    Rigondeaux to fight in December

    In April, Guillermo Rigondeaux outpointed Nonito Donaire to unify junior featherweight world titles. Although it wasn't a crowd-pleasing performance, Rigondeaux's talent is undeniable.

    So when Top Rank chairman Bob Arum went to HBO to talk about his next fight -- and it was HBO that pressured Arum to make Rigondeaux-Donaire in the first place -- he was rather surprised when the network showed no interest in putting Rigondeaux back on.

    The quote Arum gave me on the topic was one of his all-time classics:

    "Every time I mention him, they throw up," Arum said of HBO executives.

    Well, apparently those execs can now keep their food down because they have changed course and agreed to feature Rigondeaux (12-0, 8 KOs) as a headliner. Arum said that the network is giving him a date for the two-time Cuban Olympic gold medalists' next fight before the end of the year, which the network has acknowledged.

    "He will definitely fight on HBO in December," Arum said.

    The date will be either Dec. 7 or Dec. 14, Arum said.

    "We're working on a good fight," Arum said, declining to name the prospective opponent. However, Arum did say it would not be Chris Avalos, a name floated recently as a possible Rigondeaux opponent but understandably declined by HBO.

    Arum hopes to line up a fight for junior welterweight titlist Khabib Allakhverdiev (19-0, 9 KOs), a Russian southpaw, in the co-feature. He was due to fight on HBO in March in the Mike Alvarado-Brandon Rios II co-feature before an injury knocked him off the show.

    rewatching the fight now, Floyd beat that 🤬 ass 4th round
    Yeah those bodyshots Floyd were landing were vicious at the end of round 4.

    Cats be having swollen eyes at the end of a Floyd fight saying "he really does not hit that hard", or "I did not feel his power".

    So why you aint bull rush the 🤬 every round then with no regard for defense?

    "Go in ya Kitchen, find the sharpest knife, and cut the 🤬 "

    And what yall think of cotto being trained by freddie roach?

    I thought that cuban trainer did pretty good with cotto


    Pedro Diaz trainer did good for cotto, I mean Cotto did way better than Canelo against Mayweather and damn it Roach needs a win.

    Yeah Pedro was great for Miguel Cotto that was the best .. "BOXING" and im pretty sure training that hes had in his career going into that Money fight..

    For the first 6 rounds of that Trout fight Cotto had it.. is till think it could have went either way or a draw..

    Cotto lost his edge years ago but is a more complete fighter..

    Margo psychologically damaged him as much as physically

    Trout beat Cotto easily

    According to @trboxing no announcement on Chavez-Vera weight limit. Spokesman said it will be determined on Friday at the weigh in. Unreal.

    What in the bluest of fuckfests? The 🤬 is this, 1808 where cats just scrap and weight is just some arbitrary factor? Is this a first in the modern era of boxing something like this has happened?

    Beristain breaks down Canelo's mistakes

    Canelo Alvarez suffered the first defeat of his career last Saturday against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a clinical performance that will likely be remembered as one of the unbeaten pound-for-pound king's most dominant victories.

    But through the eyes of an expert like Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain, Alvarez committed a series of crucial mistakes that helped take him out of the fight from the very beginning.

    From Alvarez coming in without suitable preparation to his lack of control against an opponent who dominated him in every aspect from start to finish, Beristain identified five keys that ultimately led to the 23-year-old's demise.

    1. He entered the ring with no clear strategy

    "When Mayweather came out of the corner to attack rather than wait on the punches, that was when [Alvarez's] strategy ended and there was no definite plan. Canelo was quickly frustrated and from the time when [Mayweather's punches] came at him right on target, he already didn't know what to do. [Mayweather] broke the attack strategy with his combination of left-right hooks and [Alvarez] couldn't adapt."

    2. Lack of defense

    "Given a minimally effective offense, perhaps it would have been good to show some defense to see if that way he could wait for a mistake by Mayweather and use it as has happened with other fighters. But because he was getting hammered from all sides, the fighter doesn't know what to do, he loses hope and everything becomes a madhouse."

    3. No control in the corner

    "In that group, there's no control. It's not like throwing more gasoline on the fire, but [Mayweather] ate him up. From the beginning it was thought that Mayweather's team was better and there ended up being no comparison. There [in Mayweather's corner], everybody knows their role, and here [in Alvarez's corner] they do whatever they want."

    4. He failed to take risks

    "Not only did we not see a change in strategy, we did not see any other kind of combination beyond what they have taught him, which is the left-right hook. Although, if [Alvarez] had gone at it in there with everything, if he had really put on the full press, maybe even he would have knocked [Mayweather] down, but we didn't know what could have happened. Because that's easy for [Mayweather], when they go looking for him, he puts you on the canvas like Ricky Hatton or Juan Manuel [Marquez]."

    5. Not prepared for Mayweather

    "The questions I had increased at the time, and if the opponent that you face is not like you had been told and it turns out you don't compete in defense, that you don't compete in speed, if you don't compete in effectiveness, they didn't tell you the truth. Given that [Alvarez's corner] created false hopes, that gave us this as a result. This is not about hitting the gloves and guard -- this is about seeing each factor that can change the fight for you."

    Nacho breaking down Canelo's amatuer like boxing skills.. If Canelo was smart he would dump his trainer.. and go with Nacho...

    i said the same 🤬 like 30 pages ago.....🤬 dont listen.
    matter of fact alot of 🤬 been saying it. i think the only person against everyone was @R.D.

    do the 🤬 still post in here since the fight?
    does he still use that one good punch canelo got on trout as a blueprint to why he would beat floyd?
