    I haven't watched it myself, so was looking to see your take on it. From what I understand from those who have watched it, people ruled in favor of Kovalev because he knocked Ward down in the second and was landing more power shots. Those on Ward's side say he was just as active, especially around the body. And so that's why Ward won by unanimous decision, but those scores were close.

    Heard Andre Ward won by TKO referee stoppage in his rematch with Sergei Kovalev. His trainer apparently trained him for the KO... something that is rare; last time was vs Chad Dawson (who he KO'd). Kovalev's camp is protesting, though, because of alleged "illegal" blows below the belt that weren't called. Anyone catch Oakland's S.O.G in action?

    I did not. I wanted to but I was out on Saturday. I haven't gotten to watch him fight much, but i enjoyed the connection this year with the Warriors. Its been cool thing to see the Oakland connection reach across multiple sports.

    At this point... Tyson Fury. One of the all time great wins against an amazing opponent. Boxing feels like it is back. Please, let it be back.

    Don't have much to say about boxing, I totally respect the sport, but I'm not a fan and don't know sh*t about it...

    Just came here to say that it's great to have Chum back posting!

    Good to hear from you Chum! Sugar Ray looks like he is in his 40's! I am not a big boxing fan, but I was a fan of Tyson and Sugar Ray.

    To me, Sugar Ray Leonard was the best boxer of his era. He was the best middleweight when the middleweight division was king. Sugar Ray, Marvin Hagler, Thommy Hearns, Roberto Stone Hands Duran and many other great fighters... Sugar Ray Leonard was pretty inarguably the best best of that group. Marvin Hagler was my favorite of that group because I liked his pitbull type of style. Mike Tyson reminds me a lot of Hagler...

    but everyone knew Sugar Ray Leonard was the best.

    If you have any interest, here is a great breakdown of Fury's 2nd victory over Wilder...

    All time favorites are Julio Cesar Chavez and Mike Tyson. Those were THE events back in the day. Always had get togethers around those fights.

    I do like Canelo now, but he can be frustrating to watch as a fan.

    Tyson Fury is awesome. He’s the total package. He knows that he’s great, we know that he’s great, and he’s got one of the best personalities in boxing.

    I look forward to his rematch with Deontay Wilder. I like him, too, except for his lame excuse about his costume.
