what a fight!

if most boxing fights were like this, the sport would be just as popular and exciting as mma is becoming.

Now that’s how you fight. I’m looking at you David Haye and Shane Mosley.

bruno thanks so much for posting. I didn’t even know this fight was on and honestly hadn’t heard of the participants but that was BRILLIANT. I’m so keen to see what Kirkland does now. Tell me anyone out there is there a big name for him to face? At 27 and, hopefully, with his trouble behind him he is still young enough to make a real impact in the sport

Floyd Muscle Memory Mayweather if you listen to his interviews he talks of how much he loves his dad but also feared him for so long if he made any mistake in boxing his pops would slap the sh*t out of him; that instilled & honed Floyd Mayweather’s skill into effortlessly muscle memory that had yet to be seen in the history of boxing before Floyd entered the game. He was literally a baby boxer just about every male in his family was a boxer. PAQCRAP FANS PLZ SHUT YOUR GUTS! MANNY TAKE THE TEST!!

As much as people hate boxing nowadays (even I’m a critic sometimes) fights like these I’m sure remind us all about why boxing, the sport of kings, became so popular in the US and in Europe.

I remember when I was 6 I used to get beat up everyday by black kids that were waaay bigger than me. So my mom put me in Karate. I was the only kid there who was actually fighting everyday, so I was the only kid there who totally knew quite soon that karate was B.S. I asked my mom if I could try boxing instead, and my first day I came home with swollen lips, happy as a pig in s***.

Yea it was a great night of fights for me. I watched this fight, the Bute fight and the UFC card. I’ve been a fan of Kirklands for a while now, but he kind of fell off after his stint in prison and his first round tko loss. They were hyping him up as the next challenger for Martinez, but I don’t think he’s ready for him yet, maybe if he wins one of two more dog fights like this one..

Fights and fighters like that make people still love boxing.Not the Floyd Mayweathers of this world who get paid 30 millions a fight but just moves around and occsionally punches people.Travesties like Ortiz vs Mayweather should’nt happen.1 guy blatanlty headbutts the toher guy and the guy counters with a sucker punch…That’s not boxing.Angulo vs Kirkland is boxing.

Smokingdro needs to STFU! Floyd Mayweather Jr. fought guys that had to move up in weight to fight him. Judah, Hatton, and Marquez. He fought a slow Carlos Baldomir an Olden Boy in De La Hoya who intured his left shoulder jabbing, and a past his prime Shane Mosley. Pacquiao has fought lethal fighters like Barrera (2x), Morales (3x), Marquez (2x), Miguel Cotto, and Antonio Margarito who outweighed him by 16 lbs. Floyd, as lethal as he looked in the first three rounds against Victor Ortiz, didn’t prove anything in his last fight since he won with a legal sucker puncher all because Joe “Alzheimer’s” Cortez messed up that whole fight. Just like how Cortez didn’t allow Hatton to fight his fight against Mayweather in 2007. What happened to easy fight easy money sign the fight after Pacquiao beat Cotto? Remember when he said that? What happened Floyd?

@Beast: I know what you are talking about, but bad gyms are bad gyms in any style. I had to go through dozens of different gyms and “masters” to find a couple where people actually learned anything useful. Curiously, the best one that I found was actually a karate one where the teacher would let us do full contact kumite, using grappling techniques and the works. One of the weakest was a boxing gym where the instructor knew nothing about boxing and he only tried to show off to the new kids by beating them up. He got very mad he couldn’t even hit me in the first sparring session. So, it’s not the style, it’s the one who runs the gym that determines its quality.
Anyway, great fight! Once Kirkland saw that the uppercut was landing almost every time, it was just a matter of time.

OK lets be true fans of the sport of boxing not to particular personalty fighters. The record speaks for itself. Manny and Floyd are at top of their game. Manny was trying to prove himself a pound for pound best when Floyd was already proclaimed pound for pound best. Manny has fast powerful hands and blinding straight line exelleration with good defense. Floyd has exceptional hand and foot speed, cat like reflexes,uncanny striking accuraticy outstanding defense, underated strength and he dose not back up in a straight line. It should be an excellent fight regaurdless of who wins but the question should be how will it end. (Puncher/Boxer Vs. Boxer/Puncher) – (Speed Vs. Power) We know mass times speed equates strikiing power.
