Stephen Espinoza, vice president of Showtime Sports, the highly anticipated junior welterweight collision between Danny Garcia (26-0, 16KOs) and mandatory challenger Lucas Matthysse (34-2, 32KOs) is one possible option for the Floyd Mayweather vs Saul "Canelo" Alvarez undercard, headlining a huge Showtime pay-per-view event on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"The last time [Floyd fought], we had a big fight with Abner Mares and Daniel Ponce de Leon [as the co-feature]. We want a strong undercard [for September], not just a good undercard. We will have at least one big fight [on that card]. In May we had Mares with Ponce, and it was a great fight. We want to do another great fight. We are discussing several possibilities and Lucas Matthysse vs. Danny Garcia is one of them," Espinoza said.

According to Russian promoter Vladimir "????????" Hryunov, HBO has expressed interest in televising the long awaited heavyweight showdown between WBA/WBO/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) and mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 18KOs), which takes place on October 5th at the massive Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Moscow, Russia.

Hryunov and his partners secured the promotional rights after putting down a crunching figure of $23 million dollars to win the WBA's purse bid. The fight was finalized earlier this week.

"I can confirm that HBO has expressed interest in televising the fight between Klitschko and Povetkin, which is going to be one of the biggest boxing events in many years. Me and my partners are ready to discuss this possibility with [HBO Sports President] Ken Hershman," Hryunov told BoxingScene.com.

Hryunov and his partners are ready to hold discussions with major televsion networks from all over the world. They want Klitschko-Povetkin to be televised by as many countries as possible.

@mmaencyclopedia: Golden Boy and Showtime spent as much on the press tour for Canelo-Mayweather as UFC spent on reported fighter salary for UFC 160. Phone Post 3.0

I want Ruslan vs Alvarado. This will make me very happy.

If I'm Mike's manager that's the last fight I'd take. He got buckled by a Rios jab in their rematch. Doesn't bode well for his chances with Ruslan. Ruslan isn't well known enough to make the financial rewards worth the risk for Alvarado imo.

Dude's never been down in his career.
Ruslan is damn exciting but he literally never beat anyone close Alvarado's class.
Its a fun fight, I hope it happens. I'll take Alvarado in a close dec.
It will be fun to watch. No doubt but I don't see Alvarado making the final bell. Phone Post

WOW that would be an amazing co-main, probably the best I can remember for boxing.
If they could add Gonzalez vs Mares as well I would pay 150$ for it.

What other matches could they add?
Broner vs maidana?
Peter Quillan vs ???


Also seems like a good platform to open the show with a Deontay Wilder fight. Get some people excited about American boxing.

50 Cent Facing Five Charges in Alleged Spat With Ex
 

by David P. Greisman
 
You wouldn’t normally be reading about a rapper’s criminal case on this boxing website. But when that rapper is 50 Cent, who is also a boxing promoter…
…well, that’s when we bring you the news that Curtis Jackson is facing five criminal charges stemming from an argument he had on June 23 with an ex-girlfriend in Los Angeles.
According to CNN.com, the 37-year-old is accused of “one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism.” The charges were announced on July 3.
The alleged victim is a woman with whom Jackson had been in a relationship for three years. They have a child together.
Jackson is accused of causing approximately $7,100 in damage, which included chandeliers, furniture, a television and a lamp. And prosecutors say that when the woman locked herself behind a door, Jackson allegedly kicked the door open, striking and injuring her in the process.
Jackson is set to promote a show on Hartford, Conn., as part of this week’s episode of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights.” It has been billed as “50 Cent’s Birthday Bash.” He’ll be turning 38 on Saturday.

Gents,

I'm pretty fuckin sleepless tonight and I've got the day off today obv. I need some pre 1980 boxers outside of the obvious golden Heavy's. Some good fights from the lower weight classes would be nice. Been on some rough times and could use some new fights and brush up on some boxing history.

Fire away if anyone wants to throw some old names/fights out there

It really is. I don't post in here as I'm just getting back into boxing again and there's not much I can contribute. No name calling over disagreements on who will beat who, just people dropping knowledge. This thread is amazing. Phone Post 3.0

Literal Proof of the respect of Bonds thread

We had a troll stop in a few times a while back and drop the usual 'this thread is full of bullshit and terrible opinions'. He was met with a few posters actually telling him he was welcome in the thread, but to clean that ish up. Came back in with the same bs and was asked to leave then ignored/Bonds threw out some news articles over him to drown him out. Every other thread that seems to result in a 7pg horrifying to read bro argument.

Plus we have our patroling mod of the thread Pharochuck, he's like Mills Lane used to be when he was involved in mediating pre-fight negotiations for fight contracts between camps (perfect example Barrera-Hamed walk out time/glove size negotiations)
