Cotto and Canelo Hit NYC, Talk Up Nov. 21 Clash

Neither man is a hypemaster. They both have that throwback, man's man sort of vibe to them, do Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez. No worries, if you are promoter Oscar De La Hoya or Roc Nation, which helms Cotto, as this bout sells itself, on its own merits. Cotto's lengthy resume and willingness to take on all comers, and Canelo's shorter but also commendable resume and willingness to test himself, and not cherry-pick, and his public stance that he is in that ring to test himself and rep his nation, make Cotto versus Canelo a must see...

King Still Kicking, His Boxer Reps Fri. at D Las Vegas Hotel

It isn't meant as a slam, not at all. But this Don King is like a cockroach. So resilient! Such hardiness!

Here is a release which went out touting King's kid, Trevor Bryan,...

Diego Magdaleno Gets Title Crack Vs. Flanagan

Much, OK most, of the air in the room of boxing has been snapped up by the Golovkin-Lemieux and Cotto-Canelo, and to a lesser degree, Mayweather-Berto fights. But the fistic world keeps on spinning for other hitters, as well. Such as one Terry Flanagan, 28-0, 11 KOs. The 26-year-old Brit defends his WBO lightweight crown on October 10, against 28-year-old Diego Magdaleno, 28-1, 12 KOs. They'll tangle in Manchester Arena. Andy Lee's defense of his 160 crown, against BJ Saunders, tops the bill... There was a conference call on Thursday to...

Mosley-Mayorga Presser Erupts Into Bedlam in L.A.

INGLEWOOD-Ricardo Mayorga: Two words that equate to mayhem in the boxing world.

Inside the hallowed walls of the Inglewood Forum, Shane Mosley and his new company spokesperson and fiancée Trista discovered face to face what Mayorga brings to the table.

Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez Hit L.A.
