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.

Thoroughbred's pound4pound king!

So which horse is really the pound4pound greatest thoroughbred of all time?

We have compiled a list of horses which are no doubt the greatest horses of all time. However, only 1 can be the pound4pound king! American Pharoah Secretariat, Man O’ War, Seabiscuit, Phar Lap, Black Caviar, Ruffian, Frankel, Zenyatta, Citation, Seattle Slew.

American Pharoah went wire to wire in the Belmont Stakes making him the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years. Not since Affirmed crossed the wire in 1978 had this been done. He was a 2 time grade 1 winner of the Del Mar Furturity. Triple digit beyers in his 7 stake starts which were all wins. American Phorah estimated value in this day and age of racing is estimated to be at 50 million dollars. A sure pound4pound great!

Secretariat is the fastest horse on dirt from 1 3/16 to 1 5/8 miles in history. He won all 16 races by a landslide, never even having a photo finish. Most call Secretariat the Pound4Pound greatest horse of all time.

Man O’ War, Also known as “Big Red” Only career loss came when the starter opened the gates before the horse was in position. In 2006, Big Red was voted the greatest horse to ever live. Pound4Pound has been used in the same sentence as “Big Red”

Seabiscuit is the most undersized horse and was often asked to race carrying weight. That being said, he beat War Admiral by 4 lengths. A huge fan favorite and even had a movie produced his name. Most know the name but those who were lucky enough to see him race call him a Pound4Pound great.

Phar Lap Won 32 of 35 races including The Melbourne Cup which is Australia’s biggest race. Won 2 cox plates and holds a 14 race winning streak. Sadly, this horse was poisoned by American mobsters. This pound4pound contender unfortunately never had the chance to show the world how great he really was.

Black Caviar is known as the fastest sprinter ever. Black Caviar was never beaten and had tremendous cruising speed. A true master at 6 furlongs. For sure pound4pound great at a short distance.

Ruffian was certainly a pound4pound contender until she snapped her ankle at the starting gate after banging her left shoulder. After 8 hours of trying to save her life she was put to rest. Her final resting place is at Belmont Park in the infield with her nose pointed at the finish line.

Frankel was known as the sure shot at the track if there is ever is such a thing. He was unbeaten in 11 races and won most going away. His specialty was 7-8 furlongs and his split times were even faster than Secretariat. A sure poundpound contender.

Zenyatta won every race except for one. She won the Breeders Cup Classic at the ripe age of 5 against the boys! Pound4Pound greatest? Some say she is.

Citation was 27 for 29 as a 3 year old. Won the Jersey Stakes by 11 lengths in the midst of the Triple Crown. Easily blew away the field in the Pimlico Stake. In 1948 he won the Triple Crown. Surely is on the pound4pound list, maybe even #1!

Seattle Slew became the 10th Triple Crown winner and the 1st undefeated. Came back from a very serious injury to defeat Affirmed. Pound4Pound contender for certain!

So folks, there you have it! Since there can only be 1, #1 we at Pound4PoundWear are going to go with Secretariat! We would like to here your thoughts and comments in the below section.

PoundforPound Connor McGregor or Jose Aldo?

This is it folks, here we go again. On July 11, 2015 Connor McGregor will take on the defending UFC World Feathereight champion Jose Also at UFC 189 at the MGM GRAND ARENA IN Las Vegas, NV. There is a lot of buzz among MMA fans that the winner of this fight is the PoundforPound King. McGregor is a loud outspoken Irishman with an impressive 17-2 record who has not lost a fight in over 5 years. Aldo sports a very impressive 25-1 record with his lone loss coming in 2005 to Luciano Azevedo. There is a lot of bad blood between these two warriors and it has led to an unbelievable thirst for this fight. McGregor has disrespected Aldo every step of the way, verbally attacking Aldo every chance he has gotten. He has gone as far to even steal the champs belt at a press conference in Ireland. This fight has the makings of a war, however many question the level of opposition McGregor has faced. It will be interesting when the cage shuts, bell ring and each man realizes there is no more talking and it is time to get it on! Remember fight fans, there is only 1, #1. Who will be the Pound4Pound king of the Cage?

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!
