LOS ANGELES (August 27, 2015) - With just days to go until their Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on ESPN showdown, Leo "El Terremoto" Santa Cruz (30-0-1, 17 KOs) and Abner Mares (29-1-1, 15 KOs)faced-off at the final press conference at Club Nokia in Los Angeles Thursday before they enter the ring at STAPLES Center on...
Neither man is a hypemaster.
They both have that throwback, man's man sort of vibe to them, do Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez.
No worries, if you are promoter Oscar De La Hoya or Roc Nation, which helms Cotto, as this bout sells itself, on its own merits.
Cotto's lengthy resume and willingness to take on all comers, and Canelo's shorter but also commendable resume and willingness to test himself, and not cherry-pick, and his public stance that he is in that ring to test himself and rep his nation, make Cotto versus Canelo a must see...
It isn't meant as a slam, not at all. But this Don King is like a cockroach. So resilient! Such hardiness! He's 84, has been prematurely buried time and again...and he's still in the game, still repping a few guys, and still, when you compare and contrast, a potent promoter.
No, it's not his heyday...he's faded and he picks his spots.
But DK, who is now aligned with Al Haymon, has a kid in the ring Friday night, and don't foget, his Amir Imam is now a Showtime favorite.
Here is a release which went out touting King's kid, Trevor Bryan,...
Much, OK most, of the air in the room of boxing has been snapped up by the Golovkin-Lemieux and Cotto-Canelo, and to a lesser degree, Mayweather-Berto fights.
But the fistic world keeps on spinning for other hitters, as well.
Such as one Terry Flanagan, 28-0, 11 KOs. The 26-year-old Brit defends his WBO lightweight crown on October 10, against 28-year-old Diego Magdaleno, 28-1, 12 KOs. They'll tangle in Manchester Arena. Andy Lee's defense of his 160 crown, against BJ Saunders, tops the bill...
There was a conference call on Thursday to...
INGLEWOOD-Ricardo Mayorga: Two words that equate to mayhem in the boxing world.
Whenever the Nicaraguan madcap has agreed to a challenge with a top rated fighter, out pours the shenanigans, wordplay, cutting comments and downright psycho behavior that has made him one of the most colorful prizefighters in the last 50 years.
Inside the hallowed walls of the Inglewood Forum, Shane Mosley and his new company spokesperson and fiancée Trista discovered face to face what Mayorga brings to the table. In a matter of seconds a rather amusing press...
