Georgie Benton Lives On In John David Jackson, And Chris Algieri

They don't make em like they used to, the boxers, or the trainers. You've heard that before, right? These guys, they don't have the same heart, the same stiff constitution, of those guys from the days of yore. And the trainers…where have all the teachers gone…too many bucket holders masquerading as teachers today, the grumbling tells you. There may be more than a grain of truth in each argument; severe poverty and economic insecurity bred many a hungry fighter in decades past, and as more and more nations become developed, it could be...

Co-Pugilistic Pride of Costa Rica, Bryan Vasquez, Seeks Title Friday

Not a boxing hot-bed, Costa Rica. Actually, sort of an under-appreciated region, I'd say. How often do us lunkheads mistake it for Puerto Rico, does it get called an island, are people unable to locate it on a map? Well, the map thing will get a tiny tick better should the top (male) fighter from CR, Bryan Vasquez, impress on Friday night, and get the better of Dominican power-puncher Javier Fortuna, in Brooklyn, and on SPIKE…. The 34-1 (18 KOs) Vasquez, a 27-year-old hitter who is married to the 14-1-1 professional Hannah Gabriel, the...

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...
