Calling Fact or Fiction for the Biggest Rumors and Speculation in Boxing
Isaac Brekken/Associated Press

Rumor and gossip is something fans of most sports enjoy.

You could argue that boxing lends itself even more to the discussion of rumors on message boards and talk radio because of how it's structured.

In football, basketball and baseball, teams know who they'll play in each game months in advance during the regular season, and then they have a well-defined path to winning a championship with a set bracket in the postseason.

Boxing has none of those things.

With four titleholders in each division—not including the ridiculous super, interim and other made-up champions—and no organizing body with enough power to force fighters to face each other, rumors and whispers on who is fighting who swirl around faster than an F5 tornado.

My basic philosophy is: Don't believe anything until the ink is dry.

Over the next several slides, I'll take a lie detector test regarding the biggest rumors and speculation in boxing.
