Missed this last year, but Vanes Martirosyan calling (ex-PED peddler turned boxing strength & conditioning coach extraordinaire) Memo Heredia out on Twitter for allegedly offering him an injection for $9k during their first, and only, meeting is interesting.
Especially interesting when you see Heredia clients like Lucian Bute and Rogelio Medina look so strong and revitalized under his program.
Interesting that Eddie Hearn is trying to steal Chris Eubank Jr. away (for a John Ryder fight, perhaps?) from Frank Warren for his June 25th undercard, which would once again derail plans for a Saunders-Eubank Jr. rematch.
Victor Ortiz really does have a chin made out of kinder egg.
He was boxing quite well in the Berto rematch until the first real punch Berto landed basically ended the fight. He needs to retire before he’s seriously hurt.
Who in their right mind could give a shit about Danny Garcia vs. Andre Berto?
Powers that be, don’t make this dreck #ThankAlHaymon
Looks increasingly as if Deontay Wilder is going to go through with his fight against Povetkin.
I’ll believe it when I see the ringwalks, but props if he can go into the lion’s den & beat the rejuvenated Russian.
Canelo-Khan is fun, outside-the-box matchmaking, which I’m all for, but it’s unfortunately a mismatch in the ring.
It’s also ludicrous as a 155lb. catchweight contest for the lineal middleweight title.
Khan will be on his bike from the first bell, possibly winning one or two early rounds, but will be in survival mode by halfway.
The most likely outcome is a lopsided decision, but it will be interesting to see if Khan’s (overly derided) chin can take Canelo’s (overrated) power.
