Barry_BondsMVP - try Subb's link, sorry about that.

oh yea, Canelo says he's returning July 12th and he wants Lara.
Quick turn around after fighting Ishe on May 2nd. I like that Canelo wants to stay active. More money for him and more entertainment for us. Phone Post 3.0

I'm taking old new hunger and fire Pacman by super saiyan onslaught. Bradley will be determined to prove himself after all the controversy surrounding his gift win, so I expect fireworks. I'm excited and anxious for a great weekend of boxing! Can't wait!! Phone Post 3.0

how's 2 weeks sound?

I'm a Bradley fan, but he's been taking some shots in his past few fights. Can't forget he's been dropped a few times in his career, I think his pride might get him caught up this fight. I'm still pulling for him though.

Mayweather Jr. Warns: Tell Them I'm Ready!

By Luis Sandoval

Floyd Mayweather’s fight against Marcos Maidana is still a month away but from the way the WBC Welterweight champion looks in training camp at the moment, you’d think he was ready to fight tomorrow.

It’s no secret Mayweather’s work ethic is second to none but it isn’t until you see it up close for yourself that you truly see and appreciate how superior Floyd is not just as a fighter, but an overall athlete. BoxingScene was at the Mayweather Boxing Club Friday afternoon to see the champ in action and I was told Floyd had taken the previous day off so he’d come into this session with a vengeance; they weren’t lying.

Sparring was on the agenda this day and more than a dozen gloves were laid out on the ring apron for Mayweather to choose from. The gym was packed with spectators and also fighters who already got their training session in for the day but have stayed to watch boxing’s number one pound for pound fighter.

Mayweather enters the gym and looks ready to go as the All Access camera crew is already rolling on his every move. Floyd lives to put on a show whenever he fights under the bright lights but he also does the same under the lights of his gym as those in attendance are treated to a showcase of pure talent and skill.

One of Mayweather’s body guards announces to the gym that all cameras and cell phones must be put away and no photos or videos are to be taken. And with that, the back doors of the gym are rolled down and all cameras including All Access are off and it’s time for the champ to work.

Floyd warns his sparring partner that he better have rounds in him because it’s going to be a long day and long doesn’t even begin to describe it. Three minute rounds may be the normal standard for every fighter but for Floyd, he takes it to another level. He spars unprecedented 9 minute rounds this day as he not only tests the skill set of his sparring mate, but also his endurance.

Even in sparring his opponents seldom get the best of Mayweather as he dominates the action while giving his sparring partner an earful of taunts and boasting. The champ looks crisp and fluid and while his sparring partner is game, Floyd is just too good.

His sparring partner isn’t able to last a 4th round as sparring is stopped and Floyd now moves out of the ring and commences to punish the heavy bag. After working the bag continuously with no breaks, he heads back into the ring for mitt work with Uncle Roger and then more work with co-trainer Nate Jones who wears the body suit. The pace is relentless and breaks are seldom seen.

“The more time we go, he just gets more and more stronger. Training camp is getting better and better. It seems like the older he gets, the harder he works” said Camp Coordinator and cousin Dejuan Blake.

Mayweather just turned 37 years old but he looks as good and sharp as he ever has and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.

“Tell them I’m ready! Make sure you tell them I’m ready. Do I look ready?” Floyd told me as he continued to punish the body suit worn by Nate Jones.

The answer was an emphatic “yes”.

The day wouldn’t be complete without a celebrity visit which are very common for Mayweather. Jermaine Jackson, brother of Michael Jackson, stops by to pay the champ a visit as he watches and analyzes the champ as he now moves to his conditioning exercises.

“He has a point to prove. Basically age don’t really matter. He’s out there to put on a show and perform the best way he knows how to perform” said Blake.

Mayweather will try to capture the 46th victory of his career in four weeks.

Geale: Management Finalizing Details For Macklin Bout

Australia's Daniel Geale is set to take on British boxer Matthew Macklin in a fight in the United States next month.

Geale announced the May 24 bout on the social networks on Sunday, although details are yet to be confirmed.

"Management are finalizing negotiations and expect to make an announcement shortly....!!" said the former WBA and IBF middleweight champion.

Geale has only fought once since losing his IBF world title to Darren Barker last August, crushing compatriot Garth Wood in February.

The 33-year-old had been hoping to tackle hard-hitting WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin - who destroyed Macklin in three rounds in June 2013.

Macklin won his last fight against American Lamar Russ in December last year.

Geale (30-2, 16KOs) vs. Macklin (30-5, 20KOs) would take place on HBO as part of a doubleheader, with Bryant Jennings facing Mike Perez in the main event.

Credit to Canelo for actually being willing to face Lara. That should be a very competitive fight.

Interesting clash of styles too, Mexican banger versus a product of the Cuban boxing system.

Canelo fought Trout as well, so I'm not shocked he would be willing to fight Lara.

They have common opponents in Angulo and Trout and each dominated one while having competitive fights with the other. It's hard to read into that too much, but I do think it comes down to styles.

I think whoever implements their game plan best wins the fight. Canelo has the edge in a war and Lara has the edge if it's a chess match.

I would pick Lara, because his footwork and speed will trouble Canelo who fights very stationary. Canelo would need to land something big to win the fight.

LMAO, after 4 years of inactivity (fought maybe 2 scrubs in that time) Clottey comes back to beat Mundine on his home turf. Awesome.

Makes the LMW division a little more interesting. Clottey is always willing to travel while Mundine never was. We could see Clottey/Andrade, Clottey/Molina, Clottey/Smith, etc.

Mundine was keen to make a name in the US and willing to travel and actually did early in his career, but then he (claims to be Muslim)came out with the disgusting statement about the US "Bringing 911 onto themselves" and that effectively killed any chance of a career in the US.

Although his dad never won a world title, he was a real fighter.

Mundine was a gifted athlete with a big mouth. But he never was a fighter.

I remember the hype Mundine had behind him when he first turned pro and a year later he was getting flattened by Sven Ottke. It's hard to believe the guy was a 3 time world champion considering he never really beat anyone of significance.

Canelo Broke From Televisa Over Blame For Death

By Rene Umanzor

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) caused a serious stir in Mexico after announcing that his next fight, on July 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, would not be carried by Mexican network Televisa.

Canelo has been the network's star fighter for several years, but a serious allegation has led him to walk away - at least for the moment.

According to Canelo's trainer Jose 'Chepo' Reynoso, a magazine [Tv y Novelas] under the Televisa banner wrote an article a few weeks ago - where it blamed Canelo for the death of former world champion Javier "Chatito" Jáuregui.

Last December, the 40-year-old Jauregui suffered a serious stroke and died a day later at a hospital in Guadalajara.

The article made allegations that Canelo, despite Jauregui's health issues, was using the veteran for sparring to prepare for his ring return on March 8th, which came against Alfredo Angulo. Not only did the article claim that Canelo was using him for sparring, it claimed that Canelo held nothing back and gave Jauregui bad beatings during the sessions.

Canelo was furious with the article, as Jauregui was a close friend of the entire team. He was even more furious that Televisa would stand behind such an article.

"Saul is highly resentful because of some things that were said and Televisa did not protect him. A magazine published some things that are not true, and that magazine has the seal of Televisa, and that caused unrest across the team," Reynoso said.

"They reported that Jáuregui had died from a beating by Canelo and that is something terrible because you are accusing him of something that is not true. He was not a part of [Canelo's] sparring for this camp [for the March fight with Angulo]. We had other guys. [They didn't even bother] to investigate [the information] and that affected the whole team."
