title Andre Dirrell willing to fight James DeGale in the UK

dirrell3432By Scott Gilfoid: #2 IBF Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) is fully prepared to travel to the UK to face #1 IBF James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) for the vacant IBF super middleweight title on April 25th if he has to.

Dirrell would obviously prefer the fight take place in the United States so that he can fight in front of his own boxing fans, but he’s willing and unafraid of fighting the 29-year-old DeGale in front of his British fans if the money is right.

Dirrell and DeGale are both in negotiations as of now, but the fight is expected to be announced by next week possibly. Read the rest of this entry »



title Roach has changed game plan for Pacquiao in Mayweather fight

roachBy Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach says that both Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao have both aged in the last five years, and because of that he can’t use the same game plan that he would have had for Mayweather if the two guys had faced each other back in 2009.

Roach isn’t saying what the new game plan is for the 36-year-old Pacquiao, because he’s currently studying Mayweather’s recent fights. In the past, Roach thought that the best way for Pacquiao to beat Mayweather was to overwhelm him with punches and to put a lot of constant pressure on him. Read the rest of this entry »



title Will monopolization of the boxing Big Names hurt Fight Fans?

By Gerardo Granados: Professional Boxing has never been easy to handle and is as complex as any industry that brings multimillion dollar earnings per year worldwide. Once there were many Boxing Promoters that you could relate to major events such as Don King, Top Rank, Duva Promotions, Main Events, Frank Warren, Lou Di Bella, Cedric Kushner and others; and somehow those promoters found a way to work together.

title Demetrius Andrade rips Canelo Alvarez

canelo001010101By Jermill Pennington: In a very candid interview with Tha Boxing Voice Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade (21-0-14ko’s) took the opportunity while cameras were rolling to rip in to Canelo Alvarez in epic fashion. Andrade the current WBO super welterweight champion wanted to know why Canelo choose to fight James Kirkland instead of him this coming May. Andrade went on to point out how Kirkland has been out of action since December of 2013 and has no belt to offer.

Andrade who is available for the May date and is a guy in the division that has a belt and had this to say “I usually don’t say this about fighters but Canelo you’s a b!+@$”. Andrade went on to call Canelo out of his name several times as well as the Charlo brothers calling them bums “jamell, jamal, whichever one of them bums”. Read the rest of this entry »



title A great weekend for the journeyman fighters

By Gav Duthie: I really wish there were more people in boxing like Derric Rossy 30-9 (14) and Carson Jones 37-10-3 (27).  In boxing there are too many who slide by as they add numbers to their record without taking any risks. In no other sport in the world can an individual or team build up an unbeaten reputation without actually facing live opponents. This is where the likes of Rossy and Jones are imperative to expose these pretenders. Read the rest of this entry »

title Andy Lee wants unification match against Golovkin next year

lee2By Scott Gilfoid: WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee (34-2, 24 KOs) still hasn’t made his first title defense against former WBO title holder Peter Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs), yet Lee is already thinking well beyond that fight for a unification bout against possibly the winner of this Saturday night’s bout between WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin vs. Martin Murray.

The Lee-Quillin fight will be taking place on April 11th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The venue is a perfect one for Quillin, who lives in New York, so the boxing fans that show up for the fight will likely be predominately in favor of Quillin. As such, you have to assume that Quillin will beat Lee one way or another. Read the rest of this entry »

title Nathan Cleverly to fight on April 25th at O2 in London, UK

cleverly777By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (28-2, 14 KOs) will be back at 175 for his next fight against an opponent still to be determined on April 25th at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

Cleverly was going to be fighting on April 11th, but the date has moved forward for him to fight on the possible Evgeny Gradovich vs. Lee Selby card on April 25th. The card obviously needs as many names as possible for it to be a big success, so it makes sense for Cleverly to have been put there. Read the rest of this entry »



title David Price v Irineu Costa this Saturday, February 21st in Berlin, Germany

price5By Scott Gilfoid: This Saturday night on February 21st, #12 WBO heavyweight contender David Price (18-2, 15 KO) will be looking to pick up his fourth consecutive win when he faces a fighter named Irineu Beato Costa Junior (16-2, 14 KOs) in a 10 round bout at the O2 World Arena, Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany.

The Price-Costa Junior fight will be on the undercard of the Arthur Abraham vs. Paul Smith II card, and hopefully the fight will make for an entertaining affair. It’s obviously a mismatch on paper, as the 34-year-old Costa Junior fighter is being brought in to give the 31-year-old Price some rounds. Read the rest of this entry »
