The ESPN Friday Night Fights Thread

Made this thread on ESB, thought I might as well bring it over to this neck of the woods.

Hopefully now that it's undergoing a Renaissance here I can turn it into what I intended it to be initially rather than what it turned into(which was the thread being bumped about once a week with 2/3 people watching the card live making sporadic posts regarding it). If we're looking for more writing to be on the front page we can do previews*, reviews, etc. Perhaps we could even look back on old ESPN classics? Who knows, it's a crazy show where anything can go.

I think he has a bit more to him than his brother who is a really good boxer in his own right but Jesse seems to have the boxing ability with a bit more power
Well.. that was impressive enough :good
Cue him looking terrible because I've probably jinxed him, but I really rate Magdaleno.
Does a change of fortunes come with a change of boxing sites?:think

If I made this post on ESB I doubt that would've happened.
Guys - RBR should be done in here, as it's a live forum that updates automatically - so you don't need to refresh page :hey

Not for FNF's. 'Tis tradition, bro.
Of course, it's only tradition because there's never enough people around to warrant a RBR.:yep
:conf - live forum here then for now, fight night treat.
I thought the RBR sub-forums were just gonna be used to put the RBR's when they're finished, so it's easy to look back on etc?

But yeah, for now Friday Night Fight's RBRs should just stay in here how Pab's always done it because there's not really enough on for it's own thread.
Yeah not worth doing a proper rbi seeing as barely anyone stats up for fnf
it was more cos i can lessen server load for rbr's by setting for one specific forum (RBR forum), but, it's relatively quiet right now, fuck it everyone has done such great work I'll just leave it on til about midday when I wake up. (I assume people enjoy the Live thread feature for RBR's? )

I'm going bed anyway. G'night.
Pavlik looking decent early on. Lively, composed and looks up for it. Controlling the centre of the ring and showing some decent hand speed. Should be getting rid of Sigmon in the next round or two IMO.

10-9 Pavlik.
Pavlik looks fucking huge, will have Sigmon out of there in a few rounds.
Sigmons right hand looks in slow mo at times
Pavlik timed a few nice left hooks as they were travelling, too.

Pavlik looking in control, as he is expected to be really.
I like Pavliks use of the hook tonight, some of his fights hes been one dimensional in his punch selection, too right hand dependant.
Very one sided but this is getting brutal. Sigmon's blood getting everywhere. Expected a bit more from Pavlik tbh, thought he would've been able to get rid of this guy by now.
Pavlik should start really digging to the body now, it's looked almost like he's been carrying Sigmon in there. On the few occasions he's appeared to have had Sigmon wavering he's taken his foot off the gas and gone back into cruise control. That said Cujo's face is looking nasty.

EDIT: Corner stoppage at the end of the 7th. It. Is. Ovah.
Glad they finished that then. Good to have Pavlik back. He'd make for a good fight against any of the top super middleweights IMO.

Pavlik says in post fight interview that he needs a big fight next, not necessarily a title but says he doesn't need any more tune-ups and wants to get back in there with the top names again.

WAR Pavlik. (unless he ends up fighting Froch)
