title Pacquiao ain’t knocked nobody out in 8 years, says Jeff Mayweather

jmm_ko_pacBy Chris Williams: In the last couple of weeks Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has been talking loud and hard about how Pacquiao is going to knock Floyd Mayweather Jr out when they face each other on May 2nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Mayweather’s uncle Jeff Mayweather isn’t buying any of what Roach is trying to sell in that regard. Jeff points out that Pacquiao hasn’t knocked anyone out in the past eight years. Jeff is actually off by two years, but he’s closest enough to make his point understood. Read the rest of this entry »

title Just One Clean Hit from Manny Pacquiao

pacBy Bill Christian Gabay: I am one of the biggest boxing fans fans out there. And just like millions around the world, I too have been waiting for years for him to face Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in the ring. Now that the match is finally happening, I am still of the opinion that this is Mayweather’s fight to lose.

Mayweather is the bigger, smarter, and arguably faster fighter. He is a defensive master and is extremely elusive in the ring. It is very rare that you will see him get caught clean. He is an extremely talented counter-puncher too. If you thought Juan Manual Marquez was a very good counter-puncher, watch Floyd and his reaction time. Fighting someone who dodges and blocks all your attacks and counter-punches effectively at the same time is no easy task. Read the rest of this entry »

title PBC on NBC premiere a success with Thurman-Guerrero toe-to-toe

thurman331211By Bill Christian Gabay: It did not start off very well. NBC producers were probably getting a bit anxious what with John Molina Jr. (27-6, 22 KOs) deciding to be Adrien Broner’s (30-1, 22 KOs) punching bag for 12 rounds in their fight last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fans at ringside could be seen on TV looking at their cellphones, talking to their companions or looking other directions away from the ring.

But that bout did go as expected. Molina lost his last 2 fights and was no match for the faster, craftier and more skillful Broner. Read the rest of this entry »

By Dan Ambrose: The CAT scan test on WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman’s head turned up negative for damage from the head-butt he suffered last night in his 12 round unanimous decision win over Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Malignaggi: Mayweather has too many weapons for Pacquiao

floyd33By Chris Williams: WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) is too limited to beat WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (46-0, 26 KOs), and he lacks the proper weaponry, says Showtime commentator Paulie Malignaggi.

Pacquiao will have problems with Mayweather’s body attack in their fight on May 2nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Malignaggi said. Read the rest of this entry »

title Thurman poses a big threat to Mayweather and Pacquiao, says Malignaggi

thurman33By Chris Williams: WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs) showed the boxing world that he’s for real last night in beating Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero by an impressive 12 round unanimous decision at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The victory by Thurman has some boxing fans thinking that Thurman is ready to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao. Former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi isn’t saying that Thurman will beat those two superstars, but he definitely sees him as a big threat to beating both of them due to his power, hand speed and counter punching ability.

title Is Adrien Broner destined to fail again?

broner456By DA: If you watched Premiere Boxing Champions on NBC last night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, you’ll have noticed that former three division world champion Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KOs) looked good fighting a totally shot looking and gun-shy John Molina in beating him by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision. I already hear people claiming the fight may have been fixed or Molina took a dive etc etc.

People forget the 32-year-old Molina is coming off two brutal wars with Lucas Matthysse and Humberto Soto, both whom dropped Molina and beat him to a pulp. Not to mention John Molina has also been knocked out by Antonio Demarco in the first round a few years ago. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan wants Cotto, Bradley, Marquez or Mayweather-Pacquiao winner at Wembley Stadium

By Scott Gilfoid: In a clear sign that Amir Khan’s adviser Al Haymon still hasn’t found an opponent for his next fight in May or June, Khan is still yakking about him wanting to fight Miguel Cotto, Tim Bradley, Juan Manuel Marquez and the winner of the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. This time, Khan is saying he wants them to come over to the UK and fight him at Wembley Stadium in London. I really don’t see that happening. Read the rest of this entry »

title Guerrero wants rematch with Thurman

guerrero444688888By Dan Ambrose: Despite taking a punishing 12 round unanimous decision loss last Saturday night to WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (25-0, 21 KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) says he would like to get a rematch against the hard-hitting 26-year-old Thurman if possible.

Guerrero, 31, thinks he could do things differently in the rematch to improve upon the way he fought last night, starting with using his jab more. Guerrero believes he made a mistake by abandoning his jab early on in the fight and just plodding into Thurman’s shots. Read the rest of this entry »

title Broner blames his loss to Maidana on ‘fighting for the crowd’

broner44442222By Dan Ambrose: If you had the chance to catch former three division world champion Adrien Broner’s post-fight interview last night after his victory over a very timid-looking John Molina (27-6, 22 KOs), you’ll have noticed that Broner blamed his 2013 defeat at the hands of Marcos Maidana on Broner fighting for the crowd.

In other words, the only reason why Broner lost to Maidana was because he was trying to make it exciting for the crowd rather than him simply looking to fight smart and get a victory anyway possible. Read the rest of this entry »
