some bizarre news coming out regarding the Lara/Angulo fight.

Lara claims that someone told his camp that he was not allowed to weighing more than 164 on fight night and Angulo ended up weighing in at 174. Now Lara's team should be blamed if they agreed to this in the contract but clearly golden boy wanted a Angulo win.

If that's true then that's sooooo f*cked up. Taking big shots while dehydrated is one of the worst things ever for a fighter. There's a reason why weigh-ins are the day before the fight, because fighters DIE when they fight dehydrated.

June 14
NBCSN Fight Night


Bryant Jennings defeats Andrey Fedosov
Jennings looks nice for a heavyweight prospect, the top American heavyweight. That Russian (as he said) was tough.

Sergey Kovalev defeat Cornelius White for the IBF Light Heavyweight #1 Contender
Beast, knocked him out in 3. With the B-Hop fight canceled, he may be next for Hopkins of Nathan Cleverly.

Ronald Cruz vs. Ray Narh
Cruz sucks, Narh hasn't fought in over 2 years and he won all but one round.



June 15
HBO Boxing After Dark


Mikey Garcia vs. Juan Manuel Lopez for Garcia's WBO Featherweight Championship
Terrence Crawford vs. Alejandro Sanabria for the vacant NABO Lightweight Championship


Garcia came in over weight, so he already lost his title.



On the Hopkins fight being canceled, Golden Boy might be announcing a fight soon to fill that void. Victor Ortiz vs. Shane Mosley maybe ...

Impressive performance by Garcia, even if JuanMan may be shot. He has a nice combination of skill/power, no doubt. Still just 25, too.

I hope Garcia stays at 126 and takes on Mares, or someone explosive like Fortuna. I'm guessing if Donaire moves up to 126, they won't fight since they're both trained by Robert Garcia. 130 has no competition really.

Mares-Garcia probably won't happen too because of Golden Boy vs Top Rank cold war.

Garcia should go up to 130, obvious him coming in at 128 means he's moving up. Impressive performance, Lopez is done, just like Dawson from last week. It's crazy both are just 30 ...

But, I'm ready for next weekend. The most anticipated fight of the year takes place as Paulie Malignaggi defends his title vs. Adrien Broner. I'm pumped!!

There is gonna be some real fireworks when that bell rings.
