At today’s pre-fight press conference, the evergreen champion revealed his pleasure at a perfect training camp heading in to his fifth successive world title defence. ‘’Before my last fight with Krasniqi, I was sick with the flu,’’ said the 36 year-old southpaw. ‘’But this time, I‘ve had...

Rumor Mill Says Tim Bradley Vs. Brandon Rios In the Works

The mill is grinding, once again. We're hearing that Tim Bradley is going to tangle with Brandon Rios, Nov. 7, in Los Angeles. That scrap, featuring members of the Top Rank crew, would be much anticipated, being that Bradley impressed mightily in his last tangle, vs. Jessie Vargas, and Rios, it seems, is dialed into training, doing 5 AM road-work, and but of course has a personality which makes him must see. I presume HBO would televise this pitting off A grade names... I reached out to Bradley, and a Rios contact to verify and didn't...

Diego De La Hoya Challenges Jesus Ruiz For WBC Youth Title

When Diego De La Hoya’s name is mentioned, most knowledgable boxing people agree the youngster is talented. That’s no surprise; as a cousin of 10-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya, he certainly has the bloodlines. Not only that, but the exciting kid from Mexicali, Baja California, has speed, power and stamina to go with a pedigree that can open any door in boxing. After nearly two years as a pro, the 21-year-old De La Hoya (11-0, 7 KOs) faces a stiff test against veteran Jesus Ruiz (34-6-5, 23 KOs) on Friday, at the Belasco Theater...

WOODS: Santa Cruz-Mares Was NOT A Classic In My Eyes

Expectations can be a heckuva thing. How many times have you heard about a blockbuster flick, read up on it, seen tons of Tweets on it, heard friends and neighbors making plans to watch it. You make your plans, brain buzzing, waiting to be blown away...and end the night thinking, Ho hum. That wasn't all that. You grumble some and vow to be more efficient in fending off the noise, in making up your own mind for yourself, in not falling for the hype. The expectations bug bit all associated with #MayPac, and you see the winner of the bout...

AFTERMATH MONDAY: Avila Reflects On Mosley-Mayorga

Our crew began early Saturday morning as we trekked from Riverside, Calif., to Inglewood – a distance of more than 80 miles. We left with the temperature hovering at 105 to the “cooler” climate of 95. Katherine Rodriguez of La Prensa, Jeannie Avila of Uppercutmagazine.com and I loaded up the faded gold Mercedes and headed to our favorite watering hole, El Cholos, in downtown Los Angeles. On a regular basis you can see one or more of us at the restaurant that, I think, has the best margaritas in the world, pound-for-pound. Once in a...

Mayweather’s Main Appeal Now His Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous

Making history by matching Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 record? Forget it. Mere boxing considerations no longer are what drives the public to follow the aptly nicknamed Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26 KOs) as the sport’s most ostentatious cash cow collects another $32 million or so of chump change for cuffing around doomed challenger Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) on Sept. 12 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand. There is no way, of course, that Mayweather can hope to come within Hubble telescope distance of the staggering numbers he posted for...

Santa Cruz' Size And Style Overcome Mares' Aggression

This past Saturday night there was a war in the city of Los Angeles. It wasn't between police and protesters and although the intention was to perhaps hurt and injure the opposing entity, no one was hurt. I'm talking about the 12-round featherweight title bout between Leo Santa Cruz 31-0-1 (17) and Abner Mares 29-2-1 (15). Combined they threw 2037 punches and it seemed as if 2025 of them were with murderous intent. It's been years since there's been a fight on free TV half as great as the Santa Cruz-Mares slug-fest. If the...
