Cotto Vs. Canelo - Superfight tonight! Bradley Sends Rios To Retirement.

Boxing fans should rejoice.  This may actually be their real Superbowl.  Mayweather vs Pacquaio disappointed many fans of the sport.  I actually enjoyed it, but it definitely did not live up to the hype or talk from both opposing teams.  The difference here are the fighters.  Canelo is tough and he knocks out people.  Cotto is tough and he knocks out people as well.  That alone should get people excited as many fans have a bad taste in their mouth from Mayweather's final fight.

 I made a Canelo beats Cotto prediction months back.  I'll stick with it.  I have not really followed the lead up to this fight.  I 've read a few things here and there about Cotto and some belt, but to me that's not interesting. 

What is interesting is to see if Cotto still has it as he gets older.  He's trained by Freddie Roach, who is well known in the sport and he seems to have confidence in his trainer.  In fact I think if Cotto manages to edge out Canelo, it would have to be with some kind of master game plan.  It's possible that may occur, but I can't see it happening.  I predict Canelo will hurt Cotto at some point in the fight.  If it is the other way around, I would be shocked.  I think it will be action packed.

Lastly, Tim Bradley sent Brandon Rios into retirement.  I did not see that coming.  I knew they had a fight, i didn't watch it.  I saw clips of Rios hurt in the fight though.  I was very surprised at him being hurt by Bradley who isn't really known as a big puncher, but has surprised tough opponents in the past.  What's next for Bradley?  I would love to see a Bradley vs Broner, Bradley vs Khan, Bradley vs Porter.

Mayweather Vs Berto - Canelo Vs Cotto

Two fights.  One is expected to be big, the other is expected to be a non event.  Everyone is excited about Cotto vs Canelo.  Freddie Roach is back again talking to the press.  He talked alot of smack leading up to the Mayweather Pacquiao fight and I don't know if anyone will take his predictions seriously anymore.  Canelo is tough and Cotto is tough.  My money is on Canelo though.  Younger and I believe he is stronger.

Now, Mayweather vs Berto.  Its not the opponent everyone wants to see for his final fight.   Some want a Pac rematch.  Others want a Thurman fight and Amir Khan wants a Mayweather Khan fight.  Berto is an exciting fighter, but he's not the best.  Floyd is.  If he can make this fight exciting it can be a pretty good match up.  I've read things about personal issues regarding these two,  it doesn't matter.  It won't sell this fight.  I also believe Floyd will fight again to get win number 50 against someone who's a huge name.  The problem is, whoever that person is probably still has yet to develop a huge name.

Tim Tebow Signs With The Eagles!

Here's some news.  Tim Tebow has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.  Funny thing is, I predicted Tim Tebow signing with the Eagles over 2 years ago.  What's more funny than that?  How about the fact that Mark Sanchez is on the Eagles with Tim Tebow.   Hopefully Eagles fans won't be having Jets flashbacks.  Some people are reporting that Tebow has improved greatly, only time will tell on that one.  Controversial decisions and Chip Kelly seem to go hand and hand.  All the best of luck to Tim.

Mayweather Vs. Pacquiao: ITS ON!

UPDATE 1/31/2015:   NOT SO FAST!  As has been with all reporting regarding the subject of a Mayweather vs Pacquiao bout, it seems that everyone is still jumping the gun.  Now Boxingscene has a report that says otherwise and its coming from the head of Showtime Sports.  All I know is this, I won't buy a Mayweather vs Somebody else or a Pacquiao vs somebody else.  I'm done with either of these guys till they fight each other.

Mayweather Is Fighting Pacquiao!?!? Not So Fast...

I've been reading and hearing about how pacquiao vs mayweather is nearly a done deal.  Apparently all Floyd has to do is sign on the dotted line.  Multiple news sources are reporting that Manny has agreed to Floyd's terms and that Floyd now has to just sign off on that.  Ok, first things first.  Both are old.  Both are at the end of their careers.  Both aren't exciting as they used to be.  Both should have fought each other around 5 years ago.  Why drag this out.  Stop reporting about non stories such as Floyd has to sign the deal and its a go.  When its for real and inked, then lets hear about it.

Now my thoughts as I prefaced earlier.  Not really excited. There's tons of fights in boxing that are more exciting than this. The problem is, those are not happening either.  That's the problem with this sport.  Guerrero vs Thurman?  Good.  Broner vs Molina?  Who gives a crap.  Just like Pacman vs. undefeated Algieri or whatever his name was.  How many of you honestly were following this undefeated Pacman opponent before he fought Manny.  Exactly.

  I'm going to give some points that this fight needs to have in order to be worth it.

1.) action

2.) knockout

3.) interesting lead up

By the way, if they do fight, Mayweather wins.
