Would Manny Pacquiao go Wladimir Klitschko on boxing fans? The signs are all there but the boxing community is awaiting an official statement from Pacquiao’s camp. After the controversial loss to Jeff Horn back in July, the fighter said he would exercise his rematch clause.

The fight was a close one as some pundits awarded Manny victory based on their analysis. However, it was obvious that Pacquiao was a shadow of his former self. There were promises that the rematch would set the record straight but until date nothing concrete has come forth.

Rua To Fight In Fight Night 106

There is an upcoming fight between Mauricio Rua and Gian Villante that you would like to know about.

It would be part of UFC Fight Night 106. Both fighters would try to prove that they are not only place holders in the light heavyweight category. If one is to look at performance records, Rua stands at 24-10 while Gian Villante is at 15-7. With regard to history or background information on both fighters, Rua has stayed relevant even though he has been plagued by knee injuries several times. Also known as Shogun, it might seem weird that he has stuck it out and doing as much as he can. There had been fights like the ones he had with Machida and Chuck when it seemed that he was on top of his game with regard to speed and ferociousness. Even though he did not decline much, but it seemed that he was coming off for the worse in certain fights and overall, it might seem that he was on a downward trend.


Following his loss to Mauricio Rua earlier in May, Corey Anderson has revealed that he is contemplating leaving MMA. It appears that he now considered the result, which was a loss on slit decision to be unfair.

Recall that Anderson had earlier this year endured a split-call loss to Mauricio Rua in Rua’s home country of Brazil. In the first moments after the loss, he had admitted that his loss was largely his fault, adding that he probably had not done his best.

However, he watched the video of the fight on the long flight back home from Brazil, and had a change of perspective. Coincidentally, most fans and spectators taught he won the fight. Speaking to MMAjunkie he said:

“When they said ‘Shogun,’ I was content with it, then when I watched the video in the room and saw I really dominated, even though I didn’t do that much in the first round. I hit him more, I took him down, I was kicking him, I was blocking.
