Marquez wants shot at Kell Brook’s IBF title

40-year-old Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KOs) reportedly wants to get a title shot against newly crowned IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs), presumably for his next fight date in November or December. Marquez wants to try and capture a 5th division world title, and Brook is the easiest of the fighters he’d have a chance to do that against now. Marquez doesn’t match up against [...]

Thurman: Porter outworked Brook

WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman says that Britain’s Kell Brook (33-0, 22 KOs) got outworked last night by IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-1-1, 15 KOs) through the entire 12 round bout at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Thurman feels that the judges focused more on Brook landing the cleaner landing shots rather than the high volume punching from Porter. The judges gave [...]

Dirrell must avoid brawling with Bika

Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs) will be looking to capture Sakio Bika’s WBC 168 pound title tonight in their rematch at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Dirrell showed the talent to win last time he fought Bika last December, but he played to his strengths by electing to slug it out for the entire fight instead of boxing him the way that his brother Andre Dirrell had wanted him to. Tonight, [...]

Brook weighed in 146.5 pounds at today’s weigh-in. Brook towered over Porter during the face-off with him and seemed to have lost the nervousness that he [...]

Is Hopkins overmatched against Kovalev?

49-year-old Bernard Hopkins (55-6-2, 32 KOs) has surprised a lot of boxing fans by being able to come back from a 12 round decision loss to Chad Dawson in 2012 and turning things around by winning his last three fights against Tavoris Cloud, Karo Murat and Beibut Shumenov. Hopkins was seen as nearing the end of his career when Dawson beat him, but Hopkins has definitely turns things around with [...]

Dirrell: Bika can’t lay a hand on me when I box

(Photo credit: Hogan Photos) #6 WBC Anthony Dirrell (26-0-1, 22 KOs) plans on taking a page out of the playbook of his defensive-minded brother Andre Dirrell by strictly boxing WBC super middleweight champion Sakio Bika (32-5-3, 21 KOs) and not letting him hit him in their rematch this Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Dirrell made it easy for Bika the last time they fought [...]

Jermain Taylor battles Sam Soliman on 10/4

Former IBF/WBA/WBC/WBO middleweight champion Jermain Taylor (32-4-1, 20 KOs) is getting a miracle world title shot against IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman (44-11, 18 KOs) in less than two months from now on 10/4. The venue hasn’t been decided as of yet. Taylor is ranked at the bottom of the IBF rankings at #15, which would make him seem like an unlikely opponent for Soliman. But Soliman [...]

On Tuesday, IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch asked boxing fans on his Facebook account to pick out who they would like to see him fight from these three fighters: Julio Cesar Chavez, James DeGale and Gennady Golovkin.

Brook has a great chance of beating Porter, says Hatton

Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KOs) is the underdog in his fight against IBF 147 pound champ Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs) for their fight this Saturday night, but fellow Brit Matthew Hatton is giving him a great chance of going into the ring and taking Porter’s belt. Hatton knows what kinds of skills that Brook has, because he lost to him a couple of years ago by a 12 round decision. Hatton took Brook’s [...]

Brook: I know I’ll beat Porter 100%

British challenger Kell Brook (32-0, 22 KOs) is going to be stepping out of his comfort zone in coming to the United States to challenge IBF welterweight champion Shawn Porter (24-0-1, 15 KOs) this Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Brook has analyzed Porter’s fighting style and he doesn’t see any way that he can use his aggressive attacks against him on Saturday. Brook [...]
