title Mayweather-Marquez Fight: Five things we learned

marquez543434 By Don Ramos:

1. Call a spade a spade: it was a mismatch from the start. There was never any doubt on the result of the match. Even the betting odds were 4-1 in favour of Mayweather.

The fight proved that Mayweather still has his boxing skills intact. This is not unusual, given he is young and is gifted with natural fighting ability. Other fighters had come back from retirement and made impressive wins. One good example is when Sugar Ray Leonard came out of retirement to win over the Marvin Hagler.

title Pacquiao/Mayweather: Pre-Destined?

mayweather432By Trevor Weis: The King has been challenged. Mayweather ended his 21-month layoff showing no signs of rust or age, dismantling the technical veteran Juan Manuel Marquez in 12 one-sided rounds. The former pound-for-pound king made Marquez look like a sparring partner, rolling his shoulder and dancing away from punches. Money landed close to 50% of total punches, while Marquez was only able to land an embarrassing 12%, with only 21 jabs throughout the 12 round fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title David Haye: Fighting scared?

haye5463445By Aykan Tahir: In 2008 David Haye stated live on Setanta Sports that he would retire from the ring on his 31st Birthday. This gives him just a shade over 2 years to win and unify the heavyweight belts, not an impossible task but has Haye already burnt the bridges that would have allowed him access to these belts? If he does manage to unify all of the belts then he can fall back on his “retire at 31” statement without the need to defend the belts and potentially lose them to fighters who are not near retirement age and past their best.
