As a huge Boxing fan, i am really looking forward to these fight, specially Lacy Calzaghe. I do expect a tough fight from Calzaghe, but think he will get knocked out by the better Lacy in about 6 or 7. As for Cotto vs Branco, I feel it should be an easy win for Cotto, he dosnt seem to really be challanging anyone big yet, but I still enjoy watching him fight. I didnt see any threads on this so thought I would post, and get everyone elses opinions on these fights. There should be some Boxing fans out there right?

I'm right there with you. I added this to my sig earlier this week to let people know. Amazing how there are not more fight fans here.

Lacy's got some serious grapefruits fighting that dude in his own backyard. I hope he wins too. LOVE the guy!! Closest thing to Tyson that this generation has. Would love to see Cotto make quick work of Branco.

i love boxing, but ****s hard to keep up with. i dont have HBO or Showtime. the only time i get to watch it is on ESPN friday night fights or when somebody wants to buy a pay per view fight and i can go to their house and throw down on it.

I've always wanted to write a weekly column here to keep fans abreast as to whats going on. And your right Nappy, with all the big time fights on Pay Per View or premium channels, it's tough to follow unless you are truly hardcore.

I'll start writing up some weekly wrapups tomorrow night here in this forum and see if they catch fire.

I couldn't see the fight. But ESPN and the scorecards said Lacy was dominated. :(


The judges scored the bout 119-105, 119-107, 119-107 in favor of Calzaghe.

Lacy goes down for the first time in his career. 12th round.

Lacy was exposed tonight. I'm saddened by what I saw. Calzaghe took him to the woodshed. Kudos to him.

I'll keep you posted on the warrior from Ghana d-day. Dont worry.

And that was just in terms of brutality. It was Wright-Trinidad or Hamed-Barrera in terms of a 12 round domination. Lacy hit Joe with a bomb in the 1st and he walked right through it and outclassed Left Hook. Lacy looked amatuerish in there, throwing wildly, no torso movement, nothing. Where does everyone think either guy should go next? For Joe C.(forget the Calslappy moniker for good) we'll hear about a fight with Roy Jones I"d imagine. But whats next Lacy? He was demoarlized in there tonight.

Also today: Cotto-Branco=waste of time. Marquez losing his featherweight supremecy was a bit surprising but John apparently won the fight easily.

Lacy was dominated, and I thought that he would win going into the fight. Branco, was also dominated by Cotto, but I think we all saw that coming.
