Looks like Victor Ortiz vs. Robert Guerrero and Austin Trout vs. Gabriel Rosado are both in the works for the co-main events of Mayweather/Canelo.

I'm assuming only one of those goes on the PPV card. The other will be the co-main event for the Cotto event on Sep 28.

How true. He is indeed one of the phenoms of all sports. In a world that has gone overboard to hype the supertalented he reigns at 48 as a technician that did things the right way.

I've heard he's bringing in Marquez strength and conditioning coach who has been linked to PEDS.

I'm not saying he doesn't train hard. Sometimes guys just don't have the stamina to go 12 rounds hard. I think Canelo body frame may prevent him from doing that and that is why he chooses to fight in spurts. Only he would know but I've seen him fight the same fight every time.

Everyone goes into the fight thinking Mayweather isn't that good and is beatable. Then when the fights over they always say "he's a lot harder/stronger than I thought" No one is going to bully Mayweather around the ring.

The winner will get Floyd Mayweather, possibly in May of 2014.

smart fight by Khan. Alexander is probably the biggest name out there that doesn't really punch too hard. I don't think Khan is going to have a long career. once he gets a pay day vs Mayweather he'll probably make a fight with Kell Brooks in the UK and retire.

Tomorrow night is a head-to-head match-up between HBO and Showtime. Showtime will be on the air for 5 1/2 hours of boxing compared to only 3 hours for HBO.

Showtime kicks it off at 7 PM on Showtime Extreme!





Showtime Boxing on Showtime Extreme
Yoshihiro Kamegai vs. Johan Perez for the vacant WBA International Welterweight Championship
Ronny Rios vs. Leonilo Miranda for Rios' NABF Featherweight Championship
Gerald Washington vs. Sherman Williams
Jamie Kavanagh vs. Mario Hermosillo
Manuel Avila vs. Jamal Parram
Joseph Diaz Jr. vs. Rigoberto Casillas
Edgar Valero vs. David Reyes


Than flip over to Showtime (or HBO) at 9 PM
Showtime Championship Boxing
Marcos Maidana vs. Josesito Lopez for Maidana's WBA Intercontinental Welterweight Championship
Erislandy Lara vs. Alfredo Angulo for the vacant WBA Interim Super Welterweight World Championship
Jermell Charlo vs. Demetrius Hopkins for USBA Junior Middleweight and WBC Continental Americas Super Welterweight Championships






HBO Boxing After Dark
Chad Dawson vs. Adonis Stevenson for Dawson's WBC Light Heavyweight Championship
Yuriorkis Gamboa vs. Darley Perez for the vacant Interim WBA Lightweight Championship

After 2 Days: Gennady Golovkin, switch to HBO Latino at 11:15.
HBO Latino Boxing
Jose Pedraza vs. Sergio Villanueva



I don't know about y'all, but Showtime has been putting it on HBO the past few months (IMO.) HBO only has 3 fights on tomorrow compared to about 10 for Showtime. And last time out, HBO only aired one fight, Kessler vs. Froch II.

LOL what is with you and this whole Showtime/HBO thing and picking sides or whatever? The only ones that are winning are GBP/TR. The fans are losers here because we don't get any HBO fighters vs SHO fighters. Two childish promotions smh

And as long it's a good fight, I could care less if its on HBO or Showtime. Hell, It could be on Bravo for all I care.
