Re: Boxing Thread

I think it's time to start seriously considering Carl Frampton as one of the pound for pound best boxers on the planet. He keeps on impressing and defying the odds.

I think he needs a couple of convincing wins before he is regarded as one of the best p4p boxers. He won the Quigg fight more to Quiggs lack of activity than anything else. He was not particularly impressive that night. The Santa Cruz fight could have gone either way but Carl was outstanding i must admit. A rematch is surely on the cards. If it is anything like Saturdays bout we are in for another treat

He never competed in the olympics, he's not popular in Belfast, he's not popular in the UK, doesnt accept any national anthem to be played at his title fights. So he has a couple of things working against him, but it could happen, but it will take time to build a reputation with him.

I am totally fine with that. National Anthems being sung before big boxing fights have always annoyed the hell out of me. Most of the time these guys are mercenaries just looking for a payday not patriots fighting for their country.

All the points you brought up really have no bearings on P4P discussions though. It's about overall talent and achievements, not popularity.

Re: Boxing Thread

Props to Frampton for the win, I had it a lot closer than a couple of the judges had it, I'd definitely like to see a rematch, but his outright ducking of Rigondeaux is not good in my opinion.

Carls a good fighter but its an out and out duck what hes doing regarding Rigo. He reckons there is no money in the bout, while that is true, where was the money in the Gonalez Jr and Avalos fights? Hes not even saying to Rigo if you move up I'll fight ya, its just a duck. Not taking anything away from him but this duck is shameful

Re: Boxing Thread

When the hell did Tyson Fury get popped for doping and why have I only just heard about this?

BTW looks like Miguel Cotto vs. Juan Manuel Marquez is dead in the water. They couldn't reach an agreement over weight

Not yet but apparently Tyson's in hot water with the UK doping agency. He was banned temporarily but that has now been lifted for some reason.
