Victor Ortiz has been in there with some of the best. He's face Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, had a draw with Lamont Peterson. You just never know what your going to get from Victor but excitement. However, something was took from him when he faced Josesito Lopez in what was suppose to be an easy fight. In the fight he had his jaw broken. He was in pain and he could not continue. He took time to shoot movies and commercials and then got back in the ring.
The problem? He was supposed to face another softy in Luis Collazo. What happened next was unexpected. He got Knocked out in the second round. Now we stand her wondering if he has anything left. How much mental damage is done to a fighter who was at top at one time. Now to build his confidence up, they are putting him in there with Manuel Perez who has a record of 22-10, with 4 KO's and…Continue
At one time is was Floyd Mayweather, then Andre Ward, and then Manny Pacquiao in the ranks. Well, we know why Andre Ward has fallen to number 4 and it's because of his inactivity. However, since his drop in ratings and Manny scooping up wins with Brandon Rios, Timothy Bradley, and Chris Algieri you would think he would move into the number 2 position again. Not so fast.
Wladimir has done something most people have not paid attention too. He has remained undefeated in 10 years time. He has defended his titles for a long time. He is the current IBF, WBA, WBO, and Ring Magazine Champion. The only belt he does not have is the WBC. Bermane Stivern is holding on to that baby, until he faces Deontay Wilder. So rightfully so Wladimir deserves that number 2 ranking. It's not his fault…Continue
After being shot in the head by a stray bullet, Emanuel Augustus was giving a slight chance to survive, and if he did what would be the extent of his injuries. He has shown remarkable self-healing and as you see from this photo still has his swagger he took in the ring on fight nights. He became a legend fighting on ESPN after a great challenge he gave to Pound for Pound champion fighter Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather would say to this day it was his toughest fight of his career. ESPN took him in and he brought attention with his hands down defense and slick movement in the ring, which earned him the name the 'Puppet Master' they way he moved like he was on a string. Robbed in most of his fights because of his lack of promotion, and his fight of the year bout against…Continue
Manny Pacquiao beat Chris Algieri in what was considered a blow out. Manny had 20-1 odds so that should tell you something. With the win, first thing everyone asked was about Pacquiao vs Mayweather. However, Mayweather is already working on a Mayweather vs Cotto 2 deal. So right now Mayweather has two options. If he doesn't land the Pacquiao fight for "monetary" reasons, then it most likely will be Cotto.
However on the flip side, if Manny doesn't get Mayweather he would like to face what most considers to be the best at 140lbs and that is Danny Garcia. There might be hope. Since Haymon is working on a Toprank deal with Chavez Jr, then that might open the doors for HBO and Haymon to work again. If so, who do you think will win between Garcia vs…Continue
It was another night in the office for Manny Pacquiao, defeating Chris Algeri by decision. After a series of knockdowns in the fight some by Pacquiao and the rest by referee Genaro Rodriguez, who helped double team Algeri by calling slips knockdowns, then repeatedly warned Algeri for blows that wasn't low, it set the stage for Pacquiao to land a counter left and hurt Algeri. You have to tip you're hat to Algeri as he fought back and used what little skills he had to survive to lose on the cards, but next time maybe Pacquiao can fight a top ten fighter.

Let's go through the ring of fire once more, to see if we get the Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout after this fight. That's the only attraction a fight like this bring. I'm sorry but Chris Algeri, no matter how many times I say it doesn't get the blood running enough for me to spend $50 plus, Manny Pacquiao has already been put to sleep recently, so will we care about this fight once it's over.
The odds say no, because if Pacquiao wins, so what he beat a green unproven fighter, and if Alferi wins, then Pacquiao is just damaged goods. the usual run we go around but I think the fans are getting hip to the scam of seeing Pacquiao for money, when they can just watch him for free next week. Many fans don't even know he's fighting tonight.…Continue
