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 »

title Broner: I’d beat everyone Mikey has beaten

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 »

Ward defeated Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev last Saturday night by an 8th round knockout. After the fight, Ward said he’s interested in possibly moving up to cruiserweight or heavyweight to compete in those divisions. Ward’s unbeaten record is important. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather V Mcgregor – The question no one is asking

By Sam Genge: As every reader would know by now, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor Mcgregor will face each other in Las Vegas on August 26. Virtually every article or post that I have read about the fight is about Floyd completely dominating Connor and how much of a mismatch this fight is. However, there is still a question that no one seems to be asking, maybe because we simply won’t know the answer until fight night. Read the rest of this entry »
