Despite boxing exhibition, Floyd Mayweather firm on retirement

Published

on

By Ponciano Melo – Floyd Mayweather once again displayed his amazing showmanship in the sports of boxing. An easy money for an easy fight.

Millions of dollars came flowing right into his account as he made an eight-round exhibition boxing against YouTube personality Logan Paul. The fight went to distance and there was no winner.

Fans and star personalities in attendance were hoping for a more action fight but they received a little power punches and thrill.

Although, many commended the toughness of Paul against the fading power of the 44-year old Mayweather.

Now, the questions after the fight was obvious: will Floyd come back and fight professional once again?

The answer was clear from the legendary boxer.

“I’m never coming back to boxing. I’m absolutely not,” he said during the post press conference.

He only had praise for his opponent and nothing more.

“I had fun. You’ve got to realize I’m not 21 anymore. He was strong, tough and better than I thought he was. I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy,” he added.

He also insisted that he already made his mark in boxing and he has enough wealth.

“When the money comes, we’ll see who is the real winner.”

“At the end of the day, I’m going into the Hall of Fame for boxing. I have nothing to prove.”

Manny Pacquiao is back in training!

Published

on

By Ponciano Melo – With over two months of staying until his profoundly expected battle against Errol Spence Jr, Manny Pacquaio began preparing.

Generally viewed as perhaps the best fighter ever, the Filipino southpaw has had a renowned lifetime, winning 12 world titles and being the solitary eight-division best on the planet in the game.

He has a severe excellent expert record of 62 successes out of 71 battles with just seven losses up until this point.

Pacquaio’s last battle was against Keith Thurman in Nevada just about two years prior. In this manner, he won the session through split choice, turning into the most established welterweight champion at 40 years old years and 216 days.

The 42-year-old will next take on Errol Spence Jr at the same scene on August 21, and he’s as of now began his preparation as the new film demonstrates.

The battle in August is something boxing fans everywhere in the world will be excited about watching. Pacquaio will undoubtedly confront perhaps the most challenging episode of his vocation. On the other hand, Spence, the current IBF and WBC welterweight champion has yet to lose any of his 27 battles and will be excited about keeping up that record.

The 31-year-old’s last battle was against Danny Garcia, which he won, and that is presumably why he is viewed as the top pick against Pacquaio in August. Nonetheless, the 42-year-old will be a long way from willing to tap out.

Not long back, Floyd Mayweather, who beat Pacquaio in 2015, said, via BoxingNews24: “He [Pacquiao] is very dangerous still.”

Spence, who is currently at the peak of his powers, might be the favorite to win the fight in August, but someone of Pacquaio’s quality should not be written off. With a sea of experience under his belt, the Filipino is more than capable of giving his opponent a run for his money.

Nevertheless, it is a highly-anticipated fight, one which fans can hardly wait for.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in Nevada.

By Ponciano Melo – Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou have prodded a super heavyweight battle after the UFC champion reacted to the Gypsy King’s case that he would be ‘simple work’ after he beats Anthony Joshua.

Ngannou was delegated heavyweight champion a month ago after avenging his 2018 loss to Stipe Miocic in Las Vegas, finishing a fantastic excursion from the sand mines of Cameroon to the UFC culmination.

The 34-year-old’s essential aspiration was to turn into an expert fighter. He disclosed to Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin webcast that he wants to contend in the ring and get down on the Gypsy King for cash turning confrontation.

‘I don’t want to fight Mike Tyson, but I would like to fight another heavyweight boxer such as Tyson Fury,’ Ngannou said.

‘Absolutely. I’m open to that. Remember boxing was my primary dream, and I still have the fire, the dream inside me, and I believe at some point, I’m going to take a step.’

Fury, 32, reacted to Ngannou’s remarks via Twitter, tweeting a picture of the knockout craftsman close by Tyson with the inscription: ‘

.@MikeTyson after I smash @anthonyjoshua, I’ll roast that guy also.

‘@francis_ngannou easy work.’

The UFC star reacted to Fury’s correspondence, posting a picture of the Gypsy King gravely cut during his 2019 battle with Otto Wallin, composing: ‘If this person did this to you, what do you figure I would do?’

Rage calm worries about the cut over his right eye during his resentment rematch with Deontay Wilder, sidestepping any genuine harm while walloped the Bronze Bomber to win the WBC heavyweight title.

What’s next for JerwinAncajas and Mark Magsayo?

Published

on

Two Filipino boxers went victorious in their last respective fights. Mark Magsayo scored a thunderous fourth-round knockout while JerwinAncajas defended his IBF belt via a unanimous decision.

The future is bright for them, but what are the possible steps they should take to align themselves to the path of greatness?

Magsayo remains undefeated, and he displayed huge improvement compared to his last fight. Legendary coach Freddie Roach acknowledged the development of his boxer. Meanwhile, Ancajas was tested but showed great poise as a champion who stole the big names’ attention in their division.

Is Mark Magsayo prepared for a title shot?

Not presently. Yet, the beneficial thing here is that the more he sits tight for a world title shot, the more drawn out his time under Freddie Roach would be. Something else that favorsMagsayo because the featherweight division isn’t excessively stacked with incredible gifts at this moment. Gary Russell Jr. is an excellent division right now as he holds the WBC belt. Emmanuel Navarrete has the WBO tie. Leo Santa Cruz previously climbed to super featherweight, leaving Can Xu as the WBA champion.

The most straightforward course of action for Magsayo would be the IBF course as it is right now empty, and Magsayo is now positioned fifth by the association.

Which battle would you need to see for Ancajas next?

The prevalent view in boxing circles is that Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman Gonzalez will be battling each other again after their tight fight a month ago. SrisaketSorRungvisai’s timetable seems to be more open as he has battled threefold during the pandemic all event in Thailand.

In any case, I figure the best course for Ancajas will be to bind together against Kazuto Ioka of Japan, who holds the WBO variant of the 115-pound belt. The victor of this matchup versus the champ of Gonzales versus Estrada would be the greatest battle in the division’s new history.
