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...

Erick Ituarte Wins in So Cal; Heavyweight LaRon Mitchell Stays Undefeated

By David A. Avila ONTARIO, CALIF.-It wasn’t slated as the main event but it fit the purpose to perfection as Santa Ana’s Erick Ituarte survived two knockdowns to defeat Tijuana’s Daniel Ramirez by decision at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario on Friday. Ituarte (14-1-1, 2 KOs) rallied from behind to win a disputed decision over the taller Ramirez (11-4, 5 KOs) after eight rounds. The crowd was not pleased by the decision, but very pleased by the Thompson Boxing Promotions super featherweight bout which was bumped up to the top of...

Heather Hardy is a Big Draw at Barclays. Why No TV?

By David A. Avila When Heather “The Heat” Hardy steps in the arena more ticket buying fans will be there to watch her fight than any other aside from the main event. Hardy packs them in. People can argue about the merits or demerits of female prizefighting. When it comes down to it: can a fighter draw ticket-buying fans to the arena? That’s the true value of any prizefighter. Hardy (16-0, 4 KOs) faces Kirstie Simmons (8-1) in a super bantamweight fight set for eight rounds on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Aside...
