      Yet, it is as great as the Four Kings era of the 1980s.
      Does it involve Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns and Roberto Duran?

        No, Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, and Duran happened in the 80s.

        The group of rivals I'm referring to is Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales, Manny Pacquiao, and Juan Manuel Marquez.

        Their rivalry started in 2000 with Barrera-Morales I. It will probably end with Pacquiao-Marquez V. Between 2000 to now, these guys all fought each other — mostly multiple times.

        Every fight was significant. Every fight was historic. When we look back at this era, it will be seen as the golden age of the featherweights.

        Of course, my book chronicles the entire history starting with the fight that was the precursor to everything: Marco Antonio Barrera vs. Junior Jones.

          Except that JMM seems to be ducking a fifth fight with Pacquiao at the moment.

            There's more to the story than "ducking".

            Marquez wants a title. Bradley has one. Pacquiao doesn't.

            In the meantime, Pacquiao's probably taking a tune-up with Mike Alvarado — which is a good thing since Pacquiao's coming off a KO loss.

            If all goes according to plan, believe me, a title will be at stake for Pacquiao-Marquez V. If not, I'm happy with the whole story ending with Pacquiao-Marquez IV.

              Very interesting!

              And so many other good fighters in the mix or passing through on the way up or down: Casamayor, Kelly, Ayala, Tapia, Hamed, Juan Diaz, Rocky Juarez, Solis, Norwood.

              You should have a lot of interesting material. Let us know how it goes.

                Doh, my bad. I somehow misread and mixed up the numbers in your post.


                Anyway, keep us updated with the book, mate.

                  I think Boxing is super simple, when I was training boxing I found that over thinking and complicating things like angels, footwork, and measurement was a waste of time. I believe these things come naturally after a while.

                    Only a beginner would still say any of those things were a "waste of time."

                      Fake is on the money, here, except that I do think that Hashiramas was right that over-thinking a lot about angels while boxing is a waste of time.

                      For example, whenever Oscar de la Hoya gets too caught up while sparring trying to figure out which of the four faces each cherub is said to have in Ezekial, Book I, is supposed to be facing the Mercy Seat in the golden figures of the cherubim Moses was told to place atop the Ark of the Covenant in Exodus, Book XXV, Canelo Alvarez (his sparring partner) really makes him pay for it.

                      And I think we all remember with a lump in our throat how the great Joe Louis's final fight, against Rocky Marciano, was tainted by their bitter running dispute in the ring over Descartes's speculation that an angel's mind might be directly aware of the physical states of its body caused by external objects rather than having sensory images as we do.

                        Sorry guys IMHO boxing is not as simple as it appears to be. Just too many variables. Duck and move. Slip and counter. Rope a dope. Keep your distance with your jab then attack. Throw a strait right then left hook to the head or body. So many options not just left to muscle memory.

                          Consider too, the infamous bout between Foucault and Sarte, when Michel argued that the depiction of insanity in the arts was humanity's method of expressing its division between its actual state, and its desired state, and Sarte responded by punching him in the dick.

                              This is the subject of the novel "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco. The "Pendulum" of the title is, in fact Foucaults cock. It's a cracking read.

                                Not really Germaine to this thread. Boxing does involve strategy perhaps not as much as much as BJJ still strategy none the less. I do love a good boxing match as much as any of the fighting arts. Do you?
