Re: Boxing Thread

The annual tradition of having Chocolatito fight on the same day as Golovkin will continue

Quote:
Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez is rising in weight to challenge junior bantamweight titleholder Carlos Cuadras on Sept. 10 in a bout that will headline a card at The Forum in Los Angeles on HBO (10 p.m. ET), it was announced on Wednesday.

Gonzalez-Cuadras will serve as a split-site doubleheader with Gennady Golovkin’s middleweight championship fight with Kell Brook from 02 Arena in London. Golovkin-Brook will air live on HBO during the late afternoon of Sept. 10 while Gonzalez-Cuadras will be shown at night together with Golovkin-Brook in a tape-delay.

Re: Boxing Thread

Eddie Hearn is claiming Miguel Cotto turned down the opportunity to face Kell Brook this summer.

Quote:
Miguel Cotto was offered a super fight with welterweight titleholder Kell Brook at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the summertime but turned it down, according to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn, who handles Brook. HBO was behind the match-up, but Cotto’s promoter, Roc Nation, turned it down, according to Hearn, who pitched the idea. Roc Nation did not immediately return an email for comment.

That would have been the perfect, perfect fight,” Hearn said. “HBO loved the fight and I spoke to Roc Nation and they said we don’t want to fight Kell Brook. And I don’t blame them because Kell Brook hasn’t got the name in the U.S. yet, and it’s too much risk for Miguel Cotto. There’s easier guys for Cotto to fight with bigger profiles in the U.S., so that fight never made sense to Cotto.”

Credit to Eddie Hearn for at least throwing the dice and attempting to land Brook a fight of that magnitude.

Re: Boxing Thread

Not the most scintillating performance from Mr. Wilder but he handled Arreola with ease. His jab is a beautiful weapon. It's like he's thudding his opponents with a giant steel rod. He's still a little lackadaisical when it comes to defense though, very open whilst laying against the ropes, that could be exploited by someone like Anthony Joshua. His size, athleticism and power make him a formidable task for anyone to overcome.

Deontay says he broke his right hand, that's actually impressive that he was able to dominate Arreola solely relying on his left hand

All I said is he's looking for a payday. The UK ppv-market is 20% tops (because the culture is differentt here) of the U.S ppv-market. He doesn't want that. He wants a big fight that brit ain't s...

Less impressed by Wilder than disgusted by Arreola and his team. There has got to be a better way to finish that fight than to not get up between rounds.

Re: Boxing Thread

Looks like Danny Garcia is no longer involved in the Pacquiao sweepstakes.....

Quote:
Danny Garcia, who has been rumored to face a number of high-profile fighters, is targeting a Sept. 24 return on Showtime, a source with knowledge of Garcia’s plans told RingTV.com on Tuesday.

An opponent is being determined, but Garcia (32-0, 18 knockouts) is obviously not coming back to face Manny Pacquiao, the source said. And though the timetable remains fluid, Sept. 24 is a working date for now.

Deontay Wilder could possibly be out for the rest of the year due to the injuries he sustained during Saturday's fight.
