Darchinyan, though past his prime, is doing all he can for a rematch but may get ducked again. Pathetic shit by Donaire :

If they put Guerrero/Thurman on the undercard instead of the weekend before. And also add Austin Trout vs Lara, Omar Figurero vs. some one with a 135 title, Jermell Charlo, Victor Ortiz comeback, maybe Lamont Peterson on the card, that would be pretty good.

And depending on what y'all think are good PPV numbers, what would be considered a flop for Broner headlining his first PPV?

The Maidana- Morales fight was good. Though it was not supposed to be PPV, it was worth it after watching that fight. Even Morales was past it, he gave Maidana some fits. If not for that swollen eye, he could have beaten Maidana by decision.

Ship has sailed long time time ago for Darchinyan. I'm pretty sure Donaire will knocked him out again worse than that chicken dance.

Morales has a massive Mexican fanbase. Though his fight with Maidana absolutely should not have been a PPV event, it could be written off as an encore performance by a Mexican legend. Pretty much all of the really big Mexican boxing stars who fought well past their primes cashed in on some bad PPVs late in their careers.

Also, that fight did something like >50,000 buys. It was a total bomb.


Broner could be a big PPV boxer eventually because I think pretty much everyone outside of his immediate family want to see him splayed on the canvas, fast asleep. He's maybe the most unlikeable boxer I have ever seen and that's saying something. Even Prince Naseem Hamed had an air of self-awareness about him. I got the idea that he knew what he was doing was a bit farcical.

Broner seems utterly clueless. Having this big of an @sshole with the potential of being knocked cold? People will watch, eventually, if he doesn't turn out to be a total fraud.


He's not there yet, though, and trying to cash in too early in his career would be very unwise, unless his people think he's ripe for the picking and they need to make their money before the charade is exposed (could be the case). He needs to fight on Showtime a few more times, expose as many people as possible to his douchebaggery and then cash in against a big name who can punch.

I think Maidana could give him problems and the PPV numbers will be horrific, I predict. Not a good combination for a guy trying desperately to ride Mayweather's coattails to super-stardom. Most of America still has no idea who he is.

Yeah, Raging Bull would be the great underdog due to years, which makes this even more of a pathetic move. If it doesn't show fear, after years of pulling shit, I don't know what else does.

It's under the series name "The American Life": Underdogs and it features two of these guys and what there life is like at the lower end of the boxing spectrum. Great watch if you any of you are interested have a look around for it I loved in personally.
Where can I watch this?

Chavez Jr. cut his eye, so his match with Brian Vera for Sep 7 will be moved to a future date.

HBO stay losing.

For the 30 day weight in,

Mayweather is 150.3 and Canelo is 166.8.

So what happens if Canelo comes in at 154 at the weight in? Would he give up some of his purse, would the fight get called off? I think the decision will be up to Mayweather and his team right?

I doubt the fight gets called off. Probably a huge chunk of Canelo's purse goes to Mayweather.
