No...eight division world titlist and Philippines Senator Manny Pacquiao will not be fighting Gennady Golovkin anytime soon.

It's official...former Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, is back in the hurt business.

In the boxing universe, not all promoters, managers, trainers and fighters get along...the paying customers often prefer it that way.

Immediately after Canelo Alvarez captured the WBO Junior Middleweight on September 17, by stopping incumbent title holder Liam Smith with a vicious body shot, Golden Boy Promotions founder Oscar De la Hoya dropped an unexpected bomb on the media in attendance at the post-fight press conference, announcing an eight figure offer made to Gennady Golovkin for a potential fight deal with his Mexican superstar.

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.
