title Pacquiao taking a lot of heat over shoulder injury

1-MAYPAC-FIGHTNIGHT-TRAPPFOTOS-5568By Dan Ambrose: Manny Pacquiao is taking a lot of heat right now not only from the boxing public but from a lot of writers for failing to disclose his right shoulder injury before his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to Yahoo Sports, Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz checked off a ‘No’ in a pre-fight medical form for the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for question No.6, which asked “Have you had any injury to your shoulders, elbows or hands that needed evaluation or examination?

title Pacquiao to have surgery this week to repair right shoulder, expected to miss 9 months

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny PacquiaoBy Chris Williams: After losing a 12 round unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last Saturday night in one of Pacquiao’s worst performances of his 20-year pro career, Pacquiao will be undergoing surgery this week to have his injured right shoulder repaired, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN.

title Deontay Wilder vs. Eric Molina possible for June

deontay4444By Scott Gilfoid: #12 WBC Eric Molina (23-2, 17 KOs) is one of the names that is being mentioned as a possibility for the first title defense for WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) this June, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN.

But since that fight, the 33-year-old Molina has turned things around with five straight wins with his last three coming by knockout. Read the rest of this entry »
