Manny would kill Maidana.

Wasa-B, Bradley was having success in the first half of the fight using his jab and getting off first.

Moments ago, @canelooficial (the official Twitter account of Canelo Alvarez) announced that the Mexican star would face Cuba’s Erislandy Lara on his July 12 date at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Canelo can fight anyone the hardcores want him to fight, he still won't get any credit if he wins.

Good for the kid though. Doesn't duck no one.
Very true. Lara is the type of fighter that gets avoided like the plague, much like Marquez back in the day. Good on Canelo for taking this fight. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, he def stopped jabbing after the first bit. I wonder how Pac would have adapted had Bradley kept on doing that? Bradley also seemed to be the one coming forward at first or was having success when he was?

Ishe fight is off. I think Lara is better than Canelo, but he isn't the most active fighter and can get rounds stolen off him sometimes just due to activity. It will probably be a close fight and one of those fights where the decision could go either way, because of lots of close rounds.

Bradley is just difficult to fight period. He does everything relatively well and gives you different looks throughout the fight. It's hard to really get any kind of rhythm against him, because he's so awkward and changes things up so often.

I think he needed to do that to stop Pacquiao from timing him, but it's hard to win a decision fighting the kind of fight he did. He needed to make it a stinker type of fight to win a decision against Pacquiao.

he had three different game plans last night lol. First three rounds he boxed from the outside with his jab, his best success in the fight. Rounds 4-6 he wanted to smother Pacquiao on the inside and go to the body. 7-12 he just looked to load up on one punch.

Yes spot on. You do wonder how much the bad press from the first fight played on Bradley's mind. He seemed way to determined to make a statement rather than win the fight. And he's never been a KO artist so why start now ?

I was watching it with friends from the gym. I noticed Bradley was quick to shell up and move a lot every time Pac so much as twitched. I said then: "Manny should feint the shit outta him to tire him out" Seemed like he did just that from the 5th on. Nothing too obvious but he sold it enough to get Tim to hesitate long enough to pick him off with solid potshots.

Lara is a risky move for Canelo. Good for him for taking that bout. I like Lara's chances but he sems so inconsistent, I can't outright pick him to win. Phone Post 3.0

I dont wanna sound like a goof here, im certainly not as astute in my observations as many. But having seen all of Mannys fights since Morales 1 and i cant say i recall him really make adjustments in the ring. Hes become a different type of fighter since then but i dont know if i can say hes good at adapting to adversity or altering his game plan. 

 

In this fight, he seemed to keep doing the same thing even when Bradley was having success. Eventually it was bradley game that changed, right?

pretty much spot on Mark. Manny loves angles and being a buzzsaw, he'll never change that. He's just going to try and out gun you.

I remember reading how Roach said he changed Manny from just a one handed fighter to more well rounded. Manny was criticized for just having a left hand. He displayed a nice right hook against Hatton, but that notion came to rest in the third JMM fight. JMM kept turning Pac to his right, taking his left away and he got out boxed.

WBO super featherweight champion Mikey Garcia has filed a lawsuit against his own promotional company, Top Rank. According to court documents obtained by Jeandra LeBeauf of BadCulture.net, Garcia alleges that Top Rank attempted to "exploit, own and permanently control" his boxing career and has consistently violated the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act. The lawsuit states that Top Rank insisted that Garcia sign a contract that gave the company "the ability to extend the agreement indefinitely, essentially rendering the contracting fighter an indentured servant of Top Rank."

Garcia is looking to break free of Top Rank by seeking a declaration from the court which states that he "has no further obligations" and "is free to schedule future fights without any further interference from Top Rank." Evidently, Garcia initially signed a 5-year "Promotional Rights Agreement" with Top Rank on April 13, 2006. On February 27, 2009, Top Rank entered into a second 5-year "Promotional Rights Agreement" with Garcia prior to the original agreement ending, thus extending his commitment to the company to February 27, 2014 without first giving him the opportunity to negotiate a new contract with any promoter. Essentially, Garcia is saying that the two contracts overlapping each other put him into a 8-year long-term deal, which violates the Boxing Reform Act.

There are several other violations that the lawsuit cites, including alleging that Top Rank improperly acted as Garcia's manager by "arranging Garcia's bouts," "selecting 'in its discretion' the date of each bout", "selecting 'in its discretion' the site of each bout", "determining the financial arrangements of Garcia's bouts", "receiving or being entitled to receive more than ten (10%) percent of Garcia's gross purse as a professional boxer", and "selecting Garcia's opponents."
