1. James Bagg, Jr. (@jamesbaggjr): If you haven't yet stopped whatever it is that you're doing right now to follow the above accounts, follow this one. Bagg isn't a boxing writer, but if there's a kingdom of social commentary on the state of boxing's characters, Bagg is its undisputed king. He's also the master of the subtweet, and has hilariously trolled everyone from Ray Pop (if that name means nothing to you, it will soon) to the illustrious Al Bernstein.
As one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year is ready to take place on Saturday night between Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, bettors have a unique opportunity to take advantage of real line value. According to sportsbookreview.com Canelo Alvarez is a +135 (wager $100 to win $135) underdog in some sportsbooks referring to the boxing odds for this middleweight clash. This fight is a boxing purist's dream.
It's no secret that Oscar De La Hoya was upset, to put it gently, that the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight took place just weeks prior to what could be considered from a boxing purist's standpoint, not only the best matchup of 2017 but possibly one for the ages. I mean, let's be real. You have to love De La Hoya's passion and competitive nature.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
