Daniel Jacobs Crushes Peter Quillin: A Significant Fight in The Middlweight Division

Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (31-1-0, 28 KOs) steamrolled former undefeated WBO 160lb champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KOs) with a thrilling first round knockout. The bout between the two Brooklyn natives was a major win for Jacobs, giving him significant reason to claim “top dog” status in the burgeoning discussion on who represents the class of the middleweight division.

Most boxing prognosticators picked the veteran and well-tested Wladimir Klitschko to topple the slightly taller Tyson Fury in today’s match in Germany, where the Irish-English-Gypsy man upset Klitschko for the unified heavyweight champion title of the world.

Perhaps we should have trusted our instincts.

Klitschko v. Fury: The Old Model Still Beats The New One – Weights: Klitschko 245.3 lbs., Fury 246.4 lbs.

YouTube video

On Saturday, November 28, WBA WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir “Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko (64-0-3, 53 KOs) faces challenger Tyson Fury (24-0-0, 18 knockouts) in the ESPRIT arena, Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, for the heavyweight championship title. For veteran and betting favorite Wladimir Klitschko, the 6’6”, .245 lb. thirty-nine year old Ukrainian born in Kazakhstan (currently married to American actress Hayden Panettiere), a win in this bout means his twenty-fourth successful title defense (including his initial reign as a WBO champion), second only behind Joe Louis (twenty-five successful title defenses) and ahead of Larry Holmes (twenty) and Muhammad Ali (nineteen). Dr. Steelhammer is tied with Joe Louis as for most heavyweight title fights ever (twenty-seven).

David Haye: All Bravado, No Bottle 2.0

David Haye: All Bravado, No Bottle 2.0 Back in March 2011, I wrote an article entitled the same as this one minus the “2.0.” I opined that Haye’s performance against Wladimir Klitschko in a match that unified three of the heavyweight belts (WBA, WBO and IBF) was disgraceful and shameful given all of the chest-pounding, insults and smack talk that allowed David Haye the opportunity to fight a Klitschko brother for a title belt.

To say Haye failed to live up to his bravado before the fight with Wladimir Klitschko is an understatement. Haye was excoriated around the globe for his pathetic performance and embarrassing attempt to blame the loss on a hurt toe, and, for flopping like a professional soccer player attempting to draw a penalty.

Now, Haye claims that he wants a fight against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko before Dr. Ironfist retires from boxing. Bravado.
