Golovkin to be at ringside for Murray vs. Spada fight on Saturday

Martin Murray Domenico Spada  george groves By Scott Gilfoid: WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golokvin (31-0, 28 KOs) will be a ringside this Saturday night to watch the clash between #1 WBC Martin Murray (28-1-1, 12 KOs) and #7 WBC Domenico Spada (39-5, 19 KOs) at the Salle des etoiles, in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

The chances are that Golovkin could fight the winner of that fight next February. However, it’s still not certain he’ll fight Murray if he wins. Murray is talking about a win over Spada would make him eligible to fight any of the world champions, not just Golovkin. Read the rest of this entry »



Groves’ next fight to be announced in 24 hours, could fight on Bellew-Cleverly 2 card

 george groves By Scott Gilfoid: EBU super middleweight champion George Groves (20-2, 15 KOs) will be in action likely before the end of the year. He’s rumored to be fighting on the undercard of next month’s Nathan Cleverly vs. Tony Bellew 2 card, according to the Liverpool Echo. Groves’ promoter Kalle Sauerland said the date, venue and opponent for his next fight will be announced tomorrow.

Groves will likely be facing a fringe level opponent so that he can get slip in a stay busy fight to try and sharpen up for his eventual world title shot against WBC super middleweight champion Anthony Dirrell. Groves had been hoping to face Dirrell before Christmas, but that obviously isn’t going to be happening. Read the rest of this entry »

Khan Alexander Khan vs. Alexander  devon alexander amir khan By Scott Gilfoid: Former two division world champion Devon Alexander (26-2, 14 KOs) sees himself having an easy fight against the 28-year-old Amir Khan (29-3, 19 KOs) in their upcoming fight on December 13th at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Alexander says his speed, skills and southpaw stance are going to give Khan a lot of problems when they get inside the ring on 12/13. In fact, Alexander feels this is going to be an easy fight for him. Read the rest of this entry »



Amir Khan, an example of what’s wrong with boxing today

 amir khan By Hector Gonzalez: There were rumors circulating a couple of weeks ago that Amir Khan was going to fight Robert Guerrero. I was looking forward to that fight, however this Monday it was officially announced that Amir Khan is going to instead fight Devon Alexander instead of Robert Guerrero.

It’s a bit disappointing because Khan vs Guerrero is the more exciting fight, especially because there is bad blood between the two. The reality is that Khan has instead chosen the safer path in going with Devon Alexander with the intention that if Khan is to be victorious he would have a shot at fighting Floyd Mayweather come May of 2015.

Devon Alexander: “Floyd Mayweather doesn’t like fighting Black fighters”

 floyd mayweather jr devon alexander amir khan By Danny Esch: In a previous article that I wrote here on BN24 “The Blueprint to beating Floyd Mayweather 2nd Opinion” I quoted a statement from Adrien Broner and in a few comments I was told that I was being “Racist”.

The quote in question was from Adrien Brown after his fight with Taylor post fight in the ring and the question was asked from Showtime’s Jim Grey: “Was he (Taylor) tougher than what you expected?” Adrien Broner’s response was “OH NO no disrespects to you Jim but he’s (Taylor) an African American I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BE TOUGH”!

The whole Keith Thurman Mandatory issue is old news now and Thurman has a fight coming up against undefeated European Welterweight Champion Leonard Bandu instead of Devon Alexander. Read the rest of this entry »



James DeGale, going nowhere fast.

 james degale By Daven: After comprehensively defeating Brandon Gonzales in arguably the most relevant bout of his career since the controversial encounter with George Groves, many assumed James “Chunky” DeGale would consequently vie for the IBF title within the year. Actually, this was explicitly promised by Eddie Hearn on a public platform. We were led to believe that DeGale joined Matchroom for the purpose of first raising his profile and second to obtain a world title fight.

To his credit, “Chunky” stuck to his end of the bargain by conquering the undefeated yet jet-lagged Gonzales in an apparent “world-title eliminator” in front of 80,000 spectators. However Eddie has not delivered the promised title fight. Instead placing James in an additional eliminator. DeGale is putting on a brave face publicly, suggesting Froch is too afraid to fight him. To those of us in the loop, it is obvious Froch is not afraid of James at all. Sadly, the “Cobra” not unlike thousands of boxing enthusiasts, simply regards Degale as a fringe contender, even though he looked impressive last time out. Read the rest of this entry »



One missed fight does not tarnish an entire legacy

By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: Some boxing fans crack me up when they post something that reads “if fighter A does not fight fighter C then fighter A legacy is tarnished”. Really? Since when did this rule come into effect? If this is this case then boxing is full of tarnished legacies. Read the rest of this entry »



Tyson Fury: I challenge Anthony Joshua after I smash Chisora

 tyson fury derek chisora anthony joshua By Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten #4 WBO, #5 IBF, #11 WBC heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) is targeting unbeaten heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua (9-0, 9 KOs) for a fight after Fury takes care of business against Dereck Chisora (20-4, 13 KOs) on November 29th at the ExCel Arena in London, UK.

Fury obviously has heard Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn opening his yap about how he thinks Joshua will be ready to beat Fury by next year, and Fury looks like he wants to take Hearn on his word by pushing for the fight. Read the rest of this entry »



Scott Quigg battles Hidenori Otake on Bellew-Cleverly 2 card on 11/22

Hidenori Otake  scott quigg By Scott Gilfoid: Rather than face Guillermo Rigondeaux, who badly wants to fight him, WBA World super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (29-0-2, 22 KOs) will be defending his title against little known Hidenori Otake (22-1-3, 9 KOs) of Japana on the Tony Bellew vs. Nathan Cleverly 2 fight card next month on November 22nd at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, UK.

#3 IBF, #11 WBO has a record that is filled with wins over largely mediocre opposition, and it’s kind of mind-boggling that the International Boxing Federation and WBO has him ranked in their top 15. Read the rest of this entry »



Jean Pascal faces Donovan George on December 6th on Bute-Bolonti card in Montreal, Canada

Don George  jean pascal By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) will be fighting the hard hitting super middleweight Don George (26-4-2, 22 KOs) on December 6th on the undercard of the Lucian Bute vs. Roberto Bolonti fight at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

It’s not a particularly great fight, but neither is the Bute-Bolonti fight. Both of them stack up to be mismatches. If you’re into seeing mismatches then this is the fight card for you, because I can’t see either of these fights as being competitive. Read the rest of this entry »

The southpaw Yamanaka knocked Rungvisai down three times in the fight in dropping him in the 7th, 8th and 9th rounds with hard left hands. In the 9th, Rungvisai was docked a point for attempting to throw Yamanaka to the canvas. Read the rest of this entry »



Arum included rematch clause in Pacquiao’s contract for Algieri fight

Pacquiao Algieri Pacquiao vs. Algieri Chris Algieri  manny pacquiao By Chris Williams: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, wanting to cover his bases, says he inserted a rematch clause in the contract for the November 22nd fight between his fighter WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao and his non-Top Rank opponent Chris Algieri.

Arum wanted to make sure that if the 35-year-old Pacquiao gets beaten by Algieri, he’ll be able to get him a rematch so that he can try and avenge the loss and win back his WBO title. But if Pacquiao does lose to Algieri by getting out-boxed, Arum might not be doing the Filipino star any favors by having him fight Algieri a second time. Read the rest of this entry »
