Don’t be surprised if Floyd Mayweather comes back in May 2016 to steal the show from the WBC and GGG. It’s my belief that Mayweather, the opportunist will return back to boxing to break the record number of wins #49. Who is the most logical opponent for him to make history against, not only to get win number 50, but to win the WBC middleweight title than from the newly crowned champion Saul Canelo Alvarez. … Read Article
Newly retired former P4P star, Floyd Mayweather, has responded to Oscar De La Hoya’s recent ‘open letter’ that said boxing wouldn’t be missing the self-professed ‘TBE,’ thanks largely to his ‘boring’ style and carefully managed career moves, by saying that he never ducked or dodged anyone in his career, though neither did he promise ‘excitement’ in May’s anticipated clash with Manny Pacquiao either.
Mayweather was also dismissive of much of De La Hoya’s honest and … Read Article
Depending on which way you look at it, Golden Boy CEO and former 6 division titlist, Oscar De La Hoya has played what can be seen as a pair of publicity masterstrokes of late – firstly with his controversial inclusion of female MMA fighter, Ronda Rousey appearing on the [GB owned] Ring magazine cover, and now, with an ‘open letter’ to Floyd Mayweather that has created a similar storm and diverted ‘attention’ back to boxing.… Read Article
Adrien Broner has publicly responded to Floyd Mayweather’s recent comments to fighthype.com about him, saying, ‘There a lotta hate coming from your way, man….and I don’t like it.’
Broner, who was recently upgraded to WBA (sup) 140 lb champion after winning his 4th world title against Khabib Allakhverdiev, released an online video in which he claimed calls to his ‘big bro’ and former mentor have gone unanswered, meaning he had no choice but to go … Read Article
Newly retired former P4P boss, Floyd Mayweather, has publicly shredded ‘lil bro’, Adrien Broner, for derogatory comments the WBA (sup) 140 lb champion made about Mayweather’s promotional arm.
Broner, who has bizarrely been upgraded to super champion status with the WBA after his one sided win over Khabib Allakhverdiev recently, was once considered by many to be heir apparent to Mayweather, with Floyd himself having been extremely vocal in his support of the Ohio native … Read Article
BoxNation today posted the latest investigative report from award-winning journalist Thomas Hauser on its website boxnation.com. The article may be found HERE.
Last month, Hauser rocked the sports world with the revelation that, eighteen days after the 2 May 2015 fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) granted Mayweather a retroactive therapeutic use exemption for a pre-fight IV infusion procedure that’s on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) “Prohibited … Read Article
While Pacquiao’s possible impending retirement is a hot topic in boxing, his next opponent is also of much interest. Since it is assumed that Pacquiao doesn’t have much time left in the sport of boxing, although it is hard to say when he will actually hang em’ up, boxing fans are hopeful for a few good fights.
Recently you witnessed hopefully what was the last fight of Floyd Mayweather Jr’s career. I did not buy it. Time and money are valuable, so I am careful how I spend both. For me Mayweather’s fights have not been worth my money or time for a very long while.
Happy Days might be here again… if he stays retired.
Happy Days because finally the Boxing Press and sports media in general will be forced to … Read Article
After he ‘retired’ from the sport [not for the first time] after last Saturday’s win over Andre Berto, it would be a reasonable assumption to expect that Floyd Mayweather’s WBC and WBA 147 and 154 lb titles would instantly become vacant – but alas, that has proven not to be the case – just yet, at least.
Mayweather stated after the Pacquiao fight in May that he would vacate his belts in order to let … Read Article
