Lomachenko Outclasses Foe on #MayPac Undercard; PLus, LSC Wins

In the TV opener on PPV, Vasyl Lomachenko, the guy who went 396-1 as an amateur, took on Gamalier Rodriguez, with the WBO featherweight title held by Loma up for grabs. Vasyl was the superior man all the way through, and ended the affair in round nine. Down went the underdog from the force of two right hooks. Fifty seconds elapsed and the ref reached the count of ten. He coulda done twenty, as Gammy was no longer game. Rod is from Puerto Rico, while Loma, who many see as the man come two or three years, is from Ukraine. In the first, the...

When Bob Arum Did That Deal With Frank Sinatra

Bob Arum has been around awhile. 83 years, with 50 plus of them spent making deals, and most of those coming in boxing. We were in the media tent yesterday and "Elvis" walked by. Had a smoking woman on his arm, looked like Linda Thompson. Not sure if she knew Elvis is dead... I wondered if Bob liked Elvis. Nah, more of a Frank guy, he said. Did he hang with Frank? In fact, he said, he put together a promotion featuring Frank and fighters. Sol Kerzner, his pal, built Sun City in S. Africa, and Bob knew him and Mickey Rudin, Frank's lawyer....

UPDATE: CNN's Rachel Nichols offered a statement regarding the drama surrounding the credentials. Here it is: "After asking tough questions of Floyd Mayweather on my program, I was not offered press credentials to cover tonight's fight. In an email dated April 23, I was told I would only be credentialed for the run-up events through the week, but in bold, italic letters the email stated "you do not have any access Saturday to any services or events." A CNN producer revisited the issue with the Mayweather camp on April 29,...

Laila Ali Calls Mayweather "A Little Boy" and "Broken Person"

The knives are out, right before the big one becomes reality, and Floyd Mayweather gets it on with Manny Pacquiao. Are tempers short because people are so jazzed, not getting enough sleep? Not sure...but Wednesday it was Mike Tyson telling UCN Live he thinks Mayweather is "delusional" and "scared," and now it's the daughter of the Greatest, Laila Ali, weighing in. She went on CBS to talk about the fight, and said that she sees her father as being a helluva man, and Floyd doesn't measure up. But, she noted, that's his right to believe that...

Carlos Molina and Mercito Gesta Fight to a Draw at Fantasy Springs Casino

INDIO, Ca.-Former world title challengers Mercito Gesta and Carlos Molina may have been fighting for their promotional lives on Thursday and gave the fans a thrill despite ending in a draw. A crowd at Fantasy Springs saw Molina (17-2-2, 7 Kos) and Gesta (28-1-2, 16 Kos) use every skill in their vast repertoire to find a way toward victory in their junior welterweight match. But after 10 rounds it was apparent they were evenly matched. Molina jumped out ahead with the very first punch thrown---a left hook he fired when Gesta attempted to...

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...

Billion Dollar Daddy

At the long-awaited first official press conference to announce one of the most anticipated fights in boxing history, a dark figure emerges from the back of the stage to photobomb the customary final group picture of the main protagonists. He sneaks into the frame almost unnoticed, seeking the unearned attention of photographers, media and fans, smiling casually as he inserts himself in the moment while everyone asks what did he actually do to deserve that spot in a scene in which he hardly belongs. We’re obviously talking about the...
