Manny Pacquiao – Juan Manuel Marquez III on HBO: Floyd Mayweather JR taking on Pacman Coming Together?
By Geno McGahee With very little star power in the sport of boxing, and no network coverage, and without any single fighter really stirring up the American crowd, everyone has looked at Manny Pacquiao, 53-3-2, 38 KO’s, as the man. He is the man that people want to see fight because he gives the boxing [...]
By Gina L. Caliboso So, RSR fans, while our website has been growing successfully at a rate greater than a Tribble, I continue to have these random thoughts that hopefully turn into an article somewhere.
By Geno McGahee In an IBF eliminator, Lamont Peterson, 29-1-1, 15 KO’s, knocked out Victor Cayo in the final round, clearing the way for a shot at the champion, Amir Khan. Khan is currently weighing his options, but may be back in action on HBO in December and it could very well be against the [...]
By Geno McGahee Floyd Mayweather, JR., 41-0, 25 KO’s, has been untouchable as a pro, and returns to the ring after a brief hiatus to take on WBC Welterweight Champion, Victor Ortiz. The raw and powerful champion doesn’t seem to have the skill set to unlock the mystery of “Money” Mayweather, and, as usual, this [...]
By Gina L. Caliboso Yes, RSR fans, it is July. And, however uneventful, with a few recent pleasant surprises, my beloved sport of boxing has been rather blah lately along with a mix of my So-Cal speak of “Shut up, are you serious?” The last comment in reference to the Haye vs Klitschko and Williams [...]
By Samaarah Choubak Deep in space beyond the spiral Milky Way and on the inner edge of the Orion and beyond the furthest galaxy there are two bright illuminated stars Mayweather and Ortiz they are on route and set to collide on September 17th, 2011 in Vegas. Tickets for this star struck historical event have [...]
By Siri Karri Chances are that if you know anything about anything of current day boxing, you’ve heard of the Klitschko brothers. Granted they aren’t mentioned in the same breath as Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather, but you’ve at least heard of them. They’re kind of like Kevin Bacon; you don’t have to see any [...]
By Sean Farrell Floyd Mayweather JR. made an appearance on ESPN to speak on his upcoming return against Victor Ortiz…Only one problem, no one cared so he cleared up the air surrounding facing Manny Pacquiao. Mayweather when addressed about calling Pacquiao a cheater had the following to say “I’ve never said that Manny Pacquiao was [...]
By Geno McGahee Anthony Cliff, a boxing fan, has filed a lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather, JR., over an incident involving one of the bodyguards assaulting him. What allegedly prompted the assault was Cliff’s inquiry as to why Floyd hasn’t faced Manny Pacquiao yet. He was allegedly “beat up” by the bodyguard.
By Siri Karri Chocolate or Vanilla? Team Edward or Team Jacob? (If you don’t get the reference that means you are a good person at heart) Batman or Superman? (Bruce Wayne over Wuss Kent any day) Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao? Somehow, determining the Pound-for-Pound King of boxing has divided fans just as handily as [...]
By Donald C. Stewart Manny Pacquiao, 53-3-2 38 KO’s, is undoubtedly the best pound for pound fighter on the planet. What is also undoubted is that the potential of a fight against Floyd Mayweather, JR., is probably the most boring non event in sport. But if the Pac Man is not going to get it [...]
By Anthony Santiago Manny Pacquiao will be looking to settle that little score he has with that little man, Juan Manuel Marquez in November and you can mash up that turkey in the blender for my Georgie Girl because it’s going to be a barn burner.
By Gina L. Caliboso Recently, one of my favorite Lakers (former) – Shaquille O’Neal, announced his retirement from basketball. And I got to thinking about how much O’Neal means to me. As a Lakers fan, of course, I remember those championship years. And, just to remain consistent, RSR fans, I’m still not watching the NBA [...]
By Manoj Bhat Apart from Paris Hilton, the whole world was disappointed by the fight we saw on Saturday night. Perhaps that’s why she is so unique. The start to the fight was cautious and that was understandable considering the fact the advantage Mosley had in the fight to start with. Manny did not rush [...]
By Manoj Bhat As the boxing fans are getting ready for a very exciting week ahead and pray their idols come out on top on Saturday, most of us will surely be served the dish that has now become so common on the Floyd Mayweather show. Apart from getting ready to witness two great fighters [...]
By Gina L. Caliboso It’s an understatement to write that we are all going through some tough times. On a personal level, I have faced some economic challenges and I continue, day in day out, doing the best I can. Yes, tough times for everyone. And just when I think I have it bad, I [...]
The following has been reported on TMZ.com A man identified as a boxing promoter claims he was victimized by Nelson Mandela’s daughter over a botched effort to organize a Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight to celebrate her dad’s 93rd birthday. Duane Moody claims Zindziswa Mandela approached him several months ago to broker the fight — which [...]
By “Bad” Brad Berkwitt On May 7th at the MGM Grand, Manny Pacquiao faces former World Champion Shane Mosley in a 12 round bout for Pacquaio’s WBO welterweight championship. Build up to the fight is trying to make it sound like Mosley has a legit chance of beating of Pacquiao. All the build up in [...]
By Manoj Bhat Why has Floyd Mayweather become one of the most despised athletes in modern sports? Why has this unbeaten talented pugilist taken a tumble from being the pride of the fans to a shame? On the surface, nothing much has changed for Floyd. He is still unbeaten, still physically fit and strong, still [...]
By Gina L. Caliboso For a while, it seemed that the exploits of Floyd “Money” Mayweather, JR., all ran together. Let me check the TMZ news summaries for Money Mayweather…hmm, rather empty these days. But nonetheless, as far as the challenge between the up for dispute, pound for pound, rivals Mayweather and Pacquiao goes, it’s [...]
By Geno McGahee 100 Million Dollars… sound familiar? It was the amount that Roy Jones, JR., wanted to step into the ring with Mike Tyson. In other words, he wanted absolutely no part of Iron Mike. Now we have a repeat with Floyd Mayweather, JR., reportedly asking for the same amount to face a fighter [...]
By Geno McGahee EPIX – The Intro to Boxing Last Saturday’s WBC Heavyweight Title fight was supposed to be the launch of EPIX into boxing coverage and what better way to start then with a heavyweight title fight? Vitali Klitschko, 42-2, 39 KO’s, the defending champion was up against the former Gold Medalist and top [...]
By Eugene Green A Prodigy, a Miracle, a Wonder. On top of that, a cyclist and a model. The Argentine Sergio Martinez came into the sport as a late bloomer, pushing all the way through the top with his raw talent. It was only a matter of time until the fireworks junkies were irreversibly subdued [...]
By Joseph Garcia On May 7th, live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Manny “Pac-Man” Pacquiao returns to the ring against future Hall of Famer “Sugar” Shane Mosley. Many critics have written off Shane as over-the-hill and are calling this a huge mismatch (evident by the odds makers having Shane listed currently as a [...]
