it puzzles me when a guy is clearly in deep shit yet does not even attempt to clinch. After Mares got floored by that perfect left hand, he should have been in survival mode

Probably b/c he was on auto-pilot, straight up muscle memory. He probably doesn't train to clinch when hurt in the gym.

I love fighters that don't know how to hold. Not great strategy for the fighter himself, but it's nice to see boxers who are willing to go out swinging.

I liked his post fight comments. He said something like he's not here to get an amazing record and retire undefeated, he just wants to fight the best and the toughest fights.

I think we have found one of Floyd's four remaining fights. Floyd Sr. and Roger have been talking a lot of smack about Broner the past month or so.

Hell, even Adrien and Floyd have been giving out subliminals. Some reporter asked if Adrien would ever fight Floyd. He used to say "No, that is my big brother." Now it's "No, I want him to retire with a perfect record." Floyd critiqued him a whole lot in his last fight.

He then went on to say, "I don't wanna be the one that gives [Floyd] his first loss."

Doesn't surprise me. I've always assumed that the Mayweather camped talked shat about Broner anyway: "He's copying from my son", "That boy is a clown and he'll never be Floyd no matter how hard he tries".

It was only a matter of time.

I've always wondered why boxing decision isn't hold to a higher standard than it is/was. I mean, we got camera and the ability to slow motion a video since before the 80s don't we? Yet we've got one judge scoring one way and the other scoring totally the opposite way and it's totally fine without them having to justify their judging. How is this acceptable? Is it just time constraint?

LOL anyone see the David Sanchez vs. Juan Kantun.....after Sanchez won the fight via stoppage his trainer went to lift him on his shoulders and dropped him on his back lol .

Miguel Berchelt looked impressive in a good win against an over the hill Cristobal Cruz, dropped him with a sweet hook than after Cruz got up he went in for the finish and the ref stepped in and saved Cruz from further punishment.

RIP Tommy Morrison.

Can someone explain how Morrison was able to get 2 sanctioned bouts years after he tested HIV positive?


Isn't an HIV positive test result the complete end of a career in a 'bloodsport'(emphasis on 'blood') like Boxing?

Broner vs Maidana is being moved to December 14th.

Paulie Malginaggi turned down a fight with Zab Judah.

Robert Guerrero turned down a fight with Keith Thurman.

Guerrero wants the winner of Broner/Maidana.

Thurman is most likely fighting Soto-Karass, on the Broner/Maidana card.

I can see Thurman fighting the Alexander/Khan winner.

Naw, it was him. That was back when Broner was fighting at like 130 I think. They then got into it at the Mayweather/Guerrero shoot, as Broner was there talking shit, lol.
