Khan has a notorious glass jaw.

Working with new trainer Virgil Hunter, overrated prizefighter Amir Khan will battersubstandard Mexican Carlos Molina on Saturday night at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California.

Khan (26-3, 18 KOs), a Pakistani-British boxer who at 17 became the youngest Englishman to win an Olympic medal when he captured silver as a lightweight at the 2004 games in Greece, relinquished his WBA world light welterweight belt in July by suffering a brutal fourth round TKO loss to WBC light welterweight champion “Swift” Danny Garcia at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After being overwhelmed by Garcia (24-0, 15 KOs), “King Khan,” who hasn’t left the squared circle victorious since flooring Zab Judah in July 2011, decided to stop working with Boxing Hall of Famer Freddie Roach and instead hired Hunter.

“We’ve sat down and watched the Garcia fight together and we’ve been working on some new stuff from that, including being more patient and waiting for the right shots at the right time and not over-committing myself,” said Khan, 25, who, along with his younger brother, Haroon, successfully managed to fight off armed thugs trying to steal his expensive Range Rover this past October in Birmingham, England. “When I watch the Garcia fight, I can see that I’m like a totally different fighter. Virgil said to me when we watched it again ‘now you tell me what you’re doing wrong in the fight and what you’d do differently now’ and so I told him.”

Khan had teamed with Roach since 2008 and became one of the most youthful British world champs ever at the age of 22.

Boxing legend, and obnoxious blowhard, Floyd Mayweather is determined to scrap twice in 2013 on Mexican holidays

I mean, the guy hangs with Justin Bieber.

Boxing legend, and obnoxious blowhard, Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he wants to fight twice this coming year on major Mexican holidays.

“Floyd has told us that he is fighting twice in 2013 with the first date being May 4 — Cinco De Mayweather — and the second date being Sept. 14,” said Leonard Ellerbe, one of Mayweather’s closest advisers.

Ideally, Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs) would chose to throw fists with Manny Pacquiao, who offered to accept 45% of the pay-per-view revenue no matter the victor to finally cement a welterweight bout.

The 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs), voted “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the BWAA, will battle Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time tonight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Conversely, Mayweather, who was released to the public on August 3 after serving 63 days behind bars at the Clark County Detention Center for beating his former sweetheart two years ago while a couple of their children watched, last fought on Cinco de Mayo when he defeated powerful Puerto Rican icon Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision to gain the WBA (Super) & WBC Diamond light middleweight titles.

Manny Pacquiao will finally knock Juan Manuel Marquez onto Queer Street and triumph decisively this weekend

Pacquiao will finally batter Marquez.

Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao will throw fists with rugged Mexican “Dinamita” Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs) most recently fought in June when he had his WBO light welterweight belt stolen by criminally incompetent judges who awarded Timothy Bradley an insane split decision victory.

Meanwhile, the 39-year-old Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KOs), who has captured eight crowns in six different weight classes and is currently ranked by Ring Magazine as the sixth preeminent prizefighter today, last vacated the squared circle in April with a lopsided unanimous decision triumph over Ukrainian Serhiy Fedchenko in Mexico City.

Pacquiao, who has earned a draw and two conquests over Marquez since their initial meeting in May 2004, won an extremely debatable majority decision over “Dinamita” in their third clash last November 12 in “Sin City.”

After beating substandard Mexican Carlos Molina, Amir Khan will continue to disappoint

http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02277/khan_2277205b.jpg

Amir Khan is not a worthy adversary.

Overrated prizefighter Amir Khan will trump substandard Mexican Carlos Molina on December 15 at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California.

The 25-year-old Khan (26-3, 18 KOs), a Pakistani-British boxer who at 17 became the youngest Englishman to win an Olympic medal when he captured silver as a lightweight at the 2004 games in Greece, relinquished his WBA world light welterweight belt in July by suffering a brutal fourth round TKO loss to WBC light welterweight champion “Swift” Danny Garcia at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After being overwhelmed by Garcia (24-0, 15 KOs), “King Khan,” who hasn’t left the squared circle victorious since flooring Zab Judah in July 2011, decided to stop working with Boxing Hall of Famer Freddie Roach and instead hired reigning Boxing Writers Association of America trainer of the year Virgil Hunter.

Khan, who, along with his younger brother, Haroon, successfully managed to fight off armed thugs trying to steal his expensive Range Rover this past October in Birmingham, England, had teamed with Roach since 2008 and became one of the most youthful British world champs ever at the age of 22.

Unfortunately for the battered bloke, who claimed that Roach’s struggle with Parkinson’s disease hindered their training, “The Choir Boy” was not the issue.

Sergio Martinez is planning to beat mediocre bloke Martin Murray and pothead Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. in 2013

Sergio Martinez is a truly great prizefighter.

The Ring and WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is planning to defend his belts on April 27 at a venue to be determined in the Argentinean’s native country.

Martin Murray is the desired opponent, as long as he wins his upcoming fight,” said Martinez promoter Lou DiBella, 52, a graduate of Tufts University and Harvard Law School. “There’s a huge competitive thing between Argentina and the Brits.”

The 30-year-old Murray (24-0-1, 10 KOs), a standout amateur pugilist who was born in St. Helens, is next slated to battle Venezuelan Jorge Navarro on November 24 at the Manchester Arena in England.

After suffering a partially torn meniscus while defeating Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. by a unanimous decision to capture the WBC middleweight title on September 15 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, the 37-year-old Martinez decided to have arthroscopic surgery on his injured right knee on Monday in Spain.

Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs), the 2010 “Fighter of the Year” who is currently ranked by Ring Magazine as the fourth preeminent pound-for-pound boxer in the world, also sustained a broken left hand while utterly outclassing the 26-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) for 11 rounds.

Floyd Mayweather’s latest yellow excuse to avoid fighting is that ‘Manny Pacquiao is desperate’

If Mayweather wasn’t a yellow coward, Manny Pacquiao could be the man to shut his mouth.

After offering to accept 45% of the pay-per-view revenue no matter the victor to finally cement a welterweight bout, the insatiable Floyd Mayweather had the audacity to state that Manny Pacquiao’s willingness to receive less cash proves the Filipino’s desperation.

The 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs), voted “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the BWAA, will battle Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time on December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Conversely, Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), who was released to the public on August 3 after serving 63 days behind bars at the Clark County Detention Center for beating his former sweetheart two years ago while a couple of their children watched, is not scheduled to enter the squared circle at any point soon.

“In my opinion, Manny Pacquiao is desperate,” said Mayweather, 35, a longstanding WBC world welterweight champion who was named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007. “He doesn’t make his own decisions, because Manny Pacquiao has a boss, his promoter [Bob Arum], who makes his decisions. Listen, Manny Pacquiao, whether he got cheated or not [against Bradley], his stock drops enormously after taking a loss. No matter how you took a loss, you took a loss.”

Although set for surgery, is Sergio Martinez readying to fight Saul Alvarez?

A Martinez fistfight against Canelo would be extremely intriguing.

After suffering a partially torn meniscus while defeating Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. by a unanimous decision to win the WBC middleweight title on September 15 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez has decided to have surgery on his injured right knee on November 12 in Spain.

Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs), the 2010 “Fighter of the Year” who is currently ranked by Ring Magazine as the third preeminent pound-for-pound boxer in the world, was uncertain if he wanted to undergo the knife or opt for rehabilitation.

“We are happy with the medical findings, everything will be faster than expected,” said Martinez, 37, who also sustained a broken left hand while outclassing the 26-year-old Chavez (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs) for 11 rounds. “I need the gym.”

Martinez adviser Sampson Lewkowicz said the electrifying Argentinean has designed a blueprint and is healing well.

Whether stoned from blazing, or using cannabis-laden eye drops, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. deserves a severe punishment

Hopefully, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. will take this time to think about his priorities.

Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. tested positive for marijuana after relinquishing the WBC middleweight title by unanimous decision to The Ring and WBC Diamond middleweight champion Sergio Martinez on September 15 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As a result of being snagged with dirty piss, Chavez, Jr. (46-1-1-1, 32 KOs), whose nickname is “The Legend Goes On” because he is the son of iconic pugilist Julio Caesar Chavez, was temporarily suspended on Wednesday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The lazy 26-year-old will likely be banned from competing in the squared circle for a year and fined $300,000 for blazing, or using cannabis-laden eye drops, prior to the bout against Martinez (50-2-2, 28 KOs).

“Mr. Chavez’s license is suspended, but there is no finding of fact on the merits of the case,”commission executive director Keith Kizer told ESPN.com. “He had a license to fight in Nevada and we suspended it pending a hearing. Chavez had no objection to it. He wasn’t going to fight again this year anyway.”

Bob Arum is a liar who shielded the great Manny Pacquiao from the fearless Miguel Cotto

http://sportsbycolin.com/bob-arum-is-a-liar-who-shielded-the-great-manny-pacquiao-from-the-fearless-miguel-cotto/#

http://myboxingfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/09450aa6f29030aa091af71752f54baf-getty-boxing-phi-pri-pacquiao-cotto.jpg

The 2012 version of Miguel Cotto is far different than the one Manny Pacquiao fought in 2009.

While preparing to batter junior middleweight champion “No Doubt” Austin Trout for his belt on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, powerful Puerto Rican icon Miguel Cotto vigorously disputed promoter Bob Arum’s claim that he was offered $13 million to fight Manny Pacquiao.

Cotto (37-3, 30 KOs), a four-time world titlist in three weight divisions, last threw fists on Cinco de Mayo when he relinquished the WBA world light-welterweight crown via unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs) in a memorably bruising and bloody bout.

Conversely, the 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs), voted “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the BWAA, will battle Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth time on December 8 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Are Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather preparing to fight on April 20?

http://sportsbycolin.com/are-manny-pacquiao-and-floyd-mayweather-preparing-to-fight-on-april-20/#

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2012/01/23/article-2090725-0F67D65500000578-831_634x454.jpg

Although a better overall prizefighter, Mayweather will find a reason to not fight Pacquiao.

Provided Manny Pacquiao can overcome Juan Manuel Marquez in their fourth bout on December 8 at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, speculation is running rampant that the Filipino icon will finally battle “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather next spring on April 20.

“I have talked with Manny and we agreed to hold his fight on April 20,” Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told the Manila Bulletin on Wednesday.

In stark contrast to the 33-year-old Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KOs), voted “Fighter of the Decade” for the 2000s by the BWAA, the 35-year-old Mayweather (43-0, 26 KOs), named The Ring “Fighter of the Year” in 1998 and 2007, has yet to make any future plans.

Starting on June 1, Mayweather, the longstanding WBC welterweight king who last defeated powerful Puerto Rican bruiser Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision to gain the WBA world light-welterweight crown on Cinco de Mayo, served 63 days behind bars at theClark County Detention Center for beating his former sweetheart two years ago while a couple of their children watched.
