The Heavyweight Triangle

Fury hit a massive milestone on his road back to Heavyweight domination as he beat Deontay Wilder to claim the WBC Heavyweight belt. His sights have been fully set on a unification bout but he’ll firstly have to repeat his victory as Wilder has instigated his rematch clause. Fans want to see Fury face AJ…

Fury Does it for the Downtrodden

Tyson Fury’s return to the ring has played out like a true hero story. The Gypsy King seemed to have it all in 2015 after he beat Wladimir Klitschko by unanimous decision, he was on top of the world, but you never know what’s going on in a persons head. Despite his heroic victory Fury…

Grim Gives us John Fury

On Friday Grim Sickers dropped his latest track, inspired by Tyson Fury’s father John, along with the supporting visuals. It’s the first solo single that Grim’s been on this year although Sukh Knight dropped David Seaman, on which Grim was the feature, at the start of the year so it’s the second piece of Grim…

Monthly Musings: The Rise of YouTube Boxers

Sometimes I feel it might be better to live under a rock and recently was a prime example of that as two people who stream themselves on YouTube for a living were able to make a mockery of the sport of boxing. I don’t think I’d have had such an issue with it was it…

Does Boxing Have A Drug Problem?

All sports have their problems and when you can gain an advantage through performance enhancing drugs to keep on top or give you a chance to get there it’s an enticing promise. Recently (And this could very well just be me) it seems there is an increase in use of drugs in boxing, or at…

McGregor Retires from UFC

The former Lightweight and Featherweight UFC Champion has this morning announced his retirement from the sport. McGregor has been instrumental in expanding UFC’s reach across the pond both in Ireland and the UK and for the casual observer he is easily on of the most recognisable faces. In his tweet announcing his retirement McGregor said;…

Eubank Jr A Pick of 5

I was going to call this one Eubank’s Top 5 but I realised it’s not necessarily his best 5 fights that I’m picking but rather 5 of the most significant or important fights in his career. If there’s any fights you think should have been included though, please comment below. Chris Eubank Jr takes on…

DeGale Top 5 Fights

James “Chunky” DeGale takes on Chris Eubank Jr at the end of this month so I thought I’d look back at some of the best fights along the way so far. The build up is underway and personally I think it’s going to be an exciting affair, even though Chunky has confirmed that it’s likely…

Khan Dodges Brook in Favour of Crawford

It’s been confirmed that Amir Khan will not yet be facing Brook, in fact I imagine that the Brook Khan fight will never materialise now, Khan is instead flying to America to take on Terrence Crawford for the WBO title. It’s an odd one for the Bolton Boy who has an insatiable obsession with America,…

Whyte Chisora II

Whyte and Chisora step into the ring together for the second time this weekend and Chisora will be looking for revenge having lost out on a split decision first time around. The first fight wasn’t without its talking points though, especially as many people felt that Chisora edged the fight, Chisora managed to hurt Whyte…

Will We Ever See Brook Khan?

Brook managed to notch up a victory against Australia’s Michael Zerafa at the weekend but it wasn’t the stellar performance that you may expect, in fact it was quite an underwhelming show where Brook simply got the job done over the distance. Brook has been described as sloppy throughout the latter half of the fight…

Fury Wilder: The Big One

This weekend, after an explosive build up, Fury will be facing WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder in the ring in what has been billed as the largest Heavyweight fight on US soil since Lennox Lewis beat Vitali Klitschko in 2003. Both fighters have certainly done their part in building up the fight and it certainly…

The Art of the Buildup: Fury Wilder

These days it seems the build up to the fight is as important as the fight itself, or at least with some fighters. Fury has always been one of the most entertaining when it comes to the buildup with my personal favourite being the time he rocked up in a Batman suit to the Klitschko…

Why Do People Still Doubt Joshua?

I remember saying to my pal when Anthony Joshua was boxing in the Olympics that he was going to be something special, after his first few fights I’d say it only to be told he’d not really been tested, once he’d won his title I was told it was the easy option and that he’s…

Khan’s no Longer Convincing

As much as I’m not a huge fan, you can’t deny that Amir Khan has achieved great things during his career. He’s been a unified world champion as well as boxed at four different levels, he really could have been a spearhead figure in putting British Boxing in the map but instead he turned his…

Sam Eggington Suffers Shock Defeat

Sam Eggington fought in front of a home crowd at the weekend in what was supposed to be a tune up fight, unfortunately for him things didn’t got quite according to plan leaving him instead with his fifth professional defeat as his suffered his first KO in the second round. Hassan Mwakinyo managed to take…

Fury to Face Wilder

Tyson Fury’s first return to the ring was against considerably lower caliber opponent than he probably should have faced, his second which is due next month is a slightly better match as he steps in the ring with Francesco Pianeta the former Heavyweight title contender. That said he isn’t referred to as a former champion…

Parker Suffers Second Defeat

Whyte inflicted Parker’s second successive defeat following a grueling battle that could well have gone either way. I said before the fight it could have essentially fuelled the fire that Parker was a paper champ, however I don’t particularly think the end result has been so damming. Parker hit the canvas twice, once in the…

Has Parker Got More to Lose?

This Saturday Dillain Whyte will face former WBO Heavyweight Champion Joseph Parker which could eventually see him become mandatory challenger for another shot at Anthony Joshua, of course victory for Parker could also see him given another chance to win back his title. For me Parker still has more to lose in this one, he…

Groves Smith to be Fought in Jeddah?

UK Boxing is booming and many new fans have found themselves attracted to the sport as a result of it’s success. That makes the decision to have an all British final take place in Saudi Arabia quite frustrating. I assume there must have been some form of arrangement between the WBSS and the venue in…

WBA Order AJ to Face Povetkin

The WBA have ordered Anthony Joshua to fight mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin or risk being stripped of the WBA belt, he was issued 24 hours yesterday and as of yet I’ve not seen an announcement to suggest it’s been sorted now. It is however expected that the fight will take place in September. To me…

Dillian Whyte to Face Joseph Parker

It’s been announced that Dillian Whyte will face, former WBO Heavyweight champion, Joseph Parker on the 28th July. Personally I feel this is a fight that Parker has more to lose while Whyte can continue on his path to challenging for a world title. Parker will no doubt be looking to make amends following his…

A Disappointing Return

Tyson Fury made his return to the ring yesterday and it was quite a disappointing fight as the pair were quite obviously such a mismatch fight with Seferi at times looking in awe of Fury. In fact the most exciting exchange happened outside of the ring as a brawl erupted in the stands which Fury…

How Long can the WBSS Final be Delayed?

When George Groves suffered his injury against Chris Eubank Jr it seemed as though the patients the organizers of the World Boxing Super Series wouldn’t hold indefinitely however it looks as though they are prepared to wait a few months now. It’s a tough one for the organizers as they wanted to stick to a…

Fury’s Disappointing Choice of Opponent

Tyson Fury will face Sefer Seferi in his return to the ring. When I heard rumors of Fury coming back to fight Shannon Briggs I thought it was a bit of a letdown as Briggs was a bit past it now, Seferi has never made it and definitely not in the Heavyweight division so Briggs…

Bellew Haye II

This Saturday saw Tony Bellew and David Haye step into the ring for the sequel to their 4th March 2017 clash which saw Bellew come away victorious as Haye suffered an Achilles injury. Despite the injury Haye tried hard to continue and refused to blame it in his post fight interview as a reason for…

The King is Back

Love him or hate him one thing is for sure, the Gypsy King is a personality that you can’t escape in boxing, there’s literally a void without him. To be fair his antics are unique to himself, I don’t think any other boxer could do a press conference in a batman costume. His press conference…

Should Drug Cheats Receive Harsher Punishment

The big story in boxing at the moment has been Canelo Alvarez failing his drug test for which he has been handed a 6 month suspension for. Boxing, like most sports, isn’t immune from it’s competitors trying to gain an advantage through performance enhancing drugs and with the advancement of synthetic drugs you have to…

Khan Returns

Amir Khan returned to action after a two year hiatus at the weekend and managed to come back in sensational style, he knocked out his opponent Lo Greco in under 40 seconds but showcased the infamous Khan speed, and I’m not referring to how quick he jumped out the ring after calling out Brook. Lo…

The Sham that is Mayweather McGregor II

The Sham that is Mayweather McGregor II Rumours are rife, practically confirmed, that Mayweather and McGregor will step into the octagon together, a prospect to initially get excited about, the prospect that Boxing’s legend could get well and truly battered for not being a fighter, the question of “Can boxers cross over into MMA?” Looks…

Fury to Face Briggs in Return Fight

Fury to Face Briggs in Return Fight It’s been rumoured that Tyson has already sorted his comeback fight and it will be against Shannon Briggs in June not September, a slightly disappointing comeback given Briggs is well past his prime. It’s not the first time these pair have been rumoured to be fighting, Givemesport suggests…

AJ Beats Parker and Sets up Wilder

AJ Beats Parker and Sets up Wilder AJ beat Parker at the weekend, although he was taken the distance for the first time since turning pro. The dust had barely settled, the referee had barely stopped completely killing off the fight before news filtered through that AJ Wilder will likely happen this summer. We saw…

AJ Parker: Preview

AJ Parker: Preview Tonight will see Anthony Joshua take on Joseph Parker, a step towards a true Heavyweight Champion as 4 of the belts for the division will be on the line tonight. The next step then is Wilder and it seems extremely likely that this fight will take place in the next year or…

Mayweather Applying for an MMA License

Mayweather Applying for an MMA License It’s been revealed that Floyd Mayweather Jr intends to apply for an MMA License, no doubt to face McGregor in the octagon reversing the roles of August last year when McGregor stepped into the boxing ring with Mayweather in a fight that failed to live up to expectations. Mayweather…

Brook Makes Light Work of Rabchenko and Demands Khan Fight

It’s good to…

Wilder Beats Ortiz then Fury Throws his Name in the Hat

Wilder Beats Ortiz then Fury Throws his Name in the Hat Wilder overcame an early scare to stop Ortiz in the tenth round and retain his WBC Heavyweight Title inflicting Luis Ortiz first career defeat. It was a proper battle but it wasn’t the greatest of fights, at times both fighters looked tired and Ortiz…

Callum Smith Could Still Face Brahmer

Callum Smith Could Still Face Brahmer Callum Smith made difficult work of his victory over late replacement, Nieky Holzken, at the weekend being taken the distance by the former kickboxer. It was a fight that I lost interest in when Brahmer withdrew as the result of illness but was never one that I expected to…

The Super Series Injuries

The Super Series Injuries This weekend Callum Smith will face Nieky Holzken rather than the scheduled match up with Jurgen Brahmer. Brahmer had to pull out due to sickness with a mere 4 days notice, due to it being a tournament bracket it needs to continue so the undefeated but relatively untested Holzken has stepped…

Groves vs Eubank Jr

Groves vs Eubank Jr This weekend George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr come head to head in the World Boxing Super Series Semi Finals with the IBO Super-Middleweight and WBA (Super) Super-Middleweight titles also on the line. There’s been a lot said about this fight being 50/50 and whilst I appreciate it’s not set in…

Can Okolie Dominate at Cruiserweight?

Can Okolie Dominate at Cruiserweight? Lawrence Okolie kept his unbeaten start at professional level as he beat Isaac Chamberlain on points to claim WBA Continental Cruiserweight title in fight that has received mixed responses. Labelled as “mix matched” as well as being accused of “lacking drama” Okolie came out the clear winner but hasn’t been…

Canelo GGG Rematch

Canelo GGG Rematch Yesterday the news broke that the expected rematch between Canelo and GGG would be taking place on the 5th May generating a buzz to fit two of the Middleweight Division and indeed boxing in generals most exciting boxers. Consisting of 12 rounds as with the initial bout between the two both fighter…

Fury’s Fitness

Fury intends to fight Joshua on his return and the concerns of…

Spence jr Makes Light Work of Peterson

Spence Jr Makes Light Work of Peterson Spence Jr successfully defended his IBF Welterweight Title as Peterson’s corner decided to throw the towel in. Peterson suffered quite a brutal beating from Spence although he did come into it a bit more in the third round. Spence dominated from the first bell, working the body which…

March’s Exciting Lineup

March’s Exciting Lineup March is shaping up to be an exciting month for boxing, Kell Brook makes his debut at Light Middleweight on the third taking on Sergey Rabchenko in Sheffield while Birmingham’s Gamal Yafai defends his WBC International super-bantamweight on the undercard, taking on Gavin McDonnell. It will be exciting to see how Brook…

Khan Signs to Matchroom

Khan Signs to Matchroom Amir Khan is the king of contradiction, he swore he’d never go on I’m a Celebrity but entered the Jungle last year and he’s now joining Eddie Hearn after years of public feuding, it seems the only consistency with Khan is he will do anything for money. Khan has been plagued…

Spence backs Brook

Spence backs Brook Errol Spence Jr defends his IBF Welterweight Belt on January 20th taking on Lamont Peterson. During the build up to this fight Spence said of Lamont, “I feel he is a better fighter than Kell Brook and has even more heart than Kell Brook.” While refusing to speculate ahead of the outcome…

Fury Wants AJ Return

Fury wants AJ Return Tyson Fury’s highly anticipated return is fast approaching and it turns out he has one fight in mind for his return, Anthony Joshua. While this doesn’t particularly come as a shock that the Gypsy King would want to go for the top and would do it in a platform that would…

Frankie Gavin: Now or Never

Frankie Gavin: Now or Never Birmingham’s Frankie Gavin is too often linked with the word “underachievement” but he intends to banish doubters in February as he fights for the IBO Welterweight belt in none other than the mighty Brum!

Tyson Fury Returns but AJ may be off?

Where for James DeGale Next?

Where for James DeGale Next? James DeGale suffered his second career defeat following another poor defence of the IBF Super-Middleweight title following his draw to Badou Jack. Caleb Truax simply built a game plan around the way Badou Jack approached the fight and was successful causing a major upset. DeGale had surgery at the start…

Could Fury Bellew Happen?

Could Fury Bellew Happen? Tyson Fury calling out Tony Bellew following the collapse of the scheduled rematch between Bellew and Haye seemed a bit fanciful and farfetched to most, myself included, it seemed like a fight the Bellew camp should stay well away from and these sentiments were echoed by his trainer, Bellew however doesn’t…

Haye Pulls out of Bellew Rematch

Haye Pulls out of Bellew Rematch David Haye has pulled out of his highly anticipated rematch with Tony Bellew following a freak accident while training.

Kell Brook Taunts Khan

Kell Brook Taunts Khan Kell Brook joked that Amir Khan is taking drastic measures to avoid fighting him by going into the jungle for I’m a Celebrity… Get me Out of Here, but also that he’ll ensure that Khan will “eat some kangaroo testicles, or something like that.” Personally I don’t know when we’re likely…

Will 2018 be the Year AJ Silences Doubters?

Will 2018 be the Year AJ Silences Doubters? Anthony Joshua looks increasingly unstoppable, he has yet to be taken the distance and looks in impeccable condition so it’s becoming increasing difficult to see who will stop the people’s champion. That said there are a few that doubt AJ’s credentials and are constantly asking for him…

Wilders Words of War

Wilders Words of War At the weekend Wilder faced the only opponent to take him the distance previously and quickly made a mockery of this statistic with a stoppage against the Canadian in under 3 minutes. Granted it wasn’t the most technical of displays from the Yank but it was vicious and sent out a…

AJ Fury 2018?

AJ Fury 2018? This week Tyson Fury announced that the BBBoC has all but given him the green light to face Anthony Joshua next year, delving a bit further it appears that this isn’t strictly true and that the BBBoC is in fact waiting for Fury’s legal representatives to set a date with the UK…

Khan Calls Out Mayweather

Khan Calls Out Mayweather Khan has been trying to land a fight with Mayweather longer than he’s been ducking Kell Brook it seems and retirement for Team Money doesn’t seem to have been the end of it as once again Khan is trying to land the Money Fight. Perhaps spurred on by Mayweather coming out…

Does Joey Barton have a Point?

Does Joey Barton have a Point? Yesterday footballer Joey Barton and Chris Eubank Snr were discussing Eubank Jnr on TalkSport when Barton presented Eubank Snr with a question that was too difficult for him to respond to, Eubank subsequently hung up (or lost reception if you believe Snr). It was a poor display from Eubank…

Eubank Aims for Groves

Eubank Aims for Groves Chris Eubank won his Super Series fight against Avni Yildirim with a third round stoppage and then urged fellow Brit George Groves to win his own fight so the pair can face up and “Give the public what they want”.

The thing…

GGG vs Canelo: Review

Fury’s Re-Return?

Fury’s Re-Return? Tyson Fury is easily one of Boxing’s most notable personalities and still managed to showcase his ability managing to stop Klitschko back in 2015 before it all seemed to go wrong for the self-proclaimed Gypsy King. Fury has and indeed still does have quite a disdain for the heavyweight division, he doesn’t rate…

Joshua vs Pulev

Now they’re all at it!

Now they’re all at it!

Why Joshua Shouldn’t Fight Pulev in Vegas

Why Joshua Shouldn’t Fight Pulev in Vegas As Wladimir Klitschko announced his retirement Anthony Joshua’s next opponent was ordered to be Kubrat Pulev, the mandatory challenger to the IBF Heavyweight title.

Pac-Man on ESPN

Pac-Man on ESPN Manny Pacquiao will take on Jeff Horn live on ESPN, it will be the first time Pacquiao hasn’t fought on PPV since his victory over Hector Velazquez.

What Now for Paul Smith?

A Bellew Haye Rematch

A Bellew Haye Rematch Following Bellew’s victory over former Heavyweight Champion David Haye back in March, a rematch was almost instantly suggested as Bellew confirmed he’d be happy to do so if there was enough public interest.

Brook Loses IBF Welterweight Strap

Brook Loses IBF Welterweight Strap Kell Brook was unable to retain his IBF Welterweight belt at the weekend against an Errol Spence Jr that just kept on coming.

Brook Spence

Brook Spence Kell Brook defends his IBF Welterweight belt against Errol Spence Jr at the weekend and is going into the fight as the bookies underdog.

The Dirrell Drama

The Dirrell Drama At the Weekend Andre Dirrell won the vacant IBF Interim Super-Middleweight belt in controversial fashion after Jose Uzcategui was disqualified for landing a punch on Dirrell after the bell.

Joshua Silences Critics

Joshua Silences Critics Before Saturday some people doubted Joshua’s credentials, they brushed off his impressive record on the basis he’d not fought anyone decent, these people were holding out for someone to end Joshua’s run of KO’s, for someone to inflict Joshua’s first defeat and they saw Klitschko as the man to do this. Klitschko…

5 of Joshua’s Most Important Fights

5 of Joshua’s Most Important Fights As Joshua takes on Klitschko tomorrow I thought I’d look back at 5 of Joshua’s biggest fights to date, his record stands at 18-0 all KO. He has yet to be taken the distance in his professional career, although it’s going to be tough for Joshua so there’s every…

Klitschko’s Defining Moments

Klitschko’s Defining Moments This weekend see’s the long awaited and highly anticipated fight between a heavyweight icon, Wladimir Klitschko and the divisions rising star, Anthony Joshua.

Brook Spence

Brook Spence Mayweather has had his say on the impending fight between Kell Brook and Errol Spence Jr. Brook hasn’t been in the ring since his defeat to Gennady “GGG” Golovkin last September which left him with a broken eye-socket and this seems to be the cause of Mayweather’s concern for Brook. “I think him…

Joshua to ‘Step Up’

Joshua to ‘Step Up’ It’s a mere 18 days until the reigning IBF Heavyweight Champion is due to take on it’s former holder and although it is quite a cliche to say, “This is Joshua’s biggest challenge yet,” that doesn’t make it any less accurate. Klitschko is however, a different caliber of opponent to anything…

Will Canelo now Face GGG?

Will Canelo now Face GGG? This weekend saw Gennady “GGG” Golovkin be taken the distance for the first time in 9 years as Danny Jacobs defied GGG’s trainer, Abel Sanchez’s assertions that “Nobody from 154 to 168lbs can go 12 rounds with him.” Brook exposed weaknesses in GGG that Jacobs was able to utilise and…

Bellew to Fight Again this Year

Bellew to Fight Again this Year I’m not sure I’ve posted since Tony Bellew beat David Haye, I doubt my comments would have been unsurprising. Bellew was the underdog, I called the result and even possible injury but I didn’t guess in a million years the extent of the injury, the battle mentality of the…
