One to watch : Alfred Lamptey

Alfred Lamptey is a 19 year old featherweight prospect from Ghana who recently won his first professional title in a step up in competition. I watched the fight and was impressed with what I saw and I think in the future he could reach world title contention. Throughout the fight Lamptey stayed consistent in jabbingContinue reading “One to watch : Alfred Lamptey”

Gamboa : From Champion to journeyman

Yuriorkis Gamboa in his prime was a very good fighter who was seen as the best in his division at least at featherweight. He moved up in weight to super feather where he picked up an interim title but didn’t make much of a splash in the division. Up to this point his career wasContinue reading “Gamboa : From Champion to journeyman”

Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury most likely cancelled

The mega-fight between Joshua and Fury has most likely been cancelled after a judge ruled that Fury contractually owed Wilder a third fight. Fury and Wilder will likely face off some time in July or August with the winner hopefully fighting whoever holds the rest of the belts. It’s disappointing that we won’t see anContinue reading “Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury most likely cancelled”

Canelo stops Billy Joe Saunders in eight rounds

Canelo Alvarez put on a good performance and unified three belts in the super middleweight division by stopping Saunders at the end of the eighth round after Saunders retired in his corner due to an injury to his eye. I expect Canelo to attempt to become undisputed soon at super middleweight as that seems toContinue reading “Canelo stops Billy Joe Saunders in eight rounds”

Billy Joe Saunders threatens to pull out of Canelo fight over ring size

In what is one of the more bizarre reasons for threatening to pull out of a fight Billy Joe Saunders has decided hes not happy with the ring being its usual size and wants a larger one. He wants a 24ft ring which as far as i’m aware isn’t even allowed by the commission theContinue reading “Billy Joe Saunders threatens to pull out of Canelo fight over ring size”

Perhaps its time for Bob Arum to retire.

It looks like Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury isn’t going to happen next which is fairly pathetic in my opinion and isn’t a good look from an outside perspective of the sport. It was bad enough the fight wasn’t going to be in the UK but now it seems it won’t happen at all dueContinue reading “Perhaps its time for Bob Arum to retire.”

Jaime Munguia versus D’Mitrius Ballard off after Ballard suffers injury

The fight between Munguia and Ballard has been cancelled after Ballard suffered an injury this week. Munguia is going to have to fight on a whole new fight date now which is a shame. To have two opponents pull out close to fight week is unlucky and I feel bad for Munguia and all theContinue reading “Jaime Munguia versus D’Mitrius Ballard off after Ballard suffers injury”

Jaime Munguia versus Maciej Sulecki cancelled

This fight has been cancelled after Sulecki picked up an injury though I personally think it was more to do with Sulecki not having long to prepare and also getting no sparring for this fight. He stated on twitter a few weeks ago that he was unsure about taking the fight as he would haveContinue reading “Jaime Munguia versus Maciej Sulecki cancelled”
