Best Served Cold: Jermell Charlo Gets Revenge On Tony Harrison

“He earned it. I hate it, but he earned it.” That was a dejected Tony Harrison after his 11th round TKO loss to Jermell Charlo on Saturday night, and despite being the exact thing the judge told my ex upon granting me full custody of our Super Nintendo, this wasn’t Harrison so much squashing a […]

Guillermo Rigondeaux Gets Bailed Out Of Surprising War

Jermell Charlo was the headliner on Fox Sports Sunday, so we’ll get to that in a sec, but the fight really worth talking about — for reasons both good and ill — was Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Julio Ceja.

They won’t be relaxed in the ring come Saturday night, though; it’s certainly the most action-guaranteed fight of the year so far. Apart from […]

Mismatches And A Monster: Tony Harrison Stops Antwone Smith On FNF

Friday night from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, junior middleweight Tony Harrison used his blistering hand speed to stop shopworn Antwone Smith in two rounds on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights. Harrison (20-0, 17 KO) knocked Smith down with a long right hand late in the first. Smith (23-6, 12 KO) beat the count, […]
