Below are excerpts from Adrien Broner’s interview with Brian Kenny:
Regarding his first loss last December to Marcos Maidana…
“That’s not the first time I took defeat. It might not be the last time. But God has got something in store for me. I am set for a major comeback.
“Maidana did what he was supposed to do. He threw big shots. I was in a hell of a fight. It comes with the territory. That’s boxing. Sometimes you don’t get hit, but sometimes you do. It’s not about that. It’s about how you get up. And I got up and fought to the last.” Continue reading

Thus far, problematic hands have proved easily the stiffest opponent to Nathan Brough’s ambitions of becoming a champion prizefighter.
In an amateur career that spanned almost 12 years, the 6ft Scouse stylist won a brace of national junior titles, represented England at the 2001 European Junior meet in Yugoslavia, then bagged a fabulous bronze medal at the World Juniors in Cuba a year later.
The former scaffolder vaulted to the professional sphere shortly after copping a red card in the 2007 ABA light-welter final but, in five and a half years, he has been restricted to just ten gigs (all wins) because of his maligned hands. Continue reading
With a victory over reigning Olympic champion Luke Campbell already gracing his CV, Scouse scrapper Ryan Farrag has little to fear as he attempts to bulldoze his way to domestic title contention.
The all-action crowdpleaser made it to the ABA final in 2010 and his only reverse in 11 paid outings was a three round loss to future European champion Lee Haskins. Continue reading
Liverpool light-welter Thomas Stalker is one of the most decorated amateur boxing that England has ever produced and is now aiming to replicate his success in the pros under new promoter Frank Warren.
The Scouse southpaw who skippered the 2012 British Olympic squad was already 28 by the time he sacrificed his singlet and head guard last February. However, in 2013 he romped to five pro wins (including two first round stoppages) before signing with Warren earlier this month. Continue reading

Having been told a while ago that Eddie Chambers was thinking of joining Team Fury, I thought “Astute of him. Where has he been?”. Here was a Heavyweight fighter with a record of W36 L4 who had been beaten last year in his only fight of 2013, after a bad decision to move down to Cruiserweight. Were the gears grinding down on “Fast Eddie’s” career? At 31, and seemingly losing love for the sport, Eddie was squandering the talent he had been given.
I had had a conversation with Peter Fury a few months ago after Chambers had been part of the Fury training camp for the, ultimately, disastrous Haye debacle. He was very impressed with Eddie’s skills and attitude. But you don’t need Peter to tell you Eddie can box/fight/win. Even a layman can see that Eddie Chambers has been in with the very best the sport has had to offer over the past 6 years: Wladimir Klitschko, Alexander Dimitrenko, Alexander Povetkin, Tomasz Adamek, Samuel Peter.
