Tom Brady, though past the age of 40, can still sling a football for the Patriots and may still be the best quarterback in the NFL, and a 40 year old Manny Pacquiao showed that he can still win a tough fight against an undefeated younger opponent. This was a close fight in which Keith Thurman reversed his usual M.O. of being a fast starter and often finding himself in pitched battles over the second half of fights. Part of the reason for that was Pacquiao, who came out smoking, moved side to side while landing his jab which set up a right-hand hook that sent Thurman down in the first round.
Pacquiao dominated the early rounds and I had him winning the first three. Thurman’s jab was ineffectual throughout the bout and that is one of his key weapons. By winning the early rounds, Pacquiao had a nice lead on the scorecards going into the second half. In the fifth round, the Pac-Man nailed Thurman with vicious body shots.
From the sixth, the momentum seemed to change as Thurman connected on power shots. In the ninth round, Thurman forced Pacquiao briefly onto the ropes but Pacquiao landed a vicious left to Thurman’s body at the two-minute mark of the tenth round that hurt Thurman and forced him to retreat. This disrupted Thurman’s momentum and allowed Pacquiao to regain control of the fight. Both fighters landed a flurry of punches in the final round but Pacquiao won the round and clinched his victory.
The “Gio Express” pulled out of Chicago on Wednesday Morning and landed Friday Night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington where undefeated super featherweight Giovanni “Gio” Cabrera Mioletti (17 -0 – 0 with 8 wins by KO) kept his perfect record intact by earning a unanimous decision, in a 10 round super featherweight bout, over previously unbeaten Luis Porozo (14-1-0 with 7 wins by KO). The official judges scores were 98 to 92 twice and 97 to 93. For Mioletti (129.5) this was the 11th time he fought on Promoter Brian Halquist’s Battle At The Boat. He and Porozo (129.5) opened the show as the first bout which was nationally televised on Showtime’s “Showbox: The Next Generation”.
In Porozo he faced an undefeated pro, who as an amateur was a member of the Ecuadorian Olympic Boxing Team and fought in 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. And, for the first couple of rounds there was no doubt Porozo came to fight. He dominated the action, scoring almost at will with lead right hands to the head of Mioletti. But as the fight progressed Mioletti’s superior skills came to the forefront as he took control by making the necessary adjustments to dominate Porozo. Despite his amateur pedigree and undefeated pro record, Porozo was content to run, throw wide, awkward, punches, hold and often seemed more intent on surviving than winning the fight. From the third round on Miloetti took control and never looked back.

C.J. Ross is the only judge that scored the Mayweather-Canelo fight as a draw, 114-114. The other two judges scored it for Mayweather 116-112 (Dave Moretti) and 117-111 (Craig Metcalfe), giving the pound-for-pound king a majority decision victory.
After the fight boxing expert Teddy Atlas went on ESPN and said Ross’ score was a travesty and suggested she was a criminal.
Everyone in the arena was shocked by C.J.’s call … including Floyd Mayweather who mouthed the words, “What the f***” when the announcer revealed he won on a majority decision and not unanimous.
This is not the first time Cynthia J. Ross has been in a controversy scoring.
Ross is the same judge who awarded a controversial split-decision victory to Timothy Bradley against Manny Pacquiao and she loves giving draws.

We have all heard of
Ali, Frazier and Foreman. Of Tyson and Holyfield. The lighter weight
classes have produced the likes of Marvin Hagler, Thomas Hearns and Sugar Ray
Leonard. Who will ever forget Duran, Pryor and Arguello? What about the “near misses”? The ones who in
this day of multi- fractured titles would almost surely have garnered a piece
of championship pie.
Let’s start with the big boys. Jerry Quarry failed in his first title try losing a debatable decision to underrated Jimmy Ellis. In his final title shot he was out gunned by “Smokin” Joe Frazier. He would later lose a rematch to Frazier as well as two bouts to Muhammad Ali. What if there were four titles available back then? The wins on Jerry’s resume are impressive to say the least. Floyd Patterson, Thad Spencer, Buster Mathis, Jack Bodell, Larry Middleton, Mac Foster, Ron Lyle and a one round blow out of Earnie Shavers. It would be very safe to say that Jerry was among the top four or five heavyweights of that era. Then it is also safe to assume that he would have copped at least a portion of title recognition.
It is very hard for me to believe that John Ruiz could have defeated Jerry.
