    What's up with Cam Newton?

    Back in the ESB days, it was widely said that Newton was going to change the quarterback position due to his athleticism and mobility. Having heard this before with Michael Vick, and to a lesser extent Duante Culpepper, Donavan McNabb and a host of others, I was skeptical. Now, Newton is...

    "Young Fury?" Is there another Fury cousin at heavy?

    Boxrec has a "Young Fury" fighting at heavy on the June 26 card in Manchester along with Tyson, Hugh, and Eddie Chambers. Is this another cousin/brother? If so, does he have any amateur experience? Any good?

    Povetkin wants to come back in October, my question is...

    ...do you think the power that he displayed in the Charr fight will now me a permanent part of his game under Ivan Kirpa? I have long suspected that Povetkin had some reservoirs of power that he doesn't show all of the time. Throwing pitty-pat punches is something that you see from a lot of...

    Bogdin Dinu is fighting tomorrow.

    It is a crap fight against 3-3 Abery Gibson, but who cares? Bogdin recently singed with a new team, and this is probably a good sign that he will not go another two years only fighting in tournaments that won't be counted on his professional record. For those uninitiated, Dinu was a major...

    Mago showing signs of improvement

    There is a thread over on another site in which Mago's wife says he understands everything being said to him, and he can speak with difficulty. He has come much farther much faster than thought possible. Of course he will never box again, but lets hope this means that he will make a more or less...

    Congratulations Chino!

    Let me just say that I am a Mayweather fan. I admire the clean skills, the drive, and the work ethic. I think he is one of the top 5-10 fighters ever. But he lost last night, and he knows it. The punch stats I have seen are absolutely crazy...Floyd just did not throw enough punches to...

    Apparently Dinu is now being trained by Stephan Larouche

    I saw it on a thread over at that other, horrible, crappy site that we shall not mention. If true then it is good news. Dinu is a big heavy, and big heavies mature slowly, and I don't think he is even yet 30. At any rate, if he has a good team that can make fights for him, he has plenty of...

    Exorcist II: The Heretic....Am I the only one who thought....

    ...that there was actually a good movie hidden in there somewhere? Apologies, as I know that the movie is now over 35 years old. But for whatever reason, I am thinking about it. The movie, which followed a character by played by Richard Burton as he makes contact with Linda Blair and...

    I was right about China and Kenmore is still an idiot.

    For those who remember Kenmore's "inevitable conflict between the United States and China" thread from ESB, and how I spent a year bombing it with articles regarding China's inevitable decline. All the things I said about the slowing of growth, the middle income trap, the popping of their own...

    Thank Goodness! The Universe Will Experience a "Big Crunch" After All!

    Ever since dark energy (god, how I hate it) was discovered, I have lost a lot of sleep at the thought that the universe will keep expanding and that billions of years from now, it will tear itself apart. Now, thank goodness, two scientist have proven that it will die by re-collapsing. It...

    Why Were All Of Spiderman's Early Opponents Green?

    Will Michael Vick Get Another Chance Next Year?

    He is 33 years old, has lost his starting job to Nick Foles, and his contract is up. So, will another team pick him up? The Positives: The man still has a certain mystique. Though he never did get anywhere near living up to the hype of "changing the quarterback position," there is...

    Leapai dropped Boytsov and won a decision

    Nothing against Leapai who is a nice guy a good puncher, but it seem like the heavyweight division, after making a brief comeback, is falling apart again. 1. Poor Mago. Nuff said on that 2. David Price badly beaten twice by a 42 year old man 3. Glazkov loosing to Scott, but Scott does not...

    How a girl struck out some of the best in baseball

    Provodnikov-bradley rematch?

    No, he has not improved his defensive problems, but I think we all know that Provodnikov really won the first one, and now we have clearly seen by their last fights that it is Provodnikov that has improved (Marquez beat Bradley too. To me Bradley is 0-3 in his last three fights) . I think...

    Soem observations about the government shutdown

    Now that it is all over and there is some perspective, I would like to get a few things off of my chest. First of all, as a card carrying GOP member: what my party did was wrong. It is all of our fault. Yes, Obamacare is wildly unpopular and growing more so as time goes on, but it was...
