I guess Alex Ariza is tired of hearing the same old crap from Bob Arum. We all know there is no love lost between Alex and Bob. For awhile Alex Ariza was working alot of with Manny Pacquiao. Freddie Roach and Bob Arum put an end to that. Something must have struck a nerve with Alex because he posted on Twitter, "Isn't it funny Bob Arum talks how much Floyd makes & what his taxes are, but yet his own fighter owes millions to the IRS, seriously?"
With Floyd Mayweather shaking up and firing people in his camp, you never know. Alex Ariza might get that strength and conditioning coach position. Let's…Continue
A source who has been generally reliable on such numbers confirmed that Mayweather's rematch with Marcos Maidana on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden sold 925,000 on pay-per-view. That is 25,000 better than their May fight, which sold roughly 900,000.
Hidalgo, Texas (Sept. 18) - The recently announced junior featherweight bout between Southern California favorite Joseph "Jo Jo" Diaz and Mexican warrior Raul "Bule" Hidalgo has been elevated from the co-main event to the main event for the Monday, Sept. 29 Golden Boy Live! fight night from the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas due to an injury suffered by former light heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver.
Tarver, who was scheduled to face Johnathon Banks in a 10-round heavyweight bout on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes, injured his thumb during training camp. "The injury actually happened two and a half weeks ago and I've been trying my hardest to work through it. Finally my doctor ordered an X-ray and we found out it was a fracture,"…Continue
Oscar De La Hoya is taking full rein of his company. After the Mayweather vs Maidana II fight, Richard Schaefer was there with another former employee of Goldenboy named Raul Jaimes. Bruce Binkow was Richards right hand man at Goldenboy but he was let go as well and he now is a "consultant" with Mayweather Promotions. Richard on the other hand cannot go "work" or "consult" with Mayweather Promotions because of the written contract with his separation from Goldenboy. However, Richard is trying to figure out how to get out of that.
Some sources say that Richard can get out if he pays anywhere between $10-$20 Million. That will help cover the cost of the lawsuit they lost when Richard guided Canelo Alvarez away from his original Promoter. That promoter won that lawsuit that says they breached Canelo's contract to go work with Goldenboy…Continue

Oscar De La Hoya recently did an interview and it was asked about if Canelo Alvarez still wants the Cinco De Mayo date that Floyd Mayweather has been taking for the last few years. Oscar said that Canelo calls the shots and he is adamant about taken that date. He is the Mexican that will bring pride to Cinco De Mayo. He is willing to go head to head with Floyd and this time he will be headlining on HBO. Floyd on the other hand will be on Showtime. Interesting to see who will come out on top.
