Throughout the history of boxing, generations of family members have come together to watch the sweet science. Whether it was fathers and sons watching fights together or grandfathers buying tickets to take their grandsons to stadiums or arenas, the sport has always been a family affair.
Now, with top pay-per-view events being televised live nationwide, it's not uncommon for three generations (or more) to gather in the same room and share in the thrills of major prize fights.
This is certainly true with boxing's massive Mexican and Mexican-American fan bases and it's no accident that there's a major fight card on the Saturday of Mexican Independence Day weekend every year.
It's an ideal night for bringing these families together and this year is no different with "Star Power: Mayweather vs. Ortiz" Saturday, Sept. 17 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as well as Staples Center in Los Angeles.
This event will provide the kind of ultra high quality fight card from top to bottom that offers something for fans of every generation. More...

In a hard fought contest, recently dethroned WBC welter champion Andre Berto got right back on the horse by stopping IBF titlist Jan Zaveck at the Beau Rivage Casino in Biloxi, MS.
Berto answered any questions about his remaining abilities following a punishing loss to Victor Ortiz in April with a good performance against Slovenian hard man Zaveck.
The IBF champion had a good first round, winning a tactical battle by getting in close where the faster Berto's speed advantage could be lessened.
Zaveck had to take hard punches, particularly to the midsection, in order to gain this position but the proximity paid off late in the first frame when he rattled Berto with solid short hooks.
The action picked up in the second and rounds as Berto's quicker hands found the mark often but his lack of an effective defense allowed Zaveck to remain in the bout, scoring with crisp punches of his own and making for an exciting, pitched battle. More...
