title Mayweather: Pacquiao is kind of reckless, his moves are not thought out
By Dan Ambrose: On May 2nd, boxing fans will get a chance at seeing the huge difference between the styles and likely the intelligence of the two superstars Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 26 KOs) and Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) when the two of them trade blows for the first time in their fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather has a lot of respect for Pacquiao and his boxing skills and power. But Mayweather also sees a lot of wasted movement and aimless moves that Pacquiao makes. He feels that is reckless of Pacquiao, because he puts himself in position where he had to put faith in his ability to take his opponent’s best shots each time he goes on the attack mode.

title Golovkin’s promoter says he can put together HBO-backed financial deal for Andy Lee-Golovkin fight

lee564By Allan Fox: WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golokvin’s promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions says he can work with HBO to put together an HBO financed deal to put together a Golovkin vs. Andy Lee unification fight. Lee, 30, recently fought to a 12 round draw against former WBO 160lb champion Peter Quillin last Saturday night on April 11th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

While some boxing fans thought that Lee was robbed in that fight, it was clear to a lot of fans that Lee had simply given up too many rounds in the early part of the fight for him to get the ‘W’ in the fight. Lee was knocked down twice by Quillin in getting dropped in the 1st and 3rd rounds. Read the rest of this entry »

title Did Danny Garcia really win against Lamont Peterson?

garcia665By Juni: Was I watching another fight last Saturday night when WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia defeated IBF 140 pound champion Lamont Peterson at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York? Usually I have a paper and a pen to score fights, but I was sure this fight was not going to last.

I felt the only way for Lamont to win is to box (which he did). But my question was (while I was watching the fight), how long can he box till he goes back to his old way of fighting? I had thought once his legs tire, he will stand and try to fight Garcia which will result in making it an easier fight for Danny. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan’s father says to Brook’s promoter Hearn: Anymore disrespecting us and it’s over

khan777By Scott Gilfoid: Amir Khan’s father, Shah Khan, says that IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport talked himself out of a big fight against Khan by his trash talking about Khan. Shah says they would have taken the fight with Brook if Hearn has been respectful and calm.

But with the way he’s badgered Khan constantly in the media, Shah says they’re tempted never to face Brook if Hearn keep it up like this. Shah points out how British welterweight Junior Witter trash talked Ricky Hatton many years ago trying to get a fight against him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Froch: Calzaghe knew that I was going to beat him

By Scott Gilfoid: Carl Froch is still talking about how he couldn’t get former undisputed super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe (46-0, 32 KOs) to fight him seven years ago when Froch was trying hard to get a fight against Calzaghe in 2008 before he retired from the sport.

title Hearn wants to match Joshua against Whyte, Chisora, Price, Fury and Haye in next 12 months

joshua7By Scott Gilfoid: Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn plans on upgrading his fighter #7 WBC heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (11-0, 11 KOs) against a higher grade of talent if he’s able to get past 35-year-old American journeyman Kevin Johnson in their fight on May 30th.

Hearn says he wants to match the 25-year-old Joshua against the following heavyweights in the next 12 months: Dillian Whyte, Dereck Chisora, David Price, David Haye and Tyson Fury. All I can say to that is good luck trying to make those fights. Read the rest of this entry »

title Quigg vs. Donaire a possibility for July 18th

donaire222By Scott Gilfoid: WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs) could wind up facing former four belt champ Nonito Donaire (34-3, 22 KOs) in the summer if Quigg doesn’t wind up facing IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton, according to Fight News.

Quigg’s promoter Eddie Hearn wants the fight between Frampton and Quigg to be made this summer, but if doesn’t take place Hearn will look for a fall back option, which would be either the 32-year-old Donaire or 29-year-old former IBF 122 pound champ Kiko Martinez (32-5, 24 KOs).

title Andre Ward vs. Paul Smith possible for June 20th in Oakland, CA

ward765By Scott Gilfoid: WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) could be facing 2nd tier fighter Paul Smith (35-5, 20 KOs) next on June 20th at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. Smith, 32, has lost his last two fights to WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham. Smith bellyached after the first loss to Abraham in September of last year, so he was given a rematch earlier this year in February.

Unfortunately for Smith, he was beaten again in pretty much the same style as the first fight. At that point there was no way that they could fight each other again. Read the rest of this entry »

title Arum: Mayweather bleeds in sparring every time he gets hit

floyd8822By Raj Parmar: Following up on reports in the last couple of days that Floyd Mayweather Jr is suffering some bumps and bruises in training camp as he prepares to defend his welterweight crown (and undefeated record) against Manny Pacquiao, Manny’s promoter Bob Arum is adding more fuel to the fire.

Not only is Arum confirming that Floyd recently suffered from a bleeding lip during sparring, he is stating that the pound for pound king now has to use special headgear to avoid the lip from repeatedly bleeding. Read the rest of this entry »
