Mayweather Jr vs. TBA: If it makes money, it makes sense?

 floyd mayweather jr By Gerardo Granados: The WBA – WBC Welter & Light Middleweight Champion Floyd Mayweather Jr W47 (26)-L0-D0 has two bouts left on his multimillion contract. There is no venue set yet and the always dangerous TBA makes fight fans wonder if he can defeat Floyd. Will Mayweather Jr choose to increase his legacy against a solid top welter contender or will he try to legitimize his TBE allegations? Maybe he is just trying to bring in the numbers expected by the TV Network so he will decide on the most profitable opponent available.

Money´s last two fights fell short to make 1 million PPV buys, any other fighter who is able to make half the numbers he brings would be satisfied but Floyd is under a huge pressure due his great contract so he must deliver the numbers. Read the rest of this entry »

The true blueprint to defeat Mayweather

 floyd mayweather jr By Chester Rivers: Oscar De La Hoya’s blueprint to defeat Mayweather calls for a constant jab. When most of us heard this we laughed with amusement. After watching Floyd’s last fight, I research De La Hoya’s theory using past footage from YouTube and this is what I found.

De La Hoya was absolutely right in regards to the jab, but he did not mention that the jab should only be used as a throw away punch. Using footage from the 6 fights in which Mayweather was stunned: Castillo 1, Corley, Judah, Moseley, Cotto and Maidana 2, Floyd was caught with flush punches after each of these fighters feinted with the jab and then threw a straight punch.

Pacquiao and Arum name dropping Mayweather’s name

 manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: During the Manny Pacquiao/Chris Algieri press tour, Freddie Roach, Bob Arum and Manny Pacquiao all mentioned Floyd Mayweather on a constant basis. Yes, I know they were probably asked by reporters about Floyd and they gave their opinions. In fact, there was so much Mayweather talk that there was very little talk of Algieri from Arum, Roach, or Pac.

They could have said “We’re not here to talk about Floyd. I’m here to promote my fight with Algieri”. But they didn’t. Arum stated that people were disgusted with Floyd’s pay per view bouts. They rambled on and on until rumors surfaced that Mayweather’s rematch with Marcos Maidana did 925,000 buys. These numbers are not official, but they are considerably good considering the undercard had no superstars on it. The gate raked in over 15 million dollars unseating Oscar De La Hoya and Pacquiao’s event that took place in 2008. Read the rest of this entry »

De La Hoya: Mayweather looked tired against Maidana

By Dan Ambrose: Golden Boy Promotions Oscar De La Hoya says he was surprised by the movement and the overall fatigue that he saw from WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr in his 12 round unanimous decision win over Golden Boy fighter Marcos Maidana on September 13th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather clears up All Access issues with Nevada Commission

 floyd mayweather jr By Chris Williams: WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr met with 5 members of the Nevada State Athletic Commission earlier today to discuss a couple of issues that were of concern to the Commission from one of Showtime’s recent All Access: Mayweather vs. Maidana 2 episodes.

The Commission members specifically took issue with a scene where Mayweather was seen with a group of girls smoking marijuana, a substance that is illegal in Nevada at this time. The other issue that the Nevada Commission had problems with was a 31-minute “doghouse rules” sparring session that took place between pro fighter Hasim Rahman Jr and an amateur named Donovan Cameron.

Canelo: I want those dates [May & Sept], I don’t care who fights

 saul alvarez floyd mayweather jr By Dan Ambrose: Former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) reportedly is saying that he plans on going ahead and taking both of the Mexican holiday dates in 2015 in May and September on HBO pay-per-view. He plans on taking both of those dates.

That means that if Canelo does take the dates, he’s going to be competing with WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr’s own PPV fight on Showtime. Canelo does seem to care, as he plans on taking the dates anyway. Read the rest of this entry »

Amir “King” Khan v. Marcos “El Chino” Maidana 2: Make it happen

 marcos rene maidana amir khan By Carlos Rivera: In all likelihood Floyd “Money” Mayweather will not be fighting Amir Khan next May. His comments about Khan’s unfinished business is indicative of that. So instead of spending time on the Mayweather Sweepstakes Khan needs to focus on an exciting fight that will give him credibility and a fight that myself, and many many others would love to see. Khan v. Maidana 2. And to really make that event and EVENT, Brook v. Thurman needs to be on that undercard.

To many, Amir Khan’s victory over El Chino Maidana was a fluke. To much interference by the ref and hugging by King Khan. The perfect way for El Chino to bounce back from these Mayweather fights is to avenge his loss to Amir Khan and to do so convincingly. This fight also has an upside for Amir Khan. If he can escape with a victory he would be in a much better position to secure a fight against Mayweather at the end of 2015. Read the rest of this entry »

Keith Thurman: “Who Has Fought Keith Thurman NOBODY! I am in the Mayweather Sweepstakes”

 keith thurman floyd mayweather jr By Danny Esch: In an interview conducted by IFL.TV’s Kugan Cassius at the MGM Grand for Mayweather vs. Maidana 2 Interim Welterweight Champion Keith Thurman strongly voiced his opinions on being “avoided”, Amir Khan, IBF Welterweight Champion Kell Brook, and WBC/WBA Welterweight Champion Floyd Mayweather and his shoulder injury among other topics.

KC: You last fought in April before Floyd’s last fight against Maidana you have a shoulder injury is that why you have been out? Read the rest of this entry »

Canelo and Golden Boy to announce HBO deal today

 saul alvarez By Dan Ambrose: Golden Boy promotions president Oscar De La Hoya and HBO Sports president Ken Hershman will be announcing the signing of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) to HBO today in a press conference. It’s unclear for how many years the 24-year-old Canelo’s contract will be with HBO, but you can assume it’s going to be at least 2 years.

HBO is betting that Canelo will be able to look as good as he did before his loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr and his less than impressive performances against Austin Trout and Erislandy Lara. This is obviously a gamble on HBO’s part because Canelo has a lot of question marks around his ability after his last fight against Lara. Read the rest of this entry »

Roach to start training Pacquiao next month in Philippines

Pacquiao Algieri Pacquiao vs. Algieri  manny pacquiao freddie roach By Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach will start training camp with his fighter WBO 147lb champ Manny Pacquiao next month in the Philippines for his first defense of his WBO title against light welterweight Chris Algieri on 11/22 in Macao, China.

Pacquiao is going to be fighting Algieri at a catch-weight of 144 pounds rather than at the full weight for the division. Pacquiao and Roach decided that it would be better for the training camp to be situated in the Philippines so that Pacquiao could quickly travel to nearby Macao, China for the fight against Algieri on November 22nd.
