title Hearn: Andre Dirrell is probably the favorite over DeGale

dirrell445By Scott Gilfoid: A fight between #1 IBF super middleweight contender James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) and #2 IBF Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) is being worked on for April 25th by DeGale’s promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport and Dirrell’s manager.

Hearn sees Dirrell as being the favorite in the fight. Hearn doesn’t say why he believes that, but it likely has to do with Dirrell’s superior hand speed, power, defense, mobility and experience. Dirrell is simply a better fighter from what I can see. Read the rest of this entry »



title Anything but Hopkins-Froch

hopkinsBy B.G.B: We all love (or at the very least respect) Bernhard Hopkins. He’s gone beyond what any trainer, fighter, manager, promoter or fan could have ever imagined. At 50 years old he still remains at world level having lost his IBF and WBA light-heavy weight world titles just a few weeks ago to the best fighter in the division Sergey Kovalev.

Managing to survive 12 rounds with Kovalev is a feat in itself more so considering the amount of punishment Hopkins took. He has more than cemented his place in the BHOF and will never be forgotten. The sad thing is that Hopkins’ actually fights are easily forgotten. Read the rest of this entry »



title Brian Rose: I demand a rematch against Carson Jones

By Scott Gilfoid: In what has to be seen as a nightmare for Britain’s Brian Rose (26-3-1, 8 KOs) tonight in Blackpool, he was destroyed in lightning fashion by ring veteran Carson Jones (37-10-3, 27 KOs) in a 1st round knockout at the Winter Gardens in England. Read the rest of this entry »



title Espinoza: Mayweather and Showtime will have the biggest fight ever on 5/2

floyd002By Dan Ambrose: With the news that the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao could be announced within hours or perhaps a day from now, Showtime vice president of Sports Stephen Espinoza is already seeing the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight as the biggest fight that has ever taken place in the sport of boxing.

The fight is said to have a pot of $250 million with Mayweather set to bring home $150 million and Pacquiao $100 million. With money like that, Pacquiao can pay off any bills that he might have in his life that he may or may not have to deal with. Read the rest of this entry »



title Carson Jones destroys Brian Rose in 1st round TKO

By Scott Gilfoid: Just as I suspected, American journeyman Carson Jones (37-10-3, 27 KOs) totally annihilated the hapless junior middleweight Brian Rose (26-3-1, 8 KOs) in blasting him out in just one round on Saturday night in their fight for the vacant WBC International super welterweight title at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, Lancashire, United Kingdom.

title Mayweather-Pacquiao fight to be announced on Sunday during NBA All Star game?

floyd8282828By Chris Williams: The Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao mega-fight will be announced this Sunday, February 15th during the NBA All Star game, according to 8countnews. Their two sources, which they say are “credible sources,” are saying that Mayweather will drop the bomb by announcing his fight against Pacquiao tomorrow.

In order for Mayweather to be beaten to the punch with inside sources spilling the beans before his announcement, he’s probably going to need to hold off on signing the contract until right before his announcement. You know how that goes. Read the rest of this entry »



title Chavez Jr interested in Golovkin fight

chavez50By Dan Ambrose: If former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr gets past his fight against light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara on April 18th, Chavez Jr reportedly is interested in a possible fight against WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Chavez Jr says he wants the fight against WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch fight, because he sees him as being a better fighter than Golovkin and Bernard Hopkins. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather vs. Pacquiao deal is nearing the finish line, but NOT done!

floyd7By Chris Williams: The Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao fight negotiations are coming close to being finished, but it’s still not a done deal at this point. There are reports that Pacquiao has signed the contract for the fight already, but that Mayweather still hasn’t signed his part of the contract.

While some boxing fans see this as a sign that the fight is a done deal, it actually means very little. As we already know, Pacquiao has been on board and ready to for ages for the fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin vs. Murray only one week away for HBO on 2/21

golovkin3255By Scott Gilfoid: Next Saturday night on February 21st, WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) will be defending his WBA title against #1 WBC Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs) on HBO Championship Boxing in Monte Carlo.

Earlier today, Golovkin and Murray both weighed in for their 7-day weights. Golovkin came in at 163 pounds. Murray weighed in five pounds over the middleweight limit at 165 pounds. Golovkin has very little weight to take off for the fight, and he should have no problems. Read the rest of this entry »



title Mayweather-Pacquiao: No news is good news in negotiations

floyd#20By Chris Williams: For boxing fans waiting anxiously to hear any news of progress in the Floyd Mayweather Jr – Manny Pacquiao negotiations, there was nothing said as of last Friday. However, there are a lot of positive rumors floating around that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight could be about to be announced by Mayweather by next week.

Whether that happens or not is unclear. In the meantime, the lack of news on the fight negotiations can be seen as a good thing, because we’ve recently been hearing mainly negative stuff about the negotiations not making any forward progress. But with no one saying anything now, it has to be seen as a positive. Read the rest of this entry »
