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 [...]

Golovkin closing in on Chavez Jr on Froch’s Facebook poll

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. Froch initially asked fans if they wanted to see him fight DeGale or Chavez Jr. But a couple hours later, Froch added Golovkin’s name to the list. As you would guess, [...]

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 [...]

Gavern wants to give Deontay Wilder some rounds on August 16th

Journeyman Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KOs) is expected to be the next opponent for #1 WBC heavyweight contender Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) next Saturday night in a 10 round fight at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Gavern is taking the fight with little over one weeks’ notice, but he doesn’t seem too worried about it. The 37-year-old Gavern plans on going out there and doing the best [...]

Referee ruins fight, Rios beats Chaves on DQ; Vargas defeats Novikov

Brandon Rios (32-2-1, 23 Kos) should be on his knees tonight thanking referee Vick Drakulich for saving his career in needlessly disqualifying visiting fighter Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs) in the 9th round at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Drakulich had been overactive in taking points off from the 3rd round when he took a point off from Chaves for clinching. I still can't understand why Drakulich disqualified [...]

Arum working on Chavez Jr-Froch fight for 1/24

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is confident that he can put together a mega fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (48-1-1, 32 KO’s) and IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24 KOs) for January 24th for the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Arum has been in communication with Froch’s promoter Eddie Hearn and his father Barry in working out a deal to get Froch and Chavez Jr into the ring [...]

Golovkin willing to be the B-side against the top guys, says Loeffler

To show how serious WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) is willing to get the big names to fight him, he’s willing to be the B-side and even the C-side to make those fights happen, says his promoter Top Loeffer of K2 Promotions. Loeffler doesn’t say who these fighters are that he’d be willing to have Golovkin play second fiddle, but you would have to guess that he’s [...]

Soliman wants Golovkin next year

IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman (44-11, 18 KOs) is targeting WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) for a fight next year in the first part of the year. Soliman recently won the IBF title off of Felix Sturm last May in beating him by a 12 round unanimous decision in Germany. Instead of milking his IBF title the weakest of opponents like we see with many of the world champions [...]

De La Hoya wants Quillin vs. Golovkin fight

With nobody giving much love to WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin lately, Golden Boy Promotions president Oscar De La Hoya took to twitter today to name drop WBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s name in order to get Quillin some badly needed publicity. De La Hoya said he’d like to see Quillin face Golovkin. The interesting part about that is Golovkin and his promoter have been [...]

Saunders stops Blandamura; Eubank Jr destroys Jukic

#3 WBO, #5 WBC Billy Joe Saunders (20-0, 11 KO’s) passed the biggest test of his career in stopping a game but limited #13 IBF, #15 WBC Emanuele Blandamura (22-1, 5 KO’s) in the 8th round tonight in an impressive performance by the 24-year-old Saunders at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, UK. Fighting in the main event because of Tyson Fury pulling out of his dangerous fight against Alexander [...]

Canelo should do the right thing and give Lara a rematch like Mayweather gave Maidana a rematch

It’s been a little over a week since former WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) won a controversial 12 round split decision win over Erislandy Lara (19-2-2, 12 KO’s) in their fight at middleweight at 155, and it’s clear that boxing fans are even more undecided now than they were back then. Last night’s replay of the Canelo-Lara fight, including [...]
