    49 year old Bernard Hopkins takes on knockout artist Sergey Kovalev. It should be good.

    Hopkins said he wants to fight GGG.

    Hopkins may die if GGG takes the fight.

    Hopkins has his hands full with Kovalev. GGG needs to fight the winner of Cotto-Canelo.

    GGG needs to build a spaceship and find some alien planet where they have jaws of steel, because humans can't handle his punch.

    Barely. On it's last legs, everyone wants to fight cupcakes and extend their careers. I thought UFC would be it's death knell, but it seems like UFC is dying too.

    Hi Gwarn. Yes, it's still a sport, but mostly seen on Showtime these days. I'll be watching Hopkins tomorrow night.

    its sad but we all called it. 20 years ago we would have parties for every huge fight and there were tons of them. lots of characters in the sport. now I couldnt name 5 current boxers. its shocking whats happened but with all the bullshit they pull it was inevitable. I remember when Michael moorer won the belt and immediately said he wouldnt fight again for at least 10 months.

    to put it perspective Im pretty sure the brutal the fight series between Sugar Ray Robinson and Jake LaMotta all took place within 90 days

    If you mean the weather, I agree. I have enough food/water for the month. My Brother checked my generator and it's all set. By Wednesday it will be freezing.

    It's just a matter of days before Wilson is not indicted. (crossing fingers) It shouldn't come this far, but there is no way I'm doing Xmas shopping in STL. this year.

    We may see some boxing skills during those outbreaks! And the police have already announced a zero tolerance for looting. BangBang we will kill you dead is the message

    I watched a documentary about Don King. He wanted Vitaly/Vladimir. They were at his house and King was playing the piano. They were impressed until they walked around the piano and saw he wasn't really playing.

    Yeah they put that up for auction!

    It's gonna get bad in the ferguson area. I fear shootings both ways and lots of damaged property and people.

    IKR? Obviously they didn't sign with him.

    Golden Boy has a pretty solid hold right now. I'm glad tomorrow is on HBO. I love Harold Lederman. "ok Jim"....
