Fight Season Has Arrived!

Top Rank, Golden Boy, HBO, Showtime, WBC, WBO – big names are making big news and boxing is undisputedly back.

On Saturday, April 12, Manny Pacquiao left the ring as a champion once again.  He’s already committed to take on the winner of the Marquez vs. Alvarado bout that will happen at The Forum on May 17.  But a funny thing could happen on the way to The Forum…meaning the Mayweather vs. Maidana outcome.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather will take on Marcos “El Chino” Maidana on May 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  According to the website BadLeftHook.com, Maidana “is a 24 billion to 1 underdog” and we’re pretty sure that is hyperbole.  It’s true that Mayweather has a 45-0 record to the Argentinian’s 35-3 but the sporting world loves an underdog, doesn’t it?  Let’s just say that Maidana pulls off the KO.  Would a Mayweather loss mean we’d finally see him in the ring with Pacquiao?

Pacquiao’s long-time trainer Freddie Roach is willing but not so sure.  “We’d love to fight [Floyd] Mayweather but there have been so many excuses. He really doesn’t seem to want to fight us, but we want that fight. I think my guy beats him,” Roach told the The Daily Telegraph.  He goes on to comment on Pacquiao’s legacy. “The problem he has is history will judge this. The thing is he is the one who won’t fight us. Manny is going to go down in history as a great fighter, the greatest fighter of his era. Mayweather is going to go down as a great fighter, but the guy who never fought Manny Pacquiao.”

No matter what, we can always count on Mayweather for excitement so don’t miss the main event on May 3.
