Ed001 u about mate? Just read your article about The Hitman Hearns. Was class mate, I didn't even know that was there was great read. How u getting on with your next boxing article mate was it Leonard? That's how I came across Hearns, I searched for Leonard.

{Ed001's Note - every time I think I am ready to start he does a bunch of new interviews! That is the only thing that is stopping me from getting it done now. It is my ocd, I have to read through them all just in case. I am hoping to start writing it tomorrow, if I can just make sure I avoid looking on search to see if there is anything new.}

That's the perfectionist in u mate. That Hearns one was class. Legends like Leonard will always be active till the day they die. Best of luck with it mate. Looking forward to it.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, you are right, they suddenly pop up on podcasts out of nowhere and in magazines because of their status. Really glad you enjoyed the Hearns one, researching him made me gain an extra respect for him. I had forgotten just how good he and the other Four Kings actually were.}

2.) 27 Nov 2020 11:19:19
They were class mate.

{Ed001's Note - very much so, though it is a shame we never got to see them all fight each other while at their respective peaks.}

3.) 27 Nov 2020 11:45:22
Who you think had the best career out of the four of them mate?

{Ed001's Note - has to be Hagler, Leonard spent most of his time in and out of retirement when he should have been at his peak. Duran lived it up too much to really make the most of his talents. So it leaves it between Hearns and Hagler. I think you have to give it to Hagler because he had everything against him. He was always the outsider, while the other 3 had such huge backing.}

4.) 27 Nov 2020 12:07:16
Yeah I'd agree mate. He ruled the Middleweight division for so long and should have been longer if he was given a title shot earlier.
The Hagler v Hearns fight is legendary. I always wondered why they didn't do it a second time, but maybe if they did, it would took something away from the 1st fight.

{Ed001's Note - I think the lack of respect accorded to Hagler by the boxing powers made it difficult for him to get the fights he wanted. I can't remember the story around Hagler-Hearns now though, I am sure there was a reason they didn't fight a second time but I can't remember one being mentioned when I researched Hearns.}

Best I ever seen. Just a kid with the weight on his shoulders. Feel sorry for Floyd at times. I heard a good saying today that certainly applies to Mayweather. "He was born a pawn but will die a king", boxing not been the same for me since my favourite boxer left.

1.) 26 Nov 2020 21:55:55
Seen this, it's good. Part 2 is also available if you haven't seen it.

2.) 27 Nov 2020 11:18:47
Brilliant Hsf, thanks mate.

Dubois vs Joyce on Saturday. Who yous got?

1.) 25 Nov 2020 20:30:02
Dubois within 5, for a number of reasons.

1). Joyce has a far greater resume, but all of his opponents bar Jennings, have been over the hill and out of shape. Oh one other exception you can maybe throw in there, is Iago Kiladze who gave Efe Ajagba a heavy thump to the canvas in the last 2 years.

2). Joyce is very, very slow. He swings his whole body into the punches which means you can see them a mile off, Dubois will be able to throw 2 or 3 punches in that time.

3). Joyce gets hit a lot. There have been a lot of times in all of his fights, where he's been pressuring someone up against the ropes and taken clean counter punches. Stiverne (who is a walking punchbag) was able to land numerous counter-punches in there fight and he took a lot of punches in his most recent fight with Michael Wallisch.

4). Joyce has been stopped in the amateurs and hurt in the pro's. Normally I wouldn't say this has any relevence, as it was a long time ago. However, Joyce has shown little to no improvement on his defensive game aside from footwork. In his amateur fight with Sergey Kuzmin, his glove touched down and he was dropped heavily. He probably would have continued if it was a pro fight, but the amateurs are much more cautious. Here is the footage.

In his fight with Jennings he was hurt to the body in the opening round. Granted he was messing around with bolo punches and moving his hands around like he was at an 80s disco, but still he got hurt and didn't punch back for at least 30 seconds.

Just my view. I think Dubois has too much for Joyce.

2.) 26 Nov 2020 16:32:52
I agree mate to an extent but I'll go for Dubois on points. I think he will work off the jab and attack the body of Joyce. The heavy hands of Joyce will be enough to keep Dubois cautious about unloading. Hope it's a good scrap whatever happens.

3.) 26 Nov 2020 16:47:24
If Dubois does stop Joyce it will be to the body imo.



21 Nov 2020 21:02:31
I know this is the plan but if Eddie Hearn keeps talking he's going to get Alen the savage Babic a serious hiding. Chisora would take his head off.

1.) 23 Nov 2020 01:46:27
He keeps talking about Hrgovic, which is utter insanity. Maybe Babic has a chin made of Neutron matter, but these bigger guys will bounce him around the ring after 3 rounds.

He's limited but entertaining. It will be fun to see his career pan out.



19 Nov 2020 11:34:03
Canelo Vs Smith Dec 19. Good fight been wanting to see this for a while, think Canelo will stop him late. Give Smith a bigger chance at light heavy.

1.) 19 Nov 2020 18:45:07
For Smith to win he's got to keep it long and use his size to his advantage, given that he's so much bigger than Canelo. However, Ryder showed that you can get close to Smith quite easily, so I doubt he'll keep Canelo at range.

2.) 20 Nov 2020 02:47:17
Canelo will dance him around for about 7 rounds then stop him when he tires.

Did Dubois slabber about Joyce's mum? Something about her vision? Karma is something else isn't it. Lol.

It's a real bad injury both physically, emotionally and psychologically. He fought with that injury for afew rounds and the pain must have been immense. God knows he's a braver man than me, I'd of been well out of there as soon as any damage started.
Watched the fight again last night and tbh Dubois looked exactly what he is, a young kid looking for someone to help him. He was looking out of there from about round 6 onwards. Hope he does come back and he's certainly got time on his hands although I think sadly he wont.

I think a lot of people will now say oh that's what joyce does. His engine, his chin and that jab will cause anyone problems. He broke Dubois' heart. Beat him up abit with the jab. Hope Dubois can come again but personally I think that injury has finished him.
