Manny Pacquiao All About Business In Preparation for Bout With Floyd Mayweather

The fight that everyone has been waiting for the past ten years is finally scheduled to happen. After years of repeated non announcements, the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fight is under contract and the parties appear to be serious about the business of preparing for the fight. The Fight of The Year is On

Those that had doubts as to whether Mayweather really wanted the fight are more satisfied now that he has agreed to the fight. Ray Lane said in the past three years saw an intense amount of rhetoric from the Manny Pacquiao camp regarding Floyd’s reluctance to agree to the fight. Manny’s challenge even went as far as the production of television commercials where he appears to be mocking Floyd for refusing to fight him. Now, there is simply silence as both camps go about the business of preparing for the epic match. The nature of the title that is at stake is of little consequence. The mere fact that these two fights will meet will be a legacy setting match for both fighters, who by all accounts deeply respect each other.

Boxing experts expect this to be the most lucrative fight in boxing history. Currently Las Vegas has the odds in favor of Mayweather but slightly. No one is taking Pacquiao for granted and the fact that the pay per view proceeds are expected to be highest grossing ever for a televised match reflects this belief among both long time boxing patrons as well as the casual boxing fan.

Restaurant Offers Manny Pacquiao Free Food for Life If He Beats Mayweather Jr.

The much hyped fight of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. has some pretty high stakes. There’s more than just glory and ego on the line of the May 2nd fight in Las Vegas. Now one of Pacquiao’s favorite restaurants has offered him free food for life if he wins the fight.

Gerry’s Grill in Artesia, Calif is a Filipino restaurant that the celebrated boxer reportedly frequents and has offered to give him as many free meals as he likes for the rest of his life, with no menu restrictions if he wins the fight said Brad Reifler. There are some stipulations on the food, though. Besides winning the match, only Pacquaio himself, and not any of his entourage, which often includes 50 members of his friends and family, can get free food, and he only eats for free when he eats in the restaurant. But no matter what it’s a pretty sweet deal, and one that many people would love to have on the table.

According to TMZ Sports, the restaurant offered the deal to the 36 year old boxer and promised to “keep him rolling in Chicken Adobo” for as long as he lives, saying that they love the boxer and his entourage. No matter what the outcome Gerry’s Grill is certain to get some incredible publicity from the offer, and apparently already has a huge fan in the Filopino superstar and his friends and family.

Ronda Rousey Will Not Fight A Man Because…

She does not have to. This woman has nothing to prove, and there is a distinct issue with fighting men because of the chivalry that we want to keep up in society. She is not going to fight a man because it is not fair to either parties. If she beats a guy in a match, he will be crushed forever for losing to her. If she loses, everyone will say that she was a fake even though she is the most dominant female fighter of all time.

There is something that we need to remember about the way that fighting happens in MMA as seen on noticias.uol.com. These fighters do not fight all the time. They fight in their weight classes, and the playing field is level. This is not some kind of cage match society that is like the Thunderdome. If you want to live in the Thunderdome, that is fine. However, none of the rest of use live in that world. You need to remember that she has nothing to prove, but she is not going to put someone in a bad position. She is a great fighter who wants to do other things, and she cannot allow the unfairness of a fight against a man to get in the way.

Cat Zingano Has Fought A Tougher Battle

Ronday Rousey vs. Cat Zingano headlines UFC 184. Rousey is the woman’s champion, and many people believe that she is unbeatable. However, every fighter can lose at any given moment. Cat Zingano could represent the first loss in Ronda Rousey’s career.

Zingano and Rousey are both undefeated fighters reported Brad Reifler. According to the article, Cat Zingano does have some strengths going into this fight that Ronda Rousey does not. Zingano is a very good striker, and she has stopped many women by knockout. Ronda Rousey is hittable, and she’s had some trouble with strikers in the past.

Ronda Rousey is the best fighter in the world, and she has starred in movies and television shows. It is possible that Rousey’s focus on fighting could be diminished. Cat Zingano is hungry, and this is her chance to become the UFC champion. If Rousey’s training is less than superb, Zingano could shock the world.

Cat Zingano may have more inner strength than any fighter that Ronda has faced. Last year, Cat Zingano’s husband killed himself. The world of MMA was saddened, and many people thought that Zingano would quit fighting. Cat Zingano has picked herself up, and she promises to come back stronger than ever. Losing a loved one, especially a spouse, is one of the hardest things to go through.

Win, loss, or draw, Cat Zingano has already gone through the toughest battle of her life. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.

In his prime McClellan had a record of 31-wins with 29- knockouts. His future looked bright, and Gerald McClellan was on his way to becoming a superstar.

On February 25th, 1995, Gerald McClellan’s life would change forever Brit remembers. McClellan was defending his WBC super welterweight championship against Nigel Benn. McClellan vs. Benn was a highly anticipated fight. Both fighters possessed devastating punching power. The fight lived up to everyone’s expectations.

The first round started with McClellan knocking Nigel Benn out of the ring. Miraculously, Nigel Benn made it to his feet, and he continued fighting. Gerald McClellan continued his assault, and he knocked Nigel Benn down again in the eighth round. Somehow, Nigel Benn got up once more, and he continued fighting.

The tenth round of the fight proved to be the final round of Gerald McClellan’s career. Nigel Benn knocked McClellan out with devastating punches, but there appeared to be more to the story.

Golovkin Knocks Out Murray

Gennady Golovkin took on Martin Murray over the weekend. The fight proved to be exciting, and Martin Murray put on a tremendous display of heart. Murray lasted until the tenth round against the dangerous Russian. Golovkin has knocked out 19-opponents in a row, including Martin Murray.

The last person to have 19-consecutive knockouts in a row was Mike Tyson. Golovkin vs. Murray was an important victory for the talented Russian. Martin Murray fought toe to toe with Golovkin, and at moments he stunned Golovkin. However, Gennady Golovkin did not stop coming forward. Murray was overwhelmed in the fight, and he went down several times before it was finally over.

After the fight, Gennady Golovkin had the advantage and called out Miguel Cotto. Golovkin vs. Cotto would be an excellent fight, but I doubt that it will take place. Cotto is an aging fighter, and he is a bit overmatched against the younger and stronger Russian. Gennady Golovkin has not been able to get a marketable opponent. The fighters in the middleweight division are scared of the hard hitting Russian.

Gennady Golvkin will be the future of boxing. Mayweather and Pacquiao will fight on May 2, but they will both soon retire. Golovkin will be around for a long time to come, and he is blazing a path of destruction along the way. For more information on Gennady Golovkin, visit Yahoo! Sports.
