Naw, Shelly, that wasn't it....it referenced the Shoney's thread in there, but wasn't the actual thread.

Here it is...I edited the post, probably after you read it.

To my surprise, we talked about that shit more than once, but this is the official thread. lol

My bad.

Great night of boxing...we got some technical rounds, rough rounds, dirty rounds, and a bunch of airtime from Floyd while Showtime does their pimp walk after the new deal.

Nice mash-up...kinda reminds me of an after-the-club morning at a Shoney's buffet.



Ahhhh. Memories of Shoney's late at night...


Mosely can get a belt at 154. He can beat Smith. Someone also mentioned Cotto... Yup, him too. Shit a guy like Bradley may be able to move up and pitter pat Smith to a decision. Pacquiao too... Ishe is suddenly a wanted man with crosshairs on his chest. Kudos to him for gutting it out. I'm happy for him and hope he makes the most of his title. He has always had potetntial. maybe the title will change some things in him...

Man Chi and Noles are putting it all out there tonight, lol. Just another day in the office for us...especially the creep posts about a fighter's significant other. Hell, K-9's chick DOES need to be consoled in this time of career disaster for her husband...one at a time...me first. laugh.gif

Evenly matched good, but sloppy fight! It's like both of them had these little 10-15 punch hard shot spurts and each gassed and waited to reload. First fight was better, but I think those scorecards were pre-filled out against Findley like that. Ref was Sam Williams. (Bundrange-Smith.) He has done fights in Michigan for awhile. Frank Garza is the other big name for Michigan fight refs. I had it 7-4-1 for Smith. Or maybe 8-3-1, scored in my head. (Made the first round even cuz of the point deduction.)

Smith vs. Corey Spinks? "Battle of the Criers" "When it Rains....It Pours!" LOL! That could be the tag for that fight! hahahaha!

I know I am late with my response...late night

Showtime: Loved the energy from the announcers it seemed like everyone was hyped and excited to be there. When they called the fights they actually sounded like fans and not critics of the fighters. The energy was so much different than HBO. Watching HBO is like listening to three Simon Cowells. I always enjoy the Magic Man's commentary. Joe Cortez was even interesting. Good show from Showtime


Mayweather: Loved how he hyped up his fighters. He talked more about his fighters than he did his own fight. I did appreciate that. I have no idea what kind of instruction he was giving Love but it seemed to work. I really hope Roger gets better. It was also cool how he said his dad, Roger and Jeff would all be in his corner, outstanding! He showed maturity, he didn't have a lot of bling on he just looked like a fan of the sport a promoter trying to build his fighters. This is the Floyd I love listening to and watching.

J Love: Finely pressured this guy and used some dirty tactics but he kept his cool and stayed with the game plan. I was actually thinking this is how the Guerrero Mayweather fight may look. Love showed discipline and poise in the ring. I think he needs to work on his ring generalship a little more but he had a hard test and he passed. I want to see him stay active and improve all around, he has a nice future, he will get better. Loved the support that his family and fans gave.

Ishe Smith: He stayed focused and never got flustered. He keep pounding away looking for his shots and started landing them at the right time. I did at times think he could of cut the ring off and fight in the middle of the ring more. He finally used his jab to set up his offense. Loved the post interview after the fight. Yes he cried and nearly killed his son but I understand, the moment was a lot and he had been through hell and back. I so appreciate seeing things like that. He will continue to improve good fight and congrats Las Vegas for having your first champ. He gave a shout out to Vernon Forrest and Chico, I thought that was great.

K9: WTF! You are losing a fight but you chose to talk crap in the middle of getting your butt whipped? Then he was jumping all over the place swinging out of control just a terrible way to fight. Terrible. He should had fought a smarter fight instead of jumping around. I think he gassed out toward the end from all that jumping around and wild swinging.

Great night for boxing!

To be honest, I fell asleep in the middle of the K9 Ishe fight. Woke up for the last few rounds. I am going to have to look at it again on the DVR, but that was horrible. Even though they started to engage more, K9 was looping and lunging and Ishe would not let his right hand go and punish him for it. Fight could have been over a lot sooner if he had done so. I just dont see Ishe holding that belt very long if he is going to be that timid in the ring. Hell, if I am Canelo, Ishe is on my radar to pick up a belt is he doesnt get the September date with Floyd.

Good call! The Showtime crew, more professional than HBO. We still had two ordinaries for a title which made the fight good, but sloppy. I don't neither are good enough to be world champions, but such as the state with four federation belts, Smith got something. I don't think he is gonna hold the title very long. I scored in my head, and like I said, I think I had it 7-4-1 or maybe 8-3-1, which was close to the judges. (Well, two if of them.) I liked how the commentators had different and diverse scorecards instead of the commentator and color guy, Teddy, "I know I know everything" (NOT!) and Joe "Testicle!"

Commentators in giving their scores SHOULD disagree from time to time. It makes watching the experiance more interesting. Especially when they don't swing from the nuts of Jim Lamply and PUNCHSTAT. What was cool is that they used the statistical profile at the end of the fight as a tool to show how each fighter did, but they didn't do an HBO thing and make love to the software!

Jack

PS. Who's a better crier? Corey "Stinks" or Smith?

Both of these guys are bullies, in their own respective ways. I like Ishe in this one, he's shown a lot of poise over the past year or so, and he's more disciplined at this point of his career.

It's something about K-9 when he fights nowadays, it's almost like he's thinking of the next big opponent (that he'll never get) while he's across the ring from his present challenge. I know that he always goes for the knockout, but he seems to be serially pissing his way through fight s nowadays....that could play into his demise tonight.

Maybe it's father time first, then the possibility of not getting those big fights, that actually drives him to fight the way he does nowadays. It's almost like he's thinking, "Okay, this is my last shot. If I don't win, then I'm out of the rat race for good". He's always been a "go for the KO" fighter, but he was more poised back then.

I guess this fight will come down to patience and timing, and with that in mind, I'll give it to Ishe by decision, or MAYBE he catches K-9 coming in (somewhere around the 7th). Both guys know how to make it a dog fight, but K-9 gets gassed waaaay too quick, and Ishe still has the tendency to get hit with unnecessary shots...gladly, those shots came from guys who couldn't punch.

Ishe keeps the intelligent pressure on him, closes the distance, and possibly stops K-9 based on K-9 wearing himself out and not seeing a punch coming.

PS: I wonder if Ishe will go to the body.


good call.

True, he fighting like an amateur. Muhammad gave him good advice, the body language and the things K9 is doing in there suggest that he don't want to go on. He can't fight if it's not going his way which is a street brawl. He talking trash to Ishe trying to get him out of his game but it doesn't appear to be working


i have to give it up to bundrage...he kept ishe guessing and his awkward style is actually effective. EMM was right.

K9 gon get fed to somebody from GB, and he might get tossed around like a $2 hoe before they're done with him. If I'm Ishe's handlers I make him fight mandatories. The IBF has some solid fighters he can beat and ultimately lose to but in no way am I putting him in there with Cotto or those other big names until it's time to cash out


i heard molina is next. if that's the case....his reign may be up soon.

showtime has been running shit for the last few years imo. hbo sucks ass these days with their arrogant and pompous ways. sure hbo has the better quality when it comes to how their show looks...but that's where it ends. showtime usually has more evenly matched bouts and their commentary is head and shoulders above hbo.

Your right Professor, he did an interview today saying that he wants Molina next. He said he's going to tell Ellerbe to reach out to Molina's team and see if they can make the fight happen. I guess we should brace ourselves for Alexander's shadow boxing regimen lol

molina is a tricky/cagey dude. i'm waiting to see how ishe adjusts to him. i think it'll be easy to find sparring for molina with guys that fight like ishe in the chi. it won't be easy for ishe to find guys like molina to spar with.

Agreed.

On the other hand, I'm glad that "ruthless toothless" K-9 is no longer champion. Holding that belt for as long as he did, must have felt like he won an Oscar or somethin'.

I don't care to cry like that either...I believe it destroys your sperm count and emasculates you. Lol

When you cry like that, you truly hit rock bottom. In Ishe's case, he's been there and now he's champ...cant knock him for that. That cry was still bad though! laugh.gif

It's like his breath and pride took a quick vacation during that interview!

I can understand why he did cry though, he's been through a lot. I'm just glad that he was able to win a title, now what he does with this opportunity is up to him now.
