“I’ve been training two to three times a day. I go to Wild Card Gym in the morning, strength train in the afternoon and sometimes do another workout in the nighttime. I’m ready,” declared unbeaten super lightweight contender Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez on Monday. Gomez (18-0, 13 KOs) takes on former three-division world champion Humberto “La Zorrita” Soto (65-8-2, 35 KOs) in Saturday’s co-main event for Canelo vs. Kirkland which will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing.

“It’s going to be a good fight against Soto,” said Gomez. “He has a lot of experience, but I think I have the youth and I’m stronger. Soto also has good combinations and is a veteran with more than 60 fights, so he’ll be ready too. (more…)

Pacquiao: surgery and NSAC problems

Manny Pacquiao will have surgery this week in Los Angeles to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and be out of commission for eight to ten months.

Pacman has also incurred the wrath of the Nevada State Athletic Commission over a snafu where he was denied a pre-fight anti-inflammation injection despite that medication being listed on a form sent to the NSAC earlier in the week. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, NSAC chairman Francisco Aguilar has asked the state attorney general’s office to look into whether Pacquiao committed perjury by signing a pre-fight medical questionnaire where “no” was checked to the question “Have you had any injury to your shoulders, elbows, or hands that needed evaluation or examination? If yes, explain.”

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which had conducted random drug testing leading up to the bout, was well aware of the injury and had approved a number of medications for Pacquiao. According to a March 13 press release, USADA announced that they and the NSAC “are working collaboratively on this program and will share all relevant information about the program including all test results.”

Aguilar told the Review Journal “Just because they disclosed it to USADA doesn’t mean they disclosed it to the commission.”

Joint Statement From Team Pacquiao and Top Rank

During training, Manny Pacquiao suffered a right shoulder injury. Manny went to see world-class doctors, partners in the prestigious Kerlan Jobe Orthopedic Clinic, who performed tests and, in consultation with Manny, his promoter, and his advisors, concluded that with short rest, treatments, and close monitoring, Manny could train and, on May 2, step into the ring against Floyd Mayweather.

Manny’s advisors notified the United States Anti-Doping Agency (“USADA”) of the shoulder injury and the treatments being proposed by the doctors during training and on fight night. USADA spoke to Manny’s doctors twice, investigated, and confirmed in writing that the proposed treatments, if used, were completely allowed. The medication approved for fight night was a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (Toradol).

Manny continued to train and his shoulder improved, though not 100%. This is boxing, injuries happen, and Manny is a warrior. Again, in consultation with his doctors, promoter and advisors, Manny decided to proceed with the fight anticipating that he could receive his pre-fight treatment. That specific treatment had been approved by USADA in writing at least 5 days before the fight. (more…)

Burns: I can’t wait for US debut

Ricky Burns says that beating Omar Figueroa in Texas on Saturday will put him back on the World title trail. The former two-weight world champion Burns meets the former WBC lightweight king at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo live on CBS in the US as part of the Premier Boxing Champions series. Burns is looking to return to the top of the boxing tree having lost his WBO Lightweight crown to Terence Crawford and then slipped up against Dejan Zlaticanin as he looked to make waves in the WBC rankings.

The Coatbridge ace stepped back into the ring and up at light welterweight for the first time in Leeds in October with a confidence boosting win over Alexandre Lepelley, and the 32 year old expects a classic on a must-win night.

“This is such a huge fight for me,” said Burns. “I have had a tough time of it in and out of the ring recently but that’s in the past and it’s time to get back to performing in the ring and doing what I love. We wouldn’t have taken the fight if we didn’t think I can win it and I am confident that I will. I don’t want to contemplate defeat, I am not thinking about it – but there’s no doubt that I need to win this to get back on track and into more big fights. (more…)

Pacquiao disappointed in Nevada Commission

Boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao has accused the Nevada State Athletic Commission of sabotaging his fight against Floyd Mayweather. According to a report with video on Rappler.com, Pacquiao told reporters in his hotel room Sunday that not only was he “sabotaged” when the NSAC wouldn’t allow him to take a USADA-approved injection to relieve pain from an injury in his right shoulder, he stated that his vitamin supplements and water were withheld by the Commission from his dressing room. Pacman also suggested Mayweather was tipped off about his injury and Floyd tried to take advantage by pulling his arm during the bout. Pacquiao estimated that he was only at 60% for the fight and wants a rematch at full strength.

WBC/WBA/WBO welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather announced that he’s relinquishing all his world titles on Monday or within a few weeks and that his final fight in September may be a non-title bout. “I would like to give other fighters chances,” said Floyd at his post fight press conference. “I got the WBC and WBA super welterweight and WBA, WBC, WBO welterweight titles. It’s time for other fighters to fight for those titles.”

“I had a brilliant game plan and remarkable team. Manny Pacquiao is still a champion. He still has a lot left. I was the better man tonight, countering and basically using the jab. I am blessed, Manny is blessed, he’s a hell of a fighter. I knew in my heart I was beating him easy. He was applying pressure, but he wasn’t landing any punches. I was constantly popping the jab in his face.” (more…)

Pacquiao reveals pre-fight shoulder injury

By Miguel Maravilla
Photos: Emily Harney

Manny Pacquiao said at the post fight press conference that he was essentially a one-armed fighter for much of his fight against Floyd Mayweather. Pacquiao stated he had suffered a shoulder injury during training camp. “One week before the fight my shoulder wasn’t one hundred percent. We had an MRI and there was a tear in my right shoulder,” he said adding that he felt pain from the third round. “I hesitated to be more aggressive because I only had one hand. My right was in pain. It’s hard to fight with one hand.”

It was also revealed that Pacquiao had been denied an anti-inflammatory shot by the Nevada State Athletic Commission prior to the fight even though the shot was approved by USADA during his training camp.

There had been some consideration given to postponing the fight due to the injury but a decision was made not to reschedule. (more…)

Mayweather, Pacquiao Postfight Quick Quotes

By Miguel Maravilla

Floyd Mayweather: Manny Pacquiao is a tough competitor. He’s a true champion and we were both at our best tonight…My last fight is in September, then it’s time for me to hang it up. I’m almost 40 years old now. I’ve been in the sport 19 years. I’ve been world champion for 18 years. And I’m really, truly thankful and blessed.

Manny Pacquiao: I thought I won the fight. He didn’t do anything. He always ran. I got him many times. I saw the punches and I think I won the fight. It’s not easy to throw a lot of punches if the opponent is moving around. I can handle his power. It’s not like Margarito or Cotto.

Off-TV Mayweather-Pacquiao undercard bouts

By Miguel Maravilla at ringside

Undefeated middleweight Chris “Sweet” Pearson (12-0, 9 KOs) outpointed Said El Harrak (12-3, 7 KOs) over ten rounds. In what was a chess match in the early part of the fight Pearson and Harrak sized one another with the jab. Pearson was cut above the right eye in round four as blood trickled. Pearson continued to fight on outslicking and outworking El Harrak. Going all out in the final round both Pearson and El Harrak closed strong. Judges scored the bout 98-92, 99-91, and 99-91.

Undefeated super middleweight Jesse Hart (17-0, 14 KOs) scored a sixth round stoppage over Mike Jimenez (17-1, 11 KOs) for the NABO, USBA and NABF (junior) super middleweight titles. Hart pounded Jimenez early on connecting with power shots. Finally an accumulation of punches forced referee Tony Weeks to stop the fight at 2:13 of round six.

In the opening bout from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Brad Solomon (25-0, 9 KOs) won a ten round split decision over Adrian Granados (13-4, 9 KOs) of Cicero, Illinios in a competitive bout. Solomon was on the offensive early on stalking Granados as he circled the ring. Halfway through the fight Granados began to come on. Granados was cut on the left eye late in round eight but that did not stop him from coming after the slick Solomon. Heading to the final round Granados pressed as Solomon kept his distance. Late in the round Solomon appeared staggered as Granados closed strong. Scores were 96-94 on all three cards with Solomon wining on two of them.

First note from ringside. The undercard bout between cruiserweights Andrew Tabiti and Anthony Caputo Smith is off due to a medical issue with Smith.

Both Pacquiao’s gloves and Mayweather’s Grant gloves have been approved and inspected by the Commission, and Manny will enter the fight tonight with his chosen “puncher’s gloves.”

Mayweather is a 2:1 favorite, but more bettors wagering on Pacman

As expected, wagering on tonight’s Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao clash is hot and heavy. Mayweather is currently a -210 favorite, while Pacquiao backers can get +170. 49% of the action is coming in on Mayweather, 51% on Pacquiao.

“We expected this to be our highest bet fight in recent memory and as of today the rate that bets are coming in is astounding and may surpass our expectations,” said Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager at Bovada.lv. “We will know more tomorrow, where we expect to take 50% of the bets on the fight. Even though action is pretty even on the fight itself, our liability on Pacquiao is steadily growing since he is paying just under 2/1. The best case for the book is a Mayweather decision, no surprise there. The worst case is an early Pacquiao KO or even a draw which, I am without words on how much love it is getting from our bettors.”

Typically a bet for a draw on a fight will pay about 33:1. For Mayweather=Pacquiao, a draw is paying 10:1.
