title Klitschko’s manager not impressed with Tyson Fury’s win over Hammer

By Scott Gilfoid: Bernd Boente, the manager for IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, wasn’t impressed with unbeaten #1 WBO contender Tyson Fury’s victory over Germany’s #3 WBO Christian Hammer (17-4, 10 KOs) last Saturday night in London. Fury stopped Hammer in the 8th round, but he looked slow and not particularly powerful with his punching power. Read the rest of this entry »

title Deontay Wilder to fight in June, says trainer

deontay73By Scott Gilfoid: WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (33-0, 32 KOs) expects to be back in the ring in the next three months against an opponent still to be determined in June. Deontay, 6’7”, had been hoping to get a fight against Britain’s Tyson Fury, but unfortunately Fury is opting to fight IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko instead.

Fury hopes that fight will take place later this year in September, but it’s still up in the air whether that fight will take place at that time. It’s possible Fury could wind up waiting a little longer. Read the rest of this entry »

By Dan Ambrose: If former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-1-1, 32 KOs) is going to be ready for his fight next month on April 18th against Andrzej Fonfara (26-3, 15 KOs), Chavez Jr is going to need to lose a lot of weight to be ready for the catch-weight fight at 172 pounds.

In a photo the 28-year-old Chavez Jr posted on his Instragram on Sunday, Chavez Jr looks very, very heavy. My guess is Chavez Jr is weighing at least 200 pounds, possibly a little more. Read the rest of this entry »

title Canelo: I will get the victory over Kirkland on May 9th; my fans won’t be disappointed

canelo15By Dan Ambrose: Former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) is confident that his hand will be raised on May 9th at the end of his fight against American James Kirkland (32-1, 28 KOs) in their fight at the Minute Maid Stadium in Houston, Texas. The fight will take place at a catch-weight of 155 pounds.

With boxing fans excited about the Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight, few fans are talking about Canelo’s fight against the ring rusty Kirkland.

Part of the reason for that is because Kirkland hasn’t fought since 2013, and he’s been largely forgotten about by a lot of fans. Further, the younger boxing fans have never heard of Kirkland, because it’s been so long since he was really relevant at 154. His inactivity has caused him to be left behind by a lot of fans.

title McGuigan: Carl Frampton is the best fighter in the world!

frampton4455By Scott Gilfoid: It looks like IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton’s 5th round stoppage win over #1 IBF Chris Avalos (25-3, 19 KOs) last Saturday night may have gone to Frampton’s manager Barry McGuigan’s head, because he’s now talking about Frampton being the best fighter in the boxing world.

Presumably, McGuigan thinks that Frampton is even better than WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz and WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux, two fighters who many boxing fans see as the best in the division. Read the rest of this entry »

title Peter Quillin needs to show more ambition

quillin33 (2)By Jon Ward: “Hey Kid Chocolate, how does it feel to be the best middleweight on the planet?” tweeted Oscar De La Hoya (Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin’s promoter) in July of 2013. Gennady Golovkin, the WBA champion had just moved to 27-0 with a display of body punching that nearly broke challenger Matthew Macklin in half and Sergio Martinez, still undefeated at middleweight then was universally recognized as the real 160lb champion at that time.

Quillin’s 28-0 record and WBO title weren’t insignificant despite the poor quality of his opposition and although De La Hoya’s comments were clearly not unconnected to his vested interest in Quillin’s career, there were many who saw the popular Chicago fighter as a future force in one of boxing’s most competitive divisions.

title DeMarcus Corley to work as sparring partner for Floyd Mayweather Jr

floyd423By Chris Williams: Former IBF champion DeMarcus Corley (42-22-1, 25 KOs) will be working as one of WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr’s sparring partners to help him get ready for his May 2nd fight against Manny Pacquiao, according to The other sparring partners aren’t known as of now.

While Corley doesn’t have a fighting style that is similar to Pacquiao, he does have similar punching power. The difference is Pacquiao is faster and a little bit younger at 36. Corley is taller than Pacquiao at 5’7” compared to the 5’6” Pacquiao. Corley’s southpaw style should get Mayweather prepared well for Pacquiao’s southpaw stance. Read the rest of this entry »

title Atlas wants Golovkin to fight Quillin and Jacobs

1-01By Dan Ambrose: ESPN commentator Teddy Atlas went on a long rant last Friday night in talking about WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s recent 11th round stoppage win over an overmatched Martin Murray (29-2-1, 12 KOs) in their fight in Monte Carlo last week in their fight on February 21st.

The fight was supposed to have been a competitive one in the eyes of some boxing fans, but it turned out to be a one-sided affair with Golovkin chasing an unwilling Murray around the ring for 10 rounds before Golovkin finally caught up to Murray in the 11th and stopped him on his feet.

title The problems facing Kid Galahad

By Olly Campbell: British boxing rocked the world super bantamweight division last night in Belfast after Carl Frampton’s sensational home town defense of his IBF 122lb strap against brash American challenger, Chris Avalos.

After what can only be described as a ruthless and unforgiving clinic in which Frampton stopped his completely outclassed opponent, arguably the biggest domestic fight out there besides Kell Brook V Amir Khan inched ever closer to reality when WBA (reg) champion Scott Quigg entered the ring to be interviewed alongside Frampton and promoter Barry McGuigan.

title Malignaggi: Pacquiao will need to make adjustments to beat Mayweather

pac73729999By Chris Williams: Manny Pacquiao isn’t known for being the type of fighter who makes a lot of adjustments to outsmart his opponents. He’s basically the same fighter every time out, which is why he’s struggled so badly against guys like Juan Manuel Marquez.

For that reason former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi thinks Pacquiao is going to be in deep, deep trouble on 5/2 when he gets inside the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr in their huge money mega-fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Read the rest of this entry »
