No knockdown in round 9. Too bad Martinez had knees made out of glass in this fight. It was easy to tell that his knees were giving him problems with his lateral movement. Make no mistake Cotto did a good job, but this wasn't Sergio at his best.

Agreed, don't you find it annoying when people score rounds like that ninth by 10-8

Definitely. I have nothing against albertocastany for scoring it 10-8, although I disagree with it, I believe he is a good scorer regardless. I guess the common consensus is that since the judges have to mark it 10-8 then we do to. That's wrong I think because I believe it takes away part of the whole purpose of this website and that's to post your opinion. Again though as I have said before different intelligent opinions (notice the intelligent) opinions are what make boxing so great.

While we're in conversation mode I feel like it's been a while since we discussed something other than boxing. I'm curious Johnny but do you have a girlfriend? If you don't its all good because they usually take up a lot of money. Unless your me and thinks of the cheapest and sometimes dates that require no money at all. Not that I'm cheap but I just can't afford to buy things on people like I used to with the gym being fairly expensive gas and food that I buy. My family doesn't have a lot of money.

Speaking of gas, do you have your own car? Like before its cool if you don't, I myself usually find myself sharing my dad's 2001 Ford Mustang which is cool. Cars are pretty expensive nowadays though.

To go back to boxing what are your thoughts on Golovkin vs Cotto? Many people see Golovkin winning that one but I disagree. Personally I believe its just a matter of time before the right kind of boxer exposes GGG and really his defence isn't that great and I believe that Cotto has the tools to win. I sort of picture an Evander Hollyfield vs Tyson like fight with Cotto getting the decision. What are your thoughts on that fight?

To be honest I'm quite stubborn when it comes to boxing and nobody is ever going to convince me that that round is a 10-8 round, I suppose opinions are what makes boxing so great but only when those opinions are all justifiable.

At the moment I don't have a girlfriend, for no other reason that I haven't found the right girl yet. I've been in that situation loads of times when you talk to a girl, maybe flirt with her a little and then she ends the conversation with talking about her boyfriend, the last time I was in a relationship was high school. I don't have a car yet but I have a driving lesson in a couple of hours. Hope you don't mind me asking but you say your family doesn't have much money but are you in trouble or just underpaid. I have a lot to say about this topic as my family has always done a lot for charity, my dad works for a company that gives furniture to poor people, I used to sell stuff at school, I nearly got expelled and I had no idea what to do with the money so it went to charity in the end.

Finally somebody sees it, I have said before that Daniel Geale was able to hit GGG whenever he threw and he was doing a good job of making him miss, fighters like Gabe Rosado only lost because of cuts and GGG can't get a fight against somebody who can really test him, I definitely think we could both make a lot of money out of that fight , Cotto to win.

No doubt about it. The deal is with my family's money situation is that my dad is currently looking for a job and my mother is the main money provider. Often times however that isn't enough though and often she has to get money out of my account to get by. Things are looking a little better though as the other day my old man got a call about some sort of broadcasting job. I'm honestly not sure what it is, but I hope he gets it.

Its all cool with the girl, at least your putting yourself out there. I see so many guys not have the balls to at least confront a girl and I hear so many excuses as to why they won't. "She's not that hot" "I just get nervous y know" "I think they're dating, yeah their definitely dating" I bet all of those sound familiar. It really is all just about confidence and I feel like that applies to both girls and boxing.

Since we are on the topic of boxing matchmaking what are your thoughts on a GGG vs Canelo matchup? I think GGG would win a close decision on that one except for one ridiculous judge that scores it widely for Canelo. Also how about a rematch between Porter and Brook? I think the first fight was much closer than most people suggest and I think Porter would do much better in the rematch; I got to go with Porter in a debatable decision. Let's see theres Stevenson vs Hopkins. Personally I don't think Stevenson is quick enough to hang with B Hop, sure he's powerful and sharp, but he also has a jaw made out of tin foil and not much in the way of slickness. I think B Hop would stun Stevenson early and outwork him for the majority of the match to earn a decisive decision. I'm sure there's plenty of other matches but those are the ones that are coming to me right now. What are your thoughts on these? I'd also be interested to hear in what other matches you think would be interesting to see as you like boxing more than anyone else I can think of on this site.

Sorry this reply took so long bro, those spammers somehow blocked this site once again

I have some very strong opinions about money, I believe that the government are bastards and give lazy people potfuls of money whilst they give little to the people who work their asses off day in day out trying to provide for their families. I think a person like Mayweather who gets $130,000,000 per year should be made to give a considerable amount of money to those who need it. I used to sell stuff at school, made a whole load of money from it and chose to give it to charity, people asked me "are you crazy?" but I still think I made the right decision.

To be honest I have never had any trouble talking to girls, I used to be overconfident if anything, funny story about how I got with my girlfriend a few years back. I think that most girls prefer guys who make them laugh over guys with good looks. I just don't want to make a mistake by rushing into anything, I suppose confidence can be an issue for some people. I have heard all those excuses before and think nothing of them. One mistake I have seen other people make is going for a girl who is hot but a right bitch for only the reason of popularity.

I don't think much of GGG vs Canelo. I think Porter vs Brook 2 is a good idea but it isn't likely to happen because Kell is really making it clear how much he wants to fight Amir Khan and the British fans are dying to see that fight. I think that Devon Alexander is very overrated and is easy work for Khan. To be honest I think nobody thinks about Hopkins vs Stevenson now that the Hopkins vs Kovolev fight is on, maybe I'm wrong about the prediction but I seriously think Hopkins will beat Kovolev. What do you think about Thurman vs Bundu, I think a fifth round KO for Thurman, Leonard Bundu reminds me of Beibut Shumenov
alot, they share the same attributes as they both have outstanding stamina, good hand speed, a good chin and a lot of heart. They both have one hard punch, Shumenov with his hard left hook upstairs and Bundu with business 'chopped liver with Bundu hot sauce. They both lack defense, a jab and brains. I think so far unbeaten Bundu will be exposed at a high level against Thurman much like what happened to Shumenov against Hopkins. What are you're thoughts on Cleverly vs Bellew?

Another thing you may agree with is that people are flawed in their logic when they suggest Golovkin has overrated power but very good boxing skills, I think he is a devastating puncher but has poor defense and isn't that quick which is why I think Murray has a very good chance of causing an upset.
