What the heck is Super Light Middleweight? It's not enough that there are a ton of champions from different organizations around, they still have more than 50 different weightclasses?

I love the fact he had the Biebs holding his belts. That was a pretty damn funny thing to do.

I thought Cotto would have done better honestly. I think that unfortunately just kind of proves Mayweather is that good.

Either he fights Pacquiao and not only give the people what they want, but once and for all prove if he is indeed the best fighter of his time as he claims, or he should just retire now, with a blemish forever on his record. There really is nothing left for him to do at this point then either of the above.

The reason why Floyd doesn't fight Pacquiao is that he would have to buy a separate house just for all the belts he would then have. In a more serious note, certain boxing associations wouldn't be too keen on the idea of just one guy, very close to retiring, holding all the goddamn belts for 20 different weightclasses.

The Telegraph reports that UK heavyweights Dereck ?Del Boy? Chisora and former WBA champion David Haye will meet in the ring on July 14 at Upton Park, London, home of the West Ham soccer team.

According to the report, the fight, which will be announced at a press conference tomorrow, will be jointly promoted by Frank Warren?s BoxNation and German promotional outfit Sauerland Event.

The fight will go ahead with or without the blessing of the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC), an organization whose entire reason for existing may take a permanent hit if they fail to sanction Haye vs Chisora.

Mayweather is terrified of Pacquiao. If those 2 fought, the 35 million he got for this fight will be a drop in the bucket.

People keep saying that but I don't think there's really any truth to it. He's a grown man and a talented boxer in his own right, one of the P4P greats. Why should he fear Pacquiao over every other tough opponent that he's faced? Mayweather was negotating with Pacquiao's camp in February before getting denied and fighting Cotto. It would be the ideal fight for him to retire on.

It's just a money and management issue. Either guys wins the fight, you have someone who holds more than a dozen belts and who's pretty close to retirement, leaving all of those belts ripe for the taking. So they want to make sure the money is worth the risk they're taking with their fighter in a PPV that would break records.

Personally, I don't care who wins that fight. Either way, the real loser is British boxing. Their press conference brawl already damaged our reputation, and now this will only make things worse. The rising stars of British boxing (like Kell Brook, George Groves, Kid Galahad, etc.) will have to work even harder to get recognised by the rest of the world.

On another note: Amir Khan's Golden Boy Promotions write to IBF and the WBA to request annullation of Lamont Peterson fight - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/boxing/9262893/Amir-Khans-Golden-Boy-Promotions-write-to-IBF-and-the-WBA-to-request-annullation-of-Lamont-Peterson-fight.html

And so they should. Peterson failed multiple drugs tests, and it seems he was taking performance-enhancing drugs up to a month before the fight, so he should be stripped of both titles and their fight declared a no-contest. Or at the very least, strip him of the titles, and have Khan fight for them against whoever he's got lined up in July.

or Tyson Fury :rofl:

it seems though Frank Warren wants to continue pressing for the match to go ahead which could result in his license being taken

Manny Pacquiao Vs. Timothy Bradley was a scoring travesty.

I bet Mayweather breathed a sigh of relief from his prison cell at that fight

Corrupt judges probably.

But at least Pacquiao took it humbly.

Riding his luck? Did you see the match last night? He out boxed Bradley, no question about it. Landing more punches by a long shot. I think Manny had 100+ punches more landed than Bradley.

      Nintendo's "ARMS" has players engaging in intense boxing matches, coming in spring 2017
      by Usama Jawad

      At its Switch presentation yesterday, Nintendo announced a number of games for its upcoming hybrid console. These included Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Mania, Fire Emblem Warriors, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and 1-2 Switch.

      The company also unveiled another boxing game called ARMS.



      ARMS appears to be inspired from the boxing mode in Wii Sports - that was launched back in 2006. It has a similar premise, that is, pitting players against each other or against the computer in an intense boxing match. Players can utilize a number of moves including jumping, punching, charged punches, sidestepping, and dodging, among others.

      All this can be done using the detached Joy-Con controllers that are held in a vertical thumbs-up position, so that the player can easily press various combinations of buttons to perform different combat moves. ARMS makes use of motion controls for in-game movement, that is required to dodge and move characters.

      Additionally, the characters in the game are colorful in appearance, very similar to the ones in Blizzard's Overwatch. These characters can be customized to the extent that players can wield their weapons of choice on each of their (virtual) hands. ARMS has both single player and multi-player game modes, however, the trailer does caution that you'll require additional accessories for the latter, which can be purchased separately. You can watch the trailer for the game below:

      Although ARMS doesn't have a firm release date, it is slated for a spring 2017 release on the Nintendo Switch.

      This fight is going to be one of the biggest fights of our time!
       
      I have been watching Floyd since 2007, when he fought and won against Oscar Dela Hoya.
       
      Who do you believe will win? Floyd or Pacquiao and why!
       
       
      I believe Floyd will win because of a couple of factors, first he was trained at a young age by his father who was a professional fighter at the time, thus having a huge advantage against most fighters including Pacquiao.
       
      Floyd also has a work ethic that consist of working harder and longer and I believe its because of this attitude he really will go beyond Pacquiao as he has done with all previous fighters.
       
      I am interested in hearing other perspectives on the fight.
