title Khan: Mayweather is running scared of me because of my size, speed and power

khan4045 (Amir Khan seen here after his very, very tough fight against Marcos Maidana in 2010) By Scott Gilfoid: Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) says WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26 KOs) is scared of him because of his speed, size and punching power.

Khan also thinks Mayweather is a liar because he chose not to fight him after he won a poll conducted on his Mayweather Promotions website last year. The poll was one where boxing fans voted to pick the guy they felt Mayweather should fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Roman Gonzalez hasn’t been tested by a puncher like myself, says Viloria

viloria5By Chris Williams: Former two division world champion Brian Viloria (36-4, 22 KOs) says he’s really looking forward to his title shot against unbeaten WBC flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez (43-0, 37 KOs) in their fight on HBO pay-per-view on October 17th on the undercard of the Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemieux fight card from Madison Square Garden in New York.

Viloria, 34, thinks that the 28-year-old Roman Gonzalez has never been tested by a puncher like him before during his career, and he can’t wait to get him inside the ring so that he can start bouncing shots off his chin one after another. Read the rest of this entry »

title Deontay Wilder: There’s no way Tarver would hang in there with the Bronzebomber

1-DEONTAY WILDER VICTORY-06132015-5320By Scott Gilfoid: WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (34-0, 33 KOs) saw former light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver (31-6-1, 22 KOs) struggle to a 12 round draw last Friday night in his fight against former IBF cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham (28-7-1, 13 KOs) at the Prudential Center, in Newark, New Jersey, USA.

While Deontay, 6’7”, gave the 46-year-old Tarver credit for being able to hang in there with the fast 204lb Cunningham, Wilder thinks that there’s no way that Tarver would have been able to go the distance with him had he been in there with him rather than Cunningham. Read the rest of this entry »

title Golovkin on the cusp of superstardom

golovkin883By Dan Ambrose: After toiling away for years as a pro, IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) is on the cusp of superstardom if he can win his next two fights against IBF 160lb champion David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs) on October 17th and against the inner of the November 21st fight between WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (40-4, 33 KOs) and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (45-1-1, 32 KOs).

If Golovkin wins those two fights, he’ll be a huge star and will likely be a pay-per-view fight from this point on. However, it’s quite possible that Golovkin won’t get a chance at fighting the winner of the Cotto-Canelo fight, because they may opt not to fight him due to the risk involved.

title Bute stops Di Luisa; Eleider Alvarez defeats Isidro Ranoni Prieto

bute555By Jim Dower: Making his first appearance in 19 months, 35-year-old former IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (32-2, 25 KOs) was victorious on Saturday night in stopping little known 2nd tier fighter Andrea Di Luisa (17-3, 13 KOs) in the 4th round in a scheduled 10 round bout on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC Sports Network from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.

Bute knocked Di Luisa down with a left to the head. After Di Luisa got back to his feet, Bute nailed him with a flurry of shots causing Di Luisa’s corner to throw in the towel. Read the rest of this entry »

title Errol Spence with chance to prove himself against Chris Van Heerden

spenceBy Dan Ambrose: Unbeaten #8 WBA welterweight contender Errol Spence Jr. (17-0, 14 KOs) has a big chance to prove what he can do in his fight next month against #8 IBF Chris Van Heerden (23-1-1, 12 KOs) on September 11th on the Adonis Stevenson vs. Tommy Karpency card on Premier Boxing Champions from the Ricoh Coliseum, in Toronto, Ontario.

Spence, 25, was hoping to get a world title shot against WBC “regular” welterweight champion Keith “One Time” Thurman, but he didn’t have any interest in facing Spence despite the fact that Spence had Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe asking Thurman in his behalf.

title Lucian Bute vs. Andrea Di Luisa tonight on PBC on NBCSN

bute6555By Dan Ambrose: Tonight boxing fans will get a chance to see former IBF 168lb champion Lucian Bute (32-2, 24 KOs) take on Italy’s Andrea Di Luisa (17-2, 6 KOs) in a scheduled 10 round bout on Premier Boxing Champions on NBC Sports Network starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. The fight will be in the light heavyweight division.

It’s going to be interesting to see how well the 35-year-old Bute does in this fight because he’s facing a guy that he should be able to dispatch without too many problems if he brings his A-game. The problem that Bute has had is he’s looked gun-shy since his knockout loss to Carl Froch three years ago in May of 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao says swimming in sea healed his shoulder without rehab

pac746By Chris Williams: It’s not usual for fighters to be able to come back from an injury like the one that Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) suffered last May without having to undergo many months of hard rehab training to try and get the full use of their surgically repaired shoulder back to them. This is why it seems to strange that Pacquiao is saying that his surgically repaired right rotator cuff has been healed without him even undergoing rehab.

Pacquiao says he just swam in the ocean and the salt water healed his torn rotator cuff. It sounds like a miracle. Read the rest of this entry »

title Glowacki: The U.S market is now open to me

150814_Fights_1912(Photo credit: Ed Diller/DiBella Entertainment) By Dan Ambrose: We may have a star in the making in Poland’s Krzysztof Glowacki (25-0, 16 KOs) scoring an 11th round knockout victory over long-standing WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck (38-3-1, 26 KOs) last Saturday night in their fight on Premier Boxing Champions on Spike TV from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It was a fight of the year candidate with the way both fighters hit the canvas and supplied nonstop action from start to finish.

To say that Glowacki vs. Huck stole the show last night from the main event between Antonio Tarver and Steve “USS” Cunningham is putting it lightly. It was no contest. The Glowacki-Huck fight was in another dimension compared to the old timers fight in the main event between Tarver and Cunningham. Read the rest of this entry »
