My 2013 Sports Alchemist Boxing wish list

My 2013 Sports Alchemist Boxing wish list

Manny Pacquiao – with his recent knockout loss it’s really not a lucky punch but maybe a friendly reminder that his time is up. Forget about Floyd Mayweather Jr., it’s time to think about your health and your family. You have made boxing proud, and your legacy will always be forever remembered. But it’s time to call it quits; you got a good path ahead of you; it’s time to do your battle in politics.

Juan Manuel Marquez – it was a good choice to think deep about your future and have contemplated about hanging up your gloves. You got nothing to prove anymore. However, one last final fight won’t harm you either. You have shown your guts and strength in knocking Manny Pacquiao out. Maybe a fight with Adrien Broner would be best.

Nonito Donaire Jr. – this is the year to step up and fight the big names in boxing. If Abner Mares is not available, then move up and challenge Juan Manuel Lopez or Yuriorkis Gamboa. It’s the only way to move up in the pound per pound rankings. If you have done that, then without question you will be boxing’s pound per pound king.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. – One last fight before retirement. I don’t care if you call Manny Pacquiao, have a rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez or move up and fight Sergio Martinez. We just want to see you fight.

Roy Jones Jr. – why oh why are you still fighting?

The Heavy Weight division – is it possible to clone Mike Tyson and bring back the glory days on this division?

Andre Ward and Sergio Martinez – this is the super bout that is bound to happen this 2013. Andre should push for this fight considering that Martinez had suffered multiple injuries on his recent fight against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. At age 37, I don’t know how much wear and tear Martinez’ body can take.

Saul Canelo Alvarez – A fight with Miguel Cotto would be good for his career. Cotto is still a good fighter; he fought a gallant fight against Mayweather last May and if Canelo wins his fight convincingly this could be his breakout year in the pound per pound rankings.

Bernard Hopkins – at age 47, you should not be selfish in sharing your fountain of youth. You can still move up in the heavy weight division and challenge one of the Klitschko’s.

Top rank and Golden Boy – I know you both have egos to feed. But I think it’s high time to think more of boxing rather than yourselves. You owe it to the fans. Let’s make this happen.
