Farewell to Juan Diaz

Juan Diaz pulls out of his July 29th fight – instead will attend law school. Just 2 weeks after signing a contract to fight David Torres. Diaz received an acceptance letter from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Law School. After correspondence with the law school in an effort to wait a year before starting school, which was refused by the school, Diaz has decided to quit boxing.

Two-time junior lightweight champion Genaro Hernandez died on Tuesday. He was 45. He had a rare form of cancer, and had battled it for 3 years. He was surrounded by his family at his home in Mission Viejo, California.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. may fight Pacquiao. Freddie Roach told The Associated Press that he thinks Mayweather agreed to fight Victor Ortiz because it would help him get ready for a fight with Pacquiao. Mayweather will be ending a 16-month layoff. Ortiz and Pacquaio are fast, left-handed, high volume punchers. Mayweather’s track record with left-handed opponents, although few, is not too good.

After winning world titles in both featherweight and junior lightweight divisions, Robert Guerrero is looking at a junior welterweight. The fight is not final yet, but Richard Schaefer is “putting the finishing touches” on this fight. If it all works out, the fight will be on August 27th, between Guerrero and Marcos Maidana, at the HP Pavilion (Shark Tank) in San Jose, CA. The winner of this fight may possibly fight the winner of the Amir Khan vs. Zab Judah.

Robert Guerrero

Pacquiao vs. Mosely fight generated over $83 Million. More than 1.3 million pay-per-view buys, along with 15,422 tickets sold at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, make for that big number. Pacquiao’s next fight is scheduled for Nov. 12 against Juan Manuel Marquez.

Boxing Training – More Defensive Moves

Bob & Weave – move your head to the side and under that incoming punch. Bend your legs quickly, while shifting your body either left or right. After avoiding the punch, stand back up with your head to the left or right of your opponent’s outstretched arm.

Parry / Block – use your shoulder, hands or arms to protect against attacks. A block usually catches a punch while a parry deflects it. A “palm” or “cuff” intentionally receives a punch on that part of the boxing glove.

Grab some boxing gloves, a partner, some hand wraps and get to practicing.  Find discount boxing gear here.
