By Chris O’Brien: As the dust settles on Anthony Joshua’s sensational heavyweight showdown with Wladimir Klitchsko, it’s clear that their eleven-round classic at Wembley was exactly the contest boxing’s heavyweight scene needed.

The edge-of-seat entertainment value, the manner of AJ’s victory and the demeanor of the two giants combined to deliver a great sporting story, which enthralled the public far beyond boxing’s fan base, and leased fresh life into the sport’s heaviest division.

Last Saturday’s action matched the pre-match furor, and everyone wants to talk about it. Read the rest of this entry »

Roach isn’t sure if Canelo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya wants to take the risk yet of having his “cash cow” Canelo beaten by GGG, so he’s not sure if we’ll see the Canelo-Golovkin fight yet.
Roach thinks that the 35-year-old Golovkin has slipped a bit recently with his last 2 fights against Daniel Jacobs and Kell Brook, both of which he still beat. Read the rest of this entry »
