(Photo credit: Suzanne Teresa/Premier Boxing Champions) With Saturday’s dominant win over Adrien Broner under his belt, former IBF welterweight ruler Shawn Porter is understandably calling out Floyd Mayweather Junior. Porter – who was too strong for Broner (despite having to weigh-in three-pounds below the welterweight limit as per Broner’s demands) appeared to have things largely his own way until the 12th and final round when Broner put him down with a lead left hook to … Read Article
He enjoys a considerable base of support here in the UK – and top American welterweight Keith Thurman, who boxes Luis Collazo next month on Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN – has spoken out regarding the “Mayweather September Sweepstakes” to suggest that if it is not he who gets the call to face his countryman and P4P star for “Money’s” 49th fight, then British IBF champion Kell Brook is more than deserving of the opportunity.… Read Article
This week saw his first sit down with the media since the Manny Pacquiao fight and Floyd Mayweather Jr has insisted that he is looking forward to his penciled in September 12th date – the final fight of his contract with broadcaster Showtime and 49th pro outing in all – however the future Hall of Famer confirmed via fighthubtv that finding and announcing an opponent is sure to take some time.
Not the news Britain’s … Read Article
(Photo credit: Idris Erba/Mayweather Promotions) I think it’s fair to say that it can be especially difficult to like Adrien Broner at times. Be it disrespecting his opponents in the ring, or exuding detestable arrogance outside of it, the thing that has irked me the most with the Ohioan motor-mouth throughout his precocious career is his seeming insistence on lifting large parts of Floyd Mayweather’s in-ring game and failing to adapt them properly to his … Read Article
With the ironically named “Fight Of The Century” now seemingly a distant memory, and Floyd Mayweather having just conducted his first media sit-down since then, attention has inevitably turned to just who wins the sweepstakes for his “final” fight in September – and obviously, when that subject is broached, one man is never far from proffering himself as the proverbial “lamb to the slaughter” – and that’s Britain’s Amir Khan.
Khan has spoken out to … Read Article
LAS VEGAS (June 17, 2015) – With pound-for pound king and President of Mayweather Promotions Floyd “Money” Mayweather looking on, fighters competing on this weekend’s Premier Boxing Champions cards at MGM Grand, participated in a media workout Wednesday at Mayweather Boxing Club. Mayweather made the most of his time at the gym, staying for nearly two hours to talk with the media, give the fighters insight and advice and sign autographs for fans.… Read Article
Ahead of his fight this weekend against Shawn Porter, as part of Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions, Ohio’s Adrien Broner has revealed that he has been receiving mentoring from “Big Bro” Floyd Mayweather in the gym – something he feels has been instrumental in preparing him for this Saturday’s clash.
In the eyes of many, Broner will always be “Floyd-Lite”, a poor man’s Mayweather, yet “The Problem” seems to believe that mentoring from the future … Read Article
The latest going around on the net is the verbal sparring between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Khazakstan’s own GGG. GGG has said he’s confident of beating Mayweather should they meet September 12, 2015. Mayweather has responded saying that “GGG has never fought a top opponent in his whole career”!
GGG is lobbying to be Mayweather’s opponent for what will likely be the Las Vegan’s last fight of his career. Fan interest will be at an … Read Article
Floyd Mayweather is already trading shots with Gennady Golovkin … telling TMZ Sports the guy’s just running his mouth for a payday — and he’s way out of his league. Golovkin — who’s knocked out his last 20 opponents — told us Mayweather would be his “dream fight” and is 100% certain he’d win if they ever got in the ring together.
Now, Mayweather’s camp is issuing a response … saying, “Everyone in boxing wants … Read Article
It seems as if a new cockier version of Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) has emerged in the last four weeks since his win over Willie Monroe Jr. on May 16th. Gone is the humble, soft spoken Golovkin that never trash talked. The newer Golovkin is now unafraid to let his opponents know what he thinks of them.
In the case of Floyd Mayweather Jr., a fighter that Golovkin badly wants to fight, he sees … Read Article
