In an article Walesonline.co.uk, Calzahge, 38, had this to say about coming back: Read the rest of this entry »

Marquez-Diaz: Look for Diaz to continue to have problems with uppercuts

Marquez vs. Diaz  juan manuel marquez juan diaz By Sean McDaniel: WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (50-5-1, 37 KO’s) will be fighting a needless rematch against Juan Diaz (35-3, 17 KO’s) next month on July 31st, at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a fight that’s kind of hard to understand why it’s being made other than to bring money for the fighters. Marquez, 36, wiped Diaz out last year in a 9th round TKO in February 2009.

Ward expects a grueling fight from Green on 6/19

Green Ward Green vs. Ward  andre ward allan green By Matt Stein: World Boxing Association super middleweight champion Andre Ward (21-0, 13 KO’s) expects a grueling fight from once beaten Allan Green (29-1, 20 KO’s) when they meet up in their stage 2 Super Six tourney bout at the Oracle Arena, in Oakland, California. Whereas Green has been predicting a knockout victory, Ward is just content to a win and doesn’t have a hang up about trying to score a knockout. Ward, 26, says “At this stage and this level you have to be ready for everything the opponent has to bring. In my mind, I’m preparing for a very physical and very grueling fight. And if there is anything left, then that’s fine. That’s what I’m prepared for to do whatever needs to be done to keep my title. I never wanted to be a guy who won a title and then lost it to his first defense. I want to be a guy that reigns for a long time.” Read the rest of this entry »



Berto wants to stay at welterweight, but will fight move down in weight for mega fights

Berto Quintana Berto vs. Quintana  andre berto By Jason Kim: WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (26-0, 20 KO’s) plans on staying at welterweight rather than moving down to the light welterweight division to pick off the young stars like Devon Alexander, Timothy Bradley, Marcos Maidana, Amir Khan and Victor Ortiz.

Berto, 26, in an article by Dan Rafael of ESPN, said “Nah, [talking about whether he would move down to the light welterweight division] maybe a catch weight if it makes sense for a huge fight. I wouldn’t go all the way Read the rest of this entry »



Foreman wants rematch with Cotto after his leg heals after surgery

Cotto Foreman Cotto vs. Foreman  yuri foreman miguel cotto By Jim Dower: Former WBA junior middleweight champion Yuri Foreman (28-1, 8 KO’s) wants a shot at a rematch against Miguel Cotto (35-2, 28 KO’s) after getting stopped in the 9th round by Cotto on June 5th at Yankee Stadium in New York. However, it’s not likely to happen, as Cotto says he wants to go after only popular fighters for the big money fights and Foreman doesn’t fall into the category. Read the rest of this entry »



Meyer says “Kessler must have broken his [Froch] pride”

Froch Abraham Froch vs. Abraham  carl froch arthur abraham By William Mackay: Arthur Abraham (31-1, 25 KO’s) and former WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (26-1, 20 KO’s) still haven’t decided the venue for their next Super Six tournament fight.

Harrison says “Haye is open to getting knocked out”

Haye Harrison Haye vs. Harrison  david haye audley harrison By Sean McDaniel: Audley Harrison (27-4, 20 KO’s) thinks he has a good chance of knocking out WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (24-1, 22 KO’s) if he gets selected as an opponent for Haye. Harrison, 38, is looking like he’s gong to be next up for the 29-year-old Haye rather than the Klitschko brothers. Read the rest of this entry »



Sauerland wants a Super Six-like cruiserweight tournament

By Eric Thomas: Dan Rafael is reporting that Kalle Sauerland, of Sauerland Events, is hoping to out together a cruiserweight tournament along the same lines as the Super Six tournament to get attention to their cruiserweights that they have in their stable. It’s obviously a good idea for Sauerland, because they have two of the best cruiserweights in the world with Marco Huck and Steve Cunningham, both of which currently hold titles in the cruserweight division.

Duddy-Chavez: I’ve no doubts that John can beat Julio but will he get the decision?

Duddy vs. Chavez  julio cesar chavez jr john duddy By Jim Dower: I figure that middleweight contender John Duddy (29-1, 18 KO’s) will be far too experienced and talented for unbeaten Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (41-0-1, 30 KO’s) when they do battle later on this month for the obscure vacant WBC Silver middleweight title on June 26th at the Alamodome, in San Antonio, Texas.

I see Duddy as being far too good for the 24-year-old Chavez to beat. However, I worry that Duddy may not get the decision no matter what he does in the ring on that night. San Antonio is pretty much a home town advantage for the Mexican Chavez Jr., and he’s got the much bigger name, thanks to his famous father Julio Cesar Chavez. Read the rest of this entry »



Boxing needs to change!

By Johnny Barreto: Ask any true boxing fan and they will all tell you, boxing needs a revamp of all its rules. Most fans ask themselves, why do we have a WBC, WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO, and WBO?

Well, we the boxing fans are sick and tired of all this BS and we demand a F”bleep” change. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Pacquiao overrated?

Mayweather Pacquiao Mayweather vs. Pacquiao  manny pacquiao By Sam Singh: Looking at Manny Pacquiao’s record and he’s only had 12 championship bouts. His record in these fights is 9 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. That doesn’t include his close but clear loss to Eric Morales.
