title Lomachenko not interested in Rigondeaux fight at a catch-weight or at 122, he has to come up to 126

lomachenko566789By Chris Williams: If the WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KOs) wants a fight against the bigger, taller, and heavier WBO featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (3-1, 1 KOs), Rigondeaux will have to move up to featherweight and fight the 27-year-old Lomachenko in his weight class, because he refuses to accommodate the smaller 5’4” Rigondeaux by fighting him at a catch-weight in between the super bantamweight and featherweight divisions.

It doesn’t make sense for Rigondeaux to come up in weight to fight Lomachenko, because he doesn’t have a huge fan base in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »

title Helenius obliterates Csomor in 1st round TKO

helenius456By Scott Gilfoid: Sporting a Mohawk hairstyle, 6’6 ½” heavyweight Robert Helenius (20-0, 12 KOs) won his comeback bout in stopping the much shorter 5’11” Hungarian Andras Csomor (11-5-1, 9 KOs) in the 1st round of a scheduled 6 round bout at the Tondiraba Ice Hall, Tallinn, Estonia.

The fight was halted after Helenius knocked Csomor down with a right hand, and then pummeled him with shots after he got back to his feet. Csomor was helpless against the ropes while Helenius unloading on him with everything but the kitchen sink. The official time of the stoppage was 1:02 of the 1st round. Read the rest of this entry »

title Braehmer stops Krasniqi; Feigenbutz destroys Kelemen

braehmer336By Scott Gilfoid: In an outcome that was totally expected, WBA World light heavyweight champion Juergen Braehmer (46-2, 34 KOs) made easily work of a badly over-matched #2 WBA contender Robin Krasniqi (43-4, 16 KOs) in stopping him in between the 9th and 10th rounds on Saturday night at the Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.

title Sanchez: Golovkin is willing to fight Froch in the UK

By Scott Gilfoid: If WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) is looking for a big fight later this year after he finishes healing up from his elbow injury then he might want to consider a fight against unbeaten WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs).

Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez says that they’re interested in the Froch fight, and would be willing to fly over to England to take the fight if he’s interested.

Froch doesn’t have an opponent for his next, which he says he’d like to take during the summer. The fighter that Froch has talked of wanting to fight, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, is already scheduled to fight Andrzej Fonfara on April 18th, and there’s no way that Chavez Jr will be able to fight in the summer.

title Miguel Cotto vs. Cornelius Bundrage in the works for June 6th in New York

cotto67666By Dan Ambrose: It looks like WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) will be looking to fight an older guy from a lower division in facing 41-year-old Cornelius Bundrage (34-5, 19 KOs) in Cotto’s first and likely last title defense of his WBC 160 pound title on June 6th at a still to be determined venue in New York.

El Nuevodia is reporting that the announcement for the Cotto-Bundrage fight could come next week some time. On Friday, ESPN Deportes reported that Cotto would be fighting #1 WBC middleweight contender Jorge Sebastian Heiland next, but it looks like Cotto and his adviser Gaby Penagaricano are going with the better known fighter in Bundrage, even though he’s a lot older and he fights in the junior middleweight division.

title Alfonso Gomez defeats Yoshihiro Kamegai

gomezBy Dan Ambrose: 34-year-old former two time world title challenger Alfonso Gomez (25-6-2, 12 KOs) kept his career alive on Friday night in defeating #12 WBC, #12 WBO, #15 IBF welterweight contender Yoshihiro Kamegai (25-3-1, 22 KOs) by a 10 round unanimous decision at the Fantasy Springs Report Casino in Indio, California.

The final judges’ scores were 98-91, 98-91 and 98-91. Those scores were a little off though, because Gomez gassed out badly in the last three rounds and clearly lost those rounds unless you want to count holding and running as winning rounds. Read the rest of this entry »

title Is K2 hurting or helping Gennady Golovkin?

1-19By Robert “Lead Right” Elmore: Gennady Golovkin (or as I like to call him; The Tripster; Trip, and my new one Trip Hammer) has certainly won my respect. He is often accused of fighting second rate opponents just to pad his record. He’s been accused of ducking super middleweight Andre Ward; not having enough value to his name to match him against the likes of Miguel Cotto, Carl Froch, or Saul Alvarez. But allow me to clarify a few things here. One, please stop talking about him ducking Andre Ward. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao and Mayweather Jr. Training methods

By Jose Espinoza: “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”
Muhammad Ali

While we wait for the most important boxing fight of our generation, let’s take a look at how these two gladiators are preparing to face each other. Read the rest of this entry »

title Arum: Pacquiao will beat Mayweather decisively

By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says he’s noticed that Floyd Mayweather Jr doesn’t have the same ability to move around the ring like he did five years ago when Arum first attempted to put together a fight between Mayweather and his top money fighter Manny Pacquiao.
