Floyd Jr. absolutely knows he can beat him when they face each other in two months on September 14th.

David Price says he’ll rebuild his career; won’t retire

 David Price says he’ll rebuild his career; won’t retireHeavyweight David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) is at the worst point of his still young career following his 5th round TKO loss to American Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s) last Saturday night in Liverpool, UK.

A lot of boxing fans are wondering whether Price will hang up the gloves are not, because at this point his future prospects look pretty bleak in terms of accomplishing anything at the world level or making a lot of money. However, Price says he won’t be retiring. He’s going to be continuing and working his back from the bottom. Continue reading

Haye-Fury bout will be in Manchester, says Peter Fury

 Haye Fury bout will be in Manchester, says Peter FuryWhen trainer Peter Fury was asked if the September 28th fight between unbeaten Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) and former WBA heavyweight champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) would be taking place in Manchester, England, Peter said “It will be Manchester.”

That narrows it down quite a bit. Now the only thing that awaits is for Tyson Fury to put pen on paper to make the fight a reality. It’s difficult to believe that Fury is actually going to take the fight because he’s been so selective in his fights since turning pro; turning down the likes of Deontay Wilder and Kubrat Pulev and instead facing guys like Martin Rogan and Vinny Maddalone.

Left-Hook Lounge Mailbag: Mayweather/Silva, Canelo, Matthysse vs Garcia, & Cotto/Roach!!!!

 Left Hook Lounge Mailbag: Mayweather/Silva, Canelo, Matthysse vs Garcia, & Cotto/Roach!!!!(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Carlos H. (San Francisco, CA): On your FaceBook account you stated that Mayweather should “closely analyze” the defeat of Anderson Silva as he prepares for his bout with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. Explain that statement, as I don’t agree.

Vivek W. (ESB): I think too much has been made of my response to this question. My point was that you don’t just wake up one day and receive the consensus vote as one of, if not thee best of all-time in your craft. Continue reading

Haye Signs Contract For Fury Fight, Awaits Tyson’s Signature

 Haye Signs Contract For Fury Fight, Awaits Tyson’s SignatureDavid Haye has done his part to make the quite mouth-watering all-British heavyweight collision that is Haye Vs. Tyson Fury happen. Haye has today released a video of himself signing the contract for the September 28th bout on Instagram, as well as writing the following statement:

“I’ve just signed to fight Fury on September 28th, let’s hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn’t keep delaying. Word around the camp fire is Fury is looking to duck me and fight Tony “The Tiger” [Thompson]. Let’s hope they are just rumours.”

Haye, of course, hopes a win over Fury will get him another crack at the heavyweight title. Continue reading

Haye signs contract for Fury bout

 Haye signs contract for Fury boutFormer two division world champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) says he’s just signed the contract for a fight against the unbeaten but totally untested 6’9” Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s). Haye is now hoping and praying that Fury doesn’t duck out and choose not to sign his portion of the contract.

David Haye said on his twitter “I’ve just signed to fight Fury on Sep 28, lets hope he finally agrees (and signs today) and he doesn’t keep delaying. Word around “Camp Fire” is Fury is looking to duck me and fight Toney “The Tiger”. Lets hope they are just to rumours.”

Gosh, I hope Fury doesn’t get a case of stage fright and head in the opposite direction for some of the journeyman he’s been building his unbeaten record. I’d hate to see Fury ending up turning down fights against Haye and Kubrat Pulev and then going back to the journeyman circuit to continue to pump up his inflated resume. Continue reading

 Strategy for Mayweather against Canelo(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) When Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather – pure boxer and greatest fighter of his era gets in the ring against Canelo Alvarez on September 14, 2013, several things need to happen for him to end the night undefeated.

As an older fighter, older people in-general don’t just let things happen like children or younger adults do. These youngsters don’t have experience to get in their way so they just let things happen and respond accordingly in an unencumbered way. Continue reading

Sturm knocked Radosevic down three times with body shots in the fight. The fight, if you want to call it that, was stopped in the 4th round after Sturm knocked Radosevic twice in the round. Continue reading

Cotto to be trained by Freddie Roach for Oct 5th comeback; Delvin Rodriguez likely opponent

 Cotto to be trained by Freddie Roach for Oct 5th comeback; Delvin Rodriguez likely opponentMiguel Cotto (37-4, 30 KO’s) will be trained by Freddie Roach when he returns to the ring in a comeback on October 5th. According to ESPN, Delvin Rodriguez is the possible opponent for the 32-year-old Cotto, and HBO will be televising it.

Cotto vs. Rodriguez isn’t exactly an HBO type of main event fight, but hopefully the fight will be packaged with a good undercard, because as it is the fight is a mismatch. Rodriguez has already been beaten by Austin Trout, Ashley Theophane, Rafal Jackiewicz, Jesse Feliciano, Andre Eason, and Isaac Hlatshwayo. Continue reading

Deontay Wilder: Price was too cautious; he needs a conditioning coach

Unbeaten heavyweight talent Deontay Wilder (28-0, 28 KO’s) think David Price (15-2, 13 KO’s) needs work on his conditioning so that he won’t run out of gas in the future like he did last Saturday night in his 5th round TKO loss to Tony Thompson (38-3, 26 KO’s). Wilder also thinks Price needs to be a little less cautious when he fights. Continue reading

It’s unclear how serious the offer is from Fury, but if it’s a serious one it would be a tremendous test for the inexperienced Hughie.

Tyson Fury said on his social media site: “@hughiefury is ready for Price in September. Hughie would do Price.” Continue reading
