Showtime might be taking another of HBO's fighters.

Ruslan Provodnikav's next fight will take place at Barclays center instead of the Nassau Coliseum. Why does this matter, well Golden Boy has exclusive rights to the Barclays. GB let the fight happen at Barclays, probably working out a deal with Banner Promotions (who promotes Ruslan and 154 champ Demetrius Andrade who is on the undercard.) Top Rank has a co-promotion deal with Ruslan for I believe 3 fights (upcoming fight is his 3rd.)

Cotto is just trying to cash out. He was small at 154, he's only moving up to 160 for the pay day vs. Sergio.

A bigger purse, not by that much though.

Porter has to get by Paulie first, Paulie is a tricky fighter. If he wins, he fights Kell Brook in the summer.

Thurman has to fight the guy with a draw vs. Porter in Julio Diaz. After that fight, I can see Thurman vs. someone like Maidana, Devon Alexander.

I just rewatched Mayweather vs Canelo and this part caught my attention. Holy shit! Look at how technically genius Floyd is. Intentionally missed the jab to connect a right cross.

Gabe Rosado is having a fit on twitter because Ishe passed on his replacement for Lara, lol. Homie lost his past four fights, and he'd possibly lose to a 5th in a row.

Hopefully Ishe fight Jermall Charlo. GB owes him a huge fight since his title match with Carlos Molina got canceled.

ESPN is getting into the boxing business in a major way. It could be huge. And these aren't Friday Night Fights on ESPN2 either, on the major network in primetime Saturday Nights.

Two title fights in the next 3 weeks. Heavyweight matches at that.

Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alex Leapai for 4 of Klitschko's belts next weekend and Bermane Stiverne vs. Chris Arreola on May 10 for the belt his brother vacated.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao on ESPN next year, lol.

i don't get the ring ratings sometimes. why is floyd mayweather jr the welterweight champion when he hasn't fought a top 5 ring-rated welterweight in the past 7 years? shane mosley was top 5 but he dropped off the rankings when he went inactive for over a year before fighting floyd.


his junior middleweight ranking i agree with, he fought cotto & canelo when they were at the top of the rankings.

where was Ricky Hatton ranked when he was undefeated and Floyd fought him in 2007?

didn't know those fights were on ESPN, pretty cool. A major fight on ESPN might even be less far fetched than those two actually fighting. DirectTV is dropping WWE PPVs and are supposedly going to eventually drop PPVs altogether.

It's a stretch to call that a feint. More of a measuring jab to gauge the distance before unloading.

Floyd does that kind of pawing jab to measure the distance often, especially in the second half of fights when he's in rhythm.


This is more of a feint, where a fighter makes a motion as if he's going to throw a shot, but doesn't...



Guess we're getting into semantics, though. Both actions are used to set up power shots.

It's no coincidence that boxing's appeal to the general public consciousness began to decline when all of the big or even semi-big fights became PPV-only events. When I was a kid, I'd watch great fights with big name fighters on USA.

It would be great if ESPN filled the void. Love Tuesday and Friday night fights, but rarely would you see big name guys in their prime... Either pretty good fighters or name fighters on their way up or down.

This is a good thing.
