Alex Ariza Working With Team Rios to Help Prepare Against Pacquiao?

 Alex Ariza Working With Team Rios to Help Prepare Against Pacquiao?Spreading like a spider web, the fresh rumor of Alex Ariza now working with camp Rios is now gaining serious ground. While this information has not yet been officially confirmed, I would not be surprised if it turned out to be so.

Ariza is undoubtedly a fully qualified strength coach for the professional echelon of athletes, and has been in the game for a respectable amount of time. His biggest client on his resume thus far is his former boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao. I think that it would be difficult not to attribute Pacquiao’s success in part to Alex Ariza, and his involvement in helping Manny gain weight and keep the rest of his much needed attributes.

It seemed as though Pacquiao liked Ariza, and had never spoken of Ariza in a negative way. Pacquiao’s head coach Freddie Roach had a very turbulent relationship with Ariza and his decisions, and towards the end of Ariza’s employment with camp Pacquiao, Roach and Ariza were constantly butting heads and badmouthing each other to the media.

Andre Ward picks Mayweather to beat Canelo

 Andre Ward picks Mayweather to beat CaneloWBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward doesn’t see any way for the WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s) to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr/. (44-0, 26 KO’s) this Saturday night other than maybe getting lucky by landing a big shot that knocks out Mayweather. Ward doesn’t think that there’s any possibility that Canelo can out-box the much faster and much better skilled Mayweather Jr. over 12 rounds.

Ward also thinks that the weight that the 170+ Canelo will be taking off to get down to the 152 lb. catch-weight could lead to Canelo running out of gas in the later rounds of the fight. Continue reading

Will Fighting More Often Have An Effect On Mayweather Jr.?

 Will Fighting More Often Have An Effect On Mayweather Jr.?The last time Floyd Mayweather Jr. had fought more than once in one calendar year was in 2007, that makes it 6 years ago. Of course during those days, Floyd was that much younger, and it seemed not only necessary but also effortless for him to do.

Now that Mayweather Jr. has signed a contract with Showtime network promising them a stern minimum, he will once again be stepping into the ring on a more frequent basis.

May 4th, 2013 was Mayweather Jr.’s previous fight, where he stepped inside the ring against Robert Guerrero. He is now getting ready to face the young boxing sensation Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, just a little over 4 months after Floyd’s last fight. Continue reading

Canelo vs. Mayweather: Fight fans can’t “weight” until “Friday the 13th”

 Canelo vs. Mayweather: Fight fans can’t “weight” until “Friday the 13th”This past Friday, September 6th, current WBA/WBC Junior Middleweight Champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez participated in the WBC’s mandatory seven day, pre-fight weigh in and surprised the scrutinizing boxing media by scaling in at an impressive 157.4 pounds.

With only 5.4 pounds left to drop before the big Friday the 13th weigh-in ceremony, which is slated to be held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, at 3PM PST, most speculating fight scribes believe that Canelo will have very little trouble making the negotiated catch weight of 152 pounds.

Former Super Middleweight and Light Heavyweight contender “Iceman” John Scully insists that Canelo’s road to the scale will be anything but easy.

“The week of the fight will be misery for Canelo,” claims the prolific fight trainer. “I’m talking misery. He is going to experience one of the most miserable weeks of his life…that’s a guarantee. Continue reading

Ricky Burns v Ray Beltran – The View from Ringside

Sitting ringside at the Ricky Burns v Raymundo Beltran fight in Glasgow last Saturday, I was never more proud to be associated with the sport of boxing, as a writer, nor more ashamed.

Scotland’s Ricky Burns and Mexico’s Ray Beltran are true warriors, honourable men who are a credit to their respective countries and to a sport which throughout its history has regularly made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The draw that was announced at the end of the fight was not only a travesty, it was a crime. Not only was Ray Beltran denied his just deserts for the endless weeks of hard training, sparring, and sacrifice it took to get himself ready, Ricky Burns was forced to endure the embarrassment of standing in the ring with his hand raised in front of 6000 spectators and the millions watching at home, who all knew he’d lost. As a genuinely decent man, this undoubtedly hurt the WBO lightweight champion, adding to the physical trauma of the broken jaw he sustained early in the fight. Continue reading

Danny Garcia: I’ll make Matthysse pay

 Danny Garcia: Ill make Matthysse pay DANNY GARCIA has dismissed the chances of him being flattened by KO King Lucas Matthysse this weekend.

The cocky American risks his WBA Super and WBC World Light-Welterweight titles against the Argentinean who has knocked out 32 of his 34 victims at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on Saturday.

It’s the chief support to the potential richest match in history between Floyd Mayweather and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and is televised live and exclusive in the UK on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).

Garcia, 25, who has won all 26 professional contests is best known for beating Amir Khan 14 months ago in a big upset. Continue reading

Mayweather’s First Battle With Castillo – The Only Real Blueprint On How To Defeat “Money?”

 Mayweather’s First Battle With Castillo   The Only Real Blueprint On How To Defeat “Money?”Maybe Oscar De La Hoya has got it wrong, and his close (in the opinion of some, not in the opinion of many others) but losing fight with superstar Floyd Mayweather is not the real example of a blueprint on how to defeat the 44-0 master. Maybe – and it’s testament to Floyd’s greatness that we have to clutch at straws in such a way – we have to go back to the night of April of 2002, and Mayweather’s tough, close and gruelling encounter with Mexican warrior Jose Luis Castillo to find anything approaching a genuine blueprint on how to beat him.

It’s certainly interesting that Mexican fighters have given Mayweather his toughest tests (Castillo and Mexican/American De La Hoya being right at the top of the short list) and maybe Saul Canelo Alvarez will have studied both fights in his preparations for “The One,” which is now just days away.
