A Life’s Ambition: Josh Taylor Defeats Jose Carlos Ramirez

Imagine you’ve had a goal since childhood. It doesn’t matter what it is, but it becomes the critical motivator in your personal and professional life. Now, imagine you acheived it.

Josh Taylor Vs. Jose Carlos Ramirez Preview And Prediction Roundtable

The entire point of competition is to determine who is the best. Singular.

The Liver Punch: Spoiled For Choice

If you aren’t prepared to be a hermit, no matter where you go, you’ll have to deal with complaints. It doesn’t matter how good life is, there will be someone bitching about some aspect of what’s going on. This is obviously amplified by social media, but it generally is a safe assumption that the whiners […]

The Absence Of Doubt: Taylor Defeats Prograis

The gap between belief and knowledge can be vast. Or it can be 12 rounds. Last Saturday night, the World Boxing Super Series junior welterweight final on DAZN produced a compelling case study in what the difference looks like. American Regis Prograis entered the bout eager to test himself so that he could find out, […]
