title Has Haye Gotten Inside Wladimir’s Head?

haye3423368By Sean McDaniel: Heavyweight David Haye arrived at today’s news conference in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, wearing a t-shirt with a photo of Wladimir Klitschko and Vitali’s cut off heads in each of Haye’s hands. Wladimir didn’t take the t-shirt gag too well, getting outraged over it and heatedly said “That is terrible. It’s unspeakable, it’s impudent…I want to knock him out in the 1st round.” Haye seemed to be gladdened by Wladimir’s reaction, remarking “When I beat him to bits, he will retire. Vitali will throw in the towel to save you, he will pick you off the floor.” Read the rest of this entry »



title Ward vs. Miranda on May 16th; Berto vs. Urango – News

miranda44646438By Jim Dower: Unbeaten Andre Ward (18-0, 12 KOs) will have a huge home field advantage on May 16th against Colombian Edison Miranda (32-3, 28 KOs) when he faces him at the Oracle Arena, in Oakland, California. Ward, 25, is making a monumental jump up in competition by choosing the powerful Miranda, 28, to fight. Ranked #w in the WBO #2 in the WBC, Ward hardly needs to face a fighter as dangerous as Miranda. Read the rest of this entry »



title Haye-Klitschko: Wladimir Furious Over T-Shirt – News

wladimir2324422By Erik Schmidt: Once again, David Haye (22-1, 21 KOs) was able to push Wladimir Klitschko’s (52-3, 46 KOs) buttons, this time by wearing a t-shirt showing the decapitated heads of Wladimir and his brother Vitali at a press conference at the Veltins Arena, Gelsenkirchen, Germany. The t-shirt angered Wladimir, 33, who then promised to make Haye pay for his actions by knocking him out on June 20th. For his part, Haye looked positively overjoyed with Wladimir’s reaction as if David had planned on this happening ahead of time. Read the rest of this entry »



title Will Hopkins Fight Paul Williams?

williams452353By Chris Williams: Paul Williams (37-1, 27 KOs) is reportedly interested in fighting former middleweight champion Bernard Hopkins (49-5-1, 32 KOs). Hopkins, 44, doesn’t have any fights on schedule right at this minute, so it will be interesting to see if he bites at the chance to fight WBO light middleweight champion Williams. Hopkins has said that he doesn’t want to fight the younger talents in the sport, because he doesn’t want to take away the future stars in boxing. Read the rest of this entry »



title Is Pacquiao The Next Golden Boy? No, Because Manny’s Going to Lose to Hatton

pac35668By Manuel Perez: If people think that Manny Pacquiao (48-3-2, 36 KOs) is going to be the next “Golden Boy,” then I say they’re going to be sadly disappointed when Pacquiao is knocked out by Ricky Hatton (45-1, 32 KOs) on May 2nd, at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pacquiao, 30, isn’t the one that should be facing Hatton in this fight, it should be Juan Manuel Marquez, because he was defeated by an incredibly 12-round questionable decision by Pacquiao a year ago in March 2008.

title Pavlik-Mora: Why Is This PPV?

pavlik645259By Dave Lahr: WBC/WBO middleweight Kelly Pavlik (35-1, 31 KOs) will be making his third defense of his titles against Sergio Mora (21-1-1, 5 KOs) on June 27th, at the Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Rather than show the fight on regular Showtime or ESPN, the fight will be a PPV bout, meaning that boxing fans will have to pay big bucks to see this fight. Frankly, I don’t see Pavlik as being a PPV worthy star at this point in his career, especially now that he’s been soundly beaten by Bernard Hopkins in October 2008. That loss took a lot of wind out of the sails of Pavlik’s career, which at that point was just building up a little excitement. Read the rest of this entry »



title De La Hoya: “I Was Getting Beat Up In Sparring;” Witter Predicts Kotelnik Knockout over Khan – News

dela433434By Sean McDaniel: Oscar De La Hoya (39-6, 30 KOs) said that he won’t be making a comeback after retiring yesterday from boxing, saying “I’m 100 percent convinced that I won’t come back.” De La Hoya further went on to mention that he’s made a lot of money in the ring and doesn’t need to make a comeback. De La Hoya went on to point out that he first suspected that he didn’t have what it takes anymore while fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr. in December 2007, a fight in which De La Hoya led in the first six rounds but then faded badly in the last six rounds and ended up losing by a 12-round split decision.

There has been much discussion over the last few weeks on who has the edge in this one. Some thinking that Froch cannot handle a world class operator such as Taylor & some believing Froch will be too tough for the American. Here I will give you my take on how I see things going & the ways each man can win this one. Read the rest of this entry »
