“On The Ropes” Boxing Radio is back this week with host Jenna J to discuss all the hottest news and fights in the sport. In this episode I will be recapping last Saturday’s SHOWTIME Pay-per-view event which featured the rematch between Marcos ‘El Chino’ Maidana and Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr. I will talk about Floyd’s dominant performance, as well as the controversy that took place in the ring. I will also discuss what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather and if we might finally see Mayweather vs. Pacquiao next year. Just click on the audio player to listen to the show!


Joining the show this week is rising light middleweight contender, James ‘The King’ De La Rosa. James was part of the Mayweather-Maidana undercard and he got the biggest win of his career by dominating the hard hitting Alfredo Angulo in a ten round bout. De La Rosa talks about his victory and what he felt about Angulo as an opponent. Additionally, James De La Rosa talks about what weight class he feels most comfortable at and what opponents he would like to face now that he’s a higher ranked contender. Lastly, ‘The King’ gives his views on the Mayweather-Maidana fight and some of the top fighters in the sport.

The main guest on this week’s program is renowned trainer, Brother Naazim Richardson. Naazim is the lead trainer of Bernard Hopkins and has also trained the likes of Shane Mosley and Steve Cunningham. Richardson makes his return to “On The Ropes” to talk about the upcoming title unification bout between Bernard ‘The Alien’ Hopkins and Sergey ‘Krusher’ Kovalev, and what this win would mean to Bernard’s career. Naazim also gives his thoughts on Floyd Mayweather’s win over Marcos Maidana and the scheduled Manny Pacquiao vs. Chris Algieri match.

  1. Na he doesnt need Floyd. But Bob wants dem millions so its gonna happen anyway. And lucky for Bob’s little poodle Floyd hits about a 1000th as hard as Marquez

      hey, are you fuckin’ sure of what you were saying? Floyd said that he would knock Maidana out, did it came? pendejo i think you didnt know boxing. Marquez is a mexican legend and a true warrior, he faced Pacquiao 4 times while Mayweather is afraid of Pacman! dont talk too much as if you know! anyway, Marquez has faced Mayweather and gay floyd cheated Marquez on the scale, and now you were saying Gay floyd hits harder than Marquez? you make me laugh absolutely!

    • Jack says:

      Fight won’t happen anymore, Jim Lampley of HBO made sure of that. No HBO for Floyd.

    • floyd mayweather jr says:

      @Barry Gil R. Pilar. perhaps what chris daniels is saying is that fraud gayweather’s punching power is only equivalent to marquez’s fraction of power – a 1000th! may he meant that fmjr’s has no power at all.

  2. rae says:

    floyd is coward period

  3. For a lot of people, particularly those living payday to payday,
    the sole way to meet their obligations was with the use of
    your short-term loan network.

  4. It is important to help keep in mind the rates of these kinds of loan program are relatively high.
