title Will Haye Make Excuses When He Loses to Wladimir?

By Chris Williams: In looking at how David Haye has come across as supremely confident about being able to knockout a “boring” IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, I’m wondering what Haye’s behavior will be like if he’s beaten by Wladimir? I don’t know why but I get the sense that Haye is the type that will start offering up immediate excuses after the loss rather than kissing Klitschko’s backside like he should be doing after a loss.

lee43334By Sean McDaniel: It’s disappointing how far middleweight Andy Lee’s star has faded since his 7th round stoppage loss to Brian Vera last year. In that fight, Lee had Vera hurt early in the fight but was unable to finish him off. Vera then stuck around and began to batter the tall, slender 6’2” Lee with big right hands in the 6th and 7th, wobbling Lee and puffing up his face. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather Jr. Still Sees Himself as the #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter

By Jason Kim: Recently, I was kind of stunned to see Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KOs) trying to argue his case as to why he should still be the number #1 pound-for-pound boxing star in the sport despite having been out of the sport for two years. Mayweather, 32, was coming at it from the angle that he hadn’t been beaten so therefore he should still be the number #1 star in boxing. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mosley, Cotto and Mayweather Should Tell Pacquiao What He Can Do With His “Catch Weight”

By Manuel Perez: I don’t care if we never see Manny Pacquiao face Shane Mosley, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto if it means that these fighters have to meet Pacquiao at a catch weight.

title Was Hatton Ruined By Mayweather?

hat5466By William Mackay: Lately in the past week, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been taking credit for supposedly ruining Hatton as a fighter by knocking him out in the 10th round in their December 2007 bout. While Hatton did end up getting knocked out in the fight, it wasn’t anything close to being a particularly nasty knockout like the one that Hatton suffered in his 2nd round knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao on May 2nd.
