title Frank Bruno remembered: 20 years ago heavyweight champion of the world!

By Rob Blakeman: Frank Bruno is not a remarkable man-but he did some remarkable things. He was not an exceptionally great fighter-but he was in some great fights! Throughout his career Frank had his share of ups and downs. His losses, he had 5 of them were followed inevitably by stinging criticism by his so called ‘beloved English fans’.

title Danny Garcia appears to say “I lost” to Lamont Peterson after controversial win

By Allan Fox: After winning a very, very questionable 12 round majority decision on Saturday night against IBF junior welterweight champ Lamont Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (30-0, 17 KOs) appeared to say “I lost” when the two fighters congratulated each other after the scores were ready.

title Mayweather not worried about Pacquiao’s high volume attack

By Chris Williams: It’s increasingly clear that Manny Pacquiao’s game plan for the Floyd Mayweather Jr fight is to throw a ton of punches and hope that Mayweather can’t defend against them all when they get inside the ring on May 2nd.

The high punch volume attack is an idea that Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach dreamed up six years ago when he first started talking about which game plan would work against Mayweather. Now six years later boxing fans will get a chance to see for themselves whether Roach knows what he’s talking about or if he’s merely deluded like he was when he was Oscar De La Hoya’s trainer for the Mayweather fight in 2007. Roach’s game plan didn’t work in that fight, and it’s quite possible that his game plan will come up empty for the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Read the rest of this entry »

title Roman Martinez defeats Orlando Salido, captures WBO 130lb title

By Jim Dower: Former two time WBO super featherweight champion Roman Martinez (29-2-2, 17 KOs) defeated WBO 130 pound champion Orlando Salido (42-13-2, 29 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Coliseo Jose Miguel Agrelot, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

title Garcia beats Peterson – You can’t win a fight running

garcia444By Bill Gabay: The game plan was good and the effort in the later rounds even better, but Lamont Peterson fell short in his match against Danny Garcia tonight on PBC on NBC losing a 12-round majority decision.

A win against the undefeated Garcia would have been impressive as the fighter from Philadelphia is well-coached (by his father-trainer), has great technical skills and possesses power in both hands. Garcia has beaten the likes of Lucas Matthyse, Zab Judah, Amir Khan and Erik Morales (twice). Read the rest of this entry »

title Garcia defeats Peterson; Lee – Quillin fight to 12 round draw

garcia67By Dan Ambrose: WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (30-0, 17 KOs) stays unbeaten tonight in defeating IBF 140 pound champion Lamont Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KOs) by an unimpressive 12 round majority decision in their catch-weight fight at 143 pounds on the Premier Boxing Champions on NBC at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York. The final judges’ scores were 114-114, 115-113, and 115-113.

Peterson really whipped Garcia in the last half of the fight, and he had Garcia backing up and looking beaten black and blue around the face. Garcia likely would have been knocked out if Peterson pressured him from the beginning of the fight instead of waiting so long before he started coming on in the second half.

title Warrington Decisions Tuberion – “We Are Leeds”

Review by Olly Campbell – After some of the injury and sickness pull outs that have plagued this card over recent weeks and days, there was only ever going to be one guarantee going into Eddie Hearn’s return to Leeds, and that was the reception Josh Warrington was to receive from the energetic and partisan crowd that have earned themselves a reputation as some of the most loyal in all of British boxing. For this writer in actual fact, there is only one crowd to rival Leeds at the moment for atmosphere, and that crowd is found in Belfast N.I and they cheer a man called Frampton.

Despite that, the hometown faithful in Leeds did not disappoint, as aided by ex Leeds Utd footballer turned Hollywood actor Vinnie Jones, they cheered their fighters and made enough noise to ably carry their top boy over the finish line. Read the rest of this entry »

title Lamont Peterson will lose IBF 140lb title tonight if Garcia beats him

By Dan Ambrose: IBF light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17 KOs) will have his IBF title on the line tonight in his non-title fight against WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) in their fight on NBC on the Premier Boxing Champions at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

title Purses: Garcia $1.5M, Peterson 1.2M, Lee 500k, Quillin $500k

garcia65By Dan Ambrose: WBA/WBC light welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17 KOs) will be the highest paid fighter in tonight’s card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The 27-year-old Garcia will be getting $1.5 million for his 143 pound catch-weight fight against IBF light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17 KOs).

That’s not bad money for a fight that has failed to catch the public’s imagination. Peterson will be getting $1.2 million. This may be as good as it gets for Peterson unless he can win, and keep moving his fight forward. Read the rest of this entry »

title Kell Brook says Brandon Rios could be next opponent after Gavin

chaves335567By Scott Gilfoid: Boxing fans are hoping that IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (34-0, 23 KOs) will finally step it up a level after he gets his voluntary title defense against #5 IBF Frankie Gavin (22-1, 13 KOs) out of the way on May 30th at the O2 Arena in London, UK. Fans want to see the 28-year-old Brook fight someone along the lines of Keith Thurman or Marcos Maidana in order to see if Brook even rates to be a belt holder in the 147 pound division, but that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Brook is talking about him possibly fighting Top Rank fighter Brandon Rios (33-2-1, 24 KOs) or 42-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) in the summer.

You can forget about Marquez facing Brook because I don’t see that happening. Marquez has had a knee problem since his fight against Mike Alvarado last year in May, and I don’t expect him to be ready to fight for a world title by the summer. Read the rest of this entry »
