By Scott Gilfoid: Despite two huge fights being on the horizon against unbeaten WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) and Britain’s Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs), IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 53 KOs) is totally focused on his fight this Saturday night on HBO Championship Boxing against America’s Bryant Jennings (19-0, 10 KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York.

title Fight of the year 1985 – Hagler v Hearns (30 years ago) – Part 3

hagler44468By Gav Duthie: Promoter Bob Arum labelled the 1985 super-fight between Marvelous Marvin Hagler 60-2-2 (50) and Thomas ‘The Hitman’ Hearns 40-1 (34) simply ‘The War’. He certainly wasn’t wrong, what transpired was arguably the greatest 8 minutes in boxing history.

title Pacquiao says he’ll talk to Mayweather about a rematch after the fight

1-35By Dan Ambrose: Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) hasn’t yet faced Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 26 KOs) yet, but already Pacquiao is talking about possibly having a talk with Mayweather after the fight about a potential rematch between them.

It’s something that would make sense for both of them regardless of how one-sided the fight turns out to be. The two fighters can still make a lot more money facing each other than they could if they were to fight other opponents. That’s the positive thing about it. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan wants Pacquiao fight

khan67777By Scott Gilfoid: Having been pretty much ignored by WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his attempts to get a fight against him, Britain’s Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) has turned his attention to trying to scrape up a big payday fight against WBO welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) for later this year or sometime next.

Khan wants to fight Pacquiao because he thinks he can beat him, and he sees the fight helping establish him as the next start in boxing. Khan has been around for a long time in fighting as a pro for the past 10 years, but he’s been unable to become a superstar in the sport like other more fortunate fighters like Pacquiao, Mayweather, Miguel Cotto and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez have.
