title Mikey Garcia: Broner wants to be friends so I don’t beat him so bad

By Jeff Aranow: Mikey Garcia has strong suspicions about the ultimate motives of former 4 division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner for his reasoning to be overly friendly with him since they signed for their July 29 fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Broner isn’t usually super friendly with his opponents. Read the rest of this entry »

title Lampley: Canelo likely to go down if he trades with GGG

By Dan Ambrose: HBO commentator Jim Lampley says Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the more likely one to go down if he starts trading power shots with IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs). Lampley rates GGG’s punching power to be better than Canelo’s, and he sees him as potentially too strong for the red-headed start when they get in there fighting on September 17th on HBO PPV.

title Canelo-GGG NYC presser

By Greg Houghton: For quite some time, myself and many other boxing fans thought this event would never happen. Seeing Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and GGG’s faces projected on the same poster is almost as difficult to comprehend as when we finally saw Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao in the ring together.

title Canelo: I want to make it clear I’m better than GGG

By Dan Ambrose: On September 16, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez says he wants to make it clear to the boxing world that he’s better than Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Canelo doesn’t want the fight to be a close one, because he doesn’t want a second or third fight with him. He wants to dominate the way he’s been doing lately against guys like Amir Khan, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Liam Smith. Canelo hasn’t been involved in a close fight in the last 3 years since his 12 round split decision win over Erislandy Lara in 2014. Read the rest of this entry »

title Amir Khan – The Man Who Would Be King

By Seán Skehan: It was the summer of 2004 and the GB amateur boxing team was in Athens with its sole participant for the Olympic Games, Amir Khan. Khan was a phenom. Born in Bolton, into a Punjabi Rajputs family, he had started fighting competitively at eleven years of age. In his junior amateur days, he had won English school and junior AIBA titles, and in 2003 won gold at the Junior Olympics in Detroit, Michigan. By the time the Athens games rolled around, he was firmly positioned to explode into the senior amateur ranks and the national consciousness. Read the rest of this entry »

title Andre Ward: All is Fair in Love and War

By Donavan Leonard: Sergey Kovalev wore a cap to the final press conference with the word “WAR” emblazoned across the front. Unfortunately for Kovalev, he did not appear to understand the full meaning of the word the following night in the ring with Andre Ward. As has been well documented, Ward (32-0, 16 KOs) retained his titles with an 8th round TKO victory over Kovalev (30-2-1, 26 KOs). Unfortunately, the discussions have been more about the low blows, the ineptitude of the referee, and the quick stoppage than about the performance of Ward. Read the rest of this entry »

By William Mackay: Former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux and current WBO 160 pound belt holder Billy Joe Saunders traded insults on social media on Tuesday in taking jabs at one another.

title Broner: I’d beat everyone Mikey has beaten

By Dan Ambrose: Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-, 24 KOs) isn’t as impressed with Mikey Garcia (36-0, 30 K0s) and his flashy record as a lot of boxing fans are. Broner says he would not only beat all 36 of the guys that Mikey Garcia has beaten, but he’d do a better job of it by knocking out all 36 of them. Read the rest of this entry »

title Kovalev admits that Andre Ward was better in rematch

By Chris Williams: Former light heavyweight champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev showed some humility in admitting that Andre “SOG” Ward was the better in their rematch last Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s good that Kovalev, 34, is coming out and being a good sport. The last thing boxing needs is another sour loser. It’s time for Kovalev to move on now. He tried his best, but he wasn’t good enough to beat Ward. Kovalev needs to take his career in another direction. If you can’t beat a fighter on two attempts, then you need to move on. The last thing Kovalev needs right now is a third straight loss to Ward. Read the rest of this entry »
