Khan Edges Out Algieri in Solid Scrap, in Brooklyn

Chris Algieri showed the world that he belonged on these big stages, as he was right there with Amir Khan in Brooklyn, on Saturday night. I thought I saw a fight that could have been scored a draw, as Algieri's hand speed, and reflexes, and ccordination, were on message. He landed power shot at Barclays Center, with both hands, and though Khan did too, the judges liked the Brit's work much more: he won by scores of 117-111, 117-111, 115-113. Khan was master of distance early; he used his feet to great advantage. But once Algieri got warmed...

Fortuna Beats Vasquez, via UD, in Brooklyn

Two sharp defenders engaged in a "pitchers duel" in the chief support bout to the Amir Khan-Chris Algieri main event, from Barclays Center, and on SPIKE. Javier Fortuna earned the W, according to the judges, over Bryan Vasquez, through 12 rounds of sweetly scientific warfare. Fortuna had the upper hand, by scores of 116-112, 117-111, 117-111. Fortuna went 237-637 to 174-710 for Vasquez, according to CompuBox. Fortuna, supposedly coming in with a significant power edge, didn't look the part, and it looked like he never buzzed Vasquez. But...

Marcus Browne Gets W Over Cornelius White

New Yorker Marcus Browne had the skill edge, big-time, over Cornelius White, and got the easy W on Saturday, in Brooklyn. The judges loved his work, to the tune of 98-92, 99-91 times two, at Barclays Center. Browne, celebrating the recent birth of a baby girl, went to 15-0 and the loser, from Houston, dropped to 21-4. In his last fight, he was stopped in round three by Sergey Kovalev. In the first, MB came out banging. The lefty popped two jabs, then a long right. He looked to be the boss there. In the second, Browne got a little more...

Heather Hardy Beats Bosques in BK

Local hero Heather Hardy, seeking and succeeding in building a national rep, took on Noemi Bosques at Barclays Center, on the Khan-Algieri undercard, and used her volume to snag the W in Brooklyn. Hardy got the judge love, via split decision, by scores of 77-75 (Hardy), 77-75 (Bosques), 79-73 (Hardy). The judge who saw it for Bosques plain got it wrong, in my opinion. In the first, Hardy came forward, mixed up her shots, looked to be first, dictate tone. In the second, Bosq moved, slid backwards, ate left hooks, ate jabs. In the third,...

Floyd Mayweather - Three Strikes and Still Not Out

We’re in this together all the way until our cable bill arrives. One hundred dead presidents to see what was supposed to be the fight to not only put boxing back on the sporting map, but to keep it there as well. It's only a matter of days until we hear just how many pay per view buys were registered to view last Saturday's long awaited matchup between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. The fight itself met nowhere near the expectations of well, millions of the paying public. Should last weekend's bout undoubtedly eclipse all previous...

Some Connected The Dots Before Mayweather-Pacquiao

I tried to sound the alarm bell in this space on the inevitable clash between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, at each stage, for literally years. Today everyone is all over the place saying that the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was a waste of time and money. Those saying such things are rightly upset because there's a chance Manny Pacquiao 57-6-2 (38) may have gone into the fight with an injured shoulder. They're also mad and disillusioned that the fight wasn't competitive and didn't come close to meeting its expectations. And to those...

Postfight Presser Report: Mayweather Is Boastful, Edgy, Defiant

At the postfight presser, held in the arena, with the principals in the ring, Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao talked about their clash at the MGM, and both touched on what comes next for each. Pacman said thanks for coming and that he did his best, "but my best wasn't good enough." The loser, via UD12, said he didn't want to make any alibis because of what he went through in camp. "I thought I won but I have to review it when I go back to my hotel to see what's happening," he said. "I respect Floyd Mayweather, he's fast, he's a good...

The Superfight Without a Heart

The question often asked in the buildup to Mayweather vs. Pacquiao was whether this richest of all prizefights could give a boost to boxing’s future by living up to the glories of its past. As May 2 approached, the anticipation reminded many of the 1980s, when the mega-million “superfights” got started with a series of bouts between the so-called Four Kings—Sugar Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran, Thomas Hearns, and Marvin Hagler. Leonard and Hearns fought each other in two cliffhangers eight years apart; Hearns vaporized Duran with a...
