Does anybody know what time the Calzaghe vs. Hopkins fight is scheduled to start? Undecided as to stay up and watch it or catch the replays. Get the feeling Ill miss it live and it'll turn out to be a good fight.
Scheduled to start at 4am last time I checked. They're generally late though, so could be anytime after that I expect.
I'm kinda in the same dilemma >.<
Its 4am but will probably linger to 4.30ish
i hope calzaghe knocks the racist idiot out
A lot of the pre-fight build up is to drum up interest or psyche out the opposition. Any thing goes really. Tyson notoriously made the 'i'll eat your kids comment'...lots of boxers use the media as a weapon they're frightened/apprehensive. B'Hop is one crazy mofo, but I don't know about racist. Only yesterday he was ****ging of Joe's dad, Enzo.
Its mind games... I wonder what will go on in the weigh-in. Tyson was known to get bums on seats using all his crazy antics, it worked.
I need to get some sleep for the late night drinking tomorrow - beer and boxing, what more could you ask for?
I really see no danger of Joe being knocked down by Hopkins, he's naturally smaller than Joe and his workrate lower. He got taken to the distance by Howard Eastman! That was probably one of the most boring fights I've seen him in. The result of this match-up really depends on whether or not Hopkins has any success with counter-punching. I hope it's not a chess match because Joe needs to win convincingly and so needs to hold centre ring and push the pace.
yeh the white jokes were lame on the Fresh Prince, but that was somewhat funny in the early 90s...
I remember one of Philip's lawyer friends says: "You can call me Whitey" (referring to his surname)
*followed by a two second silence and canned laughter!
haha yeah that party they had. Vivian looked shocked.
I'm hoping Joe doesn't get careless and leave himself open tonight. If he starts opening himself up and missing he'll only get punished by hopkins.
Sticks to his gameplan though and he'll win it in the 9th
Bit off topic but feel as if I shouldn't miss the fight tonight, and so I'm thinking about subscribing to Setanta. I was filling everything in on their site when I realised they charge you £15 as part of a 'connection' fee, which is annoying. The thing is, theres other stuff on there too, prem footy on in about half an hour as well, so I'm kinda tempted. What do you guys think, worth it?
