Who will be the King of the Welterweight Division?

Now the #MAYPAC is over and both Floyd Mayweather – the current #1 King of the Welterweight Divison – and Manny Pacquiao, the #2 in the 147 lb division, are both in the twilight of their boxing career, who do you think will take over this weight class?
Some names that are getting thrown around — and featured in this image below, include
Amir “King” Khan.
Danny “Swift” Garcia.
Kell “Special K” Brooks.
Marcos “El Chino” Maidana.
Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley
Keith “One Time” Thurman
Shawn “Showtime” Porter
Andre Berto
Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios.

Not on this collage, but someone who I think will take over boxing this coming decade, is 2012 US Olympian and undefeated welterweight boxer Errol Spence Jr. He has the skills as well as the power and Ring IQ to dominate this division and in turn dominate the world of Boxing.

#TrashTalk: Gary Russell Jr. vs Tevin Farmer

Super Featherweight Boxers Tevin Farmer with a record of 19 (4 KOs)-4-1 and Gary Russell Jr. with a record of 26 (15 KOs)-1-0 took to Instagram to trash talk each other.

Many in the boxing community feel that Russell Jr has been brought up very slowly and the moment he met real competition, i.e. Lomachenko, he fell short.

Farmer on the other hand, is a hardworking honest man who has bounced back remarkably well from a string of losses very early in his career and is now on the way up.

Gary Russell Jr say “It’s great for a fighter to have confidence in himself, but (stay in your lane) little homie, there’s levels to this Sh*t.”

To which Tevin Farmer responds “LOL! I’ve heard it a lot homeboy. I’ve been through it all and I’m ready for whoever right now and that’s a fact. There’s only one way to find out. Strap up.”

Burger King Said To Have Paid Floyd Mayweather A Million Dollars For Their Mascot Ringwalk

Wondering why Burger King Mascot took Justin Bieber’s place in Floyd Mayweather’s ring walk last Saturday in his fight vs Manny Pacquiao? There’s a reason for that. A million reasons actually. According to ESPN, Burger King paid Floyd Mayweather 1 Million $ just to have their Mascot walk behind Mayweather to the Ring — an approximately 30 second event. It’s ingenious because for 1 Million, Burger King got their mascot and brand in front of millions of pay-per-view viewers and potential future burger consumers around the world.

Several press agencies are reporting that 8 division world champion boxer Manny Pacquiao could face disciplinary action from the Nevada Atheletic Commission for failing to disclose a shoulder injury before his fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr this Saturday. Nevada Athletic Commission chairman Francisco Aguilar said Monday that the State Attorney General’s office is investigating why Pacquiao checked “No” a day before the fight on a commission questionnaire that asked if he had any injuries. Pacquiao could face a possible fine or suspension or both, for not answering the question accurately and truthfully. Manny went on to lose a unanimous decision to Mayweather in a lacklustre performance wherein he threw the lowest total punches in a 12 round fight since 2009 ( 6 years ago)

Manny Pacquiao Shoulder Injury Update

Manny Pacquiao is set to undergo surgery to repair a significant tear in his right shoulder rotor cuff. After losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in what was dubbed “Fight of the Century” Manny complained at the Post-fight Presser that he could not perform because of the shoulder injury that happened 4 week before the fight. Top Rank had not declared the injury even as late as fight night, so the Nevada Commission turned down Team Pacman’s request to get an anesthetic shot on the shoulder before the fight.
