Mayweather last match set against Andre Berto

Pound-for-pound Floyd Mayweather, plans to finish his boxing career with last fight against Andre Berto. Its been 4 months since the disappointing fight against Manny Pacquiao who actually wanted a rematch. Some thought it would not be enough. There has been debate on who Mayweather’s next contender would be.

Floyd Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs), will be fighting at the MGM Grand for the 12th consecutive time, against surprise pick Andre Berto. Some are happy, some are disappointed. Many thought his last fight would be aired on CBS to give back to the fans, which is now known to be incorrect.  It will be on showtime PPV (8 p.m. ET), and will be the final fight of his brilliant, 19-year career. Time will tell if this was the right move more not.

Contender or Pretender?

With Jose Aldo pulling out of his scheduled July showdown against Conor McGregor due to a cracked rib, fight fans will have to remain patient to find out if the brash, loud mouth and arrogant Irishman is really the “Notorious One”. Bad blood has has fueled near riots at press conferences around the globe and McGregor has gone as far as snatching the belt from the champs hands. It looks like UFC fanatics and fight fans around the world will just have to wait until the fight is rescheduled for sometime in October.

McGregor who is either loved or hated by all is not about to sit on the sidelines. In steps Chad Mendes who sports an impressive record of 17-2, with his only defeats handed to him by the man they call “Scarface”, Jose Aldo. On July 11 UFC189 will answer many questions. The one question that all sports fans want to know is Conor McGregor a contender or pretender?

Lennox Allen impresses, now 18-0 (11 Ko's)

Pound4Pound Wear sponsored fighter Lennox  “2 Sharpe” Allen improved to 18-0 (11 Ko’s) knocking out Kojo Issah 14-2-1 (7 Ko’s) in impressive fashion last night at B.B. King in Times Square, NYC.  Kojo had an impressive record entering the fight with only one loss in 16 bouts. In the first round both fighters came out cautious feeling each other out. Kojo was cagey and crafty sometimes dangerous leading with his head, but Allen got the better of the exchanges. In the second round Allen started pounding Kojo to the body and landing.  Allen ripped two hard body shots that landed clean to Kojo’s ribs dropping him instantly. Kojo was unable to meet the 10 count ending the bout 51 seconds into round 2.

Allen remains undefeated and is looking to have a breakout year after an injury and opponent issues had him sidelined in 2014.  This win should put Allen in the top 10 ranking at super middleweight in the various “alphabet” organizations.  ” We look to get Allen right back in the ring in the next  month or two so he can get a few more rounds under his belt. After that we will be looking for a bigger fight against any one of the champions at 168 or top contenders”, stated Steven Heid manager to Allen. “This is our year, I felt great and was happy to be back in the square circle. I knew I hurt him as soon as I connected. I heard him wince and he went down immediately. This is the year I become world champion” stated Allen.

LET'S GO TO THE SCORECARDS, NO DON'T!

Pound4Pound Wear the maker of athletic sports apparel and accessories was the official sponsor of Tyson Cave in his WBA WORLD SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT which took place Friday night,  December  11, 2014 vs Oscar Escandon.  The bout was the co-main event live on ESPN2 from Pechanga Resort & Casino, Temecula, California, USA.  According to the judges scorecards, Tyson who is referred to as “Prince of Hali” dropped a SD, the scores were as follow : Raul Caiz Jr 111-117 | judge: Tony Crebs 113-115 | judge: Max DeLuca 115-113.  After the decision was announced, Teddy Atlas the highly respected boxing analyst who was also calling the fight  went on an epic rant and referred to the judges decision as robbery and corruption in boxing! The video can be seen at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZDjvGm0OVg   ESPN2 home viewers scored the fight in favor of Cave 120-108 sweeping all 12 rounds.

In other action over on HBO Saturday night, former two division title holder Tim Bradley clearly looked like he did what he needed to do in an action filled fight against the game Diego Chaves.  However, when Michael Buffer read the scorecards, the approx 2,500 in attendance were dumbfounded.  The official scores read, Judge Burt Clements scored it 115-113 for Bradley, Julie Lederman surprisingly had it 116-112 for Chaves and Craig Metcalfe had it 114-114. ESPN.com had it for Bradley 119-109.  Lederman’s father, HBO unofficial judge Harold Lederman, had it 116-112 for Bradley.

On the same card the co-main event  featured, Mauricio Herrera vs Jose Benavidez  for the WBA WORLD LIGHT WELTERWEIGHT TITLE.  It has appeared that Herrera had dominated the fight and did all he needed to retain his title, however the only 3 scores that counted were those of the three judges which cost Herrera his world title along with what may have been millions in purses. Max DeLuca and Eric Cheek scored the bout it 116-112 for Benavidez, while the third judge, the normally reliable Dave Moretti of Las Vegas had it 117-111 for Benavidez. Yahoo Sports scored it 117-111 for Herrera, as did Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Dan Rafael of ESPN.com and Steve Kim of UCN Live.com.  Herrera clearly landed the harder cleaner shots, the fans were in shock when the official decision was rendered. “I don’t understand anymore,” said Top Rank chairman Bob Arum, Bradley’s promoter, adding that he thought  the scoring was as bad as the scoring that gave Bradley a hugely controversial split-decision win against Manny Pacquiao in their first fight.

At Pound4Pound we sponsor many athletes in many different sports, but  Founder Steven Heid who is also a successful boxing manager has a huge love for the sport and likes to give back to the fighters.  “A sport I love so much that I have grown up watching with my father since the age of 7 is in serious jeopardy.  These decisions are horrendous, three robbery’s in one night.  If you walked into a bank with a gun and stole the cash, you would be locked up so why should this be any different?  It is time for change, it is time for a national commission.  These fighters train there butts off and fight to survive, they fight for their life and they fight for their family.  Being a professional boxer is not like being a MLB pitcher, if you have a bad day on the mound you go home and shake it off.  If you have a bad day in the square circle, as horrible as it sounds the reality is you may never go home. To see something like this happen makes me sick to my stomach. Along with the millions of dollars gambled on boxing events each year, these so called judges are gambling with peoples lives.  A federal investigation needs to be seriously considered.  Our sport is dying, who wants to watch a kid win 12 rounds decisively and lose the fight?  It’s a joke, no wonder why boxing the sport I love so much is on the decline while MMA has become the fastest growing sport in the world. In addition to a national commission there should be a discussion about health coverage and benefits. The NFL, NBA and MLB all have associations looking out for their athletes best interest.  Just recently the NFL agreed to pay a 765 million dollar settlement related to concusssions to 18,000 former players.  Boxers fight for peanuts compared to other athletes. The reality is that in boxing 1% of the fighters make 99% of the money.  Most of these fighters are coming off the streets trying to support their family and make a living, for most of them this is their full time job and all they know.  To see them get robbed like this is unacceptable, it is time for change!.” said Heid.

Tyson Cave fight will be for WBA World Title!

Pound4Pound Wear the maker of  men and women’s sports apparel is happy to announce a partnership with Tyson “Prince of Hali” Cave.

Tyson Cave is coming off a big win against the highly touted Sebastian Gauthier, which has now put in him in line to face hard hitting Columbian, Oscar Escandon.  The fight will take place Thursday night, Decemeber 11 live on ESPN2 from Temecula, California. The thirteen fight card is stacked with great talent and features; Austin Trout, Antonio Tarver; Edwin Rodrigquez, Sergio Mora, Marcus Browne, Terrell Gausha, Gerald Washington, Rico Ramos and several other high profile names. However, there is no question the main event tops them all, as Tyson Cave will be fighting for the WBA BANTAMWEIGHT WORLD TITLE.

Cave comes into the fight sporting a very impressive 24-2 (8Ko) record and hails from Halifax, Canada which he proudly represents. Escandons record is equally impressive at 23-1 (16Ko’s) and fights out of Ibague, Columbia. Escandon eliminated Cave from the 2004 Olympic trials, a fight Cave and many ringside observers believe he won.  The Columbian went on to fight in Athens, however did not medal.

This is a fight the fans want to see and and no doubt the biggest fight of both participants career.  The winner of this fight will go down in history as world champion which will lead to even bigger fights, along with bigger paydays.  Tyson Cave loves his hometown of Halifax, Canada thus sporting the name “Prince of Hali”.  There is no bigger opportunity for Tyson to put Halifax back on the map in terms of boxing history.  Halifax, Canada is not known as a boxing hot spot, however it did produce George “Little Chocolate” Dixon who stood at just 5’3  and weighed 87 pounds. Dixon in 1888 became the first African American to win a world title in any weight class. Other notable fighters from Halifax Canada include Kirk Johnson who lost in his two world title fights to John Ruiz and Vitali Klitschko, as well as Sam Langford who many believe was one of the best heavyweights in boxing history to never win a world title.  Langford beat Joe Gans and went 15 rounds with Jack Johnson while he weighed just 71 kg to Johnsons 84 kg.

Tune in Dec 11 to see an amazing night of boxing where the stakes are high, history remains in the balance and the book will soon be written

Pound4Pound Wear will be represented in Tyson’s corner and wishes him the best of luck in his world title bout!

Tune in tonight to find out and let us know your thoughts and predictions in the comment section below.

Pound4Pound vs. Pound4Pound ?

The sports world is licking their chops to see the best vs. the best, there can only be one number one!  If I stop right there and don’t continue another sentence even the casual  sports fan will know who I am referring to. Yes, you guessed Floyd “Money” Mayweather vs Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio.  Money  is currently 47-0 (26 Ko’s) while Pac is 57-5  (38 Ko’s). Pacman has reeled off three straight wins since his devastating KO loss to Juan Manuel Marques against top contenders Rios, Bradley (previous loss SD) and Algeri. Floyd on the other hand has an unblemished record.  Many believe the only competitive fight of his career was his first bout with the hard hitting Marcos Maidana. In their rematch Floyd dominated the fight winning an easy 12 round unamimous decision.

So what now? Social media and the internet has been exploding for years hoping for this fight.  In the past both teams have had disagreements in regards to Olympic style drug testing and purse splits. However, the fight seems more ripe than ever. There are reports that a group out of the United Arab Emirates has offered a guaranteed purse totaling more than 200 million dollars.  Pacman has been calling Floyd out for years, but since his upset loss to Marquez, Floyd down plays the big fight and constantly mocks Manny.

If Floyd decides to fight Manny next he will certainly make the most amount of money any boxer or athlete has ever made for a single event. Floyd’s career earnings have been reported to exceed 420 million dollar making him the highest paid athlete in sports.  “This is a fight that needs to happen, if Floyd does not accept the fight he will be labeled as a fighter that refused to fight the best. He needs this fight for his legacy.” stated, boxing manager Steven Heid.

Sources have told me this fight is in negotiation and will most likely happen in May on Showtime. If this is true, this will go down as a historic event that can and will be compared to fights such as The Ali vs Frazier, “Rumble In The Jungle.”  At a time when boxing is struggling and losing viewers to other sporting events such as MMA, if this fight should happen it will certainly give the sport a much needed shot in the arm.
