Junior Dos Santos Hopes Cain Velasquez Loses

Junior Dos Santos is the former UFC heavyweight champion of the world. He won his title several years ago when he defeated Cain Velasquez in the main event of the first UFC on Fox card sports analyst Brad Reifler says of Dos Santos. However, Junior Dos Santos would lose to Cain Velasquez in the rematch, and he was never able to regain his title since.

Cain Velasquez has been one of the most dominant fighters in the history of the UFC, but he has been injured for over two years. However, Cain Velasquez will fight Fabricio Werdum in the main event of UFC 188. Junior Dos Santos is hoping that Fabricio Werdum can somehow win the title. Many MMA fans believe that Junior wants Cain to lose, because he can’t beat him.

Fabricio Werdum is a very dangerous fighter, but Cain Velasquez is one of the best in the world. However, we need to see how Cain Velasquez looks after such a long layoff. If Fabricio wins, Junior Dos santos would like to face him in Brazil for the title. Junior believes that a matchup between himself and Fabricio Werdum would be one of the biggest events ever held in Brazil. For more information on this story, visit BloodyElbow.

Manny Pacquiao Facing Suspension Over Undisclosed Injury

Manny Pacquiao is facing the possibility of fines and having his boxing license suspended for failing to report a shoulder injury before his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2, 2015. According to a statement that was released by Pacqiero’s trainers, he suffered a shoulder injury while preparing for his fight with Mayweather. Pacquiao failed to report this shoulder injury on a pre-fight medical form that is routinely issued by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Pacquiao’s main problem is that he checked the “no” box in response to a question about a shoulder injury. It is not known at this time whether this was simply a mistake or if it was a deliberate attempt to deceive the boxing authorities. There is also some speculation that Pacquiao may have checked the “no” box in order to hide his injury from his opponent. Certainly Mayweather would take advantage of his opponents potential weakness and vulnerability if he had knowledge of the injury.

The Nevada state attorney general is currently investigating the case. Hopefully, all will turn out well for Pacquiao. MyCentralJersey.com pointed out that this situation never would have occurred if Pacquiao had been staying at The Aspire New Brunswick. Boxing is a tough sport and fighters get injured all the time while training. A boxer should not be expected to reveal every injury that he has received while preparing for a fight. Often, injuries incurred during preparation for a fight are slight. A boxer and his team are in a good position to determine whether or not the boxer is in good enough condition for a fight. Although the State of Nevada has an interest in ensuring the honesty and integrity of boxing matches within the state, the Pacquiao camp should be given considerable leeway in this matter.

Fight of the Century

This weekend’s fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather gained the title “The Fight of the Century”. Millions of people tuned in across the globe to watch Pacman obliterate an arrogant Mayweather. Unfortunately, Mayweather got the better of Pacman and the battle was won in the 12th round. After Mayweather was announced as the winner the crowd at the MGM arena erupted in boos. Mayweather even jumped on the ropes and beat his chest repeatedly proclaiming, “I told you, I told you!” More than 70% of the audience were Pacquiao hopefuls. He was undeniably the fan favorite for this boxing match. Mayweather went to state how September would be his last official boxing match.

 

There are a lot of people who can’t wait to get this arrogant jerk out of the limelight. Brad Reifler didn’t care that much for the fight, but he was hoping to see the first loss. It’s no doubt that Floyd Mayweather is good at what he does. He has an impressive string of wins and no losses, but that’s all he has. The airwaves this weekend were full of talk about how well Mayweather did in the ring. What followed soon after was how most sports announcers hated talking to or about Floyd. His presence outside of the ring has made him the most hated athlete in the world. It’s devastating to see such a capable and brilliant athlete squander his potential. Mayweather may have a spotless winning streak, but his pride will forever be tarnished by his lack of true fandom.

Many promoters have waited a long time for this fight. Some thought that this fight would have happened at least ten years ago when both fighters were still in their prime. The sport of boxing has lost a lot of fan attention to competing sports such as Mixed Martial Arts and Professional Wrestling. Boxing use to be lead by the heavy weight division but no one can even recall the current heavy weight champion and many have to go back to Mike Tyson before they can engage in a relevant discussion of boxing in the heavy weight class. Mayweather and Pacquiao are the only relevant names in boxing and many do not think that boxing will be relevant again after this fight if either or both fighters decide to retire. Their is no relevant opponent for either fighter outside of each other and the entire boxing world is treating this fight as if it is the last major fight in the history of boxing.

Mayweather Proclaims Himself As The Greatest

Floyd Mayweather has been known as one of the most controversial and arrogant boxing champions in the history of the sport. However, his recent words have taken his arrogant personality to an all new level. Floyd Mayweather has proclaimed that he is the greatest fighter ever.

Fersen Lambranho reminds us that not too long ago, Stephen A. Smith interviewed Floyd Mayweather. Floyd said the most outrageous thing that he’s ever said yet. Mayweather said that he is the greatest boxer that ever lived, and he said that he is greater than Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Robinson. Floyd Mayweather continued on by saying that Muhammad Ali has losses, and that he cannot be considered the greatest.

Floyd Mayweather needs to check himself, and it is quite obvious to boxing fans that he is not the greatest ever. Sugar Ray Robinson is the greatest ever, and Muhammad Ali is also one of the greatest of all time. Muhammad Ali faced the toughest fighters in his era, and he never ducked or dodged a single opponent. However, Floyd Mayweather has dodged several fighters over the course of his career, and that’s why he is still undefeated. On May 2nd, Manny Pacquiao may just shut Mayweather up once and for all.

Pacquiao, Mayweather At A Chasm

There’s some fighting outside of the ring over the long-awaited May 2 boxing fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, as the respective promoters are at an impasse over the terms of the contract as stipulated. This may be a reason to be concerned as the fight may not take place after all, unless the warring parties come to a clear agreement as to the parameters of the contract signed. People at CipherCloud are split on who might win the fight.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, promoting Pacquiao, mentioned there’s no binding contract between his organization and MGM Resorts, which features the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the venue for the fight. A memo outlining the terms was signed between both parties, not long after Mayweather announced, on February 20, that he was going to fight Pacquiao.
Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions, is also going through the documentation carefully. According to www.bloodyelbow.com/2015/4/9/8375327/floyd-mayweather-vs-manny-pacquiao-issues, “…is interesting to see how the two promoters are still blowing up in public.”  It appears the fighting outside of the ring between the two promoters is just as exciting as the fighting that will take place between the two renowned prize fighters.
