Eubank will be taught a humbling lesson and will have to follow the traditional route. His dad's talked him into this fight and now he's going to be run out and down to the bottom of the pack.

I guess Eubank will never win "Mr. Congeniality" on that side of the pond--or anywhere else!

"Slogans and pep talk ain't gonna cut it in the corner if he wants to continue at the championship level."

You will be shocked. You will be wrong. C-Al better do it, or he will not last long.

The right combo of words must be said to a pug "In the corner."

You have to give the fighter an effective, correct thought, or he has lost every that he has sought.

Boxing is a super-quick super-thinking sport. If you're thinking wrong -- "you are blowing it, son" -- you won't last long.

If the "pep talk" in corner causes you to think quick, of the right combos, you will have your pick.

As a boxer who was a rocket scientist said: "It ain't rocket science!"

It is the sweet science, my friend. If you don't have the right fit, you won't be able to do or know that you can do the top syet. You just got to get the fit. Or you will never have or get what pugs call "Da IT!"

And "Da IT" is the ignition to da powerful position to that proper thought that C-Al should've brought. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-v-IMSKOtoE. Holla!

Nailed it Commish. The kid needs boxing people around him. Glass half full = he survived 12 rounds with the best fighter in the world (no worst than 2nd anyway) Glass half empty=had no idea of how to win.

The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that Algieri should make a switch for the betterment of his boxing career. If he doesn't change trainers, he should just pack it in and head to medical school now, because boxing is only going to get tougher and tougher for him.

Also, the more I think about it, he and Cooney woulod be such a great fit. Cooney has already shown The Shadow some tricks, and that's been in the studio during a break!

Imagine what he could do with Algieri during a two-hour gym session!!!

"Jesse Reid is as good a trainer as anyone in the business in this writers opinion. Besides that he is a man's man and one willing to listen and not do a lot of bragging like too many other trainers in this business. His son is a good assistant and Gabe Rosado becoming a complete offensive fighter instead of a part time boxer, part time fighter in the same fight for a change. Gabe never seemed to look comfortable whether he was in with Pooh Ennis or Peter Quillin. At the post conference I told Quillin that Rosado "deserves a re-match". He would have that WBO title that Quillin gave up recently. Passing on a 154 title fight for a "shot" at the best P4P fighter in boxing in my opinion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin may have fattened his bank account but it sure didn't help from losing enough blood in that one to prevent several people cleaning up his blood afterwards in the ring. I'm glad he admitted to losing that one. He did half half around of backing up GGG but otherwise it was survival like all of GGG's opponents go into once they are hit."


Jesse Reid is a class act...as well as a great trainer.

"I’m expecting 2015 to be a bangup year for boxing, and lord, I’m hoping so, as 2014 was a nasty comedown from 2013. Lots of new product will be hitting the shelves, and one new entry into the mix kicks off their slate on Dec. 13.
CBS Sports Network will run a two-hour live show on that night, and follow up with a show on Jan. 2, I was told today, by Joseph Gentile, a producer of the series, which is called “Ringside Red Carpet.?
Gentile, a financier who’s married to actress Cathy Moriarty (“Raging Bull”), said he has a “multifight” deal with CBS, and his boxing side partner Sal Musumeci, a promoter with a few decades in the game, will be open to any and old promoters who want to place their kids on Red Carpet shows.
Both the Dec. 13 and Jan. 2 shows will unfold at the Hammerstein Ballrrom in Manhattan, which used to feature fights put on by Lou Dibella, and also Cedric Kushner.
The first event will be held on Saturday, December 13 at 8:00 PM, ET. Charles Martin, a heavyweight promoted by King Sports, will be featured, as will Notre Dame grad Mike Lee (13-0, with 7 KOs; last fight was in July, beat Paul Gonsalves via MD6), who will fight, and then take off the gloves and replace them with a headset, to help call the action.
"Ringside Red Carpet will feature high level boxing, along with the spectacle and big-event feel to each event," Musumeci said. “The goal is to have the 56 million US subscribers to CBS Sports Network sitting back, and feeling like they are a ringside,” Gentile told me.
Martin (18-0-1 with 16 KOs; born in Missouri), in camp at Abel Sanchez’ gym in Big Bear, will rumble with Raphael Zumbano Love (35-8-1 with 28 Kos; from Argentina; age 33; stopped just once, in 2006; lost to Shannon briggs in June).
King exec Paul Cain said that Martin is on message, at about 245 now, and got great work at Amir Mansour’s recent camp. “Hopefully, HBO or Showtime will be onto Charles,” he said. “And right now he’s headlining for Sal and Joe. We want a Klitschko fight sooner rather than later. Charles thinks and we think he’s good enough.”
Gentile said he will soon announce some of the Hollywood talent who will make a red-carpet entrance and attend the scraps. “I love the sport and want to bring out the best of it,” he stated. “It’s open to all promoters, I’d like this series to be like Switzerland like that! Bring me a great fight, which is good for the sport, good for the audience live and on TV.”Gentile thinks Lee is a real keeper, and he will get lots of love from RRC. “He has a a finance degree, he’s a sweetheart, he’s altruistic, he’s a good looking kid, and apparently the ladies like him! It’d be great to bring more female boxing fans to the audience. Lee is just a great role model.”As for the January show, Gentile said he will announce participants on that card on Dec. 13. Musumeci told me he’s looking to fill out the Dec. 13 slate with one more fight, apart from the Martin and Lee scraps, and said he’s sifting through a bunch of possibles."


Can't wait for these shows. Boxing is going to have a huge year in 2015.

Not big. Not grande.

HUGE!

Michael Woods and I were with him last week at Kingsway Gym in NYC. His smile lit up the room.

Woodsy did a short interview with him.

Just listening the his positive attitude---as he shifted his legs with his hands--brought tears to my eyes.

What a true champion he is!

"I enjoy watching Thurman but is he really the most feared? He is fighting C level fighters while he should be fighting B level fighters. 39 year old Bundu?

Thurman is in his prime, it is time to step up and he will be so much better for it. If he goes from fighting C level fighters right to the A list he will be outclassed as history shows us.

Its not his fault because Thurman comes to fight and calls guys out but his advisor is not doing right by him. Turning down the Roc Nation offer was not a good career move. He would of had some nice buzz going for him if he was the first boxer signed by Roc Nation and I am sure they would have rolled out the red carpet for him as well as paying him huge paydays."


I was at Gavin v Bundu a few months back and I think it's going to be a good test for Thurman. We've seen him dropped before by Soto Karass but Bundu is in better shape and hits harder than SK. He's also hittable but he's a bully and will come forward to meet Thurman in the centre of the ring. If it goes the distance, it will be an invaluable lesson for Thurman. If Thurman stops him at some point then he makes a further statement about his power and picks climbs up closer to the world title.

That said I think you're right, it was a bad move to not sign with Roc Nation. He's in the right weight class and has the likability both inside and outside the ring to be a star, and no doubt that's what Roc Nation had in mind..

I spoke to a friend yesterday, the guy who actually introduced Chris Algieri to Tim Lane several years ago. Awhile back, Lane burned that friend and the two no longer speak.

"Tim is all about Tim," said my friend. "He has dreams of being famous, of being a celebrity." Well, he got his 15 minutes--and more! His time is up!"

That it is.

It's time for a new trainer, one who is more about Algieri than he is about fame for himself.

I would love to see that trainer be Gerry Cooney.

"I like it. If PAC is going to 140 he might as well beat the champion at the weight. Barclays might get it. I think PAC boxes his ears off. Angel Garcia might pop a vein in his neck yelling at Freddie Roach.

Will tsAH allow it? Danny has a cushy gig fighting guys like Salka."




This fight is a possibility, but not at 140. Garcia has said he is through killing himself to make 140. I'm not sure if he is even comfortable at 147, but that is where he belongs.



Because of his heart, his drive, the power in his hook and the pop in his jab, Garcia should at least be competitive against Pacquiao, but only at 147, nothing lower.



If not Pacquiao, who then for Garcia at 147.



How about Brandon Rios?

"I haven't been able to speak with him yet. I think he's gonna' rest for a day or so before heading back out into the world. I know this: Gerry Cooney will NOT contact Algieri about dumping his two trainers, or at least, Tim Lane, unless Algieri does it on his own.

"Once I hear he is free and talking to people, only then will I speak to Chris and suggest we try working together."

If Cooney can improve even Algieri's jab, Algieri will benefit greatly. Then, to add power to his hook and some leverage will make Algieri much more dangerous, not a fighter whom opponents can walk right in on with no fear of being hit by pitty-pat shots.

Hopefully, it's so long, Tim and hello to Gerry.

GC truly believes he can make a big difference in the style and career of Chris Algieri.

So do I.

"Wow cool stuff. The way I see it is that Pacquaio chooses his spots a lot better now so he lands that left more which means he's less likely to get caught when he goes in for that "shift punch". Before he would do that sequence 5 times every 15 seconds it seemed and he did overreach a bit. I would like to know what C-AL really says on why he lost. He's an articulate dude and it'd be interesting..."

This card, which will be seen on ESPN3, is filled with 12-rounders, some for European titles, some for Commonwealth titles and others as title eliminators.

Of course, the Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora bout is not just for Chisora's European heavyweight crown. It is for a shot at Wladimir Klitschko's WBO title. Hopefully, neither brittle guy will stub a toe or chip a fingernail between now and Saturday and be forced to pull out of the fight. Fingers are crossed.

As for Saunders-Eubank, this could turn into a wild one.he fact is, these guys are not merelyopponents on Saturday night. They totally dislike one another.

Last July 26, they fought in separate bouts on a card at te Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, England. Saunders won his bout by a TKO in 8, while Eubank drilled his opponent in the first round. Later, the two had to be separated by several men in the dressing room area.

On Saturday, they will be turned loose on each other, with only referee Michael Alexander there to pull them apart and see they adhere to the rules.

Both are undefeated. Eubank is 18-0 (13), while Saunders is 20-0 (11). However, it's Eubank who was far busier in 2014, winning all six of his matches. Saunders fought just once, winning in July. However, he suffered an eye cut in that bout and his been inactive since.

Both say they are ready and itching for the bell to ring.

I can't wait for the main course of Fury-Chisora, but Eubank-Saunders is one heck of an appetizer.

Danny's got a powerful philly sharpened left hook which if he times it rightly might catch Pac over his jab, but otherwise he's going to be bulldozed. I think he's tough but he needs to get a few more tough 12 rounders under his belt before embarking on a Pac fight. Fighting Salka's and getting gifts isn't going to prepare you for Manny.

I think it was a solid run for an up comer. Danny's a tough kid. I think he'd give PAC a nice little tussle. Much rather see him against PAC than the over talked .....over priced Mayweather bout. Definitely would be more action.

It was the most innocuous of questions, a by-the-numbers query meant to communicate a degree of civility. “How you doin, Mike?” 140-pound prospect Zachary Ochoa asked me at the start of a Tuesday phoner, meant to get some lowdown on his Dec. 6 clash against TBD at Barclays Center.
