Ever since the Gennady Golovkin-Kell Brook match was announced, pundits and fans alike have been figuratively digging the Englishmans grave. Marcus Kruger Jersey . A suicide mission, you say? Well, not quite but GGG, the unified middleweight titleholder, has been installed a prohibitive 8-1 favorite to hand Brook, who owns a welterweight belt, his first defeat, if not his head.Fans on the western side of the Atlantic Ocean have done little but ridicule the match from the get-go. They are cock-sure the boxer who calls himself The Special One isnt anywhere near special enough to beat Golovkin. His destiny is preordained. Hes going to be victim No. 36. No doubt about it.But dont expect Brooks ring walk to be accompanied by that old Tom Waits song, Whistling Past the Graveyard. The 30-year-old fighter from Sheffield sounded supremely confident fight week and told the media that he felt like a monster. Lets just hope he wasnt talking about the Cookie Monster.Not everyone in the U.K. is as convinced as Kell that he can pull a Randolph Turpin. The result of a Sky Sports poll favored Golovkin by a surprisingly narrow 54 to 46 percent margin. Nevertheless, you cant help but wonder how many Brook votes were of the wishful-thinking variety.Understandably, the foremost reason Brook is an overwhelming underdog is that hes going up against a man many considered todays finest fighter, pound-for-pound. Theres also been a lot of gibberish about the fact that Brook is a welterweight titleholder challenging a middleweight titlist.Rather than another insurmountable obstruction, however, the history of such matchups is one area where Brook can take solace. Some welterweights have succeeded and some have failed, so lets take a look at some examples and see what light history can shed on Saturdays showdown at Londons sold-out O2 Arena (HBO, 5:30 pm ET).Three who failedCeferino Garcia Draw 10 Henry Armstrong Los Angeles, May 1, 1940The Setup: Armstrong entered the ring at Gilmore Stadium as the reigning world champion of the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight divisions, a unique feat that has never been duplicated. After Joe Louis, he was the biggest star in boxing. He had successfully defended the welterweight title with a competitive decision over Garcia two years prior, and when the Filipino won a version of the middleweight title, Armstrong set his sites on becoming the simultaneous ruler of four weight classes.The Fight: Homicide Hank fought as he always did, applying relentless pressure, head on his opponents chest, digging away like a coal miner. Garcia, who held an 11?-pound advantage, tried to match Armstrong punch-for-punch on the inside but was much more successful when he took a step back and flashed his famous bolo punch. Referee George Blake, the lone arbitrator, called it a draw.The aftermath: The majority of observers thought Armstrong was robbed. The Associated Press, for example, had it 6-2-2 in the challengers favor. Referee Blake, who never worked another fight, raised additional suspicion when he left the ring immediately after the final bell without rendering a decision. How bizarre is that? Later he claimed hed deducted points from Armstrong for low blows and butting, but the rumor persists that Blake also muttered something about Armstrong having enough titles already.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: The whole affair had a weird vibe -- 10 rounds instead of 15, Blakes behavior, the A-side losing a hotly debated decision. If nothing else it reminds us that boxing is an anarchistic endeavor and anything can happen. And dont forget Golovkin-Brook is taking place on Kells home pitch.Gene Fullmer KO 10 Benny Kid Paret Las Vegas, December 9, 1961The Setup: Three months after regaining the welterweight championship from Emile Griffith in a demanding contest, Paret challenged Fullmer, who was making his seventh defense of the middleweight title. It proved a dreadful mistake.The Fight: As was his wont, Paret gave it everything he had but was no match for Fullmer, one of the toughest and roughest middleweights in history and frequently fought like a billy goat. A near-exhausted Paret was floored three times in the 10th round, the final knockdown leaving the Cuban flat on his back for the full count. Unknown to the general public at the time, Benny had been suffering debilitating headaches for some time and, in all likelihood, entered the fight already suffering CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy).The Aftermath: The Fullmer match eerily foreshadowed the tragedy that took place in Parets next fight, when he was battered into a coma in the 12th round of a rubber match with Griffith and never regained consciousness. That was just three months after absorbing a savage beating from Fullmer. Benny was only 25 at the time.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: While boxers put their lives on the line every time they step into the ring, Brook has never taken the sort of pummeling that Paret did in many of his fights. It is, therefore, highly unlikely that Brook would suffer a similar fate. Even so, the risk remains, as we are reminded far too often.Carlos Monzon TKO6 Jose Napoles Puteaux, France, March 9, 1974The Setup: Napoles and Monzon had dominated their respective division for a number of years and by the time they fought their Hall of Fame credentials had already been established. It looked like a great match on paper but quickly turned into rout.The Fight: Napoles simply could not get past Monzons jab and was an easy target for the defending champions chillingly accurate right hand. After taking a steady thrashing for six rounds, the bleeding and dizzy Mexico-based Cuban didnt answer the bell of the seventh. Nobody called him a quitter.The Aftermath: They carried on almost as if nothing had happened. Both continued to enjoy success in their respective weight classes. Napoles called it a career after losing the title to John H. Stracey in December 1975, while Monzon retired still champion following his June 1977 victory against Rodrigo Valdes.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: This was one of the times when size really made a huge difference. Standing 511? with a 76 wingspan, Monzon had a four-inch height and reach advantage. Moreover, at 159? pounds, he was six pounds heavier than his challenger. Brook, however, has reinvented his physique and is looking bigger and fitter than ever. Hes only 1? inches shorter than GGG and if he loses, it wont be because Golovkin is the bigger man.Three who succeededSugar Ray Robinson TKO 13 Jake LaMotta Chicago, June 5, 1951The Setup: Robinson won the welterweight title that had been vacated by Marty Servo (who Ray had already defeated twice in non-title bouts) by outpointing Tommy Bell on Dec. 20, 1946. By August 1950, his sweetness has made five successful defenses but was also fighting middleweights and couldnt wait to get reigning champion LaMotta back in the ring. After all, hed already beaten him in four out of five non-title bouts and was overdue for a title shot.The Fight: Thanks to his Bronx Bull nickname, many contemporary fans think that LaMotta was a one-dimensional brawler. But most of the raging bull stuff took place outside of the ring. In his own way Jake was also a good boxer and in several of the early rounds actually outjabbed Sugar Ray. But when Robinson unloaded a devastating flurry in the 13th round, referee Frank Sikora stopped the fight with a blood-smeared LaMotta swaying on the ropes, out on his feet.The Aftermath: Although Robinson was arguably at his best at welterweight, his most famous fights were at middleweight. He lost and regained the 160-pound championship four more times before retiring in November 1965, his status as the greatest fighter of all time secure long before then.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: Its a prime example of a welterweight champ successfully moving up and claiming the middleweight title from a strong, determined champion.Carmen Basilio W 15 Sugar Ray Robinson Bronx, New York, September 23, 1957The Setup: Basilio had stopped Tony DeMarco in June 1955 to annex the welterweight title and start an incredible streak of being in The Rings Fight of The Year four years running. The second fight in that series was his split decision victory against Robinson.The Fight: The 153?-pound Basilio took the fights to the 160-pound Robinson throughout much of the bout, and although he was repeatedly speared by left jabs as he worked his way inside, he kept coming. At times, especially in the later round, it looked like Sugar Ray might wilt under Basilios unyielding attack. But he always rallied back, and there was little to choose between them at the final bell.The Aftermath: Robinson won the rematch the following year in another sensational Fight of the Year. The decision was split again, and when you get right down to it both fights could have gone either way.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: Neither Basilio nor Robinson was diminished by their loss, and if Golovkin-Brook is anywhere near as good as the Basilio-Robinson wars, even the loser will cover himself in glory.Emile Griffith W 15 Dick Tiger New York City, April 25, 1966The Setup: Griffith was a three-time welterweight champion by the time he challenged Tiger for middleweight supremacy, a classic matchup between two iconic boxers now enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.The Fight: Even though he only weighed 150? pounds, Griffith edged Tiger to take the title in a rather uneventful affair in which the fighters styles nullified each other. Not everybody agreed with the decision but it wasnt the sort of verdict that caused a public outcry. Compared to all the stirring fights Tiger and Griffith gave us, it was a dud.The Aftermath: Griffith took the commission to court in a vain attempt to keep both titles. Apparently the boxing establishment wasnt as smart as it was back in Armstrongs day, so Emile was forced to choose, and decided to keep the middleweight belt. Tiger hardly skipped a beat and upset Jose Torres to win the light heavyweight championship in his very next fight.What does this fight tell us about Golovkin-Brook?: Among the very best practitioners of the Noble Art, style is often the deciding factor and if youre good enough a loss doesnt necessarily mean all that much in the long run.What will all of this mean Saturday? Maybe nothing. The cover headline on the Boxing News preview issue was Mission Impossible, and thats coming from the venerable British weekly (since 1909), which tends to favor U.K. fighters whenever feasible. But if Golovkin wins as expected it wont be because he grew into a middleweight before Brook did. It will be because hes a better fighter. Custom Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. Brett Pesce Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. . Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. LINCOLN, Neb. -- A Nebraska football player who took a knee during the national anthem before the game at Northwestern on Saturday night said he and his family have received racially charged criticism on social media, and said the responses show why the protest is necessary.Senior linebacker Michael Rose-Ivey read an impassioned statement during the Cornhuskers weekly media availability on Monday. Freshmen Mohamed Barry and DaiShon Neal joined Rose-Ivey on one knee in protest of racial injustice and police brutality.Former high school classmates, friends, peers and some Huskers fans swiftly criticized the group on Facebook and Twitter, Rose-Ivey said.Some believe DaiShon, Mohamed and myself should be kicked off the team or suspended, while some said we deserved to be lynched or shot just like the other black people who have died recently. Others believe we should be hung before the anthem before the next game. These are actual statements we receive from fans, he said.Rose-Ivey said the players were joining in solidarity with San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other professional and amateur athletes who are kneeling or otherwise protesting unfair treatment of blacks in the United States.The opportunity to use the platform was rare for the Huskers. Like many college teams, they are in the locker rooms during the anthem at Nebraska home games. At Northwestern, players are traditionally on the field. Rose-Ivey said he told coach Mike Riley and his team about his plans ahead of the game, and Riley supported him.As the group took a knee, four of his teammates spontaneously helped the Northwestern band and others hold a giant U.S. flag over the field when there werent enough people to keep it up. Zack Darlington said he and fellow sophomore Nick Gates, junior Drew Brown and senior Sam Hahn were together on the sideline when they noticed the flag drooping.I dont think any of us who held the flag did it to go out there and overshadow anyone, Darlington said. We were just standing there, and it looked like it was going to fall. I got neervous. Scott Darling Jersey. I didnt want it to touch the ground. I know how sacred our flag is, so I wasnt going to let it touch the ground -- not on my watch.Darlington said he didnt disagree with the cause, just the method of protest.Everyone can see there are a lot of African-American people being killed today, which makes people nervous, Darlington said. There are other ways possibly to protest that wouldnt disrespect our veterans and military and our country. I dont think they did it in spite of the military or of our veterans. I know they love this country. Its something they want to bring attention to, and I think rightly so.Riley said with 140 players on the roster there will be a wide range of opinions about the anthem protest.We have guys from all kinds of backgrounds, all parts of the country, we have a real nice -- and I love it -- melting pot, Riley said. And then you also have a bunch of kids who are in college, where you gain a whole new awareness of the world as you go, and you start to form those opinions that are going to make you who you are for the rest of your life.Rose-Ivey quoted Martin Luther King, referenced other civil rights champions and said it would be wrong for him to not speak out with his voice or by kneeling during the anthem.We did it understanding the implications of these actions, Rose-Ivey said, but what we didnt expect was the enormous amount of hateful, racially motivated comments we received from friends, peers, fans and members of the media about the method of protest.He said the reactions further underscore the need for this protest and give us just a small glimpse into the persistent problem of race, racism in this country and the divisive mentality of some Americans.Rose-Ivey said a number of people also sent him messages of support. That feels good, because it seems like the negative outweighs the positive, he said.---On the Net:AP college football website: Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
