Greetings from Bristol, Conn., Fight Freaks! I'm going to chat with you this afternoon and then I hope you tune into Friday Night Fights tonight. I'll be in the studio with Brian Kenny. It's a big weekend of fights with the Froch-Taylor show on Showtime tomorrow, JM Lopez-Penalosa show on HBO tomorrow and tonight's ESPN2 show and ShoBox with Spinks-Latimore. And next week is the big one -- Hatton-Pacquiao. So we have much to discuss.
Dan, im headin to the Taylor fight this saturday...It's gonna be epic trying to balance the draft with the fight. All in a casino...man o man.
Good luck. I will be heading to Foxwoods tomorrow morning as well. Should be a fun fight.
Dan, I have just recently taken up an interest in boxing and I enjoy reading your chats every Friday. I'm headed to my first professional event this weekend (Taylor/Froch), and was wondering if you had any advice or thoughts I should keep in mind to get the best first experience?
Great that you are going in person. I always tell people as much as it's great to watch a fight on TV, going in person is so much fun. If you're really into it, go early and watch the undercard fights.
Dan do you think if trinidad hopkins gets made hbo will buy it?
First off, IF made, it would be a PPV. That said, I doubt it will be made. If it is made, I would somewhat shocked if HBO supported it as a PPV.
Let me get a mountain dew!
Don't forget the hard shell tacos with tomato.
Rank my freak status...that Melissa from Hburg is my girlfriend. I made her a freak and got her on here on friday...muahhaa. AND shes comin to the fight w/ me.
Adamek-Johnson is a great fight! Why are the nets balking?
Showtime is booked in July. HBO is going throught its process of deciding what it wants to do.
D-Money$$... I really like Celestino Caballero. I don't see him beating Gamboa, but his awkward style could cause some problems for Gamboa. How close is showtime or hbo to picking up that fight up?
It's a very good fight, very interesting. From what the fighter camps tell me, both networks have expressed interest.
Felix, Tito...I hope you're reading. If you REALLY insist on fighting again, I've got two words for you. Omar Sheika.
Hi Dan can you give us some insight on tonight's FNF card? And do you really answer viewer submitted questions on the air or does it depend on the fights?
Our main event is Escalante-Stark. It's not the most meaningful fight in the world, but it should have some fireworks as both guys make gooood fights. Also on TV will be Daniel Jacobs, one of the best prospects in boxing and Deontay Wilder, the only US boxing medalist in Beijing in his first pro TV fight. As for the viewer questions -- it depends on time and it's up to the producers, not me.
Is James Kirkland still fighting next week?
It is unlikely but nothing is definite. There is supposed to be a hearing today in which the judge will determine if he is allowed to travel outside of Texas.
Whats with Morales trying a comeback, I mean he is one of my favorite fighters, but is really serious about coming back.
Dan the Man, With Kirkland going to jail and his fight in jeopardy what are the plans for the televised PPV? Would Alvarado get bumped up?
It's a fluid situation and nothing has been decided. Obviously, moving Mike onto TV could be possible. But remember -- this is a Golden Boy fight slot, not Top Rank. So I think if Kirkland is off, GB will make the call.
Just read the notebook..."champion in recess?" Is that like when your in elementary school and get to go outside and play for an hour? Sounds like the other kids got to play and he had to stay inside and do homework?
What is Kirkland thinking. I hope he smartens up fast.
dan, victor ortiz vs marcos maidana what a great fight i think.
I agree. It's a really interesting fight and a serious test for Ortiz.
Dan, I finally saw the Real Sports feature on Ann Wolfe. After seeing how upset she was after the run-in with the cops, she must be furious with what is going on with Kirkland.
I'm sure. That Real Sports piece is MUST SEE TV. So catch a replay or watch it on demand.
I found out yesterday I won the HBO contest to go to the fight. So it doesn't matter to me but will Alverado be on the TV card if Kirkland can't fight? And I was surprised not to see a statement by GBP this week on this.
That is cool. Congrats! Alvarado is on the card regardless if he is on TV or not.
Since no one's asked, your predictions for tomorrow night's fights. I got Taylor by decision, Lopez by crushing KO mid-rounds, and Peterson in a boring, tedious decision W.
I also like Taylor on a decision. I think Lopez also gets rid of Penalosa. Peterson also W12. We agree!
Since Kirkland was supposed to fight a tomato can anyway, why not let Ann Wolfe fight the dude!
That's an interesting idea.
D$, if the "Swamp Donkey" wins impressively, how far away is he from fighting on a televised undercard?
Win or lose, I'd like to see him on a TV fight.
I think there is a good chance Allan Green could get upset by De Leon. Agree?
DeLeon is a good puncher, so he has that chance. But Green is a much better fighter overall.
Any word on a possible PBF fight for July? Is JMM still a possibility?
It's very possible. They're working on a deal.
D-Money$$... What's up with Kirkland? I guess you can take the person out the hood, but you cant take the hood out the person.
Dan, any word when the palvik vs mors tickets will go on sale??
Soon I am sure since there is going to be a press conference in Vegas next Saturday to formally announce the bout.
Danno - Floyd Sr is freaking ripped - i was in awe....that whole family has ridiculous genes
I was thinking the same thing when I watched the second episode of 24/7.
You have to love this name Adam "The Swamp Donkey" Richards.
In the immortal words of our broadcast hero: Definitely.
Did Freddie Roach just say that Floyd Sr. couldn't even program a VCR, LOL. Freddie is great at hyping up fights.
Dan, It's a miracle! Devon Alexander is goint to be on TV! After he dismantles "Chuy", do u think he gets Bradley next, or will Bradley vacate?
Bradley has not made his decision official yet. If he wants to keep that belt, he has to fight Alexander next if Alexander wins tonight.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh...the Swamp Donkey!
Better run entity: WBA or Tavoris Cloud?
Hilarious. I think maybe the WBA, because at least the WBA makes money.
Dan, Would you give Alexander a good shot against Bradley?
Yes, because he is fast as hell.
Huge SF Giants fan here. It was great to see the Pac-Man make a stop at the game. They sold an extra 11,000 tickets once it was announced he would be there.
Dan, wouldnt a future bout between jermain Taylor and Paul Williams be great?
I think Taylor would be looking at other options. Plus, that's a tough fight to make anyway since they are both managed by Al Haymon and I can't see him putting them together.
I bought last week's PPV from Manila and enjoyed the show. Do these "niche" events have a future in that they feature bouts that attract hardcore fans?
Dan, you make me sick and your predictions are worse than the weather man. I think you are racist against hispanics too and that's why you don't think Tito should fight again.
I think you should go play in traffic.
Dan, have you seen the Tyson movie? If not do you plan to?
I have not seen it yet, but I do plan to.
I don't even want "Ron Balzack"...send it back!
any word on who is going to replace cottos uncle as a trainer?
Joe Santiago, a Cotto assistant trainer.
Dan, Do you HAVE to order the Camacho-Campas PPV because its your job, or can you skip that one?
I think that fight sucks so freaking bad -- I mean SOOOOOOOOO FREAKIN' BAD -- that I can say honestly it may be the very first boxing PPV I do not buy since the mid-1990s. I have bought a lot of crappy PPVs but I am not buying it. I swear. It is utter garbage.
Any new news to pass along about any fight cards on Versus?
Did you read today's notebook?
LOL Dan, tell us how you really feel about Camacho-Campas.
OK -- IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wouldn't JuanMa-Pensalosa have made a perfect May 2 co-feature? Schaefer/Arum promised they would make up for the Pac-Oscar debacle, on paper it doesn't look like they have.
The undercard ain't the best, I agree. But Kirkland's problems are just one of those things that can't be planned for. JM Lopez doesn't go on that undercard because Arum has his own date for him on HBO for good money and big gate. Makes no economic sense to be on that show.
Camacho/Campos?? Where is that being held?
It should take place in a garbage dump. Instead, it will be in Atlantic City.
big dan - im about to go see the Tyson move this afternoon - i woke up this morning, put on my black shorts, black sneakers, no socks, cut a towel in my bathroom and threw it on, stuck my fake gold cap in my tooth, and been pumpin "Time for some action" all day on my cd player. My wife thinks im taking it a bit too far especially when i snuck up on her and bit her ear earlier - Iron Mike baby!
Dude needs help.
Any truth about Robert Guerrero vs Humberto Soto might happen if they get pass their next opponents?
It's a fight both sides have mentioned as being interested in, so I think it's possible.
Banishment REFUSED??!! I have truly seen it all.
I've got the Campas-Camacho winner...bring it on! Oxygen machines be allowed in the corner, right?
Dan, how close is RJJ-Lacy to reality? And how many people care?
They are talking about it and it's possible. It would attract a crowd in Tampa I believe. Considering the options for both guys, I think it's actually sort of interesting.
I wanna eat Joey's heart, I want to eat his children!
Dano, do you think we'll finally see Pavlik/Abraham this fall?
I know I have said no way before, but now I do think we will see it in November as long as they both win on June 27.
"..there's only one ricky hatton!!!!!!!"
Save it for next week dude.
Danno, how much do we know about JMLopez's chin? Has he ever been hurt?
He's been buzzed but handled it well.
which of tomorow fights have a better undercaerd peterson vs blain or de leon vs green
I'd call it a draw. Peterson-Blain probably will be more competitive but less action. Green-DeLeon could be more action but less competitive.
Forget Jared's diet from subway. Im going on Floyd Sr diet from taco bells... ganranteed to get ripped in 30 days
That Camacho vs. Campas PPV is as bad, if not worse then Butterbean vs. Larry Holmes
Actually, it is.
Dan, wondering what happened to Pongskalek Wongthangtem? I love his action fights. (Hi to all US Veterans!)
He fights today in Thailand.
I feel like a man on death row. Only a few more months til my execution.
I may get banned for this..but did you see the replay of the Gilbert- Brinkly fight...that was the most blood I ever saw in a fight
I saw it. It plays on one of my cable sports networks like three times a week it seems.
I'll fight Terry Norris, Camacho and Yory Boy in one night
People continue to say boxing is dead, yet Klitsckho-Haye sells 30,000 tix on day one and close to 40,000 for the week! Long live boxing!!!
And Hatton-Pacquiao is a sellout. And Mosley-Margarito drew 20,000. And Marquez-Diaz drew like 14,000. And Pavlik-Rubio sold out. Yeah, it's dead.
Who ever does the soundtrack for the last two 24/7s needs a nobel prize
The music on 24/7 is terrific.
How's Max doing without the radio show? When will we see him next on HBO? Mike and Max on the Fan?
Not sure about the radio stuff, but Max is scheduled to be ringside in Puerto Rico for the HBO show tomorrow.
What was your reaction when you found out about Camacho vs. Campas? Uproarious laughter I'm assuming
No. I sort of gagged.
No. I sort of gagged.
Hey Big-D. I saw my hometown boy Raul Martinez fall hard this weekend. Was he really that much overmatched? Is there any hope that maybe it was just a bad night
Really don't know. I gave him a great shot for the upset. Maybe he was overcome by the moment.
it's crap like camacho-campas, trinidad's delusional dream of fighting old man hopkins, and morales dragging his bloated frame into the ring that almost make me embarrassed to be a boxing fan. fighters like this bring the sport the dignity of WWE.
Hey, lay off WWE. I'm psyched for Backlash on Sunday.
Thanks for all the chats, Dan. Quick question, Was last weeks HBO documentary the first time you heard Ali wanting to quit after round 14, or is that a known thing?
A very commonly known thing.
I had cookies, cake and candy bars for breakfast... My new 'I got the munchies' diet gets better results than Joke Coach Roach's diet pills!
To build on Randy's statement, How can I buy the 24/7 theme. I've tried to get it everywhere. Is HBO preventing the sale of it?
I have no idea. I don't think it's for sale.
Any word on the Ward v. Miranda undercard?
The TV co-feature probably will involve John Molina. I would expect Olympians Javier Molina and Shawn Estrada to also be on the card.
What's up with middleweight prospect Joe Greene? He's been inactive and quiet since last August....
I asked his promoter, Leon Margules, the same question the other day. He told me he may fight on the May 30 undercard of Berto-Urango.
Dan, with the man facing certain inducement of lots of pain, I still give props to David Haye for some excellant trash talking.......hilarious quote today!
Haye is a great smack talker. But that won't help him when Wladimir puts him to sleep.
JUANMA! Open haircut!
Dan, who do you think wins the Spinks-Latimore fight tonight? I thought Latimore looked great in the Powell fight but I have a terrible feeling that Spinks will outbox him.
Hard fight to pick. I have not see a lot of Latimore and he has not fought in forever. But he's young and hungry. Spinks is such a good boxer and he seems more focused on this than the Verno fight. He's also back with trainer Kevin Cunningham. I can certainly see Spinks outboxing him.
Did you add in any words when you interviewed Don King? "We ate pork ribs and lamb chops. Mmmmmmmmm it was good." The man is the definition of of smooth talk.
I quoted DK exactly as he spoke. It was a hilarious quote.
dan i have to congratulate espn2 I believe friday night fight is getting better each day I believe that quintana fight with perez could easy be on BAD.
It is an excellent FNF main event. We've had some good fights this season and more are scheduled.
King didn't do an interview from his bubble bath? How disappointing.
That was a once in a lifetime experience.
Do you have any insight on what Kirkland's looking at? Is it pretty much certain he's going to jail for a while or do you have any inside info of how he might get around this one? Looks pretty serious...
I believe if he is found guilty, he is looking at 2-10 years in prison.
Is it hard not to laugh when you talk to Don King?
If Floyd signs with the Don, and I gotta watch his stupid flag waving for an entire 24/7 series, Im gonna kill myself. The only way it makes it tolerable is if Pacquiao is on the other end...not Marquez.
Was there a specific reason that Birmingham and Korobov parted ways?
From what I understand, it was that Korobov and his schedule had some conflicts.
James Kirkland...meet Ike Ibeabuchi.
At least Kirkland is not accused of attacking a woman. Let's not put him in the same category.
If Floyd signs with Don, do you think we can get a 24/7 episode where Roger and Don go Thanksgiving shopping at the supermarket?
Any chance we see Abner Mares on tv if Kirkland can't fight?
Very unlikely. Abner is coming off a serious injury and GB has no plans to move him to TV as of the other day.
what do you see as the keys for tomorrow's fight? what should we look for from both fighters to see if they are on their game?
I assume you mean Froch-Taylor. Taylor needs to keep that jab in Froch's face and use at least a little lateral movement. I think he's faster than Froch. Froch needs to pressure Jermain as much as he can.
Hi Dan - I'll be in Vegas next week on business. I'll be flying out Friday evening but I want to try to see the weigh-in for Pacquiao/Hatton. I know its at the MGM Grand. What time does it start and what time should I be there to get a good seat. Hope to see you there. Thanks.
The weigh in is supposed to start for the main event about 3:10 pm PT (and it's supposed to be live on ESPN). I would get there way early for a good seat since the Brits will be there in force.
Is Ferdie Pacheco getting punchy?
Sup Dan, still no venue for the Ortiz fight in LA?
It will be at Staples Center.
Consider Freddie Roach's back gotten! I got his back!
I love the WWE and Boxing, but how can Lenny negatively compare boxing's dragging out of old guys to the WWE. Ricky the Dragon Steamboat is fighting at a pay per view and it's now 1986
Good point. But at least The Dragon can still bring it.
Kirkland is a fool
D$ who's on the pavlik-mora undercard?
Probably Montiel-Mora, Malignaggi-Alvarado if they win interim fights, maybe Martirosyan vs. Tsurkan.
I was watching a tape of Whitaker-Chavez, and Pacheco (calling the fighr for Showtime) had the fight EVEN thru 10 rounds. That tells you that Pacheco was already punchy back in 1993.
Kirkland made a stupid decision, but after watching the Real Sports segment, do you think maybe Austin-area law enforcement has it in for him?
I think that is a possibility, yes.
Daddy, stop tickling me! It hurts!
Do you think that Wlad's horrible opposition as of late (Thompson, Brock, Austin, etc.) have made him appear better than he actually is? I think the Haye fight is 50%-50% and will go to whoever lands cleanly first.
I think to say Thompson and Brock were horrible competition is stupid. They were both very solid, legit top 10 contenders.
If I lean on my desk during the chat, is Michael Moorer going to fine me a dollar?
Dan, Floyd Sr still looks like he gots it! I think he could come out today and win one of the ridiculous alphabet titles!
is there a possibility of a shane mosley pacquiao fight? i think that would be a great fight!
I don't think Top Rank or Freddie will let Manny anywhere near Mosley. No way.
Is there a valid reason why the NFL Draft is starting so late and who makes that determination. Do teams that have first round picks get less time to make their selection than last year and is it enough time.
Is there a valid reason you would ask that question in a boxing chat?
I'll be in Vegas next weekend but don't have tickets. Will the MGM be showing the fight on their TVs?
At closed circuit locations for 50 smackers.
Do you think Vanes Martyrosyan has been moved too slow? He turned pro over four years ago, is a former Olympian, and yet Tsurkan would probably represent the best fighter on his resume
Not at all. I do not question the way Top Rank moves its fighters. They do it better than anyone.
With the first pick, in the 2009 Draft, banishment selects...
Dan, do you know who the narrator of 24/7 is? He does a great job.
Actor Liev Schreiber.
will top rank still promote Erik Morales?
I know there is only one Ricky Hatton. But is the same true about Matthew?
I'll have to look into it.
How many PPV buys do you see for Pacquiao Hatton?
Tough to predict given the economy but I would guess in the 750,000 range.
"With the 1st pick in the 2009 Paper Champions Draft, the WBA selects Hugo Hernan Garay."
With the second pick the WBA selects Bernard Dunne.
Just waited in line at Saladworks for an hour during the chat... definitely NOT freak status :(
Makes you an idiot. A hungry one.
Dan, BK seems like a pretty cool dude and knowledgeable boxing guy and more important a true boxing fan. Are these correct perceptions?
100 percent. Brian loves boxing and knows his stuff.
Dan your the MAN, Im a Big COTTO fan and am quite annoyed by his selection of his new trainer and the to get rid of Miguel Diaz and replace him with his brother doesn't seem like the brightest idea. Cotto always bleed or swells in fights and you can not mickey mouse with a want to be cut man.. I see disaster coming and especially that Clottey can fight. What's your take??
I'm a little surprised that he would get rid of Miguel but I think it came down to money. Cotto doesn't want to pay Miguel's price and it may come back to haunt him big time.
King Freak! My co-worker and I have been debating for the past hour whether or not Oscar will return to the ring. I say no and he is convinced that he has to much pride for it to end in such a crushing defeat. We both agree he should hang them up, but do you think, at somepoint, he comes back? One last hurrah to try to end with a "W"?
If he did come back for one more down the road, I would not be shocked. I hope he doesn't though.
Danaconda, if Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez gets made, what chance do you give JMM of winning? After seeing him figure out and destroy Juan Diaz and having Nacho in his corner, you have to think he'll have a solid game plan.
I would make Mayweather a major favorite.
Dan, not a question, just want to say I find myself eagerly awaiting your articles/blogs each week. They are awesome. Keep up. You're the best.
Thank you. I really appreciate it.
Mayweather Sr. has said he would train Ricky in a rematch with his son. If the price is right, do you think he would?
Isn't Ricky Hatton's dad also Ricky Hatton?
No, his dad is Ray Hatton.
Does Nazim Richardson train anyone besides B-Hop and Mosley?
Yes, he trains his son, Rock Allen, and his cousin karl Dargan.
Do you think Rigondeaux will be moved at a speed similar to Gamboa's? Simply no need to coddle that guy unless he can't take a good punch without head gear on!
I would expect him to be moved very quickly.
How realistic is it that P. Williams get a quality opponent at 147 in his next time out?
No chance Paul fights at 147 in his next fight. No way.
I'm calling out Pacquiao! Bobby Pacquiao that is for the MLTB or "Much Less Talented Brother" title belt!!
Dan, while I am a huge JMM fan, I don't give him much of a chance against the faster, stronger Mayweather. Please tell me if this fight is made Floyd will only see this as a stepping stone to more competitive fights against the likes of Sugar Shane or Cotto?
I would think so. If the fight happens and Floyd wins, obviously one of those bigger fights would loom.
Cant go wrong with a "Swamp Donkey"
Camacho-Campas Fight of the year........in 1918
1918 or 1818?
Floyd Mayweather will NEVER fight a true 147 again. He's too afraid of blemishing his perfect record.
Maybe so. He's never fought an elite 147.
Do you think Floyd/Cotto will ever happen, given that Bob Arum and Floyd don't exactly get along?
Money has a way of making people in boxing make nice.
hey Dan, do yo think Jorge Arce is a Hall of Famer
Maybe if he buys a ticket.
FNF is going to be on at roughly the same time as the ShoBox card. Your obligation to ESPN notwithstanding, will you watch FNF live and DVR ShoBox, or will you ignore ShoBox altogether? (Spinks = zzzzzzz...)
Well since I will be in the FNF studio, I will be watching FNF.
Dan, got my tickets for Taylor - Froch. Any propescts / intersting fights on the untelevised portion? I hvae Taylor by UD but have a feeling he could stop Froch in the later rounds.
Malignaggi comes back on the undercard. Dominic Guinn is on the undercard. Check the ESPN.com fight schedule for the full show.
Your notebook has me eagerly awaiting a possible Gamboa Caballero showdown. Who would you favor in that one?
I sort of think off the top of my head Caballero. Awkward style, good power, tall and decent puncher against a guy with no defense.
How pumped do you get when you are prepping for a TV gig?
If getting pumped is sitting in a hotel room in rural Connecticut doing a boxing chat on my laptop defines pumped, I am PUMPED!
Could Floyd's indulgence with Don King just be a way to get under Arum's skin and give Floyd a little bit more leverage if/when they try to negotiate a Pacman-FMM fight?
I think Floyd is listening to all offers and enjoying being chased.
How ridiculous is it that the WB0 is allowing 89 year old Maselino Masoe to get a title shot?
Come on dude, he's not a day over 70.
Campas should come to the ring in a wheelchair, while Camacho rides a Brontosaurus.
If Floyd does sign with Don King would that mean the Marquez fight would be dead?
We will be naming the IBF the sanctioning organization world champion. The WBA will be elevated to super champion.
I am really looking forward to the Camacho fight.
"I'm with Stupid ---->"
Dan, congrats to ESPN. Quintana, Urango, Peter, and Chambers all headlining a FNF this year. I was worried when they canceled WNF, but they've definitely done some solid work this year.
I have been released so I will see Dan the Man in Foxwoods on Saturday
Don't threaten me.
jorge arce is a HOF in the lollipop hall of fame.
We will be ordering the Camacho card. Please, be the cure for our disease!
Hey Dan, I know you watch with a different prespective than most of us, but do you ever think about what could have beens? Like if Pavlik had not made it back from his being knockdown by JT? In terms of what his career would now be? Things like that.
Of course, I think about those things. I always think about how different things may have been had Jones fought Holyfield after the Ruiz fight instead of going back to 175.
Tell the Insomniacs that Cory Spinks fights tonight. Save your money and watch ShoBox!
Dan, I remember being in this chat when the Pacquiao-Hatton tickets went on sale and all the freaks were complaining about them being sold out on ticketmaster. How come they just this week announced that it sold out?
I have no idea. Tickets have been available since they went on sale until a couple of days ago.
Do you expect Cotto/Clottey to be a sellout?
If not a sellout, very, very close. Will be a packed and wild crowd.
Has Gus Johnson started yelling yet about how great Jermaine Taylor is?
Not quite yet.
Any chance Lamont Peterson gets hometown fight in DC to defend his title if he wins tomorrow night?
Not sure but I would love it. Nice and close to my house.
What's the best part of your job? Worst?
Going to the fights. Flying there.
Hey Pal, You wanna fight the big boys why don't you do it the way most others do, BY EARNING IT! Make a name for yourself. I'm sure ESPN would love to have you back, Shobox is perfect for you, fight there, better yet just fight. Your a good fighter, fun to watch and could become a champ, just show you want it. Boxing owes you nothing. Hope to see you SOON Sincerly, Joe Boxing Fan
Well said, Mr. Letter.
Dan, it looks like the Association for Boxing Commissions will be discussing instant reply for cuts/butts etc. at their summer meeting. Any thoughts on instant replay in boxing?
It should be used in a limited way for certain rulings.
Dan, Who's calling the HBO fights tomorrow night?
Papa, Max, Lennox.
Hey Dan, Any news on any of the fighters of this past season of "The Contender" getting any action these days? I am intersted to see Troy Ross, Felix Cora Jr. and Rico Hoye and was wondering if they have anything in the pipeline? Thanks!
Ross is possibly going to fight Ola Afolabi for a belt on June 20.
What are the odds you give Penalosa at the upset, or will it be considered a upset if he wins?
I think it would be a big upset.
Gamboa's people were reluctant to throw him in with Elio Rojas, but are willing to feed him to Caballero? What are they thinking!
Way, way more money to fight Caballero than Rojas.
Just read in loal paper that Kendall Holt is expected to plead guilty to 1 count of money laundering charges stemming from his managers drug charges.
He did plead guilty. He have been better off fighting hard against Bradley than of moving drug money.
Ok, Freaks, thanks for the chat. Enjoy all the fights this weekend and check out FNF tonight. And read the notebook and this week's blog. Gotta go on a conference call with Pacquiao. Talk to you next week from Vegas. Peace.
