I’ve been focused like always with my training this camp,” he said. “I’m gonna do and use whatever I need to be one step ahead ...

Mayweather vs McGregor – Who’s the winner…Them or us?

Non-sports fans always ask what draws us sports fans to a big event. What is interesting about the Olympics, Big Championship games, horse races etc? Along with the expected entertainment, drama, thrill and excitement are what brings us in to big events. But there is one thing that is key that bridges the disconnect between sports fans and non-sports fans, and that is the spectacle.  When two top teams finally meet, in a showdown for all of the marbles, the world tunes in because the hype surrounding it is that you are going to witness a display of excellence between ...

Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez: 30 Day Report

When you want something so bad, and it takes a while for you to get it, sometimes the wait is exhausting, stressful and painful. Well finally we are now 30 days away from the biggest boxing match of the year between GGG and Canelo, and as the date approaches the excitement begins to build.

Mayweather vs McGregor: Can Conor Win?

With the recent quotes from Floyd Mayweather about his slippage, along with the reports that Conor is impressive in camp, I ask the question, does Conor McGregor have a chance to pull off the biggest upset in boxing history? What’s key in Mayweather’s quotes isn’t just his own admission that he has lost a step and isn’t the same fighter.

While many could see this as a ploy to create excitement for the fight with fans having the ...

Mayweather vs McGregor – Good for boxing?

Please No, Not Again! Not after the aftermath of the Mayweather/Pacquiao from May 2015 in which casual boxing fans were left with a bad taste in their mouth, PPV sales decreased, and boxing had a bad image in the sports world. In my opinion it wasn’t the $100 price tag it came with but the lack of action, after the years of the buildup was what did it. Pacquiao who is an all-time great fighter, fought the fight with an injured shoulder, and while he had his great moments in rounds 2, 4, 6, 8 & 9, Mayweather out pointed ...
