 ROMAN GONZALEZ IMPROVES TO 41-0

Roman Gonzalez TKO6 Rocky Fuentes… Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez of Nicaragua made his case to be the best flyweight in the world by knocking out Filipino Rocky Fuentes in Japan. A three-division champion,  Gonzalez knocked Fuentes down in the sixth round and continued to dish out punishment until the fight was stopped. Gonzalez, who deserves top ten pound-for-pound consideration, is now 41-0. Gonzalez may be the world's best 112 pounder but the lineal world champion remains Juan Francisco Estrada.

BREADMAN'S PACQUIAO VS. ALGIERI BREAKDOWN
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

How much of an impact will Manny Pacquiao's footwork be in his fight this weekend against Chris Algieri?? I am having a hard time with every one playing it safe and saying Algieri can cause him trouble with his length. Pacquiao has always been able to close distant quickly and even when he gets off balance, he still throws hard shots. Pacquiao injured Tim Bradley's ankles twice and Bradley is a very gifted athlete, maybe not the most gifted boxer, but it was still impressive. I don't think Pacquiao will get a KO, but I do think he wins decisively. --DJ
Bread’s Response: I am picking Manny to win the fight also but I don’t have a hard time with people picking Algieri. Pacquiao is older and he undertrained for the first fight against Timothy Bradley. That’s still in everyone’s minds.

 DAILY BREAD THURSDAY EDITION:(11-20-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Bread, you mentioned that the "Cold War" between Golden Boy and Top Rank, the two biggest promoters in America, started with the Mayweather-Pacquiao issue. I know everyone is at fault. But do you think the Cold War was used to protect Floyd Mayweather? I mean it gave him  a "built-in" excuse to duck Manny Pacquiao by refusing to get involved with Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum. First he said he wouldn't fight on Arum show. Then there's additional bad blood between Bob Arum and Al Haymon. It kinda gave him an out based on the HBO/Showtime, Arum/Haymon rifts. Lol-- Mitch
