Ward likes Khan’s speed and power

WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward has gotten the chance to see Amir Khan (28-3, 19 KO's) up close now that he's training in the same gym as him in Oakland, California with trainer Virgil Hunter, and Ward likes what he seems.

Khan: People want to see Mayweather with a different style than Maidana’s

Amir Khan is still trying to sell himself as the right opponent for Floyd Mayweather Jr. by pointing out the flaws in the game of WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana. Khan believes that fans ultimately will prefer himself as Mayweather's next opponent rather than Maidana because fans have already seen Mayweather fight a lot of slow fighters. So they now will want to see him face a guy with quick [...]

Mayweather still not ready to announce his next opponent

Amir Khan and Marcos Maidana are still very much in the running for the May 3rd fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. For whatever reason, it's taking Mayweather longer this time to announce his next opponent compared to in the past. That's probably a good thing for the fans because it hopefully means he won't be selecting an opponent that fans project to have absolutely no chance of winning. Unfortunately, [...]

Sergio Martinez targeting Gennady Golovkin after the June 7th Cotto bout

If everything works out well for WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KO's) with his June 7th title defense against the ambitious Miguel Cotto (38-4, 31 KO's), then Sergio wants to face WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26 KO's) in a unification fight. But Sergio must get past Cotto, because a loss in that fight would make the Golovkin bout a meaningless one for him. [...]

Bute and Pascal battle it out tonight at Bell Centre in Montreal

There are a lot of questions that will be answered tonight in the Canadian battle between Lucian Bute (31-1, 24 KO's) and Jean Pascal (28-2-1, 17 KO's) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
