title Gavin: Brook definitely has weaknesses I can exploit

gavin434By Scott Gilfoid: Frankie Gavin (22-1, 13 KOs) says he sees weakness in the game of IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) that he thinks he can exploit this Saturday night in their fight at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

Gavin says Brook leans forward too much and he feels he can nail him with shots. Gavin may be right about that because Brook has never been hard to hit in any of his fights. He had to resort to holding Shawn Porter all night long in order to slow down his offense. Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan worried about frightening Mayweather with his speed against Algieri

khan456By Scott Gilfoid: Like most fighters, Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) look good every time out so that he can impress boxing fans, and get the bigger fights. But in the case of his scheduled bout this Saturday against Chris Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs), Khan is worried about looking too good and potentially frightening away Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Khan wants to fight Mayweather in September this year in what would be Mayweather’s last fight of his career. Khan wants to be the one that sends Mayweather into retirement with a loss. Read the rest of this entry »

title Froch: I can take Golovkin’s power and end his unbeaten record

froch0034552By Scott Gilfoid: Despite the lure of huge money and tons of potential respect from boxing fans, former IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) hasn’t been able to make a decision whether to fight unbeaten IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) in a fight that would take place at the UK.

Froch isn’t sure whether he should retire and rest on his laurels from wins over guys like Mikkel Kessler, Lucian Bute and George Groves, or if he should take a risk and fight someone that is actually a top level fighter and still in his prime in facing Golovkin. Read the rest of this entry »

title Kevin Mitchell confident of victory against Jorge Linares

mitchell4By Scott Gilfoid: Fighting for a world title for the second title in his 12-year pro career, #1 WBC Kevin Mitchell (39-2, 29 KOs) is confident he’ll have his hand raised in victory on Saturday night when he challenges WBC lightweight champion Jorge Linares (38-3, 25 KOs) at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

Mitchell, 30, will have the hometown advantage due to the fight taking place in the UK rather than Linares’ home in Tokyo, Japan. It’s going to be awfully tough for Mitchell though because Linares is arguably much better than Ricky Burns, a fighter that crushes Mitchell in just 4 rounds in 2012 in the last time that Mitchell challenged for a world title.

title Beterbiev faces Ngumbu on June 12th on Spike

beterbiev1022By Dan Ambrose: #2 IBF, #4 WBA, #4 WBC, #5 WBO light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (8-0, 8 KOs) will be looking to add another knockout victory to his impressive record next month against 33-year-old Doudou Ngumbu (34-6, 13 KOs) on June 12th in a scheduled 12 round bout on Spike TV on Premier Boxing Champions from the UIC Pavilion, in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

There’s little question whether the 30-year-old Beterbiev will win the fight, but he can impress fans if he’s able to score a knockout over the 33-year-old Ngumbu, who has only been knocked out once during his career in losing by a 5th round stoppage to the hard hitting Najib Mohammadi three years ago in June of 2012.

title Froch doubts Kevin Johnson can beat Anthony Joshua

joshua66By Scott Gilfoid: It’s still unknown at this point whether #6 WBC heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (12-0, 12 KOs) will ever rise above beating 40+ old journeyman level fighters that his promoter Eddie Hearn has been routinely feeding him one after another like Hors d’oeuvres, but one person thinks the 6’6” Joshua is the real deal is former IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch.

Froch believes that Joshua is an impressive fighter. Froch thinks that Joshua will beat his opponent for this Saturday, 35-year-old journeyman Kevin Johnson (29-6-1, 14 KOs), without too many problems. Read the rest of this entry »

title DeGale asking for trouble if he faces Gennady Golokvin

1-_MG_1199By Scott Gilfoid: James DeGale (21-1, 14 KOs) is very interested in facing IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs). If Carl Froch doesn’t face Golovkin, then DeGale surely will unless his promoter Eddie Hearn has something to say about it.

It’s still unclear if the 29-year-old DeGale is truly interested in facing Golovkin. Perhaps it was only the euphoria from winning the IBF super middleweight title last Saturday after DeGale narrowly beat Andre Dirrell by a close 12 round unanimous decision. Read the rest of this entry »

title Robert Guerrero needs a good victory over Aaron Martinez on 6/6

guerrero444688888By Dan Ambrose: Robert
Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-3-1, 18 KOs) will be looking to get a good victory on June 6th when he faces Aaron Martinez (19-3-1, 4 KOs) in a 10 round bout in a must win fight for the 32-year-old Guerrero on NBC on Premier Boxing Champions at the StubHub Center, in Carson, California, USA.

Things haven’t been going too well for Guerrero in his last three fights. He’s lost two out of his last three fights, and the one fight he did win against Yoshihiro Kamegai proved to be a grueling affair with Guerrero taking a lot of punishment in the process of winning a 12 round decision last year in June.

title Andre Ward should call DeGale’s bluff and agree to fight him

ward56344By Scott Gilfoid: After his victory over Andre Dirrell last Saturday, James DeGale (21-1, 14 KOs) claimed that WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) would never choose to fight him. It’s unclear where DeGale was going with this comment.

Did he mean that Ward wouldn’t waste his time fighting a guy like him, or did DeGale mean that Ward was afraid of fighting him for whatever reason? I can’t imagine a talent like Ward would be hesitant to fight a guy like DeGale, who really just scraped by Dirrell last Saturday. Read the rest of this entry »

title James DeGale in need of a new trainer?

1-_MG_1857By By Jordan Davies: First off I would like to congratulate James DeGale on winning the IBF Super middleweight world championship against Andre Dirrell in his own backyard by way of decision (117-109, 114-112 twice respectively) last Saturday night in Boston, Mass.

DeGale was up on the scorecards early in the fight scoring two knockdowns in the 2nd round and seemed to be too much for the American could handle. However, it seemed he decided to coast to a decision mid way through the fight by not engaging instead frustrating Dirrell by retreating onto the back foot. Read the rest of this entry »
