By William Mackay: Bernard Hopkins (49-5-1, 32 KOs) has been mentioned as potential opponent for WBC super middleweight champion Carl Froch (25-0, 20 KOs) in September, but I’m hoping that Hopkins doesn’t sell himself short and take this fight because there are bigger and better things out there for the 44-year-old Hopkins starting with WBA heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev (50-1, 34 KOs).

chagaev26578By Sean McDaniel: World Boxing Association ‘champion in recess’ Ruslan Chagaev (25-0-1, 17 KOs) received a golden opportunity this week when David Haye pulled up lame for his June 20th fight with IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, leaving an opening for Chagaev to slide in and take the fight.

title Who Will Haye Fight Next?

By Matt Stein: David Haye must be in the dumps right now after losing out on a title shot against IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko after David injured his back recently in training.

By Manuel Perez: Since it appears that Manny Pacquiao will never fight Shane Mosley for some reason that only Manny and perhaps Freddie Roach know the reason, why isn’t Pacquiao and his promotional team considering welterweight Paul Williams (37-1, 27 KOs) as an opponent for August instead of fighters like Edwin Valero or Miguel Cotto?
