title Khan doesn’t deserve to fight Mayweather or Pacquiao, says Kell Brook

khan1010By Scott Gilfoid: It’s no secret that former IBF/WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan (30-3, 19 KOs) is hoping he can get a big money fight in the near future against Floyd Mayweather Jr and/or Manny Pacquiao after Khan gets done facing Chris Algieri in their proposed fight on May 30th. IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook doesn’t think that Khan deserves a big payday fight against Mayweather and Pacquiao.

Brook thinks that Khan still needs to prove himself against him before he can get in line for Mayweather and Pacquiao. Read the rest of this entry »

title Floyd Sr: Pacquiao might take a knee and say “I don’t want no more” against Mayweather
By Chris Williams: While a lot of boxing fans are still unsure precisely how the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight will play out, Mayweather’s trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. sees Pacquiao as potentially quitting on his knees on May 2nd when the going gets tough for him.

Floyd Sr. thinks Pacquiao will go into the retreat mode when he takes some big shots, and then possibly take a knee to escape the punishment when it gets too bad. Read the rest of this entry »

title Fortune: Only Freddie Roach Knows how to Beat Mayweather

roach445By Raj Parmar: Manny Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach Justin Fortune believes trainer Freddie Roach is going to be the difference maker on May 2 when Manny steps into the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr. After going through a few weeks in training camp alongside both Roach and Pacquiao, Justin is convinced that Manny is certain to win the fight if he listens to Freddie’s instructions.

“It’s only Freddie who knows how to fight Mayweather and win,” Fortune said to Philboxing, “So, Manny should listen to the letter all the instructions of his chief trainer, not only during training period but, most importantly, given at the corner. It’s actually all a matter of listening and execution of what the instructions are.” Read the rest of this entry »

title Quillin vs. Lee fight a non-title bout after Peter fails to make weight

By Scott Gilfoid: Saturday night’s Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) card on NBC will now involve two non-title fights at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Andy Lee (34-2, 24 KOs) vs. Peter Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs) fight was supposed to have Lee’s WBO middleweight title at stake, but Quillin came in over the weight limit at 161.4 pounds.

title Brook V Gavin May 30th: Hearn and Brook let Khan off the hook

SHEFFIELD-BROOK-DANN14By B.G.B: Kell Brook will be making a quick return to the ring to defend his IBF welterweight strap against the world famous Frankie Gavin. Not the announcement boxing purists were hoping for I’m sure. What makes this announcement so underwhelming is the heavy criticism rival Amir Khan has received after his own underwhelming announcement that he’ll be fighting Chris Algieri.

Kell Brook was left scratching his head at Khan’s decision and understandable so. Khan turned down a career high pay day in front of what would have likely been a record British crowd for a word title in the best division in boxing. In what world could that possibly be the right decision? Read the rest of this entry »

title Lebedev defeats Kalenga; Chakhkiev, Kudryashov, Troyanovsky Undercard Knockout Festival In Russia!

By Jim Dower: In an exciting fight, WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (26-2, 20 KOs) got up off the deck to go on and defeat WBA interim cruiserweight champ Youri Kalenga (21-1, 14 KOs) by a hard fought 12 round unanimous decision on Friday night at the Luzhniki Arena in Moscow, Russia.< The final judges’ scores were 115-112, 115-112 and 116-111. Kalenga, 27, knocked the 35-year-old Lebedev down with a left to the head in the 4th round. Three rounds later, Lebedev returned the favor in dropping Kalenga with a left to the head late in the round. Lebedev had an opportunity to finish the badly hurt Kalenga off in that round, but he failed to go after him to try and stop him. Kalenga was staggering after he got back to his feet and looked unsteady on his feet each time Lebedev hit him in the remaining seconds of the round. Read the rest of this entry »

title Anthony Joshua to fight on May 9th at Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England

joshua22By Scott Gilfoid: #7 WBC heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (11-0, 11 KOs) will now be fighting on May 9th against an opponent still to be determined at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England. Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport opted to put the 25-year-old Joshua to the card in order to beef it up after he pulled #5 IBF welterweight contender Frankie Gavin off the card due to him now facing IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook on May 30th.

Joshua, a 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist, doesn’t have an opponent for the Birmingham card. Joshua will also be fighting on May 30th on the Brook-Gavin card against 35-year-old American journeyman Kevin Johnson at the O2 Arena in London, UK. Read the rest of this entry »

title Weights: Quillin over the limit for Lee fight, Garcia and Peterson make weight

By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs) came in over the weight limit on Friday in his weigh-in for his title shot against WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee (34-2, 24 KOs) for their fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

title Kell Brook faces Frankie Gavin on May 30th on Sky Box Office in London, UK

gavin(Frankie Gavin seen here in this photo not looking too good against Leonard Bundu) By Scott Gilfoid: As expected, IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) will be defending his IBF strap for the second time next month against #5 IBF Frankie Gavin (22-1, 13 KOs) on May 30th on Sky Box Office at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

It’s a no-brainer move by Brook and his promoter Eddie Hearn from the Matchroom Sport stable because the 29-year-old southpaw Gavin is one of Hearn’s Matchroom stable fighters, and it’s a nice little in house stay busy fight. But unless Hearn does something with Gavin, I think he’ll wind up not being useful to him if he keeps losing. Read the rest of this entry »
