But the clock is ticking on the man who is on the wrong side of … Read Article31 Comments on Luis Ortiz: STILL the heavyweight seemingly nobody wants to fight

Many fight fans are just that: fans of a fight, not so much fans of a showcase of subtle skill. For all the respect many fans have for practitioners of The Sweet Science, there is nothing more enjoyable than a two-way slugfest, or as Britain’s Nigel Benn would put it, a tear-up. This past Saturday’s classy and dominant points win Terence Crawford scored over Viktor Postol is a classic example – boxing fans certainly appreciated … Read Article24 Comments on Bored by Crawford-Postol?
