Amazing, I think people might want to see this. ADONIS STEVENSON MOVED TO TEARS AS THE WBC and CHAMPS HONOR HIM

It's been a few days since Patrick Day passed away, so I thought I'd ask what you think would be the best way to resolve this issue in Boxing? Patrick is the 4th death this year in Boxing, as a result of injuries sustained in a fight. The 4 deaths this year were Patrick Day (Oct 12), Boris Stanchov (Sep 21), Hugo Alfredo Santillan (Jul 25) and Maxim Dadashev (Jul 19).

The way I see it, there needs to be something done to this sport, in order to make it safer. But I understand the sport will practically lose it's fan base if you take the brutality out of it.

There's nothing to change, the name of the game is to hurt your opponent, or knock them out to win, both fighters know the risks involved, it's just the nature of the beast unfortunately.


2.) 20 Oct 2019 01:07:02
I read on average 13 boxers die in the ring every year. I would like to see a tougher stance of concussions like the concussion protocol they have in the NFL. Trainers and Promoters and fighters themselves have to be truthful about what happens in the gym. To many fighters r being hurt or knocked out in the gym and it's not reported, if u r knocked out in the gym you should be given a 28 day rest from boxing just like u would if u were knocked out in a fight. They should introduce punishments for any gym not obeying the rules. Could also look at how fighters cut weight. a lot of them seriously damage their health by cutting so much weight, possibly moving the weigh in closer to the fight might help this. In reality though boxing is the hurt business and without making them box using pillows as gloves it's never going to be 100% safe.

Boxing is just one of them sports that can never be truly safe. It's like the north west 200 motorbike race or the one they have in the isle of Man. The Dunlop family have had about 3 or 4 brothers die in them races but still members of their family race, because they love it. Same with boxing.

I asked for confirmation a few days ago, but Sky Sports are now reporting that Errol Spence Jr has been charged with drink driving.
Stupid idiot.

1.) 18 Oct 2019 10:57:19
Yeah its confirmed now he's been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, was just a matter of time. Numerous videos of him drunk in nightclubs and he did turn up to the Garcia vs Porter presser pissed.
Hes a very lucky man to be alive and not be facing a serious charges here, I hope he sees this as a chance to sort his problems out.


2.) 18 Oct 2019 15:47:44
In the old days they would have lost their boxing licence for that, now they just get a slap on the wrist, even the drug cheats get the same.

Erroll Spence jr was involved in a serious car crash last night. He's in serious condition but is "expected to survive".

That doesn't sound too good, is Spence going to be able to fight again?

hsf

1.) 10 Oct 2019 14:31:15
He was thrown from the car, so he must be in pretty bad shape. I hope he doesn't have any major spinal or head injuries.


2.) 10 Oct 2019 15:15:25
Terrible news. I hope he makes a full recovery.


3.) 10 Oct 2019 16:31:34
Sad news. Hope he recovers.


4.) 10 Oct 2019 19:01:43
Just seen the video of crash, he's a very lucky man.


5.) 11 Oct 2019 10:49:15
Good news.

"Spence is awake and responding and is listed in stable condition. He didn’t sustain any broken bones or fractures, but does have some facial lacerations. He is expected to make a full recovery. "


6.) 11 Oct 2019 16:10:46
That is good news, but I've seen a lot of youtube comments saying he was drink driving - anyone got any sources for these comments? I couldn't find any.


7.) 11 Oct 2019 22:09:40
Cant find anything confirming that mate.

Chisora's replacement opponent is David Price.

Interesting.

hsf

1.) 08 Oct 2019 14:39:33
Should be good fight but expect chisora to win, good British level fight.


2.) 08 Oct 2019 15:20:00
Another non event with two hasbeens.


3.) 08 Oct 2019 16:20:29
Hearn said last week because parker was a top 10 they would get a top 10 fighter to replace him. I like big price but this fight should be Saturday fight night. My bro said to me that he reckons that parker was never going to fight chisora, parker wasnt at the press conference or anything, I'm starting to believe him because its turning into WWE now all a bunch of con men.


4.) 08 Oct 2019 17:16:46
According to BoxRec, Price is ranked #20 in the world, which isn't too bad I guess. Plus he is coming off the back of 3 stoppage wins (1 tko, 1 DQ and 1 RTD), although the opponents weren't exactly big names (Tom Little, Kash Ali and Dave Allen) .

One other thing to consider, Whyte hurt Chisora quite easily in their second fight, with a nothing punch in the first round, which makes me think Chisora might have lost a lot of punch resistance. So Price definitely has a punchers chance given how he apparently hits real hard. But his chin is totally cracked and any clean combinations landed will likely result in Price getting dropped/ stopped.

Would have preferred Chisora to face Michael Hunter, personally.


5.) 08 Oct 2019 17:46:05
3 rounds if lucky.


6.) 08 Oct 2019 18:35:18
It might be a good scrap but it should be Saturday fight night. Ted cheeseman fighting next week, chisora vs price should be headlining that bill not chief support on a ppv bill. Used to get good fights on Saturday fight night now we get ted cheeseman twice a year and nexgen boxing and that's it.


7.) 11 Oct 2019 03:06:29
No chance it should headline over a world title fight.

He has unfortunately passed away. Rest in Peace.

3 deaths this year, this is quite worrying.

{Ed025's Note - very worrying hsf..

Have only watched the highlights but Usyk just looked like he was in a sparring session. Never got going and just did his basics. I would imagine that was down to probably not knowing who Chazz Weatherspoon is - much like the rest of us.

Saying there are no glamour fights or superstars in this era is such a naive statement.
The Heavyweight division is the most competitve it's been since the 90s, as there are 6 big names all vying for the belts - Joshua, Fury, Whyte, Wilder, Usyk and now Ruiz jr. Personally I think that will end up with Fury vs Usyk for the #1 spot.
The middle/ supermiddle weight divisions are looking pretty solid too. I put these two together as fighters in these divisions are open to bouncing between the two. But you've got Canelo, Golovkin, Andrade and Jacobs in the middleweight division, plus Callum Smith, Billy-Joe Saunders, Benavidez and I guess you can throw Eubank jr in there too - as he is a fairly big draw. The only one from this list I expect to move up permanently is Smith.

Welterweight has a few big names, although some of them are degrading in both skillset and stature. Crawford, Spence (hopefully he recovers), Pacquiao, Danny Garcia and Shawn Porter.

Lightweight is not bad with Lomachenko, Luke Campbell, Commey, Lee Selby and Mikey Garcia.

Also there is Inuoe, who I expect will go through some of the weight divisions, he's currently a Bantamweight and is living up to his alias of The Monster.

One thing we have to remember, is just because they're not superstars in Britain, doesn't mean they're not superstars elsewhere. Inuoe is massive in Japan for example, and Pacquiao is still a huge draw in Asia.
