title Trinidad vs. De La Hoya brings shades of Pacquiao vs. Mayweather

floyd818181By Sizzle JKD: As I wait anxiously in anticipation of the “Super Bowl of Boxing” between undefeated WBC/WBA/The Ring welterweight champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. and WBO welterweight king Manny Pacquiao, I can’t help but remember 1999’s “The Fight of the Millennium” between Hall of Famers Felix Trinidad and Oscar De La Hoya.

Drawing comparisons to Trinidad-De La Hoya while hoping this year’s clash between boxing’s top two pound-for-pound pugilists won’t end in the same disappointing fashion as the 1999 mega fight, one can only wonder if Pacquiao-Mayweather will live up to the hype and perform much better than its predecessor.

title Khan: I can’t cry over the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight

khan53By Scott Gilfoid: Former IBF/WBA 140 pound belt holder Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) still feels he deserves to face Floyd Mayweather Jr or Manny Pacquiao if they fail to face each other next. Khan thinks his wins over Luis Collazo and Devon Alexander in his last two fights is enough to make him worthy of facing one of those two stars.

Unfortunately for Khan, it looks like Mayweather and Pacquiao will wind up facing each other and won’t need a backup option like Khan to fight. Read the rest of this entry »

By Scott Gilfoid: WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) sees his fight against #1 WBC Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs) as being a huge test for him and a very serious fight with a lot on the line when the two of them face each other next month on February 21st at the Salle des Étoiles, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

title Deontay Wilder will be ready to beat Wladimir Klitschko by next year

deontay105(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Papam Lord: I will start by saying if WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko fought right now, I think Wladimir wins by a 12 round decision. However, give it another year and the 6’7″ Wilder, after beating Britain’s Tyson Fury and possibly David Haye, will have the tools to do a proper demolish job on the 39-year-old Wladimir.

At some point during the fight with Wladimir, Wilder will land that big right and that is all he would need. I was as surprised as everyone else when Deontay fought an intelligent and mature fight against former WBCn heavyweight champion Bermane Steverne in beating him by a 12 round unanimous decision earlier this month on January 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Braehmer: Krasniqi has earned his shot

braehmer3445(Photo credit: Sebastian Heger) By Scott Gilfoid: While top light heavyweights like Adonis Stevenson, Sergey Kovalev and Jean Pascal get a ton of notoriety in the boxing world. WBA 175lb champion Jurgen Braehmer (45-2, 33 KOs) is largely forgotten about by many fans, and some of that is from his own doing and that of his promoters at Sauerland.

Braehmer, 36, is simply not fighting the kinds of guys that would get him the attention from fans outside of Germany, and that’s unfortunate for him because he’s missing out on winning over fans while he holds the WBA belt. On March 21st, Braehmer will be defending his title against his WBA mandatory challenger Robin Krasniqi (43-3, 16 KOs) at the Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

title Top Rank’s “contract” exposed

pac87By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: Top Rank CEO Bob Arum invited whoever would listen, Pacquiao fans, Floyd Mayweather Jr haters and any member of the press who would not question him on the fact that “Manny has agreed to everything, signed off on a contract and all that we’re waiting on is a signature from Floyd” upon his boat; The USS Signed Contract. The boat sailed along for weeks picking up people whenever it docked and sometimes people would abandon their own boats (opinions) mid water to climb aboard the prestigious luxurious boat.

All parties agreed to keep as much info out the media as possible, yet Arum chose to do otherwise. Mayweather and Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza maintained their stance that no contract had existed and that Showtime and HBO had not yet come an agreement on how the fight would be distributed. But by this time, it didn’t matter. The public had already made up its mind that it was Floyd holding things up because of his silence. Read the rest of this entry »
