Roach: Algieri isn’t in Pacquiao’s class

WBO 140 pound champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) came out of nowhere recently when he fought and defeated WBO light welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov by a 12 round decision last June. The loss was a major blow for Provodnikov’s trainer Freddie Roach, because he’s the guy that got Provodnikov for Algieri fight. Roach now finds himself in a situation where he might have another one of [...]

Maidana doubts Mayweather can improve from previous fight

Marcos Maidana (35-4, 32 KOs) isn’t buying what he’s hearing about WBA/WBC Floyd Mayweather Jr (46-0, 26 KOs) improving for their next fight on September 13th by making changes in his game so that he’ll beat Maidana with ease in their fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Maidana thinks Mayweather can change, but he also expects to change and improve so anything Mayweather can do to [...]

Brook defeats Porter; Dirrell beats Bika; Wilder stops Gavern

Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs) defeated IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15 KOs) by a 12 round majority decision to take his IBF 147 pound title at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The final judges scores were 114-114, 117-111, 116-112. In my view, I had Porter winning a comfortable decision. I couldn't more than 2-3 rounds to Brook because he just holding and missing shots all [...]

Garcia destroys Salka; Peterson halts Santana; Jacobs stops Fletcher

(Photo Credit: Amanda Kwok / SHOWTIME) In a Showtime card filled with sickening mismatches in the televised portion of the card, the much bigger, stronger and more talented IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) showed how it's done in crushing the little unranked 2nd tier lightweight that his adviser Al Haymon scheduled for him to fight in Rod Salka (19-4, 3 KOs) in the 2nd [...]

Pacquiao and Algieri will then travel to Shanghai, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York. With this fight, Arum probably should have thought [...]

Arum says Cotto’s next fight likely won’t be HBO PPV

In a sign that WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto will be taking on a lesser fighter in his next fight in December, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says that Cotto’s next fight will likely not be on HBO pay-per-view. Arum notes that the pay-per-view numbers are down across the board among all the top stars in boxing, and he feels that Cotto’s December fight shouldn’t be on PPV. What that means, [...]

WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto’s adviser Gabriel Penagaricano says that a unification fight between Cotto and WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) is just one of the possible options available for Cotto’s next fight in December. However, they have other options that they’re going to explore as well and they’ll make a determination once they decide on which is the [...]

Algieri wants to take advantage of Pacquiao’s age

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) will be nearly 36-years-old when he steps inside the ring to face the younger more mobile Chris Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) on November 22nd in Macao, China. Algieri realizes that he doesn’t have the power to be standing in the pocket to trade with the aging Pacquiao. But Algieri does feel that he can take advantage of Pacquiao’s age and his [...]

Canelo decisions Lara; Mares defeats Oquendo

(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) In a fight that could have gone either way, the more popular Mexican fighter Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KO's) defeated Erislandy Lara (19-2-2, 12 KO's) by a 12 round split decision tonight in a fight that failed to raise the stock for either fighter at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
