The Boxing Thread.

A search engine search yielded no results, so I decided to start this thread. Any boxers here on SRK?

About me, I'm a brand new boxer that's hoping to go amaetur in due time. I'm still learning to perfect the jab, speed bag, left hook, uppercut and foot/leg movement. I know I'm still very new so I'm looking for beginner tips. Also, does anyone know how time I should dedicate each day to this craft? How much is too much and how much is not enough?

    To answer your question, I would twice a day. This is based on the assumption that you work during the day. I would also point out to you that to become a good boxer, this requires tremendous amount of engineering, research and design, and of course diligent training.

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. is ST Akuma broken tier? Love him or hate him, it's true. He's like the Mike Tyson of this age...

    I doubt anyone in this thread gives Alvarez much of a chance. You're thinking of Facebook, shit will go full retard on Facebook before/during/after the fight.

    Speaking of Alvarez:

    Lost another thread to Skynet huh...

    I'm more excited for the Danny Garcia - Lucas Matthysse fight. Can't really call it, I like both.

    Floyd gonna Floyd. If Alvarez can't do anything early it is GGPO.

    Article went in on him. Harsh but hard to argue a lot of it. He's fought mostly overmatched competition and he usually has a weight advantage which is extra insurance against those opponents.

    The article's pretty unnecessarily hostile and I never really understood the purpose of pointing out that the media created hype around somebody.

    I think Alvarez has a pretty good chance at winning, I think the fact that Mayweather is entering the ring with an opponent who will outweigh him by 20lb is a testament to how much people expect of him. Anyway Floyd isn't exactly a spring chicken any more, his reflexes is dull, he's not as sharp fighting at Jr Middleweight, he's prone to getting out muscled at the weight and there's obviously less margin for error.

    I expect him to win comfortably but at the same time I wouldn't be surprised if Canelo caught him, or bullied him out of the fight.

    How many other opponents that Floyd has faced have been media creations? Ortiz, guerrero? Lol.

    I like canelo. I believe floyd will win but i still like the kid

    Canelo has a bright future either way. Granted Floyd is older, his boxing iq is ridiculous. So if anything he can rely on that and wear down Canelo.

    Canelo is largely unproven. He's mostly feasted on bloated 140-147 lbers.

    If that article hit on anything, it's that he hasn't shown the best footwork in there against anyone yet. Poor footwork against Mayweather, good luck catching him.

    He's young, he's got time to improve that and I hope he does. Would hate to see his career just die off because he wasn't ready for Mayweather.

    Canelo is legit. Unproven? Smh Lol...welcome to boxing. You're "nobody" until you beat somebody in this sport. What's funny is he has wins over GOOD/GREAT fighters...not scrubs. Trout, cotto, sugar Shane, Gomez etc etc. ppl just only started paying attention to him..those who really watch boxing know this kid is nothing to play with.

    I'm still pro Mayweather this fight but, idk..if he lands a hit? It's not going to be pretty. We all remember when Shane got that touch on Floyd. Now keep in mind canelo at this point is heavier and hits harder than Shane...

    Again I got Floyd getting the W Bc in sure once he gets canelo a timing it's all over. Floyd likes to analyze and make you pay..similar to winky in a way. If Floyd fights his typical outside of the pocket style with the occasional inside game I see Floyd winning UD. If Floyd gets baited into fighting canelos fight and or tries to play for the crowd..he WILL end up like my boy Anderson Silva :sad:

    All of them except Trout weren't exactly in their prime, though. Overall, I agree with you, but I definitely see where the doubt comes from. I think the biggest thing in Canelo's favor is that Mayweather's closest fights have all been against heavier opponents. Given that Alvarez is going to rehydrate up to probably 170 and is a lot younger than the guys who've given Mayweather some rough times in the past, it really could be trouble for Money. That said, I'm still doubting the odds are as close as the books seem to be making it, but I also can't agree with the people saying Canelo doesn't have a chance.

    I'm probably gonna have to catch the early via update, unfortunately, so my main hope is that it's not an early knockout; I don't want the fight to be over before I get a chance to even start watching, haha.

    The only one worth of note you mentioned was Trout.The Cotto was Cotto's cokehead brother Jose Cotto, not Miguel. Sugar Shane has been shot since he almost took out Mayweather(Looked like crap and arguably lost to Sergio Mora after he lost to Mayweather, and he should not have even scored a main event fight against Pacquiao), and I can give credit to Alvarez for beating a ring saavy journeyman in Gomez(Nothing more to it than that). I see what you're getting at in you can only fight what's realistically available to you(Especially as a prospect), and it's easy to forget this guy is only 23 so it'll be interesting to see what happens, but I'm not still not convinced until I can see him against more fighters his size, where his power disparity is lessened big time.

    I give him credit for the Trout fight though, Trout is not a bad fighter by any means. I don't blame him personally for taking the Mayweather fight either, it's not up to him to understand he's not ready, he should feel like he can beat anyone. I like Canelo as a fighter and hope he has a good future ahead of him, hopefully with some better footwork.

    Right now, this is probably going to just be Mayweather doing his thing. If you enjoy watching him be a technician out there, by all means watch the fight. If you're looking for him to get knocked out, good luck.

    This first fight is pretty damn good. I might miss the Matthysse fight...I still have no clue who will win. I'mma say slight edge to Matthysse just because Garcia was leaving himself open a bit towards the end of the Zab Judah fight and you don't want to do that against Matthysse with that power. Pretty sure they'll fight again somewhere down the line regardless of the result.

    Sigh...not going to get into a debate Bc Im slightly tipsey and don't want to kill my buzz so ill just say this; Floyd has also fought fighters past thier prime(Oscar) or not at all (see winky, ward, Bradley, pacman) hell, he fought Oscar when he was on the decline. Most ppl dont say shit about that though.

    Granted I think Floyd would beat ward, pacman, winky etc but lets not pretend he isn't an opportunist himself. He doesn't want a "1" on his record..his fight selections show that. Now I'm a fan don't misunderstand..but my point is dont say canelo isn't fighting guys at thier prime...shit, that's boxing nowadays. Dudes don't want fight each other.

    One more thing Shane is like a Bernard Hopkins ..he just enjoys the sport. Gotta love him. Also he's still in GREAT shape.

    Andre Ward would make Floyd look fucking stupid in the ring. He's bigger, faster, smarter, and the only thing Floyd has is experience but Ward has actually cleaned out his division when guys were at their best. Andre Ward is one of two people in boxing right now who can legitimately be once in a lifetime talents.
