Eubank Jr vs Chudinov, Fury vs Hammer on BoxNation Saturday

Heavyweight star Tyson Fury will be out to impress when he takes on the unrelenting Christian Hammer.

The 26-year-old Manchester banger knows that everything is on the line when he faces the German based Romanian, with a shot at Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO belt next up if he comes through the fight unscathed, live and exclusive on BoxNation.

However, in the big-hitting Hammer, who has a record of 17 wins from his 20 fights, he faces a man who has vowed to tear up the script and steal the show at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.

Will Amir Khan end up fighting Brook after all?

Amir Khan, Kell Brook - British Boxing

For a while it seemed as though Amir Khan would get his dream of a super fight against either Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. It was certainly unlikely that they were going to fight each other, and they would both need opponents and Khan was coming off a supremely dominant performance over former world champion Devon Alexander.

Amir Khan has had a lot of ups and downs in his career, but it seemed as though all the chasing had been doing was going to pay off one way in another. Unfortunately for him they ended up making the fight and he was left out in the cold without an opponent or a world title. His last fight was in 2014, and so surely will now be searching for a good named opponent to try and nab a match with one of these guys at a later date, or another big fight at the very least.

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in must win situation on 18th April

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - Boxing News

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr was once a top contender, and even a good champion. In 2011, he won his 43rd contest and captured the WBC world middleweight title from the previously unbeaten Sebastian Zbik. He would then make 3 consecutive defences before taking on Sergio Martinez, and losing.

In the fight with Martinez he went in with a record of 46-0-1 but was really dominated in the fight. Martinez was simply the better man in every department and the only thing that went Chavez Jr’s was a knockdown in the twelfth round.

Broners trainer Mike Stafford: ‘He’s got to box this guy’

Adrien Broner - Boxing News

In an interview with FightHype, trainer Mike Stafford seems to know what his fighter has to do come fight night with John Molina Jr in the other corner. When discussing the fight, Stafford came right out and said that Broner would need to box this guy to get the win.

Whether he outboxes him and uses his skills to take the decision, or turns up the heat later and gets the stoppage, he would need to stick to a strict gameplan to win this one. I agree with this approach, as we saw from the Maidana fight that Broner could potentially have trouble with powerful, come forward type fighters.

Mayweather/Pacquiao: Just the Facts!

Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao, Mayweather vs. Pacquiao - Boxing News

As a writer, I usually wait until right before a big fight to drop a few lines regarding the underlying mechanisms that make both fighters tick. As an electrical engineer in everyday life, facts that lead to successful systems and processes must be processed immediately for the sake of expediency. The fight that most if not all boxing fans have been waiting for being made has renewed this writers enthusiasm, so I write.

First of all hats off to both fighters for making this fight especially Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather must be congratulated for silencing the verbal misinformation, meeting with Pacquiao and making sure that all of the i’s dotted and t’s crossed during negotiations enabling BOTH fighters to earn the biggest paydays of their careers.
