By Chris Robinson

If you are a fighter, one of the most important things you can focus on is your activity in the ring. For Mayweather Promotions’ own Lanell Bellows, he is eager to get back in the ring next month, as he will be fighting July 21 at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s a quick turnaround for Bellows (17-2-2, 10 KO’s), a super middleweight with a mean punch and a tireless work ethic; he fought this past May 12 inside of Sam’s Town in Las Vegas, settling for a technical draw with Naim Terbunja after a clash of heads caused a head cut that prematurely ended their matchup.

With another fight lined up, we were able to speak with Bellows about a lot of things going on in his life and career, including his ring return, how training at the Mayweather Boxing Club has been, how his children help inspire him, and much more.

By Vitali Shaposhnikov

The hurricane of drama that followed the Mayweather vs. Pacquio fight was almost expected, as these things never end on a good note.

Aside from the numerous lawsuits, Pacquiao had exposed a serious injury at the post fight press conference, stating that he had to fight with an injured shoulder, limiting his abilities in the ring. At first it seemed like that was his only announcement following the bout, which in itself is a very powerful statement.
