title Hearn says Joshua-Klitschko not done yet

joshua854

By Scott Gilfoid: There’s been a great deal of discussion in the boxing world about a fight between IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko for November 26, but unfortunately that fight is far from being made. Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn says the Joshua vs. Klitschko fight isn’t done yet.

It still remains to be seen who the 26-year-old Joshua will be fighting on that date at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK. Wladimir’s manager Bernd Boente says they’re waiting to hear from the World Boxing Organization about whether they’ll be stripping Tyson Fury of his WBO or WBA heavyweight titles following his recent pull out of his scheduled October 29 rematch against the 40-year-old Wladimir.

title Without Fury, will the boredom kingdom strike back?

fury11111

By Gerardo Granados: I can’t find the reason of why there is so much hatred towards the reigning Heavyweight Champion of the World Tyson Fury. Major media had never tried so hard to destroy the image of a heavyweight champion in the past. There have been ex-convicts and others who ended in prison who held the heavyweight crown, but none of them had been so criticized like the Gypsy King.

Tyson Fury is neither a puppet nor boring, he speaks his mind and I agree with him on many things he has said. Now days we have to be tolerant to many things but if you don’t fully agree with an issue then you risk to be called names and to be tagged as intolerant. Tyson wasn’t born in a golden cradle; he fought his way up, just like most prize fighters he made sacrifices to achieve success. He deserves respect not only as the heavyweight Champion of the World but mostly as a human being. Read the rest of this entry »



title Kell Brook was a punching bag for Golovkin says Arum

1-o2arena-golovkin-brook-38

By Scott Gilfoid: There seems to be a disagreement with fans of Kell Brook about how well he did in his 5th round knockout loss to middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and with some of the more knowledgeable boxing experts like promoter Bob Arum. While Brook’s fans think he was doing a swell job in the first four rounds against Triple G and leading by a three rounds to one scoring going into the 5th, Arum says Brook was little more than a punching bag for Golovkin once he realized that he couldn’t punch.

Arum says the fight wasn’t a real fight because of Brook not having the power to make Golovkin respect him. I have to agree with that. Brook looked like an arm puncher in the ring in that fight, and many of his shots were thrown with him leaping into the air, without him setting his feet like the talented fighters do. In other words, Brook undermined his own power by not setting his feet when throwing his shots. Read the rest of this entry »



title Sanchez hoping Golovkin-Jacobs can get made

1-golovkin (7)

By Dan Ambrose: With a match against Saul Canelo Alvarez not happening due to the Mexican star being injured and his promoters at Golden Boy not interested in making a fight, IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady GGG Golovkin is looking to face WBA “regular’ middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs next on December 10. HBO wants the fight, as it’ll be a big one for boxing fans, and Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez wants the fight to take place.

Sanchez is hoping that Jacobs doesn’t price himself out of the fight by asking for more money than the fight can provide. Sanchez suspects that Jacobs will be stripped of his WBA title by the World Boxing Association if he chooses to not take the place, because they’ve ordered the fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Will Amir Khan vs. Kell Brook finally be made?

khan612345

By Angel Flower: It’s no secret Kell “Special K” Brook and Amir “King” Khan have a pretty heated rivalry going on. Amir Khan has refused to fight Brook in the past because he felt Brook had not done anything to earn the fight and wanted too much money.

I can see this all changing now and expect these two dynamic fighters to finally give the people of the UK the biggest all UK fight of 2017 if not the biggest fight in the world. Fans from both sides of the ocean want to see this match up from two of the toughest men in boxing right now, their resume speaks for itself. Read the rest of this entry »



title Klitschko waiting for WBO to decide on Fury situation

wladimir1

By Eric Baldwin: It took Wladimir Klitschko just three days to find a replacement opponent for Tyson Fury, as it appears that the big 6’6” Ukrainian heavyweight will be facing Anthony Joshua in November or December for one of Fury’s titles. Klitschko and his management are waiting to find out what the World Boxing Organization will be doing with Fury as far as stripping him or not of his WBO heavyweight title.

Wladimir and Joshua could be fighting in November or December for one of the two titles that Fury has holding since last November after beating Wladimir by a narrow 12 round decision. For Wladimir and Joshua to face each other, they’ll need a title to be up for grabs. Read the rest of this entry »



title Cleverly looking to become two-time champion

cleverly6

By Eric Baldwin: It’s been three years since Nathan Cleverly (29-3, 15 KOs) lost his WBO light heavyweight title in getting blasted out by Sergey Kovalev in 2013, but this Saturday, Cleverly will be attempting to unseat WBA World 175lb champion Juergen Braehmer (48-2, 35 KOs) in Germany. It would be a big accomplishment and big news for Cleverly to beat Braehmer, because the German fighter hasn’t lost a fight since getting beaten by Hugo Hernan Garay back in 2008.

Braehmer has been matched pretty weakly since that time, so it’s kind of not surprising that he hasn’t tasted defeat in the last eight years of his career. You can argue that it’s fairly easy for fighters to stay unbeaten over an eight year period like Braehmer has if you fight the same kind of guys that he has. We’re not talking about superstars here when he talk about the level of competition that Braehmer has been feasting on. Read the rest of this entry »



title Saul Alvarez – Boxing’s Most Deserved Champion

canelo299

By Angel Flowers: There is a reason Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the only boxer left that can command pay-per-view dollars unlike most of his peers; he dares to challenge himself. Alvarez has already been in the ring with three future hall of famers such as Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Shane “Sugar” Mosley and Miguel Cotto, despite being only 25.

No other boxer in history can boast such accomplishments at such a young age as Saul Alvarez when you look at how he did it. After winning the World Boxing Council junior middleweight vacant title, Alvarez, despite numerous warnings, took on Austin Trout in order to unify the belts, which he later lost to Floyd Mayweather in 2013. Despite the fact Mayweather was considered the top pound for pound boxer in the world, Alvarez was willing to go down in weight from his natural 154 to 152 to make a fight that he would be seen as a huge underdog.

title Ingle: Kell Brook wants next fight in early 2017

1-o2arena-golovkin-brook-88

By Scott Gilfoid: Kell Brook has already had surgery on his broken right eye socket that he suffered against knockout artist Gennady Golovkin earlier this month on September 10 in London. Brook wants to get back inside the ring in early 2017 to resume his career. When Brook does get back into action again, he only wants to be fighting the best in boxing.

Brook specifically wants Saul Canelo Alvarez, Amir Khan and Miguel Cotto. That sounds like a good plan on the face of it, as Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) might be able to get one of those names to fight him straightaway in early 2017. However, it might become increasingly difficult for Brook to get all of those big names to fight him unless he starts winning again. Read the rest of this entry »



title Nathan Cleverly: I’m just hitting my peak!

cleverly77

By Scott Gilfoid: Nathan Cleverly (29-3, 15 KOs) will be challenging WBA 175lb champion Juergen Braehmer (48-2, 35 KOs) this Saturday night in a long awaited fight five years in the making in Germany. The fight is happening at the wrong time of their careers, as both fighters appear to be nearing the end. However, Cleverly believes that he’s just now hitting the peak of his career at 29.

The fact that Cleverly’s record is a pitiful 3-3 in his last six fights suggests otherwise. Fighters that are losing 50 percent of the time ARE NOT hitting their peak. They’re heading downhill, which is what I believe the case is with Cleverly. The thing is, we couldn’t really see how good or not so good Nathan was during the first eight years of his career, because he wasn’t being matching against quality fighters.
