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.”

Algieri returns to the ring on May 29 to take on Amir Khan at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, as the headliner of a Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) card on Spike TV.

Johnson: I will KO Joshua in May

Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson (29-6-1, 14 KOs) has promised Anthony Joshua the toughest night of his pro career when they clash at The O2 in London on May 30. Joshua, the Olympic gold medallist, boasts a perfect 11-0, 11 KOs record, blasting away all his opponents inside three rounds. Johnson, currently on a three fight losing streak, arrived in the UK last week to complete his extensive preparations for the fight and will be ringside in Birmingham on May 9 when Joshua faces Raphael Zumbano Love.

“I’ve trained for so long for this fight and I have got the hunger back,” said Johnson. “Anthony is so big that the KO is going to look so good. He is very confident with the start he has made, but I am confident I will knock him out. (more…)

Statement on Browne-Chagaev Situation

Hatton Promotions has issued a statement to clarify the situation regarding Lucas Browne’s mandatory fight with WBA heavyweight champion Ruslan Chagaev.

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. We can outpoint him no problem.” (more…)

Floyd “Money” Mayweather held his “Grand Arrival” on Tuesday afternoon. Thousands of fans turned out to watch a prompt Mayweather arrival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena as he was led to the stage by the Southern University Marching Band.

Floyd Mayweather Quotes:

“I don’t have anything negative to say about Manny Pacquiao or Freddie Roach. People from different teams can say things, but when it comes down to it, it comes down to the two fighters.

“I don’t focus on all the festivities going on. I just focus on being the best that I can be and doing what I’m supposed to do in the gym.

“I don’t ever say that ‘this is my toughest fight’ or ‘this is my easiest’ fight. I feel like he is a competitor and anything can happen in the sport of boxing. I always want to go out there and be at my best.

“I’ve broken records before. Are we going to do record-breaking numbers again? Absolutely. (more…)

Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao trained with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach on Tuesday for his upcoming 12-round welterweight world championship unification mega-fight against Floyd Mayweather.

“What we are doing in training is very good because we’re not focusing on one strategy,” said Pacquiao. “We’re working on two or three strategies. Either way, if he wants to fight me that’s good for me and if he wants to move around the ring I’m ready for that.

“I cannot say he is the most dangerous opponent of my career because I have not faced him. I have faced Oscar De La Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez and other great boxers.

“My confidence right now is different than any other fight I’ve had. I feel excited and I have to prove something. I like being the underdog, because my killer instinct and my focus are there. (more…)

Pacquiao appeal helps save woman from death penalty

By Jeff Pamungkas

Manny Pacquiao’s letter to Indonesian President Joko Widodo to cancel the execution of Mary Jane Veloso, a Filipina woman who was sentenced to death and scheduled to be executed last night, was well responded to by the president. She was scheduled to be executed together with eight others convicted of drug smuggling and the other eight were reportedly shot to death. The reason for cancelation of the execution is reportedly the result of the surrender of one of Veloso’s friends to the police in the Philippines.

Manny wrote:

“Mr. President, on 2 May I’ll be fighting in Las Vegas, Nevada, against Floyd Mayweather. It is considered the fight of the century. It will be a great morale booster if, in my own little way, I can save a life. I am dedicating this fight to my country and the entire Asian people, to which the Philippines and Indonesia belong. Thank you, Mr. President.”

Russell Peltz remembers Gene Fullmer

Former world middleweight champion Gene Fullmer passed away April 27 at the age of 84. Promoter J Russell Peltz, International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2004, recalls watching Fullmer on television as a kid.

Gene Fullmer: It took time to appreciate him

I hated Gene Fullmer! He was one of the first fighters I saw when I began watching boxing on television with my dad when I was 13. This was late in 1959 and I remember seeing Fullmer defend his National Boxing Association (NBA) title against Spider Webb from the Cow Palace in San Francisco. I thought it was dreadful. Fullmer was all shoulders and elbows and he had no style, just a bull rushing in, falling into unorthodox clinches, grabbing, turning, twisting, doing anything to disrupt the flow of the fight.

The 15-round decision– remember when real men fought 15 rounds—went to Fullmer by wide margins and I couldn’t believe it. Four months later, Fullmer defended against Philly’s Joey Giardello in one of the dirtiest fights in boxing history and it ended in a 15-round draw and the fight had more head butts than you would see at a convention of billy goats.

Firstly, Klitschko wanted to address the point deduction for excessive holding.

“Our long international boxing nightmare will soon be over,” declared Manny Pacquiao’s Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach on Monday. “Boxing has been held hostage by Floyd Mayweather and his antics long enough. Manny is going to stand up to Floyd on May 2 and put a bully in his place. On paper – and in the sports books – Manny shouldn’t stand a chance. But neither did David against Goliath. Just remember, Manny has always come out on top when he was the underdog and you don’t have to look any further than his victories over Ledwaba, Barrera and De La Hoya. As Manny said earlier, ‘It is time for Floyd to lose.’ Manny is on a mission. This fight is his crusade. The fans of the world are rooting for Manny to win just like they willed this fight to happen. He is their champion. This will be their victory.”

Today Pacquiao will host a free fan rally celebrating the kickoff of Fight Week at Mandalay Bay in Bayside C, located on the first floor of the South Convention Center, beginning at 11AM. Doors will open at 10AM.

Welterweight Adrian “Tigre” Granados (13-3-2, 9 KOs) of Cicero, Illinois gets the opportunity of a lifetime this Saturday. He will be on the undercard of the historic fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Granados will take on unbeaten Brad Solomon (24-0, 9 KOs) in an eight round bout. Granados also just recently teamed up with Journeyman management.

Granados will enter as the underdog, which is something he has become accustomed to. Solomon is not only undefeated but is promoted by Top Rank, the shows’ co-promoter.
