By Robert Elmore: When I hear people say “they fought everybody back in the day”, I can assume they mean fighters who had no intentions of moving up in weight. Therefore, that statement holds much weight. And if fighters in the lower divisions wanted a shot at the title, they had to move up. Read the rest of this entry »

By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s announced in his London press conference today that he will be back in the ring on June 29th in a comeback of sorts at the Manchester Arena against one of five potential unbeaten non-British heavyweights, according to his manager/trainer Adam Booth.
Haye hasn’t fought since beating domestic level heavyweight Dereck Chisora last July in a 5th round blowout in the UK.
It’s hard to really call this a comeback when Haye has only been out of boxing for less than a year. Haye fighting once a year is kind of the norm for him, and yes it’s a definite waste of his career to be that inactive, but that’s on him. Read the rest of this entry »
By Scott Gilfoid: If British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price (15-1, 13 KO’s) can get past 6’5” Tony Thompson (37-3, 25 KO’s) in their rematch on July 6th, Price will then defend his domestic level straps against Dereck Chisora (15-4, 9 KO’s) this year.
The Price-Chisora fight also hinges upon Chisora getting past Ondrej Pala (32-3, 22 KO’s) on April 20th on the Nathan Cleverly vs. Robin Krasniqi card at the Wembley Arena in London, UK. At this point in his career Chisora can’t take any wins for granted because he hasn’t won a fight in two years. That’s pretty sad, but true. Read the rest of this entry »
By Scott Gilfoid: #8 WBC heavyweight contender Manuel Charr (23-1, 13 KO’s) says he’s willing to step up to the plate and be David Haye’s next opponent for his comeback fight on June 29th in Manchester, England.
Charr, 28, attempted previously to get a fight with Haye by calling him out after Haye, #1 WBA, #4 IBF, #4 WBO, #5 WBC, defeated Dereck Chisora last July. Charr crashed the post-fight press conference and challenged Haye to fight him.
Haye instead of saying get lost, he tactically blew him off by telling Charr to call his manager Adam Booth to set up the fight. Haye then went into retirement. Read the rest of this entry »
By Scott Gilfoid: Audley Harrison (31-6, 23 KO’s) finally spoke up to wipe out the nasty rumor that has been floating around for the past couple of months from some of his well-wishing fans about him supposedly having knocked the talented 6’7” KO artist Deontay Wilder down in a sparring session while Harrison was getting ready for his fight with British/Commonwealth heavyweight champion David Price last October.
Audley said this on his twitter about that so-called incident: “I’ll put the stupid Internet talk to bed right now. I DID NOT put down @BronzeBomber in sparring. In the fact the opposite happened.” Read the rest of this entry »
By Dan Ambrose: WBO lightweight champion Adrien Broner (26-0, 22 KO’s) doesn’t think too much of WBA welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi’s skills or power, and he sees him as an easy victory when the two meet up on June 22nd on Showtime at the Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York, USA.
Broner, who still refers to himself as “Mr. HBO” despite the fact that his fights will be televised on Showtime now due to Golden Boy Promotions fighters being frozen out by HBO, said to ARBeatGang “I’ve got this fight coming up with Paulette. I call him Paulette the Magic Chick. He’s going to let me feel his power. What’s the f*** up in that sentence. Paulette, who you going to stop? Who gonna slap asleep? What you got, seven knockouts?

By Chris Williams: Much has been made of the power and the ability of WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (31-1, 20 KO’s) to end a fight early with one of his big right hooks to the head, but it looks like boxing fans and writers are forgetting the knockout power that Donaire’s April 13th opponent WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0, 8 KO’s) has going for him.
There are eight fighters on Rigondeaux’s resume that can testify to the punching power that Rigondeaux has going for him, and unlike Donaire, Rigondeaux’s fights tend to end suddenly without warning. Read the rest of this entry »
(Photo credit: Casino/Showtime) By Dan Ambrose: Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-1-1, 18 KO’s) says he’s not going to let WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26 KO’s) get in his game when they meet up in two months on May 4th at them MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Guerrero says he’s going to go out and take immediate control of the fight like he did with former IBF/WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto in his last fight in November of last year in beating Berto by a 12 round unanimous decision. Guerrero started fast, and never really let Berto get his own game started.
Guerrero said to ESPN: “Definitely there’s no intimidation, and I think he’s starting to figure out that it’s pretty hard to intimidate me. He’d doing things that he’s never done before. He gets out there; he looks at me, and then just goes off talking. Since then, he’s been totally calm. Read the rest of this entry »
