title Woods retirement Watch: Still No Announcement from Clinton

By Scott Gilfoid: With four days having elapsed since former IBF light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods was defeated by Tavoris Cloud last Friday night, there is still no word about a retirement announcement from the 37-year-old Woods. Before the fight, Woods had hinted about retiring if he lost the fight. Well, Woods lost the fight by a 12-round unanimous decision against the 27-year-old Cloud, but Woods still hasn’t come forward to say whether he’ll be in fact retiring or not.

title Amir Khan: Can He Hold onto His Title for Long?

khan438By Scott Gilfoid: WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (21-1, 15 KO’s) is a special kind of fighter. He punches with blazing speed, and moves around the ring better than most light welterweights in the division. To see him throw punches, you’d think that he’s unbeatable. The problem is Khan has a chin like glass and has been knocked down again and again during his four year pro career by even light punchers. Read the rest of this entry »

title Does Arreola have a chance Against Klitschko?

By Sean McDaniel: Unbeaten heavyweight Chris Arreola (27-0, 24 KO’s) looks to be a long shot to beat WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (37-2, 36 KO’s) next month on September 26th, at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, California. Arreola, 6’4”, matches up more or less in the height department against the 6’7” Klitschko, but as far as the ability to move around the ring, block punches or box, Arreola is far less skilled than the 38-year-old Klitschko.

title Would the Super Six Work for the Cruiserweight Division?

huck532456By Dave Lahr: In case you might not be aware, the cruiserweight division is one of the most ignored divisions in boxing. Outside of the most hardcore of boxing fans, few people could name who the current champions are in the division right now. That’s not because there’s not any talented fighters in the division, because there certainly quite a few of them. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Cotto a Shot Fighter? – Boxing

cotto4534248By Dave Lahr: Although Miguel Cotto is still winning his fights, he didn’t exactly impress in his last fight against Joshua Clottey in June. There are people who feel that Cotto hasn’t been the same since being beaten by Antonio Margarito last year. To be sure, Cotto didn’t look like his old self in defeating Clottey by a 12 round split decision win. Cotto fought as if he was unsure of himself after getting cut by Clottey.

title HBO Mayweather-Marquez 24/7, episode 1 = Very Boring

mayweather453324By Manuel Perez: I don’t know what the producers of the HBO Mayweather-Marquez 24/7 series were thinking when they put together the first episode, but they need to do some planning to try to liven things up. The reality show was flat out boring and painful to watch. I mean, it wasn’t nearly as boring at watching the Hatton-Pacquiao 24/7 episodes, because that was all time bad television as far as I’m concerned. But last Saturday night’s Mayweather-Marquez 24/7 was approaching the Hatton-Pacquiao series in the boredom department. Read the rest of this entry »

title Hatton Has No Shortage of Opponents for Comeback Bout

By William Mackay: When Ricky Hatton does finally decide to make his comeback there’s no shortage of potential opponents that Hatton can fight. The bad part is that few of them are hugely popular fighters outside of their home cities. Juan Diaz, the former lightweight champion, is a case in point. He’s hugely popular in Texas, but much less so around the rest of the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »
