David Haye claims he is still the best heavyweight on the planet as he continues to chase the biggest names in the division.
Former WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (39-3-1, 27 KOs) will be facing #8 WBC Ovill McKenzie (25-12-1, 13 KOs) on September 24 in Frankfurt, Germany. It’s unknown if the Huck vs. McKenzie fight will be an eliminator for the WBC crown. Heck, there’s already a line of top talents that are waiting to get a crack at Bellew. They’re like sharks smelling blood in the water. Mairis Briedis, the #1 WBC challenger, wants his mandatory shot at the belt.
Britain’s David Haye thinks this would be the perfect time for IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (17-0, 17 KOs) to face unbeaten WBC heavyweight champ Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs) with him coming off a bad biceps and hand injury to his right hand.
The 6’7” Wilder broke his right hand and suffered a torn bicep in his 8th round knockout victory over Chris Arreola (36-5-1, 31 KOs) last Saturday night at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.
Trainer Virgil Hunter sees IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs) dealing with a lot of pressure in his next fight against welterweight Kell Brook (36-0, 25 KOs). Hunter sees Golovkin as having spoiled the fight fans with him scoring so many knockouts.
WBO junior middleweight champion Liam “Beefy” Smith (23-0-1, 12 KOs) is coming into his fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (47-1-1, 33 KOs) with an eight-fight consecutive knockout streak going over the last three years, and he plans on making the 25-year-old Canelo knockout No.9 in a row when the two of them start trading blows on September 17 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
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 ...
