Pacquiao wants to KO Algieri in 6 rounds or less

Pacquiao Algieri Pacquiao vs. Algieri Chris Algieri  manny pacquiao By Chris Williams: With it becoming increasingly clear with each and every fight that Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) takes nowadays that his power has disappeared on him since 2009, he is hoping that he can reach back 2000 yesterday’s ago and find some of his long lost old power to knockout his next opponent Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) on November 22nd at the Cotai Arena, Venetian Resort, in Macao, Macao S.A.R., China.

Pacquiao hasn’t knocked anyone out since 2009 when he stopped Miguel Cotto in the 12th round. While Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has continued to hammer away with his bold predictions for Pacquiao to knockout each of his last 8 opponents, Pacquiao has come up empty each time.

Arum wants Donaire-Walters winner to face Lomachenko

Nicholas Walters Donaire Walters Donaire vs. Walters  vasyl lomachenko nonito donaire By Dan Ambrose: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is interested in matching the winner of this Saturday’s fight between WBA Super World featherweight champion Nonito Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) and Nicholas Walters (24-0, 20 KOs) against WBO featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (2-1, 1 KOs).

This would be an excellent fight, but it would be awfully tough on Walters and Donaire, because neither of those guys are in the same league as Lomachenko in my view.

“Arum told me today he’d like to match Saturday’s Donaire-Walters winner with Lomachenko if V-Lom wins 11/22. LOVE IT! #boxing,” said Dan Rafael of ESPN. Read the rest of this entry »



Brandon Rios vs. Mike Alvarado 3 possible for December 20th

 mike alvarado brandon rios By Dan Ambrose: With both of the careers of Mike Alvarado (34-3, 23 KOs) and Brandon Rios (32-2-1, 23 KOs) heading for skid row with each additional loss, their promoters at Top Rank are planning on putting them together for a third fight between them.

The date that they’re looking at is December 20th, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN. Alvarado has lost his last two fights against Juan Manuel Marquez and Ruslan Provodnikov. Rios has lost 2 out of his last 3 fights, but you can make an argument that he would have lost his last fight against Diego Chaves if not for referee Vic Drakulich disqualifying Chaves in the 9th round for an unseen elbow.

Donaire: This fight against Walters will end in a knockout

Nicholas Walters Donaire Walters Donaire vs. Walters  nonito donaire By Chris Williams: 31-year-old WBA Super World featherweight champion Nonito Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) knows his fight against Nicholas Walters (24-0, 20 KOs) will end by knockout this Saturday night HBO Championship Boxing from the StubHub Center, in Carson, California, USA.

Donaire knows that one of them will be getting knocked out. He just doesn’t if it’ll be him or Walters. This is a truly tossup fight and Donaire is the first to admit it. He acknowledges that he’s not as hungry as the 28-year-old Walters because he’s already accomplished more than him, but he still wants the win to keep his career moving forward.

Hearn hoping to deliver Froch-Chavez Jr fight in early 2015

Eddie Hearn  julio cesar chavez jr carl froch By Scott Gilfoid: IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn is saying that Top Rank Promotions and former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr are back in talks about a fight between Froch and Chavez Jr for 2015.

Froch wants to fight Chavez Jr in Las Vegas, Nevada because it’s a place where he’s never fought before, and he rightly or wrongly thinks that Chavez Jr is a big enough star for a fight between them to be a pay-per-view bout in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »



Wilder-Stiverne negotiations making progress

Wilder Stiverne Wilder vs. Stiverne Bermane Stiverne  deontay wilder By Scott Gilfoid: The fight negotiations between WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne and unbeaten #1 WBC Deontay Wilder got some good news on Wednesday with Stiverne’s manager Camille Estephan reporting to ESPN.com that they’ve agreed with promoter Don King for the financial side of the negotiations.

Now the only thing they need is a date and a venue, and of course the 6’7” Deontay to sign on for the fight. Getting Deontay and Golden Boy Promotions to agree to the terms shouldn’t be all that hard considering that Deontay has been pushing for the fight for months now ever since he wiped out Malik Scott in one round last March in the World Boxing Council heavyweight title eliminator bout.

DeGale will fail Froch test, says McCrory

 james degale carl froch By Scott Gilfoid: Sky Sports commentator Glenn McCrory believes #1 IBF James DeGale (19-1, 13 KOs) will fail the test next January against IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) if he winds up getting selected by the 37-year-old Froch and his promoter Eddie Hearn for the fight.

DeGale badly wants to fight Froch because he believes he’s got the talent to beat the aging champion. Froch isn’t sure whether he’ll fight DeGale or not, as he’s not motivated for the fight. He could change his mind though if DeGale impresses next month against #10 WBC Marco Antonio Periban on November 22nd. Read the rest of this entry »



Cotto doesn’t want or need to fight Golovkin

 miguel cotto gennady golovkin By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: There is a high demand for newly crowned WBC middleweight champ Miguel Cotto to fight fellow champ middleweight champ Gennady Golovikin (GGG). For starters, Cotto doesn’t owe GGG a fight. And this is no knock on GGG.

Cotto has been through numerous wars, built himself into the third highest pay per view attraction in North America, and most importantly, he’s paid his dues. He’s won titles in four different weight classes with his forth coming against Sergio Martinez. Beating Martinez gave Cotto the breakthrough he had been searching for. He tried twice against Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio and came up short. But now he’s “the man”. He’s calling the shots. Read the rest of this entry »

Cornelius Bundrage wants Canelo Alvarez

Cornelius Bundrage  saul alvarez By Allan Fox: Newly crowned IBF junior middleweight champion Cornelius Bundrage (34-5, 19 KOs) is hoping to get a fight against former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) in the near future.

Bundrage, 41, thinks that Golden Boy Promotions will now allow Canelo to take a fight against him because of his recent wins over Erislandy Lara and Austin Trout. In the past, Bundrage felt that Golden Boy was protecting the red-haired Canelo due to him being such a valuable investment for their promotional company, but now that he’s showed them that he’s capable of beating the top fighters are 154, they’re more willing to take chances with him.

Floyd Mayweather Jr needs to fight Pacquiao

 manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Yannis Mihanos: So far Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 26 KOs) during his career has remained unmatched and of course very, very rich.

For many boxers this would have been an amazing feat if of course no cherry picking was ever involved. Because someone cherry picks not only with whom he selects but also with whom he avoids and this is what hurts Floyd’s otherwise infallible career. Read the rest of this entry »
