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
WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs) defeated Hidenori Otake (22-2-3, 9 KOs) over twelve round for a unanimous decision.
James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Marco Antonio Periban (20-3-1, 13 KOs). Afterwards DeGale called Carl Froch a Coward.
George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) defeated Denis “Momma’s Boy” Douglin (17-4, 10 KOs) scoring a seventh round TKO.
Anthony Joshua (10-0, 10 KOs) beat up old man Michael Sprott (42-23, 17 KOs) with a barrage of punches in round one.
Bryant Jennings has been wanting a crack at the Heavyweight Championship and it might be Spring of 2015 against Wladimir Klitschko. We are pretty sure Deontay Wilder will not fight him because of their previous sparring sessions. This is the fight the fans would like to see because rarely have a seen an athletic American Heavyweight face Klitschko. Sure Shannon Briggs is trying to take that away and maybe we might see Briggs vs Jennings as an eliminator. Time will tell.
Everybody talk about the best fighters in the world and taking on the toughest bouts, well no one has done that more than Devon Alexander, who uses boxing skills to make up for disadvantages he may face in the ring, from being the smaller guy. Alexander will be facing Amir Khan on Dec. 13th and the winner should be inline to challenge Floyd Mayweather the king of boxing for the crown.
Alexander told the AP, that "Khan can only fight one way, but I can adapt to any style." Devon has won titles in every weight class he fought and is my favorite to upset the brash Amir Khan from the UK, who wants to take a backdoor road to Mayweather. With Khan's weak chin I think Devon would be best to box him early and try for that chin later in the fight when Khan tries to…Continue
By Scott Gilfoid: The highly anticipated fight between WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs) and the talented #1 WBC Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KOs) look like it finally has a date in venue.
According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael, the Stiverne-Wilder bout will take place on January 17th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two fighters have gone back and forth for months in attempting to put the fight together.
There were three cancelled purse bids, and it looked at one point that the fight would never take place despite the huge interest from boxing fans in the United States. However, Stiverne has to fight the 6’7” Deontay in the 1st quarter of 2015, because he’s his mandatory challenger and the title defense will be overdue if he fails to take the challenge.
The Stiverne vs. Wilder fight will…Continue
By Dan Ambrose: WBA light welterweight champion Jessie Vargas (25-0, 9 KOs) will be looking to impress this Saturday night on the HBO pay-per-view card against Antonio DeMarco (31-3-1, 23 KOs) at the Cotai Arena, Venetian Resort, Macao, in Macao S.A.R., China.
Vargas’ new trainer Roy Jones Jr will be working his corner for the fight. Jones Jr has supposedly taught Vargas how to throw a left hook with power, and to sit down on his other punches as well.
Vargas, never much of a puncher, feels that the things that Jones Jr has taught him has helped him in his power department, and he wants to show boxing fans his new power. Whether Vargas is actually punching with more power or not remains to be seen.
For his sake, you’ve got to hope that he’s found some additional power because his lack of power hurt him in his…Continue
