Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao – the Real winner was

Floyd “Money” Mayweather emerged as the victor over Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, under the bright lights of the MGM Grand, Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The fight was tense and a boxing match with few fireworks. It was an intriguing match-up of styles between the two best fighters of a generation.

Gutsy Andy Lee earns Draw against Peter Quillin

The magnificent Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York, USA, played host to the intriguing clash between WBO middleweight champion “Irish” Andy Lee and former, undefeated holder Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin. There was controversy at the weigh-in, as Quillin failed to make the weight and subsequently, Lee’s WBO belt wasn’t on the line.

The fight was aired as part of Premier Boxing Champions on NBC, and the bout while not fast paced, certainly contained drama. A lack of action, for periods, was countered by the intense nature of the affair.

Reverberations from the Excel – Billy Joe Saunders beats Chris Eubank Jr

After an all-day show at the Excel in London, which ridiculously finished at around 1.20 a.m. on Sunday morning, some thoughts and opinions were enhanced whilst others were refuted and yet more questions were raised than were answered.  This is always the way after a good show, and it was a good show despite a couple of major disappointments.  Here are some observations that I made following the marathon card.

I am even more convinced than ever that Billy Joe Saunders will never be an elite middleweight.  Neither will he ever beat an elite middleweight.  However, in our world of plenty (as far as alphabet belts are concerned), this will not preclude him from winning one of the same.  Even ordinary fighters are able to win these trinkets and call themselves world champion.  By the way, I am not describing Billy Joe as an ordinary fighter.  He showed tremendous skill, heart, will, and last but by no means least, chin, as he managed to stave off the desperate lunging attacks of Chris Eubank Jr. on Saturday night.

Javier Fortuna beats Cotto in Foul Fest

Fortuna’s fight with Abner Cotto was sloppy, comical and ugly––if it’s possible to be both ugly and comical at the same time.

The horrific performance from referee Lou Hall, who was officiating his first significant career fight, only added to the mayhem, chaos, and havoc.

Fortuna (26-0-1) buzzed Cotto (18-3) early in the first and second rounds, but Cotto hung in and even scored a “knockdown” in round two with two of the neatest back of the head rabbit punches ever thrown. Hall called it a knockdown which it was not and then took a point away from Cotto for the knockdown. Huh!

GGG Wins, but Dock Makes “Atrocious” Call

GGG Wins, but Dock Makes “Atrocious” Call

“You want good show, just call me.” Gennady Golovkin

He [GGG] punches like a mule.—Carl Froch

Things opened up with a dreadfully boring 12-rounder (which I believe Michael Buffer announced as a ten round fight) between Mike Perez and Bryant Jennings—a close fight in which referee Harvey Dock took away a point in the last round enabling Jennings to win. The judges were split, scoring the bout 114-113 Perez, 114-113 Jennings and 115-112 Jennings.
