    Sometimes it is good to have friends that are honest enough to tell you "that is a terrible idea"

    Whoever runs these promotions clearly doesn't have honest friends.

    Oscar is such a fucking doorknob

    He was supposed to fight Vitor, but he "catches" covid

    Then Vitor goes on to KO a 60 year old EHF

    Oscar response to Vitor winning? Nothing, he just calls out Floyd out of the blue

    And I don't even think hes scared of Vitor, hes just a crackhead

    Get this, I think it was one week after the fight and he said was something along these lines, it was pretty obvious I would kill Vitor based on what i saw, I think everything thinks the same thing. so gimme floyd???????

    {<doc}

    Thats the thing with these diva boxers, the contracts have so many clauses

    Oscar got covid, avoided the fight, and now wants to fight someone else

    To be completely fair, Vitor boxing DLH would have been an absolute joke. Oscar was probably doing tons of blow taking the fight, had a moment of sobriety and thought about how stupid it would look on his record ala Floyd taking these money fights with idiots like Conor and the youtube guy.

    I don't think it is reasonable to assume that Oscar has any concern whatsoever for "how stupid it would look" regarding any decisions he makes, based on:

    - His Thriller commentary while clearly high as a weather balloon.

    - His cross dressing photos

    When it comes to on the record boxing related stuff though. That's history. His outside the ring shit who cares, its not like he's hurting anyone.

    Listening to Wheelock I think they did a good job mixing the two sports stand-up wise. Put thought into it. You can control the clinch position, which I think lacks in boxing anyway, they break it up too soon, prevent inside boxing. And elbows would mean another stand-up art.

    So how this translates to who having the advantage? The boxer. He's got better hands, and this is hands only. Dirty boxing only means constantly having to close the gap, at range the world level boxer will have the edge. Over/under, wrestling clinch position defense is much faster to learn than top level boxing.

    I'm not even sure we disagree here.

    Let me phrase it differently.

    Oscar has "fuck you money" and can carry on however he wants without regard for how other people perceive him.

    He also has probably got enough yes men types in his entourage to convince him his ideas are good regardless of public perception.

    I maintain that his behavior at Thriller is not supportive of a hypothesis that he is concerned with looking stupid.

    Yeah I think we agree on that. But I think he had better sense at some point to limit making an ass of himself to stuff not in the boxing ring as his legacy is pretty epic there. He saw everything going on with the fucking clown circus of mayweather boxing scrubs like conor and the paul kid and was like hey I can get on board with this for free money, then thought better of it when he sobered up for a second.

    lol damn. I’ve never seen that pic of Oscar. A few other ones.

    this event is going to look like hockey fights and favor the mma guys as it’s will be clinching and punching. Holding and hitting something boxers are penalized for and is apart of muscle memory.

    I’ll be watching this shit show though and am looking forward to it

    what happened to vitor?

    That triangle ring is gonna be interesting, imagine an MMA fighter luring a boxer into the corner of that ring by backing up into it, then clinching and spinning the boxer around so that the boxer ends up in the corner..lots of potential here for interesting corner traps with that clinching rule in effect..

    definetly worth 19.99.,..anytime a new promotion with wacky rules and a stacked card comes around it's a good idea to buy it because you are witnesing freakshow history

    You forgot about Golden Boy MMA! Can’t believe I thought they would actually have more than one show.

    From what I heard it's basically boxing but more clinch fighting being allowed. Still it's way closer to boxing than MMA.
