Does Mayweather need to fight Pacquiao for his legacy?

Dan Rafael of ESPN pointed out recently that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KO's) with his fame and fortune will never be able to have a legacy because he's failed to fight Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO's). I'm not sure that a fight against Pacquiao is really needed for Mayweather to cement his legacy. The only thing good that could come out of a Pacquiao-Mayweather fight now is that it would attract [...]

Marcos Maidana could be out in the cold as far as big fight is concerned

Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO's) was hoping to cash in with a big money fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. following his upset victory over Adrien Broner earlier this month on December 14th in San Antonio, Texas. But the chances of Maidana getting a fight against Mayweather are slim at best, and he might not even get a rematch against Broner. It's doubtful that Golden Boy Promotions will let Broner fight [...]

Miguel Cotto: I want to go with [Sergio] Martinez

Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KO's) told the media on Monday in Puerto Rico that he wants to fight WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KO's) next. Cotto is targeting the 38-year-old Sergio because he wants to win his belt and capture his 4th division world title in the process. It's a goal that Cotto has that he wants to try and accomplish. It obviously doesn't hurt that Cotto will get [...]

Schaefer: Pacquiao-Mayweather fight can’t happen unless Pacquiao is a free agent

Floyd Mayweather Jr. said this past week that he won't bother fighting Manny Pacquiao as long as he's still being promoted by Bob Arum of Top Rank. Mayweather simply doesn't want to work with Arum for some reason. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is coming out saying that there won't be a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight until Pacquiao is no longer with Top Rank. This is a pity because if you [...]

Vitali Klitschko Explores The Possibility Of Boxing Again

I believe that most of us had expected to hear Vitali Klitschko announcing his retirement from boxing sometime soon. And exactly this happened, as Vitali’s political agenda and involvement in Ukraine swiftly took a turn, and required an entirety of his time and attention. Not only is Vitali dealing with a vicious wave of protests, but is also trying to win over the people and the majority vote that [...]

Vitali Klitschko is all but retired – where does “Dr. Iron Fist” rank amongst the all-time heavyweight greats?

As fans know, Vitali Klitschko recently vacated his WBC heavyweight title and declared how he “cannot imagine” a ring return “as things stand now.” So, it seems there is a good chance that at age 42, the elder Klitschko brother has fought his last fight in the ring and can now retire from boxing, his contributions to the sport in the history books. And Vitali achieved a lot in his 17-year [...]

Adrien Broner – What to Expect Next?

It's no secret, many fans had their Christmas Wish come early when Adrien "Problem" Broner got his clock cleaned by Marcus Maidana in San Antonio, TX. Maidana fans licked their chops. They saw the cocky little clone of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. getting his comeuppance by finally facing a big puncher. Pre-fight Broner laughed about Maidana being a threat. He wasn't worried. In fact, he was extremely [...]

Richardson thinks Khan doesn’t have to beat Mayweather to come out ahead

Trainer Naazim Richardson isn't giving Amir Khan much of any chance of beating Floyd Mayweather Jr. if he's the one that ends up fighting Mayweather in his next fight on May 3rd in Las Vegas. To Richardson, he feels that Khan will come out ahead just by giving Mayweather problems in the fight. "His [Khan] reputation is so bad," Richardson said to Hustleboss. "He doesn't have to win. He just has [...]

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is going to need to look in another direction for his fighter Manny Pacquiao for his April 12th fight in Las Vegas, because Juan Manuel Marquez has his mind made up about not wanting to fight Pacquiao again.
