title Why Won’t British TV Companies Screen Big Boxing Events?

By Liam Santiago: I was very disappointed to find out that not one British television company had decided to broadcast tonight’s massive boxing event, with a double main event. Witter vs Devon and Campbell vs Bradley just did not seem big enough for them. What will they screen except Hatton, Khan and Haye?

title Mosley Still Ready to Fight Pacquiao – News

By Manuel Perez: With Manny Pacquiao’s recent problems with WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto not wanting to put his title on the line for the fight, Pacquiao might want to look in another direction towards World Boxing Association welterweight champion Shane Mosley, who said that he’s more than willing to still fight Pacquiao.

Hatton’s mental focus had been destroyed and in training the Manchester warrior was left to sail past his peak by trainer and poet, Floyd Mayweather Snr. Read the rest of this entry »

title Why Won’t Mayweather Jr. Fight the Very Best? – Boxing

mayweather-hatton5By Richard Bailey: Before I get started, let me just say that I don’t disagree with the fact that Floyd was the pound for pound king, because he definitely was. I just never could understand why his opponents weren’t the best in the latter part of his career as they were in the beginning? His speed and class, and the way he made fights look so easy made you either have a love or hate opinion of him. His victories at Super Featherweight made us all assume he would fight anyone.

title Would Hatton Have Beaten Pacquaio if Ricky was Better Prepared?

hat3558By Liam Santiago: Ricky Hatton was in absolutely no state to be going anywhere near a boxing ring on May 2nd, in Las Vegas to take on Manny Pacquiao. His trainer, Floyd Mayweather Snr, proved to be as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Ricky may as well have had Homer Simpson in his corner. For what it’s worth I honestly believe the result would have been different if the circumstances were. As I have said before, I am a massive Manny Pacquiao fan and admire his abilities. His speed and power is amazing. But a peaked Ricky Hatton is also amazing. Read the rest of this entry »
