title Dennis Andries vs. Jeff Harding I: No Running, No Hugging just Slugging

By Gerardo Granados: Back in June 24th of 1989 at the Convention Center, Atlantic City, USA; veteran WBC light heavyweight Dennis Andries W34(21)-L7-D2 faced a young hungry lion named Jeff Harding W14(1)-L0-D0 who was a replacement for Donny Lalonde who pulled out of the fight due religious beliefs just a few weeks before the bout.

title Khan: The only fight I’m interested in is Mayweather

Amir Khan vs Devon AlexanderBy Scott Gilfoid: Despite Floyd Mayweather Jr. making it clear to the media that the main two candidates for his next fight in September being Karim Mayfield and Andre Berto, that news still doesn’t seem to have sunk into the head of Amir Khan, who is still waiting patiently to get the call from Mayweather for the fight.

Khan says he’d be interested in fighting Manny Pacquiao, but he’s not heard anything from Top Rank about them wanting to fight him. Besides that, Pacquiao has months of rehab in front of him once his surgically repaired shoulder heals up, and he’s not going to be able to fight until at least the first quarter of 2016.

title Broner just needs to make small changes and he’ll be in HOF, says Mayweather

broner565656By Dan Ambrose: Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn’t abandoning ship on Adrien Broner (30-2, 22 KOs) after his loss to Shawn Porter (26-1-1, 16 KOs) over last weekend. Mayweather thinks that the 25-year-old Broner just needs to make some small changes to his fighting style for him to be in the Hall of Fame one of these days.

I don’t think Mayweather would have a lot of arguments from fans about Broner needing changes to his game. Where Mayweather might find some resistance is in how many changes that Broner needs. Some fans think Broner needs quite a bit, but Mayweather feels that Broner can improve dramatically with only small changed. Read the rest of this entry »



title Groves-Jack possible for August 22nd or September 12th, says Sauerland

groves6643By Scott Gilfoid: #1 WBC George Groves (21-2, 16 KOs) and WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack (19-1-1, 12 KOs) could be facing each other either on August 22nd or September 12th, according to Groves’ promoter Kalle Sauerland. They’re looking at both of those dates to decide on for his title shot against the 31-year-old Jack.

Groves will have to do some traveling though, because he’s not going to have his typical home country advantage for this one. Jack’s promoter made sure that the fight would take place in the United States, and that’s exactly where it’s going to take place. Read the rest of this entry »



title Deontay Wilder: Lucas Browne might be my next opponent

wilderBy Scott Gilfoid: WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (34-0, 33 KOs) says he’s interested in facing #6 WBC contender Lucas Browne (22-0, 19 KOs) because the trash talking the Australian fighter has been doing as of late has made it personal for him. Wilder would like nothing better than to get the 36-year-old Browne inside the ring so that he can test his power shots on his chin.

Browne is currently waiting on getting a crack at the WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev, and it’s doubtful that he would be willing to accept a far more dangerous fight against the 6’7” Wilder. Read the rest of this entry »



title Hatton worried about De La Hoya getting hurt against Golovkin

hatton555By Scott Gilfoid: Ricky Hatton doesn’t think it’s such a good idea for 42-year-old Oscar De La Hoya to face a slugger like WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) in his first fight of his potential comeback. De La Hoya has been saying over and over again that he only wants to fight the very best when or if he comes back, and he only wants Golovkin or Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Hatton, who is no stranger to ill-advised comebacks of his own, thinks that De La Hoya isn’t a real middleweight, and that he could be in trouble if he comes back to face a knockout artist like Golovkin. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin will have to wait on Lemieux fight

lemieux678By Allan Fox: If WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) is seriously interested in fighting newly crowned IBF middleweight champ David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs), then he’s going to need to wait a while, possibly a long while, before he gets a crack at him.

The 26-year-old Lemieux has a mandatory defense coming up against possibly 41-year-old Sam Soliman that he needs to get out of the way before he can start thinking about unification matches against the other champions at 160. The other thing that will likely hold back the Golovkin-Lemieux fight from taking place is Lemieux’s promoters at Golden Boy. Read the rest of this entry »



title Will Mayweather fight Pacquiao in 2016?

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny PacquiaoBy Chris Williams: The fans have heard the injury excuses from Manny Pacquiao, and they’re now waiting for him to finish healing up from his one-sided loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. last May. The time estimate that it’s going to take for Pacquiao to finish licking his war wounds is another nine to ten months.

If Pacquiao’s surgically repaired right shoulder does heal up and respond to rehabilitation, then he’s going to want to face Mayweather in a rematch. Mayweather is saying now that he won’t be giving the Filipino star a rematch, but he might change his mind and fight him again. Read the rest of this entry »



title Golovkin wants De La Hoya, fight would be at 154

golovkin64By Dan Ambrose: WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) says that he’ll take the fight with 42-year-old Oscar De La Hoya, and that he’ll take the fight “immediately” if the aging “Golden Boy” De La Hoya truly wants to fight him. However, for Golovkin to take the fight, he would have to agree to melt down to 154, because that’s the weight that De La Hoya wants the fight to take place at, according to ESPN.com.

Golovkin previously said that he’d come down to 154 for a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. but only against him. But it’s likely that Golovkin would be agreeable to facing De La Hoya at this weight as well, because it’s not as De La Hoya would be any kind of threat to beat him given his advanced age, the time off he’s had from the sport, and his poor showing before he retired in 2008.

title De La Hoya still considering comeback against “the very best”

dela11223317By Dan Ambrose: For the past several weeks, 42-year-old Oscar De La Hoya has been talking about wanting to restart his boxing career after a seven-year layoff. De La Hoya is now at the point where he says he’s 50-50 in his decision to come back or not.

What’s troubling though is he says he only wants to fight the best and specifically names Gennady Golovkin and Floyd Mayweather Jr. as the guys he wants to face. Considering that De La Hoya looked absolutely shot when he retired in 2008 and lost 3 out of his last 4 fights, it seems more like a comeback that would be done for the wrong reasons.
