boxing
« on: November 13, 2020, 08:31:08 PM »
I have never watched boxing. I remember as a little kid mike tyson was super fun and good and I'd see his highlights on sportscenter and later I kicked his entire ass on punchout. but that's the extent of my boxing awareness.

BUT, there's a guy from Omaha named Terence Crawford and he's basically the best boxer around or something and I enjoy following how he's doing. He also makes some of his fights be in Omaha and everyone gets super excited about it. I don't watch the fights but I get excited to see if he won.

I feel really guilty watching boxers blast each other in the face until one of them gets concussed but my primal animal spirit makes me watch highlights sometimes. 

I hope Terence can blast people so fast that he never gets concussed and win the whole damn thing!

Boxing reminds me of the opening scene of The Wire.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYgKmOJT_gM&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=WireLover2

(Paraphrasing)

"Snot plays it out till the pots deep, then snatch and run...every time"

"So let me get this straight, every friday night you play craps and every night he would wait until their was alot of money out there then grab it and run?"

"Yeah, we would beat his ass but he didnt deserve to get shot"

"So let me ask, if he would always grab the pot and run why did you let him keep playing?"

"Got to, this is America man"

How come this guy hasn’t fought Pacquio, I assume he is scared?

I was going to ask you about Bud!

The Pacquio thing, the only reason that Crawford wants to fight him is its the only big money fight that there is for him. Crawford is one of the best boxers o.a.t. but he hasn't made nearly close to the money that historical boxers of his stature has because he has no high profile rivals, and he's wrecked everyone he's faced.

He would absolutely murder old man manny and manny knows that too, but he needs the money to get his face caved in. The fight will happen and it will almost assuredly be manny's last fight ever. They want to wait until fans are allowed back to sporting events on a large scale, so they can maximize the take, so the fight will happen next summer, maybe fall.

Bud's next actual fight that matters for something other than money will be late 2021, early 2022, against Errol Spence Jr., a former US Olympian.

Jones looked like he didn’t belong.

Tyson looked great (for an old ass dude), in shape, moved well etc.

Super lame they called it a draw

Everyone including Jones knew he lost. The post-fight interview was hilarious. Jones wants no part of a rematch.

I'm glad I didn't pay for that, it was awful, probably should have expected it.

Snoop was great. Legit fan geeking out during the fight. Hilarious, “this looks like uncle so and so at the bbq” lines

No opinion either way, but Lopez has become such a buttoned up corporate Hollywood robot, it was a funny visual.
