Artur Beterbiev the Beast. KO's Tarvoris Cloud in 2 Rounds.

Light Heavyweight contender Tarvoris Cloud was utterly annihilated in todays bout with Artur Beterbiev in Russia. Cloud was dropped four times by Beterbiev, who impressively was only in his sixth fight. This fight was amazing to see and the creation of a potential superstar has emerged. His power is real and his speed looks real. Some people will say Cloud is past his best but from what I saw from Cloud in the first minute, he had some good speed and power in his punches. 

I think this is just an impressive display from an impressive fighter. In my eyes he will be a future Light Heavyweight champion, whether he goes higher then this and unifies, no one knows. However it is a good chance. He also has a win over Kovalev in the amateurs. And that does hint that he is a special fighter.

Arthur Abraham Just Wins Against Paul Smith. Horrible Scorecards. Great Fight

Arthur Abraham and Paul Smith fought a great close fight which had great actions from round 5 onwards. I could see the fight going to either fighter by a maximum of 2 rounds. The scorecards that were turned in once again made me vomit as one had Abraham winning by 11 rounds. The fight was close and Paul Smith deserves a rematch. I think he can beat Abraham in the rematch. 

A few facts about Abraham:


- He still has serious power in his right hand. 
- He isn't the same fighter anymore his speed and work rate has declined quickly over the past two years. 
- Abraham isn't even top 10 at Super Middleweight right now. 

Amir Khan vs Robert Guerrero May Be Next

Expect an announcement on Amir Khans next fight in the next week or so. It is looking like December will be when Khan returns to the ring. A few rumours circulating are that Amir Khan may be fighting Robert Guerrero next. This would be a major fight and a big risk for Khan, since Guerrero brings some power and an awkward style. A win for Khan would set him up for a super fight with Mayweather, or even potentially Pacquiao. This fight looks promising and would be a good bout to finish the year off. 

Keys to Victory:

- Guerrero needs to constantly pressure Khan and may stop Khan late. 
- More likely for me is Khan boxes from the outside and uses his fast feet to win. 

Key Factor : Guerrero is very slow on his feet which will play into Khans hands. I expect Khan to win by UD.

Showtime Sports Drops Shobox. End of An Era.

Shobox has existed between 2001-2014, but it won't be around next season. Showtime Sports dropped the event yesterday and this is being widely reported across Twitter. Yesterday i wrote a story about Stephen Espinoza being a success by bringing Mayweather to the network. However after this recent development I can do a full flip. 

No Showbox stalls the progression of up and coming talents. This has been a medium for young talents to progress to genuine fighters on major cards at Showtime sports. With showbox cards no longer being planned for next season it may further stall careers. It is a sad day for boxing lovers across the world.

Canelo Moves To HBO. Wants to Make Pacquiao Fight. Takes Mayweathers Dates.

Canelo Alvarez this week signed a multi fight, multi year deal with HBO which has sent shockwaves throughout the boxing community. This opens up a potential super fight with Manny Pacquiao which is an option considering Oscar De La Hoya has recently begun working with Top Rank. Alvarez vs Pacquiao is one of the biggest fights that can be made in boxing. 

Alvarez is set to face Joshua Clottey in December and a win will set up a major bout between Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao. The move to HBO makes sense and is a smart move by Canelo's team and HBO. 

Stephen Espinoza. How Is He Doing With Boxing On Showtime?

It seems as though Showtime boxing is deteriorating over the past 24 months. Well truth be told it has had some outstanding achievements, in signing Mayweather to a five fight deal. Getting the biggest star in boxing fighting on your network is an outstanding achievement and outweighs everything else. Such is the draw of Mayweather. 

Espinoza can put on better cards though. Some of the main events have been absolutely shocking such as Salka vs Garcia. I know the promoters pay the fighters and everything and showtime only pays for the broadcast rights. However some of the fights being aired are at an ESPN level. Losing Canelo is a big loss. However we can't oversee the Mayweather situation. Attracting the biggest star in the sport to your network outweighs all the negatives in my opinion. Espinoza can take the sport to a new level by encouraging better co-main events and main event cards.

The Floyd Mayweather Diet Is Fake. Why Mayweather eats healthy and no junk food.

If you have been watching all access on Showtime or 24/7 on HBO, the documentary series leading up to Mayweathers bouts over the past few years you may have noticed Mayweathers diet. Floyd says he eats junk food every night including soft drinks and other high fat fast foods such as Mcdonalds. However it seems this has been totally scripted and is fake. 

Mayweather recently told reporters at the post fight press conference of the Maidana rematch that Alex Ariza was brought into his camp to help him improve his diet. Floyd said that his improved diet improved his legs later in the fight. 

Mayweather Reveals Show Time All Access Is Fake And Plotted.

At a Nevada commission hearing Floyd Mayweather has revealed All access 24/7 is fake and that his fighters don't spar endlessly in the gym. The all access episode showed that Mayweather made his fighters spar for 31 minutes while gambling on who the winner would be. However at the Nevada commission hearing where Mayweather was made to comment on putting his gym fighters in harms way, he revealed 24/7 all access is fake. 

This was a harsh statement to make and the relevance of all access Showtime shows is now totally nonsense. No one will be watching these shows into the future after hearing this.

Nonito Donaire vs Nicholas Walters. Finally a good undercard fight on HBO.

The co-main event to Golovkin vs Rubio will be Nonito Donaire vs Nicholas Walters. This will be a great fight and is one of the rare good undercard/co main event fights which have been shown on HBO & Showtime during 2014. It seems as though undercards are now full of showcase fights which are really at an ESPN standard, as a result of Al Haymon and other major players in boxing having way to much power. Cards like this are what boxing needs to get the sport big again. Casual sport fans are turned off by scorecard robberies and weak undercards. Finally Donaire vs Walters entices people to get out to the card, which not suprisingly has also sold a lot of tickets as a result of this. 

Mike Tyson and Don King. Two enemies who despise each other.

Mike Tyson and Don King have a deep hatred which can be seen in the recent Tyson documentary. It seems as though Tyson has tried to punch and kick Don King on multiple occasions. This is due to Tyson feeling as if Don King had screwed him out of all his career prize money. This may be a little bit true, however Tyson did have some crazy investments going. Including keeping a live tiger on his premises. There have also been reports that within 24 hours after a fight, Tyson sometimes would have gambled his entire fighting pay check. It seemed as though Gambling was another vice Tyson may have had. To hear more about this relationship, watch the recent Tyson documentary. 

There are also several videos on youtube where Mike Tyson attacks Don King. One I have seen involves Tyson swearing at Don King, another shows him punching Don King in the ribs. 

Pacquiao vs Mayweather in 2014. Starting to become a reality.

Jim Gray the showtime commentator immediately asked Floyd Mayweather about fighting Manny Pacquiao, after Mayweathers win in the rematch over Marcos Maidana. For a Showtime commentator to ask Floyd to fight a fighter from HBO sports, shows that something may be happening behind the scenes. There is still way to much money involved in the fight then any other fight out there. Mayweather keeps saying he doesn't even know who Pacquiao is fighting, but the truth of the matter is Floyd knows a lot about Pacquiao. Make this fight happen. The fans want to see it. And the fighters get a lot more money. Drop the egos. 

What needs to happen:

-Showtime and HBO need to work together on getting this fight. 
-Mayweather and Arum need to drop their egos.

Orlando Salido vs Terdsak Kokietgym Full Fight Video Replay Analysis

Orlando Salido vs Terdsak Kokietgym was one of the best fights I have ever seen. In total their was 7 knockdowns and it will be classified as one of the best fights of 2014. There never seems to be a bad fight that Orlando Salido is involved in. Salido is a power punching brawler who always makes his Mexican fight fans proud. Watching video of Orlando Salido vs Terdsak Kokietgym was unbelievable. I was shocked at the courage displayed by both fighters. Time and time again both Salido and Kokietgym got up off the canvas to go to war again. A great fight and a great win for Salido, who won by KO in the 11th round.

Australian Boxing. Struggling to Go Past Mundine, Geale & Green.

Australian boxing seems to be on a steady decline with major stars Mundine, Danny Green and Daniel Geale seemingly on the back end of their careers. As the careers of these three Australian stars dwindle down it remains to be seen who the next great fighter out of Australia will be. These fighters may be a while off retiring and I expect Green vs Mundine 2 to happen eventually. I also expect Mundine vs Geale 3 to happen eventually. However these fights aren't as big as their first fights and a new star is needed to make sure Australian boxing continues to improve on the world map. 

Peter Quillin Got $500 K US Step Aside Fee. To Not Fight Korobov By Haymon?


Many were stumped when Peter Quillin turned down a career high pay day to not fight Korobov to defend his world title. Instead Quillin vacated his title. It is being circulated that Al Haymon may have paid Quillin $500 000 US, step aside money. Great to be able to make that amount of money to not even fight. The purse bid for the fight was won by Jay Z’s new boxing promotion company, and Al Haymon and Jay Z have had some problems in the past. May be seen as an attempt to block Jay Z from entering the fight game, which Al Haymon practically dominates.

George Groves Wins. Mandatory for Anthony Dirrell.


Coming off two devastating knockout losses to Carl Froch, George Groves bounced back beating a European domestic level opponent to become the mandatory to face Anthony Dirrell. That fight will be interesting and could be seen as a 50-50 fight. I think Groves may be able to out box Dirrell and win his first world title. That fight may end up taking place in the UK as Groves is a bigger draw than Dirrell. However Anthony Dirrell is with Al Haymon, which means he has a lot of power over where the fight occurs.

Gennady Golovkin. Golovkin Will KO Rubio Within 4 Rounds.

Gennady Golovkin will KO Rubio within 4 rounds, I have no doubt. Golovkins power is unmatched and he cuts off the ring well. Rubio does have some power, but not nearly enough power to hurt Golovkin. Curtis Stevens is a much larger puncher than Rubio and he was unable to rock Golovkin, despite landing numerous flush shots. I expect the fight to pan out like the following.


  • Round 1: Feeling out period for the first two minutes before Golovkin starts landing good shots. Rubio tries to back up Golovkin but soon realises he is in with an opponent who has freakish power.
  • Round 2: Golovkin will begin to break down Rubio with vicious body shots. By the end of the round Rubio will start to feel the effects of the Golovkin attack.
  • Round 3: Rubio will be dropped numerous times in Round three and may be lucky to see the round out.
  • I expect Golovkin to than knock out Rubio in the 4th round.


Golovkin is a special talent. Humble, professional and a great role model for the sport of boxing.

Gennady Golovkin vs Miguel Cotto. Or Golovkin vs Canelo. Fights to See in 2015.

At the top of my wish list for fights in 2015 are bouts between Gennady Golovkin, Miguel Cotto & Canelo Alvarez. Golovkin is a crude power punching middleweight with great ring generalship.  Golovkin to me is unbeatable at the moment, although he hasn't fought elite level opposition as of yet. This hasn't been his fault, the reason for this is just the best not wanting to face Golovkin. However as Golovkins star power has rose the other elite fighters are going to have to fight him in the near future. 

The most interesting bout for me is Golovkin vs Cotto at Middleweight. I want to see how Golovkin deals with Cotto's power. Cotto has a stronger left hook and left hook to the body in comparison to Golovkin, so it will be an interesting fight to watch. I think Cotto could pull off a massive upset, given how good he looked against Martinez. 


Canelo may provide Golovkin with some problems also. Canelo has an excellent chin and is a power puncher himself. I favour Golovkin to get the better of Canelo though. However in a bout between Golovkin vs Cotto, I favour Cotto at the moment. 


These are two fights I want to see in 2015. And the entire boxing world also wants to see these fights. 

Mike Tyson The Street Fighter. Mike Tyson Street Fight Information.

Mike Tyson was allegedly involved in a street fight with another boxer during his boxing career. The fight occurred in a night club and from just one punch the damage to the other boxer was massive. The person on the receiving end of Tyson's punch required surgery and sued for damages. Their is footage of this fight on youtube. Tysons power was fierce and in a street fight he would be impossible to handle. This is why he was the most feared person in the world for a long time. Nearly two decades in fact. 

Richard Schaefer Moving to the Money Team

Romours coming out of Las Vegas indicate Richard Schaefer might be joining the money team soon. Schaefer was seen sitting in the front row behind Mayweathers corner during his second bout to Maidana. Schaefer is involved in a $50 million lawsuit with Oscar De La Hoya. De La Hoya and team are claiming Schaefer didn't act in the interests of Golden Boy, when he put Al Haymons fighters on cards without signing them to contracts.

Schaefer could be an interesting addition to the money team. However it is rather distasteful by Mayweather to get rid of Leonard Ellerbe which is expected to happen by the time of his next fight in May. 

Were Ali and Frazier Real Enemies? Did they reconcile by old age?


Yes Ali and Frazier generally hated each other during their professional careers. By the time both were elderly they began to get on, speaking to each other at event and communicating. I think Ali could have done a lot better in most circumstances with Frazier as he did go out of his way to annoy Frazier often. In saying that they produced some of the greatest fights. Ali’s speed was nullified by Fraziers famous left hook. They both had courage and power, speed and ring poise in an abundance. Both are living legends and their fights will be watched and remembered for centuries to come.

Nonsense from Both Sides. Arum and Mayweather are the reasons for No Mega fight with Pacquiao.

Let me say the fighting between Mayweather and Arum and bickering which has gone on between both sides over the past decade is childish and is the sole reason why the mega fight has never happened. Mayweather and Arum have enough wealth, the only thing standing in the way from this mega fight from happening are their egos. And their egos are so big that this fight will never happen. Even if Mayweather vs Pacquiao happens now it will break all kinds of records, however it still won't be as big as if it happened a couple of years ago. Both fighters missed out on a lot of money, due to the stubborness of both Mayweather and pacquiao.

Amir Khan vs Kell Brook. Why The Fight Should Happen Next

Amir Khan vs Kell Brook needs to happen next the fight is worth a lot of money. To all parties involved and the fight is rather evenly matched. I think the winner of this fight can then go on to fighting Mayweather in the next bout. That would make the future bout bigger than if the bout was to happen soon. Ideally if the winner fought mayweather after, that bout would be huge. Khan vs Brook would be shown on HBO or Showtime and their will be interest globally for this bout. I think this would be one of the best match ups for an ageing mayweather. 

Mayweather vs Maidana 2 Does 925 000 Buys. According to Kevin Iole.

Mayweather vs Maidana 2 has done well at the pay per view. Selling around 925 000 units according to Kevin Iole. It is rare a rematch sells more then the first fight so this is a good result for both fighters and all promotion entities involved. This is good for boxing given the run of poor pay per view performances this year. The big effect on pay per view sales this year is Mayweather and Pacquiao not fighting eachother and this has damaged the sports reputation over the past few years. 

Joe Frazier vs Mike Tyson. The Brawl of All Brawls. Tyson vs Frazier Prediction?

So who would win a fight between Joe Frazier and Mike Tyson. This would be one of the greatest fights ever seen if these two fought each other during their prime. We have two brawlers, both with outstanding power. Both with one punch power. And both with good, but not the best chins. Appealing enough to have several knockdowns each. 

I predict a middle to late round stoppage. To me i am not sure who would win, but lean slightly towards a prime Tyson. So I will go with Tyson by KO/TKO. 


I can also see arguments for Frazier winning this bout.

Mayweather and Ellerbe part ways. Feel Bad For Ellerbe.

It seems as though Floyd Mayweather and Leonard Ellerbe are parting ways. For all the good Leonard has done for Mayweathers career I find this a bit poor from Mayweather. Ellerbe has done a lot of good work throughout Mayweathers career and Floyd is now a superstar and Leonard had a big role in getting him to that level. I would have liked to see them both work together up until Floyds retirement however that is not going to happen. It seems as though Floyd is on the verge of splitting up with Raul Garcia also. 


Rocky Marciano vs Mike Tyson. Now Thats One Of The Greatest Match Ups Ever.

Styles Make fights. And I would have wanted to see Mike Tyson vs Rocky Marciano. Marciano had a steel chin and Tyson had unbelievable power. Marciano also had unbelievable power. If Marciano could see off Tyson early, I think Marciano would have scored a late knockout win or points win. Tyson did have a chance at an early KO, however Marciano was rarely troubled in his career. In my opinion. I have Marciano winning that fight by KO. 


Ali Vs Tyson Who Would Have Won? Ali UD Or Tyson KO?


An interesting fantasy match up I am always asked about is who would have won between a prime version of Muhammad Ali and a prime version of Mike Tyson. For me I have always stayed with Ali by decision. I think Ali's feet and speed and long reach would have been able to keep Tyson away for 12 rounds. 

I also think Ali's defensive skills could have avoided a majority of Tysons power punches. In saying that it only would take one punch from Tyson to win the fight so I can see why people think prime Tyson could have won by KO. However its important to note that Ali had a great chin and he stood up to Foremans power all night. So I would have to go with Ali by UD, unanimous decision, however I can see the arguments for Tyson winning by KO. 


If YOU ARE VIEWING THIS FROM TWITTER. PLEASE POST THE LINK TO THIS POST. ADD YOUR PREDICTION NEXT TO IT. WE WOULD APPRECIATE THIS. MORE OPINIONS THE BETTER. WE ARE A HOBBY SITE. THANKS

Victor Ortiz vs Brandon Rios. Make the fight Happen.

Victor Ortiz is back from a devastating knockout loss against Luis Collazo and he is speaking about a rematch with Mayweather. Realistically this isn't going to happen. A fight I would like to see Ortiz fight in, is against Brandon Rios. Before both of these fighters became professionals and early into their professional careers some serious bad blood existed between both these fighters. A documentary series like all access or 24/7 up until the fight would be great to watch and this will interest the fight fans. 

For me Rios and Alvarado have fought twice, and while both have been great fights, Im not that interested in the third fight right at this point. I think that fight can be made further down the line. 

Mayweather vs Pacquiao. Post Prime Current Versions. Who Wins?

For me both these fighters are past their prime. Mayweather seems to be fading a little quicker than Pacquiao. Pacquiao has recovered well after being knocked out cold against Marquez. Here are my predictions on who would have won, considering we will most likely never see this fight. 

Prime Version:

- Had 2 possible scenarios. Mayweather UD which was most likely. Or Pacquiao by late accumulation TKO. For me it was probably a 60-40 fight in Mayweathers favour. So Mayweather UD. 

Post Prime current versions. I have Pacquiao winning this by UD. Pacquiaos power isn't their anymore and neither is Mayweathers work rate. I expect Pacquiao would win a decision around 8-4

New Mike Tyson Angry Interview. Mike Tyson Snaps at Interviewer.

This post will show you some of the funniest Mike Tyson interviews. Mike Tyson recently snapped at a Canadian interviewer and I will post the video of this now. This is a reason why Tyson was such a large draw. His personality was so big and he was so intriguing for the casual sports fans and especially for the hardcore sports fans.

Mike Tyson was an articulate guy also. During his documentary he uses a lot of smart words to describe his feelings.


Amir Khan next Fight. Amir Khan vs Keith Thurman Who Wins?

Amir Khan vs Keith Thurman is a Welterweight contest I want to see. Both fighters were commentating at the Mayweather vs Maidana 2 fight. And both fighters came across educated and respresented the sport well. Thurman has significant power and he is a good thinker. Khan has the speed advantage and faster feet, however his chin could let him down against Thurman. Amir Khan vs Keith Thurman is the fight I want to see next in the Welterweight division. Make the fight for HBO. Will be great to watch. 

It is refreshing to see fighters like Amir Khan and Keith Thurman who conduct themselves professionally and interact with fans at a respectable level. 

George Foreman: One of the biggest punchers ever.

George Foreman is one of the biggest punchers boxing has seen. Foreman was such a big puncher he won a heavyweight title in his 20's, 30's, 40's & 50's. George Foreman beat Michael Moorer in his 50's from one punch. 

George Foreman battered Ali for 8 rounds before being knocked out in Zaire. Foreman tired considerably and Ali continued to resist the pressure and showed enormous courage to win the bout. This was one of Ali's greatest wins. 

Foreman vs Frazier was an absolute cracker of a fight in lead up. However once the bell rang. Foreman annihilated Frazier knocking him down 5 times towards a 2nd round KO. 

How Strong Was Mike Tyson and How Much Could Mike Tyson Bench Press?

Mike Tyson is still one of the most recognized sporting faces on the planet. It is hard to not recognize his massive face tattoo and his legend still lives on. How strong was Mike Tyson and how much could he bench are popular questions which are consistently asked by boxing and sports fans across the world. 

Mike Tyson could bench up to 500 pounds according to many stories across the internet. This doesn't suprise me, Tyson had huge shoulders, arms and total upper body mass. One of the biggest punchers the sport has seen. 

Mike Tyson is best known for:

- His crazy punching strength
- His dangerous personality

He was great to bring attention to boxing in many ways. 

Mayweather vs Maidana 2. Money Wins, however not the fan friendly fight we wanted.

Mayweather won his rematch with Maidana on the weekend however the fight failed to live up to expectations. Mayweather looked a little slower on his feet and he was reluctant to engage maidana in close quarters. Maidana looked a little out of shape and didn't have much past the 6th round. Maidana wasn't aggressive enough or wild enough to put Mayweather out of his comfort zone.

Mayweather has a few options for his next fight:

- Cotto at Middleweight. 
- Canelo rematch. 
- Amir Khan
- The fight I would like to see is mayweather against Keith Thurman.

Andre Dirrell? Endless Potential. Time For Andre Dirrell vs Andre Ward.

Andre Dirrell is one of the most talented fighters I have ever seen perform. His loss vs Carl Froch, in my opinion was wrong. I had him winning that fight by 2 rounds. He hurt Iron chinned Froch on numerous ocassions. What makes Dirrell special is he has supreme speed and high agility. 

I would like to see Direll vs Ward. However Im not sure if Andre Ward will fight again. Going at the rate he currently is. Andre Ward needs to try get out of the court case and get back to fighting as soon as possible. His inactivity will seriously hurt his career progression. Why not Andre Dirrell vs Andre Ward? The boxing fanatics have been wanting to watch that for years. 

J Leon Love Knocked Out. Who Does J Leon Love Fight Next?

Promising Super Middleweight fighting out of Mayweather promotions, Jay Leon Love was shockingly knocked out in the 3rd round of his showcase fight last week. The match making was terrible, it was a showcase fight and the opponent was a known puncher. For a showcase fight Mayweather Promotions should have gotten someone with no power. As a result J Leon Love's world title shot is a long way away. He will need to win the next few fights and try ensure this doesn't happen again. 

There is also sparring footage of J Leon Love getting hurt by Andre Dirrell. You can find that on youtube. Andre Dirrell is still one of the unknown talents in boxing.

Mayweather vs Maidana Gloves Controversy. Not happening again

If you are wondering whether the glove problem will arise for the Mayweather vs Maidana 2 bout. Then we can comftorably say that this won't be an issue for this fight. The reason is both sides have come to an agreement and will wear the powerlock glove. Mayweather has also mentioned this will be his 3rd last fight before retiring. However when he sees the money still left to be made, he will have trouble walking away from the sport. Being the biggest draw in the sport boxing may suffer once he retires, unless Canelo can pass on the role as the biggest icon in the sport.

Adrien Broner vs Emmanuel Taylor Review. Analysis of Broner vs Taylor.

Adrien Broner vs Emanuel Taylor Review This was a fantastic fight. I thought Taylor put in a great showing and Broner stepped up in the 2nd half of the fight. Broner has heart and a lot of courage, we saw this against Maidana and once again as the fight went on, Broner got stronger. 

Taylor was competitive until round 7, but then the hectic pace of the fight got to him. From here Broner coasted away, with a range of superior punches and constant work rate. Broner dropped Taylor in the 12th round. 

Broner looked good, however his flaws were also there for all to see. In the early rounds he simply wasn't active enough, a similar problem that he had against Maidana. Broner has power, but not enough power to throw minimal punches. 

Overall it was a fantastic fight. Emmanuel Taylor will be happy with his showing. Broner will be to. But the other top 140 pounders aren't frightened of Broner, like they were a couple of years ago. 

Cottos Performance vs Martinez? Rate How Good it Was. Cotto vs Martinez Video

Here is the full fight video to Cotto vs Martinez. As we can see Cotto demolishes Martinez. The question I ask is how impressive is this win by Cotto? It is a great win, but Martinez even from the beginning looked like he was having trouble with his knees. Cotto caught him early but Martinez looked old and never recovered. This was a great performance by Cotto, no doubt about that. But just how great was the performance? Out of 10 how do you rate this performance? I think it was worthy of an 8 out of 10, as Martinez was ravaged by injury for years before the fight and age seemed to finally catch up with Martinez. Leave a rating in the comment section on how well you think Cotto fought. 

Mundine vs Clottey Full Fight Video

Here is full fight video of Mundine vs Clottey. Clottey drops Mundine five times to win a wide unanimous decision. Clottey looked good in this fight and has potentially secured a bout with Canelo Alvarez after this win. 

Let me know what you thought of the fight in the comments section. Remember to also subscribe to our email subscription service. I will provide my opinion on the latest news and upcoming fights. Including my fight predictions. 

My Prediction For Mayweather vs Maidana 2

My prediction for Mayweather vs Maidana 2 is for Maidana to win by Unanimous decision. Remember to save this post and post your prediction in the comment section. We can then come back and see who got the right prediction. At 38 I think Mayweather won't be as fresh this time out and Mayweather could walk him down and cause serious problems in the 2nd half of the fight. 

Michael Katsidis Arrested for Burglary

Bad news overnight is that Michael Katsidis has been arrested for burglary. I have found information on the topic at the following URL. http://www.boxingforum24.com/showthread.php?p=16504502

We hope Michael Katsidis can get his life in order again and fights to the best of his potential. Michael has dealt with a lot over the past few years including the death of his brother. Hopefully Michael can re-unite with Brendan Smith and possibly recover to win a world title. 

Mayweather vs Maidana 2 Final Press Conference Video.

The Mayweather vs Maidana 2 final press conference video will be more explosive then the first fight. The first fight didn't sell well on PPV and Mayweather and Maidana will be doing everything possible to make sure this fight sells better. Expect a fight at the final press conference or weigh in to get attention across the world. 

This fight should be an absolute cracker and this final press conference video should be interesting. It will be good to see how calm Mayweather is. Maidana may have really affected Floyd this time, however this is unlikely. 

Pacquiao vs Algieri What Can We Predict?

Well this fight is extremely risky for Pacquiao. Don't expect him to have an easy time dealing with Algieri. Algieri is a tall, lanky counter puncher. Who brings no name recognition to the fight. As a result Pacquiao and Algieri are having to promote this PPV fight by continually bringing up Floyd Mayweather Juniors name at the press conferences.

I can see Pacquiao winning this convincingly possibly through winning every round due to activity. I can't see him stopping Algieri. I can also see this being a nightmare fight for Pacquiao. Algieri could potentially pull off a major upset if he fights defensively and tries to box for 12 rounds and not engage Pacquiao.

Mayweather vs Maidana Weigh In Video.

Expect Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana to weigh in under the welterweight limit on Friday. Both are ultimate professionals who wouldn't risk severe financial penalties by coming in over weight. Both will come in close to the 147 welterweight limit and Floyd Mayweather might come in a couple of pounds under, as he normally does. 

Unofficial scales showed Maidana had a 17 pound advantage in fighting weight, before entering the ring in the first fight. This weight difference is substantial and Mayweather can make this extra weight count by fighting on the inside and holding as much as possible. 

This should be an interesting fight and is definitely worthy of the mega fight status that it is current achieving.

Mundine vs Rabchenko. Prediction and Analysis.

Mundine at 39 years of age is still fighting and he is now taking on undefeated Rabchenko on the 13th of November in Melbourne, Australia. Mundine looked terrible in his last fight with Clottey, going against boxing logic and wearing sand shoes to his Junior Middeweight bout. Clottey dropped Mundine five times in a great performance which may get him a shot at Canelo Alvarez. Clottey vs Alvarez could turn out to be a good fight, depending upon which Joshua Clottey turns up. If the Clottey that fought Pacquiao turns up it could bore the local fans. 

Rabchenko has power and is undefeated and a win could spell the end of Mundines career. Mundine lost momentum, constantly moving down in weight which goes against all boxing logic. He lost his power moving down in weight and this led to his demise. I am expecting Rabchenko to win this one through stoppage. 

Mayweather vs Maidana 2. Boxing Analysis & Prediction.

Welcome to The Boxing Kingdom . 

Mayweather vs Maidana 2 is upon us this weekend. My pick for this fight is Maidana by Unanimous Decision. At 38 Mayweather may have seen his best days in the ring and I think he is definitely showing signs of age. His last performance was fantastic, however the crispness of his punching doesn't seem to be there. 

He is still elite, but I think he has dropped around 15-20% over the past few fights and Maidana should be able to outpoint him if he keeps his aggressive style going. However if Mayweather decides to fight defensively, then he is giving himself the best chance to win even at 38 years of age. 


Prediction : Maidana UD Mayweather.
