WBO CHAMP IN TITLE FIGHT # 18
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CHAMPION
Let’s take a look at World & WBO heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko (62-3, 52 KOs). Having been in the heavyweight mix since winning a Gold medal in 1996, the Wladimir of 2014 is not the same fighter that lost to Lamon Brewster, Ross Purity and the late Corrie Sanders.
TRUTH AFTER LOSING WAS LEARNING
No, since April 2004 Wladimir has shut everybody down and his critics up. And while he’s 38, Wlad has never ever taken a beating. In the 1998 Puritty fight, Klitschko simply ran out of gas after swinging for the fences for 11 rounds.

KELL BROOK “MAKE OR BREAK” VS. SHAWN PORTER
SHOWTIME FROM STUB HUB CENTER IN CARSON, CA
This is an “acid” test of sorts for the 32-0 with 22 KOs Brook who has fought the usual pedestrian suspects like Lovemore N’Dou and Carson Jones twice. His standout performance is a TKO 4 over Viacheslav Senchenko (37-2-24 KOs) in 2013.
CURRY TURNED OUT TO BE OVERRATED
As for mentioning former 147 & 154 lb champ Donald Curry (34-6, 25 KOs) and Kell in the same sentence, I do that because the Brit’s think Kell has “the goods,” much like the Yanks thought Curry would deliver in the 1980s. He didn’t and Curry was thwarted by Lloyd Honeyghan at 147 and was put to sleep by Mike McCallum in 1987 by a single left hook.
KELL & PORTER BOTH HAVE LOTS TO PROVE READ MORE…

Cosmopolitan Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (HBO)- Brandon Rios (31-2-1, 23 KOs) vs Diego Gabriel Chavez (23-1, 19 KOs) (147) Odds/Prediction: Rios 5-2. Rios in spot where he needs to re-prove self. Dropping $500 to win $700 as I’m feeling Alex Arizza and Robert Garcia (combined) can improve Rios a tad.
Anton Novikov (29-0, 10 KOs) vs Jessie Vargas (24-0, 9 KOs) (WBA 140) Odds/Prediction: Vargas 3-1. “House” guy is supposed to win. BUT Anton is unbeaten as well. Time to rate Vargas will be after the fight. PASS!
Revel Resort, Atlantic City, New Jersey - (HBO) Sergey Kovalev (24-0-1, 22 KOs) vs Blake Caparello (19-0, 1D 6KOs) (WBO 175 lb. title) Odds/Prediction: Kovalev 5-1. READ MORE…

GAMBOA CAREER AN INDICTMENT OF 50 CENT
WEIGH IN WAS “TELLING” IN MY MIND
Upon my gazing at the weigh in, I at once noticed the size advantage not only in height, but in body mass. When you look at Gamboa he had the smaller in the arms, chest, shoulders, Crawford (whose spectacular we’ll get to in a second) was at least one weight division, if not two weight classes bigger than Yuri Gamboa.
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST NEVER BEFORE “UNDERDOG”
While the odds were on the side of Crawford, there were “wise guys” who thought Yuri was the better fighter and I know one that backed him with an envelope of cash. Never before in a fight, be it amateur or professional, was the Olympic Gold medalist ever an underdog.

ONE DIMENSIONAL RUSLAN EXPOSED SOMEWHAT
CLAIM TO FAME A LOSS TO BRADLEY
I mean outside of losing to Tim Bradley and besting a weight drained Mike Alvarado, what has Ruslan done that enamored him with both boxing fans and the media. Answer? Nothing! Whomever was doing the public relations for Provodnikov needs some credit here because when you look at his resume it is full of guys like the 37-18 DeMarcus Corley , that and he lost to Mauricio Herrera.

MIGUEL COTTO HAS 10-6 OPENING ROUND
PUERTO RICAN MAKES ARGENTINA CRY WITH BLITZKRIEG
Cotto was a jr. welterweight (140), welterweight (147) and super welterweight (154) champion and is thought to be in the twilight of a wonderful career when he goes and mugs Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KOs) with another knockdown in round nine. What turned out to be a mismatch was halted six seconds into round 10 when Martinez decided to stay on his stool after being beaten on like a drum for 27 minutes.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY MIGUEL’S NEW DRESS
Now they will say this was all because of trainer Freddie Roach, fine. But I still say Cotto is on the downside regardless of what he did in New York Saturday night. He’s still nearly 34, going on 39 because he has been in many wars and pummeled by both Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao.
GREAT WIN YET STILL FEEL COTTO SHOULD QUIT
The linear (recognized world title) middleweight championship has changed hands and is now in the hands of Cotto and promoter Bob Arum. Cotto’s only fight going forward should be with WBA kingpin Gennady Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs) and I as a media member, win or lose, hope that Miguel who is now retire. Cotto has the money, the legacy, a family, and have you seen Wilfred Benitez lately?
