TSS Mainstay David Avila and the New BWAA Christy Martin Award

By: The Sweet Science Nov 18 2017

PRESS RELEASE-- Throughout boxing history, women have made a significant contribution to the sport, both in and out of the ring. These contributions have often been met with little recognition from the media and the public at large, including those within the boxing world.

Why Joshua Will Beat Wilder Regardless of Where They Fight

Why Joshua Will Beat Wilder Regardless of Where They Fight

By: Frank Lotierzo Nov 17 2017

Both fighters are well built and always look fit, one stands 6-6 and the other 6-7 and both have stopped every opponent they've faced. Their collective record is a resounding 59-0 (58), almost identical to Frazier and Ali 57-0 (48) before their first fight. One has some detractors because he was dropped by the best fighter he fought and the other has detractors because of the level of opposition h...

Brooklyn, NY: Deontay Wilder TKO 1 Bermane Stiverne, WBC heavyweight title It could be hard to write a report on a fight that took less than three minutes and involved less than 50 punches altogether (including Stiverne’s meager four punch output, all misses), but there is a lot to be said about Wilder’s attitude during this fight and the enormous confidence he displayed when dispatching a ...

Happy Halloween to The Executioner aka The Alien

By: Arne K. Lang Oct 31 2017

For most of his career he was “The Executioner.” He wore the kind of hooded mask that one associates – thanks to Hollywood horror flicks – with executioners during the Medieval Age. Late in his career, Hopkins morphed from The Executioner into The Alien. He exchanged his execution...

By: Matt Andrzejewski Oct 29 2017

THREE PUNCH COMBO -- In December, the International Boxing Hall of Fame class of 2018 will be unveiled. One of the most heavily debated names on this year’s ballot is Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41 KO’s) who will appear on the ballot for the first time. While at first he seemed a lock for enshrinement, the case against Vitali’s induction has grown in recent weeks to the point where his being inc...

Now Joshua Needs To Go Challenge Wilder

Now Joshua Needs To Go Challenge Wilder

By: Frank Lotierzo Oct 29 2017

This past Saturday night WBA/IBF heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua 20-0 (20) stopped challenger Carlos Takam 35-4-1 (27) in the 10th round to make his fourth successful title defense. Most of the 78,000-plus in attendance thought the fight was halted a little prematurely, as did I. The seemingly quick stoppage ultimately robbed Takam of his chance to extend his tremendous effort and Joshua was robb...
