Eh.

Double edged sword to me. It's great exposure but half of these dudes have no idea what they're talking about most of the time.

Yeah, but hopefully these casual fans begin to learn the sport and learn to follow fighters other than Manny Pacquaio

either way, it seemed like everyone was talking about last Saturday this week

This is what I'm trying to do.

If ESPN doesn't know what they're talking about what would you guys recommend for a beginner to start understanding the sport

I've never read Ring Magazine Online

I thought about picking up an actual magazine until I saw it like 7 or 8 dollars

I disagree. Boxing been exciting. and 2007 and 2008 were incredible yrs that had extremely exciting EVENLY MATCHED fights.
If u call PacMan stomping De La Hoya and KO'ing Hatton Exciting then U need to really watch some boxing.


Cotto vs Margarito
Israel Vasquez vs Rafael Marquez (prolly one of the top 10 fights in Boxing history and easily the best fight Ive seen)
Shane Mosely vs Cotto
Kelly Pavlik vs Jermaine Taylor
JMM vs Juan Diaz

just to name a few, were all Far more compelling and exciting

Pacman is that dude. I've never thought a full blooded Filipino would get nationwide recognition. Feels good.

The number of dudes posting in the 2009 thread is much greater than the 2007

Visit the the Boxingscene.com And def. read Dan Rafael's stuff.

ESPN's coverage is most def. appreciated....for the little they do. We need to see more boxing on regular television.


One of the reason's I love the sport is because there is very few that follow the sport religiously......its almost like a special club.

Appreciated
One of the rare times i see un-biased boxing coverage

Philippine media covering boxing though UN-appreciated
They still talking crap about Floyd Sr 7 days after the fight
