KJ Noons vs. Josh Thomson is off
Noons wants to focus on his boxing career. However, Thomson will still be on the card. Opponent TBD
That sucks, that would have been a great fight.
Hopefully they find a suitable replacement for Noons.
if i wasn't already done with KJ Noons, i am now
Yeah, i really should have seen this coming. lol
KJ fights cans in boxing too. What a shame.
The fact that KJ was champ in a company is hidious(sp?), he's a joke to MMA, he ducks any fight that poses a threat to him(or at least it seems that way to me).
He's 8-1 as a boxer, andhiswins were over chumps--hs loss came to 37 year old journeyman Daniel Stanisavljevic who sports an 8-15 record. He's never going to be anything more than a journeyman boxer as well, when he seems to have legit skills as an MMA fighter.
Only top boxers get decent money. At least in MMA, even mid-level fighters can make a decent buck. If that's what he wants to do, more power to him but someone should clue him in that he has more potential to be a good MMA fighter, than he has to be a good boxer--and he's certainly going to make more money in MMA than he is as a boxer on the undercard.
He is constantly ducking guys. And its a good thing he got out of this fight because Josh would dominate him.
I like Noons. I think he is a really good fighter.
He has too much drama though.
I wish he would decide what he wants to do.
Make up your mind KJ.
If he dedicated himself to MMA he could go somewhere.
I want to see him fight 4 or 5 times a year.
Thomson would have DESTROYED him anyway.
Would have liked to see it, though.
Yeah because fighting for titles in MMA is no way near as lucrative as boxing on an undercard.......................................
KJ ducking again ? Why is nobody surprised.....
Quack, quack, quaaa................Zzzzzzzz
Seems like guys are being pretty hard on dude. He has two careers and considering how long EliteXC has been in limbo it made sense for him to dedicate himself to the career that would allow him to actually fight. Then the Strikeforce deal came along rather suddenly and to have to switch gears quickly to go back to MMA would be dangerous, especially against Thompson.
I would like to see him back in MMA but hopefully he'll do it when he's legitimately ready to come back.
I honestly don't get the hate. I guess some people just hate when others don't do what they'd like. ? Wierd.
