The Sweet Science - Mayweather VS Alvarez

Posted by LastSonOfKrypton on September 13, 2013 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (11)

Manny who? OK, maybe not, but this fight ALMOST makes up for Pacqiao/Mayweather never stepping in the ring together... should be almost as good. It is astonishing that Saul 'Canelo ' Alvarez is only 22 and already at 42-0-1... especially when you hold it to 36 year old Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s sparkling 44-0-0.


(Though, if Money Mayweather can beat Canelo (and he can, though this ...

The Sweet Science - News, notes and recaps

Another typical Mayweather performance... used his precision jab, lightning hand speed and defensive wizardry to make yet another elite fighter look ordinary. 'The Ghost' Guerrero managed some fits of action and landed a couple decent body shots early, but it was vintage Floyd by the mid rounds as he picked apart Guerrero with surgical accuracy. Robert...

A few thoughts on a topic not touched on much these days, but one of intense interest to me...

So, some boxing thoughts:

 

Watched 2 fights recently, Ricky Hatton VS Vyacheslav Senchenko and Andre Berto VS Robert Geurrero.


 

The former was the penultimate moment of Ricky's attempt to make a comeback in the ring. He hadn't fought sin...

Goodbye, Adieu and Farewell Boxing

Not often does a sport knock itself out of the spotlight and for many off the face of the earth.


That is what happened last night when Timothy Bradley "beat" Manny Pacquaio. It was a split decision with two judges voting in favour of Bradley and a third scoring Pacquaio as the winner.


Pacquaio out punched Bradley 253-159 and power punches 190-108, yet still lost.


Bradley even said after "I've got to look at the tape" to see i...

Manny Pacqiao VS Shane Mosley

TONIGHT!


While boxing fans still await the 'big' fight that still hasn't happened between Pac-Man and Pretty Boy Floyd (quit DUCKING, PBF!), this match should provide some thrills of its own.


Mosley, 39, is most likely looking at his last chance to compete in a spectacle like this, and despite a lacklustre performance against Sergio Mora in his last appearance (and a loss to Floyd before that), could still provide some fireworks in this one. This fight is i...
