title A ring rusty Robert Guerrero faces Selcuk Adyin on Saturday for interim WBC 147 lb title

selcuk aydin robert guerrero  photo(Photo: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Dan Ambrose: Robert Guerrero (29-1-1, 18 KO’s) has got some major strikes going against him in his fight tomorrow night against welterweight knockout artist Selcuk Aydin (23-0, 17 KO’s) at the HP Pavilion, in San Jose, California.

The 29-year-old Guerrero hasn’t fought since last year in April, and when he did it was at lightweight. Guerrero is moving up in weight big time for this fight, and it strikes one as a desperate move by Guerrero. He’s been out of the ring for 15 months, and is moving up in weight two divisions. He’s also coming off of rotator cuff surgery on his left shoulder. Read the rest of this entry »

title Ricky Hatton looking in fighting shape, but who’s bad enough for him to beat?

ricky hatton  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: Judging by the recent photos I’ve personally seen of former two division world champion Ricky Hatton, he looks to be in the neighborhood of 150 pounds. He’s clearly dropped at least 60 to 70 pounds of flab from his frame and possibly he can lose another 10 pounds to make at 140 fairly easily. Read the rest of this entry »

title Professional Boxing: Why do we keep on watching?

antonio demarco  photoBy Gerardo Granados: Once upon a time I saw warriors fight each other, and I like it so much that since I have not stopped watching. Sigh at the memories, when I recall some of those great fights I saw, it makes me sad to see that some of the new boxing stars lack of the hunger of a lion king, and most of them lack of that mean tough attitude. To watch the brutal violence inside the ring make us feel alive and to deny it´s just too hypocrite. Read the rest of this entry »

title Burns-Mitchell winner won’t have much time to savor the win

ricky burns kevin mitchell  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: It kind of goes without saying that the September 22nd bout between WBO lightweight champion Ricky Burns (34-2, 9 KO’s) and Kevin Mitchell (33-1, 24 KO’s) is little more than the future victim for Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s), who is now moving up to lightweight and has been reportedly told that he’ll be getting the #1 WBO ranking.

lucian bute  photoBy Scott Gilfoid: Former IBF super middleweight champ Lucian Bute (30-1, 24 KO’s) is showing a lot of courage by being willing to fight undefeated light heavyweight knockout artist Denis Grachev (12-0, 8 KO’s) on November 3rd at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
