title Wilder wants Fury: Is it paper talk from Deontay?

By Steven Ocallaghan: I see that heavyweight “sensation” Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) is calling out unbeaten heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (19-0, 14 KO’s). Now I’m no great fan of Fury as I think he has limits but limits above Wilder.

The quality of fighters each has faced tells it’s own story. Fury has been on the deck and in trouble against tough Canadian Neven Pajkic, but showed a lot of heart in getting back up and stopping Pajkic in the next round. Remember, Pajkic was 16 fights undefeated and a top 50 fighter. Take note Deontay. Read the rest of this entry »

title Fury to fight in Vegas

title Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto II: A Rematch Worth Watching

title Broner vs. Guerrero = A good stay busy fight for Adrien

By Scott Gilfoid: Adrien Broner and WBC welterweight interim champion Robert Guerrero had words on twitter earlier Tuesday and it’s painfully obvious that they don’t like one another.

By Jason Kim: WBA World heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin (24-0, 16 KO’s) was given a real gift by the World Boxing Association by them making 39-year-old former WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (50-7-2, 41 KO’s) his mandatory challenger for a fight on September 29th at the Sporthalle, Alsterdorf, in Hamburg, Germany.

title Deontay Wilder wants Tyson Fury, but doesn’t see him taking the fight

By Scott Gilfoid: American heavyweight knockout artist Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) is very interested in taking on 24-year-old Tyson Fury and showing him who the better fighter is if he’s interested. I kind of doubt Fury is interested in facing a talent like Wilder, because Fury already passed up a chance to fight David Price. Read the rest of this entry »

By Dan Ambrose: WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32 KO’s) looks far from being in tip top shape in his training camp for his September 15th fight against former WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO’s) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Read the rest of this entry »

By William Mackay: Former 2000 Olympic Gold medalist for Britain Audley Harrison (28-5, 21 KO’s) blames his 3rd round TKO defeat at the hands of WBA heavyweight champion David Haye in November 2010 on fighting with an injured right pectoral muscle that prevented Harrison from throwing the shots that he could have and would have had he been injury free.
