live on Sky straight after Kell Brooks win over N'dou. Solid performance from Brook btw but I can't quite see him beating the elite.

Macklin can hold his head high. Terrific effort and would have got the nod anywhere other than Germany. The Spanish judge should be banned. Outrageous card.

2 of those judges had 116-112 didn't they? Bottom line, while it was some home cooking but really I think most of it was Macklin didn't get credit for all those rights to the body...he threw @ least 1 it it seemed every combo...Sturm's side was really red and I bet hurts this morning!
