Oscar hopes Mayweather-Pacquiao is exciting

Golden Boy President Oscar de la Hoya has issued a statement on Mayweather vs. Pacquaio and Canelo vs. Kirkland over the next two weeks.

“The week around Cinco De Mayo will serve as perhaps the most exciting seven-day stretch in the great history of boxing, launching with the May 2 super-fight between the biggest stars of today and closing with the May 9 Texas battle featuring the biggest star of tomorrow, Canelo Alvarez. As for my May 2 prediction, my head says Mayweather, but my heart goes with Pacquiao. Whoever wins, my ultimate hope is that the fight is exciting for the millions of fans tuning in. They waited far too long for this match, and they deserve to see something dazzling in the ring. One week later, fans will get what they always get with Canelo — an action-packed fight against a fellow top contender in James Kirkland. I am hopeful and confident that this incredible week of boxing will attract a whole new wave of fans and catapult boxing back to a place of prominence among the world’s sports fans.”

While Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach has been making daily headlines, Floyd Mayweather’s trainer and father Floyd Mayweather Sr. has been less vocal. Senior didn’t speak during Wednesday’s final press conference, but he did get in a few digs afterward.

“Whatever happens on Saturday, it’s going to be one-sided,” said Mayweather Sr. “Pacquiao is going to sleep. I’m a trainer, I know what’s going on with fighters. Pacquiao doesn’t have it. Everybody can say what they want to say. I’ve said it before, Pacquiao can’t punch. I’m not worried about it. I’m going to have Floyd walk him down.”

“When this fight was announced, Manny’s training level went way up,” said Freddie Roach, trainer of Manny Pacquiao. “He’s really excited about this fight. I think we will win a decision and outpoint this guy. If the knockout comes then that will be a bonus.

“I think Manny likes to be the underdog. We like pulling upsets and doing things we’re not supposed to do. Manny is going to be that guy.

“We will put a lot of pressure on Floyd. Manny likes to exchange and with his hand speed, this fight will go in our favor. Manny is reckless, but that’s his style. He tries to win fights and people enjoy his fights. He gives it his all and sometimes you get knocked out, that’s part of boxing.”

ABC calls on U.S. Attorney General to launch investigation of Haymon

By Karl Freitag

The Association of Boxing Commissions has asked the Attorney General of the United States to investigate “Alvin Haymon and various companies associated with him” for allegedly breaking numerous provisions of the Muhammad Ali Act.

In a six page letter to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch, ABC President Tim Lueckenhoff wrote, “Haymon and related companies make no attempt to hide that they operate in the dual capacities of promoter and manager. It was the Vice President of Operations “Haymon Boxing” which sat on the dais and participated in the announcement of the PBC series on NBC. No other promoter was present. Frankly Haymon seems to be flouting this breach of the Firewall provision of the Muhammad Ali Act.”

Lueckenhoff also cited numerous other apparent Muhammad Ali Act violations made by Haymon/PBC and noted that PBC appears headed toward also becoming a sanctioning organization with their own “in house” champions and belts.

The letter concludes, “The ABC has no resources or authority to investigate further or to take action with respect to this. However, we can and do request that there is “reasonable cause to believe” that Haymon is “engaged in a violation of this chapter” [15 U.S.C. 6301 et. seq.] and that 15 U.S.C. 6309 gives express authority to the United States Attorney General’s Office to investigate and to take action. We ask that you do so.”

Last Pacman foe Algieri picks Mayweather

Former world champion Chris Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs), the last opponent of Manny Pacquiao predicts Floyd Mayweather will outpoint Pacman on Saturday in Las Vegas. “Styles make fights and I believe this is a style that suits Floyd,” said Algieri. “Floyd is the smartest fighter in the game. He will be able to pick up on certain flaws and exploit them. Manny is going to make him work in there and I believe that the first few rounds are going to be very interesting. Manny is a different and smarter fighter than he was before the Marquez knockout. If Manny comes in shape the way that he did against me, and if Floyd has missed a step at all, then I see Pacquiao giving him all kinds of trouble. Ultimately though, I see Mayweather winning a decision.”

Lucas was made mandatory by an official notification of the WBA Championship Committee on the 24th February this year. However Chagaev’s team explicitly stated that they wished their boxer to make an optional defense first on the 24th of April 2015 in Germany as they had a TV commitment confirmed for this specific date. This was agreed on the basis that Lucas received financial compensation to “step aside”, with a view to the mandatory contest still happening this summer. (more…)

“Floyd’s never fought anyone with better speed than he has and I believe we have better speed,” said Manny Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach on Tuesday. “I believe we have better power than he has and we’re using that. I don’t think Floyd’s legs are there anymore and he can’t run for 12 rounds because we will catch him on the way. We’re ready to go 12 hard rounds and that’s what we train for.

“I learned a lot from Floyd’s fight with Oscar De La Hoya. I thought he won the first six rounds and then lost track of the strategy. We learned a lot about how Floyd sets traps and Manny recognizes how he sets trap. He won’t fall into it ever and Manny knows exactly what to do in every situation. I think we can win a decision.

Norbert Dabrowski: “We have a strategy to win. I rely on my technique and I’m pleased that Dominic is also a technician. In the ring, you’ll see who is better. I have come to take advantage of this great opportunity and win!”
