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.

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.

Purses and payouts from UFC 182

We at Pound4Pound clothing are surprised by the purses the athletes from UFC 182 collected. The fight between reigning Pound4Pound champ Jon “Bones” Jones vs Daniel  Cormier was billed as the biggest MMA fight of all time. Both combatants entered the ring with impressive records, Jones 20-1  and Cormier 15-0.  Jones lone loss was a first round DQ against Matt Hamill, due to an illegal downward elbow blow in a fight he was dominating and heavily favored.

Jones dominated the fight and controlled the action winning a 5 round UD. Cormier had his moments, but was unsuccessful with his take down attempts not allowing him to put his wrestling experience to use. In the Co-Main the always crowd pleasing  Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone won an uneventful three round UD vs Myles Jury.  The Cowboy was not at all happy with Jury’s decision to just survive and not engage. After the fight Cerrone refused to leave Vegas until UFC President Dana White secured him another fight. It just so turns out that Benson Henderson opponent for UFC fight night 59,  Eddie Alvarez was scratched due to the flu.  Cerrone did not hesitate to step in and and replace Alvares for the Jan 18th date.  This will make it two fights in two weeks for Donald Cerrone.

The gate at UFC 182 was surprisingly low, but PPV expectations are high. There was a respectable crowd of 11,575 in attendance which totaled 3.7 million dollars.  The fight was expected to draw a PPV buy rate of approximately 750,000 buys. At the post fight press conference White did not give a final number, however he did state that they were going to blow that number out of the water. The UFC also raised the pay-per -view price an additional $5.00 due to the popularity of the event.

Based upon the approximate numbers before expenses not including other avenues of revenue such as merchandise, site fees, etc, the event will rake in well  over $50,000,000.  That being said, below are the purses the fighters received from UFC182.  We at Pound4Pound Wear would like to hear you thoughts and comments in the below section in regards to the numbers each fighter received.

 

Main Card (Pay-per-view)
Jon Jones ( $500,000) def. Daniel Cormier ($90,000)

Pound4Pound Wear in tonight's boxing main event!

Tune in tonight at 10 pm est. to Fox Sports 1 or Fox Deportes to see live boxing action from Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego, C.A.  The main event features the always hard hitting Ed Paredes vs. slick Alan Sanchez.  Paredes comes into Sanchez’s backyard for a 10 round scheduled main event.  Paredes has an impressive record of 35-4-1 with 23 big wins coming by way of knockout.  In Paredes 40 fights he has only been stopped once inside the distance dating all the way back to Sept. 2007.  Sanchez also enters the ring with an  impressive record of 14-3-1 with 8 wins coming by way of knockout.  In Sanchez’s 18 fights he has never once touched the canvas.  On paper this looks to be a very intriguing fight between two guys that both have iron chins and are very well conditioned.  This fight should play out with the taller  6 ‘ 1″  Sanchez looking stay on the outside and box, controlling the fight with his jab against the shorter 5″ 10 ” Paredes.  On the other hand, Paredes will certainly be looking to make Sanchez his 24th knock out victim.  Paredes is a strong fighter with a huge right hand that can end the fight at anytime.  This is going to be a very fan friendly fight in which you will see the bull vs the matador scenario being played out.  Can Sanchez stay on the outside and stick his game plan for 10 full rounds, or will the man they call the Lion press the action and come up with the big knockout? Tune in tonight to find out and let us know your thoughts and predictions in the comment section below.

Pound4Pound Wear has sponsored Ed Paredes for this fight. Paredes will be entering the ring sporting the  pound4pound logo.  Paredes will be wearing a t-shirt and hat from the new pound4pound clothing  line which launched just two weeks ago.  Paredes t-shirt and hat along with many other items, styles, colors and accessories can be purchased at www.pound4poundwear.com.

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.

Terrence Crawford continues to shine!

Undefeated WBO lightweight champion Terrence Crawford 25-0 (17k Ko’s)  defended his belt a few moments ago with a 12 round boxing clinic against the always very tough and durable Ray Beltran. Beltran who is Manny Pacquaio’s main sparring partner came into the fight 29-6  (17 Ko’s), but certainly earned his shot at the title after many believed he was robbed last year when he went to the U.K. to fight Ricky Burns. Beltran was handed a draw in a fight most every boxing fan believe he won hands down. In that contest he battered Burns from pillar to post even breaking his jaw in the second round and dropping him hard in the eighth

In March of 2014 Terrence Crawford made the trip over the pond to the United Kingdom and handed Burns his third career loss by way of unanimous decision, in the meantime taking his strap back home to Omaha, Nebraska. Most sport fans these days know Omaha from Peyton Manning constantly yelling it at the line of scrimmage. However, there is certainly a new face to be associated with Omaha and his name is Terrence Crawford.  Century Link Stadium was packed with 11,000+ screaming fans with one special fan in attendance Mr. Omaha himself, Warren Buffet. However, Mr. Buffet who is a very knowledgeable fan of sport said, “Terrence is the new face of Omaha!”

Crawford dominated from the first round and swept all there scorecards 119-109,120-108, 119-109. Beltran came to fight and had his moments, but Crawford was just to much to handle.  Crawford dominated the fight with a sledge hammer like jab and switched to southpaw in round two confusing and frustrating Beltran. Beltran landed a few solid hard chopping punches in several rounds, but Crawford shook them off with his iron chin and came right back every time with dazzling shots that hurt Beltran.

Crawford with less than 100 amateur fights was a stand out amateur boxer beating current world champions Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia.  The hardcore boxing fans are buzzing about Crawford and already throwing his name around in the pound4pound list. Once the mainstream fan catches on, you will certainly see some big fights and this kid has the tools to make history.
