Rigondeaux, Viloria, Sanchez, Shiming Win In Macao

By Gonzo Glenn Gasket July 19th, 2014 All Boxing Results

The big action this weekend took place earlier today at Cotai Arena in Macao, China with WBA/WBO super bantam champ Guillermo Rigondeaux leading the way with a successful defense of his belts.

Hard-hitting Cuban southpaw Rigondeaux, 14-0 (9), didn't take long to reinforce his status as the sharpest boxer on the planet with a first round dismantling of Thailand's Sod "Kokiegym" Looknongyangtoy, 63-3-1 (28).

Looknongyangtoy came into the bout on the strength of 37 consecutive contests without a loss but a closer look at his CV reveals that the 37 year old had faced strictly pedestrain competition, a third of which didn't have winning records.

The two occasions in which Looknongyangtoy did step up, in WBO super bantam title bouts against Daniel Ponce De Leon, the Pechaboon based lefty was beaten on points in 2005 before being KO'd in one round in 2006.

And this qualifies Looknongyangtoy to somehow contend for a genuine world title?

This one looked like a complete mismatch on the way in and once the bell rang, the gulf in ability between Rigondeaux and Looknongyangtoy was very apparent.

Rigondeaux anticipated every movement the challenger made and avoided trouble with a formidable defense of pinpoint reflexes and footwork. More...

De La Hoya Promoting Rematch Between Mayweather Jr, Maidana

By Jose Espinoza July 17th, 2014 All Boxing Articles

Following the huge announcement that Floyd Mayweather Jr. finalized the contract for a rematch with Marcos “El Chino” Maidana, Golden Boy Promotions is confirmed to promote its 10th consecutive Mayweather bout.

There was speculation going into these contract negotiations that Mayweather Promotions would take over this bout and that the Barclays Center in Brooklyn would be used rather than the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas as the venue for this highly anticipated fight.

According to published reports, the main reason Golden Boy Promotions was selected is due to Mayweather Promotions possibly facing a tax investigation from the IRS.

In New York, the State Athletic Comimission requires a promotional company to submit tax documents. Instead, Mayweather opted to use Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions promotional licence in Las Vegas.

This is a stunning turnaround considering Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe did interviews following Richard Schaefer’s resignation as Golden Boy CEO on June 2 and reportedly mentioned that Mayweather would no longer work with Golden Boy.

It is also worth noting that Mayweather Promotions is not licensed to promote in Nevada. It is filling an application with the Nevada Athletic Commission on July 23 in Las Vegas but, due to time constraints, has opted to use Golden Boy.
