thurman33By Yannis Mihanos: Keith “One Time” Thurman(25-0, 21 KOs) put on a boxing clinic last Saturday night in defeating Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero by a 12 round unanimous decision on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Khan with few options for his May 23rd fight

khan45673By Scott Gilfoid: Well, it looks like Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) won’t be getting a big name or even a moderately good name for his next fight.

According to Fighthype, the 28-year-old Khan is looking to fight on May 23rd. But unfortunately for Khan all the top fighters will be either busy with another fight, or recovering from a fight. You can see that as a negative or a positive for Khan depending on how you want to look at it.

Adrien Broner said earlier today that he’d be willing to fight Khan at the end of this month. However, I’m not so sure that their adviser Al Haymon is going to want to match the two of them together. Read the rest of this entry »

rubioBy Reynaldo Sanchez & Javo Ramos Martinez: The well-known trainer Jorge Rubio and his assistant Alex Hernandez continued his winning streak in 2015, and early in this year, were outlined as one of the most successful duos coaches of South Florida. Jorge Rubio and Alex Hernandez are working together in the gym located in the Doral city at. 8295 NW 56 St. Miami, Fla. 33166.

In December 2014, Rubio and Hernandez went to Spain with “now No. 17-ranked WBC 122-pound”, Hairon “El Maja” Socarras, and there, they succeeded impressively beating the previously ranked # 10 Jesus Galicia, with a devastated KO in the 2nd round that left no doubt of the quality of Socarras.

title Mayweather will figure out Pacquiao after two rounds, says Jeff M

floyd99By Chris Williams: Jeff Mayweather, the uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr, sees nothing special at all in Manny Pacquiao.

Jeff sees Pacquiao as a guy that is totally predictable in the way he fights, and he doesn’t see him as being versatile enough for him to have a chance of beating Mayweather in their fight on May 2nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jeff says that Pacquiao throws the same kind of combinations every time, and he always jump in and out the same way. Jeff thinks Mayweather will figure out Pacqiiao after two rounds and then dominate him the last 10 rounds of the fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Tarver dares Shannon Briggs to fight him

tarver33By Gav Duthie: One might think Antonio Tarver and Shannon Briggs are the same. Washed up 40 something year old ex-champions looking for a big payday. The difference seems to be Tarver has some morals and standards as to how he gets that shot. 

Shannon Briggs

Shannon Briggs thinks he can insult Wladimir Klitschko on twitter, follow him around Europe to his training camp, his press conferences and even in public to goad him into fighting. Read the rest of this entry »

title DeGale not worried about fighting Dirrell in America: “I’m still making history”

degale546By Scott Gilfoid: Earlier Tuesday, Warrior Boxing won the purse bid for the James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) – Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) to stage the fight. The news means that the DeGale-Dirrell fight will be staged in the United States, as Warrior is said to be affiliated with Dirrell’s adviser Al Haymon.

This is a huge blow to DeGale and his promoter Eddie Hearn, who were both hoping to win the purse bid in order to stage the fight in England. That isn’t going to happen now. Read the rest of this entry »

title Broner: I’ll fight Amir Khan at the end of the month!

broner456By Scott Gilfoid: After making easy work of John Molina last Saturday night in clowning him in a 12 round unanimous decision, former three division world champion Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KOs) says he’s ready to take on former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) at the end of this month to give him a boxing lesson like the one he gave Molina.

The way Broner sees it, he didn’t take any damage in his fight against Molina, so why not get in the ring and add Khan’s scalp to his collection. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan: I won’t be fighting on Mayweather-Pacquiao undercard

khan53By Scott Gilfoid: Britain’s Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) says he won’t be fighting on the undercard of the May 2nd mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao. Khan says the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight doesn’t need a “great undercard” in order for it to be successful.

The fact that Khan isn’t fighting on the undercard has to be construed as a real negative for the 28-year-old Khan, and a clear sign that he’s not going to be in the picture in a fight against either of these guys. Read the rest of this entry »
