Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Marquez 4

It has been quite some time since I’ve watched a boxing match. If I remember correctly, the straw that broke the camels back was the Pacquiao vs Bradley fight on June 9, 2012, where Manny lost the fight and his WBO Welterweight belt. It was a shameful outcome and confirmed my dislike of what was happening in the world of Read more…

GSP Retains His Championship Belt

After a 19 month layoff from the octagon, Georges St-Pierre took on a challenger with a great amount heart; Carlos Condit.  The card fight as a whole was ok, with the co-main and main events highlighting the night, as it should be.  The co-main event featured Johny Hendricks, introducing Martin Kampmann to a left-hook that puts people to sleep.  Kampmann Read more…

This Is It! – UFC 100

July 11th, 2009 is a major date in the mixed martial arts world, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship 100 will unfold. I started watching the UFC from the first event on  November 12, 1993 and became an instant fan.  It was raw and brutal violence back then, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and submission fighting, dominated the earlier events. I can still Read more…

Machida KO's Evans

Machida KO’s Evans at UFC 98

Lyoto Machida made Rashad Evans pay dearly for his slow-start tendencies. Lyoto’s Karate background, stance and skills continue to make him a difficult opponent to deal with, as his 14-0-0 record shows.  It only took 2 rounds for Machida to breakdown Rashad Evans with his fantastic accuracy and quick strikes.  They say speed kills, but all of the speed that Read more…

Pacquiao KO's Hatten

Pound-for-Pound Pacquiao KO’s Hatton

One of the many "rights" Manny Pacquiao delivered to the face of Ricky Hatton on May 2, 2009.  Manny Pacquiao was the favorite in this light welter-weight fight since he dismantled Oscar De-La Hoya in a previous bout.  Pacquiao has certainly become a ring tactician, with speed, power and overall ring generalship and control of his opponents.  But not many Read more…

UFC 97 – Slow Beatdowns

I’ve been MIA this month, with way too many things going on, but I am still alive. I’m back with an entry about the UFC card that went down last weekend in my birth town of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  UFC 97 didn’t really have a lot of fights that I was interested to see.  As you know I’m not a Read more…

Fantasy Fishing Round Two!

The first round is over and the leader of the pack is Terry Moberly, of Kentucky with 12,744 points.  Sadly, that’s not me holding the $100,000 cheque.  I’m following closely behind with a heavy 6,079 points, putting me in position 1,970. Not so good, I know.  But it’s only 1 competition down and many to go, so I’ll make my Read more…

A vacation from the fight game.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve written about anything in the fight world.  And it’s not because there have not been things to discuss.  I really took a break from the fight scene because all of my favorite fighters were getting beat up and beat up badly. It all started with Seth Petruzeli filling in for an injured Ken Read more…

Sam Mitchell Fired

Sam Mitchell, coach of the year… FIRED!

That’s right Sam, that’s the way out. As I figured, Sam Mitchell was fired from his position of Head Coach of the Toronto Raptors.  It’s no surprise to me that he was let go… I mean with troubled financial times and all. Like I mentioned in my previous post on this subject, it always comes down to the coach, when Read more…

General Hopkins vs. Private Pavlik

To all of the naysayers, I hope you watched the fight between 43 year old Bernard Hopkins and 26 year old Kelly Pavlik.  It was truly a lesson in boxing skills and ring generalship.  Although Hopkins dominated the middleweight division for so many years the critics really counted him out in this fight.  He was too old, too slow and Read more…

Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock

Really looking forward to this fight, although Ken Shamrock is a little bit old for this fight game right now.  I just hope he has a better showing than the his last fight against Robert Berry at Cage Rage 25, where Ken suffered an embarassing knockout.  I liked Ken in the old days when he battled Royce Gracie, when the Read more…

Evan Tanner: RIP to a Warrior.

Evan Tanner is definitely not someone I would want to meet in the UFC octagon. He had heart and a never say die mentality and drive that I only see in 2 other fighters: Randy Couture and Forrest Griffin. It was very sad news to hear that Mr. Tanner; born on February 11th, 1971, passed away on September 8th, 2008. Read more…

Rashad Evans says: "Good-night Chuck!"

I have never been a fan of Chuck Liddell’s as I really never thought he was that good of a fighter. Although I really enjoyed when he knocked the hell out of Tito Ortiz, a guy I really don’t like. But on September 6th, I picked the upset by Rashad “Sugar” Evans to not only win the fight against Liddell, Read more…

Don’t blame Sam for the Raptors mess.

I am so tired of hearing people that know little to nothing about basketball, trying to blame coaches for a teams shortcomings. I primarily blame the media for this. Because in game 2 of the Raptors vs Magic series: had Chris Bosh made that last second jumper and won the game, there would have been a whole different type of Read more…
