The Daily Grind: Pacquiao-Cotto Directory, Pressure on Mayweather Jr., Dawson-Johnson II, and more

Pacquiao Cotto Online Live Streaming
It’s always nice when you find a diamond in the rough.

In the always competitive world of boxing coverage, there seem to be more online sites than ever offering coverage of the sweet science and it can be hard keeping track of all of the news. One site that has been around for the long haul and stood the test of time is Bragging Rights Corner, (www.BraggingRightsCorner.com).

The self-proclaimed ‘Hottest Corner in Boxing’ emerged around the turn of the century and has blossomed into one of the most diverse and comprehensive boxing news sites on the net. Much like a fighter’s career the site has seen its share of ups and downs but is recently on a hot streak, in particular with its coverage of the upcoming Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto clash.

With writers based out of locations all over the world, Bragging Rights has featured several interesting articles on the bout, all from a different perspective. As is always the tradition with the site, all of their material can be found in an exclusive directory pertaining to the fight.

In September, photographer Francisco Guzman was on hand to capture the initial announcement of the bout at Yankees Stadium and from that moment forward the tone was set. Other exclusive pieces would follow in coming weeks, from Tony Montgomery claiming that Pacquiao was in deep trouble against Cotto, to Kenny Perrault brining up the suggestion that a Welterweight tournament would be extremely beneficial to the sport.

The directory also has exclusive poll results on a plethora of topics concerning the fight as well. The directory will be updated in coming weeks and anyone wanting to check it out can click here. Anyone interested in becoming a ‘friend’ with Bragging Rights Corner on Facebook can also click here.

It’s time for Floyd Mayweather to do his talking in the ring

I remember a time when Floyd Mayweather used to make news on all things positive. From the moment he defeated Genero Hernandez to win the WBC Jr. Lightweight crown in October of 1998, Mayweather joined the ranks as one of the sport’s most promising young champions. He would go on to have great success in the following years but in recent times the Grand Rapids native has seemed to make headlines in a much more negative light.

Mayweather was recently at it again when he went head to head with emcee and music personality R.A. the Rugged Man, who also happens to be a die hard boxing fan. From the get-go Mayweather was faced with a barrage of questions such as when would he be fighting somebody in his own weight class and why he has avoided various challenges in his career. As the interview continued Mayweather made a few eye-opening statements claiming that the sport of boxing would be ‘dead’ if he left again and that the ‘Philippines make the best enhancement drugs’, an obvious knock on Pacquiao and his recent accomplishments.

Whether you are a Pacquiao fan, hater, or somewhere in between, it would be best to look at the Filipino’s career with a heavy dose of objectivity. In doing that one would be able to give credit for the accomplishments he has produced in recent years as opposed to trying to tear the man down.

The best option for Mayweather at this point would be to let his actions in the ring start speaking for him. He seems to be a very young aged 32 and can erase the recent bad taste he has left in people’s mouths by simply getting down to work against the elite fighters in his weight class. Boxing fans have missed out on Mayweather taking on the likes of Antonio Margartio, Paul Williams, and Miguel Cotto in recent years but there is still time to turn things around. Let’s hope Floyd starts making the right decisions in the very near future.

Dawson and Johnson get ready to do it again

In April of last year Chad Dawson defended his WBC Light Heavyweight belt against rugged Glen Johnson at the St. Pete Times forum in Tampa, Florida. While Dawson came away with a unanimous decision victory by scores of 116-112 on all three scorecards that hardly told the story of the fight.

The bout was both competitive and action packed and Johnson had far more success with his pressure than many would have expected. As the bout reached its late stages Johnson continued to charge forward, even hurting his younger foe in one of the bout’s telling moments. When the verdict was announced some screamed robbery while others felt the right call was given. With both fighters feeling they deserved the victory, the two men will have a chance to do it again this coming Saturday night.

In rematch that is far more worthy and appealing than Dawson’s clear victory over Antonio Tarver in May of this year, the two fighters will square off on HBO’s World Championship Boxing, live from the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut. The telecast kicks off at 9:30 PM/ET with an undercard attraction between come-backing Jr. Middleweight Alfredo Angulo and Harry Joe Yorgey.

Judah returns this Friday

When he returns to the ring this Friday night against Adailton De Jesus, it will be the first time in nearly a year that Zab Judah has set foot inside of a ring for a professional bout. He last saw action when he won a ten round decision against Ernest Johnson on the Joe Calzaghe-Roy Jones undercard and just three months before that he lost a technical decision against Joshua Clottey for the vacant IBF welterweight strap.

Judah has been staying in the headlines with some verbal chiding between possible future opponents while also stating his desires to return to his natural ‘home’ of 140 pounds. Having recently turned 32, this could be looked at as perhaps Zab’s last run towards a championship and all of the talking will go out the window come Friday when he meets De Jesus at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Judah was in attendance for last night’s Joseph Agbeko-Yonnhy Perez title fight at the Treasure Island Casino and seemed to be in great spirits.

Perez dethrones Agbeko in wild affair

Speaking of the Perez-Agbeko bout, did I mention that it was an all action thriller? In one of this year’s best fights the two men went toe to toe for twelve entertaining rounds, with Perez scoring the mild upset by scores of 117-110 twice and 116-111. With the win the Columbian moves his record to 20-0 with 14 knockouts and more importantly seizes control of the IBF Bantamweight belt.

From the outset Perez seemed to shake Agbeko with the harder punches but the proud fighter from Ghana continued to apply pressure all night long. An accidental head butt would daze Agbeko in the tenth and a follow up barrage by Perez scored the bout’s only knockdown moments later. The action was fierce up until the final bell and it seemed to be a fight that could have gone either way. Both men elevated their statuses with their performances and a rematch would certainly be a welcome idea.
