“Unfortunately, Amir Khan has an injury in his hand that required surgery … Read Article
There was a press conference in London today, to promote the return fight between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko, now back on (we hope) for October 29 in Manchester. But only one half of the match-up turned up, as Fury had “car trouble” and was a no-show. Fury is said to have broken down on the motorway, his phone battery dead. Co-promoter Mick Hennessey explained how the unfortunate circumstances were simply beyond the heavyweight champion’s … Read Article
Reigning British middleweight champ Chris Eubank Junior has caused outrage with a tweet he put out regarding Saturday’s Gennady Golovkin-Kell Brook fight; or rather the ending to the bout.

New York’s “Miracle Man” Danny Jacobs left no doubt in his rematch with Sergio Mora last night. The first fight, one that saw both men hit the canvas before Mora’s ankle turned badly, saw to it that the two middleweights met again. Five knock downs over 7-rounds later, “regular” WBA 160-pound champ Jacobs was both victorious and in a confident enough mood to call out world middleweight king Gennady Golovkin.
Jacobs will be a hugely … Read Article
