title Mayweather vs. Pacquiao: Think the fans are dumb?

pac77777By Frank Car: So, I am not going to laden this with F-bombs, but I am going to say this. As all of you probably know Floyd Mayweather Jr released a video — which he took himself and picked out a portion of his liking to show — of him apparently trying to get the Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao bout made. So without further ado… Hey, Mayweather, how [expletive] dumb do you think the fans are? Seriously.

Several years ago I wrote an article on this same site entitled ‘Mayweather vs Pacquaio “[expletive] You!” -Your Fans’.

Echo. Echo. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan: Mayweather, Pacquiao, Cotto, Bradley and Marquez are available to fight in May

khan454By Scott Gilfoid: It seems that Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) has widened his net from just focusing on wanting to get big money fights against Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao to wanting to get bouts against the likes of Miguel Cotto, Tim Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez or his next available date in May.

Khan is hoping that one of those fighters will agree to face him. By Khan creating a bigger net to catch one of the bigger stars, he hopes to be able to get at least one of them to agree to fight him. But sadly, I can see all five of them passing on the idea of facing the Showtime fighter. Read the rest of this entry »

title Bernard Hopkins to Froch: You’re a fraud!!

By Scott Gilfoid: After hearing that WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch saw a fight with him as a “lose-lose” situation due to his advanced age and the blowback criticism that he would receive should he lose the fight, 50-year-old former two division world champion Bernard Hopkins came out on attack on Sunday in calling Froch a fraud.

title Prediction: Mayweather to fight Cotto on May 2nd

floyd93By Nasir Jawaid: Floyd Mayweather Jr has recently taken to his Instagram and Twitter to show how determined he is to make boxing’s biggest fight. A short video of the meeting that took place between Floyd and Manny Pacquiao is now circulating the web.

Mayweather is stating they have to give boxing its biggest fight (referring to himself and Pacquiao). However, I see this as a massive smokescreen for Mayweather to announce a Miguel Cotto fight on May 2nd. Read the rest of this entry »

title Oscar De La Hoya puts the Mayweather-Pacquiao “A-Side/B-Side” talks to rest

dela3434By Sizzle JKD: Much has been made about the pay-per-view money split between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. It has reportedly been agreed upon by both camps that Mayweather will be receiving 60% of the pay-per-view split and Pacquiao will get 40% once the fight is made.

Speaking with Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports on Friday, Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De Le Hoya said that although Mayweather holds the leverage in the negotiations with Pacquiao, he isn’t surprised that Pacquiao is getting 40% of the pot while Floyd only received 20% when Mayweather fought De La Hoya in 2007.

title Groves will need tune-up bout while he waits for Anthony Dirrell

groves566By Scott Gilfoid: Sauerland Events, the promoters for #1 WBC, #4 IBF, #4 WBA super middleweight contender George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs), are going to need to start looking for another stay busy fight for Groves to keep him active while he waits for his eventual title shot against WBC super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell (29-0-1, 22 KOs) in the autumn.

The World Boxing Council announced this week that Dirrell, 29, can have a voluntary title defense of his WBC title in April before he defends his strap against Groves. That’s something that Groves can’t get around unless Dirrell decides to forget about the voluntary defense and instead face Groves next. Read the rest of this entry »

title Artur Beterbiev to fight on April 4th on Stevenson card in Quebec, Canada

beterbiev66By Dan Ambrose: #11 WBA light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will be fighting on April 4th against a still to be determined opponent in a 10 round scheduled bout on the same card as headliner WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson in Quebec, Canada.

Beterbiev, 30, could have fought #2 WBC 175 pound contender Isaac Chilemba, but either Beterbiev or his promoters were reportedly not interested in that fight. Chilemba thinks Beterbiev is scared of him and he’s been letting boxing fans know about it on his twitter account. Read the rest of this entry »

title Is Canelo sabotaging himself by competing with Mayweather’s fight dates?

canelo7657By Dan Ambrose: As of now former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1, 31 KOs) is scheduled to be fighting on the May 2nd Cinco de Mayo holiday against James Kirkland (32-1, 28 KOs) at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

This is one of the two Mexican fight dates that the 24-year-old Canelo wants to fight each year; the other date is in September on the Mexican Independence Day holiday. The problem here is Floyd Mayweather Jr has already staked out the May 2nd date for his next fight, be it against Manny Pacquiao or perhaps another opponent if the fight can’t get made.

title Mike Perez back with a win over Darnell Wilson

By Gav Duthie: After a turbulent 2014 following the Magomed Abdusalamov tragedy Cuban heavyweight Mike Perez (21-1-1, 13 KOs) temporarily stepped away from the top level limelight with a stay active fight against Darnell Wilson 25-19-3 (21) on February 5 at The Hangar, Costa Mesa, California, USA.

title Froch: If I lose to Hopkins, people will say I’ve ruined my legacy

froch99By Scott Gilfoid: WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch recently ruled out a fight against 50-year-old boxing legend Bernard Hopkins for the summer, even though the fight would likely bring both fighters boatloads of sweet cash.

It’s really a win-win fight for both guys, because it would give the two aging fighters a chance to display their wares before the boxing public before they sail off into the sunset for a permanent retirement. Read the rest of this entry »
