  Turkey Of The Year - 2020  
It's the time of the year that Pound4Pound starts the annual holiday awards season with our yearly Turkey Of The Year Award. Normally it goes to someone in boxing who has went far below the call of duty to earn the Golden Bird Trophy. But in this year that spun out of control and never got back on track it is not fair to anyone to call them out for whatever blunders they may have committed.

It was the year 2020 alone that takes the full blame for any and all the catastrophes we witnessed. Thanks a lot 2020. We are all counting the days to 2021. It can't come quickly enough.


Happy Thanksgiving to all. Stay safe!


  Jacobs vs. Rosado & Undercard
Press Conference Quotes
 
Daniel Jacobs – Brooklyn, New York – 36-3, 30 KOs – fights Gabe Rosado at Super-Middleweight
“I don’t agree with him, I think I beat him in every category, and I will show that on Friday night, plain and simple. My goal for taking this fight is to make him eat his words - there’s levels to this game and I’ll show I’m beyond this guy.

“There’s no easy fights in boxing, he’s a top 15 guy, I would say he’s a gatekeeper, but he’s a tough gatekeeper, he doesn’t lay down and if he goes down, he gets back up. A durable guy like Gabe serves as a great show, and the respect that I give every opponent is to prepare at 100 per cent to give my very best.

Trending: Refusing To Concede When Defeated
 
By William Trillo
No, conspiracy theorists, I am not going down “that” road. Instead allow me to take you down another rocky path. That being the one that ran through “The Bubble” in Las Vegas in the semi-main event on Saturday night.

Allow me to cut to the chase. Super Flyweight Andrew Moloney was unceremoniously screwed out of not only revenge but regaining his WBA World Super Flyweight Title when referee Russell Mora and The Nevada State Boxing Commission blundered. By not reversing the ruling by Mora that Moloney unintentionally headbutted Franco, causing immediate blinding swelling to his eye, they allowed Franco to keep his title by declaring a No Contest. As Bob Arum shouted from the rooftops after the fight, “This is an absolute disgrace.”

Press Conference Quotes
 
Eddie Hearn: "It's great to be back inside the bubble. It is unquestionably the best bubble in boxing. It is definitely the most expensive bubble in boxing! We do it properly. It is great to see all of the fighters here looking fit, well and healthy ahead of a huge night of boxing on Saturday back at Wembley Arena. A World Championship triple-header and a great opportunity for women's boxing to carry on progressing. We're live on Sky Sports in the UK and live across America on DAZN as well. The beauty of this card is although we have three women's World Title fights, we also have three really good men's fights. Domestic fights, young talent coming through, a big Super-Middleweight clash too."

Two-time World Heavyweight Champion Chris Byrd is back in the ring after a prolonged series of health challenges. Following his Hall of Fame worthy career at heavyweight, which included wins over Vitali Klitschko, Evander Holyfield, and David Tua, Byrd (47-5, 22 KOs) suffered from severe neuropathy and chronic pain from fighting far above his natural weight.

"Nobody wanted to fight me at middleweight, so I ate my weight up to heavyweight, And I paid for it. I went through 11 years of suffering. A few years ago, I couldn't even move my feet apart. The pain in my left leg was so bad that some days I just wanted to cut the whole thing off. I had to make drastic changes and choices in life to get where I am today," said Byrd.

Press Conference Quotes
 
Lewis Ritson – Forest Hall, England – 20-1, 12 KOs – fighting Miguel Vazquez for the WBA Intercontinental Super-Lightweight Title:

"We need to get past Vazquez, he's our main focus. We're not looking past Saturday. If we can get past him, and we're confident that we can, then we'll start looking at those other big names. I think I'll put an even better performance on behind closed doors with no pressure on my shoulders. When I first saw him at the first press conference, I thought he looked massive. Now he looks quite skinny, quite frail, to be fair, but we'll see on Saturday night what he comes to bring. We know that we'll bring our A-game.

If you are looking for a fighter who would fail every test The Marques of Queensbury has to offer, then you need look no further than featherweight Emanuel Navarrete (32-1, 27 KO’s). On the contrary, if you seek a fighter with an extensive and pedigreed amateur career, take a look at Ruben Villa (18-1, 5 KO’s). Now throw everything you know out with yesterday’s news. That’s right the awkward Navarrete manhandled Villa, dropped him twice and left The Bubble with the vacant World Boxing Organization World Feather Title in his possession.
