RINGSIDE REPORT: DeGale Betters Dirrell in Boston, Grabs Title

Boxing is back in Boston and it's not a moment too soon. In the past ten years, there have been only two significant fight cards held in the city and both were at the TD Boston Garden. The UK's Ricky Hatton defeated New Yorker Luis Collazo for the WBA welterweight title in 2006 and then two years ago, a successful pro-am show was put on there as well and featured Danny O'Connor in the main event against Derek Silveira in a regional battle. Thanks to Al Haymon's revolutionary Premier Champions (PBC) platform, the sweet science was in full...

Eric Hunter and Taishan Score First Round KOs in SoCal

INDIO, CA.-Philadelphia’s Eric Hunter scored three knockdowns of El Paso’s Antonio Escalante in the first round and China’s giant Taishan followed suit with another first round knockout win on Friday at Fantasy Springs Casino. In a neutral site, it was Philadelphia’s Hunter (21-3, 11 Kos) who took control immediately and connected solidly with a leaping left hook to knock down Escalante (29-8, 20 Kos) quickly in the first round. The audience was stunned. Hunter wasted no time and walked in and delivered a right that floored...

The Heavyweight Bogeyman

When a heavyweight is defeated in the manner that undisputed heavyweight #1 Wladimir Klitschko defeated Alexander Povetkin at the end of 2013, he usually has the good grace to disappear. Ernie Terrell went 7-4 after Ali spent fifteen rounds turning his face into luncheon meat in their infamous “what’s my name!” encounter from 1967; behind the hideous beating he absorbed against a furious Rocky Marciano in their 1953 rematch, the excellent Roland LaStarza managed just 3-4 before hanging them up for good. It is physical,...

Povetkin Steamrolls Perez in Moscow

Alex Povetkin had his way with Mike Perez in Moscow on Friday, scoring a TKO1 win over the Cuban, who didn't look at all engaged from the start. Povetkin gets a crack at the belt now held by Deontay Wilder, and Wilder puts it up for grabs June 13, against Eric Molina in Alabama. A down the pipe right buzzed the lefty Perez in round one. His pawing jab didn't bother the Russian in the least, and he unloaded with power right away. When Perez backed up off the right, Povetkin slid forward, sensing a finishing pop. He feinted, feinted, hurled...

END OF AN ERA: Bye Teddy, Tess and Company--Friday Night Fights Bids Adieu

He's been there for the duration, Staten Island Teddy, telling truth, melting down, decibels up, throwing down, telling it like it was, to those who needed a dosage of some bitter medicine...the harsh truth. Crappy and inept and maybe corrupt judges, toothless commissions, even those within his own company who signed off on a subpar match that should have been shot-down, Teddy Atlas since 1998 on Friday Nights entertained fight fans, and tonight, he did color on his last FNF. In October of 1998, Bob Papa and Atlas called the bouts, and...

Boxing World is Buzzing in Boston: Official PBC on NBC Weights & Fighter Quotes

BOSTON — For a Beantown fight card that seemed to come straight out of left field, it was appropriate that during fight week for the televised PBC on NBC co-promotion between DiBella Entertainment and Murphy's Boxing, the final press conference was held on Thursday afternoon in the left field grandstand of Fenway Park, right by the world famous Green Monster. All the key participants were in attendance, including main eventers Andre "The Resurrected" Dirrell, 24-1, 16 KOs, and James "Chunky" DeGale, 20-1, 14 KOs. Both world-class super...

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...
