Mayweather Vs Mosley Fight In 250 Words

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. demonstrated what he said about himself as the God-gifted boxer, and that Shane Mosley is merely talented. But if only God just allowed it that Mayweather just fall down on the canvas after he took a hard hit to his face, even if Mosley still lost in a decision, it would have been a strong evidence that God really exists and that He takes the side of the just, and not the vain, after millions of boxing fans storming His Heaven with prayers for Mayweather to fall down on his ass, and like most prayers that matter the most, God would just don’t want to do anything with it, and let Mayweather stood on his feet, a strong point that Money may indeed a God-gifted shit.

Shane Mosley, on the other hand, is a picture of class after defeat. You cannot but admire his corner too especially his trainer Naazim Richardson. It was around 10th or 11th round when Nazzim reminded Mosley of how a great fighter he is and that knocking out naughty boys is what he does best. He made Mosley repeat, too, the words: I want to come back and knock this kid out because that’s what I do best, also because I hate this kid! He still lost the fight anyway. He thanked Floyd for the opportunity, said he will review the fight at home and see for himself what went wrong. Mosley is now 38.

LiveBlogging Manny Pacquiao Fight!

10:54 am... OHMYGAWD! This is the day! It's finally today! Manny Pacquiao Vs. Joshua Clottey! Now wait...'

10:59 am... Rise up from bed with a sweet hang'over, fix a coffee no sugar, and make some preparations for the Manny Pacquiao fight, which will be in a couple of hours now..'

Exactly 2 days after the fight:

There's not much to say really. Manny Pacquiao fought a tortoise. He tried to break the shell. But it just don't feel right. So Pacman tried to lure the head of the poor creature to come out and at least tried to entertain the huge crowd who came to see them dance the fandango. It failed. So that's the end of it.

Hope Big Bob can find a better slugger to feed the Pac-Monster for next fight!

One Notch Power in Pinoy, One Less Fury in Latinos

In the main event of Pinoy Power 3 / Latin Fury13, the Filipino Flash, Nonito Donaire was fed with his regular fix of Mexican potluck in Manuel Vargas (26-4-1), a late substitute. Nonito gobbled up his food in less than 7 minutes.

In the co-featured bout of the card, Bernabe Conception (30-2 ) fought against Mario Santiago (21-2) of Puerto Rico.

The Filipino pugilist looked good in the first round, landing few heavy punches to the head of the taller Puerto Rican. Both fighters warmed up in the second and third. The fourth had Santiago backpedaling. Conception seemed better in his footwork and a little busier in his offense than the last time I saw him against Luevano.

The Filipino floored Santiago in the sixth, but did not able to put up a significant follow-up offensive in the remaining minutes as well as the whole 7th round. He’s back again to his old bad habit. If he does nothing in the following rounds, he’ll stupidly lose this another bout of his career. Conception was apparently not an intelligent fighter, but good enough to win this bout. For now.

The next feature bout was a special favorite. Jerry Penalosa (54-9-2, 36 KOs) fought against Eric Morel (43-2)

The 1st and 2nd rounds showed Morrel with his repertoire of footwork and combinations of punches. Jerry was in his usual specialty of blocking punches that could demoralize opponents, and throwing counter-punches of his own that staggered Eric. The third was a start of a possible making of a classic.

One couldn't but also admired the slick movement of Morel. With naughtiness to boot as he held on and head-butted Jerry and succeeded to open cuts on his face, and also succeeded to make Penalosa looked tougher.

The later rounds were a classic showing of vintage fearless Jerry. This time Morel was riding a bicycle that only moved backwards as Jerry continued his relentless attack. If only he had a braver opponent. Jerry, of course, lost his fight in a dubious split decision.

Next bout after that was fucking shameful. Montiel licked Ciso Morales in the first round.. puking… puking.. s**t!

Lopez Wins; And Gamboa Is A New Star!

So I am back to blogging boxing. It’s Gamboa Vs Mtagwa. And, man, I want to tell you, I’ve now a new favorite boxer in Yuriorkis Gamboa, a very talented, fast, and powerful Cuban pugilist. You should admire him the first time you see him showing his skills of sweet-science in the ring. I am all admiration, no, awed, he’s simply awesome the first round of his defense fight against the veteran and tough Tanzanian. From now on, I’ll be looking forward for all his future fights.

The first round. Yuriorkis Gamboa seems to want to enjoy the sweetness of his handiwork as power punches hammered Mtagwa, but the Cuban apparently don’t want the fight to end first round too early.

The second round is one sweetest moment in boxing. It was a massacre! But one should credit Mtagwa for his toughness as he tried to handle the blowing bombs landing on his chin and body. Here comes Yuriorkis Gamboa (17-0, 15 KOs) - a new star of boxing!


The main event features Steven Luevano against Juan Manuel Lopez. I’d once said before that Luevano will not be a champion for a long time. He’s almost outclassed by a pinoy fighter, Bernabe Conception, who was disqualified for knocking out Luevano at the wrong time, split seconds after the bell. Now, here’s Luevano again fighting JM Lopez, an undefeated star of Puerto Rico.

The first round up to the fifth round is a typical semi-exciting fight when a boring technical boxer (Luevano) fights semi-exciting boxer (Lopez). The latter, of course, is widely ahead of my unofficial scorecard.

Sixth round, as expected, Luevano is backpedaling and try to avoid the punches of the other slugger. The said slugger, having tested the power, or lack of it, of Luevano’s puches, gains much confidence and bereft of respect of the champion attack him with relentless hooks, uppercuts, straights, and body shot. It will not be long now when we finally see the end of this fight.

Seconds into the seventh round, a nice right uppercut put the champion into senselessness.

A showdown between Juan Manuel Lopez (28-0, 25 KOs) and Yuriorkis Gamboa will be an exciting fight to look forward to in the coming months. Arum should make that fight happen!
