fight coverage: mayweather vs. guerrero

Not a “Ghost” of a chance with Mayweather: Ringside by Chris Cozzone Thirty-six-year-old Floyd “Money” Mayweather may yet grow old. But last night was not his time to do so. Needing just two rounds to expel the specters of rust and age, Mayweather proved the naysayers wrong, yet again, by defending his pound-for-pound crown and [...]

fight coverage: Mares-DeLeon, Santa Cruz-Munoz, Rosado-Love

“MayDay” undercard coverage in Vegas In what should cement him a high pound-for-pound ranking, and the man to beat in the 120s, three-division world champ Abner Mares, 26-0-1, 14 Kos, moved up to 126 to dethrone WBC Featherweight Champ Daniel Ponce De Leon, 44-5, 35 Kos. Weathering the champ’s battering ram of a left hand, [...]

“mayday” postfight report

Old plan is new game for pugdom’s pound for pound kingpin Postfight presser by Chris Cozzone A new, old blueprint might’ve blackened the hopes of a war and bored a crowd to booing, but no one could deny that age-defying Floyd Mayweather Jr. had retained his pound-for-pound supremacy with yet another virtuoso performance. Before a [...]

Shots from ‘Knockout Kings’

Not too sure why the Dia de los Muertes-Man found his way into all my best shots on last night’s shoot in Las Vegas … Could be I was somewhat disappointed that De Leon vs. Gonzalez was dull and Canelo vs. Lopez was a mismatch. On the other hand, Marcos Maidana saved the show with [...]

report & gallery from saturday night: shumenov v. ornelas

It was a safe bet that WBA Light-heavyweight Champion Beibut Shumenov would retain his strap, last night against super-middleweight “challenger’ Enrique Ornelas. But the shallow crowd in attendance was not expecting to find themselves lulled to a deep sleep after watching the usually gutsy champ fight so cautiously, especially against an opponent afflicted with earmuff-itis [...]

mayweather-cotto: closer than the cards

Floyd “Money” Mayweather might’ve had the bigger payday, but $32M couldn’t buy rally a pro-Cotto crowd last night at the MGM Grand. Miguel Cotto might’ve lost his title, but bloodying Floyd and winning a full house that booed the decision just might entice the Powers-Dat-Be to think about another Pacquiao match-up.  Then again, Cotto did [...]

mayweather, cotto laugh it off

Anyone hoping the drama would break out at today’s sleepy presser at the MGM were in for a disappointment. Though the two faced off with steel intent, before long, Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto were smiling at one another.

‘money’ and cents show at the mayweather gym

Does “Money” make “Cents” or does “Cents” make “Money?” Floyd “Money” Mayweather may be slipping. Not only does he show up but an hour late, instead of the usual hour-and-a-half, but the usual 100+ degrees of stifling, unbearable heat in his gym was only at double digits during Tuesday’s media circus. Halfway into the usual [...]

bare bones workouts at bones adams

With only two of four fighters willing to oblige the media, at today’s (so-called) media workouts held at Bones Adams’ Gym in Las Vegas, Sharif “The Lion” Bogere, Francisco Contreras, Francisco Santana and Jermell Charlo minimized their efforts while a handful of desperate photogs snapped off a few shots. Bogere and Santana added a few [...]
