Maybe we should call him Anthony “Money” Joshua. That nickname is of course exclusive property of one Floyd Mayweather Junior; currently the richest, most successful prize fighter in boxing history. However, as stinking rich as he is, Mayweather never earned himself the staggering total of a $billion.
Josesito Lopez (35-7, 19 KOs) earned a decisive unanimous decision (100-89, 100-89, 100-89) over Saul Corral (21-9, 12 KOs) in the Ringstar Sports promoted main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 & FOX Deportes from The Novo at L.A. Live.
Although Corral was able to finish the fight, Lopez controlled the action throughout, dropping Corral to the canvas in the 10th round to cement the victory.… Read Article

Manuel Charr wants a big fight. Perhaps any big fight. Today, in Cologne, Germany, at the fitness expo FIBO, “Diamond Boy” Charr had his game face firmly on as he sought out Tyson Fury. Fury was all smiles, offering his hand to the more serious looking Charr, but soon enough the duo had to be separated.
Charr, who has seen big fights fall through in the past (he was, like Fury, supposed to land a … Read Article
Reigning WBO super-featherweight king Vasyl Lomachenko looked utterly unstoppable in halting a brave but outclassed Jason Sosa last night. Forcing Sosa’s corner to retire their warrior after nine wholly one-sided session, “Hi-Tech” looked for all the world like an unbeaten fighter.
As we know, however, Lomachenko, 8-1(6) is not unbeaten; as hard as it may be to believe when you see such utter dominance over good fighters who are made to retire on their stool … Read Article
British warrior George Groves is determined to not go down in history as one of the best fighters from these shores never to have won a world title. Groves, skilled, powerful and full of heart and guts, has failed to lift world honours on three occasions: being stopped twice by Carl Froch (controversially/prematurely in the first fight) and losing a close decision to Badou Jack.
Now, the Londoner will face Fedor Chudinov for the WBA … Read Article

The fight was stopped at the urging of Sosa’s corner at the end of the 9th.

In an example of very generous scoring, World Boxing Organization lightweight title holder Terry Flanagan (33-0, 13 KOs) held onto his title in defeating the much tougher than expected Petr Petrov (38-5-2, 19 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. … Read Article
Tonight in Manchester, 19 year old heavyweight sensation Daniel Dubois of London made his pro debut; winning a quite pathetic mismatch inside a minute of the very first round. Going up against an extremely fleshy Marcus Kelly, 1-0, the amateur standout had nothing to beat and put his debut win in the bank at the .35 second mark of the opener.
Kelly, so much the shorter man against the 6’7” Dubois, came out swinging, giving … Read Article
WBC light-heavyweight king Adonis Stevenson has officially announced his next fight: “Superman” will face tough Polish warrior Andrzej Fonfara in a return bout on June 3 in Canada.
Fonfara, as fans may recall, made a big name for himself back in May of 2014, when, as a 25-2 contender, he pushed Stevenson hard, dropped him late, and lost a highly competitive 12 round decision. A lot has happened to both fighters since.… Read Article
