 TIME TO END BRADLEY-ATLAS PARTNERSHIP?
By Michael Herron

On April 9, 2016, what was billed as the final match of Manny Pacquiao’s luminous career came to a close without the expected fanfare. Much like Floyd Mayweather’s supposed retirement in 2015, the boxing world is not truly convinced Pacquiao has left the sport for good. People were so doubtful that this was the last we would see of Pacquiao that his supposed final performance was not the main narrative of the night.  Instead, the boxing media instead was focused on Timothy Bradley’s alliance with new head trainer Teddy Atlas.

 PULEV AND CHISORA HAVE TO BE PULLED APART AT PRESSER


Press Release:  Kubrat Pulev (22-1, 12 KOs) and Dereck Chisora (25-5, 17 KOs) almost came to blows at today’s final pre-fight press conference ahead of their European heavyweight title fight, set for Saturday night at the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany. During the customary head-to-head photographs, Chisora lived up to his bad boy reputation by grabbing Pulev by the neck and attempting to pull him to the ground. “I’m not messing around,” said Chisora. “No more Mr. Nice Guy, I’m going to take Pulev to places he’s never been before, and I’m going to make him give up. He’s got nothing I’ve not seen before, and he’s never fought anyone like me. I can tell he’s nervous. He’s out of his depth and he’s going to get knocked out.” Pulev was unimpressed by the British boxers antics and promised to get his revenge in the ring. “I will cause him great pain on Saturday night,’’ said the 34 year-old. ‘’He does not intimidate me. He can talk all he wants now, but this will not help him in the ring.”

 JACK ROBBED OF VICTORY, BUTE ESCAPES WITH MAJORITY DRAW
By G. Leon

PBC gives boxing fans evening of knockouts, late night of robberies!

Badou Jack D12 Lucian Bute: The decisions went from bad to worse on Showtime tonight. Over the course of the first nine rounds Badou Jack dominated Lucian Bute. He landed a plethora of power shots to Bute's body (many appeared to be uncalled low-blows) and head. He was pitching a masterful shutout. Just when it appeared that the corner would be best served stopping the bout, Jack tired and Bute swept rounds ten through twelve, but it was nowhere near enough for Bute to have a chance of anything but a unanimous decision loss. Unfortunately two of the judges missed a dominant performance tonight as Bute escaped with a majority draw. Official scores were 117-111 and an inexplicable 114-114 twice. Boxingtalk scored the bout 117-111. Source: Showtime.

DEGALE SQUEAKS BY MEDINA WITH CONTROVERSIAL DECISION
By G. Leon

James DeGale UD12 Rogelio Medina: We have an early candidate for fight of the year and unfortunately, worst decision of the year. Champions have historically gotten the benefit of the doubt in close fights, but whenever a challenger clearly fights twelve rounds to take the champions title by throwing almost twice as many punches, he should not be denied his victory. Although he was thoroughly outworked, DeGale somehow landed more punches according to Showtime's punchstats. This fight was all about DeGale's skill versus Medina's will. Medina will was in command early with his aggression, then it was DeGale's skill, specifically his uppercuts that began to repeatedly find their home in the middle rounds. In the championship rounds, one might expect for class to show over time as it usually does in boxing, however on this night it was Medina who appeared to be the stronger man going down the stretch. Official scores were 115-113 and a ridiculous 117-111 twice. Boxingtalk scored it a CLEAN 115-113 Medina. Source: Showtime.

BERTO GETS REVENGE STOPS ORTIZ IN 4
By G. Leon

Andre Berto TKO4 Victor Ortiz: Andre Berto got his revenge of Victor Ortiz in emphatic fashion tonight, stopping the former two division title holder after four competitive rounds. An accidental clash of heads opened a nasty gash on the top of Ortiz's head causing the blood to pour down onto his face in the opening round. In round two Ortiz landed a straight left hand that sent Berto to the deck in the closing seconds of round two. Round three was another very good round for Ortiz, who likely won each of the first three rounds. In round four Berto landed a right uppercut that dropped Ortiz hard. He made it to his feet but was on shaky legs. Berto dropped Ortiz again moments later. Ortiz beat the count but was unresponsive when Jack Reis asked him if he wanted to continue. Official time of stoppage 1:14. Source: PBC on Fox

 WILLIAMS CRUSHES RODRIGUEZ IN SLUGFEST
By G. Leon

Thomas Williams Jr TKO2 Edwin Rodriguez: In a fight that was bombs away from the opening bell, Thomas Williams and Edwin Rodriguez gave boxing fans a slugfest for the ages. Williams, 20-1 (14) got the better of Rodriguez in round one and appeared to hurt him at least once. In round two Rodriguez badly hurt Williams with an overhand right hand that likely would have dropped him had the ropes not held him up. Williams weathered the storm and both boxers landed hellacious shots until the closing seconds of the round when Williams landed a powerful two punch combination that sent Rodriguez to the deck. He beat the count, but was on shaky legs and the referee decided to stop the bout even though it was the end of the round. Official time of stoppage was 2:59. Source: PBC

Lara came out of his corner like a bat out of hell, throwing furious combinations that overwhelmed the faded Montiel. Montiel was dropped hard with a right hook in the opening seconds. He made it to his feet but was on very wobbly legs. Montiel was dropped four times in total, with the final knockdown sent him crashing face first to the canvas forcing the referee to stop the bout without a count. Official time of stoppage was 1:37.

TARVER LOSES BOXING LICENSE
By Scott Shaffer

On February 17, 2016, [former world light heavyweight champion] Antonio Tarver was notified of [New Jersey boxing] commissioner Larry Hazzard's intent to revoke his license as a professional boxer and be fined in the amount of $25,000.   This intent to impose disciplinary action arose due to responses on Mr. Tarver's licensing application regarding child support obligations. In addition, Mr. Tarver was questioned on this specific issue by agency counsel Nick Lembo while under oath on February 11, 2016.

After providing Mr. Tarver with [multiple] notices of the requested hearing date (as well as notice to two counsels), this agency issued required notice of an open public meeting scheduled for April 25, 2016. On April 25, 2016, the Board decided to uphold the Commissioner’s intended disciplinary action. Be advised that the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board has revoked Mr. Tarver's license as a professional boxer and has fined him in the amount of $25,000. We have notified Fight Fax, the designated central records agency, of this action by writing. The agency has no further comment on this matter at the current time.  ​
