Gennady Govlokin, is he the truth or another HBO blown up star, if we listen to Abel Sanchez his beloved trainer, he can beat any fighter that ever lived and even knockout Ebola. Looking deep into the matter we find out that Golovkin is indeed powerful but has plenty of faults in the ring that a skilled fighter may expose. Golovkin has been called out by two skilled boxers, Erislandy Lara has challenged the dangerous opponent, who turned down such a fight, but why if he is the fighter they say he is, Lara has more of a following than anyone Govlokin has faced but still no match. Why is that.
Andre Ward for the past ten years has been the number two pound for pound fighter in the world, next to Floyd Mayweather, the undefeated Ward is the best option at Super…Continue

Last Saturday, at the Prize Fight Promotions “Fights at the Fitz” event in Tunica, Mississippi, fans were treated to a special guest appearance by former undisputed heavyweight champion James “Buster” Douglas, the man known for knocking out then-undefeated Mike Tyson in 1990, despite entering the ring as a 42-1 underdog.
Though Tyson has made a slew of well-publicized comebacks in the years since that first defeat, his one-time opponent, Douglas, is more quietly blazing his own comeback trail in the form of passing along his wisdom to the next generation—and, like many, hoping to find the next big American heavyweight to bring the belts back home.…Continue

The two will meet for eight rounds of action on the stacked undercard of the Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins vs. Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev event at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ
Luis Arias terminated from Mayweather Promotions
October 29, 2014
Boxing prospect Luis Arias has been released from Mayweather Promotions. Luis heard he was released by getting a phone call last Saturday by J'Leon Love. Arias never signed any contract to be with Mayweather Promotions. Instead both Luis and Floyd Mayweather Jr. reached a verbal agreement. Arias believed the reason why he was released was due to the Rahman brothers friendship he has. The brothers are suing Floyd Mayweather for battery, false imprisonment, negligent hiring, supervision and retention and unjust enrichment.
