The Boxing Gods may be smiling upon us everyone... I read that Provodnikov wants to fight Brandon Rios next. This is a can't miss action fight and I don't care that Rios is on a two fight losing streak. This would be fun to watch. Phone Post

rorymcd - What is really crazy is that Sugar Ray had another fight in between the two LaMotta fights!

He lost a 10 round decision to LaMotta, two weeks later he won a 10 round decision over Jackie Wilson, then the next week he beat LaMotta in another 10 round decision. 30 rounds of boxing in three weeks against top contenders. They were grittier back then.
Wow that's just incredible. That shows how tough and hungry those guys were back then.

I like boxing a lot but I don't follow it as much as MMA, football, and basketball. I watched Tyson back in the day and now I watch most if the big fights.

Do boxers fight less now because of bigger paydays or they just don't have the desire to fight that often? Phone Post 3.0

This is a very good question, and there are a couple of reasons. First, as you mentioned the bigger paydays mean that fighters can thrive on 3-4 fights a year. Second there simply aren't as many opportunities to fight now as there was in 30's 40's and 50's.

I read a stat (I don't have the source off the top of my head), that showed the number of professional boxing shows run in an average year. In the late 1930's there were over 900 shows in the state of New York alone. By 2000 there were less than 900 professional shows in all of North America, including Mexico where boxing is second only to soccer in terms of popularity.

I was also read a book called Corner Men, detailing the careers of famous boxing coaches. Angelo Dundee, who cornered both Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard, talked about learning his craft as a second corner. He would be working professional fights 6 days a week!

----------------------------
Average Number of Fights to the Title

2007.........27
1995.........24
1985.........25
1975.............40
1965.............38
1955.......................70
1945....................59
1935.......................70
1925............................84

Average Number of Rounds to the Title

2007......143
1995....106
1985.......157
1975...........245
1965............275
1955.................417
1945...............377
1935...................478
1925..........................644

And notice how the KO percentage of the fighters dropped as the competition improved

2007.............64
1995...............76
1985.............66
1975.............64
1965.........43
1955...........54
1945........39
1935.......34
1925.....26

Damn. I root for Rios cause the guy loves to fight and his scraps are entertaining but I am starting to worry about the damage he has been taking.

Providnikov is a freaking beast and that will be violent if it happens. Hope they both make some good money fighting each other. I would definately think about trying to attend if the timing was right for me

Zab/Paulie fight is on the Showtime schedule for a 4hr 30mi broadcast, is this right? Card starts at 8 which is unusual, and there's no shoX prelims. Maybe showing the prelims in the same channel first. Phone Post 3.0

Yep. Jack Mosley arranged for som GBP reps to come over this time, make sure they were weighed on the same scales, make sure nothing odd happens ringside etc...

And pretty sure they actually paid Shane the full amount this time.

Talk about revolutionary changes !

Boxing in the land I call home is really on the up !

Arum's Statement on Manny Pacquiao's Tax Issues

 

Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=72105#ixzz2loxG6eUa
This is a legal waiver. By copying and using the material from this article, you agree to give full credit to BoxingScene.com or provide a link to the original article.

LAS VEGAS, NEV—Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum issued the following statement regarding reports that Philippine authorities have questioned Manny Pacquiao's payment of taxes:

“Filipino authorities confirmed that Manny is not required to pay double tax. If Manny paid U.S. taxes for fights and endorsements that occurred on U.S. soil, he is not required to pay double taxes in the Philippines.

"For each of Manny’s fights that occurred in the United States, including those in 2008 and 2009, Top Rank withheld 30% of Manny's purses and paid those monies directly to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Top Rank has deposit confirmations for each payment. Top Rank has done the same for all U.S. endorsements it has facilitated on Manny's behalf.

"Top Rank submitted copies of the EFT deposit acknowledgements to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) as proof of payment. The BIR received the documents but directed Manny to obtain “certified” documents directly from the IRS itself.

"As I am sure people appreciate, obtaining certified copies of documents from the IRS takes time. Manny made the formal request to the IRS and we have every expectation that the necessary documents will be furnished to the BIR very soon."

Oh you'll know about the moment Shane drops Mundine on his ass...

You'll hear the cheers and laughter from all three homes and both bars that bought the PPV from where you are sitting.

Just finished watching the fight.

My God that mindfuck of a card.

The Mosley fight sucked. They stopped it because Shane's back was fucked up. The commentators were all up on Mundine's jock the whole fight though and LoL @ them "conjuring" up a fake ass notion that Mundine legit stopped Shane for the first time ever which is complete bullshit because it wasn't like they stopped it due to Mundine fucking up his face or Shane quitting. They even had the audacity to think that maybe now Mundine could ask for Canelo or Mayweather LMFAO!!!

Damn I am disappointed. Shane actually looked kind of good against Cano. Really wish he could have gone out on a win. Now he'll probably keep fighting.
