Mayweather Talks Retirement, Entry Into Entertainment World Post 49th

If he holds true to his party's line, this will be the last time Floyd Mayweather will have to do what he did tonight, get on a conference call and answer queries from a press which I think it likely he by and large despises, though he professes to be thankful for their participation. Mayweather took questions for about 25 minutes or so, a couple of which were devoted to asking what he thought of Serena Williams' recent run. I don't knock that line of thinking, but being that many of us not in the preferred loop of trusteds/not hateds,...

Eamonn Magee: Dignity in Troubled Times

An hour before the biggest fight of his career, Eamonn Magee stood outside the MEN Arena in Manchester, England, smoking a cigarette. Inside, more than 20,000 fans were preparing to vent their animosity toward the Belfast man ahead of his bout with hometown hero Ricky Hatton. Always one to show defiance, Magee later exacerbated the hostile crowd’s ire by wearing an outfit in the Irish tricolor with sunglasses of the same design. As he was called to approach the ring for that 2002 fight, Magee (above, in Rich Wade photo, see more on...

BROOKLYN BRAWL RECAP: BOXING STANDS OUT AMONG THE ATTRACTIONS IN CONEY ISLAND BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Sept. 2, 2015) – Boxing came back to Coney Island last Tuesday night, and by all accounts, it was a smashing success.

Cotto Makes The Rules Because He’s Liked And Can Get Away With It

Everybody in boxing or who follows it is excited about the upcoming WBC middleweight title bout between champion Miguel Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) and the dangerous Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs) on Nov. 21. Because of their styles, this should make for a compelling bout between two superstars. However, Alvarez will be the third consecutive opponent to challenge Cotto for the title (following Sergio Martinez and Daniel Geale) who is not allowed to weigh in as a full-fledged middleweight, because Cotto demanded and got the Mexican-based...

Rumor Mill Says Tim Bradley Vs. Brandon Rios In the Works

The mill is grinding, once again. We're hearing that Tim Bradley is going to tangle with Brandon Rios, Nov. 7, in Los Angeles. That scrap, featuring members of the Top Rank crew, would be much anticipated, being that Bradley impressed mightily in his last tangle, vs. Jessie Vargas, and Rios, it seems, is dialed into training, doing 5 AM road-work, and but of course has a personality which makes him must see. I presume HBO would televise this pitting off A grade names... I reached out to Bradley, and a Rios contact to verify and didn't...

Diego De La Hoya Challenges Jesus Ruiz For WBC Youth Title

When Diego De La Hoya’s name is mentioned, most knowledgable boxing people agree the youngster is talented. That’s no surprise; as a cousin of 10-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya, he certainly has the bloodlines. Not only that, but the exciting kid from Mexicali, Baja California, has speed, power and stamina to go with a pedigree that can open any door in boxing. After nearly two years as a pro, the 21-year-old De La Hoya (11-0, 7 KOs) faces a stiff test against veteran Jesus Ruiz (34-6-5, 23 KOs) on Friday, at the Belasco Theater...

WOODS: Santa Cruz-Mares Was NOT A Classic In My Eyes

Expectations can be a heckuva thing. How many times have you heard about a blockbuster flick, read up on it, seen tons of Tweets on it, heard friends and neighbors making plans to watch it. You make your plans, brain buzzing, waiting to be blown away...and end the night thinking, Ho hum. That wasn't all that. You grumble some and vow to be more efficient in fending off the noise, in making up your own mind for yourself, in not falling for the hype. The expectations bug bit all associated with #MayPac, and you see the winner of the bout...
