title Brook: I took something out of Golovkin

By Dan Ambrose: Kell Brook is still taking credit for Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) giving middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) problems last Saturday night in their fight at Madison Square Garden in New York.

By Scott Gilfoid: Anthony “Million Dollar” Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) will be giving it another try tonight in his rematch against WBA lightweight title holder Jorge Linares (41-3, 27 KOs), but it doesn’t figure to end well for him at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Loeffler needs to make sure that he doesn’t come across as too needy when it comes to the negotiation with Golden Boy Promotions for the Canelo fight. Loeffler has got to make it clear that Golovkin has plenty of other options if he doesn’t get a fair deal for the Canelo fight. Read the rest of this entry »

Bellew, who holds the WBC cruiserweight champion, sees Crolla getting the victory by his high work rate. Crolla isn’t normally a high work rate type of fighter.

title Poor Floyd

By Brian Garnett: It is embarrassing to watch the best boxer of this era chase down a fight with a guy whom has never fought in a professional boxing match in Floyd Mayweather Jr. chasing a fight against Conor McGregor. It is disgusting to watch a guy to whom boxing has given so much to consistently dismiss current champions as not being “on his level” while promoting a fight with a novice. When asked about fighting a current boxing champion such as Keith Thurman Mayweather is quick to say that he has no interest in those fights or worse yet he will say he doesn’t know much about that fighter. That is utterly disrespectful to the sport of boxing. Read the rest of this entry »
