This Was Sound Fundamentals, Not Home Cookin'

“I am really not buying into the “home cooking” hoopla. I have watched the fight 3 times already and I remain convinced that it was an even fight through the middle to late rounds. Khan clearly won the 12th by being more busy but one got the sense that Petersen was landing the more hurtful shots. I remember Meldrick Taylor landing the quicker punches on Chavez but to quote Richard Steele who was the ref on the scene “every punch landed by Chavez seemed to take some zap out of Taylor”. The same could be said of Peterson's punches on Khan. Khan took some helacious body shots and delivered some himself as well. Khan has great legs and conditioning but has no clue about the art of in fighting and at some stage this will be his undoing (Well, it was his undoing on Saturday night since he lost his titles). The kid needs to learn how to “check” his opponents by holding his ground in the center of the ring and instead of bouncing around taking half steps to each side. I dont think he regressed though. I just think he met a fighter with sound fundamental skills who concentrated on his body work. That's what took the steam out of Khan and made him stay on the ropes for longer than necessary.” —TSS reader “Michaelabil” did his homework, watched Peterson-Khan three times!

“Boxing is full of optical illusions. And I give Money May MAD props for doing a mix of Houdini and Marlin The Magician. Wow! Money May fought a club-fighting-like humbug in “The Cali Ghost.” And a hyped-up B fighter in Canelo. The promotions were grand to get eyeballs and easy impressionable minds behind those PPV screens. Because the live gates didn’t sell out.” –Radam isn’t sold on this being the year of Money May

“It must be said that even a wounded, war torn Martinez is still a more dangerous threat than Canelo for Cotto. The powers that be must be expecting a phenomenal turnout.” —Brown Sugar says that Martinez is a tougher out for Cotto than Canelo
