Re: Official 2010 Boxing Thread- Congrats to Cotto- A True Champion I was went to the fights last night. Overall it was an enjoyable experience. It was definitely entertaining withe HUGE Puerto Rican/Hispanic population there. Here are some thoughts on the night: - I had seats on the 300 level, but of course my buddies and I just sat in open seats on the lower level. Something you can do without much shame when you're young. It turned out that right before the main event they stopped checking tickets at the lower level next to the field so we sat in the best seats possible that weren't ringside. - Overall I thought the undercard fights were pretty, meh. The Joe Greene fight was decent though. - This was my first time in Yankee Stadium (new or old). The stadium is very nice and the jumbo screen in the outfield has unreal clarity. - The Latin women there... The women were amazing. From the cougar/young gold diggers that were sitting ringside, to all the good looking girls in the stand. There was a lot of eye candy walking around, it was great. Got eye fucked by a cougar, but naturally she proceeded to walk down to ringside because she was a trophy wife. - The dynamic between the Jews and the Puerto Ricans was pretty damn funny. Jews of course aren't very loud, but some of them got rowdy during the fight. The Puerto Ricans on the other hand...they were insane all night. Seemed like everyone had a flag there. It was actually pretty cool, although I definitely encountered a few dbags on the night. Specifically some 5'6" white dude with beer muscles that was apparently so fucking huge he couldn't help but walk into people. Nice verbal altercation there. - Saw 2 guys get into a fist fight on the 300 level. That was pretty funny. The one dude got pummeled until a cop came in and just shouldered the one guy to the ground. - Regarding the main event. You could feel the excitement there when the fighters came out. Like I said the undercards weren't all that great, but once they main event was starting you could just feel the energy rise. I thought the fight was really even until Foreman hurt his knee, although I had Cotto slightly ahead. My seats for the main event were as good as they could have been without sitting ringside, but from that distance it was still hard to not watch the jumbo screen. When Foreman fell the first time, did they say if he slipped in the ring, or if his leg just gave out on him? It was hard to tell. Once Foreman's corner tossed the towel in the place went ape shit. People immediately left too, which I thought was funny when they restarted the fight moments later. I was impressed with the way Foreman was fighting through his injury. My friends and I were hoping for some Rocky type gutsy ending where he could knock Cotto out, but his knee just wouldn't allow it. Overall it was a cool experience. Being in Yankee Stadium for the first time and for the first fight was cool. The ending was disappointing of course, but it was a good fight up until that point. You've got to feel bad for both fighters. That's a tough way to lose a belt if you're Foreman, and the win just doesn't feel the same if you're Cotto. I'm hoping there will be a rematch. Here are some pics I took on my phone: My seat during the main event Cotto on the jumbo screen Foreman on the jumbo screen There were tons of dimes there. The place was crawling. Here was TMB 3 that was sitting a couple seats down from us. Trust me, her body and face were amazing. Here's some crappy pics I took while I was drunk.
