title Easter Jr. vs. Cruz brings in huge ratings on Bounce TV

By Jim Dower: Premier Boxing Champions on Bounce TV brought in over 1.5 million viewers to see IBF World lightweight champion Robert Easter Jr. (19-0, 14 KOs) successfully defend his IBF title in beating Luis Cruz (22-5-1, 16 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision from the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio.

The ratings for the fight were through the roof, and quite unexpected to some, as Easter Jr. is not a huge star as of yet with the casual boxing fans in the U.S. Easter Jr. fought like a star with him knocking down Cruz three times in fight in winning an easy 12 round decision.
PBC is smart to have their top fighters like the 26-year-old Easter Jr. have his fights televised on free television like Bounce TV. Read the rest of this entry »

title Hearn: Spence fight is 5 times tougher for Brook than Khan

By Scott Gilfoid: Errol Spence Jr. is a fight that is five times tougher for IBF 147lb champion Kell Brook than a fight against Amir Khan, says Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn. That’s the fight that Hearn and Brook REALLY wanted.

They were hoping that they could get the recently knocked out Khan to fight. Khan wisely turned the Brook fight down, as he was coming off of a bad knockout loss to Saul “Canelo” Alvarez in 2016, and hand surgery as well. Read the rest of this entry »

title Brook vs. Spence is a toss-up fight says Malignaggi

By Scott Gilfoid: As far as Paulie Malignaggi is concerned, the Kell Brook vs. Errol Spence Jr. fight is a toss-up match where either guy can win. Brook and Spence are expected to fight on May 27 rather than May 20, and it’s going to be taking place in Sheffield, England. Brook will have the home advantage, as Sheffield is where he lives.

Malignaggi feels that Brook might have problems with cutting weight to get down to the 147lb limit for the fight. Malignaggi thinks that Spence could win the fight because of Brook having to cut weight to get to the 147lb limit. However, Malignaggi also gives Brook a good chance of beating Spence because he doesn’t like the way Spence has reacted in the past when he takes shots. Read the rest of this entry »

title Horn isn’t sure if Pacquiao is the one sending Tweets from his account

By Chris Williams: Unbeaten welterweight contender Jeff Horn (16-0-1, 11 KOs) doesn’t understand why WBO 147lb champion Manny Pacquiao has suddenly started sending Tweets from his Twitter account asking boxing fans to pick his next opponent from a list of four fighters. Horn thinks that it might not be Pacquiao who is in charge of his Twitter account, even though it’s a verified account.

For Pacquiao not to be the one sending out the tweets from a verified account, it would mean that it had to be hacked, because it’s a legitimate account. Of course, if Pacquiao wasn’t the one sending the Tweets, he would have spoken up by now to reassure the 28-year-old Horn that it’s not him sending the Tweets. Read the rest of this entry »
