    --- Well, this is already the "general" boxing forum in a "world" sense that has seemingly incorporated Asian and Women's boxing.

    Chris Algieri (19-0 8 KOs) takes on WBO champ Ruslan Provodnikov this Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Algeri seems to be a scholar as he is a boxer, holding a Bachelors of Science in Health Care Management then a Masters from local New York schools and understands he's in a classic tall stylist vs squat slugger match up with a gameplan to stick and move and fight his way off the ropes.

    Could be a great fight or ugly or stupid depending on the actions of the ref and judges not to mention the hamhanded NY commish. I'm sure the style matchup will be pleasing if left unsullied by the officiating. Algieri is typical of modern boxing, he's not been very well tested, but he's not going against a great reigning champ but rather a newly crowned flavor of the month, a Siberian, the first ever to win a title me thinks.

    It's a topic worthy of a thread, but you seem to be economizing and streamlining the site, so I'm OK with that in that one of the weaknesses of the big websites is sheer magnitude of worthlessly stupid threads being dumped one on top of the other in endless streams. Not many to care for Algieri vs Provo, but they would be rated in the 98-99th percentile of all boxers who ever boxed and deserve some attention.

      Interesting to see Helenius on the podium aswell.

      Price does a silly dance at the end. Bermane posted this on his FB page earlier.

          Right, what about this bollocks that Andre Ward is ducking Kovalev? Source If he steps up to LHW for one fight and beats him [which IMHO he will easily] - then whats next for him at this weight? Duma getting her knickers in a twist about it trying to get the fight made. The Superman fight isn't an option because he's now with Haymon/Showtime so I think he's quite right to want to stay at SMW and get it on with the likes of Froch, Groves or the one thats been widely touted JCC Jr.

          What say y'all.....................?

            I got the idea from another boxing forum. It was very popular there, so I thought lets give it a try.

                --- At last reference, Mama's boy won't step up to lightheavy where he competed in the Olympics in spite of the biggest fights awaiting him there.

                Been a pro for 10 years and a mature 30 year old, so what's holding him back other than he also won't travel the two hour trip to Vegas for a big fight and otherwise stinks up Cali everytime he fights. He and his hometown refs gas the other fighters who have to wear handcuffs and leg irons in the ring. Way too light in the loafers for my taste, but perfect for modern day metro men and yummies for whom canned fights and canned lives go hand in hand.

                  There are no money fights for Ward full stop - he's never gonna get the larger cut of a big purse, and as soon as he gets knocked off the top of the tree, he's worthless.

                      --- No, I'm saying he's a canned light in the loafers fighter who won't actually fight as in the original definition at home and is scared to travel for bigger fights.

                      Bute always got slated for being a Montreal fighter, but he was making big money compared to Ward who would've made his biggest purse ever against Bute in Montreal. Mama said no, so he won't hardly fight period, even at home.

                        I've heard this expression before and methinks it has a double meaning too - and you maybe right. I've heard the rumours...............

                          Roy Jones has been getting exposed, in more ways than one, by his side-piece.

                            Porter vs Brook headed to Aug. 9

                            Despite Richard Schaefer’s resignation as Golden Boy Promotions CEO last week those at the company say it’s business as usual.

                            There are fights to arrange and cards to promote. President Oscar De La Hoya, fresh off his Sunday induction into the International Boxing Hall of Fame, is coming into the office regularly and working on events.

                            The company is promoting a June 21 Showtime tripleheader at the StubHub Center in Carson, California -- welterweight Robert Guerrero’s return against Yoshihiro Kamegai, Vasyl Lomachenko against Gary Russell Jr. for a vacant featherweight title and former welterweight titlist Devon Alexander against Jesus Soto Karass -- and also working on other events later in the summer.

                            One date in the works is tentatively an Aug. 9 Showtime card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

                            One of the fights ticketed for that show is welterweight titlist Shawn Porter’s mandatory defense against England’s Kell Brook. Golden Boy and Brook promoter Eddie Hearn reached an agreement and a purse bid scheduled for last week was canceled, according to the IBF and Golden Boy vice president and matchmaker Eric Gomez.

                            “We have a verbal agreement, but there are still some little issues,” Gomez told ESPN.com. “But we have enough of an agreement that (the IBF) was comfortable enough to call off the purse bid. The date we’re shooting for is Aug. 9 but that could change. We have to dot our I’s and cross our T’s but everything is moving in the right direction.”

                            Several other potential bouts have been mentioned as possibilities for the card. One of them is a fight between Daniel Jacobs of Brooklyn, New York and Jarrod Fletcher of Australia for a vacant secondary middleweight title (since Gennady Golovkin was made a “super champion” by an organization).

                            Junior welterweight champ Danny Garcia has also been mentioned for the card as has junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson. (No, they are not fighting each other.)

                            But Garcia could also wind up fighting in September instead, according to Gomez.

                            Golden Boy also has addressed the mandatory defense of lightweight titlist Omar Figueroa against Daniel Estrada. A purse bid had been scheduled for June 6 in Mexico City, but Gomez said the sides made a deal.

                            “We have a deal in place but no date just yet,” he said.
