  1. The Boxing Thread

    So Canelo has tested positive for a banned substance ahead of the rematch with GGG. Golden Boy are claiming it's from meat in Mexico but it's all a little suspect to me. It's also the same substance that got Lucas Browne and a few other boxers banned, so we'll see if the same rules are applied here. I doubt it very much since Alvarez appears to be untouchable.

    Well another very unconvincing win by Wilder. I was quite impressed with his chin but he just looks awful to me. Still, he beat a tough opponent.

    Ortiz is looking sharp for a man who is clearly 50!

    It's such a shame that Ortiz is a drug cheat. I used too be a fan of his and I think he's got talent, but failing two drug tests is pretty indefensible. I can't stand Wilder as a boxer and he's got one of the most padded records in boxing, but if he wins this comfortably he has to be taken seriously I suppose. I still think his technique (or lack of it) is horrible to watch though.

    Yes! The whole film is filled with awesome dialogue.

    Totally agree, it's amazing television with some mesmerising performances. I also like Alfred Molina as Robert Aldrich. The entire story is incredible and from what I understand, mostly accurate too.

    I hear what you're saying and I agree to an extent, but at the same time, what we saw in that fight was one of the finest pure boxers in the world almost completely fail to connect with a single punch in the entire fight. Rigondeaux is an incredible fighter with immense hand speed and accuracy, and he just couldn't compete with Lomachenko at all. In this instance, I don't think the size difference was really significant, especially considering that out of the two of them, Rigo is the more dangerous puncher. I really do believe Lomachenko is just that good and his foot work is on another level. He looks a class above anyone else I can think of at the moment, including Golovkin, Garcia and Crawford.

    Yup. I’d love to see him fight Mikey Garcia. Here’s a great demonstration of his genius. He’s making a phenomenal fighter look very ordinary.
  9. The Boxing Thread

    He certainly is. I think it's safe to say he's now Pound for Pound number 1 and I reckon the Lomachenko we saw last night would beat anyone at 130, including Mayweather. Very disappointed in Rigondeaux though. Incredible talent but maybe he doesn't have the heart anymore. DeGale was awful last night too. I've not been impressed with him in his last couple of fights.

    Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux in a few hours. This has the potential to be an all time classic fight, despite Rigondeaux's tendency to stink up fights in the later rounds. Two of the best purest boxers around and both have two gold medals and incredible amateur records. I've got Lomachenko by points, but this could go either way.
  11. I was going to leave the skipping challenge, but I couldn't bring myself to be one moon short of club membership!
  12. So that's it. I've got all coins, all costumes and every moon except for skipping rope and beach volley ball, which I'm really not sure I can be arsed with as they're both so tedious. What an incredible game. Darker side nearly made me throw my switch out the window, but it was ridiculously gratifying when I finally managed to climb that skyscraper, and I actually felt a bit emotional as I was reaching the top! I didn't think I'd able to appreciate games in this way again, but after Zelda and now Mario, my faith has been fully restored!
  13. The Boxing Thread

    Yeah, Wilder is just an awful professional. No balance at all and really clumsy lunging punches. He also has one of the worst CV's out of any of the champs of his division. I honestly think Joseph Parker would beat him on points.It's also ridiculous that Stiverne was mandatory as he hasn't done anything of note in years.

    Massive thanks, that's great and really helpful. I'll let you know how I get on!
  15. Photography Equipment & Software Thread

    Big thanks @FishyFish. I'm actually looking for two. An SLR (Ideally something that takes manual Minolta MD/MC lenses) and a compact too. I'm looking for full manual control of the SLR and the option of easy shooting for the compact. Budget of around £200 for each, but can pay a bit more for the SLR if need be. I'll definitely check out the link you sent too. Really appreciate the help!
