title Which Round Will Wladimir Be Knocking Haye Out?

haye3434441By Jim Dower: The question is no longer whether IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitchscko will be knocking David Haye out, it’s what round. With a history of a glass jaw, which wasn’t helped by Haye’s 5th round knockdown by Monte Barrett in November, Haye, 28, is little better than an inflated cruiserweight with neither the size or the chin for the heavyweight division who instead of testing himself against other quality heavyweights to earn a shot against Wladimir, was propelled, some say unfairly, to what appears to be a title shot against Wladimir in the summer.

title Does De La Hoya Have Anything Left?

dela563446By Chris Williams: It’s sad to see when once great fighters stick around a little too long in the sport of boxing and end up taking a lot of punishment at the end of their careers. In most circumstances, fighters do it because they didn’t make enough money in their career. That’s what makes it seem so strange in the case of Oscar De La Hoya (39-6, 30 KOs). He’s a millionaire many times over and doesn’t need to keep fighting, especially now that he’s no longer fighting well. Read the rest of this entry »



title Pacquiao Wants a Bout With Either Margarito Or Mayweather

margarito2345122By Eric Thomas: In an article from Ron Borges at Thesweetscience site, Freddie Roach, the trainer for WBC lightweight champion Manny Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs), said that Manny wants a bout with Margarito, whom he thinks he can outbox. Roach further said that Pacquiao won’t ever be defending his WBC lightweight title and that if Juan Manuel Marquez wants a fight with Manny, he’s going to need to gain some weight and move up to the light welterweight division (140 lbs) and meet Manny there because that’s the weight class that Pacquiao will be moving to next.

title The Legend Of Charley Burley

By Adam Laiolo: Greatness isn’t always about how talented you are. Sometimes greatness is achieved just by doing the right things at the right time, and a lack of ability can be substituted for others traits such as determination and heart. Sometimes it just isn’t meant to be you, no matter how you strive and aspire to be the best. A name heard in big circles, a career known to smaller ones, Charley Burley may be the fighter we’ve all missed when we compile our own Top 10 etc. Read the rest of this entry »



title Calzaghe Needs To Retire Already

cal80767By Scott Gilfoid: I got to say I’m positively sick of hearing about whether Joe Calzaghe has made up his mind or not about retiring from boxing. I was hoping that he would man up and show some courage and fight a live opponent for a change like Carl Froch, Chad Dawson or Jermain Taylor but it looks like that isn’t going to be happening.
