Speculation continues with the welterweights fight…

Mayweather-Pacquiao stalemate is not good for the sport says Boxing Trainer Stephen Edwards

World class boxing trainer Stephen Edwards says that Floyd v Pac face-off is not showing good signs and he believes that the current stalemate is bad for the sport. By not approving to the supposed super fight for years now, boxing, together with its fans have suffered a quench says Stephen Edwards who handles the careers of Julian Williams and others!

He opines that the talks of the fight were the most awful thing that could ever happen to boxing. The Filipino boxer and the pound for pound boxer looking for a contender in their subsequent fight, it only makes sense that they should come to blows each other. They are the clear most wanted over anyone else, moreover the top fighters in their respective divisions.

Spaced out from being one of the most respected boxing coaches, Stephen is also a journalist for the website, where a lot of interactions happens with boxing enthusiasts together with question and answer sessions.

The outlook that this matter has created is extremely absurd. Guys, who were friends, will take different turns and it will not quite come to blows. In the same discussion, Edwards expressed more aversion on how the Mayweather-Pacquiao non-fight has subjugated the boxing headlines. Mentioning Brook, Errol Spence, Amir Khan and Keith Thurman, boxing fans should welcome and appreciate upcoming fighters in the division, he adds.

Having said all that, the newest on the Floyd-Pac is nothing, but the same it was in November 2014, or years ago since 2010 or 2011 when it was initially thrashed out, when both champions overtly called out each other and that they want the super fight to take place in the start of the New Year. No deal or contract has been confirmed or settled down; however as boxing fervents continue to wait patiently for what could be the biggest fight in boxing history.

The German WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck lately told World Boxing News that he is involved in conferring with devout Blue Bellew about a battle at the home of Everton FC, even though Hearn says IBF holder Yoan Pablo Hernandez is also in the casing.

Currently, I’m planning for Tony Bellew to have the next move with, after he got his revenge over cleverly, “Hearn said in his Daily mail column. “”I’m in negotiations with both Marco Huck and Yoan Hernandez concerning cruiserweight world-title fights with Tony.

The rest of the allotments are on familiar terms that he sells. The statistics from the weekend were very good and that makes him lucratively attractive to all of them.

“At the present time, it looks like his subsequent fight will be for a world title in the spring. We are by now in deep deliberations with Huck, the WBO champion from Germany, and I can disclose we are also talking to Hernandez, the Cuban who has the IBF belt.

“We have noticed the city of Liverpool get at the rear of Tony and I am in talks as regards putting on a battle for him at Goodison Park. The concern is whether we could get one of the world champions to exchange blows over here.

“Taking a look from that perspective, Hernandez seems keener to pass through, so we’ll hang around and witness how it pans out in the next few weeks,” he added.

Nathan cleverly has called for a tie-breaker match flanked by the duo to clear up their disparities once and for all, since Bellew moves on to better and bigger things, the battle looks dead at this point.

Wadi Camacho’s Bite Fight Ended In Debar

With a stiff and heated competition, it comes as no surprise that professional sportspersons can sometimes be on the warpath. We’ve seen this happen quite a few times now, but at times the competition doesn’t merely take a turn for the worse. In certain cases, the competition takes a turn for the childish and that’s when players end up with bite marks.

Wadi Camacho’s bite fight ended in debar

After Luis Suarez’s latest biting incident on the pitch, in the sport of boxing it is Wadi Camacho. In the pantheon of all-time sporting biters, perhaps there are several interesting stories in the history of boxing. Seeing that, he is not the first wrestler to have a nibble, nevertheless the “bite fight” ended up in disentitlement of Wadi Camacho.

Towards the end of the second round of his clash with invincible Craig Kennedy; the cruiserweight prizefighter champion was disqualified.

With fan’s soaring expectations and hopes of victory for their desired pugilist, all went short when Camacho bit off a chunk of Kennedy’s skin. This unsporting behavior prompted referee Martin Williams to step in right away. Having said that, this action of Camacho has not only cost him the match, but has also put him in a bad light!

In the wake of the argument, Camacho protested his innocence, even though on second screening, may have been blameworthy of a rush of blood to the head.
