title Joshua should target Klitschko, says Holyfield

klitschko123By Scott Gilfoid: Former heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield thinks that undefeated Commonwealth heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (14-0, 14 KOs) should go after IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) for his titles in the near future.

Holyfield thinks it’s a risk that the 25-year-old Joshua has to take with his career. However, Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn plan on waiting for at least two more fights before they go after either Klitschko or WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan: Mayweather is afraid of my speed

khan670By Scott Gilfoid: Amir Khan thinks that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will come out of retirement next year to come back for his 50th win of his career. But Khan doesn’t expect to be the one that Mayweather will select when he does come back to the ring.

Khan thinks that it’ll be someone else because he believes that Mayweather is afraid of losing his perfect 49-0 record, and for him to fight him, he would give it up. Khan believes that his hand speed is something that Mayweather fears, which is why he would never select him for his 50th fight in 2016. Read the rest of this entry »

title Berto: I didn’t know I needed track shoes for Mayweather

1-IMG_1516By Allan Fox: It didn’t take former IBF/WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) to start complaining about Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr’s fighting style in order to come up with excuses for why he lost last Saturday night to him by a lopsided 12 round unanimous decision on Showtime PPV from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Berto, 32, say he would have needed track shoes for the fight for him to do better in the ring. You have to wonder whether Berto and trainer Virgil Hunter even sat down to watch some of Mayweather’s past fights before they took the fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Berto: I got caught up trying to KO Mayweather

1-IMG_1585By Allan Fox: Andre Berto (30-4, 23 KOs) was badly schooled last Saturday night by Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs) in their mismatch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Berto thinks that he made the mistake of trying to score a knockout over Mayweather all night long, and this was one of the reasons why he rarely was able to connect with any of his punches in the fight.

Berto connected on only 17 percent of his shots in the fight, which is an incredibly low number, given that Mayweather was standing in the pocket right in front of him much of the fight. But Berto fought like he always does by him looking to take Mayweather out with every shot that he threw. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather: Hard Work and Dedication, a tale of Controversy, Redemption and Deception

1-IMG_1676By Carlos Garcia Severich: Is boxing a deer in headlights, are we at the dawn of a new era or at the twilight of its existence. The sport we all have learned to love and accept regardless of the mistreatment of its most devoted fans has seen the star of Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. cruise into retirement with his unblemished record of 49-0.

It is said a sport is as reflection of its fans and superstars but where does it leave us on the post Mayweather era. Looking back in Boxing’s rich history many names come to our heads Ali, Liston, Louis, Robinson, Johnson, Dempsey among others but what they all have in common is the legacy they left behind.

title Hearn gushes about Anthony Joshua’s talent

joshua1111By Scott Gilfoid: With the way that Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn talks about his fighter unbeaten heavyweight Anthony Joshua (14-0, 14 KOs) you would think that he struck oil and hit it big.

Hearn has been yapping about how great Joshua is for ages ever since he signed him two years ago shortly after Joshua won a controversial gold medal in the 2012 London Olympics in his home country of England. Read the rest of this entry »

title Thurman: I’ll walk through Rios

thurman4444By Dan Ambrose: WBA “regular” welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (26-0, 22 KOs) doesn’t seem to think too highly of former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24 KOs), who will be arguably getting an undeserved world title shot two months from now on November 7th against fellow Top Rank fighter WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (33-1-1, 12 KOs) at the Thomas & Mack Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thurman, 26, doesn’t see Rios as a fighter with good defensive skills, hand speed, punching power or talent. Read the rest of this entry »

title Floyd Sr. slams Golovkin and Thurman

golovkin883By Dan Ambrose: Floyd Mayweather Sr. doesn’t see IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) or WBA “regular” welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (26-0, 21 KOs) as a big threat to his son Floyd Mayweather Jr. (49-0, 26 KOs) if they were to fight.

For starters, Floyd Sr. thinks that Mayweather would probably whip Golovkin because of what he feels is his superior fighting style. Floyd Sr. does think that Golovkin is the much bigger fighter than Mayweather, but he still thinks that Mayweather would probably still wind up beating him if he had the desire to take that fight, which he clearly doesn’t.

title Mayweather leaving on his terms, not boxing’s

1-IMG_1892By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: Thomas Hearns ended his illustrious career against Shannon Landberg. Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. ended his career with a lost to Grover Wiles. Rocky Marciano ended his career against a badly faded Archie Moore. I could go on and on.

These greats have their reasons why they chose the opponents they chose for their last hurrah and most importantly their fans can/will justify their reasons for doing so. But for Floyd Mayweather it can’t be the case and it hasn’t been the case. Almost every major sports outlet, lead by ESPN, criticized Mayweather’s choice of two time former champ Andre Berto.
