This year most are wondering whether or not Pacquiao and Mayweather will finally step into the ring to face each other. Those paying attetion to what goes on more than the media are able to see whats going on. But there are other fighters who get over looked. Elie Seckbach told Andre Ward in a recent interview that Floyd Mayweather said fighters like Andre Ward are underappreciated; it's true. Floyd vs Pacquiao shouldn't be the only focus.
There's Erik Morales who made his…Continue

i agree with lou dibella...sancitoning bodies are gettin too out of control with how they've been handling things with titles lately...i mean last year bradley got stripped of his title for not defending it...and they're giving erik morales a deadline to defend his...but they aren't doing anything to Chavez jr....it's some kraziness

There's a difference between being fast and quick in Boxing. Many people think if a fighter is fast then he is also quick but this isn't always the case. Being quick is having the abilty to react to the opponent. For example you need to be relatively quick to have good defense or to be an efficient counter puncher. Many fighters are fast when they deceide to intiate a punch or manuever. The young Roy Jones Jr. was fast and quick but as he got older he reaction time (quickness) slowed.…Continue

In boxing just about everything is up for debate. We debate on things we can't actually prove nor ever put to the test. Opinions make up the sport of boxing just like clay does a sculpture. The sooner we accept this imperfection, the quicker it brings much better satisfaction in accepting the sport for what it is. My point is that perception makes up the sport. Everything in the sweet science, including why people watch it, is based off opinion and interpretation.

as you all probably already heard martinez dumped his WBC belt and HBO...why? because instead of the WBC making Chavez jr fight him...they're allowing him to fight a lesser opponent.
This is whats killing boxing...17-18 divisions with 4 belts in each where you dont even have to fight a champion to get a title...you can do like margarito cotto and pacquiao fighting bums for vacant belts or in catchweights and be hailed as champions.
If more fighters follow…Continue
Recently I posted what is my current top 10 pound for pound list. Here is a re-cap.
1. Floyd Mayweather. With his recent 3 month jail term coming up his stock is likely to drop as it looks like he won't be fighting May 5th. For now Mayweather who is far and away the best boxer in the sport holds this spot. Before you go complaining that he only fights tune up fights anyone other than Sergio Martinez who is two weight classes above him, and the overrated Manny Pacquiao…Continue
Everyone makes mistakes, its part of the growth process in life. As we get older, through our experiences we learn what and what not to do in certain situations.

I just want to say Happy New Year to all Boxing Socialist Members. Make 2012 your year. Do not let life pass you by. Grab a hold of it and make the best of it.
As far as boxing goes. I hope 2012 is the year the fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather is made. I want Mayweather to send Pacquiao into retirement with the worst beating of his professional career.
