BONUS BREAD: EXPLODING BOXING'S BIGGEST MYTHS
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

What are some of the biggest myths in boxing history that get repeated by uninformed fans? I am tired of getting into arguments with idiots because I repeat some of your logic.
Bread’s Response: Haha, you have to stop arguing bro. Some people are just too lazy to research on their own so they repeat nonsense because nonsense was told to them. I will start in chronological order if I can...

 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.

RIGONDEAUX-LOOKNONGYANGTOY ENDS SOMEWHAT LIKE MAYWEATHER-ORTIZ
By Scott Shaffer

Guillermo Rigondeaux KO1 Sod Looknongyangtoy... In Macao, China, world 122-pound champion Guillermo Rigondeaux shed his reputation as a boring boxer by knocking out Thailand's Sod looknongyangtoy a/k/a Sod Kokietgym in the first round. In the first round, the Cuban Rigondeaux accidentally headbutted the Thai, sending Looknongyangtoy to one knee. When Looknongyangtoy got up, he extended his glove towards the incoming Rigonedeaux. Although he touched gloves, Rigondeaux immediately fired a lightning quick combination before the Thai boxer reset his defense. The combination landed and Looknongyangtoy wnet down for a ten count. The ending was reminiscient of, but not quite as flagrant, as Floyd Mayweather's 2100 knockout of Victor Ortiz. Unlike Mayweather, Rigondeaux did not deceive his opponent into dropping his guard, but both Ortiz and Looknongyangtoy failed to observe boxing's cardinal rule of defense: protect yourself at all times. Rigondeaux, who has been criticized for being boring, was anything but boring in tonight's brief appearance. His promotional contract with Top Rank is up, and tonight's win should add interest to a man whose skills make him a top five pound-for-pounder. source:

GOLOVKIN, GEALE DISCUSS NEXT WEEKEND'S MIDDLEWEIGHT BATTLE

Press Release: Question: Daniel, last time you were on American TV, you dropped Darren Barker but lost the decision.  How do you recover from that?  DANIEL GEALE: Firstly, the Barker fight was frustrating - knocking him down in the sixth and not getting the decision, but you have to take it on the chin and come back from that.  I didn't dwell on it too long.
