In 2011, the boxing world was rocked by controversial decisions and questionable judging which undoubtedly tarnished the credibility of boxing judges and, perhaps, the sport's integrity.

Timothy Bradley's trainer, Joel Diaz, constantly implores his fighters to stay focused on the tasks at-hand and to not let distractions prevent them from losing focus. 

Timothy Bradley trainer Joel Diaz believes Manny Pacquiao will be his own worst enemy when his fighter squares off against the WBO Welterweight Champion on June 9th.

Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KO), boxing's 'Jack of All Trades,' expects to lift the WBO Welterweight title from Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KO) June 9th.

Sometimes a pair of fighters provide such an compelling style match-up it's hard to favor one fighter over another.

The fight that many thought would never take place, Sergio Martinez vs Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, is officially one step closer to becoming a reality!

Rumors are swirling in Las Vegas that a three way blockbuster deal will be announced shortly involving Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO), Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (45-0-1, 31 KO) and Andy Lee (27-1, 19 KO).

Manny Pacquiao's upcoming opponent, undefeated WBO jr welterweight title-holder Tim Bradley, believes his victory over the Filipino star will be achieved long before he steps into the ring with Pac Man on June 9th.

Like Timothy Bradley (28-0, 12 KO), Joel Diaz, his trainer, is not well-known among the sport's casual observers. Highly-respected among hardcore fans and boxing insiders, Diaz has earned his stripes by not only helping Tim Bradley win two world titles but also leading Antonio and Julio Diaz, Abner Mares and Vicente Escobedo to world championship glory.

Most fans and experts will attest the public has seen two very conflicting sides of Manny Pacquiao.
