title Why Cotto Will Destroy Pacquiao

By Manuel Perez: I’ve changed my mind about the November 14th fight between Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto. I originally saw the fight going for Pacquiao because of figured him and his trainer Freddie Roach would install some medieval catch weight that would leave Cotto too weak and drained to make a fight of it. But now that I’ve had time to look at the new variables with the catch weight only being 145 rather than say 142or 143, I think Cotto is going to wipe the deck with Pacquiao.

title Is Wladimir Klitschko One of the Greatest Punchers of All Time?

By William Mackay: Although IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (53-3, 47 KO’s) is flawed in the chin department, his power is undeniable. He punches incredibly hard with both hands and has perhaps the best jab in all of boxing. Since capturing the IBF heavyweight title with a 7th round stoppage against Chris Byrd in April 2006, Klitschko has knocked out six of his seven heavyweight challengers and dominated each one of them. His style of fighting leaves a lot to be desired most people will admit. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao Wants Cotto’s WBO Title to Be On the Line For the Fight

By Manuel Perez: Manny Pacquiao is hoping that Miguel Cotto’s WBO welterweight title will be on the line for their November 14th bout at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. For Pacquiao and his legion of loyal boxing fans, the title is important because it will somehow give Pacquiao more validity as a great fighter because it will – if Pacquiao wins – be his 7th world title victory. Cotto, however, doesn’t want to have to pay the sanctioning fees to, which is what he’d have to do if his title was going to be on the line. Read the rest of this entry »

title Where Does Haye Go If He Loses to Valuev?

Valuev-HayeBy Chris Williams: David Haye (22-1, 21 KO’s) has got to be the most confident – read: cocky – fighter I’ve seen in the heavyweight division since Muhammed Ali fought. Haye is so confident that it borders on a fighter with delusions of grandeur. He really believes he’s the guy in the heavyweight division or at least he gives the impression that he is. My question is what does Haye do if things don’t turn out to be like he thinks they are and he ends up getting knocked out by the huge Russian giant? What does Haye do with his career? Getting beaten by Valuev would be almost certainly the end for Haye as a marketable heavyweight fighter. Read the rest of this entry »
