Broner decisions Taylor; Matthysse stops Ortiz; Berto defeats Upsher

Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KOs) scored a 12th round knockdown in the process of defeating Emmanuel Taylor (18-3, 12 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision in his hometown at the U.S Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Taylor was having a good round in the 12th until Broner connected with a left hand to the head that dropped Taylor on his backside on the canvas in the last 15 seconds of the round. Taylor got back to his feet and the fight ended several seconds later. It was a close affair with both guys taking turns landing big shots.

Like in his fight against Marcos Maidana, Broner spent a lot of time on the ropes covering up and trying to land counter shots. This enabled Taylor to tee off on him in many of the rounds. Broner’s defense was sound even when he was backed up against the ropes, but it still didn’t look good with him backed up like that. Continue reading

Marcos Maidana vs. The World II

It has certainly been a while since we have heard Floyd Mayweather Jr. mention the blueprint to beat him, the one that every fighter facing him claims to have a hold of before realizing inside the ring, that they never did.

Everyone has a plan, until they don’t. So many various angles have been tried, too many strategies and approached to mention, yet nothing seemed to phase Mayweather Jr.

In his last fight against Marcos Maidana, Mayweather Jr., despite emerging a winner yet again, looked tired and certainly beat up; at least more than we are used to seeing. Many claimed that Maidana should have been given the victory nod that night, while some agree that despite the fight being extremely close, Floyd did deserve the win. Continue reading

Austin Trout back on track

Austin “No Doubt” Trout returned on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights to win a unanimous decision against the game Aussie, Daniel “Awesome” Dawson. Trout bounced back from two knockdowns in the third that initially left doubts about his fighting future, but saw him find his confidence and inner beast to dominate the rest of the fight and even knocked down an injured and unlucky Dawson in the Eighth.

This was a must win fight for Trout. Three losses in a row would put serious doubts on his career and more importantly, it could have broken him mentally. Continue reading

The problem returns home and the machine plans feast on Ortiz’s “0”

Adrien Broner put his foot down in order to obtain home field advantage in the city of Cincinnati against the sturdy Emmanuel Taylor. Coming off a fight of the year win, Lucas Matthysse takes on Roberto Ortiz, who has never lost a fight as a professional. The Showtime tripleheader’s first bout will be between Andre Berto and Steve Upsher Chambers.

In his last fight Adrien Broner was unspectacular, ho-humming his way to a decision versus Carlos Molina. Many fans craved for Broner to face a top flight junior welterweight. Instead he will face Emmanuel Taylor, who is fresh off his best victory over Karim Mayfield.

As Broner’s star began to rise many media members and followers of the sweet science overrated him. His close points win against Ponce De Leon was chalked up as a learning experience. Continue reading

Is making a return to the ring tonight in his hometown of Cincinnati Ohio at the U.S Bank Arena vs Emmanuel Taylor (18-2, 12 KOs). Once this fight is out the way who will he face?

WBC/WBA and Ring magazine super lightweight champion Danny “Swift” Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) coming off an easy match off Rod Salka with an explosive left hook which dropped Salka in the 2nd round for an easy highlight reel was indeed aware that many of the boxing fans considered this a cherry picking fight however the immediate question arises who is next?

Shantel Jackson vs Floyd Mayweather: A Look at Allegations and Counter-Points

With so much information floating around about this latest saga in the life and career of Floyd Mayweather, it’s only fitting that we should look at the core elements and separate the unimportant peripheral matters. The suit was filed by Shantel Jackson as a basis for “General”, “Compensatory” ($$$), and “Punitive” damages against Floyd Mayweather. Here’s a glimpse at her allegations and the counter-points they’ll have to withstand to win in court:
(Ms. Jackson Allegation #1): “He bent her arm, restrained her, and pointed a gun at her foot, asking ‘Which toe do you want me to shoot?’ “He then demanded her to remove her 17 carat diamond engagement ring at gunpoint”. This action was one of many reported in which Mr. Mayweather attacked her and imprisoned her, preventing her from leaving….a few times in which a gun was present.

Gonzalez vs. Yaegashi + Estrada vs. Segura = Flyweight Wars

The Flyweight division doesn’t normally get the same attention or recognition as the fighters do at Welterweight, Super Middleweight, or the heavily debated Super Bantamweight. This week on two smaller networks beIN sports espanol and A.W.E., 4 Flyweights will battle for future paydays, pride, legacy, and unification supremacy.

Both fights feature similar stylistic matchmaking, the traditional puncher versus boxer match-up. In this case the boxer-types being Estrada and Yaegashi, have plenty of power and will engage in a brawl when the rubber hits the road.

The last few years Roman Gonzalez has been knocking on the door of elite status. This weekend presents a chance to kick that door in. Hardcore followers in the Western Hemisphere rave about “Chocolatito” aggression and knockout power, having stopped 33 opponents to go along with his 39 wins.

Roman Gonzalez was on the outside looking in on the pound for pound list because of a lackluster resume. After a somewhat softer run at 108, Gonzalez earned a signature win against Juan Francisco Estrada in a highly entertaining and competitive bout. Continue reading

Peter Quillin vacates WBO middleweight title rather than face Korobov

LOS ANGELES (Sept. 4) – Middleweight star Peter Quillin announced today that he is vacating his WBO middleweight title, effective immediately, in order to pursue bigger opportunities at 160 pounds.

“I’d like to thank WBO president Paco Valcarcel and his organization for their support throughout the years,” said Quillin. “Winning the WBO world championship was a highlight in my career and something I’ll never forget, this is a difficult decision, but in order to make the fights the fans and I want against my fellow middleweights at the top of the division, I needed to relinquish the title. This is an exciting new chapter in my life, and I’m looking forward to cementing my spot as the best middleweight in the world.” Continue reading

Frampton vs Martinez This Saturday

There is not an opinion in the world of boxing I value more than that of Barry McGuigan. I feel that’s an opinion shared by most, if not all boxing fans the world over. And, when it comes to Carl Frampton the legendary Clones Cyclone is convinced.

Of course McGuigan is entrenched in the Frampton camp, with managerial and promotional responsibilities, alongside his mentoring capacity. So, it would be easy, or lazy, to deduce that McGuigan is biased and more likely to push the credentials of a fighter, whom he would use for financial gain. You know, like a normal manager or promoter?

But, I think that’s what makes Frampton and his team special, this is not a financial endeavour, this is much, much more than that. This is about McGuigan and his son Shane, Frampton’s excellent trainer, facilitating a special individual in his attempts to replicate and even surpass his exploits and bring genuine big time boxing back to Ireland and with it, a unity not seen since the heyday of you know who.
