Froch-Bute fights will make an eventual Ward bout that much bigger

Froch vs. Bute  lucian bute carl froch andre ward By Scott Gilfoid: WBA/WBC super middleweight champion Andre Ward (25-0, 13 KO’s) is doing the right thing in letting Carl Froch (28-2, 20 KO’s) and IBF super middleweight champion Lucian Bute (29-0, 24 KO’s) fight it out in a proposed two-fight tournament next year, as the winner of this fight can then meet up with Ward in an unofficial continuation of the Super Six tournament.

Cleverly not eager to fight Maccarinelli for some reason: Fear perhaps?

 nathan cleverly enzo maccarinelli By Scott Gilfoid: You can always smell fear coming from a fighter based on the excuse they make not to take on certain fighters. Perhaps we’re seeing a good example of that in WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (23-0, 11 KO’s) in his reluctance to take on the hard hitting 6’4” Enzo Maccarinelli (33-5, 26 KO’s) next. This is bad. Cleverly doesn’t want any part of knockout artist Maccarinelli. How funny. I guess that’s why Cleverly is the last British world champion. You’ve got to know you’re limitations.

Nathan Cleverly: The last British champion standing

 nathan cleverly By Scott Gilfoid: With all the other British world champions having been mowed down with the recent losses of David Haye and Amir Khan, only WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly (23-0, 11 KO’s) remains as the last Brit world champion, and he’s not likely to stay champion for long unless he keeps getting matched carefully.

Chisora: I’m going to send Vitali into retirement on February 18th

Chisora Klitschko Chisora vs. Klitschko  vitali klitschko derek chisora By Scott Gilfoid: If there’s anything that Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9 KO’s) is good for its hyping fight and giving good quotes. Other than that, Chisora is way, way over his head in his February 18th fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO’s) and it’s completely laughable to see Chisora talking boldly but without the power, size or skills to back it up.

Macklin to fight Sergio Martinez on March 17th

Macklin Martinez Macklin vs. Martinez  sergio martinez matthew macklin By Scott Gilfoid: Former WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (48-2-2, 27 KO’s) has failed in trying to line up a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao for his next fight in 2012. Instead Martinez has to settle for middleweight contender Matthew Macklin (28-3, 19 KOs) for his next fight on March 17th in New York. This about the same quality level as Martinez’s last fight against Darren Barker, if not worse. Read the rest of this entry »

Khan needs to find a better way to deal with Peterson’s pressure rather than shoving and pushing down on his head

Khan Peterson Khan vs. Peterson  lamont peterson amir khan By William Mackay: I find it hilarious that Amir Khan’s promoter Richard Schaefer thinks he’s got a good case to have Khan’s loss to Lamont Peterson overturned. The argument that Schaefer and Khan have for the fight being overturned is that Khan shouldn’t have been docked points for pushing off on Peterson, and that Peterson should have had points taken off for coming in with his head.
