title Hatton Will Lose To Pacquiao

hatton464635By Scott Gilfoid: The latest in the war of words is that Ricky Hatton’s assistant trainer Lee Beard is predicting a 6th round stoppage of Manny Pacquiao. Yeah, right. That isn’t going to happen, except maybe in Hatton’s dreams or something. Though I wouldn’t mind seeing Pacquiao get stretched, because he’s pretty overrated as far as I can tell. A loss to Hatton would be a good thing for him. It’s too bad Hatton doesn’t have the ability to make that happen. Read the rest of this entry »

Calling it a bad night, never could get off with his punches and was beaten soundly by a fighter that Pavlik, with his youth and power, should have been able to beat if he was the real deal. Instead, Pavlik took a beating and ended up looking one dimensional and limited as a fighter. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Angulo Too Slow To Be Champion?

angulo22211By David Lahr: Light middleweight Alfredo Angulo (15-0, 12 KOs) opened some eyes on Saturday night in the process of taking out veteran Cosme Rivera in the 5th at the BankAtlantic Center, in Sunrise, Florida. Angulo showed crushing power in hurting Rivera on a number of occasions in rounds three and five, eventually battering him until the fight was stopped in the 5th. The referee Telis Assimenios waited way too long before stepping in and stopping the fight, letting poor Rivera get hit with far too many shots if you ask me. Read the rest of this entry »



title Barrera vs. Khan: What Are Amir’s Options If He Loses?

khan63562By Chris Williams: You take a good fighter like Amir Khan (19-1, 15 KOs), and then you put him in with a knockout artist early in his career with the obvious conclusion being Amir being flattened in the 1st. Next, his trainer is sacked and replaced by a well known one with experience in training offensive fighters. Khan is then given the formidable task of having to face legendary fighter Marco Antonio Barrera with possibly the WBO lightweight title on the line. Read the rest of this entry »
