The Norton-Holmes (or, if you prefer, the Holmes-Norton) Fight.

I remember most of Norton's fights; this one doesn't require any words to accompany it:

The New Mayweather?

As some of you may have heard, a Mayweather Instagram appeared, mocking De La Hoya's substance abuse problem. It is in the link. The feeling has grown on me in the past few months that Mayweather's former, crude and offensive "ghettiquette" may actually be a thing of the past. He is still arrogant to an extent, but fairly muted about it, and really, he does have substantial grounds for the things he says about himself. In any case, he was gracious to and appreciative of De La Hoya's plight before the Alvarez fight, and was fair and balanced about Alvarez before and after that fight. Mayweather offended me for quite a few years, and his remarks about Pacquiao edged near the boundary of "free" speech and "hate" speech. I have no qualms about saying that I detested him for a long time. Since his incarceration, however someone else named "Floyd Mayweather Jr." seems to have emerged, someone I at least can actually accord some measure of respect as a human being as well as a boxer.

The Smilex Factor: Danny Garcia W12 Lucas Matthysse

Last night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse promised a savage consolation for those who preferred punches to pageantry, carnage to catchphrases, and a sense of drama not undermined by the presence of an androgynous teeny bopper mean-mugging. No, Garcia-Matthysse was just a high-stakes fight between two guys who crack heads—perfect, almost foolproof, in its simplicity. To the surprise of most, the fight went the distance; to the surprise of almost as many, Garcia did the best cracking, earning a hard-fought unanimous decision. To continue reading, click the link.

The Risk Factor: Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Saul Alvarez Preview

Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and Saul Alvarez look to set a new profit paradigm in boxing when they meet on September 14th at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, at a catchweight of 152 pounds. This is a fight that may gross up to $200 million, an astonishing figure for any event, much less one that will involve two men engaging in fisticuffs, a barbaric practice whose doom has been predicted for decades. In addition, Mayweather-Alvarez is one of the rare instances of logic taking precedence in boxing, a pursuit so irrational it often resembles a Marx Brothers production. Not even a bout between Manny Pacqiuao and Mayweather—possibly the biggest grossing event in boxing history—could be made in the madhouse atmosphere of prizefighting. Like a sinister matryoshka doll, boxing reveals a new grotesquerie every time common sense threatens to make even a cameo appearance. Click on link for more from The Cruelest Sport.
