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…

UFC TONIGHT ON FOX SPORTS FROM MAINE

August 16th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

UFC VET RYAN BADER IN “REAL” TOUGH

Los Angeles, CA- Light heavyweight (205) Ryan Bader (17-4) will go up against Ovince St. Preux (16-5) in main event of the UFC‘s very first card in the state of Maine.  UFC Fight Night:  Bader vs. St. Preux takes place on Saturday at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, MN.  Both men are near the top of the division but have lost when they faced the elite fighters of the division.  I am leaning towards Bader coming out on top but a win for St. Preux would not surprise me.  Main card will kick off at 7:00PM Pacific Time.

Will Bader Get The W?

Will Bader Get The W?

CO-MAIN EVENT “DO OR DIE” FOR GRAY MAYNARD

In the co-main event, Ross Pearson (15-7-0-1) takes on Gray Maynard (11-3-1-1) at lightweight (155).  Maynard is 1-3-1 in his last 5 fights and is coming off back-to-back TKO losses.  In his spare time, Gray is known to give incredibly thrilling interviews to our own Pedro Fernandez.  Pearson is 2-2-0-1, with one of those losses being a controversial split decision to Diego Sanchez (25-7).  Maynard seems to be on the decline, and I think Pearson has a bit more left in the tank at this point.  I’d favor Pearson to take the W.

UNDERCARD COULD INCLUDE ANOTHER “BOETSCH” UPSET 

Middleweights (185) Brad Tavares (12-2) and Tim Boetsch (17-7) will share the octagon in a solid match between mid-tier challengers.  It is never wise to completely write Boetsch off, as he has a history of pulling off upsets.  In this case, I think Tavares should win.  Rounding out the rest of the card are a welterweight (170) clash between Seth Baczynski (19-11) and Alan Jouban (9-2) and a heavyweight (265 limit) bout featuring Shawn Jordan (15-6) and Jack May (7-1).  Featherweight (145) Thiago Tavares (18 – 5 – 1)  will go against Robbie ‘Problems’ Peralta (18 – 4 ) in the opening bout of the main card.

TERENCE CRAWFORD-YURI GAMBOA “POST MORTEM”

June 30th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

GAMBOA CAREER AN INDICTMENT OF 50 CENT

Photo Illustrates Size Difference

Photo Illustrates Size Difference


San Francisco, CA- There is nothing like a boxing match between two undefeated world class fighters and this past Saturday HBO offered up Terence Crawford-Yuri Gamboa in a WBO lightweight (135 lb.) affair emanating from Omaha, Nebraska. Crawford, the hometown hero had a better than 3-inch height advantage over Cuban national Gamboa.

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.

TJ DILLASHAW WINS UFC CROWN STOPPING RENAN BARAO

May 25th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

ANOTHER BRAZILIAN MMA LEGEND SLAIN BY YANKEE

TJ Dillashaw Sets Tone Early

TJ Dillashaw Sets Tone Early


Las Vegas, NV- In a shocking upset, a vastly improved T.J. Dillashaw (11-2) put a beating on bantamweight (135) champion Renan Barao (32-2) before dropping him and finishing him off in the 5th round. The new champ set the tone for the evening when he drilled the Brazilian into the canvas with a single right hand.

BOXING KEY TO VICTORY

Although the Team Alpha Male member fighting out of Sacramento, CA mixed in some takedowns here and there, it was Dillashaw’s superior boxing and footwork that allowed him to pull off a bigger upset than Chris Weidman did in beating Anderson Silva the first time last year. Barao was heavily favored going in but was thoroughly dominated by the new titleholder who was ranked #9.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT SEES BROWN BEST SILVA

May 11th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON FOX WAS SOLID!

UFC Czar Dana White

UFC Czar Dana White


Los Angeles, CA- In the main event of UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, OH, welterweight (170 lbs.) Matt Brown (19-11) continued his recent string of knockouts with a TKO over Erick Silva (16-5-0-1) at 2:11 of round three. It was a pretty dominant performance from Brown, who was able to stifle the offense of the explosive Silva throughout. This win moves Brown closer to the crack at the title in a very loaded welterweight division. Silva, who is now 4-4 in the UFC, may be forced to continue his career in another organization.

SEMI-MAIN EVENT ENDS EARLY AS WELL!

In the co-feature, middleweight (185) Costas Phillippou (13-4-1) knocked out Lorenz Larkin (14-3-1) just 3:37 seconds into the very first round. Both men landed some nice shots, but in the end, Phillippou was able to drop Larkin with a hard left hook that sealed the deal. I thought Larkin might just be good enough to best Costas who appeared to be on the way down, but Phillippou proved he has fight left in him.
