Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

Last week it was officially announced that finally Floyd Mayweather 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!

Bermane vs. Wilder … WBC heavyweight title

 Bermane vs. Wilder ... WBC heavyweight title

By Tom Donelson / Member Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA)

Deontay Wilder takes on Bermane Stiverne in an event that is totally unusual; an American in a heavyweight bout that means something.   Stiverne’s WBC heavyweight title is on the line and the undefeated Wilder has the opportunity to win a heavyweight, something no Americans have done since Shannon Briggs defeated Siarhei Liakovich for Liakovich WBO title nearly nine years ago.

The fight is a challenging one to predict. The one thing we can say with reasonable certainty is that it will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on October 18.

This is a fight between the strong European power puncher Genedy Golovkin and veteran Marco Antonio Rubio.

Once again, short and not-so sweet in this summer heat!

Rematch time.

Marco Maidana, who almost beat undefeated Floyd Mayweather in their previous match, now takes on the multi time champion in a rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on September 13.

A lot of folks thought Maidana had won their previous fight, although I was not one of them.

In their last battle, Maidana who is a puncher/brawler goaded Mayweather into a brawl, and Mayweather took the bait and decided to brawl with a brawler. That stupid decision almost cost him dearly.

All Mayweather had to do than, and now, is play hit and run and he’s going to give Maidana (and the fans) a very long night.
