PK3434 has an OK reputation so far

Cunningham outboxed Adamek on NBC but Adamek gets the bad decision..I think Steve looks good as a heavyweight though and should be able to land some good fights.

Here's Adamek vs. Cunningham II. Really good fight. I thought Cunningham was robbed. Nevertheless, you should watch it if you haven't.

Khan vs. Molina was totally one sided. The first round was pretty much exactly how the fight went from there on.

Nonito Donaire won Fighter of the Year award. Well deserved. 4 wins in the year including a total domination of Nishioka and a nasty KO of Jorge Arce.

Uchimiya wants to fight Gamboa. Could be a really good fight. I really hope they set up this fight for this year.

Canelo maybe fighting Trout on May 4th on the card headlined by Mayweather vs. Guerrero. Canelo was rumored of fighting Cotto possibly, but being on a 2 fight losing streak pretty much killed the talks of this fight happening and since Trout was the last person to fight Cotto, they're trying to set up this fight instead. From a boxing fan point of view, Canelo vs. Trout is a better fight, from a casual fan and business point of view, Canelo vs. Cotto makes more sense.

Kelly Pavlik announces retirement

Quote:
"When you stay in the sport too long you have health problems. That's a big, big thing for me," Pavlik said. "I'm not talking about now. I'm talking about in the future. I'm talking about when I'm 55 or 60. What's gonna happen to me then? Why take any more chances, especially in that sport. It's a brutal sport and you never know what can happen.

"I won the world title, I defended my title, I was champ for three years and I made good money. Why take the chance of medical problems? That's a big part of it. I also don't think the drive is there anymore. I'm moving on to a new chapter in my life."

"I've been a pro for 13 years and doing this since I was 9," he said. "I go away for two or three months at a time (to train) and I'm tired of leaving my family. It comes to a point where you just don't want to do that anymore. I put my money away and then with the Ward fight being canceled, well, health and time with my family is more important at this stage, especially with no guaranteed big fight or date."


Quote:
"I had a pretty good career," Pavlik said. "I was 40-2 and I only lost to two of the best guys, Martinez and Hopkins. I'm content. It's not like I got knocked out. It's not like I got knocked out the way Manny Pacquiao got knocked out (in December by Juan Manuel Marquez).

"I'm fine physically. But I feel like why keep pushing the envelope? I made it this long and this far and I have had fights that were tough fights. I got dropped by Jermain Taylor, got dropped earlier in my career. But you constantly take punches and it all adds up. When you're done, you might have brain problems, you might be punchy, you might develop Parkinson's. Why push it? I don't need it and my heart's not in it anymore. So why take the chances? I've been very fortunate up to this point."

this fight won't do sh*t for boxing. What boxing needs would be that Donaire vs Mares fight.

And yea, Donaire-Rigo has a high possibility of being a boring fight. I'm more excited about the card tonight than that matchup.
