The kickoff press conference for the September 14th Floyd Mayweather-Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez super fight was held on Monday afternoon in New York and there was a large turnout in advance of one of the biggest fights in years.

At 22 years old, the WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Alvarez finds himself a clear underdog heading into the match yet he seems completely comfortable with the situation.

Speaking to various members of the media during a roundtable-style discussion, the young titlist from Jalisco, Mexico brushed off the notion that the magnitude of the event may get to him in the coming months.

“I’m ready for this fight,” Alvarez stated. “I’m going to be ready for the pressure. I’m a very serious person. I take everything very serious and Floyd can do whatever he wants; he’s not going to take me out of my game plan.”

By Chris Robinson

Having all but announced himself as boxing’s torchbearer once Floyd Mayweather decides to make his exit from the sport, Adrien Broner is constantly going to be scrutinized for his actions inside of a prize ring.

So it’s not surprising that Broner is catching a little flack from his last performance this Saturday night, where he won a split-decision victory over a very determined Paulie Malignaggi inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Despite Broner claiming a world title in a 3rd division at the age of 23 by securing the WBA welterweight bauble, the fact that he wasn’t able to steamroll through Malignaggi is something that caused his most ardent critics to speak out.

Giving his opinion of the fight, former world champion Brandon Rios, a man who has traded several verbal barbs with Broner in recent times, actually seemed indifferent.

06BRONER edges MALIGNAGGI

By Chris Robinson

In a fight that was a little tougher than most expected, Adrien Broner won a split-decision over Paulie Malignaggi inside of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday night, becoming successful in his bid to become a three-division world champion at the age of 23.

Due to a spirited effort from Malignaggi (32-5, 7 KO’s), who never seemed to stop moving and punching in bunches despite his lack of pop, Broner (27-0, 22 KO’s) appeared to be deadlocked with the Brooklyn native over the first half of the fight. As the action wore on, Broner’s precise and more powerful punches began to find their mark as he marched towards victory.

Shortly after the dust had settled from Broner’s latest triumph, longtime HBO analyst Larry Merchant, never one to hold back his thoughts, weighed in and admitted he was a bit taken aback by how the clash played out.
