Do you happen to be left handed yourself?

Not a southpaw....

I'll still be paying for this one though.

Same here. Nice fight but............
I will tell you, Cotto looked much better in his last fight vs Marg. I was at the Garden for the fight and then watched the replay a week or so later....PBF will still take him apart...

The window for PAC and Floyd to fight each other is closing fast. If they don't fight eachother next well they should retire. I don't care who's fault it is, too much money on the line for them not to fight. I'm a Mayweather fan myself but these two fools just keep dodging each other.

Floyd will walk circles around Cotto.

looks like bradley-snitchiao has been signed.

Bradley like the majority of pacquiao opponents isn't coming off an impressive win in his most recent outing, but Bradley-pacquiao should be a good fight.

Tim will do better than expected, and people sleeping on this fight are missing out. One of manny's better opponent selections in recent years.

manny's limitations has been permanently highlighted recently. Bradley's hunger, determination, and decent Ring IQ will give manny trouble.

PAC by KO. Bradley isn't anything special.

No other fight right now makes sense other than MONEY VS PAC.

After that, boxing will be a dead zone for a while. The best rising star right now is Nonito Donaire but he's already 29 years old.

When Tyson was on his way out, there were so many stars already, IE De la Hoya, Mayweather, Mosley, etc

I don't trust Donaire at all. He reeks of Balco.

same but for different reasons. He doesn't have a complete skill set the way Mayweather, Hopkins, or Ward does.

Derek Gsora is one of the best things to happen to boxing in a long time. It only took him 2-3 days to make people crazy about heavyweight boxing, something the KBros couldn't do even though they been on top for years.

The IBF on Thursday banned former junior flyweight titlist Luis Lazarte from participating in any fight the organization is associated with following Lazarte's actions during a bout last Friday, when he threatened the referee and helped spark an ugly riot during which his opponent was assaulted.

Johnriel Casimero of the Philippines stopped Lazarte in the 10th round in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Lazarte's home country, to win the IBF's vacant interim 108-pound world title. However, Lazarte, who repeatedly fouled Casimero with head-butts, punches below the belt, and shots behind the head, and bit him at least twice, threatened referee Eddie Claudio in the sixth round.

After Claudio docked a point from Lazarte for blatant punches behind Casimero's head in the sixth round, Lazarte removed his mouthpiece and can clearly be heard (in comments translated from Spanish on the broadcast of Argentine network TyC) saying to Claudio, "Do you want to make it out of here alive?"

IBF president Daryl Peoples wrote to Osvaldo Bisbal, the president of the Argentina Boxing Federation, to inform him of the decision.

"There is one measure that we are taking into our own hands and that we will enforce," Peoples wrote. "As a result of Luis Lazarte threatening the life of referee Eddie Claudio while receiving a points deduction in the sixth round, Lazarte is banned from being involved in any capacity in any IBF-related fight that takes place in Argentina or around the world.

"I believe that I do not have to express to you that Lazarte's threat to Claudio, which can be clearly heard in the telecast, is completely unacceptable, should not be taken lightly and merits punishment. Behavior of this nature by a fighter is not and will not be tolerated by the IBF."

Casimero scored two knockdowns in the ninth round and was battering Lazarte in the 10th round when Claudio stepped in to halt the fight. As he was stopping the bout, spectators at ringside began throwing debris into the ring and eventually it became a full-scale riot -- the worst boxing has seen since one erupted at New York's Madison Square Garden in 1996 after heavyweight Andrew Golota was disqualified for repeatedly hitting Riddick Bowe below the belt in the first of their two fights.

During the riot, spectators climbed into the ring, and chairs and bottles were thrown into the ring, hitting multiple people. Casimero (16-2, 10 KOs) was assaulted; one of his corner men, Sean Gibbons, was hit in the head and suffered a broken rib; and Claudio was hit and needed stitches in his lip.

Peoples told Bisbal he needed to investigate the incident, even though Bisbal has reportedly been reluctant to do so.

"I take this opportunity to address you in regards to the deplorable acts of violence that transpired after the Lazarte-Casimero bout," Peoples wrote. "This type of violence has no place in a boxing match, or any sporting event for that matter, as it completely goes against the grain of what competition is about. Surely you agree to that. It is important that all of us in the boxing community, because this act in not exclusive to Argentina, utilize this experience as one to learn from and develop better ways to protect the perimeter around the ring and the people that are in it, while also [ensuring] the safety of all those attending a boxing match.

"Furthermore, I would like to know what steps have been taken with the local police department to bring those individuals that entered the ring and assaulted Mr. Casimero and his camp to justice. There are a number of individuals that can likely be identified in the video recording of the fight and who should be investigated through the proper legal channels. I expect that you will do what you can to further inform me on this matter."

The IBF's ban on Lazarte (49-11-2, 18 KOs), who has a history of breaking rules during his fights -- including biting multiple opponents -- may be moot. He is 40 and said after the fight he is considering retirement.

what's impressed me the most about mayweather is that he's been able to adjust his style since losing a good amount of his mobility in the ring. look at him in the marquez fight and compare that mayweather to the one that fought mosley and ortiz. his fundamentals are sound enough that he can probably dominate most 140-154 lbers for the next two years.

i'm excited for the rios-gamboa fight. i think he should have cleaned up the 126 division and fought juan manuel lopez and/or chris john first. depending on how he does, i like gamboa against broner or russell jr
