Physically, Canelo and Ortiz are very similar. Both boxers stand at 5'9 and Canelo has a one-inch reach advantage - 71 to 70. Canelo would have the edge in power, with Ortiz being the quicker of the two. In terms of their styles matching up, a knockout ending is certainly a bet worth taking.
"That would be a barnburner. If Canelo would fight Victor Ortiz - it can only be an exciting fight. That would be one of those fights that going into, where you can probably leave the judges…

Arum told the Los Angeles Times after speaking to ticket brokers about whether a rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley is a good idea: “No one wants to come.”
It’s interesting because Pacquiao does want the rematch, but the brokers are probably right that a rematch between Pacquiao and Bradley might not sell a lot of tickets. A big reason for this is the taint from the fight with a lot of boxing fans feeling that Pacquiao should have won. Having boxing fans pay to see a second…

Did anyone else think it was fishy that Timothy Bradley kept holding up a November rematch sign. Everyone kept laughing at it but Bradley was dead serious. Did he know something that we didn't know? Once the scorecards started off by "naming" the judges that let you know that something was not right. Most observers at ringside had it 9-3 for Manny Pacquiao. The whole MGMGrand was just stunned and stood in awe at what just happened.
“I would love to fight Bradley at 147, if he somehow manages to come through," said Khan. "I don’t think he’s going to beat Manny, but it’s a fight that we put to him [Bradley] before when he was at light-welterweight and he turned it down twice. I wouldn’t face Manny because we are friends…Continue

“Drug testing was never brought up during our negotiations,” said Bradley (28-0-0, 12ko), revealing the only testing both fighters have been subject to will be by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The 28-year-old, though, would have wanted more: “Is it something I would like? Sure, I wouldn’t mind.
“If you are clean, you shouldn’t have a problem taking the test. I’m not worried. Pacquiao is Pacquiao. I don’t know if Pacquiao ever used steroids or not, you know, bring it on.…

In the past, trainer Freddie Roach has suggested Manny Pacquiao might be the only fighter capable of beating Floyd Mayweather.
But Pacquiao might not get that chance if he struggles against Timothy Bradley on Saturday night, at least not if Roach has any say.
"If he looks bad, he retires," Roach told Associated Press columnist Tim Dahlberg. "At least I'll tell him to. And he may be the first one who will listen to me."
Roach's concern stems from Pacquiao's…
