Kosei Tanaka defended his flyweight strap by an exciting stoppage again, defeating Jonathan Gonzalez.  Tanaka went through several rough patches during the fight but rallied.

Stop Caring About Adrien Broner

Seriously, do it. You’re free. You don’t have to live like this. Unburden yourself from the psychological debt accrued by watching potential squandered in real-time. I absolve you. Go outside. Eat an egg. Learn to do a backflip. Your time on earth is finite and valuable. In the first “A Nightmare on Elm Street” movie, […]

Score One For The Fat Guy: Bellew Bests Haye

On an emotional night at London’s O2 Arena (the former Millennium Dome in Greenwich), logic took a back seat as Tony “Bomber” Bellew overcame red hot favorite David Haye in eleven dramatic rounds at heavyweight that not even the most hackneyed screenwriter could have conjured up. Former Hollywood star Bellew continued to erase memories of […]

The Liver Punch: Flawed Gods And Relatable Heroes

It’s easy to love what we perceive to be perfect. It’s a childish impulse, but one to which all of us have fallen prey. Everyone has had a relationship that seemed destined for greatness fall apart when the vulnerabilities of one or both parties came to light. We either recoil in horror because we are […]

Rearviewmirror: A Look Back At Boxing In 2015

2015 was a strange year for boxing. Like “Charles In Charge,” we took a lot of “bad” to go with the “good.” We got huge fights like Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao, free fights like Keith Thurman vs Robert Guerrero, and no fights like Showtime. New stars emerged, while some faded away before our eyes. Lineal […]

They Might Be Giants: Tyson Fury Will Make Wladimir Klitschko Fun For A Night

You know the overused movie plot where the boring, super-uptight guy meets the wild, crazy girl who finally shows him how to let loose and have fun? That’s what Saturday’s heavyweight title fight on HBO between Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury has going for it. Except in this case, the boring dude is the reigning […]

I See No Changes: Adrien Broner Says He’s A New Man; It Doesn’t Matter

Well the good news is that Adrien Broner is really super serious about fighting again. No more shenanigans. Straight and narrow. No more games.

When The Devil Answers The Door: Amir Khan Just Might Get What He Wants

Amir Khan has been pounding on doors for awhile. He spent years chasing the best boxer in the eorld, Floyd Mayweather, to no avail.

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Deontay Wilder And Shinsuke Yamanaka

(picture via) “And the little ones shall lead them.” Where was that said? The Bible? Nostradamus in “Les Propheties?” Nowhere, you say? It’s the story of this week on the boxing schedule, regardless. One of the world’s biggest and best heavyweights is in action, albeit in a letdown match-up, while people under 120 pounds will […]
