photo: toshiaki nishioka nonito donaireBy Chris Williams: IBF/WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (29-1, 18 KO’s) was quick to justify his pick of facing former WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-3, 24 KO’s) for his next fight on October 13th instead of the better known and arguably much more dangerous 122 pound champions Guillermo Rigondeaux and Abner Mares. Donaire said on his Facebook page “Going after the #1 in my division and no less.” Read the rest of this entry »

title Khan still not saying if he’ll be dumping Roach

photo: freddie roach amir khanBy William Mackay: Despite having said last week that he’d be making a decision in a week about whether to stay with his current trainer Freddie Roach or dump him and go with another big named opponent that can spend more time with him working on his many flaws in his game, most notably with his defensive lapses.

title Sergio Martinez can’t stand in one place for too long against Chavez Jr

photo: sergio martinez julio cesar chavez jrBy Dan Ambrose: Sergio Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KO’s) will need to stay on his bike against WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-0-1, 32 KO’s) next month on September 15th if he wants to win this one. It’s not that Chavez Jr. is too big of a puncher or too talented a fighter. The issue here is that Chavez Jr. will likely coming into the fight weighing over 180 pounds and will probably have a 15 pound weight advantage against the smaller Martinez.

title Audley has a chance of stopping David Price if he lets his hands go

photo: david price audley harrisonBy Scott Gilfoid: There’s no doubt that 40-year-old Audley Harrison (28-5, 21 KO’s) is a huge underdog going into his October 13th fight against unbeaten British heavyweight champion David Price (13-0, 11 KO’s) at the Echo Arena, in Liverpool, England. Price’s promoter has picked an old one for the 29-year-old Price to fight instead of a younger fighter with a lot more life in him. Read the rest of this entry »

title Malignaggi: Deontay Wilder shouldn’t rush his career

photo: paulie malignaggi deontay wilderBy Scott Gilfoid: WBA World welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi believes that unbeaten heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) is doing the right thing by taking things slowly with his career so that he can build up his skills to a high enough level so that he can have a better chance when he finally steps it up in the future against one of the world champions.

title Broner can do better than DeMarco for his next fight

photo: antonio demarco adrien bronerBy Scott Gilfoid: Unbeaten former WBO super featherweight Adrien Broner (24-0, 20 KO’s) has already called out WBC lightweight champion Antonio DeMarco (27-2-1, 20 KO’s) for his next fight, but that’s not much of a fight if you ask me. Broner is aiming too low if he wants to fight DeMarco, because this guy was already exposed badly by Edwin Valero two years ago in a 9th round stoppage and he’s done nothing much since then other than beating a fragile-chinned Jorge Linares.

photo: miguel cotto manny pacquiaoBy Chris Williams: I’m going to make a prediction and I’m dead certain that’s going to come true. Manny Pacquiao will not be fighting Miguel Cotto next on November 10th. Cotto won’t get the fight and will be bypassed for a lesser threat and a lighter puncher like Tim Bradley.

title Adamek faces dangerous puncher Travis Walker

By Allan Fox: 35-year-old Tomasz Adamek (46-2, 28 KO’s) is going to have to try and find a way to survive the huge shots from 6’4 1/2″ Travis Walker (39-7-1, 31 KO’s) on September 8th in Newark, New Jersey. Adamek hasn’t faced a puncher with as quite as much power as Walker has since he moved up to the heavyweight division in 2009. This could prove to be a more difficult test for Adamek than he might expect it to be. Read the rest of this entry »
