SORT BY Relevancy
Did we need that, or did we NEED that? Following a monumental letdown of a megafight in Mayweather-Pacquiao, boxing fans needed a nice weekend of boxing to recharge, and we got it. There were negatives to focus on -- like another fantastically inept failure by Texas referee Laurence Cole -- but it was mostly fun. This week on the newly-reworked Top Men Boxing Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and boxing writer/historian Patrick Connor welcome back to the show Kelsey McCarson of Bleacher Report, The Sweet Science and The Boxing Channel. The topics? All things boxing. But more specifically, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's destruction of James Kirkland, a recap of the #PBConCBS card that featured Omar Figueroa vs Ricky Burns and Jamie McDonnell vs Tomoki Kameda, and a preview of the upcoming HBO card featuring Gennady Golovkin vs Willie Monroe Jr and Roman Gonzalez vs Edgar Sosa. That's a lot of good stuff. Don't miss it. Thanks for tuning in!

A December fight against former welterweight titlist Joshua Clottey -- which was supposed to be the first on Alvarez's new contract with HBO -- was canceled because of Alvarez's lingering left ankle injury that he said has healed. Kirkland (32-1, 28 KOs), a 31-year-old southpaw from Austin, Texas, has not fought since a rousing sixth-round knockout of then-undefeated Glen Tapia in December 2013. Kirkland had management issues, legal problems and turned down various fights while also parting ways with longtime trainer Ann Wolfe to work with the tandem of Bay Bay McClinton and Rick Morones.
Undefeated light welterweight Frankie Gomez faces former champion Humberto Soto.
The 140-pound weight class is always filled with talented fighters, and Gomez could be ready to join that distinguished group. Soto should be his toughest test to date. Omar Figeroa vs Ricky Burns live on PBC.

Heavenly Father who are in Heaven.
Hallowed be Your Most Holy Name.
I Praise Your name Father and as I come
before Your Throne this evening Dear Father
I Pray for Forgiveness. I Pray Dear LORD, You
will blot out my iniquities and cleanse me from
my sins. Father I look to You this evening. Father
forgive me when I take my eyes off You and look at
man. Your word calls us to put not out trust in man
as the very day he dies his thoughts perish. Father,
I thank You, You are a God who deliverers. I thank You,
You love us with an unending love. Cause me to have that
same love for others I pray Dear LORD. Father in the name
of Jesus I bind every demonic spirit. Every Spirit that seeks
to devour, destroy and seperates Dear LORD. And Father I
Pray a Blessing over us Dear LORD. Not because of anything
good that we have done, but according to Your Lovingkindness
blot out our trangressions and cleanse us from Our Iniquity Dear
LORD. Beloved as I was going about my day today I heard the
name "Elkanah" and I knew it was one of the women in the Bible
Husband and Child's Father. I googled Elizabeth's Husband however
He was Zechariah. I next googled Samuel's Father and very much so
it was Elkanah. Beloved I strongly believe there is an important leson to be
learned as we reflect on "Elkanah" Samuels Father. Beloved born to Elkanah
we one of the most renowed Prophet Samuel. Samuel is the Child that was prayed
for and Birthed. He's the child that was given back to the LORD and He was a man
who followed and did the LORD's commands. He's the Prophet who anointed Saul
as King and David as Kings. Beloved this evening through the Power of the Holy
Spirit of the LORD we will look at Elkanah.
Paul this man who was once call Saul who hated the church after being brought into the light of Christ tells us in chapter 12 of the spiritual gifts God placed in the church; in chapter 14, he lectures the class on prophecy and its superiority of the two. And, then he makes chapter 13 the ‘’oreo’’ in the cookie: the greatest of these is love.
Chapter 13, v. 1-3 In paragraph one of three, Paul’s arrangement of the spiritual gifts in a greater/lesser grouping are to highlight the importance of love to tongues & prophecy; knowledge or faith nor the burning of your body are greater than love.
Paul, the apostle, in v.4-7, personifies and enumerates what love is and what love aint; what love does and what love does not do.
V, 8-13 are The preacher and teacher waits until v. 8, his last paragraph, to announces the text of his message, ‘’love never fail’’...
V.13 Our Dear brother Paul in the final verse of the love chapter takes love and do the math with faith and hope...
Promoter Oscar De La Hoya said Friday he has signed agreements from former light-middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and heavy-punching James Kirkland to fight each other in May on HBO. De La Hoya told the Times in a telephone interview from Alvarez’s home in San Diego that the date and site -- either San Antonio’s Alamodome or a venue in Las Vegas -- will be finalized soon. Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 knockouts) had a deadline one or two weekends ago that middleweight world champion Miguel Cotto let pass without agreeing to a deal. Cotto is believed to be waiting in case Floyd Mayweather Jr. opts not to fight Manny Pacquiao on May 2.
