Bring the Smile Back
Internet is a good source of fun, Every time I feel kind of sad or down I always look at the internet as my if not first then second choice to put a smile back on my face. It never failed me, May it be for stupid troll posts, Funny and viral videos up to random funny pictures.

I double click Google chrome open multiple tabs, Facebook, boxing forums , game forums and manga viewing sites. Then I log on to Yahoo Messenger, MSN and Skype. Then the first thing I see are Buzzes and Pokes(Yahoo and Msn respectively), My friends both local and foreign are spamming me. And of course I spam the back, I never thought that talking about random things could be fun. Now Its embedded on me that when Its random then Its funny.

Browse my Facebook to get updated on whats happening, Check the news sports and technology (mainly) then move on to boxing and other contact sports forums where I get to practice my verbal debate skills via keyboard.

Then this is where epic begins, Viral videos and random pictures. I get them via youtube (Raywilliamjohnson) and, There are tons of videos that would surely set you laughing your ass off. For example is this cat who bitch slaps an alligator . I don't know If the cat was either brave or retarded, Maybe both!

When you are feeling down, You don't have to look far for entertainment or fun. You can just grab your laptop/notebook or turn on your PC and search the internet for something random. It will put the smile back on your faces, Tried and tested.

Sweet Science
I was(But I'm pretty damn sure that I'm not alone) treated to a quite sensational fight last Sunday, as defending WBA 140-pound champion Amir Khan fought the fight of his life in out-pointing interim champ Marcos Maidana, who also fought the fight of his pro career.

In winning via scores of 114-111 twice and 113-112, 24-year-old Khan did way more than just retain his world title. No, in taking the best, the most brutal punches the 27-year-old Argentine could take, Khan forever killed the notion that he has anything approaching a glass jaw..

Now 24-1(17) and seemingly light years improved from the lightweight “kid” who was stopped by Colombia’s Breidis Prescott over two years ago, Khan could be on the verge of true greatness. Maidana, whose great effort last night makes referring to him as a loser seem harsh, can come again. Beaten for just the second time in his pro career (never stopped), Maidana is now 29-2(27).

Sunday's(Dec 12) terrific, on-the-edge-of-your-seat battle was excellent entertainment in so many ways. First of all, the pace Khan set and managed to keep up was blistering, and then, with seemingly barely seconds gone, we had out first sensation. Khan ate a big right hand to the head - but he didn’t wobble. Returning fire in a cracking opener, Khan then almost did the unthinkable - he came agonisingly close to taking out the teak-tough Maidana in the very 1st-round!

Maidana recovered and went on to fight, His name never rang a bell in my ears but It sure does now. I became a fan of his heart, The way he got up from the liver blow was amazing. Add to that the rounds that he went through after that. Damn! I don't even know who to cheer for. But one thing is for sure, Everybody in that arena and whoever watches boxing that day was amazed and thrilled by the fight both warriors gave.

Post-fight, Khan said he proved he can take a punch and that all those who watched the fight would have to agree with him on that score. Khan adopted extremely dangerous, gung-ho tactics tonight, but his macho attitude surely earned him many more additional fans. How can anyone not have liked what they saw last night? Both men were terrific and gave their all.

Where Khan goes from here, and how great he can become will prove extremely interesting. Could we even see a return of last Sunday's Classic which in my opinion is a candidate for the "Fight of the year"  award. This kind of fight really helped me remember why I love the sport of boxing.
