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 [...]

Froch showing no interest in Groves rematch

If George Groves (19-1, 15 KO's) is going to get a rematch against IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (32-2, 23 KO's), then it's probably going to take a change of tactics for him to get Froch to start showing interest in giving him a second chance. Froch says he's not interested in fighting Groves again because he's not shown him the proper respect since their controversial fight from [...]
