title Arena offers Sturm $25 Million to fight for them – News

sturm462439By Erik Schmidt: In an almost absurd offer, the promotional outfit Arena Box, headed by Ahmet Oner, has reportedly offered World Boxing Association middleweight champion Felix Sturm (33-2-1, 14 KO’s) $25 million for a six fight deal to fight for their company. What makes the number seem even more absurd is that Sturm, 30, isn’t considered to be the best middleweight in the division and would be extremely lucky if he were able to get through the six fight contract without getting beaten.

title News – Hatton vs. N’dou Still On

hatton-matthew3429By William Mackay: The Matthew Hatton (37-4-1, 14 KO’s) vs. Lovemore N’dou (47-11, 31 KO’s) bout appears to be back on for November 13th. It was thought that N’dou was injured in training and had to pull out of the fight. The bout will be taking place at the Fenton Manior Sports Complex, in Stoke. N’dou’s little known International boxing Organization welterweight title will be on the line for the fight, but more importantly, it will be a chance for the 28-year-old Hatton to break the top 15 in the world rankings if he can beat the 38-year-old N’dou.

title Haye vs. Valuev: Will David quiet his Critics if He beats Nikolay?

haye434658By Jason Kim: You have to wonder if British heavyweight David Haye will gain much respect if he’s able to beat World Boxing Association heavyweight champion Nikolay Valuev next month in their title bout in Berlin, Germany. Haye will have a great chance of taking Valuev’s title next month because Haye appears to have all the advantages in the fight except for size. Read the rest of this entry »

title The Weight Debate

pacquiao453434By Craig Martin: It’s the word that plays on every boxing fan’s mind now. So much has been said recently I figured I’d throw in my two cents. Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez are just a few of the names that apply to this issue. Floyd has received a lot of criticism for fighting the smaller man but mustn’t forget that Mayweather himself has risen through the weight divisions himself to win titles.

title Super Six: Shaken and Stirred!

kessler45By Nikolaj Ovesen: October 17th this year seems to be quite a bit more significant than it has been for many years. Why? Because it’s the start of a tournament, where six top boxers will go toe to toe with each other. On October 17th and November 21st, these six fighters will try to prove they are the best of the bunch. In the end there’ll be 3 matches in this first round of the tournament. These three matches have been analyzed countless times, by journalists, analysts, and so called boxing experts. I’m of course talking about the matches between Froch/Dirrell, Abraham/Taylor and Kessler/Ward. I’m not here to give my analysis on these bouts but my prediction to how these fights will end is: Froch KO6, Taylor UD12 and Kessler KO11. Read the rest of this entry »



title Jermain Taylor to Be Careful What he Eats and Drinks In Germany – News

taylor45547By Eric Thomas: Former World Boxing Council/World Boxing Organization middleweight champion Jermain Taylor is going to be extra careful while in Germany for his fight against German based super middleweight Arthur Abraham, according to the NWA Online. Taylor, 31, is going to eat out at a restaurant rather than eat at the hotel dining area that he’s staying at. Taylor will be drinking bottled water to make sure that nothing potentially could be slipped into his water that could make him sick. In addition, Taylor will have his gym in Germany checked for bugs or hidden cameras. Read the rest of this entry »



title Can anyone provide the antidote to a lack of competitiveness at heavyweight?

valuev1235By Steven Pink: Boxing needs a healthy heavyweight division. The brazenly declarative nature of this statement does nothing to detract from what is plainly a self-evident truism. For all the excellence of Pacquiao, Cotto, Pavlik, Cabellero and Vazquez it is the sport’s heftiest practitioners that most often captivate boxing’s more casual fans. Seasoned aficionados may prefer the punch filled shootouts of the lighter weight divisions, yet a heavyweight title fight remains, for many, the defining moment in the sporting calendar.

title The Mayweather Myth

mayweather445648By Jordan Stoddart: I thought I would write regarding the current and topical (and maybe frustrating issue to some) subject of Floyd Mayweather’s apparent refusal to fight Shane Mosley, and his (assumed) desire to fight the winner of Miguel Cotto and Manny Pacquiao. I want to cover a few points, as there are a few angles being missed by forum users and the general public. Whether that be plain ignorance or prejudice or whether it is just a way of stirring up ‘pre-mega-fight hype’; you cannot tell. All I know is, Floyd V Pac is the right decision for the Boxing fan, causal or purist. Read the rest of this entry »
