Have them both. I originally got Showtime to watch Strikeforce more than anything else. They've been killing it the last couple years with boxing so it's worth the extra premium channels I had to get with it. Still prefer HBO though. Phone Post

Cliff Notes:

Fuck HBO, their commentary sucks.

Showtime made Andre Ward, HBO didn't want him in the beginning and now they're on his dick.

Garcia knocked Amir Khan out and still gets no respect.

GGG ain't shit, he can't speak English.

Angel Garcia isn't a racist

Zou Shiming isn't shit

Danny Garcia has been representing America and got spat on in the amateurs in other countries and gets no love in his own.

Pakistanis own all the gas stations, them and other foreigners don't fuck people of other races and make mixed babies.

Angel says we need a president like him Phone Post 3.0

Golden Boy Rules Out Mayweather For Trout-Lara Winner

 

by Jake Donovan

With any fight that takes place at 147 or 154 lb. these days, conversation is expected to quickly turn to what is in store for the winner. There are more lucrative options between these two weight classes than in all of the other divisions combined.

In order to get fighters like Austin Trout and Erislandy Lara to face each other, you would think there would exist the necessary advanced incentive for the winner. It’s a good thing neither of them need such massaging, because chances are there isn’t a major fight on that level in either fighter’s immediate future.

Select names were offered as possible future opponents for whomever comes out on top in their Dec. 7 showdown in Brooklyn. The biggest of them all, however, was immediately scratched from the list, despite the vacant belt at stake tied to said fighter.

“I don’t see Floyd Mayweather fighting at 154 (again) unless it’s really big,” Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer admitted in ruling out the sport’s best fighter and its biggest box office attraction as a realistic option for Trout or Lara. “It would have to be a fight for the undisputed middleweight or junior middleweight championship or something like that (to fight above 147).”

Mayweather became a unified champion at 154–and its recognized lineal world champion–with his win over Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in September. The bout netted the unbeaten pound-for-pound king two more belts, including the super version of the “regular” belt on the line for Trout and Lara in their upcoming showdown.

The likely scenario is for Mayweather to dump his alphabet belts at 154 upon announcing his next opponent, leaving the December 7 winner as a recognized titlist according to one sanctioning body. From there, the onus is on Golden Boy to line up the next fight.

Schaefer suggested the likes of recently crowned 154 lb. titlist Carlos Molina or even—against whom Trout dropped a competitive but poorly scored decision this past April—as more viable choices. The opponent for Mayweather’s planned May ’14 ring return remains unknown, but Trout and Lara are losing about as much sleep over that as they are about fighting anyone other than each other.

“I’m not focused on Canelo, all of my focus is on Lara,” insists Trout (26-1, 14KO), who hasn’t fought since April, the inactive peroid due to his efforts to free himself from former promoter Greg Cohen. “Whether Canelo takes the fight with the winner, that’s great. I don’t think he will, but if he does, that’s great. My whole focus is on Lara and to see him on his way out.”

The feeling is mutual as far as Lara is concerned, although he naturally has a different take on how December 7 will play out.

“My job first is to beat Austin Trout and then I will proceed to take on all comers,” states Lara (18-1-2, 12KO), who survived two knockdowns to stop Alfredo Angulo in 10 rounds this past June. My focus right now is to beat up Trout and shut him up.”

The 154 lb. showdown between Trout and Lara will air live on Showtime, in supporting capacity to the 147 lb. all-Brooklyn battle between Zab Judah and Paul Malignaggi.

Pacquiao and Drug Testing Four Years Later

By Dennis "dSource" Guillermo

It was late into the fall season of 2009. Manny Pacquiao had just vanquished Miguel Cotto and was well on his way to unanimously winning the Fighter of the Year Award across the board after nabbing titles in the junior welterweight and welterweight divisions in sensational fashion.

Immediately after bludgeoning and stopping Cotto in 12 rounds, a contingent of Pacquiao fans at the MGM Arena were in unison in chants of “we want Floyd!”

Pacquiao’s star was never brighter, and the boxing world was buzzing behind the exploits of the Southeast Asian jackhammer of a slugger who was tearing through the lower weight classes since arriving in the US scene in 2001.

With his legacy and place in boxing history set in stone, there was only one true challenge left for Pacquiao: Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

At the time, people were hyping it as potentially the biggest fight in boxing history with revenues estimated to be around nine figures. It was the perfect stylistic contrast between two of the greatest and most popular fighters in history, and the world couldn’t wait to see it.

But after reports that both men had agreed to fight each other, an unexpected wrench was thrown in the negotiations in the form of added drug testing requested by the Mayweather camp amidst accusations and questions regarding the legitimacy of Pacquiao’s victories after being unfairly linked to performance enhancing drugs without proof.

The issue spiraled out of control as lawsuits came flying immediately after, with Pacquiao crying foul over his name being dragged to the dirt, and Mayweather insisting on his suspicions.

The Pacquiao camp chose not to budge on Mayweather’s request for extra drug tests, and both fighters went about their careers separately as the public was forced to simply hope and wait for the two fighters to somehow come into terms and fight each other.
The multi-million dollar mega fight of a lifetime that the entire world was clamoring for could not be made because of a few ounces of blood and some extra random testing. That's what happens when ignorance prevails.

Fast-forward to today - almost four years after - Mayweather and Pacquiao have still yet to throw a single punch at each other, and the interest for what was once being hailed as “the fight of the century” is all but gone.

Mayweather is back on top as the world’s highest paid athlete and boxing’s biggest draw, while Pacquiao is reeling from a devastating knockout loss to his nemesis, Juan Manuel Marquez, and is fighting Brandon Rios in China in a couple of weeks to prove that he still has more fights left in his tank.

Ironically, the 34-year-old Philippine congressman has enrolled himself into extra drug testing under the supervision of VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency) for his fight against Rios.

"Yes, I was tested twice, so there is no problem," Pacquiao told the press two weeks ago in a media conference call, when asked about the VADA testing.

It's of note that before his loss last year to Marquez, Pacquiao had already publicly expressed his willingness to relent on his stance regarding extra drug testing to make the Mayweather fight happen.  Unfortunately, however, financials and the ongoing feud between the fighters' promoters added to the foil.

One positive that did come out from the Pacquiao-Mayweather saga is the amount of publicity that went behind Mayweather’s initial accusations against Pacquiao, which forced boxing to take a closer look into its drug testing practices, while concerned fans educated themselves on the specifics and nuisances of performance enhancing drugs and testing.

One of the prominent figures that came to surface during this period of inquisition is sports scientist Victor Conte. Conte, the infamous BALCO founder involved in the past decade’s doping scandal centered on baseball superstars like Barry Bonds and Jason Giambi, has become one of the most vocal anti-doping advocates in boxing.

Conte, who currently helps oversee the nutrition and scientific training of a long list of boxers such as Amir Khan, Edwin Rodriguez, Shawn Porter, Bruno Escalante, Marlen Esparza, Brandon Gonzales, Stan Martyniouk, Demetrious Andrade and Fernando Guerrero, and was critical of Pacquiao’s reluctance to adhere to random drug testing in the past, was pleased that the Filipino boxing icon finally came around and took the initiative together with Rios to ensure a clean fight, and take a step in the right direction for the sport.
“I'm really glad to see Pacquiao and Rios doing random VADA testing before their upcoming fight. It is important for the health and safety of the boxers, and it is also important for the fans of boxing to know that they both have been doing stringent testing,” Conte told this scribe in an interview.

“Regardless of who wins their fight, both Pacqiao and Rios should be applauded for doing their part to promote clean combat sport.”
Pacquiao had no complaints about weakening after giving out blood like he had said in the past, and reports of a glowing camp in his hometown of General Santos City has his fans excited once again.

Maybe an impressive win against Rios will finally lay to rest all the suspicions about Pacquiao being a dirty fighter. Maybe taking the VADA tests can also open doors to a future fight with Mayweather - then again, maybe not. But as far as Conte is concerned, taking the VADA tests definitely helps wipe suspicions, and continuing to do so while winning will only provide further vindication – regardless if the Mayweather fight ever happens or not.
“It would be foolish for Pacquiao or Rios to attempt to circumvent the VADA testing program,” Conte stated, and added, “Drug testing will never be completely foolproof. However, I believe that an effective random testing program for a period of time before a fight can serve as a deterrent and possibly effect the outcome of the contest.”

Interestingly enough, Pacquiao testing clean and taking these extra VADA tests haven’t gotten the same publicity as those of the baseless accusations he got about taking performance enhancing drugs years ago. The general public - whether it’s because his popularity has gone down after his loss to Marquez or simply because they never truly cared – seems indifferent as well.
Golden Boy Promotions, who backed Mayweather in his claims against Pacquiao about the issue, have dropped VADA testing themselves after a few of their cards were cancelled because of fighters like Andre Berto and Lamont Peterson failing their drug tests.

Conte likes the trend of top-level fighters like Pacquiao, Rios, Mayweather, and as well as others like Timothy Bradley, starting to adhere to extra testing before their fights, but ultimately wishes they could enroll in 24/7/365 (year-round random drug testing) to further ensure a clean sport.
With all the strength and conditioning coaches popping out of nowhere like wild mushrooms, stringent random drug testing has definitely become a necessity for combat sports where lives - more than just money, pride and wins - are at stake.

Perhaps Pacquiao vs. Mayweather wasn’t really the “fight of the century” after all. It was simply the preliminary bout to the main event, which is boxing’s war on doping.

New Boxing Reality Show Looms: More Details Surface

 

By Ryan Burton

In life there is always speculation on anything that is new and cutting edge. Questions will emerge such as is it real and will it happen? While the natural reaction from most is to doubt and almost to wish for failure, that is magnified ten fold in the sweet science of boxing.

Go back a few years and the question was asked, will Oscar De La Hoya's promotional company be successful?  The answer is obviously yes but it was a legitimate question at the time.

Roughly three weeks ago BoxingScene.com published information on what surely will be the biggest reality boxing show in television history.  Yesterday I met with the executive producer and director of the show. We met in Las Vegas at the M Resort.  They were in town along with their producing adviser, camera crew and assistants to wrap up details with some of the cast.

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Yoel Judah are on board as two of the three trainers for the aspiring fighters.  We can also say that there will be an appearance by 5-time world champion Zab "Super" Judah, his brother Joe, highly ranked cruiserweight contender and boxing analyst B.J. Flores, and former women's champion Christy Martin.  The show will be broadcast on a hot new cable channel that is growing rapidly and is currently available in over 35 million homes.

Former IBF junior middleweight champion Kassim Ouma will be at the tryouts for the 154 pound division.  Light heavyweight contender Ron Johnson is putting together the sparring for the show and today's big announcement is focused on the trainers.

This week the director is planning to sign Ruben Guerrero to be the third and final trainer.

This is only about one third of the star power that will appear on the show. Check BoxingScene.com shortly for a full interview with the executive producer Steven Marcano and the director Emilio Ferrari.

This show will undoubtedly be great for boxing.  It is a reality show that will star real, professional boxers fighting in real fights with guidance by real, world-class trainers.  The show will be built around the 140, 147 and 154 pound weight divisions.  The winner's of the tournaments in each weight division will then face a top 20 contender to see if they can realize their "Ring Dream".

Price vs. Chisora Purse Bid Won By Frank Warren
 

Promoter Frank Warren today won the purse bids for the big heavyweight clash between David Price and Dereck Chisora for the British title.
Finchley puncher Chisora is currently preparing for his European title defence against Matteo Modugno on Saturday 30th November at the Copper Box Arena.
Chisora has previously held the Lonsdale belt when he defeated Danny Williams in May 2010 to win the title and made a defence against Sam Sexton before losing it to Tyson Fury.
He's is in the best form of his career with three back-to-back stoppages this year against Hector Alfredo Avila, top American Malik Scott and winning the European title with a sensational performance against Edmund Gerber.
Chisora said, “I’m concentrating on the undefeated Italian Modugno right now and defending my European title is my priority, but I’m excited that I’ll be facing Price,”
“I do miss holding the British title though, it’s a beautiful belt and I want to win it again on the way to the world title.”
A date and venue will be advised within the two week deadline set by the BBBofC.

Hearn: Demetrius Andrade-Brian Rose Negotiations Begin

by David P. Greisman

Negotiations for a fight between newly crowned World Boxing Organization junior middleweight titleholder Demetrius Andrade and British contender Brian Rose have begun, according to a tweet from Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, which promotes Rose.

The parties have 30 days to make a deal or else the bout will go to a purse bid, Hearn tweeted.

Should it go to purse bid, the minimum amount for any bid would be $200,000, according to a letter sent out Nov. 12 by the WBO and posted on the sanctioning body’s website.

The WBO belt at 154 pounds had been vacated after then-titleholder Zaurbek Baysangurov got injured prior to a bout with Andrade. This past weekend, Andrade beat Vanes Martirosyan by split decision to pick up the belt.

The most recent WBO ratings from Oct. 17 had Martirosyan at No. 1, Andrade No. 2, Baysangurov at No. 3 and Rose at No. 4.

Andrade, 25, is now 20-0 with 13 knockouts. Rose, 28, is 25-1-1 with 7 KOs and is coming off a debatable split decision win over Javier Francisco Maciel on Oct. 26.

Hassan N'Dam Inks With Hyde, Fights on December 14

 

By Mike Coppinger

Middleweight contender Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam hasn't fought since losing his WBO middleweight title to Peter Quillin in Oct. 2012, but that will change next month.

N'Dam N'Jikam recently signed with manager Gary Hyde on Wednesday, and the Frenchman will return Dec. 14 against Anthony Fitzgerald (14-5, 4 KOs) in Barcelona, Spain, Hyde told BoxingScene.com on Wednesday.

The plan is for N'Dam N'Jikam, 29, to compete again in February in California, before setting his sights to world title fights. Hyde is best known for handling the career of junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux.

N'Dam N'Jikam (27-1, 17 KOs) was outboxing Quillin, but was dropped six times en route to a unanimous decision loss.

Trout, Lara Differ On Who Will Fight And Who Will Run

 

By Jake Donovan

Fighters like Austin Trout and Erislandy Lara are special breeds in that they both act upon claims of their willingness to take on all comers, when many others in and around the super welterweight division have avoided the two at all costs. In part, it would explain they’ve agreed to face each other on December 7 in Brooklyn, New York.

You would think from such similar bravery would come a common bond. However, their Showtime-televised bout, which serves as the co-feature to the all-Brooklyn clash between Zab Judah and Paul Malignaggi, has developed into a grudge match where they can’t seem – or don’t want – to agree on any given topic.

Both promise to carry the fight, while under the belief that the other will spend the duration of the bout on their bicycle. Neither seem to think very much of the other, beyond the obligatory appreciation for agreeing to the fight.

“The way it is today, it’s not necessarily the best fighting the best. We’re fighting each other because nobody wants to fight us,” Trout acknowledges of their upcoming vacant title fight.

The showdown with Lara marks his first piece of ring action since dropping a competitive decision to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez this past April. Trout was forced to spend the next several months mired in legal battles with promoter Greg Cohen, from whom he would eventually split once the lawyers sorted out all lingering issues.

For his first fight back, he encounters an opponent who thinks has him pegged, but whom Trout insists is completely in the dark when it comes to reading a scouting report.

“[F]or him to say that I have no balls, tells me he’s never watched me before,” Trout (26-1, 14KO) believes. “This fight is all about dealing with the opportunities that come your way and I’m going to take advantage.”

Lara (18-1-2, 12KO) hasn’t fought since his off-the-canvas injury stoppage win over Alfredo Angulo this past June. A major upset was in the works as the usually slick Cuban was down twice and caught up in a war, before forcing Angulo into submission due to a grotesquely swollen left eye out of which he could no longer see.

The bout was the closest that Lara came to a loss since his only actual defeat, a controversial decision in favor of Paul Williams in their July ’11 encounter. Most had Lara winning comfortably that night, but he still views his official lone conqueror as his most dangerous opponent to date, or at least much better than the one in the on-deck circle.

Angulo was coming for him and Angulo was touching him. It was fight or flight. Him being a fighter, he fought some but he also ran. He did both and was able to beat him.

“Austin Trout is an OK fighter. He’s nothing special and I believe he’s on his way out,” Lara views of Trout. “He says I have no heart. He will find out in the ring.

“The difference between Austin Trout and Paul Williams is that Paul Williams had balls. He was a big southpaw who would come out and attack you. Austin Trout just knows how to run.”

Interim lightweight titleholder Yuriorkis Gamboa was in the Miami-Dade County jail after being arrested Wednesday afternoon on two misdemeanor battery charges for domestic violence.

Gamboa was arrested for an incident with his ex-wife Dunia Martinez, the mother of two of his four children, according to Tony Gonzalez, Gamboa's attorney.

Gamboa, 31, posted a $4,500 bond on Thursday after a hearing and is expected to be released on Friday, Gonzalez said.

"There's an allegation that was sufficient enough to get him arrested, but we're not ready to make any statement yet," Gonzalez told ESPN.com. "This is recent and unexpected. It's two misdemeanor counts, not felony charges. We're going to deal with. I haven't had a chance to talk to (Gamboa) yet in any detail, only briefly when we were at the courthouse.

"Until we get a little further along and see what's going on we have no comment on it. We'll deal with it. If there's any light at the end of the tunnel it's that we're dealing with misdemeanor charges. I'm not downplaying misdemeanor charges. Anything like this is serious, but there's two sides to every story."

This is the second time Gamboa has been arrested on a domestic violence charge against the same woman. The first time came in 2011.

"It is the second time, but the first time there was no conviction, just allegations," Gonzalez said.

Gamboa (23-0, 16 KOs), who is promoted by rap star Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, is a 2004 Cuban Olympic gold medalist who in 2007 defected and settled in Miami. He unified two featherweight titles in 2010.

In 2012, Gamboa moved up in weight and outpointed Michael Farenas to win a vacant interim junior lightweight title, which Gamboa never defended. In his next fight, in June, Gamboa moved up to lightweight and outpointed Darleys Perez to win a vacant interim lightweight belt.

Gamboa, who was implicated in the Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug scandal that mainly engulfed Major League Baseball, has not fought since.

Gamboa's name has been prominently mentioned as a possible opponent in early 2014 for newly crowned junior lightweight titleholder Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia. On Saturday, Garcia knocked out Roman "Rocky" Martinez in the eighth round to win a world title.

"Hopefully, we can put this situation behind us and '50' can get things worked out for the fight with Garcia and Gamboa can fight him in January," Gonzalez said.

I know there's been talk of him fighting Gamboa for a while. I always forget about it too but I think Mikey would be too much for him.

With Gamboa's speed it'd make for an interesting fight but I think Mikey's on a different level right now. Phone Post 3.0

Demetrius_AndradeMVP -

BB, considering Mikey is with TR, what other big fights are out there for Garcia if he beats Gamboa?

I think he'd demolish Ricky Burns and I don't think Broner can make 140 after his next fight never mind that fact that he's with GB so I can't think of any other big names.

What about Prov? He's with HBO for another fight isn't he? I know Mikey would have to move up but I can't see anyone (unless Im missing someone) at FW that can touch him right now.

It'll be interesting to see how he does when he moves up. Great fighter though. The Mexican Mayweather might be a bit of a stretch but not that far off. Phone Post 3.0
