Deontay Wilder Stops Luis Ortiz In Thrill Ride

Deontay Wilder is not a boxer. Luis Ortiz is. Both men have power. But Deontay Wilder stopped Luis Ortiz thanks to said power Saturday night on Showtime Saturday in a roller coaster of a heavyweight fight. The superior boxer won almost every round Saturday through 10, that being Ortiz, the Cuban amateur great. Even a […]

Dirrells Both Notch Wins In Atlantic City

Having your post fight interview be the most entertaining aspect of your performance is fine if you’re Victor Ortiz, but Andre Dirrell is no Vinny Facelube in the entertainment department in or out of the ring. Friday night from the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, Dirrell (25-2-0, 16 KO) got a unanimous decision against […]

Andre Berto, Victor Ortiz, Andre Dirrell And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Carl Froch, The Man Who Wasn’t There

If you ever wondered why Carl Froch was always trying to convince you how great he was — and chances are you rolled your eyes or gritted your teeth at least once during one of his arrogant rants — you need look no further than his whole career. No matter what he did, nobody really took him […]

James DeGale Beats Andre Dirrell In Surprisingly Good Fight

James DeGale and Andre Dirrell waged a close battle Saturday on NBC — and it was actually a battle, contrary to our expectations of a hunt-and-peck affair — and DeGale came out on top by decision, despite visiting from the U.K. and taking on the “house” fighter. The two super middleweights took turns being totally […]

Quick Jabs: Ratings Galore, Great Knockouts, Swell Fights

Wouldn’t that headline just convince you everything was A-OK in boxing? Well you’d be wrong, is what you’d be. But there are some fine things, like that Amir Mansour knockout above. It’s in the KO of the Year discussion with another recent knockout, Wladimir Klitschko-Kubrat Pulev. We’ll have some other videos sprinkled throughout this edition […]

Taylor Beats Soliman, One Of Several Possible “Ugh” Results

Sam Soliman vs. Jermain Taylor on ESPN2 Wednesday night was a can’t-win fight. Nobody was going to come out of this making anyone feel warm and fuzzy. At least Taylor (complete with brain bleed and recent bizarre behavior) didn’t take a beating that made everyone fear for his health — on the contrary, he secured […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Sam Soliman, Jermain Taylor, Andre Dirrell And Carlos Molina

The above video of Jermain Taylor looks like it was made by someone who is definitely not crazy and wouldn’t shoot their cousin… right? Apart from the former middleweight champ/brain-injury-sufferer, there are a few fights on TV, though they’re nothing to write home about (unless you’re one of the boxers fighting, in which case I think at least […]
