ADRIEN BRONER CALLING OUT THE BEST AT ALL LIGHTWEIGHTS

By Kevin Davis

Every since his victory over previously undefeated challenger Eloy Perez by impressive standards. He has been walking on air. After his fourth round stoppage, He told Max Kellerman of HBO that "Anyone can get it, Africans, Americans, Dominicans, and Mexicans. Anybody can get it." It came off as prepared and cocky, but in boxing that's what sells. Now he is calling out all lightweights to step up to the plate. "I want the best fighters at 130…

MAYWEATHER TALKS ABOUT WHICH FIGHTERS HE WOULD PASS THE TORCH

By Kevin Davis

Floyd Mayweather said a lot of interesting things last night but what caught my attention the most is when he was reflecting on his departure from the game. Which may come in a couple of fights, but he gave names as to whom he would past the torch. In the past,  Andre Ward and Devon Alexander we're the two fighters that stated Mayweather said he would past them the torch.

Not to say he wouldn't someday, but…

COTTO: "I NEVER PUSHED TO GET A FIGHT WITH MAYWEATHER IN THE PAST"

By Kevin Davis



We all heard the stories on how Miguel Cotto was chasing Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather was ducking him, according to the unenlightened fans and media. During his interview with ESPN Miguel Cotto was asked about how he felt getting the Mayweather fight after trying to pursue it earlier in his career. Miguel Cotto answered and corrected the journalist who thought he knew more than he truly did.



"I never spoke to Arum about or pushed for a fight with…

MAYWEATHER: "IT'S NOT ABOUT RACE, WE ARE ALL GOD"S CHILDREN"



By Kevin Davis

Floyd Mayweather made it very clear to Dana White and all the media who where in attendance, that it's not about Puerto Rico vs America, or a Puerto Rican vs an African-American. It's Floyd Mayweather vs Miguel Cotto, the way it's suppose to happen. Over the past few weeks Mayweather made some statements from the heart, that made others throw unjust criticism on him. Even calling him a…

THE 5 MISTAKES TIM BRADLEY CAN'T MAKE AGAINST PACQUIAO

By Kevin Davis



Tim Bradley is already making one huge mistake he can't afford to make when facing and mega-star boxing champion like Manny Pacquiao. Counting backwards, I would like to point out these five mistakes that he cannot make.



Number five. The one he is making right now, 'getting to caught up into the moment of the event.' He has been the head of the promotion. Pacquiao has taken a back seat to Tim Bradley and let him steer the ship. Surprising from someone…

MIGUEL COTTO MAY BE THE MOST CONFIDENT FIGHTER MAYWEATHER HAS EVER FACED

By Kevin Davis

The way the opening presser for the Mayweather vs Miguel Cotto fight started in Puerto Rico, you would thought Cotto was the favorite. Mayweather seemed rather, like it was another day at the office, while Cotto looked as if he could fight right then and there. Maybe Mayweather is already playing mind games with Cotto giving him a false sense of security. Making him believe he is not taking the fight serious and getting Cotto hopes up, but you could…

By Kevin Davis



I spoke to WBO Batamweight Champion, 'El Travieso' Jorge Arce through a translator, name Miguel Asevedo the other day to talk about the fight he badly wants with Nonito 'The Filipino Flash' Donaire'.



KARCENO: Hey Champ, glad to speak to you again I just wanted to ask a few questions then I will let you continue your training. Why do you want this fight so much?



JORGE ARCE: "I…

In a Boxingsocialist Exclusive, I was able to sit down and chat with Lightweight Brandon "Bam Bam" Rios and talk with him about his upcoming fight with featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa.

EVEN IF PACQUIAO DECIDES TO RETIRE, PINOY BOXING IS HERE TO STAY

By Kevin Davis

Even if the great Manny Pacquiao decides to hang up the gloves, the sport of boxing has grown so much in his country that, the fans will come out and support the other pinoy fighters. Three years ago I would have not believed you but when you start to see fighters like Milan Melindo and Donnie Nietes, you are starting to see the start of something different. They are not learning how to fight like Pacquiao, they are learning to succeed like…

CAN DANA WHITE EXPLAIN WHY HIS FIGHTERS ARE NOT RECEIVING AN AMICABLE SPLIT

By Kevin Davis

It seems as if Dana White should be concerned about his own house, rather than worry about another fighter from another sport. Sportswriter Jeff Fox reported that in 2011, UFC fighters on average, salaries were around 91,000 dollars. 72 fighters made less than made 10,000 dollars or less. Tito Ortiz tops the list for 2011, he probably ended up making less in 2011 than in 2010.  His new UFC contract doesn't give him a cut of the pay-per-view revenue…

PACQUIAO ISN'T THE ONLY ONE ATTACHING HIMSELF TO MAYWEATHER NAME

By Kevin Davis

 

 

What a wild wild world we live in, I remember when a time you had to actually do something to be famous. Nowadays all you have to do is get your name attached to someone else and it can boost your stock. Manny Pacquiao has gained global popularity because of the Mayweather name and now there is another Dana White, the President of the company UFC, the mixed martial art giants. White went on the attack yesterday, claiming that the 6-time world champion…

TIM BRADLEY HAS NEVER BEEN OUTWORKED IN THE RING...EVER

By Kevin Davis

 

One thing is for sure, Timothy Bradley has never been in the ring with someone with the resume of Manny Pacquiao, and Pacquiao has always been the fighter known for outworking his foe. This may surprise even Manny but Timothy Bradley has never been outworked in the ring.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER'S MANAGER LEONARD ELLERBE RESPOND TO DANA WHITE OUTBURST

By Kevin Davis

 

Earlier today, UFC president Dana White decided it was time for him to jump on a bandwagon that had left the station over a week ago. Even went as far as to call Mayweather a racist. Floyd Mayweather's manager Leonard Ellerbe was upset by this unprovoked attack on Mayweather's character.

 

"He needs to shut the [expletive] up and mind his own business, stay in his own lane and keep on taking advantage of the UFC fighters, while underpaying them.…

PACQUIAO KEEP FIGHTING 'NICE GUYS'

By Kevin Davis

 

 

Before everyone goes on a Manny Pacquiao is the greatest rant, this is not a bash on Pacquiao. Is just that it's very weird that everyone who fought or fights Manny seem to all be nice guys. Even Margarito was nice when he was going to fight Manny, I'm not saying they need to be Dereck Chisora but a little drive and determination never hurt anyone. These guys are just so happy to be sharing the stage with Manny, they lost the real focus on why they are…

IF ONLY DAVID HAYE BROUGHT SOME OF THAT ACTION TO THE KLITSCHKO FIGHT

By Kevin Davis

 

 

David Haye has moved up the ranks in the heavyweight division, and he's retired. After his one round knockout of Team Chisora, he has turned the division upside down. If only that could have been in a legal match in the ring, we could have something great to write about, not this thuggery. Wladimir Klitschko found Haye in the summer of 2011 in what was suppose to be the fight of the decade as far as heavyweight, turned out to be a dud, not because of…

BERNARD HOPKINS ONLY PAID $85,000 OUT OF MILLION DOLLAR PURSE

By Kevin Davis

 

 

In sports history we have seen our great athletes obtain riches beyond our dreams and then somehow seem to lose it all and we all say the same thing. 'That wouldn't happen to me', until it happens to you. Boxing is the one sport in which there is no union to watch and monitor the actions of promoters. Bernard Hopkins learned early in his career to watch his money and how to protect it.

 

 

In an interview with Jemele Hill, Hopkins…

AMIR KHAN SAYS HE WILL SOMEDAY GET TO PACQUIAO STATUS

By Kevin Davis

 

 

You have to admire the fight in Amir Khan to try to convince the public even himself that he could reach such a feat. I don't believe Amir Khan will ever reach that status because I don't believe he has the skill set to win the type of fights he need to get there. 

 

 

Khan makes mistakes just like Manny Pacquiao does and like Pacquiao they don't try to improve on them. Khan is afraid to commit on his shots unlike he did before he…

IS DERECK CHISORA CRAZY?

By Kevin Davis 

 

 

What can only be explained as OMG, Dereck Chisora has brought the biggest spark to the heavyweight division, since Lewis vs Tyson. Too bad it was in the wrong way. It's a shame that many people who were giving him so much credit for fighting a spirited fight against Vitale Klitschko, has thrown that fight out the window because of the brawl sparked by Chisora at the post fight press conference.

 

 

 David Haye was at the presser…

DID COTTO CHOOSE THE RIGHT OPTION?

By Kevin Davis

 

Miguel Cotto has fought his whole career for this moment. Now a free agent Cotto had a choice to pick a rematch with Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather. It's clear that Mayweather is the fight he always wanted to make, but as a career and business decision, Is a fighter with Mayweather a riskier task. Some thought he should have fought Pacquiao at a catch weight of 150lbs. Cotto didn't want to make the sacrifice, Arum said that they offered Cotto around…
