Pacquiao won’t get Mayweather fight until he changes promoters, says Showtime’s Espinoza

Hunter selling Khan as good option for Mayweather due to his recuperative powers

Amir Khan's trainer Virgil Hunter doesn't see anything wrong with Khan's ability to take hard shots at all. In fact, he credits him with the ability to get up from shots that would put other fights down and unable to get up from the knockdown. For this reason, Hunter thinks that Khan is a very good option for Floyd Mayweather Jr's next fight on May 3rd. Hunter thinks Khan will get up from pretty much [...]

No to any Mayweather opponent but Manny Pacquiao

The issue is no longer between Pacquiao and Mayweather or between Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions. It has come to a point that the “unbeaten” boxer has to contend with the entire boxing world excluding puppets. There’s not much problem with a boxer avoiding another boxer. But for a boxer to belittle the boxer he avoids and fears, malign and mock him with a litany of unfounded accusations, [...]

Manny’s Always On My Mind: Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Obsession with Manny Pacquiao

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s auxiliary goal in the sport of boxing, for over four years now, seems to have been to tear down the image of Manny Pacquiao in any way he can. Floyd can't and/or won't do it in the ring so he does it outside of the ring with racial and ethnic slurs, mocking insults, false and damaging accusations, and various other attempted belittlements. A mission of sorts, clearly Manny [...]

Maidana would be tough fight for Mayweather, says Sergio Martinez

If Marcos Maidana ends up being the one that faces Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his next pay-per-view bout on Showtime on May 3rd, Sergio Martinez sees Mayweather as having problems in trying to beat him. Sergio, a tough fighter from Argentina, thinks Maidana won't be an easy out for Mayweather if he chooses to face him. Mayweather hasn't revealed whether he'll face Maidana or an arguably weaker test [...]

Height of ignominy if Mayweather chosen fighter of the year

Toughness of mind and skill in facing toughest oppositions are equal to gallantry. It is the virtue most supreme and compatible to boxing as a combat sport. Thus beyond ring performances, gallantry should be topmost as criteria in choosing the Fighter (not “Fighter”) of the Year award. How can a boxer who avoids toughest oppositions ever be thought of being “so good” to be considered Fighter [...]

Mayweather: Broner’s loss made him more famous

Floyd Mayweather Jr. wants to rebuild little Mayweather [Adrien Broner] by keeping him away from Marcos Maidana, by moving him down to 140, and having him fight on his next pay-per-view card on May 3rd. Mayweather thinks Broner can be brought back to his former status as one of boxing's youngest up and coming stars, but he feels that he needs to be in the right weight class. If Broner can win a world [...]
