I have always been intrigued with boxing trivia. This started when I was a young boy in 1961. I would pick the minds of the older generation and ask them questions about their era to expand my knowledge. I am delighted to bring boxing trivia to my website on a quarterly basis. Five questions will appear in March, June, September, and December – with the answers to follow for viewing by the end of each posting month. Continue reading

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao … “My early prediction”

M vs. P 229x300 Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao ... My early prediction
By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

Last month on February 20, 2015 it was made official that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (WBA/WBC welterweight champion) and Manny Pacquiao (WBO welterweight champion) would “finally” meet in a boxing ring after years of talk and speculation.

I have always contended that this bout would happen because of the large amount of money it will generate for all. So now this huge match is set for May 2, 2015 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, on HBO and Showtime pay-per-view.

This fight is the most anticipated in boxing since Joe Frazier vs. Muhammad Ali, March 8, 1971. That fight was billed as the “Fight of the Century” and it certainly was when two undefeated champions met in their primes for the “undisputed” heavyweight championship.

Shiming loses to Ruenroeng … Broner wins over Molina … Thurman defeats Guerrero

China 300x170 Shiming loses to Ruenroeng ... Broner wins over Molina ... Thurman defeats Guerrero

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng (15-0 / 5 by KO) successfully retained his title with a unanimous 12 round decision over two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shiming(6-1 / 1 by KO) in Macau, China.

The undefeated Thai fighter overcame a second round knock down. He stuck to his game plan to box at a distance by using his jab, and counter effectively to outbox the Chinese fighter.

The judges all had identical scores of 116-111 … my unofficial scorecard was 115-112 for the winner Ruenroeng. The bout was televised by HBO2 from the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Resort in Macau, China.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

Last week it was officially announced that finally Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao will fight on May 2, 2015.

The two best boxers of their time, in our time today, will decide who is the best in the ring.

I have always contended that this fight would happen because of the huge amount of money it will generate for all.

The fight isn’t the most anticipated in my era of boxing , though ; Joe Frazier vs. Muhammad Ali on March 8, 1971 was that.  Two undefeated champions at the pinnacle of their careers for the “undisputed” heavyweight championship of the world.

However, boxing will get a big fight with Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.  The build up will take us back 44 years to what it was like for Frazier and Ali, and like that fight … this fight is good for boxing in this generation!

By popular request, I am posting the video tour of my boxing collection. I have been involved in boxing since 1961 (54 years).

Over those years I have been blessed by seeing and knowing some of the greatest fighters in the world. I live boxing every day, so I feel that my wealth of knowledge is of the highest degree.

This website was founded in July 2007. I post an average of 10 to 12 different items per month for publishing.  I appreciate my growing fan base and the support you have given me. It’s all about credibility and I strive to bring everybody the best in boxing that I can produce.

Rios “one-sided” win over Alvarado

By David Martinez / dmboxing.com

Rios A Rios one sided win over Alvarado

In their third “rubber match” fight it wasn’t even close.  Brandon Rios (33-2-1 / 23 by KO) stopped Mike Alvarado (34-3 / 23 by KO) in three rounds, at the 1st Bank Center, Broomfield, Colorado.

Rios started off quickly from the start and never looked back, punishing Alvarado almost at will in every round.  Rios dropped Alvarado with a left hook in round three, which proved to be the beginning of the end.  Alvarado survived the round (barely) but the fight was stopped after round three.

Rios claimed the vacant WBO International welterweight championship and he has certainly put himself in line for some big bouts at 147 pounds.
