  Statement From Golden Boy Promotions
On Passing Of Hall Of Famer Don Chargin
 
Today, the sport of boxing lost a legend.

For decades, "War a Week" Don Chargin was universally known as a titan of promoting and matchmaking. His events at the Olympic Auditorium were not to be missed, and along with his wife, Lorraine, he was the linchpin of boxing in California and beyond.

But to those of us at Golden Boy Promotions, he was so much more. He was a partner. He was a mentor. And he was a friend. To say Don will be missed doesn't come close to explaining the sadness we all feel today.

It Is Time For You To Stop All Of Your Sobbing
 
By William Trillo

The replay of The Canelo vs. GGG 2 bout took place this weekend and I made it a point to stay as far away from it as humanly possible. I saw it live a week ago and I know what I saw. I did not need Harold and his band of Merry Men trying to get me to second guess what I know I saw last week, that being a razor close victory for Canelo. Yes that is how I scored it, the same as the two official judges in the house that night.

I wasn’t sitting with all the A-list journalists on media row that night, but to tell you the truth, I think my seat gave me a much better vantage point than most of the guys 17 rows back on the floor that night, (see photo for my view of the fight above). I had a perfect and unobstructed view and with the state of the art binoculars I had that night, (thanks Augie), I was literally on top of all the action. I will stand by my score as I saw it until the end of time.

Larry Merchant Breaks Down Canelo vs. GGG 2
 
By William Trillo
In the aftermath of Canelo Alvarez defeating Gennady Golovkin by a razor thin margin on Saturday night chatter has been blowing up from social media to the water cooler. Everyone has an opinion and although I respect the thoughts of most of the fans and pundits there comes a time when I need to get to the bottom of things and speak to an expert.

Enter Larry Merchant. If there has been one voice of reason in boxing for me it has always been the commentary Merchant offers.

In the wake of yet another controversial Canelo/GGG affair I was thrilled to be able to reach out to Larry to hear him breakdown the rematch.

This kind of an event - where an individual can be called the best in any sport - is truly rare.

Decisions, Decisions

The decision rendered in the Canelo vs. GGG rematch wasn’t a robbery nor was it a travesty of justice. It was an extremely close fight that could have gone either way. For the record I scored the fight 115-113 Canelo. I had an excellent view of the fight from my press box perch and without the distractions of the PPV talking heads commentating on the fight I was able to come to my own unbiased opinion. It’s how I saw the fight.

That being said, in the press box I was flanked on either side by journalists from Mexico. Sharing almost exactly the same perspective as I had it came as more than a surprise to me that less than a minute after the final bell rang both said they gave the fight to GGG.

  Canelo Snags GGG’s Belts With
Majority Decision Victory
 
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Photo: Marlene Marquez

Middleweight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KO’s) stood in the center of the ring almost all night against Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KO’s). That is what Triple G was hoping for. Canelo obliged GGG by not running and in doing so he took a razor thin majority decision over Golovkin. Along the way Canelo snatched up all the belts that GGG owned, those being the International Boxing Organization World Middleweight Title, World Boxing Association Super World Middleweight Title &World Boxing Council World Middleweight Title.

Like the last fight, everyone was expecting or hoping for a crushing KO by either fighter. But again, these two finely honed athletes took everything that was offered and never gave a glimpse of hitting the deck. After 12 close rounds judges scored the fight 114-114 even while the other two judges had the fight scored 115-113 giving the nod to Canelo.

  PPV "Uhh-ndercard" Results

Super welterweight Jaime Munguia (31-0, 26 KO’s) took on a less than adequate opponent in Brandon Cook (20-2-0, 13 KO’s) and beat the Ham-N-Egger in a somewhat embarrassing display for a PPV event. Officially Munguia stopped Cook at the 1:03 mark of third, unofficially this fight was over before the opening bell rang. Munguia retains his World Boxing Organization World Super Welterweight Title, but seriously calling this a title defense is a stretch at best.


Middleweight David Lemieux (40-4,34 KO’s) and Gary O'Sullivan (28-3, 20 KO’s) had all the makings on paper of a real war, but that’s why they make ‘em fight. With one of his patented left hooks Lemieux nailed Spike to the canvas. The fight was brought to a halt at the 2:44 mark of round one.


Super flyweight Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (47-2, 39 KO’s) KO’d Moises Fuentes (25-6-1, 14 KO’s) at the 1:44 mark of round 5. One sharp right hand did the permanent damage to Fuetes along the ropes. He would not get up from that pinpoint shot. Gonzalez dominated but appeared to be a shell of his former self in victory.

Fortune Telling Elvis Chides Canelo

No trip to the fights in Las Vegas would be complete without a stop at my favorite watering hole in Yermo followed by a visit with Elvis to get his prediction on the big fight. With GGG vs. Canelo looming Elvis let fly with this little gem that is certainly a warning to Alvarez and quite possibly a hint that Alvarez past indiscretions may come back to haunt him when he faces Golovkin.

Elvis states, “Live it up today, ‘cuz you never know when you’re gonna go…but…watch out for those pills…you know what I mean?”

LAS VEGAS — With just a few days before his rematch with Gennady Golovkin, the Mexican Saul Canelo Alvarez looks like a starving lion in the South African desert. “Yes, I am feeling like a hungry predator at a few days before this rematch with Golovkin,” said Alvarez Wednesday afternoon at the MGM Grand hotel-casino in Las Vegas. “This time, I will be a lot of more aggressive than I was in our first fight. I am determined to attack intensively in each round, and I really believe that my intensity and my power will have me win by KO or TKO this time. Golovkin believes he will take advantage of my intensity, but he is so wrong. I know how much my fists can do damage when I am attacking furiously. I am considering this fight like the biggest moment of my pro boxing career, then, I cannot waste it. I am so impatient to be in the ring. I really believe that my fans will be extremely proud of me Saturday evening.”

Alvarez promised to attack intensively in each round to knock Golovkin out. “Alvarez said he will attack furiously from the beginning to the end of the bout, and I hope he will keep his promise,” said Golovkin. “The more he will attack, more he will give me opportunities to hurt him, more he will give me chances to knock him out. Yes, I really hope he will attack constantly.”

This rematch, a WBA and WBC middleweight championship of the world, will be presented next Saturday in the ring of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It will be televised by HBO pay-per-view.

  Golovkin & Abel Working On
Rereleasing A Classic On Saturday
 
Fight Week is here. Finally. Undefeated WBC/WBA/IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golvkin will be looking to break a record everyone believed would remain untouched -- the record he shares with the legendary Bernard Hopkins. On Saturday, Golovkin will attempt to make the 21st consecutive defense of the middleweight crown he has held since 2010, in a rematch against Lineal Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez. How fitting that Golovkin will be going for the record-breaker against Alvarez inasmuch as the co-promoters of Alvarez, Hopkins and Oscar De La Hoya, will have front row seats to see it. Making it even more memorable, the Golovkin-Alvarez rematch will take place in the same city and on nearly the same date as the De La Hoya - Hopkins Middleweight World Championship fight which took place, on September 18, 2004.

  Contenders Look to Stake Their
Claim in Superfly 3 Tripleheader
 
By Nat Gottlieb - Courtesy of HBO.com
In the loaded super flyweight division, all roads to the top lead through a Thai roadblock named Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. Juan Francisco Estrada has been down that path once before, losing a Fight Of The Year candidate bout to Rungvisai in February. The Mexican wants a rematch, but before he can get one he’ll have to maneuver his way around another barrier in two-time world title challenger, Felipe Orucuta, a rugged fighter with something of a size advantage.

  Gennady "GGG" Golovkin Blog Part 3  
How frustrating was it to hear the judges’ scorecards after your fight with Canelo? Did you use that as an incentive for this training camp for the rematch?

“It was terrible. It was terrible for me. It was terrible for the people. Of course it was terrible for the sport…for the sport of boxing, because statistics showed I landed more punches. The fans saw I wanted to fight and Canelo did not want to fight. The fans who watched it live saw the judges bringing crazy scorecards. When the decision was announced, everyone was saying, "Oh, come on! This is not real! This is not true!" Everybody was very mad because these people, the judges, killed the sport that night. This time, the world will be watching the fight and the judges. Judges hurt the sport of boxing that day. Maybe the judges had a bad day. This is business.

  Canelo Blog Part 2: "I’ve Been Saying About
Him (Abel Sanchez): That He’s A Dumbass"
 
Abel Sanchez keeps saying that you “ran” during your first fight with Golovkin. Golovkin says you should stand and fight him in the center of the ring. What’s your response?

“Comments from Sanchez don’t really bother me because he actually thinks he’s a great trainer, but he doesn’t know what boxing is. He doesn’t know what it is to have technique. He doesn’t know what it is to box or to move. He doesn’t know what it means to adapt to the circumstances of a fight and not just go forward and throw punches. What I do is box. I find it strange that someone who believes himself to be a great trainer does not know how to distinguish between having technique and what he’s saying [the running].

  GGG Blog Part 1: "I Had A Deal In Place To
Fight WBO Champion Billy Joe Saunders"
 
Did you ever worry that this rematch might not happen? How close were you to moving on to another opponent?

“Of course I wanted the rematch to happen but it was never a worry for me if it did or did not happen. That is because after Canelo failed two random drug tests in February everything changed. After I beat Vanes Martirosyan on May 5, I authorized my promoter Tom Loeffler to begin a new negotiation for the rematch with Canelo. Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions assumed I would fight under the terms of the May 5 rematch and they were unhappy when I gave them my terms. What they refused to admit was that it was their side that changed everything once Canelo failed his drug tests. That was their fault not mine.

A Little Mistake?
“Weight” A Minute!
 
By William Trillo
After JoJo Diaz defeated Jesus Rojas in a fight that had literally not one ounce of significance whatsoever Diaz let this little pearl of wisdom fly out of his pie hole, “It was just one little mistake that we didn’t make the weight, it was just one little crucial mistake.”

Where do I begin?

JoJo, a little mistake would be that you forgot to pack your mouthpiece in your bag on fight night.

  Crawley & Garcia Battle To
Majority Draw In Philadelphia
 
This past Friday night, Tyrone Crawley, Jr. and Ricardo Garcia fought to an eight-round majority draw before a capacity crowd at SugarHouse Casino in a junior welterweight bout.

The fantastic nine-bout show was promoted by King's Promotions.

It seemed that Garcia was leading the action by landing combinations on the ropes. Crawley tried to keep the fight at the center of the ring by trying to lead with his left and flicking out the jab. Garcia dictated the action, but the judges did not see it that way as two of the voters saw the fight even at 76-76 and a 3rd judge had it 79-73 for Garcia.

  Navarro Steals The Show In Hollywood

Featherweight Jesus M Rojas (26-2-2, 19 KO’s) lost a dull one-sided bout to Joseph Diaz (27-1, 14 KO’s). Since Diaz decided not to make weight for this World Boxing Association World Featherweight Title fight he effectively rendered this fight as meaningless as shredded hay. I am going to put as much effort in the fight recap as Diaz put in to make weight. Final scores read 116-112, 117-111 and 115-113.

Trainer Marc Ramsay Talks About His New Champion Alvarez: "Game Plan Worked To Perfection"
 
By William Trillo
Don’t look now but Montreal, Canada has become the hotbed for Light Heavyweight World Champions. Three of the four major 175 pound titles in boxing reside in Quebec’s Metropolis. Even more remarkable is the fact that one trainer has tutored two of those champs to the very top. That trainer would be Marc Ramsay. That’s quite an accomplishment for Ramsay who has been working with fighters since 1995.

Krushed By Storm In Atlantic City

Not since Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey shores has such a devastating Storm hit the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. With one Krushing right hand in round seven Eleider Alvarez took Kovalev out into the deep water and left him there to try to swim out of danger. With no life preserver in sight Kovalev struggled to stay afloat but he was no match for the weight of Alvarez’s barrage of punches. Less than a minute later Kovalev sank to the canvas as a jubilant Alvarez celebrated his championship winning performance.

  Alvarez Shocks Kovalev With 7th Round Knockout  
Eleider Alvarez (24-0, 12 KO's) won the WBO & IBA Light Heavyweight Titles with a 7th round knockout over Sergey Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KO's) following 3 knockdowns. Alvarez started early, peppering jabs and right hands within the first 3 rounds. In round 4, Kovalev came back and stunned Alvarez with his power, staggering him more than once with big left hooks and rights, upstairs and to the body. Kovalev began to take control and hurt Alvarez again in the 6th. In round 7, the tide completely shifted when a perfect right hand from Alvarez landed on the side of Kovalev's head that sent him reeling backwards and to the canvas. Kovalev would rise on shaky legs, but it was clear that the damage had been done with that single shot. Alvarez would drop Kovalev again with a jab, right combo, and again Kovalev would rise on uneasy legs, only to fall a 3rd and final time to the same combination. The fight was waived off at 2:45.

On the undercard, Dmitry Bivol (14-0, 11 KO's) won a 12-round Unanimous Decision over Isaac Chilemba (25-6-2, 10 KO's). The fight started at a decent pace, but turned into a bit of a lackluster affair by both men. Bivol did not appear to throw many, if any, body shots the entire fight, while Chilemba is notoriously known for making awkward and drawn-out fights. Final scores were 120-108 twice and a 116-112.

As much as my opinions may make you want to scream, keep in mind that I am not some journalist, (photo or otherwise), who attaches himself to fighters like a blood sucking Leach looking for a small piece of the purse and a tiny portion of the fame.

Gassiev would land a few body punches, but only one clean to the head at the end of round 4 which he was never able to pick up any momentum after.

Final scores were 120-108 and 119-109 twice. With the victory Usyk becomes the first undisputed cruiserweight champion since Evander Holyfield in 1988, and wins the Muhammad Ali Trophy.

  Kovalev vs. Alvarez & Bivol vs. Chilemba
Teleconference Transcript
 
Kathy Duva, CEO Main Events: "Thanks so much for joining in on this beautiful summer day. It is terrific to be putting a show back in Atlantic City. Back in the Etess Arena. Back in a place where a lot of us started out working with our good friends Bernie Dillon, Sharon Pearce and all the other nice people from Hard Rock who we know from way back when. It is always comfortable and feels right for me whenever we end up in Atlantic City where we began. Where we had so many terrific fights. Where Sergey has had so many terrific fights, including his double-title-winning battle with Bernard Hopkins. Where all the great Gatti fights took place. It's been a while. We've been away for four years and we're really happy to see the city coming back on an upswing. That has a lot to do with the good people at Hard Rock who have hit the ground running in the last few weeks with this newly renovated - to the point of you can't recognize it anymore - property.

  Pacquiao Dominates & Stops Matthysse In 7  
Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KO's) won the WBA Welterweight Title with his first stoppage victory in 9 years (2009 vs. Miguel Cotto) with a TKO in the 7th over Lucas Matthysse (39-5, 36 KO's). As soon as the first bell sounded Pacquiao was all over Matthysse. Pacquiao was first to land, last to land, in and out, he looked like his young self, making Matthysse look like the "old" one past his best tonight.

Pacquiao continued to dominate and dropped Matthysse in the 3rd with a perfect left uppercut on the chin through the guard. Matthysse would regain his senses and Pacquiao would remain calm, continuously picking him apart, round after round. At the end of round 5, following a quick left hook to the top of the head, Matthysse decided to take a knee, resulting in the second scored knockdown in the fight.

The end looked near as Matthysse looked like a broken down fighter. In round 7 Pacquiao kept on him with quick punches, scoring another one of those left uppercuts through the guard that dropped Matthysse for the third time in the fight. As referee Kenny Bayless continued the count, Matthysse spit out his mouthpiece in clear exhaustion which prompted Bayless to waive the fight off. Final time was 2:43.
