Known for being a true warrior in the ring, at 33 Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, 33-4-1, 18 KO’s looks to make another push for a welterweight title. That journey begins this Saturday night at The Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Guerrero is set to take on David Emanuel Peralta, 25-2-1, 14 KO’s. Peralta who has fought all his fights in Argentina will be making his US debut against Guerrero this Saturday. Born and raised in Gilroy, California, Guerrero has always given fight fans exciting fights, having gone toe to toe with world champions Danny Garcia and Keith Thurman, along with a hard fought victory over Aron Martinez. Prior to 2015, the 33-year-old picked up victories over Andre Berto, Secluk Aydin and Michael Katsidis while winning world titles in multiple divisions. The brawling warrior has been in several “Fight of the Year” candidates throughout his career, including an all-out war at the Stubhub Center in Southern California with Yoshihiro Kamegai in 2014 and will hope to bring that same electricity this Saturday against the unknown Argentinian, Peralta.
Last night on PBC on FS1; unbeaten super middleweight prospect Caleb “Sweet Hands” Plant looked very comfortable in the ring as he cruised to a shutout unanimous decision victory over hard hitting Juan De Angel. Plant easily outclassed De Angel, making it look easy from the opening bell.
Plant came out early working his jab to the body and head of the Columbian, as De angel surprisingly circled away from the undefeated American. Plant suffered a cut on his forehead in the 9th round due to an accidental head-butt, but that was the most damage he took in the fight. Plant dropped De Angel in the fourth round and continued to walk him down; mixing up jabs, straight right hands, and left hooks to the body and head. Plant easily won a unanimous decision as all three judges scored the fight 100-89 in his favor. Caleb Plant improved his record to 14-0, 10 KO’s and Juan De Angel fell to 18-5-1, 17 KO’s.

After a brutal 5-round war against Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor emerged victorious but injured. Following a new tactic in the fight, McGregor landed a healthy dose of leg kicks on Diaz’s thighs but it may also have backfired on McGregor’s shins.”I kicked his knee clean, I think it was in the first round and then I just kept kicking so I’m feeling it now, but other than that I am perfect.” McGregor said. McGregor is medically suspended until October 20th, with no contact until October 5th. His foot and ankle must be examined and must be cleared by a orthopedic doctor.

I remember Billy Connolly once saying that one of the reasons he believed that it was all right for him to get into comedy was hearing, for the first time, Scottish voices on the radio. Having the opportunity to hear people who came from similar backgrounds and share the same nation as yourself is a particularly important part of feeling part of any culture. Up until he heard them on the radio there had only been English posh voices that were used in high brow films.
Once the Scots voice was heard, all hell did break loose.

USA Olympian Claressa Shields recently won her second Olympic Gold Medal in boxing. Strategically dominating Nouchika Fontijn of the Netherlands, Shields fought an A+ fight in this 4 round bout at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. In case you missed it here’s the fight “in a nutshell”:
Both Claressa Shields- (USA Red Corner) and Nouchika Fontijn –Netherlands (Blue Corner) made their way to the ring looking poised and confident.
Fontijn set a pace moving around the ring, lobbing feeler punches toward Shields’ head. Though determined and persistent, few of her punches connect as Shields slipped and countered in flurries from the very beginning. Shield shifted not only the pace of the fight, she immediately commanded control.

When the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve, 1977, everything was going George Foreman’s way. He was one of two men considered the top contender in the World for the Heavyweight Championship and the other, he’d knocked senseless in Caracas, Venezuela three years prior. So, whether Ali decided to return to the ring or not, he was assuredly in line for a shot at the title and a chance to regain his throne. Outside the ring, he’d recently signed on with ABC to be their fight analyst, alongside the color commentating of none other than Howard Cosell; and he was on the verge of just his 28th birthday. He was in his prime and with Ali showing the wear and tear of 17 years in the ring, there looked to be no one on the horizon who could defeat him.

Vinny’s Views: Memo to Roy Jones, JR Take Notes From Marcos Maidana, HBO Sends Manny Pacquiao Packing & Errol Spence, JR Returns to Action Today
Alright sports fans, taking a hard insiders look inside the pocket and outside the ropes. First off, this week we say goodbye to Marcos “Chino” Maidana, who announced his retirement after a two year hiatus. Chino seemed content with two monster paydays back in 2014 against Floyd Mayweather, JR. and the showing he put up. After considerable weight gain, Marcos decided to exit the ring wars on his terms, to which we can only say, bravo! Hell kid, I personally think you took 9 rounds from Floyd your first go at it and Kenny Bayless was relentless at hand cuffing you in the rematch, never allowing your two feet into Mayweather, JR.’s real estate. The through whipping you administered to Adrien Broner was a classic beat down solving the previously unbeaten “problem.” Ringside Report wishes you a glorious retirement and hopes you never need to make a comeback for cash or boredom.
Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson showed the world why he’s the number 1 contender for the light heavyweight title when he fought fellow perennial contender Glover Texeira. Both fighters brought power to the table, both had the desire to get the next shot at the belt.
Texeira, ask for the fight with glover but as the old adage say “be careful what you wish for”.

Friday night inside of the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles, Golden Boy prospect, Vyacheslav “Slava” Shabranskyy, 16-0, 13 KO’s took on Oscar Riojas, 10-5, 3 KO’s, from Laredo, Texas in an 8 round Light Heavyweight bout. Slava came out the first few rounds and out boxed the slower Riojas, utilizing his jab and longer reach to control the pace. In the 3rd, Shabranskyy caught Riojas with a straight left, flooring him. Oscar made it to his feet and was then hit with another solid right forcing the referee to step in and stop the bout at the 1:43 mark of the 3rd. “In the first round, I wanted to feel him out, find out what he had as a fighter. By the second round I started to expose his weaknesses and knew that I could finish the fight early, and that was what my corner was telling me to do, said Shabranskyy. I try to make sure I listen to my corner as they can see things that I can’t. Luckily we were able to finish the fight early and I am looking forward to the next fight.” Shabranskyy moves to 17-0, 14 KO’s.
