During the first half of he fight I was thinking Zab is really just a name right now and will continue to be a stepping stone for up and coming fighters. He really stepped it up and hurt Garcia in the 2nd half however and had the fight gone a few more rounds he would have had a shot to actually win the thing. I was pretty impressed despite the loss.

Boxing has been on a tear this year and continued with another stellar event from Las Vegas. Mayweather events are like the SuperBowl/NBA All-Star games of boxing


Showtime is winning the battle vs. HBO. The next big night is on Showtime in 2 weeks. Peterson vs. Matthysse

What's next for all of the fighters involved?


Mayweather says he wants to fight in September. Amir Khan was in the crowd, he's been talking about fighting Mayweather recently. He fought last week, with an unimpressive victory. Devon Alexander has also been thrown around, but I'm think more and more like it's a no. Canelo?

Guerrero, maybe can square off with another of Floyd's easy work, Victor Ortiz. Or maybe even Adrien Broner, if he beats Paulie next month.

Abner Mares just won the featherweight title. I'd love for him to fight Mikey Garcia. Ponce vs. Nonito.

Leo Santa Cruz should fight Guillermo Rigondeuax

J'Leon Love and Gabriel Rosado should have an emediate rematch.

Wladimir Klitschko won as expected.

Was Bute's KO loss to Froch an aberration? I actually thought Bute was solid and would give Ward for a run for his money but then I see Froch pretty much just truck him.

You guy's thinkg Bute is just chinny?


and can't wait for Peterson vs. Mattyesse

It was no aberration. He is chinny. He barely beat Andrade, he was almost out in the 12th round of their fight. Even Golovkin KO'd him in the amateurs with headgear on (around 2:53 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLaNwWP95jA). Froch is solid. He has good power and a great chin. Neither guy has anything for Ward, who needs to move up to LHW.

That was the rumor, but it is important to note that both Broner and Spence have denied it. Now, that could just be training camp etiquette and, often times with things like this, where there's smoke there is fire. But, it is being denied by both guys.

Almost as interesting, Spence Jr. worked as a sparring partner with Floyd for the Guerrero fight and, one day at a media event, Floyd showed up with a huge shiner. Word on the street (or Internet) was it's also Spence's handiwork.

There was also a rumor that Floyd got pissed when he was hit with the shot and threw Spence out of his camp before cooling down and bringing him back in.


All of this is hearsay, but SOMEBODY gave Floyd a black eye and signs are pointing toward Spence. Bottom line, this kid is someone to watch going forward. Really excited about his potential.
