Will anybody be shocked if/when Harrison knocks Haye out on November 13th

Haye Harrison Haye vs. Harrison  david haye audley harrison By William Mackay: Since moving up to the heavyweight division in 2008, WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (24-1, 22 KO’s) has had things pretty cushy. Instead of taking on dangerous younger fighters like Odlanier Solis, Denis Boytsov and Alexander Povetkin, to name just a few, Haye has gone after a senior citizen’s row of older fighters like 38-year-old Monte Barrett, 36-year-old Nikolay Valuev and 38-year-old John Ruiz. On November 13th, Haye will be facing another older fighter in 38-year-old Audley Harrison (27-4, 20 KO’s) at the M.E.N. Arena, Manchester, Lancashire. Read the rest of this entry »

Dirrell says Ward fight is “Just Postponed, not off”

Dirrell Ward Dirrell vs. Ward  andre ward andre dirrell By Scott Gilfoid: For boxing fans wondering about whether Andre Ward (22-0, 13 KO’s) and Andre Dirrell (19-1, 13 Ko’s) were going to be dropping out of the Super Six tournament. Dirrell, 26, had this to say in response to Dan Rafael on his Twitter page, “Just postponed as I know, not off.” Dirrell, of course, is talking about his scheduled September 25th Super Six tournament bout against Ward, a fight which they still don’t have a venue for after all this time. The venue has been the main sticking point in arranging the fight. Dirrell already has fought once in a foreign country and he lost a controversial decision to Carl Froch in Dirrell’s first fight of the Super Six tourney. Read the rest of this entry »

Mayweather Pacquiao Mayweather vs. Pacquiao  manny pacquiao floyd mayweather jr By Chris Williams: Floyd Mayweather already apologized to Manny Pacquiao for the comments he made on his Ustream video.

Ariza thinks Pacquiao’s smaller size will be an advantage for him against Margarito

Pacquiao Margarito Pacquiao vs. Margarito  manny pacquiao antonio margarito By Dave Lahr: Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza believes that Manny Pacquiao, who he just happens to work for, will have an advantage against two-time welterweight champion Antonio Margarito because of his smaller size on November 13th. In an article by Ronnie Nathanielsz at Inquirer.net, Ariza, speaking about the advantages of being smaller, said “An advantage because to fight a small guy, you have to make yourself small. It’s no secret that Margarito doesn’t move his feet, he doesn’t move well, he doesn’t move side to side and a smaller guy can create more problems than fighting a guy your own size who is there in front of you all the time.” Read the rest of this entry »

Rafael says Dirrell and Ward are trying to get out of September 25th fight

Tyson Fury to fight Rich Power on 9/10 on Shobox

Fury Power Fury vs. Power  tyson fury By Sean McDaniel: With two of his previous opponents pulling out of his scheduled September 10th fight, unbeaten Tyson Fury (11-0, 9 KO’s) has a new opponent in 30-year-old unbeaten American heavyweight Rich Power (12-0, 9 KO’s) for their fight at the York Hall, Bethnal Green, London. Dan Rafael is reporting that Power will be Fury’s replacement for Donnell Holmes, who pulled out of the fight recently. Let’s hope that Power makes it to the fight with the 22-year-old Fury. However, Power doesn’t have much in the way of experience aside from wins over little known B level opponents. This may not be an interesting fight for Fury’s first appearance in front of U.S. fans.
