Brit Twits Tweet Up Sound & Fury–David Haye vs Tyson Fury

My o my, the standard boxing trashometer has irretrievably crashed, forcing Brits to draft the United States storied NASA space program to design a bullet proof trashometer that can withstand tremendous the G force loads in the black hole vacuum of this English tea and crumpets naughty boys social. That would be David Haye vs Tyson Fury at the Manchester Arena this coming Saturday, September 28th for any wishing to check out the current state of the British heavyweight division.

*** Drat, fight postponed due to Haye cut on the last day of sparring:

The Troll Hunter Internet legend Curtis Woodhouse must be aghast at their soiled lowbrow tweets that coughed up enough bad bile to sink HMS Invincible. It seems such is the new frontier of fight negotiations that made this Dunkirk in waiting possible.

The fight may begger legitmacy after Mr. Haye looks to have added a solid 30 pounds of muscle in the build up compared to his previous lean efforts if this recently published photo is any indication. If any further indications are need for how this fight might pan out, using his recent activity against supersized heavyweights as a template, he scarcely showed up for any more than farcical efforts against Nikoli Valuev and Wlad Klitschko, laughable comes in play. The much maligned Audley Harrison turned him into a pillar of salt for 3 rounds with no more than a threat of throwing a legitimate punch.

The Soliloquy

The Soliloquy

As to Mr. Fury, this could be easy work for him if his still malleable mind can construct enough discipline to box at distance with a steady punch output as he’s shown in the past. Alas, he is a fighter of purest nature at heart, sometimes caught up in the moment of face first leads with the expected downings. However, Mr. Fury is quite fortunate to know in advance that Mr. Haye has bounced off the deck more times than your average toddler’s bowl of jello, not even needing to be hit to accomplish the task. 

Tune in for a look see of the Queen’s finest puerile pugilists this Saturday. Might even see a battle of tweets by the two combatants in between rounds for a first in boxing. We can never know in advance the full extent of any extraneous mayhem when Irish Travelers for Mr. Fury and English Metromen for Mr. Haye mingle in the suds. May be a riot going on, so take care against any flying pints and sharpy brollys in the arena and the car parks!

Danny Green vs BJ Flores, The Barbie Down Under

In Tribute to the Haye vs Harrison @ Handbags English classic riposte staged last Saturday, the Aussies, not to be outdone, they are staging their own Commonwealth special down under tie-me-kangaroo-down-mate classic when Danny The Green Machine Green tops it off against BJ El Peligroso Flores.

Green’s Green Machine ring moniker is spot on with him nearing 38 yrs old with at least a couple of retirements, yet raking in millions in recent fights drawn from a junkyard of rusted out hulks who never fought again.

It follows that BJ, (wonder what his parents were thinking when they hung him with that little jewel?), well, BJ’s ring moniker, El Peligroso, translates to The Danger, with the danger in this case being that Green may add him to his collection of cadavers he keeps.

The Blowout

The Blowout

Oh, I need to amend the above to note that Green did stage a 1st round knockout on the legendary Roy Jones in a disputed fight where Jones claimed Green packed his gloves illegally, but regardless, Jones somehow manages to retain some ranking and is still active, so Jones sorta made himself the exception.

Poor Flores has no such credentials as the former supermiddle and light heavy WBC and WBA champ that Green very briefly was. Green is currently on his 4th defense of his IBO cruiser title now, with all his IBO title fights ending in early knockout.

The only recognizable name on Flores ledger is Darnell Ding-a-Ling Wilson,  a powerful, but inconsistent former contender, a credible win, but otherwise, it’s been a very modest cast of journeymen, winning some minor cruiser belts. The IBO title might qualify minor in some quarters, but it’s a step above anything Flores has won. Oh, and then I guess there’s his own stand in for Roy Jones, a first round demolition of one Ali Supreme, so there it is!

Sounds like a mismatch, eh?

But wait, there’s more! Green has matured into a natural 185 pounder in a 200lb division, and Flores fought the first half of his undefeated, 24-0-1, 15 KO career as a heavyweight before moving to cruiser, so if Green comes in at his normal weight, Flores is likely to be at 210+ lbs in the ring, at least a 25 lb advantage or more. There have been catchweight rumors and financial incentives, so we shall see soon enough.

El Peligroso

Flores is younger too, right in traditional prime years at age 31 with low ring mileage, whereas Green is nearing 38 years. He does look a strong, fit 38 though he has yet to be tested.

But, wait, Flores hasn’t fought in over a rusted year, so is not ranked in many places anymore. Wonder what the sporting odds of him never fighting again after this fight are? We might never see him in the ring again.

Will he get sucked into The Green Machine topsy turvy upside down under parallel boxing world to be  dressed up, waxed, and spit out as Green’s latest addition to his cadaver collection?

Flores should be afraid, very afraid.

Bernard Hopkins was, backing out of an agreed deal with Green after more sober reflection of Green’s dramatic knockout of Jones. Hopkins hopped the greener pastures fence to take on Jones in their all time stinker passed off as their way overripe rematch for easier money.

Flores looks like he’s gonna make the ring march though, and damned if anyone knows what will really happen, or if they do, I sure ain’t in on it, but it’s likely to be dramatic, controversial, and comical theatre wrapped in a ring enigma to be tossed on the barbie. Might be worth the watch if you’re up and about come November 17th, Aussie time.
