title Wilder: I’m going to put Stiverne’s whole team out of commission

Deontay Wilder(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Scott Gilfoid: Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs) expects not only to soundly beat WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) this Saturday night in their title fight, but also put many of his team members out of work at the same time with the victory at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Deontay wants to beat 6’2” Stiverne in such a convincing manner that his team members will be out of work.

“I am super-confident and I can’t wait. Someone is going to lose their job. I am going to put his whole team out of commission. That’s my promise,” Deontay said.

That would be interesting if Stiverne either cleaned out his team after a knockout loss to Deontay, or his team members abandoned ship after he lost his title, leaving one by one. Read the rest of this entry »

title Brandon Rios: I might just retire if I lose to Mike Alvarado

rios55By Dan Ambrose: #4 WBO Brandon Rios (32-2-1, 23 KOs) is uttering the dreaded ‘R’ word in talking about a possible retirement from boxing if he goes out and gets beaten by former WBO light welterweight champion Mike Alvarado in their trilogy fight in the next 10 days on January 24th at the 1stBank Center, in Bloomfield, Colorado.

It’s hard to tell why the 28-year-old Rios is talking about retirement now, because he should have been talking about it a long time ago. Rios has pretty much lost 4 out of his last 5 fights. Read the rest of this entry »

title Juergen Braehmer faces Robin Krasniqi on March 21st in Rostock, Germany

brahmer344By Scott Gilfoid: WBA World light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (45-2, 33 KOs) will be defending his WBA title against #2 WBA contender Robin Krasniqi (43-3, 16 KOs) on March 21st in Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

It’s not a fight to get all that excited about, as it’s more of a par for the course for the 36-year-old Braehmer who has been matched very softly by his promoters at Sauerland since he picked up the WBA title with a win over Marcus Oliveira in December 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

mayweather46By Antonia Bufalino: I know, I know. Same old, same old, right?

I’m guilty of saturating this website with Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao news, but please understand I am just as (cautiously) excited as everyone else. So, when I hear something new, I want to make sure everyone is updated.

With that said, more news surfaced on how a deal is close- very close.

Examiner, Yahoo Sports, and ESPN all released different reports from their individual sources who are in agreement with one thing: we are waiting on Mayweather. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather-Pacquiao Speculation

mayweather555By Jermill Pennington: While rumors seem to spiral out of control I try to focus on the words that come from the mouth of those involved that don’t have an agenda. A parable in the Bible (Matt. 13:24–30). talks about separating the wheat from the tare. A tare is a type of weed that grows along-side of wheat and is identical. What’s implied in that passage is that man is unable to tell the difference and can be tricked, so leave that judgment to god. That said we as fans in the case of Pacquiao Mayweather have a hard time combing through reports to find the truth.

What usually happens since the truth to us can be hidden behind manipulated and premeditated agendas, we as fans tend to select what information we consider to be truth depending on what side of the fence we’re standing on. This to me is no indictment on a person, more so a natural human characteristic. However there are those of us who rather seek the truth then to point a finger. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao to get 40% cut of revenue for Mayweather fight

pac012345By Chris Williams: Manny Pacquiao will be getting a 60-40 purse split for his fight against WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr if the fight gets signed for May 2nd. According to Dan Rafael, Mayweather is giving Pacquiao 40% of the cash for the fight which will be taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be televised on both HBO and Showtime.

With Mayweather still not willing to put the ink on the contract, it tells you that he may be having second thoughts about his generous offer of a 60-40 cut for the 36-year-old Filipino star. Read the rest of this entry »
