Boxing Starting to Find Its Way

While much of the boxing world focusing on the aftermath of the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, what is being missed are the young boxing stars making their marks.  Saul Alvarez is one of those stars and his three round demolition of James Kirkland showed a young fighter developing into a star.  Since his loss to Mayweather, he won three in a row, two knock out victories and a close split decision victory over Erislandy Lara.

Despite being 24 years old, he is now 45-1, with his only loss to Floyd Mayweather.  While many pundits are not sure how to rate Mayweather, one milepost to judge him will be the career of Alvarez.  If Alvarez becomes an elite fighter in his own right, this certainly enhances Mayweather’s own legacy as he defeated Alvarez when Alvarez was 22 years old and coming off impressive victory over Austin Trout.   Mayweather gave the bigger Alvarez a boxing lesson and Alvarez may be that fighter that years from now that will cement Mayweather’s own greatness to higher heights.

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

M vs. P
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.

This weekend (NBC TV) Keith Thurman faces off against Robert Guerrero for what is called the interim WBA championship so I guess this is for a belt even though WBA also has Floyd Mayweather as the unified champion.  So who knows and who cares, the winner will receive a belt and be able to declare himself a champion.

For Thurman, this could be his toughest fight as Guerrero has some of the best in the business and is one of the toughest fighters. Guerrero began his career as a boxer, thus the nick name “Ghost”, but as he moved up in weight; he changed his style from being a boxer to being a banger.  Guerrero has only two losses, one that he revenged against Gamaliel Diaz and to Floyd Mayweather.

Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

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!
