Nikita Tszyu Ready To Fill Father’s Shoes

It is no secret that boxing happens to be a generational sport, meaning that sons like to give boxing a go if their fathers made a name for themselves by fighting. It seems as though almost every champion has a son that wishes to continue the family tradition, and for Kostya and Nikita Tszyu, the plan is no different.

“I reckon it [the Olympics] will be too late for me, I want to get into pros as early as possible.I want to get to the Commonwealth Games, then go pro. My dad did it early; I want to get as much experience in the professionals as I can. I don’t really like team sports, I don’t like depending on other people. I work hard by myself and get all the results for myself. I’ve got one job, that’s to win the gold,” stated Nikita.


Deontay Wilder Arrested in Vegas For Strangulation

wilder52By Vitali Shaposhnikov: It appears as thought Deontay Wilder has recently joined the criminal record boxing club. Wilder was arrested for domestic assault in Las Vegas, but was later released after a very hefty jail bond fee of $15,000 was paid. He has now been scheduled to appear in court on July 3.

Thus far there are no details available. Rumor mill has it that he was strangling someone, and police were called. His trainer Jay Deas claimed that he has no information on what had happened, and only knew that Wilder was heading to Vegas for the Mayweather Jr. bout.


Brandon Rios vs. Freight Train Manny Pacquiao on November 24

pac45By Vitali Shaposhnikov: I assume that at this point, most of you already know that Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios are slated to meet inside the ring come November 24th. This will be a very unusual fight in a sense that it will be taking place in China, far away from where both fighters are used to going to work. This may turn out to be a bad decision, taking the sport of boxing away from where both men earned their status, but Top Rank is convinced that this decision will yield much better profits by lowering the tax fees.

Brandon Rios is a well established fighter, and with a record of 31 wins and only one loss (lost his last fight to Mike Alvarado), it’s only fair to take him as a serious threat to any fighter. Of course the mystery of how he gets to be the first in line to fight Pacquiao after a loss is a mystery to many boxing fans and analysts.


Amir Khan vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2014?

floyd#15 After this past Saturday night, when Floyd Mayweather Jr. made his fight against Robert Guerrero look like a sparring session rather than a world championship bout, the mystery of how to beat Floyd remains in tact.

Every fighter has promised to do what Floyd’s previous opponent failed to deliver, but thus cycle has been ongoing for all of his 44 fights. Of course knowing Mayweather Jr., he is as much a businessman as he is a fighter, and he knows how to make them most of his promotional effort.

One of the main names mentioned for Mayweather Jr. as the next potential challenger is Saul Alvarez, but it seems as though Amir Khan in more on the Money Team’s radar as this point in time.
