Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather Jr - ... Even if it is against a completely unworthy opponent.

… Even if it is against a completely unworthy opponent.

This Saturday Floyd Mayweather has a chance to break the unbeaten record of 49-0 set by heavyweight champ Rocky Marciano and while I certainly won’t fork over money to watch what I feel will not be a competitive fight I am rooting for the fighter Mayweather (not the person. Don’t know him or care to know him) to win and become the new benchmark at 50-0.

GGG’s knockout streak in perspective

Gennady Golovkin - Your question must surely be “who in God’s name is Amar Amari?”

Your question must surely be “who in God’s name is Amar Amari?”

Amar Amari was the last opponent that went the distance with GGG roughly seven years ago when the Kazakh fighter had his one and only bout in Denmark. The bout was chief support for Mikkel Kessler’s feature attraction against Dimitry Sartison which ended with Sartison being taken out of the ring on a stretcher.

Since that point Golovkin has taken out every single fighter that stood in his way and did so to the delight of boxing fans all over the world.

Why Vitali Klitschko and Nikolai Valuev Need To Come Out of Retirement and Fight Each Other! An open challenge to Both former Heavyweight Champions!

Vitali Klitschko - I recently came across an interesting statement that the former Iraqi vice president Taha Ramadan made in 2002: "The American president should specify a group, and we will specify a group and choose neutral ground with Kofi Annan as referee and use one weapon with a president against a president, a vice-president against a vice-president, and a minister against a minister in a duel."

The statement surely resonated with many people around the world because whenever leaders of any individual country decide to go to war it isn’t they who lead the charge on the frontline. Of course as logical as the statement was (as well as absurd in the context of modern society) the ironic fact is when Hussein’s Iraq itself had disputes with other countries no such offers were made to the leaders of those nations (as noted by then white house spokesman Ari Fleischer), and wars were fought, and people suffered.

Hopkins, Klitschko: When Dirty Fighters Play by their own set of Rules!

wlad793All of you know that in the past I have always praised both Wladimir Klitschko, and Bernard Hopkins for their work ethic, fighting skills, and accomplishments. In the past they were somewhat deserving of said praise even if it was interspersed with shades of holding, rabbit punching, pushing on the head, and just generally speaking dirty fighting. Hopkins had always employed this as part of his style, while Klitschko only began doing so post-Sanders knockout while working with Emanuel Steward.

For a time both showed less of these illegal maneuvers and more pure skill in some of their more brilliant victories.
However, with Klitschko’s win over Alexander Povetkin, and Bernard Hopkins victory over Karo Murat it has become clear that both of these superstar fighters are now simply ignoring the rules of boxing completely.
