MAYWEATHER, DURAN, LEONARD & HEARNS

September 18th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

Roberto Duran (1980)

Roberto Duran (1980)

NAPOLES, DURAN, LEONARD HEARNS ALL GREAT WELTERS

San Francisco, CA- For the life of me, I tried real hard to think of a fighter who was as good as the man who calls himself

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather

Money” in Floyd Mayweather. Going through the history of the welterweight (147 lb.) division and where to rate Floyd. No Ray Robinson, although unbeaten at 147 at like 48-0 before moving up to 160 (middleweight), that is where people rate the man born Walker Smith.

“THREE AMIGOS” NOT “THREE STOOGES”

Even though Floyd could beat middles today, the only other welterweights I would rate over Mayweather are Roberto Duran, the aforementioned Ray Leonard and Tommy “Hit Man” Hearns. I would say that these 3 men, all fellow opponents in the last golden era of boxing, the 1980s, would beat Floyd.

TIRED OF MAYWEATHER SCREWING FANS

September 16th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

YOU ALL BITCH ABOUT FLOYD AFTER

Stop The Bullshit With Floydcott

Stop The Bullshit With Floydcott


San Francisco, CA- Having been around since the days of the Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) championship coronation, I’m going to tell you that this is likely to offend Floyd Mayweather and his groupies.

FLOYD HAS “PIMPED” YOU FANS OFF!

That being said, why is Floyd worth throwing down $70 bucks to watch? Time and again he keeps conning you by promising Marvin Hagler-Tommy Hearns-like excitement in soundbites pre-fight. The lead up is great, it’s after that first bell rings that any pugilistic erection you had goes limp.

LARRY MERCHANT SKIPPED THE CARD

After a couple of rounds, the writing was on the wall and referee Kenny Bayless wasn’t going to let Marcos Maidana fight inside. Tony Weeks reffed the first encounter and allowed them to fight in close.

REFEREE SPLIT THEM TOO FAST

All props to Bayless, but his being so quick to break was predicted prior by both manager Bob Spagnola and TV legend Larry Merchant.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER WIN TOPS RESULTS

September 14th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

FLOYD SUPERB IN REMATCH

Floyd Mayweather- Manny Pacquiao Likely In 2015?

Floyd Mayweather- Manny Pacquiao Likely In 2015?


San Francisco, CA- A rematch of a May fight wasn’t worthy of regurgitating it a second time unless you had nothing to do Saturday night and felt the need to throw away some $60 clams, then you watched the Floyd Mayweather spanking of Marcos Maidana on Showtime Pay Per View. With some decent punches landing in round three, towards the end, Maidana probably enjoyed his best moment in 12 rounds.

MAYWEATHER-MAIDANA BREAKDOWN QUICKLY

Losing a point for pushing, accused of biting Mayweather’s hand, these are the tactics the Argentine was forced to adopt in order to try and defeat the guy people love to hate Floyd Mayweather. If Mayweather was serious about getting a knockout, he probably would not have ran the final round like he did. With the win in hand, Floyd knew the round was inconsequential when it came to winning the fight. Mayweather is now 47-0, 26 KOs, MM declines to 34-5, 31 KOs. Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao looks likely in 2015 should Manny beat Chris Algieri November 22.

“AVERAGE” ALFREDO ANGULO REDUCED TO THAT

Alfred Angulo was upset Saturday night by James De La Rosa in a 160 lb. bout. The former 154 lb. title challenger is finished after tasting the canvas in round two and eventually losing his third straight fight. Scores were wide at 98-90, 99-89 & 96-92. “AAA” now 23-5, 18 KOs. Upstart De La Rosa ascends to 23-3, 13 whacks.

SANTA CRUZ DISPATCHES STIFF!

When I refer to a fighter being a “stiff” it’s usually because he’s in way over his head with a fighter of greater ability as was the case when Leo Santa Cruz (28-0-1, 15 KOs) drilled hapless Manuel Roman (17-2-3, 6 KOs) with a single left hand with a KO 2. Santa Cruz needs to face WBO and linear World champ Guillermo Rigondeaux in what is the best fight at 122 right now. WBA guy Scott Quigg might be waiting in the wings for either. READ MORE…

IS MAYWEATHER-MAIDANA 2 IMPOTENT?

September 10th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

MAY NEED VIAGRA TO “GET UP” SATURDAY

Chips For Saturday Fight Parties

Chips For Saturday Fight Parties


San Francisco, CA- Two fights ago, people were enamored with the prospect of Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez. After Floyd (now 46-0, 26 KOs) excused the student Alvarez in 12 frames, Mayweather was “supposed” to meet protege Adrian Broner, but Marcos Maidana got in the way last December when he ruined both Broner and his unbeaten mark.

FIRST FIGHT CLOSE IN ROUNDS

The 12-round fight this past May was one in which Mayweather gave away a good many early rounds, such that after 12 sessions of battle I had it six-six in rounds meaning the bout I saw was a draw. Floyd got “touched” on occasion and both his detractors and Maidana’s backers were making like Marcos beat him up when he did not!

MOST UNCOMPETITIVE EVEN FIGHT EVER

When the world woke up the day after the initial Mayweather-Maidana encounter, people were saying that it looked like Floyd (46-0, 26 KOs) might “have slipped a bit” as the Argentine “touched” him facially more than anyone had in years, if ever! READ MORE…

# 1 RANKED HEAVY EDDIE MACHEN MURDERED?

September 10th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

Eddie Machen

Eddie Machen

BOXER’S DEATH MURDER OR ACCIDENT

San Francisco, CA- It was an early summer morning in 1972, Eddie Machen, once the #1 ranked heavyweight contender was found dead lying in the driveway of the apartment building he lived in on the 3300 block of Mission St. here in The City. Right next to the greasy spoon that still is the Nulite Kitchen, Eddie had been living here since his 1967 retirement brought about by his losing to unheralded Boone Kirkman.

EDDIE LIKED BOOZE & PHARMACY DRUGS

After boxing, Eddie got a job with the Teamsters and worked odd jobs for local businesses. Among other things, Eddie drank a lot at the four bars and the bowling alley that were all within 200 feet of his front door.

CUS KEPT FLOYD AWAY FROM THREE GUYS

Unlike a lot of older fighters, Machen who was born in Redding, CA, a city around 100 miles north of San Francisco, didn’t show any obvious signs (at least to me) from the residual effects of over 60 fights. Truth be told, then champion Floyd Patterson’s manager Cus D’Amato, kept Floyd away from Eddie, Zora Folley, and Sonny Liston. Sonny would get Patterson after Floyd, no longer able to face the public’s constant clamoring for him to face Sonny, that Floyd finally told Cus to make the fight. D’Amato’s reluctance to fight Machen and Foley was based on Cus’s belief that both Machen and Zora were too cute and would box circles around Floyd.

PRESS RELEASE: PROSPECT PRICHARD COLON

September 10th, 2014 By RingTalk

SMALL TOWN AMERICAN WITH BIG ASPIRATIONS

Prichard Colon

Prichard Colon

When someone speaks of small town America, it is presumed that this is a small Midwest community that brings visions of hard working people and family owned businesses. These folks have a higher propensity to lookout for the best interest of their community. All is true in this situation except for the fact that this community also exists beyond the contiguous US.
In the small town of Orocovis, Puerto Rico, resides hometown boxer Prichard “Digget” Colon, where he is currently preparing for his upcoming bout at the Hard Rock Casino In Las Vegas, NV on September 11, 2014. Prichard is a 21 year old prospect who is quickly becoming a contender on the national scene. As an amateur he was 5 times Puerto Rican National champ. As a professional he is currently 11-0 with 10 knockouts.

Prichard’s hometown Orocovis is located in the center of Puerto Rico, commonly referred to as Corazón de Puerto Rico (Heart of Puerto Rico). It has a population of 23,000 and is landlocked by surrounding counties. There is limited access to a well-equipped gym and boxing resources. Despite these obstacles Prichard and his team (Team Colon) are driven for success.

Team Colon includes his father Richard who trains him & older brother Ricardo who also helps. Richard and Ricardo have both served our country, Richard served in the US Army and Ricardo served in the Air force. They also serve their community by working with the youth of Orocovis, Puerto Rico.
Currently Team Colon spends their time training with the youngsters of Orocovis by teaching them about discipline, self-respect and give them an opportunity to be active. Richard asks that the parents of these youngsters to meet with him at least once every six months so that they can promote involvement in their kids’ lives. Richard understands that when parents are involved, the kids will have a higher chance at success in life. Richard influence on the kids in the community has grown year after year. Through the success of his efforts and others in the community, they have persuaded the town of Orocovis City Council to build a gym.

SHOWTIME BOXING SO PREDICTABLE

September 8th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

BOXING NEEDS QUALITY NOT QUANTITY

Correctly Picks Entire Showtime Card

Correctly Picks Entire Showtime Card


San Francisco, CA- In regards to the Saturday card featuring Adrien Broner, Andre Berto and Lucas Matthysse, the guy pictured to the left had called out the victors well in advance.

BODY SHOT HURLED FROM ARGENTINA

That being said, the highlight of the night was that body shot Matthysse put on Roberto Ortiz. Down and not real eager to continue, Ortiz apparently gambled with the human clock and was counted out by referee Benjie Estivez at 2:45 of round two.

MATTHYSSE VICTIM AN UNBEATEN SORRY SORT

Whether he gaffed with the count or not, Ortiz (31-1-1, 24 KOs) looked less than ordinary and I’m being nice. We will discuss Matthysse’s (36-3, 34 KO’s) next bout a little later.

BERTO WINS “CLAIMING RACE” IN CINCY

Andre Berto returned to the winner’s circle for the first time in since 2011 after being drubbed by Robert Guerrero (L UD 12) and Jesus Soto Karass (L TKO 12) but seeing he faced a guy in Steve Chambers (24-4-1, 6 KOs) that could not punch his way out of a paper bag, don’t break out the champagne just yet Andre.

CAN HUNT BRING BERTO BACK?

Now 31, Berto (29-3, 22 KOs) is working with trainer Virgil Hunter of Andre Ward fame. Hunt may shore up some leaks, but Berto still doesn’t take well as he looked “bothered” to the body early on against the feather fisted Chambers.

CHAMPION KELL BROOK STABBED IN SPAIN

September 4th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

BROOK STABBED AGAIN ON VACATION

Kell Brook

Kell Brook


San Francisco, CA- Recently crowned IBF welterweight (147 lb.) champion Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KOs) is recovering in a hospital in Spain after being stabbed in the leg while on vacation in Tenerife. Although Brook is “NOT” critical the Police said, “He was stabbed in the left leg and is hospitalized. He lost a lot of blood. There are no arrests at this time and the Guardia Civil are investigating.”

JUST BEAT “HOUSE GUY” ON SHOWTIME

The 28-year old Brook bested previously unbeaten Shawn Porter (25-1, 15 KOs) a fortnight ago in what was a upset to some. Not I, as this writer is of the opinion Kell Brook has untapped talent as well as possibly unlimited pugilistic potential.

NOT FIRST TIME BROOK HAS BEEN KNIFED

Last month former British and European champion Jamie Moore was shot in both legs while in Marbella, Spain training middleweight (160) Matthew Macklin. And THIS is the second time Brook has been been a stabbing victim. READ MORE…
