Image result for santa cruz vs mares 2

On June 9th 2018, we will witness the rematch of Leo Santa Cruz (34-1-1, 19 KO’s) and Abner Mares (34-1-2, 15 KO’s).  As in their first fight, Santa Cruz VS Mares 2 will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California, and will be brought to you by Premier Boxing Champions.  The fight will air on ShowTime Championship Boxing.  Their first encounter was a wild one with over 1000 punches thrown in the fight, with Santa Cruz winning by decision.  The rematch should be just as exciting.

ShowTime will be airing another fight brought by Premier Boxing Champions on April 7 2018 as well, and it will be a big one.  This fight will be a title unification bout between the WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Erislandy Lara (25-2-2, 14 KO’s) and the IBF Junior Middleweight Champion Jarrett “Swift” Hurd (21-0, 15 KO’s).  A venue has not yet been chosen for this fight, but an announcement should be coming soon.  This fight will be a part of a sort of unofficial Junior Middleweight tournament, with the winner presumably taking on the current WBC Junior Middleweight champion Jermell Charlo.  Hurd’s most recent ring appearance was a 10th round stoppage victory over former champion Austin Trout, that won him the vacant IBF title.  Lara recently fought Terrell Gausha, and defeated him in a one sided decision victory.

Image result for malignaggi mcgregor sparring

As if the beating he received from Connor McGregor in a sparring session wasn’t enough, Paulie Malignaggi now wants to fight Connor McGregor in a winner take all match, after McGregor faces Floyd Mayweather on August 26th.  MNalignaggi’s boxing career is over, and should not be resurrected unless he likes getting beat up.  Paulie was a solid fighter against second tier opponents, but is more known for his losses, as most of them were pretty brutal.  All the good fighters that he has ever faced have beaten him which includes Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, Adrien Broner, Shawn Porter, and Danny Garcia.

The names that Malignaggi did defeat, are not household names, even to the hardcore boxing fan.  Malignaggi said that he would give up the entire pot if he lost to McGregor, which by all means he would.  He went on to say, “You saw the edited footage.  Winner take all should suit him if he had that easy time with me, right?  Can’t edit that. August 26th theres no video editing.  I’d fight him in a winner takes all match.  Winner takes all if he’s that much better then me at this boxing as the edited video shows.”  This seems like a last desperate attempt for a payday, because even if Malignaggi lost the fight and gave up the entire pot, he would still make money off of endorsements, which would probably total more then the pot itself.  McGregor will not accept this fight, because he said he wants to do more in boxing after the Mayweather fight.  That means he wants boxing money from big fights that he won’t get if he fights Malignaggi.  Should McGregor tale the Malignaggi fight and lose, he would never get a big fight in boxing after that.  Fight won’t happen, and Malignaggi will do a lot of talking because of it.
