While Thanksgiving isn’t until Thursday, Freddie Foxxx is having his meal early by devouring the mic in the latest edition of DJ Premier’s “Bars In the Booth” series. Along with the legitimate tough talk, Bumpy Knuckles throws in a few gems about his history.

For those unaware, Eminem is a fan of the Sweet Science. Several years back, he even did some training with the late Emanuel Steward. With that background, it’s fitting his video for “Guts Over Fear” features the story of a blue-collar boxer getting his big chance in the ring.
“Guts Over Fear” was made for The Equalizer soundtrack, but you can find more Shady content from the new Shady XV compilation dropping today.

Rick Ross and K. Michelle’s fine (and crazy) self bring some visuals to their Hood Billionaire, Timbaland-produced collaboration “If They Knew.” I was ready to clown the laundry mat scenes but starting at the 2:45 mark, K. Michelle got me on the board with the vision. Hood Billionaire is in stores now.

Artists beings in love does not always equate to song chemistry. Debuted last night at the AMAs, “Start A Fire” has the production and chorus of a harmless pop song, but Wayne’ can’t help but get crass as he recalls past bedroom conquests and the infatuation for his current “hot girl.” Let’s hope this is just filled on Tha Carter V.

PACQUIAO: 143.8 LBS
ALGIERI: 143.6 LBS
PREDICTION: I got a chance to talk with Freddie Roach briefly before the weigh-in. He was confident that Pacquiao will end this fight by the third round with a left hand. I’m a bit more generous to the Long Island underdog (although I see the same ending). Algieri is rangy, but I’m certain Pacquiao’s combination of speed and power will shock him. I expect Manny to hurt him early but unlike Provodnikov, he won’t give Algieri time to fully recover and re-establish his offense. I see Algieri’s toughness getting him through an early knockdown but ultimately not being enough to see him to victory. PACQUIAO TKO5

WBC flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez extended his KO streak to seven with an efficient and dominating sixth round stoppage over Rocky Fuentes earlier today in Tokyo.
Gonzalez was in cruise control and did whatever he pleased with the overmatched Fuentes. The champion’s deadly accuracy was featured anytime the two got in close quarters with Gonzalez punishing the Fuentes with sharp hooks and uppercuts. The constant bodily harm caught up to the challenger in the sixth when a right uppercut through the guard for a knockdown. Fuentes beat the count but was summarily beaten into a corner, prompting the ref to call the bout with seconds remaining in the round.
The win was Gonzalez’s first defense of the flyweight strap he won in September by defeating Akira Yaegashi (TKO9). Of Gonzalez’s last 11 fights dating back to 2012, only Juan Francisco Estrada has lasted the distance. Estrada now holds the WBA and WBO flyweight belts via 11th round TKO over Giovani Segura in September. Should he defeat Joebert Alvarez on December 6, Estrada is expected to seek revenge against Gonzalez in early 2015.
