More than just a few fans might respond to “pick one” by answering, “Do I have to?” Garcia is the heavy favorite, but so what! Both men have failed to please fans. In most cases it’s not a matter of what they did. Rather, it’s what they haven’t done. The match-up certainly wasn’t made in heaven, but it’s a sure bet the winner will look upward while thanking Al Haymon.
What’s at stake? The Premier … Read Article
The best compliments concerning Sergey “The Krusher” Kovalev come from a very knowledgeable source. A fighter could not ask for a more creditable person. It’s none other than Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins. The boxing hall of fame just wishes he would retire so they can induct him into a place of honor. He’s fought them all, done it all, and knows it all. When he speaks we listen, even if he sometimes rambles and gets … Read Article
Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley Jr., 32-1-1 (12KO) the favorite, did what was expected. He pounded out a unanimous decision over the until then unbeaten Jessie Vargas 26-1-0 (9KO).

Neither man is a big puncher, so neither man was in serious trouble until the last … Read Article

Punching power is one thing. Destructive power is another. The heavy handed type is devastating, brutal, and ruinous. That is an apt description of WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatitio” Gonzalez 43-0-0 (37KO) and WBA and WBC interim middleweight champion Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin 32-0-0 (32KO). They continued to demonstrate as much in front of a full house at the Forum in Inglewood, CA. A full house saw Chocolatito destroy Edgar Sosa 51-8-0 (30KO) inside of … Read Article
Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Jr. should be feeling like he is on top of the world, celebrating what some thought would be the biggest win of his career, a unanimous decision over Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao at the MGM, Las Vegas on May 2nd. There would be no more irritating questions like, when will you fight Manny? Why won’t you fight Manny? His big win should have brought an end to the pestering, but it has not. … Read Article
