Champion John Murray (Manchester, England) and challenger Lee McAllister (Aberdeen, Scotland) squared off on Saturday night, sporting records of 25-0 and 27-1 respectively. This topped ITV’s first ‘Big Fight Live’ of 2009 and may have had more publicity if it wasn’t for another British lightweight, Amir Khan. An intriguing battle saw Murray retain his title and unbeaten record, despite a slightly flawed display. Read the rest of this entry »

title Murray Stops McAllister

murray83432By Daniel Cann: In front of a sell-out capacity crowd at the Robin Park Centre, Wigan, champion John Murray (25-0-13 ko’s) and challenger Lee McAllister (27-1-5 ko’s) put on a fine display that was worthy of the support they both enjoyed. Fans had travelled from Manchester and Aberdeen to be there and the boxers made the fans trip worthwhile.

The end came suddenly for the 26-year-old Miranda when he walked into a big left hand in the 5th, flattening him. Miranda got to his feet but then fell back against the ropes where he hung there with both arms outstretched on the ropes like a big spider.

title Berto vs. Collazo on Saturday

berto3555By Dave Lahr: WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (23-0, 19 KOs) may not know it or not but he has a real test in front of him Saturday with challenger Luis Collazo (29-3, 14 KOs). This is an opponent that speed alone won’t be the answer for, so hopefully Berto has some other tools to fall back on in case Collazo starts giving him problems. Berto’s experience up until now has been nothing short of pitiful for a champion, having had hardly any notable fighters that he’s had to prove himself against. Read the rest of this entry »

title Mosley Better Be Ready To Run From Margarito All Night Long

margo34235By Manuel Perez: Shane Mosley (45-5, 38 KOs) has been saying that he doesn’t plan on running from WBA welterweight champion Antonio Margarito (37-5, 27 KOs) in their title bout on January 24th at the Staples Center, in Los Angeles, California. For Mosley’s sake, I hope he’s joshing about this, because Shane is going to take a real pounding if he’s serious about this. Having confidence in oneself is nice thing to have but there’s also reality, and the reality is, if Mosley stands and tries to fight it out with Margarito, Shane is going to be the equivalent of bicyclist being run over by a speeding truck.
