Julius Indongo

Three Punch Combo: Julius Indongo, Mason Menard, Sergey Lipinets and More

THREE PUNCH COMBO -- On the undercard of Gassiev-Lebedev (more about that later) Julius Indongo scored a stunning upset with a one punch knockout of Eduard Troyanovsky less than one minute into their 12-round super lightweight title fight on Saturday. With one looping left hand, Indongo announced his presence in an emphatic manner and is now i...

MURAT GASSIEV

Murat Gassiev Thunders into the Realm of Cruiserweight Kingpins

MURAT GASSIEV GATECRASHES -- Two Russian warriors delivered a knockdown drag-out battle straight from the old school in Moscow last night (Saturday, Dec. 3) in a fight that feels like a true passing of the torch from one generation to the next. Perhaps not quite fight of the year material, both men showed enough guts and toughs for an entire d...

Joe Saunders

Weekend Boxing Recap: Billy Joe Saunders, Gassiev-Lebedev and More

WEEKEND BOXING RECAP -- The first Saturday of December marked the return of undefeated (24-0) Billy Joe Saunders who successfully defended his WBO middleweight title with a unanimous decision over Russia’s Artur Akavov at the Lagoon Leisure Center in Paisley, Scotland.  Saunders, who had been sidelined with a hand injury, was making his fir...

David Allen

It’s All About Risk and Reward for Intrepid British Heavyweight David Allen

LUIS ORTIZ vs. DAVID ALLEN -- David Allen (9-1-1), not to be confused with Siarhei Liakhovich (“The White Wolf”), Clifford Etienne (“The Black Rhino”), or Frans Botha (“The White Buffalo”), is known as “The White Rhino” and recently “extended” Dillian Whyte 10 rounds while dropping a decision. Using mostly his right hand (...

Hernandez Brothers

Before There Was Terence Crawford, There Were the Hernandez Brothers

THE FIGHTING HERNANDEZ BROTHERS -- In Omaha where he was born and bred, Terence Crawford is a hot commodity. The undefeated junior welterweight, who risks his WBA and WBO belts against John Molina Jr. in Omaha on Nov. 10, has singlehandedly resuscitated boxing in his hometown, the city with which he proudly identifies. But there was a period b...

Abraham Lopez Retains

Abraham Lopez Retains NABA Title in Downtown L.A.

ABRAHAM LOPEZ RETAINS NABA TITLE - If looks can be deceiving, Abraham Lopez may be the most deceiving of all. Once again the La Puente featherweight matched fighting wits with a tough customer and before more than 500 fans at Belasco Theater broke down Ensenada-born Sergio Lopez (20-12-1, 13 KOs) to win going away on Friday night. Lopez ...

Atlantic City Boxing Hall

Atlantic City Boxing Hall of Fame Reveres Past, Looks to Future

ATLANTIC CITY BOXING HALL OF FAME -- The Roman Empire isn’t going to rise again, a fact of life that apparently extends to boxing at Caesars Entertainment properties in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and, sadly, for East Coast aficionados of  the pugilistic arts, Atlantic City. But notable periods in history can and should be commemorated, and espec...

KOVALEV-WARD PPV NUMBERS

What the Poor Kovalev-Ward PPV Numbers Reveal

KOVALEV-WARD PPV NUMBERS -- It was said in this space that it was the best fight that could be realized in boxing. Both guys were legitimate world champions and undefeated. Moreover, they were in their respective primes. Sure, Canelo Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin has much more sizzle, but not nearly the authentic substance. Sergey Kovalev an...

Guillermo Rigondeaux

Where is Guillermo Rigondeaux?

WHERE IS GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX? -- That’s the question racing through my mind last weekend as I finished watching Vasyl Lomachenko’s easy-breezy boxing exhibition against Nicholas Walters. As expected, Lomachenko’s combination of fluid movement and fast-twitch muscle movement was way too much for the hard punching but outgunned Walters. T...
