I’ve become that guy. The guy who sees that money talks and BS walks everywhere you look. And the BS in boxing is so thick nowadays you could stand a baseball bat up in it. Either that or it’s running down the walls stinking the joint out.
We’ve got the WBC – aka We Be Crooked – saying they were gonna strip Canelo Alvarez unless he agreed by a deadline to meet “GGG” in May. Everybody was counting down the days till the deadline came and went. NOTHING HAPPENED! The WBC moved the goalposts to give their native son a way out of having to sign for the fight. That’s when I threw the sofa out the window. I live in a bad neighborhood so by the time I went downstairs to retrieve it was gone. SMDH. So now I’m really f****** pissed!

British Welterweight rivals Kell Brook and Amir Khan are reportedly close to agreeing to a showdown to take place at Wembley Stadium in London on June 4th. IBF champion Brook is undefeated at 35-0, 24 KO’s and has successfully defended twice since winning a majority decision over Shawn Porter in August 2014. The 29 year old Brook is ranked as the #7 fighter in the world pound for pound by Ring Magazine. Khan, also 29 years old, was the Silver Medalist at the 2004 Athens Olympics and holds victories over Marco Antonio Barrera, Andreas Kotelnik, Paulie Malignaggi, Marcos Maidana, and Zab Judah. Khan’s career was derailed by losses to Lamont Peterson, in December 2011, and Danny Garcia, in July 2012.

Yep. That Miami good life ruins a lot of those Cuban cats man. It’s understandable though. Brought up dirt poor and training like demons from a real young age with the dream of making the national team so they can get an extra free meal. SMH. Medal at the world championships or the Olympics, go back home and you’re still no better off than the ragged family next door. F*** THAT!!! DEFECT!!! You end up in Miami – via river canoe through Europe – and comparatively the streets are paved with MF GOLD! Nightlife. Women. Fast cars. For the first time in your life you’ve got money in your pocket. And lots of it. Man, suddenly you don’t want to train so hard anymore.

Once again Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions brings fight fans the LA Fight Club Series. On Friday January 29th undefeated prospect Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez, 15-0, 8 KO’s will headline a 10 round featherweight bout on Boxeo Estelaron on Estrella TV. Ramirez takes on Christopher “S.D. Kid” Martin, 28-6-3, 9 KO’s of Chula Vista, California in a 10-round fight for the vacant WBC Silver Youth Featherweight Title. Julian is the nephew of the late world-champion boxer Genaro “Chicanito” Hernandez and is a local So. Cal favorite. Ramirez last fought in October at the Stubhub Center on the Lucas Matthysse, Viktor Postol undercard. Julian came away with a convincing unanimous decision over Hugo Partida. “El Cameron” is a powerful, come forward fighter who can use this fight against Martin as a major stepping stone in his young career.His opponent, Christopher Martin, has been in the ring with former world title challengers Chris Avalos, Miguel Marriaga, and current WBC featherweight champion Gary Russell Jr., so this fight will be a big measuring stick for Ramirez and his team.

Heading into what may very well be the final game, and even more likely the final Super Bowl in which we ever see the legendary 5-time NFL MVP, multiple milestone-manager and perhaps first “Quarterback/ offensive coordinator”, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning heads into Super Bowl 50 carrying with him perhaps more of a legacy in an improbable Super Bowl birth than any field general the game of football has ever seen. In a season which showed the 39-year-old Manning experience far more struggles, turnovers, borderline blasphemous media criticism and even his first official benching of his career, the former pinnacle piece on the chessboard of Fantasy Football finds himself in what he reportedly was caught on audio telling New England Patriots head coach and long-time Manning rival Bill Belichick may be his “last rodeo”.
