title Pacquiao asked for a $5 million fine to be added to Mayweather contract language for anyone failing drug test?

floyd103By Chris Williams: In an interesting move, Manny Pacquiao says he asked for a huge $5 million fine to be included in the contract language for either fighter in case they fail their drug test for his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr on May 2nd if the fight negotiations get completed. This has yet to be confirmed yet, but this is what Pacquiao said in an interview with sunstar.com.ph.

In the past, the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight failed to happen in 2009 after the negotiations fell apart over the random blood testing that Mayweather wanted both fighters to agree to in order for the fight to go ahead. Read the rest of this entry »

title Gennady Golovkin – the latest sensation of a generation

By Matthew Plumridge: Boxing might not be great at many things – but one thing it does do better than any other sport is the ability to hype. Never has a sport been so good at making us think that so many will end up being amongst the chosen few.

To prove this, you only have to consider the current set of undisputed champions; Seth Mitchell at Heavyweight; Julio Cesar Chavez Jr at Middle; and the upcoming battle of the unbeatable Welterweights in Andre Berto and Adrien Broner. For what it is worth, my moneys’ on AB. Read the rest of this entry »



title Shades of Bruce Lee: Pacquiao, Mayweather, and the sweet science of boxing

pacquiao34By Sizzle JKD: Over the last 50 years, many boxers have said that one of their idols growing up while learning the fight game was the legendary Bruce Lee, who founded Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do in 1964. Although Lee began his career learning Wing Chun, much of his influence and technique came from Western fighting arts. Jeet Kune Do, which translates as “The Way of the Intercepting Fist” has its foundations in western fencing and boxing. In fact, much of Lee’s personal library consisted of books about the sweet science and fencing. Lee was also a boxing champion in China during his early years. Read the rest of this entry »



title How Sonny Liston and Muhammad Ali gave the boxing world two great debates

ali433434By Shaun La: Muhammad Ali is a contribution to the boxing world that won’t ever be replaced. The Greatest of All Time, The Louisville Lip, The People’s Champion are all titles that he carried into the boxing ring with a fighter’s heart, a charismatic character, and a man that stood up for his religious & political beliefs. Before Ali’s remarkable achievements in and out of the boxing ring, the pair of bouts that established his start of a legacy were with Sonny Liston.

For anyone who knows about the history of the heavyweight division, Liston will always make it on any given diehard boxing fan’s, hardest heavyweight punchers to ever live list. Such a list is not one to exclude any powerful heavyweight punchers, but just to remind people about the prestige of strength inside of the heavyweight division. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan could beat Pacquiao, says Roger Mayweather

khan343444By Scott Gilfoid: If the negotiations between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) go belly up this month, Roger Mayweather, the trainer for Floyd Jr., thinks that Pacquiao will taste defeat if he chooses former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) as his backup option for May 30th.

Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum have talked about wanting to use Khan as their plan-B opponent, as they see him as a viable opponent due to him being well-known and someone who might make it an interesting fight. Khan is clearly interested in facing Mayweather or Pacquiao, whichever shows him any interest. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather shuts down questions on Pacquiao negotiations

floyd7By Chris Williams: New York Daily News reporter Mitch Abramson attempted to question WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr during Sunday’s NBA Dunk contest in Brooklyn, New York and he was quick cut off by Mayweather, who pointed out that he wasn’t going to be answering boxing related questions during an NBA game.

It shows you how serious Mayweather is about wanting the Pacquiao fight. If Mayweather were to talk about the fight with the media, he’d likely be jumped on from all sides for discussing the negotiations with the boxing public. Read the rest of this entry »
