Mauricio Herrera goes in on Danny Garcia: “He should rematch Rod Salka, that was a nail biter! I haven’t given up, I’ll fight anyone. I want to fight Danny again, I’ll still be on top of him, I’m not gonna let him breath, I’m going to remind him any chance I get. I don’t care how long it takes, I’ll keep rubbing it in that I beat him.”
The sons of former heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman have sued Floyd Mayweather Jr., Mayweather Promotions and Showtime in Clark County District Court regarding the 31 minute sparring sessions at Mayweather’s gym that were a part of the “All Access” series.
Hasim Rahman Jr., 23, and Sharif Rahman, 18, sued for battery, tortious assault, false imprisonment, negligent hiring, training, supervision and retention and unjust enrichment.
"Guys fight to the death," a grinning Mayweather says during All Access. "It’s not right, but it’s dog house rules."
The suit accuses the Mayweather Boxing Club of forcing them to spar 31 minutes straight and not having the proper license to allow amateurs to spar.
"Defendant Mayweather knowingly misrepresented facts while testifying before the Nevada State Athletic Commission," the suit reads. "Defendant Mayweather falsely testified that Hasim’s 31-minute fight did not happen as aired, and that the fighters took several breaks. Defendant Mayweather also testified to the effect that the ‘All Access’ program is heavily edited to show footage the way he and Showtime want." -Yahoo Sports.
WBC Featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (57-8, 48KOs) will be at the #StubHub center tomorrow night to support Marco Antonio Rubio in his fight against Gennady Golovkin.
Gonzalez will also be in attendance to study and look at Nonito Donaire’s performance. Jhonny Gonzalez has publicly expressed his desire to fight Nonito Donaire next.
It looks like Manny Pacquiao will be looking to add a KO to his record when he takes on Chris Algieri.
“We are scheduled to fight for 12 rounds but that’s just too long,” Pacquiao said via sports.tempo.com.ph. “Six rounds (or less) will be enough.”
Pacquiao vs Algieri will be aired live November 22nd on @HBOboxing PPV.
I think the world just wants to see @TeamMikeyGarcia back in the ring. I don’t care what promoter, or network he’s on.
Garcia has everything it takes to become one of the sport’s top p4p fighters. And at Jr Welterweight, the great match ups for Garcia are endless! We wish Mikey and his team the best during their legal battle with Top Rank. #FreeMikeyGarcia.
The undefeated Mikey Garcia (34-0, 28KOs) was once on the brink of making everyone’s top 10 P4P list. But due to legal issues with his promoter @TRboxing, he’s been inactive since January 14th of this year. And it doesn’t look like he’ll be stepping in the ring anytime soon.
“That’s still needs to be sorted out. The attorneys on both sides, on Top Rank’s side and my side, they’re the ones that are handling that. These things just take a lot of time. You know, the court system takes time. That’s all that I can say. We’ve been trying to maybe move forward with the court case and everything,” said Garcia.
“But it’s just a very, very slow process. There’s a lot of paperwork that goes along with that. But we hope to find something and a way to resolve this so that we can get back into the ring as soon as possible. But there is no date in sight, as of yet, so that’s what’s keeping me out of the ring right now.”

The WBO has declared Orlando “Siri” Salido as its new 130 lb Champion now that Mikey Garcia will be moving up to Jr Welterweight.
“We’ve been thinking about going up in weight a lot. You know, a year ago, we didn’t even make the featherweight divison. So my body has been definitely, definitely growing. I’ve been training and training just to stay in shape but I can no longer make the 130-pound division. So we had been planning to move up in weight class when we do return,” said Garcia.
“We don’t have any plans yet but I’ve told the WBO that when I do return, that I’d like to test it out. I would maybe want to get a fight between 135 and 140, maybe get a catchweight to see how I feel for that division. Maybe I’d fight fight at 138 and see how that works out. Maybe I can come back down to 135 if I feel that I can make it. But as it stands right now, I don’t think that I can make it to 135. I think that maybe a catchweight of 137 or 138 would work for a fight.”
“That really just made it very hard to make it back to 130. Right now, I’m walking around at 156, but I was as high as 161. So it’s just very, very hard for me to say right now what weight class I’m going to be competing in officially but I do want to come back at a catchweight between 135 and 140 and see how I feel.”

"El Maestro" Mauricio Herrera (21-4, 7KOs) will defend his interim WBO Jr Welterweight title against Jose Benavidez Jr (21-0, 15KOs) on December 13th on @HBOboxing.
Herrera vs Benavidez will be on the undercard of Tim Bradley Jr vs Diego Chavez at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, NV.
Every champion at Middleweight has made an excuse as to why GGG doesn’t deserve to fight them. Guys like Sergio Martinez, Kid Chocolate, and even Cotto’s manager have all used the excuse that GGG is not “that big” of a name or draw.
The only guy who hasn’t put up an excuse as to a future fight with #GGG is @CaneloPower. After his press conference with @HBOboxing a couple of weeks ago, Canelo said that he and GGG have trained together and called him “a friend”. But Canelo also said, that if the fight presents itself that it’s a fight he’d take. You have to respect that about the 24 year old Canelo.
Canelo is expected to challenge @MiguelCottoReal for his @WBCboxing middleweight title next year during 5 de Mayo weekend. If he gets past Cotto, I just don’t see him ducking GGG. That’s just not how Canelo is built.

"What I feel, and I think what’s happening now is people are starting to talk not about Pacquiao-Mayweather,” De La Hoya said recently during a question-and-answer session with Alvarez at HBO’s Manhattan headquarters. “They’re now starting to talk about Cotto-Canelo. It’s not the second-best fight to be made. Now it’s becoming the best fight to be made. So something’s happening.”
De La Hoya, whose company promotes Alvarez, gets the sense fight fans are beyond tired of discussing Mayweather-Pacquiao because they’re resigned to the long-discussed mega-fight never occuring.
“People are getting tired,” De La Hoya said. “People want to see it, and they can’t see it. They’re getting tired of just asking and asking, whereas here, with Cotto and Canelo, if you ask you’re going to get it because both fighters want it.”
I’m “It’s a natural fight,” Alvarez said. “It’s a good fight. It’s a fight that the fans want to see – just a natural. It’s got to get made. I feel that everybody would be very happy and emotional about that fight.” -BoxingSene.com
Floyd Mayweather has verbally been going off on a lot of people lately: Leonard Ellerbe, Mayweather Sr., Manny Pacquiao, and now Oscar De La Hoya. It almost seems as if Floyd is paranoid and trying to stay relevant by social media now since fans are slowly ‘not caring’ about his boxing career.
Add to the fact that Oscar De La Hoya and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will be taking back 5 de Mayo weekend in 2015, and that leaves us with a very insecure Floyd Mayweather.
"Oscar De La Hoya has always been disloyal; very disloyal. He was very disloyal to Richard Schaefer. Richard Schaefer built that company from the ground up. I don’t have anything against Eric Gomez at all, but De La Hoya is a piece of sh*t. Oscar is a snake. Stephen Espinoza, he’s been more than fair. It gets no bigger than Showtime…if they feel like they can compete, well then let’s see," Mayweather told Fighthype.com.
"Like I said before, Oscar’s a snake. Any fighter that’s in boxing right now, keep a close eye on Oscar. He’s a snake. If you want to be treated fair, come over to Mayweather Promotions."
Now, Floyd just makes no sense. @HBOboxing built Mayweather’s career from the ground up. They made him a PPV star, showcased him on 24/7 yet Mayweather left to @ShoSports. So is Mayweather a snake, disloyal, and a piece of sh*t too? Maybe, I guess.
