title Kell Brook: Khan will eventually be forced to fight me

SHEFFIELD-BROOK-DANN3(Photo Credit: Lawrence Lustig) By Scott Gilfoid: Having no luck in getting Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) to commit to a fight against him, IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) is now saying that the 28-year-old Khan will eventually be forced into facing him due to the boxing public demanding the Khan-Brook fight. I’m not sure when that’ll be.

With the guys that Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn has been matching him up against, I really don’t know if we’re going to see the boxing public demand the Khan-Brook fight in mass due to there being much better fights for both of them. Read the rest of this entry »

stevenson6788-By Allan Fox: Former WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs) will be looking to dethrone WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) this Saturday night on April 4th at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

title Gary Russell Jr: Does he match-up against the elite?

Gary Russell Jr vs Jhonny Gonzalez(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Sebastian Mora: – First and foremost I would like to congratulate Gary Russell Jr. (26-1, 15 KOs) for proving a lot of people wrong with his 4th round knockout win over WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (57-9, 48 KOs) at the Palms Casino Resort, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, and for coming stronger and better after his first loss as pro.

Last night, Russell Jr. showed that not only can he beat you with speed and decent skills, but he can also sit in there and get you out. The fans knew he had K.O power, but a lot of them felt it was mostly due to the soft opposition that he was fed prior to his bout against last year Vasyl Lomachenko, and last Saturday night we found out that he can also use that combination of speed, power and skill against a proven veteran, that most people felt was going to win via a knockout.

title Russell Jr destroys Gonzalez; Charlo defeats Martirosyan

By Dan Ambrose: #7 WBC Gary Russell Jr (26-1, 15 KOs) proved to be much too fast and too powerful for WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (57-9, 48 KOs) in beating the aging 33-year-old champion by a 4th round TKO on Saturday night at the Palms Casino Resort, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The official time of the stoppage was 0:37 of the 4th. Read the rest of this entry »



title Khan congratulates Kell Brook on “easy work” win over Jo Jo Dan

brook54By Scott Gilfoid: While IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) was making a big deal about his 4th round stoppage win over #1 IBF challenger Jo Jo Dan (34-3, 18 KOs) tonight at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, Amir Khan called it “easy work” for Brook, which was a backhand compliment.

Khan knows what a lot of boxing fans know about the Brook-Dan fight, and that was it was a mismatch from the moment the contracts were signed. The IBF, with their upside down rankings, had Jo Jo Dan ranked #1 instead of #15. They even had Dan ranked above Khan, Tim Bradley, Diego Chaves and Devon Alexander, despite the fact that Dan had been beaten twice by Selcuk Aydin not long ago. Read the rest of this entry »



title Broner: Hopefully we [Khan] fight on June 6th at 147

broner123By Scott Gilfoid: Former three division world champion Adrien Broner (30-1, 22 KOs) says he wants to fight Amier Khan (30-1, 19 KOs) on June 6th in a fight that would take place at 147 pounds if Khan agrees to the fight.

The two of them had recently talked about wanting to face each other. It was thought that Broner was just talking to get attention from boxing fans and from writers in the sport. However, it now looks like Broner was dead serious when he called Khan out, because he’s saying he hopes Khan will face him in three months from now, presumably in Broner’s hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

title British Boxing is Back in the Ring

By Jonathon Fell: Unquestionably British boxing is in a great place right now. What I’m finding really captivating and gripping is the amount of upcoming bouts between British fighters who have earned their stripes by working their way up the rankings with a particular body and on certain occasions working their way in to the mandatory position for that respective strap.

title Brook stops Dan, knocks him down four times

brook6By Scott Gilfoid: In a fight that was a little more competitive than many boxing fans originally thought it would be, IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) says unbeaten with a 4th round stoppage win over an over-matched #1 IBF Jo Jo Dan (34-3, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield, Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

Brook knocked Dan down four times in the fight with two knockdowns in the 2nd and two in the 4th. Jo Jo Dan was bleeding from his nose at the end of the 4th round, as he had been knocked down twice. He staggered back to his corner after the round ended. Read the rest of this entry »



title Hearn keeping June 13th open for Brook vs. Khan fight

By Scott Gilfoid: Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn has the June 13th date open for his fighter IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs) for him to face Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) if he can get Khan to agree to take the fight.

Hearn has his doubts that the 28-year-old Khan will say yes to a fight against Brook, because he believes that Khan is afraid of losing the fight to Brook. Read the rest of this entry »
