The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Deontay Wilder And David Haye

A big week of heavyweight boxing need a heavyweight mullet. And nobody in boxing has a more heavyweight mullet than Australian heavyweight Mark de Mori (pictured), who’s taking on David Haye on Saturday. In other news: Welcome to 2016! Boxing is back on TV and that’s reason enough to celebrate. I hope you’re feeling nice […]

Seven Predictions For Boxing In 2016

With 2015 in the rear view mirror, it’s time for some black magic. We’re busting out the tarot cards and the crystal ball, and we’re telling boxing’s fortune. Here are TQBR’s predictions for 2016: Heavyweight won’t get exciting just yet We have a new heavyweight champion (pictured, dressed as Batman) after a decade of Klitschko dominance, […]

2015 Knockout Of The Year: Canelo Alvarez Vs James Kirkland

Some knockouts are spectacular — there’s virtually no sight in sport as breathtaking as a person being suddenly and violently removed from consciousness. Others are surprising — upsets and come-from-behind victories, walk off home runs in the bottom of the ninth. Others still are significant within the sport — a championship run ended, a prospect exposed, a stadium packed. The Queensberry Rules’ choice for 2015 Knockout of […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Daniel Jacobs And Peter Quillin

Godzilla, eat your heart out — badly Photoshopped Danny Jacobs and Peter Quillin are trashing New York! Oh God, the humanity! Apart the really bad poster, Jacobs vs Quillin on Showtime is an intriguing fight, and the best offering of the week. The undercard could be fun too. There are also various, less exciting cards […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule Featuring Wladimir Klitschko, Tyson Fury, Erislandy Lara And James DeGale

Puerto Rico and Mexico had their superfight last week, now it’s Germany and the UK’s turn. Tens of thousands will pile into a football stadium to see heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko (pictured sparring with brother Vitali, now a Ukrainian politician) fight buffoon/possibly legit contender Tyson Fury on Saturday, US time. Saturday also sees a free […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Edwin Rodriguez And Frank Galarza

The boxing schedule is late this week (apologies!), but there’s not much on so hopefully you can forgive us. Edwin Edwin Rodriguez vs. Michael Seals, Friday, Spike, Biloxi Miss. Former Andre Ward (who?) victim Rodriguez (27-1, 18 KO) continues on his way against Seals (19-0, 14 KO), at light heavyweight. Seals has hardly beaten anyone with […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Jermell Charlo And Tony Thompson

You know it’s a slow week in boxing when the biggest fight is a Charlo brothers mismatch and the biggest story involves Ronda Rousey. The latter involves her being on the cover of RING Magazine (pictured), and some fans aren’t that impressed since she’s not, you know, a boxer. “Is boxing next?” asks the magazine. […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Terence Crawford, Dierry Jean And Joseph Diaz, Jr.

The picture above is of my face when there are no “Premier Boxing Champions” cards on TV all week. There’s only an HBO fight, a Golden Boy offering and (whaddayaknow) a ShoBox card on Showtime. Let’s party like it’s 2014! Terence Crawford vs Dierry Jean, Saturday, HBO, Omaha Neb. Former lightweight champ turned top junior welterweight contender Crawford […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Gennady Golovkin, David Lemieux, Roman Gonzalez And Andrzej Fonfara

It’s an absolute monster of a week in the boxing schedule. Not only is Kazakh menace Gennady Golovkin headlining his first pay-per-view, there are four (4!) “Premier Boxing Champions” cards on four different networks (seriously, that’s nuts) and much more besides. Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux, Saturday, HBO PPV, New York. Everyone’s favourite adorable/terrifying Kazakh middleweight, […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Julius Jackson And Jorge Linares

That’s Gennady Golovkin above, in a goddamn Apple Watch commercial. I mean, sure, it doesn’t mention him by name, but that’s still huge. His management team have done a crazy job of building him from a virtually unknown import from a non-traditional boxing demographic into a plausible pay-per-view star. But his fight with David Lemieux […]
