Floyd Mayweather in regard to his past: “No one is perfect…The only thing that I can do is try to become a better person, each and every day.”
Abel Sanchez doesn’t think his middleweight Gennady Golovkin will ever get a shot at RING champ Sergio Martinez: “I think that they’ve made a comment about fighting Gennady Golovkin in about September of 2014. That’s like saying that he doesn’t want to fight him.”
The anticipated Sept. 14 Showtime Pay Per View event co-headlined by Floyd Mayweather-Canelo Alvarez and Danny Garcia-Lucas Matthysse will be joined by a third title fight between Ishe Smith and Carlos Molina, as well as a welterweight bout matching Ashley Theophane against Pablo Cesar Cano.
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.”
Lamont Peterson’s trainer believes that a victory over Lucas Matthysse could “put him in the lotto for a fight with someone like Floyd Mayweather.”
