    I give Broner all the credit in the world for finessing his way to the few millions he has made.

    This mediocre nigga actually convinced many in the boxing world that he was really good and deserved all the attention he is getting.

    He hustled the game and I can't hate on that. The nigga has done such a great job that folks still believe that if he dedicated himself he could still be that nigga after Floyd. LLS

    Lomachenko: Salido is a Step Back, But If The Promoters Agree...

    By Vadim Pushkin

    WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs) is not overly interested in a rematch with Orlando Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs).

    Salido is the only fighter to hold a victory over the two-time Olympic gold medal winner.


    In his second pro fight, Lomachenko lost a controversial twelve round split decision to Salido in March of 2014.

    Since that defeat, Lomachenko has dominated his opposition - with wins over four current or former world champions - Gary Russell Jr., Roman Martinez, Nicholas Walters and Jason Sosa.

    Salido on the other hand has been involved in several brutal wars - and he's 0-1-2 in his last three fights - with his last official win taking place in September of 2014.

    He's been inactive since June of 2015 - but the Mexican brawler is taking a stay-busy fight on May 27th in Mexico, against Amphon Suriyo.


    Lomachenko wants to capture more world titles - either at super featherweight or moving up to purse fights with lightweight champions Mikey Garcia and Terry Flanagan.

    In his opinion, facing Salido at this point is a step back - but if the promoters reach an agreement and that's the opponent presented to him, then Lomachenko is ready for action.

    "For me as a boxer, Salido is a step backwards. I'm always looking for something new, something interesting and useful for my career. Why waste time just to close up some issues from the past. After the fight between me and him, everything has become very clear [on where we both stand]. But if the promoters agree, I will compete. While I cannot say anything yet about my next fight, I think that it will be held in the late summer," Lomachenko told Gregory Paly.

    In his last fight, back in April, Lomachenko dominated and stopped Sosa. Lomachenko praised Sosa for showing heart in the fight, which the boxer from Ukraine believes was lacking from Walters, who quit during their showdown last November.

    "There was no surprise about the fight. He is a good boxer, but not top-class.. perhaps Walters in this regard was interesting. Although, as a warrior, Sosa proved to be better here [than Walters], because his corner asked to stop the fight, and he refused. Sosa wanted to continue," Lomachenko said.

    Gary Russell Jr. Firm on Goals: Unifications, Lomachenko - Twice

    By Lyle Fitzsimmons, photo by Ryan Greene

    Gary Russell Jr. admires Bernard Hopkins.

    But by no means does he want to be Bernard Hopkins.

    Even as a Saturday night defense against Oscar Escandon draws nearer, the WBC’s featherweight title-holder is already – at age 28 – pondering his career’s final stages.

    “I plan on finishing this career within the next three years or so,” he told BoxingScene. “That’s about it. Thirty-one, maybe, tops. I’ll be 29 next month. We definitely want to start picking up the action so we can be able to sit back and live off the fruits of my labor.”

    Russell was four months old when Hopkins began a four-decade run back in 1988 and last fought in April 2016, about eight months before “The Alien’s” inglorious swan song – at age 51 – against Joe Smith Jr.

    And though both he and the former two-division champ have nurtured a tidy nest egg with the proceeds of their ring work, the younger man doesn’t feel the need to labor another 20 years before spending it.

    “We’ve been very, very strategic with business outside of boxing. Boxing is what I do, it’s not who I am as an individual,” Russell said. “We just use boxing as a vehicle to get us close to what we want. We’ve made very, very wise business decisions outside of boxing. We’re good.”

    But if you think the executive has edged out the competitor, here’s a suggestion:

    Forget it.

    In fact, all that’s needed to get Russell’s fire burning is the mention of a certain Ukrainian.

    “I would love to unify against the other world champions (at featherweight),” he said, “and before the end of my career I would definitely like to compete against Mr. Lomachenko twice.”

    Lest anyone forget, a then-.500 fighter named Vasyl Lomachenko – fresh off a loss to Orlando Salido barely three months earlier – won eight of 12 rounds on a pair of scorecards against while capturing the WBO’s vacant 126-pound title against Russell in June 2014.


    He defended three times before leaping to 130 and climbing to the coveted single digits on many respected pound-for-pound rankings lists. Meanwhile, the loss drove Russell to the sport’s backwoods in Shelton, Washington before he bounced back for a WBC title win against Jhonny Gonzalez.

    The Gonzalez win resurrected public perception of Russell, elevated him to No. 2 on Ring Magazine’s featherweight list and led nicely into a second-round thrashing of Patrick Hyland in a title defense.

    But the blemish on a 28-fight resume remains an itch the Washington, D.C. can’t wait to scratch.

    “That’s definitely the one that I want to get done,” he said. “The only reason why Lomachenko is even mentioned – and I feel as though he’s put somewhat on a pedestal in his professional career as of now – was based upon the fact that he competed against Mr. Gary Russell Jr.

    “He lost to Salido. No one knew who he was coming into the professional game. I can’t take away from what he accomplished in the amateurs – by him being an Olympian, etc. – but as far as him making his name known as a professional it was not a factor until he competed against Gary Russell Jr.”


    First things first, though, Escandon awaits.

    The 32-year-old Colombian has ascended to the ever-dubious “interim” championship level at both 122 and 126 pounds, in spite of a 3-2 record in his last five fights since a 22-0 start.

    He rose from the floor to erase Robinson Castellanos in his most recent outing 14 months ago, and arrives to the MGM National Harbor this weekend in possession of Russell’s undivided attention.

    “He’s a complete competitor. He’s going to push himself physically to the limit,” the champion said. “He’s rough. He’s rugged. He’s going to have a level of endurance. He’s going to attempt to bully his way through this fight and try to make it an ugly fight as much as he possibly can.”

    But the latter tactic, according to Russell anyway, could be his undoing.

    “He’s going to put himself in the situation where he’ll be much more susceptible to get hit with clean, flush, hard shots,” he said. “When you have these straightforward guys you don’t have to look for your shots. They’re running right into you.

    “Sometimes you throw shots without the intent of them being hard but just his forward momentum makes your shot even harder than what you really expected to make it.”

    Errol Spence Laughs at Jeff Lacy Comparisons From Team Brook

    Unbeaten welterweight contender Errol Spence (21-0, 18 KOs) has laughed off some of the verbal jabs being fired by IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook and his team members.

    Spence, the mandatory challenger under the IBF, will finally get his chance to capture a world title - with the contest taking place in very hostile territory.

    Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) vs. Spence takes place on May 27th in the champion's home venue, at Bramall Lane in Sheffield. Showtime will televise the fight in the United States and Sky Sports Box Office will handle things in the UK.

    There have been comparisons made, from the other side, that Spence could suffer the same fate as another United States Olympian who came over to the UK more than a decade ago, Jeff Lacy.

    In 2006, Lacy was undefeated and viewed as the next big thing - but he was dominated by huge underdog Joe Calzaghe.

    Spence is not bothered by any of the negative comments being made about him.

    “Just how I’m built. I’m a guy who’s never too high, never too low, I’m right in the middle. Not a lot of stuff excites me, not a lot of stuff gets me going. I see a lot of stuff, Errol Spence is going to be this or he can’t do this, he’s Jeff Lacy. It doesn’t get to me. I’m never too high, never too low, that’s my motto, just right in the middle," Spence said.

    “Everyone got an opinion, that’s their opinion at the end of the day. I know what I’m capable of, I know I can fight, I know who I am, I’m not worried about what another person says about me at all."

    Spence is going to switch a few things up for this fight. He plans to show some new moves from his arsenal.

    “There are a couple of things I’m going to do that people aren’t expecting. A lot of times in my fights there are a lot of things I don’t have to do or don’t have to show, because I don’t have to. There’s a lot of things I do in sparring that I don’t show in the ring because I don’t have to do it," Spence said.

    "There are a lot of different things I am going to show, I’m going to use. There are certain things we work on for him, but we are basically working on ourselves, trying to correct everything we’re doing wrong."

    Errol spence sounds like Fleece Johnson.

    50-50 fight but i edge it to Spence. Don't like the fact Brook took that GGG fight. Tells me he went into cash out mode. Spence's hunger and vicious bodywork will see him get the nod i believe.

    Or the nigga thought he could actually pull off the upset? Lol Tall task no doubt, but I never seen Floyd in a hurry to fight GGG. Would Floyd have been "cashing out" if he fought GGG? Some niggas is just more confident in themselves and their abilities. We will see soon enough what Brook has left.

    WAR BROOK!!!

    I think Brook did a little of both cashing out and seeing if he was good enough to pull off an upset.

    Brook believes he's good which he should but he also took that fight to try and show up Khan and make some money.

    It was a great business move he lost but looked better than Khan did vs Canelo and on top of that he didn't lose his belt or status at 147.

    I'm picking Spence fight is only close if Brook can slow the pace down. If Brook can't tie Spence up and has to move constantly it could get ugly for him later in the fight.

    Brook has a damn good straight right with Spence being a southpaw could possibly land well. If it doesn't Brook is getting crushed.
