VOTE: WILL FLOYD-PAC BE GREAT?

FIGHT WEEK IS HERE!

How good will Floyd-Pac be?

Floyd-Pac A Classic?

Las Vegas, NV– It’s just five days away. Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will finally meet. All the hoopla about ticket prices, Mayweather’s convictions of Domestic Violence, all this outside of the ring stuff is getting more attention than the event. For the exorbitant ticket prices and $100 dollar PPV, it can’t just be good, it needs to be great. So that begs the question you are asked to vote on. Read more

Floyd’s grand arrival was roughly minutes after 4pm. He initially fielded questions for boxing writers in the outside tent on what was an extremely windy day in Sin City.

He then went inside the gym and did video and audio interviews with the various media outlets. As much criticism as the brash sports star gets, he obviously loves the media attention but made sure to try his best to give as many one on one interviews as time allowed. He also got down on the pads and did mitt work and well as other various exercises. Mayweather faces Manny Pacquiao in the biggest money fight in boxing history on May 2nd.

HOPKINS VS KOVALEV:TALE OF THE TAPE & POLL

HOPKINS FACES FIGHTER 18 YEARS HIS JUNIOR

BERNARD HOPKINS, WBA and IBF Light-heavyweight champion

Lets hope Hopkins doesn't go out like this.

Lets hope Hopkins doesn’t go out like this.

AGE-49
HEIGHT-6’1
REACH-75′
RECORD-55-6-2, 32 KOs

SERGEY KOVALEV, WBO Light-heavyweight champion 
AGE-31
HEIGHT-6’0
REACH-72 1/2′
RECORD-25-0-1, 23 KOs

ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION

The signifigant factor here in favor of Hopkins is his jab. He has an almost 3 inch reach advantage. If he can control Kovalev with his jab from the outside and smother the Russian on the inside he has a chance. Kovalev just needs to fight like the younger man to win. He has the skill,athleticism and power to beat the 49 year old. Got to go with the younger man here. Must side with logic. Even though Kovalev has never gone past 8 rounds, not sure if Bernard has the reflexes to take him into deep water with out taking too much punishment early in the fight. A stubborn Hopkins is in a fight he didn’t need to take. He won’t get too much credit for beating Kovalev if he wins. People will cry that he was overrated. Bernard has a great chin, but just don’t see him making the distance here.

GOLOVKIN VS GEALE ODDS AND POLL

PREDICTIONS AND POLL ON HBO FIGHTS ON SATURDAY!

Saturday, July 26th, Madison Square Garden

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) vs Daniel Geale(30-2, 16 KOs).
For Golovkins WBA middleweight title.

Gennady Golovkin

Gennady Golovkin

ODDs-Golovkin 4-1 favorite.

Golovkin’s toughest test thus far. Former champion Geale is formidable, but lacks punching power, and defense is average. Would be surprised at a Geale win or a close fight. Aussie might be able to win a couple of rounds on grit and experience, but may get stopped late. “GGG” is looking for his 17th stoppage win in a row.

Bryant Jennings (18-0, 10 KOs) vs Mike Perez (20-0-1, 12 KOs)

Heavyweights

ODDs– Jennings 7-5 favorite

Close fight but lean towards Jennings. Perez an unpredictable commodity after ending the career of Magomed Abdusalamov last year. Read more

CANELO:21%
DRAW:2.3%
MAYWEATHER BY KO:9.8%
CANELO BY KO:12.6%

Mayweather put on a clinic versus Alvarez who fought with little sense of urgency.The Mexican star had a strategy that he was going to outbox the master boxer. Just like Robert Guerrero who was dominated by Mayweather in his last outing, he came to the fight with no alternate game plan and allowed the now 45-0 Mayweather to coast to victory.
