Robert Garcia, the trainer for WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO’s), believes Maidana’s going to be soon getting the big $20 million paydays for each fight once he beats Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KO’s) in their mega fight next month on May 3rd in Las Vegas, Nevada. Garcia sees a win for Maidana not only bringing him to the $20 million stage of his career, but also making him a bigger star than Manny Pacquiao.
“If he [Maidana] beats Mayweather, he’ll be huge, bigger than Manny Pacquiao. That’s where the $20 million paydays for Chino [Maidana] come,” Garcia said to esnewsreporting. Continue reading →
Stiff Jab 2013 prospect of the year Mike “Yes Indeed” Reed looks to continue his campaign in the junior welterweight division when he headlines the April 18th card at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington, MD. Reed is a local fighter hailing from Waldorf, MD. His record currently stands at (8-0,5KOs). I had a chance to catch up with Reed to ask him how things were going in his boxing career.

Manny Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38 KO’s) full expects that he’ll need to go after WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley (31-0, 12 KO’s) this Saturday night on April 12th in their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. After watching Bradley defeat Juan Manuel Marquez last October, Pacquiao realizes that he’s going to need to really go after Bradley if he’s to get him to exchange with him.
Bradley isn’t going to fight the same kind of fight that he did against Ruslan Provodnikov. That was one-time type of fight for Bradley, and he realized afterwards that he cannot fight that same way again if he wants to keep from getting knocked out cold. Continue reading →

— Enzo Maccarinelli (@theRealEnzoMac) April 6, 2014
Having failed to capture Jurgen Braehmer’s WBA World light heavyweight title last Saturday night, Enzo Maccarinelli (38-7, 30 KO’s) would like nothing better than to get a second shot at Braehmer’s title if he’s willing to let him. Maccarinelli suffered an eye injury last night early in the fight that eventually led to the bout being stopped before the start of the 6th. Continue reading →
Photo by Michael Boykin Sr. – Pochiro Boxing and Right Hook Promotions presented an exciting fight card with “Throw Down at Sam’s Town II” Friday night. It was no secret who the crowd favorite was, Jesus “Chuy” Gutierrez hands down. Fans booed Moris Rodriguez coming into the ring. Chuy walked in to a parade of wild fans and his camp waving the Right Hook Promotions banner loud and proud, his confidence was through the roof.
The first few rounds were interesting, Chuy hung on the ropes letting Moris tire himself out. Coming to the end of the second round Chuy knocked Moris’ mouthpiece clearly outside the ring and worked him over until he was saved by the bell. Chuy dominated the fight with his left, literally knocking the smile off Moris face, even almost knocking his braids on his head loose. Moris took as many blows Chuy could give but he returned his own combinations that let everyone know that Chuy was not going to win by luck or ease. Continue reading →
Former two-time WBO super featherweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez has dropped out of his co-feature bout against lightweight contender Raymundo Beltran for this Saturday’s HBO pay-per-view card headlined by Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Martinez is ill, and there’s no way he can take the fight under those conditions.
So instead of Martinez fighting Beltran, another super featherweight, Arash Usmanee (20-1-1, 10 KO’s), has been substituted in Martinez’s place for the co-feature. It’s unclear why Top Rank is matching Beltran against super featherweights instead of fighters from the lightweight division, but I guess the boxing fans paying to see the card on PPV won’t know and won’t care. Roman Martinez is a super featherweight as well, and he was coming off of a knockout loss to Mikey Garcia. Continue reading →
Following Carl Frampton’s 2nd round TKO win over Hugo Cazares (40-8-2, 27 KO’s) last Friday night in their WBC 122lb eliminator bout, Gary Hyde, the manager for WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux, took the opportunity to give unbeaten contender Frampton (18-0, 13 KO’s) an offer to fight for Rigondeaux’s two titles next. He even offered to bring the Cuban star over to Belfast, Northern Ireland to face Frampton in his own neck of the woods in front of his own Irish fans.
As good as that fight would be, Frampton said he’s not interested in it at the present time. He wants to fight WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz next, and he wants that fight to take place in Belfast. Continue reading →
Former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (38-7, 30 KO’s) put in a game performance in losing to WBA World light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (43-2, 32 KO’s) by a 6th round TKO tonight at the Stadthalle, Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The fight was stopped due to swelling to Maccarinelli’s right eye after the 5th round. Maccarinelli’e eye had swelled up completely to where he couldn’t see out of it after the 1st round.
Maccarinelli complained that he couldn’t see out of it following the 2nd. But surprisingly, Maccarinelly fought well in the 4th and 5th rounds, and he landed some really nice shots to control both of those rounds. Braehmer was doing a lot of holding in between landing his punches, and just waiting until the fight was halted. Braehmer didn’t have the power to stand in and trade with Maccarinelli once he started swinging for the fences in the 4th, so he played it safe with constant clinching. Continue reading →
Former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli (38-6, 30 KO’s) is counting on his power advantage to bail him out tonight in his title challenge against new WBA World light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (42-2, 31 KO’s) at the Stadthalle, Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.
Maccarinelli, 33, has certainly picked out the perfect champion for him to beat, as Braehmer is considered a paper champion by a lot of fans, and someone who has got through an entire career without really facing anyone good. It’s been a career of careful match-making that has gotten Braehmer to this point, and it’s quite possible he could lose if Maccarinelli can land his big power shots. Continue reading →
Trainer Freddie Roach doesn’t see a Top Rank – Golden Boy Promotions issue as getting in the way of a potential huge money matchup between Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan in the near future. Roach, who previously trained Khan, says he makes his own decisions about his career, and he thinks that a fight between him and Pacquiao is a definite possibility. Of course, none of this will mean anything if Pacquiao doesn’t win his next fight against WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley on April 12th, and if Khan doesn’t beat Luis Collazo in their fight on May 3rd.
“Khan’s responsible for his own actions,” Roach said to the Telegraph. “Never say never. I’m not so sure it would be in England, even though Manny loves the place. He would want a truck load of money to fight there. It would most likely be in the U.S, if it ever happened.” Continue reading →
Photos by Rich Graessle and Larry Levanti/Main Events — hiladelphia, PA: Steve “USS” Cunningham (27-6, 12 KOs)* took down the undefeated powerhouse Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (20-1, 15 KOs) via unanimous decision at the Liacouras Center. In the all-Philly main event, Philadelphia-raised Cunningham and Philadelphia-trained Mansour brawled for ten rounds of heart-stopping action that had the entire crowd at the Liacouras Center on their feet and screaming for more. These two warriors just kept coming at each other for ten straight rounds. By the end they were both bleeding and and battle-worn.
Mansour was relentless from the first bell. He kept coming at Steve with huge looping hooks. Cunningham began bleeding in the second round. Then Cunningham cut Mansour over the same eye in the third. Continue reading →
photo by Tom Casino – Tonight at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA, Gary Shaw Productions middleweight contender Tureano Johnson (14-1, 10 KOs), was robbed of his opportunity to continue fighting with Curtis Stevens (27-4, 20 KOs) when referee Gary Rosato prematurely stopped the bout at the 2:09 mark of the tenth and final round.
Johnson, who controlled the action early on, got off to a great start and mounted a considerable lead against Stevens’s midway through the bout. As the fight entered the final rounds, Johnson continued to stand his ground and win rounds as both fighters were going toe to toe. Entering the tenth and final round, Stevens, who was clearly down on the scorecards, landed a nice left hook that slowed Johnson down, and the referee halted the bout prematurely. Tureano Johnson was clearly ahead on the scorecards and had plenty of life left to finish the bout before the referee stopped the action. When the bout was stopped, boos from the crowed were heard throughout the arena, validating a premature stoppage. Continue reading →
Photo: Rich Graessle/Main Events — The more experienced Steve Cunningham (27-6, 12 KO’s) survived two fifth round knockdowns to go on and beat USBA heavyweight champion Amir Mansour (20-1, 15 KO’s) by a 10 round unanimous decision tonight to win by the scores 97-90, 95-92, 95-92 at the Liacouras Center, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Cunningham put Mansour down on the canvas in the 10th and final round with a right hand after getting him off balance from a series of rights to the head. Mansour’s left eye was almost closed at the time from the heavy shots he’d absorbed from Cunningham. Continue reading →
An unusually timid-looking 35-year-old Hugo Fidel Cazares (40-8-2, 27 KO’s) was blasted out in just two round tonight by a much younger 27-year-old Carl Frampton (18-0, 13 KO’s) in a World Boxing Council 122lb title eliminator at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. The fight ended suddenly when Frampton hit Cazares with a solid left hook that sent him staggering to one knee.
Cazares then lost track of the count and failed to get up after the referee counted him out. Instead of watching the referee while he was counting, Cazares took his eyes off of him and was grinning at his corner like he was okay. Immediately after the referee Victor Loughlin stopped the fight at 1:38 of the 2nd round, Cazares rose to his feet in disbelief and began to protest, as if he wanted to continue. Continue reading →
