IBR on The Cruelest Sport


“The first round set the pattern for the remainder of the fight. Khan, 139 3/4, piled on punches at a rate nearing the Fibonacci sequence. No more running from aggression like he was looking for shelter during an air raid, or clinging to his opponent like a life ring in a shipwreck; Khan stepped just out of Molina’s range after unloading, and in the rare moments when he was pressed against the ropes, he landed quick combinations before sliding away.”

“Undisputed odd man out Timothy Bradley has nearly scuttled his December 15th rematch with Lamont Peterson. A Peterson fight on HBO is the best case scenario for Bradley, who has seen any momentum he gained from beating Manny Pacquiao dissolve in the ether. Commenting on the proposed matchup, however, Bradley said, “I think he’s the only guy available to fight right now, so I’m willing to wait.” Choosing to wait is Bradley’s prerogative, but Godot would arrive before a better opponent than Peterson presents himself.”
