    Tyson vs Jones comeback 'exhibition'

    If it's truly an 'exhibition' I think it has to be a draw. Possibly no judges. Hopefully not scripted, but I see what you are saying for sure. I know they will hype it up all the way to fight day. I'd like to see an honest fight though. Perhaps it will inspire a comeback from Tyson. Who knows. 🤠

    Tyson vs Jones comeback 'exhibition'

    Can't watch the video at the moment but I think they will map out how the fight will go beforehand. Like maybe the plan will be for Roy to bounce around & pepper him with shots in the center of the ring, then they move to the ropes & Roy will lay on them with his guard up while Mike pretends to unload. I see it going back & forth like that with some real exchanges here & there & fight ends up a draw.
  4. It's set for September 12th for now... Should this happen? Who wins? My money is on Tyson because of his skills. No matter his age. 🥊 🥊 I think Roy will come to fight, but I don't he will come out of this 'exhibition' on top. Check out Shawn porters take:

    Ryan Garcia Vs. Luke Campbell

    Yeah tbh on paper its seems like too big of a step up for Garcia. Does anybody think Ry at this stage in his career can give Loma a good fight like Campbel did? That's a hell no for me.

    Ryan Garcia Vs. Luke Campbell

    Same for me with Campbell. I had never heard of him before. After I see him box I can make a guess on who would win.

    Ryan Garcia Vs. Luke Campbell

    For boxing sake Ryan winning would be good but man he needs to walk it like he talks it

    Ryan Garcia Vs. Luke Campbell

    I need to watch some tape on this one, haven't seen enough of Garcia tbh. But for now I'm picking Campbell cause he's more experienced & has actually fought thru adversity before whereas im not sure Garcia has.
  9. Who wins this fight? " Sulaiman’s announcement came a few hours after the WBO mandated their own world title eliminator between Garcia and Emmanuel Tagoe of Ghana. Tagoe, (31-1-1, 15 knockouts), who resides in Accra, Ghana, is promoted by Lou DiBella."

      Well thanks, although it seems a little wierd you could just give me three strikes all at once like that, and for a bogus reason like spamming.

  11. Weight played a minimal minor role, he is fat and has been fat all his life so the weight was not a strange thing to to him. He just got lazy, partied, ate and drank like a boss, etc, etc.
  12. That was not a car accident, that was poor decision making that resulted in a car accident.
  13. I agree, most of them know how to do it, and how it's done. But teaching it is the problem with most of them.
  14. breadman response about trainers Why do average boxers make great trainers? Mcgirt, Roach, Mayweather etc.. Bread’s Response: 1. I don’t think Buddy McGirt or Roger Mayweather were average boxers. Mcgirt was among the P4P best in the early 90s and he’s in the HOF. Mayweather was a handful for anyone in the 80s and he won titles in 2 weight classes. Neither were average. But I will delve into this deep on a more broad scope. In boxing people are always questioning the background of the trainers. At one time there was a myth that FATHERS couldn’t train their SONS. That Myth has been totally dispelled in the last decade or so…. Boxing SKEPTICS and SUPER CRITICS. When you look for something to discredit you will find it no matter what. If a TRAINER gets a fighter at the middle stage of his career. The SKPETIC will say he has a fighter who is built already, despite having to break bad ingrained habits that the fighter had before he went to the trainer. If a trainer trains a fighter since he was child, the SKEPTIC will say the fighter was a prodigy and he would be good with anyone. If the trainer is an ex fighter someone will question what style he can teach in relation to what style the trainer fought. I actually heard a fighter say Roy Jones couldn’t teach a jab because he didn’t use one. How ridiculous is it to assume the GREAT Roy Jones couldn’t teach a jab because he didn’t use one often? Hypothetically what if Ray Robinson was a trainer and a southpaw asked him to train him. The SKEPTIC could say Robinson can’t train a southpaw because he wasn’t one. Or maybe if a fighter gets clipped and kod and iron chinned Marvin Hagler was his trainer. The SKEPTIC could say Hagler can’t teach a fighter to come back from a ko because he’s never been kod. The SKEPTIC and Super Critic will find a way, trust me. And now often you will hear someone say that if a trainer wasn’t a fighter himself then he can’t train a fighter, or what level of fighter one has to be in order to make a good trainer. There is NO set prerequisite. Just because you experienced something doesn’t mean you can articulate to someone else how they should experience it. It’s absurd to think that the Prerequisite of being a trainer is being an ex fighter. Sure it HELPS but it’s not mandatory. Too many great trainers were NOT ex fighters. You can’t explain their success with LUCK or exceptions to the RULE. Would you tell a Brain Surgeon, that they had to have had Brain Surgery, in order to perform a Brain Surgery? It even sounds crazy. Or better yet just because someone had Brain Surgery doesn’t mean they can perform the surgery themselves. Smart people have applied and taught things to students throughout the history of time without being able to or have never did the things they taught. They just understood what they were teaching. Humans have taught horses to run faster. They have taught Lions and Tigers tricks in the circus. They have taught dogs and cocks to fight. I don’t mean to sound brutal but this is all true. Human are the most intelligent beings on earth. The last time I checked none of us are lions, tigers, horses, cocks or dogs. But it doesn’t stop of us from teaching them…. It’s gotten to a point where trainers LIE about their boxing backgrounds just to have credibility. They lie about the number of amateur fights they had because that’s hard to verify. I even had one tell me he fought under an assumed name and was 3-1 as pro without me asking him anything about his background. I could care less about anyone’s background unless they’re applying for a job with me. If you can train, you can train. More importantly it takes literally $20 to get a license as pro fighter and have a fight. Guys go to Mexico or North Carolina to get WINS all the time. Now imagine if one of those guys who’s record is 2-9 who was an “opponent” in North Carolina told you he was a pro fighter, so let him train your son. In that case being a pro means nothing. The criticism I think originates from jealous ex fighters who can’t get prominent training jobs as the head coach that they think they deserve. The sit in the gym on side and criticize everything the other trainers are doing. Speaking of Freddie Roach. I vividly remember an influential person in boxing saying to me before Amir Khan fought Zab Judah that Judah would win because Pernell Whitaker is a much better fighter than Freddie Roach. Whitaker was training Judah and Roach was training Khan. Khan dominated Judah in a unification fight. The fight wasn’t close. The person who said that to me I would never name them publicly but my reply was, “So Khan and Judah have nothing to do with the outcome?” I often hear Virgil Hunter get discredited because he wasn’t an ex pro fighter. I’ve been around Hunter. He has a boxing back ground. It just may not be formal but he has one. He’s strong and coordinated and you can tell he knows his way around a boxing ring. You can tell he’s swapped some punches. He has a deep understanding of boxing. But for some reason his work with Andre Ward gets discredited. It’s crazy to think he had a kid since he was about 9 or 10 years old. That kid wins a gold medal. Loses less than a handful of amateur fights. Then goes undefeated in the pros. The kid is a 1st ballot HOF. The kid relies on technical ability and conditioning more than he does athleticism and people want to make it out to be LUCK. Or say Ward would have been good with anyone. I always ask, “how would you know if he would have been good with anyone.” He turned out to be great under one man. Naazim Richardson is another trainer who doesn’t have an extensive background as a fighter to my knowledge. But he can train his butt off. He’s produced Olympians, amateur champions, solid pros and world champion pros. Angel Garcia has Danny Garcia very close to being a HOF. Angel Garcia to my knowledge is not an ex fighter. Nacho Beristain may have case for being the best coach ever. He wasn’t a fighter. Cus D mato to my knowledge had a limited background as an actual boxer. Enzo Calzaghe took his son to 46-0. That’s not luck. Enzo Calzaghe was a Jazz musician. The big one is Angelo Dundee. Archie Moore was originally supposed to train Muhammad Ali as he turned pro. Moore and Ali couldn’t get along for some reason. Ali just wouldn’t buy into Moore’s philosophy. Ali released Moore and went to the HOF under Dundee. Not just HOF but he has a case for the best fighter ever. To top it off Ali faced off with George Foreman who had Moore and Sandy Saddler in his corner. Moore and Saddler in 1974 were top 25 ever fighters at that point in history. Ali beat Foreman. Ali is obviously special but if you based your opinion of who would win that fight on who had great ex fighters in their corner you would have lost BIG. Dundee has actually went up against Emanuel Steward, Eddie Futch, Ray Arcel and Freddie Brown and he has wins vs ALL of them. He was also in the corner when George Foreman beat Michael Moorer and when Carmen Basilio beat Ray Robinson! No way that can be LUCK. Dundee was a very SMART guy. Just imagine a man who was NOT an ex fighter, who has 5 or 6 of the biggest wins in history! The reason why boxing is so primitive is because this MYTH keeps getting repeated in the first place. All great trainers have something in common. Intelligence, leadership and work ethic. If you notice often times great trainers or prominent trainers were either involved in the military, law enforcement or have their own businesses (legal/illegal). There is a large % of trainers who fall into one of those categories, that’s no coincidence. The better trainers have the ability to articulate to a fighter what they want him to do in a way the fighter understands it. They have the ability to retain information and pass it on. To answer you directly, I think great fighters can also be great trainers too. I think they often stumble with fighters who weren’t as good as them because they get to the point where they start insulting the fighter. You will hear them say, “When I was fighting I did X,Y and Z.” The problem with that is the fighter they are training is not as talented as they were. Great fighters don’t have the patience sometimes to wait on a fighter to develop. They want to start the fighter were they LEFT OFF, instead of where the STARTED OUT. But that doesn’t mean great fighters can’t train. It just means they may not always have the patience to deal with fighters with less ability than them. Where as a fighter who wasn’t as talented may have more patience training someone who is not an UBER talent. I have worked against some HOF level trainers. But the scariest trainer to me is the guy who has not got his break yet. It’s the guy who hasn’t made 10k in one night as a trainer yet. 90% of the trainers in boxing have not had a fighter who has made 100k. So therefore most trainers have not made 10k yet. The HUNGRY trainer will study hours of video against your fighter. The trainer who won’t let any stone go unturned. I don’t care what his back ground is. I care about where he wants to go. The trainer who may figure out what your fighter’s weaknesses are that you’re hiding from the world. That’s the scary trainer. I have had many older and more experienced trainers tell me I spoil my fighters and I do too much. That they don’t worry about how much a fighter rehydrates. They don’t worry about a fighter’s weight. Once in Vegas I heard a very famous trainer say I’m not checking his weight he knows what he’s supposed to weigh. His fighter missed weight. They don’t go running with fighters in the morning. All of the things I’ve done religiously for a decade. I’ve felt stupid at times because I run myself ragged. But I’ve come to realize that I’m young and hungry and I want to win. And those trainers have missed things going into fights that I wouldn’t miss. They were dismissive to things I would never be dismissive to. But in fairness their fighters are most likely more self sufficient than mines because their fighters had to have the integrity to do the right thing when no one was looking. When talking about these things you have to cover ALL bases not just the bases that make you look good. Boxing is the land of the Super Critic. Everyone thinks they can do better than the other guy. And instead of getting a fighter and doing better they try to tear that guy down. Great trainers actually come from all backgrounds and levels of experience. The main thing they need is intelligence and work ethic. Speaking of fighters who can train. I think Malik Scott and Jaron Ennis will both make great trainers one day but they come from different ends of the spectrum. Scott has a great understanding of boxing. He’s also articulate and he’s a gym rat. Scott is a solid heavyweight contender. Ennis has P4P potential. Ennis is probably the most talented prospect in all of boxing. He’s a patient nice kid, who actually hits the pads with other kids in his gym. My point is that you can’t limit the background or type of fighter a good trainer can be.
  15. History tells us the best fighters make shit trainers. And the best bball players make shit coaches too. TBE has the ability, but not the dedication to get anywhere near this as anything but a dream. He'll continue his role as adviser/manager imho.
  16. Former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has made a decision to explore the scenario of being a boxing trainer in order to follow in the footsteps of his late uncle Roger Mayweather. https://www.boxingscene.com/mayweather-i-one-best-trainers-world--148197
  17. Veteran trainer Teddy Atlas believes the issue of "weight" should not be viewed as a major factor in last December's fight between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz. In June of 2019, Ruiz dropped Joshua four times and stopped him in the seventh round. The December rematch was completely different fight, as Joshua fought at a distance and easily outboxed Ruiz for a twelve round unanimous decision to reclaim the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world titles. For the rematch, Ruiz was out of shape and admitted that he partied for two months in the aftermath of beating Joshua - which led him to start training camp late. But Atlas does not see weight as the issue here. He would expect the same outcome if Ruiz had been in better shape. He felt Ruiz was not prepared to deal with a fighter who was boxing from the outside - and Atlas saw Ruiz make similar mistakes when he lost to Joseph Parker in 2016. Ruiz, who parted ways with trainer Manny Robles, expressed interest in hiring Atlas - who never heard back from the heavyweight with respect to coming together for a few days to test the chemistry. "Everyone said, ‘It’s because of the weight.’ I’m going to say that even if he [Ruiz] came in lighter after what I saw, I would say that he still would have lost the fight,” said Atlas to The Express. "He still would have lost to Joshua even if he had come into the fight lighter. It had nothing to do with the weight. It’s what he didn’t know technically how to deal with a guy boxing from the outside. I can’t help you if you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. "If you don’t confess to is so to speak and if you don’t acknowledge it. And if you’re not willing to change, I can’t help you. I’m not going to go in there just to get a payday. I’m going in there to win and make a difference. It’s a serious business. I would want to know if he’s on board and where he is mentally. It would have been a couple of days in New York to go through those things, and they were going to call me. The call never came." Written by Boxing Clever. Boxingscene.com
  18. Errol Spence Jr. is extremely thankful that injuries he sustained during an October car accident didn’t ruin his boxing career. Now that he has had six months to reflect on what happened that frightening night in downtown Dallas, Spence has taken what happened to him as a sign to change his behavior outside of the ring. The unbeaten IBF/WBC welterweight champion says he has re-dedicated himself to training the way he prepared prior to knocking out Kell Brook to win the IBF 147-pound title in May 2017. The 30-year-old Spence discussed his comeback with Premier Boxing Champions’ Ray Flores as part of a lengthy, wide-ranging Instagram Live interview Monday. “I feel like my car accident was the wake-up call from God, telling me to really focus and, you know, bite down and re-focus on what’s going on,” Spence said. “And I feel like I wasn’t as focused as I am now. It’s kind of like from the Kell Brook fight or before that, like how focused I am now. I feel like I’m really trying to put my all into it because I’ve got a lot of stuff to prove people wrong. “You know, it’s a lot of things that people been saying on YouTube. Or, ‘Is he still gonna be the same? Can he fight the same? You know, is his reflexes still gonna be the same?’ So, I’ve still got a lot to prove in the ring, and to prove to other people that, you know, I’m still the same Errol Spence.” Spence suffered cuts to his face and damage to his teeth when his Ferrari flipped over multiple times in a one-car accident that occurred in the early-morning hours of October 10. Dallas police charged the DeSoto, Texas, native with driving while intoxicated as a result of his accident. Spence, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from his car. The 2012 U.S. Olympian’s accident happened a week and a half after Spence edged Shawn Porter by split decision in their 12-round welterweight title unification fight September 28 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Spence revealed to Flores that his lack of discipline between bouts contributed to him reaching roughly 190 pounds, 43 above the welterweight limit, before he began training for the Porter fight. “Even [before] the Shawn Porter fight,” Spence said, “I was blowing up to like – Shawn Porter and the Mikey Garcia fight. Matter of fact, the Mikey Garcia fight, the day of the weigh-ins I had to sit in a sauna for like two hours. I didn’t sweat, and I had a sauna bag on and everything, and I didn’t sweat until like probably an hour [after] being in the sauna. And I didn’t sweat at all. Even [before] the Shawn Porter fight, I had blown up to like 190 or something like that. And then, you know, had to lose it all and then killing myself to make weight.” Success spoiled Spence (26-0, 21 KOs), who hasn’t lost since the welterweight quarterfinals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. “Just getting too comfortable,” Spence said. “Getting too comfortable. Getting way too comfortable. Eating a lot. I think Marvin Hagler was the one that said it’s hard to get up, you know, when you’re sleeping in silk sheets.” Spence isn’t sure when he’ll return to the ring. He didn’t have a fight scheduled when the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly brough all boxing business to a halt. Keith Idec is a senior writer/columnist for BoxingScene.com.

  19. Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn is not one to shy away from taking risks and being first to market. Over the last year, the promoter secured a $50 million site fee to stage a heavyweight fight in Saudi Arabia despite human rights concerns and he’s also partnered with Paul brothers Logan and Jake and pitted the celebrities in the ring with separate bouts as boxers. Like many other boxing promoters, Hearn has had to suspend his full slate of shows around the U.K. and U.S. from March through June because of coronavirus. UFC boss Dana White announced Monday that he’s moving forward with his April 18 ESPN Plus pay per view to an unknown island in the U.S. despite losing his original main event (Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson) and venue (Barclays Center) in recent days. "It's unbelievable, I'd like to think that in boxing, there's no one more ‘roll your sleeves up and get on with it’ than me," Hearn told Express Sport. "But even I wouldn't consider staging an event right now. I'm not even thinking about options, not even on the radar. "This is stubbornness [by the UFC]. These are many of the things that make [Dana White] successful but at some point you have to sit back and say 'white flag.' I'm quite surprised ESPN is going ahead with this, obviously they want ratings and money. But with Sky Sports and DAZN, I would not be allowed to stage events right now. It's bad taste to be quite honest. "[Dana White] wants to be a trailblazer, people have told him he can't do it. But I know the feeling of being told something and you do it anyway. Half of me admires him for cracking on but the other half says 'come on don't be mad.’” The UFC announced Monday that UFC 249 will be headlined by Ferguson and Justin Gaethje for the interim title and consist of 12 fights overall. White will be able to conceivably book flights and fights for international mixed martial artists who couldn't come travel to the U.S. under the current travel ban. White plans on making the yet-to-be-announced location a new home for UFC for the immediate future until coronavirus is no more. "So this place where this fight is going to be on April 18 I have locked up for two months, so I'm going to continue to pump fights out,” White told ESPN on Monday. “The infrastructure is being built right now. We're going to do all of our international fights on this island … We're going to start cranking. The UFC will be back up and running, internationally and here in the States. "Health and safety is something we worry about all the time, not just during the coronavirus. Obviously, this has made our jobs a little tougher, but we're going to do everything above and beyond to make sure everybody is safe, just like we always do. A lot of things will be different." Hearn shared that he’s taking an entirely different approach than White with boxing, and he doesn’t mind sitting it out even though fighters like Regis Prograis, who was supposed to headline a Hearn-promoted show next week in Maryland against Maurice Hooker, are calling for Hearn to follow White’s path at securing an island for boxing matches as well. "I was on the phone with [Top Rank head] Bob Arum yesterday with Pulev's team too and Arum's like 'I like you guys but why are we wasting our time on this call? Let's speak at the end of the month and we'll know more'," said Hearn. "[Coronavirus] hasn't really affected our business too much. Financially we're okay, other than some initial costs which we couldn't get back. We've built up a decent business over the last eight years, we're in a strong position with good liquidity."

    Iyanna Mayweather arrested!

    This is sad , as a father I wish this on no parent unlike Twitter and nate who live for another mans downfall
  22. Singer and social media celebrity Iyanna “Yaya” Mayweather, the daughter of boxer Floyd Mayweather, was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court documents. Mayweather, 19, was taken to a jail in Harris County, Texas, around 1:30 a.m. after a 25-year-old woman was stabbed and hospitalized, said Capt. Jonathan Zitzmann of the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office. The woman suffered non-life threatening injuries and underwent surgery, he said. An altercation between Mayweather, rapper NBA Youngboy and a woman named Lapattra Lashai Jacobs turned violent Friday night, prompting law enforcement to show up at the rapper's home and arrest Mayweather, according to TMZ, which first reported the arrest. Zitzmann said police arrived at the scene after emergency medical staff responded to a 911 call shortly before 7 p.m. The medical staff that helped the injured woman contacted police and alerted them to the possible altercation. NBA Youngboy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, and Mayweather used to be in a relationship. Jacobs has a child with the rapper, according to TMZ. Recommended
