There has always been something about food trucks that has been appealing.

Defined as a “large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food”, a food truck is just like a mobile restaurant. Whether you are looking for something savory or sweet, no matter what time of the day and depending on your location, you are likely to find a food truck nearby that can satisfy your needs.

On Saturday night, May 6, Mexican superstar and junior middleweight world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez dominated an outmatched former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. over twelve one-sided rounds. Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KO’s) was far too strong, poised, and precise throughout their HBO pay per view matchup inside of the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

With over 20,500 partisans in attendance for another wild Cinco De Mayo weekend, Alvarez proved himself to be far superior in every category, often tagging Chavez with sharp blows. Following twelve rounds, scores of 120-108 were read across the board for the Jalisco-born fighter, who continues to cement himself as the sport’s biggest star.

I remember seeing Jessie Magdaleno when he was still just an amateur, and even back then it was easy to spot his potential as a future prizefighter.

Fast forward to Saturday, April 22, and Magdaleno continues to settle into his status as a reigning champion following a second-round TKO victory over challenger Adeilson Dos Santos in Carson, Calif. that saw him successfully defend his WBO junior featherweight title for the first time.

On Saturday night, WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko successfully defended his WBO junior lightweight title with a 9th round TKO over former champion Jason Sosa.

Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KO’s), who defeated his third former champion in a row, was a little too much for Sosa (20-2-4, 15 KO’s), who never stopped trying despite being outmatched. Following the ninth round, Sosa’s corner wisely elected to halt the action in the face of Lomachenko’s dominance.

Over the weekend, inside of the MGM Grand National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md., WBO junior lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko successfully defended his title on HBO with a 9th-round TKO over former champion Jason Sosa.

Following the match, two other fighters in the 130-pound class, IBF champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis and contender Tevin Farmer, could be seen getting into a heated argument. Farmer (24-4-1, 5 KO’s) has been calling for a match with Davis (17-0, 16 KO’s) on social media for quite some time, and things finally came to a head on Saturday.

A few days ago we posted that Cruiserweight prospect Yahu “Rock” Blackwell would be fighting in Tijuana, Mexico against Alvarez Vasquez.

Sure enough, last night Blackwell would end up scoring a 2nd round knockout, albeit against a different opponent. A last-minute switch saw Benjamin Hernandez jump in to face off with Blackwell, but he wasn’t able to offer much resistance.

I first started hearing about Yahu Blackwell earlier this year and I admit that he was, at first, a bit of enigma to me.

But as I began finding out more information about him, I soon realized he has a story to tell and is looking to make a big run in the boxing game in 2017.

Respected former pro boxer/referee Joe Cortez spoke to me about his connection to Yahu a few months back in Las Vegas and I’ve been keeping up with the Hebrew fighter ever since.

Gibson (16-0-1, 7 KO’s) held camp in Las Vegas, at the nearby RJJ Fight Academy, and is in obvious excellent shape heading into the biggest test of his career. So too does Orozco (25-0, 16 KO’s) look to be ready to go, and there was no real animosity as the two faced off with on another.

On Saturday, May 6, former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will play the role of underdog when he faces off with fellow Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. in an HBO pay per view attraction.

Chavez (50-2-1, 32 KO’s) and Canelo (48-1-1, 34 KO’s) figure to give fireworks, and with the match taking place at a catch weight of 164.5 pounds, there are those intrigued whether or not Junior can make the weight. It’s been over four years, dating back to Sept. of 2012 when he faced Sergio Martinez, that Chavez has weighed under 165 pounds.

At the end of the year 2016, it was discovered by Spotify that the top artists of the year included rappers such as Drake and Kanye West, pop stars such Justin Bieber, R&B stylings of Rihanna, and even electro-pop from Twenty One Pilots. Hip-hop/Rap and Pop music continues to take over the award ceremonies, the radio, streaming sites, and the ears of many Americans today. My question is, where has the rock music genre gone to; the music that would get your head banging as you belt out the lyrics feeling invincible?

The Nielsen 2016 survey said that rock music was more successful than any other genre in album sales with bands like Metallica, Disturbed, Bon Jovi and may other bands. What seems apparent is how we do not see these bands very often make the headlines that the top five Spotify artists make. Has the rock genre become so nonexistent that bands like Twenty One Pilots are filling in the blank for this category now? I believe that rock music is not buried in the ground gathering dust but just living in obscurity because a new generation of people are seeking to hear something different than previous generations wanted to hear.

On Saturday night, March 18, WBA/WBC/IBF world middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin defeated former world champion Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs via unanimous decision after twelve rounds inside of Madison Square Garden in New York.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KO’s) got off to a cautious start through three rounds, but was able to register a knockdown of Jacobs (32-2, 29 KO’s) in the fourth round courtesy of a pair of right hands. Jacobs wasn’t rattled however, as he picked himself up and fought courageously the rest of the match, often troubling Golovkin with movement and sharp-punching in the face of one of boxing’s most dangerous punchers.
