True, but was that due to it being an actual "good fight", or was it more of both fighters being of equal talent at this stage in their careers (both showing lack of talent during their slumps)?


Cano is coming in and going up. Mosley is diminished but still has a skill set. This will be great experience for Cano. One thing I noticed is that Mosley set up his right using the jab. the jab looked crisp with his dad training him. With Naseem I noticed he tended to punch awkward and looped his punches a lot. He would fire the right but would only use the jab as a range finder.

I needed help coming up with it to be honest.
Important sources have informed about the possibility that former world champion Antonio Margarito could return to boxing almost a year after announcing his retirement from the ring due to health issues. Now at age 35 and recently divorced, Margarito is targeting a big payday against countrymen Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Saul Alvarez.
margarito lol
Surprised by recent articles claiming his return to boxing ex World Champion Antonio Margarito has announced that there is absolutely no truth on a possible return to the sport or that he is suffering from financial difficulties due to a divorce. The Mexican fighter hasn't been in the ring since his December 2011 rematch loss to Miguel Cotto. He announced his retirement on June of last year. Currently, the 'Tijuana Tornado' is living in Los Angeles.

"I was surprised by several unfounded rumors regarding my current situation, including news on a return to boxing and supposedly a divorce settlement that has left me broke and with the need to return to boxing. In some cases, the information dealt with news of my return, and some unfounded news about a settlement. However, some tabloid media has gone further than that, spreading unfounded rumors that no one took the trouble to investigate fully," said Margarito.
Isn't he blind in one eye pretty much?

So what's coming up in the upcoming weeks?

Sounds like Andre Ward wants to fight Froch in the UK pretty bad... he knows that will be his biggest payday by far. Who the hell else would he fight? Also, he is a dope fighter and I have liked Ward for a long time but Froch is right. The "casual" fan will probably find Ward's style a little boring. He won't get into a Froch/Kessler type brawl.
