Mayweather not to blame for Pacquiao-Mayweather fight failing to materialize

Pacquiao vs. Mayweather  manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Robert Elmore: People are never happy with Mayweather and they are quick to blame him for the mega fight not happening between he and Manny Pacquiao. But a lot of people have come around to see the games Top Rank are playing. Rather than talk about the second and third negotiations, (because it should never gone that far) I like to give facts about the first set of negotiations. The fight should have happened in 2009.

Ward vs. Froch: Andre puts Carl in his place

Froch Ward  carl froch andre ward By Scott Gilfoid: WBA super middleweight champion Andre Wrd (24-0, 13 KO’s) was in fine form in his face to face meeting with WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (28-1, 20 KO’s) in a televised meeting hosted by Showtime’s Jim Gray. In a brief snippet from the show, which will be airing on December 3rd on Showtime, Ward did an excellent job of shutting Froch’s yap when he started giving some lip and trying his controlling tactics during the meeting. Ward wasn’t having any of it, and basically put Froch in his place. It was priceless. Read the rest of this entry »

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Don’t believe the hype

Pacquiao Mayweather Pacquiao vs. Mayweather  manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Eoin Cooke: We’ve been down this road before and will surely go down it a few times again before Floyd Mayweather next fights.

Bute Johnson Bute vs. Johnson  lucian bute glen johnson By Gari Jones: Photo credit: Casino/Showtime – Despite going the distance it was always going to be tough for Glen Johnson to try and beat the undefeated International Boxing Federation (IBF) Super Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute.

When the final bell rang the result was clear, Bute had dominated the fight from start to finish and the scorecards reflected that, two of the judges scored the fight 120-108 and one scored it 119-109.
