Sorry I'm late posting this but the 2 men to KO Roy Jones face each other tonight on HBO! This should be a great fight for boxing fans! Both fighters are in their prime, and riding high after knocking out Roy Jones in their last fights! The program begins in 20 minutes at 9:00pm (EST). However the fight probably won't actually start until 10. This should give some people a chance to see it.

In a fantastic action fight Glencoffe Johnson pulled off a minor upset and defeated Antonio Tarver by decision. The HBO announcing crew felt that Tarver deserved the decision. Personally I felt the fight was razor thin, and could have gone either way! Big win for Johnson, congrats to him!

I think Tarver would've won if he didn't back up and run all fight long. I think they gave it to Johnson because he initiated the action the entire fight. I understand that Tarver is a longer fighter and wants to use his jab...but some of the time he looked like he just wanted to put together a few pitty pat punches and get the hell out of dodge. I was glad that they gave it to Johnson...even though Tarver is the better fighter. If they fight again I think Tarver will make sure he's a lot more willing to stand there.

Running will make you lose 9 times out of 10!

Yup, I second that...and so does Oscar Dela Hoya. It was a good fight though, but it should have been better than it was because one guy was basically chasing the other.
