title Saunders slams Golovkin and Khurtsidze

By Scott Gilfoid: WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (24-0, 12 KOs) ripped into middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and challenger Avandil Khurtsidze (33-2-2, 22 KOs) at a press conference to hype his fight on July 8 at the Georgian fighter at the Copper Box Arena in London, England. Saunders said that Golovkin didn’t look his best against his last opponent Danny Jacobs in their fight last March because he was drug tested 5 times, and that it was a “fair playing field” for the fight. Saunders said he could be wrong in his opinion on Golovkin. Saunders also questioned whether his opponent Khurtsidze has ever taken drugs before in the past. Read the rest of this entry »

title Canelo vs. Golovkin possible for Dodgers Stadium

By Jeff Aranow: Saul Canelo Alvarez’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya is considering an offer from Magic Johnson to stage the Canelo vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin fight on September 16 at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, California, according to Lance Pugmire. The stadium seats 60,000 boxing fans. De La Hoya is saying that the Dodgers Stadium offer from Magic Johnson is the leading offer he’s received. The one question is about the state taxes that would be taken out of Canelo and Golovkin’s purses for the fight. California has state income tax. Nevada and Texas don’t have a state tax, and neither does Washington state. Read the rest of this entry »

By Ian Aldous: On Saturday June 3rd, Frank Buglioni (19-2-1) defends his British light-heavyweight championship against Ricky Summers (13-0), at the O2 Arena, live on Sky Sports. That belt was acquired in dramatic fashion last December on enemy territory in Manchester against Hosea Burton, and now he returns home to London to defend the title. It will serve as chief support to the heavyweight contest between Dillian Whyte and Mariusz Wach. Last week, following some sparring with George Groves, Frank took some time to talk with me over the phone about the fight and his career to date. Read the rest of this entry »



title Brook vs. Spence = 2 weeks away

By Scott Gilfoid: In less than 2 weeks from now, IBF welterweight champion Kell “Special K” Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) will be putting his IBF strap on the line against his mandatory challenger Errol “The Truth” Spence Jr. (21-0, 18 KOs) in a very big fight on May 27 at Bramall Lane in Sheffield, England. On May 27, we’re going to find out quickly if there’s any residual damage to Brook’s surgically repaired right eye from his last fight against Gennady Golovkin. If the titanium plate that was inserted into Brook’s right eye socket isn’t as strong as he’s been blathering about, we could see that eye swell up almost immediately when Spence nails on that spot.
