"Every athlete has to admit defeat. Great champions need to know to lose. I have to learn from this defeat. This is not the end of the world. I don't think that it’s the end of my career," Bute stated in a Romanian interview this week.
“I need to relax. It was a great mental load. I need time for my return. On Saturday night, Carl Froch was better.
"Any great athlete must have dignity, to be able to congratulate your opponent. I was the favourite and everyone thought…
Lead trainer Freddie Roach said there’s no way Manny Pacquiao is going to lose to Tim Bradley next week in Las Vegas.
“When people get knocked out, there shouldn’t be a rematch,” Roach told a handful of Manila-based scribes during Pacquiao’s open workout on Wednesday afternoon at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood.
Roach dismissed the stunt that Bradley and Top Rank pulled off on the day before when the fighter posed beside a fight poster announcing a Nov. 10…

By Dominic Sauboorah: I’ve seen some overrated fighters over the years, but no one like Andre Ward. I’ve seen a fair few of his fights and I wont lie he has shown to be very illusive in the ring whereby opponents do find it difficult to pin him down and land shots against him, which is one main reason as to why he is still undefeated.
Nevertheless you’ve got to take into consideration his style of fighting and whether it should be deemed as clever or boring.

As Bradley left to fly to England for his first world title fight in 2008, the couple's bank account was a paltry $11.
"We were dead, dead, dead broke," Bradley said, laughing. "I had to win. We had no choice because we'd given everything we had to this and we were just about out of money."
These days, Bradley has no such financial pressures. He'll make a guaranteed $5 million to fight Manny Pacquiao for the World Boxing Organization welterweight title on June 9 at…

Khan said to thesun.co.uk “The drug tests is in the contract. All my opponents from now on will have to take the tests are there is no fight. I signed up with the Voluntary Anti Doping Association…For every one of my bouts, there will there will be a clause in the contract to either agree or I will walk away.”
Khan can get away with this for the time being but once he takes another loss or two, he might look a little silly trying to come across like he’s dictating the terms. For…

Taking in the action, trainer Robert Garcia feels the scores were just.
“It was a great fight,” Garcia told me recently from his personal gym in Oxnard, California. “I know a lot of people think that Cotto won more rounds. I think the scores were right. They were close rounds. Maybe I’ll give two rounds to Cotto but it was tough for Mayweather. He won most of the rounds; it wasn’t easy. He had to really fight to win those rounds.”
On the Mayweather-Cotto undercard,…

Manny Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz has debunked reports that the “Fighter of the Decade” had the flu and indicated all he had was a bum stomach probably caused by something he ate.
Koncz told the Manila Standard there was no way Pacquiao could have been down with a fever since he sparred twelve rounds on Saturday with three different sparring partners and “looked great.”
Koncz said Pacquiao demonstrated his speed, footwork and power and was in fine physical…

It seems like Alex Ariza is on a roll again. Not one to hold his tongue either. It's no surprise that Bob Arum and Freddie Roach are not the happiest with Alex Ariza right now. They are still steaming that he left Manny Pacquiao in the middle of training camp and came back to the United States to start training Julio Cesar Chavez Jr for his upcoming bout with Andy Lee. Alex also has a financial tie and stake with Chavez Jr so he needs to protect his…

Freddie Roach surely is not the happiest with Alex Ariza right now and Alex could really care less. He is there to do a job for Manny Pacquiao, not for Freddie Roach or Bob Arum. Alex made sure he got Manny Pacquiao's permission to leave camp just 2 weeks early and he said they would meet back in LA and they did. After watching this 24/7 the people were shocked to hear Freddie say, "Alex has got the Big Head" but he might be right.
Why would Manny…
