Fury will win the press conferences; Haye will win fight

 Fury will win the press conferences; Haye will win fightDavid Haye (26-2, 24 KO’s) and Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) will be meeting up on September 28th at the Manchester Arena, in Manchester, UK. This Thursday, Haye and Fury will be announcing the fight. The fight itself promises to be a rather easy one for Haye, because Fury hasn’t looked good against the mediocre opposition he’s faced thus during his 5 year pro career.

However, Fury should at least win the press conference this Thursday and all the remaining press conferences as well. Haye will likely let Fury do most of the talking in building this fight, because his chances of getting the better of Fury in the trash talking department are slim and none.

Fury is one of those types of fighters that are willing and ready to say anything. He tends to get heated when his opponents try and trash talk him back. Continue reading

Abraham pushes himself hard for Shihepo

 Abraham pushes himself hard for Shihepo(Photo credit: Team Sauerland) Arthur Abraham (36-4, 28 KOs) is convinced that soon he will be a world champion once again. But before he can even start to think about another crack at a world title, the 33-year-old has to get past his next opponent. The prodigy of coach Ulli Wegner takes on Willbeforce Shihepo (20-6, 15 KOs) at the Sport- und Kongresshalle Schwerin, Germany on August 24.

Abraham, a former Middle- and Super-Middleweight Titlist, is currently undergoing a tense preparation under the guidance of Wegner´s assistant Georg Bramowski. “I know that I have to look ahead and train as hard as I can. Shihepo is very uncomfortable to box and varies his style during a fight. He is a brawler, so I have to be on my toes”, said the super-middleweight. To make sure that he does not take his 30-year-old foe lightly, Ulli Wegner had some warning words. “Before Mr. Wegner went on holiday, he made it clear what I have to do during his absence. Therefore, I am giving it my all.” Continue reading

De La Hoya: Quillin’s the best middleweight in the division; he destroys everyone

 De La Hoya: Quillin’s the best middleweight in the division; he destroys everyone Oscar De La Hoya of Golden Boy Promotions thinks his champion WBO middleweight belt holder Peter Quillin (29-0, 21 KO’s) is the best fighter in the 160 lb. division right now, and it appears that De La Hoya thinks WBA champion Gennady Golovkin is still unproven.

De La Hoya wants Golovkin to face Quillin’s recent victim former WBO middleweight champion Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, presumably in some kind of weeding out thing to get to Quillin.

De La Hoya said on his social media site “Hey Kid Chocolate how does it feel to be the best middleweight on the planet. My man Kid Chocolate will destroy any middleweight out there. I wanna see Golovkin vs. Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam and then I’ll see if he’s good or not.” Continue reading

Mayweather Sr: Floyd Jr. isn’t afraid of Canelo

 Mayweather Sr: Floyd Jr. isn’t afraid of Canelo(Photo credit: Esther Lin/Showtime) Floyd Mayweather Sr. says his son Floyd Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) has seen all there is to see of undefeated WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (42-0-1, 30 KO’s0 and he’s not worried in the least about whether or not he can beat the 22-year-old fighter. Floyd Jr. absolutely knows he can beat him when they face each other in two months on September 14th.

Mayweather Sr. said to Hustleboss “My son has fought enough fights to let me know what he sees and what he thinks. There’s no fear in Mayweather; no fear there.” Continue reading

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

 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
