title Arum and Pacquiao want Mayweather fight to happen

pac555By Chris Williams: After missing out on a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2009 due the fight not being negotiated because of the random blood tests that Mayweather wanted, Manny Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum are really hoping that they can set up a fight with Mayweather in early 2015.

Arum and Pacquiao both feel that Pacquiao’s wins over Brandon Rios, Chris Algieri and Tim Bradley were big enough wins to get him a fight against Mayweather. Unfortunately, I’m not sure that Mayweather agrees with them, as those victories were hardly what you can call huge wins. Read the rest of this entry »

title Amir Khan vs. Devon Alexander to be televised on Sky Sports

By Scott Gilfoid: Next month’s clash between #1 WBC, #2 WBA, #5 WBO Amir Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) and #4 IBF Devon Alexander (26-2, 14 KOs) will be televised on Sky Sports 1. This is a big deal for Khan, because he hasn’t beaten a solid opponent since his win over Marcos Maidana way back in 2010. Read the rest of this entry »

title Chisora vs Fury: The Calm Before The Storm

chisora5645by Owen Hammond: The waiting is almost over for the highly anticipated Bad Blood event tonight at London’s ExCel arena. I have recently previewed the chief support fight, Saunders vs Eubank Jr, and I now turn my attention towards the main event which sees Tyson Fury (22-0-0, 16 KOs) challenge Dereck Chisora (20-4-0, 13 KOs) for Del Boy’s EBU Heavyweight title. The fight is also for the vacant British Heavyweight belt, but perhaps more importantly doubles up as an eliminator for the WBO Heavyweight title currently heald by the machine that is Wladimir Klitschko.

title Terence Crawford vs. Raymundo Beltran tonight on HBO

By Dan Ambrose: WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford (24-0, 17 KOs) will be making his second and likely his last defense of his World Boxing Organization 135 pound title tonight against #1 WBO Raymundo Beltran (29-6-1, 17 KOs) on HBO from the CenturyLink Center, in Omaha, Nebraska, USA.

title Roach thinks Pacquiao-Mayweather fight will happen in 2015

pac0000By Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach thinks WBO 147lb champion Manny Pacquiao’s win over little known Chris Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs) on November 22nd was a big enough victory to get Pacquiao a big money fight against WBA/WBC 147 pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 26 KOs).

Roach thinks that Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum will be able to set the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight up in 2015 despite the fact that Mayweather has said repeatedly that he won’t fight Pacquiao has Juan Manuel Marquez problems, and that he wouldn’t fight him until he’s clear of Arum.

title Provodnikov stops Castillo in 5 rounds

By Dan Ambrose: In a less than impressive performance earlier tonight, former WBO light welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov (24-3, 17 KOs) chopped down 40-year-old former IBF lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo (66-13-1, 57 KOs) in a 5th round knockout at the Luzhniki GCKZ “Russia” Arena in Moscow.

Provodnikov hurt Castillo with a left hook to the head in the 5th that put him on the canvas. Moments later, Castillo hit the deck for the second and final time after getting hit with some hard hooks.

Castillo did a good job of holding his own in the first three rounds of the fight, as he was able to avoid most of Provodnikov’s big power shots. Castillo nailed Provodnikov frequently with uppercuts while in close, and he did a superb job of negating the Russian fighter’s offense. Read the rest of this entry »

title Weights: Fury 264, Chisora 241.5

fury55By Scott Gilfoid: Weighing with his clothes on today, a bearded Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) weighed in at 264 pounds for his rematch against Dereck Chisora (20-4, 14 KOs) on Saturday night at the ExCel Arena in London, UK.

Chisora will be defending his EBU heavyweight strap, and the vacant British heavyweight strap will be on the line. The most important thing up for grabs for this fight is the WBO eliminator. The winner of the Chisora-Fury 2 fight will be the WBO mandatory to champion Wladimir Klitschko. Read the rest of this entry »

title Fury vs Chisora & Saunders vs Eubank Jr. Bad Blood Preview & Predictions

fury4by Ciaran McKInney: This coming Saturday, after what seems like an endless stream of press conferences, retirement threats and pre-fight antics, the boxing world will watch ‘Bad Blood’. The card will be headlined by the rematch of Tyson Fury vs Dereck Chisora. This domestic level bout will see the british and European straps up for grabs, however, the real prize of this bout, is the mandatory position for a fight with Wladimir Klitschko some time in 2015. This fight could potentially be a fight of the year candidate in the heavyweight division. It has all the ingredients, two hungry combatants, big punchers and a grudge that has played out over the course of the past 4 years. Read the rest of this entry »

title In This Corner: Heavyweight Prospect Joseph Parker

Gerardo Granados: When was the last time the reader heard of a great fighter who came out of New Zealand? I recall one name and the reader must remember it too; Bob Fitzsimmons, who was born in England but raised in New Zealand where he became a boxer before finally moving to the United States of America. Of course it is too soon to tell if Joseph Parker will become a boxing star or even less to assume he is the future of the heavyweight division, but still I consider him as a very interesting young talent that fight fans should follow before we have to pay expensive PPV to be able to watch him fight.
