Quick Jabs: Manny Pacquiao On Homosexuality; Good Fights In The Works; More

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 […]

Fedor Chudinov, Diego De La Hoya And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Happy (belated) Valentine’s Day. Please take this weird as fuck billboard from Sofia, Bulgaria as a gift (via r/boxing). Nothing says “I love you” like Tyson Fury, after all. Though there are plenty of fights on the boxing schedule this week, it’s virtually all prospects and journeymen. The sole exception is Russia’s Fedor Chudinov, a […]

Spoiled: Gennady Golovkin Vs. Martin Murray Preview And Prediction

The Gennady Golovkin Show is one of boxing’s best shows to watch, one of its worst to co-star in with the man they call GGG. And he just keeps finding better co-stars, this Saturday being Martin Murray, the highest-ranked middleweight he will have faced yet. He’s never aiming anywhere but the top of the division, […]

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 […]

Easiest Hardest: Golovkin Vs. Geale Preview And Prediction

Middleweight’s version of Perun, Gennady Golovkin, faces his best opponent this Saturday on HBO in Daniel Geale, an opponent who has beaten better foes than he has. Such is the mythological might of the man they call GGG that Geale is viewed as a sizable underdog. The longer we go, the more the mythology matches […]

Monaco Results: Martin Murray Uneventfully Defeats Max Bursak

After Saturday, it’s fair to go ahead and assume indefinitely that middleweight Martin Murray will never impress overwhelmingly, but he’ll be good enough to win against 160-pounders of most kinds, which is what he did against Max Bursak by unanimous decision. Murray made his name in a disputed loss against then-champion Sergio Martinez and a […]

Big Fish: Cotto Vs. Martinez Preview And Prediction

First, we talk business. Then, we talk the fight. Sergio Martinez, the 39-year-old middleweight champion of the world, has waited his whole life to fight someone who will give him the kind of payday big-name Miguel Cotto will get him Saturday on HBO Pay-Per-View. Martinez’s 2012 tilt with Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. was probably somewhat […]
