    Brian, I would like to comment of your report of the Jhonny Gonzalez vs. Clive Atwell fight. Did you really see the fight? In my opinion, Atwell was robbed by some of the worst refereeing I have see in a very long time. Lance Cole should never be able to referee another fight after what he did in that fight.
    Your comments - "Atwell survived and gave Gonzalez a good workout, if nothing else" and "Atwell was never expected to give the champion much of a test. However, considering his lack of experience and the fact that this was his first bout outside of his native Guyana, he did pretty well to go the distance" shows your bias for Gonzalez and makes me think that you did not see the fight.

    Hey mate, wanted to congratulate you on your accurate predictions in boxing this week(especially Gavin vs Bundu) and last week. I always follow you weekend predictions on boxing and lately you are pretty accurate. One thing which I really like about your style of writing is that you write to the point and take some very simple & small details in consideration which other experts on bleacher and other sites ignore(for example if a fighter has ever been knocked down ever before). Really enjoy your articles, keep writing.

    Brian, great article on the Bulls Rumored trade package. You pointed out all of the same things that I was wondering. I feel that if the trade went through that it would hurt the Bulls more than help the Bulls. Yes Love is a 26 and 12 player, but I thought I saw someplace that had Gibson as a 18 and 12 player if he were a starter? I could be wrong, but am pretty sure I am not. So add in Taj's defense compared to Love's and then factor in the Shooting of McDermott and Merotic's all around game and this trade is a NO BRAINER for the Bulls. DON'T DO IT!

    Now on the flip side if this is just a ploy to get Cleveland to up it's anty on getting Love, then I think it is a good one! Losing Wiggens, Bennett, and 2 first round picks??? I think that is a bad trade for Cleveland as well! If I were the Cavs, I would wait it out and attempt to snag Love next season in free agency, while keeping both players and picks.

    Why has no sports writer (that I have knowledge of) covered the interesting tidbit that Aaron Rodgers was born a few hours fron S.F. and Colin Kapernick was born a few hours from Green Bay?
    Effectively they are going up against their true blood heritage.

    @ Beibut Shumenov vs. Tamas Kovacs: Fight Time, Date, Preview, TV Info and More: Just FYI, the challenger's name is actually Tomáš Kovács since he is, as you noticed correctly, from the Slovak Republic. Never mind that your predictions may be completely wrong as it is, after all, but guesswork. What I was looking for in your article, and that's the missing piece of info, is the time of the match. Could you fix that? Thank you. Note: The message board underneath the article keeps giving me an error message so I'm unable to post a comment there.

    Like your comment about Rigondeaux, it show knowledge and is not biased, you are witnessing one of best boxers in this era, with immaculate technic, and very pro in his bussines. I am very proud of the legacy of the master of Cuban boxing, ''Kid Chocolate'' and Rigondeaux is a standarte of that legacy.

    Read your article and watched your video on the new WWE 2K14 stuff, and I gotta say, you're really damn funny. Any chance that you'll be making more videos on the game when it comes out or something similar?
