title Fury: I think I’m ready for the title; I did a better job against Chisora than Vitali

By Scott Gilfoid: Some fighters don’t know how limited they are until it hits them over the head and they get flattened. Unbeaten Tyson Fury (18-0, 13 KO’s) seems like he’s just begging to get knocked out. He’s got a fight coming up on Saturday night against Vinny Maddalone (35-7, 26 KO’s), and it would seem like a winnable one for the 6’9″ Fury, but we’ll have to see about that. I have my doubts after seeing how emaciated Fury is after a long training camp and a healthy, perhaps too lean of a diet. Read the rest of this entry »

title Bute: That wasn’t the real Lucian Bute that lost to Froch

By Scott Gilfoid: Former IBF 168 lb. super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (31-1, 24 KO’s) took the opportunity to speak out earlier today about his disappointing upset loss to Britain’s Carl Froch last May, and Bute cleared up some of the reasons why Froch, a much slower fighter, was able to beat him.

title Robert Guerrero: A win over Aydin and I’ll be Mayweather’s mandatory

By Dan Ambrose: Robert Guerrero (29-1-1, 1 KO’s) badly wants a fight against WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. How bad does the 29-year-old Guerrero want that fight? He wants it so bad that he’s willing to move up two entire divisions coming off of serious rotator cuff surgery on his left shoulder in order to get that fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao-Bradley II is the smart move by Arum

By Chris Williams: When you get a vehicle that’s starting to get old on you, you’ve got to take it easy on it otherwise you’re likely to be stuck on the road in the middle of nowhere. I see the same thing for Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s). The Filipino isn’t aging well at all. Read the rest of this entry »

title Chavez Jr. can’t take Sergio Martinez’s big shots

By Dan Ambrose: I hope for WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr’s sake that his trainer Freddie Roach is going to try and teach him some defense before he steps in the ring to fight former WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO’s) on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Dirrell: I’m chasing down Froch

By Scott Gilfoid: Super middleweight Andre Dirrell (20-1, 14 KO’s) has his eyes on the prize and wants a revenge rematch with IBF super middleweight champion Carl Froch so bad he can taste it. This is why Dirrell has agreed to face a fighter that no one wants to fight right now in Adonis Stevenson. Read the rest of this entry »

This will be one of the few fights that the 6’6″ Wladimir has had in which his opponent is nearly as tall as him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Donaire will struggle if Mathebula doesn’t move at him

By Chris Williams: If you look at any of WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire’s fights you’ll notice that he does well against fighters that bum rush him like Vic Darchinyan and Fernando Montiel, but does terrible against fighters that box and move like Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. and Omar Narvaez.

title Martirosyan says “yes” to Lara bout

By Dan Ambrose: Unbeaten junior middleweight contender Vanes Martirosyan (32-0, 20 KO’s) has sealed his fate by agreeing to fight #3 WBC Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KO’s) in a World Boxing Council ordered WBC 154 pound elimination bout with the winner to become the mandatory challenger to WBC junior middleweight champion Saul Alvarez.
