Roach Says a Prime Pacquiao 'Walks Through' Everyone at 147

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach believes that a prime Manny Pacquiao would have walked through any of the top welterweights of today.

Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KOs) recently signed on with Al Haymon's Premier Boxing Champions.

Haymon works with numerous top welterweights - including WBC champion Shawn Porter, WBA champion Keith Thurman, IBF champion Errol Spence, Danny Garcia, and several others.
The first fight of Pacquiao's PBC deal is expected to take place in January, against former four division champion Adrien Broner. The Showtime Pay-Per-View bout is being targeted for Las Vegas. Roach, who worked with Pacquiao for 16 years, told The Inquirer that the eight division world champion, in his prime, “would have walked through all of them (welterweight top dogs of today).”

Pacquiao parted ways with Roach earlier this year and is now being trained by best friend Buboy Fernandez.

In July, Pacquiao had his first bout with Fernandez in charge of the entire camp, and the boxer scored a one-sided knockout win over Lucas Matthysse to capture the WBA "regular" welterweight title.

Roach says a fight with Broner “would be a good challenge” for the 39-year-old veteran.

Broner was in action earlier this year, when he fought to a twelve round draw with Jessie Vargas.

But, Roach says "there has to be something big at the end of the road” for Pacquiao to accept a fight with Broner.

And the big payoff is likely a rematch with five division world champion Floyd Mayweather, who won a twelve round decision over the Filipino superstar back in May of 2015.

“The first fight was not so great, Manny had a bad [shoulder] injury, but that was all part of boxing,” added Roach. “So I would like to see it one more time.”

“[Pacquiao's] work ethic is still unbelievable. He works very hard every day. With the work ethic he has, I give him a chance with anyone out there."

No-nonsense ref for IBF title fight

By Joaquin Henson
PhilBoxing.com
Thu, 25 Oct 2018

A no-nonsense referee from Pittsburgh will work the scheduled 12-round fight between Davao City’s Randy Petalcorin and Nicaragua’s Felix Alvarado for the vacant IBF lightflyweight championship at the Midas Hotel and Casino tent on Monday. 

Ernie Sharif has been assigned as the third man in the ring for the bout where the expectation is Alvarado will brawl and Petalcorin will counter. It’s a classic encounter as Alvarado is a frightening knockout artist and Petalcorin has a reputation as a classy technician. 

Sharif was the referee when Carl Frampton scored a split 12-round decision over Scott Quigg in an IBF/WBA superbantamweight unification title bout in Lancashire, UK, in 2016, when Wladimir Klitschko halted Francesco Pianeta in the sixth round to retain his unified IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight championship in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, in 2013 and when Billy Dib retired Eduardo Escobedo at the end of the sixth to keep his IBF featherweight crown in Tasmania, Australia, in 2012. What gained acclaim for Sharif was his impartiality in penalizing Dib, an Australian, a point for holding and hitting in the third round before a partisan crowd in Tasmania. It took guts for Sharif to dock a point off the hometown defending champion.

Monroe: I Don't Want To Hear Excuses From Charlo When I Win

By Keith Idec

NEW YORK – Willie Monroe Jr. hopes Jermall Charlo isn’t underestimating him.

Charlo’s upcoming opponent wants to face the most focused, prepared Charlo possible December 22 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. That way, Monroe explained, when he pulls off an upset, there won’t be any justifications for Charlo’s first loss.

“I want him to be the best of who he is,” Monroe told BoxingScene.com following a press conference Thursday at Barclays Center. “That way, when I walk away with the victory, there will be no excuses. There’ll be no, ‘He didn’t …’ Don’t give me the excuses. Y’all been giving me excuses my whole career. Give me my props.”

Daniel Jacobs-Sergiy Derevyanchenko: Stats & Stakes

by Cliff Rold

This is the beginning of goodbye.

While industry speculation was in the air well before, the aftermath of Saul Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin II made it official. HBO Boxing will soon join the Gillette, the commentary of Don Dunphy, and Wide World of Sports as part of the rich broadcasting history of the sport.

As part of boxing’s past.

The future isn’t quite here yet.

This weekend, one of the final HBO show will be headlined by a middleweight fight for a vacant title that looks good on paper and may mean more than it appears to heading into 2019.

The new landscape of boxing is already seeing plenty of jockeying for position. Fans who hope for a new era where all the fights they want happen more rapidly than in years past will be disappointed. Fans who can’t get enough inside baseball should pay close attention here.

Right now, the middleweight division is critical. It’s WBC, WBA, and lineal champion also happens to be the biggest active money draw in the sport. Alvarez has signed a multi-year deal with DAZN. DAZN also has WBO middleweight titlist Demetrius Andrade in their tent.

The only belt that isn’t firmly in the DAZN wheelhouse is the IBF belt. Its vacancy will be rectified Saturday night (HBO, 10 PM EST). A Jacobs win would likely be a good thing for DAZN, lining him up for a potential showdown with Alvarez. A Derevyanchenko win would be a wild card at a time when the PBC lacks a foothold in the class.

The fight in the ring should be good. The fight outside might be too.   

Let’s get into it.

Claressa Shields is Stoked About Stay-Busy Defense on Nov. 17

On Saturday, November 17, at the Kansas Star Arena and Casino in Mulvane, Kansas, superstar two-division women’s world champion Claressa Shields of Flint, Michigan, will defend her IBF and WBA World Middleweight Championships and be looking to add the vacant WBC title against Hannahh Rankin from Glasgow, Scotland.

The 10-round Shields (6-0, 2 KOs), and Rankin (5-2, 1 KO) battle will serve as the co-featured bout to Brooklyn-born heavyweight contender Jarrell Miller’s WBA World Heavyweight Championship showdown against Romania’s Bogdan Dinu.

These two fights will be broadcast live on DAZN, along with former world champion Brandon Rios taking on Canelo’s brother, Ramon Alvarez, in a super welterweight 10-rounder and former two-time world middleweight title challenger Gabriel Rosado going against once-beaten contender Luis Arias.

Middleweight title fight

Daniel Jacobs and Sergiy Derevyanchenko share a trainer and have sparred with each other many times.

Now they’re fighting without the headgear and with a world title on the line.

Jacobs and Derevyanchenko will meet for the vacant IBF middleweight title Saturday in an HBO-televised main event at the Madison Square Garden Theater in New York. The coverage airs at 7 p.m.

Trainer Andre Rozier will be in Jacobs’ corner, and Rozier assistant Gary Stark Sr. will lead Derevyanchenko’s corner.

Jacobs, a native of Brooklyn, New York, estimated he and the fighter from Ukraine have sparred with each other more than 300 rounds.

They’re fighting for Gennady Golovkin’s belt, which he had stripped by the IBF for not fighting Derevyanchenko in May when Saul “Canelo” Alvarez withdrew from their rematch.

Tyson Fury Admits He 'Gave Up on Life' During Depression Battle

Tyson Fury has opened up about his battle with depression and said he “wanted to die so bad” while suffering with the mental illness.

Fury, 30, who fights WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder on December 1, also talked about his alcoholism and drug addiction in a candid interview.

“I would start thinking these crazy thoughts,” Tyson told video podcast The Joe Rogan Experience. “I bought a brand new Ferrari convertible in the summer of 2016.

“I was in it on the highway and at the bottom, I got the car up to 190mph and heading towards a bridge.

“I didn’t care about nothing. I just wanted to die so bad. I gave up on life, but as I was heading to the bridge I heard a voice saying, ‘No, don’t do this Tyson, think about your kids, your family, your sons and daughter growing up without a dad.'”

Hearn: Many People Believe, And I Agree, That Jacobs Beat GGG!

Daniel Jacobs meets Sergiy Derevyanchenko inside the Theater at Madison Square Garden, with the winner taking the IBF's vacant version of the 160-pound title.

There's been a flurry of changes within the division lately, with Alvarez owning half of the four major titles after edging longtime champion Golovkin last month in their rematch. Demetrius Andrade won the other belt last week, and Jacobs (34-2, 29 KOs) can put his name on the list of champions.

The 31-year-old from Brooklyn fell just short last year against Golovkin, who hasn't announced plans for his return from his first loss. And Jacobs would love a first chance at Alvarez, who is challenging for a 168-pound title in his next fight but is expected to return to middleweight afterward.

Outside Looking In: What can signing wih Haymon mean to Pacquio

By Eddie Alinea
PhilBoxing.com

Sun, 28 Oct 2018 It’s official. Filipino ring great Manny Pacquiao, himself, announced on Monday last week that from hereon, he will be working with manager/adviser Al Haymon. 

Meaning? Well, it means for the second straight fight after annihilating Lucas Matthyse, who he dethroned as Word Boxing Association welterweight titleholder last July via a seventh round TKO, Pacquiao will be dancing atop the ring without the blessing of Top Rank’s Bob Arum, his promoter the past one decade and-a-half of his storied 23-year professional career. 

It means, too, that the now member of the Philippine Senate will now have the chance to face the best and the brightest fighters in the 147-pound division, a privilege Pacquiao didn’t get under Arum since advancing to the welter class with the 12th round stoppage of Miguel Cotto in 2009.
