CHRISTIAN CARTO: I'M READY FOR A STEP-UP FIGHT NOW
By G. Leon

What's the latest and greatest? How's everything been going in camp? It's been great, really good. I'm ready to go on February 8th. I know my opponent Victor Ruiz [22-10] is a tough guy. He's a southpaw and he's not bad, he's a good fighter. I've seen a few clips on him. This is you sixth or seventh eight-round fight, when do you plan on graduating to tens? I'm comfortable doing ten rounds right now. I've been sparring ten rounds for a long time, but I'm comfortable either way. Whenever my team wants me to move up I will.

KEITH THURMAN: THIS IS MY GET BACK YEAR!
By G. Leon

Must-read interview with the WBA welterweight champion

It's been a long time coming and you're finally back in the ring next Saturday night against Josesito Lopez. How has everything gone in camp? What can we expect to see from you this weekend? It's been amazing man! This has really been the longest layoff of my career. I didn't know what to expect as an athlete. I always figured that I'd be able to handle it and get back in shape, but it's been a nice little learning experience. I'm in shape, I feel good and it's tremendous to feel athletic again after sitting on my butt with injuries and then trying to get back in the gym. With getting re-injured, it re-sparked a little depression that maybe I'm not going to be boxing anymore. Did I really accomplish all I had to give to the sport? I was emotionally up and down and thankfully my doctor said that I will be back in the ring and here we are. Josesito Lopez is a game fighter that's been in the sport and those who know boxing know what he has done. He pulled a big upset in one of his best performances against Victor Ortiz. I'm just happy to be back man. We got a beautiful new network, Fox, there's just a lot to be excited about and I look forward to Saturday night.

OLD MANNY PACQUIAO STILL FAR TOO MUCH OF A PROBLEM FOR BRONER
By G. Leon

Manny Pacquiao UD12 Adrien Broner: At forty years old boxing's only eight division champion Manny Pacquiao, 61-7-2 (39KO), made it look easy against Adrien Broner, who once again, was extremely reluctant to let his hands go. Broner, 33-4-1 (24KO), never really attempted to take the lead or work the body in any shape form or fashion. If Broner landed double digit punches in any of the twelve rounds this scribe would be surprised. Pacquiao. After 12 rounds punch stats had Broner landing only 50 punches to Pacquiao in this immediately forgettable bout. Pacquiao never scored any knockdowns but did have Broner in trouble in the the seventh and ninth. For some reason Broner celebrated the final bell and seemed surprised when Pacquiao was named the victor. To make matters worse Broner proclaimed victory during his post fight interview with Jim Gray. Official scores were 117-111, 116-112 twice and it wasn't that close.  Source: Showtime PPV

BROWNE EASILY HANDLES JACK IN FIGHT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED

Marcus Browne UD12 Badou Jack: Undefeated light heavyweight contender Marcus Browne, 23-0 (16KO), made easy work of Badou Jack, 21-2-3 (13KO), in the co-main event to the Pacquiao-Broner mega-fight. Browne was in control well before an accidental clash of heads opened up a nasty two and half inch gash in the middle of Jack's forehead in the seventh round. By round ten referee Tony Weeks looked like he decapitated someone. Browne's versatile attack had the former super middleweight champion out of sorts as the Swede did little other than come forward with his hands in his pockets. Official scores were 117-110, 116-111, 119-108. Source: Showtime PPV
