"The Fight Game" Recap; Quick Mention of Beadlegate, Takedowns of "Super" Fight

HBO ace Jim Lampley trotted out another edition of his "The Fight Game" on Tuesday night, and but of course, the issue of Mayweather-Pacquiao popped up, in several contexts. Lampley gave us a pound for pound top five. Mayweather he mentioned first; then Gennady Golovkin, the high risk hitter came next; then Roman Gonzalez, the flyweight stud, who fights on HBO May 16; then Sergey Kovalev. Vasily Lomachenko, who Lamps called "incomparable" in terms of his skills package, finished the pack. Lampley said tix and hotel prices dropped at...

Golden Boy and Hopkins File Suit Vs. Haymon, His Backers

Laywers inside the pugilistic arena are getting workouts of late. A suit was filed on Tuesday, in federal court, in California, by Golden Boy Promotions. Lawyer Bert Fields heads up a suit on behalf of Golden Boy Promotions and also Bernard Hopkins, alleging that mogul Al Haymon wishes to monopolize pro boxing "and drive out all competition." Haymon, the suit states, has violated the Ali Boxing Reform Act and the Sherman Act, which deals with antitrust issues. The suit calls Haymon "predatory" and "the Rasputin of boxing." I reached out...

De La Hoya: “Canelo Mania Stronger Than Ever"

“Canelo Mania is stronger than ever!” That’s what Oscar De La Hoya told TSS, and all signs point to it being true. Despite losing to Floyd Mayweather by majority decision in September 2013, Alvarez is still nicely positioned as boxing’s next big star after a stoppage win over Alfredo Angulo and a decision triumph over Erislandy Lara last year. Alvarez faces action fighter James Kirkland on Saturday at Minute Maid Park in Houston. The bout will be televised live on HBO. De La Hoya said there was a lot to like about the star of his...

BOXCINO Final Is FNF Finale

ORANGE, Calif. (May 5, 2015) - Junior middleweight Brandon Adams (16-1, 12 KOs) is returning to a familiar situation. After coming up short in last year's Boxcino finals and suffering the only loss of his career, the Los Angeles-native dropped down one weight class and fought his way back to the 10-round championship fight. Adams faces the smooth boxing skills of John Thompson (16-1, 5 KOs) of Newark, New Jersey on Friday, May 22, from the Omega Products Outdoor Arena in Corona, Calif. in the Boxcino 2015 junior middleweight...

JENNINGS & SANTANA GAIN RESPECT WITH FANS NEW JERSEY (May 5, 2015) - After HBO World Championship Boxing had one of their highest rated shows since 2012 with the Klitschko vs. Jennings championship bout on April 25th, Gary Shaw feels his fighters, Bryant Jennings (19-1, 10 KOs) and Francisco Santana (22-4-1, 11 KOs), can make quick comebacks to the big stage.

Floyd Mayweather - Three Strikes and Still Not Out

We’re in this together all the way until our cable bill arrives. One hundred dead presidents to see what was supposed to be the fight to not only put boxing back on the sporting map, but to keep it there as well. It's only a matter of days until we hear just how many pay per view buys were registered to view last Saturday's long awaited matchup between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The fight itself met nowhere near the expectations of well, millions of the paying public. Should last weekend's bout undoubtedly eclipse all previous...

Some Connected The Dots Before Mayweather-Pacquiao

I tried to sound the alarm bell in this space on the inevitable clash between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, at each stage, for literally years. Today everyone is all over the place saying that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was a waste of time and money. Those saying such things are rightly upset because there's a chance Manny Pacquiao 57-6-2 (38) may have gone into the fight with an injured shoulder. They're also mad and disillusioned that the fight wasn't competitive and didn't come close to meeting its expectations. And to those...

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...
