title A British Super-Middleweight Super Six Tournament

smith1111By Robbie Bannatyne: They say when one door closes another door opens. So while many boxing fans are mourning the loss of Carl Froch, after he announced that the George Groves fight was indeed his last gig, we shouldn’t worry too much. As there is a new band of British super-middleweights who are ready to usher in a fresh, exciting era.

There is an embarrassment of riches at 168lb, the only problem being that all the top British fighters want to be front men- none of the band will be content playing bass. Of course not all the eminent 168lb British boxers can take centre stage: there must be winners and losers in the battle for supremacy in the super-middleweight division.

title Magomedov defeats Webster


By Jim Dower: Undefeated #4 WBA middleweight contender Arif Magomedov (16-0, 9 KOs) stayed unbeaten and increased his chances of an eventual fight against WBA 160lb champion Gennady Golovkin by defeated Derrick Webster (19-1, 10 KOs) tonight by a 10 round unanimous decision at the Sands Casino Hotel in Bethlehem, PA.

title Ward’s camp wants Golovkin fight this fall, then Kovalev

ward53543(Photo credit: Tom Hogan – Hoganphotos/Roc Nation Sports) By Dan Ambrose: Andre Ward’s camp are reportedly interested in setting him up with a fight against WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) this fall, according to Dan Rafael. After that, they want to move Ward up to 175 for him to face IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev.

The idea is go tight Golovkin at whatever catch-weight that he can get for the fight, and then move up in weight. They don’t want Ward to move up in weight to take the Kovalev fight first and then have to move down in weight to face Golovkin. It would obviously be hard on Ward to move back down after he moves up to 175 for the Kovalev fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title The Price isn’t right: David Price obliterated in Germany

1-Photo (9)

By Daniel Reed: Named ESPN’s prospect of the year back in 2012, the sky seemed to be the limit for David Price. Riding a 9 fight knockout streak into 2013, the buzz was beginning to really gather around him, and he seemed, at the time, to be Britain’s best hope of claiming the heavyweight crown–with many rating him above Tyson Fury. The 2006 Commonwealth Games Champion, and a Super-Heavyweight Bronze medalist at the 2008 Olympic Games, Price had the background, and he seemed to have the goods to make it to the top.

By Scott Gilfoid: – photos: – Uwe Koch — Kalle Sauerland, the promoter for British heavyweight David Price (19-3, 16 KOs), says the 32-year-old Price is OK after his 2nd round knockout loss to German KO machine Erkan Teper (15-0, 10 KOs) on Friday night at MHP Arena in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Price was knocked clean out by a left hook from Teper in the 2nd round. Read the rest of this entry »

title Weights: Frampton 121.6, Gonzalez Jr. 121.4; Arreola 246.8, Kassi 225

Arreola and Kassi(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Scott Gilfoid: IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton (20-0, 14 KOs) made weight on Friday in coming in at 121.6 pounds for his title defense against #13 IBF Alejandro “Cobrita” Gonzalez Jr. (25-1-2, 15 KOs) for their fight on Saturday on Premier Boxing Champions on CBS from the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas. The 22-year-old Gonzalez Jr. weighed in at 121.4lbs, and looked in good shape for the fight.

Frampton is heavily favored to beat the stuffing out of Gonzalez Jr., and I can’t see there being any chance at all of an upset. Read the rest of this entry »

title Chavez Jr. comes in overweight at 170.8 at weigh-in for Reyes fight

Chavez and Reyes(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Dan Ambrose: Former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (48-2-1, 32 KOs) had been bragging recently about how good of shape he’s in and how he’s unbeatable when he’s at his weight, but surprisingly, Chavez Jr. failed to make weight on Friday in coming in at 170.8 pounds for his fight against Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24 KOs) on Saturday night at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas.

After stripping off clothes to get as much weight off as possible, Chavez Jr. still weighed in .8 over the limit for the fight. However, the fight will still take place. Chavez Jr. reportedly agreed to pay Reyes’ team for being overweight for the fight. Reyes weighed in at 168.4lbs. Read the rest of this entry »

title Ward vs. GGG: who’s really the A-side?

golovkin64By Greg Harris: Over the last few months, talks of a potential clash between unbeaten champions Andre Ward, and Gennady Golovkin have began to seriously heat up in the boxing world. Golovkin is the darling of HBO boxing, and considered the A-side fighter in the eyes of many boxing fans.

Golovkin is also the undefeated WBA, and the IBO middleweight champion. Andre Ward on the other hand is considered the best boxer in the world pound for pound by some, and the true A-side fighter of this fight by many boxing fans as well. He is also the undefeated WBA super middleweight champion. Obviously a fight between these two would be one of the best fights to be made for boxing in 2015. But in this day in age of prize fighting.

title Erkan Teper destroys David Price in 2nd round

price6666By Scott Gilfoid: As expected, David Price (19-3, 16 KOs) was totally obliterated tonight by unbeaten Germany knockout artist Erkan Teper (15-0, 10 KOs) in getting destroyed in just two rounds on Friday in a fight for the vacant European Boxing Union title at the Ludwigsburg MHP Arena, Ludwigsburg, Baden-Württemberg.

Teper flattened Price with a tremendous left hook to the head early in the 2nd round that put Price down flat on his back on the canvas. Price was so badly hurt that he couldn’t get up for a while and the referee immediately halted the bout to have Price looked at. Read the rest of this entry »

title Weights: Quigg-Martinez, Perez-Crolla & Murray-Bajretarevic

crolla2(Photo credit: Thompson Boxing) By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated WBA “regular” super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs) made weight on Friday for his title defense against #11 WBA fringe contender Kiko Martinez (32-5, 24 KOs) for their fight this Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.

Quigg weighed in at 121.75lbs. His opponent came in at 121.6. It’s difficult to get really excited about the Quigg-Martinez match-up because Martinez has beaten twice by Carl Frampton. I’m not sure what the purpose was in Quigg’s promoter Eddie Hear matching him against an opponent who has lost 2 out of his last 3 fights in Martinez, but whatever the case it’s not interesting.
