Honestly,

I don't have much interest in this card, and will probably only watch the replay if something unexpected happens. Jermaine has suffered two career-ending type KO's and I don't think should be fighting anymore. Direll is a little more understandable with his comeback. The card might tell us if these guys are mentally and physically ready to continue their careers.

However, this is the kind of card that is designed to make them look good against an unknown. The unknowns will probably need a KO to win anyway, and all the pre-fight hype will be on how "great" these guys used to be. If this was an HBO fight. Lampley would be shaking the pom-poms full force.

I would still like to see matches with a little bit of doubt as to who is going to win, and am opposed to fights going in that can be perceived as mismatches. I mean, can we expect anything less than at the very least, a wide UD for the pom-pom guys? In Showbox's defense, they usually match up guys pretty evenly. Is this nothing more than to do what they can to make Jermain and Andre look good? ESPN material?

If they look like shit against these opponents, they almost have to call it a career. At least that's what it looks like on paper. Not too many fighters get serious threats their first fights back after such a long-layoff unless their health shows by struggling with a first fight back, they shouldn't come back in the first place.

If both win as expected, are either or both Andre and Jermain going to turn into another Jones or Holyfield who don't know when to stop fighting?

I'm interested in seeing how Andre D. looks, but not Taylor. Taylor's moment has passed him by. Hopefully nobody gets hurt too badly.

Update: Wow, it works fine for the Showtime fight, but doesn't work for the UFC fight. Aint that a fat bitch???

Johnson is actin' like a little biotch no2.gif Conditioning is a bitch if you aren't mentally and physically prepared. He doesn't wanna continue...

This is a 1st grade recess fight laugh.gif Johnson looks like the guy that picked the fight, but totally shit his pants when the victim put up a fight!

Cunningham definitely is a joke. Brings shame to bums around the world.

Cunningham is a soft trick!

Nowwwww...the towel is being waved for real this time. Dirrell by stoppage in the 2nd round. Now, Dirrell needs to stay sharp for more elite opposition...

Its hard to say that Taylor look sharp tonight. We all know the real story...
Cshel86
Wow, Taylor got caught with a big overhand right by the guy in the ugly leopard trunks. Well, the guy's wrist actually landed more than his fist.
Box in Hand
Ok UFC is over and I am watching the same ole Taylor. He is using his jab more but God he is still flat footed and front foot heavy and still carries his front hand low.
Cshel86
What in tha hell was that Jermain???
Box in Hand
Worst stoppage in human history. I have seen nothing new in Taylor.

Did Taylor's trainer just call the other guy a "birdhead"? laugh.gif

Taylor sucks ass...though he won tonight, I wouldn't be ready to see him fight again. Now the loser mouths off after the fight is called off by the ref laugh.gif

LOL!! Taylor lost? Oh sorry. Misread your post C-Shel! LOL! Sounds like the ref stopped it for nothing.

While it was a very, very shitty stoppage, Nicklow was getting beaten up. Same here, didn't see anything from Taylor that makes me think that he should be boxing again. Dirrell on the other hand, definitely would like to see who he fights next.

Nah, you're good. I actually edited it because the stoppage ended up happening right before I posted it. I was about to say, "even IF Taylor won tonight"...but when the stoppage occurred. Again, Taylor still sucks ass laugh.gif

2 shots from Taylor and the ref stopped the fight. Taylor's opponent wasn't in the fight and got beat up but the stoppage was premature.

Dirrell should've taken his time...at least gave it a couple more rounds. He still looked sharp though...
wolterb
^ i thought dirrell looked alright too...probably could have faced a better opponent but whatever. the taylor fight was anti climactic with an early stoppage like already said. pretty disappointing

Good to see taylor back. I hope he takes his time coming back. This fight was against a shaved Umpa Lumpa. I dont expect to see him in there with any real competition for at least his first 5 fights. I just have the feeling that someone will be all to quick to try to throw him in with Martinez. Although somewhere down the line i wouldnt mind seeing Taylor vs Paul Williams.
