Here's a guy with solid tools as a fighter, but can he still make noise in the game?

Pending if he can knockout his next opponent as promised, who can he fight?

I would love to see him in there with Canelo

I read an article on him earlier but I cant remember if he had an opponent lined up or not. He definitely makes for good action but its just hard to see him performing better than he did with ann at his corner.

I agree. She brings out the animal in him. Problem is.... Much like Cotto, he can't deal with the type of punishment he dishes out.

Nah, it's over. He and Andre Dirrell had time to make noise and be something special but that time is passed. What a bunch of bullshit too because they're potential has been wasted. I don't care if Ann Wolfe was in his corner, he's never going anywhere. He can't be saved from himself, in the ring if you can take his power then you can beat him, outside the ring it's a 50/50 chance of him ending back up in prison. The next L he takes and it's a wrap

Well I've seen this tapia kid on fnf. The guy is strong and showed a good chin, he's also well polished (had like 120-5 record in the ams or something like that). But his conditioning was shit

But from what I remember kirkland is blind to straight punches, if this kid can take his power early we may see ishida-kirkland all over again.

I need to see him lose to Tapia to give up on him, I'm picking Kirkland but we'll see.

Doesn't have the chin for it. Move on Kirkland, this layoff can't be good for him.

He may very well win this fight but he's a career fuck up. I will watch him fight but I have no faith that he will actually be a champ or stay out of jail. The way he fights he's going to run into someone again like Molina whose not stationary and who can take his power and they're going to box is ears off. Or he'd going to fight someone who has pop too and he'll be staring up at the lights

Not even sure where Kirkland stands at this point...

He ruined his own career with the jail sentence, came back and got KO'd by Ishida (after running through a few bums to shake the rust off), bounced back with the Angulo win, got exposed to no ends in the Molina fight, then comes this long layoff.

At this point, I'm not sure. If he had a better chin, then I would give him a big shot at making it big (for the eleven hundreth time, lol), but that isn't the case here. He's good when he's punching, but as soon as somebody stands up to him, he reminds me of why I shouldn't bet on him. It reminds me of those big shots in big meetings, who are good at talking, until somebody asks them a question...then comes the crickets.

I dont wanna give up on the guy, but Im not putting too much stock into what he does from this point on...same with Dirrell.

Why would anyone want to joint 50s shady ass and his stable of misfits and outcasts is beyond me.

Lots of entertaining fights for Kirkland, as long as he keeps his head on straight and listens to a good team. Not too many of Kirkland fights go the distance either way. He has some serious punching power and a shaky chin at 154.

Fight K9 Bundrage for the title of Get the Fuck outta My Face! Loser goes to Get the Fuck Outta My Face ville. Winner helps him pack and rides shot gun.

Seriously though, they need to have a tournament of disappointments. Berto, Khan, Kirkland, Ortiz. Like one big bitchass Battle Royale lol

Canelo, Trout or Lara. Pick one. Love to see James training and in the ring. Too much idle time is detrimental to his style of fighting.

Noooo... i hate the red sox!!

Kirkland needs to talk to Ilyana Van Zant or whatever that lady's name is. Kirkland is a great talent but dude has mad issues. I mean issues. Maybe Mike Tyson can be a help to him. Crazy people understand each other.

Because he is crazy and well 50 is a popular name so why not. If Kirkland looks decent in his next fight look for a Mayweather challenge from 50 and Kirkland.

Woe, I thought you said you weren't a "west coast yankees" fan?

Man you just took a big L in my book

The only decent fans from cali in regards to baseball are probably the As fans. All the other fans usually just jump ship to the next cali team that make it far, I can't stand that bro.

Fuck it might as well throw Allan green in there and make it a three way

I'm sorry but Kirkland is just a bum with hard punches. I predict the next fighter that he cant bully KOs him. I actually think Ortiz would stop Kirkland.

Man, Green done killed his career anyway. He didn't make weight last week for his fight and that's supposed to be the 2nd or 3rd time in as many fights he didn't make weight. He was fighting at LHW but weighed in at 180+ I think

At this point, that fight would play out like Arreola vs Mitchell.

Just read that Kirkland is supposedly going back to train with Wolfe. This dude is a character man lol. Didn't he say she slipped him something to make him fight the way he did against Molina? She is the only one who can get that dude right but regardless it's make or break time for him

If that's what he's going to do, and she takes him back. I seriously hope it works out this time because James seems to wanna blame his short comings in the ring on the trainer. If he's going to make a serious run and I believe this is his final run then she's the perfect trainer for him

He's hittin that. Or maybe her butch ass is smashin him lol That's the only time in which you return to the same woman over and over like that lmao

You do mean hard on?

Anne Wolf is the only chic that I would not fuck with. That woman scares me. I think Kirkland needs a no none sense type of trainer. I think she is just right for him. I wonder, does she anally rape him?
