I don't see what's good about Danny Garcia. He looked lost at times during the fight, and was just throwing wild punches. People are considering him a viable opponent for Mayweather? He would lose worse than Canelo. He did look good against Matthysse, but just throws wild punches IMO.

Hererra wants a rematch and should get it, if Danny doesn't move up to 147 for his next fight. That seems to be the idea for him.

Deontay Wilder will fight the winner of Stiverne/Arreola II for the WBC Heavyweight Championship.

I honestly think he caught a break in the Matthysse fight. Matthysse was laying some heavy leather on him until he got thumbed in the eye. The whole complexion of the fight changed after that. In fact, I thought Garcia was close to getting stopped before Matthysses' eye injury.

Id have to rewatch the fight but i certainly dont remember Garcia being in any serious trouble during his fight VS Matthysse, let alone being close to getting stopped. He even took a solid shot from Matthysse that knocked his mouth guard into the crowd and didnt even look shook

The Mayweather-Maidana undercard looks taking shape.

Amir Khan vs. Luis Collazo
Adrien Broner vs. Carlos Molina
JíLeon Love vs. Marco Antonio Periban
Jermell Charlo


And the night before, there will be another card headlined by Erislandy Lara vs. Ishe Smith.

Mickey Bey and Jermall Charlo will be on that card.

Showtime (looks) to have stolen a fighter from HBO.

Adonis Stevenson, who's last four fights have been on HBO looks to make a move over. Apparently Showtime has outbid HBO for his upcoming fight with Andrzej Fonfara.

If this is true, it shits on HBO's plan for the superfight between Stevenson and Sergey Kovalev in the fall. But it's more HBO's fault for not outbidding Showtime.

if ishe brings the fight to Lara since he supposedly ducked him (per smith)and doesn't do what he did against Molina , I think I'll be more excited bout that fight than anything on that Saturday.

Shit is getting real behind the scenes.

Al Haymon is showing you who's the boss. Snatching fighters up left and right.

HBO Boxing After Dark






Sergey Kovalev vs. Cedric Agnew [#14 WBO] for Kovalevís WBO Light Heavyweight Championship
Karim Mayfield [#12 WBC] vs. Thomas Dulorme [#7 WBC] for the vacant NABF Light Welterweight Championship


I'm looking forward to the opener more than the main event. Krusher should whip Ced pretty easily.

But what's left afterwards? With Stevenson over at Showtime now, he has no one left to fight. Jean Pascal, but he might be a Showtime fighter too as he and Stevenson share the same promotional company in GYM.

Durlome/Mayfield was a clinchfest.

Agnew could have actually bothers Sergey if he let his hands go. Sergey after the fight called Stevenson "A Piece of Shit ... excuse my language!"

On Twitter, Stevenson called out Kovalev. Stevenson just signed to Showtime for a 3 fight deal, and Sergey has one or two more fights left on his HBO deal I believe. SO they should meet this time, next year hopefully.

Depends on what happens with triple G and Chavez jr ,SOG should move up soon and meet up with kovalev to give him his first L.
As far as now, with haymon in the mix everywhere , I can see him putting Dawson and kovalev in there for the mean time later on.

That dude must be thinking of another fight or was a Matthysse fanboy/Danny Garcia hater. Danny was never in trouble in that fight, in any shape or form. That's just ridiculous someone could make that observation.

Final judgement because of the Herrera fight is not fair. That was a trap fight. Loads of pressure performing in front of his native country and he was a heavy favorite. He fell into a trap that many great young fighters before have fell into also. The guy finds ways to win and shows up for the big fights. He just needs to learn to take every opponent equally as serious even if he is the big favorite, and I think he certainly learned that against Herrera. Fights like that take fighters to the next level.

There aren't many viable fighters to take on Mayweather...why do you think the boxing world is so frustrated he will not fight Pacquiao?
