« It’s part of boxing, sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, and I think he just got the lucky chance, the lucky shot in that fight, » said Pacquiao, who crumpled to the canvas after a crushing right from Marquez in the sixth round. Asked how much longer he sees himself in the ring, the 34-year-old, now serving a second term as a Philippine congressman, vowed that « as long as I can still fight, I am going to fight ». « In my mind, I can still fight two to three years from now, » said Pacquiao, the only fighter in history to win world titles in eight different weight divisions. A storm of controversy erupted in the Philippines last week after Pacquiao told AFP he had considered running for president in the future, although a spokesman later said he had no immediate plans to further his political career and that he « knows very well » he cannot contest an election until he is aged 40. Pacquiao’s seven-year, 15-bout winning streak came to an end in June 2012 with a controversial split decision loss to Timothy Bradley, followed six months later by the sensational defeat to Marquez in their fourth meeting. He promised a good show when he meets Rios, who is seven years his junior, in Macau as part of the sport’s efforts to generate interest across Asia outside the boxing-mad Philippines. « He’s a tough opponent, » Pacquiao said.

9. Amir Khan-Victor Ortiz Sure, there are plenty of more-important matchups to be made, especially considering that Golden Boy’s cupboard is currently stocked in the welterweight division. But try, even for a second, to tell me you wouldn’t cancel a hot date or reschedule your birthday should this bout between vulnerable — and in the case of Ortiz, fantastically unpredictable — fighters get made. Straight fireworks, homey. 8. Abner Mares-Leo Santa Cruz In one of the rare good things to come out of the promotional cold war, a lack of big-name options for the P4P-worthy Mares has made this fight with the punch-all-night Santa Cruz a likely scenario for Golden Boy. Mares, who proved able to carry his power up to 126 pounds, would be pressured from the opening bell like never before by the taller Santa Cruz, who is coming off a successful debut at junior featherweight.

In an editorial in the local News Day newspaper and the Washington Post, Tsvangirai urged African monitors not to give the vote a seal of approval merely because they do not witness bloodshed. « Mugabe is the world’s oldest leader and one of its longest-ruling dictators. He is fixing this election in a more sophisticated fashion than previous ZANU-PF campaigns of beatings, killings and intimidation, » he wrote. « Mugabe’s election-stealing antics have been documented throughout Zimbabwe and beyond. Yet the international community seems apathetic; perhaps Mugabe has been stealing elections for so long the world just rolls its eyes and moves on. » Mugabe acknowledged problems with the election organization, including the late release of the voters’ roll, but denied his minions had doctored the list to ensure a ZANU-PF victory. « I don’t control the electoral process. I comply with and obey the electoral law, » he said.

According to Lueckenhoff, by not voting to change the Unified Rules of MMA to adopt the change to the current rule, the commission may be setting itself up for future problems. First off, it is very difficult to get a rule change implemented by all the members, he said. Even if we did vote on it here, some of our members would have to go back to their states and have it approved by their legislatures; but I can see us revisiting this again next year or forming a committee to study it further. It is not clear if all ABC member commissions will implement the directive at this point. In other convention news, UFC Senior Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs Michael Mersch addressed the assembled members and informed them that the UFC had successfully lobbied the Canadian government to clarify the 85 year-old law that outlawed prizefighting. There was an exception made for boxing, and Mersch said a similar distinction was added for mixed martial arts.

aI am frightened, shocked and appalled that the AIBA and the International Olympic Committee could support such a canelo alvarez vs floyd mayweather jr tickets harmful policy against human interest and public interest.a The league, called AIBA Professional Boxing, would offer fighters from ages 19 to 40 a chance to work their way through national, regional and world levels in 10 weight categories starting later this year. The plan is gaining opposition from professional boxing associations and promoters. aI am extremely concerned by the commandeering of those participating in the Olympics by the AIBA,a King said. aTheir policy demanding that participants sign exclusive, professional contracts with AIBA in order to participate in the Olympics is tantamount to monopoly, coercion and restraint of trade.a While King acknowledges the positive impact the IOC and AIBA have had on amateur boxing, he suggests this latest move will undermine their credibility. aThe AIBA and the IOC, for the past century, have had a mission overseeing amateur boxers for safety, ethics, honor, and the spirit of fair play,a King said. aNow, today, unfortunately, AIBAas new policy runs completely counter to the integrity of the past centuryas mission.a Kingas concerns have been echoed by Dr. Allan Fields, a leading ringside physician and medical advisor for several athletic boards who believes the safety of the athlete is at stake.
