angulo22211By David Lahr: Light middleweight Alfredo Angulo (15-0, 12 KOs) opened some eyes on Saturday night in the process of taking out veteran Cosme Rivera in the 5th at the BankAtlantic Center, in Sunrise, Florida. Angulo showed crushing power in hurting Rivera on a number of occasions in rounds three and five, eventually battering him until the fight was stopped in the 5th. The referee Telis Assimenios waited way too long before stepping in and stopping the fight, letting poor Rivera get hit with far too many shots if you ask me. Read the rest of this entry »

fury3523535By Jim Dower: Tyson Fury returns to the ring on February 28th against journeyman Daniel Peret (15-20, 6 KOs) at the Norwich Showground, Norwich, in Norfolk. Fury will likely have little trouble with the 35-year-old Peret, who’s coming into this fight with five losses out of his last seven fights.

title Cintron: Does He Have Problems Handling Pressure?

cintron3222By Scott Gilfoid: Once again, Kermit Cintron (30-2-1, 27 KOs) blows a fight that he easily has the skills to win with his latest flub up, a 12-round draw with Sergio Martinez this past weekend. I don’t know what Cintron’s problem is but whatever it is, I thinking it’s beyond fixing at this point. It was sickening to watch him crumble under the slightest bit of pressure from Martinez, backing off and fighting defensively for much of the fight. Read the rest of this entry »
