 ALL BOXING EVERYTHING: WHO WILL STAND UP AND DREAM FOR A BETTER SPORT?
By Ben Dean

It has been said that some of the greatest ideas known to humankind were birthed during a dream-like state. Simply put, some great things became reality because someone dared to dream them first. Dared to dream that they didn't have to be relegated to possibility, but could become reality. Recently, I was listening to a hip hop track by Lupe Fiasco titled All Black Everything... While listening to this tune, my mind drifted to the current state of boxing. What would happen if we were in a paradoxical state? What if we could create anomalies where what's wrong can be made right, and what's broken can be fixed?

 BEN DEAN'S WEEKEND WRAP-UP
By Ben Dean

Amir Khan took a wide unanimous decision over Devon Alexander this weekend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  Khan got off to a fast start and proved why many felt he had the superior boxing skills as well as hand and foot speed advantage coming into this bout.  It'll be interesting to see where he goes next.  Khan has made it no secret that he wants a Floyd Mayweather bout above all, but Mayweather is at least saying publicly that he prefers to fight Manny Pacquaio on May 2nd if an agreement on finances can be reached.

CASIMIERO PREVAILS IN FLYWEIGHT ELIMINATOR

John Riel Casimero TKO2 Armando Santos... Former IBF junior flyweight titlist John Riel "Quadro Alas" Casimero (20-2, 13 KOs) won via second-round stopage over Mexico's Armando "Cobra" Santos (14-4-1, 8 KOs) in an IBF flyweight elimination bout held in Mexico this weekend. A left hook put Santos down hard at the conclusion of round one and Casimero finished the job on the still-dazed Santos seconds into the second round.  The win gives Casimiero, of The Philippines, the right to face Thailand's Amnat Ruenroeng (or his upcoming challenger Zou Shiming of China, should Shiming take the IBF title). The 24-year-old Casimero lost his IBF junior flyweight title on the scales seven months ago.  source: sampson boxing press release

THE BOXINGTALK SCOREBOARD: RESULTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Patrick Nielsen W10 Lukasz Wawrzyczek ... Danish middleweight Patrick Nielsen (23-1, 11 KOs) returned to winning ways in front of his home fans in Denmark over the weekend. Coming off a loss to Dmitry Chudinov, Nielsen outpointed Poland's Lukasz Wawrzyczek (20-4-2, 3 KOs). "This fight was all about rebuilding,’’ said Nielsen. "Mentally, it’s been difficult to get back on track following my loss in Moscow, but I did it and I’m very happy to get the win. Wawrzyczek was a tricky opponent. It was hard to get close to him, so I didn’t get the knockout that I was looking for. But the important thing is I’m back, and back with a victory. 2014 was not the best year for me, but 2015 will definitely be my year.’’ source: sauerland event

THURMAN TOPS BUNDU: RINGSIDE COVERAGE
Dontae Williams @ ringside

Keith Thurman W12 Leonard Bundu... In what was supposed to be an easy showcase performance for Keith "One Time" Thurman Leonard Bundu made the fight look more like Miguel Vasquez vs Mickey Bey. In other words, the fight was much closer then the 120-107 scores that all three judges had. Everyone surrounding me in the media section watching the fight felt the fight was very close. One thing that was very clear watching this fight is despite Thurman being a power puncher he is definitely not an inside fighter. After catching Bundu in the first round with a clean left hook and knocking him down, Thurman seemed to focus on nothing but landing one single knockout punch and when he couldn't land that "one time" shot again Thurman seemed to have a difficult time finding answers in the ring.
