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.
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.

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!

Martin Murray was supposed to give Golovkin competition for triple G’s title and for the first three rounds, he did. Murray countered the advancing with Golovkin with solid rights and body shots while Golovkin was attempting to find ways around Murray defenses. While it was obvious who was the more powerful puncher but Murray showed to be a tough fighter who could take GGG’s best.
Going into the fourth round, this was close but Golovkin turned the fight around and turn a close battle into a battle of survival for Murray. Halfway through the round, Golovkin threw a haymaker that Murray avoided but as Murray was attempting to escape; Golovkin nailed him with a body shot that sent Murray down. Murray survived the count but Golovkin attacked with ferocity and as the Triple G’s landed solid combinations, Murray simply knelt down to avoid more punishment. He survived the round but from this point; Golovkin had control of the fight.

She has been called “This Television Season’s It Girl”. She just won a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actress In A Television Series Musical Or Comedy”. She just had a full page picture of her, with her Golden Globe and that winning smile splashed across the pages of People Magazine! She’ll be on the cover of the March 2015 issue of Latina Magazine. Gina Rodriguez seems to be everywhere, riding high on a wave of success based on her portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the hit TV series “Jane The Virgin”. And quite frankly… it couldn’t happen to a nicer person! She’s bright, articulate, she hasn’t forgotten her roots and she’s a role model.
