Manny Pacquiao: “I’m not a has been, I can still win fights!”

 Manny Pacquiao: “I’m not a has been, I can still win fights!”It has been a while since Manny Pacquiao said anything of substance, or really anything at all. For some time now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been doing all the talking when it comes to Manny Pacquiao, recently stating:

“Pacquiao’s a has-been, his career is over; (but Juan) Manuel Marquez is a legend (and I commend him).”

Finally, Manny Pacquiao had something to say in response to Floyd’s rant, in defense of his boxing career and abilities in the ring: Continue reading

Huck has unfinished business with Arslan

 Huck has unfinished business with ArslanThere is some unfinished business between Marco Huck (36-2-1, 25 KOs) and Firat Arslan (33-6-2, 21 KOs). On November 3 of last year the two fighters squared off at the Gerry Weber Stadion in Halle/Westphalia, Germany, for the WBO Cruiserweight World Championship. Back then Huck won a close decision on points. However, Arslan saw himself ahead after the full twelve rounds.

“In our mind, this battle is a question of honor,” said Chris Meyer, Managing Director of Sauerland Event during Thursday’s press conference. “Both boxers saw themselves as the winner. But there is an easy way to end this debate, a rematch. That way Huck as well as Arslan now have the opportunity to prove who deserves to be called world champion.” Continue reading

Malik Scott: Chisora’s a salesman

Unbeaten American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) sees British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) as mainly a marketing fighter that is best as selling his fights rather than in performing in them. Scott notes that Chisora was able to get a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko with only 17 fights under his belt last year. Scott and Chisora will be fighting this Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London, UK.

Scott said to BoxNation “He’s [Chisora] a salesman. It’s all calculated. He knows what he’s doing. It’s worked for him. I don’t know anybody that had 16 fights and was fighting for the Championship of the World. When you’re in with me you’re dealing with a lot of different attributes. We know about what he’s coming with. He’s coming right at me. I’m going to be setting traps and I’m going to be tagging him…if Dereck wants to f*** all his money up and act stupid, it’s on him. F*** his antics!” Continue reading

Video: Adrien Broner Flushed Money Down The Toilet

Is it just me, or is Adrien Broner swiftly descending into the career abyss. If you have not yet seen the following video, please take a look and witness Adrien Broner using the restroom and then “wiping” and flushing money down the toilet.

Of course flushing money down the toilet makes more sense than donating it or using it to help others who actually need it to survive, at least to Broner it does. It is pretty pathetic how he is trying to not only mimic Mayweather Jr. but to do crazier and more absurd things in order to grab attention and portray himself as a very rich cocky champion.

After his lackluster performance against Paulie, the last thing Broner should be doing is trying to create hype and become the character that he will be unable to sustain. Continue reading
