    No, the edit was to fix the link that was going to the forum instead of the front page. Both work fine. It's just the stupid way that SD pipes you to a link beforehand.

    Just like to say we had some pretty shitty matches this weekend. Arreola fight was garbage, Pascal-Dawson fight was also garbage.

    Woah, it's actually well written (and I'm not even much interested in Areola)! I usually skip editorials/articles on boxing because they're mostly terrible. Nice surprice there and well done. Did you write it?

    It's a shame. He needs better work ethic or he will waste his talent.

    arreola is a fat slob, i was rooting for quezada to beat his ass, but i knew he wouldnt be able to. i cant wait until someone his own size fights this fat bastard again and we never have to watch one of his sloppy fights again.

    I don't really get why people don't enjoy watching Arreola fight. Don't get me wrong, I am WELL AWARE of his actual worth as a fighter (as I made mention in the article), but he's worth his hefty weight in heavyweight gold because of his appeal to fans across the USA. The guy is all heart and action and while that doesn't neccessarily equate into a successful and long career, it's sure as hell guaranteed to be an enjoyable ride for most of it.

    And yes, I did write it.If you enjoyed the piece, why not head over to NoBSBoxing.com if you're interested in talking with like minded folks without the bullshit.

    The most frustrating thing about about Chris, to me, is that he might really have the potential to be an elite fighter. He never comes in shape, hes getting older and getting beaten up, and at this point we might never see how good he could have been. It always bothers me when I see fighters blowing their potential.
    If he keeps showing up fat, he definitely isnt getting much farther in his career.

    appeal to fans? Nobody in USA knows who this dude is except hardcore boxing fans and the few who watched his baby cry loss to Klit and were like "wtf" even if he beat Klit still nobody would care since klits are even less known in the US
