Friday Night Sees The Return Of Welterweight Kermit Cintron

It has been more than two years since Kermit Cintron (35-5-2) entered the ring to compete, but this coming Friday, May 6th Cintron laces up the gloves once again as he faces veteran Eduardo Flores (23-20-3) in a 6 round bout on Marshall Kauffman's show at the 2300 Arena. Cintron is 36 years old now, but he is no stranger to the topshelf of boxing's welterweight division. Back in October of 2006 he grabbed the IBF's world title and he succesfully defended the belt twice before losing it to Antonio Margarito in April of 2008. Cintron's last...

Showtime Signs Anthony Joshua: Another Score for England in the New World Order of Boxing

By BERNARD FERNANDEZ Times clearly have changed for British heavyweights over these past 23-plus years. For American heavyweights, too, it would seem. Wednesday’s announcement that Showtime had signed England’s recently crowned IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua to a multi-fight contract is the latest indication that the British Empire, or at least its boxing subdivision, has risen to its loftiest level since … well, maybe ever. But Sir Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Physics holds that for every action there is an equal and...

Amir Khan Takes Succor from the Biggest Upset in the History of Sports

The Leicester City Foxes clinched the 20-team Premier League title with games to spare when Tottenham and Chelsea played to a 2-2 draw on Monday, May 2. It would be no exaggeration to say that this was the biggest upset in any sport, ever. At the start of the season, UK bookmakers were offering odds of 5,000 to 1 against Leicester City. At Ladbrokes, England’s biggest betting chain, the largest bet, $72, returned $106,000. All told, British bookmakers lost $25 million on future book wagers according to a story in the London...

By Springs Toledo Back when America got up early to get ahead and men were men, “going west” put hair on your chest. The unforgiving sun, the desolate expanse, the chance to mix it up with others who painted their faces where you rolled up your sleeves — going west in the nineteenth century was akin to joining the service in the twentieth. In the twenty-first, young Americans tend to stay home. They shy away from mixing it up lest they get hurt, or sued. Those who do leave home go to universities where old-school values are...

Floyd Mayweather's Pugilistic Encore. Is It a Go or a "Maybe?"

By BERNARD FERNANDEZ Fighters who claim they are irreversibly intent on retiring from the ring are like former chart-topping vocalists who sing a supposedly final song at a concert, walk off the stage for a few minutes but almost always perform for an encore or two after the audience begs for just a little bit extra. The undisputed queen of the long goodbye is Cher, who seemingly was on her “farewell” tour for 20 years. It is established procedure in sports and in the music business for top performers to edge toward the exit, their...

Is Amir Khan As Good As He Thinks He Is?

  By Kelsey McCarson Amir Khan is an extremely gifted athlete and a supremely confident one, too. He’s won world alphabet titles at 140, made lots and lots of money and, along the way, has become one of the sport’s most recognizable stars. Khan is a very good fighter. But is he really as good as he thinks he is? He should hope so. While Canelo Alvarez isn’t a fighter of Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao’s caliber (at least not at the present), it doesn’t seem out of line that he will be heavily favored over Khan when the two...

D.C. Notebook: Inept Judging Nearly Ruins Showtime’s Mini-Tournament Plan

Ronan Keenan WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Generating intrigue in a boxing event is often a difficult task for a promoter or television network. Sometimes fighters drive the promotion themselves, as was the case when Adrien Broner spawned copious amounts of publicity for himself in the run-up to his most recent bout thanks to weeks of headlines and social media content about his salacious out-of-the ring behavior. Other times the promoters have more work to do. Saturday’s Showtime-televised event at the same venue where Broner last fought,...

Hughie Fury Stops Fred Kassi in London – A Drab Fight Salvaged by a Zesty Undercard

Rising heavyweight contender Hughie Fury took another step up the fistic ladder on Saturday, April 30, but the 21-year-old cousin of Tyson Fury was far from impressive. In his previous bout, Fury pitched a shutout over Dominic Guinn in a humdrum bout in which the U.S. invader showed very little offensively. His match with Fred Kassi was playing out in the same fashion until an accidental clash of heads in round six opened a nasty gash over Fury’s right eye. In the following round, on the advice of the ringside physician, the referee...

The Dirrell Brothers Take Home the Bacon in Atlantic City

  The fighting Dirrell brothers from Flint, Michigan moved up the pecking order in the super middleweight division with victories over their respective opponents in a PBC promotion at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City on Friday, April 29. Anthony Dirrell, the younger sibling by 13 months, hardly broke a sweat in disposing of Caleb Truax. Andre Dirrell overcame some dicey moments to score a unanimous decision over Australia’s Blake Caparello. Anthony Dirrell, now 29-1-1 (23) stopped Minnesota’s Caleb Truax (26-2-2 going in) at the...
