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.

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.
