Carl Frampton, Francisco Vargas And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

So far, so good for 2017 in boxing, eh? Got us feeling like Scrooge McDuck this weekend. Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz II, Saturday, Showtime, Las Vegas. Showtime’s hot streak of great match-ups continues with a re-pairing of two men who shared the ring for a Fight of the Year-caliber bout. Frampton won the […]

Pound-For-Pound Top 20 Boxers Update, 12/16

Yeah, yeah, it’s “technically” not 2016 anymore, but this serves as the year-end list, mofos. We’ve got a lot of changes since the last update a couple months back, given some un-retirements and big fights that closed out the year. As always, the main standard is quality wins, especially of recent vintage. The eyeball test […]

2016 Fighter Of The Year: Carl Frampton

A Jackal is a wild dog. They look a little differently, and they sound a little differently than the dogs we know, but that’s what they are. They’re opportunists who kill when they must and steal when they can. They work as a team. They are the the kind of creature that we hate to […]

Abner Mares Edges Jesus Cuellar, Jermall Charlo Smashes Julian Williams

Abner Mares took a nip-and-tuck affair Saturday night on Showtime against Jesus Cuellar, an outcome made more obvious with a clutch 11th round knockdown. It was a terrific comeback victory for a man who not that long ago was one of the 10 best fighters in the world, against an opponent who came to battle. […]

Pound-For-Pound Top 20 Boxers Update, 10/16

It’s the kind of pastime you either hate, love to hate, or just find mildly interesting to debate: pound-for-pound updates of the best fighters in the world, regardless of weight. And boy howdy, do we ever have some movement since last time we did one one of these. We have a new man cracking the […]

The Liver Punch: Where’s This Going?

I’m relatively certain that I’ve never written anything complimentary about Vanes Martirosyan. In fact, I’ve probably never given any in or out of the ring action of his more than a perfunctory eye roll. But it’s been a slow couple of weeks and fuck it, here we are. Yesterday, Martirosyan went on a miniature Twitter […]

The Liver Punch: This Is Why We Watch

For A.M. Life is a series of tragedies. The things we love have a habit of disappointing us in the same way that the people we love do. They’re simply not what we hope they are. Mostly they are best they can be, no matter how much we wish it was otherwise. Anytime this happens, […]

Carl Frampton Tops Leo Santa Cruz In A Cracker

The junior featherweight and featherweight divisions have been brimming with match-ups to make boxing drool for some time, and the first couple iterations of those desirable bouts have been compelling yet not outstanding. That changed Saturday night on Showtime when Carl Frampton riveted against Leo Santa Cruz, where the man from Northern Ireland edged a […]

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Leo Santa Cruz And Adonis Stevenson

We have another top-notch boxing match on Saturday! Who knew 2016 could treat us so nice? Earlier, 2016 was like, “Swear I done changed.” And nobody believed it, because 2016 had been a mean mistreater. But now, we believe it. We welcome you back into our crib, 2016, and cradle you in our arms. Leo […]

Pound-For-Pound Top 20 Boxers Update, 5/16

Welcome to our first pound-for-pound list of 2016. If it seems overdue, it’s because the first couple months offered little prospect for movement. The two most recent? That’s been more productive for the best fighters in the world regardless of weight. Manny Pacquiao’s departure shakes thing up a little, and Takashi Uchiyama’s loss leaves another […]

Carl Frampton, Scott Quigg, Leo Santa Cruz And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

It’s boxing, so of course after weeks and week of virtually nothing on television, there are head-to-head cards on the two major premium cable networks this weekend. When it rains… Carl Frampton vs Scott Quigg, Saturday, Showtime Extreme, Manchester. This long-awaited match-up of British junior featherweight contenders is easily the fight of the week, and thankfully Showtime have picked […]
