Khan to join Pacquiao in training camp in the Philippines

By William Mackay: World Boxing Association (WBA) light welterweight champion Amir Khan (23-1, 17 KO’s) is reportedly going to be flying over to the Philippines to train with Manny Pacquiao and their mutual trainer Freddie Roach so that Khan can help Pacquiao get ready for his November 13th fight against Antonio Margarito, while at the same time get ready himself for his December 11th bout against knockout artist Marcos Maidana (29-1, 27 KO’s) at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Is Froch fully focused on Abraham?

By Scott Gilfoid: With all fuss that former WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (26-1, 20 KO’s) has been making over his loss to Mikkel Kessler last April, you have to wonder if Froch will be ready for his next Super Six tournament fight against Arthur Abraham (31-1, 25 KO’s) on November 27th at the Hartwell Arena, in Helsinki, Finland. Froch was beaten in his last fight by Kessler in a 12 round decision and the defeats seems to have hit Froch hard, because it seems like he can’t stop talking about it.

Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana: An Honest Analysis

By Castillo Fuentes: I’ve come across a lot of writers on this site (whom I won’t name just to save their respect-if they have any left) who are always taking numerous shots at WBA light-welterweight champion Amir Khan (23-1 17 KO). Recently, Khan agreed to a fight with the electrifying Argentinean, Marcos Maidana (29-1 27 KO), on December the 11th in Las Vegas on HBO. Obviously, one can say that Khan’s chin will be tested, because, as the record suggests, Maidana is capable of knocking out a racehorse. Read the rest of this entry »



Joe Calzaghe measured against all-time

by Sam Singh: Cliff Rold, generally speaking, is a respected writer within the boxing world. Rold is a member the Ring Magazine Advisory Panel, the Boxing Writers Association of America and the Yahoo Pound for Pound voting panel.

Despite Rold’s flashy credentials I feel compelled as an avid follower of the sweet science to voice my firm disagreement in response to his recent article on Joe Calzaghe. Read the rest of this entry »



Should Pacquiao do random blood testing for his fight with Antonio Margarito?

By Marquise Bullock: Okay, we all know random blood testing isn’t required for the November 13th fight, but should Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KO’s) go through with it just to make a point against his opponent Antonio Margarito? Pacquiao is sitting on the boxing thrown right now and he could demand anything from the Mexican slugger, just as you’ve seen with the unforgiving catch weight of 150 pounds. Antonio Margarito is a proven cheater, whether he likes it or not, but sadly some boxing fans believe the same about Pacquiao. So should Pacquiao take blood testing all of the way up to the fight to prove a point. Read the rest of this entry »

McCloskey looks too slow to beat Khan

By Sean McDaniel: After defeating challenger Barry Morrison (18-5, 8 KO’s) on Saturday night by a 7th round stoppage, European Boxing Union (EBU) light welterweight champion Paul McCloskey (22-0, 12 KO’s) called out WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (23-1, 17 KO’s) for a bout. However, the 31-year-old McCloskey would likely have almost next to no chance at beating Khan if McCloskey was even able to get the fight with him. Read the rest of this entry »



Glen Johnson will likely be weight drained and won’t be effective against Allan Green

By Dan Ambrose: The choice of picking 41-year-old light heavyweight Glen Johnson (50-14-2, 34 KO’s) to square off with Allan Green (29-2, 20 KO’s) in the 3rd stage of the Super Six tournament is going to be a bad one, as far as I can tell. Picking a fighter as old and as big as Johnson to replace WBC super middleweight champion Mikkel Kessler strikes me as both short sighted and desperate. Clearly, Showtime chose Johnson because he was better known than some of the other options that they could have selected due to Johnson’s fights against Chad Dawson. Read the rest of this entry »



Can Amir Khan retool if/when Maidana knocks him out on December 11th?

By Matt Stein: World Boxing Association (WBA) light welterweight champion Amir Khan (23-1, 17 KO’s) will be taking on his first real puncher in Marcos Maidana (29-1, 27 KO’s) since Khan was knocked out in the 1st round two years ago by Breidis Prescott. Although Khan has won his last five fights since that loss, it’s been against fighters with zero power and ones that were tailor made for Khan. After dragging his heels what seemed like forever, Khan has finally agreed to face the hard hitting Maidana. Read the rest of this entry »



Chisora’s trainer says “He [Klitschko] is there for the taking”

By William Mackay: Don Charles, the trainer for British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Derek Chisora (14-0, 9 KO’s) thinks his fighter Chisora is going to pull off a huge upset of IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) on December 11th, if the Chisora-Klitschko fight can be successfully negotiated. In an interview by Paul Foley at Boxrec.com, Charles says “Leon Spinks won the heavyweight title after just eight fights, so why not? Just like Leon, we are going to shock the world.” Read the rest of this entry »



Hopkins vs. Pascal – Still no undercard picked out for this December 18th fight

By Dan Ambrose: The December 18th fight between 45-year-old Bernard Hopkins ((51-5-1, 32 KO’s) and World Boxing Council (WBC) light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (26-1, 16 KO’s) still doesn’t have an undercard to go along with this fight. You have to wonder who they’re going to lump with this fight. Likely, it will be a few Canadian prospects, but hopefully someone decent like middleweight David Lemieux or someone of that caliber.

Is Malignaggi capable of beating anyone at 147?

By Jason Kim: With former International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi (27-4, 5 KO’s) signing with Golden Boy Promotions and saying that he intends on fighting at welterweight (147 lbs), you have to wonder who Malignaggi is capable of beating at that weight. Given how weak of a puncher that the 29-year-old Malignaggi was at light welterweight (140 lbs), you can’t figure that he’ll be any stronger at welterweight. Read the rest of this entry »



Pacquiao losing weight instead of gaining it for Margarito

By Eric Thomas: Manny Pacquiao is taking on Antonio Margarito at a catch weight of 151 pounds for their fight on November 13th, at the Cowboys Stadium, in Arlington. One worrisome problem is that Pacquiao, with six weeks of training still ahead of him, is losing weight instead of gaining it according to Roy Lucera at Inquier.net, Pacquiao is losing weight and is down to 147. If he keeps losing weight, he could find himself below 140 and that would put Pacquiao at a huge disadvantage against the bigger 5’11” Margarito. Read the rest of this entry »

By Jim Dower: Unbeaten heavyweight contender Alexander Povetkin (19-0, 14 KO’s) will be returning to the ring this month against Nigerian Teke Oruth (14-2-1, 6 KO’s) on October 16th in a scheduled 10 round bout at the Olimpyskiy Sports Palace, in Chekhov, Russia. Read the rest of this entry »



Kell Brook to fight on December 11th

By William Mackay: British welterweight champion Kell Brook (22-0, 15 KO’s) will be back in action on December 11th at the ExCel Arena, in Dockland, London. There’s still no opponent for that date. It was hoped that Brook, 24, would take a major step up in competition and take on undefeated Mike Jones (22-0, 18 KO’s), but that fight likely isn’t going to be taking place now until early 2011. However, hopefully a good opponent can be found to fight Brook and give him his first taste of top opposition. Read the rest of this entry »
