The fight that Pacquiao wants is a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. That’s a fight that could take place in 2019 if he gets past Broner. There’s a lot of money for Pacquiao to make in fighting Mayweather a second time. Their first fight broke PPV records in 2015, and gave Pacquiao a large $100 million payday. A second fight might bring Pacquiao even more money depending on how well it does. Mayweather is great attracting interest in his fights no matter who he faces.

Maurice Hooker is set to defend the WBO junior welterweight title on Friday night when he takes on Alex Saucedo in Oklahoma City, live on ESPN.

Thursday’s weigh-in got a little physical, with Saucedo (28-0, 18 KO) brushing Hooker (24-0-3, 16 KO) back with a bit of an elbow, and Hooker responding with a little shove before things were quickly broken up.

In a quick interview with Fight Hub TV, trainer Naazim Richardson provides some quick thoughts on the expected match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Adrien Broner for the top of the year.

“Pacquiao and Broner. The resurgence of Pacquiao has been electrifying so maybe we can expect the resurgence of Broner...It’s not like that kid can’t fight. I mean I’ve been knowing Broner since he was a little kid at the Silver Gloves beating people up.

“Broner is a special talent, and like I said, Kevin Cunningham does a great job with him. Michael Stafford has done a great job with him...you liable to expect anything outta Broner. That’s a fighting lil’ rat. I use to throw him out my room in the Silver Gloves — ‘cause he was full of energy, man.

“I hope he targets the gym because when he does he is a problem. So like I said, Pacquiao better not underestimate him, any way shape or form.”

Jarrell Miller came in slightly lower Friday than the career-high 317 pounds he weighed for his previous fight.

The undefeated heavyweight contender officially weighed in at 315¼ pounds for his 12-round fight against Bogdan Dinu on Saturday night. Romania’s Dinu stepped on the Kansas Athletic Commission’s scale at 237¼ pounds.

Despite the significant discrepancy, Brooklyn’s Miller will have less of a weight advantage against Dinu (78 pounds) than he owned over Tomasz Adamek. The 30-year-old Miller (22-0-1, 19 KOs) was 90 pounds heavier than the 41-year-old Adamek (53-6, 31 KOs), whom Miller knocked out in the second round October 6 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

A disappointed Frankie Gavin has revealed he is ‘gutted’ after failing to once again make the 147lb welterweight limit.

The former British and Commonwealth Champion lost the European Welterweight Title on the scales in Bilbao this evening after weighing in at just under 152lb (10st 11lb 5oz), just shy of five pounds over the championship limit.

That puts an end to Gavin’s dreams of wrestling the European strap from the clutches of current champion, Kerman Lejarraga, tomorrow evening.

CARL FRAMPTON has accused big fight rival Josh Warrington of being a dirty fighter with his head and warned: Put the nut on me and I’ll give one back.
 
Warrington (27-0) makes the first defence of his IBF world Featherweight championship against the Belfast great at Manchester Arena on Saturday December 22.
 
Two-weight world champion Frampton is ready for everything Warrington brings following his upset world title win against Lee Selby.

Two-division champion Danny Garcia returns to action against rugged brawler Adrian Granados on April at a site to be determined (8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.) as he tries to rebound from September unanimous decision loss to two-time title winner Shawn Porter for the WBC’s vacant welterweight crown at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The 30-year-old Garcia (34-2, 20 KOs) fights the 29-year-old Granados (20-6-2, 14 KOs, 1 NC), of Cicero, Illinois, after having gone 1-2 in his past three fights, sandwiching a split-decision loss in a unification clash with Keith Thurman (28-0, 22 KOs) in March 2017 and the loss to Porter (29-2-1, 17 KOs) around a ninth-round TKO of former 135-pound titleholder Brandon Rios in February.

Garcia lost his WBC crown to Thurman, who vacated it due to injuries, allowing Porter to take the vacant crown by defeating Garcia.

By Lem Satterfield

John Molina’s opponents rarely need to go looking for a fight, because the 35-year-old, all-action brawler often brings the battle to them.

Following a 44-second stoppage loss to left-handed former 135-pound champion Antonio DeMarco in September 2012, Molina won three of his next four, including a majority decision loss to then-unbeaten Andrey Klimov (June 2013) and consecutive victories by 10th- and second-round TKO over future titleholder Mickey Bey and Jorge Pimentel in July and November 2013. 

Over the course of his next three 140-pound bouts, all non-title losses to current or former champions, Molina fell by 11th-round knockout to Lucas Matthysse (April 2014) and consecutive unanimous decisions to Humberto Soto (September 2014) and four-division title winner Adrien Broner (March 2015).

DEONTAY Wilder has branded Tyson Fury's decision to appoint legendary trainer Freddie Roach as "nervous behaviour" ahead of their December 1 clash in Los Angeles.

The WBC heavyweight champion was speaking after Fury hired the Hall of Fame coach barely two weeks before the fight.

Fury has been training at Roach's Wild Card gym in Los Angeles and seems to have given the American free reign hoping he can add more than just his skills with cuts.

Fury said this week: "We’re training in Freddie’s gym now, in Hollywood, at the Wild Card, you know, it’s good to have Freddie’s experience around, giving us good pointers.

"And he’s a very nice guy, so I thought I’d invite him to be part of the team and he can give us some good experience in the corner.

"Whatever Freddie wants to do, he can do."

Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzalez has revealed that he received an offer to face Khalid "Kal" Yafai in 2019 for the super flyweight championship of the World Boxing Association.

Gonzalez will review that offer, and mull that direction, if he defeats Mexico's Pedro Guevara on the 8th of December in California.

The Nicaraguan superstar, who captured world titles at 105, 108, 112 and 115 - is angling for another world title.

Colombian bantamweight Yeison “El Mulo” Vargas will be experiencing a number of career firsts in the Hard Rock Event Center at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and live on Boxeo Telemundo, on Friday, November 30. 

That’s when Cartagena’s undefeated Vargas (17-0, 12 KOs) will face Mexico’s Ricardo Espinoza (21-2, 18 KOs) for the WBO-NABO Championship in the 10-round main event of promoter Kris Lawrence and The Heavyweight Factory’s (in association with All Star Boxing) “Rumble at the Rock III” event.
