title Golovkin-Jacobs & Gonzalez-Rungvisai replay tonight on HBO

By Chris Williams: HBO Boxing will be televising the replay of the Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs and Roman Gonzalez vs. Srisaket Rungvisai tonight. The card will begin at 10pm ET/PT on HBO. This is the replay of last Saturday’s fight card on HBO pay-per-view, which saw Golovkin edge Jacobs by a 12 round unanimous decision, and Rungvisai send the previously undefeated “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (46-1, 38 KOs) down to defeat by a 12 round majority decision. Both fights were controversial unfortunately. Read the rest of this entry »



title Prediction: Linares KOs Crolla

By Scott Gilfoid: Anthony “Million Dollar” Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) will be giving it another try tonight in his rematch against WBA lightweight title holder Jorge Linares (41-3, 27 KOs), but it doesn’t figure to end well for him at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Crolla already lost to the talented be shaky-chinned Linares last September in losing a 12 round unanimous decision. Read the rest of this entry »



title Canelo vs. Golovkin fight MUST happen says Loeffler

By Eric Baldwin: Now that Gennady “GGG” has dodged a bullet with his close win over Danny Jacobs last Saturday night, Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler is saying that a mega-fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez MUST happen in September for the fans. Loeffler needs to make sure that he doesn’t come across as too needy when it comes to the negotiation with Golden Boy Promotions for the Canelo fight. Loeffler has got to make it clear that Golovkin has plenty of other options if he doesn’t get a fair deal for the Canelo fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Bellew: Crolla will beat Linares with his better work rate

By Jeff Aranow: Tony Bellew is predicting that Anthony Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) will emerge as the winner on Saturday night in his rematch against WBA World lightweight champion Jorge Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. Bellew, who holds the WBC cruiserweight champion, sees Crolla getting the victory by his high work rate. Crolla isn’t normally a high work rate type of fighter. He’s more of a fighter that likes to jab slowly and work himself in position to throw his body shots. Read the rest of this entry »



title Poor Floyd

By Brian Garnett: It is embarrassing to watch the best boxer of this era chase down a fight with a guy whom has never fought in a professional boxing match in Floyd Mayweather Jr. chasing a fight against Conor McGregor. It is disgusting to watch a guy to whom boxing has given so much to consistently dismiss current champions as not being “on his level” while promoting a fight with a novice. When asked about fighting a current boxing champion such as Keith Thurman Mayweather is quick to say that he has no interest in those fights or worse yet he will say he doesn’t know much about that fighter. That is utterly disrespectful to the sport of boxing. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin-Jacobs does 170K PPV buys on HBO

By Eric Baldwin: The pay-per-view numbers are now out for IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin’s fight last Saturday night against Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs on HBO, and they’re not great with just 170,000 PPV buys. According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Golovkin’s promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions has confirmed the 170,000 PPV buys for the Golovkin-Jacobs fight on HBO. What this means for boxing is not likely good. Read the rest of this entry »



title Eubank Jr. wants Bellew fight

By Jeff Aranow: IBO super middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. has called out WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew for a catch-weight fight following some trash talking he did about him on Sky Sports. Bellew really went after Eubank Jr. in pointing out that he’ll get beaten once he faces someone with some boxing skills in his division. Bellew doesn’t think too much of Eubank Jr’s IBO title, which it appears he doesn’t respect a great deal. Read the rest of this entry »



title Canelo must approve Golovkin deal

By Jim Dower: Oscar De La Hoya has pulled the verbal $15 million flat fee offer that he had previously made to Gennady Golovkin for a fight against his fighter Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in September. This comes after the reports of Golovkin’s low pay-per-view numbers on HBO for his fight last Saturday night against Daniel Jacobs. The new offer that De La Hoya will be giving to Golovkin will be based on pay-per-view sales for the Canelo fight rather than a guaranteed purse. Read the rest of this entry »
