After Saturday’s card in Macau, China, international media is rampant with articles of Bob Arum touting China as the “future of boxing,” and Manny Pacquiao wanting his next fight to land in Macau.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. took a break from training to attend the NCAA Final Four tournament. More in Atlanta Daily World.

Former Baltimore boxer and referee Raymond Klingmeyer passed away on Friday at the age of 88. Klingmeyer fought in the Marines as an amateur in the 1940s, then moved on to the pros in the ’50s until an injury saw him retired with a record of 39-8-3. He went on to referee and judge several significant fights, including the 1977 bout between Muhammad Ali and Alfredo Evangelista.
