By Geno McGahee There was a time when the boxing fans would wait eagerly by the TV screen to see what war of words was exchanged. ESPN was typically the place to go to see the boxers getting interviewed and saying their piece directly to their opponent. The challenge was put down and now, as [...]
Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa has given Floyd Mayweather until June 1 to serve his jail sentence, thus allowing Floyd to fight on May 5 as scheduled against an opponent to be named.

By Geno McGahee The press is still covering the story of Floyd Mayweather, JR., and Manny Pacquiao, with the hopes that this bout will finally happen. At this point, the question must be asked: “What will this fight do positively for boxing?” The quick answer, sadly, is very little. Floyd Mayweather, JR., 42-0, 26 KO’s, [...]

Mayweather, JR., has been weighing his options since his controversial knockout over Victor Ortiz, and the name “Miguel Cotto” kept coming up, but [...]

Floyd Mayweather JR: Manny Pacquiao, Miguel Cotto, Victor Ortiz or Sergio Martinez … Who Can Beat Him? – Boxing News
By Geno McGahee In the HBO series “24/7,” the undefeated Floyd Mayweather, JR., 42-0, 26 KO’s, will demand respect and will brag about his dominance of the sport of boxing. His character of “Money Mayweather” has been a successful one, as he has become the man that many want to see lose. Muhammad Ali knew [...]
By Geno McGahee Floyd Mayweather, JR., 42-0, 26 KO’s, has a fight scheduled for May 5th in Nevada, and the question has been: “Who will it be?” The obvious hope is that the Filipino superstar, Manny Pacquiao will be the opponent, but it will most likely not happen. The most likely opponent at this time, [...]
By Geno McGahee Juan Manuel Marquez, 53-6-1, 38 KO’s, defeated Manny Pacquiao, 54-3-2, 38 KO’s, but was robbed in the end via majority decision. Marquez controlled Manny from the outside, confused him, and cruised to the finish line, ahead on the RSR card 116-112, BUT never underestimate the corruption in boxing and the need to [...]
By Geno McGahee Floyd Mayweather, JR., 42-0, 26 KO’s, identifies himself as the face of boxing, but there are few that have been around the game of boxing for a while that consider him one of the greatest of all times. Had he been in his prime in the 1990s, facing the likes of Felix [...]
By Geno McGahee Floyd Mayweather, JR., is now looking at Amir Khan as his next opponent. The two have met and agreed in principle to the details and the fight will be taking place should Khan get by Lamont Peterson in his next defense, a fight that he should win with relative ease.
By Vinnie Franklin I’m what you would call a “casual boxing fan.” I used to follow boxing big time before I found MMA and one of my friends invited me over to watch the Floyd Mayweather JR – Victor Ortiz pay per view and I couldn’t believe this guy. This guy claims to be the [...]
By Geno McGahee This Saturday, Sergio Martinez, 47-2-2, 26 KO’s, faces off against the unknown British import, Darren Barker, 23-0, 14 KO’s, in a very low profile showdown on HBO. Martinez is universally recognized as the #3 pound for pound best fighter in the world, behind the two biggest names in boxing, Floyd Mayweather, JR., [...]
By Geno McGahee Dana White got caught up in the Floyd Mayweather, JR. – Larry Merchant altercation like many did and he came out with a comment that has shocked a lot of people. He has called Merchant “senile” and noted that “he should be fired.” The feisty Merchant was verbally attacked by Mayweather, JR., [...]
By Geno McGahee The Floyd Mayweather, JR., criticism continues with Oscar De La Hoya speaking up and demanding a rematch with Victor Ortiz. De La Hoya stated that Ricardo Mayorga would not do what Floyd did and neither would Fernando Vargas. The war of words between Floyd and Oscar began before the Ortiz fight. De [...]
By Geno McGahee Floyd Mayweather, JR., 41-0, 25 KO’s, is ready to return to the ring on Saturday, and the anticipation is growing for his collision with WBC Welterweight Champion, Victor Ortiz, 29-2-2, 22 KO’s. The HBO 24/7 reality show, that is helping to promote the fight, is doing a very good job and offering [...]
By Geno McGahee I have been very critical of the sport lately and with good reason. The recent Abner Mares – Joseph Agbeko fiasco didn’t help my growing disgust, but as a boxing fan, you usually get beaten up quite often.
Manny Pacquiao – Juan Manuel Marquez III on HBO: Floyd Mayweather JR taking on Pacman Coming Together?
By Geno McGahee HBO has won the right to show Manny Pacquiao, 53-3-2, 38 KO’s, versus Juan Manuel Marquez, 53-5-1, 39 KO’s, on November 12th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

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 [...]
