I'm glad that you refrained. No way that Da Manny would have been on BB's enhancement train. It brought BB too much pain. And for all those years doing dat syet, what did him gain? A big cranium, big feet and all his records when down the drain. Holla!

Just kidding.

We're in the minority, here, CC.

As I am calling for an Algieri win, I'm in a pool by myself on this great site.

Well, we've done interviews with guys like the incredibly bored Mike Jones ("Yeh!" "Uh-huh." "Maybe") and the very loquatious, funny, lively Shannon Briggs. Live interviews with boxers makes for some interesting radio.

I look forward to his being in-studio for two hours. Some won't like him, others will. Either way, Shadow and I are gonna' have two hours of super fun that night. I'd love to get a few of you (Woodsy, Carmine Cas, Deepwater2) in the area into the studio that night, too.

Bernie Campbell even injected his inimitable style onto the SiriusXM airwaves--once under his own name, then again as caller "Felix from Brooklyn." Both times, he was classic Bernie.

""The Cannon" is also a self idiot. A lawyer defending himself is an idiot. A boxer training himself is a super idiot.



A multi-science adventure as boksing needs a team. Boksing is indeed a team sport. Just as lawyering or doctoring are team professions. Extra eyes and extra neurons will forever be needed. You cannot do it all by yourself.



No boxer is a lone wolf. That is why you haven't heard a pug with the nickname of "The Lone Wolf." Holla!"

So today we had Shannon "The Cannon" Briggs on the show.

In short, dude was amazing. His charisma, enthusiasm and passion shined through forcefully. He had me compelled to the point where I actually for a second thought he had a legitimate shot!

He shed light on a number of issues, including the fact that he's not only self-managed and self-promoted, he's also self-trained!

"I don't want nobody stealing my money!" he exclaimed. "Let's go, champ!"

Whether he was shedding light on his workout regimen ("I lost a 100 pounds!"), the controversial fallout with his business partners in the wake of his brutal fight with Big Bro Klitschko ("Shelly Finkel is a dirty piece of ****") or simply stating his case for a showdown with Wladimir K., Shannon carried the entire show.

He also shared things off the record -- including confirming one super secret rumor yours truly had gotten wind off down in South Florida -- that only made me believe more is in store for The Buff Bomber.

(Stay tuned. That's all I can tell y'all.)

And speaking of Wlad, when we asked him about his Klitschko encounters and how he managed to track down "Lil Klit," as Randy G. calls him, he had this to say.

"I told everybody, if they see him they let me know," he said. "And I'd pay people to tell me where he is so I can stalk him wherever he goes."

Whatever people may think of his ability, the boxing world is a shark tank. You gotta stand out any way you can.

And a lot of people could take lessons from The Cannon how you get your name out there.

Word is Shannon will join us in-studio in a few weeks for a full two-hour session. You guys will NOT want to miss this one.

Actually Lil' Floyd knew about Vicious(less) Vic Ortiz like everyone else -- from the pugvine. VVO is a long-time liar. That sucka will always bit the hand that feeds him. And dat muthafibber is a big-time biter.

He stole -- or tried to steal -- the true story of the Washington D.C. Lamont brothers.

It is a small, small boksing world. And BIG lies don't have a lot of room and staying power.

There some mighty eyes from the game's watch tower. And you bullsyet! Especially against your own family! You will be eaten clam chowder. Holla!

Carmine Cas:

What some of you alluded to is the fact Kovalev is just a power puncher and also not a volume puncher. I think the latter will be his undoing against Hopkins. Although he does rely on skill to set up his power punches, unless he develops another layer to his game; his style will not serve him well against Hopkins. I'm going with BHop in this one but I Kovalev is a live dog.

If Andre's contract does not expire until 11/2016 he needs to get in the ring and fight and possibly buy out his contract. I know it's a tricky situation but he's not doing himself any favors sitting on the shelf.

The addition of Alexa Ariza adds squat to the camp of $$$May. Does Team $$$ think Ariza's addition will help them? Psyche Maidana? It will do neither.



Radam is on target with his calling Ariza a "traveling tramp."



A match made in heaven? I don't think so.



It was made somewhere else!

Ariza seems to have a difficult time holding down a job ! For some reason I don't think his luck is going to change !

deepwater2:

Floyd might be advising Ariza on who to work with and will let him juice up his security team; because Floyd knows how to train and stretch without this guy's help.

Ariza is going to wear out his welcome in boxing camps because no one likes a rat. What goes on in training camp is supposed to stay with the camp. Even Floyd keeps his sparring sessions in super secret mode.

I don't think that MM has any secrets in the ring. He is always on the hunt and lets his hands go any which way he can.

I see a UD for Floyd 8-4 , the ref will break them a bit early and will be quick to issue warnings this time around.

"You guys are more than likely spot on. But I have seen some training tape of Mayweather adding a little difficulty to his routine.

Like you say Shadow..if he puts Maidens to sleep with one punch he'd better be prepared for the backlash."


Optical illusions. Money May has his cameraman/videographer. Camera tricks to sucker opponents are what you are seeing. Holla!

brownsugar:

I think you're the one with all the answers fightwriter....I didn't even think of the "debriefing" angle because I was preoccupied with another aspect of the unlikely union.

However Floyd is known to do his homework...

Floyd's reading skills may need refinement but Floyd still absorbs information like the CIA.

remember when he busted Ortiz for perpetrating a fraudulent story about being tossed out on the curb and abandoned with his baby brother with nothing but the starry sky for a roof.... only for Floyd to discover he had spent much of that so called homeless time living in his fathers house.

Obviously more will be revealed.

"The hyped-up "High Hopes" C-Al will get KTFO. He is no Cali Cranium Crusher Bradley or Hulkquez or Marquez. He is no boxer PERIOD! He is a kick boxer that has not, and will not, transition to elite boxing. I'm not impress with these umpteen optical illusions being done for him.

He didn't beat the Siberian Rocky. And Bradley tried to kayo tSR early. Now that is what happen. Three M is going to catch C-Al early and easily and put his hyped-up arse viciously to sleep. November is Thanksgiving not gift giving. C-Al will not get a gift anything in Macau.

He is in a place that he shouldn't be. And that's WHY on November 22 USA time, he will see.

OOPS! My BAD! On that day, in dat squared jungle, he will end up seeing the pitch black of the inside of his eyelids. Great created promotion is going on, because a whole lot of things about about him have been hid .

After the fight, for the gloves that 3m kayo him with, I will put in a bid.

You have a whole lot of Yanks really believing C-Al has a chance. And now his arse is in a trance. And he's actually believing that he is going make this bout 3m's last dance. Dat sucka C-Al is headstrong. Because he is sure not Armstrong. And Imma leave that alone. He wouldn't be on the stuff of Lance.

Hehe! Holla!"


Yeah, I also scored the fight for Provodnikov. I personally thought that the challenger didn't do enough to TAKE the title from the champion who was constantly making the fight live and active.

"Money May is just using Ariza to increase butts in the seats, and eyes watching those PPVs.



Ariza is glorified water boy when he is not doing foul syet, and trying to sneak syet into your system.



Rios came up dirty and the whole world saw what Ariza was doing in Maidana's corner with the adrenaline.



Ariza is not doing syet for Money May. Ariza is in camp because he is a traveling tramp. And he will do anything to be with a champ. On Money May's training and condition, he will not be able to put a stamp.



On Ariza's arse Pops Joy May and Uncle Roger have a clamp. Holla!"




The one and only Radam telling it like it is.



Suge, Mayweather's too much of a repetition freak, he won't add that to his regimen. At least I don't think so.



You never know. If he does retain him for real, watch Mayweather suddenly grown Sonny Liston hands and flatline fighters with grazing shots.



I once asked Memo whether he could turn Paulie into a puncher.



He said yes.



Emphatically.

Still No Consensus on Rocky Marciano's Place in Boxing History

Aug. 31 marks the 45th anniversary of the day when Rocky Marciano died in the crash of a small plane in an Iowa cornfield. The only heavyweight champion to quit the ring while undefeated -- he was 49-0, with 43 knockouts, following his final bout, a ninth-round knockout of the great Archie Moore on Sept. 21, 1955 -- Marciano was on his way to a celebration of his 46th birthday the following day, Sept. 1, in Des Moines, but he and the Cessna 172’s other two occupants, both of whom also perished, never got there.

Alex Ariza Seems To Be Advising Floyd Mayweather

There will come a time on the sports journalism beat, I think, when you will have someone, an intern maybe, dedicating themselves solely to monitoring social media accounts of the players. I'd be wise to set up something like that just to check out Floyd Mayweathers' Twitter and Instragram accounts in the weeks leading up to his bouts. There's always breaking news posted, be it TMZ level soap operatic stuff, or beefs with ex besties/rap moguls or more intriguing, arguably, items such as this one: Did you see who was helping Mr. Mayweather...

Martinez Salty At Pearson For Pullout

August 30 is almost upon us, and that date was supposed to be one to circle for the Bronx-based boxer Steven Martinez. The 15-1 (12 KOs) hitter was supposed to be showing off his stuff, that pop in both hands, that finishing instinct, against arguably the best opponent he's stepped in with as a pro, one Chris Pearson. Camp was good, weight was on target, his body and mind were firming up, and the kid was ready to rock. Win, maybe, lose, perhaps, but Aug. 30 at the Palms in Vegas, and on "ShoBox," was going to be a challenge the 24-year-old...

Can the Congressman Still Kayo?

Earlier this month, trainer and de facto spokesperson for eight-division champion Manny Pacquiao, Freddie Roach, dismissed Chris Algieri as a “boxer who has a good jab, but is nothing special. Pacquiao is going to have to press him a bit and will probably knock him out.” If the pre-fight hype follows form, you can expect Roach to beat the kayo drum louder and louder in the coming weeks as the fight draws near. Equal parts coach and boxing holy man, Roach preaches knockouts to Pacquiao’s flock of fists. But the sheep have gone...
