title Chavez Jr. can’t afford to let Sergio Martinez tee off on him

sergio martinez julio cesar chavez jr  photoBy Dan Ambrose: Trainer Freddie Roach better have figured out how to teach his pupil WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez (46-0-1, 32 KO’s) how to block some punches with his gloves for a change because if he goes out there on September 15th using his head to block the huge shots from Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO’s), Roach will be as sad-faced as he was when he saw another one of his high profile fighters Amir Khan get blasted out recently.

title Will Anthony Joshua keep improving or is this as good as he gets?

anthony joshua  photoBy William Mackay: After winning the 2012 Olympic super heavyweight boxing gold medal, Britain’s Anthony Joshua is still seen as a work in progress by many boxing fans. They point out the reason why Joshua struggled through the Olympic competition and won several questionable decisions along the way was because Joshua has been boxing for only four years. The problem here is that a lot of Joshua’s competition in the Olympics were about the same age as him at 22, and if Joshua gets better you got to imagine the guys he competed against will get better as well. Joshua’s wins over Erislandy Savon, Ivan Dychko and Roberto Cammerelle were highly questionable ones. Savon and Dychko are both only 22. Read the rest of this entry »

title Arum risking another loss for Pacquiao by having him fight on November 10th

manny pacquiao  photoBy Chris Williams: Bob Arum is really taking a huge risk with his aging money fighter Manny Pacquiao by having him take the November 10th fight date in Las Vegas against one of three opponents that Arum has chosen for the Filipino to pick from for the date. Instead of letting Pacquiao rest up and wait for a big, big fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in early 2013, Arum is going to have Pacquiao fight again before the end of the year.

title Audley Harrison looked better winning his gold than Anthony Joshua did in winning his medal

robert cammerelle audley harrison anthony joshua  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: I must say that after watching Britain’s Anthony Joshua win the gold medal in the super heavyweight division today against Italy’s Roberto Cammarelle in controversial fashion for the third time in this year’s Olympics, I think Audley Harrison of Britain did a MUCH better job of winning his Olympic super heavyweight gold medal in the 2000 Olympics.

title Is Joshua’s gold medal victory tainted?

robert cammerelle anthony joshua  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: In looking around at some of the general comments I’m seeing around the internet about British super heavyweight Anthony Joshua’s questionable gold medial decision victory over Italy’s Roberto Cammarelle earlier today on Sunday in Joshua’s home country of England, it appears that not too many boxing fans feel that the 22-year-old Joshua really deserved to get the decision. They pretty much unanimously see Joshua having lost to Cammarelle today. I think that kind of taints Joshua’s victory, doesn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »



title Lomachenko defeats Soonchul to capture Gold medal

vasyl lomachenko  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: Former 2008 featherweight Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine Vasyl Lomachenko added a second gold medal this time in the lightweight division with a decision victory over Korea’s Han Soonchul by the scores of 19-9.

That was kind of a wide decision if you ask me because apart from the 1st round, there wasn’t much action to speak of. Lomachenko landed well in the 1st round with pot shot lefts and rights, but the 2nd and 3rd rounds were mostly clinching. Read the rest of this entry »

title Cammarelle deserved to get the gold medal, not Joshua

robert cammerelle anthony joshua  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: You only had to take one look on the face of talented Italian super heavyweight Roberto Cammarelle to know how completely disgusted he was with the judges decision to give Britain’s Anthony Joshua the gold medal in their 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medal finals match in London, England.
