    Hoop Dreams 2 was good and has a way better ending. But it doesn't compare to the 1st. That saxophone music too epic. Lmao

    Benji at 16 would legitimately get playing time in modern NBA

    I haven't really ever been particularly confident in picking the winner of the rematch at any point since the first fight. They both have a lot of things that they could improve upon from the first fight. Fury could've been a fair bit more active if he wanted to win with any emphasis (and Wilder is always their to be hit and perhaps even hurt) and Wilder could've made a concerted effort to stick to his gameplan (staying on the jab and body work) if he wanted to have a better chance of landing his big right hand. I lean very slightly towards Wilder, but this certainly isn't a fight that I'll be confident in betting on.

    One of the great things about the matchup is that even if it's a low action fight (as the first one definitely was), there will intrigue until the final bell because of what happened last time due to Wilder's great ace in the hole.

    You know Gary Russell Jr? He's one of six brothers named 'Gary' and one of four that are 'Gary Russell' with different middle names. They're the only family in history to have four brothers win national Golden Gloves titles and they did it in four different divisions. I want to say that three of them were Olympians, too.
    He looks leaner than usual there. Nice.

    I knew he had a successful boxing family, but I didn't know all of that.

    None of their heads are as big as Jr's though

    He must be the favorite or something

    I'm pretty sure the family patriarch gets the most durable head so...

    Wait...


    So they're all technically Gary jr...

    But is Gary Jr the only one known as only Gary Jr?

    There's gotta be some type of % of Gary Russell jr royalties Showtime and Al Haymon pay to.the other Gary jrs?

    The four Gary Russell brothers are Gary Jr. (the one we all know, the most well-known), Gary Antonio, Gary Allan III, and Gary Antuanne. They all have different middle names and/or suffixes to allow us to differentiate them.

    That's somehow left me more confused.

    So technically they're not a Gary jr?

    There's only one Junior. The rest either have different middle names or different suffixes (e.g., Jr, the third, and so on).

    I feel like this just....isn't how names work


    He's naming his kids like a Beethoven piece....i don't get what the affect is supposed to be.

    What is the artistic message?

    I guess to make the names sound more like royalty like kings with the same name but with different suffixes/titles to distinguish them. It's strange but evidently Tyson Fury had the same idea when naming all of his sons 'Prince'.
