This Saturday, two of boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters will square off when Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21KO’s) defends his IBF welterweight title against four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30KO’s) in Dallas, Texas. The fight, which will be broadcast by Fox Pay-Per-View, is highly anticipated by many fans and boxing media alike, but also criticized by others.
Can Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) really hang with the top welterweights? He has fought top and mid-level welterweights within the division but the results have not been very convincing. Last nights display against Yordenis Ugas (23-4, 11 KOs) was far from convincing and many had him losing the fight including the Fox TV broadcasters.
The last two weeks have been a roller coaster for boxing fans. Many thought they were going to get a possible Fight Of The Year candidate in May and now fans are left disappointed.
It has been nearly 20 years since there was an undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and that was Lennox Lews. Take a look at how we could see history repeat itself 20 years later as competition in the heavyweight division is currently white hot.
Currently, the light heavyweight division is stacked and easily one of the sport’s best. From the WBC champ, to the IBF champ, the division is filled with savages roaming around.
Currently the WBA “regular” champion, and recently signed to Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions, Manny Pacquiao has no shortage of fights on the table.
Last week, the WBO made Billy Joe Saunders, (26-0, 12 KOs) the mandatory challenger for Demetrius Andrade’s (27-0, 17 KOs) WBO Middleweight Title which is laughable, to say the least. What was the WBO thinking?
So where exactly does Golovkin’s place in boxing history currently stand? There is no doubt he is a top middleweight, but has he reached the ceiling that many had believed he would when he was knocking out solid, but not elite fighters in Geale, Stevens, and Lemieux?
With these two performances, what did we learn about Jermell and Jermall Charlo to wrap up 2018?
Charlo is hoping to make a big statement this weekend and prove to the boxing world that he is ready for all the big names he’s been calling out in the middleweight division, most notably Canelo Alvarez.
Tonight HBO Boxing will broadcast its final boxing event ever at Madison Square Garden. After 45 years of broadcasting some of boxing’s most iconic fights and fighters, HBO had decided to get out of the boxing business. From George Foreman’s upset of Joe Frazier to Buster Douglas’ shocking knockout of Mike Tyson, HBO has broadcast many memorable moments in boxing history.

Forget Anthony Joshua, forget Gennady Golovkin…Errol Spence is becoming the most feared man in boxing these days. The young assassin is growing his fanbase, beating credible opponents and doing it in dominant fashion. Everybody in […]
Tonight’s co-main event features undefeated Robert Easter Jr. (20-0, 14 KOs) versus once-beaten former world champion Javier Fortuna (33-1-1, 23 KOs) at 135 pounds. What was supposed to be a fight for Robert Easter’s IBF World Title, is no longer the case as Fortuna failed to make the 135 pound weight limit.
Whats going on with Amir Khan these days? Once an contender for top pound for pound fighter, but now irrelevant and more of a drama show queen. Amir Khan was once setup for super stardom. […]
