title Jarrett Hurd: Jermell Charlo is getting stopped if he fights me like he did Trout

By Allan Fox: IBF/WBA junior middleweight champion Jarrett Hurd (22-0, 15 KOs) saw nothing but vulnerability from WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell ‘Iron Man’ Charlo (31-0, 15 KOs) last Saturday night in the way that he had to labor hard to defeat former junior middleweight champion Austin Trout (31-5, 17 KOs) by a 12 round majority decision last Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The deciding factor in the fight was Charlo’s two knockdowns of Trout in rounds 3 and 9. If not for that, he likely would have come up empty and ended up losing the contest.

By Gianluca Di Caro: On Saturday night, whilst most British boxing fans were either at the Manchester Arena or watching BT Sport as Tyson Fury made his long awaited return to the ring, a large number of local boxing fans still made the pilgrimage to the Jubilee Sports Bank in Liverpool for local promoter Kyle Gallagher’s latest offering.

By Trevor McIntyre: Josh Kelly (6-0, 4 KOs) will be fighting Commonwealth welterweight champion Kris George (14-1, 8 KOs) this Saturday night in a 12 round fight on June 16 at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle. The 24-year-old 2016 Olympian Kelly is coming off of a 10 round unanimous decision victory over 35-year-old former junior middleweight champion Carlos Molina on March 31 on the undercard of IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua’s unification fight against WBO champion Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

title Tyson Fury fights on August 18 at Windsor Park in Belfast

By Scott Gilfoid: Following his win over Sefer Seferi last Saturday night, former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) expects to be back inside the ring on August 19 at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Fury’s fight against former cruiserweight Seferi (23-2, 21 KOs) looked look like an exhibition fight from start to finish at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. In hindsight, the 29-year-old Fury would have been better off calling it an exhibition match, as he would have taken far less criticism for how he fought. Read the rest of this entry »



title Terence Crawford believes Errol Spence Jr. fight can happen

By Chris Williams: Fresh off his victory over WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn, Terence Crawford believes that a fight against IBF champion Errol Spence Jr. is possible if it makes good business sense for the two of them, which will require agreement between his promoters at Top Rank, and Spence’s manager Al Haymon.

title Abel Sanchez optimistic Canelo-Golovkin rematch gets done

By Sean Jones: Trainer Abel Sanchez is sounding optimistic that the Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin rematch will get done now that the promoters for the two fighters are back in negotiations. Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) has backed off his 50-50 purse split demand, and he’s now willing to take a 55-45 split. Sanchez feels that’s a good sign that GGG’s promoter Tom Loeffler is speaking with Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez and CEO Oscar De La Hoya. Read the rest of this entry »



title Terence Crawford could defend WBO welterweight title against Jose Benavidez

By Chris Williams: Top Rank is reportedly considering having Terence Crawford make his first defense of his WBO welterweight title against Jose Benavidez following his win over Jeff Horn last Saturday. Benavidez (27-0, 18 KOs) is in the same Top Rank stable as Crawford, which makes the fight between them an obvious choice. Benavidez, 26, is the older brother of WBC super middleweight champion David Benavidez, but thus far he’s not made the same type of impact with his career. Read the rest of this entry »



title Daniel Roman Q&A: ‘I’m ready to fight anybody’

By Ian Aldous: He certainly didn’t do it the easy way. Daniel Roman (24-2-1) did something that few fighters from the West do – travel to Japan and claim a world championship. Not only that, but he travelled back there to defend it. Now he’s back fighting in the U.S when he defends his WBA super-bantamweight world title against Moises Flores (25-0) on Saturday night at the Ford Center at The Star, Frisco, Texas, live on Showtime. Last week, he took some time to talk with me over the phone about his time in Japan and Saturday’s fight. Read the rest of this entry »



title Jarrett Hurd vs. Jermell Charlo being planned for next fight

By Dan Ambrose: WBC junior middleweight champion Jermell Charlo beat Austin Trout last Saturday night to get his voluntary defense out of the way, and he’ll now be fighting IBF/WBA 154lb champion Jarrett Hurd (22-0, 15 KOs) next. Richard Schaefer reportedly announced at the post-fight press conference last Saturday that adviser Al Haymon will be working on making the Hurd-Charlo fight for a unification fight between them.
