title Andre Dirrell to James DeGale: I’m beating your backside!

dirrell3423 - CopyBy Scott Gilfoid: It seems that James DeGale’s recent comments about him thinking he can stop #2 IBF super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) has woken the American talent up and got him riled a bit. Dirrell is now predicting that he’s going to whip the 29-year-old DeGale’s backside when he gets him inside the ring, whether that be in the UK or America.

Dirrell doesn’t care too much about where the fight takes place. He only knows that he’s going to thrash DeGale badly and take the vacant IBF super middleweight title, which was recently dumped by Britain’s Carl Froch. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao will beat Mayweather Jr: Fight breakdown

floyd11222By Leigh K. Seto: Las Vegas made a news release this week that determined Manny Pacquiao would be a 3 to 1 underdog to Floyd Mayweather Jr. Most experts would agree that this line it warranted. Mayweather has the boxing skills to be considered one of greatest of all times.

Mayweather’s defense could be compared with a defensive specialist like Hall of Fame fighter Pernell Whitaker. However, not matching his defense with his offense like Roy Jones Jr. and Sugar Ray Leonard may be the key to why Pacquiao will be the first to beat him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Arthur Abraham vs. Paul Smith 2: “I believe I can knock him out,” says Smith

smith788By Scott Gilfoid: #4 WBO Paul Smith (35-4, 20 KOs) will be getting a second crack at WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (41-4, 28 KOs) on February 21st at the O2 World Arena, Kreuzberg, in Berlin, Germany.

Smith lost to Abraham five months ago by a fairly lopsided 12 round unanimous decision by the scores of 117-111, 119-109 and 117-111 last September. But because of all the bellyaching Smith and his fans did after him losing, he was able to get a rematch with Abraham. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin vs. Murray: “I have the tools to beat him,” Martin says

murray66By Scott Gilfoid: While many people in the boxing world recognize WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) as being near super human in strength and talent, his opponent for February 21st, Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs), sees him as very human and very beatable.

Murray thinks he’s got what it takes to end Golovkin’s seven-year knockout streak and give him his first loss of his boxing career when the two of them face each other in two half weeks from now on 2/21 at the Salle des Étoiles, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Read the rest of this entry »



title Chavez Jr: Bob Arum can’t stop my fight with Fonfara

chavez65By Dan Ambrose: It’s been 11 months since the last time former WBC 160 pound champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-1-1, 32 KOs) last fought, and it’ll be over a year by the time he faces #4 WBC light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (26-3, 15 KOs) in their catch-weight fight on April 18th, if Chavez Jr’s promoter Bob Arum doesn’t stop the fight from taking place.

Arum has repeatedly said recently that Chavez Jr still has one more fight on his contract with Top Rank, and that if he attempts to fight outside of his contract, he’ll get an injunction to halt the fight from taking place. However, Chavez Jr., 28, is saying that he’s checked with his lawyers and that he thinks Arum can’t do anything to stop his fight with Fonfara from taking place. Read the rest of this entry »
