Floyd Mayweather is always taking on the toughest challenges in the sport, and receive zero credit for his accomplishments. When it comes to the best fighter in the game of boxing there is always a but after every victory. When he faced off against Robert the Ghost Guerrero, a fighter who beat the number 1 contender to for the WBC title and defeated the number 2 fighter in Andre Berto, earning his right for a shot at Mayweather. The media claimed Mayweather doesn't fight welterweights that earn their position, well that was one right there and once it was over you gave the champion zero credit.
After the fight was over, they blasted the fact that Guerrero was even in the ring with Mayweather and claiming that Mayweather should take a risk and a challenge and…Continue

Ronnie Rios improved his record to 23-0, after a great showing against a game Andrew Cancio. Cancio came out swinging hard to the body and head, makeing Rios fall into a trap of fighting with him, but as the rounds went on Rios used his skill of slick upper body movement, to avoid shots and smother the attack of Cancio. "I wanted to stay in there and trade, to show them I wont be pushed around.but my corner said hey be smart use your skills," said Rios "so I stayed close to him because he was just throwing looping shots most was hitting me behind the head, but that's my fault, so it was better for me to stay on the inside with him and work from there. Now we move on and I'm here it's a guy from Colombia. Whoever it is I'm ready."
Other bouts on the night, Mike Garvronski won a very competitive decision against the hard hitting Kevin Hand. welterweight prospect from Al Haymon's stable Alex Martin use power to stop Anthony Linenfelser…Continue

Before the Manny Pacquiao vs Timothy Bradley 2 fight, I focused on the Ray Beltran vs Arash Usmanee WBO title eliminator and Jessie Vargas vs Khabib Allakhverdiev for the WBA and IBO junior light welterweight…Continue
Ishe Smith was trading words with Erislandy Lara the last few months and finally it materialized. A fight between both Jr Middleweights that was set for May 2nd. Then just recently after Canelo Alvarez beat Alfredo Angulo, Goldenboy went to work to pit Lara vs Canelo together. This weekend they were able to get the deal done and now Ishe Smith is out of the picture.
Now Ishe is looking for a suitable opponent for May 2nd because he still wants to keep that date. Gabriel Rosado responded to the challenge. However Gab posted on his twitter account that Ishe Smith has turned him down. Gab is as tough as they come so I can see why Ishe turned it down. We hope Ishe finds someone we actually want to see him…Continue
Karceno: With all that has went down this past week, I know you are happy about the turnout of the event.
Arum; "Absolutely, it was a great night, you saw a competitive fight, Bradley did as he said he went in there and tried to knock Manny out, and it was back and forth, until Manny took over the fight using his skill. The undercard was equally amazing, just to show, you don't need big names, just great matchups. Unlike what they are feeding the public May 3th."
Karceno: Okay, tell the public what they are getting on May 3th, which we all know is Mayweather vs Maidana.
Arum: "They are giving you a showcase fight, and is charging you 60, 70 dollars a pop, to watch b*******. one fight is 15-1, and another fight on that card is…Continue
Bob Arum is up to his nonsense again. This time calling for a boycott on May 3 in order to force Floyd to fight Manny. Hey Bob, we know a decent fight card when we see one. So there will be no boycott on May 3. Bob claims he wants this fight for the fans. If that's the case, step aside and let Manny do the fight without Top Rank having anything to do with it. This fight doesn't need heavy promotion. So I'm sure Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy Promotions and MP Promotions is enough to get the job done. Floyd has made it clear that with Arum in the picture the fight is not happening. So if you really want this fight for the fans step aside Bob! If it doesn't happen at that point then he can blame Floyd. Manny's Top Rank contract is supposed to be up at the end of this year. Now instead of Manny staying a…Continue
