Martinez Had Lingering Knee Issues, DiBella Confirms                                                                                                                                               Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=64981#ixzz2RtWPIWbp

Sergio Martinez was indeed still hobbled by a past knee injury going into his April 27 defense of his middleweight championship against Martin Murray, according to Martinez’s promoter, Lou DiBella, who confirmed the lingering issues in an interview with Dan Rafael of ESPN.com.

While Martinez won Saturday by unanimous decision, he was given a tough fight by Murray and often looked less mobile than he usually appears in the ring. Martinez suffered torn ligaments in his right knee during his win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. last September and had surgery in November, just five and a half months before the Murray fight.

“He was never fully recovered from the knee surgery,” DiBella told Rafael. “The knee was OK early in the training camp, but it wasn’t perfect. But with three weeks left in camp, it got much worse. He probably would have postponed the fight if it was in a normal arena [instead of in front of tens of thousands at a soccer stadium in his native Argentina]. He was damaged goods going in against Murray.”

DiBella also gave credit to the performance of Murray, who suffered his first pro loss and is now 25-1-1 with 11 knockouts.

Martinez improved to 51-2-2 with 28 knockouts. DiBella tweeted shortly after Saturday’s fight that Martinez — who also broke his left hand against Murray in what the promoter told Rafael was a different spot than the fracture he suffered against Chavez — will likely not fight again for the remainder of this year.

@thatkick and barry

see Bernard and Larry's famous post fight moment (Bernard's holding his son btw)

Larry - "Well Bernard it seems tonight you got paid for not doing much....Jim?"

Bernard - "Larry let me tell you something you get paid everytime you step behind the microphone for not doing much"

**I have a thread with videos of the funniest moments in boxing, will link it for you in a min. John Ruiz trainer is absolutely histerical in it.

A year off = Sergio Martinez should just retire. His reflexes are getting slower and slower and his lack of boxing fundamentals is costing him in every fight now. He's tough, gutty and can crack but he's getting touched more and more because he's unable to evade punches like he used to. Hang em up champ. Please. I've got a soft spot for Argentine fighters as my father's family is from there. Would hate to see him taking unnecessary beatings.

Nah, he seemed to do just fine when his pops was in his corner back in the day. They are both as dysfunctional as they come, but they have this boxing thing down to a sweet science. Pure business when its fight time.

At 36, Floyd isn't gonna change. Plus, he's as smart as they come in the ring. I doubt the change will make any difference.

i'm going to go out of context and say it does affect Floyd, in a positive way.

there's a myth out there that Floyd has a tough time early with southpaws. People will bring up Corley, Judah, Ortiz, etc. I don't want to go as far as saying southpaws are trouble for Mayweather, because he's made any adjustment if nescessary in every case. I just think Floyd will be able to hit his groove alot faster this time around with a combination of Roger and Floyd Sr. there.

His pops was always shouting instructions close by in the crowd, more noticable in recent fights. Sometimes it was commented by Lampley that Jr would have someone check on what Sr. was saying and report in to the corner (sorta like Roy Jones and Derrick Gainer). If that's all true he doesn't have to worry about that anymore, and whatever advice that was coming in (if it was different than Roger's) is already right in front of him.

Floyd is at the point of his career where he doesn't really need corner instructions. I'm sure his dad and uncle will give him a few pointers leading up to the fight...but he usually makes the adjustments on the fly.

JMM wanted testing for the the fourth Pac fight, but they turned it down.

Mayweather is going full heel, you know the fight is right around the corner.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65027#ixzz2S0sn88gq

by Rick Reeno

In an earlier story on BoxingScene.com, WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) explained his reasons for believing that Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) is a hypocrite. Mayweather does not believe Guerrero is following the religious image that he portrays on the cameras. Guerrero found himself in a bit of trouble a few weeks ago, when he was arrested for possession of a firearm at a New York City airport.

“If you go back and look at what I said. Look at what I said and then you will know [why I believe Guerrero is a hypocrite]. First you got the guy driving on people’s lawns with his truck, going crazy and doing doughnuts on people’s lawns. Then he’s going on the 700 Club and talking to kids, but then he’s carrying a gun. If God got your back, then why are you carrying a gun? I was telling a friend of mine about that the other day. My friend Shawn, and I was saying the same thing – if God got your back then why are you even carrying a gun,” Mayweather said.

“I feel bad for what his wife went through. I feel bad for her. That’s not a good thing at all. I don’t think that anybody should have to go through anything like that. But every week he wants sympathy for that, but on the other hand he said God got his back but he’s got Marylyn Monroe pictures all up on his walls in his house. These are things that I just don’t understand.”

Guerrero said Mayweather needed to brush up on his knowledge of the bible.

"That just makes me laugh. It makes me laugh because it shows me how much he knows about the bible. We are all hypocrites here. We're all sinners. That’s the way it is. There was only one person who was perfect in this world and that was Jesus Christ - and nobody else. So we’re all hypocrites, we all make mistakes, we're only human. For him to say that, 'you're a hypocrite' - it makes me laugh. He’s so worried about his image and about my image - he's saying 'Guerrero is a hypocrite, he's getting sympathy off his wife ' and this and that. It makes me laugh," Guerrero said.

"It just shows where his head is at. I don't know if he’s trying to paint a picture for everybody that he’s a great guy or he’s feeling guilty about something and he’s trying to bag on me about Marilyn Monroe pictures. It's a laughable."

Mayweather Explains How He Stays on Weight, No Diet                                                                                                                                           Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65013#ixzz2S0tZcWAv

By Miguel Rivera

WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) has managed to stay at 148-pounds for the last month, as he preapres for Saturday's fight with Robert "The Ghost' Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Mayweather says he made a career decision a few years ago to start fighting at his walking weight, which is around 150-pounds. Because of his great metabolism and the countless hours of work that he generates in the gym, Mayweather is able to eat just about anything without worrying about weight gain.

"At one time I realized that I have the skills and the sharp mind to still beat these guys [at the higher weights]. So why would I hurt myself just to get down in weight and then go up another 20-pounds [overnight] or blow up another 30-pounds. I've been able to handle big guys my whole life. Like I said before, I don't really feel like [making weight will be a problem in my career]. I'm able to eat four times a day, five times a day. My metabolism burns it right off," Mayweather said.

"Like today, I can go eat pizza and I can go eat Big Macs but what you have to realize is that I work harder than any other fighter. When we're at the boxing gym, we don't have a bell. You don't hear a bell. When we box and we spar, we try to get the toughest competition, the roughest competition."

Martinez Admits Road Back Will Be Tough                                                                                                                                                                Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=64989#ixzz2S0uYvdW2

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) admits the road to recovery will be tough. This past Saturday night he won a close decision over British contender Martin Murray, but came away with several injuries that are likely going to keep him out of the ring until next year. Martinez fractured his left hand and also damaged his surgically repaired right knee.

The 38-year-old boxer does not believe the recent developments are an indication that his career is coming to a close.

Martinez stated: - “An injury is always hard to overcome but I don’t think this means the end of my career. I will have to work very hard to recover. I walked away as the champion with one hand. I would give life to see all of my Argentineans happy.”

It's crazy how JMM (and Memo Heredia) will end up doing random drug tests while Pacquiao still to this day hasn't done them. LOL
