title Anthony Joshua faces Rafael Zumbano Love tonight

joshua66By Scott Gilfoid: Heavyweight Anthony Joshua (11-0, 11 KOs) will be putting his unbeaten record on the line tonight against the hard hitting journeyman Rafael Zumbano Love (36-10-1, 29 KOs) tonight in what should be an easy win for him at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, UK.

Joshua, 6’6”, wants to do things his way and face the guys at his own pace rather than step up and start fighting the talented heavyweights in the division. The 2012 Olympic super heavyweight gold medalist still has a long ways to go before he’s proven himself as being capable of winning a world title. Read the rest of this entry »

title McGuigan sees Ricky Burns with tough fight against Figueroa tonight

Omar Figueroa and Ricky BurnsBy Scott Gilfoid: Barry McGuigan has his doubts whether former two division world champion Ricky Burns (37-4-1, 11 KOs) will be able to pull off an upset tonight in his fight at light welterweight against the young 25-year-old former WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa (24-0-1, 18 KOs) on CBS on Premier Boxing Champions at the State Farm Arena, in Hidalgo, Texas, USA.

Burns, 32, is the wrong age, McGuigan says, to be facing a young fighter like Figueroa. It’s the wrong country for the fight as well because Burns will be traveling outside of the friendly confines of Scotland to face Figueroa in his home state of Texas in the United States.

title Mayweather could make $250M to $275M, Pacquiao $190M for “Fight of the Century”

1-MAYPAC WEIGH IN-TRAPPFOTOS-3616By Chris Williams: It’s looking like the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight last Saturday will not only break the all-time pay-per-view number of 2.4 million but it will also likely shatter it by a considerable margin.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports is estimating the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight will bring in from 5.6 million to 6.43 million pay-per-view buys. At the same time that number, plus additional revenue streams bringing money in for the fight, will shoot Mayweather’s paycheck to $250 million to $275 million. That’s quarter of a billion dollars for Mayweather. Pacquiao could make $170M to $190M. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mansour decisions Dawejko in dull fight

mansour56By Dan Ambrose: In what was supposed to be an exciting action-packed heavyweight fight that made boxing fans forget about the boring Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight turned out to be every bit as boring with heavyweight Amir Mansour (22-1, 16 KOs) defeated the rounded Joey Dawejko (14-4-2, 7 KOs) by a 10 round unanimous decision on ESPN2 on Friday night from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

About the most exciting thing about the Mansour- Dawejko fight was the head-butts that occurred, which resulted in both fighters suffering cuts. Other than that, both guys fought in a timid manner for the most part, and neither seemed to want to mix it up.

It was like watching a couple of defensive artists paw at each other for 10 rounds. The final judges’ scores were 97-93, 96-94 and 98-92. Read the rest of this entry »



title The end of the road for the great Carl Froch

froch0034552By Jose Espinoza: According to promoter Eddie Hearn, Carl Froch may never fight again after the WBA boxing association has stripped his protégé of the super-middleweight title. The 37 year-old-fighter is now left to ponder his uncertain future amidst lingering questions about his health and his rank as one of Britain’s best fighters to have graced the ring.

A statement was released by the WBA which states that the WBA commitee has withdrawn its recognition of Froch after he failed to secure a defense after a year long interval of inactivity forgoing in the process his IBF title. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Boxing Dead? (Boxing is Immortal)

By Wilmar Patino (Boxing’s Finest): Welcome Back Boxing fans to another article for the hardcore and casual fans of this great sport. Since last weekend’s big fight I’ve been hearing a lot of hoopla between Boxing fans especially from the casuals saying that Boxing is Dead. This has been a strong statement that is made every now and then after a big disappointment in Boxing. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Mayweather Jr. unbeatable?

1-MAYPAC-FIGHTNIGHT-TRAPPFOTOS-6748By Adam Foy: Floyd Mayweather Jr. would have us believe he is the finest pugilist this world has ever seen. His aim is, and has always been, to leave behind a legacy of greatness that is beyond any sensible argument. Now, at 38 years of age, every fight is a statement for Mayweather, a box ticked, an exclamation mark on a dazzling career.

The accusations that tend to be leveled at great fighters can’t really be leveled at Floyd; from Super-featherweight to Super-welterweight he has convincingly defeated every fighter of note his generation has to offer, re-matching any close decisions and stamping out any doubts as to his superiority.

title Klitschko vs. Fury possible for September or October in UK

wladimir53562By Dan Ambrose: IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko could be defending his titles against his #1 WBO mandatory Tyson Fury in his home country of the UK rather than in Germany where Wladimir has had most of his fights take place since turning pro 19 years ago.

Klitschko is reportedly interested in whipping Fury in front of his own British fans to put him in his place. Wladimir recently beat American Bryant Jennings in front of his own fans in the United States last April in a 12 round unanimous decision win in a fight that was tougher than expected.
