It's funny how he just gets yanked out of the ring by his leg, like a child.

"It would be an interesting fight for as long as it lasted, but we all know Freddie ain't letting Cotto anywhere near GGG."

I don't know King Beef. I think Cotto has the balls required to fight 3G. First Cotto should take the easier, bigger money fight against the Redheaded hype Alvarez. If Cotto wins that one he gets in with GGG for one last payday. Last fight win or lose.

"I can understand New yorkers wanting GGG vs Cotto.

Its a valid fight.

Cotto shouldn't have beat Martinez if he didn't want his name tossed into the middleweight lottery.



Also there's no such thing as a different league for natural middleweights and blown-up middleweights.

But I can't see Cotto beating Quillin, Jacobs, Arthur Abraham, Steiglitz, N'Dam, or Murray.



He couldn't get past Trout and barely beat Margarito as Margo was gaining momentum toward the end of their second fight.



He won't fight any of those guys anyway because he probably could only get a decent payday against Quillin and Jacobs and those guys are too big, strong and competent.



I think Cotto's move was a one-off so he could add a title to his legacy.

Canelo should be the only fight Cotto takes at a higher weight.



I actually expect him to confirm this in the near future.



I dont think Cotto vs GGG will ever happen."

Ward wants to fight that guy bad."


In The first video from a few months ago , Ward says GGG's team doesn't want it but he thinks Chavez Jr does want it, but at this time Wards promoter can't do business with Arum. I love Ward but GGG hasn't ducked anyone and stays busy taking any fights he can while Ward is in legal limbo. Ward needs to get active and put his legal troubles behind him.

In the second video from 11 months ago, Ward stays classy and says GGG is a good fighter but he is not a big star yet and is being force fed to the public. He can look at it that way because he earned it. It's also clear to see GGG has grown In popularity , and fans will fill arenas just to watch him knock out -5000 opponents.

Who is more exciting to watch? Who can sell more seats?

I think GGG should have a chance to clean out his division. If the other guys hold the belts hostage then it is what it is but big money has a funny way of changing things. Ward cleaned out his division and I don't see him calling out Kovalev,Hopkins, Stevenson.

Let's see how it plays out but GGG is fighting 4 times a year while Ward is busy talking to Eli seckback and not getting in the ring. It can be super fight next year if both guys are able to fight.

It's slim pickins out there. We're looking at stay busy fights.



Korobov would be a decent matchup, but the timing is no good with his December bout against Andy Lee. I'd like to think that Andy Lee could be an interesting match up for a few rounds, with his range and southpaw stance, but Golovkin would tear through Lee like a buzz-saw.



Golovkin-Kirkland would last for one round, but it would probably be the round of the year. The man is crazy, and he can bang. Too risky though. No guarantee he could stay out of jail / not crack up before the fight.

We never pulled out of a fight - against a guy with no chance to win.



Wilder and his manager might be wishing for that Roc Nation contract back.



Wilder wants the fight but he is being held up by other people. Stiverne signed on the dotted line.



Briggs is rated at number 7 maybe Roc Nation can get help him.

"I have a hard time watching Mora too. Wouldn't you like to see GGG adapt to the snake and put him out of there? I would. The snake always stinks out a fight and lasts until the end. Let's see GGG show up with a mop and bleach and clean up the stink.

I want GGG Cotto more then the rest. But I think he wants the big money Canelo fight first.

Quillin , Jacobs , Taylor will never fight GGG because of tsAH. They are starting a wrestling league or something on NBC I think.

I would love to see GGG vs Kirkland , but Kirkland has a history of being unstable. He pulls out of fights and invokes make believe injuries. He might crack up during training camp. Hopefully he is back with ann wolf full time and he can convince HBO to get on board."




Good point, I would love to see GGG mow down Mora. Fact is I am scare he will literally turn and run to stay away from GGG just to make it 12 rounds.

Perfectly put all around.


Cotto won a MW title so why the complaints that he is a small mw. He has the title period.

Fight and defend it or relinquish it and go down to jr mw.

There are many great fights to be had out there with GGG yet no one has the balls to man him up.

"I don't think this fight is happening.

Guerrero is with Haymon and Marquez with Top Rank. Unless one changes positions, this fight is not going to happen unfortunately.

Its a great hypothetical matchup and an absolute pick em fight. But we are probably not going to see it.

I think Guerrero is going to get another Haymon charge next, maybe Roberto Garcia. Guerrero will fight sporadically in very winnable fights until something much bigger presents itself.

As for Marquez, if Rios-Alvarado III happens and Rios wins I see that fight materializing. Or the Bradley rematch could be possible as well."


Not a chance in space or time that Marquez dance with Bradley again -- full of dat, and metamorphosizing into Hulkquez, or as the now old zombie moving-and-fighting Marquez. Holla!

"Phenomenal numbers. That's about the same figure Andre Ward drew against Edwin Rodriguez and a huge increase over his last fight against Daniel Geale.

Of course, TV ratings don't necessarily translate to PPV buys but I do think this is starting to shape up as a viable pay-per-view telecast.

If anything, the fight would draw good numbers. But I say save it for PPV."


These are phenomenal numbers indeed. Golovkin's star is very quickly rising.

I also agree that big HBO numbers won't necessarily mean big PPV numbers just yet either. Golovkin is rising but not yet ready to headline on his own on PPV. But with the right name opponent he would draw very well. The problem, I don't see any of those name opponents stepping in with him yet. He's too big a risk for too little a reward. At least for the first part of 2015 and maybe even the entire year, we are going to continue to see Golovkin in with the solid but overmatched foes.

Martin Murray probably gets the February fight and my guess is afterward Golovkin fights the winner of Korobov-Lee (HBO will make it well well worth the while for either of those two). After that, I think a major push will be made by Golovkin's team and HBO to make a mega fight for late in the year. The question will be will any of the names step up to the plate.

It stands to reason that GGG is picking up in viewership. As climbs his popularity, so will climb the viewership.

I think we all agree the guy is a beast against the likes of Gabe Rosado, Daniel Geale, Curtis Stevens, Marco Antonio Rubio and others like them. The question is, how will he do against the best around? Against either Floyd Mayweather or Andre Ward?

My guess is, $$$May's track record says he will not go near GGG. If he hasn't climbed into the ring against Manny Pacquiao in all these years, there is NO WAY he'll get in against GGG.

That leaves Andre Ward. GGG has said he will fight Ward. He is on the record with that. I'd love to see Ward get back into training, have himself a comeback fight (he has been inactive one year), then face GGG in a PPV spectacular in mid-2015, after GGG has disposed of his rumored next opponent, Martin Murray, in February.

Yes, PPV spectacular. Charge me whatever you want, Cablevision (my local system). I shell out $50 and up for everything else you throw at me. I would gladly pay whatever your asking price wilol be for GGG v Andre Ward.

Just the thought of it is thrilling!

GGG might have a good run. He needs the opportunity to fight for all the belts.Not a huge fan of WK but at least he was able to fight for the belts.He won the IBO,WBO,IBF,WBA belts by fighting. He will probably fight for the WBC once Stiverne-Wilder finally happens.



GGG is the WBC mandatory now so he will get a crack at that title eventually.



GGG would of fought Quillin for his belt,if he didn't duck his mandatory,make excuses and throw his belt in the trash bin.



Taylor has the IBF belt and no way tsAH makes that fight, if he did, Dibella might have to step away with concerns for Jermain's health again.



Danny Jacobs ,who holds the WBA ,would have the guts to fight GGG but tsAH would not let that fight happen ,probably will let Quillin fight for the belt in an all Brooklyn matchup.



TsAH has the WBA and the IBF belts held hostage and he won't let them go unless the public outcry forces it.

"AI should of showed up to practice. It instills work ethic and responsibility. It sure sounds funny having a ball player ramble on about " practice" but the truth is AI is out of basketball, broke, and can't even afford a cheeseburger. He should of payed more attention to practice.



Sugar Ray went to practice and that's why despite some losses at the end of a hall of fame career he has his looks, his money and he can afford as many cheeseburgers as he wants."




BINGO! HEHEHEHEHEHE! Dude is rambling and rambling about practice not meaning jack because he didn't get it. Now -- as you said -- dude is "out of basketball, broke, and can't even afford a chesseburger."



Hey, the-tennis-playing the Roast, did you get that BINGO! You never heard that "practice make perfect." And if it doesn't, it gets you pretty darn close.

Team Stiverne Tapping Toes Impatiently, But Team Wilder Seems Optimistic Deal To Be Finalized

It hasn't reached the pint of despair, but some pulling of his hair? Yes, the manager of WBC heavyweight champ Bermane Stiverne, the Canadian Camille Estephan, does admit that the lengthy negotiations, and the waiting game as he seeks to put the title defense for his guy Stiverne against Deontay Wilder together, has gotten a wee bit irksome. "We signed contracts, we're ready to go," Estephan told me Tuesday night. "The other guy seems like a talker, not a doer. The more he puts it off, the more it's gonna hurt.

Emanuel Augustus Is and Was No Andrew Golota, Or Vice-Versa

The near-fatal shooting of former fighter Emanuel Augustus – by all accounts, he remains in critical condition – recalled one of the more curious weekends a lot of boxing writers, myself included, ever were a part of. The contrast between what happened in The Palace at Auburn Hills, in a tony suburb of Detroit, on Oct. 20, 2000, was in stark contrast to what happened one night later, in Motown’s gritty, old Cobo Hall. Those two very different bouts should have reminded everyone in attendance at both events that success in boxing owes...

Golovkin's Style, Power Means He's Capable of Klitschko-ish Domination

Roberto Duran is on the list, Joe Frazier* is on the list and so is Mike Tyson. The list in this particular instance is of the fighters who immediately come to mind when thinking of boxers who have to be categorized as swarmers/attackers who could really punch with both hands. And that's a rarity among that breed of fighter. If you're a swarmer, your odds really go up when it comes to the regularity that you can land your finishing punches on your opponents. That said, there have not been many middleweight attackers who could really punch,...

The Last Golden Age of the Heavyweights

With Riddick Bowe’s recent nomination to the International Boxing Hall of Fame, it seems like a perfect time to reassess the extraordinary era in which he fought. Not since the time of Ali, Frazier, and Foreman has there been such a superior group of fighters in the heavyweight division at one time. From the moment Mike Tyson blitzed Michael Spinks in 91 seconds on June 27, 1988 to Lennox Lewis’ very technical knockout of Vitali Klitschko on June 21, 2003, the marquee division in boxing was blessed with extraordinary depth. Even the...

Juan Manuel Marquez MAYBE Next For Robert Guerrero

The grapevine had Amir Khan gloving up with Robert Guerrero, and the Twittersphere seemed to dig that style clash. The grapevine had it wrong though; in fact, Khan will meet ex welter champ Devon Alexander on Dec. 13, in a scrap to be presented on Showtime, which leaves Guerrero looking for a dance partner. I asked Ghost's co-adviser and cornerman Bob Santos what happened to a Khan-Guerrero bout, and what might come next for the fighter who impressed in his last outing, getting a fan-friendly UD12 over Yoshi Kamegai on June 21.
