Great fight by Danny last night! Way to combine style, power, technique, heady strategy, and toughness all together. That's the essence of a Philadelphia fighter. All of the critics said he couldn't withstand Matthyse's power, but he stood toe to toe with him and took Matthyse's best shots on his chin. Congratulations, Danny G! Way to rep Philly!

He made a believer out of me when he beat Zab Judah. LOL! I don`t think you will find many boxing fans on here.

I'm a boxing fan, but there's something about Garcia that's unappealing ... maybe his father needs to stop being a big mouth. Or maybe he himself needs to stop talking about being disrespected.
It's a shame, because I should like Garcia, being from Philly and all, but I feel the same about Bernard Hopkins - just not likable.

Did he rematch Amir Khan yet? He did knock him out, but I still want to see them go again.

They didn't rematch yet. Amir Khan is a good fighter but he has a glass jaw.

You say what you want about Bernard, but he was one of the first to speak out about crooked promoters . That's why Don King and Duva don't have a hold on the game anymore. At 48 ,he just beat the crap out of a 25yr and took his title.

No doubt he's a great fighter, and what he's doing at his age is remarkable, but still, he isn't very likable. Kudos to the man for standing up to King and Duva, but he should let the thing with Donovan McNabb go already, it makes him look bad.
