While preparing for his "legacy" fight against Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, which will take place at a sold-out O2 Arena in London, England, current IBF Welterweight titlist Kell Brook has been working meticulously to put forth a career defining performance on September 10.
While recently conducting a final media workout at the Summit Gym in Big Bear Lake, California, Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin was displaying more than just his skills in the ring to some of the visiting press.
In less than three months, current WBO Welterweight champion Jessie Vargas will finally get his opportunity to show the world what he's made of.
Now that Manny Pacquiao has retracted his decision to retire from the sport of boxing, longtime nemesis and current promoter Floyd Mayweather Jr. was asked about the Pacman's motivation to continue fighting at age 37.
When the biggest name in boxing, Floyd Mayweather Jr., officially announced his retirement from the sport in September of last year, very few fight fans and scribes believed it.
This past Thursday, August 25, Floyd "Money" Mayweather released a message on his Instagram account, which showed the self-proclaimed "TBE" working out in front of a healthy number of supporters:
With just two weeks remaining until universally recognized Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin takes on undefeated Welterweight title holder Kell Brook in front of a capacity crowd at the sold-out O2 Arena in London, England, many within the boxing community are starting to wonder whether or not the 5 to 1 betting underdog can pull-off the massive upset.
Future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao will be gracing the squared circle once again on November 5, opposite Jessie Vargas at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. And while the soon to be 38 year old fighter is seemingly well past his respective fighting prime, the Pacman is still fighting at an elite level, as was evidenced in his impressive points victory over former two-division world champion Timothy Bradley in April of this year.
After landing the biggest fight of his professional career, one would assume that Jessie Vargas would be overjoyed with the amount of exposure and financial gain that traditionally comes with facing a boxing icon and a future Hall of Famer like eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao.
