title Broner wants Juan Manuel Marquez

By Scott Gilfoid: With WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner (25-0, 21 KO’s) having little luck trying to get WBO lightweight champ Ricky Burns to step inside the ring to face him, the 23-year-old Broner is now targeting Juan Manuel Marquez, the WBO “Fighter of the Decade” to take on if Marquez is up for the fight. Broner believes he’ll beat Marquez, but he doubts that he’ll get the fight.

Broner said to Radio Raheem “I am the biggest face of boxing now. I am the greatest of this era. If Marquez is willing to fight me, I’d love to put on a great show and do what I do best, win. I want to get a victory under my belt in that fight. I can hear him [Marquez] saying the age difference.” Read the rest of this entry »



title Groves predicts knockout victory over Glen Johnson tonight

groves5By Scott Gilfoid: Commonwealth super middleweight champion George Groves (15-0, 12 KO’s) thinks he can do what Carl Froch, Andre Ward, Lucian Bute and Tavoris Cloud couldn’t do and that’s knockout Glen Johnson (51-17-2, 35 KO’s) when the cocky 24-year-old Groves faces the 43-year-old Johnson tonight at the ExCel Arena, Dockland, London, United Kingdom.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, Groves said “Clearly Glencoffe knows how to survive, even if he doesn’t come to survive. Stopping him would make a huge statement. I do expect to stop him don’t expect him to just fall over.” Read the rest of this entry »



title Pascal defeats Kuziemski, but injures shoulder

pascal1By Jim Dower: Coming off of a long layoff of over a year and a half former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (27-2-1, 16 KO’s) defeated 35-year-old Aleksy Kuziemski (23-5, 7 KO’s) by a 10 round unanimous decision on Friday night at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Canada.

The final judges scores were 100-88, 98-90 and 98-90. What made this especially impressive for Pascal was that he fought with only his right hand from the midpoint of the 4th round for the remainder of the fight after getting his left arm caught on the ring support strap while attempting to throw a left hook in that round.

title Weigh-in Abraham vs. Bouadla

abraham44(Photo: Wende) By Jim Dower: WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham (35-3, 27 KO’s) made weight on Friday for his fight on Saturday night against challenger Mehdi Bouadla (26-4, 11 KO’s) at the Arena Nürnberger Versicherung, Nuremberg (Nürnberg), Bayern, Germany. Abraham, 32, weighed right on the super middleweight limit of 168 pounds. His opponent Bouadla, 30, weighed in at 164.7 lbs.

It’s hard to understand why Abraham chose to fight #14 WBO Bouadla, because there are arguably a lot better fighters in the division that Abraham could have fought for a lot more money than what he’ll get for this bout. It just looks like Abraham wanted to take a safe, easy fight for his first defense rather than take any kind of risk. Read the rest of this entry »



title Lemieux destroys Ayrapetyan

lemieux1By Jim Dower: Canadian middleweight David Lemieux (28-2, 27 KO’s) continued with his successful comeback tonight with an impressive 2nd round knockout of an over-matched 31-year-old Albert Ayrapetyan (20-4, 9 KO’s) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. Lemieux, 23, knocked Ayrapetyan down three times in the fight, and ended it with a big right hand that dropped Ayrapetyan as he foolishly was attempting to fight off the ropes.

Lemieux knocked Ayrapetyan down twice in the 1st round and Ayrapetyan barely escaped the round. Lemieux scored the first knockdown on a hard left hook to the head. Ayrapetyan seemed to be doing okay after the knockdown until Lemieux flurried on him when Ayrapetyan once again backed up to the ropes. Read the rest of this entry »



title Weights: Groves 166.8, Johnson 167.5

By Scott Gilfoid: Commonwealth super middleweight champion George Groves (15-0, 12 KO’s) made weight today for his fight on Saturday night against the much more experienced Glen Johnson (51-17-2, 35 KO’s) at the ExCel Arena, Dockland, in London, United Kingdom. Groves, 24, weighed in at 166.9 pounds. Johnson, 43, weighed 167.5 lbs and looked in sensational shape. Read the rest of this entry »



title Pacquiao should dump Roach

pac888By Chris Williams: I think it would be a good idea for Manny Pacquiao to start with a clean slate for his next fight by starting over with an entire new training team to get him ready for his rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez, if Pacquiao insists on taking that fight.

I believe the smartest thing for Pacquiao to do right now would be to take a decisive move and clear out his entire team, including trainer Freddie Roach, assistant trainer Buboy Fernandez and strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza. Pacquiao needs a whole new team if he’s going to come back from the knockout he suffered from Marquez last Saturday night, and that means heads have to role. Read the rest of this entry »



title Pascal defeats Kuziemski; Bizier, Alvarez and Lemieux victorious

pascal342By Jason Kim: Former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal(27-2, 16 KO’s) bravely fought the last 8 rounds of his fight tonight against Aleksy Kuziemski (23-5, 7 KO’s) using only one arm after Pascal separated his left shoulder in the 4th round when he got his arm caught on the ring ropes while throwing a punch at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The injury didn’t really matter, because Pascal was able to beat the light hitting 35-year-old Kuziemski using just his right arm alone. The scoring of the fight was way off, however, because they had Pascal winning by the lopsided scores of 100-88, 98-90, 98-90. Read the rest of this entry »



title Weights: Khan-Molina, Wilder-Price, Santa Cruz-Guevara

005WilderandPriceIMG_0128(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) By Scott Gilfoid: Undefeated heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder (25-0, 25 KO’s) weighed in today for his fight on Saturday night against Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KO’s) at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California. The 6’7” Wilder weighed a light 223 pounds for the vacant WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title.

The fight is scheduled for only 10 rounds, but Wilder likely won’t need half of those rounds to get the 6’7” Price out of there. The weird thing about this fight is that both Wilder and Price look in incredible shape with nothing but pure muscle.

I’m not used to seeing two in shape heavyweights because much of the time heavyweights look so badly out of shape or just have weird looking physiques. These two fighters actually look like athletes. Read the rest of this entry »



title Pascal-Kuziemski, Lemieux- Ayrapetyan, Alvarez-McIntosh tonight in Montreal, Canada

By Allan Fox: Former WBC light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (26-2-1, 16 KO’s) will be fighting for the first time in a year a half when he takes on Aleksy Kuziemski (23-4, 7 KO’s) in a scheduled 10 round bout tonight at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Pascal has been out of action with injuries since losing his World Boxing Council 175 pound title to 47-year-old Bernard Hopkins last year in May.

Also on the card will be middleweight David Lemieux (27-2, 26 KO’s) in a slight step up in competition against Albert Ayrapetyan (20-3, 9 KO’s). Lemieux has been trying to turn his career around after suffering losses to Marco Antonio Rubio and Joachim Alcine last year. Read the rest of this entry »
