Carson, California - Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (31-0, 28 KO) yet again wins by TKO as he destroyed Marco Antonio Rubio (59-7-1, 51 KO) in front of a sold out crowd.
The StubHub Center was rocking as the rise of a new feather weight start, Nicholas Walters, won in impressive fashion by TKO win over Nonito Donaire in the sixth.
Nonito Donaire entered the ring, and a patient Nicholas Walters awaited him. The action and drama started at the end of the second round as Donaire landed a hard left hook that stunned Walters. Donaire came out aggressive in the third but Walters recovered well and scored a knock down with a right uppercut that dropped Donaire. Donaire beat the count but it seemed liked he never recovered from that right uppercut. Donaire went on survival mode till the sixth when Walters landed a devastating right hand during an exchange that dropped Donaire face first. Donaire got up but was in bad shape. The referee, Raul…Continue
Who do really feel could challenge Floyd Mayweather at this point in his career at his weight class, and before you say Manny Pacquaio or something crazy like Keith Thurman, listen to this. I said challenge, meaning give Mayweather a run for his money. Now I know must of you will still say those same names, when it has been proven in all five of Manny Pacquiao losses he has lost to boxers, not brawlers. Now here is the best boxer of our generation and now he is suppose to contend with Mayweather because he is fast. Thurman, who hits very hard, still is too green to face Mayweather at this time, and facing Soto-Karass and a washed up Diaz doesn't do it for me, "We don't believe you you need more people." These so called boogie men, the sports media make up, they don't…Continue

Manny Pacquiao fans and supports listen to me, Adrien Broner is a three-time three division world champion. You can't say that about many fighters in the game today. Broner's speed, power and ring IQ are the reasons many are choosing him to be the successor to Floyd Mayweather. If Pacquiao wants to continue to chase a Mayweather fight, he should face a fighter that has a likeness in style to Mayweather. No disrespect to Chris Algeri, but he is fresh to the game, and why is he fighting a guy like that instead of top tier competition? I would never know but Broner by far would sell more than that fight and it's the fight that makes the most sense to me.
Now fans are going to complain that wait a min, Broner has been knocked out, which is a…Continue

Hasim Rahman Jr. maintains his fight with Cameron went 31 minutes straight with no break and he was later informed there large amounts of money wagered.
The lawsuit further states that Mayweather “misrepresented facts” while testifying on front of the NSAC and falsely testified that the 31-minute fight depicted on “Showtime All Access” didn’t happen.
NICHOLAS WALTERS on NONITO DONAIRE
"Donaire is a very good champion. We both have speed and power. The difference is intelligence. I was born to fight. The bigger the fight the better.
"If Donaire isn't right, he's going to get knocked out. Maybe five rounds, maybe less. Not sure yet.
"But you know what? Donaire stepped up and took this fight. He didn't have to. For that, I respect him for getting in the ring with me."
