I'm a huge boxing fan, always participate in the boxing threads here at extremeskins. Been talking boxing here since before everyone realized Roy Jones was a chump.

If that's you in the middle, why does it not surprise me that a leftist Michael Moore admirer would look like you do? J/K

:laugh: It's not the same guy...I think ATV is the left-wing Looney, not ACW. And at any day now you can stop referring back to my pic. I know it's hard for you to forget about, but there are girls out there. :D

Anyways, back to boxing, what fights are you guys looking forward to seeing in 2008?

i want to see:

Pacquiao vs. Marquez II (already signed)

Hatton vs. Junior Witter (probably won't happen)

Paul Williams vs. Miguel Cotto (could happen later in year if both are still undefeated)

Pavlik vs. Taylor II (already signed)

Chad Dawson vs. Antonio Tarver (won't happen because Tarver is ducking him like the plague)

Calzaghe vs. Hopkins

Andre Berto vs. a top10 ww (Berto is rising star in the division, i want to see how he handles top competition)

Wlad Klitshcko vs. Any Other credible heavyweight

alot more, but thats all i got off the top of my head without looking at any lists.

on a sad note:

R.I.P. to Korea Boxer Yo-Sam Choi who fell into a coma after his Christmas day bout and was taken off a ventilator around midnight Wednesday morning

Been talking boxing here since before everyone realized Roy Jones was a chump.

Blasphemy damn it!!!!!!!!! :laugh:

Thanks, StillUnknown. You know your MMA and apparently your boxing. Hopefully this year will be good.

Why even mention the sanctioning bodies? They are ruining boxing. Those titles mean nothing. The only rankings and titles that are legit are the ring titles.

big boxing fan here, I can't wait to see the Klitschko v. Ibragimov fight at the meadowlands. I'm trying to land tickets but I doubt I'll succeed. I agree with reaper, thank goodness this is a unification fight. I hope more are to come but I doubt it.

its actually one of the better trunk sets i've seen. they showed him sitting at ringside watching his brother's fight and he had on the robe, which is burgundy and gold with R.I.P #21 down the middle of the robe.

if i find a picture i'll post it.

edit: after Lamont Peterson's fight, some members of his corner held up a Sean Taylor Jersey, nice little tribute.

It's funny, you'd never see that type of thing for any other football team. We love our skins deeply. Kudos to him.

Watched a couple fights on ESPN Classic tonight.

Forgot the names, but all four of them had fantastic jabs. I don't know if it's because I haven't watched boxing in a long time, but these cats would stun anybody with bare fists with those jabs. The problem is, boxing is much different than MM...nevermind. :)

In reality, I'm looking forward more towards the next year of ESPN Classic Boxing, than regular boxing. I could barely recognize the names StillUnknown provided. Although, I will make a valiant effort to watch big fights this year. As boxing was my first martial art, and first love as far as sports go.
