(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) It could be said that the form book will very much be obeyed on Saturday night in Las Vegas, that the expected fighters will emerge victorious and that all fight fans who pointed out the obvious before it went down will be made to look like know-it-alls as a result. Indeed, most people think Floyd Mayweather will out-point Canelo Alvarez, that Lucas Matthysse will have too much power for Danny Garcia and that there will, by and large, be no shocks inside a buzzing MGM Grand.
Still, as great a night as September 14th promises to be, it would be amiss not to write a pre-fight predictions piece – and there is the intriguing undercard action to look at (arguably the two toughest bouts to call being Ishe Smith-Carlos Molina and Ashley Theophane-Pablo Cano).

Mayweather said: “Mayweather Promotions is coming to the UK for my fans at the end of the year. Continue reading →
“He ain’t gonna do shit! He ain’t gonna do shit! And his trainer ain’t gonna do shit…get the F out of here…Vegas don’t know nothing. The world don’t know nothing. Only I know everything,” stated world-class trainer Angel Garcia, who erupted on Lucas Matthyssee and his fans, letting them know that come Saturday, his son, unified jr. welterweight champion Danny Garcia, will be victorious.
Garcia (26-0, 20 KO’s) will defend his WBC, WBA Super and Ring Magazine Super Lightweight World Titles against WBC Interim Super Lightweight World Champion Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) in the 12-round co-featured bout of “THE ONE” MAYWEATHER VS.

THE ONE Fight Week: Fighter Grand Arrivals
Fight week for The One is finally here!
2013 has been a really good year for boxing. The boxing world has seen Fight of the Year candidates, upsets and stellar performances.

As fight fans and enthusiasts, we don’t have to wait until the end of the year. The must-see show of the year is happening in less than a week: The One.
Earlier this Tuesday, the MGM Grand’s lobby was packed with fans and the media to commence the week’s festivities for the year’s biggest boxing event. All of the fighters from the televised Showtime PPV event made their grand welcoming in front of screaming and passionate fans. Continue reading →

Los Angeles (September 10) – Canelo Alvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is the ring and mine in treatment.
I will not be at the fight this Saturday to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself into a treatment facility. Continue reading →
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.

All of us are deeply saddened and shocked by the loss of our very close friend and colleague, Dean Powell. Dean was a valued and popular member of our team and within the sport of boxing and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones for their tragic loss.
WBA 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 →
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 →
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 →
“Steamin” Josh Beeman defeated Carlos “The Dragon” Candelario, Jr. by a majority decision in their four round light welterweight fight by two scorecards of 38-37 and one scorecard of 38-38. This fight was a tale of two halves with Candelario, Jr. dominating the first two rounds, attacking the body well, backing up Beeman and Beeman having trouble landing his punches. Continue reading →
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 →
