Re: Boxing Thread

To be honest I won't remember Jacobs vs Canelo come end of the year talk when we discuss fight of the year. If I didn't love Boxing so much I would of went to Bed 5 or 6 Rounds in. Jacobs didn't want to take risks and he just stood there like a Stump and Canelo all he had to do is giving him a shot here and there and Jacobs didn't know what to do. Jacobs Second Half fought better and found some shots late, but by the 8th or 9th Round by that point I felt he was ways away from winning and wasn't going to get a KO on Canelo.

Legendary boxing judge, HBO personality Harold Lederman dies at 79 after battle with cancer

Less than six months after working the final card on HBO to cap the premium cable network's 40-year run in boxing, longtime unofficial scorekeeper Harold Lederman lost his lengthy battle with cancer at 79.

Lederman, a respected judge who was inducted to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2016, died on Saturday morning. HBO confirmed Lederman's passing following a tweet from former network executive and veteran promoter Lou DiBella.

Beloved for his honest analysis and jubilant personality, both inside and out of the ring, Lederman worked his first HBO card in 1986 as an analyst and evolved into his longtime role as unofficial scorekeeper long before he retired from judging in 1999.

"Harold Lederman had a lifelong love affair with the sport of boxing," HBO Sports executive vice president Peter Nelson said in a statement. "Over the past 50 years, he was universally respected and celebrated by the many people who make the sport what it is. Harold was happiest when seated ringside, studying the action and scoring the fight.

"When he joined HBO Sports in 1986, he added a new and critical component to live boxing coverage. Viewers embraced his unique style and his command of the rules while his broadcast colleagues relished his enthusiasm and boundless energy."

Lederman's voice became as instantly identifiable as any in all of boxing throughout his career, thanks in part to his unique delivery which typically began with letting out an excited laugh before exclaiming some variation of, "OK Jim! I gotta tell you something," in the direction of blow-by-blow commentator Jim Lampley.

A major reason for Lederman's sustained success as a broadcaster was how genuinely passionate he was for the sport. A native of the Bronx, New York, Lederman settled in nearby Rockland County and could be found most weekends as an approachable diehard fan attending boxing cards big and small all over the northeast.

Lederman earned his judging license from the New York State Athletic Commission to judge title fights in 1967. A graduate of Columbia University, he went on to work over 100 title bouts all over the world while maintaining his full-time day job as a pharmacist in New York.

"He was an historian and walking rulebook," Nelson said. "He always had time for you whether you were a heavyweight champion or just a spectator looking to say hello. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Eileen and daughters Julie and Iris. There isn't a person in the sport who won't miss our Harold Lederman."

From the standpoint of bringing personality and charisma to the job of scorekeeper and rules official, Lederman may end up going down as the very best to do it in boxing. He played a big role during HBO's glory years in the 1990s working on legendary broadcast teams alongside the likes of Lampley, Jones, Larry Merchant George Foreman and Emanuel Steward. He also stayed working with the network until the very end as HBO made a shocking decision late last year to cease coverage of the sport.

Lederman, who was awarded the "Good Guy Award" by the Boxing Writers Association of America in 2006, passed on his love of boxing to his daughter Julie who remains active today as one of the top judges in the sport.
Jim Lampley's reaction.

Quote:
It was one of the greatest privileges of my broadcasting career to work with Harold Lederman, whose unique humanity and lifelong love of boxing brought joy to the hearts of millions of fans, show after show after show. They waited for his moments, they were thrilled by his insights, they gloried in imitating his voice. No one in the sport had more friends, because no one in the sport was more deserving of friends. As deeply saddened as I am by his passing, I am equally deeply joyful that he made it to the final bell on December 8. Nothing was more important to the legacy of HBO Boxing, so in that we can all take solace. Now his scorecard is complete.


Really sorry to hear this. Always liked hearing Harold on broadcasts. His love for the sport was always evident on the broadcasts.

RIP Harold

Re: Boxing Thread

Really sad about Lederman, thats an iconic part of the sport gone. Sigh. RIP.


Several really good fights over the weekend. Hurd/Williams, Berchelt/Vargas and Dogboe/Navarette were all entertaining. I thought Williams looked great. And over in the UK there was a smallish UK card with Jordan Gill shitting the bed massively against a Mexican dude brought in to lose, Gill was dropped multiple times and eventually his corner pulled him out between rounds. After the fight Gill pretty much said he lost because he had the shits lol. Its always satisfying seeing the underdog come to someones backyard and throw a spanner in the works.

Re: Boxing Thread



^ didn't know Atlas having his own podcast. I don't see Canelo as a great too. Extremely talented and has one of the, if not the best active resume on paper. However, almost all of his key and career defining (even even lesser ones too) victories are sullied. There are many boxing greats who had their own share of controversial decisions but not as much and often as him. For me he is not a true boxing great and he won't be with this much protection going forward.

Re: Boxing Thread

Dont wanna jinx it but Wilder/Breazele has all the ingredients to be short, wild and violent. Wilder should win but hes probably going to get forced into a dangerous firefight to do it. Cant see him being able to comfortably pick Breazele off at a distance. Of course this is all assuming we dont see some weird fuckery ie Breazele taking a dive in the first round to make Wilder look better than AJ. At this point nothing would surprise me.


Then theres also the Taylor/Baranchyk and Inoue/Rodriguez double bill which should be great, and BJS back in action against what should be a badly outmatched Shefat Isufi.

Based on what hes done so far I think he will probably go down as a great for a few reasons. Hes been the biggest star in the sport post-Floyd, hes got the Mexican following, and his record is strong on paper. But yeah, hes had some close, contentious fights, hes been popped for PEDs and he'd lose to all of the fab 4.

That said, unless the mileage has taken more of a toll than we realize hes probably got 3-4 elite level years left in him, maybe more. Hopefully we get the BJS fight in the next 12 months which is a very legit fight. I'd give him MAJOR props if he had the balls to fight Callum Smith too, thats a huge risk that would add significantly to his legacy if he won.
