So That’s Why Evander Keeps Fighting

I often wondered why Evander Holyfield, clearly way past his boxing prime, decided to keep fighting in the ring, even to the point of endangering himself. Not only was the old man ruining his record with every fight past the age of 40, but he was also getting beat up pretty bad. I was critical…Read More

Bernard Hopkins Beaten by ‘White Boy’

It really didn’t get much attention when Hopkins made his initial comment, and it certainly slipped by our pages here. But in case you missed it, light heavyweight boxer Bernard Hopkins said prior to his fight with super middleweight Joe Calzaghe from Wales, “I would never let a white boy beat me. I couldn’t go…Read More

Zab Judah Wants Mosley Drug Tested

Zab Judah and Shane Mosley agreed to fight at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on May 31st a few weeks ago. It’s an intriguing fight because both men still are big names in the sport and were amongst the most talented fighters in the world not long ago.

Floyd Mayweather Thrown Out of the Ring by Big Show

I told you recently about Floyd Mayweather Jr. agreeing to wrestle the gargantuan Big Show for $20 million.

Judges Used Open Scoring for Peter vs. Maskaev Fight

Heavyweights Samuel Peter and Oleg Maskaev fought Saturday night in Cancun, for all those who missed it. The fight wasn’t as much exciting as it was progressive in procedure. Michael David Smith points out at FanHouse that the judges used open scoring, meaning their scores were announced after each round. If you recall, I had…Read More

Evander Holyfield recently revealed that Mike Tyson’s people have approached him about fighting Iron Mike once again. Call me crazy, call me strange, call me in a Mike Tyson frame of mind, but my ears perk up to the news that Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield are considering a third fight. The details as told…Read More

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Getting $20 Million to Make Wrestling Debut

There were rumors that Pretty Boy was contemplating a future in MMA. That’s no surprise considering the relationship he struck up with Mark Cuban who owns HDNet (and a little something called the Dallas Mavericks). Anyway, the offers from MMA must not have been enticing enough for PBF who’s looking to score another big payday…Read More

Do We Really Need a Mayweather vs. De La Hoya Rematch?

Back when these two met up in May, I analyzed the bout so well pre-fight that I nailed the outcome. Why is that? Because a matchup between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is quite predictable; Oscar is bigger and stronger while Floyd is younger and more skilled. Therefore, Mayweather will outpoint De…Read More
