Emanuel Navarrete beats Joet Gonzalez in brutal battle

Emanuel Navarrete successfully made the second defence of his WBO featherweight world title by beating Joet Gonzalez on points after a hard fight. The judges gave in cards of 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112, I thought these cards fairly represented the fight. Navarrete and Gonzalez got off to a fast start and kept that pace upContinue reading “Emanuel Navarrete beats Joet Gonzalez in brutal battle”

Boxing starts from the ground up

Boxing is often remembered by fans for the big nights involving thousands of people and some of the greatest fighters to step into the ring. This is only logical as those are the nights and sights that most people see and the big nights don’t come around to often so they are special memories forContinue reading “Boxing starts from the ground up”

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”

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.”
