Boxing
 
Any boxing fans in here? Anybody watching the Wright vs Taylor fight tonight? If so, what are your opinions?

I feel if Winky didn't win, it shoulda been a tie...which was the outcome. So I guess I agree to a point. Winky should've fought in the last round. He of all people know how the judging is in boxing...you can't take off any rounds especially if you aren't champion. They will always give close rounds to the champ.

That's crazy since you and Taylor are from Arkansas. I woulda thought you'd defend Taylor but good on you for seein it objectively.

I love to watch boxing Taylor is good and could of beat Winky if he stayed in the middle of the ring and feed him jabs. I think Winky being a left handed boxer had more to do with it than anything

IMO, while Winky did out box him, but those power punches by Taylor were doing as much damage as Wrights corner fluries. A draw sounds about right to me. Rematch will be fun to watch.

ARKIE, nice to see I have a fellow boxing fan. :smile:

i'm a semi boxing fan. i enjoy boxing when the boxers are just going at each other with no defense lol. winky is a very boring person to watch box, block jab block jab block jab. i didn't see this fight though so i dont' know if he changed his boring ways.
