[Photos] The Moment Recap: Final Scores

LAS VEGAS, NV – Photo credit: Tom Casino & Esther Lin/Showtime In what was arguably one of the most competitive fights of his professional career, Floyd Mayweather defeated Marcos Maidana by split decision Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Aggressive from the opening bell, Maidana brought the fight to Mayweather early with furious, high volume punching. Knocking Mayweather back against the ropes, Maidana threw overhead hammer punches and hooks to the body. Known as the master of defense in the ring, Mayweather seemed to have trouble alluding blows and absorbed just as many as he alluded and deflected. As the fight wore on, Maidana’s volume decreased as Mayweather adjusted to his style…

LAS VEGAS (May 4, 2014) – Photo credit: Jeandra LeBeauf/BadCulture.net (Adrien Broner did not appear) For a moment, it seemed like Marcos “El Chino” Maidana could do the unthinkable – hand pound-for-pound champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather the first loss of his brilliant career. Only for a moment.

HATR – Pacquiao v Rios Undercard, Mayweather Promo Card

LOS ANGELES, CA – THE ALIEN HAS LANDED! This weekend, the Alien, Bernard Hopkins defied the age odds and defeated Karo Murat in one of the most active scraps we’ve seen B-Hop part of in quite sometime. Laden with kisses, hugs, corner camera talk, and shots while a fighter was down, this motley crew of action was a spectacle. A good fight for fans after the debacle that was Peter Quillin vs. Gabe Rosado. As I’m sure you know, Quillin was declared the winner by TKO in a close scrap after action was stopped when Rosado suffered a cut in the 10th round. The ring doctor deemed it too severe to continue and action was…

Golden Boy CEO Schafer To Make Big Announcement

LAS VEGAS, CA – In cloak and dagger fashion, an email was distrubuted to boxing media and insiders stating Richard Schafer will be making a “big fight announcement” at 12 noon and “it’s not to be missed”. I’m guessing we will find out who is on The One’ undercard. That’s been a bigger who dunnit than the announcement of the fight itself. The potential undercard for ‘The One’ is a major topic of discussion these last couple weeks and tons of scenarios have been tossed around. Here’s a short list of the ones I’ve heard through the grapevine… #1 Danny Garcia vs Lucas Matthysse No big secret there. This is the fight that’s been on…
