COMPARING MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO TO HOLYFIELD-TYSON I
By Tommy Canez

When I heard the recent announcement that Evander "The Real Deal" Holyfield will participate in a charity sparring session against former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, I thought about how Holyfield defied the odds in boxing time after time. Specifically, one of Holyfield's most memorable bouts was his epic 1996 upset of Mike Tyson (the first of two Holyfield-Tyson fights, both won by Holyfield).  Just as Holyfield once went up against and defeated boxing's ultimate villain, Mike Tyson, Manny Pacquiao is now gearing up to take on boxing's current ultimate villain, Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd. Thinking back on Holyfield's upset of Tyson, I cannot help but think how Pacquiao has vast similarities to Holyfield going into the biggest fight of his life.

 BROCK LESNAR CHOOSES WWE OVER MMA

Brock Lesnar, the former UFC heavweight champion, has chosen professional wrestling over mixed martial arts. Lesnar's contract with the WWE was about to expire, and he was being courted by the UFC to return to MMA, but Lesnar chose to remain in the scripted world of professional wrestling. While UFC athletes train for months and fight only a couple of times a year, pro wrestlers can have dozens of bouts as the action is scripted. Now 37 years old, Lesnar is the only person to have won championships in NCAA college wrestling (for University of Minnesota), MMA and pro wrestling. He won the UFC championship in 2009 but was sidelined by diverticulitis. An MMA superfight between Lesnar and Fedor Emilanenko never materialized. -Scott Shaffer

 MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO COMMENTARY: WHY THE $5M PENALTY IS A FALSE FLAG OPERATION
By Ben Dean

The boxing media was abuzz last week with stories written about a so-called $5 million dollar penalty in the event of a failed doping test by Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather, who will fight each other on May 2nd in Las Vegas.  In boxing, every so often a non-story becomes a story and media outlets run with the non-story without doing any due diligence. This time, Pacquiao's advisor Michael Koncz came forward with a non-issue that the media promptly reported on and ate up like hot cakes even though Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, had already went on record to put the issue to rest.

 41 YEAR-OLD EX-CHAMP FANA GETS BIG WIN IN SOUTH AFRICA

Mzonke Fana W12 
Koos Sibiya... 
South Africa's Mzonke Fana, who had two reigns as the IBF 130-pound champion, defeated countryman Koos Sibiya in the same weight class over the weekend. 
In a close and competitive fight, Fana used his straight punches to score points, especially his jab, and mostly counter-punched, while Sibiya was the aggressor and tried to overwhelm his veteran opponent by putting him under constant pressure. 
After twelve rounds of boxing, two judges had Fana ahead by 116-115, while the third saw it in favor of Sibya, 115-114. The 41 year-old 
Fana turned pro in March 1994 and is now 34-7.
Sibiya, the reigning Gauteng provincial champion and undefeated in his previous eight bouts, drops to 16-9-4, but deserves other big opportunities in the future.

Mfusi Maxhayi TKO2 Mxolisi Nombewu... 
Also on the card, Mfusi Maxhayi (10-5-1) couldn't make the bantamweight limit, but he fought overweight and defeated Mxolisi Nombewu (6-6-1). R
eferee Alan Matakane stepped in to stop the onslaught at 1:03 of the second round.

 SULLIVAN BARRERA CALLS OUT S. MONAGHAN, T. WILLIAMS

Press Release: 
Cuban light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera (15-0) is growing frustrated by his inability to land a top-level opponent. He says he is willing to step up against any of the top contenders in his division.  
"I'm losing my patience trying to get a big fight. I know my manager and my promoter Main Events are doing their best and are keeping me busy but I want to make my move this year," said Barrera.  
Barrera's team says it has tried to get him fights with other undefeated light heavyweights with no success.  They say they
 challenged Seanie Monaghan on Twitter and both he and his promoter publicly acknowledged they were willing to make the fight but then went silent.  
Thomas Williams is another one who was called out on Twitter.  He said he wanted to fight but later on he said, "to contact Al Haymon, he handles all my business."
 The 33-year-old feels that he just needs one fight against an upper level opponent to be ready for a title shot.  
"Look, us Cuban fighters have a lot of amateur experience so we don't need a lot of seasoning. Give me one top 20 guy and I'm ready for a title.
