TYSON FURY THE HYPOCRITE PULLS OUT ON DAY OF FIGHT

Tyson Fury, the same man who mercilessly ridiculed David Haye and Dereck Chisora for pulling out of fights with injuries, has now done the very same thing himself. Three days ago, when Chisora pulled out of today's scheduled fight with a hand injury, Fury tweeted: "these 2 are the biggest pricks in boxing p*ssys, always knew dell was a sh*thouse. Disgrace to boxing." A very respectable replacement, Alexander Ustinov, signed on to replace Chisora against Fury, and Fury initially accepted the fight. But today, the day of the Manchester, England fight, the BBC reported that Fury's trainer (and uncle) Hughie Fury was hospitalized, and that Tyson refused to proceed with the fight. Lame! Boxingtalk might be a little more sympathetic had Fury not been such a consistent jerk to his opponents. But on behalf of all the disappointed fans, we have to call Fury a hypocrite.   --Scott Shaffer

BREAD'S BREAKDOWN OF GOLOVKIN-GEALE AND JENNINGS-PEREZ
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

How good is Gennady "GGG" Golovkin? How good is his trainer? You went up against his trainer in opposing corners. But he got Golovkin only 4 years ago. I also just noticed that Golovkin has 11 title defenses would you consider him a great fighter? What are your predictions for this weekend's HBO's fights between Golovkin and Daniel Geale and the heavyweights, Bryant Jennings vs. Mike Perez? 
Bread’s Response: GGG is extremely good. He is so good that he’s one BIG victory away from being a great fighter. He’s a great fighter in waiting. I hold him in very high regard. For my money if he doesn’t get a chance to fight a great fighter and he stays consistent and keeps beating the “best” available guy then that would make him a great fighter. He can be something special.

ROBERTO GARCIA GETS OFF DECK FOR BIG ESPN2 WIN
By Scott Shaffer

Roberto Garcia W10 Breidis Prescott... In Chicago, Roberto Garcia suffered a ninth-round knockdown but stormed back to dominate the tenth round against Colombia's Breidis Prescott. Both men's face told the tale of a close, rough welterweight fight, but it was clear Prescott was exhausted by the final bell, as he hung onto Garcia in an attempt to limit the damage. The judges scored it 96-93, 95-94 and 96-92 for Garcia. ESPN analyst Teddy Atlas agreed with the verdict, unofficially scoring it 96-93. The win ups Garcia's pro record to 36-3-1. Prescott falls to 27-6 and has never been able to duplicate the success he had when defeating Richar Abril and Amir Khan in back-to-back 2008 fights.

Caleb Truax W10 Derek Ennis... In the ESPN2 co-feature, Minnesota's best boxer, Caleb Truax notched a quality win, defeating Philadelphia's Derek Ennis via unanimous decision. Official scores were 99-90 and 97-93 (twice).  Truax, who suffered a cut over one of his eyes late in the middleweight bout, is now 24-1-2. Truax's lone loss came to a post-championship Jermain Taylor. Ennis, 24-5-1, deserves credit for going the distance after taking the fight on relatively short notice. source: espn2's friday night fights

 DAILY BREAD FRIDAY EDITION: (7-25-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

One of the first fights I remember watching was Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Pernell Whitaker (in 1993). I am still not over how the judges decided to call that a draw, unreal [Whitaker won at least eight or nine rounds clearly]. Anyway, I recently started to watch all Pernell's fights again and I could not believe how much pop he had in his punches. He had a lot more action fights then I realized. His fight with Roger Mayweather seemed like total chaos. Are there any fighters you go back and watch from your childhood that when you go back now you get a different impression of now that you know more about the sport?
Bread’s Response: It’s good to go back over your favorite fights at least once a year. I actually just watched the Whitaker vs Chavez fight. Sometimes the details of the fights go out of our memory and we just remember the overall conclusion. What stands out to me in that fight was how well Chavez started. He usually starts slow but he may have won the first two rounds from Whitaker until Pete caught his groove.

 GLEN TAPIA REPORTEDLY FAILS MEDICAL EXAM IN NEW YORK
By Scott Shaffer

Many boxing fans will recall the horiffic beating then-undefeated Glen Tapia took at the ands of James Kirkland last December. The junior middleweight was stopped in six, but his corner stood by idly while Tapia absorbed tremendous punishment in the fith and sixth rounds. Tapia rebounded with a win against Keenan Collins in June and was scheduled to fight Boyd Melson in Madison Square Garden on Saturday as part of the Gennady Golovkin-Daniel Geale undercard. Melson got injured and Salim Larbi of France was signed to fight Tapia instead. Today, it appears that Tapia has failed his medical tests and the fight is off. According to Melson's Facebook page:  "I pulled out of my fight last Thursday against Glen Tapia because I tore my rotator cuff. My family who were gonna fly in from Cali and Washington had time to cancel their flights, and I had time to refund everyone who bought tickets. Also, my main sparring/training partner was put in as a replacement to fight Tapia. So I went to weigh-in today to support my sparring partner, and Tapia failed his medical and the entire fight was called off. This means that had I never hurt myself, I would have found out today that I would not be fighting and my family would have spent money to be here and I would have not been able to refund the tickets." Under new commissioner David Berlin, New York has become extremely strict on medical exams since heavyweight Magomed Abdusalomov was nearly killed in a heavyweight fight last year.

HYLAND, MARTIN WIN IN NYC

Patrick Hyland TKO4 Noel Echevarria... At New York City's B.B. King Blues Club and Grill, Irish featherweight Patrick "The Punisher" Hyland defeated Noel Echevarria, the first time that Hyland had seen ring action in nearly two years. The result was a fourth-round technical knockout. The Irishman controlled the action against the southpaw Echevarria, picking up the pace in each round.  By the third round, Hyland was really pouring it on. With Echevarria taking heavy punishment, the referee called a halt to the contest at 0:45 seconds of the fourth round. Hyland improved to 28-1, while Echevarria drops his fourth straight and is now 11-4.
 
Charles Martin TKO3 Kertson Manswell... American heavyweight hopeful Charles Martin kept his undefeated record intact (18-0-1, 16 KOs) with a third round stoppage of Trinidad's Kertson Manswell (24-9). The former 2012 National PAL champion and 2012 National Golden Gloves runner-up controlled the action against the free-swinging Manswell, who did connect with a few haymakers that got Martin's attention.  But in the third, Martin dropped Manswell with a hard straight left hand from his southpaw stance. After three knockdowns, the contest was stopped. source for both results: dibella entertainment

 MAYWEATHER PROMOTIONS OBTAINS NEVADA LICENSE

According to respected boxing writer David Mayo on MLive.com, Mayweather Promotions has just been licensed as a promoter by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Reportedly, the vote to license Mayweather Promotions was unanimous. Mayweather is scheduled to fight Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas on September 13th. It had been announced that Golden Boy would be the promoter of record for the fight, which came as a surprise because Mayweather ally Richard Schaefer recently left Golden Boy. Now that his company is licensed, it should not come as a surprise if Mayweather terminates Golden Boy's contract to promote the September 13th. --Scott Shaffer

 DAILY BREAD MONDAY EDITION: (7-21-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Did you get a chance to see any of the press conferences for Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana II? Who do you favor in the rematch? I have talked to alot of people who tell me after watching the fight again, they see what you saw. A super close fight and a fight Maidana could have won. I also want to ask you about Floyd’s beef with TI the rapper. Do you think this is staged or real? And what do you make of the glove controversy. Does Maidana have a legitmate issue?
Bread’s Response: In the rock, paper, scissors of boxing, the pressure swarmer can usually do well with the pure boxer. Henry Armstrong and Harry Greb, the two best swarmers ever, always beat the boxers. If Maidana can get back in the same shape he was in for the first fight or better I think the fight will be super close again. This reminds me of Andre Ward vs. Sakio Bika. That was Ward’s toughest fight. Look at it on Youtube. Ward is clearly the better fighter. But that style of swarming, which is hitting anything, not just clean areas but all areas, roughhousing and being fully determined, can give any boxer problems.
