Broner banned from Uber

By TMZSports.com

Adrien Broner terrorized his Uber driver — and now he’s paying the price … he’s been BANNED from using the app ever again all because he’s the passenger from hell, TMZ Sports has learned. The boxing star captured his out-of-control ride on his own social media earlier this week — trying to turn up from the backseat when Drake and Travis Scott’s hit “Sicko Mode” started playing.

Broner leans over and unleashes a full-throated scream right in the driver’s face — before grabbing the volume knob and turning it to the max. Then he started wildly dancing — while the driver tried to focus on driving in the rain. Continue reading “Broner banned from Uber”

Fujioka-Sanchez in WBA female 112lb unification bout

Report, Photo by Joe Koizumi

Japanese female legend, five-division world titlist, WBA regular flyweight champ Naoko Fujioka (17-2, 7 KOs) will face WBA interim ruler Irma Sanchez (30-7-1, 8 KOs), from Mexico, tomorrow (Friday) in Tokyo, Japan. The 43-year-young Naoko, managed by former WBA middleweight champ Shinji Takehara, acquired her fifth belt as she unanimously defeated Yokasta Valle on points to win the vacant WBO 108-pound belt, but she decided to renounce it because of her incapability of making the weight again.
Irma Naoko2
Fujioka, therefore, made up her mind to remain in the flyweight category to defend her WBA 112-pound throne. The WBA ordered Naoko to make a mandatory defense against the interim champ Irma Sanchez, 30, (handled by her manager/husband Hector Garcia) who had gained the interim belt by winning a split nod over Brenda Ramos in October of the previous year.

GGG’s Trainer: Canelo an insult to the sport!

By TMZSports.com

Gennady Golovkin’s camp is coming out swingin’ at Canelo Alvarez — aka CCC — “Canelo Con Carne.” Yeah, it’s a shot at the boxer’s positive PED test, which Canelo blamed on tainted beef he ate in Mexico.

GGG’s famous trainer Abel Sanchez ain’t buyin’ Canelo’s excuse — telling us straight-up the guy’s a cheater who’s a disgrace to the sport of boxing. “He did some things that were insulting,” Sanchez says … “insulting not only to the sport, to the fans…we feel that an athlete at that level has got to be more cognizant of what is allowed and not allowed and for him to make the excuse that he made I think that it’s insulting.” Continue reading “GGG’s Trainer: Canelo an insult to the sport!”

Eric Gomez: There could be Canelo-GGG 3

By Hesiquio Balderas

Eric Gómez, president of Golden Boy Promotions, talked about many subjects, staying with the media long after the final press conference was over and giving interview after interview. Gomez had a few insights regarding the possible future of Canelo.

“Obviously I believe Canelo is going to win, he is a more complete fighter, his skill set is better than Golovkin’s but this is a very hard fight for both fighters,” said the president of GBP.

Regarding a third fight between the two best middleweights in the world, Gomez said “Anything can happen, but if the fight ends in a quick KO there is no chance of a third fight and if this fight goes the distance, if it’s exciting, there is a very strong possibility of a third fight no doubt about it!”

Ramirez-Orozco Final Press Conference

There was mutual respect rather than trash talk at the final press conference on Wednesday for Jose Ramirez’s WBC super lightweight title defense against Antonio Orozco, Friday at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.

Who imagined Matsumoto’s defeat in his comebacking fight after an unsuccessful world title shot? Formerly world rated Ryo Matsumoto (21-3, 19 KOs), 126, had failed to win the WBA 122-pound belt from Daniel Roman in his previous appearance this February, and engaged in his first bout since against a novice named Ryo Sagawa (5-1, 3 KOs), 126, who greatly stunned the audience by halting Matsumoto at 1:30 of the third round in a scheduled eight beneath a WBC bantam eliminator between Takuma Inoue and Mark John Yap on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan.
