2016 has been an admittedly forgettable year thus far within the fight community. From fans to promoters, every active participant seems to be licking their respective wounds well into the final quarter of the fiscal year.

With less than one month remaining until the historic battle of Light Heavyweights, featuring current WBA, IBF, and WBO champion Sergey Kovalev against former lineal 168 pound champ Andre Ward, the Krusher's former mentor and elite level trainer Abel Sanchez gave his pre-fight prediction for the November 19 meeting.

Eight division world champion and Philippines Senator Manny Pacquiao is back in the United States to make the final preparations for his latest challenge against current WBO Welterweight titlist Jessie Vargas.

It would seem as though the highly anticipated, dream Heavyweight match-up between Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua is exactly that...just a dream...at least within the calendar year of 2016.

It was reported last Friday, October 14, that former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. was back in the gym, sparring publicly for the first time since announcing his retirement in September of 2015.

In less than three weeks, future Hall of Fame fight legend Manny Pacquiao will enter the professional ring for the 67th time, as he takes on current WBO Welterweight title holder Jessie Vargas at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Although the sport of boxing is slowly but surely moving on without Floyd Mayweather, one can't help but wonder if Floyd will be content seeing someone like Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin bask the sport's limelight while becoming the pastime's primary ambassador.

Ring legend Manny Pacquiao will attempt to win his tenth overall world title on November 5, as he challenges the very confident incumbent champion, Jessie Vargas, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 
Will Floyd Mayweather Jr. ever make his triumphant return to the ring and surpass the late Rocky Marciano's hallowed and revered record of 49 wins without a single loss on his resume?

Senator Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines will be gracing the light-blue canvas once again on November 5.
