BOXING NOTES HAVE FLOYD IN REAR VIEW

September 21st, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

FORGET FLOYD, JUST REMOVE HIM FROM THOUGHTS

Gennady Golovkin "Body & Fender" Work

Gennady Golovkin “Body & Fender” Work


San Francisco, CA- There was no need to get “nasty” over my appraisal of Floyd Mayweather through 47 professional outings. The Mayweather posse was rabid in responding to my feelings that Tommy Hearns, Roberto Duran and Ray Leonard, all super champions of the 80′s, would have licked Floyd like a postage stamp.

GOLOVKIN TO “RUB OUT” RUBIO ON HBO

So with another Mayweather “outing” in the rear view mirror, there is time to look at the other fighters from whom Mayweather’s taking press from. WBA middleweight (160 lb.) champ Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) faces Marco Antonio Rubio (59=6-1, 51 KOs) October 18 on HBO from Carson, CA. The old Don King adage applies here. “His (Rubio’s) chances are slim and none and slim just left town.” The big fight at 160 in 2015 will be GGG vs. the winner of the PPV gold mine that is the Miguel Cotto-Canelo Alvarez WBC & Ring Magazine middleweight title tiff.

“FILIPINO FLASH” IN WBA BOUT AT 126 UNDER GGG

Multi-division champion Nonito Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) duels Nicholas Walters (24-0, 20 KOs) of Jamaica is the main support and the HBO co-feature. Last time out in May in Macau, Walters destroyed what was left of Vic Darchinyan (39-6-1, 28 KOs). Donaire was wisely steered away from a Guillermo Rigondeaux rematch at 122

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.
