Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) By Allan Fox: Former WBA junior middleweight champion Sergio “Latin Snake” Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) suffered a fractured angle last Saturday night in getting stopped in the 2nd round by WBN World middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Mora’s left leg slid out from under him when he was trying to dodge a right hand from Jacobs in the 2nd round. While slipping to the canvas, Mora injured his ankle, which was later said to have been fractured.

The fight was then stopped by referee Gary Rosato with Jacobs getting a TKO in the 2nd, even though he technically didn’t land a punch. The fight should have been ruled a no contest instead of a knockout win for Jacobs. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Danny Garcia an option for Floyd Mayweather Jr?

EW5G6223(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) By Gerardo Granados: After dominating a past prime TV Analyst Paul Malignaggi the question left to answer is if Danny Garcia will face a real challenge at 147 on his next bout. It’s true that Garcia was able to stop Malignaggi on the ninth round and dominated the full fight but it is also true that boxing purist and hardcore fight fans cannot be surprised and only a few casual fans should be deluded to think that this was a significant victory for Garcia´s record.

Unarguably Garcia has a marketable name and has been fortunate to have influential promoters behind him so Danny with ease could get a shot at IBF welter belt holder Kell Brook or WBO welter belt holder Tim Bradley. Some Casual fans could believe Garcia is the second coming of Tito Trinidad or Wilfred Benitez but nothing is farther from the truth. Not the less Danny took a big check worth 1.2 million notes so it is obvious that smart matchmaking allows more than one boxer to face low risk high reward opposition without the need to prove that they are deserving of a million notes purse.

Donaire, 32, doesn’t care that he’d be fighting Quigg in his home country. Read the rest of this entry »



title Thurman: I have the skills to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr

thurman4By Dan Ambrose: WBA “regular” welterweight champion Keith Thurman (26-0, 22 KOs) said last Saturday night that he’s waiting and hoping to get a fight against WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26 KOs). Thurman believes he’s got the talent to beat the 38-year-old Mayweather, and he just wants a shot at fighting him.

Thurman thinks that Mayweather should answer the question of whether or not he wants to face him inside the ring because he’s ready to take the fight with him whenever he offers it to him. Thurman thinks he’s got the talent to defeat Mayweather when the time comes for the two of them to face each other. I don’t believe Thurman has anywhere near the same kind of talent that Mayweather has going for him. Read the rest of this entry »



title Ricky Burns: There are some big fights out there for me

burns200By Scott Gilfoid: Ricky Burns’ 5th round stoppage win over little known fighter Prince Ofotsu (15-5, 11 KOs) last Saturday night in Hull seems to have planted some ideas in Burns’ head. He now says he’s ready for a big fight. Burns is leaving it up to his promoter Eddie Hearn to find him that big fight for him to show to the boxing world that he’s not an over-the-hill despite having lost 3 out of his last 5 fights in the past two years.

The only wins that Burns has picked up in the last two years were against little known Ofotsu and Alexandre Lepelly. That’s not exactly world class opposition, is it? Read the rest of this entry »



title Danny Garcia interested in Thurman and Porter fights

EW5G6839(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) By Dan Ambrose: Fresh off of his 9th round stoppage win over high level journeyman Paulie Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) last Saturday night, former 140lb champion Danny Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) says he’s willing to face WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman or former IBF 147lb champ Shawn Porter next, as long as his adviser Al Haymon is interested in making one of those fights for him.

Garcia says he’s willing to do whatever Haymon wants to do. That could be a good thing or could be a bad thing if Haymon elects to continue to be very strategic in the types of fights he makes for Garcia. Read the rest of this entry »



title Joshua vs. Whyte: Will Hearn let this fight take place?

hearnBy Scott Gilfoid: With heavyweight Dillian Whyte’s impressive 1st round knockout win over Irineu Costa Junior (17-5, 15 KOs) last Saturday night in Hull, UK, you have to wonder whether Eddie Hearn, the promoter for unbeaten #2 WBC heavyweight Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs), will be having second thoughts about matching his prize against the unbeaten Whyte (15-0, 12 KOs) later this year like he’d originally planned.

title Malignaggi: I’m probably not going to fight again

5H6A1120(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) By Dan Ambrose: It looks like we’ve seen the last of former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) following his 9th round stoppage loss to former light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) tonight on Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Malignaggi offered very little resistance to the 27-year-old Garcia, and about all he did was move around the ring trying to avoid getting hit. Malignaggi said after the fight that he thinks that he won’t be fighting again. Read the rest of this entry »



title Daniel Jacobs says he’ll fight Peter Quillin next

EW5G4572(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) By Dan Ambrose: WBA “regular’ middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs (30-1, 27 KOs) got a cheap win tonight with his opponent 24-year-old Sergio “Latin Snake” Mora (28-4-2, 9 KOs) suffering a freakish leg injury in the 2nd round of his fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The referee Gary Rosato stopped the fight and ruled it a 2nd round knockout despite Mora not having been touched. Rather than give Mora a rematch to clear up the controversy, Jacobs says he’ll be facing former WBO 160lb champion Peter Quillin next in a battle of Brooklyn fighters.
