Danny Garcia Stops Malinaggi in a One-Sided PBC Affair

In his welterweight debut, Danny Garcia (31-0, 18 KOs) scored a 9th round TKO victory over Paulie Malinaggi (33-7, 7 KOs) in Brooklyn tonight. Promoted by the PBC and ESPN as a battle of Philly vs. Brooklyn, Danny Garcia methodically wore down the Bronx’s beloved son in a highly disciplined performance. Neither fighter landed with great accuracy, but Garcia’s blows were almost always impactful whereas the light-punching Malinaggi could not land anything with effect against his opponent. Garcia had rightly taken a fair amount of...

Daniel Jacobs Defeats Sergio Mora by 2nd Round TKO as Mora Suffers Leg Injury

On the undercard of ESPN’s PBC broadcast tonight in Brooklyn, Daniel Jacobs(30-1, 27 KOs) was awarded a TKO victory over former light middleweight champion, Sergio Mora (28-3-2, 9 KOs), when Mora’s right leg folded under him after going down under a barrage of punches from Jacobs in the 2nd. Mora got up off the canvas, but was limping considerably and was unable to continue the fight for Jacobs’ WBA middleweight title. The opening round was sleepy until Jacobs landed a massive right hand with 1:22 remaining in the round, sending Mora...

Prichard Colon knocks out Michael Finney in the 2nd on PBC’s ESPN Showcase

In a scheduled 6 rounder, Cuban prospect, Prichard Colon (15-0, 11 KOs) made quick work of American, Michael Finney(12-4-1, 10 KOs) in a junior Middleweight tilt. The first round was fairly pedestrian, but Colon opened up in the second and floored Finney with a huge right hook followed by multiple combinations. Finney beat the count, but was out on his feet with 1:37 remaining in the round when the fight was correctly stopped. Finney was 0-3-1 in his last four fights, so it’s hard to gauge Colon’s performance to a degree, but you...

Manuel Avila Seeks to Reclaim Northern California Glory

Manuel Avila has a short term goal on his mind. “Everybody from down here wants to put Northern California back on the map,” Avila said. “We want to be like Southern California.” Avila (17-0, 7 Kos) takes a big step toward the big time when he faces Cuban-born Yoandris Salinas (21-1-2, 14 Kos) on Saturday Aug. 8, at Fantasy Springs Casino. They battle for the vacant interim NABF super bantamweight title. HBO Latino will televise the Golden Boy Promotions card. Northern California for over a decade boasted some of the best...

Jimmy Slattery: The Forgotten Light-Heavyweight

Boxing is regarded as the cruelest sport for how often it turns a blind eye to the punishment a fighter endures inside the squared circle and how little it remunerates a fighter once he leaves the ring. Veteran journalist based in New York City and author of two previous nonfiction books, Rich Blake, thankfully does not continue in the bloodletting tradition that the boxing game seems to prefer. Instead, he tells the tale of largely looked-over light-heavyweight, Jimmy Slattery. In Slats: The Legend & Life of Jimmy Slattery (No Frills...

Garcia-Malinaggi Has The Makings Of An Interesting Scrap

Call it Philly versus New York or New York versus Philly. It's a storied history between the two cities less than a mere 100 miles apart. It's the Giants vs. Eagles...Flyers vs. Rangers...and Yankees/Mets vs. Phillies. In fact Philly's favorite adopted son "Smokin" Joe Frazier considered Madison Square Garden home. Most don't know that Joe actually resided in New York before he settled in Philadelphia. This weekend at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York the rivalry gets renewed via welterweight fighters Danny Garcia 30-0 (17) of...

Bryant Jennings Adds New Trainer To the Mix

He surpassed the expectations of many, but not himself, when he fought many minutes against Wladimir Klitschko on even terms. But even terms are not what Bryant Jennings is after...so the Philly boxer is tweaking his game, the learning side. He's in Florida as you read this, working alongside ace tutor John David Jackson, who has emerged as one of the top small handful of trainers in the boxing sphere the last couple years. The 19-1 heavyweight told me he did a workout last month with JDJ, who helms Sergey Kovalev, the terminator type who...

This Could Be Last Call For Paul Malignaggi...Or His Best Pro Win

There is more interest in this one than maybe would ordinarily be the case, being that Danny Garcia hasn't looked all that thrilling in awhile. But what makes the Garcia vs. Paul Malignaggi fight a sort of must watch, in my book, is the possibility that yes, this could be last call for Paulie. No, not indulging in any hyping up hyberbole here-- guy debuted 14 years ago, he has some mileage on him, and while his pride is fierce, the wheels ain't what they were, and the fists, they haven't been hammers ever, really, and less so since they...

The Lion Killing Dentist Story Prompts A Lion Tale From George Foreman

I think the old adage "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" should be updated for this new information age. There is NOTHING nowhere like the fury unleashed by Twitter when they are in scorn mode... Yeah, when a bee starts ricocheting inside the bonnet of social media, the sting can be quite the hurricane of pain. Exhibit A, the latest one...that deebag dentist who showed off his superiority by shooting a defenseless lion. You probably heard or saw this story... Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer, fighting off a sagging spirit stemming...
