Alfonso Gomez Flexes On The Mic (Again)

Alfonso Gomez, like Roy Jones, is one of the few boxers who prepares a song for each fight, usually performed at the press conference. Here's video of him baiting El Canelo at the LA presser promoting their September 17 fight at Staples Center that will be shown as a split-site card on HBO PPV. The Alvarez-Gomez fight is the main co-feature of Star Power: Mayweather vs. Ortiz. For his part, El Canelo was nonplussed to the degree that when he got on the mic, he claimed that he was "not a clown," but a man who would do his talking in the ring, with his fists.

Antillon Chats After His Loss To Rios

The less said about last night's shambolic outcome in the HBO main event, the better (everyone knows a robbery when we see it). Instead, let's focus on the great three-round war on Showtime between Brandon Rios and Urbano Antillon--here's Antillon's thoughts on the bout post-fight:

Unsurprisingly, he says he feels him and Rios will never get along.

The Forgotten Fight: Paul Williams vs. Erislandy Lara

This potentially great fight doesn't seem like its getting its fair share of the hype this week, with most of the attention drawn by the sure-to-be-bloodbath between Brandon Rios and Urbano Antillon on Showtime. But HBO's main event may be more meaningful. Here's some video hype from the final press conference.

In the first segment, a serious Paul Williams promises to drag Lara through the mud.

Here, a supremely confident Lara dismisses Paul Williams, calling him "just another fighter."

This one's shaping up to be an extremely interesting fight. We like the underdog.
