title Adonis Stevenson calls out Froch after smashing Bellew

stevenson54By Scott Gilfoid: WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20 KO’s) wasted no time in calling out IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch for his next fight after making easy work of a painfully over-matched and incredibly slow Tony Bellew (20-2-1, 12 KO’s) in a 6th round knockout on Saturday night at the Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Moments after knocking Bellew out, Stevenson said “I want Carl Froch and Bernard Hopkins.”

Froch had an opportunity to fight Stevenson earlier this year, but he decided to fight Mikkel Kessler again rather than take what would have been a very dangerous fight against Stevenson. Read the rest of this entry »

title Stevenson stops Bellew; Kovalev destroys Sillakh

stevenson55By Jim Dower: WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20 KO’s) stopped challenger Tony Bellew (20-2-1, 12 KO’s) in the 6th round on Saturday night at the Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Stevenson knocked Bellew down with a left hand to the head in the 6th round. After a badly hurt Bellew got back to his feet, Stevenson tagged Bellew with a solid left hand to the head that had Bellew do a chicken dance with his legs. Stevenson then tagged Bellew one more time with a big left than snapped his head back violently. The referee then waived off the fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Manny Pacquiao wants revenge against Bradley

pac453By Mark Havey: It wasn’t too long ago that the world witnessed the Filipino legend tear his way through numerous weight divisions. Along the way he accumulated many belts and big name scalps on his record. However, times catches up with us all. Manny Pacquiao was eventually knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez. Fans and writers predicted the end of a great champion.

Last weekend we saw the former pound 4 pound king, Manny Pacquiao, return to winning ways. The Iron jawed Brandon Rios made it to the final bell but was dominated. In fact it was hard to give him a single round. Read the rest of this entry »

title Chisora stops Pala in the Third: Controversial but Rightful Stoppage

By Michael Byrne: Already people are in uproar about about British heavyweight Derekc Chisora’s third-round stoppage win tonight over Ondrej Pala. Chisora, a few feet away from the corner with his back to it, beat Pala into the corner with hard combinations, leaving Pala slumped over the corner, and his arms over the ropes. Chisora then proceeded to rabbit punch him flush in the back of the head, and throw another hook around the head, before the ref stepped in and waved it off without counting or consulting Pala.

title Chisora stops Pala on rabbit punch

By Scott Gilfoid: WBA International heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora (19-4, 13 KO’s) defeated Ondrej Pala (32-4, 22 KO’s) by a 3rd round TKO on a beautiful rabbit punch to the back of the head when Pala turned his back after falling into the ropes at the Copper Box Arena, in London, UK.

title Canelo vs. Cotto bout expected to be announced next week

canelo901By Dan Ambrose: A mini-mega fight between Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KO’s) and former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KO’s) is expected to be announced this week for March 8th, according to Husleboss. The fight will be on Showtime pay-per-view from the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This fight pits two former victims of Floyd Mayweather Jr. to face off. The winner could find himself back in with Mayweather, as it would be the most appealing option for them.

Golden Boy Promotions recently offered Cotto $10 million+ to take the fight with Canelo, and it seemed pretty obvious that was going to take it. He said he wanted to think it over, because he was also considering a fight against WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez for his 160 lb. belt. Read the rest of this entry »

title If Pacquiao beats Bradley, fans will want Mayweather next, says Roger

pac562By Chris Williams: Roger Mayweather believes that Manny Pacquiao has a real chance at creating a huge drumbeat for a bout against his nephew Floyd Mayweather Jr. if Pacquiao faces WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley next and proves that he can beat him this time. Roger thinks that a win for Pacquiao over Bradley will result in a huge amount of fan excitement about a potential mega fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather.

Roger is only guessing, of course. Fans might not be excited as much as he thinks, and it could go really bad if Pacquiao gets beaten again by Bradley. Pacquiao lost a 12 round split decision to Bradley last year in June in a fight that could have gone either way. Neither fighter looked good, and if you think Pacquiao shined in that fight, you’re kidding yourself. He seemed capable of fighting only one minute of every three minute round.

title Bellew: I’m not coming here to lose to Adonis

HBO Boxing After Dark Weigh-In: Adonis Stevenson vs Tony BellewBy Scott Gilfoid: Tony Bellew (20-1-1, 12 KO’s) has himself all worked up for tonight’s fight against WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (22-1, 19 KO’s), and with the way that he’s been talking, it almost feels like it’s a do or die type of a fight for the 31-year-old Bellew at the Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Bellew said to the Liverpool Echo “Come Saturday night, there’s only going to be one winner. He’s got to understand that I’m not coming here to lose. People have no idea what is at stake and how far I’m willing to go. He can’t beat me. I’m 6’3″ and he is so small. He looks like he’s fallen off my key ring. He is not getting to me. I was getting to him towards the end of the press conference.” Read the rest of this entry »

title Chisora vs. Pala tonight in London

chisora500By Scott Gilfoid: EBU heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora’s latest mismatch is tonight when he defends his strap against Ondrej Pala (32-3, 22 KO’s) at the Copper Box Arena in London, UK. I’ve lost track of all the guys that pulled out of this fight. Don’t expect much in terms of a fight.

The heavily tattooed Pala has faced extremely limited opposition during his career. He’s got victories over a 43-year-old Henry Akinwande, Konstantin Airich, Robert Hawkins, Darnell Wilson, Arthur Cook, and Oleksiy Mazikin. Those are the only recognizable wins I can see on his resume, and I’m not impressed with any of them. Pala also has losses to Rene Dettweiler, Denis Boytsov and Airich. Read the rest of this entry »

title Fear of Failure is what keeps Mayweather away from Pacquiao

mayweather22235By Robbie Bannatyne: The sheer volume of articles which have inevitably surfaced about a Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao super fight since the Filipino announced his comeback, with a ruthlessly efficient performance against Brandon Rios, last Saturday at the Cotai Arena, in Macao, China, have been pretty limited in scope, despite their proliferation.

The vast majority of them have only really catered for the two main topics of; who would win and will the fight happen.

However, I have read some fascinating articles which have covered the contentious issue of why the fight has yet to materialize, despite it being the most anticipated match up in decades. Read the rest of this entry »
