There was rumors that Jorge Linares got ko'ed in training and then he gets knocked out in his fight. Same with Amir Khan

that being said Jorge Linares is one of the most talented boxers I've ever seen in my life but seems like he gets cut/hurt way too easily.

Linares is an incredibly talented offensive fighter. It looks for all the world like he should be a completely dominant fighter. Unfortunately, his chin fails him and, as you said, he tends to get cut up. He also get reckless with his offense at times, probably because he's so talented, and relies way too much on reflexes to bail him out.

Also, after you get stopped in a couple fights in a row, the tendency is to become a little gun shy. Those amazing physical tools will probably never be used with the kind of abandon he had before the DeMarco fight.

After four straight weeks up championship boxing on Showtime and HBO, we finally get a week off from big title matches. But Showtime is coming back strong for the next big feature May 18.


Lamont Peterson vs Lucas Matthysse
Devon Alexander vs Lee Purdy for Alexander's IBF welterweight title
Shawn Porter vs Phil Lo Greco

Damn, that main event is a tough one to pick. Lucas has to KO him by round 8 to win. If it goes 12, Peterson will get the decision, IMO.

He should be fighting Alvarado, but I guess it's ok since he's coming off a knockout loss to Antonio Banderas. It's going to be a great fight tho.

Rios is an easier fight for Pac than Alvarado.

Sucks for Alvarado missing a pay day but as a fan of action fights, this could be as fun as it gets. I know people will give Manny crap for fighting a guy coming off a loss, but what else does Manny have to prove? He's been on top, he's been at the bottom. Both coming off a loss. He picked the fight they thought would be best for the fans, can't complain about that. Not a risky fight, more like a confidence builder/tune up fight.

Bob Arum and Top Rank are desperate. 6 bucks ... haha. Mayweather and Golden Boy would never do that.

Top Rank is slim at the 140-154 weights. All the talent is over on Showtime now. We're gonna get Pac, JMM, Bradley, Rios, Alvarado and Provodnikov in some form or fashion against each other the next 3 years, lol.

Did anyone catch the quick interview with Victor Ortiz before the Mayweather fight started? He looked fat and sounded retarded. Something seemed off like he was on/off meds.

Floyd looked great back in 8oz gloves btw.

Perhaps Spence is just being the homie and denying the KO during sparring. Paulie says that his friend has the video and is trying to sell it to him.

Ortiz jaw has never heeled for Lopez' punch.

I love the counter straight right - left hook that he throws, he throws it so fast it's amazing.
