title DeGale expects to KO Bute in 6 rounds

degale55By Scott Gilfoid: IBF super middleweight champion James DeGale (21-1, 14 KOs) seems to be bothered by the fact that challenger Lucian Bute (32-2, 25 KOs) is saying that he’s never been beaten before in Quebec during his career. DeGale thinks that the 35-year-old Bute is trying to get confidence by saying he’s never been beaten in Quebec.

The way DeGale sees it, he’ll be knocking Bute out by the 6th round in their fight this Saturday night at the Centre Videotron, in Quebec City, Quebec. Read the rest of this entry »

title Is De La Hoya avoiding Canelo vs. GGG clash?

de la hoya84By Robert “Big Moe” Elmore: This is the beauty about boxing. It’s unpredictable. And sometimes my theories on things are wrong, but I enjoy attempting so here we go. Saul “Canelo” Alvarez win over Miguel Cotto for the WBC middleweight title was big, but it also put Canelo in direct line to face mandatory challenger Gennady Golovkin (GGG, aka Trip).

So far Oscar De La Hoya has been mum on his next move. However, his moves could be decided for him by the WBC if he doesn’t make up his mind. Canelo has 15 days to decide to fight Trip or be stripped of his title. My spidey senses tell me Oscar is trying to maneuver around that mandatory bout. Enter Floyd Mayweather.

title Haye sees Fury losing to Klitschko

haye5666By Scott Gilfoid: David Haye is giving unbeaten Brit Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) next to no chance at beating IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) in their fight this Saturday night at the ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany. One of the main reasons why Haye sees the 27-year-old Fury losing the fight is his lack of experience.

Haye notes that the best guy that Fury has fought Dereck Chisora, who he beat twice. Haye doesn’t think that Chisora is the right kind of preparation for a fight against Klitschko, because he’s not a world level heavyweight. Haye reminds people that he easily knocked Chisora out in the 5th round three years ago in 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

title Danny Garcia battles Robert Guerrero on 1/23 on PBC

garcia564By Dan Ambrose: In a predictable fight, unbeaten #2 WBC, #4 WBA welterweight contender Danny Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) will be matched up against the struggling light punching #6 WBC, #14 WBA Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KOs) in a 12 round bout on January 23rd on Premier Boxing Champions on Fox Deportes next year from the Staples Center in Los Angles, California.

A lot of boxing fans predicted this fight a long time ago, because both guys are with Al Haymon, and both of them are fighting in a division where they don’t really match-up well against the other fighters. It’s still a good watchable fight for fans. It’s just not quite as good a match-up as it could be if Garcia were put in with someone with punching power to hurt him. Read the rest of this entry »

title David Haye faces Mark De Mori on 1/16

1-Haye v De Mori 2

By Scott Gilfoid: As of Tuesday, David Haye (26-2, 24 KOs) has revealed that he’ll be fighting in the next couple of months against #10 WBA heavyweight contender Mark De Mori (30-1-2, 26 KOs) in a comeback fight on 1/16 at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

For a rust ridding fight, this is a decent contest for Haye, because he’s facing a top 10 contender. A lot of heavyweights that have been out of the ring for as long as the 35-year-old Haye has wouldn’t have agreed to face a guy ranked in the top 10 like De Mori, even though he’s totally untested as a contender.

title Klitschko vs. Fury: Tyson Fury Brings the “X-Factor” Against Klitschko

By Michael Montero – This Saturday in Dusseldorf, Germany, undisputed heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko defends his crown for the nineteenth straight time against undefeated British giant Tyson Fury. For Klitschko, this will mark the third bout in a three-fight deal he signed with American premium cable network HBO last year. Fury represents the third straight undefeated contender the champion has faced; in fact six of his last seven opponents unblemished records. But Fury will present a whole new challenge for the nearly forty year old Ukrainian this Saturday night, let’s take a look. Read the rest of this entry »

title Lewis: Wladimir needs to win WBC title then retire

wladimir0843By Scott Gilfoid: Britain’s Lennox Lewis believes that IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) needs to beat Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) this Saturday night by bombing out the unbeaten 6’9″ fighter with a big right hand, and then go after the WBC title, which is currently held by Deontay Wilder (35-0, 34 KOs).

Lewis says Wladimir needs to try and win the WBC belt and then retire from the sport before age and injuries catches up to him. To be sure, Wladimir has recently started showing his age in his last two fights against Bryant Jennings and Kubrat Pulev. Read the rest of this entry »

title Spence-Barrera & Charlo-Campfort this Saturday on PBC

spenceBy Dan Ambrose: Unbeaten #10 WBA, #10 WBC, #13 WBO welterweight contender Errol Spence Jr. (18-0, 15 KOs) will be fighting this Saturday night against Alejandro Barrera (26-2, 17 KOs) on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC from The Bomb Factory, in Dallas, Texas.

It’s a fight that isn’t a great match-up for the 25-year-old Spence, but at least it’s a fight that will keep him busy and marching forward with his pro career. Spence wants the bigger fights, but right now he doesn’t have the ranking and the popularity to force those important fights.

Spence recently beat Chris Van Heerden, Phil Lo Greco and Samuel Vargas by knockouts. Those are decent level opposition, but not the kind of opponents that will get Spence the bigger fights that he wants. Read the rest of this entry »

title Tyson Fury’s trainer says they’ve got a good plan to beat Klitschko

By Scott Gilfoid: Trainer Peter Fury believes that the plan that he’s got for his fighter Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) will be perfect for him to defeat IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) this Saturday night at the ESPRIT Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Peter is pretty confident that the plan will work to defeat Klitschko. It’s unclear what that plan could be though, because the fighting style that have derailed Wladimir in the past is heavy pressure and hard punches from sluggers. Fury isn’t a pressure fighter though, and he’s not a hard puncher. Read the rest of this entry »
