"Big Drama Show" Coming May 16, Says Golovkin

Gennady Golovkin promised a "big drama show" on May 16, and said that he expects foe Willie Monroe to be a stern test in a bout which will unfold in LA, and run on HBO. Promoter Tom Loeffler, repping GGG, said fans will enjoy the action May 16, and that will be a contrast from what they received on May 2, on a Tuesday conference call. He said Monroe, from Rochester, NY, will be a test, and that he is a slick lefty. He said that there will be no backlash from MayPac, that fans will appreciate even more the drama show. He said that fans will...

Avila Manifesto: No More Coverage of Al Haymon or Mayweather Fights

I, David A. Avila, am declaring a personal boycott of all boxing events promoted by Mayweather Promotions or Premier Boxing Champions, and any events promoted by Floyd Mayweather or Al Haymon. Greed at the expense of the media seemed to be their ultimate design last Saturday when Mayweather defended his undefeated record against Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Many of the regular boxing media were shut out from attending the fight or covering it inside the arena. Instead, photographers and deadline reporters were forced to...

Floyd Provides, He Does Not Care

“Floyd cares for his children.” This is what someone said to me on social media as a partial defense for the otherwise questionable behavior of Floyd Mayweather outside of the boxing ring. It was an interesting point to make. Inarguably, Floyd’s children will never lack for food, shelter, or clothing. I would never say that Floyd does not love his children or show them affection. I assume he does. But are those things alone enough to say that Floyd truly “cares” for his children? I’m not so sure. Years ago, I watched an HBO...

“MONEY MAY” AND THE PROFITABLE POWER OF HATE

The power of love is a curious thing Make a one man weep, make another man sing Change a hawk to a little white dove More than a feeling, that’s the power of love “The Power of Love,” Huey Lewis, 1983 Lewis, front man for the News, the San Francisco-based rock group that had a string of hits in the 1980s, is correct. The power of love is indeed a curious thing. They say it makes the world go ’round, and those in its thrall know that to be the case, perhaps especially in those instances when their affection is unrequited and the...

Postfight Presser Report: Mayweather Is Boastful, Edgy, Defiant

At the postfight presser, held in the arena, with the principals in the ring, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao talked about their clash at the MGM, and both touched on what comes next for each. Pacman said thanks for coming and that he did his best, "but my best wasn't good enough." The loser, via UD12, said he didn't want to make any alibis because of what he went through in camp. "I thought I won but I have to review it when I go back to my hotel to see what's happening," he said. "I respect Floyd Mayweather, he's fast, he's a good...

The Superfight Without a Heart

The question often asked in the buildup to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was whether this richest of all prizefights could give a boost to boxing’s future by living up to the glories of its past. As May 2 approached, the anticipation reminded many of the 1980s, when the mega-million “superfights” got started with a series of bouts between the so-called Four Kings—Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. Leonard and Hearns fought each other in two cliffhangers eight years apart; Hearns vaporized Duran with a...

AND STILL...Masterful Mayweather Bests Pacquiao Via UD12, In Sub-Classic Scrap

Maybe he's not the best ever, that's debateable, but he is a contemporary master. In the main event of the most important fight since 2002 and the biggest revenue maker of all time, Floyd Mayweather, born in Michigan, nicknamed "Money," drew harsh boos when he walked to the ring with a 47-0 mark. The white hatted Pacman came in with the hopes of nations on his shoulders, and a 57-5-2 mark. But you had to tip your cap to the victor, even if you don't care for his character or the character he plays; his mix of jabs, movement, potshot...

Why Mayweather Will Beat Pacquiao Tonight

It's been said here since Manny Pacquiao devastated Ricky Hatton in two rounds back in May of 2009 that we'll definitely see him and Floyd Mayweather fight before either retires. That happens tonight. It's also been said in this space that the fight will only be made once Mayweather thinks it's the right time for both business reasons and also when the in ring match-up best favors him, which apparently he thinks is tonight. And the thing I've probably harped on most was this: when the fight is over Mayweather will still be undefeated. If...
