Barry_BondsMVP - Lomachenko-Russell bout ordered

Featherweights Vasyl Lomachenko and Gary Russell Jr. were ordered by the WBO on Thursday to fight for the organization's vacant 126-pound belt.

The sides have 30 days to negotiate a deal or the fight will put up for a purse bid, which is likely because Lomachenko is promoted by Top Rank and Russell is with its bitter rival, Golden Boy Promotions, and they do not negotiate fights with each other.

Assuming it goes to a purse bid, the company that wins the auction would have sole promotional rights to the bout.

I kinda wish MMA had something like this to circumvent the cross-promotional bullshit that goes on, or rather that doesn't go on.


Making them TUF Ukraine vs USA coaches isn't good enough?

Randy Watson - Collazo still doing the rounds ! Not sure what shape he is in these days, but he could be a tricky outing for Khan.
He knocked out Victor Ortiz two months ago. He looked real sharp doing it too.

If GGG and Chavez fight I'm taking GGG every day of the week and twice on Sunday. Phone Post 3.0

that's going to be a long week for you. chavez takes this

I hope we find out. Phone Post 3.0

I would pick Gary Russell to beat Lomachenko if that fight goes down.

Ishe Smith put everyone to sleep on the last Floyd ppv. Matching him with Lara is a cure for insomnia.

There's a semi-decent FNF card on Friday for the first time in several weeks. Miguel Angel Gonzalez vs. Fernando Carcamo Garcia is a solid fight.

Loma has some balls if that fight goes through. Two very tough fights back to back.

I'm not sure if this is the full episode but it's all I could find on YouTube.

Yeah as much as I llike Bradley, the way he's talking about 8-4 is fucking ridiculous. It was definitely closer than some of the HBO crew had it (you could argue it was 7-5 to Pacquaio if you're being generous) but there's is no fucking way Bradley won that fight.

I can understand why he doesn't want to admit he lost but he could at least have the decency to say "well that's how thee judges saw it" or "it could've went either way". Something instead of coming across as a delusional fool by saying he won as clearly as 8-4 smh!

I think Manny takes this one again and actually gets the win from the judges. Thank God that stupid cunt C.J Ross is gone. Scoring the fight to Bradley was bad enough but to score the Floyd/Canelo fight as a draw was criminal. . . literally!

After watching the face off, I must say I like both these fighters. Bradley is a good dude, Manny is a good dude. I would love to see either one of them against Floyd. Unfortunately one of them has to lose on fight night. I'm cheering for Pac, but would not be upset if Bradley wins. Both these guys are class acts. Phone Post 3.0

stevenson wanted no part of Kovalev.  HBO said they would pick up this fight if they had a guaratee of the Kovalev fight but they said no and bounced to Showtime.

 

he ducked Kovalev big time.

Wow,  Bradley really thinks he won 8-4. I can't imagine being in that situation, and it's not like he's gonna admit he lost.. It was a close fight for sure. But yeah, Pac won that fight and even if he did lose there is NO way he lost 8 roounds. I watched that fight at least 3 times since it happened.

Not true. Showtime offered more money period for this fight and a fight against Bernard Hopkins which is a bigger money fight for Stevenson. He's 35 and chasing the money and he hates Hopkins with a passion for his antics and comments against pascal. He went with bigger money and a fight that Canadians and Haitians want him to take and that's Hopkins. Phone Post 3.0

I personally feel Stevenson wants nothing to do with Kovalev right now.

I'm not too familiar with his situation but did Stevenson sign an exclusive multi fight deal with Showtime or did they just offer him more money for his next fight?

That's definitely a good enough reason to sign with Showtime if he is getting more money but you have to think that if he actually seemed willing to fight Kovalev, HBO would break the bank to keep him.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck! Lol! Phone Post 3.0

FightHype.com has learned through a very reliable source that it appears both Top Rank and K2 Promotions are ready to move forward with a proposed super middleweight showdown between former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. The fight is tentatively scheduled for July 19th at the Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Our source also informed us that the Golovkin camp has requested a $500,000 fine for every pound that Chavez Jr. is over the contracted weight limit of 168 pounds. Although Arum was previously considering former light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal as a possible next opponent for Chavez Jr., word is that he backed off of that idea when he learned that Pascal could be close to signing with influential adviser Al Haymon, thus opening the door for Golovkin. HBO is already on board for the fight, which now appears very likely to happen this summer.

Be sure to check FightHype often as more information becomes available.

[UPDATE: FightHype.com has been informed that the weight penalty is even more than our initial report of $500,000. According to the latest update from one source, Golovkin will receive a whopping $1 million for every pound that Chavez Jr. is over the contracted 168-pound weight limit.]
