By Derek Bonnett: Typically, I reserve this space in my weekly On the Move column for a single thought.

Next Man Up

By Steve Kim (Photo © Chris Farina / Top Rank): As the calendar turned to 2014 and Mikey Garcia was looking ahead to his fight versus Juan Carlos Burgos, the dominant storyline was that the talented Garcia was on the fast-track to eventually face Manny Pacquiao. Never mind Garcia was campaigning at 130 pounds and that the “Pac-Man” is a welterweight (who albeit, can probably easily move down to 140 pounds) but this would be the plan for Garcia.

Showtime at StubHub

By Steve Kim: This Saturday night, Showtime gets back into the business of broadcasting boxing from the StubHub Center in Carson, California, a noted fight venue where fistic magic seems to happen consistently.

The Best Laid Plans of Khan

By Gabriel Montoya: At age 27, life could not be more in transition for Amir “King” Khan, 28-3 (19). At the end of May, his new wife, Faryal will give birth to their first child, a daughter.

No game reminds you that ever impending old age renders everyone’s game over at some point. Khan is in a delicate place, still feeling mere moments The Best Laid Plans of Khan

Against the Odds

By Steve Kim (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): If you haven’t heard, Marcos Maidana, who faces Floyd Mayweather this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, is a heavy underdog.

Golden Civil War?

By Steve Kim (Image by icheehuahua, MaxBoxing): There really wasn’t much going on during the bout between WBC lightweight titlist Omar Figueroa and amateur nemesis Jerry Belmontes.
