Thinking Out Loud
 
By William Trillo
As I finished watching Part 1 of HBO’s Muhammad Ali Documentary, “What’s My Name”, I couldn’t stop wondering why it was that everything Ali did was so polarizing and why all his actions both inside and outside the ring would influence and affect me in such a way that I couldn’t help but stand in awe of the man. Ali truly made a lasting impression on my life It also had me wondering why so many of today’s fighters who try to imitate “The Greatest”, (Mayweather Jr., Wilder, Classless Claressa, et. al.), make me wanna vomit.

Sorry, but I am not one to mince words.

  Team Korobov Planning Official
Protest Of Aleem Fight Outcome
 
The co-promoter behind WBC #14-rated middleweight Matvey Korobov says Team Korobov will file a protest to Virginia State officials over their fighter’s highly controversial majority draw last Saturday (May 11) against Virginia-based fighter Immanuwel Aleem.

Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing says Korobov is, at the very least, a victim of incompetent officiating after what seemed like a clear decision win for Korobov was initially announced as a majority decision victory and later changed to a majority draw, due a reported mistake in tabulating the scores.

  HBO Statement On The Passing
Of Hall of Famer Harold Lederman
 
“Harold Lederman had a lifelong love affair with the sport of boxing. Over the past fifty years he was universally respected and celebrated by the many people who make the sport what it is. Harold was happiest when seated ringside, studying the action and scoring the fight. When he joined HBO Sports in 1986 he added a new and critical component to live boxing coverage. Viewers embraced his unique style and his command of the rules while his broadcast colleagues relished his enthusiasm and boundless energy. He was an historian and walking rulebook. He always had time for you whether you were a heavyweight champion or just a spectator looking to say hello. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Eileen and daughters Julie and Iris. There isn’t a person in the sport who won’t miss our Harold Lederman.”

By William Trillo
Canelo Alvarez (52-1-2 35 KO’s) collected another 160 pound belt in Las Vegas with his unanimous decision victory over Danny Jacobs (35-3, 29 KO’s). Canelo looked sharp in this title unifier, quick offense and slick defense. Jacobs started a little slow but was able to get going and did his best to make a fight out of it. Both fighters predicted KO’s but neither man went down or was in danger at any moment. Final scores read 115-113 twice and 116-112 all in favor of Canelo who now holds the WBC WBA IBF & Ring Middleweight Titles.

Stay tuned for a full report of the nights proceedings from Daniel Cloutier.

Jacobs Is To Canelo As Salido Was To Lomachenko
 
By William Trillo
By coming in some three and a half pounds overweight at the day after weigh-in this morning Danny Jacobs has made it clear he wants to beat Canelo at all costs. At a price of some $250,000 per pound, (or more by some accounts), Jacobs has sacrificed a huge chunk of his purse in order to not only unify the 160 pound titles, but more importantly, beat Canelo.

After hearing about Jacobs tipping the scales over the limit Canelo basically said, “I don’t care what he weighs; I am going to kick his ass.”

  Miracle On Cinco De Mayo From The Miracle Man?  
By Raymundo Dioses
On March 4, 2019, International Boxing Federation champion Daniel ‘The Miracle Man’ Jacobs shared the red carpet at the Microsoft Theatre in downtown Los Angeles with his opponent, Canelo Alvarez, in advance of their May 4, 2019 middleweight title showdown.

The international press tour began in Jacobs’ home-state of New York, went South of the Border to Canelo’s home-country of Mexico, then landed and ended in the City of Angeles. Jacobs was all smiles at the press-fan friendly event and exuded the confidence that will be needed once he steps into the ring with Canelo, the WBA, WBC and Ring Magazine title holder in Las Vegas, Nevada.
