Watching Mayweather Pilot Gervonta Davis’s Career Will Be Fascinating

His promoter and friend is the recently retired pound-for-pound champ, Floyd Mayweather, and he's known in some boxing circles as "Mini Mike Tyson." His name is Gervonta Davis 18-0 (17) and he currently holds the IBF junior lightweight title. This past weekend he made his first title defense and des...

A Joshua-Klitschko Rematch Seems Inevitable, and that’s Distressing

A Joshua-Klitschko Rematch Seems Inevitable, and that’s Distressing

 If the reports leaking out are true, Wladimir Klitschko will activate his rematch clause with Anthony Joshua and the two will meet again in the fall. I didn’t want to see that happen, but I can't say I blame Wladimir because it's really hard to walk away from millions of dollars doing something ...

Crawford Has Too Many Weapons for Diaz to Overcome

TERENCE CRAWFORD vs FELIX DIAZ -- This weekend’s title bout between defending WBC/WBO and lineal junior-welterweight title holder Terence Crawford 30-0 (21) and the WBC's third ranked contender Felix Diaz 19-1 (9) at Madison Square Garden, will not be automatic for Crawford but he is an overwhelmi...

Canelo’s Drawing Power Will Zoom into the Stratosphere if he Beats GGG

Canelo’s Drawing Power Will Zoom into the Stratosphere if he Beats GGG

With the announcement of the much anticipated middleweight title bout between Saul "Canelo" Alvarez 49-1-1 (34) and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin 37-0 (33), I think it's fair to say the boxing community hasn't been this electrified since it became official that Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao would...

Why Is Every Fighter Measured Against Perfection?

Have you seen Frank Lotierzo's young heavyweight prospect, Louis Ali? He's like no other fighter you've ever seen fighting at heavyweight or any other weight.

Looking Back on Canelo-Chavez and a Brief Look Ahead to Golovkin

Looking Back on Canelo-Chavez and a Brief Look Ahead to Golovkin

After gouging boxing fans by fighting Miguel Cotto, who debuted as a junior welterweight, Amir Khan, who debuted as lightweight, Liam Smith, an undefeated junior-middleweight with the WBO title, but not worthy of watching on PPV, and then a weight-drained Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., it looks as though C...

Joshua Answered All Questions but Klitschko Fortified His Legacy

JOSHUA VS. KLITSCHKO, AN INSTANT CLASSIC -- Some predicted Joshua would win it quickly, others thought it would be a slow waltz with clinching and holding as Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko lumbered around the ring. Others said it was too early for Joshua and too late for Klitschko. As it turn...

Why Joshua Will Dispatch Klitschko, Ushering in a New Heavyweight Era

Why Joshua Will Dispatch Klitschko, Ushering in a New Heavyweight Era

Some refer to it as the passing of the torch or the changing of the guard. It occurs when a former longtime champ in the twilight of his career meets the newly projected star who is believed to be the next great fighter. It doesn't happen often but when it does it usually marks the end of one era an...

Klitschko’s Legacy Probably Rests On Beating Joshua

Klitschko’s Legacy Probably Rests On Beating Joshua

I say he is due all props for taking this fight. That's right. I salute the 41-year-old former unified heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko 64-4 (53), for accepting the biggest challenge of his career at such an advanced age for a fighter. In mid-December of last year Klitschko agreed to challenge I...
