title Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Paquiao In The Making

pac4348By Sander Rennarb Aznarrac Jr. When Pound for Pound King Floyd Mayweather retired from boxing in 2007, an anticipated big fight with then unbeaten WBO titlist Miguel Cotto did not materialize. His successive wins against Oscar dela Hoya and Ricky Hatton may have warranted him a break from boxing that earned him fame and fortune. Some doubted his retirement as a decent way to dodge speculated challenge from formidable welterweights in Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, and Shane Mosley as front runners.

title Amir Khan: Sky’s the limit or limit’s the sky?

khan5342345By Brinsley Bailey: Call it destiny, good fortune or divine intervention but Amir Khan’s first round knockout loss to Breidis Prescott in September 2008 propelled Khan on the road toward boxing greatness. After his first loss, the British press and many boxing fans were quick to attack the “limited” Khan for his poor defence and tactics.

taylor454334By Philip H. Anselmo:

Arthur Abraham vs. Jermain Taylor

Arthur will beat Jermain over 12 decisively. Taylor will gain a personal victory by making it the 12 round distance, but will get out-hustled down the stretch, again. Abraham will open a lot of eyes after this performance. His skill-level must have been forgotten by the majority of Americans who are picking Taylor to win. It wasn’t that long ago that Arthur beat a fresher version of Edison Miranda, twice. Read the rest of this entry »



title Hopkins-Ornelas: Why Didn’t Bernard face a better Opponent for His Tune-Up?

hop66754448By Chris Williams: Bernard Hopkins (49-5-1, 32 KO’s) will be fighting Enrique Ornelas (29-5, 19 KO’s) in a tune-up bout on December 2nd at Liacouras Center, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is a warm-up bout for the 44-year-old Hopkins so that he can get prepared for a bout next year against Roy Jones Jr. That fight will be a huge money maker for Hopkins and Jones. However, what gripes me is why of all fighters for Hopkins to choose from, he chose Ornelas. What is up with that? Frankly, I think Ornelas, 29, is a lame choice for a fighter like Hopkins. I don’t mind a fighter like Hopkins fighting a tune-up bout, because goodness knows he needs one. Read the rest of this entry »
