Errol Spence Jr Vs Mikey Garcia Results: Undercard

We’ll keep updating this Saturday night Fox Pay-Per-View undercard here in the fashion of the times, chronologically but in reverse. ****** The quick knockout trend lasted right until the penultimate bout of the evening, with super middleweight David Benavidez stopping journeyman J’Leon Love in two rounds.

Shawn Porter Defeats Danny Garcia In Tactically Interesting Battle

In a battle for control of style Saturday night on Showtime — Danny Garcia the technician, Shawn Porter the frantic Cookie Monster — it took a few rounds for Porter to abandon his ill-conceived plan to try to imitate Garcia. But once he started mauling and slinging junk in equal proportion to quality blows, Porter […]

Anthony Joshua Keeps Wrecking Fringe Contenders

For the second fight in a row, heavyweight talent Anthony Joshua put a fringe contender in a vice and exploded him. In Saturday’s fight on Showtime, the vice was applied slowly, but he kept the pressure on until Dominic Breazeale crumpled along the ropes in the 7th round. The difference between Breazeale and Joshua’s last […]

Anthony Joshua Wrecks Charles Martin With Pair Of Rights

Anthony Joshua really could be the future of boxing at heavyweight, and as of Saturday, he creeped into the present of the division. “Creeped” probably isn’t the right word considering the demolition job he did on Charles Martin, but there’s still cause for caution.

There are a couple remarkable things about Manny Pacquiao’s recent remarks on homosexuality. His views in opposition to gay marriage were already well-known; that’s not new, and it’s not cool, nor has it ever been. No, what’s remarkable is the virulent nature of how he’s expressed those views lately, and how unrelenting he has been in […]

Deontay Wilder Struggles, Then Scores Massive KO

Deontay Wilder had his hands full briefly Saturday night on Showtime before those hands eventually found their target on Artur Szpilka’s noggin, ending in a spectacular one-shot knockout. The physically gifted heavyweight finally faced someone with a pulse after a series of no-hopers following his breakthrough early-2015 win over Bermane Stiverne, a win that hinted […]

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!
