title McGuigan: Carl Frampton is the best fighter in the world!

frampton4455By Scott Gilfoid: It looks like IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton’s 5th round stoppage win over #1 IBF Chris Avalos (25-3, 19 KOs) last Saturday night may have gone to Frampton’s manager Barry McGuigan’s head, because he’s now talking about Frampton being the best fighter in the boxing world.

Presumably, McGuigan thinks that Frampton is even better than WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz and WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux, two fighters who many boxing fans see as the best in the division. Read the rest of this entry »

title Peter Quillin needs to show more ambition

quillin33 (2)By Jon Ward: “Hey Kid Chocolate, how does it feel to be the best middleweight on the planet?” tweeted Oscar De La Hoya (Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin’s promoter) in July of 2013. Gennady Golovkin, the WBA champion had just moved to 27-0 with a display of body punching that nearly broke challenger Matthew Macklin in half and Sergio Martinez, still undefeated at middleweight then was universally recognized as the real 160lb champion at that time.

Quillin’s 28-0 record and WBO title weren’t insignificant despite the poor quality of his opposition and although De La Hoya’s comments were clearly not unconnected to his vested interest in Quillin’s career, there were many who saw the popular Chicago fighter as a future force in one of boxing’s most competitive divisions.

title DeMarcus Corley to work as sparring partner for Floyd Mayweather Jr

floyd423By Chris Williams: Former IBF champion DeMarcus Corley (42-22-1, 25 KOs) will be working as one of WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr’s sparring partners to help him get ready for his May 2nd fight against Manny Pacquiao, according to The other sparring partners aren’t known as of now.

While Corley doesn’t have a fighting style that is similar to Pacquiao, he does have similar punching power. The difference is Pacquiao is faster and a little bit younger at 36. Corley is taller than Pacquiao at 5’7” compared to the 5’6” Pacquiao. Corley’s southpaw style should get Mayweather prepared well for Pacquiao’s southpaw stance. Read the rest of this entry »

title Atlas wants Golovkin to fight Quillin and Jacobs

1-01By Dan Ambrose: ESPN commentator Teddy Atlas went on a long rant last Friday night in talking about WBA Super World middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s recent 11th round stoppage win over an overmatched Martin Murray (29-2-1, 12 KOs) in their fight in Monte Carlo last week in their fight on February 21st.

The fight was supposed to have been a competitive one in the eyes of some boxing fans, but it turned out to be a one-sided affair with Golovkin chasing an unwilling Murray around the ring for 10 rounds before Golovkin finally caught up to Murray in the 11th and stopped him on his feet.

title The problems facing Kid Galahad

By Olly Campbell: British boxing rocked the world super bantamweight division last night in Belfast after Carl Frampton’s sensational home town defense of his IBF 122lb strap against brash American challenger, Chris Avalos.

After what can only be described as a ruthless and unforgiving clinic in which Frampton stopped his completely outclassed opponent, arguably the biggest domestic fight out there besides Kell Brook V Amir Khan inched ever closer to reality when WBA (reg) champion Scott Quigg entered the ring to be interviewed alongside Frampton and promoter Barry McGuigan.

title Malignaggi: Pacquiao will need to make adjustments to beat Mayweather

pac73729999By Chris Williams: Manny Pacquiao isn’t known for being the type of fighter who makes a lot of adjustments to outsmart his opponents. He’s basically the same fighter every time out, which is why he’s struggled so badly against guys like Juan Manuel Marquez.

For that reason former two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi thinks Pacquiao is going to be in deep, deep trouble on 5/2 when he gets inside the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr in their huge money mega-fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Read the rest of this entry »

title Pacquiao arrives in Los Angeles to begin training for Mayweather

By Chris Williams: WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) arrived last Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. in Los Angeles, California to begin his training at the Wildcard Gym to get ready for his May 2nd fight against WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr (47-0, 26 KOs).

title Tyson Fury: The way to beat Wladimir Klitschko is to fight from a southpaw stance

fury56By Scott Gilfoid: Despite #1 WBO challenger Tyson Fury (24-0, 18 KOs) never having fought anyone even remotely as talented as IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (63-3, 53 KOs) before in his career, Fury believes that he can beat the 6’6” Ukrainian Klitschko simply by switching his fighting stance to southpaw when the two fighters face each other in a fight that likely will take place next September. Fury is coming off of an 8th round stoppage win over Germany’s Christian Hammer last Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

Fury, 6’9”, likes to point out that the late 6’4” South African Corrie Sanders was a southpaw, and he was able to get Wladimir out of there in just two rounds in their fight in March of 2003. Read the rest of this entry »

title Chris Eubank Jr. shines despite the clinching, or because of it?

eubank333By Matthias Predonzan: Chris Eubank Jr. put together a really great performance against the Russian fighter Dmitry Chudinov at the O2 Arena in Greenwich. A performance that is now definitely moving Eubank Jr. at the top of the WBA middleweight ranking.

The fight was very intense, with Chudinov not able to adjust to Eubank Jr’s great boxing ability but opposing to him just a great pressure and an indomitable courage.

Eubank Jr. started the fight boxing well on the outside, using his jab and clinching Chudinov, at necessity, for the first 5 rounds. Read the rest of this entry »

title Guerrero vs. Thurman & Broner vs. Molina Jr next Saturday, March 7th

guerrero444By Dan Ambrose: WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) will be putting his unbeaten record on the line next Saturday night on March 7th in what could be the toughest fight of his career against former two division world champion Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (32-2-1, 18 KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Guerrero-Thurman fight will be televised on the inaugural Premier Boxing Champions card on NBC.

This is a fight where both guys have a lot to prove. Thurman needs to show that he can stay in the pocket and stand his ground rather than him running each time his opponent looks to throw a punch at him. Read the rest of this entry »
