Floyd Mayweather will equal Rocky Marciano and then retire

In an utter mismatch, WBA Super World light middleweight titlist Floyd Mayweather earned a majority decision over precocious brawler Saul Alvarez to earn the WBC light middleweight crown Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs) didn’t fight poorly and consistently forced the action, Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) landed flush shots for 36 minutes that flustered...

Floyd Mayweather Jr. hurt his right hand while battering an outclassed Robert Guerrero for 36 minutes on Saturday night in “Sin City.” Fortunately, although noticeably swollen and discolored, the 36-year-old Mayweather (44-0, 26 KOs) didn’t severely damage his power paw and still intends to scrap on September 14.

Floyd Mayweather Says He’s The Greatest of All Time (Video)

This is a standard Floyd Mayweather interview. Mayweather is one of the best boxers of all-time, but the greatest of all-time is a bit of stretch. The undefeated record carries a lot of weight, but Rocky Marciano was undefeated too and not many people say he is the best boxer or even heavyweight of all-time. From 2009 to the second Pacquiao was put to sleep by Marquez, I covered...

Rocky Marciano vs. Floyd Patterson fantasy fight

Rocky Marciano retired 49-0 in April 1956, the only heavyweight champion to hang up the gloves with both the title around his waist and a perfect record. In the decades that followed, many revisionist critics would deride Marciano as a crude slugger who fought only old guys and little guys. The latter point ignores the undeniable fact that Marciano himself never tipped the scales...

Tiger Ted Lowry: The only man to take Rocky Marciano the distance twice

Not many know of "Tiger" Ted Lowry.  A shame, given that Lowry was the only boxer to twice survive the distance with one of the all-time great heavyweights, Rocky Marciano. Lowry (68-68-10, 45 KOs) fought from 1939 to 1955, taking time off from the ring to serve his country during World War II with the all-black 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, known as the Triple...
