GGG already is a star, and will be the next super star.

And he will carry the sport in a positive light, like a Good Boy

Maybe not outright staged but obviously pre-arranged. Eating food off his plate??



Symbolic and hilarious at the same time.



There are obvious, dead give-aways here...



For one, any random schmuck doesn't just get to the heavyweight champ of the world -- on multiple occasions, no less! -- unless it has been allowed.



Secondly, the security guy grabbing Briggs couldn't beat up Briggs on his worst day.



I bet Briggs reimbursed the restaurant. "Marketing expense," it will say in his accounting files.



I wouldn't be surprised if they're cool and just messing about.



It has that "South Beach Tow" reality show feel to it.



Which is long overdue anyway. Boxing, arguably, has the craziest characters in sports so reality TV should be a no-brainer.



Put it this way, Pacquiao-Marquez V would shock me more than Banks-Briggs.

Dang! Did you guys see Teddy Atlas on ESPN FNF. He and I are on the trainer about 3g. Three g is aight! But he ain't an ATG yet. And haven't fought the pugs to become one. Holla!

Briggs is in great shape and will sell the fight. If they dragged old corrie Sanders off the golf course and he knocked out WK then Briggs has a chance too.

Years ago I visited my trainer Milton L who trained Briggs at the time and still does.I met up with him at Briggs house and was invited in. Briggs was on the second level loft and wanted to fight me because I didn't introduce myself. After the hostilities and yelling at me he was very nice. He is a genuine nice funny guy. He has power and if he connects he can win.

Gotta give Hopkins credit, 49 and going after a killer, a young killer. The man is an all time great.


Much respect. I am going to head to this one.

No matter what they K bro's put him through you can't stop Briggs. He will just come back for more, not unlike another deluded no hoper who steps into rings all too often just for an *** beating...

"What makes you so certain RG?"

For the same reason that 3g's trainer Abel Sanchez refused to let his charge spar with SOG a couple years ago.The 3g dude was on a tear sparring with every Cali fighter from welterweight to light heavyweight, except for SOG. My crazy almost got some of 3g. But he didn't want to work with a sneaky, stealth-punching southpaw on the day in question. I'll spar with anybody and his attorney at the drop of a hat.

OOPS! I musta' fo'got! I'll spar with ev'ybodee and dey momma except trainer Anne "The Mermaid" Wolfe. I ain't trying to take that arse whuppin,' or what she say she will do to me after the whuppin.' If it weren't for The Mermaid I'd be Charlie Z-like in reverse. Showing up to gyms for the test and conquest. Hehehe!

Man, many in the pug circuit know what time it is with 3g. He's good as heck. But certain types will cause him a major wreck. Team 3g and HBO are like Bo. Bo knows perfect promotions and optical illusions. OPs are everywhere. Holla!

Murat hit Hopkins a lot more than expected. Steve smoger did a terrible job that night . If kovalev lands anywhere like Murat did the Hopkins loses . If Hopkins wins Philly should have a parade . John David got knocked out by Hopkins , he might have a plan. I see an even fight . I also see Hopkins using every psychological trick before the fight. He is going to say some nasty things .

If John David Jackson is crazy enough to let his charge dance with the "Alien," so be evaporated. Holla!

LOL no way. The only one who's going to be "flatton" is you from the Zzz of seeing Hopkins lull yet another boogeyman into his low-punch output trance.

I think this is a great fight. I rather see Kovelev vs Hokpins. Oscar stepped up, Main Events stepped up. Hopkins will return to HBO which means that Golden Boy Productions is back at HBO. HBO cut ties with Golden Boy due to the Swiss banker and some adviser. This fight is good for boxing. Stevenson backed out of his fight after he made a deal so he is on the outside looking on the inside.

"Power to Haymon, he made himself the power broker he is!. If anybody here ( barclay and Cinci) looks bad it will be Oscar and not Haymon. fans want to see the best match-ups possible from a fan point of View. Just saying what if the rating don't do so good, which will reflect in future purses, Does Haymon budge at the request of the promoter and match the fighter with stiffer competition on paper?. You know there is no easy fight out there for these boxers. Whach you think?"

The promoters and networks are the ones who decide, ultimately. All managers want a card like that one.

Three of your guys fighting relatively safe fights for decent money?? Come on. They would all love to have that.

I'm sure if the ratings don't show it, they'll be forced to show something better. I probably won't watch the card but I'm going to reserve judgment on the matchmaking until we see how the fights play out.

"The backlash would be misguided, though. Don't blame the manager, blame the promoter. You know that, bro.

The manager is just doing his job. Every single manager in boxing would do the absolute same thing he's doing and they wish that they could.

Cameron Dunkin, for instance, vows to never match his guys, which is smart. Haymon is proposing certain fights but it's up to the promoter to say no.

If he says yes, he's the one to blame, essentially."

Mattyhsse Ortiz will be the fight of the card. Ortiz is in good shape and will come and meet Matthysse. After what Molina did he will find some heart and take it to the presumed aggressor I hope.

As for Broner, well now that Taylor beat Mayfield and he lost to the newly crowned 140 belt-warmer Algieri, on paper at least he looks like a relatively strong opponent. I hope Broner's lack of work rate finds him on the wrong end of a decision though, but if Broner steps it up he should beat Emmanuel..

Broner Berto coming up in the future?

"I hear you deep, kind of seems as Haymon is flexing his muscle towards Oscar, there gotta be some mistrust between Oscar and Haymon! The fans need to be reaching a boiling point were the they will backlash toward Haymon. we want to see good boxing matches. For the record We were contacted by the Haymon team, but were advise before hand not to communicate with them. These are two lousy cards At barclay and Now Cinci. have the trademarks of Haymon, with Oscars face disagreeing behind the curtain."



I think you are right. Oscar has to act like a professional and have some of these cream puff cards happen while he fixes everything at his company. The Showtime boss and Haymon allow these match ups, so Oscar has to go along with it for the time being.



Broner already had an easy fight last time out against Molina(And did not look impressive) who never even fought at the weight. Now he is getting another easy one.



How does Andre Berto vs TBA get a TV spot at this point in time? He should be at the Buffalo Run Casino in Oklahoma off TV .

"I will be going to the Hopkins vs Kovalev fight. This might be the perfect time to implement the new "Sweet Science Prize".

A press laminate to go backstage and ringside.

Just kidding but will accept said prize if it ever does exist."


Hahaha that sounds like a good gig, Hopkins is an exemplrary human being and fighter. Toledo needs to write a biography on the great pugilist entitled Man of War. Even if he loses, which I don't necessarily think that he will but note that one punch from the Russian can send your through a mile of treacle, he will be remembered as someone who strove toward glory, no glory was great enough and he always wanted more. That's a class fighter for me.

"At the informal press conference last Saturday, I noticed that challenger Blake Caparello looked almost frail in comparison to Kovalev.



Caparello is not known for being a big walloper. He has six KO's among his 19 victories. I just don't see his pesky jab being able to keep the Krusher at bay.



Chalk up another KO victory for Krusher Kovalev.



Hopefully, the KJrusher will get to face B-Hop next.



After tomorrow's fight, start getting your PxP ratings together. Will Krusher make it into the Top 10?



-Randy G"




Heck no! He ain't that good.



As for him fighting the thought of Golovkin or what have you, 3K is not thinking about Golovkin AT ALL!



And good for him that he's not. Because if he does, he'll start having flashbacks to his Big Bear California thrashings that ran him to the refuge of the Sunshine State where he's safe.



This guy may hit hard but his psyche isn't as rock hard. And now he wants to face the one guy who exploits even the smallest windows of self-doubt?!



His handlers better be careful. We could have a dot-com bubble like implosion here where the principals are stuck with a useless asset in the wake of the crash -- a crash called "Alien Conspiracy."



If he doesn't win, his days as a top-level fighter will be over. Because he will not recover, mentally.

Jessie Vargas Makes First World Title Defense

It was a horrible year for the economy in 2008 with hedge funds and other get rich quick schemes nearly taking down America's financial apparatus. At nearly the same time a kid from Las Vegas named Jessie Vargas emerged from the financial rubble and was making his Southern California professional debut against a 30-year-old from Nebraska. From the moment the first bell rang you could see something special. It was obvious that Vargas (24-0, 9 Kos) would win a world title and now he's making his first defense of the WBA junior welterweight...

Can Golovkin Be a Superstar?

Gennady Golovkin is the best pound-for-pound puncher in boxing and he's officially too strong for his own good. From a power and precision standpoint, he layers body blows underneath head shots and disguises both with feints and shifty footwork like a well-engineered cyborg. When he finishes guys off, he grins to his corner and shrugs, as if to say, “I guess that’s all.” Is this guy for real? Distilled from a Mike Tyson or Wilfredo Gomez vintage, he's now 30-0 with 17 straight stoppage victories, but we're still waiting for the...

Is Sergey Kovalev the next GGG?

The boxing world was all aglow this week in the aftermath of WBA middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin’s three-round demolition of Daniel Geale. The undefeated crowd-pleaser received some of his biggest props from some of boxing’s biggest names. Calling the action from ringside, HBO’s Max Kellerman compared Golovkin to Joe Louis on Saturday night. Sportscaster and president of the Las Vegas Boxing Hall of Fame Rich Marotta said via Twitter he thought Golovkin was the “hardest punching” middleweight ever. Thomas Hauser opined...

Sergey Kovalev Will Have More Than Blake Caparello On His Mind August 2nd

When WBO light heavyweight title hold Sergey Kovalev 24-0-1 (22) defends his title this Saturday night in Atlantic City against Blake Caparello 19-0-1 (6), he'll be fighting two opponents at the same time. In the ring he'll be looking to take Caparello out as quickly as possible, and in the eyes of boxing fans, his performance will be compared to middleweight Gennady Golovkin's signature win last weekend, when he stopped challenger Daniel Geale in the third round. Kovalev, like Golovkin, has an impressive knockout record and can really...
