Canelo with edge over Khan

1-CANELO ALVAREZ 01By Francisco Gurrola: Recently in my last article titled “Canelo with edge over Cotto,” I clearly described the way the fight would play out; to my surprise, it was quite accurate.

Come May 7th, 2016, we will be evidencing a great match up between Amir “King” Khan and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in a fight televised by HBO Championship Boxing at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Canelo with edge over Golovkin

1-canelo-cotto (9)By Francisco Gurrola: The thought and imagination of a potential clash between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will come to closure soon. It is a matter of time before these two warriors face each other insde the ring. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar de la Hoya has chosen to let the fight marinate a little longer before it takes place in late 2016. The decision makes a lot of economical sense, as business people their job is to make the most money out of their fighters; this is how you do it.

Gennady Golovkin an excellent fighter with great skills and power has shocked the boxing world and has made his name known and spoken of by many followers and fans of boxing. “GGG” is an exciting fighter that moves very well inside the ring, he closes the gaps between him and his opponent and goes in for the kill.

Berto fight, a tune-up fight for a Mayweather-Pacquiao rematch in 2016

1-_DSC0743By Paco Gurrola: Readers, bloggers and critics are all trying to make sense of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s recent move in choosing to fight former IBF/WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto on September 12th. To some it seems illogical, to some it really doesn’t matter and to others, it somewhat makes sense.

There is no straight answer to it, but to me this is as transparent as the air we breathe. It makes complete sense that Floyd “Money” Mayweather would not risk getting into a fight he is not 100% sure he can win; at least not at this stage of his career. This could “potentially” be the last fight of his brilliant boxing career.

Mayweather v Pacquiao: Thoughts and STILL possible rematch…

1-MAYPAC-FIGHTNIGHT-TRAPPFOTOS-5730By Francisco Gurrola Jr. – A lot of people are asking for a rematch and some say there is no need. The fact is that both Floyd Mayweather Jr’s fans and Manny Pacquiao’s fans admit that the fight was not what was expected from both of these fighters.

Yes, it was expected that Mayweather would simply do what he does best, but what was not expected was that Manny did not throw enough punches. As a boxing fan and follower i felt let down by the fight overall. I thought that the fight would be a huge turnout with a more even scorecard; unfortunately for a lot of fans and myself that was not the case.
