Saunders is angered that Golovkin is continuing to pursue Canelo. Last year Golovkin was the mandatory challenger to Canelo's WBC belt. The fight never happened when Canelo vacated his title and moved down to 154. Golovkin became the full WBC champion by default.

"I’ll tell you what Canelo is. He’s a little ginger p*ssy. A little ginger f*ggot, that's what he is," Saunders erupted to IFL TV.

"I don’t know why Golovkin is worried about him for, because he had a belt and gave it to him. He don’t want to fight Golovkin. He don’t want to fight nobody. Again, they want to fight people... they want to bring people down. They are bringing Chavez down to a stupid, stupid weight. He wouldn’t go to 160 to fight Golovkin. He won’t have me, yet he’ll have Chavez coming down."

"[Canelo] is nobody to worry about because he’s just trying to protect something - his legacy. The only legacy he’s got is getting beat off by Mayweather - nothing else. He might have tons and tons of money, good luck and fair play to him. I know how the sport is and he deserves it, but in my opinion, he’d never go down as a great - never, ever. I'm not saying that I'd go down as a great, but as a boxing fan he will never go down as a great in my book, ever."

Roman Gonzalez: I Never Imagined That I Would Lose That Fight

By Elisinio Castillo

Nicaragua's Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez is still shocked that he suffered the first defeat of his pro career last Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, when he lost a twelve round majority decision to mandatory challenger Srisaket Sor Rungvisai of Thailand.

Heading into the fight, Gonzalez was considered by many experts to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and was a heavy favourite going into the contest.

After several head clashes, Gonzalez suffered a couple of cuts over his right eye which bleed profusely throughout much of the fight and hampered his vision.

Gonzalez dropped to 46-1, 38 KOs - and he was shocked to have suffered his first loss. He went down in the first round, which was only the second time he had tasted the canvas. The scores were 114-112, 114-112 and 113-113.

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, Gonzalez arrived back home and received a hero's welcome. "It was a very tough fight, a difficult fight, but thank God we came out well. I had a cut on the eyebrow and one on the head," Gonzalez said. "It was a difficult fight and God knows how things are."

"I did a good job, I was in the best physical condition, I fought the entire twelve rounds bleeding and it was a difficult fight, but thank God everything went well and here we are. It was a great fight, most of the punches I threw I was able to connect... but well, that's the sport. I'm going to get some rest ... we have no problem (if we do not get the rematch). "I am happy to be back in my country. I was not happy with the ruling, I know it was a difficult fight but I never imagined that I would lose."

Among his immediate plans, Chocolatito is hoping to rest for a month and then he plans to travel to Japan to speak with his promoter Mr. Honda of Teiken Promotions "to see what happens."

No Robbery at MSG, But Golovkin's Future Plans are Criminal

By Lyle Fitzsimmons

Let’s get a few things out of the way.

I scored Saturday night’s fight 114-113 in favor of Danny Jacobs, but in no way do I believe – contrary to many of the social media troll persuasion – that the word “robbery” in any way applies to the goings-on at the world’s most famous midtown Manhattan arena.

Artur Beterbiev is About To Become Mandatory To Andre Ward

By Luke Furman

Montrealer of Russian origin, light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (11-0, 11 KOs), is about to become the IBF's mandatory challenger to world champion Andre Ward (31-0, 15 KOs).

The IBF, and Beterbiev's promoter Yvon Michel, have gone through hell in their failed attempts to secure an opponent for a final world title eliminator.

Keith Thurman Breaks Down Kell Brook vs. Errol Spence

By Edward Chaykovsky

Earlier this month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Keith Thurman won a twelve round split decision over Danny Garcia to unify the WBC, WBA welterweight titles.

On May 27th in Sheffield, another important welterweight fight will take place when Kell Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) makes a mandatory defense of his IBF world title against mandatory challenger Errol Spence (21-0, 18 KOs).

Thurman has a very big interest in facing the winner of the contest.

Never Faced an Animal Like Me

By Thomas Gerbasi

Every boxer is confident. If he wasn’t, then he wouldn’t walk up those four steps into the ring. But there are different levels of confidence. On the scale, you could put Floyd Mayweather on the top, home to the loud, boisterous confidence that lets the world know how the former pound-for-pound king feels, whether anyone cares to hear it or not. On the lower end, how about placing Mayweather’s former foe, Manny Pacquiao, there? The Filipino icon knows how good he is, but he isn’t screaming it from the rooftops. His performances should speak loudly enough.

And then there’s Irish middleweight prospect Jason Quigley, who headlines an ESPN show at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, against Glen Tapia on Thursday. His confidence could sit somewhere in the middle, as he’s not beating his chest and telling the world what he’ll do on fight night, and he’s not sitting by quietly either. But his confidence when it comes to Thursday night and his boxing future may be the most dangerous, because there is no false bravado. He believes everything that comes out of his mouth and he’s more than willing to back it up. That makes the native of Donegal, Ireland a scary man at 160 pounds, and as affable as Quigley is, you probably wouldn’t want to fight him.

Sullivan Barrera vs. Felix Valera in Play, HBO Latino on April 15

By Elisinio Castillo

Cuban light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera (18-1, 13 KOs) is returning in the month of April, but not against the fighter he was initially scheduled to face.

There were discussions that Barrera would face Artur Beterbiev in an IBF final eliminator, but the contest never happened when Barrera walked away from the bout citing financial concerns.

Barrera is going to return on April 15 at the Mohegan Casino in Connecticut as part of an HBO Latino broadcast. He will battle Felix Valera (14-1, 12 KO), a man who once owned an interim-title under the World Boxing Association (WBA).

Daily Bread Mailbag: Golovkin-Jacobs, Gonzalez-Rungvisai, More

By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

The Daily Bread Mailbag returns with Stephen 'Breadman' Edwards tackling a ton of questions regarding the outcomes to Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs and Roman Gonzalez vs. Sor Rungvisai, and a lot more.

Do you think it was fair that Jacobs skipped the IBF weigh in the next day? And did it play a factor in the outcome of the fight?

Bread’s Response: Boxing is the art of Skullduggery. It wasn’t an act of sportsmanship but Jacobs made the weight that was most important. He didn’t get to fight for the IBF title which enforces the 2nd day weigh in…. It wasn’t fair but it wouldn’t consider it cheating either. Let’s just say he went after an important advantage. I think Team Jacobs lined themselves up with advantages and that’s what a team should do.  Since Jacobs walks around at a heavier weight they also had a big advantage in weighing in so early in the morning the day before at the official weigh in. Everyone seemed to miss that.
