title Martin Murray Interview

murray57By Nathan Haworth: Martin Murray, 30 years old from St Helens, England; has a fantastic professional record of 25 wins from 27 fights, 11 coming by way of KO, and he has 1 loss and 1 draw. His first blemish came in 2011 at the SAP-Arena in Germany against former WBA (Super) World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm; this was a split decision draw.

Murray then went on to have two consecutive victories before challenging Sergio Martinez for The Ring and WBC Middleweight titles last April. The outcome of this fight was extremely controversial with Murray knocking Martinez down twice and dominating the majority of the fight only for Murray to lose via unanimous decision.

Today I spoke with Martin about his potential future bouts; his toughest fight in the ring and Darren Barker Vs Felix Sturm. Read the rest of this entry »

title Guillermo Rigondeaux deserves to have his fights televised on HBO

rigondeaux222By Jose Muradas:

Boxing is like jazz. The better it is, the less people appreciate it.”
George Foreman

Cuban Gold

It shouldn’t be this way for the man nicked named the “Chacal” (The Jackal). Guillermo Rigondeaux is poetry in motion. A fighter gifted with speed, footwork, and excellent defensive skill. He should be embraced by his promoter Bob Arum, and the executives at HBO.

A man who has forged his craft with the heralded Cuban National Team. A two- time world amateur champion and Olympic gold medalist. Read the rest of this entry »

title A fifth fight between Pacquiao and Marquez won’t settle anything

marquez56By Jose Muradas: Yes, the title is correct, and it may happen. The fight is on the drawing board, and is being shopped around to casinos by Top Rank. It could become a certainty if both fighters win their upcoming fights. Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KO’s) with a victory over Tim Bradley (30-0-0, 12KO’s) would then have to fight the WBO’s mandatory challenger, who would be none other than Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KO’s).

If the money’s right, any fight can be made, but why continue to push this match- up on the public. Marquez will not fight Pacquiao, he has stated this already. The reasons are unclear, but he may feel that he has vindicated himself in front of the boxing world’s eyes. There is also the age factor, Marquez is 40 years old. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather vs. Alvarez: Canelo an underrated boxer

canelo33By Sal Arteaga: Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) is preparing for his toughest challenge ever, to defeat the undefeated Pound-for-Pound King Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s). An opponent many deem unbeatable. Mayweather is a defensive mastermind who’s been able to outthink, outperform, and out-punch his competition.

His strategy is simple -avoid getting punched, while connecting as many punches as possible in the process. Many legendary fighters have entered the ring with what they believed was the perfect strategy to defeat Floyd, but they soon learn how difficult it is to execute. The reason for their difficulties is Floyd’s speed. He is evasive and quick, and he can avoid punches with great ease and return fire in rapid fashion. Read the rest of this entry »

title Matthysse vs. Garcia should have it’s own ALL ACCESS episodes on Showtime

matthysse564By Chester Rivers: How many times can the human ear hear “Hard Work, Dedication” before the ear drums start to bleed? How many times do we have to stomach Oscar De La Hoya whining that he defeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. and knows how to beat him? How many times do we have to watch a segment featuring Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) and think he’s so boring I’d rather hear “Hard Work, Dedication”?

If the execs at Showtime are banking on this series luring the casual boxing fan to pay $70.00 to watch this fight they may be very disappointed on Sept. 15.

All Access is design to give us, the fans, a behinds the scenes look at our favorite fighter as he prepares for his upcoming fight. The series can also be used to introduce the public to boxing’s rising young stars. Read the rest of this entry »

title There is no blueprint to beat Mayweather Jr.

floyd8 (2)By Mr. Pennington: First I would like to start by saying this has been a refreshing experience as a fight fan. I haven’t watched any of the behind the scenes footage such as All Access since Floyd Mayweather versus Ricky Hatton. So for boxing to once again have the power to sit me down in time to watch guys punch bags is very exciting. With the fight only eleven days away, I thought it would be smooth sailing from now until fight night.

Every aspect of the fight has been talked about to the point on redundancy, by now we all know, Mayweather can’t hurt Canelo, and Canelo is flat footed. But just when I thought the coast was clear, the golden boy himself comes out and makes comments that I found very interesting. “I have unlocked the vault and given Canelo the blueprint to defeat Mayweather”.

title Roberto Duran faces Jorge Castro in exhibition bout this Saturday in Argentina

By Gerardo Granados: Some fighter’s endurance is simply phenomenal and they seem to want to fight forever but in this case I personally would like to see Roberto Duran fighting until the final day. Read the rest of this entry »

title Let´s score the Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Marvin Hagler fight, before the Canelo vs. Money

canelo22By Gerardo Granados: This fight was considered as the upset of the decade, it took place a really long time ago and there is no doubt that the young and not so young boxing fans might not had the chance to see it. I saw it when I was a teenager and a casual fan too, back then for me the clear winner was Marvelous Marvin Hagler but maybe after twenty six years of watching boxing my view could off be different.

This bout could be a good choice to practice your fight scoring previous the Canelo vs. Money fight next September 14th. That fight had a catch weight involved too and was the major boxing event that year. It was a close fight and not an easy one to properly score because you cannot avoid to give more valor to one of the main aspects to score without allowing your personal boxing taste decide who won the round.

title A Mayweather victory over Canelo will keep him on top

mayweather54By Mr. Pennington: IF Floyd Mayweather Jr. wins so does Pacquiao, why you ask? It’s as easy as your high school economics class, supply and demand. There will always be a sector of fight fans that will hold the fight not happening between Mayweather and Pacquiao against Mayweather no matter what evidence is revealed.

Even if Mayweather goes on to defeat the undefeated, bigger, stronger, younger, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, there will still be those who say Mayweather ducked Pacquiao out of fear. One school of thought would be “why would he be afraid of Pac, when he’s fighting a much bigger guy”, but that conversations for another day. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather Jr. with $123 million in one bank account

floyd612By Allan Fox: Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) reportedly has a huge chunk of his assets in one bank account. According to ESPN, Mayweather Jr. has $123 million in one bank account. This is obviously unusual in this day and age with wealthy people spreading their money around in stocks and hidden Swiss bank accounts.

Mayweather Jr. is set to add an additional $41.5 million to his $123 million pot of gold with his fight against WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) on September 14th. That raises Mayweather Jr’s bank account to $164.5 million if he chooses to deposit it into that account. Read the rest of this entry »
