Toney, now 40, was originally scheduled heavyweight contender Tony Thompson, but he had to cancel, because of a case of acute bronchitis that prevented him from making the fight.

title Pacman Inspires Rejuvenated Khan

By Jamie Parker: A rejuvenated Amir Khan (19-1, 15 KOs) claimed the vacant WBA International Lightweight Championship after a 2nd round stoppage over Oisin Fagan (22-6, 13 KOs) at London’s ExCel Arena.

title Mayweather Interested in Pacquiao Bout?

By Eric Thomas: In the latest boxing news, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is reportedly interested in ending his year-long retirement for a bout against Manny Pacquiao. According to an article in the Grand Rapids Press, Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KOs) is interested in facing Pacquiao next. If this turns out to be true and not some silly rumor, then Mayweather Jr. would be stepping into a fight that would likely be as huge a fight as Pacquiao’s recent fight with Oscar De La Hoya last Saturday night.

title Is De La Hoya a Quitter?

By Michael Lieberman: The sight of seeing Oscar De La Hoya quit on his stool after the 8th round was frankly sickening for me to see. A once great fighter reduced to quitting on his stool against a fighter six inches shorter than him and not nearly in his class as far as boxing skills go. If De La Hoya was a true warrior, he would have gone out on his shield, throwing punches until the end instead of just quitting like that. That probably didn’t win him many fans.

title Klitschko In Risky Fight Against Rahman

By Eric Thomas: IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (51-3, 45 KOs) will be taking on arguably his toughest opponent in years on Saturday night against former IBF/WBC heavyweight champion Hasim Rahman (45-6-2, 36 KOs) in a 12-round title bout at SAP-Arena, Mannheim, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Rahman, 36, isn’t being given much of a chance by many boxing experts and fans alike, but I think he’s a real live underdog due to his powerful right hand and has a real chance of stopping Wladimir if he can connect with something big.

title Calzaghe To Retire?

By Scott Gilfoid: I should have expected it, Joe Calzaghe is hinting at retirement rather than moving forward against the much more formidable opponents like Chad Dawson, Jermain Taylor or a rematch with Bernard Hopkins. “I will make my final decision after the New Year but I will probably retire,” Calzaghe said to BBC Sport yesterday. Some people had thought that he would stick it out and continue fighting for a little while longer, but I figured he would do this. Read the rest of this entry »



title De La Hoya Could Beat Pacquiao

By Manuel Perez: I’m not taking anything away from Oscar De La Hoya for his performance on Saturday night against Manny Pacquiao, he did the best he could given his poor physical condition that he came into the fight on that night. At best, he may have been 40% of his optimal level after starving himself and over-training for the fight to the point where it left him weak, tired and almost entirely useless after only the 2nd round of the fight.

title Floyd Mayweather vs. The Winner of ‘The Hitman’ vs ‘Pac Man’

By Simon Hirst: Manny Pacquaio produced one of the finest displays of his career in beating ‘the bigger man’ in Oscar De La Hoya. His speed, the way key and the tactics were perfect in a fight that surely has ended ‘The Golden Boy’s career. It proved two things, firstly that Pacquaio is both the best pound for pound fighter in the world right now and secondly, that De La Hoya cannot fight at the very highest anymore.

title Where Does Manny Pacquiao Stand With The All Time Greats?

By Adam McGarry: This is always hard, to predict where someone will end up in the all-time pound for pound list. Not just because of the fact his career isn’t finished, but you never ever know what’s around the corner for any fighter. With Manny fighting from flyweight to welterweight there are so many things to consider, but I’d like to try and break it down and see if we can find a place for him in history. There’s a few categories to analyze and go through with a fine tooth comb, but for the sake of it we’ll try. Read the rest of this entry »



title Jacobs Smashes Lares; Lopez Stops Medina

By Jim Dower: In an impressive display of power punching, undefeated super middleweight prospect Daniel Jacobs (13-0, 12 KOs) destroyed Victor Lares (14-4, 3 KOs) in the second round of a scheduled eight-round bout at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jacobs, 21, an amateur star and possibly a future champion in the super middleweight or middleweight divisions, was too much for an out-gunned Lares, knocking him down with a right hand in the second round. Lares quickly got to his feet but Jay Nady stopped the fight anyway at 2:44 of the round because Lares looked too hurt to continue fighting. Read the rest of this entry »
