While I was watching The Ultimate Fighter finale on Saturday, there were two boxing matches being held in Quebec. Adonis Stevenson stopped Tony Bellew in the 6th round while on the undercard, Sergey Kovalev knocked Ismail Sillakh under the bottom rope in the second round.
Kovalev put Sillakh down with a hard right hand and then followed up ferociously (Mike Tyson voice) and finished him. Continue reading
Earlier today, Carl Froch beat George Groves by 9th round stoppage. The referee stopped the fight even though Groves was winning most of the rounds. In my opinion, it was way early and one of the worst I’ve seen. You can check out the GIF.
Hopefully, there won’t be any referee shenanigans tonight.
Duan and I previewed Manny Pacquiao vs. Brandon Rios last night on FGB Radio. We both feel that if Pacquiao is close to himself, he should clearly beat Rios. But if he’s not, Rios has a shot to do some damage.
Check out our live play by play of the fight: Continue reading
Duan and I had scored the fight clearly for George Groves until the 9th before the referee stopped it. It was really the first time Groves had been in trouble all night and while Froch was picking up steam, Groves deserved much better.

Thank you AWE TV! If not for the great Wealth TV streaming service, I wouldn’t be able to watch King Carl take on George Groves.
It’s a fight that Duan and I talked about last night on FGB Radio and one that Duan has been keeping me aware of since it was signed.
I’ll be adding Duan’s round by round scoring. Continue reading
This is the best 24/7 series in quite a while, and I think that three episodes should now be the norm. By episode four, you usually feel like you’ve seen everything. The conclusion to this series touched on the video we put up early in the week with Alex Ariza kicking Freddie Roach in the chest. Both men came off bad, but Ariza comes off as a terrible human being. HBO left the parts they used unedited so I imagine there could be repercussions.
I thought Brandon Rios came off way more as a likable character than his usual goofball self that you find hard to take seriously. A lot of this is new to him and he seems to be genuinely enjoying the full experience. And Manny looks like he means business.
