Why Tyson/Jones Actually Matters

Why Tyson Jones Actually Matters

I’ve made no bones about this; I’m not going to watch this “exhibition” and I wouldn’t watch it if it were free. My small protest against a fight that I don’t think should take place, never mind have awarded the “Legends” belt, or whatever it’s being called, to the winner. (An aside here; if it is an “exhibition” as billed, how can there be a “winner” of this belt?) All of that having been said, I do understand the attraction …

Conor Benn Dominates Formella, Calls out Josh Kelly

skysports conor benn box 5179951

Many people thought that Sebastian Formella would be the toughest test of Conor Benn’s career and that he would have to jump through hurdles to come through him. Instead, Benn put on a career-best performance against the former IBO Welterweight champion arguably winning every round and matching if not bettering the performance of two-time world champion and top 5 welterweight Shawn Porter. The 24-year old Tony Simms coached 147-pounder easily dealt with his step up in opposition and proved he …

Terence Crawford vs. Kell Brook: Fight Preview

Once upon a time, there were two men who dominated the welterweight division and were considered by most pundits to be the two best pound for pound fighters in the sport. For years, fan salivated at the thought of the two of them climbing in the ring together to decide which one was really the best. Then in the Spring of 2015, after years of anticipation, Floyd Mayweather outpointed Manny Pacquiao with a boring display of defensive brilliance. The self-proclaimed …

Monzon vs Hagler: Who Would Win?

Monzon vs Hagler

Hagler vs Monzon: Who Wins? You all want to really talk about a fantasy fight. I can’t think of one that would have been closer than between two of the greatest Middleweights of all time; the Argentinian, Carlos “Escopeta” (Shotgun) Monzon versus Brockton, Massachusetts own, Marvelous Marvin Hagler. Oh my! What a fight this would have been. These two greats are always ranked in the top-5 Middleweights of all-time, but for me, they are 1,2. Actually, let me correct that, …

Reynoso states that starting from the 6th November ‘He is a free agent and ready to continue with his boxing career’. Team Alvarez will ‘announce the date, rival and place very soon’.

Is Floyd Mayweather Jr. The Greatest?

Is Floyd Mayweather The Greatest?

Floyd Mayweather – The Best Ever? Let me be clear; I’m no fan of Floyd Mayweather Jr. I don’t like what I’ve heard about him or from him as a man and I didn’t particularly care for his “defense-first” style of fighting. That having been said, Floyd Mayweather is the owner of a somewhat gaudy 50-0 record – okay, 49-0 if we subtract the abhorrent 50th fight against a non-boxer in his first-ever professional boxing match. At 49-0, we all …

Oleksandr Usyk vs. Derek Chisora

In October of 2019, both Oleksandr Usyk and Derek Chisora reminded the world of why they’ve become marquee names in the sport of boxing. On October 12th, Usyk made his heavyweight debut in Chicago by dominating Chazz Witherspoon throughout the course of seven rounds.

Teofimo Lopez should give Vasyl Lomachenko a rematch

Teofimo Lopez should give Vasyl Lomachenko a rematch

Teofimo Lopez would be doing himself a disservice to dodge Vasyl Lomachenko. It sounds like a contradiction to say a fighter could dodge an opponent he’s already faced but that’s precisely what critics would say if Teofimo Lopez avoids giving Lomachenko a rematch. However, before the argument can be made that Lomachenko does indeed deserve a second chance, Lopez should be praised for his performance in their initial bout. Coming into the fight, Lomachenko was praised for being “The Technician” …
