Last night in Alexandria, Louisiana, former IBF heavyweight champ “Prince” Charles Martin improved to 25-1-1(23) with a quick, one-round KO over journeyman Michael Marrone, 21-8(15).
Fighting for the second time since his dire showing against unbeaten star Anthony Joshua, where the southpaw was taken out inside two disappointing rounds, Martin is now 2-0(2) in his post-Joshua comeback. A hard left hand to the body dropped Marrone, the swift end coming in the very first round.… Read Article
Who’s the best, the most amusing, the most original, the most fun talker in boxing today – Tyson Fury? Adrien Broner? Keith Thurman? Floyd Mayweather? The answer is, none of the above.
