  • Looks like the Philippines have made great strides in their amateur program congrats to them..

    • DL: agreed. I think they finally realize with the right amount of attention and financial backing, they can produce some great athletes. Good for them!

  • Davis – Bachkov and Yafai – Paalam should be really good fights. Bachkov gets hit entirely too much, but he absolutely brings it. His fights have been fantastic. And he probably loses, but the Brazilian, Herbert Sousa, has looked super smooth.

    • Lucie: u seem to have the scoop, what network will it be on and what time? Any info is welcomed info 🙂

        • awesome, thanks Whetto. i’ll check it out and see if it shows the fight on Sunday. thanks bud.

          • No problem. I have my Dvr scheduled to record tomorrow at 10:45pm pacific time on CNBC. It says gold medal bouts.

  • Really pushing for Torrez to get some redemption against Jalolov. This is very much like the Rocky movie when he faced Drago. Jalolov is a beast and Undefeated pro with all Victories by KO. Lets go Torrez! We are already proud of u, get this win for you and the sweet taste of revenge!

  • Wow Brazil fighting for Gold..Cuba hands down in the land of Monster Zero..Ukraine’s best more than 2012?
    USA guaranteed 2 medals..Maybe Super Hvwt Gold?
    shades of George Foreman..
