HBO’s Jim Lampley says there might be an interesting matchup to be made between RING junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux and the winner of Saturday night’s bout between IBF beltholder Jhonathan Romero and Kiko Martinez.
WBO middleweight titleholder Peter Quillin: “I’m always out there to put on a solid performance for the fans…My fans are what are most important to me. They’re the ones who drive me to be where I’m at right now.”
Middleweight puncher Curtis Stevens: “People come because they love to see people get knocked out… I’m a one-punch knockout guy. I have that type of power… I can touch you just one time and it can be lights out.”
Sergio Martinez’s advisor calls September of 2014 “the perfect time” for a “grand finale” with Gennady Golovkin.
Gennady Golovkin crushed Matthew Macklin with a devastating KO victory, which came on a wicked shot to the liver at 1:22 of the third round, to defend the WBA middleweight title at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods on Saturday night.
Andre Ward on his relationship with promoter Dan Goossen: “If we don’t have an understanding, which it looks like we don’t right now, then we have a major problem.”
HBO’s 2 Days: Gennady Golovkin has accumulated more than 2.5 million viewers, surpassing last year’s average of 2.1 for the installment in advance of the WBA middleweight titleholder’s bout against Matthew Macklin on Saturday, according to the network.
