    Solid round 2 as well. Terribly tough to score, 2-0 JMM. Diaz has his moments though.

    Diaz fighting a very good fight. The question is will he continue to fight this way as the fight goes on.

    I love how when both guys get tagged their first instinct is to throw back. Looks like JMM's right eye is showing some damage.

    29-28. JMM

    Good round for JMM

    39-37.

    Diaz did very well to stay on his feet after being hurt early.

    Marquez starting to assert himself as the better boxer. Another round for JMM.

    Yep.

    40-36 JMM.

    Diaz can't fight the way he did in the first but can't outbox a better boxer. Not good for him.

    It's impossible not to love JMM as a boxing fan.

    He's the most fundamentally sound fighter in the sport right now, one of the best counter punchers, one of the best offensive fighters and is willing to fight anybody.

    Diaz did fight a good fight but he's simply fighting a vastly superior boxer. No shame in his performance tonight.

    I don't know what JMM wants to do, personally I don't think he can move to 140 to take on anyone. Manny ain't moving from 147 either. If he fought Katsidis, it'd be a counter punching clinic.

    Great fight. I think Diaz may hang them up after this, he did everything he could really, he just isn't on JMM's level. JMM is such an entertaining and great fighter, he can fight whoever and people will watch. That said, I have no clue where he goes next and I don't think he should fight Manny again.

    They took a break from discussing Bika's busted wife?

    JMM by TKO. Marquez will catch him clean quite frequently and won't be able to take it. I'll bring the pillow if someone wants to bring the broom to sweep up his jaw.

    Huge fan of Devon, been on that bandwagon for a while now. People have been jumping on after what he did to Urango.

    Devon will end up outworking Kotelnik. Kotelnik has a good chin and the ability to take more risks but doesn't.

    That was extremely thoughtful of HBO. Wonder how much money they're losing off all 10 buys that fight would do?

    And I can't believe that fight his happening again, that was rough to watch the first time. Is there a rumored date and site? If it's in Miami during break, I'll head down.

    I'm beyond pissed this fight is being made, no one wants to see this. The 1st fight wasn't close at all and nothing suggests this one will be either. I just can't believe Berto signed off on this, unreal. I haven't seen a date or site yet, just December. As soon as I do, I'll post it in here.

    Re: Boxing Thread- The Future is Now, Devon Alexander tonight on HBO

    I agree it's a shit fight that Berto should easily win. He's got to fight someone though. Because of the earthquake he didn't fight for almost a year and then looked rusty vs Quintana. He's got to stay busy. Only his second fight since last June. I just find it hard to believe they couldn't get anyone better (especially with HBO's backing of Berto).

    I know you follow Berto closer than I do, appreciate it.

    Yea, I defintely understand him needing to fight someone and stay busy, but like you said, I refuse to believe this was the best fight HBO and Berto could put together. I mean come on. I will :facepalm: so hard if HBO even considered making this fight a PPV. But as bad as this fight is, Berto should do well and win easily and be set up to get a much bigger draw next fight.

    Pumped to watch Alexander. Been a fan since I saw him on showtime a few fights back.

    I think thats a smart fight for Berto. He needs 1 more fight before he steps up to the big boys.

    He definitely needs at least one more fight at least before he takes on a big timer, personally I think he needs a few fights before that. But fighting Urango again doesn't help him improve as a boxer at all.

    Re: Boxing Thread- The Future is Now, Devon Alexander tonight on HBO

    You think he'll stay at 147? Or go up to 154 to find better competition.
    I'm just going off the top of my head, unless these 140 lb guys move up there isn't a lot out there at 147.

    154 has a lot of very good fighters and some interesting matchups.

    Honestly there are 2 fighters that should be on PPV Pac/Floyd. That's it. Maybe JMM depending on who he fought and what the under card looks like.

    Re: Boxing Thread- The Future is Now, Devon Alexander tonight on HBO

    He needs a whole new corner before he's ready for the big boys. Or he needs to get thrown in there to realize how unprepared he is for guys who have equal physical gifts.

    Re: Boxing Thread- The Future is Now, Devon Alexander tonight on HBO

    He has said he wants to stay at 147, but what is there for him? I think he is going to be forced to move up to 154. He isn't getting a shot at Pac or Floyd, and I don't think a Mosley fight would happen either. Who would he fight if he stayed, Clottey? Berto is going to have to make the move up to 154 to get some competition. He might stay at 147 if someone moves up from 140, but I don't know if anyone would. He obviously can't go down to 140, so to me, 154 is his only option.

    Johnson is fighting very well. Throwing that jab very well. He needs to close down distance and fight on the inside, done that pretty well so far. On the inside is where he really shows his experience advantage.

    Cut man did a very good job has Harold said.

    That post fight interview was awkward as well.

    Re: Boxing Thread- The Future is Now, Devon Alexander tonight on HBO

    Neither was I. For such a close fight he took rounds off when he couldn't really afford to. He spent a lot of time looking for big shots and got outworked by a much older fighter. Some judges would have given rounds to Johnson just for being more active and the aggressor, Cloud should feel very fortunate. The fighting on the inside I expected Johnson to be much better simply because of his experience.

    I can't even believe that they want to throw this dude in with Bad Chad. He'd get fucked up.

    If Cloud does fight him, its going to be absolutely ugly. Cloud is nowhere close to the class of fighter as Dawson is. Speaking of Chad, excited to see him fight next weekend.
