The Commish says:

That was a fun interview with a fun, lively, spirited and very talented champion. I think Kell Brook is in for his first defeat this Saturday.

After this fight, I am sure we are going to be talking about a $$$May-Shawn Porter fight.

Radam G says:

Wow! Nice interview. “Showtime” is so loosey-goosey and confident — not ¢o¢k$ure — that it is scary. He has me believing what he says. And that is difficult as a mutha.

He's come a long ways since his sparring days in the P-Island with Da Manny. Matter of fact, haters are accusing him — as they did Da Manny — of being on dat syet. I guess Showtime brought a lot of “A-side meth” back to the U.S. mainland with him.

“Special K” Brook has his work cutout for himself. Holla!

How does anyone not like this kid?

The Shadow says:

Yeah, Porter is a nice dude. Totally cool. He also made a good point about the talent level. “Not-so-Special K” LOL!

Much like Hagler and Pacquiao, who he mentioned, Porter has a pretty cool special effect of his own: Hitting a mitt blindfolded. [U]That's[/U] his secret weapon.

No doubt that will carry him to victory.

Hitting stuff blindfolded in training is taking it back to old skool. The old skoolers want/wanted you to know where the target was at all times. And they'd shout that the way to know that is by ” Da $MELL” — an euphemism — for sensing it “like an ant, roach and/or dog (the most powerful smellers on the planet) can sense and smell of anything.” Only an attack coming back could/can distract these heal-seeking/funk-seeking pugs from the target.

By the way, there has been many fighters who fought blind or nearly blinded their whole career. The most well known would be the late, greats Jimmy Ellis, “Smokin'” Joe Frazier and Sam Langford. Big James and Poppa Smoke were legally blind in their left eye. SL was fully blinded in both eyes. Holla!

The Shadow says:

That's awesome. This should be an interesting matchup. Shawn E. Porter is a cool dude.

I'm still shocked how he was able to just run through Paulie's punches.

Sure, they're not sledgehammer blows from Foreman but as Deepwater said from personal experience, they stun you just enough to keep you honest.

Hey, speaking of old school techniques, you mentioned hitting to the armpits?! What's up with that? How does that work?

I mean, I once saw Kamala on WWF TV lift up an opponent's arm and strike the armpit with his outstretched fingers but I just figured he didn't really know how to inflict punishment. LOL

That said, we would try it on each other and it feels uncomfortable. (And I guess there are a lot of nerves there since it tickles the way it does.)

But please share a bit about that? And is there any “syet” that can cover that weakness?

oubobcat says:

Porter is an extremely likable person. He has a tremendous personality and represents the sport very well.

We are now only a couple days from the fight. As I have stated before, I think this is Porter's night to shine. I agree with him in that I see nothing special in Brook and don't think myself that Brook is going to provide much resistance. I see Porter breaking him down round by round with his pressure and power shots. And ultimately see a mid to late round stoppage win for Porter in a fight he wins every round until the moment it is stopped.

You said the key….”there are a lot of nerves there since” one can be tickled to insanity. The second highest point/wiring of the electrical system of the body is highly concetrated in the armpits. And when you can interrupt electricity flow of the body or the planet, you will have a brownout and a quick fade to black. Lights out, BABEEEE!

Getting viciously punched in the right area of the armpit will make you fall and syet your pants/trucks. These New Jack punkedified [$¡¢] pugs and trainers don't know syet about the dangerous spots of getting hit with a near perfect punch. The spots are the back of the head, the temples, the jaws, behind the ears, the left armpit side closest to the heart, the right armpit side leading to the liver, the liver, the solar plexus, the nutsack and the knees.

BTW, 90 percent of the times when boxers literally pooped their trunks, it was because of an armpit shot. The armpit shot turns off all of your electricity to hold your bowels. In other words, the peepee and the do do will cascade like Niagara Falls.

Holla at the old video of Dempsey-Willard Bout. Dempsey hit Willard with some of the most notorious armpit punches of all time. If you have the eyes to know, you can and will see urine and feces all up on da squared jungle canvas. Holla!

Awesome post! I didn't realize it would make you defecate hahahaha!

Do you have a video?

And by the way, you won't believe who I spoke to today!!!

Boxing videos won't go there. They play it off. But I'm there are videos on Youtube of people release their bowels.

Dangit! I missed the Commish talk show. But who did you holla at? Shannon Biggs or Doc Wlad, or someone else? Holla!

The one, the only, the myth, the man, the legend Bernie Campbell!!

He was hollering about how Adrien Broner was a lock for city council, congress or gubernatorial responsibilities in Cincinnati in a few years.

But he led with stating something about Primo Carnera being a legendary heavyweight or something haha.

Oh, and I just came from a gym session with the Commish. He damn near killed me. That man is bionic.

I need to get some of your health materials STAT! I'm heading straight to this funky store to get some dill. Haha.

Radam G says:

Hehehe! Wow! I would not have ever guess B-Camp. The dude is a ramp between the dark and a lamp. He hops from a tramp to a champ. He is a genius in disguise no doubt. And will never let you fully know what he is about.

Your lactic acid was likely up while you were in the gym with the bionic one. That spill of lactic acid slows you down during da gitdown [$¡¢] and stiffen you up afterward.

Prevention is what you need to holla at. You need a spoon of red-beet power thrown in an 8oz glass of alkaline water, 1/2 teaspoon of caraway seed and 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper power. Heat it up to where you can stand to drink it. Sip it and chow on the caraways as they flow in your mouth. Take at least 12 minutes to do this.

Don't be surprise if you start wet sneezing and rocking anal acoustics. Know that the enemy — lactic acid — of flash-and-dash moves and being loosey-goosey with mad endurance and stamina is fading to deep dark. And you will have a mean bite and bark.

And that is how you a handle bionic shark. Holla!

Thanks! I will definitely follow that!

I haven't been in a gym in a while and my lack of stamina kicked in quick. Had me doing core exercises till failure and hitting like 20-punch combos on the mitts.

I was about to vomit at least twice. (Why does that happen?) And it wasn't even a tough workout by Commish' standards.

It's funny, on the air last night, we talked about hand injuries — have you ever had any, Radam? — and I mentioned how I've never had sore hands.

I did today. LOL! This man…

We then went a round to conclude the training session. The man got some slick footwork!

I still took him to Cuban school, though.

Nah. JK. Lol.

And yes, Bernie! He will never reveal the true deal. Whenever we're on to him, he disappears for a while to not blow his cover.

Again, thanks for the tips!

I'm so serious, I'm going to compile the different stuff you've shared, organize it, use it as a draft and then use it as a first draft for an e-book to share here.

OK – can't wait to read the publication Shadow.

You sound committed to the cause(s).

The main reason that your body was wanting to vomit is from our ancient human ancestors — the cave people. The brains — the reason for living bodies — send to signals to our bodies to vomit and/or defecate when we are, or might be, under losing attack by a predator or a fellow human being. As you know even in these times, attackers tend to leave you alone when you are stinking up the joint by releasing smelly waste from the face hole or arse hole. Hehehe!

During cave folk days, the gathers and hunters safety valves from becoming meals and victims were releasing plenty of puke and poo poo.

Evolution and changing social activities are no deter to our natural origin. The best things for us are to get control of our body functions by eating the right foods to block the natural fear-factors of our brains, which can and will send signal to the bodies to puke and/or poo poo because they might become preys.

You can prevent the near vomiting by adding a lot of ryebread products and barley to your diet and getting rid of the cow-milk products. Apparently you have an insulin shortage because of excess corn-fed cow milk and meat products residing and hiding in your colon — not believing or hating on the myth of 40 pound of feces in the colon of the late, great movie star John Wayne.

The hands are not made for hitting. I broke bones and knuckles in my left hand three different times. I broke my right thumb and bones in my right hand twice. I broke winds a few times. Hehehe! And a lot of jaws, eyesockets, ribs and collarbones of my opponents, including sparringmates. Luckily, I didn't suffer the same fate as my opponents. Holla!
