World Boxing Super Series Rant (Not being shown on American TV hurts the Sport of Boxing). The World Boxing Super Series has had some great fights, but the lack of television coverage hurts the sport in my opinion.

Keith (One Time)Thurman and Jessie(Ruthless) Vargas are looking at facing each other in April of 2018. Possibly at The Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. The 14th of the month is the likely date. This will be Thurman’s who is the WBC and WBA welterweight champion first fight since having surgery on his right elbow earlier this year. Vargas is a former WBO champion having beaten Miguel Cotto conqueror Sadam Ali for that championship. Please help me grow the channel by subscribing YouTube

Vasyl Lomachenko Makes Guillermo Guillermo Rigondeaux Quit On His Stool. I don’t know how badly Guillermo Rigondeaux’s hand was hurt, or if it was hurt at all. I have my questions about that. However, I have watched enough boxing in my life to know that if Rigondeaux wanted to continue with the fight. He would have. Vasyl Lomachenko made Guillermo Rigondeaux quit between rounds 6 & 7 in their highly anticipated boxing match. Rigondeaux was the fourth opponent in a row that Lomachenko made quit between rounds. The previous three are Nicholas Walters, Jason Sosa and Miguel Marriaga. Those are all high quality if not world class boxers, that Lomachenko made quit. Lomachenko moves to 10 wins with 8 wins by stoppage, and retains his WBO super featherweight championship. Rigondeaux drops to 17 wins with 11 by stoppage and, takes his first career loss (by stoppage). The fight and card was promote by Bob Arum’s Top Rank and shown on ESPN.

Errol Spence Jr & Vasyl Lomachenko Are They Top 10 Pound For Pound?. I think they both are worthy of being ranked in the top 10. In this video I try to explain why I think Errol Spence Jr & Vasyl Lomachenko Are 10 Pound for Pound Boxers
Top 10 Pound For Pound Boxers October 2017 Based on my opinion of quality of opposition and level of performance. Over the past two years. (October 1, 2015-October 1, 2017) 1. Terence Crawford: Crawford is my number one pound for pound boxer. Every pound for pound list including this one is subjective. However over the past two years I just can’t see an argument that would make me consider anyone else as the best boxer in the world. Not everyone he’s fought are A+ world beaters (What I call career definers), but they have at least met the minimum requirement to be in a championship match. I would say his fights with both Viktor Postol and Julius Indongo were indeed career definers. He’s also been one of the most active champion with 6 fights in the time frame. Here is why he has separated himself from the rest of the pack. In the six fights he has had in the past two years. He has been absolutely dominate. No boxer can say they have fought as high a level of competition, or has been as dominant as he has been. 2. Keith Thurman: This pick might come as a surprise. This is a case of quality over quantity. Thurman has wins over Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia. This list is subject to my subjective opinion of their performances in the ring. I fell both fights were competitive fights. However I fell Thurman clearly won both times. 3. Gennady Golovkin** : Lets get this out of the way. While the fight was officially a draw. I scored the fight between Golovkin and Alvarez 8-4 for GGG. If he was given the nod over Canelo officially. I probably would have moved GGG over Thurman. I won’t try to tell you he has an all time great resume even over the past two years. However it’s better than his hatters will tell you it is. 4. Saul Alvarez**: I had Canelo at #3 and pretty much a 2b with Thurman in my last rankings. After the GGG fight I couldn’t keep him at 2b. I thought GGG won the fight so I had to move him over Canelo. 5. Andre Ward* . Ward is officially retired. However he has been active over the past two years. If this was a career resume list he would rank higher. I am going to be blunt. He should have dominated Sergey Kovalev in their first fight. I don’t think the talent level between the two is that close. Yes Kovalev was the #2 or 3 guy at light heavyweight. I happen to fell that Ward should have made a rematch unnecessary. I also fell that at the time of the stoppage in the second fight. Ward was pulling away, but it was still close in my opinion at the time. Ward’s win over Sullivan Barrera is looking better and better all the time. Alexander Brand might be the least qualified opponent for anyone on this list. 6.Vasyl Lomachenko: Before fighting Miguel Marriaga who is a decent boxer, but was coming off a loss. I felt Lomachenko had a three fight run that was almost as good as what Crawford has been doing. Before that he fought Romulo Koasicha that also doesn’t help his case. However he moved up to face Roman Martinez and won a championship. Nicholas Walters was supposed to be able to beat him. Jason Sosa had defended his championship in his previous fight. Even though he ws not champion when they fought. He did not lose it in the ring. 7. Anthony Joshua: It’s not just his win over Wladimir Klitschko that has earned a pound for pound ranking for AJ. I also think Dominic Breazeale is the real thing and Dillian Whyte has some solid wins since their fight. 8. Mikey Garcia: Garcia has wins over the than unbeaten Dejan Zlaticanin and the talented Adrien Broner. 9. Errol Spence Jr. Going in to their fight there were plenty of people who felt that Kell Brook was the best welterweight in the world. Spence went in to his hometown to beat him. While Chris Algieri and Leonard Bundu might not be A+ world beaters, and neither fight was for a championship. They are both quality boxers. 10.. Wisaksil Wangek (Srisaket Sor Rungvisai): His first win over Roman Gonzalez was questionable. However in the second fight he left no doubt. *Retired, but active the past two years. ** I had GGG beating Canelo 8-4 and my rankings reflect this.
Andre Ward Retirement Quick Thoughts. At the age of 33 Andre Ward is retireing from boxing (for the second time). He has a career record of 33 wins with 16 knockouts. o losses and 0 draws. He is a two division world champion at super middleweight 168, and light heavyweight 175. His winning The Super Six World Boxing Classic may be the greatest accomplishment ever at super middleweight. Keep in mind that Mikkel Kessler and Carl Froch were expected to win going in. Ward beat both of them. He also won an Olympic Gold medal in 2004. He finished his career with two wins over Sergey Kovalev. Ward is a great boxer a future Hall of Famer.
