"Santa Cruz wants the fight. He's ready and eager to willing to glove up with one of the greatest boxers ever to join the pro ranks.

I think Rigo out points him and could possibly win by too.

However I don't believe Cruz would be traumatized by the loss.

Getting out boxed isn't the same as being brutalized by a George Foreman style beatdowm.

I think it would be a very entertaining fight."






I understand where you are coming from, but getting taken to school via unanimous decision can damage the psyche of undefeated young fighter. It doesn't have to be a George Foreman type physical beat down. Rigo took Donaire's fighting spirit in my opinion and he will never be the same. I think he would stop Santa Cruz via TKO because his style is made to order for him. Santa Cruz is a fighter and is supposed to want the fight, but his promotional outfit and management team know better. Santa Cruz is a community college student and Rigo is a Ivy League professor. The youngster would ruin his permanent transcript by failing professor Rigo's course entitled Cuban Boxing 101.

"In response to Mayweather's comments about fans are used to seeing him winning 11, 12 rounds and knocking guys out: You mean us fans are used to seeing you running, ducking, and avoiding getting hit for 12 rounds. I have never seen Mayweather fight toe to toe with anyone except Maidana in their last bout.l remember when Mayweather sneakily cold cocked Victor Ortiz when Ortiz wasn't looking and knocked him out. Is that the knockout he is referring to? Maidana almost finished Mayweather the last time, and l hope he does it this time!!"

You're right He hasn't beat anybody up violently recently but he's a tricky one! Mayweather is one of craftiest out there who doesn't need to beat you up to get the W. He will anticipate Maidanas punches this time around IMO, and it might be a bit more of a dull fight. I hope Maidana makes it a more competitive fight but I don't know how much I buy that he only trained 5 weeks for the last bout. If that is somehow true then I can see him having big confidence boost and comfort but regardless Maidana is as game as they get he will fight tooth and nail(literally) to land that bomb that will burst the Money bank. J'Leons cookie crumble was just the reminder of something that Floyd (I assume) knows more than most...

"Love tested positive for a diuretic (water pill)...he shouldn't have to resort to heavy urination to make 168, at least he looks comfortable at the weight."

Yes that's right - but diuretics also mask other PEDs and PES, and are commonly used in conjunction with them these days.

There's a lot of boxers from TMT that have been busted for diuretics and/or PEDs.

Sorry! But it ain't going to be. Money May will win or draw by a repeat of the last dance. Holla!

He will be back in a single fight or two. He just got caught. As you said, it happens to many -- to most. It comes with the territory. The whuppin' the jive outta one another in the gym will halt with him. Holla!

I was not impressed with Taylor in his latest bout with Karim Mayfield. Like deep mentioned, this guy stays within distance but that's as aggressive as he gets. It's easy for him to say he picked out what Maidana did to be successful in his bout with AB (almost as easy as it is for me to type about it) and can do something similar but that aint nothin' but a bluff. Maidana is an erratic,big cojones out-law type willing to cross paths with lions and no disrespect to Taylor but I just don't see him being cut from the same cloth. IMO, the guys that will trouble AB will be the ones that put him in that "flight or fight" mode. He seemed to fight stunned and in shock when he fought Maidana and MM was able to capitalize on that with the already naturally low out-put, selective puncher AB. I see Broner taking this fight 9-3 and hopefully we see him in with some better competition.

He is from Detroit, where those jokers will eat a sensitive, mental weakling alive. And he left that place because of that. I, too, believe that much of his problem is a mental one. He is not nasty mean. So Medina just bum rushed him, and crushed him like a jelly bean. Holla!

Taylor allowed Algieri free reign to do whatever he wanted and put forth nothing in the way of opposition to prevent the one sided route.
Broner who appears to be rejuvenated and rededicated to sport will use this opportunity to reintroduce himself to the fans and use the win as a springboard to challenge a major player.

Rigo would ruin Santa Cruz like he did Donaire. Golden Boy will never allow that fight to take place anytime in the near future. Wishful thinking Carmine Cas!

After watching Mayweather's fighters limping through last nights TMT card its hard not picture Floyd replicating their failure against a bigger, stronger, more motivated Maidana.



Hagler used to say that a boxer had only so many rights left in his body.

With defense seeming to be the last remaining skill in Floyds once formidable arsenal

I wouldn't be surprised if this fight wasnt the last hurrah.



The opening round will be very interesting.

JLeon Love just beat a tough Mexican named Periban who just barely missed earning a title against Bika a year ago.... and was in a very competitive fight against Rosario.

Just goes to show you how inevitable it is to get tagged....HARD.....in a boxing match.

Its going to happen at some point in a fighters career as standout boxers such as Wlad K and Manny Paquiao can attest.

When your in the ring against a man who works 100 plus hour per week for the sole purpose of hitting his opponent in the face as hard as he possibly can we can expect these type of results.

I commend Mayweather for supporting his fighters but he won't have many more opportunities to light hundred dollar bills on fire with his current crop of fighters.

Its ironic that Floyd had consistently matched Love tough against the likes of Derrick Findley, Rosario and Periban ...only to have him pass those tests but fail against a guy who was supposed to be a walkover.

From the start of the fight it was clear that Love was expending way too much energy by skipping and bounding around the ring as if Medina had a bale hook in one hand and a machete in the other.

He gave his man way too much respect.
his fight-back instincts finally kicked in when his back was against the turnbuckle while he was stuck in a position of limited movement.

BJack also fought a tentative fight in a largely unentertaining bout.
Thank God these guys won't be on the PPV.
Cruz and Bey are much more entertaining fighters to watch.

Floyd is not going to be able to retire from his day job with these slowly developing and possibly regressing prospects.

Which leads me to wonder..... after hearing so much about the training culture at the Mayweather gym....which is effectionately known as the Dog Pound, ......if these guys aren't beating the crap out of each other during the sparring process "Before" the fight.

As good as Mayweather is you just naturally expect his fighters to be a cut above.

Get Ready For Busy Ending for Boxing Year 2014

High Gear for Boxing Boxing actually slipped into a rapidly high gear last week with Austin Trout and company leading a massive 12-bout fight card at Pechanga Casino. It reminded me of Don King’s marathon sessions back in the day when his Las Vegas fight cards would start at 10 a.m. and end around 1 a.m. They would always have four or five world title fights, which would include several European fighters. It was something to watch. By the time it all ended you would be dizzy from watching boxing. But it was memorable. Felix Trinidad...
