Yah the stoppage became a much better decision especially after you hear Quillin slur at the post fight interview. I could see it looking like a bad stoppage live but if you were right there with the ref and saw what he did up close, I see why he did it.


Wilder actually wants to fight those two, it's probably about them taking that fight. When Klitchko signed up to do fight in the US again, I thought it was pretty much a build up between the two. Wilder just needs a few more fights to defend his title but he will eventually get there. I don't think he is scared if fighting anyone.

Canelo vs Khan on May 7 at 155.


RIP Khan? Khan never fought above 147 iirc and Canelo will probably come fight night at 165-170.

Anything can happen in boxing but I think Canelo puts Khan to sleep. Khan always seems to have some excuse, he can't make 140, 147 and now he's moving up another class. He got rocked by Chris Algeri, imagine if Canelo connects?

For sure anything could happen but Khan is just going to be giving up his advantage like his speed by coming in the ring much heavier and a weight he has never been in the ring with.

And yeah, Algieri had him dazed a bit so it's hard to imagine this not ending with a KO. Khan is prone to being countered too, which is in Canelos wheelhouse.

yeah seems like a bit of a mismatch tbh.

manny shares religious quote that states people should be killed for having homosexual relationships




He done annihilate 99% of his fanbase.

All clowning aside I'm divided. On one end I'm happy to see him finally speak up instead of mindlessly keeping it shut 24/7.

It'll be interesting to see how things play out. Some social justice warrior types (please beat up Floyd because he hit a woman) were on his train right before Floyd deranged his brain. But now manny has hit an area sjws are extremely sensitive about.

Nike has already dropped him like Marquez did. Fortunately, Reebok not Nike makes the best boxing shoes.

Some of my flip friends were upset that Nike dropped Manny and think that adidas or UA will pick him up. I understand that he's a hero to the Philippines but there's no way adidas or UA will pick him up. His comments were pretty bad.

Good thing manny is at the twilight of his career. HIs time horizon for endorsements was coming to an end.

Let hope the homos don't come out full force and get the Vegas venue to boycott his next fight. Knowing manny he'll get a slap on the wrist like always.

1. How about you cut out the homophobia.

2. Anyone with the smallest bit of knowledge about Floyd and Manny knows that Floyd is a horrible human being, but Manny is far, far worse. These comments are far from the first he's made on things like this, they're just probably the first to be translated to English.

Even worse is his stance on birth control and family planning in a desperately poor third world country. He's a disgusting man.

who cares. It isn't my job to further causes (sjw) that are irrelevant to me.

He's a boxer whose political influence is limited to his country

Crucifying manny the boxer for his social views lowers one to the level of those that whined about Floyd being bad.

That being said people who became manny fans because of his nice guy persona are suckers with a bullseye on their foreheads. It usually takes a mean azz ruthless mofo to become an elite boxer.

Boxing is the best sport. Partially because it doesn't uphold political correctness at the expense of excluding talent.

That country has a population of 100 million people, and I think you'll find his influence is throughout south-east Asia and across the Catholic world. I'm certainly going to criticise both Manny and Floyd for their actions outside the ring. Of course it doesn't effect the result inside the ring. That's not at all unique to boxing. We live in the real world.

My parents are from SEA (not the Philippines though).

They don't know who he is.

ime the whole notion of manny being some hero throughout asia is fabricated. In the US it's easy to be misled into thinking that. There weren't no asian boxers making noise, so when manny came onto the scene asian pride kids latched onto him.

He is a Hero to many. Throughout Asia might be a stretch but lets not forget that he came from poverty to being something in life. I don't really care about his views on homosexuality. I'll enjoy his last fight (if it really is) and carry on.

I read somewhere that Nike wasn't really paying him to wear the brand, but just supplying him with the gear. This is what I read, and we all know what the internet is about these days.

Also, am I the only one who thinks Khan will get seriously hurt in this fight?

Funny thing is his chin is so bad it's unlikely he gets hurt bad.

His mandible can't hold up to a sustained beating, the most damaging kind of azz whooping.

At this point Amir has become a sellout that's all about the money with no regard for glory.

He was content to be inactive at welterweight hoping to 'save himself' (couldn't risk another humiliating loss since the 147 division was getting hot again) for Floyd and manny. Floyd only fights guys coming off a flashy victory so Amir wasn't going to get a match.

Amir is making smart moves financially.

Alvarez is a good payday even if it's very likely Amir gets owned.

Following the defeat he can return to Britain and get paid handsomely to be a stepping stone for Kell Brook.

Now I could be wrong and Amir somehow performs well against Alvarez. In this scenario he'd be one of the most confident motherfuckers in boxing.
