In a recent interview with @ElieSeckbach Robert Garcia was asked what his 4 fight dream card would be. And this is what he came up with: Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Gennady Golovkin, Mikey Garcia vs Abner Mares, and Brandon Rios vs Ruslan Provodnikov.
➡️Fans, what would your 4 fight dream card be?
Miguel Cotto says Canelo and Chavez Jr are on his hit list.
"I’m enjoying the last victory and most of all waiting to see what happens in my career. At the moment I have not thought about anything. I’ll let the tide take its course and see what it brings," Cotto said.
"There are many names on the list, obviously Canelo and Chavez stick out, but we are waiting [to see what happens]. This is a business, my business and I will ensure the best opportunity for Miguel Cotto. But it is a fact, the Mexico-Puerto Rico rivalry can be rekindled."
Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez plans to return to the ring. His team is making plans for Martinez to fight a top 10 contender and once again become a world champion.
His promoter Lou DiBella had this to say: “Obviously June 7 was a terrible night in the ring for Sergio Martinez,” said the always outspoken DiBella. “But he says he can still do it and that he’s totally committed to winning back his title, so I stand behind him. He’s already come back to do great things after a stoppage loss to Antonio Margarito earlier in his career and he’s positive he can do it again. So we’re going to put him in with someone who can get him in line for a title shot and see what he can do. If he doesn’t look to be the same fighter anymore, I will be the first to admit it, but he deserves the chance to prove it was just an off-night in an otherwise stellar career.”
#BKB previously known as “Bare Knuckle Boxing” presents Vera vs Rosado. What do you fans think about @BVwarrior and @KingGabRosado taking their talents to #BKB?
I honestly think these are 2 of the toughest warriors at 160 in boxing. It’s a fight I would have loved to see on @HBOboxing or @ShoSports.
Who wins this fight in BKB? Personally, I give the edge to King Gab in BKB because of his power advantage.
Sod Kokietgym was rocked by an accidental headbutt shortly prior to the halfway point of the opening round, wobbling to the canvas from the blow. The 37-year old Thai challenger was able to rise to his feet, shaking off the blow and able to resume action.
What the challenger was ill-prepared for was what immediately followed, forgetting the golden rule of protecting yourself at all times.
Once determining that Kokietgym was fit to continue, referee Mark Nelson motioned the fighters to center ring and gestured his right hand to signal for action to resume. Kokietgym extended his right hand to touch gloves with Rigondeaux, but doing so while his left hand was down by his side.
Rigondeaux, proven far too skilled for any 122 lb. fighter on the planet when on a level playing field, took advantage of the moment, touching gloves with his challenger and immediately jumping into action. A right hook crashed on the exposed chin of Kokiegym, who was still trying to figure out what happened as a left hand slammed flush in his grill. The Thai southpaw collapsed to the canvas in a heap, this time in no position to continue.
The official time was 1:44 of round one.

Guillermo Rigondeaux ran through Sod Kokietgym (63-2-1, 28KO’s) in Macao, China today. Rigo retains his WBA and WBO Super Bantamweight titles.
It looks like Guillermo Rigondeaux heard the critics, and came out to prove a point today. HBO passed on this fight, and Rigo made a statement with his performance. I respect Rigo and his team for this. Who would you like to see Rigondeaux fight next? Photo by: Chris Farina.
The winner of @Brandon_Rios1 vs Diego Chaves could be Ruslan Provodnikov’s next opponent.
"We’re also talking about an opponent for Ruslan, and I would like to see the winner between Brandon Rios and Diego Chaves fight Ruslan in November," said Artie Pelullo (Ruslan’s Promoter). "We’ve discussed, that, Arum and I, so that would be another scenario. The winner of Rios-Chaves would be a great fight."
