As for your proposed bet, are you going to give me 9 to 1 odds? :mozilla_wink: If not, you're not really standing behind your "Khan's got a 90% chance of winning" statement.


Andy Lee was interviewed by Steve Bunce on BoxNation. Ergo my statement.

I'll bet you on equal odds. Hell, let's make it £100. :mozilla_money:

So you truly think it's a 50/50 fight and that Garcia is at least Khan's equal. Hence my point that saying that Khan would win 9 out of 10 times was an emotional response, not a rational one. It's funny how money puts things into perspective, isn't it? :mozilla_money:

Right, so me putting money on the line furthers your point that I'm unconfident?

How? Go on, elaborate.

By the way, Andy Lee and Manny Steward.

Head to 3 minutes. Note how Andy tells Steve Wladimir is Manny's "Priority". And that he's being trained by someone else as Manny carries out his role as a TV pundit. Debating you such is fun. I hand your ass to you time and again. Yet you always come back for more.

You're 50% confident, not 90% confident. You don't really believe that Khan would win 9 out of 10 times, as evidenced by offering only 50-50 odds. My argument is that 90-10 odds are ridiculous and your refusal to put your money where your mouth is proves that when push comes to shove you agree with me.

The whole Andy Lee thing is an aside to the discussion and not the central focus, so I really wasn't making a real argument other than I doubt he would be elite, even if Manny Steward paid him more attention. The reason Wladamir gets priority is because he's better. However, I know you like each conversation to have a declared winner (usually as judged by yourself, btw), so I'll concede you the win on this one.

As for handing me my ass, I think anyone rationally (there's that word again) reading this from the outside would think otherwise. You're feeling backed into a corner and starting to cross over into non-relevant personal attacks as is your habit (who cares if someone is selling protein in his signature, it has nothing to do with the discussion). I've been down that road with you before and am uninterested in doing so again, so I'll bid this conversation adieu.

Y'know, I actually never bet. I don't even play the lottery. So the odds are irrelevant. On the other hand, the idea that I'd bet £100 on a 50/50 bet is laughable.

As for the personals. I'm just having a craic. :mozilla_wink:

You'll notice that he ultimately picked Khan to win, but the reason why he thought Garcia stood a good chance is the exact reason why Garcia won.



Khan needs to make some serious changes to his style going forward (he'll need to become safer and more boring) as he doesn't have the defense and, more importantly, the punch resistance to continue fighting the way he does.



Man, this guy, Breadman Edwards, is a fantastic analyst! I've never heard of him before. I'll have to watch his other posts. Very impressed :clap: .

Yeah, I like this guy too. Max Kellerman's my favourite analyst though. I also like Bernstein and Jim Lampley. Infact US commentator's are often better than their British counterparts.

Analyst's I dislike include John Rawling. I'd be curious to know Rawling's background. He's never struck me as being knowledgeable despite making brash statements that he never appears to substantiate.

Khan started fast and clearly won the rounds but Garcia did not looked at all bothered by Khans punches (khan has over rated power). It was not a lucky punch, Garcia counterd him hard a couple of times in the second round (one of which I thought hurt Khan). Even when Khan was on top I could see this happening.

I like Max Kellerman as well. He's an encyclopedia of boxing info, but he doesn't have Breadman's eyes for breaking down the technical aspects of boxing. He's an up and coming trainer whom I expect will become quite successful over the next several years. If you read his fight predictions it's uncanny how often he picks not only who will win but HOW the fight will go. I guess that's how he got the nickname Breadman.

Bernstein's good too. I like Lampley's voice and the way he articulates his commentary. However, he's often very biased which I find bothersome.
