Floyd Mayweahter – Split Paving the Road to Manny Pacquiao

Posted on 3 Jun, 2014, by in Boxing

No one actually believes that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will ever get in the ring together. However, maybe a major stumbling block to make that fight happen has been removed, as Mayweather parted ways with Golden Boy Promotions, which means that the Top Rank vs Golden Boy rivalry is no longer a reason to deny fans from getting a fight they’ve grown tired of waiting for.

Posted on 1 Jun, 2014, by in Boxing

It might or might not be the end to the career of Carl Froch, but it’s a special way to go. The 36-year old WBA and IBF super middleweight champion provided a fantastic show and knockout victory against George Groves as more than 80,000, a record-crowd for a British boxing bout, watched and cheered the Cobra win the rematch.

Floyd Mayweahter – Fight Date Set, No Opponent Yet

Posted on 20 May, 2014, by in Boxing

First thing to do is to book a venue and a date. Opponent? Someone will come. Floyd Mayweather continues to keep the cards close to his chest, but his next fight will be on September 13, keeping his promise of fighting twice a year since signing that mega deal with Showtime, as the undefeated and current belt holder in two different divisions looks to make some more money before he retires.

Marquez Beats Alvarado – The Path to Pacquiao

Posted on 18 May, 2014, by in Boxing

In order to get a shot at a Welterweight title, Juan Manuel Marquez needed to beat Mike Alvarado in an eliminator. He had no problem doing that despite getting knocked down late in the bout, coming away with a comfortable unanimous decision (119-109, 117-109, 117-109) that gave him the unimportant WBO international Welterweight belt but more importantly put him closer for a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather Beats Maidana – A Crack in the Armor

Posted on 4 May, 2014, by in Boxing

For the first time in a very long while, Floyd Mayweather looked vulnerable. Marcos Maidana was wild an missed quite a lot, but he made the undefeated pound-for-pound king sweat for his belt-unifying more than ever before, and even see one judge call it a draw, which immediately has people calling for a rematch and some even considering the Argentina getting robbed of victory.

Mayweather vs Maidana – A Lot of Money to be Made

Posted on 1 May, 2014, by in Boxing

Unless something very unexpected happens, 2014 is going to be another year in which Floyd Mayweather remains on top of the highest earners in sport, as the grossing from his next fight, facing WBA Welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, will be at least $32 million straight into his pocket before the “extra”: His share of the PPV buys and the in-house gate profits.

Klitschko Beats Leapai – Predictable, Easy & Boring

Posted on 27 Apr, 2014, by in Boxing

It couldn’t get any more one sided than the way Wladimir Klitschko manhandled Alex Leapai in brisk and efficient fifth round knockout to retain his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO & The Ring Heavyweight title belts, once again showing his complete dominance over a decaying weigh class, which makes it hard to judge how good he really is on a historical level.

Hopkins Beats Shumenov – Age is Only a Number

Posted on 20 Apr, 2014, by in Boxing

Even though the scorecards told us of split decision, there was nothing close in the fight between Bernard Hopkins and Beibut Shumenov, as Hopkins unified the Light Heavyweight title in another dominant display, despite his advanced age of 49, which doesn’t seem to be slowing his appetite for the sport and titles down.

Pacquiao Beats Bradley – Justice is Served

Posted on 13 Apr, 2014, by in Boxing

It seems like Manny Pacquiao can move on in his boxing career after getting something straight: He’s a much better boxer than Timothy Bradley, and finally getting the right scorecards to show for it, as there was no mistake in their second fight, with a unanimous decision going his way, not to mention the usual impressive amount of money.

Pacquiao vs Bradley – Justice Needs to be Done

Posted on 11 Apr, 2014, by in Boxing

The previous fight between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley highlighted a big problem in boxing which is its officiating. It might not be corrupt, or at least not in that case, but it can be extremely awful, resulting in a decision win for Bradley, who knew very well he got beat badly in the fight but obviously wouldn’t admit it. Justice doesn’t mean a bad decision going in Pacquiao’s way, but simply the better fighter in the 12 rounds (or less) actually coming out with his hand on top. More
