  • Who would win this heavyweight boxing match: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson vs “Iron” Mike Tyson?

    Let’s say a 10 round fight. Oh and this is both fighters as they are today so none of that “in their primes”

  • I'n Boxing, what happens in a draw? (read description)?

    Best answer: OK so in your scenario the championship belt being contested already belongs to someone, that is to say a fighter is the champion and is making a defence of his crown. Then yes, in the case of a draw the champion retains his title and yes you could say that this implies he won even though he didn't. Think of... show more
    Best answer: OK so in your scenario the championship belt being contested already belongs to someone, that is to say a fighter is the champion and is making a defence of his crown.

    Then yes, in the case of a draw the champion retains his title and yes you could say that this implies he won even though he didn't.

    Think of it this way though. If a fighter has a belt going into the ring and he doesn't lose the fight why should he lose his belt? It makes perfect sense that he wouldn't, the challenger has to win the fight in order to win the belt, anything less isn't enough.

    Currently the only exception to this are fights which take place within the World Boxing Super Series. Because that's a tournament, if the 3 judges have the fight even after 12 rounds there are contingency measures in place to ensure that the fighters are separated and a winner is eventually declared on the night so that the tournament can continue without the need for a rematch but in normal circumstances a draw is declared and both fighters leave with what they came in with so if each fighter had a belt each they would still have a belt each after the fight if it was declared a draw.

  • Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder winner prediction?

    Best answer: That depends on when they fight but assuming it's next then Fury's getting knocked out inside 8 but to be fair I'd pick Wilder to knock Fury out regardless of when they fight but I EXPECT Wilder to take him out if they fight next. REASONING: As you know Fury has been out of the ring for almost 3 years... show more
    Best answer: That depends on when they fight but assuming it's next then Fury's getting knocked out inside 8 but to be fair I'd pick Wilder to knock Fury out regardless of when they fight but I EXPECT Wilder to take him out if they fight next.

    REASONING:
    As you know Fury has been out of the ring for almost 3 years and since he came back has had just 2 "fights", the first one was a joke and then he went the distance with Pianeta, a guy who a washed up Kevin Johnson knocked out last year. In fact, of his last 7 fights going into the Fury one he'd been knocked out 6 times but he went 10 rounds reasonably comfortably with Fury.

    But here's the bigger issue and it's one not often covered. How good is Fury? Everyone rightly gave him credit for dethroning Klitschko in Dussledorf but I thought Klitschko nicked it (because Fury was deducted a point otherwise a draw on my card) but even accepting the official verdict what does it tell us about Fury? When Cunningham dropped him he got up and turned the fight around but if Wilder hit Fury with the same shot he wouldn't have beaten the count.

    He got a gift of a decision early in his career, he's been dropped twice by smaller men, he hasn't knocked out anyone decent and Klitschko was his only competitive fight before the first bell.

    Wilder on the other hand has bombed out every opponent he's ever faced, Ortiz and Stiverne are better than anyone's Fury's faced apart from Klitschko and actually if the Klitschko who turned up for Joshua turned up for Fury, Fury would have lost anyway.

    If Fury had exactly the same resume as he has now but minus Klitschko and was fighting Wilder next, no one would give him a hope.

    Wilder by KO, punches too hard, is too fast and too unorthodox and Fury is far from his best. Whilst Wilder's been living life in the gym, Fury's been in the nightclubs getting off his face, if he beats Wilder in his third fight back after 3 years off doing drugs and drinking beer I'll find him myself and shake his hand.

  • What do you think would have happened had Mayweather fought Pacquiao in 2010 instead of 2015?

    Best answer: It would have been much more competitive (and better for Floyd's career legacy), but I still think Floyd's style would have been good enough to counter Manny. A closer decision win in my opinion.

    Im 14 and am really interested in boxing, may Thai and MMA. Last year I did Muay Thai for a bit but left due to the distance and a lack of time. Recently I have gotten a lot of this time back and have been looking to start doing boxing. The problem is I'm not very strong and am a little bit overweight. I know these will improve a bit if I do boxing but if I work hard and do it for a long time will I become considerably stronger? By working hard will I be able to compete against people how are naturally better at the sport?

  • Keyshawn Johnson Says Jameis Winston is Mentally Unbalanced.?

    Best answer: I'm looking at Winston's stats for his 3 years in the league and they're not awful. 60.8% completion rate. 258 yards per game. 69 touchdown passes. He's played almost as well as Marcus Mariota. Then I look at the 44 picks in 45 games, the Bucs' 18-27 mark in games that Winston has started,... show more
    Best answer: I'm looking at Winston's stats for his 3 years in the league and they're not awful.

    60.8% completion rate.
    258 yards per game.
    69 touchdown passes.

    He's played almost as well as Marcus Mariota.

    Then I look at the 44 picks in 45 games, the Bucs' 18-27 mark in games that Winston has started, and the weird behavior he's exhibited and I think that maybe this guy doesn't belong in the NFL.
    Playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right, and Winston forfeited his chance by acting out in college. I said it when he was drafted and I say it again now: Winston does not belong in the NFL. He's a subhuman piece of sh!t who belongs in a cage.
    That said, Tampa Bay won't cut him because the franchise is run by morons.
