Mayweather tells Maidana: Boxing is like chess

Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KO’s) plans on showing his May 3rd opponent Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO’s) that big power is meaningless if you don’t have the talent to land your power shots with any regularity. Maidana has talked repeatedly in the last weeks that he’s going to use his superior punching power to first hurt and then knock Mayweather out when the two of them meet in the squared circle at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather, 37, isn’t having none of it, though, and he feels that he’s going to give Maidana a boxing lesson and beat him with ease. Continue reading

Schaefer wants Golovkin for Quillin’s next fight

quillin53WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (31-0, 22 KO’s) will likely be facing No.5 WBO Daniel Jacobs (27-1, 24 KO’s) next rather than a bigger named opponent that will bring in more money. Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer says that he’s hoping that WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will fight Quillin instead because that’s a fight that he’d like together. If Schaefer can’t work with Golovkin’s promoters at K2 in putting a unification bout then Jacobs will likely be Quillin’s next opponent. Continue reading

Ariza hoping Mayweather stands in front of Maidana on May 3rd

mayweather5Alex Ariza, the strength and conditioning coach for WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (35-3, 31 KO’s), believes he’s got a real chance of beating Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26 KO’s) in their fight on May 3rd, if Mayweather chooses to stand in front of Maidana the entire fight. Ariza notes that the 37-year-old Mayweather doesn’t move around now like he used to earlier in his career, and he’s a lot easier to hit than he was when he was out-boxing his opponents without getting hit.

Broner looking to impress against Molina on 5/3

Adrien Broner (27-1, 22 KO’s) has a lot to prove on May 3rd when he faces a rusty 5’5” Carlos Molina (17-1-1, 7 KO’s) on the Showtime pay-per-view undercard of Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana card, called “The Moment.” Broner lost his last fight against Marcos Maidana at 147, and in doing so he lost his WBA welterweight title.

Molina is a good test for Broner, because he’s someone with a straight forward fighting style who will be there in front of him the entire night. Molina was halted by Amir Khan in the 10th round in his last fight two years ago, and he’s not fought since. Khan beat Molina by using an in and out attack to get the job done, and limit the amount of times that he was able to land his own big shots. Continue reading

Seahawks take a gamble with Terrelle Pryor

pryor556The Seattle Seahawks organization made a confusing move on Monday in trading a 7th round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders to pick up 3rd string quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who the Raiders were on the verge of cutting. The Seahawks made the move to trade for Pryor rather than wait to pick him up on waivers because they likely wouldn’t have been able to get to him in time. The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly interested in signing Pryor, as were a number of other teams. Continue reading

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. not signing contract extension with Top Rank yet

chavez jr338Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-1-1, 32 KO’s) is holding off on signing a contract extension with Top Rank, because he reportedly wants a better financial deal and transparency in the numbers that his fights generate for the promotional company. Chavez Jr has nine months left on his contract with Top Rank, and they want to re-sign an extension of three fights. However, the 28-year-old Chavez Jr. feels that he can get more money by fighting elsewhere than he would if he accepted the offer from Top Rank for those three fights. Continue reading

Hopkins tells Kovalev what he needs to do for them to fight

hopkins6349-year-old Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KO’s) got one step closer to becoming the undisputed light heavyweight champion with his win over WBA champion Beibut Shumenov (14-2, 9 KO’s) last Saturday night. Hopkins now has the IBF and WBA belts, and the only titles at 175 that he doesn’t have is the WBC belt that is held by champion Adonis Stevenson and the WBO title that Sergey Kovalev has in his possession.
