The man was too tall, too strong and too slick with the clinching in the main event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Wladimir Klitschko's style isn't too fan friendly, and he risks getting punished by a ref, but he did what he had to do, given his limitations, to get the decision over athletic but undersized Bryant Jennings on Saturday night in NYC.
The cards read: 116-111, 116-111, 118-109. Still the champ, big Wlad...
The crowd was 17,056, and Wlad went 144-545, to 110-376 to Jennings.
Jennings said prior that someone was...
HBO kicked off their Saturday slate with a welterweight square-off, pitting Sadam Ali, from Brooklyn, against Francisco Santana, from Cali. Ali impressed mightily, with a smart game plan, which featured high volume, and constant movement. A step-slow Santana couldn't often enough get a bead on the elusive Brooklyner, and the judges' scores indicated that: 97-93, 97-93, 100-90, Ali got the nod.
Smart and efficient boxing, this is a man with solid fundamentals who will just keep on winning fights.
The Golden Boy boxer Ali, entering with a...
IF HE CAN MAKE IT THERE – Anyone who believes Wladimir Klitschko is anything more than a 3 – 1 favorite over Bryant Jennings could be in for a rude awakening tonight. Odds favoring Klitschko by more than 10 -1 are ridiculous.
Jennings is a very live underdog, and not because of any specific stylistic points, physical properties or personal circumstances. The bottom line is that tonight’s contest may well serve to summarize Klitschko’s ultimate status in the game.
In that regard, Klitschko’s history over more than a decade shows...

DANIEL JACOBS KNOCKS OUT CALEB TRUAX IN A THRILLER
ROBERTO GARCIA SECURES WIN OVER JAMES STEVENSON
CHICAGO (April 25, 2015) - Premier boxing Champions took Chicago by storm Friday night with an exhilarating fight card featuring three captivating fights on Spike from the UIC Pavilion.
The televised opener showcased Roberto "La Amenaza" Garcia (37-3, 23 KOs) getting an eight-round unanimous decision win over James Stevenson (22-2, 15 KOs). The...
ONTARIO, CALIF.---Lightweight prospect Jose “Gato” Roman looked on paper to have a rough night against Guadalajara’s Martin Cardona. You can tear that paper up.
Before an enthusiastic crowd at the Doubletree Hotel that numbered more than 1,000, Roman (20-1-1, 14 KOs) chased and battered the wide-eyed innocent Cardona (18-5, 13 Kos), who looked like a deer about to be run over by a Mack truck on Friday’s Thompson Boxing Promotion fight card.
Cardona felt the force of Roman’s first blow and decided running was better than...
A release went out stating that middleweight Willie Monroe was "non complaint" with the WBC. Turns out he has a reason why..
First, the release:
The World Boxing Council hereby informs that boxer Willie Monroe Jr. who will fight Gennady Golovkin on May 16 at The Forum in Los Angeles has notified via his promoter Art Pelullo from Banner Promotions, that he will not comply with the WBC safety requirements. Consequently, he will not compete for the WBC championship in possession of Gennady Golovkin and in case he wins, he will not be the...
Freddie Roach won his seventh Trainer of the Year award and I put it to him point blank when we chatted on Friday: some folks out there saying you won so many, and others, like, say, some Mayweathers, don't win because it's a political thing. It's a popularity contest, non-winners say.
What about it Freddie? Is there something to that…or is that sour grapes whining?
"Hey, I try not to be an a-----e," he said. "Ask me a question and I give you the best answer I can, the most honest answer I can. I try to be real. And it is political?...
Most fans who you talk with emphatically believe there will be a rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao after they fight on May 2nd. And with so many feeling that way, you have to ask what does that tell you?
I believe it strongly conveys many boxing observers and aficionados feel regardless of who wins, the fight is going to go the distance and the outcome will most likely not be conclusive via the decision rendered. This shouldn't come as a shock to anyone.
If you examine their careers over the last six years or so, it’s...
He doesn't ever recalling admitting this, in all his years, amidst all the wars he's engaged in.
Freddie Roach, age 55, a fighter his whole life, who this evening receives his seventh BWAA Trainer of the Year award, in NYC, at the Boxing Writer's gala fete, told me that he admitted aloud that he was "hurt" when his charge fired a launch at him during mitt-work.
"The last three times doing mitts, Manny has almost knocked me out," said Roach on Friday, after telling me his older bro will stand in for him and accept the bauble at Capitale....
