I like both fighters, but I really think Lavar takes Duffee out. I'd like to see it, and I think it gets his name out there even more for fans. 

as far as the guy goes bro, not surprised at all. I'd imagine he felt something similar to the blast after a nuclear bomb goes off from neck up and called it a career lol.

BTW, hows his arm doing? I never looked up if he was injured from the Struve fight. I remember him being in some pain after the finish, doing well?

his arm is better, he said Struve could of really did more damage, but he didn't extend it...so Lavar respects him for that, and Duffee doesn't have the chin for Lavar imo, they've sparred at AKA before I believe.

Pacquiao’s Tax Issues Lead to Bigger Questions; Fan’s Perspective
By Paul Magno, Yahoo! Contributor Network
Friday, Mar 9, 2012

Yesterday, it was revealed that Philippine tax officials had filed a criminal complaint against Manny Pacquiao regarding several "discrepancies" in the 8-division champ's 2010 tax return. The nature of these discrepancies and the extent of Pacquiao's tax problems have not been divulged and probably won't be. For all we know, these issues could be mere clerical mistakes and problems easily resolved.However, this particular situation brings up a bigger issue that needs to be addressed by Manny Pacquiao.

Once well-kept, rumors about Pacquiao's financial situation have become public knowledge over the last several months and with so much weight behind these stories, there has to be some truth to the reporting.

Last year, when independent accounting firm, VisionQwest was hired to review all of Manny's financial dealings , they were shocked at what they found.


"A complete overhaul of Manny and MP's (MP Promotions— Manny's Promotional Company) financial records and bookkeeping needed to be implemented because there were no records other than six boxes of receipts, hand written notes, and e-mails which were not kept in any order with no designations," VisonQwest stated in a press release. "Manny and MP did not have any important documents in their possession like bout contracts, bank statements, bout proceed distributions, endorsement contracts, promoter contracts, co-promoter contracts, property ownership records and many other important documents…"

 
A little later in the same press release, it was revealed that Pacquiao was unable to pay the accounting firm for their services upfront due to "a lack of funds" and that the fighter would issue payment to them after he got his advance for 2011's Juan Manuel Marquez fight. VisionQwest even loaned Manny Pacquiao money in order to help buy a house for advisor, Michael Koncz. According to the accounting firm, Pacquiao promoter, Bob Arum, became increasingly uncooperative in forwarding crucial revenue documents and flew into a rage when the company took it upon themselves to search for the necessary documents at the offices of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Shortly thereafter, VisionQwest was fired by Pacquiao and his management team.

 

 
Back in July of last year, this writer posted an article on another website, using official documents from the House of Representatives in the Philippines as its main source, that quoted Manny's net worth as a shockingly low $26 million USD (prior to last May's Shane Mosley bout).


Manny laughed off the report, but the truth of the matter, if these reports from independent sources are to be believed, is that the Filipino legend has a very loose grasp on what he has and the money he has made.

According to VisionQwest, Manny was "distraught" when he saw their initial findings, but urged that no legal action be taken until he could get his pay for the Marquez fight because, presumably, he was in need of the money. Somehow, Pacquiao was convinced to fire VisionQwest, the one group that seemed to have his best interest at heart, and he decided to continue with the same crew that had made his finances a mess in the first place.Now, these latest tax issues have sprung up.
 
Pacquiao will likely work his way out of this legal situation back home, but the fact remains that something's not right with the financial situation of Manny Pacquiao. Boxers who risk their lives for their glory deserve to have their fortunes intact. Hopefully, Manny can fix things and not become yet another fighter with a sad story to tell after an illustrious career.

The boxers life right there. I would hate to see Manny retire to be in trouble like the many before.

Also i'm glad Lavar's arm is a-ok. Looking forward to seeing him again v Schaub. I'm kinda upset to say that I bet against HD being that I'm a big fan of his too, but Lavar won me some big money with that stoppage. I could never hate the guy lol.

lol good choice, not to many guys can take punches from Lavar...and he's a real cool dude too.

yea, I feel for Manny, too many leaches though...he's too nice. Roach predicted this a few years back.

Its a personal opinion for sure, but I wish Roach's top fighters would've listened to him a bit more come fight day. Everyone's always in great shape from Ariza's work and now the new guy from Phillipines for Strength/conditioning and Manny's speed mitt work. Linares' chin is a problem, but he spot on listens to Roach and shines technically. Khan and Pacquiao can be sucked out with action IMO, and end up set up or in the way for some punches. Khan basically left Roach to slow it down with Virgil, and over the time he was spending with Manny and Jorge. Slowing up his style and boxing was basically what roach was asking of him, makes me feel like the time spent with Linares is there because of the rifts in the bigger camps.

BTW did Rebook drop Khan?

not sure if Rebook dropped Khan, but the problem with Roach...he doesn't teach defense.

I had my suspicions with Ariza, odd that JCCjr, Pacquiao and Khan have all complained of leg cramps during fights.

This is true, way more Speed, Combinations, and whatever movement applys to boxer's skillset (I believe he taught Pacquiao no pivoting or stepping in a certain way I forgot what it was exactly)

That is odd on those three fighters with the exception of Pacquiao and his disproportionate lower body. His calves don't match anything on him lol. Don't want to make a call one way or the other on Ariza but from what I hear his condition programs for fighters are pretty intense.

It's fishy how Bob Arum didn't want Vision Qwest taking a close look at Manny's finances.

Morales Facing USADA Doping Charges, Two-Year Ban

Article Link - http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt=printable&id=62284#ixzz2KdaFWoqz
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.

by David P. Greisman

Erik Morales has officially been charged with anti-doping violations by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for allegedly testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol prior to his October 2012 rematch with Danny Garcia, according to a copy of the correspondence sent to Morales by the agency and obtained by BoxingScene.com.

A USADA review board concluded that two samples taken from Morales — one on Oct. 3, another on Oct. 10 — provided “sufficient evidence of an anti-doping rule violation,” reads the letter, which is dated Feb. 8.

“You have agreed to abide by the Code and the Protocol, and that any positive test result(s) from a Sample provided by you would be managed pursuant to the Protocol, which has previously been provided to you,” the letter reads.

It then describes the sanctions Morales would be subject to for his first anti-doping rule violation:

“Up to a two (2) year period of ineligibility, as described by Article 10.2 of the Code, beginning on the day you accept a sanction, fail to request a hearing or fail to respond, or the date of the hearing decision in this matter, from participation in any activity or competition organized by or under the auspices of any signatory to the Code or any member of any signatory, including ineligibility from participating or coaching in Olympic, Pan American Games or Paralympic Games Trials, or being a member of any Olympic, Pan American Games or Paralympic Team; and,

“Disqualification of the competitive results obtained subsequent to October 3, 2012, the date your urine Sample #1546299 was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes consistent with Article 10.1 of the Code.

“Furthermore, if it is determined that you are subject to the application of aggravating circumstances as described in Article 10.6 of the Code, your potential period of ineligibility may be increased up to a four (4) year period of ineligibility.”

Morales announced his coming retirement — following perhaps one farewell bout in his native Mexico — after being knocked out by Garcia in October. While USADA’s ban wouldn’t necessarily need to be respected by athletic commissions in the United States, it could potentially pose a tremendous obstacle for him to be licensed to fight in some states.

Morales has until Feb. 18 to let USADA know whether he is accepting or contesting its sanctions. If he does not choose to contest the sanctions, and if he does not request a five-day extension in order to make his decision, then the sanctions against him would begin that day.
