Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

After dismantling Antonio DeMarco of Tijuana for The WBC lightweight World Championship, Larry Merchant asked Adrien Broner if he would rather be known as a “Boxer or a Fighter”.

His response:

“If I had a choice, I would be a Playboy, Larry.”

Quote of the year.

Adrien Broner: I Would Rather Be a Playboy

It is also kind of strange, since when I was a young cub, I always wanted to be a professional boxer. And now I am an International Playboy. It is funny how the world works.

Anyways, Adrien Broner is the real deal. Is he the next Pernell Whitaker? Not sure. Is he the next Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Not sure either.

However, I think he may punch harder than both those guys.

On another note, I have been so disconnected from boxing lately, that I didn’t even know that Emanuel Steward passed away.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Emanuel Steward on more than a few occasions. The first time when I was really young. I am not completely sure he ever remembered me, but he was the coolest cat you will ever meet.

Rest in Peace, boxing will never be the same.

On that same note of being disconnected, I finally watched Sergio Martinez VS Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Amazing fight.

Sergio Martinez is The Man. He fights at a level that is so damn elevated. Tons of heart too. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. also proved himself to the haters. I have always said that people were way too hard on the kid. He can fight.

Miguel Cotto defeats Ricardo Mayorga in 12

Miguel Cotto defeats Ricardo Mayorga in 12

It took just under 12 rounds of the fight but Miguel Cotto, 36-2 (29), achieved the knockout he promised to deliver by the end of the final heat, successfully defending his WBA junior middleweight belt and sending former welterweight champion Ricardo Mayorga, 29-8-2 (23), into retirement at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Things started off with both Cotto and Mayorga attempting to land solid shots in order to establish who the bigger puncher was. As Cotto landed some clean bombs, Mayorga replied with strong shots of his own.

Mayorga was blasted with a left hook to the jaw and as a result was backed up into the ropes. Mayorga played off his condition by trying to goad Cotto into a power exchange against the ropes. Cotto took his time as he patiently glided into range and unleashed some strong shots.

The tone of the fight was set as Cotto established his range and connected with power jabs that eventually would swell up Mayorga’s right eye. To Mayorga’s credit, he was game and continued gain an advantage but his free-swinging style allowed Cotto to show off some improved defense and balance as he avoided most of the big shots.

Cotto looked great in this one, and Mayorga looked good as well. Not bad for a 10-1 underdog.

Sergio Martinez Stops Sergiy Dzinziruk in Eight, Defends Middleweight Championship

The 2010 “Fighter of the Year” didn’t do anything to take himself out of the running for that honor in 2011.

Middleweight champion Sergio Martinez retained his title with an eighth-round stoppage of Sergiy Dzinziruk Saturday at the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods.

Martinez, 47-2-2 (26), dropped Dzinziruk five times in the fight, including three times in the eighth, before referee Arthur Mercante stopped it at 1:43.

“I wanted to nullify his boxing, nullify his punches, nullify his jab,” Martinez said. “Little by little, I did that.”

Dzinziruk, 37-1 (23), fought in a tight defensive shell but kept coming forward, while Martinez kept moving around the ring, letting his hands go more often. In the eighth, Martinez dropped Dzinziruk with right hooks three times, with Dzinziruk landing hard on his shoulder each time.

“I had to open up more and I did, but it didn’t help,” said Dzinziruk. “The knockdowns were not hard punches but they were perfect shots.”

Next up for Miguel Cotto is a rematch with Antonio Margarito

That fight will be huge.

It’s hard to figure out the best move for Sergio Martinez’s next fight.

Sergio Martinez Shadow Boxing

Sergio Martinez Shadow Boxing

I have mentioned many times before that I have gotten back in to Boxing this year as serious as I have ever been since I boxed Golden Gloves as a young pup. Working out seven days a week, and sparring three times per week.

Along with jumping rope, one of the things that has helped me get back into top form is Shadow Boxing. Watch one of the best:

Sergio Martinez Shadow Boxing

His footwork, tempo and rhythm are excellent. He just keeps his hands so low. But its working for him, so who am I to say anything.

Good video of some Sergio Martinez Hightlights:

The very beginning of the video he does a shuffle left then an off beat, off tempo, perfectly timed shot. Perfectly. One of my favorite moves.

Here is a newer video of Sergio Martinez Highlights with him dismantling Kelly “The Ghost” Pavlik and Sergio Martinez KO’s Paul Williams in Second Fight:

In other news, here is an interesting article about Stephen A. Schwarzman:

“The United States is going through a difficult time politically, and having other types of issues that everybody in this group knows about,” Mr. Schwarzman told the conference, adding, “The political calculus of the last two years hasn’t resulted in a winning calculus.”

Among the European assets he’s examining: Irish real estate, which he believes will be soon available at bargain-basement prices as a result of Ireland’s sovereign debt crisis.

“They just set up a massive R.T.C.,” Mr. Schwarzman said, referring to the Resolution Trust Corporation, the government agency that liquidated assets seized during the savings and loan crisis in the United States. “They barely know what they own.”

But he does not like every foreign market, expressing relief that Blackstone stayed away from Spanish real estate in 2006, and noting that in parts of Europe throughout the last few years, “the risk/reward equation was really wrong.”

He also cautioned investors to remain patient in the face of economic unrest, and to wait for signs of improvement until investing heavily in distressed foreign markets.

“You want to wait until there’s really blood in the streets,” he said, adding, “You’re better off paying 10 percent more into a healing situation than trying to pick bottoms.”

Picture perfect perfection:

Sergio Martinez is now The Middleweight Boss.

I didn’t have time to do a write up on this fight, but I didn’t think Sergio Martinez would take him out that quick. I still got to place a little bet on this this one so I got a little extra walking around money, which is all that matters.

Watch that KO again. Pretty damn electrifying.
