Monzon Valdez 2 is a classic.

People think Calzaghe changed his game plan against kessler half way through fight.

Froch changed up against Taylor.

Chavez meldrick.

Etc etc

If anyone has ever had any doubt Carlos is the most methodical, destructive, fighter ever, watch monzon Valdez 2.

You don't fuck with carlos. You faster? So. Stronger? Unlikely? Better? No chance.

It wasn't the one sided schooling I rememebered watching it back. Hamed won more than a few rounds convincingly. What a shame he couldn't deal with that loss and retired. He was like a balloon inflated on pride and ego that just didn't function once he knew he was fallible. He was ruined as a boxer once his act became transparent. He just couldn't deal with it.

Probably the best paragraph I've ever read on Naz Barrera. So many people snub what Naseem did before this fight, against some awesome fighters, but I have no doubt in my mind, Hamed could beat barrera if the whole Ingle/being an egotistical prick thing happened.

He was humbled, and thankfully so, but people act like it was a whitewash, nothing of the sort.

If it wasn't for nas, the lower weight guys, INCLUDING barrera, would never have went over even 100k purses.

This is one of the arguments I use when people call Naz a cunt, he put the little guys bang in the spotlight.

As stated earlier, D, I'm as biased as fuck towards Paez, won't have a word said against him.

He probably didn't have the greatest nights in his career for fourteen rounds, but he sure got the job done in the 15th.

I've got a framed pic of a magazine cover @Chinny kindly posted me, a KO magazine which he was given by Bob Mee. It's one of those things, like my skateboard, I'll take to the grave. I just checked my Photobucket and I don't have the Paez picture I sent Chinny, maybe he still has it on his.

That's the one. Ain't it beautiful? I still have the magazine, I just took it to a decent frame/photo place and they copied the front before framing it.

Thank you Chinny for the picture above from your collection, but thank you more for the magazine. Be rest assured I'll be taking that magazine to the grave. :good

This fight is fresh in the memory having watched it only a few weeks back and Hamed was clearly bested. I think I managed to give him 2, maybe 3 rounds, and that was more to do with what little Barrera was doing rather than any success Hamed had. I think the term 'schooling' is appropriate all things considered. Hamed was comprehensively out-jabbed, out-boxed, out-landed and the final two rounds were about as one-sided as a fight between two supposed great fighters gets without either fighter going down or being stopped. Hamed himself wasn't happy with his performance so it would be foolish to talk it up really. He was outclassed and there was little there to suggest things could - or ever would - have been different.

Let's not perpetuate this myth about Hamed's decline either. It's no coincidence that he suddenly becomes less elusive and far less spectacular once his level of opposition becomes greater. Brendan Ingle was in his corner for the Kevin Kelley fight I believe. Kevin hit hard and had some experience at world level but he was by no means a world beater. Hamed was decked multiple times and was made to look decidedly average. Compare that to his performance against Bungu, a fighter of comparable quality to Kevin Kelley, some years later after Ingle left, and one might conclude that Ingle was a non-factor. There isn't a single solitary name on Hamed's entire resume that a '01 Marco Antonio Barrera wouldn't have beaten conclusively. He embarrasses and stops the majority of them. No, MAB was just a far better fighter. Greater offensive variety, more adaptable, better technically and had the far superior balance. He was just better. Period. Hamed never beats him. Never.

Henry Armstrong vs Barney Ross is one of the most relentless and brutal displays of swarming pressure fighting that I've ever seen, from one the best fighters of all time slap bang in the middle of his prime.

Pure savagery from start to finish and didnt neglect his defence either. Ross was obviously well past his best, but he was still WW champ on a 8 or so fight win streak. IIRC Ross confirmed that he asked Armstrong to go easy later on so he could make the final bell, and HA obliged. Dont quote me on that though might be getting mixed up...

Gotta take these things into context though. We all look good on heavybags.
Valero had two disgusting cuts early on and was facing a bloke 5 inches taller with a huge reach advantage after moving up a weight class.

He hit Demarco with all manner of power punches and won virtually every round despite these obstacles.

Terrific footwork and hand speed. Great to watch.

Thats fair I didnt see that post beforehand I'm just saying there are higher levels to be judged at.. Broner looked better against Demarco for instance. Best boxing performances shouldn't be having the best boxer going through those cuts in the first place.

This one hit the spot.

Systematic one sided destruction of a powerful all conquering champion.

Great to watch.
A past his best, seriously out of shape, seriously miss-matched all conquering champion.

Great win for Hearns though. He pushed Durans shit in.
