title Cotto To Try and Rebuild His Career Against Jennings in February

By Chris Williams: Although former World Boxing Association welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (32-1, 26 KOs) might much prefer to go right into a title fight against WBO champion Paul Williams, unfortunately Cotto will have to take a brief detour along the way with a WBO title eliminator match against #2 ranked Michael Jennings (34-1, 16 KOs) on February 14th in New York.

title Will Calzaghe Fight Another Old Timer?

By Michael Lieberman: With two victories in a row over the old timers of the middleweight division, Joe Calzaghe (46-0, 32 KOs) is debating whether to continue on with his boxing career or not. Whether he does or doesn’t, I sure hope he chooses someone below 39 for his next fight because it’s hardly interesting to see him fight another fighter on or near his 4th decade on this planet.

title Forget About a Lewis Comeback

By Jim Dower: If it isn’t already obvious by now to all boxing fans, let me be the one to tell you, Lennox Lewis won’t be making a comeback to the sport now or probably ever and the fans that are hoping for him to come back really need to give it a much needed rest. For some reason, the topic of Lewis making a comeback pops up every few months, if nothing else because of the dull state of the heavyweight division. Read the rest of this entry »
