Boxing Thread: Floyd Mayweather's 50-0 Record Surpassed

Recommended Posts

Joshua is legit the most overrated boxer ever, he is beating old has beens and struggling against anyone close to his age. Fury and Wilder would beat him easily

I agree (about the over - rated bit!)

If he doesn't fight the winner of fury/wilder then he's a duck of the highest order.

Fighting cans in his home stadium over and over. But then again, Wilder has been fighting idiots in some random casino in friggin Alabama for what seems like his entire career.

 

Boxing is cringe.

Lol yeah I think Cash has a much better grasp than you. He said it best, wilder has exclusively fought cans lol, fury himself is washed up. Boxing is just cringe with very few top contenders. There's no way you can say with certainty wilder beats AJ when he hasn't had any real meaningful fights.

Fury is not washed up mate - he's just turned 30. I know a dude who has sparred with both fury and AJ and reckons fury is the more natural and fluid of the two.

 

Agree about wilder though - at the moment there is no way of knowing how good he is because he's not fought any real names. We could actually be set for an awesome 12 months of HW boxing with a bit of luck.

Fighting Megasoup over and over is just sort of what you do in boxing. You wait until you have at least six belts for your manager to parade around before you fight anyone without a losing record.

https://www.skysports.com/boxing/news/12183/11508101/deontay-wilders-team-have-ruled-out-a-meeting-with-anthony-joshua-promoters

skysports-deontay-wilder-boxing_4365937.

Deontay Wilder's representatives have "no desire" for a meeting to negotiate a fight against Anthony Joshua.

 

IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Joshua, moments after beating Alexander Povetkin at the weekend, made it clear that his preferred next opponent would be WBC titleholder Wilder.

 

Wilder is first due to face Tyson Fury but Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and his father Barry have sought meetings on a number of occasions to reopen negotiations, with a view to staging a Wembley Stadium showdown for the undisputed title on April 13.

 

"I have sent three separate emails to Barry saying that I have no desire to meet with Barry unless I have a real offer for Wilder to meet Joshua," the WBC champion's representative Shelly Finkel told Sky Sports.

 

"He and I have been in the business long enough to know what that offer would look like."

 

Eddie Hearn had previously told Sky Sports: "We have got a couple of months. We have made it quite clear we don't want to wait until [Wilder fights Fury on] December 1 to see what happens.

 

"We want to get a deal in place to know before then.

 

"The absolute sole focus for us right now is to fight Deontay Wilder for the undisputed title in April."

Legit laughing.

 

I don't know the first thing about boxing, but I'm usually pretty good at predicting these fights, or matches as I prefer to call them. I think Fury will beat Wilder

There is a "big 3" in the heavyweight division. Two of them sign to fight, and naturally the one who is left out has to stay relevant.

I admire what Eddie and AJ have accomplished together. Dude is fighting in front of 70k+ fans and making 20M a fight.

 

However, I think they've misjudged things a bit. They thought that fury and wilder would fall over themselves to fight Joshua and are a little on the backfoot now that they're booked to fight each other.

 

Joshua has Wembley booked for April. There's a real risk that he'll have to fight another mandatory challenger because I don't see how he gets a deal done with wilder or fury before those guys fight in December.

 

Wilder v AJ is still no nearer happening imo

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if its still a fight or two away. Joshua getting to the stage of the real problem that he's taken out most legit challengers.

 

Guys like Jarrell Miller, Otto Wallin and Trevor Bryan are not going to be big draws even though they are tough fights.

Whyte has a credible claim for a rematch. Not a bad fight to make. He's improved a lot since their first fight

Personally think it would be unwise for Whyte to go for a rematch now. Realistically if he loses again I cant see him getting many more chances at the big show I like how he's going after Wilder or Fury. The second fight between those two will always be there as long as both keep winning.

 

He should go after Povetkin or Ortiz. He dispatches either of them more easily than Joshua or Wilder then he's only builds the hype more.

Rocky Fielding to face Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez at Madison Square Garden

Rocky Fielding

Liverpool's Rocky Fielding will face Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez at Madison Square Garden in New York on 15 December.

Fielding, 31, won a version of the WBA world super-middleweight title in his last bout, beating German Tyron Zeuge.

Alvarez has held world titles in two weight divisions but has not contested a world crown at super-middleweight.

The Mexican, 28, goes into the bout off the back of two middleweight contests with Gennady Golovkin, winning a rematch after an initial draw.

Alvarez, who drew controversy for two failed drug tests he later blamed on contaminated meat in his homeland, represents the stiffest test of Fielding's career by some distance.

"Taking a big challenge more in my career and representing the WBC as 160lbs champion now I will fight for the world title for the 168lbs," tweeted Alvarez, who still holds the WBC and WBA titles at middleweight.

Fielding will put his WBA 'regular' title on the line. The WBA recognises a 'regular' and 'super' champion - Liverpool's Callum Smith, who inflicted the only defeat of Fielding's career in 2015.

say it isn't so -

I know right I was going to say this is out of left field but think that would be an understatement.

Got to give Hearn his due though, win or lose he's probably got another fight out of this with Callum Smith.

Controversy: Billy Joe Saunders has been refused a licence

Billy Joe Saunders looks set to lose his WBO middleweight title after being refused a licence to fight against Demetrius Andrade.

Saunders, 29, returned an adverse finding in a Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) test in August.

The Massachusetts State Athletic Commission (MSAC), which was due to sanction his title defence in Boston on 20 October, has denied him a licence.

The WBO says Saunders has the right to appeal to retain his title belt.

But if the Englishman fails to satisfy the WBO appeal, it says it will "declare the title vacant".

An alternative opponent, Namibia’s Walter Kautondokwa, has already been brought in to take on Andrade while the WBO sanctioning body goes through the legal process of officially stripping the Welwyn Garden City fighter of his belt.

Saunders is said to have been connected to the licence hearing on a telephone conference call and to have greeted the commission’s ruling by telling them over the line: “You can all suck my prick".

Floyd Mayweather's 50-0 Record Surpassed

Image result for Wanheng Menayothin

Strawweight world titlist Wanheng Menayothin moved to 51-0 -- surpassing the 50-0 mark Floyd Mayweather retired with last August -- as he won a unanimous decision against Pedro Taduran.

Outboxing the somewhat limited but tough and game 21 year old Taduran, a southpaw from Manila in The Philippines who has never been stopped as a pro, who fell to 12-2 with the defeat, Menayothin emerged victorious by margins of 118-110, 117-110 and 115-110. This win marked Meneyothin’s eleventh world title retention and the 105 pound warrior has held the title since 2014. He will next face the winner of a Simphiwe Knonco vs. Tsubasa Koura final eliminator.

“The Dwarf Giant,” as Menayothin is colourfully known, now has a secure place in the history books, but what might he do next? Menayothin has said that he aims to have five more fights but that he will retire if he suffers a defeat along the way to reaching an even more impressive 56-0. Fights that would cement his legacy even further would be fights against Thammanoon Niyomtrong the WBA champion and Victorio Saludar the WBO Champion.

He may make it into The Hall of Fame, and Menayothin is nowhere near as great a fighter as Mayweather, or the 51-0-1 Ricardo Lopez, but the little warrior from Thailand now boasts the finest numbers in pro boxing. Can Menayothin retire without suffering a single defeat? Plenty of fans are now interested in seeing Menayothin in action. A hero in his homeland, “The Dwarf Giant” has retained his modesty, saying he hardly even thinks about his incredible pro record.

I've often thought his legacy is incomplete until he's fought someone who sounds like a laxative.

I can not take seriously a fighter that weighs less than the dumbells i use for Romanian Deadlifts.

Thai's, Filipino's and Indonesian's aren't exactly known for being massive guys, bar getting on kebab diet and moving up a few weight classes he's doing all he can do. Still an incredible achievement.

 He's like 5-0 against people with Wikipedia pages though. Plus he's 0-0 outside Thailand. Apologies for not being more impressed but I don't think this puts him among the elite of the elite.
