The Pros And Cons Of Gennady Golovkin Vs David Lemieux

Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux is booked for HBO pay-per-view on Oct. 17, and there’s a lot to like: These are two of the five best middleweights in the world, both are exciting quantities and it’s sure to end in a sensational knockout. But there are some cons: It’s on pay-per-view, it might not be competitive and it […]

Knockout Of The Year Candidate Alert: Claudio Marrero Vs Rico Ramos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_7yRyWrP5I It was a fairly dismal PBC card on NBCSN Saturday, but you might still want to check out this sweet TKO ASAP. After winning his first 20, Rico Ramos has now lost five of his last nine, none more savagely than against Claudio Marrero. Granted, the left hand in his gut from Guillermo Rigondeaux […]

Sergey Kovalev, Jean Pascal Win To Set Up Rematch

They got there in very different ways Saturday night on HBO, but Sergey Kovalev and Jean Pascal ended up in the victory circle and are now moving toward the light heavyweight rematch that seemed inevitable before the evening began. In the main event, Kovalev took on hopeless mandatory contender Nadjib Mohammedi and treated him like […]

Andre Ward Vs Gennady Golovkin And The Weight Divide

It’s possible to think of better unmade fights right now than Andre Ward vs Gennady Golovkin, but the list only goes a couple fingers, tops. The two have danced around each other for the last couple years, each side accusing the other of not really wanting to lambada. But at this precise moment, it’s easy […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Sergey Kovalev, B.J. Flores And Brian Viloria

https://youtu.be/9xdO0D6NdTs Absolutely nothing to do with this week’s boxing schedule, but if you only watch one piece of ridiculously contrived boxing hype this week, make it this video Ricardo Mayorga crashing Shane Mosley’s photoshoot. I already explained why I’m pumped for this terrible fight, but I feel that video justifies my wildest/lowest expectations. What are we […]

Weekend Afterthoughts On Nonito Donaire, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., More

When’s the last time we had any Weekend Afterthoughts around here? Maybe enough time to let neogrunge fashion become a thing. This past weekend had few U.S. televised fights of any note, with most of the most meaningful fights off TV. There was this knockout by Amir Imam of Fernando Angulo, which has the final […]

It’s Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr.’s Last Chance. But Not Really.

Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., who fights Saturday night on Showtime, (the network that has brought you all of your favorite fights this year like…) has pissed off a whole of people in short time. His attitude, apathetic at best, has turned many of his fans against him. He claimed to be rejuvenated for this fight, […]

The Dumpster Fire That Is Floyd Mayweather Vs Andre Berto

I guess we have to take seriously the notion that Floyd Mayweather may be facing Andre Berto for his next fight on CBS in September, which now looks like it could be a real thing and not just like a trolling ruse, as I speculated it had to be just a few weeks ago. On the […]

Carl Froch v George Groves - IBF & WBA World Super Middleweight Title Fight

Carl Froch, The Man Who Wasn’t There

If you ever wondered why Carl Froch was always trying to convince you how great he was — and chances are you rolled your eyes or gritted your teeth at least once during one of his arrogant rants — you need look no further than his whole career. No matter what he did, nobody really took him […]

What The Hell Is Going On With Keith Thurman?

Let’s get this out of the way first — Keith Thurman beat a very game, very tough Luis Collazo Saturday night on the debut of “Premier Boxing Champions” on ESPN. In fact, he became just the second man to stop the bloody mess that was Collazo after the Brooklyn quit on his stool before the […]

Mauricio Herrera Wins A Close One, For Once

“The flap is hanging over.” That’s what it took for Mauricio Herrera to finally win a close fight Saturday on HBO Latino, and less so than usual, he might not have deserved it. If anybody had any karmic justice coming to him, it was Herrera, a junior welterweight who arguably earned the title “champion” after his […]

Why Mosley Vs Mayorga Is Terrible But Also Really Good

By every objective measure, Shane Mosley vs Ricardo Mayorga II is a bad fight. Both men are 41. This is not good for their health, nor does it add anything to their legacies. Mayorga hasn’t won a meaningful fight in well over a decade and Mosley hasn’t fought it two years. So why am I so excited […]
