title David Price ready to fight Anthony Joshua now!

price3By Scott Gilfoid: The big punching heavyweight David Price (19-2, 16 KOs) says he’s ready to face unbeaten #2 WBC contender Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs) right now. Price, 6’8”, feels like this is a good time to take on the 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist Joshua, because he would be getting him at the start of his career before he’s picked up experience.

Price, 31, would prefer to face the 6’6” Joshua with a title on the line, but that’s not going to happen because Joshua isn’t a world champion, and it’s unclear if he’ll ever win a strap. Read the rest of this entry »

title Golovkin’s promoter looking at other options after Froch’s promoter says he hasn’t decided to take fight or not

golovkin883By Scott Gilfoid: Tom Loeffler, the promoter for IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs), is moving his star fighter in another direction rather than sit and waiting forever for former IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) to make up his mind whether he wants to take the fight with Golovkin or not.

Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn says that Froch still hasn’t made up his mind yet whether he’ll take the fight or not. Hearn thinks Froch will hang up his gloves rather get in the ring with Golovkin. Read the rest of this entry »

title Four feasible names for Golovkin’s next fight

golovkin94By @BoxingMuse: Gennady Golovkin, Kazakhstan’s God of War, demolished the underrated, albeit overmatched Willie Monroe, Jr. at the The Forum in California last month. As soon as the fight was over fight fans began to wonder and suggest who the KO artist should and could face next. Although match ups against boxing’s biggest stars such as Carl Froch, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, Andre Ward and Miguel Cotto are desirable and possible, at this moment in time, they are not feasible for a number various reasons, which I won’t get into.

However there are a handful of names in and around the middleweight division that would make for an interesting bout. Read the rest of this entry »

title David Haye interested in Anthony Joshua fight at Wembley Stadium

hayeBy Scott Gilfoid: A ring rusty former two division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KOs) says he’d be interested in facing #2 WBC heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs) at some point in the future at Wembley Stadium in London, UK. Just when the 34-year-old Haye would be able and willing to fight the 25-year-old Joshua is the big question.

Haye hasn’t fought in three years since July 2012, and chances are we may see another year go by before Haye returns to the ring.

“I definitely think an all-British contest will be there for us,” Haye said to “Whether it happens or not depends on a lot of stuff. Read the rest of this entry »

title Return to the big time for Gonzalez or Magdaleno?

By Gav Duthie: The WBO ratings in the lightweight division are starting to take shape as Diego Magdaleno 27-1(11) faces former WBO title challenger Jose A Gonzalez 24-1(19) in an eliminator bout on June 26 in Hidalgo, Texas. The title at present is vacant after Raymundo Beltran couldn’t make weight when he stopped Takahiro Ao in a vacant title bout. Another fight has been scheduled between Brit Terry Flanagan and Mexican Jose Zepeda. One could argue that the eliminator bout is of a higher quality but time will tell.

title Arum says Pacquiao will go straight into rematch against Mayweather if it’s available

arum45By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says he’ll have his fighter Manny Pacquiao go straight into a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2016 if Pacquiao’s shoulder fully recovers from his shoulder surgery, and if Mayweather is willing to face him next year.

Arum won’t bother with a tune-up for Pacquiao to make sure his surgically repaired right shoulder will hold together. Arum says he wants Pacquiao to take the fight with Mayweather the first thing when he comes back. Read the rest of this entry »

title Deontay Wilder: I want all the belts, I’m greedy like that

(Photo Credit: Stephanie Trapp/SHOWTIME) By Scott Gilfoid: After working hard to win the WBC heavyweight title last January, unbeaten Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) isn’t about to let challenger Eric Molina (23-2, 17 KOs) take it off him on Saturday night in their fight on Showtime Championship Boxing.

Wilder isn’t going to let Molina have a chance of pulling off a big upset on Saturday night because he plans on scoring a quick knockout of the 6’5” fighter. Deontay wants to unify all the titles in the near future, as soon as he can get IBO/IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko to fight him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Danny Garcia finally vacates WBC 140; Should step aside agreements be banned?

garcia100By Gerardo Granados: Once up on a time I would believe anything that I saw on TV or the newspapers, but now I can see how boxing politics and people behind the screen can influence our opinion.

The Pay Per View was a great addition to prize fighting and cable TV allowed fighters to have a lot of promotion while increasing the purses the boxing stars earned on title bouts, but somewhere in the middle the quality of match making changed. Read the rest of this entry »
