Takeaways From Mohammedi Trainer and Co-Manager

No, it didn't go to plan. I mean, it sort of did, they knew the kid was in super tough. But his trainer, and his co-manager thought and hoped that Frenchman Nadjib Mohammedi, if he left the ring Saturday night as the loser after fighting Sergey Kovalev, his rep would be burnished, not diminished. As it was, after getting knocked out in round three, Mohammedi basically joins a list of fellas who found out that the Krusher's nickname is applicable and he'll need to get another opportunity to make the impact he hopes he would. Cedric Agnew,...

He's Still Don King

I had dinner with Don King last Thursday night at RedFarm, a trendy Chinese restaurant on the upper west side of Manhattan. King no longer stands astride boxing like a Colossus. In mid-July, Sports Illustrated ran an article about him that was relegated to its annual “where are they now” issue. He’ll be 84 years old on August 20. But King is still in the game. He promotes several fighters, the most promising of whom is Amir Imam. He has rebounded nicely from recent health issues. His weight is down from 285 pounds to a healthier 220....

Better UK 168er, Froch or Calzaghe?

With the recent retirement of British super middleweight Carl Froch, one topic that has received much attention is his standing among former British greats in a division that has produced some of the finest ever champions from these shores. Below I analyse the respective careers of arguably the top two British 168lb legends and give my take on who stands higher in the all-time pantheon. Joe Calzaghe Overview: After bursting on to the world scene with an impressive first title victory, long periods of frustration followed until “The...

AVILA RINGSIDE: Krusher Retains Titles by KO in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS-Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev dominated France’s Nadjib Mohammedi from the opening bell and ended it with a flourish to win by knockout and keep three light heavyweight world titles on Saturday. In the boxing capital of the world, WBA, IBF and WBO champion Kovalev (28-0-1, 25 Kos) displayed his flashing fists and tremendous power in front of a Las Vegas crowd at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Mohammedi (38-4, 23 Kos) didn’t seem to stand a chance of winning at all. Kovalev may be known for his power but let Mohammedi know...

Kovalev Smashes Overmatched Mohammedi in 3

Sergey Kovalev kept on doing what he does, stalking, battering, stopping foes, in the main event from Mandalay Bay on Saturday night, and on HBO. This time it was Frenchman Nadjib Mohammedi who ate the leather buffet. He went down in the second and then even harder in the third. A right and left follow had Mo on the mat, unable to rise. He was pawing his left eye and wanted no more of that punishment. Light heavy champ Kovalev, from Russia, living in CA, was 27-0 (24 Kos) entering. Mo, from France, was 39-3 (24 Kos) entering. The end came...

Underdog Gonzalez Upsets Pascal, On My Card, But Not the Judges'

Jean Pascal stepped up, and took on a younger gun, even though he could have played it safe, taken a stay busy fight, and wait for a rematch with Sergey Kovalev. The gamble didn't pay off, almost, but it did, because it was scored 97-93 times three, for Pascal. I thought the judges were in error. "I can't believe it," the announcers said...but I can...we see it every week in this sphere, crappy cards from people wearing smudged glasses or coming in with pre-set cards. Pascal went 154-397 for 163-632 for Yuni in punches. Gonzo, a 16-0...

LA.’s Danny Roman Grabs NABF Super Bantam Title

ONTARIO, CALIF.-Danny Roman captured the NABF super bantamweight title by using his height against Mexico’s Daniel Noriega on Friday night. Roman (15-2-1, 5 Kos) used his reach and combination punching before a crowd of more than 1,200 at the Doubletree Hotel to defeat Torreon, Mexico’s Noriega (27-10-1). The Thompson Boxing Promotions fight was not televised. It was not an easy fight for Roman, who constantly had Noriega pressing forward in every round. The shorter Mexican fighter knew how to keep the pressure on and was never hurt by...
