Manny was supposed to kill him as well. At least hes looking for legit fights

Manny hasn't been the same since Marquez KOed him. He quit steroids, and now relies on speed, but he's lost all of his power. I think only casuals think Manny's still an elite boxer.

Ward vs. Stevenson Showdown Opportunity Missed As Stevenson Looks Set To Fight Eleider Alvarez

stevenson-ward-nadkarni-spag.jpg

 

If Mayweather vs. McGregor and the upcoming GGG vs. Canelo fights have taught us anything its that people want to see the biggest matches they can. Which is why its frustrating that the biggest fight that could be made at Light-Heavyweight has eluded us.

 

After Andre Ward settled his rivalry with Sergey Kovalev in their second fight in mid June Adonis Stevenson called out the winner. The opportunity was there to set up a fight between the two best Light-Heavyweights in the world for a unification fight. It has been 18 years since Roy Jones Jr. last unified the Light-Heavyweight division.

 

However if it is to happen it looks like Ward and Stevenson will meet further down the road as Stevenson is in serious negotiations to defend his WBC belt against Eleider Alvarez.

Ducking Tony Ferguson to fight Floyd is one thing, but Stevenson ducking Ward to drop 4 weight classes and cross sports and fight Eddie Alvarez is too tew much

Billy Joe Saunders Eyeing Fight With Winner Of Canelo/GGG

hi-res-174125358_crop_north.jpg?13797942

Billy Joe Saunders hopes to end a "stressful" spell of inactivity when he defends his WBO middleweight title against Willie Monroe Jr on Saturday.

 

Saunders, 28, has not defended his world title since December and arrived for his camp "fat and unfit", according to his new trainer Dominic Ingle.

 

He hopes a win sets up a fight with Gennady Golovkin or Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, who also fight on Saturday.

 

"The inactivity has been stressful, but you deal with it," said Saunders.

 

Monroe Jr - who has lost two of his 23 pro bouts - has laughed at Saunders' desire to face either IBF, WBA and WBC champion Golovkin or Alvarez. The pair meet in Las Vegas hours after Saunders defends his own title against the American at London's Copper Box Arena.

 

"Canelo said he didn't even know who he was," said Monroe Jr, 30. "I know he showed up to a couple of their press conferences and Canelo and Golovkin pretty much said the same thing: he talks too much."

 

In order to put the frustrations of inactivity behind him, Saunders - who has 24 wins from 24 fights - has also said he would contemplate widening his options by moving up to super-middleweight, a division that includes the likes of Britons James DeGale and George Groves.

 

But if he beats Monroe Jr - who was stopped by Golovkin in 2015 - a super-fight with Golovkin or Alvarez seems a more logical option, with the possibility of all four belts in the division going to one man.

 

"It's the only way the winner of the Golovkin-Canelo fight can unify the titles, and that's the logical fight," said Saunders' promoter Frank Warren. "We will make it happen. I'm absolutely confident, we will deliver it.

 

"If it's Canelo it'll be in the States, and if it's Golovkin we may have a chance of staging it in the UK. If Golovkin wins, it looks like they'll want to fight some time in December."


"All will be well."

 seen Manny's betting line (Philippines casino)  vs Khan (-230Pac/ +175Khan), don't think it's happening doe,

talks w/ Arum & the Pakastani- Brit broke down due to Ramadan I'm reading now ....

... they were both sparring partners & trained under Roach in the past -

* I'm seeing now Pac vs Khan slated for Dec 31 on BFO, same odds as above^

 

Really don't wanna see anymore Pacquiao, but you always get a good shake on his opponents here .

 

* Saunders -310/ Monroe +265

I genuinely like watching Amir Khan fights.  They're never dull and if his opponent has decent power there's always a chance he stands and trades and ends up staring at the ceiling or face planted

Apart from going bat-**** crazy on social media lately Khan is always exciting to watch.

 

Like you said even if you just like to see him lose he has some of the best ko loses you will see lol Prescott, Garcia and Canelo knockouts are crazy.

 

His fight with Maidana he showed he has real heart, just not the best of chins.

 

He's beat a lot of top guys as well Barrera, Maidana, Judah, Molina and Malignaggi.

 

Personally think in a fight with an ageing Pacman Khan would probably finish him.

Was beating Canelo until the KO as well. I still think he's tailor made for Pac tho. Pac put a way worse beating on Algieri where Algieri was fairly competitive with Khan.

I actually don't mind him and think he got some unfair stick early in his career.  Some saw his confidence as arrogance but if you don't sell yourself in boxing you end up fighting jobbers in front of small crowds.  I think he has a good chance against pacman now as well

Nicola Adams Making Her American Debut

 

nicola-adams-boxing_3282229.jpg?20150326

 

Nicola Adams says she is aiming for a professional world title early in 2018 after her "dream" fight in Las Vegas on Saturday.

 

The British double Olympic champion, who turned professional in January, is taking on Hungary's Alexandra Vlajk as she fights in the United States for the first time.

 

She is looking forward to fighting on the GGG vs. Canelo card.

 

“Frank [Warren, her promoter,] said there was the opportunity to box on the undercard of Canelo-GGG and I was like, ‘Hell yeah! Definitely.’”

 

Take a look at some of her achievements so far

  • Olympic Gold Medallist x2 (2012, 2016)
  • World Championships Gold Medallist x1 (2016)
  • World Championships Silver Medallist x3 ( 2008, 2010, 2012)
  • European Championships Gold Medallist (2011)
  • EU Championships Gold Medalist (2011, 2013)
  • Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist (2014)
  • The first ever female boxer to defend an Olympic title in two consecutive games.

Getting sat down 3 times in the first 2 rounds and losing the 4th round is definitely not Diaz clearly winning.

 

This fight on the other hand Canelo won 1,3 and 10 while GGG took 2,4,5,6,7,8,9,11,12.  Maybe you could give Canelo the 12th but even the 115-113 score for GGG was crap.  Canelo did not win 5 rounds.

Meet The Guy Who Is Close To Equalling Floyd Mayweather's Record

Moonsri.jpg

 

Chayaphol Moonsri is from Thailand and has a record of 48-0 (17KOS). He needs just two more wins to equal Mayweather's record and at only 31 years old looks to have plenty of time to equal or eclipse the 50-0 record Mayweather has.

 

While it took Mayweather just under 21 years to amass his 50-0 record it has taken Moonsri only 10 years to reach 48-0

 

Moonsri's next fight has been ordered by the WBC. Next up for Chayaphon Moonsri is southpaw WBC Latino Champion Leroy “El Sensasional” Estrada (16-2, 6 KO’s) of La Chorrera, Panama.

 

The fight between Moonsri and Estrada will likely be staged in Thailand. If Moonsri wins it will be his fifth win of 2017, three of which have been title defences.

 

If Chayaphon Moonsri hits the 50-0 record or went on to improve the record and retired undefeated he still wont get massive recognition with boxing fans one suspects, sadly.

 

Many fans might never hear of his name but if Chayaphon does achieve the accomplishment he will go into the history books, make no mistake about it.

Tyson Fury's Cousin Hughie Fury Is Fighting For The Heavyweight Title This Weekend

hughie-fury-fred-kassi-copper-box_345854

Tyson Fury’s cousin left school at 11 and, with his father in and out of prison, dedicated his life to boxing – this Saturday he could become a world heavyweight champion.

 

Fury is currently 20-0 (10KO) an impressive record but there's no doubt that this would be the fight to finally remove him from his cousins shadow and see him recognized as the WBO Heavyweight Champion.

 

To do any of this Fury has to get through 25 year old Joseph Parker 23-0 (18KO). The undefeated New Zealander is the slight betting favourite.

 

Although neither man is a massive draw both men know the potential mega money fight that this could bring for the winner. Whoever wins will likely be in line for a Heavyweight unification fight against either Anthony Joshua.

David Haye and Tony Bellew set for heavyweight rematch

220569.jpg

David Haye says he has agreed terms for a heavyweight rematch with Tony Bellew.

 

After a fiery pre-fight build-up, WBC cruiserweight world champion Bellew stopped his rival in the 11th round in their first meeting in March.

 

Haye injured an Achilles in the sixth round before falling to his third career defeat.

 

Haye tweeted: "It's taken months of negotiating but teams have finally agreed all terms for Haye-Bellew 2. Will Bellew put pen to paper?"

 

No date or location has been confirmed by either promoter, but there are reports it will be held on Sunday, 17 December at London's O2 Arena.

 

Former WBA heavyweight champion Haye needed surgery following the defeat by Liverpool's Bellew, and has since split with trainer Shane McGuigan.

 

Tony Bellew has now responded in a tweet saying: Don't really feel like talking tbh! I OBLIGE YOU @mrdavidhaye , happy? Now leave me alone with my family please. I'll see you soon enough!

RIP 'The Raging Bull' Jake LaMotta

maxresdefault.jpg

A sad day for the boxing world as it loses one of the greatest slugger's to ever enter the ring.

 

LaMotta’s wife told website TMZ, her husband had died in a nursing home due to ‘complications from pneumonia’.

 

LaMotta was famously played by Robert De Niro in the movie adaptation of his autobiography Raging Bull.

 

Without a doubt LaMotta is most famous however for defeating Marcel Cerdan to become the Middleweight champion of the world but even more so he handed Sugar Ray Robinson (widely regarded as the best boxer of all time) his first professional loss and went on to fight him another five times.

Arum Eyes Crawford-Horn, Pacquiao Rejects Rematch in Australia

 

Back in July, eight division champion Manny Pacquiao suffered an upset decision loss to Jeff Horn before a crowd of over 50,000 at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia. There is a rematch clause, which Pacquiao is willing to exercise.

 

So what is the status of the rematch between Manny Pacquiao and the man that upset him on July 1st in Brisbane, Australia, Jeff Horn?

 

Well, for the time being it's gone dormant, according to promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank.

The veteran promoter told BoxingScene.com on Wednesday afternoon - "Pacquiao up to this point made it plain he's not coming over to fight in Australia."

 

When asked if Pacquiao-Horn 2 would be a possibility for say, Las Vegas, Arum explained - "No, he doesn't want to fight in Vegas, either. He wants to fight in the Philippines and with the peso being 52 peso's to the dollar - how the hell is everybody going to get paid, let alone him?"

 

Pacquiao lost his WBO welterweight title to Horn in a very controversial. Arum had cleared off November 11th as a date for the rematch.

 

"I'm not at a standstill (with Pacquiao) but he's made his position clear, the world goes on," said the veteran promoter, who says the finances just don't work for a big homecoming event for 'the Pac Man'.

 

"I would love to do a big fight for him in Manila or some place else in the Philippines but the problem is don't expect me to pay for it."

 

According to Arum the government has made it clear that they have other priorities besides hosting a major fight on their agenda.

 

"The tourism board in the Philippines has told us they'll do everything to help promote the fight except put up money. You've got to respect that," said Arum.

 

So what now for Horn? Well, he could be lined up with another well-known Top Rank client, Terrence Crawford.

 

"We're going to meet with Terrence and we're going to lay out a plan starting early next year leading towards a welterweight championship match, probably with Jeff Horn," stated Arum.


"All will be well."

I don't even know why he thinks Crawford would fight him.

 

I know a few people seem to know who Horn is now because he beat Pacman but If Crawford is coming up for a title fight you've got to think that Spence or Thurman would be the target.

Andre Ward stuns boxing world by announcing retirement

Andre Ward has stunned the boxing world by announcing his immediate retirement.

 

The 33-year-old American cemented his status as the No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world after his rematch victory over Sergey Kovalev in June, stretching his unbeaten record to 32 victories, but has suggested that his body can no longer withstand the physical demands of the sport.

 

A statement on Ward's official website read: "As I walk away from the sport of boxing today, I leave at the top of your glorious mountain, which was always my vision and my dream. I did it. We did it.

 

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who has played a part in my journey. You know who you are. I could not have done this without you. I want to be clear - I am leaving because my body can no longer put up with the rigors of the sport and therefore my desire to fight is no longer there.

 

"If I cannot give my family, my team, and the fans everything that I have, then I should no longer be fighting. Above all, I give God the Glory, for allowing me to do what I've done, for as long as I have."

Weekend Round-Up

 

A bad weekend for British boxers two of them were on the wrong side of decisions making them unsuccessful in their world title bids.

 

 

 

Joseph Parker vs. Tyson Fury

 

Hughie Fury fought behind his jab the whole fight and made Parker miss often but he didn't capitalize enough in the landing of his own attacks to get his hand raised.

 

Pakrer had the best moment of the fight in the 9th round when it looked like an uppercut stunned Fury.

 

The scorecards were divided, one had it a 114-114 draw, the other two giving it to the champion by 118-110. Most felt the right man won but that this was another case of judges being off the mark in terms of how far apart they were.

 

Next Fight

 

Fury: Dillan Whyte. Whyte is famous for outside of Klitschko giving Joshua his hardest fight and wants another shot at the champ but knows he needs a step up in competition to do that. If Fury is to bounce back he needs to bounce back quickly. Both guys will need a big fight and would make a big British fight.

 

Parker: The winner of Haye vs. Bellew II. Parker has said he wants to face Joshua and Wilder but not many will be sold on Parker as a legitimate threat to Joshua after that fight with Fury. He needs another big British name to help him grow his star before the big fight.

 

 

Luke Campbell vs. Jorge Linares

 

Luke Campbell fell just short of his dream of becoming world champion on Saturday. He lost a split decision the first having Campbell winning 115-113, but the other two judges gave it to the Venezuelan with scores of 115-112 and 114-113.

 

A bitter pill for Campbell to swallow as he and many others thought he did enough to get the win.

 

The knockdown Linares landed on Campbell in the second round proved to be the deciding factor.

 

If he can learn from this Campbell will grow immensely, he was the underdog in this from day one and Linares a 15 year professional and 46 fight veteran was always fancied as the favourite.

 

Next Fight

 

Campbell: His promoter has said either the winner of Burns vs. Crolla or potentially a shot at WBO champion Terry Flanagan. Burns and Crolla are at different points in their careers than Luke and Luke has little to gain from that fight other than a big name, where as a fight with Flanagan has another chance at a title.

 

Linares: He has said he wants a showdown with undefeated WBC Champion Mikey Garcia. Garcia is without a doubt the biggest money fight in the division and would mean a lucrative pay-out for Linares.
