    Official 2016 Boxing Thread: 11/5/2016 - Vargas/Pacquiao Top Rank PPV.

    Based on what Hopkins has said, my main guess was GGG, followed by DeGale or Stevenson, with the latter two being unlikely due to the HBO/Haymon situation. However, now those two guys seem like the best candidates IMO (I think Beterbiev is still injured)..

    Wow, that was sad. Something is seriously off with Alvarado. Overall, a pretty bad card. What's worse is there isn't another significant card for another month.

    It seems a bit far fetched to me that the fight could have been fixed. Stiverne was throwing KO punches throughout the fight and landed a good one here and there. How would he know those punches wouldn't KO Wilder? This is the same guy who struggled against Ray Austin.

    Interesting matchup. Stiverne's is so sluggish on his feet that I think it might be difficult for him to get in range against the height, reach, and speed of Wilder. I mean look at his performance Austin where he looked completely mediocre in a fight that was close to even before he got the...

    Although Hopkins has set the bar so high for older boxers, still got to give Tarver props for his performance at age 46.

    That's true but I just feel like Pacquiao's speed and countering ability is so much greater that it will likely make him hesitant about opening up as has been the case with many Pacquiao opponents. Maybe he won't shell up quite to the extent of Mosley but I just feel like he won't be doing...

    Roach mentioned that Pacquiao told him that he wants to KO Algieri in the 1st round and that he never says things like that so we might see an aggressive Pacquiao in the 1st round. Personally, I think Pacquiao's speed is going to be too much and either he's going to get Algieri out early or...

    I agree but at the same time I think his last two opponents were better than DeMarco who's yet to even do anything at 140.

    I think Vargas should win somewhat comfortably.

    Anyone still here from the early '00s?

    I've been around since the Nikepark days and remember when Niketalk was first formed. I lurked for a little bit and then signed up at some point in '00 and again in '04.

    Pacquiao-Rios only did ~475k. I'm thinking this will do even worse.

    How is Barclay's compared to the MSG? I feel the crowd is probably more lively, yes?

    I'd have to favor Kovalev vs. Stevenson. Both possess great power and don't take the best punch, but I got to go with the guy who seems to have a higher level of skill and I believe that's Kovalev. Looks like Michael is saying Beterbiev is ready for Kovalev right now. Not sure how realistic...

    Here's some prop bet options for Hopkins-Kovalev (courtesy of 5dimes.com): I'm tempted by the +2000 for the Hopkins winning within the distance. I know to most it probably sounds like a sucker bet considering Hopkins hasn't stopped anyone in 10 years but I have my suspicions about Kovalev's...

    Yeah, I don't think he'll get knocked out. He spoken about how he knows there's a segment of the fans and media who would love to see him laid out on canvas with his mouthpiece having to be taken out and it just seems that he doesn't want to give anyone that satisfaction. Kovalev hasn't really...
