Unbeaten light welterweight champions Terence Crawford (31-0, 22 KOs) and Julius Indongo (22-0, 11 KOs) will be facing each other this Saturday night in August 19 in a unification clash on ESPN at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Conor McGregor says his former sparring partner Paulie Malignaggi bailed from his recent training camp because he was badly concussed during their second sparring session for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight.
McGregor says Malignaggi was too hurt for him to return for a 3rd sparring session, so he used the excuse of the leaked photos to run from the camp rather than sticking it out. According to McGregor, he was thrashing Malignaggi, battering him against the ropes and putting him on the canvas with a punch.
Three big fights junior middleweight title fights are in the works involving Jermell Charlo vs. Erickson “Hammer” Lubin, Erislandy Lara vs. Gausha and Jarrett Hurd vs. Austin Trout. These are three Premier Boxing Champion’s fights that still don’t have dates or venues, but they’re reportedly being worked on according to RingTV.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. appears to have someone in Conor McGregor’s camp that has given him the game plan for how he’ll be trying to beat him on August 26. Mayweather, 40, isn’t saying who gave him McGregor’s game plan, but it looks like he may have a spy in his camp.
It’s not as if Mayweather really needs the secret info on McGregor’s game plan. Aside from McGregor mugging Mayweather on the inside using an MMA attack plan, there’s not much he’s going to be able to do that he hasn’t seen before.
Conor McGregor does not view middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Saul Canelo Alvarez as fighters that he sees at the top of the sport. McGregor is lot more impressed with the fighters in the lighter weight classes.
McGregor specifically likes super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux and super featherweight belt holder Vasyl Lomachenko. McGregor wishes that they would face each other, as he wants to see who the better fighter is of the two.
His death seems to have touched a different nerve.
When 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos was shot dead by Caloocan City policemen during an anti-drug war operation, not one among the cops
involved could have figured how different this one death would be.Read more ...

I READ somewhere that the DPWH is allocating mega billions for infrastructure projects designed to ease the traffic problem besetting much of urban Philippines. I can imagine how a big chunk of that moolah will be devoted to infra projects within Metro Manila - more street widenings, more flyovers, maybe more pedestrian overpasses and underpasses as well as flood control.Read more ...

As I flew out of Manila yesterday morning I noticed that it happened to be a clear day over most of the NCR, and what big clouds there were weren’t big enough to cover everything. So our PAL Airbus A330 flew around the giant clouds and in between them you could catch a glimpse of considerable sections of Metro Manila. My younger brother seated behind me pointed out UP Diliman - and I marveled at the way the campus was green as seen from the air and at how it was laid out.Read more ...
