It’s no secret that the Boston Celtics are going to have get younger, a fact Danny Ainge knows all too well. Ainge recently said as much on WEEI, and fans like me are well aware that the upcoming season will almost certainly be the last hurrah for the big three. This year’s draft was arguably a good haul, with Purdue’s top two scorers joining the Cs, including big man JaJuan Johnson(notes). Gilbert Brown could be yet another solid offseason addition.

Pau Gasol: To keep or not to keep, that is the question

No Comments

LOS ANGELES — In the still of the NBA postseason, when the news is slow and the rumors are fast, the Los Angeles Lakers are making a lot of noise. Trade noises, that is.

Although the talks involve Lamar Odom and a handful of disposable Lakers, the eye of the gossip swirls violently around Pau Gasol, LA’s 7-foot, 250-pound center-forward, who can be electrifying on his best days, yet so painfully drab on his worst days.

Gasol played all 82 games last regular season, norming 18.8 points and 10.2 rebounds per. But his numbers declined badly in the playoffs —- 13.1 points and 7.8 rebounds —- making it way easier for the eventual champions Dallas Mavericks to sweep LA in a one-sided second round series.

Take this (open book) test right now, Mr. Floyd Mayweather Jr.

No Comments

By Michael Marley,

Even his worst, sworn enemies would have to admit that, when at his office, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has never given less than his all.

Ditto for the gym, the one exception being the overplayed fluke sparring session when southpaw Paul Spadafora, a big talent who has problems with his social conduct, caught him not in tiptop condition.

If Manny Pacquiao is the salt of the earth Pinoy who was born in an extreme cradle of poverty, then Mayweather is the pepper who adds needed spice to the present day fistic scene.

Has it escaped everyone’s attention that, just as students nationwide are chanting “no more classes, no more books, no more teacher’s dirty looks” and going on summer vacation, Mayweather is going back to his square ring classroom?

Pacman insists Marquez is dangerous

MANILA, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao is not looking at Juan Manuel Marquez as somebody out to cash a paycheck and retire.

Told about the overwhelming 8-1 odds in his favor, Pacquiao told the Bulletin over the weekend that Marquez remains a dangerous foe and that taking him for granted is tantamount to jumping off a cliff.

Pacquiao is facing Marquez on Nov. 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and despite the odds, the Filipino star said he has to be in top shape. Continue reading “Pacman insists Marquez is dangerous” »

Arum wary of Marquez’ style

No Comments

MANILA, Philippines - Top Rank chairman Bob Arum knows that WBO welterweight champion Rep. Manny Pacquiao won’t take challenger Juan Manuel Marquez lightly because the Mexican’s style is tailor-fit to negate the Filipino icon’s strengths.

“I think Marquez is a big test for Manny,” said Arum from Los Angeles in a recent telephone interview. “Manny is aware of that. Their first two fights were close. Manny has to be at his best to win over Marquez.”

Pacquiao and Marquez are set to slug it out at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 12. At stake will be Pacquiao’s WBO 147-pound title although the fighters agreed to face off at a catchweight of 144 considering Marquez is moving up from the lightweight division. Marquez is the reigning WBC 135-pound titlist. Continue reading “Arum wary of Marquez’ style” »

Pacquiao to choose network to air PPV

No Comments

MANILA, Philippines - Manny Pacquiao should have a say in choosing the network that will carry his next fight through pay-per-view.

“He’s the co-promoter so he needs to be part of the decision,” said Franklin Gacal, Pacquiao’s legal counsel.

Bob Arum of Top Rank said the other day the decision would come next week whether it’s HBO/Warner or Showtime/CBS.

Arum said there’s a lot of money involved, and from the $10 million that Showtime coughed up for the Shane Mosley fight last May, this one could go as high as $15 million.

Arum said it’s unbelievable how huge HBO and Showtime are willing to put in for the pay-per-view rights for Pacquiao’s next fight. Continue reading “Pacquiao to choose network to air PPV” »

Manny Pacquiao to face Mike Jones?

No Comments

Reports have been circulating that Bob Abrum and Top Rank Promotions are mulling the possibility of Mike Jones as an opponent for Manny Pacquiao for sometime in 2012. Both fighters are in the Top Rank stable, making the matchup easy to sign. The question swirling though is whether this would be a match worth making.

The 32 year Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KO’s) is riding a 14 fight winning streak going into his November 12th matchup with Juan Manuel Marquez (52-5-1, 38 KO’s) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Pac-Man will be defending his WBO welterweight bout in what will be his third encounter with Marquez. In May of 2008, the two fought to a draw at featherweight, and in March of 2008, Pacquiao battled to a split decision victory at super featherweight.

Why the long delay

No Comments

One thing I can’t understand is why did it take so long for Manny Pacquiao to agree to a rematch if promoter Bob Arum foresees the Trilogy with Juan Manuel Marquez  to be “a great fight.”
Remember that Marquez has been openly challenging  Pacquiao to a third match, saying that he was the actual victor  in their second match staged in Las Vegas in 2008.
The fight ended in a split decision win for Pacquiao.
On television, Pacquiao has been ignoring if not refusing the challenge outright. He said nobody will watch  a Pacquiao-Marquez fight,  possibly because he considers the Mexican fighter a has-been.
I don’t know what made him change his mind. Continue reading “Why the long delay” »

WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is tentatively scheduled to return this November in a voluntary defense of his title, with the most likely candidate for his opponent being former Contender participant Peter Manfredo Jr.

Where he goes after this however isn’t so clear.

Chavez Jr’s promoter Bob Arum speaking to Dan Rafael earlier today said:

“I think we’ll try to do Chavez against Miguel Cotto next spring in a big pay-per-view, but in the meantime we’re looking at those guys for Chavez in the fall,”

Arum’s plans are likely dependent on Cotto winning his yet to be confirmed December rematch against Antonio Margarito, and of course Chavez winning his November defense. Continue reading “Top Rank and the WBC divided over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr facing Sergio Martinez -Scott Heritage” »

ESPN’s Dan Rafael reports Bob Arum saying he can make the fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (43-0-1, 30 KOs) and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (37-0-1, 27 KOs) if Golden Boy wants to co-promote the event.

Here’s what Arum had to say: “We just need a willingness on Canelo’s part to do it. We’re ready to do that fight. But I don’t think they want the fight.”

That “they” that Arum speaks of is Alvarez’s promoter Golden Boy. Chavez is promoted by Top Rank.

Both companies have been at war over the years, refusing to co-promote.

Recently, Golden Boy founder Oscar De La Hoya buried the hatchet with Arum.

Doors to future co-promoted events have been opened, but does that mean they’ll happen?

Alvarez and Chavez are the two biggest Mexican sensations right now.

The longer they stay undefeated, the bigger the fight between the two will become. Continue reading “Bob Arum on Saul Alvarez vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr: “We’re Ready”” »

HBO may air Manny’s latest fight

No Comments

MANILA—Showtime has the inside track, but HBO may yet spring a surprise and make a solid bid to air the third fight of the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy on Nov. 12.

After all, a Pacquiao headliner, regardless of the opponent, is a guaranteed blockbuster as proven by the pound-for-pound king’s 147-pound clash with Shane Mosley on May 7.

Though perceived to be a mismatch after it was first announced, Pacquiao-Mosley raked in a lofty 1.3 million pay-per-view buys, worth about $71 million, for Showtime, which was given the broadcast rights by fight promoter Top Rank over longtime partner HBO.

As a result, Showtime enjoys the right of first refusal in Pacquiao-Marquez III.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports tweeted that Top Rank chief Bob Arum will meet with Showtime executives today to receive its initial offer. Continue reading “HBO may air Manny’s latest fight” »

In recent months, there has been reports of declining viewership from different websites for boxing articles especially if the topic is not about Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.

For avid boxing fans and industry critics, the declining readership trends are quite alarming. They predict the sport is headed for extinction if no changes are made to salvage whatever is left of the once-popular ancient sport.

And unless some changes are made now, its popularity will continue to decline as promoters are more concerned about financial survival than anything else.

In the last two years, boxing stories have revolved around the twice-scuttled Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight. For a writer who wish to generate more reads for his articles, he only has to write anything about these two guys and he gets the viewer’s attention.

The long-awaited Pacquiao vs. Mayweather fight is seen by many as a “shot in the arm” for this “dying sport” and there are quite a number of reasons why the fight needs to happen. Continue reading “Manny Pacquaio vs. Floyd Mayweather: 5 Reasons This Fight Needs to Happen” »

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao for several years has been the second biggest seller of pay-per-views in the United States behind rival Floyd Mayweather.

In November, Pacquiao fights Juan Manuel Marquez for the third time, and even though he is expected to win, most expect the fight itself to be a more interesting encounter than any of his recent bouts.
