    Seeson you serious? The guy has some of the highest punch outputs in some of his past fights. Just exactly how long have you been watching The Punisher?

    I actually think he's one of the most exciting guys. He throws a lot, therefore leaves himself open plenty which makes for interesting fights.

    I can't co sign fighters who gas in the late rounds and don't even pretend to move their heads. His volume is great, but I'm not a fan of his at all.

    After thinking about it, I'm lying. All those reasons are bs, because sometimes Sergio gasses and I still love him, and sometimes Devon doesn't move his head and I still love him. I guess I'm just a hater. I don't like guys who are just born with physical tools that are unfair for their weight class. It just rubs me the wrong way. Its why I wasn't a fan of Chico at lightweight, that shit was just wrong that he had that height and reach at that weight.

    I respect you for at least admitting you're hating :funny:.

    Yea he does have some freakish physical characteristics for his class but the guy was calling people out from 147 - 160. It's not like everyone in those division are smaller than the man, they just know he throws like crazy and it's a risky fight. Recently he's been what some would call "exposed" but I say he's just learning what he needs to correct and I'm pretty sure he'll look much better next time he and Martinez get in the ring.

    If you look at some of Paul's earlier fights like the one against Margarito, he had no problem at all with his stamina and was throwing a high number of punches every round for the whole fight. It's all a matter of tweaking your training once you know exactly how hard it's going to be against the top fighters.

    :funny: it's "Pathetic"

    I don't blame you for only knowing two boxers now.

    Oh and his racist comments have NOTHING to do with what he does in the ring.

    I could agree with most, just the Victor Ortiz name makes me throw up in my mouth a bit lol. I'm still not convinced he's cut out for the sweet science. I want to see him in a brawl and get a cut, then we'll see if he has the heart necessary.

    Actually agree with seeson about Paul Williams being boring. Weird, because I'm usually on the edge of my seat when watching swarmers, but maybe I just watched the wrong fights.

    Anyway, I don't watch nearly enough modern boxing to pretend I know the scene, but off the top some guys I like that are active and still viable are JMM, rigondeaux, martinez, floyd, and pac man.

    gamboa's fun to watch, but he's going to get his ass whooped eventually. takes a lot of chances.
