Pharo i'm some what feeling the same thing...I also feel he trains hard when need be, he's young and dumb, either it's going to ruin him, or he'll grow out of it.

pharochuck - 

broner is already caught up in the superstar life, partying, hordes of women.he's ripe to be picked. he wants to be floyd so bad and he's kinda captured the image but not the essence. floyd would hit the club, but not drink and then go work out afterwards


Floyd brings running shoes... then makes his boys follow him home from the club in his car.

 

Floyd wins fights because he outworks everyone... everywhere.

. Kovalev vs. Sillakh Looms For November 30 on HBO

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I like Sillakh too much.

 

 

By Luke Furman

According to multiple sources in Russia and the Ukraine, negotiations are ongoing, and a deal is reportedly close, for WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (22-0-1, 20KOs) to defend his title against Ismayl Sillakh (21-1, 17KOs) on November 30th on HBO.

Sillakh won several high level tournaments as an amateur. He was regarded as one of the most dangerous fighters at his weight until he was shockingly upset by Denis Grachev with an eight round TKO in April 2012. He was dominating Grachev for seven rounds and scored a knockdown in the third, but left himself wide open in the eight and took a big shot that he never recovered from. Sillakh was won four in a row since the upset loss.

Kovalev-Sillakh would be the HBO televised co-feature to Adonis Stevenson defending his WBC light heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Tony Bellew. Both fights will land in a yet to be determined venue in Quebec.

Lewis Rejects $50 Mill For Klitschko, Wants Double

 

 

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis would be happy to make a sensational return to the ring to face IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO titlist Wladimir Klitschko - but only for 100 million dollars, the biggest purse in boxing history.

Lewis, who turned 48 last month, last fought professionally over a decade ago, but told the Daily Mail he would be ready to step back into the ring with only six months of training on the condition that he is paid USD 100 million, over double the purse that was guaranteed to Floyd Mayweather in his victory over Saul Alvarez last month.

Lewis says he was offered $50 million to end his retirement while he attended Klitschko's uninspiring unanimous decision victory over Alexander Povetkin in Moscow at the weekend, but would need double that to spring into action.

"That is my price tag and it is under discussion," Lewis told the Daily Mail. "I have told them I can be ready in six months and I am in provisional training.

"I said at the time that it will take [50 million dollars] to get me out of my pyjamas but now I have to consider the value of my legacy of having retired as undisputed champion. That will cost them [$100 million dollars]."

Lewis had always maintained he had no interest in making a comeback since retiring after beating Klitschko's older brother Vitali in June 2003 in controversial circumstances, retaining his WBC title when the fight was stopped after the sixth round in Los Angeles.

The Ukrainian had a deep cut above his left eye but led on the judges' scorecards when officials ruled he could not continue. In the referee's opinion the cut had been caused by a punch, which meant that Lewis was automatically declared the winner.

A much-hyped rematch never materialised, but Lewis would be more focused on a fight with Wladimir should he decide to return to the ring.

"I beat Vitali so I would like to fight the other brother but we'll see how it works out," he said.

Chavez-Vera Rematch Being Pushed To February 2014

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Bryan Vera (23-7) will have to wait until next February to get a chance at avenging last month's decision loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (47-1-1, 32Kos). The fight was going to happen on a date in December, but Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum said he met with HBO and it was determined that Chavez-Vera II would get pushed to next year.

Chavez plans to continue his career at super middleweight. He failed to make the 168 limit for the match with Vera, which led to the contract weight being increased to 173-pounds. The fight ended in a controversial ten round unanimous decision in favor of Chavez. Most observers felt Vera had done enough to win.

"I feel very strong at super middleweight, and that's where I will continue my career. I will give a rematch to Bryan Vera, a brave fighter and then I want to face Andre Ward and Carl Froch, I want to be the best in the world at this weight," Chavez Jr. said.

Glen Tapia-James Kirkland in Talks For 12/7 on HBO

 

By Keith Idec

Pat Lynch, Glen Tapia’s co-manager, confirmed to BoxingScene.com Thursday that negotiations are ongoing for a possible Dec. 7 bout between Tapia and fellow 154-pound contender James Kirkland.

The Tapia-Kirkland fight, a significant step up in competition for the 23-year-old Tapia, would be broadcast by HBO as part of a tripleheader from the Adrian Phillips Ballroom at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

The 29-year-old Kirkland (31-1, 27 KOs), of Austin, Texas, has not fought since scoring a controversial disqualification win against since-crowned IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina in March 2012 in Houston. Molina (22-5-2, 6 KOs) was winning that bout on two scorecards, but was disqualified when one of his corner men stepped into the ring before the end of the 10th round, just after Molina reached his feet following a Kirkland knockdown.

The unbeaten Tapia (20-0, 12 KOs), of Passaic, N.J., recorded his most noteworthy win July 12, when he defeated previously unbeaten Abie Han (19-1, 12 KOs), of El Paso, Texas, by technical knockout after eight rounds in a bout ESPN2 televised from North Las Vegas, Nev. Tapia, ranked No. 10 by the WBO and No. 14 by the IBF at 154 pounds, has since stopped 42-year-old veteran Elco Garcia (27-9, 13 KOs), of Ignacio, Colo., in the fifth round Sept. 28 at Bally’s in Atlantic City.

Lynch was optimistic about finalizing a deal with Tapia’s promoter, Top Rank Inc., while he and Tapia are in Las Vegas for the Juan Manuel Marquez-Timothy Bradley bout Saturday. He cautioned, however, that financial terms had not been agreed upon.

Broner-Maidana Blockbuster PPV Card is Finalized

By Rick Reeno

Golden Boy Promotions have finalized the entire Showtime pay-per-view card for December 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. And the card is expected to have fireworks from top to bottom.

In the main event, Adrien Broner (27-0, 22KOs) will make the first defense of his WBA welterweight title against Marcos Maidana (34-3, 31KOs). Broner, a high ratings draw on Showtime and HBO, will get his first opportunity to headline a pay-per-view. In June, Broner moved up by two weight divisions to capture the WBA title with a close split decision over Paulie Malignaggi.

In the co-feature, former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz (29-4-2, 22KOs) will make his long awaited return, as he moves up to 154-pounds to challenge IBF junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina (22-5-2, 6KOs).  Ortiz has been out of the ring since breaking his jaw in a ninth round TKO loss to Josesito Lopez in June 2012. Molina captured the title with a decision win over Ishe Smith on last month's record-breaking Mayweather-Canelo pay-per-view.

A battle of tough welterweights, with Keith Thurman (21-0, 19KOs) defending his WBA interim-title against Jesus Soto Karass (28-8-3, 18KOs), who is riding a big streak with victories over Selcuk Aydin and Andre Berto.

Rounding things out, junior middleweight bangers Alfredo Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) and Jorge Melendez (27-3-2, 26KOs) will collide. Angulo is looking to rebound after suffering a TKO loss to Erislandy Lara in June. Angulo dropped Lara twice and appeared to be on his way to a win, but took a punch in the eye during the tenth round which forced him to turn away from Lara and start walking back to his corner, an action that made the referee wave off the contest. Melendez was back in the ring on the Cotto-Rodriguez undercard in Florida, where he stopped Jamaal Davis in two rounds.

Hatton Finally Details Violent Brawl With His Dad

 

By Matthew Young, courtesy of The Daily Star

BOXING star Ricky Hatton has told how he once floored his own dad in a heated car park punch-up.

The Hitman also revealed that he visits a counsellor each month to help him fight his booze and depression demons.

A bitter family feud had erupted resulting in legal letters between Hatton and his parents.

The ex-world champion, 35, was challenged by dad Ray as he took his kit bag from the boot of his car in September last year, just hours before he was set to announce his return to the ring.

He wrote in his autobiography, War And Peace: My Story: “He (Ray) swings at me. He punches me in the face, catching me on the cheek.”

The Mancunian warned his furious dad not to throw another punch and held him against his car – but raging Ray struck him again.

Hatton wrote: ‘Dad this is your last warning.’ I can see he will not listen and that nothing I can say will stop him – he swings a leg at me, trying to kick me. That’s it. It has to stop.

“I block it and crack him with my left hand, causing him to fall against his car.

“Seconds pass, but groggily he comes defiantly back at me.

‘Do it again. Do it again!’ he shouts.

“‘Go away,’ I reply, forcefully.

“Finally, he scurries back around the car and speeds off."

“The whole thing lasts barely a minute. I’m shaken up. I’m in bits, actually.

“I’d just had to crack my dad because he’d attacked me – there is no pride attached to it.”

The book, released yesterday, also tells how the boxer came close to slashing his wrists with a knife.

He admitted: “It took me so long to go to someone and say: ‘You know what, my head’s in bits. I don’t know what to do. I keep crying. I feel depressed. I want to kill myself.’

“I think if more people who suffer from depression just swallow their pride and say: ‘Listen, I need help. Someone give me a hug. Someone talk to me,’ it would help.

“My story, for my sins, for the rights and the wrongs, is not just a boxing story.

“There’s been the drink, the drugs the depression, the suicide.

“Whether it’s the drinking, drugs or the suicide or the boxing or the fall-out with my parents – everyone has got an opinion, but I know the facts.

“That’s what I wanted to come across.”

Marquez looks ripped at 144. Bradley looks like Bradley at 146.

I hope Joel is bluffing when he says he wants Tim to box Marquez. If it is he better have a plan B or he's going to get outclassed.

KJ! - Watching the prvo and brad fight, man Bradley swings a lot but I just don't see any power. Nothing that is frightening. Phone Post 3.0

Bradley when he throws combinations doesn't have much power, but he has enough pop that when he catches you clean he can hurt you. I've seen it plenty of times against tough durable guys. It's nothing frightening but it's definitely worrisome.

I think it's just the fact that he actually believes the judges made the right decision. He even had the gall to say he won 8-4!

Apart from that I think he's a good dude and I like watching him fight. He really is a son of a gun. His dad is pretty cool. Phone Post 3.0

Hopefully JMM can KO Bradley and then retire (he should have done that after the Pac fight).

I think I'm going to watch JMM/Katsidis (again).

That was a WAR!
