Add this to the mix.



The WBO has ordered Rigo to defend his WBO title against #1 Chris Avalos, who happens to be promoted by Top Rank.



If Rigo doesn't fight for another belt and unify then Rigo vs Avalos will have to go to purse bid.



Golden Boy, Top Rank, Warren, and Roc nation are going to be bidding it seems.

Jive-turkey hypocrites! These corrupted alphabet-sanctioning organizations are just trying to steal and halt the mad thunder that coming from this international amateur association that is the oncoming SUPER sanctioning POWER of the pros.

WBC, IBF and WBA are trying to united before they are terminated. We are finishing up the Youth Olympic Games here in China, and are not getting an iota of coverage on the mainland USA. WHY! Forget it! To the hypocrites and ____ ____ _____ ____, I say BYE! Don't you CRY! Holla!

"Nobody can argue that Hopkins is a first ballot hall of famer and still fights like one at 49 or 50, but tell me Radam, is he going to grow old in the ring all of a sudden or are people going to spot the decline in the gym ? Or maybe nobody will ever see it if he retires at the right time !"

His decline (or more like inability to do da d@mn thang anymore) will be notice and straight-up, without a bit of fright, told to him by his trusted trainer and brother-in-faith "Genie" Naazim Richardson.

B-Hop is the REAL DEAL! Even more than was Evander Holyfield. And ev'ybodee and dey momma around the "Alien" know when to kneel.

All at sudden once, one day, he will say to the world: "Now it is over. My body can no longer recover."

When that time is coming, I don't know. But in the meantime, we are all declining every single iota of a second. That comes with living.

The wise one always gets around decline. The double heck if he is going to pay that fine. For so is the sun way up there in the sky is on decline. But shining, it keeps giving. Holla!

They're **** blocking Rigo from greatness out of greed, which is fair enough, I guess, but you already made your money back and then some.

Let the dude become a star. Seems like they want to keep him a slave, Kunta'ing the boy all over the place. These bastards probably call him Toby in private.

Not feeling them at all. He has to resort to signing with Frank Warren?! That washed up, bitter promoter everyone can't seem to want to leave fast enough?!

It's business though, if he can get three fights, it's cool. But when you have Zordon out in Cali ready to get it poppin', those human smugglers just need to get out of the way."


Hehehehe! Danggit! You are coming hard with it, The Shadow. OMFG!

If they call him Toby in private, they might drug him and cut off his foot. And on blame it on him being drunk and swimming in a pool of sharks.Holla!

If the fight happens, I'm calling a crushing, disturbing KAYO for Sam Soliman. The state of Mississippi should be tried for cruelty to the disabled. JT has been disagnosed with brain damage. In more states, he would not be allowed to come within smell distance of a squared jungle. Holla!

"I read this story and have been trying to make sense of why Rigo would sign with Warren. I was telling myself there has to be some logical sense. But as of it I have not found any. A match between Warren and Rigo makes absolutely no sense and will do nothing for Rigo's career. I still could be missing something but this is one that's hard to figure out at the moment."



Could it be a negotiation tactic to try and make Roc Nation up the ante or sweeten the contract?



Does Warren have options on Kiko Martinez, Frampton, or Selby? What is the angle?

Rigo has strong ties in Europe... He is as European as he is American ( in a sense).. Plus it may make it easier for Rigo to corner Framton or Quigg.
In addition to this Fifty cent probably soured Rigo against any "Rapper/Promoter" by his mishandling of Gambia.

Jermain Taylor is shot.



He is not in his prime. JT carries his lazy jab too low and doesn't bring it back quick enough. Sam Solimon has the conditioning and the mental fortitude to carry him the full 12 rounds if need be.He just shut out Sturm in Germany.



JT will get out-hustled and possibly stopped against SS.

Hopkins will dominate and make him look like an amateur. If Tarver barely layed a glove on him, SK hasn't a farts chance in the wind. He's going from elementary school straight to MIT. He will be lost and confused and give up around round 6 or 7 then it's all down hill from there.

"Y'all think them shots fired on his cousin was something? Wait till you see the shots that will land on old arse Soliman!



A jab shot like a laser. A cannon right hand. Combinations unleashed with the rapid firepower of a semi-automatic Uzi.



And the coupe de grace, which he learned from Paulie Malignaggi, the rocket launcher -- I know y'all remember that one -- you know, the one where the left hand is low but the right hand is lower.



In fact, the right hand stealthily hovers around his thigh, but is then launched from the hip with military suddenness before it detonates on the middle aged chrome dome of the Aussie.



And do y'all think that ugly mug shot of his ugly mug from last night was saying something?!



Just wait for the one that will be released in Mississippi when JT gets arrested for attempted murder with an assault weapon -- his handssss -- but only this time, he will once again wear his honorable IBF belt (The only non-corrupt organization out there) proudly.



In the mug shot.



(Ironically the one that was stripped from him unjustly when he honorably granted Bernard Hopkins a rematch. Talk about politics!)



Soliman does not want that work."




A very chilling portrayal of doom and destruction.

If you keep talking about guns we may have an unexpected.visitation by GunHo Zimmerman who was last sited in Ferguson following two teens with his gun drawn before his arrest.

His car was stocked with a surplus of guns and knives.

He must have heard it was "open season" in the dysfunctional city.



Taylor is a better boxer than Soliman ... But Soliman is and old work horse. He will take over the fight against the endurance challenged Taylor by the sixth round.

After Hopkins schooled Pavlik in 2008, I swore for however longer he fought that I'd never pick against Hopkins again.

Leading up to the Pavlik fight, Hopkins was coming off the loss to Calzaghe and it appeared father time might finally be catching up to him. The emphasis on that sentence is might because he proved in that Pavlik fight that he still near the top of his game at 43 in 2008.

I was in Vegas when that fight took place and Hopkins was a 4.5 to 1 underdog when the opening bell rang. I went up to the window to bet Hopkins, asked for the odds and for whatever reason decided to take a step back and think about it some. I said to myself I'd probably have more fun blowing the $100 on slots or blackjack then on a fight I can't even see (I could not for the life of me find a place in Vegas to watch that fight).

Well blow the $100 I did and quickly...and when I got the result later that evening on the fight made the pronouncement to myself to always pick Hopkins going forward no matter how old he was or who he was fighting.

That was 2008...And I havn't picked against him since.

And for this fight...I am picking Kovalev. Probably, will regret doing this too especially since my brother has offered to lay a few buck on Hopkins for me in Vegas.

I still think Hopkins is a great fighter and at 49 potential pound for pound entrant. But this is more about how I feel that Kovalev is the real deal. I think Kovalev is going to be a star in this sport. More so than I thought about Pavlik six years ago.

Kovalev is committed to boxing and has so much natural talent. He is so fluid in the ring. Everything he does seems to come naturally. His timing is impeccable. He knows how to use footwork and work behind a stiff jab to get the best angles to land his power punches often times in combination. And that power, in my opinion is pound for pound the hardest puncher in the sport at the moment.

Hopkins won't make it easy for Kovalev and will use his trick. He will have his moments. But I think Kovalev is just going to be too much for Hopkins at this point in time of their respective careers.

That said, I have been wrong before on Hopkins.

Well, apparently Taylor has been granted a request to travel out of state for the October fight. So remarkably in spite of the events that have transpired there may be a fight against Soliman after all.

Hehehe! Fiddy is coming your way. He said that Money May can't read words. He will say that the Commish cannot read body language.

C-Al is probably not aware of his chances until the bell rings and he misses the first punch, and a ton more while getting bombed and nuked. Holla!

Its obviously going to be tough for Jones to come back from this. It is a major set back in once appeared to be a very promising career.

I wonder too how much his heart was really in the sport. He took two years off after Randall Bailey shockingly ko'd him and in that time was pretty much unheard from. By all accounts from this fight, he ran out of gas after a good start. So you have to wonder how seriously he took his conditioning.

As far as a future in the sport, well that's up to him. If his heart is not in it, then he needs to get out. But if he can get properly motivated and into proper condition, well maybe he can still make a run at things. That's a big if though given what he showed in this come back effort.

Ain't no way in hell Algieri is gonna win even 1 round against Pac- he's the man I can't pick, and with this sport he wont stick!

He's lucked himself into this fight- now he's in way over his head with an opponent he can't hold a candle to.

An understandably desirable position to be in though- a big fight like this will give him money and fame- and allow him to honourably retire on a high, after losing to one of the greats of our era.

Sergey Kovalev Is Bernard Hopkins' Worst Nightmare

Light heavyweight Sergey Kovalev isn’t the type of fighter an almost 50-year-old former middleweight should be fighting, no matter how much an all-time great he is. Kovalev is not the man to mess around with. He’s naturally larger than Hopkins, a devastating puncher and possesses a wealth of solid amateur experience. In short, Kovalev is Hopkins’ worst nightmare, at least when he’s 31 and Hopkins is 49. He’s an offensive juggernaught in his physical prime who fights lean and mean and has never tasted defeat. Kovalev demolished...
