    They were going hard if someone is gassing in sparring that means they are going harder than 50 percent, most sparring is working on timing and strategy

    But Fonfara was trying to bring it to Diaz, probably thinking he would beat up on a UFC guy but it backfired and Diaz didnt back down, and pushed Fonfara back.

    Did you know that Larry Holmes was getting the better of Ali in sparring before beating him in a real boxing match?

    come man King Mo was just hyping Toney up, and he said Toney suffocated him with his huge belly he said his weight was something he never felt

    But Diaz really does bang with pro and amateur boxers on the regular.

    Nate is legit

    thank you

    anytime Khan's name is mentioned i need to watch this gif.

    dunno why but i got a strong dislike for the guy

    I disagree, maybe 2 rounds before the KO Khan was slowing down and getting hit with more body shots. Starting to get broken down.

    I find this hard to believe. Fonfara is a top 15-20 fighter. He beat the fucking shit out of Chavez jr and nearly came back and finished Adonis Stevenson late in their first fight. He gets stronger as the fight goes.

    Yeah, but did he drop him with a body shot?

    Seriously though, if Diaz is so good at boxing why is he fuckin with MMA.

    He's just not a well-rounded fighter which leaves openings to where you can beat him. What he does do well though, he really excels at as much as anyone. Not to mention, people don't take into account he's fought in the UFC his entire career. Most MMA fighters don't, and their record is better off for it. Nate hasn't even been fighting in his prime, but even still he has been in the top 5 multiple times in the toughest division in MMA, and that's before he even fought Conor. Most of the guys he's lost to are former champions, and a handful of top guys himself.

    I've seen an excuse for legitimately every one of Conor's million wins, and this is just another poor one.

    He used to only cover basketball, but one day he heard about some guy named Manny Pacquiao in 2007 when he moved to Hollywood and he went down to cover his training camp, Elie said he never followed boxing before but when he interview Manny Pacquiao he put the video on his youtube and within two days it had over 300k views more than his Kobe Bryant interview, and he earned some money off it, so since that day he covered boxing because he found out its a niche and he could make money

    but he doesnt care for the sport after over 10 years covering it he still has no clue about boxing or boxing history the guy just dishes out multiple videos a day to earn money off adsense.
