That’s All For J'Leon Love
 
By William Trillo
Just as I thought it was going alright
I found out how wrong when I thought I was right
It’s always the same its just a shame That’s All...
…I could leave but I won’t go, though my heart might tell me so
I can’t feel a thing from my head down to my toes – Phil Collins


It was supposed to be a giant step forward for Mayweather Promotions on Saturday night but the truth is the ShoBox Triple header was one step forward and two steps back. The biggest step in the wrong direction came courtesy of Super Middleweight J'Leon Love (18-1, 10 KO’s) who was unceremoniously and brutally KO’d by journeyman Rogelio “Porky” Medina (33-6, 27 KO’s).

Truth be told the KO should not have come as any big surprise to anyone who might have been paying attention to Love’s recent action in the ring. In three of his last 5 fights Love was dropped by Gabriel Rosado before getting awarded a gift split decision. That decision was changed to a No Contest when Love’s drug test turned up dirty for diuretics.

  Rogelio Medina Scores Brutal Third-
Round Knockout Over J'Leon Love
 
Photo: Stephanie Trapp - SHOWTIME

Hard-hitting super middleweight Rogelio “Porky” Medina (33-6, 27 KOs), of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, registered one of the upsets of the year, knocking out previously unbeaten, world-ranked J’Leon Love (18-1, 10 KOs), of Inkster, Mich., in the third round of a Special Saturday presentation of ShoBox: The New Generation live on SHOWTIME.

After Love missed with a left land, the unheralded Medina countered with a vicious combination of punches to the chin and head that dropped Love face-first to the canvas. Love attempted to get up but referee Tony Weeks stepped in and stopped the fight at 39 seconds into the third round. It was the 123rd time since the series began 13 years ago that an unbeaten fighter suffered his first loss on ShoBox.

  Medina Smashes Love In Just 3 Rounds  
Rogelio Medina (now 33-6, 27 KO's) need just a single left hook to end the overhype that has been previously unbeaten J'Leon Love. Medina was not given much a chance in this fight, but that was mainly because the lack of attention paid towards Love after his less than thrilling fights. Love came out circling way too much from the opening round and it would only be a matter of time before the tree-trunk Medina would catch him. In round 3, a right hand backed Love to the corner. Next, a left hook, that could have parted the sea, sent Love straight to the canvas as his right leg started to seizure. Love tried to grab the bottom rope to get up, but he was out and could not continue. He should not continue his career in boxing as a matter of fact. Final time was :39. Love drops to 18-1-1 with 10 KO's.

Q & A: Ronald "The Thrill" Gavril

This Saturday night on a Showtime a fighter who should be familiar to Pound4Pound.com readers will make his national television. Super Middleweight Ronald Gavril (9-0, 7 KO's) will step into the spotlight on this Showtime Triple header. This will be America’s first good look at a fighter who caught the eye of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and has become one of the top men in the TMT stable.

It was only a few years ago that Romanian boxing manager Bill Cenan brought Gavril to the states and introduced him to Pound4Pound.com. Gavril who didn’t speak much English at the time made took a liking to our site and we have been good friends ever since then. Gavril immediately started sparring with some world class opposition from day one and showed the promise of a budding star.

When the decision went Floyd Mayweather’s way in the May fight between these two, Marcos Maidana was not the only one left aggrieved by the split decision. A lot of those boxing betting fans who had put their hard-earned cash on Maidana to cause an upset will have been just as miffed by a call that left many feeling Mayweather might have gotten away with it. Many though that it was a decision determined by the fact the latter was fighting in his adopted Las Vegas home, but despite all that the bookmakers think that the Pretty Boy will win again in the September rematch – with 1/7 odds showing just how sure they are of that.

Press Release Confirms: Mayweather CAN Read
 
By William Trillo
On Tuesday a press release was sent out to come to the defense of Floyd Mayweather Jr. The release stated that contrary to rumors flying around the internet that Mayweather could not read, he in fact can. A video was attached to the press release showing him reading a commercial for an upcoming college football game. After reading the statement and watching the video it is my opinion the press release may have done more harm than good.

Had it been me I would have sent out the statement from Fifty Cent that originally put out the challenge to Mayweather. It reads as follows:

"Floyd will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE: I will donate $750k to a charity of your choice, If you can read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping......expletive etc etc..."

... will you except my ALS/ESL CHALLENGE...?

EXCEPT?
