The personal feud between Top Rank Inc and Golden Boy Promotions is getting out of hand and is depriving us paying fans of real entertainment and the best bouts all because petty differences and greed.
Most recent is the back and forth of the Abner Mares and Nonito Donaire fight. The fans want the fight but it looks like politics will ruin another great event and the best fighting the best all because two major professional companies are acting like children in the school yard. It's time the realise that us the fans are the reason boxing exists the way it does today.
Without us there would be no money. It's our sport and we should take it back.
Pro Boxing only AA Ring Annonuncer Henry "Did-com-bob-u-lating" Jones was offered the job to announce, Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 in DC, by Boxing Promoter. The HJ entourage was making plans to travel, when Jones called President of HJ Fan Club to give this disheartening cancellation, "ESPN said they want to use their own."
A discussion was held, with questions, "Could this be modern day discrimination", "why wouldn't ESPN want to recognize Jones in Black History Month", "Did they know he was to receive an award from the White House" recognizing his contribution to this field? "Is it Racism?"
We want the world to know ESPN may be practicing unfair selections when it comes to AA. What else will be uncovered about this network? Jones should be recognized and contracted with ESPN as being a loquacious boxing ring announcer, educated and profession.
This petition is for ESPN to bring Jones on board. Message to ESPN: The people who fight looks like Jones. Enough of this practice of "using your own, " make Jones "your own!"
Customers pay a large amount of money to see boxing fights on pay per view and in person. We should be given the fight that we have waited for by both sides.
Someone needs to step in to make this fight happen. Give both sides the equal amount of money and % percent to make the fight equal. The excuses have gone on far enough and the Fans will not wait any longer.
For the past 3 years we the Boxing Public have been fooled by the boxing elite that a potential fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao the two so called best boxers in the world would happen.
These two fighters and there promotion companies have made millions of dollars from the public via PPV and Ticket sales on the backs of hardcore and casual fans alike on fights of mediocre opponents but NO fights between these two greats.
Boxer Lee John Canalito "the Italian Stallion" has made a formal challenge to Two-Time Heavyweight Champion George Foreman. All for charity of course!
An Order of Emergency Suspension was served against American Amateur Mixed Martial Arts, based on inaccuracies and false allegations from The Florida State Boxing Commission and the Department of Business and Professional and Regulation.
They say that AAMMA is unethical and unsafe. For all that have EVER been a part of AAMMA, you know this to be untrue. Please sign this petition in your support of AAMMA.
Due to the ignorance of the inspectors of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Florida State Boxing Commission, they say that we;
1) had a weight difference between 2 minors of 30 lbs. We have video and paperwork to prove otherwise.
2) They say one of the athletes in the same match was knocked out. There was never even one punch thrown in the match and the athlete tapped out by submission.
3) That we allowed strikes to the head of a grounded opponent at events in Crestview on May 6th, 2011, in Panama City on July 16th, 2011 and in Tallahassee on August 13th, 2011. We have video of these events and can prove otherwise.
4)That AAMMA allowed minors to compete in Mixed Martial Arts. AAMMA's minors compete in Modified Martial Arts where they are only allowed to Kickbox when standing and Grappling only while on the ground while wearing full safety gear. We have video proof of this as well. AAMMA is the only non-profit educational/sanctioning organization of its kind in the state of Florida.
Please help us to fight this injustice for all of our registered student athletes, instructors, officials and volunteers all of which give many hours of their time and effort.
The late Sir Henry Cooper OBE KSG held the British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight titles several times throughout his career, and unsuccessfully challenged Ali for the world heavyweight championship in 1966. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Cooper]
He grew up on the Bellingham Estate in Lewisham, South London, and it would be a fitting tribute to mark the place with a permanent memorial of his contributions to sport, sportsmanship, British culture and anti-racism.

Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao are the two best fighters of this current generation. Floyd has beaten every fighter he's fought and Pacquiao has beaten almost everyone.
They tried to negotiate a fight but it fell through due to negotiations over blood testing. There is no fight in boxing currently that will mean more to the sport or that people want to see than this one. It has to happen.
