title Why Can’t Calzaghe Understand Froch’s Bitterness About Him?

froch3245225By Michael Lieberman: It seems as if former World Boxing Organization super middleweight champion Joe Calzaghe (46-0, 32 KOs) is a bit out of touch as to why World Boxing Council super middleweight champion Carl Froch (24-0, 19 KOs) has some lingering bad feelings towards him. Why wouldn’t Froch? After all, Calzaghe chose to bypass him for the past three years of his career even though it was clear that Froch was one of the best fighters in all of boxing. There was no doubt whatsoever that Froch was the 2nd best fighter in the UK, in terms of super middleweights. Read the rest of this entry »



title Wladimir vs. Haye Preview

haye45344By Tim Neilson: It’s been awhile since I’ve last wrote, but with the David Haye signing on for a fight with Wladimir Klitschko, I thought there was no better time than this time say my thing about this. First of all, I’m shocked that Haye actually got through the entire negotiations process without sabotaging it in some way. I half suspected that Haye would do something to foul the thing up in one way or another just to avoid the prospect of getting beaten from one side of the ring to another by Wladimir, but the money was probably too good for him to resist.

title De La Hoya Should Just Retire Already

dela11223312By Scott Gilfoid: I for one am really hoping that Oscar De La Hoya (39-6, 30 KOs) finally shuts the door on his career and announces his retirement from boxing at his scheduled press conference on April 14th. It’s maddening to see him getting all these fights – and losing them all pretty much – and yet getting even more of them on top of that. I wouldn’t mind it so much if his fights were shown on free television like ESPN, but to have to pay to see him take a beating time after time is pointless and a waste of time.

title Hatton-Pacquiao: Manny Won’t Be Able To Take The Body Shots From Ricky

hatton632226By Manuel Perez: As I’ve watched Manny Pacquiao’s two fights with Juan Manuel Marquez, I’ve found out that the trick to beating Pacquiao is to attack him to the body because he doesn’t seem to like getting hit in the midsection. Ricky Hatton is probably the worst opponent imaginable for Pacquiao and on May 2nd, at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada, we’ll see what happens when Pacquiao is faced with a pure body puncher like Hatton.

title Haye Gets His Big Money Fight Against Wladimir

wladimir44567By Scott Gilfoid: David Haye (22-1, 21 KOs) must be feeling like he struck the jackpot right about now after signing for a June 20th bout against WBO/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (52-3, 46 KOs), the best fighter in the heavyweight division. Just by getting into the fight, Haye will make out like a fat rat win or lose, and will make millions of dollars no matter what happens. I don’t think Haye should even be in the fight, because he’s done nothing to deserve to fight against the top fighter in boxing. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin vs. Simms on April 25th

gennedy32346By Erik Schmidt: On April 25th, we may be seeing the next middleweight champion world champion with undefeated middleweight contender Gennady Golovkin (15-0, 12 KOs) going up against unbeaten Tarvis Simms (24-0-1, 11 KOs) in a 10-round bout at the König Palast, Krefeld, in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. Golovkin, 26, the 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist from Kazakhstan, has quickly moved up the pro ranks since turning professional in 2006. Read the rest of this entry »

title Is Haye Risking His Boxing Career Against Wladimir?

haye56346600By Chris Williams: It’s amusing to me seeing David Haye risk pretty much his entire boxing career in facing Wladimir Klitschko on June 20th in Germany. Haye seems ready to risk everything in hopes of beating Wladimir and taking Wladimir’s two titles home to England. The costs of losing to Wladimir are extreme, though, so I hope Haye is prepared for that experience. Read the rest of this entry »

bradley43445By Jim Dower: Former World Boxing Council light welterweight champion Junior Witter (37-2-2, 22 KOs) is picking Kendall Holt to defeat Timothy Bradley (23-0, 11 KOs) in the WBC/WBO unification bout this Saturday night at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Canada. Witter, 35, knows Bradley first hand, having lost his WBC title to him by a close 12-round split decision a year ago in May 2008. Read the rest of this entry »

shumenov452By Dave Lahr: Undefeated light heavyweight prospect Beibut Shumenov (7-0, 5 KOs) takes a big step up in competition on May 9th against former International Boxing Federation (IBF) super middleweight champion Colombian Alejandro Berrio (28-5, 27 KOs) in a 12-round bout for the vacant International Boxing Association light heavyweight title at the Stadium Khadjimukan, in Chimkent, Kazakhstan.
