title Dawson-Johnson: Will Glen Have Better Luck This Time?

By Jim Dower: For many people who saw the Glen Johnson vs. Chad Dawson fight last year in April, they felt that the 40-year-old Johnson had done enough to win the 12-round decision over Dawson. It was a fight in which both Dawson and Johnson went toe-to-toe through much of the fight with Dawson landing the faster shots and nice combinations, but Johnson taking advantage of Dawson’s frequent lulls in activity by outworking Dawson during these dry spells.

title Mayweather-Marquez: Will Floyd Be His Usual Boring Self?

By Dave Lahr: On September 19th, I’m wondering which Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KO’s) will show up – sharp shooting welterweight or the painfully boring safety first runner. If history is any guide, we’ll be seeing Mayweather at his worse as he bores the pay-per-view audience to tears by avoiding any meaningful exchanges with Juan Manuel Marquez (50-4, 37 KO’s) and looks to win by the fight with a hunt and peck offensive style.

title Campaign to get Boxing back on British Television

froch35By Liam Santiago: Like most British boxing fans, I have been totally disgraced to find one bout screened on British television over the last month or two. With Setanta going bust and ITV refusing to screen any more boxing ; we are in a tricky situation. What we do see usually is not free. However, a campaign has been started and a facebook group has been created to give support. Read the rest of this entry »



title Donaire Wants to Be Undisputed Champion: How About Giving Concepcion a Rematch First?

donaire4233By Manuel Perez: Nonito Donaire (22-1, 14 KO’s) is planning on moving up in weight after defeating Rafael Concepcion (13-4-1, 8 KO’s) on August 15th by a 12-round decision to capture the interim WBA World super flyweight title, according to the GMA News. Well, I wouldn’t advise Donaire to even consider moving up in weight after seeing how badly Donaire looked against Concepcion. Read the rest of this entry »



title Jeff Lacy: Should He Retire?

lacy53575540By Steven Wain: Everyone saw last week when Lacy was destroyed by ring legend Roy Jones JR proving once again that Lacy can’t mix it with the big boys. The fight was so one sided, for 10 rounds Lacy just had his ass handed to him and got taught a boxing lesson from a boxing master, the fight was painful to watch and I was relieved when his corner pulled him out.

title Where Does Roy Jones Jr. Go From Here?

jones4349By Adam Fillingham: Ring legend Roy Jones Jr. put on a fanatical performance against a past his best Jeff Lacy last weekend. Jones pulled it out of the bag and for me won every round against the 32 year old. This is all well and good but where does he go from here. A fight with Danny Green is all but signed up for and the pair could go toe to toe on the 21st of November. Green is a good but not great fighter that has fought no one of much calibre in his 8 year career. He also chose to retire instead of defending his WBA light heavyweight belt.

title News – Hatton meets Ali

hatton3423134By Nate Anderson: A slightly chunky looking Ricky Hatton met the great Muhammad Ali earlier today at Hatton’s gym in Manchester, England. There were swarms of fans of both Ali and Hatton that came over to witness the event and get a glimpse of Ali. As soon as the sixty-seven-year-old Ali emerged out of his vehicle, Hatton gave him a brief hug of affection. Ali shook noticeably and looked weak as he walked with the help of his wife at his side.

haye5468By Chris Williams: It looks as if the loud talking British cruiserweight turned heavyweight David Haye (22-1, 21 KO’s) has dodged a bullet after two time World Boxing Association heavyweight champion John Ruiz has reportedly agreed to step aside and let Haye go ahead and fight WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev (50-1, 34 KO’s) on November 7th, in Germany.

urango34242By Steven Wain: Fighting on the same bill as Clinton Woods VS Tavoris Cloud, will be former Ricky Hatton opponent Juan “Iron Twin” Urango (21-2-16 KO’s) who will take on hard hitting Randall “The Knock-Out King” Bailey (39-6-35 KO’s) for the International Boxing Federation light welterweight title.
