I'm worried that the Mayweather undercard is going to suck. Abner Mares is fighting on a different day. So is Leo Santa Cruz. Matthysse vs. Garcia won't be on that card either. Alexander vs. Khan isn't till December. Who the heck is left to put on it? Maidana?

--Chakhkiev just got knocked out. I thought he was a lock for the future king of the cruiserweights. He still might be if he regroups but his chin and stamina issues have been exposed

--Looking forward to Bika vs. Periban tomorrow. Should be a good scrap. It’s a joke though that Andre Ward was stripped of the title they are fighting for. He remains the real super middleweight champion until someone beats him in the ring.

-- Broner is going to kill Paulie, it won’t even be competitive. And it won’t prove a thing. Pablo Cesar Cano beat Malignaggi too in my eyes. Big f’n deal.

--Seth Mitchell vs. Jonathan Banks should be fun. Hoping Mitchell wins, even though he is limited he brings some excitement to the American heavyweight scene.

yea they have Mares scheduled against Jhonny Gonzalez in Carson, things change though.

the only little suprise I'd get from Broner/Paulie if Broner actually stops Paulie, that would be a shock.

I think Broner is going to stop Pauli.

Put Maidana vs Broner as c0-main for Canelo vs Floyd.
Thats good for everyone involved.

Arum Explains Handling of Marquez-Bradley Drug Testing

By Luis Sandoval

Despite the battle going on with Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley regarding the random drug testing and 10 pound rehydration clause, Bob Arum was able to shed some light on how the drug testing will be conducted for this fight.

All major fights that have incorporated random style drug testing up until now have used an outside agency with either USADA or VADA getting the call. Arum has long told this scribe that he never believed the promoter should be involved and it should be the commission who should be in charge of having the testing done should the fighters request it. Top Rank’ CEO and founder’s stance has not changed and in fact, he will finally put his plan into use.

“The drug testing is going to be done random drug testing run by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. It’s going to be as stringent as any drug testing of USADA and VADA but it will be done under a legitimate regulatory authority. Not the promoter, not somebody that works for the promoter; but the state commission and they have agreed. They will get all the reports and everything” Arum would inform BoxingScene.

The furthest Arum will be involved in the testing is footing the bill in order for the state commission to be able to have the testing administered. He will not be receiving any reports or results from the lab as those will go directly to the commission and if a positive test is found, the commission will rule on the matter.

“It’s wrong for the promoter to be involved - except to pay for it - and its wrong for these organizations without any authority to be doing it because all you do is cause confusion. Now God forbid somebody comes up positive and the commission is handling it then the commission rules whatever way the commission rules” said Arum.

In essence, the state commission will take the place of USADA or VADA and have the samples drawn and tested at their own labs. It was pointed out to Arum by Gabriel Montoya that some of the commissions - in this case Nevada- use labs that don’t test as extensively and for substances that other labs used by VADA do.

“So maybe they'll use another lab. They said to me, as long as I pay for it, they will do testing as extensive if not more so than those organizations do. If that means using another lab, they have no contracts with the labs they are they are using [so they can use other labs].”

There’s a huge conflict of interest with promoters being the ones contracting the agencies and getting the results with the way things are currently done. Arum’s way of doing things seems like a good solution as it all falls solely on the commission.

“This is the only solution for this drug testing. Otherwise there is no solution. Otherwise you have crazy sh*t like what happened in Brooklyn with Erik Morales because there's no state authority. I'm a lawyer; I understand what state authority means. Now, the commission talks on the basis of state authority. It’s a legally authorized regulatory body and they have to handle everything regarding a fight. And if the fighters want drug testing, they're the ones that should do it. They can't do it half ass; they have to do it real”.

Judah: Mayweather Chops Guys Up Like Canelo

By Keith Idec

NEW YORK — Zab Judah doesn’t think Canelo Alvarez is capable of upsetting Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Judah and Mayweather are friends, but the former welterweight and junior welterweight champion also has first-hand knowledge of just how difficult it is to defeat Mayweather, who out-pointed Judah seven years ago in Las Vegas. And Judah just doesn’t think Alvarez has what it takes to become the first fighter to beat boxing’s pound-for-pound king, even though Alvarez is 13 years younger than Mayweather and will own a noteworthy weight advantage once the bell rings Sept. 14 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“I don’t see a big chance for Canelo,” Judah said Thursday at Barclays Center, before a news conference for the Paulie Malignaggi-Adrien Broner welterweight title fight. “Yeah, he’s a good fighter. He’s strong, he comes forward, he’s aggressive. But I think that kind of style is tailor-made for Floyd. He chops guys up like that. I think if that Canelo, right there, comes to the table, he’ll get chopped up.”

Las Vegas’ Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) and Mexico’s Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KOs) will begin an 11-city, nine-day tour to promote their pay-per-view fight Monday in Manhattan.

The first news conference on the tour will start at 3 p.m. ET in Times Square and is open to the public, free of charge. Fans are urged to arrive at the pedestrian walk on Broadway, between 46th Street and 47th Street, by 2 p.m.

"I don’t see a big chance for Canelo,” -Judah.

As long as Floyd hasn't changed anything with his camp since his last fight, i.e. having his father in his corner, then it should be a very one sided affair, Canelo will get the best boxing lesson of his life.

When he's with his father its all about defense, when Floyd is all about defense he's almost untouchable. When Floyd has left his father behind in the past we see a less focused Mayweather on being the "perfect" text book boxer, digressing into more of a fighter/brawler mentality, not by much but enough to give Canelo the opportunity he needs.

So I hope his dad is still in his corner. Phone Post 3.0

"it's a good possibility" says Judah about a rematch with Garcia. Just throwing out that rumor.

I though Judah was going to fight Alvarado next.
Garcia NEEDS to fight Matthysse next, otherwise turn your belt in ya hoe.

Looks like Zab Judah (42-8, 29KOs) will return to the ring in October at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the multi-division world champion told Boxingscene.com on Friday afternoon.

Judah was present at the Paul Malignaggi-Adrien Broner weigh-in at the steps of Borough Hall in Brooklyn.

Judah is coming off of a close 12 round unanimous decision loss at the hands of unbeaten Danny Garcia on April 27th, also at the Barclays Center.

No word yet on who Judah will likely face in October.

Chisora Calls Scott a Slave, Scott Calls Chisora a F****t

By Edward Chaykovsky

In a wild, heated and offensive conference call - heavyweight Dereck Chisora and Malik Scott were slinging the kind of trash talk to make fighters Adrien Broner and Paulie Malignaggi blush. Chisora faces Scott on July 20th at Wembley Arena. Chisora is no stranger to controversy - including arrests for alleged assaults, slapping the face of Vitali Klitschko, spitting water in the face of Wladimir Klitschko, engaging in a press conference brawl with David Haye and kissing an opponent at a weigh-in.

In one of the many exchanges, Chisora yelled - “July 20th you are mine. Your ass is mine. I’ve told you, you’re going to come here as a slave, I’m gonna slave you - that’s what I’m doing right now. Yeah, you’re gonna make me money on TV, make me a big payday. You just come and get your money."
 

Scott fired back - "You kiss men. You kiss men. He’s a f****t.” "You’re known for doing everything outside the ring, you’re not known for nothing in the ring. You take good asswhooping for a living buddy, you kiss men at weigh-ins, you’s a f****t where I come from. I'm going to f*** you up. You're not going to do sh*t to me.”

Chisora wants to know why Scott has a problem with men kissing men, asking his American opponent - “have you got a problem with that, have you got a problem with that? He talks a good game like all Americans. But they don’t deliver. The only one who talks a good game and delivers is Floyd Mayweather.”

Chisora also promised to kiss Scott prior to their fight.

I don't want to make an ignorant prediction but I view this fight in light of the Khan v Malignaggi fight. Khan was on Paulie pretty well that night with his punching, and Adrien is a better/more technical puncher than Khan. I don't like this one for the Magic Man

agreed, and there's a few questions still on Broner, stamina and chin...if Paulie can survive, we'll see how Broner looks late.

PRELIMS are on ShoXe right now

Just caught Warren fight. LOL at his opponent. Comes out and says 'if its not 6 rounds we aren't fighting'....commission jumps up on ropes.....within 5 seconds he's getting ready to fight. Gets KO'd by Warren in 2nd. Nasty straight left hands, Fuentes his opponent was very stationary

Sakio Bika is giving this clumsy white boy a chance at a knockout. Bika should take this fight easy.
