 The term, ‘meteoric rise’, is an oft-used boxing idiom right up there with ‘bread-basket’ and ‘piston-like’ jab. The term, of course refers to those fighters whom come out of nowhere as they come crashing into bop-city’s spotlight. A term usually reserved for boxing’s wunderkinds who have pedigree written all over them but seem to burn out quickly once hitting the atmosphere. Not so with Mike Ayala. This bad little dude wasn’t going quietly into the night. (continue reading…)

On Mayweather vs. Mosley

“I see this fight as rather intriguing. I know a lot of people are leaning toward Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“Most of the time fights don’t live up to expectations. But fights like this, with Mosley and Mayweather, are highly anticipated. I truly believe that this fight here, these two guys will indeed live up to expectations, because whether they say it or not, it is about bragging rights. Yeah it’s about the money. Everyone wants the money, but for the guy who wins, it’s bragging rights.
