    As Conor McGregor prepares for the biggest fight of his life just one month away as he faces Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match on Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, he’s moved his camp to Las Vegas where he’s been working with several new training partners. Retired boxing champion and Showtime color commentator Paulie Malignaggi joined the ranks of McGregor’s team last week when he showed up to offer the UFC champion some sparring rounds after a critical assessment of his chances to beat Mayweather in a boxing match. http://www.mmaweekly.com/paulie-malignaggi-critical-of-conor-mcgregors-knockout-power-for-boxing

    Good read. I myself think power and chins we all posses. But to me it is the timing of the punch landed, and also the timing of the punch received that produces the desired effects.

    The Contender, the show that jump-started the careers of future titleholders like Ishe Smith and Sergio Mora, is returning to television. The boxing reality series will come back in the fall with a new, 12-episode season on EPIX, it was announced Monday. Sixteen fighters will battle it out for a six-figure prize, and more importantly, to grab recognition in an attempt to springboard their careers. “Boxing belongs on premium pay television and there is no better home for The Contenderthan EPIX,” said series producer Mark Burnett, a guru of reality TV responsible for shows like Shark Tank and The Apprentice. “We will tell stories of the fighters, the families and their difficult journeys in the emotionally compelling Contender style so that viewers get to vicariously walk a mile in the boxers’ shoes.” The weight class of the fighters wasn’t revealed, but the athletes will be divided into two teams to train, with a “renowned boxing coach” overseeing each squad. The show debuted in 2005 on NBC and ran each of the next three years, with the network home moving to ESPN for Seasons 2 and 3 before it culminated on Versus (now NBCSN). This is the first time the show will be on premium cable, which should add a new element with far less censorship. “The Contender has launched the careers of many fighters, with some Contenders taking world titles,” said Michael Wright, President of EPIX, a network that once televise boxing matches like Alexander Povetkin-Marco Huck and David Haye-Dereck Chisora. “But this new iteration of the series will also showcase the heart, spirit and dramatic personal stories of these fighters as they fight in and out of the ring to realize their dreams. “This is not only real boxing, but real, raw human storytelling from the best unscripted television production team in the world.”

    The top end of womens boxing is becoming a good watch; I guess it will be more readily accepted when there are more fighters in a division that can show off good quality skills!

    we all got bamboozled , rigo goes 12 rds at times throws nill and just moves and has no issues boring people to the point they walk out during his fights, but now landing around 3 punches a round took such a mental toll he quit after 5 rds

    rigo wasn't close to death, didn't have anything broken.....well, except his spirit and will to fight. like i said before, he's used to beating up on teenagers with head gear on. he fought a tough guy and couldn't handle the pressure and took the easy way out.

    Personally I think its a load of bollocks, if your fucked up mentally, badly hurt, have a number of injuries and can hardly stand because you have been worn down its the sensible thing to step down - too many heroes have ended up with brain damage - The Warrior Code

    Wow that hand looks fucked up & he had a legit excuse. He didn't quit due to being fat & out of shape like Duran.

    And the fact is that these are all made up categories that resemble styles of famous boxers over the years. Does it really matter if someone is a slugger vs a brawler? What are the subtle differences between the 2? Also, ... Couldn't a volume puncher be a swarmer if he is winning on work rate? Maybe a pressure fighter has shitty technique but the slugger throws punches with good technique. It depends on the fighter. I love when I read online articles that make these definitions 'absolutes' lmao. Have you guys ever these old school adages: Swarmer beats Boxer Slugger beats Swarmer Boxer beats Slugger Just as simple as ... " With a southpaw ALWAYS keep your lead foot outside his." .... Maybe, ..Maybe not.

    Hmmm, Canelo by split. I don't think size is an issue only because if I heard correctly Canelo's last fight he weighed in a few lbs lighter. He looks bigger than GGG but I think it's more appearance than anything else. They are both good fighters. I am rooting for Canelo more because I can't stand Golovkins mouth lol

    On the plus side he has finally proved that he still has the ability to knock someone out

    LOL...please don't speak on things you know nothing of. And I am speaking to the two 70 year old boxing prudes in the room. I stopped listening to them when they claimed Caenelo was an overrated bum. I accepted that shitty opinion but leave MMA out of your 70 year old mouths.

    Weak... The attitude anyway. I saw him (Davis) on Instagram talking about the people he thought were with him turning their backs ... To lose a belt and potentially be fined over 2lbs is big shit. Making weight is HARD sometimes..esp if it's not a weight you can easily maintain but at this level.. I expect guys to make weight by the time they step on the scale. smh Hmm.... lol

    This fight is happening tonight. A lot of haters or people talking smack about it... but I will take this over the Maygregor circus any day. I have never heard of Adler ... 16-0 most of her fights in Germany. Shields has the resume, international experience and technique to stay on top until the talent pool grows. Until then I am eager to see if she will steamroll over this girl like all the rest.

    Make it a double booking - AJ would KO the pair of them on the same night. And still not break sweat.

    after watching english football, i noticed that the english call everyone boy, regardless of race. they call ronaldo boy, rooney boy, vidic boy. "that boy made a great tackle" "that boy scored a beautiful goal". only in the u.s. is it considered racist. mcgregor isn't.

    I have to agree on that Floyd makes more money out of this fight than he does by facing anyone else as does Connor

    Saturation. In the u.s., there are boxing matches on tv probably 4-5 times a week. ufc is on way less and on crappy ass channels no one knows about. so, the fans are so hungry for fights, they are willing to ppv. supply and demand. low supply, high demand.
