Will Pacquiao drag Cotto down to 147 to fight him?

Cotto Pacquiao Cotto vs. Pacquiao  miguel cotto manny pacquiao By Chris Williams: If Miguel Cotto wants the big money rematch with Manny Pacquiao that he’s been after since getting thrashed by him in 2009, Cotto will likely have to play it by Pacquiao’s rules by coming all the way down to 147lbs rather than the Filipino star agreeing to fight him at a catchweight like he did the last time the two fighters fought.

Floyd and Manny – Still an Intriguing Match Up?

Mayweather Pacquiao Mayweather vs. Pacquiao  manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Davey Hogg: I’m sure that if you asked any boxing enthusiast only a year ago whether or not Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao would be competitive, it would be hard to imagine many of them saying no. After all, “Money” was coming of an impressive masterclass against future hall of famer, Shane Mosley, in a fight where he showed he had true grit to add to his seemingly endless talents.

Kelly Pavlik will have problems at super middleweight; Rodriguez-George on March 17th

 kelly pavlik edwin rodriguez By Dan Ambrose: Former WBC/WBO middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (37-2, 32 KO’s) has been busy training with his new trainer Robert Garcia in Oxnard, California. Pavlik, 29, is reportedly in his second week of workouts with Garcia and is looking to get in shape for a tune-up fight in April or May in the super middleweight division.

Pavlik can no longer make the 160 pound middleweight weight limit and is forced now to fight in the much more stacked 168 pound division with excellent fighters like Carl Froch, Lucian Bute, Andre Ward, Anthony Dirrell, Glen Johnson, Andre Dirrell, Robert Stieglitz, Mikkel Kessler, and Edwin Rodriguez.

Pacquiao doesn’t deserve a 50-50 split with Mayweather: This isn’t charity

Pacquiao Mayweather Pacquiao vs  manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Chris Williams: I’m in full agreement with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in not agreeing to fight a guy that he sees as a lesser fighter than him for a 50-50 deal in Manny Pacquiao. Why give someone a 50-50 deal when they can’t even conclusively beat opposition that you yourself beat? This isn’t mercy on Mayweather’s part to give a guy that is starting to look like he’s losing it an even 50-50 deal. Forget that. All those god awful catchweight handicap fights for Pacquiao, his bouts against old fading fighters from the Top Rank stable and his fights against weight drained guys. Pacquiao’s resume for the past few years just doesn’t stack up to be someone worth getting a 50-50 deal. In this society, you’re paid based on your accomplishments and I don’t see much of that from Pacquiao. With the opposition he’s faced, it’s like he’s been given a chair to stand on to pick up wins.

Khan could face Mosley if Peterson takes Marquez or Pacquiao fight

Peterson Marquez Peterson vs. Marquez Khan Mosley Khan vs. Mosley  manny pacquiao lamont peterson juan manuel marquez amir khan By Scott Gilfoid: Despite having given a recent ultimatum to IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson that he only had a few more days to agree to a rematch, Amir Khan (26-2, 18 KO’s) is still sitting and waiting to see what Peterson will do in terms of his next fight. It’s funny how Khan tried to bluff Peterson and is being completely ignored by him. Read the rest of this entry »



David Price to fight in March in U.S, then face Tyson Fury in April or May

Fury Price Fury vs. Price  tyson fury david price By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated heavyweight prospect David Price (12-0, 10 KO’s) plans on having a really busy schedule in the next four months with a possible fight in the United States on March 16th on the undercard of Matthew Macklin – Sergio Martinez at Madison Square Garden in New York, and then a fight against British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (17-0, 12 KO’s) a month or two later in April or May. It seems pretty obvious that Price’s opponent for March will be someone dragged in from a morgue. If Price is to be facing Fury a month later, he won’t be able to afford facing someone that can actually punch back and have a chance of knocking him out like Roberto Cammarelle and Bermane Stiverne did in the amateur ranks.
