    Great fighter but in my opinion he's dragging the name out a bit. Good, but nothing on his old man.

    Yeah, he could still do well at the sub-elite level I think. He's coming back against Senchenko, who just lost by KO to Malignaggi, decent comeback opponent. Well see how much he has left.

    Yeah, he's limited in terms of his dimension, especially when compared to his father, but I think he'll continue improving. He just wasn't ready for someone as good as Martinez. He needs to stop draining himself too. His stomach at the weigh-in against Martinez was fucking concave!



    In other news, Mayweather isn't fighting this year since he claims to have lost 15 pounds getting by on commissary in jail, and Pacquiao is fighting Juan Manuel Marquez again.

    Yo guys, great night of boxing tonight, exciting double-header with a variety of styles!

    Nonito "Filipino Flash" Donaire is going to take on unbeaten quick and powerful boxer Toshiaki Nishioka. After a few uninspiring performances, Donaire is looking to go back to his fundamentals and let the knockout come to him, instead of constantly looking for that one punch. With the blazing handspeed and one-punch knockout power he himself has, he may just get it, though Nishioka himself is proven after having beaten veteran former champ and hall of famer Rafael Marquez one year ago. Expect a high-speed chess match with plenty of thunder behind the punches.

    Brandon Rios was looking like the next offensive superstar in the sport, until weight-cutting problems and a tricky stylistic challenge in Cuban Richard Abril took off much if his perceive luster in what many called a bad decision in favor of Rios. Now that he's moved up a division, he's ready to go back to the effective bullying style he used to knock out so many of his opponents. His opponent, unbeaten Mike Alvarado, would be more than happy to oblige in a war, as evidenced by the performances against his two previous opponents. As the saying goes, "there will be blood."

    Since boxing has had a bit of a dry spell in terms of quality fights, don't miss out on this gem of a card!

    As expected, Donaire-Nishioka was a high-speed chess match in which Nonito got the better of his man, and Rios-Alvarado was absolute WAR! Best back-and-forth action fight I've seen in a long time. For anyone that missed it, HBO is re-airing the fights tonight at 11:30pm Eastern time!

    (For anyone who wants to watch the fights but doesn't have access to a TV network, just ask me and I'll get you a way to watch online)

    Sadly, boxing fans around the world are saying goodbye to one of the most accomplished and nurturing figures in boxing history, legendary trainer and commentator Emmanuel Steward. It really won't be the same without him. RIP.

    Also on tonight is a clash between multi-weight champion Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero and the fast, hard-hitting Andre Berto. Both men are striving to climb up the ranks of the top ten and land another big title shot, so both are going to try and make a statement while executing their game-plan, make sure you tune in.

    Anybody catch the Hatton fight? Sad to see him go, did real well early in the fight but just doesn't have it anymore. Hope he maintains the progress he's made in his life and doesn't go too hard on himself.



    You've got nothing to be ashamed of Ricky, you made us proud!

    Cotto vs. Trout tonight! Future Hall-of-Famer Miguel Cotto is coming off a
    competitive loss to undefeated superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr., and looks to become champion again by taking on young undefeated belt-holder Austin Trout. Trout has had to come up the hard way, getting little attention from promoters & TV networks, and looks to have a difficult style that most name fighters have conveniently avoided. Will Cotto's experience and skill be able to overcome the tall, quick, and rangy Southpaw in Trout? He propels himself to the top of the ranks if he can come off of a win, but Cotto is determined to remain relevant and dominant before he exits the sport. Don't miss what's sure to be a competitive match-up.

    Tonight is Pacquiao-Marquez 4, what is hopefully a decisive end to a historic rivalry. After 3 exciting, competitive fights and 3 controversial decisions, this fight will determine where each All Time Great stands until the end of their career, and possibly forever in boxing history. Each man is said to have had their best training camp ever, and neither man wants another taste of corruption by the judges; they are going for the knockout, and trained to achieve it. Don't miss what might be the end of an era between two fighters that defined greatness within their generation and added their names to the legendary pairings of our time; Robinson and Lamotta, Duran and Leonard, Ali and Frazier, Barrera and Morales...Pacquiao-Marquez.

    Ladies and gentleman, Manny Pacquiao had been knocked out cold by his arch-nemesis Juan-Manuel Marquez!

    After trading knockdowns and flurries, Juan Manuel Marquez put an end to what he and many fans considered a string of unjust decisions, and took it out of the judges hands by doing what few ever suspected he could. This may have been the most thrilling bout of all of them. I'll upload the fight in it's entirety when I get a chance.

    Anyone here? Two very exciting fights on tonight. Pound-for-Pound star Nonito Donaire is taking on veteran champion Jorge Arce in a classic Filipino vs Mexico rivalry, and Amir Khan is making his comeback after switching trainers to fight undefeated Mexica-American Carlos Molina. I hope I'm not the only revlefter checking out boxing, these few months have had and will continue to have some very exciting fights.

    This Saturday night, Bernard Hopkins is looking to become the oldest champion in boxing history....again! I'm going to be there live in Brooklyn as he takes on undefeated Belt-Holder Tavoris Cloud.

    Hopkins lost a decision against Chad Dawson some time ago and looked his age, but wasn't dominated and put up a competitive fight. Cloud seems to post less difficult stylistic challenges, but is also a bit more explosive on the offense. Will Hopkins, at 48, surpass his own record?

    Boxing is getting real exciting in the rest of 2013. Two fight-of-the-year candidates that look tough to beat have already happened, and more exciting match-ups are yet to come.

    First was the battle between Timothy Bradley and Ruslan Provodnikov. Here's the HBO lead up, undercard, and the full fight! Check it out, incredible display of skill and will from both men.

    Coming up tomorrow night (Saturday), Pound-for-Pound elite world champion Nonito Donaire is taking on Cuban Olympian and former amateur star Guillermo Rigondeaux. Donaire was named the 2012 fighter of the year, and faces one of the most talented boxers to come out of the Cuban system. Dominating in 11 pro fights, Rigondeaux hopes to gain recognition in the pro game by fighting the best in his weight class and using his speed, brilliant skills, and knockout power to topple the Filipino Flash.
