I want GGG Cotto more then the rest. But I think he wants the big money Canelo fight first.

Quillin , Jacobs , Taylor will never fight GGG because of tsAH. They are starting a wrestling league or something on NBC I think.

I would love to see GGG vs Kirkland , but Kirkland has a history of being unstable. He pulls out of fights and invokes make believe injuries. He might crack up during training camp. Hopefully he is back with ann wolf full time and he can convince HBO to get on board."




Good point, I would love to see GGG mow down Mora. Fact is I am scare he will literally turn and run to stay away from GGG just to make it 12 rounds.

"I can understand New yorkers wanting GGG vs Cotto.
Its a valid fight.
Cotto shouldn't have beat Martinez if he didn't want his name tossed into the middleweight lottery.

Also there's no such thing as a different league for natural middleweights and blown-up middleweights.
But I can't see Cotto beating Quillin, Jacobs, Arthur Abraham, Steiglitz, N'Dam, or Murray.

He couldn't get past Trout and barely beat Margarito as Margo was gaining momentum toward the end of their second fight.

He won't fight any of those guys anyway because he probably could only get a decent payday against Quillin and Jacobs and those guys are too big, strong and competent.

I think Cotto's move was a one-off so he could add a title to his legacy.
Canelo should be the only fight Cotto takes at a higher weight.

I actually expect him to confirm this in the near future.

I dont think Cotto vs GGG will ever happen."


Perfectly put all around.


Cotto won a MW title so why the complaints that he is a small mw. He has the title period.

Fight and defend it or relinquish it and go down to jr mw.

There are many great fights to be had out there with GGG yet no one has the balls to man him up.

Guerrero is with Haymon and Marquez with Top Rank. Unless one changes positions, this fight is not going to happen unfortunately.

Its a great hypothetical matchup and an absolute pick em fight. But we are probably not going to see it.

I think Guerrero is going to get another Haymon charge next, maybe Roberto Garcia. Guerrero will fight sporadically in very winnable fights until something much bigger presents itself.

As for Marquez, if Rios-Alvarado III happens and Rios wins I see that fight materializing. Or the Bradley rematch could be possible as well."


Not a chance in space or time that Marquez dance with Bradley again -- full of dat, and metamorphosizing into Hulkquez, or as the now old zombie moving-and-fighting Marquez. Holla!

"Phenomenal numbers. That's about the same figure Andre Ward drew against Edwin Rodriguez and a huge increase over his last fight against Daniel Geale.

Of course, TV ratings don't necessarily translate to PPV buys but I do think this is starting to shape up as a viable pay-per-view telecast.

If anything, the fight would draw good numbers. But I say save it for PPV."


These are phenomenal numbers indeed. Golovkin's star is very quickly rising.

I also agree that big HBO numbers won't necessarily mean big PPV numbers just yet either. Golovkin is rising but not yet ready to headline on his own on PPV. But with the right name opponent he would draw very well. The problem, I don't see any of those name opponents stepping in with him yet. He's too big a risk for too little a reward. At least for the first part of 2015 and maybe even the entire year, we are going to continue to see Golovkin in with the solid but overmatched foes.

Martin Murray probably gets the February fight and my guess is afterward Golovkin fights the winner of Korobov-Lee (HBO will make it well well worth the while for either of those two). After that, I think a major push will be made by Golovkin's team and HBO to make a mega fight for late in the year. The question will be will any of the names step up to the plate.

It stands to reason that GGG is picking up in viewership. As climbs his popularity, so will climb the viewership.

I think we all agree the guy is a beast against the likes of Gabe Rosado, Daniel Geale, Curtis Stevens, Marco Antonio Rubio and others like them. The question is, how will he do against the best around? Against either Floyd Mayweather or Andre Ward?

My guess is, $$$May's track record says he will not go near GGG. If he hasn't climbed into the ring against Manny Pacquiao in all these years, there is NO WAY he'll get in against GGG.

That leaves Andre Ward. GGG has said he will fight Ward. He is on the record with that. I'd love to see Ward get back into training, have himself a comeback fight (he has been inactive one year), then face GGG in a PPV spectacular in mid-2015, after GGG has disposed of his rumored next opponent, Martin Murray, in February.

Yes, PPV spectacular. Charge me whatever you want, Cablevision (my local system). I shell out $50 and up for everything else you throw at me. I would gladly pay whatever your asking price wilol be for GGG v Andre Ward.

Just the thought of it is thrilling!

GGG might have a good run. He needs the opportunity to fight for all the belts.Not a huge fan of WK but at least he was able to fight for the belts.He won the IBO,WBO,IBF,WBA belts by fighting. He will probably fight for the WBC once Stiverne-Wilder finally happens.



GGG is the WBC mandatory now so he will get a crack at that title eventually.



GGG would of fought Quillin for his belt,if he didn't duck his mandatory,make excuses and throw his belt in the trash bin.



Taylor has the IBF belt and no way tsAH makes that fight, if he did, Dibella might have to step away with concerns for Jermain's health again.



Danny Jacobs ,who holds the WBA ,would have the guts to fight GGG but tsAH would not let that fight happen ,probably will let Quillin fight for the belt in an all Brooklyn matchup.



TsAH has the WBA and the IBF belts held hostage and he won't let them go unless the public outcry forces it.

"SRL should have NEVER been in that fight. His last fight had been seven years earlier in New York against Terry Norris. After that fight, I walked into Leonard's dressing room. He looked beaten. His eyes were puffy. He looked a lot older than his 35 years.

"That's it, Randy," he said. "I had to take this fight to prove to myself whether or not I still have it. I don't. It's time to move on."

Well, the roar of the crowd was too great to resist. After watching Hector Camacho beat Roberto Duran by decision in June 1996, Leonard remarked that Camacho had been given a very "early Christmas gift." Naturally, Camacho returned the verbal fire, and soon the two were embroiled in a war of words. Leonard would be coming out of retirement.

The bout took place on March 1, 1997. It never should have taken place. In training, Leonard had torn his right calf muscle. He couldn't run. He couldn't jump rope. He could spar. He could barely stand. Yet, he--unwisely--took the fight.

Before coming out of the locker room, he took a novacaine injection into the muscle. Although it dulled the intense pain he was in, he barely could feel his leg underneath him. He fought Camacho on one leg.

Hector Camacho was a heckuva' fighter. On his best day, however, he was never going to beat Sugar Ray Leonard. But a one-legged Sugar Ray was another story.

It was painful for Leonard and it was painful for many to watch. Seeing him lose to Terry Norris was one thing, but hobbling around and stopped while being blasted on the ropes was another.

For the record, the loss was Leonard's third--and last. Following the fight, he retired for good. The loss to Camacho was his third. As far as I am concerned, he lost only twice--once to Norris and once to Roberto Duran. The June 1980 loss to Duran was his only loss while at the top of his game. On that day, Duran was also at the very top of his game. On that day, Duran would have given any welterweight in history a run for his money.

Five months later, when Leonard reversed the table, it was he who would have given any welterweight who ever lived fits.

The Camacho fight? It should never have happened.

Man . . in this day and age.

If anyone is knocking or harshly judging SRL they need to have a good look at themselves and also what's going on in the sport.

SRL was an entertainer, brilliant boxer and one mean son of a witch (if you know what I mean).

The guy was a pure technician with almost all the moves, and anything he may not have had in comparison to Floyd Jr. he made up for in spades with balls and the willingness to fight almost anyone at anytime.

Just the fact(s) that he;

1) Had a stellar amateur career.

2) Fought in the 15 round champion match era

3) Fought Duran (meaningfully; before 1989) twice, with the 1st fight being an excellent display of grit and fighting (regardless of the loss). And the second one going down as one of the most famous rematch ("No Mas") bouts ever for various good reasons, including how tough and in his prime Duran was. The percentages on rematch success are not that flash and Leonard managed to turn it into gold.

4) Beat Duran again in 1989.

5) Fought Hearns a few times; once (for what has become a legendary fight) in 1981 for a TKO in the 14th round. And the second time a largely (by comparison to the 1981 fight) forgotten draw over 12 rounds.

6) Came out of retirement in 1987 (his previous fight was in 1984) and successfully fought Hagler - not at welterweight as his previous bouts had been but - at middleweight. Can you get a tougher comeback assignment? Remember how thoroughly confident Hagler was? I can still recall thinking how big-of-a-challenge such a comeback fight was even for Ray!

7) Then went onto, the year later in 1988, to blow out Donny Lalonde in 9 rounds, for the WBC light heavyweight title (whilst Leonard was still really, at heaviest, a super middleweight). (7 months after Lalonde (in 1989) Ray had the above-mentioned draw with Hearns, then approximately 6 months after that he had the above-mentioned 1989 (and his 3rd) bout with Duran. From there onwards Ray had almost a year off, and as a result of this and other factors he declined, and Terry Norris made that quite obvious in 1991).

8) Came into prominence, in 1979, by beating the great Wilfred Benitez - who was unbeaten and 38-0-1 going in with SRL - over 15 rounds.

9) Set for himself, took, and successfully achieved, challenges that were great - sometimes even monumental - even by critics standards.

Is enough for me.

I don't see anyone in this era, perhaps apart from Floyd (and then we have some issues of, stones, genuine challenges later in his career, and/or matchmaking), Calzaghe, Tszyu, Lennox Lewis, B-Hop and maybe a few others like Toney and Jones, that is anywhere near the same all round quality and ilk, as Sugar Ray Leonard.

That's just my 10c worth.

I would have loved to have seen, if Leonard stayed down at welterweight long enough, Chavez Sr. V Sugar Ray Leonard; both in their prime of course.

One can dream.

For the second consecutive month, Andre Ward hung in at fifth place. He received several first, second and third place votes, but there were ballots where his name was omitted completely. Nicholas Walters, coming off a recent stoppage of Nonito Donaire, appeared among your votes for the first time.



I am going to hold off the next ballot until the end of November. During that month, at least four of the Top-10 fighters will see action (B-Hop, Kovalev, Klitschko and Pacquiao) as well as a few others who received votes (Lomaqchenko and Crawford).
