title Broner wants Pacquiao and Maidana in 2015

broner67By Allan Fox: Former three division world champion Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) says he plans on fighting three to four times in 2015 depending on whether he suffers bruising from his fights.

Broner, 25, says two of the names he wants to fight next year are Manny Pacquiao and Marcos Maidana. Broner says that light welterweight contender Lucas Matthysse isn’t interested in facing him. In fact, Broner believes a lot of the top fighters don’t want to face him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Algieri: Mayweather beats Pacquiao in a non-competitive fight

pac7169By Dan Ambrose: Chris Algieri was soundly beaten by WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision in Macau, China. But with that said, Algieri says Pacquiao doesn’t match up well with Floyd Mayweather Jr, and he sees Pacquiao losing that fight if it winds up getting made in 2015.

Algieri doesn’t think the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight will get made. He feels that the way things are going right now, he doesn’t think the fight will get made between the two super stars of the sport. For Algieri to pick Mayweather to beat Pacquiao by a one-sided fight, you have to believe that Algieri is serious. He was beaten easily by Pacquiao. Read the rest of this entry »

title Floyd Sr not sure if Mayweather will fight Pacquiao or not

floyd6333By Dan Ambrose: Floyd Mayweather Sr, the father and trainer of WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr, isn’t sure at this point whether Mayweather Jr will be getting in the ring to fight Manny Pacquiao in 2015.

Floyd Sr is normally very vocal about whether Mayweather Jr will be fighting Pacquiao not, but in this case he’s not sure what’s going to happen between them and he doesn’t appear to be ready to expound on the subject. Read the rest of this entry »

title Kovalev not worried about fighting Pascal in Canada

kovalev442By Allan Fox: IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) may be a three-belt world champion and the guy that many boxing fans consider to be the best fighter in the 175 pound division, but on March 14th, Kovalev will be in the adopted country of his opponent Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

The reason why Kovalev will be fighting in Canada rather than the United States or Russia is because Pascal has a huge fan base in Canada. They can make more money fighting in Canada in front of a large audience of Pascal fans than they could if the fight took place in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan expects to find out about Mayweather fight in next two weeks

khan555By Scott Gilfoid: Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) says he should find out within the next two weeks whether he’ll be getting a fight against WBA/WBC 147 pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr or not for the first part of 2015.

It looks like Khan figures that Mayweather will make up his mind about who his next opponent will be by then, as he’ll have a pretty good idea if he’ll be getting the Manny Pacquiao fight soon. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather-Pacquiao: Who has faced the better opposition? Part 1: Floyd

floyd8282828By B.G.B: The two leading fighters in the world today didn’t get to the position that they are in by facing weak opposition. Fans from both sides slam the others resume in order to establish their man as the true number one.

It seems that at this stage of their careers, fans are only interested in what’s wrong with the opponent rather than what is right.  Yes there will always be ‘haters’, but it is the same haters who seem to forget just how much both fighters have achieved throughout a combined career span of 38 years. So who has fought the better opposition? Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao is still behind Mayweather

jmm_ko_pacBy Babatis Banda: Talk is cheap and results are facts and say it all. Facts are facts and illusions, wishes and would-be scenarios are useless in the face of facts and in the real world we live in. It is a fact that Floyd Mayweather Jnr is the current king of the sport. He is at the helm of the beloved sport. We can argue all we want why he shouldn’t, or what ought to be and all, but it is useless.

The truth is, he is the prize fighter, the unbeaten king of the ring and he should be calling the shots as it is the tradition of this sport. If not, why is he the most expensive fighter to watch in the whole wide world? Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather to get $100 million, Pacquiao $60 million

pac8888By Allan Fox: There’s talk that Floyd Mayweather Jr is willing to give Manny Pacquiao a very generous cut of the financial pie in order to fight him on May 2nd. The talk is that Mayweather will give the Bob Arum promoted Pacquiao a 60-40 cut of the revenue, according to gmanetwork. Mayweather would stand to get $100 million for the fight compared to $60 million.

If this turns out to be true then it would be a very, very generous percentage that the 36-year-old Pacquiao would be getting for the fight because there are some boxing writers who feel that Pacquiao will get no better than a 70-30 cut of the revenue, and even that would be a generous offer by Mayweather.

title Canelo: I will not move off the May 2nd date

canelo7657By Dan Ambrose: Former WBA junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez may not be anywhere near the popularity or the talent level of Floyd Mayweather Jr, but that’s not keeping the red-haired Canelo from budging from the May 2nd date that he plans on fighting.

The May 2nd date falls on Cinco de Mayo, and that’s a date that Mayweather has been fighting on for the last five years. However, Canelo says that date is one of the Mexican holiday dates, and he’s stubbornly not going to move off the date even though he doesn’t bring in anywhere near the same pay-per-view numbers that Mayweather does.

title Golovkin waiting on Cotto-Canelo fight

golovkin7356By Dan Ambrose: WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin says he’s waiting to get a fight for the WBC 160 pound title against either Miguel Cotto or Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Golovkin is ready to fight either of those guys unless they opt to vacate the WBC title.

The Cotto-Canelo fight could take place on May 2nd unless there’s a problem with the negotiations that keeps the fight from getting made in the first half of 2015. If that’s the case, then we could see Cotto take an optional title defense instead while he waits on the Canelo fight. Read the rest of this entry »
