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

Than flip over to Showtime (or HBO) at 9 PM

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.

Lol, this is not a new development as I'm pretty sure you're aware of. GB/TP haven't fought together in years. The only thing new now is GB/Mayweather are now strictly Showtime and Top Rank in now (unofficially) HBO.

And the fans are winning for the most part (other than tonight when both have events on at the same time.) This forces them to put on huge shows cause they are now competing against a promotion and now a network. Last year, Golden Boy might fight on HBO (Broner) than come right back and fight on Showtime (Canelo) so they were not competing with networks. But now, the whole landscape has changed.

When it comes down to it, you have to pick a side. And tonight you really do as they are on at the same time. So far, Showtime has been putting on the better cards.

part of the reason new fans choose UFC over Boxing is because of crap like this. Promoters just causing all kinds of crap and not seeing fights that we want to see.

You do know UFC is one promotion. It's just like say, Golden Boy. UFC just happens to have most of the best MMA fighters in the world. They just purchased up their competition in Pride, ect.

UFC and Pride were goin head to head, just like WWF and WCW. It's the same now with Golden Boy and Top Rank.

I know that. What's your point? I'm just saying people gravitate towards MMA (which is primarily UFC) because they see all the fights they want to see. While boxing gets killed by promoters like Top Rank and GBP protecting their fighters and not working together.

It wasn't always like that. I'm sure if Golden Boy purchases Top Rank, everything will be good. But boxing is much bigger money than MMA. Mayweather and Pacquiao probably makes more money than all the UFC fighters combined.

When UFC was battling Strickforce and Pride, it wasn't like how it is now (I'm assuming, I don't keep up with MMA.)

for the most part the UFC has controlled most of the top fighters in the sport for the past 5+ years. The only good fighter that never competed in the UFC is Fedor.

Maidana v Lopez will be a war while it last. Lopez is very live if he fights smart but he'll get sucked in and trade at some point. Maidana is fighting better as of late and should wear him down. HUGE weekend of action.

I'm concerned Dawson maybe done. Ward beat him down last time out and his inactivity is going to catch up with him sooner or later. Stevenson is a big puncher and with his home fans urging him on, I can see him flattening Dawson. I could be I'm wrong because I believe Dawson's skill suits him better at 175. Then again, Stevenson-Bellew would be a fairly entertaining fight.

Also, retired Joe Calzaghe has been calling out Andre Ward, claiming he would beat him. Maybe a promoter can make this happen. It's not like fighters haven't come out of retirement before and face top guys.

BTW, Prime Calzaghe >>>> Prime Ward

I've supported Chad for a long time but he is extremely frustrating. I'm hopeful that he puts on a clinic tonight like he should but who knows.
