title Abraham-Taylor: Does Jermain Win This?

By Jim Dower: I’m still wondering why former WBC/WBO middleweight champion Jermain Taylor (28-3-1, 17 KO’s) was invited to Showtime’s Super Six tournament instead of fighters like Allan Green and Sakio Bika. It seems as if Taylor is partially being rewarded by his popularity and from things that he did as a fighter in the past rather than in recent times. It could be that Taylor is being given a second chance. Read the rest of this entry »



title Cotto vs. Pacquiao: Manny Won’t Be Able to Take the Heat

pacquiao4532445By Manuel Perez: WBO welterweight champion Miguel Cotto (34-1, 27 KO’s) has a big surprise for Manny Pacquiao come November 14th. While almost everyone is underestimating Cotto and seeing Pacquiao as the winner of this fight, I think this is going to be an easy fight for Cotto. He’s going to put Pacquiao in his place by knocking him out and sending Pacquiao back to the lightweight division where he belongs. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mosley to fight on December 5th against either Clottey or Berto – News

By Jason Kim: After wasting time for months hopelessly pursuing a bout against Manny Pacquiao, Shane Mosley is close to finally having an opponent to fight. According to Dan Rafael, Mosley will be fighting on December 5th against either Joshua Clottey or Andre Berto. Having to settle for these two fighters must be a bitter pill for the 37-year-old Mosley to have swallow, because neither Berto or Clottey will bring in the kind of money that a fight against Pacquiao would.

title Will Khan Fight Salita Next?

khan5645654By Scott Gilfoid: With all this talk about WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (21-1, 15 KO’s) fighting Ricky Hatton or Timothy Bradley, I never for a second believed that it would happen. As it turns out, I’m probably right about my predictions, because the latest boxing news floating around the net is that Khan, 22, will likely face his number #1 mandatory challenger, Ukrainian Dimitry Salita (30-0-1, 16 KO’s) instead of a much more lucrative bout against Hatton.

title Roach: “Cotto is Going to Be the Toughest Fight”

roach452335By Manuel Perez: In an about face, Freddie Roach, Manny Pacquiao’s trainer, is now talking Miguel Cotto up instead of tearing him down, saying to Nick Giongco of Fight News, “Cotto is going to be the toughest fight and anyone that says it’s going be easy is an idiot.” Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Hatton Shot or Is He Just Not That Good

hatton4524356By Scott Gilfoid: In the matter of months, Ricky Hatton has gone from being considered as the best fighter in the light welterweight division to a fighter that is considered by many to be shot or at the very least overrated. What gets me is that boxing fans are ready to throw out a label like “shot” based on two defeats – Hatton’s losses to Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Read the rest of this entry »



title News – DeGale to Spar with Mayweather Jr.

By Scott Gilfoid: 2008 British Olympic Gold Medalist James DeGale (3-0, 2 KO’s) is reportedly excited about being able to spar with Floyd Mayweather Jr. DeGale will be sparring with Mayweather in Las Vegas as Floyd prepares for his September 19th fight against Juan Manuel Marquez. First of all, I think Mayweather is making a huge mistake of having DeGale as one of his sparring partner. Read the rest of this entry »

By Eric Thomas: Light middleweight contender Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (39-0-1, 29 KO’s) will be fighting the tough Jason LeHoullier (21-1-1, 8 KO’s) in a 10-round bout on September 12th, at the El Palenque de la Feria, in Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico. This will be a slight step up for Chavez Jr., 23, from the B level fighters that he’s been fighting as of late. Read the rest of this entry »



title De La Hoya: “Marquez will beat Mayweather”

marquez42313By Dave Lahr: In Oscar De La Hoya’s weekly blog, he’s predicting that Juan Manuel Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KO’s) will beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KO’s), giving Floyd his first loss of his career in doing so. De La Hoya feels that the two years that Mayweather has been out of the ring, along with Floyd’s rib injury will lead to Marquez, 36, pulling off the upset at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

title Cloud-Woods: Look for Clinton to take a Beating

By Scott Gilfoid: I really hate to see a fighter that is at the end of their rope. That I’m afraid is where former IBF light heavyweight champion Clinton Woods (*42-4-1, 24 KO’s) is right now as he prepares to face one of the most lethal punchers in the light heavyweight division in unbeaten Tavoris Cloud (19-0, 18 KO’s) on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, in Hollywood, Florida.
