title Jacobs has attributes Golovkin hasn’t seen says Hunter

By Allan Fox: WBA ‘regular’ middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs is using the gym of Andre Ward’s trainer Virgil Hunter in Hayward, California to get ready for his fight on March 18 against IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) on HBO pay-per-view.

Hunter feels that Golovkin has never been in the ring with anyone at the pro level with the talent of the 29-year-old Jacobs, and he feels that anything can happen in this fight. Hunter notes that on paper, Jacobs is the underdog to Triple G, but he still believes that he has a chance of beating the Kazahstan fighter when the two battle it out at Madison Square Garden in New York next month.

title Chavez Jr. could KO Canelo says Cuadras

By Dan Ambrose: Former WBC super flyweight champion Carlos Cuadras (35-1, 27 KOs) is giving Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (50-2-1, 32 KOs) the edge over Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48-1-1, 34 KOs) in their fight three months from now on May 6. Cuadras says that Chavez Jr. is the bigger fighter with more power and with a good chin. He sees that as being a problem for Canelo.

More and more people are starting to select Chavez Jr. as the one who will come out victorious in the fight against the 26-year-old Canelo. It’s not that they don’t see the Golden Boy Promotions star as a good fighter. Read the rest of this entry »



title Broner interested in Pacquiao or Garcia-Thurman winner

By Jim Dower: Adrien Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) says he’s done fishing after beating Adrian Granados (18-5-2, 12 KOs) by a 10 round split decision last Saturday night, and he’s now open to fighting Manny Pacquiao or the winner of the Danny Garcia vs. Keith Thurman fight. Broner says that he’s capable of competing with the best fighters in the 147 lb. division, although he says he broke his left hand in beating Granados at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. If the hand is broken, it’s going to take time for Broner to heal and come back from the injury.

It was thought that Broner, 27, would try and get back down to the 140 lb. division for his next fight, because he did not shine in defeating Granados. But it appears that Broner plans on fighting at welterweight in his next fight if he can get a fight against one of the top fighters. Read the rest of this entry »



title Brook vs. Spence: Quillin and Porter chime in

By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin sees Kell Brook (36-1, 25 KOs) having it tough going against Errol Spence Jr. (21-0, 18 KOs) in his next fight on May 20. Quillin says that Brook has a lot on his plate due to him having lost his last fight against middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, and now having to face one of the best prospects in boxing in Spence. It’s not good timing at all for Brook to have to face a fighter like the 26-year-old Spence right after the Golovkin fight.

Former IBF 147lb champion Shawn Porter also believes that Spence can beat Brook. Porter is well familiar with both fighters, and he thinks that Spence will emerge as the winner in the fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Khan interested in Lamont Peterson fight

By Scott Gilfoid: Amir Khan says that he likes the idea of facing newly crowned WBA World welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (35-3-1, 17 KOs) after his 12 round unanimous decision win over WBA 147lb champion David Avanesyan (22-2-1, 11 KOs) last Saturday night. Peterson beat Khan by a 12 round split decision victory on December 10, 2011. It was a controversial win for Peterson, as Khan twice had points deducted in the fight for him pushing off in rounds 7 and 12.

“Peterson beat Avanesyan love that fight at 147lbs #WBA title,” said Khan via his Twitter. “Fights “I’m confident that can happen in 2017. Garcia vs. Thurman winner. Avanseyan vs. Peterson winner. Miguel Cotto or Kel brook #Big Year.” Read the rest of this entry »



title Broner is too small for 147 says Granados

By Jeff Aranow: Light welterweight contender Adrian Granados (18-5-2, 12 KOs) was unimpressed with what he saw from Adrien Broner (33-2, 24 KOs) in their fight last Saturday night at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The fight took place in the welterweight division at the weight of 147 lbs. Broner won the match by a 10 round split decision, but it could have gone either way. Granados said repeatedly after the fight that he felt that he won, and a lot of boxing fans agree with him. Read the rest of this entry »



title Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs 30-day weights

By Dan Ambrose: IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs) weighed in at 165.1 pounds on Saturday for the World Boxing Council’s mandated 30-day weigh-in for his March 18 fight against Daniel Jacobs (32-1, 29 KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York. Jacobs weighed in almost 10 pounds heavier at 174.8 lbs. The WBC’s limit for the check weight was 176 lbs.

Golovkin usually rehydrates to around 170 lbs. on the night of his fights. I can’t see him deviating from this practice. Read the rest of this entry »
