With his intriguing, arguably career-toughest fight with Alexander Povetkin having fallen apart due to well-documented reasons seemingly everyone is aware of, WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder moves on – but to what fight?

“This is my opinion of bringing Professional boxing to the Olympics.
Myself having been a past member of the USA Team, I dislike the idea and see nothing good coming of it. It will only put the dream of the `Ordinary boy and girl,` farther out of reach. As we can see with Pro basketball there is no Rags to Riches anymore, just the pick of the litter.

David Haye will have to wait a substantial amount of time for that crack at IBF heavyweight ruler, says A.J promoter Eddie Hearn. Haye has made no secret of the fact that he wants a fight with the unbeaten star, convinced as he is about two things: the fight would be an enormous event in the UK (check) and he would be able to beat Joshua, by KO (debatable). But Hearn, in speaking with The … Read ArticleComments Off on Eddie Hearn: To tell you the truth, Haye is not on our radar
There was a time, as most fight fans probably remember, when the cruiserweight division – or junior heavyweight as the weight class was also known in its early days – was nothing much of interest to the average boxing fan. And to fighters themselves, the division was nothing more than a stopgap on the way to the glamour and big paydays of the heavyweight division. Not so today.… Read ArticleComments Off on Ranking today’s 10 best cruiserweights

If David Haye’s objective was to impress his celebrity friends in attendance at London’s O2 Arena, then Saturday night’s fanfare complete with bright, flashing laser-lights and thumping loud sound systems would have been just the tonic. The only ingredient missing was a fight. In amongst the It crowd assembled at ringside, spare a thought for any genuine fight fans who had paid good money to watch this debacle. If Haye cares about retaining his boxing … Read ArticleComments Off on David Haye’s Lack of Respect for Real Fight Fans
David Haye-Shannon Briggs, who wins? Go back a couple of months and no-one would have entertained such a question as anything other than a bad joke. Now? The impending collision is still nothing but a curiosity fight at best, a freak show at worst, but it cannot be denied how the two heavyweights with a combined 79 KO’s between them have created quite a buzz.
