When it was announced that WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez would be defending his title against former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan, it was met with much surprise.

With so much talk talk immediately following the matchup, it was only natural to get some thoughts on the contest.

2016 should pan out to be a big year for J’Leon Love.

In 2015 Love got his career back on track with three victories, over Scott Sigmon in March, Jason Escalera in June, and Marcus Upshaw in September. Those wins came on the heels of his first career defeat in August of 2014 against Rogelio “Porky” Medina.

There are always new faces emerging inside of any top gym across the globe and the Mayweather Boxing Club is no different.

A few weeks back I crossed paths with budding featherweight prospect Jayvon Garnett, from Cincinatti, Oh. Sporting a 3-0 record with three knockouts, Garnett is low-key figure inside of the gym and he’s far more into his work than talking, so he was easy to slightly overlook at first.

The first time I spotted Keith ‘Mighty Lion’ Jordan Jr. I knew the kid had something special inside of him.

Just eight years old at the time and in his first year of boxing, Jordan captured a state championship at the junior golden gloves to get ranked #2 in the world at 50 pounds and he is getting ready to return for an encore this weekend at 9 years old as he eyes another belt.

It’s been a few years now that Hustle Boss has been in the trenches with UK star and top-flight junior welterweight contender Ashley “Treasure” Theophane.

Around the time we first started corresponding with Theophane, around early 2012 I would reckon, he was in town for some training at the Mayweather Boxing Club in hopes of keeping his career alive. Theophane was then an unsigned free agent with a checkered record and there was no clear direction on where his career was heading.

It’s been pretty special to watch the career progression of young Devin Haney.

Still just 16 years old, Haney is looking to make the transition from amateur standout to budding professional but with nothing concrete lined up, he simply continues to sharpen his skills day after day.

Floyd Mayweather is still less than two weeks removed from his official retirement, as the Grand Rapids native insists he is done with the sport of boxing following his 49th professional victory over Andre Berto on Sep. 12 in Las Vegas.

Mayweather bested Berto over 12 rounds, capturing a unanimous decision by scores of 120-108, 118-1110, and 117-111 inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Now 49-0 as a professional with 26 knockouts behind him, Mayweather closed the final bout of his six-fight deal with SHOWTIME by defeating Berto and he presently has no obligations to get back into the ring.

With Floyd Mayweather’s unanimous decision victory over Andre Berto now in our rear-views, the boxing world will not turn its attention to the next wave of big events on the horizon.

And while there are surely still a bevy of top-flight performers left in the sport in the wake of Mayweather’s retirement, there is no bigger showdown on the horizon than the Nov. 21 clash between WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and former junior middleweight titlist Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

For bantamweight contender and WBO #6 ranked Alexis Santiago, new doors are beginning to open.

It’s been about four years since Santiago (18-3-1, 8 KO’s) walked through the doors of the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nev. and the 24-year old hasn’t left anything to waste during his training in that time.

Having won his last seven bouts, Santiago’s spirits are as high as ever with the recent news of his signing with Mayweather Promotions. The Phoenix native’s first assignment under his new promoter is a Sept. 8 date in Hollywood, Calif. againstĀ Fernando Lumacad from the Philippines.
