title Is Haye Lost Without the Klitschko Brothers?

haye563445By Chris Williams: It seems as if British heavyweight David Haye (22-1, 21 KO’s) may have lost his golden goose when he backed out of a June 20th fight with IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko because of back spasms. A chain set of reactions have since occurred with Klitschko first replacing Haye as an opponent with Ruslan Chagaev, then telling Haye to “get in line” behind the other top contenders vying for a bout with Wladimir and then finally the collapse of Setanta Sports, who were going to be paying Haye for a fight with Klitschko.

title Boxing: The British Scene

fury53256By Neil Jones: I feel that people have perhaps lost sight of the bigger picture, and are basing there articles or opinions on little other than personal grudges. It’s maybe forgotten that we are boxing fans, who first and foremost want to be entertain by watching the best fighters in the best fights regardless of nationality. First and foremost I am a boxing fan. By that extension, I like to feel that I am non biased and objective. By the same standard, it means that I wanted Haye to whip Wladamir, Ricky to knock out Manny and Amir to batter Kotelnik, but we all know how that has turned out. Read the rest of this entry »

title What Does Pacquiao Have To Do To Silence His Critics? Part 2

pac5446By Joel Nepomuceno: As I stated in my article before this one, one of the key criticisms of Manny Pacquiao is that he hasn’t fought anyone in their prime, or that his opponents have all been shot or weight drained. Critics continue to argue that Pacquaio is only great because he’s only fought weight drained fighters. They always seem to ask, “why is he insisting on demanding catch weights?” Read the rest of this entry »

title Hatton Needs to be the Sacrificial Lamb for Witter

By Scott Gilfoid: Ricky Hatton has been avoiding light welterweight Junior Witter (37-2, 22 KO’s) for as long as I can remember, and has a number of reasons for not fighting him most of it having to deal with Witter calling him out all the time. I don’t know about you, but I never realized that was such a crime that would get Hatton upset enough not to fight Witter. Read the rest of this entry »
