Gomez Gets Rid of Gibson In Two

@eddie__gomez

In tonight’s co-main event, Eddie “Eboy” Gomez (20-3, 12 KOs) of The Bronx, N.Y. knocked out KeAndre “The Truth” Gibson (18-2-1, 7 KOs) of St. Louis, Mo in the second round of a welterweight fight originally scheduled for 10 rounds. Gomez landed a powerful counter right hand that stiffened and dropped Gibson, who was no longer allowed to continue at :54 of the second round. “I saw that he kept dropping his hands after he jabbed,” said Eddie Gomez. “So, I waited for that and landed the right hand cleanly. I was patient, and when he threw punches, I saw every punch clearly. Training camp was long and hard, so now I can finally breathe and relax.”

Gonzalez Crushes Magbanua In Five By KO victory.

@joetgonzalez

Featherweight contender Joet Gonzalez (19-0, 11 KOs) of Glendora, Calif. scored a fifth-round knockout victory against Rolando Magbanua (26-7, 18 KOs) of Cotabato, Philippines. Though the fight was originally scheduled ten rounds, Gonzalez’s power was too much for Magbanua, who was stopped at 2:06 of the fifth round. “He [Magbanua] came out strong with power shots,” said Joet Gonzalez. “He tried to get me to open up and exchange. But I stuck to the game plan and kept boxing. Eventually I wore him down and dropped him with an uppercut and a hook. He was a little wobbly after he got back up, so the referee stopped the fight.”

CANELO-GOLOVKIN WILL FIGHT ON MAY 5

CANELO-GOLOVKIN WILL FIGHT ON MAY 5

SO SPARE US YOUR, UH, WISDOM:

By Damon Gonzalez

Las Vegas, NV. – It’s great when a superfight like Canelo-Golovkin 2 is intriguing enough to command the attention of the mainstream. The flipside, however, is that a bunch of media gasbags who wouldn’t know a standing eight-count from a standing puddle of sweat suddenly feel it’s their obligation to give us their take on the sweet science, no matter how uninformed they are.

Opening Shots: Yes, the fight is going down on Saturday May 5, 2018 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Clearly, we have witness the punch-a-thon in the first fight as these aggressive power hitters got into their bombs away slugfest, Clear cut marketability between both fighters at the very top level, the fight still has a high level of supply and demand, in fact one of these guys has to win.

Buying boxing PPV’s today is no different then buying groceries or a new car. All we need is to be educated consumers and apply the power of the wallet, you’ll be surprised how well it works, fans today are not talking about missing this epic war.

The world’s number one middleweight is an extremely large shoe to fit, Gennady “GGG’ Golovkin well-schooled defensive boxer and power puncher collided with the hand speed and hard hitting thickly built Saul “Canelo” Alvarez who pumped out a jolting jab and power -shots competing with Golovkin who traded tissue damage with Alvarez in an all out twelve round battle that could have gone either way in my opinion.

There will be another big night in Las Vegas, Nevada in a few months, A relentless battle between two middleweight warriors, so don’t let your feelings get hurt if the fighters won’t give you a story, the story will be told on May 5th. Stay tune.
