Mayweather-McGregor: “The Sting”

Mayweather-McGregor: “The Sting”

Floyd Mayweather is one of a kind and I don't mean as a fighter. Starting the night of February 25th 1964, when I saw Cassius Clay for the first time in my life on the 6:00 PM news, two-months shy of my 6th birthday, I've been obsessed with the sport of boxing and have adamantly followed it from every aspect.

Vinnie Curto vs. Roger Phillips: Our Tale Begins With This Tawdry Mismatch

Ward Was Better Prepared for the Rematch and Erased All Doubts

When the "boxer" beats the "puncher" the first time they fight - the rematch is usually a repeat of the first fight. When light heavyweight champ Andre Ward 32-0 (16) won a disputed unanimous decision over Sergey Kovalev 30-2-1 (26), the man he dethroned for the title last November, he had to get up off the canvas from a 2nd round knockdown. H...
