DANNY GARCIA LAYING BIG NAMES OUT

Danny Garcia continued his winning ways last night by destroying and possibly retiring Erik Morales.A brutal KO that landing Morales almost outside the ring through the ropes puts the radar on Garcia as one of boxing’s elite fighters.

 The choice of Morales was an odd choice from the beginning because Garcia already beat him and outboxed him badly at that.Their also wasn’t an outcry for a rematch.Most fans would have rather seen Garcia defend his titles against Zab Judah especially since the card was in Brooklyn.But regardless of that,Garcia has put together an undefeated streak of 25-0 with big wins over Morales twice and an impressive KO win over Amir Khan this past summer.

 It will be interesting to see who is picked as Garcia’s next opponent.Their is alot of talk of a possible fight with Lucas Mattysse who is the intern WBC champion and has a record of 32-2 with his 2 losses controversial on the cards.Those losses were to Devon Alexander in St.Louis where Alexander received a hometown decision.The other was to Zab Judah and while he seemed to win more rounds and dropped Judah he still lost another controversial decision.Mattysse has not been convincingly defeated yet and has 30 KO’s which makes him dangerous against anyone.Garcia has been landing the hook to knock out his last opponents so we know he has power also.Hopefully we get this fight next.

MALIGNAGGI WINS WAR…HATTON REMATCH NEXT?

 Paulie Malignaggi won a split decision last night in a war with Pablo Cano that possibly sets up a rematch with Ricky Hatton early next year if Hatton can do his part and win his comeback fight November 24 against Senchenko.

 Throughout the first half of the fight Malignaggi controlled each round with the jab and while Cano landed his shots,most were blocked or brushed off.A cut above Cano’s eye in the same area as the Morales fight reopened and got bigger as the night went on.Cano,who had come into the fight overweight and was not eligible to win the WBA title had his moments at times but never really hurt Malignaggi until the 11th round where he caught him and Malignaggi went down for the first time since the Cotto fight in 2006.Malignaggi was not hurt and rose immediately and went on to outbox Cano the last round and a half.The scoring was strange as one judge had Malignaggi losing 118-109 which how can you not expect at least one score like that these days as boxing judges get more ridiculous by the fight.The other judges had it 114-113 which were too close for what actually happened in the fight.Malignaggi won the fight more convincingly than that.Cano’s only shining moment was the knockdown,other than that he lost 8 of the other 11 rounds.Some rounds were close but Cano lost them.The judges probably were caught up in the moment of hearing Cano’s entire family as a cheering section in the first row.Iv’e never seen that before.And if the fight was close in some fans eyes keep in mind Cano did not do his job and came in not making weight so on a close card he does not deserve the benefit of the doubt for anything.Nevertheless, Malignaggi won and despite some of the unloyal fans in the crowd who can’t score a fight and booed the result, it sets up all eyes on Ricky Hatton on November 24.Hopefully, Hatton wins and we get Malignaggi-Hatton 2.

PREDICTIONS FOR BROOKLYN’S FIRST BOXING EVENT SATURDAY

Lets get right to the big 4 fights everyone will be anticipating…..

1.N’DAM VS KID CHOCOLATE-I see Kid Chocolate winning this fight fairly convincingly.N’Dam is an unknown fighter who is considered decent and a tough fighter but I think Quillin is coming into his own and has great skills.Kid Chocolate will batter the body and wear his opponent down here and win round after round.I can see a TKO but most likely a decision win for Quillin.

Winner: Kid Chocolate by UD

2.DEVON ALEXANDER VS RANDALL BAILEY- Randall Bailey will have a hard time connecting that knockout punch on Alexander all night.I think Alexander outworks Bailey pretty much every round.The fight will stay competitive because of the threat of Bailey’s KO power though.But I see Alexander doing what he always does.He will tag Bailey then step out alot and rack up points with the 1-2 and jab.

Winner: Devon Alexander by UD

3.PAULIE MALIGNAGGI VS PABLO CESAR CANO-This fight has Malignaggi-Diaz 2 written all over it.Cano is a decent fighter but Paulie is on a higher level.If Eric Morales can jab Cano’s face to a bloody mess,Malignaggi will land just as much and probably alot more.Cano will have a moment or two but Paulie wins this one going away.

Winner: Paulie Malignaggi by wide UD

4.ERIC MORALES VS DANNY GARCIA-Morales will take a beating in this fight.How can the outcome be any different when Morales is a year older and Garcia is now a champion and his confidence is through the roof.Garcia beats Morales up again and the ref stops it late.

Winner: Danny Garcia by TKO 10

RANDALL BAILEY DEFENDS HIS IBF TITLE AGAINST DEVON ALEXANDER IN BROOKLYN

October 21st, 2012

                                                         By Magic Mike

I think everybody but me is picking the quick ( 23-1 ) 13 KO’s Devon Alexander, and why not the kid is good. The boxing world is acting like that 11th rd ko Bailey ( 43-7 ) 37 KO’s put on Mike Jones ( NO NOT THAT MIKE JONES, THIS MIKE JONES ) was luck. If you put your bifocal glasses on and look at his record real good you will see he has 37 KO’s out of 50 fight’s. ( DO THE MATH )! That means watch the hell out for his right hook or just watch out for the right hand period! On Saturday night that is what Devon ‘ The Great ‘ will be doing. I see Alexander avoiding Bailey as much as he can but at the same time trying to use work of his SouthPaw skills and trying to land some points. This fight is going to the cards unless ‘ The Great’s ‘ face walk’s into or shake hands with Bailey’s right hand. Bailey wins by SD. ur boy @dmagicmike88

DR UPPERCUT’S 5 PUNCH COMBO

Dr Uppercut’s 5 Punch Combo

                                                                           Jab

 

DING! From the opening bell Rios-Alvarado was everything we expected and more. I loved Rios telling Robert Garcia “I fuckin love this!” in Spanish in between the 1st and 2nd rounds. Rios has an unbelievable chin and it was in full display taking shots from Mile High Mike all night long. I thought Alvarado won the most of the early rounds but noted at no point was any man buckled or staggered or dazed through 5. But in the 6th it all changed, as did the momentum and feel of the fight. Once Rios hurt Alvarado he attacked like a pit bull in a meat locker! He had a second burst of energy and didn’t let up. He forced the stoppage with a controlled effective aggression. It was a great fight and a great win for Rios who in my mind took a great opportunity Saturday night and turned himself into a major star.

                                                                         Cross  


Mike Alvarado has nothing to be ashamed of, and fans need to continue to support this tough fighter. I would hope he is not disregarded because he now has a loss on his record. He showed a great chin and was never even knocked down. He was aggressive, showed a willingness to mix it up, and displayed inside and outside skills. He knew to jab and fight outside but his heart wouldn’t let him. His willingness to fight inside was the key to making it the dazzling spectacle it was, but probably lead to his loss. He was actually controlling the fight from the outside, but wasn’t able to decline Rios invitation to trade inside often enough to pull off the victory.

                                                                  Left Hook

 
Where does each fighter go from here??  Rios is rumored to be in line for the winner of Pac-Marquez 4, or for the Dec. 15th slot vacated by Tim Bradley. But who would he fight? The 140 lb division looks like a cocktail party hosted by Oscar De La Hoya. I don’t really see who he could fight in December that fights at 140 right now. I would love to see him fight Pac or Marquez. The Boxer/Brawler matchup would be fun in either way. I would favor him against Marquez, and vs Pac would be a tossup. Alvarado would have a bunch of great comeback fight against Golden Boy fighters, but his Top Rank prospects aren’t as promising. If Marquez loses, I think a matchup against JMM would be great, although Marquez wouldn’t really go for it. Maybe Bob could convince Zab Judah to step in and face him, otherwise a showcase fight then a rematch with Rios. Both men have exciting prospects for their future, despite the black cloud the Top Rank Golden Boy Cold War is putting over potential fights.
 

                                                                   Right Hook

The TBRB(Transnational Boxing Ratings Board) is here! In a grassroots effort to counter the Ring’s change in policy, several writers and bloggers have formed a non profit rankings panel in an effort to provide an unbiased guide to the top fighters in each weight class. I fully support their efforts and I am excited for the panel, consisting of many boxing scribes you probably know and follow on Twitter. Check out the rankings here http://www.tbrb.org/rankings/ . I wanted everyone to be aware of this because I will probably be using this as my main ranking resource in my future writings. In summary…It’s pretty cool. Check it out for yourself!

                                                                      Uppercut

 

      So, unfortunately I have to disagree with my esteemed colleague Magic Mike about the Rios stoppage. I was in my living room screaming,” Take a knee!! TAKE A KNEE!!!” When Alvarado went against the ropes he was providing no offense and little to no defense. Yes he is a WARRIOR, and he could have recovered, but he needed to stop the onslaught that Rios was inflicting. For the first time all night, they were no longer trading punches, Rios was throwing unanswered, and most were landing. As a certified badass, it was obvious Alvarado didn’t know the strategy for this situation, cause a banger like him is never in that situation. His superior chin was his undoing, if he would have fell like Martinez did, he would have had legal time to recover and continue the fight. I personally feel the best call would have been a standing 8 count, but I’m not sure whether that was an option under CA rules. That would have been best but I think the referee made a good stoppage in the interest of fighter safety.

Donaire once again gets no competition

 Unfortunately for fight fans who just witnessed one of the great fight this year in Alvarado vs Rios ,they had to endure as the “main event” another boring fight where Nonito Donaire totally outclassed his opponent Nishioka.

 Not that it is in any way Donaire’s fault that the fight was getting booed badly the first few rounds.It’s just a case that Donaire is way too talented for his last few opponents and the fights have been uncompetitive.Donaire won each round easily and Nishioka looked scared to open up the first few rounds.This led to him being outworked badly and by being overly defensive it was uneventful.Donaire knocked Nishioka down in the 6th and it waked Nishioka up a bit as he at least tried to fight back.But it was short lived as he was again knocked down in the 9th and Nishioka’s corner threw in the towel.It seemed premature because he didn’t look too hurt and he looked ready to resume fighting.But it wouldn’t have mattered if the fight continued because everytime Nishioka took chances he was knocked down.Total case of a fighter in Nishioka padding his record the last 8 years being undefeated,then when he fights an elite fighter he gets exposed.

BRANDON RIOS VS MANNY PACQUIAO..DOES MANNY HAVE THE GUTS TO AGREE TO THIS FIGHT?

 

 I was very impressed with Brandon Rios this past saturday night.I was equally impressed with Mike Alvarado.Both put on a fight of the year war that will no doubt earn them both big fights in the future and most likely a rematch.But the talk of Rios moving up and going after bigger names is interesting.The name I really found to be a good opponent for Rios is Manny Pacquiao.

 Pacquiao needs new opponents after Marquez in December.Even if he loses again he still will be a draw especially if he loses a close decision.Marquez will give him hell but won’t knock him out.Brandon Rios on the other hand can knock out Pacquiao.Rios proved that even by getting outworked he has a great chin and the heart of a lion.Pacquiao has had a lack of power in recent fights.The one punch power that flattened Hatton and made Cotto go down to one knee hasn’t been present in the last two years.Put him in the ring with Rios and this could be interesting.Rios will be looking to take his head off.While I see Pacquiao outlanding Rios especially in the early rounds,I wonder how Pacman can handle those thudding body shots and hard right hands.Pacquiao is older and not as slick as he once was so Rios will land some big shots.

 As always it all depends on whether Arum will put Pacquiao in with someone like Rios.The mayweather fight is so off the radar for Pacquiao so much so that you don’t even hear fans talk about it anymore.So while Mayweather takes on a young,impressive fighter like Canelo or a P4P top fighter like Sergio Martinez in May 2013, lets see if Pacquiao also steps up and takes on an equally dangerous opponent in Brandon Rios.

RIOS WINS A WAR WITH ALVARADO

 

In one of the best fights of the year,Brandon Rios made a huge statement by making a great comeback and knocking out Mike Alvarado in the 7th round.

 The fight was a slugfest pretty much from the opening bell.Alvarado was more busy outlanding Rios each of the first few rounds as Rios continued to land flush haymakers on Alvarado.It was a war each round with each fighter landing at will  on each other.Around the 5th and 6th round I thought Rios was in trouble because he looked exhausted with his mouth open gasping for air and Alvarado being the bigger fighter looked not to be tired at all.Alvarado was starting to put rounds in the bank by using angles and the jab to outland Rios each round.That is until round 7th round when Rios landed a flush right hand and Alvarado stumbled to the ropes.Rios seeing this was his opportunity for a KO went in a missed a few shots but then landed more right to the chin and the ref stopped the fight.

Some fans might think it was an early stoppage and it might have been but I think Alvarado was going down anyway.He had his hands up somewhat but looked dazed and wasn’t effectively blocking the shots.Rios made a huge statement tonight not only by beating a bigger,undefeated fighter in Alvarado.He also proved he has power still after moving up to 140 and his chin held up against bigger,stronger punches.He obviously has a ton of heart also.Now we will wait and see if we get a rematch or Rios against an even bigger name.
