Anthony Joshua proved why he is one of the best active heavyweight boxers today after outboxing and outsmarting Andy Ruiz Jr., on their rematch to reclaim his unified heavyweight belts at the debut of the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.

The British boxer who weighed 236 pounds, 11 pounds lighter than their first fight, used his speed and athleticism to outclass the slower Ruiz who added an enormous 15 pounds to his weight (283 lb).


Two judges scored the fight 118-110 while the other put it 119-109, all in favor of Joshua.

With the win, Joshua has revived his criticized boxing career and now holds a 23 wins, 21 knockouts and 1 defeat record.

Meanwhile, Ruiz who made the biggest upset in the modern boxing suffered his second defeat in 33 wins including 22 knockouts.

“I respect Andy and his trainer so much but I wanted to put on a great master class and show that the sweet science of this sport is about hitting and not getting hit,” Joshua said.

“As I always say, I’m not perfect but I’m trying. Never a change in mentality. You know the saying — stay hungry, stay humble. I’m hungry, I’m humble in defeat and I’m going to remain humble in victory.”

Also, during the post-fight interview, both boxers expressed their interest for a trilogy.

Despite boxing exhibition, Floyd Mayweather firm on retirement

Published

on

By Ponciano Melo – Floyd Mayweather once again displayed his amazing showmanship in the sports of boxing. An easy money for an easy fight.

Millions of dollars came flowing right into his account as he made an eight-round exhibition boxing against YouTube personality Logan Paul. The fight went to distance and there was no winner.

Fans and star personalities in attendance were hoping for a more action fight but they received a little power punches and thrill.

Although, many commended the toughness of Paul against the fading power of the 44-year old Mayweather.

Now, the questions after the fight was obvious: will Floyd come back and fight professional once again?

The answer was clear from the legendary boxer.

\”I\’m never coming back to boxing. I\’m absolutely not,\” he said during the post press conference.

He only had praise for his opponent and nothing more.

\”I had fun. You\’ve got to realize I\’m not 21 anymore. He was strong, tough and better than I thought he was. I was surprised by him tonight. Good work. Good little guy,\” he added.

He also insisted that he already made his mark in boxing and he has enough wealth.

\”When the money comes, we\’ll see who is the real winner.”

\”At the end of the day, I\’m going into the Hall of Fame for boxing. I have nothing to prove.\”

Manny Pacquiao is back in training!

Published

on

By Ponciano Melo – With over two months of staying until his profoundly expected battle against Errol Spence Jr, Manny Pacquaio began preparing.

Generally viewed as perhaps the best fighter ever, the Filipino southpaw has had a renowned lifetime, winning 12 world titles and being the solitary eight-division best on the planet in the game.

He has a severe excellent expert record of 62 successes out of 71 battles with just seven losses up until this point.

Pacquaio\’s last battle was against Keith Thurman in Nevada just about two years prior. In this manner, he won the session through split choice, turning into the most established welterweight champion at 40 years old years and 216 days.

The 42-year-old will next take on Errol Spence Jr at the same scene on August 21, and he\’s as of now began his preparation as the new film demonstrates.

The battle in August is something boxing fans everywhere in the world will be excited about watching. Pacquaio will undoubtedly confront perhaps the most challenging episode of his vocation. On the other hand, Spence, the current IBF and WBC welterweight champion has yet to lose any of his 27 battles and will be excited about keeping up that record.

The 31-year-old\’s last battle was against Danny Garcia, which he won, and that is presumably why he is viewed as the top pick against Pacquaio in August. Nonetheless, the 42-year-old will be a long way from willing to tap out.

Not long back, Floyd Mayweather, who beat Pacquaio in 2015, said, via BoxingNews24: \”He [Pacquiao] is very dangerous still.\”

Spence, who is currently at the peak of his powers, might be the favorite to win the fight in August, but someone of Pacquaio\’s quality should not be written off. With a sea of experience under his belt, the Filipino is more than capable of giving his opponent a run for his money.

Nevertheless, it is a highly-anticipated fight, one which fans can hardly wait for.

It will be interesting to see who comes out on top in Nevada.
