Rather than mentioning Gennady Golovkin, Andre Ward should finally fight

During a recent interview with Boxing Scene, Andre Ward ridiculously asserted that Gennady Golovkin is afraid to throw fists. Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) will defend the WBA and IBO middleweight belts against Australian Daniel Geale on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. In stark contrast to GGG, the 30-year-old Ward (27-0, 14 KOs) has become a glorified spectator who is strictly determined to trash his agreement with Dan Goossen. “It’s a little different situation,” said Golovkin, 32, who took an extended break following the death of his father on February 18. “My story is my story and Andre’s story is … Continue reading

Roy Jones Jr. is an eroded boxing legend

Claiming to “still got it,” shopworn boxing icon Roy Jones Jr. will throw fists with Courtney Fry on Saturday night at the Kipsala Exhibition Centre in Riga, Latvia. Jones (57-8, 40 KOs) last vacated the ring on December 21 after earning a unanimous decision over Frenchman Zine Eddine Benmakhlouf. Comparatively, the 39-year-old (18-5, 6 KOs) Fry has lost two consecutive bouts since defeating journeyman Matty Clarkson in October 2012. “I know he’ll give it all he got, which is what I want from any opponent,” said Jones, 45, who was planning to run for mayor this autumn in Pensacola, Florida. … Continue reading

Argentinean great Sergio Martinez will wrongly continue to box

Sergio Martinez will not retire from prizefighting and he expects to regain a crown in the near future. In an extraordinarily dominant performance, Miguel Cotto stopped the 39-year-old Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KOs) six seconds into the 10th round to capture the WBC middleweight championship on June 7 at Madison Square Garden. Meeting at a maximum weight of 159 pounds, the 5-foot-7 Cotto (39-4, 32 KOs) sacrificed size, speed and power against the 5-foot-10 Martinez (51-3-2, 28 KOs). Nevertheless, the 33-year-old Cotto floored Martinez three times in the first and once more in the ninth and was ahead 90-77 on all … Continue reading

Manny Pacquiao is ‘not afraid to face’ Chris Algieri

Speaking with Philboxing.com, Manny Pacquiao confirmed that he will fight ballsy New Yorker Chris Algieri on November 23 at the Venetian Casino & Resort in Macau, China. “I’m not afraid to face anybody in the ring,” said Pacquiao, 35, who outclassed Brandon Rios last November at the same Asian venue. The 30-year-old Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) captured the WBO junior welterweight belt by winning a debatable split decision over Russian badass Ruslan Provodnikov on June 14. A merciless assaulter with cement fists and a granite chin, the 30-year-old Provodnikov (23-3, 16 KOs) floored Algieri twice in the opening round. Oozing … Continue reading

Marcos Maidana is ready to fight Floyd Mayweather and claims ‘the gloves are not a big issue’

During a Monday conference call with reporters, Marcos Maidana said he wants to wear Everlast MX gloves against Floyd Mayweather in their upcoming rematch. Maidana (35-4, 31 KOs) claims he doesn’t “hit that hard” and isn’t a slugger like Canelo Alvarez. The 37-year-old Mayweather (46-0, 26 KOs) outclassed the 24-year-old Alvarez (44-1-1, 31 KOs) in September 2013. “I want to use my gloves. I don’t hit that hard. I don’t hit as hard as Canelo,” said Maidana, 30, who was prohibited from donning eight ounce mitts versus Mayweather in their initial bout in May. “But the gloves are not a … Continue reading
