title Tony Thompson wants to beat Joshua, then Deontay Wilder

thompson3By Scott Gilfoid: Before he gets a hoped for third world title fight against IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, #14 WBC Tony Thompson (40-5, 27 KOs) wants to beat Olympic medalists Anthony Joshua (10-0, 10 KOs) of Britain, and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) in back to back fights.

Thompson thinks Joshua still needs more schooling and that’s why he wants to face him first before he gets to Wilder and Klitschko. Thompson is impressed with the 6’6” Joshua’s skills, and he sees a bright future ahead of the heavily muscled Brit.

The 6’5” Thompson feels that Joshua isn’t ready for the lesson he’s going to give him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Malignaggi: Mayweather has too many weapons for Pacquiao

mayweather6778By Chris Williams: The going belief by a lot of boxing fans is that Manny Pacquiao, as good as he is, he lacks the ability to adapt like Floyd Mayweather Jr does, and he doesn’t have the same weaponry that the American superstar possesses.

This is something that former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi also believes about Pacquiao. Malignaggi thinks that Pacquiao can’t adapt the same way that Mayweather can, and he doesn’t see Pacquiao as having enough weapons in his arsenal to compete with Mayweather.

title Will the Fans Accept the Mayweather-Pacquiao winner as the Best Fighter In the World?

floyd7878By Chester Rivers: On May 3, 2015, millions of fans of either Mayweather or Pacquiao will have to admit they were wrong. Will they humbly offer their apologies to the fans of the victor and hail him as the best fighter or will they offer excuses as to why their ward loss? If I had to bet, my money would squarely be placed on the latter. Yes, I’m saying that no matter the outcome fans of the loser will not accept what is fact. In fact, some fans are already preparing their excuses just in case. Let’s take a look and see if their excuses are valid or just a poor attempt to hide from reality.

Let’s start with the fans of Floyd Mayweather Jr. RUMOR: The fight is fixed in Pacquiao’s favor and Floyd will make more money in the September rematch. Fans base this theory on the timing of the fight. This is the fifth fight of Floyd’s 6 fight deal with Showtime. This is also the biggest fight that can be made. Many fans are wondering about Floyd’s next opponent to complete his contract obligations. Read the rest of this entry »

title Team Fury: The Next Chapter

fury78By Olly Campbell: Almost four years ago, when being sentenced for his part in a violent brawl that left a man blind in one eye, then trainer and father of Tyson, “Gypsy” John Fury, told the judge he was extremely worried about the impact his jailing would have upon his sons boxing career.

At the time Tyson was the English heavyweight champion in preparation to fight Marcelo Nascimento and was just months out from his first victory over Dereck Chisora for the British Heavyweight title. It was February 2011. John Fury was sentenced to 11 years. Read the rest of this entry »

title Andre Ward: Froch isn’t dictating anything

ward56344By Scott Gilfoid: WBA Super World middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) responded on Tuesday to WBA 168 pound champion Carl Froch’s recent dare for him to come to the UK to fight him in his own home city of Nottingham at the Forest Grounds.

Froch says because he fought Ward in 2009 in the United States, then it’s now Ward’s turn to come over and fight Froch in his own country. Ward, however, says that Froch is not calling the shots. If they face each other it’s not going to be a case of Froch telling him what to do. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Who will fall in May?

floyd7By Dominic Panaia: What I find amazing is the misconception about opponents faced and the blatant disregard for facts about Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr having lost their power. We seem to make the assumption about Pacquiao and his lack of apparent power since 2009. However, if we check the facts, we see that Pacquiao’s opponents have had excellent chins during that time frame.

So it’s not easy to just assume Pacquiao has lost his power. Likewise we see Floyd Mayweather Jr has the same problem. Paquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has said on many occasions we are not afraid of Mayweather’s power, and so has Amir Khan and even Keith Thurman. They say his power won’t hurt us so why not get it on what’s the worst that can happen. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mayweather-Pacquiao: Debunking the most common Pacquiao boxing myths

pac234By Sizzle JKD:
Conventional thinking says that Floyd Mayweather Jr. will make “easy work” of Manny Pacquiao on May 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Conventional wisdom also leads casual boxing fans to think Mayweather will toy with Pacquiao because Mayweather defeated his previous 47 opponents in much the same manner.

Moreover, what strikes me as strange and peculiar is that some so-called “boxing fans” actually believe in their naive and credulous minds that Pacquiao possesses the exact same fighting style as Marcos Maidana, Canelo Alvarez, Zab Judah, Ricky Hatton, Roberto Guerrero, Victor Ortiz, Carlos Baldomir, Shamba Mitchell, and Oscar De La Hoya therefore, because of this notion, their flawed deductive reasoning tells them that Pacquiao will fall victim just like everybody else did.

title Pacquiao is Too Flawed of a Fighter to Defeat Mayweather Jr.

pac004By Chester Rivers: For a few minutes let’s speak on facts instead of impulse. Let’s talk about what is and not what we wish things to be. The simple fact is, in order to defeat Floyd Mayweather Jr. one must be better. Manny Pacquiao is a good fighter but he is simply too flawed to win on May 2, 2015.

When watching Pacquiao fight the first flaw that jumps off the screen is Pacquiao’s high guard. Pacquiao never counters and always shell up whenever his opponents throw punches. His guard is extremely high as if he’s trying to protect himself from an overhand right or some other looping punches. This high guard leaves his body exposed. Mayweather is under rated as a body puncher and this punch should be open all night. Read the rest of this entry »

title De La Hoya: After Kirkland, we [Canelo] want Cotto and Mayweather

canelo8999By Dan Ambrose: Oscar De La Hoya has already mapped out his flagship fighter Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s next fight after the James Kirkland fight on May 9th. If Canelo defeats Kirkland, then De La Hoya wants to match Canelo against Miguel Cotto and then Floyd Mayweather Jr.

For a fight between Canelo and Cotto to take place it’s going to require for Canelo to agree to a smaller slice of the pie, because the negotiations stalled recently over the purse split when Cotto and Canelo attempted to put a fight together. Read the rest of this entry »
