Admin Note/Update:

This Signature Bet Thread is a wonderful idea! Three updates we will put in place:
  • The thread will be pinned up for easy access for the fights! Thanks to everyone's ideas for this thread!
  • We will be required to close the thread, no later than one half hour before fight time. (Or the start of a PPV countdown show.) Users should than post in the on-going round by round spoiler thread goes up for any fight. This is to prevent Fight Spoilers in this thread.
  • We will re-open this thread after the weekend has passed. If this thread is not opened back up by say Monday Night, send me or one of the mods a PM to open it. That would be Cshell, Mgrover, or Max Payne.
Thanks to all for their participation and help!

*********************


Ok, so let me explain. I got an idea to create a sig bet standing that would tally up Right and Wrong (W) prediction through each sig bet forum created until years end. It was more-so to be apart of this annual FIGHTHYPE forum year end award that we do here, and it would be for recognition/bragging rights of who the better fight predictor is for the year. Then I figured, I'd add to it, so that more people's names on here would be involved to make things even more interesting.

So instead of just "Sig Bet's", each saturday night event starting March 1, I will take down each prediction made before the fights start (undercard included). There will be three columns for use. The 1st column will be tallied for the Right predictions. The 2nd column will be tallied for the Wrong (W) predictions. The 3rd column will be tallied for the "Sig Bet" (SB) predictions.

Here's how it will look:
Prediction Standings
Right=R, Wrong=W, Sig Bet (winner)=SB

(R0-W0-SB0)




LEAGUE RULES

1. You will gain +1 if your chosen fighter is concluded the winner WITHOUT predicting how the fight would result (split decision, unanimous decision, majority decision, KO/TKO, Draw, No Contest).

2. You will gain +2 if your chosen fighter is concluded the winner ALONG WITH predicting how the fight would result (split decision, unanimous decision, majority decision, KO/TKO, Draw, No Contest).

SIG BET/LEAGUE RULES

Losers not only take a "L" in the Prediction Standings, but the losers also have to sport an embarrassing signature/profile pic chosen by the "winners circle" for as long as a 3 week (minimum) period. The WINNERS have the opprotunity of gaining +2 points in there win column if there chosen pick is right WITHOUT predicting how the fight would result, and +3 points if there chosen pick is right ALONG WITH predicting how the fight would result.

So for the winners, here's how it'll look if your chosen pick is right WITHOUT a predicted result: (R1-W0-SB1) +2 points

If your chosen pick is right ALONG WITH a predicted result, it will look like this: (R2-W0-SB1) +3 points





ANYONE WHO SHARES A PREDICTION ON THE ACTUAL FIGHTS PREVIEW/POST, THAT NAME WILL BE ADDED AND TALLIED ONTO THE STANDINGS LIST. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE ON THE LIST, SIMPLY, LET IT BE KNOWN. ANYONE CAN JOIN.

sounds like a good idea

im down. you gotta keep control of all this shit then. You gotta call the fights and make sure to add them in. I say just pick fights on the major ones, like showtime and HBo and PPV, no fnf or shobox. Were gona have enuff boxing with just mainstream networks we dont need all that other shit.

Only one I'll probably disagree with here is Canelo-Angulo. Don't get me wrong, Angulo has a heck of a shot at an upset but I don't think it's a 50/50 shot.

I don't know...Canelo has his hands full with Angulo in March. I think the upset of the year would be Danny getting stopped by Herrera...which could actually happen. Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE Swift fan, but Herrera is a tough customer.

Puerto Rico is one of those countries where the weirdest things happens to fighters...whether they're the hometown fighter or not (ala Lopez/Salido 1 and 2).

I agree too that Canelo is in for a tough fight, but it's still one that I see why Canelo will be favorited. Not just because of his popularity and being GBP future "golden goose", but because he has more than on tool that he can utilize if the other is not working if he's intelligent enough, where-as with Angulo, he's mainly an all pressure type clubber. This can sort of draw comparisons to Broner-Maidana I'll admit, but I would like to believe Canelo's a much more focused fighter.

I had the same feeling writing in your post about the Garcia-Herrera fight too, and yes, strange things do happen when fighting in PR. I say it's those damn women down there lol, but maybe we can make an arguement there maybe something in the air that so often in the past gave these upsets. We'll see how Danny handles the pressure of being the main guy we came to see.

I gave this question some thought and yes, if you predict the EXACT outcome of the rounds KO/TKO, no contest or draw, then you earn an extra point in the "R" column.

AGAIN, ALL PREDICTIONS WIIL BE NOTED BEFORE THE START OF THE FIGHT.

i got santa cruz and angulo for saturday.

my advice to the OP would be to allow us to attempt to garner the extra point by outcome (UD, SD, D, KO, TKO)

trying to guess the round? too much of a crapshoot

Where do I stand in this thread??? I may have to go back and check my predictions in the round by round threads. I don't wanna miss out on the action here. A silly gut feeling of mine, wants to sig bet on the Broner/Molina fight. Chi was trying to educate me on Broner's chances of winning (if he's 100% focused), but again, my gut is telling me that Adrien gets stretched. cool.gif

Chelly don't like pressure lol.

I don't see why so many don't want their picks public unless its a sure fire thing the Guy they picking gonna win....live a little! I know nobody wants to be that Guy that made a horrible pick so they can say what a horrible pick someone else made a talk about how they don't know shit about boxing

no doubt Gambit and good call AZ, nobody will get every pick right and this is boxing anything can happen (like CJ Ross, Laurence Cole, Abril-Rios etc)... we did one of these back in the ESPN forum pre robust days and I called Ward vs Dirrell super 6 final with Ward winning when everybody rode the chalk Kessler vs Abe finale like Fat Dan and his minion

good to see you have all your picks under your comments at 5-3 instead of the 4-0 standings, shows character

as for my boxing picks, unfortunately in High School when everybody and their mother loved everything Tyson, I always took the odds against him to the tune of Bonecrusher, Berbick, Tucker, Pinklon, Bruno, Razor, Bruno, Razor loss loss loss and didn't take Buster or Evander still (smh)

I don't always go for the under dawg but I will if hes shown he shouldn't be counted out by such a margin ...robberies are common along with BS stoppages and upsets(2013 anyone?) All I'm saying is have faith in your fightgame knowledge and homework. Don't be a tool. And don't disappear from the thread when your boy gets mauled lol .....lick your wounds and we'll respect your honest pre and post fight assessment.

Wow! I really didn't expect this many folks to be riding with Angulo. I mean, I know he's got a shot, but I'd say a 60-40 shot. A 50-50 shot was when Perro was suppose to take out Kirkland in that 1st round to set up the fight with Canelo back then, or when he was suppose to follow up taking out Lara months back and here we are now. I guess my point is when the lights shine bright enough Angulo brings it, yet it's never enough. I still say he's to slow and sluggish to easily be countered by quick compact punches that Canelo dishes out, but I guess we shall see tonight.

if he can tag a guy like Lara, and cut off the ring well, with a guy who moves abut as much as Lara, I think he can do damage to Canelo

Yo Gambito, put me down for:

*Garcia by UD, after hitting the desk (like AZ, I like to live dangerously...from time to time)

*De Leon...regardless of what Lopez did to him years ago, Lopez has gotten the shit end of the stick in life PERIOD, since then...Ponce has been in better fights since then, and may have learned a thing or two.

*Scott- fuck Wilder...tired of that dude. I expect Malik to back him up the whole time with his jab...that's the least he can do. I think he gets taken into deep waters, and struggles to stay afloat. Scott must make his move, and make it EARLY. Did I already say, fuck Wilder? Lol

I'm going with Danny, Wilder, and I haven't decided who I'm going with in the Ponce-Juanma fight. I'm not even confident in Deontay beating Malik because Malik got skills but I saw something's Chisora did to him that makes me believe that Deontay can fair even better then Chisora did against him. The Ponce-Lopez fight is a toss up IMO. Lopez is shop worn but Ponce isn't spring time fresh either
