No Female Boxer Has More Buzz Than Heather Hardy Right Now

Photo courtesy of Elizabeth Graham I dare say she is the hottest woman in pro boxing, and hey, before you level me with on point counterpunching that I shouldn't be touching on the attractiveness of a female athlete, as I wouldn't attach the same import to a male one, let me point out that I'm talking about buzz. Yes, Heather Hardy, who gloves up against TBD at Barclays Center on April 11, has stirred up a degree of buzz which at least bears watching. The right-handed boxer-puncher, who fights under the Lou DiBella promotional umbrella, has...

The Stage Is Set For Thurman To Mark His Arrival Versus Guerrero

It's something you hear all the time about budding fighters on the way up that haven't fully flowered. You watch them fight during the infancy of their career and you see their obvious skill set and ability. Sometimes they'll blow you away on the way up and you think just maybe the particular fighter has a chance to be a factor in their division. A little later down the road they'll step up in class and fight an opponent who thinks its okay to fight back and that's when their warts become more pronounced. Not so much so that you're ready to...

Cotto Lost and Regained

When Miguel Cotto entered the ring against Antonio Margarito on July 26, 2008, he did so as more than a well thought-of champion. With a record of 32-0 and 26 knockouts, Cotto was on the short list of best pound for pound fighters in the world. He had recent wins over near peak-level fighters like Shane Mosley and Zab Judah. When the bell sounded for round one, he was the favorite. Early on, Cotto made the odds-makers look wise. His superior skill, hand speed, and activity kept him in control of the early rounds. However, his fortunes...

Miguel Cotto Joins the Roc Family, Fighting June 6 in NYC, Foe TBD

Miguel Cotto, the 34-year-old future Hall of Famer, announced that he would be joining Roc Nation's boxing department on ESPN's First Take program on Thursday morning. The move shows that the Jay Z crew is dead serious about being a mega-player in the boxing space, if their signing of Andre Ward didn't already show that. Cotto then took questions at an intimate lunch in NYC, at the tony 21 Club on 52nd St. and told media that he will fight June 6, in NYC, venue and TV and foe TBA. The fighter said that he aligned with Roc because they...

Be Aware, Mayweather-Pacquiao Will Not Look Like Gatti-Ward 1

I'm worried, my friends. I am worried that we are in a place where we are setting ourselves up to over-promise, and under-deliver. The Fight, I'm talking about. On May 2, we are going to get a couple million folks who really never watch boxing, maybe never have, or maybe last did when Tyson was still the Baddest Man on the Planet, instead of a cartoon character. (Literally, he has his own cartoon, I'm not busting chops!) And many of those folks will have been lured in by the hype. They are hearing the trumpets blaring, and seeing snippets...

Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao: Legit Super Fight Or Manufactured One?

Starting with this column I'll be doing one article per week, Countdown To Mayweather-Pacquiao, until the fight, examining it from different angles. I'll cover their best fights, what a win or a loss means for each fighter, who will win and why, and more. Is the upcoming spectacle between welterweight title holders Floyd Mayweather 47-0 (26) and Manny Pacquiao 57-5-2 (38) a legitimate Super Fight? The obvious answer to that has to be yes since it will no doubt be the highest grossing fight in fistic history. And a lot of that has to do with...

Mayweather, Pacquiao and the Happy Media

All was quiet for so very on long on the western as well as eastern fronts. External pressures at last forced the sport of boxing's two biggest commodities to paint themselves into such a corner that verbal jabs were no longer sufficient. The only corners that would matter this time would be the four which help encompass the squared circle. The only jabs would be the ones that snap at the elbow in the hopes of creating the perfect effect. Would the forthcoming titanic matchup between Manny and Money have been as popular as the memes which...

Mayweather-Pacquiao Is ON; May 2, Las Vegas

They flirted, danced, dated, split up, engaged in a back and forth spat which raged on, interrupted by periods of hoped for reconciliation…only to see the wholeprocess repeated. Boxing has never and hopefully will never again see a silly saga like the Mayweather-Pacquiao negotiations…which have cometo a close, praise to the heavens, with the word that boxing's two main drivers will fight each other, on May 2, in Las Vegas. Even non-believers, concrete atheists, found themselves thankingtheHeavenswhen they...
