Geale vs. Macklin

Undefeated American Heavyweight Bryant “By-By” Jennings (18-0, 10 KOs) challenges undefeated Cuban Heavyweight Mike “The Rebel” Perez (20-0-1, 12 KOs) in a fight with Heavyweight title implications.  In the night’s opening bout, former IBF Middleweight king Daniel “Real Deal” Geale (30-2, 16 KOs) dukes it out with former title challenger Matthew “Mack The Knife” Macklin (30-5, 20 KOs).  The Australian looks to move one step closer to regaining his title but the always tough and rugged Brit has other plans in store when the two go at it in Texas.

Stevenson vs. Fonfara- 10:00 pm EST (Showtime)

WBC Light Heavyweight Champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (23-1, 20 KOs) challenges Poland’s Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 15 KOs) in his hometown of Quebec, Canada.  With 10 consecutive knockout victories to his credit, “Superman” will look to continue his dominating ways and earn a potential unification bout with IBF/WBA Light Heavyweight king Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins.

Past May Events

140th Running of the Kentucky Derby – 6:24 pm EST (NBC)

May 3

Mayweather vs. Maidana- 9:00 pm EST (PPV)

Khan vs. Collazo- 12 Rounds Welterweight (147)

Broner vs. Molina- 10 Rounds Light Welterweight (140)

Love vs. Periban- 10 Rounds Super Middleweight (168)

Pound 4 Pound King Floyd “Money” Mayweather (45-0, 26 KOs) looks to stay undefeated when he defends his Ring Magazine/WBC/WBA Welterweight Titles against Argentinean slugger Marcos “El Chino” Maidana (35-3, 31 KOs) LIVE on PPV from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday, May 3rd.  After letting his fans choose his next opponent, the people have spoken and Maidana looks to cash in on the Mayweather Lottery in what could be one of boxing’s biggest upsets in recent years.  Will the slick, crafty Mayweather make it business as usual in the ring; or will “El Chino” catch The Money Team leader and put an end to years of Mayweather’s pure dominance?

Mayweather Sweepstakes runner-up and former IBF/WBA Light Welterweight champion Amir “King” Khan (28-3, 19 KOs) moves up to Welterweight to face former WBA Welterweight Champion Luis Collazo (38-5, 18 KOs) in a fight that could determine Mayweather’s next opponent should he defeat Maidana.  Khan has gone on record stating he should be in fact fighting Mayweather this night and will be looking to make a big statement.  Collazo, who has only been stopped once in his career, has lost to former champions Shane Mosely, Ricky Hatton, and Andre Berto.

Former WBO Super Featherweight, WBC Lightweight, and WBA Welterweight champion Andrien “The Problem” Broner (27-1, 22 K0s) looks to rebound from his losing performance versus headliner Marcus  Maidana when he challenges Carlos Molina (17-1, 7 KOs).  The flashy and often times flamboyant Broner was set to face Mayweather but tasted his first defeat in the 2013 Ring Magazine Upset of the Year.  Broner now looks to impressively rebound against the once defeated Molina and prove that he does in fact belong with boxing’s elite.

Fast rising Money Team member J’Leon Love (17-0, 10 KOs) looks to move up the 168 pound rankings when he fights former title challenger Marco Antonio Periban (20-1, 13 KOs) to open up the PPV telecast.  Good test for the undefeated prospect against Mexico’s toughest Super Middleweight.

Arreola vs. Stiverne 2- (ESPN)

Heavyweights Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola (36-3, 31 KOs) and Bermane “B WARE” Stiverne (23-1, 20 KOs) will collide in a rematch for the vacant WBC Heavyweight Championship.  Arguably the most prized possession in all of boxing, the WBC crown became vacant when longtime ruler Vitali Klitschko decided to pursue a career in Ukrainian politics.  In their 1st fight on April 27, 2013, Stiverne dropped Arreola in Round 3 and continued to batter a bloodied Arreola en route to winning a lopsided Unanimous Decision.  Since tasting defeat, Arreola needed just 146 seconds to dispatch Seth Mitchell and the right to rematch Stiverne for the WBC belt.  Will it be a repeat for the Canadian or revenge for the American?
