title Muhammad Ali’s publicist says Ali isn’t picking Pacquiao over Mayweather

pacquiao4534By Chris Williams: After an earlier report by TMZ about boxing great Muhammad Ali giving support to Team Pacquiao for Manny Pacquiao’s fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr on May 2nd, Ali’s publicist is saying that it’s absolutely false. Ali isn’t giving a preference either way for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

Many of Pacquiao’s fans were quite pleased when TMZ broke the story about Ali’s daughter Rashedi saying that Ali is “Team Pacquiao all the way.” Read the rest of this entry »

title Is Pacquiao the wrong opponent for Mayweather?

pac77777777By Yannis Mihanos: Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) has arguably been caught in far too many difficult fights than his counterpart Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26 KOs). At times these fights proved right for Manny and at other times proved wrong.

As I described in a previous article surprisingly it’s the wrong fight that reveals the real face of the fighter. There it appears his talent on its truest form and full scale. It’s the occasion that shows from what he’s made of. And that happens only against fighters who are close, equal or even above his class. These are fights that the fighter is tested mentally and physically. Read the rest of this entry »



title Beterbiev wants Kovalev fight, not worried about Campillo fight

press conference-0003 - Artur Beterbiev(Credit: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS) By Allan Fox: This Saturday night unbeaten #11 WBA light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will be fighting 36-year-old former WBA cruiserweight champion Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 12 KOs) in a 12 round bout on the undercard of the Adonis Stevenson vs. Sakio Bika fight at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Beterbiev isn’t worried at all about the Campillo fight. He sees it as a bout that he’ll definitely win. The bout that he wants is against IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev. Read the rest of this entry »



title Felix Sturm vs. Fedor Chudinov for WBA regular 168lb title, Froch to be stripped?

sturm543445By Scott Gilfoid: On May 9th, former IBF/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Felix Sturm (39-4-3, 18 KOs) will be challenging interim WBA super middleweight champion Fedor Chudinov (12-0, 10 KOs) at the Festhalle, Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany. According to Fightnews.com, the 36-year-old Sturm and Chudinov will be fighting for the WBA regular super middleweight title.

This is the belt that is currently in the hands of Carl Froch. This means that he’ll be stripped of his WBA 168 pound strap by the World Boxing Association. The reason why Froch will be stripped is because he didn’t agree to the negotiations with Andre Ward after the WBA ordered the Ward-Froch fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Adonis Stevenson ready to battle Sakio Bika in toe-to-toe war

press conference-0013 - Adonis Stevenson - CBS(Photo credit: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS) By Dan Ambrose: WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) faces arguably the toughest opponent of his career when he faces Sakio Bika (25-1, 21 KOs) this Saturday night at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Stevenson, 37, says he wants the fight to be a toe-to-toe war with Bika.

With the way that Bika fights, I don’t think Stevenson will have any other choice but to make the fight a war. Even if he wants to play it safe by standing on the outside to pot shot all night long, Bika is going to crowd him a lot in this fight and nail him with big looping bombs.

title Amir Khan: The reality of a talented boxer

khan1By Sebastian Mora: Amir “KING” Khan, the man who claims to have the fastest hands in boxing, the biggest heart, and also the boxing skills to beat the pound for pound best Floyd Mayweather in a chess match. If you watch his fights, you do see a talented boxer, you also see a boxer that fights every round with passion and determination, and most importantly a fighter that believes every single word that comes out of his mouth.

The question is, why has he not yet gained the respect of so many hardcore boxing fans? Is it because he’s gotten stopped twice? Nope. Is it because he talks a lot of trash? Nope. Is it because he’s from the UK? I don’t think so. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao’s Three Major Strengths Against Mayweather

pac723By Raj Parmar: As the time ticks down to the opening bell for the long awaited showdown between modern boxing greats Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, many wonder if the “Pacman” can be the one to halt Mayweather’s almost 20 year undefeated run as a professional prizefighter.

Heavyweight legend Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record is seen as a treasured jewel in the sport of boxing and at 47-0, Floyd is quickly nearing Marciano’s mark. Mayweather however may be facing his toughest test in the form of the eight division world champion Pacquiao in a match-up that fans have been craving for over five years.

title Sakio Bika: I’ll be the one to knockout Adonis Stevenson

press conference-0010 - Sakio Bika Adonis Stevenson faceoff1(Photo Credit: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS) By Dan Ambrose: Former WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs) isn’t going to let IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev be the one to knockout WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) because he plans on doing it this Saturday night when he faces Stevenson on Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on CBS at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Bika, 35, acknowledges that Stevenson can really punch, but he feels he’s going to be able to take anything he can dish out. But Bika has doubts whether Stevenson will be able to take his own punching power when the two of them get inside the ring. Read the rest of this entry »
