On Saturday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio,Texas,WBA welterweight champion Adrien Broner defends his belt against the hard-punching Marcos Maidana. This will be the last major boxing card of the year, as Golden Boy looks to present Broner as boxing's Baby New Year.Broner has been presented by his promoters as the future of the sport for the past couple of years, so this really is good placement by Showtime and Golden Boy.
Adrian Broner is a genius who has more than enough skill to deal with Marcos Maidana, although his opponent is a true fighter who will go all out for the win. It could be entertaining but Broner will emerge victorious once more, sighs Alex Steedman as he anticipates The Problem's victory braggadocio.…Continue

Danny Garcia proved the world wrong when he beat the power slugger from Argentina, Lucas Matthysse but it seems like the fame may be getting to Danny. he recently signed a deal with the Nike based company Jordan brand, before his fight with Lucas and now it seems he may have been released due to his violations of code of conduct, in which Garcia denies he has done. Boxing fans and friends of Garcia said he hasn't been training in the gym, but instead more focused on business deals, like music promotions, and real estate.
Since the fight Sept.14th they have said Garcia has been in the gym only twice, for light pad work that's it, "He don't come to Philly like that anymore, he's gone Hollywood on us, he's out there in Delaware,…Continue
Boxing matches should never be determined by numbers but the boxing game has changed due to social media, and everyday i have to answer the questions like, 'He shouldn't get a shot because he only getting paid this much.' The fans are all involved in what a fighter makes, to determine who he should fight, nothing based on merit.
HBO boxing and Showtime Boxing went head to head with their scheduling conflict but it wasn't because the companies are at odds, most of there shows will collide at some point, that's just a fact, but the fans are so caught up into who had the bigger numbers, and who's winning and losing. Nevertheless here are the numbers from Saturday nights boxing shows.

As we all know the sport of boxing is a business, respectable at times but more often so corrupt. Floyd Mayweather Jr., without question one of the best business minds the sport has ever seen realizes this and very understandable wants to secure his future. The past 2 weeks have been filled with people claiming a fight against Amir Khan has been secured and will happen in May,folks this is an outrage and a robbery of epic proportions. I know there are pundits that believe Khan has a shot and hey, I'm not trying to sway you. The question is.."Why is this happening"? There is no reason Khan should receive a shot at Floyd when he has never even fought at 147; didn't look like a world beater at 140 and also Danny Garcia is more worthy. Speaking of Garcia, It wasn't too long ago Garcia knocked Khan out! That also being said what was the purpose of having Garcia on your undercard getting the biggest exposure (2.2 million people plus) if you not going to give him a shot next? This makes…Continue
Live from the MIA, Miami. Guillermo Rigondeaux is the best fighter at 122lbs, and wants the respect that the other champions before him have gotten.
Karceno: Now I'm one of you're biggest critics in the past but this last fight, I saw a different Rigondeaux, one that uses more of a pro style, than amateur, was that your goal?
Rigondeaux: "I fight the same way I always have but yes, I do better in each fight that I have. and the critics can say what they want but I don't understand why they have a problem with Cuban fighters, as you see we keep winning. What's wrong with winning. They want me to fight like a Mexican and stand there and get hit, why do that if I don't have to."
