title Arum: If Khan keeps shooting off his mouth about Pacquiao, I’ll arrange the fight

khan333By Scott Gilfoid: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says that he might put together a fight between his fighter former eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao and Britain’s Amir Khan if he keeps hearing Khan blabbing about wanting to fight Pacquiao like he’s been doing as of late.

Ever since Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced his mismatch with Andre Berto on September 12th, Khan has switched his focus in flapping his gums 24/7 about a fight against Mayweather to now talking endlessly about wanting to fight Pacquiao in 2016 in Dubai. Read the rest of this entry »



title Wladimir Klitschko will beat Tyson Fury, says Anthony Joshua

fury111By Scott Gilfoid: Well, it doesn’t look like No.1 WBO Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) will be beating 39-year-old IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) in their fight on October 24th at the ESPRIT Arena in Dussedorf, Germany.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua is writing off the 6’9” Fury as not having the experience and just plain not being good enough to get the job done when he gets inside the ring with the 6’6” Klitschko. Fury, 26, is a lot younger than Wladimir, but his youth and inability to punch appears to be too much of a handicap for him to win this fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Khan wants Thurman, Peterson or Garcia for next fight

khan677777777(Photo credit: Sumio Yamada) By Scott Gilfoid: Former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan appears to have finally come to terms with the fact that he won’t be fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. in September. Khan instead says he’s interested in fighting Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia or Lamont Peterson. Like always, Khan says he’ll leave it in hands of his adviser Al Haymon to pick out his next opponent.

Khan doesn’t say who Haymon is looking to find for him, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the above mentioned fighters are last on the list of fighters that he’s looking to match Khan against. Read the rest of this entry »

title Tim Bradley vs. Brandon Rios still possible for December

bradley222By Chris Williams: Last Friday the World Boxing Organization ordered newly crowned WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley to start negotiations with WBO No.1 contender Sadam Ali for a fight that would take place before the end of the year. However, Bradley’s promoters at Top Rank are interested in matching Bradley against the highly popular former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios for a fight that they’d like to take place in December, according to Dan Rafael.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is likely to sit down with Ali’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions to discuss a step aside deal for Ali to step aside for a certain amount of money. Read the rest of this entry »



title Berto fight, a tune-up fight for a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch in 2016

1-_DSC0743By Paco Gurrola: Readers, bloggers and critics are all trying to make sense of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s recent move in choosing to fight former IBF/WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto on September 12th. To some it seems illogical, to some it really doesn’t matter and to others, it somewhat makes sense.

There is no straight answer to it, but to me this is as transparent as the air we breathe. It makes complete sense that Floyd “Money” Mayweather would not risk getting into a fight he is not 100% sure he can win; at least not at this stage of his career. This could “potentially” be the last fight of his brilliant boxing career. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayorga: Golovkin can work as my sparring partner

golovkin64By Allan Fox: Former two division world champion Ricardo Mayorga (31-8-1, 25 KOs) says if IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) wants a job, he can work as his sparring partner to help him get ready for his fight against former three division world champion Shane Mosley (47-9-1, 39 KOs) on August 29th on pay-per-view from The Forum in Inglewood, California.

Mayorga says he doesn’t know who Golovkin is, and wasn’t aware of what weight class he fights in until he was told by the interviewer. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather Jr vs. Berto: Can Andre beat Floyd?

1-_DSC0856By Gerardo Granados: As much as only a few people have tried to hype Andre Berto W30 (23)-L3-D0 as a dangerous foe for the undefeated and undisputed welterweight Champion of the World Floyd Mayweather Jr. W48 (26)-L0-D0 it is evident that all around the internet you can find boxing sites – forums in which this particular bout have been diminished to an authentic mismatch not worth to pay for.

It was really odd to see how Floyd praised Andre on their first press conference. It was like going into a used car dealer and listen to the salesman trying to convince you on how great the old SUV is; telling you that you should not pay attention to the dents on the bodywork or the high mileage and high fuel consumption of the vehicle, because the salesman believes it is a great car but also tells you that he doesn’t care if you buy it or not.

title Joshua: Dillian Whyte is just another opponent

joshua100By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten #2 WBC heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs) says he’s not worried about facing unbeaten KO artist Dillian Whyte (15-0, 12 KOs) later this year in December, because Joshua sees it as just another fight for him. In other words, Joshua isn’t worried at all about fighting the hard hitting Whyte, even though he batted Joshua around the ring when the two of them fought each other six years ago. Joshua says he’s not even bothered if he loses the fight to Whyte.

Joshua chocks the loss up to Whyte being more experienced at the time than he was. However, Joshua doesn’t appear to have improved as a fighter in all of those years, so it’s hard to see how anything will be different the second time around. Read the rest of this entry »



title Keith Thurman educates reporters on “Regular” Champ vs. “Super” Champ

thurman4By Danny Esch: Keith “One Time” Thurman was at a round table discussion with reporters from many news outlets and he was asked many questions about Khan, Collazo, Mayweather vs. Berto plus the term “regular” vs. “super” champion.

Fans of the sport both die hard and casual have heard the term “regular” champ used in regards to Keith “One Time” Thurman especially, and as far as this interview in particular the reporters that were present did not understand the meaning of the term “regular” Champion and Keith educated them all on the meaning and the guidelines of “Super” Champion status.
