If you took every boxing news seriously these days you’d probably end up in the madhouse.

Boxing sites that have “scooped” the supposedly done deal for the Pacquiao/Mayweather superfight have been left squirming in pure embarassment.

Michael Koncz is the current hot topic these days with how he has been handling Filipino boxers fighting in the Americas.  He seems to enjoy the full confidence of Congressman Pacquiao as a trusted adviser, but will the recent news be able to affect that?
