Former Champion Rocky Lockridge Hospitalized

In a sport whose history is littered with tragic stories, it sometimes is easy to forget the one's unfolding today. Former WBA and IBF 130 pound champion Rocky Lockridge is currently hospitalized in serious condition in New Jersey. Lockridge's boxing career ended in April of 1992 with an overall record of 44-9. He is best remembered for his first round knockout of Roger Mayweather to win the WBA super featherweight title back in February of 1984. He also fought memorable matches with Julio Cesar Chavez and Wilfredo Gomez to name a few. In...

The Hauser Report: A Look Back at Thurman-Porter

By Thomas Hauser The June 25 fight card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn featured WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman (Florida) versus challenger Shawn Porter (Ohio) in a battle of fighters from swing states that may well decide the 2016 presidential election. Politics aside, it was everything that a fight should be. When Thurman dials back the hype, he comes across as thoughtful and intelligent. There’s the glib Keith Thurman and the deeper, more introspective persona. Trainer Dan Birmingham says, “I’ve known Keith since he...

Thurman-Porter: When Was The Last Time We Saw All That?

By Frank Lotierzo This past weekend WBA welterweight title-holder Keith Thurman 27-0 (22) won a unanimous 12-round decision over top contender Shawn Porter 26-2-1 (16) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. As most know I loved this match-up from the very second it was made. In my view Thurman-Porter represented everything that is, or at least could be, good about professional boxing at its highest level. And based on the result, I was right. Thurman-Porter as of June 2016 is no doubt the fight of the year. The bout was nothing but...

Thurman vs. Porter: CBS Hit a Hole-in-One

By Rick Folstad The guys who like to stand over the fight game and count to ten, claiming the sport has been knocked out by octagons, leg kicks, and the MMA, probably missed Saturday night’s fight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. I’m guessing that if they had watched it, they might have seen a glimmer of what boxing once was and what it can still be. The fight game is dead? Hardly. Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter single-handedly gave it new life this weekend. The two welterweights combined to throw over 1,200 punches over 12...

Weekend Recap: Developments You May Have Missed

It seems that not a Saturday goes by without big boxing shows on both sides of the Atlantic. In Europe, the big show was at the O2 Arena in London where Anthony Joshua was making the first defense of his IBF World heavyweight title. In the U.S., a lusty skirmish between welterweights Keith Thurman and Shawn Porter topped a big card at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the main events of which were on free TV (CBS), attracting strong viewership numbers, a development that may signify a leap to a more radiant era for a much-maligned...

R.I.P. Jack Obermayer: The Man Was a Legend in His Own Right

By BERNARD FERNANDEZ Two boxing legends, each of whom set standards that likely never will be surpassed, died 22 days apart in June. One, you almost certainly know about. Guy named Muhammad Ali. Called himself “The Greatest,” and, as he often said, if you can do it, it ain’t bragging. The three-time former heavyweight champion was 74 when he passed away June 3 from complications of the Parkinson’s syndrome he was originally diagnosed with more than 30 years earlier. The other, Jack Obermayer, well, his fame is not quite as...

Thurman Narrowly Beats Porter in a Fight That Clamors for a Rematch

By Diego Morilla Brooklyn, NY - A close fight was expected, and that’s exactly what the 12,718 souls at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center got when unbeaten welterweight kingpin Keith Thurman (27-0, 22 KOs) kept his streak alive by the slimmest of margins against tough-as-nails Shawn Porter (26-2-1, 16 KOs) in a 12-round welterweight title fight that featured action from bell to bell – and left the call for an immediate rematch reverberating through the entire venue. Floyd Mayweather’s undisputed welterweight throne was up for grabs, but...

Results From The O2 Arena - Joshua Solves and Dissolves Breazeale

Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing were at London's O2 Arena Saturday with a huge night of fights that saw the features air on SKY Box Office in the United Kingdom and on Showtime International in the United States. The main event of the evening saw IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (16-0) defend his title for the first time as he faced Dominic Breazeale (17-0). The fight saw Breazeale enter as a huge underdog, and for many, the question was not if Joshua would win, but when. Most observers were thinking it would be over...

Chris Eubank Jr. Blows Away Tom Doran in a Likely Prelude to a Match with GGG

The fight between Chris Eubank Jr. and Tom Doran wasn’t billed as the chief supporting bout to Joshua vs. Breazeale on Eddie Hearn’s big show at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday, June 25. That honor went to the 168-pound contest between George Groves and Martin Murray. However, Eubank Jr. vs. Doran attracted more international eyes than any other bout on the undercard. The reason was simple. Eubank Jr. is the presumptive opponent for WBA/WBC/IBF World middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin when Golovkin makes his next...

Eye on The Heavyweights – More From The Most Chaotic Division in Boxing

Late yesterday, June 24, the news that Tyson Fury had an ankle injury bad enough to push back his July 9th rematch with Wladimir Klitschko until October seemed to be the perfect story to cap a chaotic week in the heavyweight division.The two first met last November 28th, so the delay means that both men will have been out of the ring for close to a year. The exact date in October is yet to be announced. Just hours away and possibly already in the books when you read this is today’s Anthony Joshua versus Dominic Breazeale IBF world...
