San Francisco, CA- I admire people who can “flaunt” their financial or athletic prowess in a dignified manner. Floyd Mayweather, boxing’s highest paid star is neither dignified or classy. The manner in which he has treated Manny Pacquiao of late to me is indicative of the world’s richest boxer having a nasty mean streak.


Look, I understand that Floyd could afford to lose $11.4 million, but you know his heart was pounding throughout the 43-8 game won by the upstart Seattle Seahawks who are coached by the great Pete Carroll, as they stomped Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in much the same manner Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) would hand Floyd his own head.


That mild mannered K2 Promotions head Tom Loeffler is like the Clark Kent of promoters. Quiet, seemingly unassertive, Loeffler has a true international superstar in Golvkin who smoked Ghana’s Osumanu Adama like a NYC blunt inside of seven complete rounds. He wants Martinez at 160 or Mayweather at 154. Neither man has the “stones” to step in with the WBA 160 lb. kingpin. GGG has three more fights set for 2014, all of which will be televised on HBO, the first being in April in New York City.


Christopher Rivera (1990-2014)

Standing Christopher Rivera (1990-2014)

Last week, Christopher Riverawas shot to death in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Having recently looked into moving to the island to be closer to Francisco Valcarcel, WBO President and a female I fancy, I was blown away by the crime, corruption and disregard for human life on the island. In 2012, Hector Camacho, ex-champ in many weight classes, was gunned down sitting in a Coke dealers car. Now Rivera is the latest boxer to die violently in the land of Boriqua.


Like some horror movie, the family had Christopher propped up in the corner of a makeshift boxing ring in a San Juan Community Center. Wearing glasses, a robe and gloves, I’ve seen boxers laid out in trunks and robe in a casket, but NEVER saw a dead fighter standing up vertically. He didn’t have a great record,

but you can’t take away from Christopher going out the way he wanted, standing in a boxing ring. He was shot and killed January 24.

Soon To Be “Late” Oscar Gonzalez

Reportedly, Oscar Gonzalez was “Brain Dead” when he arrived at a Mexico City hospital Saturday night, this after being knocked out in the 10th and final round. Reports from the MD’s working on him say he is “Partially Brain Dead.” Said to be breathing on his own, his wife arrived in Mexico City and stated that on Monday, they will get everybody together and discuss the fighter’s medical future.

  1. How do you know that GGG will beat Floyd? Please make sense, just coz you feel that way it does not make it a fact. I’m one in the minority that would love for Floyd to face Gennady. After the Canelo fight I feel comfortable in Mayweather facing Martinez and Golovkin. Unlike you I won’t claim I know the outcome.

  3. Floyd is denying vehemently that he lost a 10 million bet for the Superbowl. He didn’t even bet he claimed.

    Super Bowl? Who would believe he didn’t make a bet?

    He just doesnt want to admit he LOST…..typical of him.

  4. Floyd is denying he lost money on the Superbowl. Yeah right!

    When he wins, he announces it loud.

    He said, he didnt even place a bet….hahahaha

  5. Pedro, let’s turn this around just for fun. Should GGG grow some stones (for the record, I think he’s an incredible fighter and deserves all props and more. I also think highly of him as a human being) and fight Ward? After all Ward’s been calling him for a while now (that “lack of stones” also applies to Ward and virtually any other fighter).

  6. So what if GGG “hands Floyd his own head”? There is too much of a size difference for a fight between them to be fair. Floyd is a junior welterweight fighting as as welterweight, and GGG is a middleweight. Would your prediction remain the same if Mayweather were a middleweight but possessed the same skills he has now? It is wise of him that he ignores those whose main interest is to see him get unfairly defeated by a larger man. Boxing is divided into weight classes precisely so that the matches can be primarily tests of relative skills rather than relative sizes. Remember: “A good big man defeats a good little man!” No shame in that.

  7. You guys need to stop adoring the likes of Floyd Mayweather Jr……you’re not helping the situation due to the fact that he is the #1 P4P Champ but if he doesn’t test the waters and fight Pac….what good is his status ? Start putting pressure on him to fight Pac and make it happen…..cuz I, along with the rest who paid his PPV fights….deserve some respect for the wealth that he has receive….Boxing is not what it use to be anymore…too much greed and less respect towards the fans….get your acts together and help this sport before it gets any worse.

  8. Mbuyuseli:You might feel comfortable but Mayweather sure doesn’t facing those guys! (Martinez,GGG). Your right that we actually wouldn’t know the outcome if May fought Martinez or GGG (at least it would be harder to predict than a May vs maidana OR Khan).

  9. He’s not going to fight GGG he’ll porbably pick the sissy Khan

  10. CBF, I don’t care for the Con fight either, but I will say this… If memory serves me right, Khan has lost all his fights on his feet. His KO losses are actually TKOs, and I thought they should have let the Garcia fight keep going. Pac on the other hand was given a gift in Marquez 3, lost a close fight to Bradley, and then was almost killed in Marquez 4. Please stop acting like today’s Pacquiao is the one from 2009. He’s a shell of his former self.
