No, this is not as bad as Colonel Tom Parker ripping apart his only client Elvis Presley over nearly twenty-one years but it begs the question, who would Manny be fighting on November 22 had he not signed a contract extension through 2016? </div> </div> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 08:06:00 +0000 http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/pacquiao-continues-pay-per-view-nonsense The irresistible force of Gilberto Ramirez http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/the-irresistible-force-of-gilberto-ramirez <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ImageThumb2" style="float:left;"><a href="http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/the-irresistible-force-of-gilberto-ramirez"><img src="http://www.secondsout.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/5837/GilbertoRamirezSanchez.jpeg" border="0" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a></div> <div id="ItemTeaser2" style="float:left;"> By Mark Butcher in Macao: Unbeaten super-middleweight Gilberto Ramirez has the irresistible looks of a Latin movie star and power just as disarming. The handsome Mexican has drawn gasps and even applause from Chinese women inside the Venetian Casino ahead of his bout against Junior Talipeau on Saturday. Ramirez also has a habit of leaving his opponents similarly weak-kneed. </div> </div> Sat, 19 Jul 2014 04:03:00 +0000 http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/the-irresistible-force-of-gilberto-ramirez Zou Shiming shining before Champions Of Gold http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/zou-shiming-shining-before-champions-of-gold <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ImageThumb3" style="float:left;"><a href="http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/zou-shiming-shining-before-champions-of-gold"><img src="http://www.secondsout.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/5809/RoachZouCouldFightNo2Flyweight.jpeg" border="0" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a></div> <div id="ItemTeaser3" style="float:left;"> By Mark Butcher: Amid the hustle and bustle generated by Chinese gamers and thrill-seekers, Top Rank’s latest foray into the South-East Asian boxing market takes place this Saturday with national hero Zou Shiming the focus of the ‘Champions of Gold’ event at the Venetian Casino in Macao. Zou and Guillermo Rigondeaux are finalizing their preparation in a custom gym in the catacombs beneath the cavernous casino away from the prying eyes of passing gamblers. </div> </div> Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:51:00 +0000 http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/zou-shiming-shining-before-champions-of-gold Alvarez-Lara, The Aftermath  http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/alvarez-lara-the-aftermath- <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ImageThumb4" style="float:left;"><a href="http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/alvarez-lara-the-aftermath-"><img src="http://www.secondsout.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/5837/004CaneloAlvarezvsErislandyLara.jpg" border="0" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a></div> <div id="ItemTeaser4" style="float:left;"> Styles make Fights By Andrew Rivera: So the Canelo Alvarez/ Erislandy Lara ended in a 12 round split decision win for Canelo, yes it was close and some may think Lara won, but in boxing these things will happen when you get a contrast in styles. This has happened throughout boxing history where an aggressive fighter like Canelo edges a slick fighter like Lara. </div> </div> Mon, 14 Jul 2014 08:39:00 +0000 http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/alvarez-lara-the-aftermath- Mayweather’s Diminishing Returns   http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/mayweathers-diminishing-returns-- <div style="display:block;"> <div id="ImageThumb5" style="float:left;"><a href="http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/mayweathers-diminishing-returns--"><img src="http://www.secondsout.com/AcuCustom/Sitename/DAM/5834/MayweathervsMaidana11.jpg" border="0" hspace="5" vspace="5" /></a></div> <div id="ItemTeaser5" style="float:left;"> By Matthew Hurley: As it became apparent that Floyd Mayweather would fill one of the final slots in his ridiculously lucrative Showtime contract with a rematch against Marcos Maidana in September, a collective eye roll spread among many in the boxing world. </div> </div> Tue, 08 Jul 2014 15:19:00 +0000 http://www.secondsout.com/features/main-features/mayweathers-diminishing-returns-- Jose Ribalta: Respect?
