yea $70 is crazy, add the fact Floyd didn't sell the fight that much..and the switch to Showtime which is shown in less homes than HBO, hurts too. It's good for fight fans, Floyd may be guaranteed his millions per fight, but if he wants that revenue and buys to stay consistant, he'll need to fight the Canelo's, Martinez, and maybe even Manny still.


i'm comfortable with 12-15lbs as far as rehydrating goes but when it gets to the 20's (Chavez Jr) we're pushing it.

I agree. If the confirmed numbers are indeed that rough, a step up in named opponents has to come. I'm a bit shocked as I did think he would pull just over a million. If Manny somehow gets on the table with Arum involved, there's a TON of story for them to sell at this point in exchange for whatever decrease in value the fight has experienced IMO. I really don't see that happening on Showtime though, no idea how that would end up getting made.....so many hoops to jump through.

BoxingScene.com has confirmed that heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder was arrested Saturday morning in Las Vegas and is facing a felony count of domestic violence-strangulation.

Police were called at about 7:30 a.m. on May 4 for a reported battery at a hotel in the 3700 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard, an area that is known as the famed Las Vegas Strip. Security officers there had a male and a female in custody, according to Laura Meltzer, a spokeswoman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

The woman had swollen eyebrows, a possibly broken nose, a cut lip, and red marks on her neck, according to officers. She was taken to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada and treated for her injuries.

Wilder was booked into Clark County Detention Center. He’s since been released.

The 27-year-old fighter is coming off his 28th knockout win in 28 fights: an April 27 first-round knockout of aged Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison.

Jermain Taylor vs Les Sherrington in Play For The Fall?                                                                                                                                             Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65264#ixzz2SebSXuUU

Today WBF middleweight World Champion and current WBO world number 8 Les ‘Lock n load’ Sherrington announced his opponent for his upcoming June 7 main event bout. Sherrington, who will headline the much, anticipated “Smithy brings the big fights 4” announced today that he will be taking on Argentine middleweight Jorge Dario David Gomez.

Sherrington said, “I look forward to this challenge with Jorge, it’s been over 8 years since I’ve fought someone taller than me and he has a great knockout record. I feel fighting the taller fighter will bring more to the table for me to enhance my boxing skills. This is a new challenge for me.

I’m not looking past Gomez and respect his knockout percentage however, I want a brilliant performance and to win convincingly and hopefully come out unscathed so I can back up with a match up with American legend Jermain Taylor on the Australian shores, possibly in late August or September.”

The luring of Jermain Taylor to Australia isn’t just propaganda with the proof of Sherringotn’s management’s luring ability on display last year, when they brought legendary Mexican knockout king, Luis Ramon ‘Yuri Boy’ Campas to the Gold Coast convention and exhibition centre.

Sherringtons trainer/manager Brendon Smith said, “I’m very excited about Les Sherrington fighting in my home town. Les and I joined forces over a year ago and worked out of Smithy’s gym here in Toowoomba and now to be able to give the opportunity to our local fans to see him fight in the flesh, I am very proud of. Gomez brings a very good challenge to us and I look forward to Les fighting the bigger guy.”

Smith further stated “With that being said, a good performance here with Gomez, I would like Jermain Taylor next. Our team brought Yuri Boy Campas to Australian soil for a major fight on the Gold Coast last year and I would explore the possibilities of bringing in Jermain Taylor for another major show. If we cannot lure Taylor to Australia, then I’m more than happy to discuss the possibilities of the fight to take place in America. This is a very big reality as Jermain just recently come out in a post-fight interview and stated he wanted a top 10 opponent in the world, as we are currently number 8 in the WBO, we have something he asked for.”

Team Pacquiao: Marquez and Bradley Missed Their Shot                                                                                                                                         Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65258#ixzz2SebvwMIY

By Rick Reeno

Michael Koncz, the adviser to eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs), tells BoxingScene.com that Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) and Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) missed their shot for a big pay day against the Filipino superstar.

Koncz told BoxingScene last week that Marquez passed on an offer of $13 million for a fifth fight with Pacquiao, while Bradley walked away from an offer of $6 million for a rematch. Koncz has serious doubts that Marquez and Bradley are getting paid any better to fight each other.

Marquez knocked out Pacquiao in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last December, while Bradley won a controversial twelve round split decision over Pacquiao last June.

As reported earlier, Pacquiao will return on November 23rd at the Venetian in Macau, against Brandon Rios (31-1-1, 23KOs). Marquez will face Bradley on September 14th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

If Pacquiao wins his fight, Koncz tells BoxingScene that his fighter is not even thinking about the Marquez-Bradley winner. They plan to pursue other opportunities in 2014.

"I don't even want to speculate. I gave Bradley and Marquez the opportunity to fight [Pacquiao right] now. I won't be manipulated into taking the winner out of that fight. They had their chance. I haven't discussed it with Manny yet, but I don't think Bradley and Marquez are on our radar anymore. I'll talk to Manny about that later on. Right now we are going to focuse on this fight. But I gave them the opportunity, Manny gave them the opportunity - which we felt were reasonable offers, and for whatever reason, right or wrong, they chose not to fight us - so let's all go on with our lives," Koncz told BoxingScene.com.

So I've heard that the hand injury Mike Alvarado needed surgery on was the result of a bar fight and not a training or ring injury. Man, I bet he's pissed with himself for losing a Pacquiao payday. Phone Post

JMM explains why he chose Bradley                                                                                                                                                                          Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=65306#ixzz2Sks9MqPX

By Ryan Burton

Shortly after Floyd Mayweather's unanimous decision victory over Robert Guerrero, Juan Manuel Marquez spoke to BoxingScene.com about his decision to face  WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley instead of a more lucrative fifth fight against Manny Pacquiao.  Marquez feels that his December 8th knockout of the Filipino Congressman more than sealed their series and that there is no need for another fight. He said that he couldn't say why Bradley turned down a rematch against Pacquiao but that he feels an argument can be made for why he won each of his four fights against Pacquiao.

"Everybody has their opinion.  To each his own.  I don't know why Bradley doesn't want to fight him.  I don't know his situation.  In my case we have already fought four times and I practically won all four.  The first time was a draw, the second time was a split decision and the third time was a majority decision where it was even more clear that I should have won.  In the fourth fight I left no doubt as to who won and that cleared up the first three fights," Marquez explained.

Marquez said that while money is important, his legacy and honor are more important and that is one of the reasons why he decided against facing Pacquiao again.

"That is true. Honor comes first.  My personal honor and the honor of my people come first.  The feeling that I have from that victory is very rewarding.  It is something I will keep for me the rest of my life.  Money isn't the most important factor," Marquez revealed.

The 39-year-old Marquez said that a world title in a fifth weight class would be very rewarding and would provide the motivation needed to get him to train at the highest level.  If Marquez were to capture a world title in a fifth weight class he would become the first Mexico born fighter to achieve that feat.  Marquez declined to say where such a victory would place him amongst Mexican all time greats.

"It is another motivation for me.  I want a fifth title in a different weight class.  It is a great motivation for me that would make me train hard.  I would love to achieve that but I need to work very hard because TImothy Bradley is a great fighter.  I don't know where I would rank.  That is up to you guys," Marquez told BoxingScene.com.

i'm going to go ahead and zero in on.....'that cleared up the first three fights'. No offense to JMM, he's great. But you had 36 rounds to clear it up like that.

 Sulaiman Advises Canelo To Fight Cotto                                                                                                                                                                   By Miguel Rivera

The President of the World Boxing Council, Jose Sulaiman, has advised WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs) to wait at least another year before challenging Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs). Sulaiman would rather see Canelo fight former three division champion Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30KOs). Canelo and Mayweather are both reportedly going to return on September 14th.

"Alvarez should have at least two more fights before going against Mayweather. Canelo needs more experience and in another year it would be a competitive fight. [To fight him] at this time, I would not advise it. [A fight against Cotto] would give him the opportunity to show his worth," Sulaiman said.

Actually, I think this was the one he had prior to Rios fight. He just waited until after the bout to get surgery and his rehab won't be completed in time for bout with Manny. Phone Post

I have the first two to Pacquiao and the 3rd/4th to JMM. JMM is a great fighter and I enjoy watching him fight, but i'm not feeling the 'I won em all, pretty much proved it'. IMO Pacman could've said 'technically i've beaten him 3 times, i'm moving on' after the 3rd. Controversy compared to a cold KO yes, but doesn't erase the first two for me.

By Jose Luis Camarillo & Salvador Rodriguez, notifight.com

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, middleweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs) dared England's Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11KOs) to fight him on August 3rd in Mexico City. The slated opponent is Brian Vera, but the Mexican boxer would like to face someone he believes is tougher.

Chavez wants to fight Murray for the WBC interim-middleweight title. WBC full champion Sergio Martinez won a close decision over Murray on April 27, but suffered several injuries that are likely going to keep him out of the ring until next year.

WBC President Jose Sulaiman would consider approving Chavez-Murray as an interim-title fight, depending on Martinez's medical status.

"First, what we need to do is to talk to Martinez and find out his medical condition, because a few days after the fight they won't know the full extent of the injury. It is better to wait and to find out the exact situation, but [Chavez-Murray] would be a good fight," Sulaiman said.
