Isn't Lamont Peterson banned for steroid use?

He tested positive for something after he beat Khan in like 2012 and that's why they never had a rematch but lately its pretty much just Peterson being a victim of pbc having a lot fewer dates in 2016 than in 2015.

Hes not really the kind of guy you can build into an attraction at this point so no need to bend over backwards to get him a fight.

EDIT: Also sounds like most here were on the Showtime card last night-which I totally get-but the HBO card was pretty fun too. Poor Francisco Vargas

Welterweight titleholder Kell Brook and mandatory challenger Errol Spence Jr. will prepare to meet in May in Brook's hometown of Sheffield, England, after their camps made a deal on Monday.

The IBF confirmed the deal, the location of the fight and a date of May 20 -- though that could change -- in a letter to registered promoters. The letter, obtained by ESPN, also announced that the purse bid scheduled to take place Tuesday afternoon at IBF headquarters in Springfield, New Jersey, had been canceled.

P4P for me is primarily an eye test since-for me-pound for pound basically means if everyone could magically be the same size who would be the best fighters? Record is important of course but it still mainly comes down to skill vs skill.

Lomachenko is one of the most decorated amateurs of all time and has shown exponential growth since losing to Salido (and he easily could've won anyways) so that's why he's my number 1 p4p and it honestly isn't all that close.

EDIT:

MMM Whatchya Say posted:

Lomachenko vs Crawford would be great, but they're a bit too far in weight right now

Unfortunately I doubt they would ever meet. Crawford will be officially at welter after Diaz/Orozco and Loma will be at 135 by the end of the year. Lomachenko beats Pacquiao at 135 right now imo

Boo Boo has had some trouble, but his career is hardly a trainwreck and this Culcay fight is a good step for him imo.

For me its more that his career has really stalled since he first burst on the scene. In many ways it seems like its starting to mirror what happened to Gamboa (who actually is going to be on HBO as the co main to Lemieux-Stevens) a few years ago.

I disagree, Canelo's still a star and also the lineal middleweight champion according to RING magazine

I just wish me and MMM Watcha Say could agree on something for a change 

Also it seems like Chocolatito just might not be built for anything above flyweight strange as that sounds. He really hasn't had the same explosiveness since moving up when he couldn't put away Arroyo. He was really fading against Cuadras and was bullied by Rungvisai. Might favor him in a rematch but I would definitely be worried if he got in with Inoue who would absolutely dwarf him. I favored Inoue for a while but would worry that the Monster would really hurt Gonzalez.

Not sure why the Linares/Crolla rematch is happening but it should be good so whatever. If you were to build the perfect boxer you'd end up with something like Linares, he just inexplicably folds sometimes, out of nowhere.

Between his paper-thin skin and propensity for just that it's amazing Linares has gotten as far as he has. Even forgetting Emmanuel Steward's "one of the best boxer's I've ever seen in my life" which he never could have lived up to.

Was poking around for the first time in ages and happy to find this thread for sweet science fans. Lomachenko fights Jason Sosa this Saturday; doesn't sound like much on paper but Sosa is a decent test while VL works his way up to 135. Mikey Garcia already said he's willing to delay a move to 140 to wait for VL to come up, which would be a real cracker.

I have no doubt they both genuinely really want the fight but between the politics of Mikey having to deal with Top Rank soon after a bad split and Lomachenko hanging around at 130 for 2-3 more fights after Sosa I'm not sure their paths will cross. But we can get Loma vs the Berchelt-Miura winner and/or Jezreel Corrales as well as Garcia-Linares and/or Robert Easter Jr. instead that's hell of a consolation prize.

Also, supposedly Pacquiao against Jeff Horn is actually signed. Yippee

i forgot how short it was.

i just watched lomachenko / sosa. gross mismatch. absolute pleasure to watch the angles loma cuts though. insanely sick.

That's why everyone is calling him to take on an undefeated champion at 135. Sosa is a top 7-8 guy at 130 and it's becoming apparent there's no challenges for him unless he takes on the elite at higher weight classes.

EDIT:

VOTE YES ON 69 posted:

Okay, I did my homework.... Loma would trounce Crawford, good as he is. No clue who could take Loma outside of a lucky shot -- I don't think anyone can counter his speed or instinct right now (Salido )

At this point Salido can weigh 200 pounds and be allowed to low blow Loma to his heart's content and he'd still get worked.
